If you are looking for a beautiful Anglesey holiday house at a sumptuous seafront location, then Pilot House will surpass your brief in abundance. With wonderful views out over the Menai Strait, it offers all the 21st-century luxuries of a boutique hotel whilst retaining its historic character within.
Pilot House was first noted almost two hundred years ago on the 1829 Beaumaris town plan. Today, it is listed for its special architectural interest as a vernacular house with details of Georgian character added at a later date. Do not be fooled by its age or size, as this beautiful property has been lovingly and sympathetically restored by its current owners.
Located just a hop and a skip from the waterfront in Beaumaris, you could be off crabbing or taking in the sea air as soon as you arrive at Pilot House. Or you may simply wish to kick off your shoes, relax and enjoy a coffee in the bay window of the first-floor living room. Take in view of the Menai Strait and the stunning mountains which stretch away into the distance - you could sit here for hours.
Pilot House is split over two and a half floors. The inspirational interior design has been carefully selected to reflect the house's history and location. Flooded with natural light and accented throughout with hues of blue, this is a restful and calming space.
Step into the welcoming entrance hall. To your right is a cosy ground-floor double bedroom - a stunning room to wake up in accompanied by the sounds and sights of the sea. Pad along the hallway to a very modern shower room to wash away a deep night's sleep or the exertions of a day out exploring the island.
Still on the ground floor, at the rear of the property is a modern, well-equipped kitchen/dining area with a separate utility room. The kitchen is a truly sociable space, with a central island and bar stools. The large dining table for 8 is perfect for slow holiday meals and convivial conversation. On warm days, fold back the bi-fold doors and extend the kitchen further onto a beautiful private courtyard. With outdoor mood lighting and a BBQ for that alfresco dining experience, this is an inviting space for balmy summer evenings.
Climb the stairs up onto the first floor, where you will find two beautifully decorated, serene double bedrooms. One to the rear of the property, overlooking the private courtyard below, and the second to the front of the property with a seafront view.
There is a sizeable family bathroom on this floor, with a freestanding bath and shower.
The living room is also on this floor. Relax in luxurious comfort, with the added benefit of a cosy log burner - snuggle up beside it on colder lazy days. The sea and mountain views from this room speak for themselves, a perfect spot for any professional or budding artist.
Wind your way up a further staircase to the second floor. Here you will find a tranquil double room tucked into the eves with windows and skylights built into the roof. Off this bedroom is a breathtaking shower room - pamper yourself to your heart's content.
Pilot House is tucked away on the seafront - step out of the front door and you are just five minutes walk from the centre of the coastal town of Beaumaris. Conveniently close to excellent restaurants and cafes, traditional pubs, great independent shops and a wealth of history including the medieval castle and iconic pier. Or why not arrange for local fine dining delivery company 'The Sorbus Tree' to deliver gastro meals to Pilot House ahead of your stay?
Note that there are two sets of stairs in Pilot House - something to keep in mind when travelling with older or younger generations.
