Idyllic rural location
These two semi-detached barn conversions (refs 29496 and 29497), accessed by a single track road and adjacent to the owner’s home, are perched in an idyllic, rural, south-west facing position above the village of Eglwysbach, but close to the National Trust’s famous Bodnant Gardens. With original artwork by a local artists throughout, these lovely holiday properties offer stunning views out over the mountains of Snowdonia from their secluded location, where you can also watch buzzards and red kites wheeling in the valley below. Being in a central location between Conwy and Snowdonia, these cottages are perfectly located for all the activities that Snowdonia National Park has to offer. Discover the walkers routes which are directly from the properties in 3 directions. Both cottages are full of character and charm, with a host of original features, including woodburners, exposed oak beams and high galleried ceilings, and both are furnished in a charming, classic style with travertine floor tiles, underfloor heating on the ground floor and Canadian white oak flooring throughout the bedrooms. Both properties benefit from a heat recovery system, which extracts moisture, cleans the air and recovers the heat with only a 2 degree loss in temperature, making these properties ‘green’, as well as being great for allergy sufferers as there is no dust build-up in the air. A stroll around pretty Bodnant Gardens is a delightful experience, particularly when the Laburnum Arch is in flower. Explore Bodnant Welsh Foods Centre, a complex of restaurants, cafes, delicatessen, butchers, honey shop, an icecream parlour and a cookery school, can be found 2 miles away. Just a short drive is Conwy, with its majestic Edward I castle, the historic houses of Aberconway House (NT) and Plas Mawr (Cadw), and the quay where fresh fish is landed daily. Victorian Llandudno is also within easy reach, with the Great Orme Tramway just one of the routes to the summit of the headland, as well as a swimming pool, theatre and a range of shopping opportunities.
