About Stuart Houghton
Three generations have used Gosteg as a holiday home and we are happy to share it during the weeks that the family aren't using it. I live 100 miles away in Lancashire and visit Gosteg regularly to make sure everything is in excellent condition. I have a great housekeeper who i can rely on to provide a warm welcome for all my guests.
Stuart Houghton purchased this House in 1984
Why Stuart Houghton chose Moelfre
In 1984 we were fortunate enough to be able to buy Gosteg. It gives me great pleasure to be able to share our holiday home with you which is set in the center of the pretty village of Moelfre and is close to many amenities. All rooms but for one enjoy magnificent uniterupted views across the bay from Llandudno to the the Welsh mountains (which are often caped with snow in the winter mounths). The property benefits from a quiet, pretty and secure private garden adjacent to the coastal path which is situated just below the garden wall. In the summer months many visitors have enjoyed the sight of a school of dolphins playing just offshore. Seals can also be spotted in the waters. The most common sight are cormorants diving for fish just meters from the house. Two sets of binoculars are available to view the wild life and landscapes. Every time you look though the window you see a different picture, even if it's just a change of the light or a yacht coming in to put down anchor for the night (with up to 24 boats in Moelfre bay some weekends).
What makes this House unique
Great views, the photo's give an idea of the panormamic views of the North Welsh coast. As the property is a reasonable distance from the mountains, the weather is generally a lot better than locations closer to the hills. Many local amenetities are a short walk away (within 200 metres of the property): * The local resturant, "Annes Pantry" with excellent food to choose from. * The local pub, "The Kinmel", just across from the beach and serving great Ales and Pub food. * The local bakery/post office, with many food provisions, newspapers, beach equipment and a free cash point. * The shingle beach. * A superb fish and chips shop. A little further (a half of a miles walk) are: * The RNLIs museum covering a history of the local lifeboat station. * The lifeboat station which is open year round to view. A short drive to: * Lligwy beach, a large family friendly beach with licensed cafe and scenic walks. * Traeth bychan (beach), another large family friendly beach with local boat club and refreshments. * Benllech, a large sandy beach and many shops including a Tesco Express, Spar and Co-op. Further a field: * Beaumaris, a pretty town with Castles, Museums, Pier (excellent crabbing) and a good selection of eateries. * Menai, many excellent eateries and pubs and home to teh islands Waitrose. Gosteg is conveniently placed for a walking holiday being adjacent to the coastal path and many inland public footpaths. Anglesey has had many famous historical ship wreaks a notable one being the wreak of the Royal Charter steam clipper returning from Australia during a hurricane on the 26th October 1859. A very fast ship at the time, able to make passage from Liverpool to Australia in 60 days. On this fated voyage she was reported to have been about to break this record. The 480 passengers and crew included many gold miners who had struck it rich and were carrying large amounts of gold ashore. A memorial monument can be found along the coastal path on the way.

What a lovely place to stay
We love this house and this village. We stayed with my parents, and it worked perfectly. My dog was in doggy heaven on the beach close by, and the garden was perfect for her.
The views are fantastic, throughout the house including one of the bathrooms.
We hope to visit again very soon
