  • "Lovely property in a wonderful location."

    Only negative was that there was no outside space for my dog. This was problematic as a lone parent with a young child who I put to bed early, and a dog who needs a wee later in the evening.

  • "Little Hawthorn is in a great location to explore Anglesey and the area of Menai."

    The property is quirky and fab. The car parking pass is a great addition. The pictures of the property and courtyard area need updating as in the pictures it looks like you could sit in the courtyard but in fact there is a small florist/antique business below that takes up the courtyard. Also the property amenities need to be updated as I telephoned Menai holidays before our stay and was advised there was no washing machine or iron but in fact there was which was a great plus.

  • "We have stayed at Little Hawthorne twice this year in order to spend time with family in Menai Bridge, we love the quirkiness of the property."

    It is also very comfortable and homely. I’m sure we’ll be back in the not too distant future.

  • "Little Hawthorn is a very quirky apartment in a very convenient position."

    Val is a very pleasant host and the restoration shop owners were delightful. Parking was OK, with a car park behind the property and an island parking pass that allowed us to park for free anywhere on the island. The apartment is very well equipped, with ample storage and a lovely little wood burner. One real bonus was the sandwich bar next door, and a super bread shop four doors away. We can strongly recommend the Freckled Angel, Dylan’s and the Liverpool Arms for eating out.

  • "This was perfect for us."

    We were planning on using the buses to walk sections of the coast path and Menai village was an excellent hub to enable us to do this. In addition, the village has two top class restaurants, an excellent baker and a butcher that someone descibed as "the best in the UK". The flat was comfortable, had everything we needed to cook, was not noisy despite being on the high street, had adequate wifi and suited us perfectly. A bonus was the parking permit that, on the one day that we took the car out, enabled us to park for free on the other side of the island. Anglesey itself (my first visit) had wonderful walking and superb views over to Snowdonia or over to the Llen Peninsula.

  • "Little Hawthorne was really cute."

    The key safe was a but if a nightmare to open, but eventually managed to prize it open. In order to access the accomodation you have to walk through the very cute yard of an antique shop. The owners of the shop live in the attached building and were always nearby as we were coming and going to give us local tips and recommendations. Could be seen as intrusive depending on your persuasion. Very cute place though and very convenient accommodation for Menai Bridge.

  • "Little Hawthorn is the idea base for exploring the beauty of Anglesey."

    Tucked away in the corner of a wonderful courtyard shop full of exotic plants and curiosities, the flat is beautifully furnished with comfy cushions, bright rugs and a cosy woodburner, making a wonderful little nest to escape the world for a while. Everything needed was to hand and made to feel extremely welcome.

  • "Little Hawthorn was an ideal base for our holiday - Anglesey is such a special place with beautiful places to visit."

    Menai Bridge has many great shops including the fabulous Hawthorn Yard, restaurants, cafes and takeaways and Waitrose is close by too. Be sure to check out the beautiful Belgian Promenade - just a short walk from Little Hawthorn. Access to the property is via the high street or the car park - we never had any issue parking and the free council car parking pass was really useful parking across the island too.

  • "Little Hawthorn is in a great location for exploring Angelsey, good coastal walks with wonderful views of the Menai Straits."

    The accommodation is a peaceful haven for relaxing, very comfortable and well equipped making it a real home from home. Parking is available on the carpark at the back of the building. Good restaurants and a supermarket are all within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return in the future.

  • "The hosts were incredibly nice and helpful."

    We got there a bit earlier but it was already ready for us and we could check in straightaway. The flat is not for people who cannot climb stairs. The living room is quite spacious but the upstairs is not really for tall people. The bathroom could do with a bit of modernisation and it smelled a bit funny but since it was the summer we kept the window open. The flat has everything you need and it is quite quirky but maybe taking away some of the bric a brac and decorations would make it a bit less cluttered and cleaner. We would definitely return if the toilet was in better condition. Thanks for a lovely stay. The place is interesting! And we would like to go back to see how the cats are doing :)

  • "This is the second time this year, we have stayed in Little Hawthorn, in manai Bridge, North Wales."

    We would highly recommend staying here. It is a lovely quirky little place, very comfortable and with everything we needed. If you don't have a car, the bus station is a three minute walk in which you can get to explore Angelsey. Definitely would recommend Little Hawthorn to family and friends.

  • "On arrival at the property the keys were not in the security box (the code we had been given was already clearly displayed on the box and the box was open with no keys inside) so we were unable to get into the property."

    After a call to menaiholidays I was told to phone the owner directly to sort the problem. We had to wait in the car park for her to arrive to let us in. It was unclear why the keys had not been left for us. Even had the keys been left we felt it would have been very difficult to find the correct property within the crowded courtyard with its many doors! It seemed strange that more explicit instructions as to the correct door to the property had not been included in the access instructions. Also - normally information is available in holiday properties about outside bins, how appliances/heating work etc - but we could not find anything. Still not sure where the bins were! The key problem made for a disappointingly inhospitable start to our holiday and certainly an unprofessional one. I hope this does not happen for anyone else.

  • "We loved this holiday cottage."

    The owner had carefully fitted the cottage/ apartment with items which reflected the age and character of the building. Everything we needed was available and the residents of the adjoining property and business were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely recommend and intend to return in the future.

    Our stay was made uncomfortable by the urine soaked floorboards surrounding the immediate toilet area. Both of us were repeatedly bitten on our feet and legs, the source of which was unclear.

    Great location for visiting Anglesey and Snowdonia. So much to do and see in the region. The bedroom blinds do not block the street light though so it was difficult to sleep.

This delightful town sits right on the edge of the Isle of Anglesey and is home to one of two bridges to mainland Wales. It is an ideal base for a holiday and is great for exploring this beautiful island. It has a strong history which can be discovered in the Menai Bridge Heritage Museum, the well known Saint Tysilio lived on Church Island, just off of Anglesey in the 7th century, hence the name of the 15th century St. Tysilio's Church. Menai Bridge itself offers a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. In terms of entertainment, this is an ideal spot with something for everybody, there is the butterfly palace 'Pili Palas' which is incredibly popular with families, as well as the astounding Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens well worth a walk around. The Snowdonia National Park is within driving distance for you outdoor enthusiasts, it has wonderful walking, cycling and opportunities to see some beautiful sights. Nearer to the town, there are some incredible places including the popular towns of Beaumaris and Caernarfon with their majestic castles and much more to do.
