    Wonderful location, immaculately clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated, what more could one want from a holiday home.

  • "We had a brilliant time at this amazing cottage."

    We were looking for a peaceful and relaxing break away from the stresses of every day life and this cottage provided that in abundance. The house itself is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We especially liked the rainfall shower downstairs and the seaside theme of decoration. The views from the garden and upstairs windows were fantastic. We had coffee (courtesy of the Dolce Gusto machine and pods supplied) and Welsh cakes on the patio every day and just enjoyed the quietness and the views, whilst watching the passing boats. We had planned to do quite a bit of sight seeing whilst on Anglesey, but in the end hardly went anywhere because we enjoyed the cottage and Penmon Point so much. The owners left a really lovely welcome pack which included the aforementioned Welsh cakes and lots of other treats which we really enjoyed. We will definitely be booking to stay here again next year.

    And we loved our stay. The only recommendation we would make is changing the sofas as they are not to comfortable.

    Great place to get away from it all but a short drive to civilisation! Really clean and warm. We all loved it!

  • "Beautiful cottage with all we needed and more."

    The area, Penmon Point, is spectacular and all of our party of 7 thoroughly enjoyed exploring the beaches, the surrounding area and the nearest town, Beaumaris. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, and quickly sorted out a small problem that we had. We would thoroughly recommend this property.

  • "The cottage is in a superb location in the NE corner of Anglesey, with fabulous views out over the coast to the mainland and, more locally, to Puffin Island and the Penmon lighthouse."

    Despite being a little "out of the way", it's still only a 10-15 min drive into the busy and pretty town of Beaumaris and within an easy 30-45 min drive of mainland towns, Snowdonia and the rest of beautiful Anglesey. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and is plenty spacious enough for 5-6 people. The garden is dog-safe and enclosed, with great views. Really well-equipped kitchen, and we were really pleased to find the thoughtful gifts of milk, bread, beer and even dog treats on arrival! Would thoroughly recommend it as somewhere to get away from it all. Spent many an evening on the beach just below the house, watching the birds, seals and harbour porpoises until the sun went down.

  • "Coastguards cottage was excellent."

    All we wanted and more. Storm Dennis was with us all week but the views from all rooms was enough to keep us happy. There was ample room for all 8 of us. Ages ranging from 6months to 82 years old. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back.

  • "We have stayed in a lot of self catering properties and I must say that 2 Old Coastguard House is the best we've ever experienced."

    We stayed the first week of February and arrived in the dark, it was lovely that the house had welcoming lights on and was lovely and warm. There was a much appreciated welcome pack with lots of lovely local produce, plus the essentials of milk and bread. The house was extremely clean and we felt at home instantly. The house is beautiful and a lot of thought had gone into the decor and the dressing of the rooms. ( It has given me some ideas for when we re-decorate.) The facilities were great and there was everything we needed for our stay. The location - well wow !!!!! absolutely amazing. Fabulous views, lovely and quiet and lots of birds and wildlife. We generally never return to a property, because life's to short right ! We are, however, going to make an exception with 2 Old Coastguard House and will be returning next year. I highly recommend this property.

The property

2 Old Coastguard House is a cosy, semi-detached dwelling resting on the coastal seafront, near the town of Beaumaris.

Formerly this cottage was built to house the coastguard that served the nearby coastguard station and has far reaching views over the Menai Straits to Snowdonia and to the front of the property to Puffin Island and the iconic Tryn Du lighthouse.

This elegantly dressed property is an ideal base for a family break to the Welsh coast.

Upon entering the dwelling, you are welcomed to a handy porch area, making the ideal spot for kicking of muddy boots before entering the beach-inspired property.

From here, you will enter a well-appointed kitchen/diner, completed with a fresh and neutral colour palette to complement the seaside theme and to provide a delightful area for hosting your family evening meals.

Relax within the well-presented sitting room, where you can curl up on the chesterfield sofas, which sit in front of a warming wood burning fire.

Moving through to the rear of the property, you will find a charming single bedroom.

French doors lead onto the patio and benefit from breath-taking sea views with the Snowdonia mountain range beyond.

Upstairs, you will discover an elegantly presented master bedroom, housing a king-size double bed with dual aspect views of both the lighthouse and Menai Straits.

Additional bedrooms include a boat inspired bunk room and a cosy twin bedroom, suitable for adults.

Completing the first floor is a luxury family bathroom, complete with a walk-in shower, basin and WC, finished with a touch of charm.

During the summer months, you and your loved ones can make the most of a spacious lawned garden or enjoy a glass of wine on the patio area during a pleasant evening.

For amenities you will find the local shop 3.3 miles away and a selection of pubs can be situated within the centre of Beaumaris town.

Whilst staying here at Penmon Point, you can appreciate breath-taking views and some exciting wildlife, including dolphins!

Within a 15-minute drive you will reach the famous historic market town of Beaumaris, where you will be able to explore Beaumaris Castle, the Victorian prison Beaumaris Gaol or take a Puffin Island boat trip.

2 Old Coastguard House is a luxury dwelling, competed with delightful finishes to guarantee an unforgettable holiday to the coast.

About the location


Menai Bridge 4 miles.

Beaumaris is a well known historic town on the Isle of Anglesey situated on the Menai Strait and overlooking the Snowdonia mountain range, making for the most stunning of sunrises. With its medieval castle (now a World Heritage site) dating back to the reign of Edward I and its Victorian pier, gaol and courthouse, it is also known as a major centre for yachting. Beaumaris is rich in history and retains much of its medieval street pattern. It’s setting, diversity of architectural styles and periods, differing scale, open spaces, varying roofs and overall quality contribute greatly to the town’s character. There is a good selection of shops, restaurants and public houses, as well as fishing opportunities and boat trips in the town, plus a golf course nearby. Along the coast is a large bay called Red Wharf Bay; its Welsh name is Traeth Coch (Red Beach) and the area is renowned for its glorious sunsets. The bay is very shallow and at low tide, almost 25 square kilometres (10 sq. mi.) of sand is uncovered providing safe bathing, perfect for wonderful family fun, fishing and miles of stunning scenic walks. Further afield is the port of Holyhead, which has regular ferry links to Dublin. Beaumaris is a good central base for touring Wales, in a beautiful location on the south coast of the picturesque Isle of Anglesey, within easy reach of the spectacular mountains of Snowdonia.
