Tameside Advertiser - - TRAVEL -

TAND­ING ma­jes­ti­cally in the heart of the beau­ti­ful Conwy Val­ley, with the foothills of the Snow­do­nia range as a dra­matic back­drop, a warm wel­come awaits you at Maenan Abbey.

As soon as you en­ter the grand en­trance hall with its gal­leried land­ing and blaz­ing log fire in win­ter, you will feel im­me­di­ately at home.

The 14 bed­rooms are all in­di­vid­u­ally de­signed and com­prise four-poster rooms with jacuzzis, two-bed­roomed fam­ily suites and a flex­i­ble mix­ture of dou­ble and twin rooms.

Af­ter a long day ex­plor­ing some of the many at­trac­tions that the area has to of­fer - Maenan Abbey is just a short drive from both the coast and the moun­tains - you can un­wind in the friendly bar or re­lax­ing lounge.

Feel free to bring along your furry friends as the Abbey is ex­tremely pet friendly. With the ex­cep­tion of the hypo-al­ler­genic room, dogs are wel­come in all bed­rooms and the bar, lounge and lobby at all times.

A great deal of re­fur­bish­ment has been car­ried out re­cently, in­clud­ing the bar, sev­eral of the bed­rooms, and the ex­quis­ite dining room.

All of the bed­rooms have flat screen tele­vi­sions with in­te­grated DVD play­ers and guests are wel­come to bor­row DVDs from a com­pli­men­tary li­brary.

The two-bed­roomed Fam­ily Suites also have a Wii sys­tem to help keep the lit­tle ones amused.

Some­times it’s the small things that make all the dif­fer­ence and touches like Egyptian cot­ton bed linen, fluffy tow­els and lux­u­ri­ous Gilchrist and Soames toi­letries just add that ex­tra touch of luxury.

Built on the site of the his­toric 13th cen­tury Cis­ter­cian Abbey, the burial place of the princes of Gwynedd, the Abbey’s his­tory goes back a long way. To find out more or to make a book­ing, visit www. mae­nan­abbey.co.uk or call 01492 660 247.
