The Crow’s Nest
Browse the wildlife books back at base and then, when the tide ebbs, poke around the rock pools or simply sit on the terrace and watch the curlews fly. In the evenings open the terrace doors, curl up with a book and gaze out to the starry skies above.
This roost for two has been carefully converted and, from the first floor, has the perfect look-out point to drink in the view across the bay (home to the famous Skerries lighthouse). Within the traditional exterior is a high specification modern and comfortable interior. A sleek kitchen is perfectly placed in the living area so that you can cook and overlook the views. The usual conveniences are provided to make your stay a comfortable one such as a dishwasher, microwave, HD flat screen TV with Freesat and a DVD player.
On the ground floor is an inviting bedroom with a twinkling chandelier over a king bed, dressed with downy pillows and cotton sheets. Settle in comfort and lap up the view. You could have breakfast in bed as you gaze across the bay.
An en-suite bathroom leads off the bedroom with slate floors, roll-top bath and large shower. Return from windswept walks to a drenching hot shower – or long soak in a candle lit bath. On a practical note, a small utility provides a second WC and a washing machine and coat storage.
The terrace with table and chairs allows you to perch and watch the world go by. Or stroll down to the beach for the sea air or roam the endless lanes with hedgerows that smell heavenly. The surrounding area is a haven for nature lovers providing fantastic walks, course and sea fishing, riding and sailing opportunities. The Coastal Footpath passes only paces away and leads on to other secluded coves and beaches such as Church Bay a mile and a half away, which is famous for The Lobster Pot restaurant. Or, just pop in for a cream scone at the Wavecrest cafe. One of those scones equals a thousand walks to wear it off, so keep meandering along the cliffs to drink in the views.
Crow’s Nest has parking in a car park about 40 metres away.
The local village is a mile away with a shop for groceries and a great new pub with wood burning stove and local food.
Only 10 miles away is the port town of Holyhead, not just offering the convenience of supermarkets but also links to Ireland. The A55 expressway is 10 minutes away, giving easy access to explore the beauty of the Isle of Anglesey and with the majestic Snowdonia mountain range only a thirty minute drive away.
Finally as Borthwen Barns are close to the privately owned Carreglwyd Country Estate, the huge fishing lake and beautiful woodland walks can be made available to all guests on request. There will be a small cost for use of the fishing of the lake.
