The Queen’s Head Storehouse Cottage offers charming self catering in Llandudno. The annual Victorian Extravaganza is returning this weekend. If you would prefer self catering in Llandudno for a more intimate and private atmosphere this bank holiday you have only a couple of days left to book before the Victorian Extravaganza. This May bank holiday will be three full days of Victorian themed excitement in Llandudno town.
Llandudno has a great deal to offer for nature lovers, food lovers, beach lovers and this weekend Victorian theme lovers too. The Victorian Extravaganza festival is a celebration of Llandudno town as a tourist destination in the Victorian era and today. There will be traditional Victorian sideshows, juggling, accordion playing, performances and fairground rides.
If you have been to the Extravaganza weekend before you will know how popular it is. The central roads will be closed to cars so you can wander the streets observing the different acts and Victorian themed trains and costumes. If you visit Llandudno for the weekend you can avoid the parking hassle and stay in our storehouse cottage. The self catering option is perfect for those with dietary requirements or those who simply want to cook for themselves.
If you stay in accommodation in Llandudno you can easily change outfits during the day if you are planning on donning Victorian attire, which many do. There are even costume competitions to be judged along with all the performances and stalls. The Victorian Extravaganza is one of North Wales’ best annual events. 2013 is going to be a brilliant line up with the addition of a stage for local bands to play. Music will commence at 10am every day.
The Storehouse Cottage has an adjoining private garden with a courtyard and garden furniture. The perfect place to relax in the May sunshine after a day of seeing all the Extravaganza has to offer. There is also the option of using the Shuttle Bus if you don’t fancy too much walking.

Selecting the finest ingredients to serve is something that gives us great pleasure. Sourcing from local suppliers and growers wherever possible is something that we strive to achieve. When it comes to olive oil though, this can be something of a challenge! We are delighted to be able to offer a very special greek grown oil from the Eleonas Estate. The oil is grown and processes on the estate and optimized for quality and taste. The 2012/13 harvest was an excellent one, the estate not being adversely effected by the excessive rain in Spain and other parts of Europe.
This year the taste is slightly less peppery and lighter but retains the aromatic properties that make this oil so sought after. The estate tries to harvest slightly earlier than many others which may result in less yield but better quality.
Olive oil is not just for salads but finds a place in many parts of the cooks repertoire, being healthier than butter and other oils. You can purchase a 250 ml bottle at the the Queen’s Head at £7.95.

The Christmas ‘Pony Treasure Hunt’ was a great opportunity for children and parents to enjoy time together. Punch and mince pies for the adults, sweets for the children and carrots of the ponies ensured everyone was suitably sustained.
The pictures below show some of the fun that was had by all.

Every Halloween, The Queen’s Head holds a special children’s Trick or Treat Halloween night for the kids in the village and surrounding areas, and in some cases their parents. There is an early evening of door to door trick or treating and then everyone piles back into the pub for a feast of scary Halloween goodies, cakes, sweeties and a gift for each child at the end. Definitely to be repeated every year.

The famous Glanwydden VIllage bonfire night’s are always a delight and we help to raise money for local charities too. The children in the village have their very own sweetie stand and they donate the proceeds to Ty Gobaith every year. The proceeds from the hot dog and hamburger stand goes to a different local charity every year.

Sally Cureton, Propietor of the Queen’s Head don’s her nightgown at midnight and walks 5k with other mad friends with just the stars to guide them. Starting from Eirias Park this year, down to the promenade and to Rhos on Sea and back again, the midnight wanderers raised much needed funds for Ty Gobaith.

Pimms and a Lobster Luncheon
Ladies enjoy nothing more than lunch with friends and that was exactly what we had on offer at the Queens Head Glanwydden.
Our guests (pictured) enjoyed Pimm in the sunshine before a mouth watering lobster lunch.
Thanks to the generosity of the Queens Head and its local suppliers the event raised more than £1300.
