The business is located in the semi-rural village of Llanddona on the Isle of Anglesey. The inn lies at the top of the Llanddona Beach road, approximately a mile from the beach. The district surrounding the inn is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and there are many enjoyable walks close by, while the area has numerous bridle paths.
Located between Benllech and Beaumaris, in an area with panoramic views over to the Great Orme, the mountains of Snowdonia, the Llyn Peninsula and the beaches of Red Wharf Bay, Llanddona is famous for its ‘blue flag’ beach. The beach is popular with families and activities here include windsurfing, kite-surfing and sea-fishing. The village is also most famous for its tales of witchcraft, and 'the witches of Llanddona' are well-known. Historically, these ship-wrecked foreigners settled on common land along the sea shore, and were feared among the local community.
The nearby historic town of Beaumaris has a good selection of shops and is home to the largest castle to be built by King Edward I. Plans are under review for the approval of a marina. Also close-by is the village of Benllech, which is one of the most visited places on the island.
The Isle of Anglesey is an island and county off the northwest coast of Wales. It is connected to the mainland by two bridges spanning the Menai Strait: the Menai Suspension Bridge (carrying the A5), designed by Thomas Telford in 1826; and the more recently constructed Britannia Bridge which carries the A55 and the North Wales Coast Railway Line. Tourism is now the most significant economic activity on the island. The island is also on one of the major routes from Britain to Ireland, via ferries from Holyhead.
This traditional inn has been an inn for 26 years. It was previously 3 separate houses including one which was the village shop. It is full of character ‘oozing’ olde worlde charm with beams prevalent throughout.
The Lounge Bar has a warm and relaxing atmosphere with a large stone feature fireplace, carpets, fixed upholstered perimeter seating, games machine, wood tables and chairs.
The Dining Area (circa 40 covers) has a warm and inviting ambience with exposed ceiling beams, carpet, light wood tables and chairs.
Both areas have access to the Bar Area which features a stone wooden central Bar Servery with additional seating for circa 12.
The Games Room features a pool table, loose chairs, tables and a dart’s throw.
Catering/storage facilities include a commercial kitchen (appliances not tested); walk-in larder; store room; and ground floor cellar.
The substantial owner’s accommodation briefly comprises: large lounge with views of Snowdon,
6 double bedrooms, office/bedroom, shower room; family bathroom and kitchen with adjoining dining room. Part of the accommodation could potentially be converted to letting accommodation subject to the necessary consents.
To the rear of the building is a covered smoking area. There is a patio drinking area with picnic benches for circa 30, car park and a garden with greenhouse.
There is also a double garage and static caravan.
