“Perfect home for families or friends”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed at Bodfan over the new year. The house suited us perfectly! Two families with 4 children aged between 8 and 15. Not to forget 2 dogs. The children loved exploring the gardens and making use of all rooms in the house. The younger boys spent many hours playing hide and seek, loving the use of two staircases and masses of room and lots of hiding places. It was spy kids heaven! the children used the wide selection of games in the game room.

Bodfan has a feel of a well loved family home, which is now a great holiday rental. Perfect for those wanting a rustic country getaway, spacious yet with a cosy feel. Very child and dog friendly. The house has everything we needed for a relaxing break.

The owner Gillian greeted us with generous hospitality and helped with suggestions for local sights and places to stay. Great way to start 2017.

“Incredible ”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Home from a wonderful week in Bodfan. Our three large dogs loved all the indoor and outdoor space that this house provided.
At first I was hesitant to book this house as it wasn't as modern as we are used to, however the photos don't give it justice and there is absolutely everything you need and more here.
I wish we had booked for longer as we didn't want to leave the beautiful house, beaches, mountains and countryside.
Thank you for everything Gillian. Ps your dog is gorgeous!

Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We loved our stay at the cottage! Gillian the owner was so helpful and friendly, the cottage has everything you may need it is very well equipped and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. Our dogs loved the paddock, it's perfect for them to burn off some energy. We will definitely return to the cottage! Thank you Gillian.

“Lovely stay, exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Gillian is a wonderful host, welcoming us with Welsh cakes and a bottle of wine, plus some nibbles for our dog!

We all loved staying at Bodfan - it's quiet, secluded and in the middle of beautiful countryside. Not only was there plenty of space to walk the dog, the gardens provided a very restful backdrop to our short break away.

The house itself provided more space than we could have asked for. I loved the library, and breakfasts in the conservatory were a treat when the sun came out.

Can't fault the location - very easy to get to the A55 to travel about Anglesey or head to the mainland for further exploration, would be very happy to make a return visit!

“would advise anyone with or without dogs to visit wonderful cottage”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A wonderful location with everything needed for human and dog visitors. We have 4 dogs with us and we all had a wonderful break in the house of a lovely lady who was always on hand to help pick out good places to go.
Not a bad word to say on our stay to be honest - we will be going back.

“Great House, Great Location, Great Host”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

Stayed at Bodfan with a group of friends and absolutely loved it.

Gillian makes sure her guests feel welcome with lots of goodies and a personal welcome from both her and Isis the dog.

The house itself is wonderful - large rooms stuffed with lovely artwork. Full central heating as well as a log burner to keep warm during cold days and nights. Even details are well considered such as the provision of plenty of cutlery. Fantastic views of Snowdonia from the front rooms.

The gardens are huge and surround the property, including a large fully enclosed field for children and pets to safely run around in. The long tree lined drive full of blossoming daffodils was fabulous.

Finally, Bodfan is in a great location - secluded yet only a few mins from the main A55 road and never more than 30 minutes from any place on Anglesey.

We thoroughly recommend this property (in fact if we could have afforded it for our personal holiday this summer we would booked it again immediately!)
