RHOS-ON-SEA (a village by the Sea)
Rhos-on-Sea and Beachmount are an ideal base for touring the attractions of the North Wales area which are diverse.
There are many historical towns and castles in North Wales and stunning and picturesque scenery in the Snowdonia National Park plus lovely sandy beaches and the Isle of Anglesey within easy driving distance.
The village itself is a ‘gem’ with a picturesque harbour and small sandy beach plus a variety of shops to browse around and plenty of cafes and takeaway food shops not forgetting our two Pubs!
Our shops include a local butcher, a delicatessen, a farm shop, two small supermarkets, a post office, jewellers, pet shop, travel agent, dress shops, newsagents, a bank, estate agents to name but a few.
It is possible to book fishing trips in Rhos and there is a shop where you can purchase all the bait that you need. You can hire kayaks and wetsuits to try your hand at kayaking.
There is a cycle track which stretches from one end of the bay to the other in fact it is possible to cycle all the way to Rhyl and beyond. If you prefer walking then it is lovely bay to stroll around and perhaps stop for a drink, snack or ice cream at one of the popular kiosks.
Weekends can be particularly busy with jet skiing and motor boats in a specially designated area and you can often see small yachts out on the bay.
The tiny chapel of Saint Trillo is situated on the foreshore at Rhos-on-Sea almost at the bottom of the Colwyn Avenue, the Road on which Beachmount stands.
The sea front at Rhos is very popular with bird watchers: many different kinds of bird visit the area and the sight and sound of them makes a stroll along the prom a great delight.
The Rhos-on-Sea golf course is about a mile away from Beachmount and for entertainment we have our own Harlequin Puppet Theatre.
Theatre Colwyn and Llandudno’s Theatre Cymru are only a couple of miles away with Rhyl’s Pavilion Theatre and Cineworld not too far away either.
Altogether a great place to stay!
