A coastal estate in North Wales with its own private beaches has gone on the market for the first time in 60 years. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

The Bodior Estate in the village of Rhoscolyn, Holy Island, Anglesey is being marketed through Savills with a guide price of £7.75 million. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Extending to about 639 acres in total, the estate centres around a Grade II listed country house with eleven bedrooms and a flat surrounded by grounds and a courtyard of traditional stone barns. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Situated on Holy Island’s coastline, it comes with a private beach with a stone beach hut. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Rhydian Scurlock-Jones, rural director at Savills, comments: “Bodior is a very unique offering – its coastal position, close to the highly desirable Rhoscolyn on Holy Island, means there are endless amenity, leisure and environmental opportunities. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

“This is the first time it has been on the market since the 1950s.” ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​


Included in the sale is an in-hand farm including a five-bedroom farmhouse and a range of modern farm buildings, along with 312 acres of farmland. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

There is also 263 acres of woodland, a detached three-bedroom farmhouse and a pair of semi-detached cottages. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Four additional houses and cottages are included which are currently let or used as holiday lets, generating additional income. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Mr Scurlock-Jones said: “Conservation has always played a big part in how Bodior is managed and farmed due to its huge diversity of wildlife. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

“The farming system focuses on sympathetic stocking rates, restoring traditional field boundaries and managing and planting hedgerows. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

“The estate has historically sold its own home grown produce via a farm shop on the estate, but now sells it through a leading supermarket brand and achieves a premium price for its native breeds.” ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

The estate dates from the sixteenth century and was created by descendants of a Welsh clan leader Llywelyn Aurdorchog of Ial in Denbighshire. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

The estate was passed down through the family and John Hampton of Henllys inherited the Bodior Estate and substantially rebuilt the house in the 19th century. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

When he died in 1843, the estate passed to his son, John Lewis Hampton Lewis, who married Frances Elizabeth Lanson and for whom the house was further remodelled in 1848. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

The Hampton-Lewis family owned the estate until 1946. Shortly after, the estate was purchased by Bertram Bulmer and has remained in the ownership of the Bulmer family to this day. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

The Bodior Estate is being sold as a whole or in three lots, details of which can be viewed online. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​
