Property Description

The Towers is a substantial harbour master’s mansion (for a harbour that was never made), and was built by John Platt in 1872. On a grand scale of over 5000 square feet, in a Gothic chateau style, it has been refurbished to an excellent standard. Located yards from the beach, this detached property boasts flexible holiday accommodation including a fine cinema room with a beautiful hand painted domed ceiling, dining room with seating for 20 people, beach room, library and games room. There is also a large kitchen with breakfast room, ten bedrooms and living room. Of particular note is the superb Balinese bedroom with its ornate beamed and Hessian ceiling which like many rooms, including the fantastic lantern tower, benefits from magnificent views across to the Isle of Anglesey and Puffin Island. The lawned garden has an attractive ornamental pond with a Japanese three-tier fountain surrounded by a 9-hole putting green. The driveway extends to the rear of the property where there is a further garden area and small orchard and parking for 10 vehicles.
The walled town of Conwy lies close by between Llandudno and Bangor, and with the West Coast train line passing through both towns, London is only 3 hours away. Conwy is home to an elegant 13th-century castle built by Edward I, as well as other buildings of note - such as the 14th-century timber and stone Aberconwy House (NT), the splendid Plas Mawr and what is reputed to be the smallest house in Britain. For art lovers, there is the Royal Cambrian Academy (where displays of Welsh artists’ work are shown during the annual summer exhibition). As well as being the major shopping town for the area, Llandudno is also home to Venue Cymru theatre which has a range of touring productions. The town also has two beaches and the famous views from the top of the Great Orme (679ft), jutting out into the Irish Sea, which can be explored by tramway, cable car or on foot. In the other direction is Ynys Môn (the Isle of Anglesey) with its 125 miles of coastline of fantastic beaches and rocky coves. For walkers, there are plenty of routes to explore - including The Cambrian Way which begins in Conwy, and winds its 274 miles to Cardiff, passing through some of Wales’ most wonderful upland scenery, and taking in the Carneddau, the Glyders, the Snowdon Massif, Cadair Idris and the Brecon Beacons. Bodnant Garden is a further attraction in the area for visitors, providing displays of rhododendrons and laburnum in May/June and other colour throughout the year. Horse riding nearby. Ideal for golf. Station 100 yards. Shops and pub ½ mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This is the most wonderful location for a special occasion. Lovely rooms, beds very comfortable. Really good supply crockery etc. Sea views. Local shops excellent we used the local shops exclusively and found them very good. May 2012.
  2. Fantastic location, a fabulous house, everything you need is provided for. The welcome pack was fantastic, we didn’t expect that. Very warm and cosy. Once you make the trip up the tower it is well worth the effort for the delightful views.Would definitely recommend a stay at the Towers and will return one day. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. March 2012.
  3. An absolutely fabulous house. Plenty of room, we had 18 people including children who said that they thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. It was excellent that we were not on top of everyone and would recommend the towers and have done so to friends and colleagues. We are looking forward to going back very soon. Dec 2011.
  4. This property provided enough space for 16 adults, one child at 3 plus four babies/toddlers, with bedrooms and space to spare. The welcome pack was good when you first land, along with the tour with the caretaker. Its a unique building that adds to the relaxing weekend away. The shops in the village are 5min away, I would recommend the Chinese! Its better than average, the indian was a little hot. The pubs are okay, and all essential shops are in the village. You can walk into the hills from the property, through the village and through the nature reserve. The boating lake and promenade made it suitable for all the guests. Conway just down the road is worth an afternoon out. There are enough bathrooms, and smaller rooms for those that want to get away from it for a while. The garden is good for toddlers running around. I highly recommend this property. Its oozing with Character, whilst still having all the modern comforts. April 2011.
  5. The size, the space, the number of rooms, the equipment. The interesting old house. Oct 2010.
  6. Beautiful, exciting place to stay in a wonderful location. Sept 2010.
  7. Nice location, excellent condition of the facilities and caretaker is very warm. we’re touched by their gesture of providing us a hamper full of basic necessities...will recommend to friends. April 2010.
  8. This accommodation was absolutely perfect for us and we couldn’t have had better. March 2010.
  9. The towers is a one off. Some of the decor is amazing, literally Art. The entertaining spaces are top notch. March 2010.
  10. It’s a fantastic place, plenty of space and a beautiful location with spectacular views. Everyone in our party would go back there again and it was very warm and cosy for such a large house! Feb 2010.
  11. A property of real character, well equipped, practical and clearly once much loved by the family it belonged to. Unanimously approved of by three generations ... even for a December holiday! Outside, location ideal for cycling, hiking, gentle walking, fishing and twitching (whatever takes your fancy!). Highly recommended. Nov 2009.
  12. We loved the decor, especially the painted ceiling in the cinema room. The rooms were spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Nov 2009.
  13. Great size. Even with 20 people the house did not feel at all full. Large well equiped bedrooms, but matresses were all a bit soft. Needs some way of blacking out the cinema room, otherwise impossible to watch TV in the house during the day. Property would have befitted with more information about what to do around the area and a history of the building. Nov 2009.
  14. The Towers was a fantastic property for our large group to holiday in. There was plenty of space so that you did not feel as if you were on top of each other. There was also a great outdoor space for the children and adults to enjoy and plenty of room for parking. June 2009.
  15. A good place for large parties. Dec 2008.
  16. The Towers was such a fantastic experience, from the moment we walked in we were overwhelmed with the spender of the property, the pictures were great but the real thing was amazing. May 2008.
  17. Fantastic character house with loads of space for 20 people and easy access to all the adventures of North Wales and Angelsey. Nov 2008.
  18. Bedrooms in old part of property really something special, also great location and locals very friendly and helpful - even to Londoners! Oct 2007.
  19. The caretaker made the whole party feel so welcome, and helped so much with all aspects of the stay, she made a real difference. July 2007.
