1 bedroom cottages in an idyllic setting, close to the sea, mountains and forest
A pair of beautiful, idyllic one bedroom country retreats, with all the comfort and cosiness you could wish for whilst on holiday on Anglesey. Whatever the weather you will enjoy the comfort offered in either of these properties, and the fun and excitement of the surrounding area. The sitting rooms with their log burning stoves provide the setting for relaxing after a day out exploring the natural beauty of the Isle of Anglesey and the surrounding National Park.
We have sensitively renovated the properties over the last 4 years and have done much of the work ourselves taking into account every minute detail. Our hope is that we have created relaxing and calm spaces that enable you to fully unwind and enjoy time spent in this beautiful part of the world. The natural beauty of the area speaks for itself and if you enjoy the outdoors and love natural history this is definitely the place to visit - you will not be disappointed.
Both the Dog House and the Duck House have a sleeping capacity of 2 +2 people each, however we have an adjoining door (sensitively hidden between them and locked if each cottage is rented separately) that allows access to the adjoining cottage if required. This enables two families/couples or group of friends to enjoy both spaces together, or a larger family to be able to rent the complete space. The additional sleeping for 2 people in each of the cottages is a sofa bed so you would need to be organised and know each other well!

Snowy March weekend
Cottage was lovely, as described, with a great shower!
Great rural getaway in a great location
The cottage had been done up so nicely. The bed was very cozy and comfortable and the bathroom has been renovated to a high standard. Kate and Ben left a lovely welcome treat with welsh cakes and marmalade, fresh eggs and milk, plus lovely fresh flowers everywhere. I was very excited to find three horses and two very friendly dogs on the property to get my animal fix in. It was a great place to go and explore the amazing newborough beach.
It was a bit tricky to find the place in the dark but the hosts answered our message right away and helped us find it. The cottage was a tiny bit chilly in February and we struggled to get the fire going as the wood was a bit damp. But we were probably just not great fire builders! We also had a problem with the shower - it was fine at first and then the hot water seemed to go away and the water pressure disappeared.
Overall the place had everything you could need and lots of extra touches with games and dog biscuits and cozy blankets. Would highly recommend! Thanks so much for having us stay.
Wonderful cottage in a beautiful location
Lovely welcome gift on arrival. Amazing shower! The perfect cottage for a romantic break. Can't wait to go back.

A fantastic find!
Rural, peaceful setting. Well presented property with excellent hosts. Easy reach of many walks and locations of interest. Will book again.
Lovely cottage! Enjoyed every minute, would defiantly return.
We are situated in a rural area of great natural beauty which is ideal for individuals who want to escape to the countryside. Our location is excellent for bird watching and will delight anyone interested in natural history. Malltraeth is where the renowned wildlife illustrator Charles Tunnicliffe lived and worked overlooking the Cefni Estuary. Here you can see shelduck, one of Tunnicliffe's favourite subjects, tufted duck, ringed plover and other waders including little egrets. From the Estuary you can walk along the Cob and onto the coastal path that takes you into the forest. Here you can see red squirrels, which are currently thriving on the Isle of Anglesey. The Cefni River runs alongside the property where if you are lucky you may spot the elusive otter. We also have a large variety of inland birds that congregate nearby in the local RSPB reserve; a hidden gem just 2 miles along the bicycle track and footpath. There are several local beaches that are ideal for swimming and surfing, or just relaxing and enjoying BBQs and picnics. There are many nearby villages where provisions can be bought as well as restaurants that offer a wide range of locally produced food. The best beaches are Aberffraw beach (5 miles), Newborough beach and forest (6 miles) and Rhosneigr (9 miles); both Aberffraw and Rhosneigr have nice pubs and/or restaurants. In addition there is a very good local restaurant called The Marram Grass, 4 miles away towards Newborough, which has recently received excellent reviews in the National newspapers. From our home the full Snowdonia mountain range can be seen and the sunsets are just beautiful. Access to the Snowdonia National Park is very easy and you can be walking in the hills in just 30 minutes. For those that feel hill walking is too energetic, there is a railway that will take you to the top of Snowdon where you can get some Bara Brith and a cup of tea! Other activities such as zip wiring, mountain biking, canoeing and kite surfing are all easily accessible. There are a number of family activities locally including Anglesey Sea Zoo, Greenwood Forest Park, Foel Farm Park and Pili Palas to mention just a few. Canoes and bicycles can be rented from us at the property for a small fee.
