  • "It was lovely and clean."

    Everything you needed was there it was like being at home. Owners were very informative. Would highly recommend for a base to see Anglesey. We enjoyed:- Sea Kayaking, South Stack Puffing sightings, Langdon's for excellent meal and cycling along NCR5 to Bangor.

    The property was clean, well presented and had everything we needed. It was nicely furnished and comfortable, without feeling either cluttered or clinical. We very much enjoyed our time here and would happily stay again.

    Everything is to a high standard. Owners lovely and quick to answer questions. Definitely coming to stay here again in the future. Child friendly property which is a big bonus for us. Daughter loved the bunk beds. Close to all amenities and a brilliant new playground at Breakwater. Excellent base to explore the Island from.

  • "Lovely clean & modern property with everything you need."

    Comfy bed & fluffy towels too! (being picky, curtains & a bathmat only 2 suggestions for improvement). Really good secure garden for dogs. Parking. Great location for walks. Breakwater Country Park (which we loved) right on your doorstep so no need to drive every day, but if you do, lovely little beaches 10-15mins away. Holyhead itself a little tired & rundown, limited ale selection in pubs (if thats your thing), but a couple of nice little cafés & plenty of supermarkets nearby if needed. Def recommend!

    Perfect get away. Could maybe add curtains in bedrooms as the light comes in around 5am and the white blinds don’t have much effect.

  • "Really lovely house, very comfortable and well equipped."

    Loved the complimentary local honey and all the beautiful bee decor! Great location as outside town, but only a few minutes walk in to Holyhead and to local walks around coast, upto the Mountain, harbourside, Breakwater Park etc. Only a short drive to other parts of Anglesey eg Penrhos Coastal Park, South Stack, Trearddur and found a lovely dog friendly pub at Rhoscolyn (White Eagle)... plus local supermarkets for supplies at nearby retail park. Only things that we thought would improve is a couple of plants to break up the square functional garden (which was great for the dog)... and hooks on bathroom/bedroom doors for robes/towels... and towel rail in cloakroom. One of the best properties we have stayed in (and there have been many) would definitely book again if opportunity arises as 5 nights wasn't long enough!

    Hello Alison, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, I will be looking into putting up some hooks on door and towel rail in downstairs cloakroom. Property Owner

    The only slight negative from us is that there was no tin opener in the kitchen (very very minor!)

  • "This is a wonderful property, so modern and clean and smart."

    It was delight to stay. The view of Holyhead Mountain is lovely. The property is much further out of the town than we expected from the listing, with just a small local shop in walking distance, but this turned out to be a good thing as it was in a much more pleasant setting, than Holyhead itself which felt quite run down and dour. Asda was just a 5 minute drive and the property proved an ideal and very comfortable base from which to explore the rest of Anglesey. We happily recommend it.

  • "The property was amazing we had a fabulous stay the only suggestions we had was a larger shower screen would be good and the fitted sheet on the double bed had lost its elasticity so came off most nights but those are very minor points and did not take away from the amazing experience we had."

    Hello Michala, many thanks for the feedback, I will look into the potential for a larger shower screen. Also, I'm sorry about the sheet issue you had and thanks for pointing this out. Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely property and we very much enjoyed our stay."

    It’s very well equipped and although in the middle of a housing scheme, it’s a quiet location. In the spirt of improvement this property would benefit from an information pack/visitor comments book. We’ve found these to be really informative about the local area and it’s also a good way to pick up recommendations for days out/places to eat from previous visitors. Also a clothes airer would also be a handy addition. Appreciated the coat pegs in the entrance porch, but these are not idea for really wet jackets. Thanks

    Hello Lesley, many thanks for the feedback, information pack/visitor's comments book is something I will do as this has come up on the previous feedback. I will also purchase a clothes airer as this is something I never thought about. Property Owner

  • "Modern, comfortable house in the quiet outskirts of Holyhead."

    Lovely walks from the house and much to see nearby. We very much appreciated the delicious honey left for us by the owners. Brilliant holiday, thank you. Just a couple of suggestions for ‘improvement’. A few guidelines such as when to put out the bins would have been useful. Also, we find visitors books helpful as they give tips on places to visit. Oh, finally, a corkscrew would have been appreciated.

    Hello Ian, many thanks for the feedback, I will put together some guidelines and also purchase a visitors' book so thanks for the suggestions. The corkscrew must have got lost so will replace. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very well provisioned and perfect for our stay."

    All mod cons there and very well positioned for where we wanted to go. We had loo roll and cleaning products which was great and not a criticism but it would have been lovely to have had a pint of milk on arrival, as we took over 9 hours to get to property and a cup of tea was much needed! Also some more info about walks and restaurants etc would have been helpful. The sat navigation could not find property. Highly Craft Talker is the what3words location. The lower road Lon Cae Serri we found on sat navigation and you just need to get to the end of that road and turn right and right again. Might be helpful to include these directions in booking details. Loved the honey, a nice touch. Enjoyed our stay thanks

Enjoying a prime position alongside the Old Harbour and close to amenities, Swn Y Nant is a wonderful pet-friendly holiday home for a group or family of five, plus their two canine companions.

Park-up on the driveway with space for two cars, before unloading your bags and stepping into your new home from home to begin your holiday.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where you can look forward to relaxing on the plush seating as you select a family favourite from the Smart TV, with the added bonus of a SONOS speaker and soundbar for a cinematic experience.

Whip up flavourful meals in the well-equipped kitchen, featuring a handy dishwasher and washing machine, ready to enjoy at the dining table for five.

If the weather is nice, why not fire up the barbecue and dine alfresco out in the rear enclosed garden, as your pooches stretch their legs?

If you fancy a memorable day trip, why not hop aboard a ferry and spend a day in Dublin?

Those seeking a leisurely walk with a difference should visit the RSPB Cymru Ynys Lawd, RSPB South Stack, where you can wander the cliff tops and spot rare species of birds and soak up the exceptional sea views.

Be sure to check out Porth Dafarch for golden sands, the excellent Holyhead Golf Club, and the wildlife rich Breakwater Country Park, where you may be able to spot the resident seals who frequent the shores!

About the location


Trearddur Bay 3 miles.

The bustling town of Holyhead rests on the North West coast of the Isle of Anglesey, the largest town on the island and perhaps known best for being the main ferry port to Ireland. Steeped in history, the town boasts the remains of Roman town walls and forts, medieval burial chambers and stone village foundations. Explore the Breakwater Country Park, a former quarry, which offers designated walks through the grounds. The park is full of interesting wildlife, most notably the seals who visit the Holyhead coast, and outlines the amazing construction of the world's longest breakwater, some 1.8 miles, which today protects the harbour. Visit the colourful marina with its yachts and tall ships, or the town's maritime museum, with its tales of 100 shipwrecks in the vicinity. Day trips to Ireland can be enjoyed easily from here, with Dublin just 90 minutes away on the fast ferry. With spectacular cliff top walks over Holyhead Mountain, golden sandy beaches at the award winning Trearddur Bay and the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park just a 20 minute drive away, this is a superb holiday location, at any time of the year.
