  • "Just returned from a stay here with family (5adults and 2children) and the house is beautiful."

    It’s well decorated and lots of lovely pieces of furniture add to the overall comfortable feel of the property. The beds are very comfortable and the fields and outlook are really pleasant. A few things to mention, it states there’s an open fire but we were only left 3 logs for 3 nights, no matches and logs locally were £12. Had I known that these were not provided I would have brought my own which are cheaper where I live. I didn’t find a hairdryer so take your own and the car charger is not free- the listing doesn’t make this clear. Seating in the living room only seats 7 so if you do arrive with 11 guests as it accommodates, you won’t all fit into the living space with the TV but plenty of seating elsewhere in the house. I’d read a few reviews about the oven, I found it easy enough to use and the hob was great but I do think you’d struggle to cook a roast dinner for example with limited roasting dishes and it did take longer to cook than my fan oven at home so maybe could do with an upgrade soon. I took a lasagne I’d made at home and 30 mins later was still cold in the middle on 180 so it does take longer than you’d expect. We visited the beach, found a public footpath from Traeth to Red Wharf Bay which was an easy walk even for the kids (5 & 3) but pleasant and we had good weather. We also visited the local nature reserve which is great for younger visitors. Despite the smaller issues, it did not affect our stay as a family and we enjoyed the area and the overall comfort of the house.

    We are delighted that you enjoyed the house. We are glad to hear that you appreciated all our efforts to provide guests with the most comfortable beds, nice furniture and interiors, children's areas, gardens, etc. We are of course concerned with any issues you may have had and will always attempt to put these right. However, regarding the logs left for the fire, it is logistically impossible to provide every family with enough logs for every day of the stay, how can we anticipate the number of logs a family might use? We have a clear explanation on the page in the house that the logs there are just to get you started and then you should get your own log supply according to your own needs. Similarly with the hairdryer, holiday homes are self catering accommodations, not hotels. We had to comply with a list of provisions given to us by our agents Menai including everything we have to supply and the hairdryer was not part of that list. Concerning the seating in the lounge, nobody has mentioned it in the last 2 years and we do show clear photos of this room on the web page, we have managed to fit the maximum number of seats into the room that the space allowed. There are as you say some other areas for sitting with lots of chairs and accent chairs dotted around the house and these can always be moved into the lounge by our guests if the need arises. There is also a second TV in another room which allows to split channel preferences by different age groups and rooms at the time. Regarding the car charger, it does say clearly on our Menai web page that there is a small charge for its use which just covers the cost of using it. We think this is quite reasonable and follows the advice we were given when we set the charger up. There are very few houses that have gone to the trouble of fitting one of these. Glad you found the oven easy, we have resisted putting in a more sophisticated oven as it just adds complications for our guests when they try to use it. Most important of course we are glad you had a good time and that you all enjoyed your visit. We would love to welcome you again. Property Owner

  • "On the whole it was good value for money, but there were a few things that could have been better."

    1. We had problems with the cooker. Every time we used the oven we found we had to reset the timer which was really fiddly.2. There were not enough cushions to get comfortable on the sofa especially if you don't have long legs. 3.we thought the television was small and really difficult to programme. 4.Felt very exposed at night because there were no curtains in the kitchen. We loved the house and its features , the beds were very comfortable and the garden was was great for the grand children. The games shed was a real success with all of us. In all we had a great holiday and would book with you again.

    We delighted to hear that you would be happy to book with us again, we are looking forward to see you again. There are loads of extra cushions in the conservatory and you welcome to use them anywhere. The cooker timer can be fiddly but there are instructions in the house guide book. The TV is a 43 inch Samsung, the size was recommended by the professional designer to suit the distance to the viewing point. All modern TV's are similarly complicated to use. But again instructions are in the house guide book. As for the curtains in the kitchen windows, the only living creatures on that side of the house are the two horses in the next huge field, I hope they were not too embarrassed... Property Owner

  • "Beautiful and spacious property."

    Beautiful garden and views. Plenty of parking space. Seating in kitchen dining area could be more comfortable as we used the living room as an extra bedroom so another sofa would have been welcome. Shower in downstairs bathroom needs some attention. Extremely comfortable beds. Well placed for beach and local walks.

    Very glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the info re the shower. We have been over to the house ourselves and changed the shower hose and everything is now working fine. The sofa-bed is designed to be turned back into a sofa during the day time with very little effort. Its a simple mechanism and the wicker hamper is provided to store the bedding. The lounge then has plenty of seating space for a large family, as well as the conservatory that has plenty of extra sofas and chairs. The photos and explanations on the website do illustrate very clearly all the seating areas around the house The beaches nearby are exceptional and there are lots of lovely walks we absolutely agree.. We look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful and spacious cottage in an excellent location."

    From the moment we stepped in, we felt at home. Clean and well equipped with wonderful views, loved the little touches and attention to detail. Plenty of parking space for a joint family trip. The multiple twin-bedrooms were a huge positive as these can be hard to find. All too often only large beds to sleep two whereas our older /adult children naturally wanted a single bed each. These twin beds are versatile and can be joined for those who prefer one king size. Two beaches are in walking distance (Benllech and Red Wharf) with a third (Traerddur Bay) a drive away. All were wonderful. Beaumaris is only ten minutes away, a quaint little town with a castle and wonderful views, a really lovely place to visit. Ribride was also a short distance away and a must do. There are multiple tours with excellent skippers full of knowledge about the area along with its history. We did day trips from the cottage to Mt Snowdon as well as Aber and Swallow waterfalls. We also went to Zip World. This place was perfect for our extended family’s needs offering a suitable location for our multiple interests whether a quiet stroll on the beach or more strenuous hikes/mountain biking and other activities. It was possible to fit so much in one day and returning home to a comfortable cottage was perfect. The property management company and the owners are extremely helpful and caring. Have already recommended this cottage to friends.

    Thank you for your kind and generous feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed our house so much. Its true the area has a great deal to offer. Snowdonia and Anglesey are both very beautiful. In particular the beaches are unspoilt and very attractive, and certainly not over-crowded. We have done the rib ride with grand-children and absolutely agree its an exhilarating trip. Do come again soon. Property Owner

  • "A lovely spacious house."

    Numerous sightings of the red squirrels at the feeding station which was an unexpected bonus. There was plenty of space for young children to play and all their toys. Very good quality fixtures and fittings. Parked 4 cars easily. A good position for visiting various attractions in the area. Can recommend the Puffin Island boat trip from Beaumaris - seals, porpoises and puffins. Overall we had a great week at Neuadd-wen. This was an extended family holiday and we needed 4 double bedrooms which was one of the attractions of this property. The listing for the bedrooms is a little misleading as they are not zip and link single beds although the bases do link together but no alternative bedding is available. Also it is not really a walk away from the beach with young children and all the associated paraphernalia - but there are 2 good car parks by Benllech beach. Can recommend this property

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We are very pleased that you and all your group had a lovely time and enjoyed what Neuadd Wen could offer. Regarding the beds, all our single beds in double rooms can be linked together by the guest. These beds are prepared and premade with single bedding, as a standard arrangement to provide the maximum versatility. However, these beds could be pulled together and linked in a fixed position if guests wish to do so turning them into super king-size beds. The bedding provided however stays the same. So, each user of the bed enjoys his own duvet. The nearest beach is Red Wharf Bay beach and is a short 18-minute walk away and we do mention that in the description. Whilst perhaps with little children and all the associated paraphernalia its more convenient to take the short 5-minute drive to Benllech beach with 2 good car parks and spaces always available. Both beaches are very beautiful. We hope to see you again soon . Property Owner

    Unfortunately the house opens out on to a very busy main road and although the speed limit is 40mph very few drivers observe this To the right is a blind bend and although the mirror opposite is a godsend , pulling can be hazardous.

    Perfect for a large family gathering, particularly for children with the added extras of a climbing wall, swing and slides, views of horses in the field. Loved the fact that we were left food for the red squirrels which some of the group were lucky to see and a stones throw from beautiful Benllech beach and red dwarf Bay and close to other great attractions. Couldn't fault the comfort and cleanliness. Thank you

  • "A beautiful, immaculate house within well kept gardens."

    From the moment we walked through the door, we felt at home. The children’s play area was a great addition and the family watching for the red squirrels (which turn up every day) adds to the excitement. There are sea views from the front windows and views of snowdonia from the back. If it’s a clear day you can find yourself lost in the kitchen, bewitched by their sheer majesty! Benllech has everything that you need for a holiday, small supermarkets, pubs, an amazing chippy, great ice cream parlour, local sea food.. it’s a fantastic location. The bay itself is dramatic; the beach clean and enormous. Beaumaris is just 10 mins away if you fancy a quaint seaside town, worth booking the more popular restaurants. Bangor is not much further if you need anything from a city (including a huge Tesco). Anyway, back to the house: All the fixtures and fittings were a very high standard, huge fridge, dining table, well stocked kitchen, nice conservatory, good furniture, games room in the garden, beds all very comfy (they pull together to make king size). The road is quite loud so maybe bring some ear plugs if you’re a light sleeper or get up and enjoy everything that the island has to offer! Thank you for the most amazing, relaxing stay!

    We are delighted you found the house so enjoyable and comfortable. We also love the area its beautiful and unspoilt. So glad you had a great time, do come again. We and the squirrels will be pleased to see you. Property Owner

The property

This spacious, detached holiday house, in a typical Arts and Crafts style is located in Benllech, on the exquisite Isle of Anglesey, near the village centre and some beautiful beaches. Built in 1910 with spectacular views across the valley towards the mountains of Eryri (Snowdonia) and down over the Benllech beach plus a very large country garden.

The house has recently been carefully restored. With parking for five cars, a Rolec car charger and access to all the attractions scattered throughout the Isle of Anglesey and its Coastal Path, Neuadd Wen is a great location for a large group of up to 11 guests. Enjoy North Wales at its best, with a large country garden bordered by a forest inhabited by red squirrels. After a day of appreciating the sights relax in the sitting room, sink into two beautiful couches by a wood-burning fireplace and a Freeview TV with internet link and all the apps you will ever need. The kitchen will suit any amateur chef, fully equipped and with its own views across the valley. There is an excellent local butcher in Benllech and a sea food shop, opens seasonally only. The dining room is separate and offers a spacious solid oak table for up to 12 people. The conservatory looks out over the valley and offers a peaceful haven to read or play some board games. The utility room is very well equipped with a new washing machine and tumble dryer. All the bedrooms are superbly furnished, good sizes and nicely proportioned.

One bedroom is located downstairs and includes twin beds that can be pushed together to make a super-king-size which suits guests with limited mobility. The 4-seater sofa in the lounge converts simply to a very high quality bed settee with a pocket sprung double mattress, creating total sleeping spaces for up to 11 people.

There is a ground floor bathroom with an option of bath or shower.

Upstairs, there is a king-size room with TV, two twin rooms with beds that can be pushed together to make super-king size, plus a charming single, and a beautiful shower room.

In the enclosed country garden, approximately half an acre, there is a full-sized children's play set for the younger children of the party.

Plus, a generous 12-seater picnic table with parasol to enjoy a full alfresco experience.

There is also a good-sized garden room, so whatever the weather you can enjoy its football table and professional darts board, or if the weather is good enough use the extra garden furniture and beach toys stored in there. When the weather permits, Traeth Benllech and Red Wharf Bay, two lovely beaches are only a short distance away, great for a day of playing in the sand, enjoying a good book, and getting a tan.

Red Wharf Bay is a charming 18-minute walk from the house. Also recommended for kids is the nearby Pili Palas Nature World, with all sorts of animals and a petting corner. The Storws Wen Golf Club is nearby, a challenging 9-hole course, will entertain the keen putters in your group. If you don't fancy cooking, take the company to one of the local restaurants or bars, which cater to a wide range of tastes.

Try the best food pub in Wales, the Bull in Beaumaris. Then there is the family friendly Ship Pub in Red Wharf Bay reputedly the best fish and chips on the island.

Explore the ruins of The Lligwy Cromlech, Capel Lligwy, Din Lligwy, and the Old Fishermen's Cottages at Moelfre.

Visit Beaumaris, a prosperous seaside town with a charming high-street, a fabulous 12th century castle, 17th century Courthouse and Gaol, and a delightful pier suitable for crab fishing. If speed and excitement is for you, try a fast motorized rib ride with the family from Beaumaris.

Bound to wake up the sleepiest holiday makers.
