Farsite has everything you could wish for in a Llandudno holiday rental. The detached holiday cottage is mere metres from the historic Victorian promenade and the sandy beach at West Shore, with stunning views over the water towards Puffin Island and Anglesey. With its plentiful shops and amenities, the busier North Shore area is no more than a flat, 10-minute stroll, making the location of the cottage both peaceful and convenient. There is plenty of space for six people to sleep in three bedrooms with an ideal layout for relaxed family holidays by the seaside.
Llandudno has been a favourite holiday destination since the Victorians fell in love with its beautiful beaches and fantastic views. The only thing between you and the Blue Flag West Shore beach is a picturesque seafront promenade. Stroll to the beach side cafe for a lazy brunch or the pub for a pint or two in the waterfront beer garden. There is also a small supermarket and a popular fish and chip shop nearby, so you can pop out for anything you need. If you are feeling energetic you can hike to the top of The Great Orme and reward your efforts with amazing views and a tasty cream tea. Alternatively, climb aboard the heritage Victorian land train or the cable car and save your legs for the walk down.
Walking and cycling are both excellent ways to explore Llandudno and the surrounding area. Find your bearings following the Llandudno Town Trail and admire the views from the Wales Coast Path. The extensive network of footpaths also stretches along the Conwy valley where you will find beautiful forest and riverside walks. The trails at Gwydyr Forest Park are also ideal for mountain biking. The cottage has secure bike storage, but you can hire bikes in Llandudno if you don't bring yours with you. Climbing, fishing, golf and sailing are all other fun activities widely available.
Local attractions include Conwy Castle, Bodnant Garden, the Welsh Mountain Zoo, and Swallow Falls. Cross the Menai Strait to Anglesey, or drive to Llanberis to reach the top of Snowdon on foot or the Victorian train. You only have to look out of the window to feel inspired when you stay at Farsite. It's the sort of place you can use as a base to explore far and wide, or where you can forget about the car for a week and still have days full of fun without having to go anywhere that's not within reach on foot or by bicycle.

Built as a family home, Farsite has accommodation over two levels and a garden at the front. The owners have decorated with soft shades of blue and grey that harmonise with the coastal setting. Whilst there is a ground floor bedroom and shower room, unfortuantely Farsite is not suitable for wheelchair and mobility scooter users as the entrance is too narrow.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. Guests to bring beach towels if they are required. The cottage is suitable for children over five. The owner regrets they cannot accommodate pets. Smoking is not permitted.
