King’s House is a superb historic residence originally built around the 1740s. The property is a beautiful surprise, waiting behind an unassuming doorway, situated in a row of properties close to the historic castle, gaol and courthouse in the historic town of Beaumaris.
This fine house has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme to restore original features which has resulted in an overall mood of stylish relaxation. There is a range of elegant antique furniture, combined with the modern comfort of big squashy sofas, good comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. The quality of accommodation is superb and offers real luxury. The property is deceptively large having six well proportioned bedrooms and generous reception space. The owner has presented this house so well that you will want for nothing, so just sit back and relax.

The surrounding area
On Anglesey, there’s something for everyone, whether you’re planning a family day out with the kids or a relaxing afternoon on one of our lovely sandy beaches, we hope you like some of the suggestions below:
Local Area information
Beaumaris revolves around its technically advanced castle which was begun in 1295 by order of Edward I. The castle was built on new ground at the ‘fair marsh’ (or ‘beau marais’ in Norman-French) which gave the town its name.
The lovely historic town of Beaumaris has lots to offer. Janet Bell’s Gallery of happy, seaside artwork, a pebble’s throw from the beach and castle, is well worth a visit. The Loft Restaurant, an elegant and tranquil eating house occupying the eaves above the oldest part of The Bull Inn is a stylish setting for fine dining. Overlooking the Menai Strait and the Snowdonia mountain range, sitting outdoors and enjoying the view, the Pier House Café and Bistro is a great place to meet and eat. Beaumaris has many other good places to eat, interesting attractions and a fine selection of individual shops.
There are plenty of attractions in the area including two golf courses, dinghy sailing, fishing trips and boat cruises to Puffin Island, boat cruises down the Menai Strait - not to mention the beautiful coastline with its wonderful sandy beaches such as Llanddona, Red Wharf Bay and Benllech. The Anglesey Coastal Path will take you to the historic site of Penmon and Puffin Island then around the headland at Black Point and on to Llanddona. There is a network of lanes for cycling between Beaumaris and Llanddona with great views of the coast.
Beaumaris has a programme of events all year round – provisional dates: Anglesey Half Marathon (2 March), a music festival (23-26 May), Menai Strait Regatta (28 July to 9 August), Medieval Festival (23-25 August Bank Holiday), a bonfire party, Victorian Christmas street party (November), New Year’s Eve fireworks (31 December).
East coast beaches
Benllech is a popular sea side destination. The Anglesey Coastal Path and the Wales Coat Path pass through Benllech. Lovely sandy beach ideal for building sandcastles and the rock pools are great for catching crabs! Beach rangers patrol the beach in the summer months and provide organised games for the kids. The beach is family friendly with toilets and refreshments nearby. In the summer holidays it’s a very busy beach but the beach is wide enough to find a quiet spot if you so wish. Sections of the beach are ‘No dogs’ but there are plenty of areas where dogs are allowed.
North coast beaches
At the northern end of the A5025, Amlwch is a historic fishing village associated with the ‘Copper Kingdom’ of Parys Mountain whereas Cemaes Bay is an attractive beach resort, close to Cemlyn nature reserve and Church Bay (Porth Swtan) with its tall cliffs and the oldest fully restored cottage on Anglesey. The National Trust heritage coastline boasts mile after mile of uninterrupted walks along the coastal path. Also at Church Bay is the locally renowned ‘Lobster Pot’ restaurant and ‘Wavecrest’ coffee shop at the end of the coastal path with its speciality cream teas as well as many other homemade delicacies. This area is excellent for all water sports, cycling on the local and national networks, fishing at Llyn Alaw, walking the Anglesey Coastal Path or just quiet reflection.
