House in Bangor, Snowdonia, North Wales, Great Britain

Our house is situated between the mountains of Snowdonia and the Island of Anglesey, so there are lots of outdoor activities easily available. Bangor is a small University town of about 15,000 inhabitants and 8,000 students (who are away on holiday from June to September). We live in Upper Bangor close to the University.

It is a spacious house built in 1838 and most of our friends like it.There is lots of space in the bedrooms and three reception rooms downstairs.
 
We also have a very small flat in central London which could form part of a holiday - it is a 4 hour train trip from Bangor.

Our Neighbourhood

  • shopping Morrisons Supermarket (0.2 km)
  • boating This is where our house is!! (0.3 km)

We're in a pleasant residential neighbourhood in Upper Bangor above most of the city. There are university buildings all around and its busy in term time and quiet in the university holidays - June to September plus Easter and Christmas.
The house is 7 minutes walk from the mainline station with frequent trains to London (takes about 3.5 hours) and Holyhead (35 minutes) where there are boats to Dublin in Ireland. It is on a major bus route and 12 minutes walk from the Bangor bus station.

Liverpool (1.5 hours by road) and Manchester (about the same or 2.5 hours by train) are the nearest international airports. Because of the railway any of the London airports are also quite practical.
