Description

Enjoy a truly warm welcome at this interesting cottage adjoining the owner's C17 farmhouse, with wonderful views across the Menai Straits to Caernarfon and Snowdonia from the garden and sun room. Situated in a rural location just outside the village of Brynsiencyn, 5 miles to the famous village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll.., 7 miles to the stunning Newborough beach and around 7 miles to the university city of Bangor.

‘Foel farm just outside the village was very popular with my children when they where younger! It has a lovely friendly atmosphere where you can feed and hold the animals, go for a fun tractor ride or short, led pony ride. There is also a café and chocolate workshop where you can see chocolates being made’ from Jacky, our local property manager

The Cottage: is full of character, mostly single storey with a few steps inside. Eira, the owner who lives next door, is on hand to help you make your holiday run a smoothly as possible. The cottage is dog friendly and an insulated kennel is available on request (the owner breeds cocker spaniels.) Central heating and plenty of parking. An open crog loft, with steep stairs leading up, provides an extra bedroom with a single bed.

The Living Room: this open-plan living/dining room and kitchen has been renovated with charm, using local reclaimed materials. There is a feature fireplace with a woodburning stove (initial logs supplied) and Freeview TV/DVD/CD and WiFi. There is a dining area with table and chairs.

The Kitchen: the well-equipped, handmade kitchen has a dishwasher, fridge, freezer, electric cooker and microwave.  Guests also have access to a shared washing machine and tumble dryer in a utility room. The kitchen is well set up for home cooking with plenty of pans and cooking equipment.

The Sun Room: adjoining the living room is this lovely sun room with views of fields to one side and across the garden on the other. There is a selection of smart conservatory furniture and an electric heater for the cooler days.

There are two pretty ground floor bedrooms and the crog loft.

Bedroom 1: the double bedroom looks over the garden, has a built-in wardrobe and lots of extras such as a radio and bath robes.

Bedroom 2: is a twin room with a garden view, again with a built-in wardrobe and lots of extras.

The Crog loft: has an additional single bed and is accessed up a steep ladder so not suitable for young children.

Brynsiencyn is a small village in an excellent location for exploring some of Anglesey’s best beaches and historical sites. Just outside the village is an ancient ritual site as old as the Egyptian pyramids, which is close to some of the tallest standing stones in Wales dating from the Bronze Age. The vast Llanddwyn beach and Newborough Forest, with its cycling and walking trails, is a short drive away, as is the popular Anglesey Sea Zoo and the National Trust's Plas Newydd.

Stunning cottage in beautiful setting. Ideal location to explore AngleseyMrs Paula Lynette Jones - 30th July 2018
Lovely quirky cottage overlooking Menai Straights, fantastic garden with BBQ we really enjoyed our stay everything you could possibly want was there, Dog enjoyed it too, enclosed garden so good if you have a younger dog, ours was just quite content to lie in shade as it was very hot when we were there.
