Having a smaller family doesn’t have to mean a smaller home, as the Afon Conwy more than proves. With no need for a third bedroom, we have been able to expand both double bedrooms to a generous size, and give each it’s own en-suite shower room and separate storage.
Downstairs, you will discover a full width living room, flooded with light from the French doors, along with downstairs cloaks and a fully fitted kitchen off the main hall.
With so much space for you and your family on the inside the Afon Conwy is perfect for young families.
