Lovely comfortable converted cottage in the heart of Beaumaris, Anglesey.

My home is a lovely warm comfortable, reburbished cottage in the heart of Beaumaris town. 5 minutes from the beach and two minutes from country lanes. It has 3 lovely airy bedrooms ,all are double size with lots of storage space. Bathroom with walk-in shower a bath and airing cupboard. Downstairs is mostly open plan, its light and very comfortable with nice furniture, laminate flooring and modern rugs throughout (carpet upstairs). There are two big couches a stove, hi-fi, wifi. The kitchen is hand painted with fridge/freezer hob and stove, dishwasher and lots of utensils and gadgets, a coffee grinding machine and various coffee makers! The conservatory which stretches across the back of the house is light filled with a huge comfy couch, dining table, washing machine (in cabinet) double french doors to small courtyard with raised pond and leafy plants plus 2 huge tree ferns.

Big chestnut wooden doors in the garden wall lead into the separate studio building which has had a history of Artists and writers working and living in. (I`m looking to either swap one or both buildings. the studio has its own entrance and can be shut off from the main house.) Ive no problem letting another artist use the space as long as the agreement is reciprocated!!
The studio is large and mostly open plan, it has huge doors that can separate the main working area from the kitchen/dining area or it can be used as one big living space. There are two very comfy sleeping mezzanine lofts - One loft is bright with a double bed and massive windows looking out to the sky, the other is cosy and darker with tiny slit windows. It has a new kitchen with the usual appliances and a wet room and utility room. The main room has high ceilings, contemporary woodburner/multifuel stove, lots of books, Tv and a great adobe feature wall which looks fab when lit up at night! Its very cosy in the winter when the fire is lit and well insulated. As well as the woodburner there is central heating. Private entrance through own garden. Its a very interesting building and very close to the great shops, pubs and restaurants in Beaumaris.

There is a golf course nearby. 5 mins from beach and castle. 2 mins from country lanes. Great if you want a romantic break or to hide away!Beaumaris is a great place for a holiday, its right on the Menai straits and the Snowden range is directly over the water. Kayaking, boating, golfing, bowls, walking, hiking, bike riding are just a few of the great things that you can do..I`m more than happy to give more suggestions or answer any queries about facilities. There is space in the house for bikes and a kayak comfortably!

About the location

I`ve lived in Beaumaris for 20years. It`s a small town with a big heart! The sea is never far away and the mountains just beyond. In recent years more shops have opened, all individual, selling lovely things! We have a small supermarket and the big chain stores/supermarkets are just a 15 minute drive away in the University town of Bangor on the mainland. Anglesey has the most gorgeous beaches, sandy/ rocky you`ll find any type of beach here, and they arent busy, most of them are long and sandy with shallow sea. Beaumaris and the Island has lots of amazing restaurants serving gormet food, vegan/vegetarian and many of which are award winning. In the town of Beaumaris there are 5 pubs and a castle/gaol/courtroom/pier. There is so much to do! And Dublin is a 90 minute ferry ride from Holyhead at the other end of the island, you can get day trips right into Dublin. Liverpool 90mins, Manchester 90mins, The train from Bangor serves all these places and more. Chester is an hour away.
If you use public transport I can send you details of how to get here and of car hire should you need it.
If there is anything else you need to know please contact me, I`m happy to answer questions. Diolch. ( Welsh for thank you).
