  • "This is a lovely renovated property carried out to a good standard."

    However there were a few issues that the property owner should be made aware of….. 1. Shower in main bathroom unable to switch between main head and hand head due to broken connection 2. Its obviously there’s some form of water leak on the ground floor open kitchen / lounge floor as the Lino is lifting along the width of the area and congealing salts on the joint. Maybe there’s an underlying underfloor leak from either the underfloor heating or water table 3. Patio door “door leaf” requires adjustment as difficult to shut. You have to slam for it to align into closed position. If you don’t and leave it, the rain gets in. 4. The skylight’s in-built blind in the main en-suite bedroom is broken, hanging down and you are unable to close to the prevent light coming in 5. On hot sunny day[s] if you needed to open all skylights you can’t as there are two you cannot reach and no aid provided to use. 6. It states you can park up to three cars but in reality you can only park one car in front of the patio doors and allocated bay opposite. You could use the carport if you had a SMART or similar small car. You do have enough space to park two cars right outside the house as during our stay we had the next door neighbour knock on the door asking us to move one car as it impedes them accessing their property. This is because the drop kerb outside the holiday let doesn’t extend right across to the neighbours house and they would have to drive up/down standard high faced kerbs (quite understandable) 7. The property offers a bio-ethanol burner in the downstairs lounge but you cannot use it as there’s no fuel to use or to purchase if you would like to use in lieu of underfloor heating Other than those constructive comments above, a lovely place.

    Shower is now in full working order. Water, during extreme weather, had leaked in through unlocked patio doors which have now been sealed. Skylight has been covered with an opaque covering. Small footstool was in bathroom to stand on to gain access to skylights. Ethanol was in cupboard. There is ample parking for two cars, one directly outside property and one in the allocated bay just opposite. There is also a public car park approximately 200 yards away. There is also a car port which could hold a small car. Property Owner

  • "Great few days had at the property, for the four of us which included two kids (3 & 1yrs)."

    Property is very well laid out and great open plan area downstairs made things homely and easy with the kids. Everything was brand new and fresh/clean. Upstairs, rooms are good/comfy and space well utilised.

    Short walk to Red Wharf Bay and easy access to many other beautiful parts of Anglesey. Local pub and sandwich shop within a few minute's walk from the house. Parking good, wi-fi good, although no mobile signal.

  • "Black out blinds in the bedrooms would be ideal."

    The rooms are very bright & we were woken early each morning, by natural light streaming through the windows... especially in the master bedroom. The front door is difficult to shut & lock. Everything else was perfect. Thank you

The property

Nestled in the quaint village of Pentraeth, Yr Hen Ysgubor is a charming, white-washed cottage just a stone's throw away from the spectacular Isle of Anglesey Coast.

Renovated to a high-standard, this attractive abode offers a restful retreat for family and friends alike.

Make yourself feel right at home as you open up the front door and step inside the contemporary open-plan living space, beautifully styled with a plush velvet sofa and arresting ethanol fire, together creating a wonderful setting for a cosy evening indoors watching movies on the Smart TV.

Take to the stunning navy kitchen to prepare a fantastic feast for loved ones, with the help of the many sleek electrical appliances that rest within, before serving up at the dining table or climbing the stone staircase up to the rear patio for dinner alfresco.

Back inside, you can admire the striking exposed beams as you make your way up the staircase to the first floor and discover three gorgeous bedrooms, each adorned with pretty white furnishings and fresh lines providing a light and airy space to lay your head to rest at the end of the evening.

The bedrooms are made up of a spacious king-size with en-suite shower, a homely double and a peaceful bunk room that's perfect for those travelling with children.

Across the way, a sophisticated bathroom awaits you, whilst a handy cloakroom can be found resting on the ground floor.

When you can just about manage to tear yourself away from this splendid home-away-from-home, be sure to explore the magnificent beaches that line the coast with days spent basking in the sunshine at Red Wharf Bay and Moelfre, The barn is on the route of the Dona Circular Walk down to Red Wharf Bay which is spectacular and not to be missed, or uncover The Lligwy Cromlech and Penmon Point on an unforgettable hike along the coast.

See the idyllic architecture of Penmon Priory, or visit the historical town of Beaumaris where a Victorian Gaol, imposing fortress and Stone Circle await you.

Wander along Beaumaris Pier or take a boat out to sea with a Puffin Island Cruise tour, spotting majestic seals along the way.

Learn of local history at The Menai Bridges Exhibition, or cross on over to the royal town of Caernarfon to see the World Heritage Fortress of Caernarfon Castle, where His Royal Highness Prince Charles was crowned the Prince of Wales in 1969.

Wander the town walls and see the Segontium Roman Fort, or be at one with nature on an incredible day out in Snowdonia National Park, a pleasant drive away.

See the Anglesey Model Village and Transport Museum, or take the children to Pili Palas Nature World, Anglesey Sea Zoo or GreenWood Family Park.

There's plenty to see on Holy Island with South Stack Lighthouse and Elin's Tower a great spot for birdwatching, as well as the picturesque beach of Porth Diana Beach and Porth Diana North Wales Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve.

Live many precious moments with your loved ones on an escape to Yr Hen Ysgubor.

About the location


Red Wharf Bay 2 miles; Benllech 3 miles; Beaumaris 6 miles.

Pentraeth is a small attractive village on the banks of the River Nodwydd on the north-east coast of Anglesey. It has a village church that dates back to the 12th century and is located between Llanddona beach and Red Wharf Bay, which has over 4.5 miles of sandy beach. Red Wharf Bay’s Welsh name is Traeth Coch (Red Beach) and the area is renowned for its glorious sunsets. The bay is very shallow and provides safe bathing, perfect for wonderful family fun, fishing and miles of stunning scenic walks. The large bay attracts a huge number of waterfowl and wading birds, including shell duck, grey plover, purple sandpipers, curlew, oystercatchers and dunlin. Only 6 miles away is the delightful medieval town of Beaumaris which boasts a 13th century moated castle, excellent shops, pubs, restaurants, bistros and museums, as well as a golf course and exciting pleasure boat and sea fishing trips. This is a great location on the east coast of the picturesque Isle of Anglesey, yet only six minutes from the Britannia Bridge to access the mainland.
