The Smithy, as the name implies, is a tastefully converted former
Smithy near Beaumaris with a datestone of 1811. Records show a Smithy in Llanfaes from the early 16th Century so it is assumed 1811 is a 'modernisation' date.
It was converted to a high
quality holiday home in around 1985, just before it was acquired by the
current owners who have continued to improve and update the Grade 2
listed cottage to its beautifully appointed standard.
The Smithy is situated in the quiet hamlet of Llanfaes that is
about 1 mile from Beaumaris on the Island of Anglesey, North Wales.
The accommodation comprises of a family living kitchen with log
burning stove, cosy two seater settee and wall mounted flatscreen television. Off the kitchen is a utility
room with fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer/ dryer. The main living
room is approximately 650 sq.ft and measures circa 30 feet to the eaves
with exposed beams and timber boarded ceiling. It has a vast inglenook
fireplace and a large log burning stove.
The master bedroom is approached via a spiral staircase that is
accessed onto a gallery overlooking the lounge. This double room has
exposed timber beams and timber boarded ceiling. It has an open plan
bathroom with roll top Victorian bath and separate W.C and wash hand
basin. The second double bedroom is approached via a crug stair and
has a double bed, built in pine wardrobes and a wash hand basin. There
are two further bedrooms on the ground floor, one with bunk beds and the
other with a single bed. There is also a fold out bed and travel cot
sleeping a total of 8 plus infant. The family bathroom on the ground
floor was recently refitted comprising of 'P' shape bath with shower and
corner wash hand basin.
There is a conservatory which opens out onto a patio with cast iron
furniture. A unique log mounted Outback Gas Barbeque is also on the
patio. The raised garden makes it a perfect sun trap, benefitting from sun all day long.
There is a flat screen television in the lounge with built in HD freeview, twin freesat recorder
and DVD player /recorder in addition to a hifi with CD and iPod
docking. There are a selection of books and games for guests to enjoy
during their stay.
