Overview

Property

Updated: 23-Nov-2016
Spacious, family friendly house within Conwy town walls, stunning beaches and mountains nearby

Castle Reach is situated in an enviable location, right next to Conwy Castle and only a two minute walk to the picturesque quayside and harbour. The 200 year old building is full of character and charm and the fantastic sea and castle views make it a perfect holiday house at any time of the year. The large rooms give Castle Reach a spacious and airy feel. The kids will love the dedicated play area in the attic and the private courtyard is the perfect spot for al-fresco dining. All the amenities of Conwy are on the doorstep, with pubs, cosy restaurants and cafes, artisan shops and art galleries all just a very short walk away. Nearby you will find fantastic unspoilt beaches, great walking and biking in the Snowdonia National Park and several golf courses and National Trust properties. Free WiFi and gas central heating.

About the Owner

My husband and I and our three children live a ten minute drive from Conwy. Whether you love the seaside or the mountains, castles or cafes, adrenaline adventures or simply relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery, there is something for everyone to do on holiday here. The laid back environment, proximity to the stunning coast and mountains and the huge amount of fun, family friendly activities on offer is why we love living here so much.

The property was so great. Clean throughout, well supplied even had milk in fridge and welcome chocolates. The grandsons thought the play attic was phenomenal. Will definitely love to stay again and would highly recommend Castle Reach to anyone, already have.

A fabulous stay in a family friendly house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Castle Reach and can highly recommend it. The location was excellent -walkable to all of Conwy's main attractions in just a few minutes, and with views of the castle towers and the harbour. Although I was initially concerned that it was opposite a pub and on a road, we weren't bothered at all by noise. The house was really big inside, with large bedrooms and a fabulous attic room with lots of games/books etc for kids to enjoy (our two, 4 and 2, certainly loved it up there!). The quality of towels, sheets etc were excellent (I wish I could get my towels at home to be so soft!) and the kitchen was well supplied too. It was great to have a visitors book full of suggestions of things other guests had enjoyed in the area.

Although there is no parking at the house, it wasn't too much trouble to park for free just a few minutes walk away, and since all of Conwy is right on your doorstep and the train station is only a couple of minutes walk away you may not even need your car once you are there.

Some of the stairs are quite steep so perhaps not for the infirm, although our 2 year old managed them happily.

Location

From the Owner

The large rooms make Castle Reach feel very spacious and airy. Children have their own dedicated play area (which includes table tennis, a mini pool table, table football, a TV and other games and books) which is separate from the main lounge. The private courtyard at the back is a lovely sun trap in the summer.

A ten minute drive away are the beaches at Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan. Both beaches have cafes, swings and kids paddling pools. Anglesey, half an hours drive away, has 125 miles of beautiful coastline making it the perfect place for a range of water based activities, or simply relaxing on one of the beautiful sandy beaches and taking in the scenery.

Travel:

Further Details:

Conwy Castle is without doubt one of the most impressive Welsh castles. There are two fortified gateways and eight massive towers. Most of the towers can be climbed giving a fantastic view of the sea and mountains. For free you can walk on the high castle walls which can be accessed at several different points in Conwy.

Conwy quayside is the perfect place for a gentle stroll, taking the kids crabbing or eating an ice cream whilst admiring the view. Alternatively you can buy some of the world famous Conwy mussels or visit the smallest house in Britain. Boat trips that run up and down the Conwy estuary can also be caught here. The Liverpool Arms, situated on the quayside, is a perfect place to quench your thirst.

Conwy Morfa, the closed beach, is less than five minutes drive away. The large sandy bay makes it a great spot for sandcastles and paddling. It is also has a marina, is good for fishing and is next to a golf course. There are numerous other beaches nearby.

One of the most popular activities for people visiting Conwy is walking. Just behind Conwy is the Sychnant Pass, one of Conwy's best kept secrets. It is the most northern part of the Snowdonia National Park and has many stunning walks, including part of the North Wales Path, which winds for 60 miles between Bangor and Prestatyn along the coast. There are also some fantastic walks up mountains, in forests or along beaches. The area is also popular with mountain bikers.
