  • “We loved the cottage and it was lovely and clean and well cared for.”

    Our issue was the comfort, in wanting the cottage to sleep four when it’s really only big enough for two, this means the sofa is a sofa bed which is uncomfortable to sit for any time on and the chair is small. TV only very small and although has free view there are no apps so you can not log into own Netflix etc.. using WiFi. If weather is good this isn’t a problem but on wet days it’s nice to get comfy and relax ...

    Our issue was the comfort, in wanting the cottage to sleep four when it’s really only big enough for two, this means the sofa is a sofa bed which is uncomfortable to sit for any time on and the chair is small. TV only very small and although has free view there are no apps so you can not log into own Netflix etc.. using WiFi. If weather is good this isn’t a problem but on wet days it’s nice to get comfy and relax. We would return again and again if the lounge was more comfortable a large sofa and bigger more modern TV ( I don’t mean huge just big enough you don’t have to wear glasses) Some starter fuel for the wood burner would have been nice as this is a feature of the cottage.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I will clarify on the advert that while four adults are of course welcome, people may find the sofa bed more suitable for teenagers/children. I am looking at replacing the TV very soon and although the sofa size is as per the advert and we regrettably had to put upgrades on hold throughout the lockdown period, I can now also look at the style of the sofa bed and if that needs upgrading. There is a fuel starter pack in the lounge and I am sorry if you were not aware of its location. Thank you again for your feedback as I am more than happy to take constructive comments on board to ensure the best experience for guests. Property Owner

The property

A charming end-of-terrace cottage resting in the heart of Brynsiencyn, Menai Cottage is a snug bolthole for two to four on the magnificent Isle of Anglesey.

Offering a stylish interior along with a great location, Menai Cottage is a wonderful choice for your romantic retreat to North Wales.

Take in the pretty white-washed exterior after parking up on the roadside in the village, heading through the front enclosed patio and into the open-plan living and dining room.

Spend quiet evenings snuggled on the sofa with your other half streaming the latest release on the Smart TV, while the fire in the multi-fuel stove crackles away in the background.

There is also a sofa bed in the lounge and while 4 adults are welcome at the property, guests may find the sofa bed more suitable for children or teenagers.

A dining table and chairs is the perfect spot for a meal for two, with the kitchen in the next room boasting all you need for a self-catered stay, including an electric oven and ceramic hob, fridge and a microwave, so you can rustle up a delicious dish.

Also at hand is a washing machine, convenient for those longer stays allowing you to pack light, while the ground floor is completed by the shower room here too, offering the best way to begin the day with an invigorating rinse.

Make use of the pretty rear courtyard in the summer months, great for alfresco dining with your canine companion at your side.

When you’re ready to retire for the day, head back through underfloor heated ground floor and up the stairs to the mezzanine first floor, here you’ll find the wonderful bedroom with a roomy king-size bed, enjoying quaint and fresh décor, with a lovely dressing table and plenty of storage for your things.

North Wales’ jewel in the crown, Anglesey makes a fabulous choice for a relaxing break, with the village of Brynsiencyn boasting stunning views over the Menai Strait over to Caernarfon and the Snowdonia mountains in the distance, with the village being home to a pub, shop, Post Office and a takeaway, it has everything you need.

For a fascinating day out visit the Anglesey Sea Zoo where you can see conservation in action, a shark pool and exciting diving displays, with a café to stop in too for an afternoon treat as well as Halen Mon.

Delight in meeting some new four-legged friends at Foel Farm Park, a lovely home to a host of farm animals and fun-filled activities like tractor rides, feeding animals, and even a chocolate shop!

For a day on the beach head west to Newborough Beach, a long sandy stretch enjoying views out to Snowdonia, as well as being backed by the scenic Newborough Forest where several marked walking and cycling trails can be enjoyed.

A day trip to Beaumaris is a must with a wealth of history to be discovered at Beaumaris Gaol, The Old Courthouse Museum, and Beaumaris Castle, while adventures can be had on board a Seacoast Safari taking you to Puffin Island to wildlife watch the many seabirds and do some seal-spotting too!

Bunker down at Menai Cottage to enjoy a romantic retreat to Anglesey.
