Not to be missed FREE OF TIE opportunity at an award-winning inn with boutique letting rooms

Exceptional AA 4 star and Visit Wales 4 star coastal dining inn and restaurant with rooms offered either on a ‘Free of Tie’ lease or freehold, with boutique style en-suite letting rooms and stunning views overlooking the North Wales coast in a desirable location in Dwygyfylchi, Conwy.

Property Features:

The County of Conwy is famous for its historic towns, Snowdonian ridges, castles, nature reserves, tiny hillside villages, coastal resorts, lakes and rivers. The famous Zip Word Adventure Park and Snowdonia Surf centres are nearby.  This substantial inn is located in the coastal village of Dwygyfylchi nestling at the bottom of the beautiful Sychnant Pass, between the historic town of Conwy on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park and the Victorian tourist town of Penmaenmawr. 

The village is surrounded by camping and caravanning sites along with a large number of holiday homes, making it a very popular area for tourists throughout the year. The property has excellent road links and is located just off junction 16 of the A55 North Wales trunk road making it an ideal location to stop over when travelling to Ireland via the ferries at Holyhead. This area attracts walkers, cyclists, day-trippers, holidaymakers, as well as a core local clientele seeking top quality food and accommodation in superb surroundings. 

This detached building dates back to the late Victorian era and has been fully refurbished to a very high standard including quality furnishings throughout. The trading areas have stunning views of the sea to the front and mountains to the rear. The bar lounge (circa 45 covers) is a welcoming character room with high ceilings and a warm, relaxing atmosphere. The room features a wooden floor, an attractive wooden central bar servery, brick fireplace with an open fire, wooden tables and a mixture of seating including a leather sofa, tub chairs, wooden chairs and poseur chairs.

The superb restaurant (circa 75 covers) is partially carpeted, has upholstered chairs, leather sofas and chairs, newly reupholstered fixed perimeter seating, wooden tables and a feature fireplace with a cast iron wood-burner. It also includes a mezzanine dining area with a glass balustrade with the benefit of a large atrium double glazed roof which floods the room with light.

There is a separate residents’ breakfast room (circa 20) as well as a private dining room that seats circa fifteen for dining and also has a snug area. In addition, there is a large fully equipped commercial kitchen with modern updated equipment and appliances with a large adjoining washing-up/storage area and utility room. There are external cellar/bottle stores and outdoor storage rooms.  

Situated on the 1st floor are six beautiful boutique style en-suite rooms, with either sea or mountain views, including five double rooms (one with a four-poster bed) and one twin room. There is also a laundry store and store cupboard. 

To the front of the property, with fantastic views of Conwy Bay, the Menai straits & over to Puffin Island, are a smoking area, a grassed and gravel patio area with picnic tables and 2 further raised decking areas with wood tables and chairs surrounded by a transparent glass screening ‘windbreak’. The external areas seat around 100. There are two car parks to the side of the building for circa 25 cars.

Trading Style:

With awards that include AA 4-star Rating; Visit Wales 4-star Rating; CAMRA awards for ‘Seasonal Pub of the Year’, ‘Real ale pub of the year’ and 'most improved pub', being featured in The Good Beer Guide as well as being Casque Marque approved, this really is a truly exceptional opportunity. The current trade split is approx.  40% wet; 42% food; 18% accommodation – with accommodation bookings increasing year on year with the resulting increase in wet and dry trade this is a site that is already trading superbly.

The business has been refurbished throughout including all the letting rooms. With a solid trading foundation that offers high-quality food, drinks and accommodation in beautiful surroundings.  The site is at the centre of the local community with band nights, Bridge Club, charity functions, Book clubs, Welsh language coffee mornings, Gourmet Club and sailing club meetings all being held at the inn.
