Tan Y Graig will take your breath away in lots of positive ways. Gorgeously renovated and enlarged accommodation with a perfect blend of old and new. You’ll love it!

What a beautiful, remarkable location tucked away in a secluded elevated position amidst the gentle rolling countryside to the south of Colwyn Bay and the rural village of Betws Yn Rhos – Tan Y Graig offers the simple pleasures and peacefulness that only rural life can offer and standing in some 4.6 Acres whilst bordering woodland makes it all the more special.

Tan Y Graig deserves a little explanation, because it’s come a long, long way since it was purchased by the present owners back in 2020. Thought to be a herdsman’s cottage dating from sometime during the 19th century, the property has subsequently been through some major changes, and in a good way too! Stripped to its bare walls and re-roofed, Tan Y Graig has been comprehensively restored and enlarged to what you see before you today. With no expense spared and with a definite eye on the detail, finish and presentation, this is now a most impressive home with comfort galore but without sacrificing its heritage and undoubted charm and character. In fact, you could argue the improvements have enhanced the character whilst providing all that’s required for modern living.

The interior is a joy to behold with exposed feature stone walls, beamed ceilings and two principal symmetrical rooms offering back-to-back fireplaces, both of which come fitted with wood burning stoves whilst the dual aspect kitchen comes fitted with quality fitted units topped off with solid quartz/granite worktops, dual Belfast sink and range oven plus neat touches of a window seat, exposed lintels and engineered oak flooring. From the sitting room, an opening to the original outer wall welcomes you to the newer addition, a superb lounge with pitched ceiling, patio doors and touches that are carried through from the older section.

All the windows (double glazed) and doors are bespoke handmade units, there are attractive column style radiators fitted throughout most of the accommodation and on a practical level, there’s a dedicated utility room for all your general washing duties and contemporary bathroom facilities on both floors.

In addition to the two wood burning stoves is a dedicated oil fired central heating system.

In addition to the two wood burning stoves is a dedicated oil fired central heating system.
The two bedrooms on the first floor both have their own unique appeal with feature stone walls and timber panelling, original exposed floorboards and an en-suite that suits the property down to the ground with luxurious touches. Gardens wrap around the property with a manicured lawned garden to the front, providing the perfect perch from where you can sit back and enjoy the location to the full.

The driveway extends to the rear where there’s ample parking and access to a generous garage/workshop and various outbuildings and wood stores. Of course, there’s scope here for the addition of a more substantial outbuilding or summerhouse if so desired (subject to the usual planning consents).

The land that comes with Tan Y Graig extends for some distance either side and to the rear of the property, sloping upwards towards woodland to which it borders, offering a pleasant environment for the enjoyment of natural wildlife and birdlife in equal measure. Of course, depending on your outlook and requirements, portions of the land could be terraced, thereby creating a suitable environment for growing vegetables, rearing chickens/ducks and generally being more self-sufficient.

The village of Betws Yn Rhos lies approximately 2 miles distant and offers amenities of a convenience store, primary school and traditional Inn, the coastal town of Colwyn Bay 6 miles (useful for the A55) and Abergele approximately 6½ miles distant, ensuring all your daily requirements are well catered for. Colwyn Bay has a mainline railway station with direct links to London and Holyhead and numerous recreational facilities which include the famous Welsh Mountain Zoo, theatre and Eirias Park Venue whilst Llandudno has its famous Victorian pier, theatre and music/arts venue and dry ski slope to mention just a few

From our Colwyn Bay office, follow the A547 east (Abergele Road) through the centre of Colwyn Bay passing by the entrance to Eirias Park on your left and on reaching the next roundabout, take the third exit onto the B5383 Llaneilian Road signposted Betws Yn Rhos. Follow this route for approximately 3 miles turning left at the ‘T’ junction, onto the B5381 and then take the next turning on your right signposted Trofarth/Dawn. Proceeding past the first turning on your left, take the next left turning onto a narrow lane and follow this for approximately ½ mile where you’ll see a large white house called Ty Dwr. Take the track to its right through a gate and onwards past a stone wall and where the track splits, take the right turning which leads directly to the property.
