Branstone Guest House
Llandudno sits nestled between the headlands of the Little Orme and the Great Orme. With the Irish Sea at one side, and the estuary of the river Conwy on the other, you can walk across town from miles of golden sandy beaches, with dunes to explore and the chance to land-yacht, wind surf or even try kite boarding, to pebble beaches, Punch and Judy and yes, even Donkey rides.
Long before the pre-fabs of the 1950s, Llandudno could be described as a purpose built resort. Marshland was drained and developed by Lord Mostyn, a visionary and highly enthusiastic developer and entrepreneur, who began work to create a new town in 1857. Along with promenades, arcades and all good Victorian facilities, he built a new Church and a pier, following the Victorian tradition of including a folly or two whenever possible.
Llandudno now offers a magnificent mix of welcoming traditional pubs and restaurants, as well as eateries from all over Europe, meaning everyone is, quite literally, catered for. If you enjoy live shows, then the North Wales Theatre offers true seaside fare, as well as a broad range of top class music and culture. The Oriel Mostyn art gallery is renowned across Wales as one of the best in Britain, and there are numerous Castles and historic parks and houses all within an easy drive through beautiful countryside.
At the end of the 380m pier, you can look inland and see the beautiful and majestic mountains of Snowdonia. Take a trip up the Great Orme and you can visit the enthralling Bronze-age copper mines, where entire families would live, and sometimes die whilst taking part in what was probably the very first organised industry in Britain.
Because of the beauty and magnificence of itsí surrounds, itís no surprise that Llandudno welcomes visitors from all over the World, all year round.
Branstone guest house is ideally located for all the best attractions Llandudno has to offer, with the Great Orme Tram less than a 5 minute walk away, and the beach and pier within the same distance, itís easy to enjoy the more established delights of a British seaside town. But, as a kind of ying to a seaside yang, thereís a ski slope, a toboggan run and one of Europeís longest cable car systems, which together provide a unique Alpine feel to this part of the Welsh coast.
