  • "A pleasant property in a lovely pat of the world."

    The two issues we had were dealt with promptly and with smiling faces. A little constructive criticism : A few pictures, perhaps from local artists would make the place feel less clinical. Leaflets detailing local attractions would be helpful. We felt patio doors leading in the main bedroom and leading out onto what is essentially a pub garden was a little odd. Brick up and replace with a window or create a defined border between the two properties. warn people that restaurants and bars are not open 7 days a week.

  • "Lovely accommodation in a great setting and a perfect base for holidaying in mixed British weather!"

    Very clean and comfortable. We loved the 'glass wall' westerly views across the headland to the sea, and the easy access to the beach and the coastal path.

  • "This is our second stay at Glan yr Afon and we have booked for next year."

    The location is superb. 100 metres to the beach and coastal path, a restaurant next door and a cafe two minutes away. The cottage is very comfortable and the view from the balcony is amazing! Glan yr Afon is an ideal base for discovering beautiful Anglesey.

  • "Great location just a few minutes walk to the beach - and the Anglesey Coastal Path."

    Panoramic glass wall the length of the living/kitchen area provides views over the sea to Holyhead. Property itself is high spec and well appointed.

  • "Just the most idyllic setting and you could not want for more welcoming people."

    The cottage is laid out beautifully with stunning views. Everything you could wish for and more. We’ve visited lots of small bays completely off the beaten track and bathed in glorious sunshine - lucky week! Comfortable beds, clean cottage and with the bay at the end of the road what more could you wish for. We will be back!

  • "We booked Glan Yr Afon mainly because of the location which was 100metres from Church Bay where I spent many Summer holidays with my family."

    The accommodation was excellent in every respect. It was warm and spotlessly clean. The view of the sea and hills from the balcony were amazing. We were a two minute walk from the coastal path and we did different walks on four days. Unfortunately we left a couple of days early as the Welsh National lockdown was due to start. We are going to book Glan Yr Afon again for early next year and can't wait to visit lovely Anglesey again. Communication with Nia the owner was also very good. She was very helpful
