Description

Hen Ysgol is a Grade II listed former school house, built in 1816, and renovated to a superb standard by the present owners.  This historic property is right in the heart of Beaumaris, just a stroll away from the shops and coast, moated castle and historic Gaol. There are breathtaking views from the town across the Menai Straits to the stunning mountains of Snowdonia, and some of the best beaches of Anglesey are just a short drive away.

The Cottage: is beautifully looked after by the owners and has a large sunny rear garden and sun room where you can enjoy sunbathing or barbecuing within this private enclosed area. The semi-detached house is all on one level but with stone steps up from the road.

Lounge: quality furnishings including comfortable leather sofas, a Smart TV/DVD and WiFi, a modern real flame gas fire, an impressive antique Welsh dresser decorated with beautiful, contemporary Portmeirion pottery and prints by a local artist on the walls.

Kitchen Diner: has smart cream fitted units and is well equipped with built in appliances including an electric oven and microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer, as well as a dining table and chairs. A door leads to the sun room and rear garden.

Leading from the entrance hallway is a cloakroom with WC and basin.

There are two bedrooms, both stylishly furnished and with good quality beds with Hypnos mattresses.

Bedroom 1: is light and airy, with a king size bed and built in wardrobes and storage. Views across to the pretty church.

Bedroom 2: has twin beds and a wall mounted flat screen TV. Views out over the rear courtyard garden.

Bathroom: a spacious, modern room with bath, large shower cubicle, WC and basin.

Outside: there is a small lawned area to the front. To the rear is a large courtyard garden leading from a small, contemporary sun room which has large indoor/outdoor bean bags for relaxing on. This area is partly paved and has garden furniture and a barbecue, a great enclosed spot to lounge and enjoy the sun. Bike storage is available. There is space for off-loading just on the street outside the property, then parking at the local car park nearby. (A one-week vistors' pass can be purchased; contact us for details.)

Beaumaris is a very popular little town in a stunning position. There is a lot to explore here; as well as the historic attractions, there are many good independent shops, cafes and quality restaurants and pubs. If you can tear yourself away, just down the road is Penmon Priory and Dovecote with a little toll road leading to Penmon Point, right opposite Puffin Island and its picturesque lighthouse. The nearby historic Plas Cadnant Gardens are stunning. Boat trips and rib rides can be taken to explore the coastline and its wildlife. Further again in either direction along the coast are popular sandy beaches such as Red Wharf Bay and Newborough Warren. The Snowdonia National Park is around 15 miles away for stunning scenery, mountain walking, biking and other adventure activities.

Location

7 Things to do around Beaumaris

This area is an incredibly beautiful and popular part of Anglesey, below are just 7 things close by that you could do in a weeks holiday.

1-Top of the list has to be a visit to the stunning Beaumaris Castle, built as part of Edward I's campaign to conquer the north of Wales! Great for all the family especially combined with a visit to the Victorian Gaol museum.

2 - It’s worth taking plenty of time to stroll through the town. There are lots of independent shops, art galleries, a lovely jewellery shop, a superb bakery (Central Bakery), good cafes and the famous Red Boat Ice cream parlour. For dining out try the Pier House Bistro or The Bull.

3 - Take a stroll along the sea front with its pretty pastel houses and really stunning views across the sea to the mountains of Snowdonia, a much photographed view and you will see why.

4 – Take a cruise down the Menai Straits or over to puffin island to spot the birds or seals. Or take a fishing trip. The boats leave from Beaumaris sea front.

5 – Beaumaris holds many events throughout the year. At the end of May is the Beaumaris arts festival, at the beginning of September is the popular food festival. Bonfire night is a big affair here and there is a Victorian Christmas festival at the end of November.

6 – A short scenic drive down the coast is the ancient Penmon Priory, church and Dovecote, all in a beautiful position, then stroll or drive down to Penmon Point for spectacular views to the lighthouse and over to Puffin Island.

 7- Summer or winter, a visit to Beaumaris wouldn’t be complete without going to some of Anglesey’s beaches. The golden sands and popular summer resorts of Benllech, Moelfre and Lligwy are a short drive away and in the other direction, and perfect for winter walks, is Newborough with its little island and walking and biking forest trails.
