  • "Had a really nice week."

    Cottage was very comfortable and cosy with everything provided. In a quiet lane with walks for the dogs on the doorstep and just a short walk into Menai Bridge which has all the usual amenities. Would definitely return for another week to keep exploring the island.

    So pleased you had a good week Simon. Please do come back, whenever you want! Katy. Property Owner

  • "We had a great time at Ael y Bryn, it was well presented, comfortable and warm, we found it very easy to settle in as it had all the amenities and facilities that you would want to find in a well kept cottage."

    We found the location was just perfect, quiet, peaceful, and not too far from the town centre. Our dog enjoyed it too, there was plenty of tiled space for cleaning him after a day out in the fields and paddling in the sea. We appreciated the little things that you don't normally find in holiday cottages, like dog blankets, feeding bowls etc'. We found that whatever we needed was at hand and ready for our use and comfort. It is a credit to the owners, Thank you very much for letting us have a great week away.

    So glad your dog had a good time! We love dogs and try to make it just as comfortable for them as for their humans. ;-) Property Owner

  • "The cottage was brilliant."

    I had a 92 year old and 88 year old with us so having downstairs bedroom and bathroom was perfect. The cottage is within walking distance of Menai which was great too. Would have been nice to have a BBQ. The freezer was completely frozen and the fridge was too small. But these things are easily solved. The cottage was great and we had a really relaxing holiday x

  • "The cottage is beautifully presented, a real homely feel to the place."

    It is in a quiet location which was perfect for what we wanted but on our doorstep were a number of country walks. Also the town of Menai Bridge is within walking distance (downhill all the way, so up hill all the way back). All the many highlights of Anglesey are within easy striking distance to explore as is the mainland as you are in the shadow of the Menai Bridge. The owners are lovely and all correspondence was prompt and helpful as is the welcome pack telling you all the details of local activities available. This property is highly recommended and we would not hesitate to book again Thank for allowing us to stay at this wonderful well equipped cottage. Ivan, Halifax

The property

Resting on the edge of the majestic Isle of Anglesey within the bustling town of Menai Bridge is this traditional Welsh cottage, Ael Y Bryn.

Homely and traditional in style, this cottage provides spacious accommodation, arranged over two floors with lots of rustic charm and character, ideal for a family seeking a refreshing break to this corner of North Wales.

Relax into your evening within the cosy sitting room, where the exposed brick fireplace houses a warming woodburning stove.

This is a tranquil setting for unwinding in front of the TV after an action-packed day.

If you fancy an hour away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the group, head into the snug and curl up on the chaise longue with a good book in hand, or your favourite film on the second Blu-Ray player.

Beyond here is the well-equipped kitchen which is complete with all the essentials you will require to rustle up a home-cooked meal for the whole family, which you can enjoy within the separate dining room which is framed by characterful beams and antique furnishings.

The charm of the property is continued into the ground-floor double bedroom, where you will find a king-size bed, quality linens and ample storage to house your personal belongings.

A further two bedrooms can be found on the first floor, comprising of a twin bedroom and a double bedroom, both flooded in natural light from skylight windows which offer charming views across the surrounding fields.

Your canine companions will be delighted by the spacious lawn garden, where they are free to roam as you soak up the sun during a balmy afternoon.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic base, stroll into Menai Bridge where you will be delighted to find a selection of bars, restaurants and takeaways awaiting you.

A two-minute walk from the front door will take you to the beautiful Five Fields footpath with its stunning views of Snowdon.

There is something for everyone in Menai Bridge.

For the adventurous there is the adrenalin-fuelled rib ride and other water pursuits, as well as the unique shops, museums and galleries and the famous Coastal Path.

The sandy Benllech beach resort and the city of Bangor are only a 10 minute drive away.

Further afield you will find Anglesey’s many sandy beaches including the glorious beach at Newborough with its red squirrel forest, and the majestic Snowdonia mountain range.

Ael Y Bryn is an outstanding base for an action-packed holiday with your loved ones.
