  • "One point and I know it’s trivial, more than one tea towel would have been beneficial."

    Other than that Menai View was wonderful, so comfortable. Location good. I’ve stayed at many places over the years, and this has been one of the best. Owner very helpful and informative.

  • "We have just returned from a short break in Anglesey staying at Menai View."

    This is a beautiful house in a lovely setting. The owner was exceptionally helpful prior to our vist and provided all the information we required to make the most of our stay. The accommodation is spacious and clean. We would highly recommend this property to friends and family.

  • "Very pleasant location with a view over the Menai Strait."

    Some low level traffic noise from the Britannia Bridge and local train service but other than that, a tranquil location. Very poor mobile phone and 4G signal that also applies to many areas of North Wales but WhatsApp works well. Local shops are a short drive away and a Tesco Superstore is around a 10 minute drive. Facilities within the cottage are extremely good with a good sized kitchen and living/dining room. The three bedrooms are all adequately sized with the double bedroom being the smallest. Note; the twin bedroom has another room above which is occupied from next door and low level movement noise can be heard occasionally. The main entrance door to the property does need some attention as it appears to have dropped slightly making the locking/unlocking process quite hard. All in all, we would be happy to return to this property again in the future.

  • "Lovely stay at Menai View."

    The house was immaculate and well equipped and in beautiful surroundings. We had an issue with the washing machine where the previous guests had broken the handle. Thankfully this was fixed promptly when I contacted the owner which we were very appreciative off. Would definitely look to stay here again!

    The owner, Barbara, could not be more helpful. Our third time here and another lovely holiday.

  • "Fortunate to have a glorious week to spend at Menai View and were treated to spectacular views."

    The property didn’t disappoint and was perfect to access all the mountains,castles,beaches and gardens we could squeeze in. The sound from the iconic bridge was to be expected but never distracting. Would highly recommend.

  • "My sister had the small double with her husband and found it quite cramped."

    Other than that everyone was thrilled with the property. It was my 70th so we had the room with the balcony which was perfect. We loved the location, views, nearby hotel and proximity to so many attractions.

  • "Excellent cottage with first floor balcony, patio with seating and large side garden."

    The property is roomy with a large lounge and kitchen downstairs and master bedroom with en suite and two large bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor. Great views over the Menai Strait towards Snowdon and plenty of wildlife in the garden and surrounding land to provide interest. The Anglesey coast path passes the cottage. The town of Menai Bridge is around 5 mins from the property with shops and a Waitrose. Tesco in Bangor and Asda in Llangefni are also in easy reach. The property listing correctly notes that there are pylons near the property and some noise from the Britannia Bridge. Neither of these detracted from our enjoyment of the property. The property is well heated with a controllable CH system and there is a log burner. We felt completely at home during our stay and look forward to returning in the future.

  • "We were a family of five adults plus a guest looking for a midweek break."

    I had obviously seen photographs of the cottage when I booked it online but when we arrived through the electric gates and onto the driveway my family literally spent ten minutes staring at the cottage in wonder. By the time we were all inside we knew we had made the right choice. The cottage was more like an elegant mansion, very roomy with high ceilings, and yet very cosy at the same time. It was very well equipped with absolutely everything one would need for a great stay and very nicely furnished. The views from the patio area and the balcony in the main bedroom were terrific. I admit, even though in our short stay we ventured to South Stack lighthouse and Holyhead, Newborough Warren, Beaumaris and Penmon Point, the minute we left the cottage we stayed parked up in the church car park whilst we investigated the church and its grounds and the coastal walk to the statue looking out of the bay. Finally, I would like to thank Mrs Burgess for being such a good host. When arranging arrival times and picking up of the key she emphasised that if there was anything we needed during our stay we were to give her a call. However, we didn't need anything else because everything one could think of was already provided. We had a wonderful few days in a wonderful setting in a wonderful cottage and I would wish to thank Mrs Burgess for that.

    The house was comfortable, well organised and well equipped. Everyone enjoyed the views, especially from the balcony. We appreciated getting all the equipment instructions online, though we did not need them fortunately. We would love to return sometime. Thank you

  • "We love Menai View!"

    This was our second visit and we hope to be back again next year. It’s a very comfortable, spacious and well-appointed home with a wonderful terrace. Standing on the balcony with a glass of wine looking over the straits to Snowdonia is very special. The location is perfect - get to Anglesey and you’ve arrived. There is good access to the rest of the island -the main road is only a couple of minutes away and shops and other amenities close by in Menai Bridge.

  • "Hi, could not fault the interior of the property or exterior seating."

    Very comfortable and excellent facilities. Sadly proximity to the bridge made it noisy sitting outside. Views from gardens would be improved by cutting hedging and adjacent trees to see church and Menai. We loved exploring area and great for local walks and trips.

  • "Our 3rd time at Menai View and we can't wait to be there again."

    This house is wonderful and airy inside, fully equipped for the most active or lazy holiday. So much character in the place that it's just cosy to sit inside and finally relax. The views from the living room, balcony or the patio make it hard to drag yourself away- even on the most rainy day the sight over the Straits and into Snowdon are breath-taking. The grounds were enjoyed by our 2 year old who enjoyed chasing the bunnies and looking for dragons in the trees with Daddy and Mommy. Great base for exploring the Island too- a day on Newborourgh Warren is never enough! Thanks again for a wonderful holiday- we'll be talking about it until the next one!

  • "The accommodation was OK and bathrooms and bedrooms were cleaned well however some areas could benefit from a better clean."

    Lots of cobwebs on walls and down the side of units. Our biggest disappointment was the quality and comfort of the beds. The mattresses on both twin beds were very poor and you could feel the springs through them. The mattress in the double bed again was poor quality and had a foam topper on it plus this bed is obviously broken as everytime you moved in the bed it made a terrible creaking noise. The duvets on the beds were also incredibly thick which would be great for cold winter nights but not for hot summer nights, supplying thinner duvets for the summer would be better.

    Traditional but also contemporary touches. Perfect location. Private track leads straight down to the Menai Straits. Close to shops and restaurants but also feels like your miles from anywhere. Loved sitting out on the balcony enjoying the views of Brittania Bridge. The original tiled hallway and staircase are stunning. Can't recommend enough.

    The house is spacious and fully equipped with everything you may need on your holiday, we found wifi was a bit poor at the weekends and kept dropping out, but was adequate for what we needed. Nice seating and bbq area outside and plenty of room for kids to run about, gated front so nice and safe. Shops and pubs in easy reaching distance, walkable, but with young kids, drive as there is no pavement up the hill. Would stay here again as so far it has been the nicest house we have stayed at in Anglesey.

The property

A delightfully spacious cottage, forming the end part of a large house which has been converted into a number of apartments, located very close to the banks of the Menai Straits, on the outskirts of the village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll on the popular Isle of Anglesey.

This quality Anglesey cottage, which is part of the old rectory to St. Mary's and St. Tysilio churches which form part of the town's name, is situated less than one mile from the railway station at Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, down a secluded lane.

Accessed through electronic gates, the sweeping drive leads up to this large Llanfair PG cottage, which has been tastefully decorated and furnished throughout, and boasts wonderful views over the Menai Straits and towards Snowdon.

Your Anglesey holiday home offers superb living accommodation with high ceilings and mosaic tiled hallway, plus the light and airy sitting room has a cosy woodburning stove, a social dining area and patio doors that lead onto the pretty garden.

A well-equipped kitchen and three comfortable bedrooms, one benefiting from an en-suite bathroom and balcony offering stunning views along the straits, complete the accommodation at this cottage on Anglesey.

This Llanfairpwllgwyngyll cottage has ample private parking, a lawned area and patio with furniture on which you can enjoy the changing views of the sea, and a path leads down to the straits where you can barbecue in peace and quiet whilst relaxing and listening to the water lapping against the shore.

The Anglesey Coastal Path passes by this Llanfair PG cottage and opens up miles of unspoilt tracks and beaches, allowing access to Menai Bridge and the village.

This charming Llanfairpwllgwyngyll cottage is a perfect getaway for families, at any time of year.

About the location

LLANFAIRPWLLGWYNGYLL

Menai Bridge 2 miles; Beaumaris 6 miles.

Affectionately known by the locals as Llanfair PG, the Anglesey village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrnd robwllllantysiliogogogoch, also known by its shortened name of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll has the longest place name in Europe. It was artificially named back in 1860 as a publicity stunt for the railway station and translates from Welsh as "St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the fierce whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave". Situated close to the Menai Straits, just off the Britannia Bridge, Llanfair PG has much to offer families. After having your photo taken next to the village nameplate at the railway station, head into the popular visitors centre for local tourist information. A short walk past the octagonal Toll House, towards Menai Bridge, will bring you to the Marquis of Anglesey statue and column which, for a small fee, you can climb the 115 steps to the top for superb views of the countryside and coastline. Nelson’s Monument can be easily reached on the banks of the Menai Straits, passing St Mary’s Church on the way. With several good pubs with restaurants, craft and gift shops and cafes, plus the beautiful Anglesey coastline within walking distance, there is plenty to entertain you all year round.

Please note: This property does not accept weekend changeovers.
