Renowned for the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia with its lakes and rock-strewn mountain passes, North Wales also offers a surprisingly varied countryside, from the beautiful Conwy Valley to the tranquillity of the Isle of Anglesey. The coastline is equally diverse, with sandy beaches, rocky coves and spectacular cliffs - and standing proudly over the land and seascape are some of the country's mightiest castles such as Penrhyn. The National Trust owns some 60,000 acres of coast and countryside in North Wales, including some of the majestic mountains of Snowdonia, unspoilt coastline on the Llyn, and an array of historic houses and castles.

Anglesey offers cliffs and crags, inlets and headlands, sandy beaches and bays. From many parts of the island the ever-changing views of the mountains of Snowdonia are spectacular. There are quiet rural lanes to explore and a wealth of traditional stone cottages much favoured by artists. The Anglesey Coastal Path provides access to most of the spectacular coastline where stunning wildlife such as seals, rare birds like Peregrine Falcons and Choughs may be seen daily depending on the time of year. Plas Newydd, the home of the Marquess of Anglesey and principal National Trust property on the island, overlooks the Menai Strait and is set amidst extensive grounds with spectacular views over mainland Snowdonia. The military museum contains relics from the Battle of Waterloo, whilst the extensive grounds and gardens are attractive in full colour throughout the year. Plas Newydd also contains Rex Whistler's largest wall painting. Holiday Cottage guests have free access to Plas Newydd house and gardens during opening hours. National Trust places on Anglesey include Penrhyn Castle and Cemaes Bay, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Other attractions include Anglesey Coastal Path, Llanlleianan Bay, Amlwch, Benllech, Rhosneigr, Trearddur Bay, Anglesey Circuit, Lon Las Cefni. Thomas Telford's Suspension Bridge across the Menai Straits, National Cycle Routes 5 and 8 and, of course, the ferry that crosses from Holyhead to Ireland.

    Fully quipped

    All of our stays this year have been wonderful. The cottages are fully equipped giving a sense of home-from-home feel and are spotlessly clean. Thank you. The welcome card, flowers and drinks tray were a lovely greeting. We particularly enjoyed having an open fire and the family games available.
