About Michael Darnell

Michael & Samantha moved to Anglesey as they returned again and again for holidays. We hope to provide a high quality experience for large groups or families.

Michael Darnell purchased this house in 2011

Why Michael Darnell chose Anglesey

We bought Woodlands as we though it would make a great location and base for those visiting Anglesey for the first time or those who keep coming back again and again

What makes this house unique

Woodlands is a great location for Anglesey and North Wales. It also makes a great property for celebrations where the event is more of the focus than the location.

The property is unique in that all of the bedrooms are large, so there will be no dispute on who gets which rooms.

The games room is a great for keeping children occupied, whilst the bar room offers novelty something for the adults

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Fantastic place, great location. Couldn't ask for more!”

"Having stayed in a number of self-catering cottages over the last few years, our large group agreed this was one of the best both in terms of the property itself and the location"

"While the house is large, it still retains a cosy feel with three comfortable reception rooms - the conservatory, bar lounge and another lounge with wood-burning stove."

Hello Michael

Just to let you know the house was perfect, Thank you

We all had an amazing time and the house suited all the family needs - which trust me can be tricky.

There was NOT one complaint.

And you are all so helpfull. From the wonderful ladies that prepare the house for us to arrive, letting us empty the car early so we could get the shopping ready for the others arrival. To all your help putting my mind at ease, even while YOU were on holiday.

We were there for a wedding and as you were only a 10-15 minute drive to the venue it was perfect for getting there and getting everyone home after the fun packed day.

The house was fully stocked with everything you could possible need whilst on holiday. And enough room so we could all spread out around the house even on wet days. No one felt on top of each other and plenty of room in the garden for the little ones to play.

We even had other members of the family wishing that they had stayed as their accommodation was alot more expensive.

Thank you for making it all so easy for us.

Kind regards

Emma Kingdon

Perfect family get together

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Woodlands on Anglesey for a family get together.

The house was perfect for us- all bedrooms en-suite, most with a lovely sea view, and several lounge areas where we could all sit together. The children loved the games area and we loved the bar area!

It was all very clean and well kept.

The location was great, a short walk to the village and beaches.

We would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay on Anglesey.

Spacious but also warm and cozy

  • 4 of 5

A very clean, well maintained property with the benefit of all en suite bedrooms. The large lounge with a real log burner was a very comfy spot for a wet Saturday in December and having our own bar in the evening was great fun. The dining table was the biggest we have ever seen and the conservartory & games room were very pleasant additional spaces. It was a pleasant and easy walk to Benllech beach and over to Red Wharf bay too Our crowd of 12 friends thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here and I would certainly be happy to come back in the not too distant future.

great space - great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Woodlands. The facilities for our extended family group worked really well with the huge dining table, great cooker and games room for distraction of the youngsters. The set up was all arranged with a minimum of fuss and a light touch on "regulations" which added to the holiday atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great holiday! We spent a week at Woodlands on a family holiday and had a superb time. The rooms were lovely and all had en-suites which was really useful. There was a brilliant games room which kept the kids (and adults) entertained. The kitchen and dining space was more than adequate and there was plenty of room so you could always sneak off for a bit of quiet time :) The location couldn't have been better either, it is a short stroll to the amenities in Benllech and only a 15 minute walk down to the lovely Red Wharfe Bay and Ship Inn Pub. We couldn't recommended the property enough and will be back soon!

Woodlands is close to some of the best beaches on Anglesey, including:

Benllech Beach – A great family beach which you can walk to in less than 15 minutes.

LLigwy Beach – Our favourite local beach

Red Wharfe Bay – A picturesque bay that floods at high tide

Treath Bychan – A lovely little beach with a cafe

Llandonna Beach – A little more remote and hence a less visited beach


Cross onto Anglesey and then follow signs for A5025 to Benllech. Just before you reach the village the speed limit changes to 40 and the entrance to Woodlands is on the left just over the brow of a small hill.

The nearest airports are Manchester and Liverpool. Nearest train station is Bangor. There is a bus stop very near Woodlands.


In the immediate area there is a great selection of beaches. There is also a sections of good pubs and restaurants. Benllech makes a great base to explore the island and/or North Wales. We have lots of information at the property on these locations plus suggestions of walks and other things to do.
