    There are three good sized double rooms upstairs and the addition of a small conservatory downstairs makes all the difference with a warm and light space to enjoy even when the weather isn't so good. The location is surprisingly peaceful given that there is a small car park and a through road outside the house; there was very little disturbance from either. From this beautiful location we explored the whole island which had so much to see and do, even in a week when the June weather was unseasonably cold and damp. I have a couple of quibbles about the cottage both of which we were aware of in advance. Firstly; the back door lock is unreliable and it can be difficult to turn the the key. I was warned about this, nevertheless it should be fixed before the lock seizes up completely. The other feature, which it would be difficult to do anything about, is the lack of a bathroom upstairs other than an en suite for the master bedroom. Visiting the downstairs loo via the very narrow staircase in the middle of the night could be tricky for some people. With those two caveats in mind I can certainly recommend Malltraeth Cottage where we have enjoyed one of our best holidays ever.

The property

A 19th century stone-built terraced cottage in the pleasant village of Malltraeth, only 50 yards from the beautiful coastline of the Cefni Estuary, which is surrounded by the delightful Newborough Forest and warren sand dunes.

This well-renovated Anglesey cottage provides fully-equipped, comfortable accommodation with a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

There are lovely views of the Malltraeth Estuary, Newborough Forest and the Snowdonia mountain range from the cottage, as well as wonderful coastal walks practically from the doorstep.

The area is renowned for birdwatching, and red squirrels can be seen just a mile away, plus there are stunning sandy beaches, such as the award-winning Llanddwyn, 4 miles away.

Take advantage of the renowned watersports facilities at Rhosneigr, sea and lake fishing, a coastal cycle track, excellent golf courses, Plas Newydd (NT), Anglesey Sea Zoo or even a day trip to Ireland from Holyhead.

An excellent Malltraeth cottage for an exciting all-year-round holiday.

About the location


Newborough 2 miles; Rhosneigr 8 miles.

The small village of Malltraeth lies in the south west corner of Anglesey, at the head of the long inlet formed by the Cefni Estuary and close to the popular Newborough Forest and Warren sand dunes. Malltraeth Pool and the magnificent sweep of marshes and sand dunes, which stretch south to Llanddwyn Island, are all part of a National Nature Reserve. The whole area is renowned for its birdlife and Malltraeth was once home to the famous wildlife artist Charles F Tunnicliffe. There are wonderful forest and coastal walks from the village, which has a pub, a cafe serving afternoon tea and a chip shop (also selling basic items/newspapers etc). Close by are beautiful beaches at Llanddwyn (reputedly the 4th best in Britain), Aberffraw, and Cable Bay, or head to Rhosneigr, which is renowned for its all year round watersports facilities.
