  • "Absolutely lovely old cottage and grounds (16 acres) cattle lowing, sheep bleating, red squirrel in the garden, plenty of places to sit and relax, walks in the grounds - shade or sun - almost took the breath away."

    Surrounding area also lovely, plenty of expansive beaches close by, even a village shop down the road. Further afield too - beaches and places to visit. Unfortunately some were closed, but most restaurants were open and had made arrangements to cope with the Covid situation.

  • "Such a lovely place ."

    The grounds are beautiful it’s fantastic for dogs. I definitely want to come back again . It was spotlessly clean . The steps up to the door were difficult for my mum who’s 86 . A hand rail would help . We both loved our stay .

    A beautiful place. Single beds are not as good as the main bed - feel all the springs.. maybe for children.

    Absolutely stunning area. Lots to see and do. Cottage close to local shop and lovely pub a short drive away. Supermarket in a village about 3-4 miles away. Nice cafe there too. Lovely people EVERYWHERE we went. Near to lovely beaches. Aberffraw Beach and estuary about 3-4 miles away. Great for little kids as lots of shallow pools. Lovely cafe there too.

    I received a lovely welcome from the owner together with flowers and Welsh cakes which were very well received. I was lucky enough to see a red squirrel and a barn owl on the premises and would highly recommend a holiday vacation there.

  • "This is a lovely cottage in a wonderful scenic location."

    The stairs leading up to the accomodation are the only downside and we had to be careful when the toddler headed for the door, however the swing in the garden was a great favourite. There's an enclosed paddock available for dog owners which is very safe. We very much enjoyed our stay at Hen Blas.

  • "A warm welcome by the owners and always at hand if we needed anything."

    a beautiful grade 2 listed building with gorgeous well kept grounds. A private paddock where you can exercise your dog. Everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. A fantastic location, not only very beautiful and tranquil but well placed for all the gorgeous blue flag beaches but also not far from the centre of Llanefgni for shops and supermarkets. An ideal place for both singles, couples and families especially if you have pets and want to share your holiday with the whole family. Would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.

  • "We spent a perfect week at this lovely cottage on Anglesey."

    The property is not far from the bridge onto the island and approached down a tree-lined drive. It’s set in beautiful, peaceful countryside, surrounded by woods and fields with grazing sheep. The cottage is accessed via a flight of outside steps and is very comfortable and spacious, with everything you need for your holiday - and perfectly snug and warm, even in December. Our dog had a great time, walking in the woods and running off his lead around the enclosed paddock area. Everywhere on Anglesey is within easy reach, just a short drive to Holyhead or Beaumaris and any of the great beaches and hiking areas. We can’t recommend this property highly enough.

    The granary is set in the most beautiful surroundings and the cottage itself is like home from home, I have never stayed anywhere that is so well equipped and comfortable. The dog area is totally fenced in and has trees and bushes which our dogs loved exploring and sniffing round without us worrying they would go too far. It was our first trip to Anglesey but we will certainly be back in the near future.

We spent a most enjoyable week exploring Anglesey with our dog, and were delighted to find that nowhere was very far from the cottage. There are plenty of dog-friendly beaches within very easy reach. The scenery and views of Snowdonia are stunningly beautiful and we should certainly like to stay there again. Many thanks for a lovely holiday.

One internal step leads up to the bedrooms with a snug twin room with 2’ 6” single beds and a pretty double bedroom, both sharing a family bathroom with bath and shower over.

Outside there is a patio table on the courtyard for guests personal use, along with access to the delightful gardens on the estate.

Henblas Estate Cottages

Malltraeth 3 miles. Two unique character cottages located in extensive grounds, comprising of mature woodland and carefully tended gardens, close to the owners’ home, on the edge of the hamlet of Llangristiolus, three miles from Malltraeth and around five miles from the popular coastal villages of Aberffraw and Newborough, on the South coast of Anglesey. These two charming cottages retain many original features dating back to the 17th century and are preserved by a Grade II* listing to ensure they are kept secure for future generations. Set around a large central courtyard and both accessed up external steps, they offer all the usual home comforts that you would expect from a quality holiday cottage. There is ample parking in the courtyard, away from the owners’ home, and you have your own private garden table at which you can sit and relax in the peace and tranquillity of the area. You are also welcome to explore the owners’ 8 acres of delightful gardens, which host a charity open weekend once a year, and woodlands with red squirrels, snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells. Within the grounds is an enclosed paddock, which provides an excellent opportunity for children to play safely and dogs to exercise in freedom. Superb sandy beaches can be reached in a short drive, and the red squirrel woodland at Newborough Forest offers some beautiful unspoilt walks with access onto Newborough Warren, where you can sit and watch wind and kite surfers skim across the bay for hours on end. In the opposite direction, the Anglesey circuit is easily reached within 15 minutes’ drive for racing enthusiasts and day spectators to enjoy the thrill of the track. Two excellent holiday homes with plenty to see and do within easy reach.

About the location

MALLTRAETH

Newborough 2 miles; Rhosneigr 8 miles.

The small village of Malltraeth lies in the south west corner of Anglesey, at the head of the long inlet formed by the Cefni Estuary and close to the popular Newborough Forest and Warren sand dunes. Malltraeth Pool and the magnificent sweep of marshes and sand dunes, which stretch south to Llanddwyn Island, are all part of a National Nature Reserve. The whole area is renowned for its birdlife and Malltraeth was once home to the famous wildlife artist Charles F Tunnicliffe. There are wonderful forest and coastal walks from the village, which has a pub, a cafe serving afternoon tea and a chip shop (also selling basic items/newspapers etc). Close by are beautiful beaches at Llanddwyn (reputedly the 4th best in Britain), Aberffraw, and Cable Bay, or head to Rhosneigr, which is renowned for its all year round watersports facilities.
