Details of the self catering cottages are supplied in PDF format so that they can be viewed easily and quickly.

Melin y Bont

Stand out from the crowd at this bolthole, just a flip flop from the sandy beaches and cafes at Rhosneigr. Perfect for jolly gatherings, this stunning Grade Two windmill is deeply comfortable for families and couples too and with heart stopping views and is fully worthy of its magnificent setting. Dogs are invited!

Step into four storeys of light filled tranquillity via steps up to the staging decking that wraps around the windmill. Here you will find a generous open-plan living space with a hand-made curved kitchen... it's 'wow' from the moment you walk in. The symphony of thick, rustic boards, cast iron radiators, rough painted stone walls and modern hi-tech luxury works well. Amidst soaring beams is a little viewing window and French doors opening onto the decking outside. Carry out a breakfast tray with coffee and breathe in the views over farmland and towards the sea which are seriously beautiful! Breakfasts will never be the same again. Or dine at the large table in the open-plan space and then retreat to the comfy pastel coloured armchairs. The galley kitchen is close to hand, well-lit and equipped it has everything you’ll need to refuel rampaging offspring and their parents.

A beautifully crafted wooden staircase is ready to wind you upstairs to three beautifully considered bedrooms. First is the double bedroom, a delicious nest amid original features. A swish bathroom sits neatly next to it within the curved walls. The stairs narrows upwards to a twin bedroom dressed with pastel colours so you can sleep peacefully on perfectly ironed white cotton under the chunky beam. A bathroom is around the curved corner. You get white walls to soak up the light and fantastic views of the rolling countryside. Up again and saving the best until last, go into a tangle of timbers to the lookout with its wild views all the way across fields for miles. Here is a perfect lofty retreat with a double bed and massive beams spanning above - this is the place to be. Holing up in bad weather is sheer pleasure here. For the finer days, the balcony is a treat for morning coffee or a glass of something special.

The hard working Windmill machinery from the early days of 1825 lies below in the basement and provides a hub too for the modern working aspects of the Windmill. A washing machine sits ready for the beach soaked clothes and wet suits can linger to dry. It has direct access to the outside garden so sandy toes can be sorted out before heading upwards.

The Windmill setting is magical: a vast sky hangs overhead, cows graze in the fields and the sea in the distance beckons. Kids and dogs will love free-ranging in the large fenced garden with the wildflowers. Grown-ups can fire up the barbecue and enjoy a Sundowner.

If you'd like to stay for less than a week, or to start your holiday on a different day (out of peak holiday season) then do get in touch as we will try to accommodate you - we are often more flexible than the website options are!


Penrhyn Halen

Penrhyn Halen is situated in a beautifully quiet, rural location between the villages of Hermon and Aberffraw. This fantastic farmhouse sleeps 14 and is great for family reunions and large gatherings. Even when full it feels spacious. Open the front door and hang your coats ready to really enjoy yourselves. The games room greets you as you come in - a full sized pool table and plenty of games to choose from, something for everyone. Just off the games room is the downstairs cloakroom and a large utility room with washing machine and dryer.

Straight through to a small hall to enter the first of 2 sitting rooms. This one is casual and packed full of games, a TV/DVD player and overlooking the garden with large sofas and a beanbag to flop onto. A great place for children to congregate and make as much noise as they want.

Across the hall is an enormous farmhouse kitchen with a long table that seats 14 comfortably. There is also a smaller table should the children wish to branch off and have their own party - or perhaps you'd like to lay all the food on here ready to party. The kitchen is perfectly adaptable for large gatherings, just like the rest of the house. Open the enormous American fridge and pack it full of goodies ready to spoil one another at meal times - room for a bottle of fizz or three, celebrations or not you are on holiday and deserve it! With a full sized upright freezer you can prepare many of the meals beforehand so that everyone has time off when they get here. Turn on the stereo and turn up the music then open the French Windows to the garden - this room helps take the party outside on fine days.

Cross the large tiled hall to the more formal sitting room where adults can congregate round the open fire and catch up on all the news. Party games, movie nights, celebrations or just time together this is a great room to relax in. With huge windows onto the garden to allow the light to flood in.

There is a porch area by the more formal sitting room - this can be accessed from outside and houses a large BBQ. Time off from cooking and an art form all of its own - the family BBQ.

Up the formal stairs to the bedrooms - sleepy heads or time to change after a fun day at the beach, either way the rooms are large and there is plenty of storage space.

There are three master bedrooms with double beds and en-suite bathrooms. Each has masses of wardrobe and chest of drawers space. Further along the hall is another twin room with an en-suite bathroom - with enormous windows that look out onto the spacious garden. Light floods in all the rooms making you feel energised when you wake up - ready for another fun day ahead. Down the hall are three twin rooms - begging for midnight feasts and whispers of the adventures the morning brings. Off to Aberffraw Beach or further along to Rhosneigr Beach - time to learn to windsurf or laugh about all the times you fell off trying! Sandy toes, sandcastle competitions, ice creams galore - the days ahead packed full of exciting things to do.

There is a large bathroom for these twin rooms to share - and with a bath and separate shower there is no excuse for not washing off the day!


Tyn Towyn

A pretty, welsh whitewashed cottage tucked away neatly in the sand dunes with the sea as its neighbour, what a little slice of heaven. Park up and marvel at the magnificent views. Fling open a beach blue door to a warm, open-plan family space - the real heart of the cottage, high-ceilinged with a comfy large sofa and a log-burner. The kitchen is small but fully equipped and commands incredible views through both windows. Stare out by the kitchen sink as the waves crash onto the shore- who needs dishes - just gaze. With incredible local produce to choose from and views savoured, you will soon be sitting at the cute dining table tucking into some much deserved delights.

Small but sweet, the waves breaking on the sandy beach below can lull you to sleep in the bunk room for two. Next door is another small and uncluttered bedroom with a double bed. Let the stars twinkle through open shutters and fall softly asleep.

Wander along to the bathroom off the living space and again see the most incredible views along the way! A bath with electric shower over is a sanctuary after a hard salty beach day. There is a heated towel rail to ensure your fluffy towels are kept as happy as you!

Step out to Rhosneigr's chic restaurants, hike the coastal path, whizz over waves on a windsurfer, fish for your supper, stroll to the beach. Bliss!



Secluded, sweet, cosy... brilliant for families, couples, walkers and dogs. Immerse yourself in views and total silence - fields all around and a maze of walking paths on the doorstep. The beach is less than half a mile away.

A winding lane sweeps through the sandy grass by Aberffraw estuary up to Pandy, a charming Welsh white-washed cottage with thick walls set next to lush views. Over the garden gate is a huge wildlife-rich nature reserve of reed beds, fields and some woodland - a privileged spot from which to hear the birds sing.

Step through the door and into a lovely feeling of homeliness. The open plan living and kitchen space is airy and bright, with everything new including the floor! Great views over the countryside to Aberffraw greet you as you make breakfast. The wood burning stove throws out heat after the long walks and seaside paddles. A double bedroom in serene pastels greys and pinks and a smart, bright twin room are inviting with country views and comfy beds. The bathroom with bath and shower over is neatly to the point.

You're brilliantly placed for exploring coast and country: the Anglesey Coastal Path is less than a mile. The area is rich in opportunities for fun: riding, walking, sailing, surfing, fishing, painting, seal-watching, cycling and more. Guests that need faster action can have two for the price of one tickets to Trac Mon up the road. This short stroll takes you to Aberffraw beach, next to a quiet village and a good pub and local shop. Down the road are plenty of sandy beaches and then Rhosneigr, a perfect hub of a place with bespoke cafes and shops right by the beach too!

Come home to dine in your own outdoor space with barbecue, picnic bench, all lovely and secluded. Best of all is the little summer house with four chairs and table. Perfect for a quiet beer and a gaze over the reeds to watch nature at play.



A white washed, traditional Welsh cottage perched on the edge of the sand dunes right by the beaches.

Salty toes are a must if you stay here. Located right by sandy dunes, the beaches are all tantalisingly close. Porth Tyn Towyn is a four minute stroll away along the secret path from Bodwarren. This is a beach retreat for laid-back guests between the road to Aberffraw and the sea (if you're looking for mod cons and manicured perfection you won't find it here). The cottage is a compact and comfortable nook, brilliantly placed for beachcombing, walking and for dogs.r over is a sanctuary after a hard salty beach day. There is a heated towel rail to ensure your fluffy towels are kept as happy as you!

Step into a sitting room with a plump sofa positioned in front of a wood-burner generously supplied with logs. There's a simple, well equipped kitchen with views over the fields to gaze out whilst cooking. If you'd rather head out for dinner, the much-loved The Oyster Catcher is only a two-minute drive around the corner. Or in fine weather enjoy a glass of wine (or two!) in the sunny garden at the back. A small and simple double room has a brass bedstead and an elegant charm. The twin room houses bunk beds and is compact. The bathroom has a bath for a long soak and shower over. Penlon is next door (semi-detached) and can be booked to combine family stays and garden suppers together.

Rhosneigr is not far with the award winning Broad Beach (Traeth Llydan). There is sailing, surfing, sea fishing and windsurfing, and for those who want to try something different, kite surfing lessons are available in the village there. Here too you will find cafes, restaurants, an art gallery, pubs and quirky shops



A stunning hideaway a flip flop from Tyn Towyn Beach.

This is an inspirational spot for walking, kayaking and surfing. A privileged little path leads you from the cottage garden through the dunes to the beach of Tyn Towyn. In four glorious minutes you are on the beach.

First, park the car and walk straight in to a light-filled open-plan sitting room with patio doors that swing open to let the sound of the sea creep in. At one end is a newly-installed sage green kitchen with all you need to cook up a storm. Then is a dining space with a round table sitting quietly in the corner. A fire and a cosy sofa and chair at the other end all make for a great sociable space. On a sunny day, step out and dine at the picnic bench on smoked fish from the BBQ. The double bedroom has excellent storage space and a delicious bed to sleep off the salty swims. The twin is simple and bright. The bathroom gleams and welcomes after a long day on the beach.

From the kitchen you can glimpse in the distance a proud, ancient Neolithic burial chamber right on the edge of the coast. The Wayside shop just half a mile away has the key to access Barclodiad y Gawres and see the cruciform passage grave. Further beyond along from Hideaway along sand and pebbles is Cable Bay. This bit of coast is craggy and gorgeous (surfers love it). The coastal walks just unravel for miles and when the wind whips the spray off the rollers at sunset, it is memorable; as is your peaceful spot at Hideaway.

Great pubs and restaurants too are local with The Oyster Catcher around the corner and Rhosneigr a quick hop down the road with shops, galleries and cafes to while away some much needed relaxation time.


Pen Lon

Sweet little cottage for four within popping distance of the beaches and Rhosneigr with its culinary delights

This is a jolly comfortable base with the Oyster Catcher within a mile and a shop nearby. It is right by the road, and is semi-detached, but views from the garden at the rear to countryside fields make up for that - a divine place to have morning coffee. Plus there is a delectable beach around the corner, a short stroll just along a path through the marram grass. For larger groups, Bodwarren next door can be hired at the same time perhaps to make a place for eight guests to stay. Close enough to be together for meals in the garden, but with their own space. For the really large groups, Hideaway is a reasonably close neighbour, so food for thought for friends and family to be close by!

Feel toasty by the wood stove on a comfy bright red sofa. Sleep peacefully under a bright quilt in the double room and wake up to country views or brave the bunk beds in the twin! The kitchen is light and adequate with great views over fields. The bathroom is simple with bath and shower over. There is a side path to the back door to bring the pooch straight in from the back garden or from the front of the cottage.

Stride the coastal path to find many other beaches. Porth Tyn Towyn, Porth Nobla or along to Rhosneigr. For the fun seekers there is kite surfing here or pop along to the racetrack Anglesey Circuit/Trac Mon. Aberffraw is down the road for more beaches and Llanddwyn Island and the nearby Newborough forest has a fantastic network of footpaths.


Y Bothy

Sweet little cottage for four within popping distance of the beaches and Rhosneigr with its culinary delights

Step back in time with Y Bothy; home to gardeners of old. Full of history and rustic charm, Y Bothy offers a simple style of living, designed to bring you closer to nature.

Enjoy a walk on the beach, then curl up with a book while the log burner roars away.
