  • "Lovely break at Dol Fraint ."

    The only issue we had was lack of information regarding the heating and there were a few Luke warm showers . The house was clean and perfect for a family get together and I would recommend it and would love to return.

    Thank you very much for your feedback - we will add information about the heating for any future guests. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back any time! Property Owner

  • "Dol Fraint had everything we needed for our family (8 adults, 1 child) Christmas break."

    A very well equipped house in a beautiful location, Dol Fraint exceeded our expectations and we had a very comfortable stay. The Christmas decorations and welcome pack (including homemade mince pies) were a thoughtful touch. Great communication from the property owner whenever I had a question. I would definitely recommend this property. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    We are so glad you chose to stay with us for Christmas and that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you very much for your feedback we very much appreciate it! Property Owner

    Everything you needed was provided and the welcoming basket of goodies was delicious. The only minor problem was the toilet and shower in the main upstairs bathroom was slow to drain. However with 3 alternative bathrooms this wasn't a big issue even with a party of 9

    Thank you very much for your lovely review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Thank you for drawing our attention to the maintenance needed - all sorted now. We hope you choose to return to Anglesey ond day. Property Owner

    The views, the house and the facilities were perfect for us. It was clean and fresh when we arrived and we soon settled in. We will definitely recommend Dol Fraint to others! Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your kind words, it means a lot to a small family business like ours! We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you choose to return one day! Property Owner

  • "The place was lovely."

    We had a really nice time in beautiful Anglesey. The photos did not do justice to the spacious house/ the views. A few maintenance issues you may want to deal with which didn’t spoil our enjoyment. The main ones are: (1) broken blind in twin en-suite (2) broken toilet in master bedroom (3) dishwasher not functioning properly (the tablet seems to emerge unused) (4) toilet seat in downstairs bathroom (5) chair in lounge (armrest comes off)

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for drawing our attention to the maintenance issues, we will get them sorted! Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our family stay at Dol Fraint, the house is very spacious and well-appointed with more than enough room for everyone."

    We enjoyed playing with the grandchildren in the back garden with the Snowdonia Mountains as a backdrop; the occasional distant train passing by was an additional point of interest for the grandchildren. The house is very well located with easy access onto the A5 expressway from Star making it easy to travel by car to many of the local attractions and the shops of Llanfair Pwll are relatively close by car.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are very glad that you enjoyed your family holiday with us and hope you come back to visit again. Diolch! Property Owner

    A blessing in disguise this turned out to be. The house is amazing! Very spacious and fully equipped. It has everything included you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. A lovely safe garden with amazing views and the weather was on our side for us to enjoy it. Would 100% recommend and would love to return.

    Lots of room for parking and ample outside furniture with all bedding and towels provided. We were hoping to use the bbq provided in the garage but weren’t too confident on connecting the gas so that would be the only thing to check if you were planning to use! We would definitely return - thank you!

    The house was spacious, clean and well equipped. The cake that was left for us as we arrived was also delicious!! The garden was amazing with lovely views.

  • "Dol Fraint is a beautiful house in a very convenient and scenic location."

    We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the house and the very high standard of the fixtures and fittings. The photos of the house on Sykes website don't really do it justice. The view from the back of the house was beautiful - again much better than we were expecting. The only slight issue was that we had to stagger shower times as 7 people needing showers in the morning quickly drained the hot water. Using the boost on the heating system and having quick showers sorted this. Would definitely stay again, hopefully when there aren't two storms in the same week!

  • "The house was lovely."

    Lots of space for everyone and not cluttered. Very clean too. View from the garden was spectacular. Would return for another holiday there tomorrow. The only thing we would like to see is more information about what to do with the refuse and recycling as it was not clear. Plus user manuals for the washing machine & dishwasher in the information pack at the house would have been useful. Other than that it was a lovely house. Thank you.

  • "Dol Fraint was a lovely spacious house with spectacular views."

    The photos don’t do the property justice, it’s massive. The kitchen was well equipped and the bbq was a bonus, might be useful to list it on the features so people know it’s there. The location was very central, easy to get to anywhere on the Island. The only thing that would improve it would be a hot tub on the patio to sit in and soak up the views.

  • "The property was lovely."

    The kitchen was well equipped, although there could have been a few more serving dishes and jugs (milk/cream and gravy) and there was not a large bowl to be found. The house was very clean and well presented. The Christmas decorations were lovely and made it feel very homely. The heating adjustment took a bit of working out (in the bedrooms) but the rest of the house worked fine. I would recommend the property to other members of the family and friends.

About the location


Menai Bridge 2 miles; Beaumaris 6 miles.

Affectionately known by the locals as Llanfair PG, the Anglesey village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrnd robwllllantysiliogogogoch, also known by its shortened name of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll has the longest place name in Europe. It was artificially named back in 1860 as a publicity stunt for the railway station and translates from Welsh as "St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the fierce whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave". Situated close to the Menai Straits, just off the Britannia Bridge, Llanfair PG has much to offer families. After having your photo taken next to the village nameplate at the railway station, head into the popular visitors centre for local tourist information. A short walk past the octagonal Toll House, towards Menai Bridge, will bring you to the Marquis of Anglesey statue and column which, for a small fee, you can climb the 115 steps to the top for superb views of the countryside and coastline. Nelson’s Monument can be easily reached on the banks of the Menai Straits, passing St Mary’s Church on the way. With several good pubs with restaurants, craft and gift shops and cafes, plus the beautiful Anglesey coastline within walking distance, there is plenty to entertain you all year round.
