    “Penfor was, for us, a little piece of Paradise amidst all the stress and confusion of the Covid pandemic.”

    We know Church Bay very well having holidayed with the family several times but we had never found this little jewel before. This time, necessarily, it was just the two of us with the two dogs. Huge windows presenting views over the fields and out over the sea to Holyhead and Ireland on the far horizon which could not have been more stunning.

    We know Church Bay very well having holidayed with the family several times but we had never found this little jewel before. This time, necessarily, it was just the two of us with the two dogs. Huge windows presenting views over the fields and out over the sea to Holyhead and Ireland on the far horizon which could not have been more stunning. We were blessed by a week of glorious weather so sunrises and sunsets provided so much joy. We spent hours in the ‘sun room’ just watching the ferries and smaller boats coming and going, the animals in the surrounding fields doing their thing. The exterior of the cottage was a bit jaded, paintwork in need of attention, but internally we thought it charming, well maintained and provided everything we needed. There is no dishwasher but I would gladly trade mine for the view from the kitchen sink! The main bedroom is a long way from the bathroom and the other twin bedroom - maybe not an ideal arrangement if you had small children with you. You might want a baby monitor because you would not hear them otherwise! We opted to sleep in the twin room for convenience so cannot comment on the comfort of the double bed. The single level accommodation and mainly hard floors provided practical, manageable space for us with the dogs who enjoyed the holiday as much as we did. The utility/boot room by the entrance was perfect for outdoor gear and dog supplies. We didn’t use the washing machine or freezer (which wasn’t turned on we discovered). Also no WiFi without a personal hotspot, though mobile reception was good. Outside there are wonderful, natural grounds with banks and hedges surrounding and plenty of places to sit. We could bring the car right to the door for loading. The property is not overlooked at all so made for the perfect getaway.

The property

A detached character cottage in an elevated and alluring semi-rural and coastal location, set within its own grounds, enjoying stunning, far-reaching sea views extending towards Holyhead Island and on a clear day Ireland, in the popular Church Bay hamlet on the north west coast of Anglesey.

Located just a short stroll to the sandy Blue Flag beach and Anglesey Coastal Path, this wonderful cottage offers cosy and homely accommodation, perfect for a family, friends or just a couple.

The cottage is approached through a gated entrance onto a winding driveway that passes the Grade II listed windmill and granary, which gives this cottage its unique location.

There is ample off road parking and the driveway is set amidst a verdant lawned area that displays a vibrant range of exotic plants, shrubs, bushes and trees.

This delightful cottage offers well-proportioned accommodation which is all on the ground floor, and some great character attributes such as exposed beams, stonework, quarry tiled flooring, stripped wood floors and sash windows.

Inside this wonderful cottage there is an airy kitchen with dining area and a welcoming sitting room, where you can relax and unwind after an energetic day exploring the delights on offer in the local area, with added atmosphere and warmth from an open fire.

French doors open to the studio room with a sofa bed, adding some flexibility to the sleeping arrangements, but it’s the picture window with the most stunning view that will inspire the artist amongst you, or simply enjoy some quiet time and finish that book!

Two comfy bedrooms, one with a king-size double bed and the other with two single beds, together with the bathroom complete your holiday accommodation.

The attractive front and rear gardens, together with the added benefit of a rear terrace that extends along the breadth of the property, and provides a superb vantage point from which to enjoy the amazing countryside and coastal views, extending towards the renowned Church Bay.

The views are breathtaking and the sunsets even more so.

The gardens and views provide the perfect setting for alfresco dining or just enjoy the peace, tranquillity and relaxing ambience here over a glass of your favourite drink, chat long into the evening, and with very little light pollution, star gaze to your heart’s content.

Church Bay, celebrated for its lovely beach, the award-winning Wavecrest Café, as well as the marvellous Lobster Pot Restaurant and the striking Church of St Rhuddlad, provides the ideal base from which to explore further afield.

Enjoy the wonderful scenery, the Anglesey Coastal Path can be easily accessed or visit the NT’s Plas Newydd mansion.

Alternatively, if you’re really feeling energetic, walk over 400 cliff steps down to South Stack Lighthouse.

The medieval Beaumaris Castle is a short drive away and is well worth a visit and the nearby port town of Holyhead with its marina is ideal for sailing enthusiasts, you could even take a day trip to Dublin!

With its stunning location and homely atmosphere this lovely cottage will provide a great base for your break away or holiday any time of the year.
