We stayed here for 1 week with our tow young children aged 4 and 6. Claire and Rai were the most welcoming hosts I've ever encountered, right from the first enquiry we made about the cottage. Claire took the time to send us some leaflets through the post ahead of our stay to help us plan it. When we arrived...

Welcoming hosts, beautiful character cottage and garden, amazing views...the list goes on. Perfect holiday for nature lovers and dog owners wanting total peace and privacy. Everything that you need is provided, quality furnishings and a super comfy bed make the holiday really special. We are coming back again this summer for our 3rd visit....would buy the place if we could!!

Management response:

We are so lucky to have such lovely visitors. However, we will never stay complacent and will continue to 'tweek' the cottages so that we keep everything ship shape. Peace and tranquillity are the order of the day. Hopefully see you soon.

Just outside the village is the Anglesey Model Village where many of the Island's landmarks are recreated in miniature. South of Dwyran, lanes lead through woods and fields to the Menai Strait. Visit Tal y Foel Riding Centre and other attractions such as the Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel farm, Henblas Country Park and glorious clean beaches just a ten minute drive away.<BR>Kite surfing, wind surfing and sailing on pristine beac... more
