House in Beaumaris, Wales

Our home is on a hillside overlooking Beaumaris town and the Menai Strait.  We have dramatic views along the North Wales coastline from the Great Orme at Llandudno in the East to the Glyder mountains in Snowdonia in the West, a distance of about 30 kilometres.  The house is on a cul-de-sac where there is little traffic and to the rear of the house is mature woodland. It is therefore very quiet here.

The main accommodation is at the upstairs level to take full advantage of the views - conservatory, lounge/dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom, cloakroom and office.  At the downstairs level, there is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, study and laundry room.  The two bathrooms, and the kitchen, were completely refurbished in 2009/2010.

The town of Beaumaris has about 2000 inhabitants and has a very long history. King Edward I built his last castle here in 1294 and the ruins of the castle may be visited. The parish church dates from the early 1300's. The town has some very old buildings dating from the 1600's. One of these, the Olde Bull's Head Hotel, has one of the finest restaurants in Wales. The town has a range of shops including a small supermarket.

Anglesey is a paradise for people who like walking. There are coastal routes, forests, nature reserves and a wealth of historical sites to see along the way. It is also a haven for the native red squirrels which visit our garden every day. Nearby, on the mainland, the mountains of Snowdonia, the Lleyn Peninsula, Portmeirion, Betws-y-Coed, the castles at Conwy and Caernarfon, and the Welsh Highland Railway can all be reached easily by car. The high speed ferry at Holyhead makes it possible to spend a day in Dublin.

We are both retired professional people and are non-smokers. We have no pets.
