  • "What a fabulous cottage!"

    Perfectly equipped, perfectly positioned and perfect communication from Liz the owner. Beautifully clean throughout, lots of extras..well-stocked bookshelves and games cupboard. Lots of kitchen basics, oil, seasonings, washing up liquid etc. Fabulous walks in either direction along the coast path, great for seal and dolphin watching. We had a mixed bag of weather, loved watching the waves crash over the rocks whilst cosy and warm in the cottage sitting in the window seat. (My favourite spot)We did a great walk along the coast path to Porth Wen and back, just stunning. It took an hour and half each way.. with lots of stopping to admire the views and listen to the silence. You won't regret staying here any time of year.

    Thank you Jan, for ALL your wonderful comments. We hope you'll come back again soon. Best wishes Liz & family Property Owner

    Dear Edna, I'm so pleased to hear you ALL had a wonderful time... Please do come back when the weather picks up.. You may even get to see the dolphins and seals in the bay. Take care Edna. Best wishes from Liz & family Property Owner

    Very comfy, well equipped, thoughtful touches - beyond any other cottages we have stayed in. Area a delight as the sheltered bay and surrounding walks were literally accessible from the door. Highly recommended.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I'd also like to say, all your points ref the lights in the kitchen are now being looked in to. It was lovely to chat with you both. We hope you will come back soon. Property Owner

Only downside was that we couldn't adjust the shower temperature which was too hot for us, but at least it wasn't too cold and there was a bath. We will book again :)

The property

The Old Post Office is a delightful end of terrace cottage in a slightly elevated position in a stunning beachfront location, in the pretty village of Bull Bay on the Isle of Anglesey.

This lovely cottage enjoys fantastic uninterrupted sea views over the bay and rocky inlets and is perfect for couples, friends and families, where you'll feel immediately at home.

The accommodation is set over three levels, with the spacious sitting room boasting a modest dining area with banquette seating around the table and a picture window framing those fantastic views.

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast or late supper and you'll be able to enjoy the ever changing vista and perhaps spot the odd dolphin if you're lucky.

The three bedrooms provide good family accommodation; wake up in the morning and no matter what the weather you'll be able to enjoy the wonderful views of the bay and sea from the double and twin rooms.

Outside this lovely cottage is an enclosed front patio area enjoying a sunny aspect, an ideal place to relax with a glass of something after a busy day on the beach, exploring one of the many coves, or walking one of the many walks on the renowned Anglesey Coastal Path which is right next to the cottage.

Follow the sun around to the rear paved terraced garden in the evening, or why not venture out to the hotel with bar, serving food in the village so you don't have to worry about planning any meals?

This little cove, which is also known as Porth Llechog (sheltered bay) to the locals is overlooked by the town of Amlwch, plenty of facilities close at hand.

Luckily for you , Bull Bay is entirely dog friendly , which means your dogs are allowed to run and play on the sands/pebbles at any time of year.

There are also plenty of activities that you can take part in, don't forget to bring your snorkel, wet suit, to dive of the rocks or walk through the rock pools and the opportunities for fishing are plentiful in and around the bay.

If you fancy launching your small boat, dingy, rib, or going kayaking, from Bull Bay , there is no launch charge.

An 18-hole golf course is just a short walk away, and the cottage is well placed for visiting the attractions of Anglesey, including Beaumaris, NT Plas Newydd and the watersports centre of Rhosneigr.

Head back to the mainland and spend a day in the mountains of Snowdonia, or hop onto a ferry at Holyhead for a day trip to Dublin.

This cottage is sure to delight and is an ideal base all year round for a relaxing holiday in an amazing coastal location.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location

BULL BAY

Amlwch 1.5 miles.

Bull Bay, or Porth Llechog in Welsh, which means "sheltered bay", is a picturesque seaside village on the northern coast of the Isle of Anglesey. It is the most northerly village in Wales, and boasts wonderful coastal scenery, with the island of East Mouse lying within the bay, which is rocky, shingly and offers rockpools for shrimping and crabbing. The village has a hotel with restaurant and bar, an excellent golf course, wonderful scenic walks along the renowned Anglesey Coastal Path and exciting fishing and bird watching. 1.5 miles east is the old port of Amlwch, 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. Enjoy the medieval town of Beaumaris, with its 13th century moated castle, museums, excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, a sea zoo, Plas Newydd mansion, or take a day trip into Snowdonia, or visit Dublin from the nearby port of Holyhead.
