  • "Absolutely brilliant stay, such a comfortable cosy cottage in a wonderful location!"

    The cottage is really close to Beaumaris, with a lovely village pub on the doorstep. The huge, beautiful beach is a short car ride away (wouldn't recommend walking as the roads are very narrow and steep). The cottage is super cosy with everything and more that you need. The photos don't show the conservatory/sun room much , we found this a perfect place to enjoy our morning coffee. Kate and Bari are simply the perfect hosts and we couldn't recommend this place highly enough whether you're a couple or a family. We'll we back very soon!

    Set in a beautiful location with the beach only 5 minutes away. From the moment we walked in it felt like home and the welcome pack was great. Had a lovely long weekend can not wait to go back hopefully for longer next time.

  • "Absolutely loved it here!"

    The owners had thought of all the lovely little details from toilet paper and essentials to a really wonderful home baked welsh bread, milk and eggs etc which helped us on our first few days to settle and enjoy the first cup of tea at a wonderful relaxed cottage. The location of the cottage is brilliant, not far from the beautiful blue flag beach, 3 miles from Beaumaris and not far at all from Caernarfon Castle which was truly amazing. Will definitely return.

  • "Stayed last year and it was an amazing stay again this year."

    The comfort of the house was amazing and the space we had was wide and enough room to get around. The conservatory was nice and warm as had lovely visits by the owners. We were greeted with fresh eggs, bara brith, butter and milk. We woke up fresh in the morning to birds tweeting and a beautiful sun on most days. There were amazing places to walk, there was a tractor show, and lots of beaches, overall it was amazing and would recommend to stay. Libby Lewis, age 10

    The pictures do not do enough justice to this cottage. It is comfortable, clean and spacious and just a mile away from the beach which made for a real calming and enjoyable getaway for us.

  • "Wonderful well-equipped spacious cottage!"

    The owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. A great place to be whatever the weather. The local beach is beautiful- it’s about a 20/25min walk down a steep hill- but worth it if you’re up for the challenge or there’s a carpark at the bottom. Anglessey is a beautiful place, with plenty of places to explore nearby- highlights for us being Menai RIB trip, South Stacks and Conwy castle.

  • "We both loved our time at Simdda Wen Cottage."

    We celebrated our 30th anniversary here and we're blessed with a full day of beautiful weather just for that day. The weather was as expected for the time of year, wet & windy, with occasional sunshine. The cottage is beautiful and has that really home from home feeling. It is very well equipped. The kitchen is beautiful and has an electric fan oven which both the hubby and I loved. The shower water pressure is great We didn't use the bath as we both loved the shower. If you do go here for a break there are shops just down the road at Llangefni, Home bargains, lidl, aldi. Asda and a B&M We bought our wood/kindling etc from home bargains. The pub in Llanddona is nice, however it's cold in there so wrap up warm. The cottage hosts are both lovely, approachable and they're in no way intrusive. Nothing was a bother for them. The flowers and welcome pack were a lovely touch even included a home made Bara Brith which was gorgeous. (it's worth staying here just for that.. It was that good!) If you're looking for a peaceful retreat this is the perfect place, Anglesey is beautiful and close enough to visit Snowdonia an various other in north wales. If you get the chance check out Beaumaris it is beautiful and the castle is worth a trip too. Newborough is worth a visit it is particularly picturesque... Most of Anglesey is pretty, the only place we didn't enjoy was Holyhead... Be sure to check out Llanddona beach and there are two roads to it, locals use one to drive down and the other to drive up to the beach. There's a cafe down there too. There are lots of lovely beaches and coves, some of which are only accessible by foot... Or boat. *Fuel costs (diesel) was considerably cheaper here than back home (near Newcastle) by 20p per litre 149.9 (date of our holiday was the last week in March 2023) at the Texaco garage in Portreath Enjoy your stay, we certainly did and we both slept so much better too. We hope to go back ❤️ Debs & Shaun

  • "The above really says it all."

    A most comfortable property for enjoying a self catering holiday. So much space - but there was only 2 in the accommodation. Really useful to have a bedroom, bathroom & separate toilet downstairs. The 2 bedrooms upstairs were a really good size but no bathroom - this is perhaps the only negative comment I would make. Many thanks to the owners - overall would certainly recommend.

    Perfect for exploring the island and further afield, we even managed a day trip from Holyhead (about 25 mins away) to Dublin! Brilliant hosts, friendly & helpful but not in any way intrusive, and the bara brith & the rest of the welcome pack were much appreciated when we arrived at around 11pm (looking forward to trying the bara brith recipe!). Would recommend and we would certainly come back here for our next Anglesey adventure.

    Although there is only one toilet, this is separate to the bathroom and did not cause a video for our group - my parents, my husband and I, and our three young children. We enjoyed using the fire, the large garden and the conservatory. The downstairs bedroom and WC was great for my dad , who is awaiting a hip operation. Lovely property. Everything you need in easy driving distance. Beach 5 mins in car and Beaumaris and Red Warf Bay very close. Wpuld be difficult without a car, but if you have access to one it's no issue at all.

    The owners are on hand, in an unobtrusive way, and were very helpful with our questions. They're a Welsh speaking couple which was good for me as I'm learning the language, but of course they both speak English, in fact the lady is from Yorkshire originally. The property can easily accommodate up to 6 people. Just two of us went so we had loads of space. Just a couple of minutes walk away and you're then overlooking the sea. Red Wharf Bay and Llanddona beach are both worth a visit and are easily accessible. Then of course there'e the rest of the island :-)

The property

This well-appointed cottage, attached to the owner’s home, is in a delightful peaceful location on the edge of the small village of Llanddona, on the north coast of Anglesey.

Boasting countryside views, this charming cottage is a perfect base for friends and families wanting to explore and enjoy all that this beautiful island has to offer.

Enter the cottage through the light and airy conservatory, a lovely quiet space for relaxing whilst overlooking the patio and lovely views.

The modern and well-equipped kitchen benefits from a TV and a dining table large enough to seat all guests, making this the ideal place to socialise before retiring to the comfortable sitting room with a warming open fire and Smart TV.

There are three comfortable bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor along with the family bathroom, providing flexible accommodation for guests who may struggle with stairs.

Outside, there is a private lawned garden, a lovely spot to sit and enjoy a cool drink on a hazy summer’s eve, and guests also have private use of a patio area.

Llanddona village has a friendly, welcoming pub, which serves a good selection of home-cooked meals, snacks and local ales.

Llanddona Beach forms the eastern end of Red Wharf Bay and is located on the Anglesey Coastal Path between Benllech and Penmon and is ideal for a day of seaside fun with activities such as swimming, windsurfing and kitecarting, as well as offering short walks to Penmon Priory and Holy Well.

The picturesque little town of Beaumaris is certainly worth a visit, with its array of shops, tea rooms and magnificent castle.

Simdda Wen Cottage provides a combination of quiet relaxation and family fun-filled activities, on the popular and delightful island of Anglesey.
