  • "We have stayed in this property several times, we go back to it for a number of reasons, we have come to know that the presentation of Glan y Don is always perfect , this is very important to us."

    The position on the banks of the Menai Straits is lovely, it is well placed for visiting many iconic buildings and areas to walk, we find lots of new places every time we visit.

  • "Lovely cottage in a brilliant location, looking straight out onto the Menai Straits."

    Great foody pub just a few doors down and the Thai restaurant 5 mins away is also really good. The cottage had everything we needed for the week and is very modern and comfortable. Y Felinheli is a great location for getting over to Anglesey - Newborough beach, Beaumaris and Penmon point, as well as only being 20 mins into Snowdonia for zip world. Lovely off road cycle from the end of the road into Caernarfon.

  • "We had an amazing weekend at this cottage."

    The views are 10/10 and the only thing that spoilt is was the weather (but you are in North Wales). Ideal spot for nearby activities and with a fantastic pub that serves fantastic food only four doors away....... you cannot go wrong!!! We will most definitely recommend this place to stay and we will be back again for sure!!!

  • "Lovely house."

    Really liked the sea views! The house was very comfortable. As it was sunny and warm when we stayed we were able to take advantage of the fact that we were on the seafront by taking walks along the cycle path to see the boats in the marina nearby. Our toddlers enjoyed the nearby playground. There is a pub serving food close by and the village has an excellent Chinese takeaway. Would recommend this property.
