Holiday Cottage on Anglesey Overlooking the Menai Strait | Gwel-Y-Don
Watch the tide ebb and flow against a stunning mountain backdrop. This beautiful waterfront cottage in North Wales sleeps up to four guests.
Gwel-Y-Don sits on the edge of the Menai Strait – the body of water which separates Anglesey from the Welsh mainland. Within touching distance of the waves, it is the kind of setting which makes jaws drop and hearts sing. Truly uplifting and beautiful.
Grade II listed, the cottage dates back to the early 18th century. It has a long tradition of welcoming visitors to Anglesey: it started life as an inn for travellers using what was once the main ferry crossing to and from the Welsh mainland.
The accommodation is bright, relaxed and beautifully presented. A soft muted colour scheme complements the stunning natural environment. Everything is new, pristine and supremely comfortable.
A stone-flagged entrance hallway leads to a large bright sitting room on the ground floor. There are two big comfy sofas in here, with a woodburning stove to keep things toasty when the temperature drops. The real big news about the sitting room, though, is the huge window which frames the view to the water’s edge. The mountains of Snowdonia rise up beyond. A window seat makes this a great place to relax with a drink. A spacious kitchen comes with plenty of cupboard space and all the gizmos, crockery and appliances you might need on your hols. The dining table seats four.
Upstairs in this beautiful holiday cottage on Anglesey overlooking the Menai Strait, you’ll find two bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, with magnificent views across the water to the mountains beyond. The second bedroom has two single beds, with different, but equally beautiful views. A roomy bathroom comes with a bath and separate shower. The owners of the cottage were involved in the creation of the Plastic Free Anglesey campaign, so your shampoo, conditioner and hand soap will come in refillable bottles produced by a responsible local supplier.
Outside there is a small garden area, with seating looking out over the water. When the tide is in there is plenty of calm, safe water for a play in a kayak or paddleboard. At low tide, you’ll have a beautiful beach, great for a run around with kids or the dog.
