Ask someone to list their top five most romantic destinations and it’s unlikely North Wales will feature. But, for lovers, North Wales has it all: sweeping coastline (can you hear the sirens calling?), brooding castles (throw your champion a favour), primeval forest (play Tarzan to her Jane) and dramatic mountains (because there ‘aint no mountain high enough’).
As February is the month for lovers we’ve selected three of our most idyllic and intimate properties. Perfect for a Valentine’s surprise break or a romantic getaway any time of the year, these little gems are unique but share one thing in common – they’ll definitely put you in the mood for love! Stay in or go out, it’s up to you…
Located in the foothills of the Snowdonia Mountain Range, this stunning period property will set the scene for a lovely romantic break. Set in a secluded spot near the Faenol Estate, close to the busy city of Bangor and the attractions of Anglesey, the cottage boasts beautifully appointed rooms and a private garden.
Snuggle up in front of the log burner or linger in the majestic master suite, this place is made for lovers! If you can bring yourself to leave the confines of the cottage there is a pub within walking distance, a perfect venue for a romantic meal for two.
Gamekeeper’s Cottage, hidden from prying eyes but close to the action, is a romantic bolt hole even Lady Chatterley would approve of.
Lovers, fancy a walk on the wildside? The Treehouse is one of our most endearing and quirky properties; it must be seen to be believed. Set in mature gardens overlooking the Conwy Estuary, it is a modern, loft-style apartment with views that are simply out of this world!
Of small but perfect proportions, the Treehouse has everything you need for comfortable stay – a well-equipped kitchen, stylish bathroom and chic living room… No, the most important room hasn’t been overlooked. Convert the settee into a double bed (extremely comfy, we are assured) and your living room becomes your bedroom! If you crave waking in a room with a view, this is the place to be.
Become the star in your own romantic story at Moss Bank House. This gorgeous Victorian property is reminiscent of some of the classic love stories – Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Emma – set in the dramatic surroundings of the medieval walled town of Conwy.
Conwy is a wonderful place to spend a romantic break; take a stroll along the castle walls at twilight, cosy up in one of the town’s many pubs, share an intimate meal for two, steal a kiss on the quay.
Each of the rooms at Moss Bank House have been lovingly appointed and are a delight to occupy. From the tastefully themed bedrooms to the sophisticated drawing room, all are furnished to an extremely high standard. Moss Bank House is the place to come if you’re planning to get the girl – or the guy.
We hope we’ve inspired you to elope with the one you love this Valentine’s Day! To browse more romantic getaways and our full range of beautiful properties or to book your stay at one of our romantic cottages click here.
