    Ref: OP7

    These adjoining stone-built properties sit in a prominent position in the tiny hamlet of Llangower on the south side of Llyn Tegid, the largest natural lake in Wales. With views towards the lake, the shoreline is only about 200 yards away, they provide an enchanting holiday location for those looking for a relaxing stay or ample opportunities for the more energetic. The Grade II Georgian listed Rector’s House (ref OP7) was home to the rector of the ancient chapel at Llangower which was built in the 13th-century but modernised at about the same time as the rectory was built. Retaining its character, the house catches the sun from all directions, with glimpses of the lake, valley and mountains. Rectory Cottage (ref IWA) has a romantic feel with its wood-burning stove and views. On the southern edge of Snowdonia National Park, this is an ideal place for walking, sailing or just lazing. The well-known market town of Bala is a short drive away (3 miles) where most facilities are available including several good pubs and restaurants, a supermarket, butcher, bakers, post office, chemist, curiosity and gift shops. The local leisure centre provides swimming and fitness facilities and there is a small ten-pin bowling alley nearby and single-screen cinema in the town. The coast at Barmouth is 40-minute drive, and the towns of Dolgellau and Portmadoc, both a 25-minute trip away, provide interest for all the family. Shop and pub 3 miles.

    This elegant, Georgian house has a light, homely feel about it and makes a comfortable retreat, whether for a main holiday or a relaxing short break. All the main rooms have two windows, affording glimpses of the lake at the front, the valley each side and mountains at the back. It is elegantly furnished with many valuable paintings and antiques. Much attention has been paid to the detail of the restoration of the house, so as to preserve the property’s features whilst providing the comforts of modern-day living. Approached over a flat, slightly inclined tarmac drive, the house is decorated and furnished to a good standard. The front and rear door are without steps.

    Ref: OTR

    The Towers is a substantial harbour master’s mansion (for a harbour that was never made), and was built by John Platt in 1872. On a grand scale of over 5000 square feet, in a Gothic chateau style, it has been refurbished to an excellent standard. Located yards from the beach, this detached property boasts flexible holiday accommodation including a fine cinema room with a beautiful hand painted domed ceiling, dining room with seating for 20 people, beach room, library and games room. There is also a large kitchen with breakfast room, ten bedrooms and living room. Of particular note is the superb Balinese bedroom with its ornate beamed and Hessian ceiling which like many rooms, including the fantastic lantern tower, benefits from magnificent views across to the Isle of Anglesey and Puffin Island. The lawned garden has an attractive ornamental pond with a Japanese three-tier fountain surrounded by a 9-hole putting green. The driveway extends to the rear of the property where there is a further garden area and small orchard and parking for 10 vehicles.
    The walled town of Conwy lies close by between Llandudno and Bangor, and with the West Coast train line passing through both towns, London is only 3 hours away. Conwy is home to an elegant 13th-century castle built by Edward I, as well as other buildings of note - such as the 14th-century timber and stone Aberconwy House (NT), the splendid Plas Mawr and what is reputed to be the smallest house in Britain. For art lovers, there is the Royal Cambrian Academy (where displays of Welsh artists’ work are shown during the annual summer exhibition). As well as being the major shopping town for the area, Llandudno is also home to Venue Cymru theatre which has a range of touring productions. The town also has two beaches and the famous views from the top of the Great Orme (679ft), jutting out into the Irish Sea, which can be explored by tramway, cable car or on foot. In the other direction is Ynys Môn (the Isle of Anglesey) with its 125 miles of coastline of fantastic beaches and rocky coves. For walkers, there are plenty of routes to explore - including The Cambrian Way which begins in Conwy, and winds its 274 miles to Cardiff, passing through some of Wales’ most wonderful upland scenery, and taking in the Carneddau, the Glyders, the Snowdon Massif, Cadair Idris and the Brecon Beacons. Bodnant Garden is a further attraction in the area for visitors, providing displays of rhododendrons and laburnum in May/June and other colour throughout the year. Horse riding nearby. Ideal for golf. Station 100 yards. Shops and pub ½ mile.
