  • "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.

  • "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.

    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.

    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.

  • "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.

  • "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.

  • "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.

  • "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!!

  • "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)

  • "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.

    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!

  • "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.

The property

Llanfachraeth 1 mile. A delightful, stone-built detached Grade II listed farmhouse on a working arable farm, in an isolated position at the end of a long track, 1 mile from Llanfachraeth village and its local pub, yet just a few hundred yards walk to the coast, deserted coves and beaches found along this craggy western coast of Anglesey.

This lovely Anglesey cottage is a Grade II listed building dating back to 1849, and has been sympathetically restored to retain many original features, with exposed beams, sash windows, slate floors, and low doorways throughout.

This Anglesey cottage offers a fitted kitchen with pantry/utility room, a separate dining room with exposed beams, Rayburn stove and upright piano, and two delightful sitting rooms, allowing the adults to relax in one room, whilst the children play in the other.

Outside, this Anglesey cottage is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are fantastic views of Holyhead Bay and the cottage has its own private track down to the coast.

There is an enclosed lawn, a safe place for the children to play whilst you sit and soak up the sunshine, or cook the catch of the day over the BBQ.

This Anglesey cottage is in a secluded location, set in the centre of 100 acres of the owners' farmland, next to some of the farm's old outbuildings, now used for storage, offering a fantastic chance to get away from it all.

This cottage on Anglesey is also in a great location for Melin Llynon windmill, South Stack Lighthouse, Anglesey Sea Zoo, Plas Newydd NT mansion, beautiful Snowdonia and is close enough to Holyhead Port to even enjoy a day-trip to Ireland.

An ideal Anglesey cottage to enjoy a year-round seaside holiday in a lovely, peaceful coastal location.
