  • "Wonderful property, very well appointed in a beautiful setting, quiet and central location means all of Anglesey is easily reached."

    Special mention to Ceri the owner, lovely gentleman.

  • "Great place, lovely host and great location with epic sunset views."

    Fflei the Collie was a great playmate for our Lab. Lovely clean and well maintained place with a great open plan layout, tonnes of storage and everything you could ever need. Fantastic base for family beach adventures. The only negative we had was the directions from Sykes which said to “turn left at the track immediately after the bungalow”……which is blatantly a huge two storey farm house with a massive conservatory. Despite explaining to the lady on the phone at Sykes that there wasn’t a bungalow on that road, she persisted in running through the directions. Please update so others can avoid the frustration.

    Everything was thoughtfully put together making it a really comfortable and easy place for the four of us to stay. The location and views were fabulous and so quiet. It gave us the perfect base to explore the island and get some much needed rest and relaxation. We would love to book again in the future.

    Our first visit to the island. We like our peace and quiet and how well this fitted the bill. The accommodation was ideal, comfortable, well equipped. Owner, Ceri, has made a great job of providing a lovely experience which will be difficult to top as and when we return to Anglesey. Definitely recommend and if you read this Ceri the potatoes were beautiful and reminded us of how they used to taste when we were kids. Diolch Ceri

    Fantastic views in a peaceful setting. The owner Cari is a very amiable well travelled chap a pleasure to chat to, accompanied by his working dog flea, who was very friendly with our little Dog. The litmus test for any holiday rental is would you go back, we along with many others who commented in the visitors book would definitely return.

    The cottage was gorgeous, clean and with everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The views are fabulous and sitting watching the sunset on the patio was just the tonic this busy family needed. There are great walks and beaches within a 10-20 minute drive and we loved the Black Lion for food. Thank you!

  • "We have had a very relaxing week in this gem of a cottage, it is so spacious and comfortable, very clean and it set in lovely countryside surrounded by rabbits and swallows."

    It was a real pleasure to meet the owner Ceri and his gorgeous best pal Fflei the sheepdog. We would have no problem staying again if on this beautiful island of Anglesey, in fact after my brother came to visit us one day he immediately booked to come later in the year! The coastline is stunning,my favourite place is Llanddwyn island.We loved the Dingle walk through the woods near Llangefni and saw a few Red Squirrels .Moelfe has a beautiful safe cliff top walk and Church bay too.This time of year (May ) you will be amazed at all the spring flowers that cover the rocks in full glory.The Gorse and the Bluebells also give a good display. Parys mountain is fascinating with all its coloured rocks, it used to be a Copper mine but you can wander around on the foot paths. There is so much to discover still but it’s an easy place to drive around. Enjoy!

    It is warm and welcoming and has been tastefully furnished with everything you would need for your stay. The views from the lounge and the patio, towards the sea, are stunning whatever the weather, and in the evening you can see the light from the Skerries lighthouse. Although situated down a country lane and very peaceful, it is close to the A5025 which gives easy access to Cemaes and the beautiful coves and beaches nearby. The owner, Ceri, who lives in the farmhouse is very friendly and helpful, aided by his lovely collie Fflei. We can highly recommend and would love to return.

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage in a stunning location."

    It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious, we enjoyed every second of our weeks stay. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need for your stay. Lovely big porch/utility room to store your wellies, coats and shoes, which housed a washer/drier too which 3 of us and a dog fitted in when we returned soaked from a walk one morning without standing on each others heads! There was a fully stocked cupboard containing every manner of cleaning product which saved us space in the boot (always wonder what to take and what will be supplied) including ironing board, iron and hoover. We were pleasantly surprised to find tea, coffee and milk left for us by the owner which was a lovely touch. Two double bedrooms, one with access to a small patio, while double doors led from the living room to a larger patio with fantastic views of the horizon which included the sea and the light house. We were incredibly lucky with the weather and explored a different beach each day, our favourites were church bay, sandy beach and Lligwy beach. The last two were huge and virtually empty which we loved! The cottage is down a long hidden lane next to a large house, (sykes directions said it was a bungalow and we drove past it at first because we were looking for a bungalow not a house) its location is ideal as you feel remote with only the sounds of birds yet you are only 5 minutes from the main road which takes you all around Anglesey. Watched foxes playing one morning and there was also a large buzzard we watched hunting most evenings. We also walked the coastal path which had absolutely incredible views, a brilliant holiday would love to return and would definitely recommend, 10 out of 10 from us!

The property

Amlwch 8.8 miles.

Boasting a peaceful rural position on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, is this well-presented cottage, Plas y Brain Uchaf.

This welcoming retreat is ideally suited for a relaxing getaway or even an action-packed adventure with the coastal village of Cemaes Bay just four miles away.

This contemporary-style property comes with two well-presented bedrooms, each benefiting from double beds, ample storage and views of the surrounding location to enjoy every morning.

Look forward to spending your wind down time within the open-plan living room, where you and your loved ones will find everything you could possibly need during a week-long break.

The designated chef of the group will be delighted to find a spacious kitchen, housing all the essentials to whip up home-cooked meals, whilst the family gather around the dining table to enjoy a sociable evening over a glass of wine.

After dinner, choose to tune into the TV or admire the surrounding views from the patio doors, whilst the roaring wood burning stove fills the room with tranquillity during those chilly winter months.

For those visiting during the summer months, spend a moment or two upon the patio area where a spot of alfresco dining can be enjoyed whilst soaking up the surroundings further.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, venture to the local pub serving food, or venture a little further afield to the town of Amlwch where you will discover a larger selection of pubs and eateries to choose from.

For those feeling active Cemlyn Nature reserve offers plenty of wildlife and wonderful coastal walks, Parys Mountain offers a scenic hike amid a historic copper-mining site, or the footpaths leading up to and around South Stack take in the breath-taking coastline, or pop into Holyhead, where you can catch a ferry to Dublin.

Plas y Brain Uchaf is a superb base for a relaxing getaway to the picturesque location.
