Overview

About the property

Recently Renovated Two Bedroom Victorian Town-house, Overlooking Conwy Castle.

Two bedrooms (1 twin, 1 double en suite), one bathroom, spacious lounge and dining area with sensational views across the river Conwy and over to Snowdonia. One large kitchen and a terrace area for alfresco relaxation. Our popular, French bistro is located beneath. A secluded beach is 5 minutes walk away. Ours is a relaxing base from which to explore some truly breathtaking and memorable sights, including the dazzling Bodnant Gardens, the Victorian promenades of Llandudno, the rustic walks and rivers of Betws y Coed, Snowdon and some of the finest hill-walking in the UK, and the newly opened, already world-famous Surf Snowdonia up the Conwy valley.

About Cai Ross

Bob and Barbara Ross at your service. We moved to Deganwy in 1988 to open a French country-style restaurant, which we ran here for over 15 years - Barbara being quite the Francophile and a natural in the kitchen. All the while we lived above the restaurant with our two children. Before that, we had been running a successful country pub near Corwen, having spent the previous decade farming in the hills above Ruthin. During that time, I played double-bass with the Merseysippi Jazz Band, which led to me jetting off regularly to America to perform in jazz festivals, with Barbara as my chief groupie. Since "retiring" in 2003, we have lived in the Languedoc in south-west France, in a succession of self-renovated cottages. It is an ideal location to indulge one of our other great passions: wine. Whenever we find a new and exciting wine, we ship it back over to the restaurant to sell exclusively.

Cai Ross purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Cai Ross chose Deganwy

We fell in love with Deganwy as soon as we spotted it. We were keen sailors with a boat restoration project in the offing. As such, Deganwy was ideally located for us on the river Conwy, an extremely popular area for skippers from all over the world. We also found that, having lived a rural existence for so long, Deganwy was a remarkably central location. It is less than an hour's driving distance from Liverpool, Chester, Portmeirion, Snowdonia and Beaumaris. We recently used our renovation skills to transform this waterfront-set family home into an extremely comfortable holiday flat for others to enjoy.

What makes this apartment unique

Like many properties from the same period, the rooms are very spacious. The décor is unobtrusive and designed to help you relax. The moment we both looked at each other and instantly decided to buy this place was when we first gazed through the living room window at the boat-filled river, over to Conwy castle with the mountain range of Snowdonia set clearly in the distance. We felt privileged to have had such a view on our doorstep for so long.

Great location and wonerfull views of Conway

  • 4 of 5

Well presented comfortable apartment.Lots of charm and period features.

Warm and cosy and provided everything we needed for our short break.

We ate in the restaurant below the apartment (Paysanne) Brilliant food and great service.

If we had to be hyper critical, noise in the front bedroom from the road was loud.Twin back bedroom very quiet.

Would recommend apartment and restaurant to others.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location. Tremendous host. Lots of character. Good value.

Recommend to anyone who enjoys a view of the Conwy Estuary and the foothills of Snowdonia. Railway station across the street with frequent trains. Cai is an excellent host and runs a wonderful restaurant downstairs, Paysanne Bistro. Thanks Cai

Really great place to stay with marvellous views

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Cai when we arrived. He was very friendly and welcoming and helped us with our suitcases. We were so pleased with the apartment and it was ideal for us and our 14 and 11 year olds.

The stairs to the upstairs bedrooms were quite steep which is something to bear in mind if you have mobility issues. The apartment had a quaint old fashioned feel and was very homely.

We were lucky with the parking, as we didn't have to pay once, as we always managed to get a space on the road outside. The railway station car park is right opposite and costs £1.80 per day.

North Wales is a great holiday destination and we spent our time in beautiful Betws-y-Coed and at the beach at Colwyn Bay. We also went to Llandudno and went up the Great Orme. A must thing to do when staying here is to walk (approx 45mins) along the Conwy Estuary into Conwy. Conwy is a most historic town, what with the castle and the town walls.

Overall, I would thoroughly recommend staying here.
