Nestled within large enclosed grounds of approximately 1 acre, Cedar Lodge provides a private peaceful country retreat. Located just 2 miles from the A55 and the coast, it is an ideal base for exploring North Wales. In a delightful elevated setting, this luxury detached property with private heated outdoor swimming pool (available April to end of September) is designed to take full advantage of uninterrupted views over open countryside to the Carneddau mountain range (part of Snowdonia), stretching out to the coast with Puffin Island and the Isle of Anglesey taking centre stage, reaching as far as The Great Orme and Little Orme in Llandudno. Located at the end of a quiet private cul-de-sac, yet only 10 min walk from the nearest pub and convenience store and less than 2 miles from the beach, Cedar Lodge provides the ideal location for your family getaway.
Cedar Lodge is equally appropriate as a base that is located at the heart of the North Wales holiday region, close to all the attractions of Llandudno, Colwyn Bay and Conwy, or as a secluded holiday spot where you can enjoy superb facilities while you maintain complete privacy and are able to get away from it all and enjoy the fabulous views that are available from every room.
Sleeping up to 12, Cedar Lodge is popular with families and friends getting together for a summer holiday or short break. It provides a superb place to celebrate special occasions and is very well suited to multi-generation gatherings as there is much to delight visitors of all ages. All guests can enjoy the large state-of-the-art cinema room, which has a massive 86-inch screen, cinema quality surround sound and electronic fully reclining cinema chairs from which you can enjoy films via Netflix and Sky Cinema in full 4k resolution. Children are kept entertained with the high-performance Xbox One X games console and guests of all ages can enjoy the pool table as well as the large enclosed gardens and private heated outdoor swimming pool. The house was extensively refurbished during the first half of 2020, and provides a high-quality, luxurious retreat for your holiday stay.
UPDATE FOR 2020
Due to the unprecedented effects that the COVID-19 restrictions have had on holiday travel, we will continue to keep the swimming pool open (and heated) for the whole of October 2020. Any booking in October 2020 will therefore be able to benefit from continued use of the Pool.
Enhanced cleaning regimes: to ensure the safety of our guests, we have introduced stringent new cleaning/disinfecting regimes to comply with best industry standards. As well as the standard house cleaning/laundry service, before all new guests arrive "high-touch" areas are hand-cleaned with anti-viral disinfectant. In addition, at the end of the clean, all rooms are subject to commercial Bio-misting/Fogging using a non-toxic virucidal disinfectant, to provide the highest level of reassurance to our guests.
The property has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one en-suite), 2 cloakrooms with WC, large well equipped kitchen, dining room that seats 12 in comfort, living room, lovely conservatory with panoramic views, plenty of private parking for up to 6 vehicles, large lawns, patios and a huge decked balcony with stunning views.
