Recently Renovated Two Bedroom Victorian Town-house, Overlooking Conwy Castle.
About Cai Ross
Bob and Barbara Ross at your service. We moved to Deganwy in 1988 to open a French country-style restaurant, which we ran here for over 15 years - Barbara being quite the Francophile and a natural in the kitchen. All the while we lived above the restaurant with our two children. Before that, we had been running a successful country pub near Corwen, having spent the previous decade farming in the hills above Ruthin. During that time, I played double-bass with the Merseysippi Jazz Band, which led to me jetting off regularly to America to perform in jazz festivals, with Barbara as my chief groupie. Since "retiring" in 2003, we have lived in the Languedoc in south-west France, in a succession of self-renovated cottages. It is an ideal location to indulge one of our other great passions: wine. Whenever we find a new and exciting wine, we ship it back over to the restaurant to sell exclusively.

Why Cai Ross chose Deganwy
We fell in love with Deganwy as soon as we spotted it. We were keen sailors with a boat restoration project in the offing. As such, Deganwy was ideally located for us on the river Conwy, an extremely popular area for skippers from all over the world. We also found that, having lived a rural existence for so long, Deganwy was a remarkably central location. It is less than an hour's driving distance from Liverpool, Chester, Portmeirion, Snowdonia and Beaumaris. We recently used our renovation skills to transform this waterfront-set family home into an extremely comfortable holiday flat for others to enjoy.
What makes this Apartment unique
Like many properties from the same period, the rooms are very spacious. The décor is unobtrusive and designed to help you relax. The moment we both looked at each other and instantly decided to buy this place was when we first gazed through the living room window at the boat-filled river, over to Conwy castle with the mountain range of Snowdonia set clearly in the distance. We felt privileged to have had such a view on our doorstep for so long.
Property based on first and second floor, no lift available.

Lovely accommodation in a beautiful setting
Everything was first rate. Communication in the run up, arrival arrangements, the accommodation itself and the area.
Thanks for a fantastic short break.
Our 4 days in North Wales
House was good for the 3 of us, stairs were not an issue but definitely not the norm. Home away did not forward us the code but Cai showed up shortly after getting in touch with him and he was there quickly to let us in. The view from the dining room table was great and changed with the tide and we looked out over Conwy Castle. We were travelling by train and it stopped right in front of the apartment, perfect. Trains in Wales are a little different than Cornwall and Devon. From our stop at Deganwy the train did not stop on Sundays, horrible for us as we had to walk (35 min fast) to Llandudno Junction to get the train. Thank god it was not raining. Many shops in Wales seem to close around 5 pm quite earlier than we are use to, and alot of places are closed on Mondays.

a lovely property eclectic furnishings.everything you could want for a short stay with lovely view of the harbour and castle . friendly owner and good value for money.
The photos and views attracted us from the outset and the real thing was just as good. Lovely walking into Conwy, visiting nearby Llandudno. and so much more. Definitely eat at Paysanne downstairs (run by the owner). Great food at sensible prices. Would we stay again? YES.
A comfortable flat with a fabulous view of Conwy and the Castle. The owner, Cai, provided a welcome basket of fruit, cereal, and a bottle of wine, and there were provisions for a lovely cuppa on arrival. The stairs were as listed, a bit on the steep side, but manageable and the beds were extremely comfortable. The location provided a relaxing few days break with quick access to Llandudno or Conwy.
