Henblas Estate Cottages
Malltraeth 3 miles. Two unique character cottages located in extensive grounds, comprising of mature woodland and carefully tended gardens, close to the owners’ home, on the edge of the hamlet of Llangristiolus, three miles from Malltraeth and around five miles from the popular coastal villages of Aberffraw and Newborough, on the South coast of Anglesey. These two charming cottages retain many original features dating back to the 17th century and are preserved by a Grade II* listing to ensure they are kept secure for future generations. Set around a large central courtyard and both accessed up external steps, they offer all the usual home comforts that you would expect from a quality holiday cottage. There is ample parking in the courtyard, away from the owners’ home, and you have your own private garden table at which you can sit and relax in the peace and tranquillity of the area. You are also welcome to explore the owners’ 8 acres of delightful gardens, which host a charity open weekend once a year, and woodlands with red squirrels, snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells. Within the grounds is an enclosed paddock, which provides an excellent opportunity for children to play safely and dogs to exercise in freedom. Superb sandy beaches can be reached in a short drive, and the red squirrel woodland at Newborough Forest offers some beautiful unspoilt walks with access onto Newborough Warren, where you can sit and watch wind and kite surfers skim across the bay for hours on end. In the opposite direction, the Anglesey circuit is easily reached within 15 minutes’ drive for racing enthusiasts and day spectators to enjoy the thrill of the track. Two excellent holiday homes with plenty to see and do within easy reach.
