“A charming seaside home”

Faraway is a charming home-from-home right beside the sea. It has lovely views and a quiet beach opposite. The house is very comfortable for a large family -there were 5 adults and 2 children in our group. The garden was good for the children, and was gated so they could play in the front garden as well as the back. It was well equipped with toys and books too!
Faraway is in an excellent location for lots of beaches, and a short drive to local attractions. The kids loved Pilly Palace, the Sea Zoo, and Cartio-mon Karting nearby.

“Take the dogs,lovely walk along beach into Rhosneigr”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

Stayed at Faraway for 3 nights over the bank holiday.
The bungalow was very easy to find, it stands lovely right opposite the beach, and with fabulous countryside views at the back. The back garden is completely secure, our dogs loved it.
The cottage is very spacious, lots of bedroom space which is usually an issue with holiday rentals.
If you walk to Rhosneigr, you can cross the road straight on to the path opposite which is grassy and then heads through the dunes, or walk along the beach, either way is about a 40 minute walk, especially if you keep stopping to take pictures of the stunning views, the beach is very quiet ,ideal for dogs that just want to run. Half way (through the dunes) you can stop at The Oystercatcher for a coffee.
If you cross road from faraway and take the path to the left, you come across a stunning beach after 6/7 minutes, then walk up the cliff path, and when you get to the top there is a stunning view of the bungalow and the whole of Rhosneigr, and the path goes back round in a circle again.
I wouldn't advise walking along the road at all, the road is quiet but the cars travel at some speed on that stretch of road to Rhosneigr, the paths are lovely, stick to them.
Wish the weather had been warmer during our stay as were not able to sit in the garden at Faraway at all, to enjoy the scenery.
Will return i am sure, always good to find a dog friendly property, that has decent wi-fi too.

“Fantastic property for a relaxing weekend at the beach”

We had a wonderful stay at faraway. The accommodation was extremely clean and well equipped for our every need. The rooms were spacious and light with plenty of space for a cosy night in on the Friday.

Across the road was a path down to onto the beach which is a pleasant walk along the sea front into rhosneigr village where we found a selection of places to eat, ranging from a great cafe for breakfast to pubs and restaurants which we utilised on the Saturday night.

Overall we had a lovely trip and would recommend the property to anyone from a group of couples to a family.

“Stunning location yards from long sandy beach”
Reviewed 19 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

With our family, we have stayed at Faraway many times and always have a great time. The location is superb - 30 seconds' walk from the long sandy beach which stretches to the north towards Rhosneigr (which is a great walk for the kids with ice cream as enticement). The house is very comfortable - a real home-from-home and plenty of room. The garden has huge, enclosed, lawned areas which are great for the kids to run around whilst getting ready to go to the beach or afterwards, when preparing supper. And there is nothing better than sitting on the bench at the front of the house with a G&T watching the sun go down.

“A beautiful location - perfect for all ages”
Reviewed 2 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

With ages ranging from 2 to 62, it's not often you find a holiday cottage with something for everyone but we certainly struck lucky in Anglesey! Faraway is in a beautiful setting, with easy access over the road to the beach, surrounded by lovely countryside but still an easy distance from local attractions. The enclosed garden was perfect for our toddler, and ample parking meant we could bring two cars to make the most of the island. We'd highly recommend a visit!
