  • "Beds are very comfortable slept well."

    But the lack of water was a real big issue,especially with a family of 6 .It felt like we were camping with no shower block .We had to decided either wash us or the pots .Upstairs shower never worked taps dribble water 1 min to fill kettle ,shower down stairs if it came on went hot very quickly so all wk felt dirty. When we approached the owner all we got was I know about the after pressure but nothing about getting it fixed. Also the photos don't warn you it's right next to the cowshed .

    We had a problem with the mains water and it was impossible to get Welsh Water to come to the farm, it has now been fixed. This is a working farm on which we have cattle and sheep, these animals do need sheds for the winter month I would like to state that two blue bath towels are missing, i can only assume that these were taken home in error by the customer.

  • "We had a lovely stay here."

    Nice, warm, comfortable cottage. The lady that owns the farm is such a lovely lady. Very helpful and informative. We stayed with 5 dogs, 99 year old grandma and a 10 month old baby. Beautiful views surround the property and with lambs outside our door just made the holiday. The only problem was the water pressure in the cottage wasn't great but I'm sure that will get sorted soon. Would like to thank Gweneth again for having us.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Bran Goesgoch, weather was brilliant too which was a bonus, and the local area is outstanding."

    Gwyneth is lovely,so friendly and helpful and anything you need she is there to assist. Our only slight negative would be that it would have been nice to have had table and chairs in garden to sit outside but it was early in season so understandably not there yet. Will definitely be back to visit,we are already planning when to come and can’t wait to see the farmhouse when it is back to its former glory. Thank you Gwyneth and team for a fabulous week.

  • "The Cottage was well stocked for cooking and eating lots of games for the kids inside and out."

    Very clean and the host was really friendly and helpful. she couldn't have been kinder to our children telling the kids about the farm and the animals. The host encouraged the kids to feed the animals and pet the amenable animals. The hot tub was hot on arrival and was a massive bonus to be able to chuck the kids in whilst I unpacked after a long journey. Lovely walks from the cottage and a small beach walkable with older children maybe not pre school. The local town was a very pretty with another great beach and lovely ice cream shop. A great Cottage to go and be away from all the hustle and bustle.

    Perfect location, being minutes from the coastal path and South stack but still within 10 minutes drive to supermarkets and a good range of takeaways and eateries.

  • "Great location, and the proprietor was a lovely person."

    The accommodation was clean and there was plenty of room within the building, the only downfall was the water supply. The proprietor is aware of this and with having other cottages and a farm to run this is a priority to resolve. There is plenty of room for three vehicles and a small garden area; as a point to walk from the location is not far from South Stack Lighthouse and a pair of Standing Stones.

    The staff are very helpful & friendly, we had an issue with the hot tub and Huw sorted it straight away and it was up and running again the same day. The only issue we had was that there was no hot water in the washbasins in either of the bathrooms, the showers were fine albeit that you had to pick your times to have a shower but wasn't a big issue for us. Great place for if you have dogs, enclosed garden and plenty of walks.

    Beautiful views and well situated to explore the nearby coastal delights. Our host, Mrs Campbell, went out of her way to help us enjoy our holiday with maps and recommendations and our grandchildren were thrilled to assist in feeding the pet lambs and dogs and collecting eggs which they later enjoyed for tea! Fabulous week.

  • "The cottage is in a very peaceful and relaxing location with just a bit of farm noise to remind you that you are out in the countryside."

    Perfectly comfortable for our party of 4 adults and two small dogs. We were not expecting any welcome gifts but were pleasantly surprised to find biscuits and wine left for us, plus eggs kindly supplied during the week. Mrs Campbell, the owner, is very friendly and on hand if you need her, but doesn't interfere. Previous guests have mentioned the inconsistent water pressure which can be a challenge if you are in the shower and the water cuts out, as happened to us on several occasions. It is prudent to have a large jug of water on standby!

  • "The holiday cottage was lovely and so was the owner, there were a lot of flies but we expected that as it was on a working farm, maybe it would be good to put electric fly zappers in the cottage."

    The other thing was the water was pretty much non existent on most days due to the water coming from a bore hole and the cattle must have been really thirsty the week we stopped as we went out to buy bottled water. The owner Gwyneth and Isla however were absolutely brilliant and especially with our granddaughter who loved all the animals and chickens.

    The Farm is in an area of outstanding scenery. The Farm owner and other staff were very friendly and helpful. The only criticism ( by the ladies in the party not the guys) that there should be a screen on the barn side of the hot tub even if only a bamboo or willow panel and yes we understand it is a working farm and a very well run one at that. The well cared for animals would be a great attraction to families with children.

    As per the description, it is on a working farm so there is the odd smell and machinery about but that doesn't detract from having a lovely holiday.

Please follow the directions on how to find the cottage as sat nav really doesn't work off the postcode.

    Lovely accommodation however both showers pretty unusable also hot tub right next to cow shed so flies and smell dreadful

    Thank you for your feedback. The property is advertised as being situated on a working farm so the farm does have livestock. All animals unfortunately do have a smell that comes from them. Flies at the property have been checked and have confirmed are no flies after your departure. Property Owner

    She showed us round the cottage informing us of the best places to visit. She was always around if we needed her. It's a working farm with sheep and herd as our direct neighbours. Little cute lambs too. The hot tub was truly amazing after a day out. Loved it. Relaxing on a farm is truly a great experience. The views were out of this world. Mrs Campbell gave us some freshly laid eggs from her chickens. Lovely and fresh. Anglesey is breathtaking with its gorgeous beaches and hidden ones too. Lovely places to go and eat. My sons went off for a boat ride in Beaumaris which is a lovely seaside town and definitely worth a visit. Crab fishing on the pier. Just remember to take a pack of bacon.

  • "Really great cottage."

    The children loved the farm animals. Only fault was, unclear directions to follow to find the cottage. Any other guests that stay need to look for a sign saying "Bodwarren Cottages " off the main road. Not Bran Goesgoch.

  • "This lovely two storey cottage, is situated right in the centre of a working farm."

    The owners are right on hand to help with any questions or problems that might arise. The farm is right off the beaten track near to the south stacks area of the Holy Island. The directions given are okay except for the 0.7 miles from turning right at the end of Porth Darfach road. Its around 1 1/2 miles before you see the farm sign on the peak of one of the sharp left hand bends. The views can only be described as breath taking - more so if the wind is blowing! It is wise to note that the cottage is 'upside down' that is to say the day to day living and the master bedroom and one bathroom are at the top and two bedrooms and a second bathroom are on the ground floor. The hot tub is lovely to relax in after a day out walking the many beaches, cliffs, and country parks that are all either right on the doorstep or a short drive away. Some beaches exclude dogs from March to the end of September, but we found that there is usually an area of the beach set aside where the dogs can let off. A lot of the pubs are dog friendly. All in all its a wonderful place to stay. Our 3 golden retrievers loved it!

    Plenty big enough for myself and partner, the two children, one dog and two cats. It is well equipped and the sofa and beds are comfortable. The hot tub is an added bonus. The host here is lovely and entertained our 7 year old letting him help feed the lambs, walk her dogs and collect eggs from her chickens. The farm is in a lovely quiet position well away from the road and the only sounds you hear from it are country sounds. Birds singing, lambs bleating and the cows mooing. There is a badger set at the far end of the field that you look out over. Unfortunately I didn't get to see them. In all we had a lovely quiet relaxing holiday and I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone.

The property

This charming detached, stone-built barn conversion is set next to the farmyard, providing an ideal base for families.

With high ceilings and exposed beams, you enter this property via an enclosed garden area and then into a small hallway.

With an upside down layout, from here you will find two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor level, with a further bedroom and a shower room on the first floor.

Also on the first floor is an open plan living area, which is where everyone can gather after a day out to enjoy a warming home-cooked meal and afterwards to relax on the sofa in order to plan what to see and do during the rest of your stay on the wonderful island of Anglesey.

A bonus to staying in this barn conversion is the hot tub in the garden, what better way to unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life than to step in and enjoy the warm, bubbling water.

A delightful Anglesey holiday home.

Bodwarren Farm

Holyhead 1.3 miles. These six lovely properties are set on the owners’ 70 acre working livestock farm, in a rural location, close to the town and ferry port of Holyhead on Anglesey. With stunning sea and mountain views that can be seen from the farm, these holiday homes are ideal for couples, families and friends with a number of attractions and places to visit within easy reach. Y Wennol and Y Wylan offer single-storey accommodation and both sleep two people, whilst Y Barcud and Bran Goesgoch sleep six each. Cysgod y Bugail and Llety'r Bugail are two delightful little shepherd's huts also sleeping two each. All properties share a courtyard area to park cars, and four have an enclosed garden with a lawned area, patio and furniture whilst the two huts provide peaceful decked balconies, a perfect setting to enjoy an alfresco dinner at the end of the day. Although these charming retreats are in quiet location, there’s something for everyone nearby, including a visit to the town of Holyhead which has remains of Roman town walls and forts, a colourful marina, maritime museum, shops and pubs. Holyhead is also a main ferry point for Ireland, so a day trip to Dublin may be on the cards! Also close by is the Breakwater Country Park, a former quarry, from where you may be able to spot seals who visit the Holyhead coast. Just over three miles away is the resort of Trearddur Bay, with its sandy beaches and watersports. Other places of interest are cliff top walks over Holyhead Mountain, and South Stack Lighthouse RSPB Reserve is well worth a visit. All this and much, much more can enjoyed from these welcoming holiday homes.

About the location

HOLYHEAD

Trearddur Bay 3 miles.

The bustling town of Holyhead rests on the North West coast of the Isle of Anglesey, the largest town on the island and perhaps known best for being the main ferry port to Ireland. Steeped in history, the town boasts the remains of Roman town walls and forts, medieval burial chambers and stone village foundations. Explore the Breakwater Country Park, a former quarry, which offers designated walks through the grounds. The park is full of interesting wildlife, most notably the seals who visit the Holyhead coast, and outlines the amazing construction of the world's longest breakwater, some 1.8 miles, which today protects the harbour. Visit the colourful marina with its yachts and tall ships, or the town's maritime museum, with its tales of 100 shipwrecks in the vicinity. Day trips to Ireland can be enjoyed easily from here, with Dublin just 90 minutes away on the fast ferry. With spectacular cliff top walks over Holyhead Mountain, golden sandy beaches at the award winning Trearddur Bay and the Snowdonia National Park just a 20 minute drive away, this is a superb holiday location, at any time of the year.
