The location of the cottage is very easy to find using the sat nav and we arrived to a very warm welcome with the owners (very kind and friendly) meeting us at the property, they had also left a mini hamper of wine, cheese, shortbread biscuits, tea, coffee and Welsh sea salt. The cottage is located in a very small, quiet village with a real sense of community, however, generally, places in Anglesey are only minutes away, there is lovely Cemaes Bay 6 minutes drive away from the cottage (plenty of others within short distances) and a small town approx 10 mins away (Almwych). Despite staying in a small village, there are plenty of people about, all really welcoming and chatty, there is an excellent little grocery shop seconds away from the cottage that stocks anything you could possibly need, there is also a community cafe next door high opens a few hours most days - their food is really nice and the volunteers are so friendly. Our 5 year old liked the park, which is just a minutes walk away. The cottage is very close to the road (there is no path outside of the property), however, traffic noise wasn't bothersome, care just needs to be taken due to the road junction nearby. The cottage itself is very cosy (but not small), clean and fresh. The decor is modern, simple but very tasteful with everything needed for the holiday from complementary slippers to the George Foreman grill, the owners have great taste in furnishing and there are lovely touches throughout. The beds are extremely comfortable ( I enjoyed getting into bed every night!) with plenty of bedding and pillows -again feeling very fresh and new. There is nothing negative to say about the accommodation, I hope to return and I would definately recommend it to others.

About the location
Cemaes Bay 1.5 miles; Holyhead 15 miles.
Llanfechell is a small village situated one and a half miles from Cemaes Bay, on the northern tip of Anglesey in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village gets its name from the nearby 12th century Mechell Church, which has been extended over the years and where it is believed that St Mechell is buried. The ancient Parys mountain copper mines are seven miles away, with their lunar-like landscape and the area is popular with geologists and archaeologists due to the rock formations at Mechell Mountain and the several ancient monuments scattered around, reputed to be some of the oldest in the world. Llanfechell is home to a village pub, which serves traditional ale with a warm welcome. Nearby, the pretty seaside village of Cemaes Bay is home to three pubs, a few shops, a natural sheltered harbour and a sandy Blue Flag beach, edged by grassy cliffs and ideal for safe bathing and family fun. The whole of the Isle of Anglesey is renowned for its miles of stunning and varied coastline, offering wonderful walking and cycling opportunities, along with birdwatching, excellent watersports, fishing and many quality golf courses. Anglesey Sea Zoo and a variety of National Trust properties and gardens are all within reach on this beautiful island, while a day trip to Dublin can be enjoyed from nearby Holyhead. A great location offering something for all the family.
