  • "Cottage was chosen because near Pt Lynas (for dolphin watching) and dog friendly."

    We were very comfortable in Glan Aber Cottage - a red squirrel visiting garden a delight - and our dog loved all the outside space and got used to visits by the horses. Val the owner was friendly and helpful. The cottage is near the coastal path and in a very peaceful, quiet place.

  • "Great to have comfortable outdoor furniture at Glan Aber for both lounging and dining, at other properties I have found this to be either poor or absent."

    The situation of the property is gorgeous and in a great location for getting about on the island. Magical to be able to sit and watch the red squirrels in the garden. The property has a good sized freezer which was not listed when we originally booked the property, this was a huge improvement for us.

  • "Don’t be deceived by the rather dull grey exterior."

    Inside is a well designed kitchen, spacious living room, compact attractive double bedroom, modern en suite and useful attic bedroom. The WiFi works well. Outside is a large attractive garden opening out onto the countryside, with spacious patio and plenty of garden furniture. Even red squirrels and wild rabbits! Very quiet and peaceful setting. Wonderful coastal walking and many opportunities to find orchids and many other wildflowers especially in June.

  • "Just one suggestion, maybe a drying rail could be provided , on rainy days we had nowhere to dry our wet clothes."

    Maybe instead of the dishwasher a tumble dryer could be installed. But definitely need a clothes maiden.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable cottage."

    We had a lovely welcome from Val the owner, and found everything we needed for our stay. It's a great base for touring the island and good walks locally on the coast path.

  • "Although it is a lovely cottage the bedroom is tiny and there is no drawer space apart from 2 very small bedside cabinets and the hanging rail gets in the way when you are trying to get down the side of the bed."

    I stayed there alone but had there been two of us it would have been a problem. It is not as private as I had hoped as the owner lives in the cottage next door and walks through the cottage garden to feed her horses. The owner is lovely but I would have preferred more privacy.

  • "The listing mentions no freezer but in fact there is now a large new freezer and fridge with frozen compartment."

    Val, the owner, is very welcoming and available if needed (without overpowering). A quiet, homely cottage, just ideal for the two of us and an elderly Newfoundland.

    Cottage very comfortable and really well equipped. Owner Val is a lovely person and always very helpful. The coastal path at Porth Eilian can be reached on foot from Glan Aber in around 30 or 40 minutes and then it’s up to you. Great walking, great views. Cottage described as having no freezer. Large Beko fridge / freezer now in situ. 5 minute drive to a really good Co-op in Amlwch. Why wait, book now

    Val was very helpful and friendly and made us feel at home. The cottage is very rural which suited us very well and we enjoyed watching the little white pony grazing just beyond the kitchen door. We had everything we needed for the holiday in the cottage and it is in a good position for exploring Anglesey.

    Val our landlady was a delightful person , always ready to help out if there were any problems( which there weren't) The beach and facilities were only a short drive away or accessible on foot if you preferred and were fit. . The cottage is quite small but had everything we needed

About the location


Amlwch 2 miles; Moelfre 7 miles.

A scattered, rural village situated close to the cliffs of Point Lynas and the little bay of Porth Eilian, on the beautiful north coast of Anglesey. Llaneilian stands amidst lovely countryside, which is perfect for scenic walks and cycle rides, but is perhaps best known for its lighthouse built in 1835, and its small, attractive shingle and sand beach, which is sheltered by cliffs and headland making it perfect for swimming, boating, fishing and other water sports. Just 2 miles west is the old port of Amlwch, the most northerly town in Wales, and Parys Mountain, where visitors can enjoy the Copper Mine Trail Walk amidst the old ruins of what was once the world's largest copper mine in the 18th century. Amlwch's harbour dates back to the Middle Ages and once was a thriving port. There is excellent fishing and golf nearby as well as beautiful sandy beaches and spectacular cliff top walks. Enjoy the medieval town of Beaumaris, with its 13th century moated castle, museums, excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, take a day trip into Snowdonia or visit Dublin from the nearby port of Holyhead.
