“Beautiful old house, lovely surroundings and tip top beaches”

We loved our stay at Hen Gamdda Fawr from the moment we walked into the welcoming entrance: lots of exposed stone, slate windowsills combined with modern facilities ensured a comfortable visit. The owners provided good information about the house, places to visit and a range of local restaurants: the ones we visited were excellent. A garden offering sun and shade with lovely views helped us to relax and the nearby beaches were excellent. We'll be back!

“A home from home”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

So first we were so impressed to find a cottage that was available for a short break! The cottage was really easy to find and as soon as we arrived we felt very at home. My boyfriend went training on his bike and I literally drove 5 minutes and was walking on the beach. The main bed was enormous with lovely luxurious bedding and towels. The only TINY thing was it would have been nice to have had some logs for the fire on the first night. We lit what was there the first night and it just went out!!

South stack lighthouse was pretty amazing and worth a visit. Especially with beautiful blue sky!! The next couple of days were wet and windy which gave us the perfect excuse to hang out in the cottage. The cottage is cosy enough for a couple but equally suitable for a family.

Would certainly recommend to family and friends and anyone else that wants to sample the delights of Anglesey. We might even come back one day!!! ;)

We stayed at Hen Gamdda Fawr for 10 days over the Easter break and had the most wonderful time. The cottage itself is immaculately presented, cosy and had everything we needed to immediately feel at home.
Close by to excellent beaches, wonderful restaurants and lots more to do a short drive away, including a great spa and watching RAF fighter jets in training - a perfect location for a relaxing break and enjoying quality time with your family and friends.

“Perfect place to stay for our weekend family break”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I spent a fantastic weekend at Hen Gamdda Fawr cottage with my husband and two children (aged 5 and 7). The picturesque cottage has a really nice ambience with its oak beams and cosy log burning stove. The cottage is very comfortable, well equipped and clean, and the high quality bedding and towels were appreciated. My mum joined us for one night and we utilised the sofa bed which was ideal. It was nice to sit outside in the sunshine and the gravel front garden provided a great area for the kids to play.

The cottage was an excellent base for us as we played on the beach at Benllech and Red Wharf Bay Sailing Club which is 5 minutes drive away and 5-10 minutes drive to Moelfre to visit the lifeboat station and Red Wharf Bay for lovely coastal walks and some nice pubs and eateries. We went out on walks from the cottage too and experienced the lovely countryside.

The best part of the holiday was spending time in the cottage relaxing with my family. The least enjoyable aspect was having to leave to get back to work as we could have done with staying a few more days but we are already planning to go back to stay at the cottage again as we had a lovely time.
