Hot Tub Walk to Village Parking Space

This lovingly renovated property sparkles amongst the dramatic backdrop of the Snowdon Mountains and stunning view of Borth Wen Bay. With space for up to twelve guests, and a larger sister property available to book too, large family groups can come together to celebrate and enjoy the tasteful décor, hot tub, private tennis court and coastal walks on offer.

The first floor holds the main living space enabling guests to enjoy the impressive views at their best. A large outdoor terrace with seating and BBQ connects through floor to ceiling windows to the open-plan living space. The well-equipped kitchen with twelve-seater dining area benefits from a huge floor to ceiling window that allows you to enjoy your meals without missing out on the glorious outdoors. Everything you need to host a party is provided with a large breakfast bar island, perfect for catching up over a coffee and croissant, also included is a Rangemaster oven, Insinkerator, two dishwashers, two washing machines, a dryer and a wine fridge, what more could you need?  

A spacious living room opens up to the terrace and holds a large wood-burner and squishy sofas for days when the weather is choosing to be difficult, whilst younger members of the group will flock to the Games Room to make the most of the games consoles, DVD library and Satellite TV!

Sleeping accommodation is spread across the ground floor and first floor, allowing easy access options for those who need it. Two super-king bedrooms complete with en-suite and patio doors allow you to step out and enjoy the crisp morning air coming off the bay each day. Also on the ground floor is a twin bedroom with en-suite and a fantastic nautical themed bunk room that will delight the youngest members of your family, particular as it includes a Nintendo library, TV and chill out sofa! The remaining two large double bedrooms can be found on the first floor and share a family bathroom with shower and excellent sunken bath for luxurious soaks in the bubbles. Zip and link beds mean that most rooms can be adapted for your party, plus cosy under floor heating in all bathrooms mean the emphasis can remain firmly on the comfort and happiness of guests.

The exceptional outdoor area has something for everyone be it a large family BBQ on the terrace, an indulgent soak in the hot tub or just some chill out time in the modern hanging chairs. Shared with the neighbouring property a private tennis court is at the guest’s disposal, plus goals for football and a table tennis table, keeping the more competitive amongst you entertained and occupied!

With the beach just a ten-minute walk away, access to sand and sea is easy with lovely coastal walks easily accessed from your front door. There is much to see and do in one of the most visually striking parts of Wales, if you can tear yourself away from the excellent amenities on offer at Osprey House.

Location

About the surrounding area of Bara House
Walk to Village Walk to Restaurant <1hr to Airport Rural Location Walking/Hiking Paths
Loading map

Set in its own delightful grounds Bara House benefits from breath-taking vistas at every angle. Watch the sunrise over nearby Borth Wen Bay, within easy walking distance, ideal for enjoying a lovely coastal walk or getting stuck in with a bucket and spade. Backed by sand dunes this is a lovely safe beach where children can paddle or stretch their legs with the circular walk along Rhoscolyn beach towards the headland.  

If you are looking for a night off from cooking, then we recommend a trip to the excellent local pub, The White Eagle. A real hidden gem, this pub is often referred to as the best on the island, with an elevated outdoor terrace, mouth-watering roasts and a selection of ales, all complimented by a stunning view, just two minutes from your door.

For a day trip out why not visit the only working windmill in Wales at Llynon Mill?  Built in 1775 the mill still produces wholemeal flour, whilst two neighbouring roundhouses provide a unique insight into the farming practise and lifestyle of the Iron Age. There is also a wonderful on-site café to grab some lunch or a slice of cake during your visit.

If you want to get out on the waves, we recommend a visit to Beaumaris Pier to grab a boat trip to Puffin Island. Skippers will steer you past the seal colony and seal cave at Penmon Point lighthouse, whilst the Island itself has a plethora of birdlife from cormorants, guillemots and of course puffins! If you are lucky you may even spot bottlenose dolphins or harbour porpoises swimming by.

A trip into the Snowdonia national park is a must during your stay. Whether you are looking to climb the highest peaks or just take in the natural beauty of the National Park there is something for everyone. We recommend the Llyn Cwellyn Boardwalk trail, an easy access lakeside walk that meanders between two soaring mountain peaks.  If hiking isn’t your thing then why not hop on board the seasonal Snowdon Railway, surely one of the most picturesque train rides in the world, with stunning scenery and awe-inspiring views you can ride the rail right to the summit without any exertion needed!

Luxury self-catering holiday accommodation in North Wales

Nestled in the bear hug of the United Kingdom, North Wales is rich in history, wrapped in natural beauty and adorned with cultural bling. This land of stunning landscapes beckons you, intrepid traveller, to unravel its treasures. Please take a look at our jaw-dropping properties that will make your holiday a wonderful adventure.

North Wales’ showstopper, the Snowdonia National Park, is a playground for nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts. Mount Snowdon, the VIP of the scene, towers above, overseeing the fun. Scenic trails, waterfalls that put your shower to shame and lakes are scattered across this magnificent landscape.

If history is your jam, Conwy Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a medieval masterpiece that flaunts military architecture. The town of Conwy is a living history book with cobbled streets and ancient buildings. One amazing landmark, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, is a 19th-century engineering marvel. Imagine a soaring aqueduct, the Dee Valley below, and views that make you question if you accidentally stepped into a postcard.

The charming village of Portmeirion is a colour explosion. Designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, this place enjoys vibrant buildings, lush gardens and seaside vibes. It is like a Welsh-Italian love affair that birthed a unique destination. Bangor is not just a university town. It is where Penrhyn Castle stands tall, a neo-Norman masterpiece surrounded by gardens that put Versailles to shame. The majestic Snowdonia mountains are the backdrop, adding drama.

North Wales is a theme park for thrill-seekers. Hiking, mountain biking, water sports, it is a playground of outdoor delights. Zip World Velocity in Bethesda takes the cake with the fastest zip line globally, making you feel like Superman over dramatic landscapes.

The coastline comes up trumps too. Llandudno boasts Victorian elegance, a historic pier and a Great Orme headland with cable cars and tramways making you feel as though you have stepped into a period drama. Aberystwyth brings the seaside charm while the nearby charmer, Betws-y-Coed is the tranquil village nestled in lush woodlands, inviting you to escape the chaos.

North Wales, with its blend of natural wonders, historic landmarks and adventure galore, is a love affair waiting to happen. Pack your bags, because each step in this magical land unfolds a new chapter in a story that has been brewing for centuries.

While the image of lush valleys and a laid-back lifestyle are right at the heart of a holiday in Wales, don’t think stunning landscapes and a bit of relaxation are the only thing on offer in this beautiful country. Don’t believe us?

Bara House is perfect for a family gathering, with activities and amenities aplenty to create a memorable trip.  Endless outdoor opportunities await from staging your own tennis tournament on the court to splashing in the hot tub or ping ponging at the table tennis table.  Indoors there are two living areas, allowing the gamesroom to be commandeered by the younger members of your group.  With WiFi, Sonos Sound System, Nintendo and TV with Apple TV and Sky there will be plenty of opportunities to wind down whilst the adults socialise.  

Watch your children fall in love with the outdoors with the coast right on your doorstep.  Whilst Borth Wen Bay provides a safe place to paddle and build sandcastles, older children will enjoy a chance to get out on the water.  B-active at Rhoscolyn has an outdoor pursuits base where activities can be tailored to your group.  Take kayaks out on the water or even try your hand at some adrenalin pumping coasteering around the craggy coast of Anglesey.

In the summer months Breakwater Country Park, an impressive former quarry, hosts a Model Boat Club on the pond which is popular with children.  There is also the Maritime Museum on Newry Beach with the oldest lifeboat house in Wales.  It has a handy bar and bistro for grabbing lunch on the go during your visit.

Further afield, the Anglesey Sea Zoo is a great place to visit with young kids, with over 40 tanks holding marine life found in British waters from seahorses to jellyfish and all in between.  The charming Anglesey Model Village and Garden has a wonderful display of Anglesey landmarks and a working miniature railway that runs throughout, children can play in the self-drive railway engine or enjoy a picnic, a great way to spend the day.
