A delightful Victorian mid-terraced cottage, recently awarded 4 stars by the Welsh Tourist Board, and said to be at the "upper end" of that rating, ´Guillemot´ offers stylish contemporary accommodation. This cottage has undergone extensive renovation and refurbishment to offer stylish but comfortable accommodation. It is maintained to a high standard.
The cottage is located centrally within the picturesque coastal town of Beaumaris. Home to the last and largest of King Edwards I’s Welsh fortifications, Beaumaris Castle, surrounded by a partly restored moat, offer visitors a glimpse into the history of one of the most sophisticated examples of medieval military architecture in Britain. So whether you want to delve into the historical sites around Beaumaris, take a fantastic family cruise along the Menai straits for a close up view of birds and seals on Puffin Island or simply want to sample the delights of the High Street, Beaumaris is an absolutely lovely little town rich in character.
Guillemot is perfect for year round breaks and ideal for couples and families. And in case you didn’t know, a guillemot is a seabird which nests on sheer cliffs such as at South Stack on Anglesey from March to July.
