  • "We had a lovely time at this cottage very clean and comfortable a great base for exploring the Island."

  • "Angelsey is beautiful and cottage well placed for seeing the whole island."

    Accommodation was OK but directions not brilliant as the told to turn left at graveyard which cannot be seen from road. No welcome pack not even a pint of milk. Very disappointed as both description and pictures show an enclosed private garden however there are open steps which lead up to parking area and then down to quite a busy road. I have a 14 year old rescue dog so was only able to take her out in garden on a lead which is really not ideal. I look very carefully at desc. and pics so was extremely displeased by this.

  • "Had a wonderful holiday."

    The cottage is amazing. Bethan and Paul are on hand with advice about the area too. The only thing I would say is the seating ,although very comfortable is extremely low . So v difficult for anyone with disabilities. The cottage is quite remote so a car is essential. The views are wonderful because of this though. Loved watching the wildlife. Thankyou for a great stay x

    Nicely situated for access to the whole of the Island. Would definitely recommend Bodfan Peniel and would also stay there again.

  • "This is our second stay here."

    The owners live across from the cottage and on hand if needed. This location is pretty central and gives you the opportunity to explore all of Anglesey. The cottage has everything you need for a self catering holiday. Would recommend a trip to Llanddonna and also the Gaerwen Arms!

  • "Overall, Bodfan Peniel was a lovely cottage, ideally placed in the centre of the island making journeys to every coast easy and equidistant."

    It is located in a quiet rural spot with lovely views of the surrounding countryside, and a peaceful place to return after a day out exploring. The cottage has been tastefully updated, but could do with some coffee tables for drinks and playing games in the lounge and the rear sitting room, and some lamps for more subtle evening lighting while watching TV. The owners were very helpful and friendly, however, they didn't like us charging our EV using the extension lead (which had a thermal cut-out and was perfectly safe and an acceptable means of charging a vehicle via a 3-pin trickle charge), and on leaving, was looking to levy a surcharge, despite us advising that to top-up an electric car by 20 miles (our daily use) was probably about £2 worth of electric. No different to using the TV, running the washing machine, charging laptops etc. Given we'd paid near £1k for our week (which should more than cover our water and utilities during our stay,) this felt like a kick in the teeth. Eventually, more visitors will be arriving at Bodfan Peniel in electric cars, and the owners need to embrace this and be more accommodating. Took the shine off a great week.

    The layout of the cottage provides plenty of space and the pictures do not do it justice ,in my opinion . Its central location on Anglesey makes it ideal for exploring the island and journeys onto the mainland, nothing seems too far away .We cannot express how pleased we are that we found this gem of a cottage ,it made our break away perfect .On a final note i would just like to thank both owners for their attention and care we received ,they were both brilliant and nothing was too much trouble even bringing us extra logs for the fire .Will definitely be re booking

  • "Overall very good."

    Not the owners fault but property difficult to find, the entrance because of building work,looked like a tip. Would have been useful to say that there is a place/road sign just before the windmill which says COEDONA. When approaching from LL medd. Bethans son kindly came and waved us in. Bethan very helpful,everything spotless.

  • "The website doesn't do the cottage justice."

    The views from the garden are over farmland to a windmill and the views from the bedrooms are to Snowdonia. The cottage is in a tiny hamlet of homes and is therefore wonderfully quiet. However just a short car journey takes you to lots of villages, beaches and towns. The cottage was clean and the owners had thoughtfully left added cleaning products. There was a welcome pack which we were not expecting.

    Nice quiet location, owners very pleasant and welcoming. Slight downside was no internet connection and weak phone signal. That aside we had a brilliant time, the weather was perfect, the beaches are amazing as are the views over to North Wales. Coastal paths are stunning and journeys to visit places are short. Well worth booking a trip.

  • "Very nice cottage - however, would value from additional crockery / cutlery otherwise have to run the dishwasher half empty."

    Wi-fi whilst listed as for email, was very unreliable. Lighting in the lounge was poor - making it difficult to read. Small points but took the edge off the stay.

  • "A bit isolated in location and no real signage to help to find it off the road."

    Cottage was clean and modern. Would benefit from a shelf in the downstairs bathroom, an occasional table in the lounge area to use for drinks and newspapers etc, owners were great and their doggy Ned was a welcome visitor. Would recommend this cottage to couples as there is no real playing area for kids. Loved Anglesey and bennlech beach was brilliant as it was a safe water area, shallow for a long way out.

    And then snuggling in front of a the wood burner in the evenings- bliss! It was a pity that the garden wasn't fully enclosed.

The property

This outstanding end-terrace cottage is located at the end of a short, quiet lane in the small hamlet of Peniel, just a short walk from the central Anglesey village of Llanerchymedd.

Situated just three miles from the popular beauty spot of Llyn Alaw reservoir, this delightful Welsh cottage has been lovingly renovated and extended to provide the perfect base for exploring all the coastline of Anglesey.

Guests enter into a charming open plan living area, with welcoming dining area for family meals right next to the well-equipped and modern kitchen and a cosy snug seating area around an atmospheric woodburner.

Two internal steps lead up to a spacious utility room and ground floor bathroom with stylish freestanding bath and corner quadrant shower, with a door leading through into a superb main sitting room with comfy seating, along with oak flooring, gabled ceiling and patio doors looking out onto the enclosed lawned garden.

Upstairs there are two pretty bedrooms, one styled with twin beds, and also a double bedroom which enjoys views towards Snowdonia from its dormer windows and has an en-suite shower room.

Wander into the garden where you can sit and relax, dining alfresco using the barbecue or enjoying a relaxing drink and gazing over the fields, though you may find the occasional chicken roaming through the garden to join you.

The inland village of Llanerchymedd offers all you would expect from a thriving village with a pub, cafe, mini-market, take-away, laundrette and regular bus service, whilst the coast can be reached within 15 minutes, with Benllech on the east coast or Rhosneigr on the south side of the island.

With many good walks and cycle routes close by, this lovely cottage has something for everyone.

About the location


Moelfre 7 miles; Benllech 7 miles; Snowdonia 25 miles.

Benllech and Moelfre, on the east coast are 7 miles away; Snowdonia 25 miles.
The former market town of Llanerchymedd is located in the heart of picturesque Anglesey, providing a gateway to the superb beaches around the coastline. Llanerchymedd was once home to a thriving cobblers’ industry with over 250 shoemakers in the town and numerous corn mills to provide food for the cobblers and also to supply the traders at the market. The village now offers a smaller community feeling, with two village pubs and the old station cafe serving food, a small village shop, chip shop and launderette, which should provide for most of your daily needs. The freshwater reservoirs of Llyn Cefni and Llyn Alaw offer an attractive circular walk and numerous country paths. Closeby is Mynydd Bodafon Mountain, a picturesque beauty spot to enjoy picnics and walks. Moelfre and Benllech are the nearest coastal villages on the east coast. Moelfre is a delightful fishing village, boasting little cottages, a picturesque pebbled beach, a working lifeboat station and two quality pubs and restaurants. There are stunning sandy beaches nearby at Benllech, Lligwy and the lovely Red Wharf Bay, with its miles of open sands and birdlife. Within these areas there are many eateries for you to choose from. A perfect location for travelling around this lovely island and throughout beautiful Snowdonia.
