This former farmhouse, located next to a working farm is an ideal base for exploring Anglesey, it is located just 1 mile from Cemaes Bay, a beautiful sandy beach and a village with pubs and small shops. The cottage has plenty of downstairs living space and is ideal for a two or a small family. In addition there is a an upstairs reading room with a day bed for relaxation.

The garden is unenclosed but offers a slate patio with bench seating and a table. There are fantastic views from the back garden out to sea.

A little further afield, explore even more of this unspoilt coastline along the Isle of Anglesey Coast Path or perhaps try out one of the cycle paths. This is a place to head out and get active and being an island, there are plenty of water based activities to try too. Plas Newydd, an enchanting mansion with spectacular views across to Snowdonia is well worth a visit and lies on the opposite side of the island to the cottage.

Things to see and do nearby

South Wales is a land of sweeping green valleys, rugged mountains, woodland and forests and miles of coastal paths laced with heather.

The special places we look after in Pembrokeshire include the rugged landscape and views over to Ireland from St David's Peninsula, to the nature reserve at Stackpole where otters and dragonflies nestle amongst the water reeds. Then take in the views over the Bristol Channel to Lundy and Exmoor from sun-drenched Rhossili, the highest point on the Gower peninsula.

In North Wales, the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia, with its rivers, waterfalls and the Nant Gwynant valley nestled amongst the mountains and hills, draws people back again and again, while the colourful beach huts at Llanbedrog beach and grey seal-spotting at Porthor Beach are just a few of the highlights of the very special Llyn Peninsula.

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.
