About the property

House in Colwyn Bay Nr. Conwy, North Wales - Perfect Spot For Discovering The Delights Of North Wales With Plenty Of Extras To Keep Family Entertained

Nestled within large grounds, Cedar Lodge provides a private peaceful country retreat, but is ideally located just 2 miles from the A55 making it an ideal base for exploring north Wales. In a delightful elevated setting, the property is designed to take full advantage of uninterrupted views over open countryside to the Carneddau mountain range (part of Snowdonia), stretching out to the coast with Puffin island and the Isle of Anglesey taking centre stage, reaching as far as The Great Orme and Little Orme in Llandudno.

About Graham Jones

The story of Cedar Lodge begins 21 years ago. With three small children all under the age of three, we set out to look for the perfect family home. Unable to find what we were looking for, we decided to design and build what we wanted instead. Everyone said we were mad when we bought a run down house and applied for permission to demolish it, but 2.5 years later we were considered visionary by our friends when they saw our lovely new home! We have many happy memories here bringing up our three children and all the pets, but work enticed us to pastures new and with the children at University we thought it was time for some new adventures. It is with sadness that we have left our beloved home, but we hope that you will enjoy your time here as we have done for all these years!

Graham Jones purchased this house in 1994

Why Graham Jones chose Conwy

Why did we buy it? Location, location, location! Fabulous views, privacy, peace, quiet, and convenience...

Cedar Lodge overlooks private woodland to one side, and the main elevation has breathtaking views stretching over open countryside towards the sea with distant views of the Isle of Angelsey and Puffin Island.

Being in a semi-rural location we enjoy the benefits of the countryside, with miles of footpaths and trails directly from the doorstep, but we enjoy the convenience of being able to walk to a local pub/restaurant, shop and takeaway.

Although we wanted to be in the countryside, we were also attracted to the property because it is conveniently located less than 2 miles away from the main A55 highway that runs through north Wales. This makes it a great base for exploring the area, as well as providing easy access to Chester, Liverpool and Manchester. It always surprises people, that we can also be in London in just under 3 hours thanks to Virgin trains or Dublin in Ireland, thanks to the Holyhead ferry, which is just 40 minutes drive away or around half an hour to the terminal by train.

What makes this house unique

What is unique about the property is that there is space for everyone to retreat and have some quiet time alone, but also large spaces to spend time together, but it still feels homely and cosy. Despite its size, the property has a warm, welcoming feel with dimmed lighting, log burner, wood pellet stove, large comfy sofas and dining areas inside and out large enough for groups of up to 12.

Our three children grew up here, so the house is very well equipped with games consoles, table tennis, books, magazines, toys, a pool table, as well as a very private swimming pool and large gardens. There is plenty of room to run around and play games on the lawns.

More than anything we love to sit outside, to enjoy the fabulous views and sounds of the countryside. Even after 21 years we are still enticed and we are sure you will too!

POLITE NOTICE: We cannot accept groups larger than 12, and this number includes visitors, due to the disruption this causes to neighbours who share the private road providing access to the property.

Great family home

  • 4 of 5

Overall the property was great for our party of 12. The bedrooms were all of a good size, with the master bedroom have a huge bathroom. The kitchen & the dining room were just the job for cooking & eating for the whole group. The lounge could have done with a little more seating,when we were all watching the TV. The playroom was just the job for all the kids (5yrs old to 17 yrs old). I am glad we paid for the pool heating, and took the owners advice to put the cover on a night. The were a few little niggles such as :

The gutting on the conservatory was in need of repair, the brickwork on the steps going to the pool was showing a large crack, and some of the kitchen utensils were quite worn. However overall it is a great house in a fantastic location.

Amazing holiday home in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cedar Lodge with a group of friends for a birthday weekend. Located in a stunning part of Wales with easy access to all facilities and many attractions this property is ideal for those looking for a luxurious base from which to explore the area.

First impressions of the property were fantastic! A birthday card with a bottle of champagne and box of chocolates was waiting for is from the owners. Cedar lodge is laid out over 3 floors. Ground floor is home to lovely welcoming kitchen, large dining room, sitting room, utility room, toilet and conservatory which leads out to large decking area over huge garden and outdoor pool and jacuzzi! The lower floor is home to the family room with massive wall mounted tv, games console, DVD player, pool table and many other games to keep everyone busy; there is also a huge bedroom which sleeps four and a toilet on this floor. The upper floor is home to three double bedrooms and a large family bathroom complete with double shower and large bath; the master suite is on this floor also and will take your breath away! The bedroom is gorgeous and cosy but when you walk into the bathroom you feel like you've entered another world!

The property has underfloor heating, and is fully centrally heated. All rooms enjoy glorious views out over the garden and countryside beyond.

A large binder provides local recommendations for food etc, during our time we enjoyed an amazing Indian takeaway and dined one evening at the highly commended local bar/restaurant.

The owners are very lucky to own such a beautiful house; and if I win the lottery I may see if they will sell it to me!! Until then we shall settle for another visit sometime soon.
