About Cai Ross
Bob and Barbara Ross at your service. We moved to Deganwy in 1988 to open a French country-style restaurant, which we ran here for over 15 years - Barbara being quite the Francophile and a natural in the kitchen. All the while we lived above the restaurant with our two children. Before that, we had been running a successful country pub near Corwen, having spent the previous decade farming in the hills above Ruthin. During that time, I played double-bass with the Merseysippi Jazz Band, which led to me jetting off regularly to America to perform in jazz festivals, with Barbara as my chief groupie. Since "retiring" in 2003, we have lived in the Languedoc in south-west France, in a succession of self-renovated cottages. It is an ideal location to indulge one of our other great passions: wine. Whenever we find a new and exciting wine, we ship it back over to the restaurant to sell exclusively.

Why Cai Ross chose Deganwy
We fell in love with Deganwy as soon as we spotted it. We were keen sailors with a boat restoration project in the offing. As such, Deganwy was ideally located for us on the river Conwy, an extremely popular area for skippers from all over the world. We also found that, having lived a rural existence for so long, Deganwy was a remarkably central location. It is less than an hour's driving distance from Liverpool, Chester, Portmeirion, Snowdonia and Beaumaris. We recently used our renovation skills to transform this waterfront-set family home into an extremely comfortable holiday flat for others to enjoy.
What makes this Apartment unique
Like many properties from the same period, the rooms are very spacious. The décor is unobtrusive and designed to help you relax. The moment we both looked at each other and instantly decided to buy this place was when we first gazed through the living room window at the boat-filled river, over to Conwy castle with the mountain range of Snowdonia set clearly in the distance. We felt privileged to have had such a view on our doorstep for so long.

North Wales Gem
Cai has provide an excellent holiday in Deganwy. The location opposite the railway provides option for rail or car travel with ease. From the windows you can look out towards Conwy Castle and this makes a wonderful backdrop in the evening. The water views are also wonderful to watch. The home itself is spacious, although some may find the stairs to the bedroom a little steep, but this in no way should put you off staying here if you are able to negotiate stairs. To not stay may deprive you of a great holiday experience and a great host in Cai. For those wondering if the restaurant below is a problem with noise, we found this not an issue and if anything it was a pleasure thinking that people below where enjoying a meal in Cai's restaurant.
If in the area we will be-book and stay again. It was a great place to stay.
Well equipped. Comfortable. Great views.
Have stayed here a number of times. Really handy for lovely walks around the estuary. Easy parking. Relaxing stay.
Just had a brilliant few days in North Wales complemented by the accommodation we stayed in. This 2 storey maisonette was very spacious, had everything needed for a short self catering break and had some nice personal touches like a bottle of red wine on arrival and sweets for the kids. The only downside is the fact you have to go up a fairly tight staircased entrance and it has no private parking, although you can park in the car park opposite with the pass provided. It is also quite cold accomodation, even with the heating on it's not the warmest although there is an electric fire which gets the downstairs warm enough. The view from the front is amazing though, you can see Conwy Castle and the whole place is very comfortable and relaxing.
Look at that view!
A lovely apartment overlooking the estuary to Conway which has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We came to visit the annual Conway Food Festival and couldn't have been better situated. Having the fabulous Paysanne restaurant just downstairs added to our enjoyment.
fantastic stay. relaxing and amazing.
Great location and views
The flat was in a great location with fab views over the estuary and castle. It was well appointed with all we needed. The wine & fruit on arrival was a nice touch however a small supply of milk in the fridge would have been good as we arrived late and then had to go back out to find milk! We met Cai the owner and also dined in Paysanne which is definitely recommended.
