    “The location of the cottage is wonderful and the views incredible.”

    The house itself is spacious and welcoming. The big kitchen windows with views kitchen and the log burner were a treat and really enhanced our experience here.....morning coffee gazing over the straits and evening drinks cosied by the fire. ...

    The house itself is spacious and welcoming. The big kitchen windows with views kitchen and the log burner were a treat and really enhanced our experience here.....morning coffee gazing over the straits and evening drinks cosied by the fire. Whilst we didn’t watch much tv, it would be good to have one in the main living room so you can watch a film curled up by the fire. As the area is wonderful for walks and the garden is fenced well to keep our sheep, it would be great if one small well-behaved dog was allowed to visit and enjoy the walks. We loved Barracks Cottage and can’t wait to return. The history behind its renovation makes it all the more special - as does the 1 mile walk to Penmon Point for beach, Puffin Island and an ice cream! Thank you.

The property

This is a delightful holiday cottage located in a stunning position.

Overlooking Penmon Priory in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Barracks Cottages has impressive views towards Snowdonia and across the Menai Strait.

To have both the mountains and sea in sight will be hard view to top in any other holiday cottage! The renovation with all the modern comforts makes this an excellent holiday cottage to stay in.

With a modern kitchen that you can watch the sunrise over the mountains in the morning, there is ample dining space in the same room for the evening time.

Through to the sitting room with three large sofas around a wood burning stove, it’s the perfect place to kick back and relax after a day out.

There is also a second dining table in the sitting room.

There is a small snug at the end of the house with a TV to hide away after a long meal in the kitchen.

On the ground floor there is a cloakroom with loo & wash basin. Upstairs are four bedrooms all together.

The first is a double room with king size bed and ensuite.

The ensuite to the double room has a shower, loo and wash hand basin.

There is also a further double bedroom and a twin bedroom.

Lastly, there’s a twin room with an ensuite which has a shower loo and wash hand basin. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over, loo and wash basin. Outside is a generous garden which is mainly lawn with ample parking for 6+ cars.

There is short rough track to drive to the cottage.

You can walk the Anglesey Coastal Footpath past the Priory up to Blackrock Point, make sure you look out for Penmon lighthouse and Puffin Island.

There is also a pebble beach with a local cafe serving all the delights you need to keep you happy.

Beaumaris is a 10 minute drive away, and has a selection of independent shops, bars, restaurants and galleries as well as Beaumaris castle.

A village that’s a must to visit.

Barrack’s Cottage is located in a position with stunning views, plenty of fabulous walks and a short drive to a bustling town.

The owner has brought Barrack’s Cottage back from a ruined Quarryman’s Barracks to how you see it today.

Even the detail of the bell tower being restored from the stone at Penmon Quarry is a delight to see.

We think it was used to que dinner time or chime for the end of shift.

About the location


Llangoed 1 miles; Beaumaris 3 miles.

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the south-eastern corner of the Isle of Anglesey, Penmon looks out across the Menai Strait towards the magnificent mountains of Snowdonia. Close by is Puffin Island, where puffins do indeed nest. They, as well as seals and porpoises and many other water fowl can be viewed from a boat trip starting from Beaumaris. Heritage lovers will enjoy discovering the historic Penmon Priory, a 13th Century Augustinian House complete with its original holy well and curious dovecote. At Black Point, near the lighthouse, the Pilot House Cafe serves coffe, teas, lunches and ice creams. Nearby White Beach is a large pebble cove and the coastal path winds via a nature reserve and scenic cliff path all the way to the open sands of Red Wharf Bay. The village of Llangoed has a shop with Post Office counter. Picturesque Beaumaris has a 13th Century moated castle, a pier, small independent shops, a gallery, exhibitions and a wide choice of bars, cafes and restaurants.
