Description

” A historic miner’s cottage by the sunny sea shore”

”the busy City dweller will so welcome the respite this lovely stone cottage brings from the toils of Urban life.”

”the perfect setting for a walk on the sunny or wind swept beach with soul-mates, families or friends and then ‘back to our place’ for a lushious ice cream in the sunny garden or wrapped up with a toddy in front of a roaring fire”

” the original name of the cottage was Glan – y – Don, some would translate this to ‘by the sea’ or ‘border of the wave’ an apt name as just at the bottom of the road is the fabulous West Shore (Blue Flag Certified) which stretches for miles of sandy beach or a wave crashing incoming tide, ideal for exhilarating wild water swimming, wind & kite surfing, or more leisurely paddle boarding or just toe tingling paddling and writing prose in the sand”

The cottage dates back to the mid to late 1800’s, before the adjacent Gogarth Abbey, well known as the written birth place of Alice in Wonderland. Local knowledge says it was built for the foreman of the Great Orme Copper Mines, originally there was a terrace of stone cottages running down the road for the miner’s and their families.

Glan – y – Don was a Grade Two listed building, however some time ago it was de-listed and the property was substantially enlarged with extensions to the side and rear. Then re-named Morannedd the property now has some aspects of time gone by, with an inglenook fireplace in the Snug Lounge and a quirky layout, but offers substantial accommodation with three reception rooms, four bedrooms, bath & shower rooms
kitchen/breakfast, two attic rooms, large garden, and parking for 2 cars.

An extract from ”A short history of old Llandudno – by Llandudno Museum August 22, 2020

”The other access to the town was along Conway Shore, turning to the left at Tywyn, following along the Beach, passing Deganwy (which was then a gentleman’s mansion), turning down to the sands, passing through Cerrig Duon (Black Stones), and turning up to Morfa Uchaf (Higher Marsh), just opposite the present west entrance to Gloddaeth Street. On that point there was a gate which was very properly called the Llidiart Gam (Crooked Gate). Standing by that gate. facing the village, and looking a little to your left, you would see, where Gogarth Abbey now stands, a small thatch-roofed cottage, belonging to Griffith Evans also six neat little cottages facing the east, with long strips of well-ordered and well- kept gardens in front of them. They were inhabited by miners, and were, and are still, known as Min-y-don (Edge of the Wave). Close to the cottages, facing south, there is a well-built square house known as Glan-y- don (Border of the Wave). This house was inhabited by a very highly-respected old pair, viz., David and Ellen Williams, better known as Nain Glanydon (Grandmother of Glanydon)”

The cottage has gas fired central heating, some double glazing and has mains water and drainage.
