Grove House is a large gentleman's residence, dating back to 1790, 1 of 3 holiday homes set up a sweeping drive in almost 2 acres of terraced and landscaped grounds above the pretty unspoilt seaside town of Llansteffan.
Retaining its original Georgian charm, the large rooms with high ceilings give a real feeling of space, while the great sash windows, some with wooden shutters make the most of the sensational views over the town, golden sandy beach and sea of the Towy estuary. Comfortably furnished, the sitting room has an open fire to cosy round with French doors opening to a flagged terrace, ideal for enjoying an al fresco meal, overlooking the beautifully laid and terraced garden below which you are welcome to wander. The main front bedrooms also offer the most breathtaking water views and balcony. The shared grounds stretch up behind you with a further large sloping lawn, while steps lead up to the glorious heated outdoor swimming pool which will give hours of enjoyment for all, a wonderful sunny spot with stunning views over the whole coastline.
There are several pubs within walking distance in Llansteffan, as well as a post office and village shop which also includes a wonderful cafe running food themed nights. The glorious sandy beach is within a 5 minute walk, fish and chips from Florries on the beach car park are a must of any holiday, as is a walk round the majestic 12th Century Castle ruins set above the beach. A wonderful holiday home for families and friends to get away from it all and truly relax.
Care needed as uneven steps and some unfenced drops.
