A timeless Hideaway for gatherings of eight with an easy atmosphere. Tucked away up a private track with coastal path walks starting at the door.
Journey along the breathtaking Anglesey coast past Rhosneigr and drop down to an ancient lane to find a secret retreat. This is old-fashioned charm at its best. At first glance, Llangwyfan Isaf appears to be of 19th-century origin, but elements of the original house date back to the late C16 house.
It also has historical associations with the nearby Medieval church of St. Cwyfan (Church In The Sea). Part of the house was consecrated in order that services could be held when the nearby island church was inaccessible. Soak up the past and feel the magic in the reassuring timelessness of it all.
You feel relaxed the moment you’ve pulled off your wellies in the little sun room and stepped inside this sprawling house. You’re a few fields from the sandy coastline and right next to Trac Mon (Anglesey Circuit). For those that don’t like noise, this is not the house for you as at certain times of the day, loud track noise will travel to the gardens. A bonus is that all guests have free access to race days.
Come together for homely family suppers in the very large kitchen, or stoke up the BBQ and gather under the star-studded skies serenaded by the odd sheep bleat. The old dairy is a vast sitting room with a dining area for more grand occasions and a great hub. Pick your own grapes in the sunroom!
There are three wood stoves for when the weather isn’t playing nice for pre-dinner drinks by crackling fires. Sleep off long walks in hugely comfortable bedrooms with views through the trees. There are two sparkling family bathrooms - one with a drenching shower and a cast iron style bath (for soaks and bubbles of both varieties). The other with just the bath and utter peace.
Outdoors is a very basic games room with a ping pong table and fridge for the beers! Spill out to gardens that call out to be explored - in spring, a blanket of bluebells and snowdrops in the winter.
It’s a breeze to explore Anglesey from here. Ten minutes in the car gets you to explore lively Rhosneigr with its umpteen places to eat. The Sandy Mount House is a gem. Five minutes the other way and you arrive at the former home of the Welsh Princes. Eat like a King in Y Goron – amazing home-cooked food for which locals travel for miles.
Llanddwyn is a scenic tour away. Beaumaris is a 30-minute drive but worth a visit for castles, antique shops and fabulous ice cream.
Anglesey’s coastline shines brightly. South Stack is a must-do to view hundreds of seabirds sitting tight on cliffside ledges, chough, guillemots, and razorbills soar. The lighthouse is a commanding visit.
Not a place to be bored.
