  • "We loved our week in Nyth y Fran."

    Wonderful apartment, thoughtfully presented and the views over the Menai Staights were fantastic. It was a great base to explore Anglesey from and the guides and local information provided were helpful. The Welsh treats for us and the dog treats were really thoughtful

  • "Nyth y Frân is a beautiful apartment with stunning views."

    We found it really well equipped and comfortable. Rachel, the housekeeper, had left it spotlessly clean and Kerry and Steve, the owners, were swift to respond to any queries. We enjoyed a circular coastal path walk from Bull Bay, a visit to National Trust’s Plas Newydd, the long, sandy beach at Newborough Warren and the magical Hidden Garden just down the road. All in all, Nyth y Frân is a superb base from which to explore Anglesey.

    Great comms from host Kerry to make sure everything was ready for our arrival. It was our first holiday being accompanied by two of our grandchildren. They loved the apartment, especially having their own little den in 'the crow's nest', where there were various board games etc to keep them amused in the evening before bedtime. We all had a fab time.

  • "Nyth y Fran is a delight."

    The property is very clean, bright, well-kept and the owners' provide excellent instructions with all things considered, even down to recycling being carried out by a commercial company. The property location is fabulous sitting on the Anglesey side of the Menai Strait with views across the water and out to the mountains, which are an ever changing panorama of weather, light and shade. A private garden is also available, although a tad chilly in Feb. Near by amenities are available in Menai Bridge and Beaumaris as well as further afield. Overall, we had a relaxing, enjoyable and lovely stay. highly recommended.

  • "Nyth Y Fran was a beautiful, well appointed, high end apartment."

    The finish to all the fixtures and fittings was clearly top class and it was spotlessly clean. The welcome gifts we received were not only thoughtful but delicious as well. The only thing I would ask for differently would be a bath sheet rather than a bath towel but that is really being micro picky. The views from the apartment are lovely (even though we had shocking weather). I would say that as long as the lift is working it would suit anyone of any age and mobility but if it ever broke down I think the stairs could be an issue for some older guests. The steps down to the main road and the Gazelle pub were closed off for safety reasons( understandable) so it would have been a longer walk to the pub, which going down would have been fine but coming up a different matter. If you want easy, short walking distance to pubs and shops this may not be the place for you. Menai Bridge is just 5 mins or so away in the car but a good 40 mins walk I’d guess. Beaumaris is a drive not a walk away. Loved the place and we will be returning. Thank you Kerry and Steve.

  • "This is a lovely apartment that is well-situated with great views over the Menai Straits, across to Bangor and to the peaks beyond."

    Spectacular in any weather. The apartment was very clean and tidy upon arrival but also inviting. I don't think we lacked for anything. The welcome pack of local produce was a nice touch and appreciated. The lift links all floors and there are ramps for wheelchairs at the main entrance. Both bathrooms have modern walk-in showers and are effectively wet rooms. A word of warning - the apartment is built into the roof space and not ideal for tall people as there are beams and angled ceilings wherever you go. These are marked and even bear luminescent strips. However, taller visitors should be careful. We experienced weather that included high winds and lashing rain. During this we felt comfortable and snug, appreciating the atmosphere as the wind howled and rain hammered on the windows. The bad weather barely impacted upon us whilst within the accommodation. We visited in late October, which is hardly the best time to enjoy the gardens (both general and private) but can easily recommend these amenities - when the weather cleared the views from the property are well worth descending from the apartment. The directions to the apartment were helpful and accurate. The location is very convenient for reaching both Menai Bridge and Beaumaris locally, but also for visiting Anglesey and the mainland. As recommended, we tried the Gazelle Inn/Hotel nearby: well worth the visit (well, two actually): great location, great food and ambience, and lovely staff. Not cheap, but we thought it good value. However, one word of warning: the new flight of wooden steps to and from the residence are both steep and can be very slippery in wet conditions.

    We have never stayed in an apartment before and were unsure what to expect. When we arrived we were presented with a stunning, yet beautifully quirky apartment and amazing views. The crows nest turret 'snug' is full of guide books and helpful information, the kitchen area very well equipped with one of the best washing up views ever and the other rooms are tastefully appointed and comfortable for a holiday at any time of the year. The addition of the private garden area is perfect and also provides more wonderful views across to Bangor, the sea and the iconic bridge across the Menai Straits. A small point - not really enough towels provided. A single hand towel and a medium size one each is not enough for a week's holiday and we would have expected at least one bath sheet. This apartment is a great base for days out and or to simply sit and admire the view - or both! We have used your company before and were glad to see that booking is still easy, communications excellent and pictures and descriptions accurate - many thanks.

The property

As soon as you start to descend the curving drive, passing the pretty pond, the breathtaking landscape starts to unfold.

You will be greeted with a beautiful Snowdonia mountain backdrop with Penrhyn Castle, Porth Penrhyn harbour and Bangor's Victorian pier in the foreground.

Once you approach the final corner, with gorgeous views along the Menai Strait, you will arrive at the manor house which is located in Glyngarth, between the popular towns of Menai Bridge and Beaumaris on Anglesey. The open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area is a lovely space with a view from every window.

We especially love the clever Velux balcony with fantastic views to Mount Snowdon and the Britannia suspension bridge. The main seating area has comfortable sofas and chairs, a Smart TV and telescope.

There is an additional snug area in the turret with two easy chairs and a SONOS system. The well equipped kitchen has an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine/dryer, microwave, toaster and Lavazza coffee machine.

While there is a dishwasher no one is going to object to washing up with the view from the sink!

There is a dining table and 6 chairs. There are two bedrooms.

The master room has a king size bed, TV and ensuite with a wet room with multi-function shower, loo and wash hand basin.

The twin room has two single beds and a TV. There is a further wet room with multi-function shower, stand alone bath, loo and wash hand basin. In addition to the communal gardens Nyth Y Fran had its very own relaxing private garden overlooking the Menai Straits and mountains, created for the sole use of guests.

Features of this wonderful space include a large patio, large picnic table and chairs, stand for disposable BBQ's, folding reclining chairs, portable LED lamps and a lockable storage unit for bikes and garden furniture.

A handy cool box with ice packs, BBQ tools and a picnic set are stored in the apartment's kitchen. The rolling lawns of the extensive grounds include a small orchard, pond and patio areas.

The newly built walkway and steps down to the bottom is great for a visit to the Gazelle for a spot of lunch.

There is allocated parking for two cars. Please note that within the penthouse apartment there are areas with low headroom so please be mindful if you are very tall. This apartment has been decorated and furnished to the highest standard and provides a special feeling of peace and tranquillity.

The elevated position gives exceptional panoramic views from all the main rooms.

Llanfairpwllgwyngyll 2 miles; Bangor 2.5 miles; Beaumaris 4.5 miles; Caernarfon 8 miles

This delightful town sits right on the edge of the Isle of Anglesey and is home to one of two bridges to mainland Wales. It is an ideal base for a holiday and is great for exploring this beautiful island. It has a strong history which can be discovered in the Menai Bridge Heritage Museum, the well known Saint Tysilio lived on Church Island, just off of Anglesey in the 7th century, hence the name of the 15th century St. Tysilio's Church. Menai Bridge itself offers a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. In terms of entertainment, this is an ideal spot with something for everybody, there is the butterfly palace 'Pili Palas' which is incredibly popular with families, as well as the astounding Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens well worth a walk around.
