  • "This property could be totally amazing if a few things were sorted out and some maintenance done."

    The windows were very dirty (also noted by the previous renters) the kitchen needs a deep clean (we had to vacuum and wipe out the cupboards as they were filthy). There were not enough wine glasses so we bought 6 more and left them at the property. There were no mattress protectors on the beds which is extremely unhygienic and some of the mattresses need changing as they are past it. The curtains in the lounge are hanging off their hooks also previously mentioned by other renters. The on/off switch on the dishwasher on the island is broken and you have to stick your finger in the gap to switch the machine on (not sure how safe this is). Those are all the gripes but we were a family of 3 children and 12 adults and we had a great stay. The photos do not do the house justice. The boot room was fantastic to put coats and walking boots and having a large utility room was a real blessing. There is plenty of space for people to go off and relax and the kitchen is amazing as its huge and so light with windows on both sides. The views are stunning and the kids loved the hot tub which was super warm. Thank you for the Prosecco and welsh cakes left for us which was a lovely touch. All in all a great stay just needs a bit more love and care put into the property.

  • "We have just returned from a great weekend away at Hen Hafod, the house is perfect for socialising and accommodating the 14 of us (age range 2-70)."

    The location is beautiful and there are stunning views from the property. Unfortunately we did hit a few snags which meant we couldn’t justify a 5/5. We barely had hot water the whole weekend, Tony was very helpful and sent someone to sort it which helped for that evening but it was back to tepid showers again after that. It also made cleaning dishes unbearable as the water was freezing from the kitchen tap! The cleanliness/maintenance we scored a bit lower as we felt it lacked a bit, the windows weren’t very clean, glasses/mugs had water in (perhaps from previous guests?). Maintenance - it took us a good 5/10 minutes to open the front door, the key was so stiff but this could have been down to how cold it was! A few of the windows are leaking in the main social area and one of the bathrooms smelt so damp we had to keep the window open the whole time which wasn’t ideal as it was freezing! However apart from not having hot water these things did not affect our stay at all, we really enjoyed the hot tub and games room and if the hot water got sorted we would 100% go back!

  • "HenHafod is a lovely holiday property for a large family gathering."

    It is spacious with open country views towards the mountains. The hot tub was a huge bonus and enjoyed by the family. The games room provided additional entertainment although there wasn’t a full set of pool balls. The property was well equipped and clean. We appreciated the complementary Welsh cakes,tea and Prosecco which was a nice touch. However toilet rolls,hand soap and dish washer tablets would have been helpful. We would like to thank the owner for their hospitality and would definitely recommend HenHafod

  • "We had a lovely stay at Hen Hafod, the whole family stayed from aged 5 to 75."

    Everyone agreed the house had everything we needed. The various bedroom options meant we could accommodate everyone and the various spaces meant we had space to read a book or watch the TV or the kids place games. The outdoor space was fantastic and not expected. Even with the wet weather we were able to enjoy the gardens and hot tub. The views were amazing and plenty of spaces to sit and enjoy the view. Overall we all enjoyed cooking and eating together as a family and enjoying the open plan living. We had a minor issue with being unable to close an outdoor door and some doors would not lock. A quick call to Tony who came out the same day to secure them for us. The bathrooms were great and the large shower rooms fantastic. We had a child with us with limited mobility and he enjoyed the layout of the property with only a couple of steps. We all felt that the bedrooms were lacking storage shelves/drawers and some rooms need a chest of drawers especially the family bedroom. Wardrobes look nice but no one wants to hang lots of little people clothes on hangers. We did notice one wardrobe smelled awful inside so we didn't use that at all. Overall the house was tidy and clean on arrival. Just a few maintenance jobs such as missing towel hooks in bathrooms and a change of furniture in our opinion. We all enjoyed the house so much we booked again for next year before we left. Thank you for the welcome gifts which were consumed on the first evening.

    This was our 2nd visit, the house and area it's in is great, only problem from last year and the same complaint is no maintenance hasnt been done I did this review last year and said bedroom doors to garden either wont open or wont lock there is a towel in a cupboard in toilet that stinks been there since last year, think its covering a leak, doors to quadrant wont lock, hot tub cover doesnt lock down and was broken on the top when we got there, I know the place is booked up all year but surely they have to find time to do these small repairs, I will say thanks for coming and changing the water in the hot tub for us and for coming and changing some bulbs also games room needs some attention especially the pool table, these are mainly small jobs that need to be done but the house is fabulous for families there was 14 of us and I would definitely go again

  • "We had a fabulous time at Hen Hafod!"

    16 of us visited for the weekend and were not disappointed. The living space is super, large seating area with dining table, alongside a spacious kitchen with outdoor seating on both sides. Even though it rained the whole weekend we did get a break in the weather for a couple of hours so we drove to the Oyster Catcher, beach front bar for some drinks, food and a walk along the beach, roughly 20min drive. Worth the trip if you want an afternoon out the house. The hot tub is a great addition to the outside seating area with amazing views. The beds are comfortable and good showers too. We would book again :) Only two things to feedback - some more cooking utensils would be great when you're cooking and serving for 16 and the postcode takes you to the wrong address, drive back out and take a left, not even a minute drive and you'll see the mirror on the wall as the owner has stated, take that left past a couple of houses and follow the road up taking a right at the fork. You do think you're on the wrong track as you couldnt turn around in a car but keep going and the house is up on the hill to get those fabulous views!

    Lovely welcome basket of prosecco, milk etc waiting for us. Rooms were excellent, our family of 11 fitted in easily, 3 teenagers and 2 x 11 year olds found plenty to amuse themselves leaving us 6 adults time to chill. Excellent kitchen facilities, lounge area was amazing, and inner courtyard was a lovely chilled space. Children loved all outdoor space and amenities, and hot tub was a hit with everyone. Such a fab time, kids even asked if we can go again!

  • "What a fantastic place, we got lost so glad we arrived in daytime."

    Such a quiet rural location with spectacular views. Underfloor heating keeps the whole place hot which i loved, but was too hot for others. Can't please everyone. Everything we needed was there for our weekend away. There were 14 of us and was a massive amount of space. As the bungalow is in a square with a courtyard in the middle, you can walk the entire bungalow. The bedrooms are nowhere near the living area (Party room, we called it) so you could go to bed early and not be disturbed. Plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses etc. Towels were lovely and big and fluffy. Beds were super comfy too. Great property will definitely be returning. Perfect location.

    The views are incredible and the house was simply stunning; if there was an option to vote that it was even better in person that the listing suggested, I would have selected that option! The house was so well equipped with everything we could possible need. It was great for chilling out with the family, enjoying the local area for a walk, playing sports on the grounds, sharing group meals together and having a little celebration on the Saturday night. We were staying as a family to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday so wanted somewhere special and hen hafod was the perfect place. I couldn’t recommend this beautiful, luxurious, comfortable property enough. Thank you for an amazing trip!

  • "An absolutely beautiful property in an excellent location."

    Our stay ran smoothly and we all had an excellent family weekend here. Great access to local shops and Beaumaris and Red Wharf Bay were only a 10 minute drive away. Directions were clear for finding the property. We all found it, even in the dark! The hot tub was an excellent feature which we all enjoyed! We feel a couple of small touches would have made this stay better, such as a toilet roll in each bathroom, maybe some logs/kindling for the fire and some manuals to help work some of the appliances. There’s a couple of maintenance jobs to do such as securing some toilet seats and reattaching the towel holder in one of the bathrooms. These however are just small issues which didn’t effect our overall stay. We would love to return to this property. Thank you.

The property

Set in 10 acres of land and surrounded by 50 acres of Wetlands and Boardwalks in Talwrn near Llangefni, Anglesey is this bespoke, oak framed conversion of Hen Hafod.

The property enjoys a rich history in Anglesey, as the original building dated back to the 13th century whilst also enjoying a rural setting and sitting above a site of special scientific interest; making for an ideal base for a multi-generational family or group of friends to explore this part of Wales.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by handy off-road parking for at least 8 cars.

The property's interior is truly stunning, and you will notice this immediately upon entry, thanks to the oak accents and glazing throughout.

After hanging your things in the entrance hall, take some time to admire the property's unique design, with the building wrapping around an attractive, central courtyard, which can be seen from all angles.

Continue to the beautifully decorated open-plan living space, with the vaulted ceilings and exposed beams making the space a bright and charming spot to unwind in.

The sitting area has been designed with relaxation in mind, with ample, plush seating settled in front of the Smart TV and woodburning stove.

Progress through the L-shaped space to find an impressive kitchen that offers ample appliances, including double electric ovens, and two dishwashers, along with two kitchen islands, so the entire group can enjoy sumptuous meals during their stay.

When a delectable meal has been whipped up, enjoy it as a quick bite at the breakfast bars or settle down for a feast with all the family at the dining area.

In the evening, enjoy some entertainment in the second sitting room, or in the games room, with its table tennis and pool table.

When sleep calls, choose between six fabulous bedrooms to savour a well-needed rest in, with one being a super-king-size that is not only zip/linked for your sleeping arrangements, but enjoys its own sitting area, along with another tastefully furnished super-king-size (zip/link), a king-size enjoying an en-suite shower room and a family room boasting a super-king-size, adjoining bunk bed and en-suite bathroom; the bathroom contains a show-stopping, floating bath that is perfect for a late-night soak!

Completing the bedrooms are a double room, and a double bunk room that are ideal for the kids.

You can also find a fantastic bathroom with quirky, colourful tiling that will leave you spoilt for choice when it comes to getting ready for the day ahead, thanks to its bath and separate walk-in shower.

Concluding the property is a convenient utility offering laundry facilities.

Make the most of the summer months and make your way out to the delightful courtyard with a book in hand, or venture out to the spacious garden which not only offers an array of seating options but a luxurious hot tub.

Get to know your surroundings and explore the Cors Bodeilio National Nature Reserve, where birdwatching and hikes can be enjoyed, before continuing to Llangefni to find your amenities, an esteemed art gallery, Oriel Môn, as well as The Dingle Nature Reserve.

Spend some time on the coast and visit Benllech, a large village boasting a sandy beach, where you can partake in surfing and sailing, before stopping in the Wendon Cafe for a spot of sea view dining.

Continue to Red Wharf Bay, where St David's Leisure offers a spa for you to relish some pampering in, before enjoying a pint at the beachside Tavern on the Bay or simply sunbathing on the golden sands.

Anglesey is home to a plethora of sights to see, so be sure to embark on the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path to see as many as possible, from the picturesque settlements of Beaumaris and Penmon, to Amlwch and Holyhead.
