Whilst the property has unique character we did feel the property needs a lot of TLC, especially when comparing living room with the kitchen and dining room. Dining room was very uncomfortable to sit at, and very tight seating area. Kitchen has a lot of equipment beyond use (frying pans rusty,plated and cups chipped, utensils rusty / damaged, door from kitchen to dining room could not be closed as did not latch to properly. Beds were very uncomfortable - some new mattresses would improve them. Shower leaked badly in the bathroom and lots of mould. Needs to be a warning on the description about the extremely low roof areas as some door frames had no padding and I personally made my head bleed 3 times, if you have a bad back this may be worth a miss as bending a lot. Think the fire provisions on arrival were sparse, thankfully we brought our own logs too. Area was very secluded which was great, and muddy track to beach was good - bring your wellies though! Finally thanks for returning a coat I left in the cottage. Reviewed by MarkOct 2023 "It was a super location to get away from it all and the owners were really helpful and friendly." Comfortable and in a very tranquil spot with stunning views across the bay and well located to get round the many sites of Anglesey with the village shop and pub only a mile away and Holyhead nearby. Good location for accessing the beaches along this part of the coast and walking on the coastal path around Anglesey Reviewed by TrevorSep 2023 "Beautiful setting, so peaceful." The boys were able to run round without worry. Made to feel very welcome and the boys loved the chickens. Everything else was superb. Reviewed by AdinaAug 2023 "The property was in need of a good clean there was a lot of things that needed maintenance which we did point out to the owner." We had a large infestation of flying ants in the hallway which we dealt with then an infestation of beetles the owner said it was because it's an old house. The toaster only has two slots working which we reported., the kitchen drawer the front kept coming off which we tried to glue back on the washing line was broken and were told it was only a couple of weeks old but this didn't help us so we got a washing line ourselves as it was the only way to dry clothes. The bath leaked so did not use . The area was lovely and great for walking Margaret was very nice we met her every day when she came to feed the chickens and let the dog out for a walk. She seemed to know about the problems and said they had changed the cleaner Reviewed by RichardJul 2023 "We enjoyed a lovely family holiday at Ty Fferm Bodlasan" Reviewed by WendyJul 2023 "We had a magical stay." Really felt like a home from home and had everything we needed. My daughter (nearly 2) absolutely loved the run of the garden and the little wendy house and sand pit outside. Such a safe space for her to play in. We walked down to the beach everyday (5mins down a beautiful wild flower path) and explored Anglesey by car easily from this spot. The owners were really welcoming and informative. Such a wonderful place to stay. We definitely plan to visit again soon. Reviewed by Jo-annJun 2023 "We’ve had the most wonderful stay at this very beautiful cottage ." We had two toddlers under three and it was a great property and garden to explore with them. Because this is a period property the owners were not able to fit stair gates as advertised - this wasn’t an issue for us - but something to bear in mind if you have a really little toddler. The owners are so welcoming and it’s a beautiful location. Highly recommend! Reviewed by LinnheApr 2023 "Well what a fantastic place home from home, everything you would need to have a ..." Well what a fantastic place home from home, everything you would need to have a stress free holiday, the walk to the beach is five minutes, the welcome basket was a surprise and that makes you feel special, i would go back in a heartbeat, great place to go sight seeing from, great garden if you have kids can sleep 6, wildlife in abundance and owners are very very nice, if you want pure relaxation then this is the place to go, love it xx Reviewed by WarrenApr 2023 "Beautiful cottage set n stunning surroundings." The Owens were very welcoming and the hamper was greatly appreciated. We had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be back. Diolch. Reviewed by AnneApr 2023 "A lovely location, with a glorious view, just a short walk to the beach." Just a few minutes drive away from many Anglesey attractions. Spacious sitting rooms. Reviewed by PenelopeMar 2023 "Fantastic property and a true home from home experience." There is nothing fake or pretentious about the property. We all loved our stay here from age 2 to 53. There was everything we needed in the kitchen and a nice touch with the welcome hamper. There were plenty of toys for little ones inside and out as well as an array of dvds. The views are simply stunning. The owners were lovely and friendly. We would stay again in a heartbeat and happily recommend to friends and family. Please don't change a thing about this property it was fantastic. Reviewed by YvetteSep 2022 "We had a really lovely family get together in this homely and surprisingly spacious cottage." Archie the toddler had the benefit of a garden which he does not at home and we were able to thoroughly enjoy family time with both Archie and 8 week old Oscar which we were very sadly unable to with Archie due to the lockdown in 2020 when he was born. We loved the wonderful views of Holyhead which were ever changing and the toing and froing of the ferries. We went swimming at Treaddur, Church Bay and conveniently down the track from Bodlasan Farm at Llanfachraeth.The beach in the late evening is superb with a setting sun, the cries of the curlews, the heron fishing on the foreshore and the tooting of owls on the way back. We found the Owen family utterly kind and friendly, a lovely hamper of goodies was left for our arrival including eggs from the chickens. There are ample places to visit, too many for just one week! We went to NT Plas Newydd, a trip to Puffin Island, Benllech Beach leading to beautiful Red Wharf Bay. A great place to leave worldly problems behind just for a week and share the clearly treasured childhood home of the owners. Reviewed by WendyJul 2022 "This is the third time we have visited Bodlasan Fawr and again it didn’t disappoint, it is a comfortable home from home set in a lovely location." The house was lovely and had everything we required for a great holiday. The Owen family are very friendly and we enjoyed our morning chats. This was my Granddaughter’s first holiday and she especially loved the chickens and sheep, so all in all a great time was had by all. Reviewed by SusanJun 2022 "Brilliant cottage in a fantastic location." Cottage was well equipped and could not fault anything. Hosts were friendly and helpful, ensuring everything was ok. Definitely one of the best holiday cottages we have visited and would definitely recommend it if you like being away from it all. Would love to go back again soon. Thank you for a lovely holiday. Reviewed by PamelaMay 2022 "Lovely cottage in beautiful location." We had a great holiday here and will definitely try to come back again. The owners are friendly and the place was nice and clean. The Wi-Fi was slow, which I think might be due to the remote location, but 4G had strong signal, which was good. Reviewed by SarahApr 2022 "This farmhouse is beautiful, well equipped, and set in stunning surroundings with a short private track down to the beach which has outstanding views." The owners are very friendly, welcoming and helpful - thank you for the welcome hamper, fresh eggs and wine - it was very much appreciated. We loved the chickens coming to say hello every morning and also Jac, the collie too. We would highly recommend this property and hope to stay again . Massive thanks to the owners for making our stay so memorable. Reviewed by AnneApr 2022 "The farmhouse was in a great location." Main living room needs an extra radiator found it quite cold in the evenings and it could do with a new sofa in there the black sofa was a bit passed its best and very low. Kitchen is well kitted out plenty of pans plates cups etc. Bedrooms were big and spacious. The owner was a lovely accommodating man any issues were dealt with immediately all in all yes I would stay there again. The website need updating because it doesn't provide towels anymore. Reviewed by JulieMar 2022 "We had a brilliant stay, thank you." It was a great base to explore Anglesey and so quiet! Very comfortable and cosy. Although if you want to a short walk to a local pub that is quite tricky, it's probably more accurate to say the local pub is over a mile away. Reviewed by ElizabethOct 2021 "This was our second visit to Ty Fferm Bodlasan and it certainly didn’t disappoint it was just as we remembered , lovely comfortable house ,fabulous location, fantastic hosts , home from home really relaxing." Anglesey itself has something for everyone and the beaches are some of the best We have visited , will definitely be back. Sue & John Reviewed by SusanSep 2021 "This is a lovely farmhouse, beautifully renovated to make a comfortable holiday home, and hosted by a lovely family." On a working farm but in a secluded spot - only near neighbours are 5 hens in the barn and Jac, the very friendly sheepdog. We had wonderful weather so had breakfast in the garden, watching the ferries sail in and out of Holyhead. Our daughter and grandchildren walked the short distance to the almost private beach at least twice a day. They even swam! Perfect for bird-watching and star-gazing. This was our second visit and we'll be returning. Reviewed by NormaSep 2021 "Fantastic cottage in a fantastic location and wonderful family running it." Just returned from a weeks stay, the cottage had everything we needed and more. Beach only a few minutes away and more or less your own. Pub is very friendly with a good atmosphere local shop is well stocked and again friendly. Can't wait to return. Reviewed by CarlyMay 2021 "This is an excellent property located in a fairly isolated spot, up a track approximately 1 mile from the road which was perfect for us." We had an excellent holiday there and would recommend it to anybody looking for a restful holiday with plenty of peace and quiet! Reviewed by RogerMay 2021 "Bodlasan Fawr is an excellent location for those seeking an away from it all holiday." A warm, well equipped farmhouse in a superb location commanding superb views across Holyhead Bay. The owners are most helpful and a mine of historical information about the property and local area. Reviewed by ArthurApr 2021 "We had such a lovely time at Ty Fferm Bodlasan." The cottage was fabulous. Full of character and so homely. Had all the facilities we needed. Loved the real fire in the living room and the roll top bath. Then the location, wow - just a short walk down a private track and you are on the beach. Perfect if you want to get some peace and quiet and relax. Mrs Owen was only a text away if you needed anything and was really lovely when we happened to bump into her as we were leaving. Oh and how can I not mention the five chickens! We bought some wild bird seed on our first shop and then every day they would come over and see us. Mrs Owen even gave us some eggs. Most places were still closed due to Covid restrictions so we did loads of walking including two days straight from the cottage and took picnics each day. Reviewed by JoanneApr 2021 "We were disappointed to find a piano that was unplayable." We had specifically booked a house with a piano so that our children could practice during our stay. Otherwise the welcome was warm and the house met our expectations. Crockery and cutlery were not always very clean. A second toilet would have been a bonus with five people in the house. Reviewed by ThomasOct 2019 "Peaceful location, within easy reach of the beach." Reviewed by DavidSep 2019 "The location of this old farmhouse is what makes it a standout place to stay." It is near to so many of the great places to visit in Anglesey but also is in a unique place on its own - 5 minutes walk along an almost private track to a good beach; a mile further down a very accessible track than other properties & the only accommodation on the farm - ensuring peace, tranquillity & privacy. Reviewed by SteveSep 2019 "Such a beautiful farm house in absolutely stunning surroundings." We were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived by the host and his daughter. We loved the addition of the farm dog Jack and the three, free range chickens. The welcome pack was just what we needed for our first night after a lovely stroll along a very quiet beach. Thank you! In the week that we stayed here, we enjoyed many a walk down the private road to the beach. The children and ourselves loved every minute of our holiday and would recommend this house to everyone: we will be back!! Reviewed by AndrewAug 2019 "Bodlasan Fawr is a beautiful and especially peaceful cottage - one of the best places we've ever stayed in." The cottage itself is a delight - an historic farmhouse with original features, wonderfully appointed, comfortable, beautiful bedrooms, plus all mod cons so pretty much perfect. The location itself is brilliant, a few minutes walk from the cottage door down a private country lane brings you to a delightful and deserted beach; a few minutes away in the car is Holy Island where we visited (and climbed to the top of) the spectacular South Stacks lighthouse and visited amazingly beautiful sea coves and cliff top walks and nature reserves. A fantastic holiday, we couldn't recommend it highly enough - thank you ! :o) Reviewed by JaneJul 2019 "We loved our holiday here last year the weather was terrible but id didn't ..." We loved our holiday here last year the weather was terrible but id didn't matter as the cottage was so lovely, friendly owners Reviewed by DawnJun 2019 "What an amazing cottage this is." Spacious and comfortable with all the facilities we could want. An isolated, peaceful location but actually only a mile from the village and a very short walk down to the beach. The owners were friendly and very helpful. Reviewed by NoelMay 2019 "Really friendly owners, who personally greeted us within an hour of our arrival." When we entered our cottage we were greeted with the lovely sight of a bottle of wine and a pack of nibbles. The sights and friendliness of every on Ynys Mon was exceptional in every way. The only working mill on Ynys Mon was being refurbished by it's new owner when we tried visiting on the Tuesday, he invited us to revisit on the Thursday/ Friday when he would open early to accommodate us. Not only did this gentleman keep his word, he gave us a private personal escort round the mill, explaining much that we would not otherwise have known. Considering he wasn't due to open until the Monday after our holiday ended, we felt really welcomed and privileged. This gentleman refused our offer of payment, until I pressed him, declaring we wanted to be his first paying customers. We will be following the progress of the mill. And this young man's hospitality really made our holiday. His name was Richard ? (I don't recall his surname - wish I did) He is a credit to Wales.

Our 2 year old grandson adored his private route to the beach, the friendly sheep dog and the hens. A very peaceful, remote yet safe setting for all generations.

It's a perfect location from a shallow sandy beach. We saw 2 dog walkers in a week, so it's quiet too. The house has everything you could need for the week and the owners are very polite and welcoming. We had a lovely little welcome pack, including the freshest eggs I've had in a while. It gets really dark out there at night so it's a perfect spot for stargazing. We had a clear view of the milky way and watched the Orionids peak on our last night. I've never seen it so clear. No negatives, we cant wait to go back!

Toys and play area for the children. Well situated with a short walk to the nearby beach. Reviewed by JenniferAug 2016 "Considering how busy Anglesey can be, and the number of large caravan sites and developments with multiple holiday homes cheek by jowl, this cottage is ideal for those wanting peace, quiet and great views (for now at least - there is a small cottage adjacent to this that looks as though it is being developed and it although the buildings are listed there is always the possibility of barn conversions too, which would change things considerably)." The beach is perhaps not as picturesque as others nearby but very few people seem to know about it, so often we had it to ourselves. It is safe for swimming, though it's a long walk to the water at low tide, is easily accessible on foot down a sheltered private lane between hedgerows and lined with meadow flowers going down to small dunes.
