  • "First class property."

    Very well appointed. Nice to have 2 bathrooms. Excellent owner living next door. Looked after us very well. Quiet location with lovely views. Village is in the centre of the island so handy for visiting everywhere. Would certainly return.

  • "We recently stayed here as a base for our honeymoon and it was amazing!"

    It was a beautiful basecamp for our special holiday. The light and airy décor and the aesthetics of the garden area that was ours to use made it feel as if we were abroad rather than a staycation. It was a little slice of Costa del Anglesey. The facilities provided are the perfect balance of just enough to survive but not too fully functioning that you are encouraged to go out and explore and try the local eateries. Yes the owners are technically on site as the property is adjacent to their own but apart from a little hello at the beginning of our holiday they kept themselves out of they way and weren't intrusive at all allowing us our privacy and freedom to enjoy ourselves. I would say for a couple looking for a little escape this place was perfect. Beautifully romantic and very impressively well kept.

  • "The cottage was perfect for our needs."

    We ate in twice using the BBQ provided and ate out twice in a nearby restaurant. Although near a road, there was little nuisance from tragic The garden was lovely. Inside the house, having 2 bathrooms was great! The bed was extremely comfortable. The downstairs chairs were a little uncomfortable and it was unclear which bins outside were for general waste and recycling Also the house is hard to find and the sat nav thought it was house round the corner so it would have helped to have a sign outsideof the rental property not just the main property

  • "A wonderful annexe/cottage."

    Set in the countryside, in the middle of the island, so visiting anywhere is really simple. The annexe has everything you need. Very clean and tidy, with wonderful seating areas outside. Parking on-site. A lot of time, thought, and effort has gone in to this property.

  • "Booking was easy and straight forward."

    Cottage was exactly as described. It was all fresh and clean, even the towels were white and fluffy. Nice surprise welcome pack. Lots of kitchen equipment provided, just no oven which we knew before we arrived and wasn’t a problem. The weather was a bit chilly but the owners adjusted the heating and it was cosy and warm. A bbq, fire pit and outdoor seating for warmer weather plus a washing machine. We had a great time, thanks very much.

  • "This property was in a very central location so ideal for exploring Anglesey, everywhere we went seemed to be about a 20 minute drive away!"

    It was very light, clean and airy and was ideal for the 2 of us for our 3 night stay. It was very well equipped, and spacious apart from the kitchen but thankfully we had seen that from other reviews. There is no proper cooker, just a 2 ring hob which is in the cupboard and a combi microwave so it was a bit of a struggle juggling everything to cook a meal. The images on the website aren't up to date as there is now a wooden kitchen trolley which was extremally useful, as well as a plate rack on the wall. It was a pity there was no freezer but again we knew this before we stayed, there was just an ice box in the fridge which never really got cold. The property is very private, we did occasionally hear the owners but never saw them which was actually a bit odd! We appreciated the jug of milk in the fridge and lovely chocolate cakes left for us! We would certainly stay there again for another short break.

  • "We had very warm welcome and enjoyed a fabulous week in this beautiful property."

    It is ideal for two people and being located in the centre of Anglesey all places are easy to reach. The large patio is the ideal spot to sit and look at the rural views and to enjoy a morning coffee or evening tipple! The only slightly negative comment I would make is that the kitchen area is very compact. However, all the equipment needed is there ( except a freezer) and with careful juggling meals can be prepared. The property was exceptionally clean and nothing was too much trouble for the owner. We both really enjoyed our stay and hope to return sometime.

  • "The photos and reviews already posted were spot on."

    The accommodation was extremely clean and comfortable. The owners had thought of everything. A welcome pack on arrival was indeed very welcome and appreciated. The outside patio and furniture looked extremely inviting, but the weather unfortunately prevented us enjoying the beautiful views with a glass of wine. We would definitely recommend a visit to Drws y Gorlan.

    Outside was overlooking fields and the owners garden. Diolch Drws y Gorlan for a very relaxing break.

  • "The accommodation was first class."

    Spotlessly clean, everything is to a high standard and the owners, Bob and Wendy had just about thought of everything we would need to make our stay as comfortable as you could possibly get. They gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble. The private patio area is well laid out with seating, wood burner and BBQ. We had many cosy evenings sat under the stars watching passing satellites and the odd shooting star. We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Drws y Gorlan and will definitely be returning next year!

The property

Resting on the outskirts of Llanerch-y-medd, in the heart of the Isle of Anglesey, is this romantic semi-detached annex, Drws y Gorlan.

With far reaching country views, Drws y Gorlan is a scenic base within easy reach of some wonderful sandy beaches, ideal for couple seeking to explore the beauty of the Isle of Anglesey.

As you step into the property, you are welcomed by an open-plan living space with a quirky dining table to enjoy some breakfast before a day out and chairs so you enjoy an evening of television, and a kitchenette so you can prepare a picnic to take to the coast; load the slow cooker ahead of your day and return to the delectable scent of the fruits of your labour.

Take a few steps up to find the handy washing machine and the bathroom where you can soak in a bath or freshen up under the shower.

When the evening draws to a close, climb up to the first-floor where there is a double bedroom, with storage for guests to unpack and a stylish en-suite shower room for guests to have an extra bit of privacy.

Outside there is off-road parking on a shared driveway, and a private patio with furniture, barbeque and fire pit so you can enjoy an evening under the stars.

Take a short drive into Llanerch-y-medd to find a shop for any self-catering essentials, or two pubs, a café and a fish and chip shop for when you fancy eating out.

Whilst in the area, be sure to visit the stony landscape of Parys Mountain, home to a network of trails through the ancient copper mine that once produced more copper than any other mine across the world; follow the path to the top of the Great Opencast and take in the panoramic views across the colourful excavations, stretching as far as the peak of Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowdon) on a clear day.

With a plethora of walking, hiking and cycling trails on your doorstep, you're in an outdoor adventurer’s paradise!

Embark on a cycling adventure and follow the 36-mile circular tour of Route 566, known locally as Lôn Las Copr, passing the only working windmill in Wales en-route, or follow the Anglesey Coastal Path as it runs parallel along the dramatic coastline of the Isle of Anglesey through varying terrains including towering sand dunes, coastal heaths and ancient woodland, offering the best views of the unspoilt scenery decorating the sought-after isle.

Head towards the east coast to enjoy the pebbled beach and Old Fishermen's Cottages at Moelfre, or the sandy beaches and shorefront eateries at Benllech and Red Wharf Bay.

If you're looking for a two-footed adventure, take a scenic walk around the country paths and freshwater of Llyn Cefni and Llyn Alaw, or head for the hills of Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park or the more local Mynydd Bodafon which is a great spot for a picnic.

Within driving distance, you can spend an afternoon up close with the animals at Pili Palas Nature World, discover the 13th century castle and Victorian jail at Beaumaris, or take a stroll around the wonderful Anglesey Model Village.

On your way back stop at the ancient woodland in Llangefni, with a dingle and an area filled with the rare and native Red Squirrel.

Enjoy everything that the Isle of Anglesey has to offer with your loved one, with the wonderful Drws y Gorlan as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
