About Glascoed Guesthouse, Llandudno
The majority of Llandudno was laid out in 1849 by the Mostyn family, who leased most of the plots for development and influenced the building design and uses of the land. The Glascoed Guesthouse was built in 1863 on land that had been sold to a local builder Joseph Hughes and John Hughes two brothers. Originally built and used as a lodging house the name Glascoed was given sometime between 1877 and 1904 by R.Owens.
The house also played its part during the war and was taken over by the Ministry of Health for what purpose we do not know. It was then auctioned off at the Imperial Hotel on the 24th May 1954 and sold to a Doris Lincoln Evans and Gwen Lincoln Evans who held the property until January 1974.
Chapel Street forms part of the Conservation area of Llandudno and as such the buildings within the street have a wonderful Victorian charm about their appearance. Glascoed is one of the very few that has retained the original sash windows to the front of the property ensuring that you get to see the true beauty of Victorian architecture when you stay here.
Glascoed Guesthouse is now owned and run by Berin and Sarah Jones with the help of their two sons during holiday times where you will often find them serving in the dining room. This is after Berin and Sarah decided to make a life changing move in 2012 to work in a business that allowed them to spend more time together as a family.
They moved from Southampton where Sarah had been born and brought up. Berin was born and brought up in Carmarthen, South Wales and has lots of family connections with the beautiful North Wales as his Grandparents lived in Llanfair PG until they passed away. Berin is also the Chairman of the Llandudno Hospitality Association and so you are assured of consistent service standards when you stay here.
As a regular and much loved holiday destination for the family they also have a wealth of knowledge about things to do and things to see, that is rare to find in guesthouse owners in and around the area, so why not ask them for suggestions about how to enjoy the beauty of North Wales or check out the details in http://www.llandudno.com/
