Reviews

We found the cottage to be convenient to all the places we wished to visit. It was well equipped, comfortable and had the most wonderful views.Joanna from Cardiff - 29th June 2018
We had a fabulous week with my parents. The property is very spacious and mum, who uses a walking frame and wheelchair, found the bathroom and facilities extremely good and very easy to get around. Such a lovely place to stay. The owners are really lovely and extremely helpful. Can’t recommend it enough. Peter from Bedfordshire - 18th June 2018
Lovely property, far exceeds what you expect from a holiday rental. We have rented two fully adapted cottages from Best of Wales. From the start of booking to the holiday everything was easy and well explained and both cottages exceeded our expectations. Our recent visit to Bodyfryd was a return visit as we enjoyed it there so much last year. The cottage was excellent, extra things we requested were provided and the scenery was beautiful. The owner could not have been nicer or more helpful. We will definitely use Best of Wales for any future bookings.Barbara from Lancashire - 21st May 2018
The cottage was perfect for our needs (we were attending a wedding). The owner was very kind. Elizabeth from Berkhamsted - 6th February 2018

Very comfortable. Lovely surroundings and views.

Local Area

This Anglesey self catering cottage is situated in a lovely rural spot, 1 mile from Llanfairpwll on the Isle of Anglesey. The village of Llanfairpwll, or in full, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, has the longest place name in Britain. It translates to: St Mary's Church by the white hazel pool, near the fierce whirlpool with the church of St Tysilio by the red cave.

The cottage offers an ideal base for visiting a range of fascinating local attractions and the castles of Beaumaris in Anglesey and Caernarfon on the mainland are both nearby. Seek out the glorious Blue Flag beaches, enjoy Anglesey's 125 mile coastal path or trek up the famous Snowdon Mountain. Nearby Llanddwyn Island and beach is steeped in history and legend and is closely associated with the Patron Saint for lovers in Wales, Saint Dwynwen.
