centre accessed via a stone bridge crossing the
River Conwy which flows past the house on the
opposite side of the lane.

Betws-y-Coed is a popular tourist centre with a
busy and thriving all year round community. The
village offers a comprehensive range of services
catering for everyday needs with numerous pubs,
hotels, restaurants and shops together with
doctor’s surgery. On the educational front
schooling is well provided for with a choice of
state primary and secondary
schools nearby complimented by independent
schools including Rydal Penrhos at Colwyn Bay
and St David’s College at Llandudno.
The area is a particularly sought after tourist
destination especially with walkers, climbers and
mountain bikers owing to the attractive terrain.
Indeed the Snowdonia National Park offers a wide
range of sporting and leisure facilities with
mountain biking at the Hireathog Moors, the
Clocaenog Forest and around the various
mountain lakes locally, white water rafting, “High
Ropes” and canoeing at Betws-y-Coed, superb

There is also the recently opened Surf Snowdonia
at Dolgarrog, a fantastic new man made Surf
Centre and Zip World at Llanberis, the largest Zip
Zone in Europe. Further north, the coastline offers
miles of sandy beaches and the Irish Sea provides
excellent sailing and boating opportunities with
marinas at Deganwy and Conwy.

Hafan is conveniently situated being only 14
miles from the A55 Expressway providing fast
access along the North Wales coast to Chester
and linking with the national motorway network
for all the major areas of commerce throughout
the North West. Llandudno Junction provides a
regular direct 3 hour train service to London
Euston. For international travel Liverpool and
Manchester airports are 79 and 88 miles
respectively and there are also private airfields at
Hawarden and Caernarfon.

Hafan dates from the early 20th Century bearing
the date 1907 and is constructed of local stone
with Mock Tudor elevations under a slate roof. It
has been in the same ownership for just over 25
years and during which time the property has
been regularly updated and the footprint further
extended to provide spacious family
accommodation yet retaining much of the original
charm and character.

The front door leads to an entrance hall from
which access is gained to the principal reception
rooms with high ceilings which is a characteristic
throughout the property. The Drawing Room has
been remodelled incorporating a smaller reception
room beyond to create a Reading Room and both
rooms have the benefit of independent wood
burning stoves as a focal point. The Drawing
Room enjoys a seating area in the bay window as
well as a dual aspect out to the gardens providing
a light and airy room. On the opposite side on
the Entrance Hall is the Dining Room with
window seats enjoying views out to the front and
is complimented by a coal effect gas fire with oak
mantle and tiled hearth. Further along the hallway
is the Study which has a pleasant aspect out to
the side garden and is fitted with bookcases
surrounding a further gas fire. At the far end of
the Entrance Hall is the door to an extremely
well-appointed Kitchen and Dining Area which
provides access through to the Conservatory as
well as the Boot Room and also direct access to
the rear of the property and parking area. The
Kitchen itself has been completely modernised in
2005 to include bespoke hand painted Mark
Wilkinson wall and base units, a Falcon
rangemaster oven, solid granite work tops, Belfast
sink and drainer, Miele dishwasher and built-in
microwave combination oven. The Boot Room
also benefits from bespoke cupboards and has a
quarry tiled floor together with down lighters and
a new secure insulated door. This room provides
direct access to the rear parking area as well as the
downstairs Shower Room and Laundry where the
Worcester boiler is housed.

The Conservatory is the most recent addition to
the property and has double doors to both the
Kitchen as well as to the gardens. This room
provides a comfortable seating area benefitting
from the natural light thanks both to its south
facing aspect and clear glass ceiling. This room
also benefits from double glazed windows
throughout as well as a bespoke fitted dresser and
Imperial slate floor.

At first floor level the Landing gives access to all
bedrooms as well as the family bathroom albeit
on a split level landing. The Master Bedroom is
accessed independently from the higher level of
the landing as well as via a Dressing Room with
fully fitted floor to ceiling hand painted
wardrobes. The Bedroom itself enjoys a dual
aspect over the gardens and benefits from an
en-suite Shower Room complete with Clive
Christian hand painted bathroom cabinets,
Aqualisa shower controls, white marble top sink
and heated towel rail. Bedroom 2 also enjoys a
south facing aspect and retains its charm with an
original slate feature fireplace and Bedroom 3 too
has a Victorian fireplace as well as Clive Christian
built in wardrobes. On the lower landing is
Bedroom 4 as well as the family bathroom by
Clive Christian which includes fitted double sink
with Italian white marble top units, white enamel
bath with mixer taps, large walk-in shower with

with an array of specimen trees and shrubs and
enjoys a southerly aspect with sun throughout the
day. The property is approached via a
tarmacadam driveway which leads down to a
parking and turning area with a detached double

dash elevations under a slate roof and benefits
from electric up and over double doors. The
parking area then gives direct access to the back
door of the property and the Boot Room door as
well as a lovely Cotswold stone path and patio
area which surrounds the property.

To the eastern and western front the garden is laid
to lawn with a tiered garden and path to the front
of the house which enjoys a southerly aspect and
is full of herbaceous borders and a natural stream
leading down to a collecting pool and then
eventually leading to the River Conwy itself. The
lower garden has been carved out of natural stone
and provides a lit pathway down to a pedestrian
gate onto the road below
