  • "Our 2nd stay at this lovely property."

    The property is like a home away from home in a picturesque location. It is very comfortable and spacious and has everything you could need and you can tell that the small details have been considered. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms are a great size. We loved the farm location and our little boy developed a great interest in tractors during our holiday from watching through the windows. The garden is also great and perfect for our children and dogs to play. A generous welcome hamper was also left for us which was a nice touch. Olwen is very helpful and even delivered a non slip bath mat for our children to use during our stay. Another great trip and I hope we will be back for a 3rd time in the future. Thanks again Olwen.

  • "The bungalow lacked nothing, it was warm comfortable and had everything a home needs."

    Everything was clean and in its place, the views were fantastic, waking up some mornings to the sound of cows was so nice and different from home. I could go on and on but in essence a fantastic place to stay and would highly recommend and yes, we will be returning.

  • "Wonderful week in Anglesey."

    Even the wet weather didn’t spoil it. The house is well placed for beautiful beaches (we swam in sea most days) and lovely restaurants. The ship served the most amazing fish stew. The house has everything you need for a home away from home experience. The kitchen is light and airy and had everything you needed to make meals. The rest of the house is beautifully decorated and really homely. Fast broadband- able to sign into Netflix etc on the smart tv. Dedicated office if you needed to work etc. Olwen couldn’t do enough for us. Lovely welcome basket with local produce and fizz with sweets for the kids- very thoughtful! Highly recommend *****

    I cannot speak highly enough of this holiday rental. It is well positioned for the coast and Llangefni for shopping.

  • "The property is very comfortable and spacious, well equipped and its location provides access to the most beautiful dog walks."

    The shower could use a boost and the hose pipe in the garage could do with an upgrade as it leaks too much. Other than that it was very enjoyable and we would like to come back in the future. Thank you for letting us stay in your property.

    Well kitted out with everything that you could possibly need. Very clean with quality fittings. Great location and a perfect base from which all of Anglesey can be accessed. Peaceful location that is just perfect for a holiday getaway. Cynefin is just perfect in every aspect. Olwen is a fantastic host who genuinely makes sure that you have a great stay. Nothing is too much trouble and she is very friendly, helpful and genuine person.

  • "Real home from home, the owner is lovely."

    She checked with us mid stay to make sure all okay. If you want to cook whilst staying here the kitchen is well stocked with pans/equipment. The garage games table kept teenagers off phones. Plenty of storage for bikes etc. Office room was a blessing for bit of unexpected work. Lots of board games and even a few books if you fancy a read. Fantastic second stay for us this year, great additional touches of picnic benches at front and back of property since our Easter break. No matter what age range of family you’ll be pleased with this cottage. Stunning views with all the peace and quiet of being inland. Highly recommend!

  • "We had a fantastic week at Cynefin (Easter holidays)."

    As a family of 6 ranging from 11-75yrs this was definitely the right property choice for all. It was really clean and fresh with a lovely welcome note from the owner. Nice touch having a couple of pints of milk, bottle of wine and some Welsh cakes waiting for us too! Views are stunning, we were lucky with weather and could see the sea from lounge windows and Parys mountain and copper mine trail isn’t too far away. The bungalow is large and really comfortable. Plenty of outside space for teenagers to play football etc even with 2 big cars parked up. My husband had to work a few days and managed fine from the ‘office’ room even with everyone in due to size of bungalow didn’t struggle with background noise on calls. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of pans, Pyrex dishes and pizza trays. We had plenty of space even with all 6 of us in the kitchen area together. The bathroom was great for my elderly parent as only slight step into shower. They also managed easily enough with 2 steps up-to front door. We are already looking to book again and could easily bring our younger nephews as despite being inland, plenty for them to go at with football/snooker/air hockey table in garage. Lots of board games and jigsaws for rainy days too. Garage/game room could easily store enough bikes for all guests. The owner is fabulous, checked in (text) a couple of times and I have no doubt if there had been any issues, they would’ve been sorted out quickly. We left a textbook under a chair and hadn’t missed it until the owner found it. It was quickly posted back to us, which was great. Can’t praise this rental enough!

The property

Dulas 1.9 miles.

Resting in Pencraigwen near Dulas, Anglesey, is Cynefin, a wonderful bungalow, welcoming seven guests and two well-behaved dogs.

Enjoying countryside views and a contemporary interior, whilst a short journey away from the delights of North Wales, the property offers the ideal base for a family break, near both the coast and country.

Park up on the private driveway, enveloped by the wrap-around garden and vistas over the neighbouring fields, before stepping into the property, firstly arriving at the homely sitting room; here you can relax after a day full of adventure in front of the Smart TV and electric fire.

Continue on to the kitchen/diner, well-equipped with all expected appliances and a neighbouring utility, easing your self-catered stay.

Box off any work in the study before partaking in a competitive evening of table football, located in the garage.

Rest your eyes in one of three well-appointed bedrooms, including a king-size, a double, and a family room.

Guests will have access to a sleek bathroom, offering both a bath and shower, and a cloakroom for convenience.

Awaken to the sunrise across Pencraigwen’s countryside, before kickstarting your itinerary, starting with a hike towards Mynydd Parys, a visit to Llyn Alaw, or a stroll along Porth y Môr shoreline.

Travelling on to Beaumaris, a favoured area upon the isle, opt for a tour of Beaumaris Castle, discover the heritage-rich attraction of Beaumaris Gaol and Court, or enjoy a day at the seaside at Beaumaris Pier, where you can devour a bag of fish and chips whilst watching the tide come in.

Within the county you'll also have the chance to visit Pili Palas Nature World, and Plas Newydd House and Gardens, both family-friendly attractions, before crossing to the mainland before crossing to the mainland, ready to hike across Snowdonia National Park.

Experience all of this at Cynefin.
