  • “Location exceeded expectations.”

    Facilities good (even the kitchen equipment, though there were a few things lacking), beds comfy, sound system didn't work and TV only via wifi. Generally a brilliant place to stay.

The property

Escape to the magnificent coast of North Wales with a stay at Bwthyn Siliwen (Old Bath House).

Overlooking the Menai Strait, this spectacular holiday home can be accessed by a 4x4 when the tide is out and is always accessible by foot, making this a truly unique setting for any self-catering stay.

If you don't have a 4x4, don't panic, the friendly owners are more than happy to arrange for transport to the home upon your arrival, allowing you to sit back and take in the views as you approach this characterful cottage.

Leave your bags by the door as you step inside this homely abode and are greeted by a sociable dining room boasting a fabulous woodburning stove, a wonderful space to gather with loved ones as you delight in a delicious bottle of wine and begin to discuss all of your upcoming adventures exploring the area.

Allow the chef of the group to show off their culinary talents as they take to the sleek electric oven and hob that decorate the chic and contemporary kitchen, and prepare a hearty home-cooked meal for all to enjoy.

Retire for the evening to the peaceful sitting room, allowing yourself to fall onto the sumptuous sofa with friends and scan the Smart TV for all of your favourite shows.

Continuing through the ground floor, a sophisticated bathroom with gorgeous Victorian tiling and a smart white bath with overhead shower awaits you, whilst a few steps away both a well-appointed double-size and a quirky triple bunk room offer a restful space for guests with limited mobility.

Up on the first floor, one beautiful king-size bedroom and one double-size with an abundance of storage space are served by a light and airy shower room, right across the way.

Spend warm summer days out in the garden, basking in the sunshine as you dine alfresco and watch as the tide surrounds you, a real spot of tranquillity.

When the tide goes out, be sure to grab your walking boots and waterproof coats as you explore the luscious open fields of Eithinog North Wales Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve and Treborth Botanic Garden.

Cross Pont Menai Bridge to the Isle of Anglesey, spending the afternoon in the town of Menai Bridge with a fun trip out to sea on the RibRide, before wandering the Belgian promenade to Church Island to see the picturesque St Tysilio's Church.

Continue across to the town of Beaumaris and discover the Victorian prison of Beaumaris Goal, the grand remains of Beaumaris Castle, or take a boat out to sea for an unforgettable tour of Puffin Island.

Visit The Old Court House Museum and Beaumaris Pier or spend the day in the town of Caernarfon, home to the grand World Heritage Fortress of Caernarfon Castle and the towns historical walls.

Those travelling with children will relish in an entertaining day out at Pili Palas Nature World, GreenWood Family Park and the Piggery Pottery, whilst outdoor enthusiasts can venture into the mountainous terrains of Snowdonia National Park for a breath-taking hike to the peaks of Snowdon, Y Fronllwyd and Tryfan.

Take in the awe-inspiring scenery on a journey through the countryside with Llanberis Lake Railway and see Ceunant Mawr Waterfall, or be amazed by Dinorwic Slate Quarry, a must-see during your stay.

Closer to home, you can delight in dinner and drinks on Garth Pier at the property owner's pub and restaurant, or head into the heart of Bangor for a spot of shopping at the supermarket.

With all this to look forward to and so much more, it's little wonder Bwthyn Siliwen is the perfect choice for your next escape to Wales.
