Tyddyn Waen hides secretly down a narrow private lane in the lovely village of Llanddona in south east Anglesey. In a whole acre of sunny gardens, bursting with birds, sheltered by shrubs and trees, here you can find solitude and space.
A short amble away is the family-run little village pub (The Owain Glyndwr) with home cooked food and great ale. If you fancy stretching your legs and feeling salt air on your cheeks, Llanddona beach is less than a mile and a half down country lanes – so that hike back uphill will wear off the calories.
Inside your cosy little Welsh cottage is ample space. A large, modern and well-equipped kitchen hosts a breakfast bar and a dining table for 6 with church pew and bench seating.
From here a door leads through to a king size bedroom in pretty pastel colours and lush green views.
Or through to the sitting room with squashy leather sofas and vivid artwork by local artist Sian McGill. If you fancy a quick dart to the gardens from here, a door leads outside.
Two more comfortable bedrooms - a jaunty seaside twin room and a spacious master bedroom - both have serene garden views. There are two spanking new bathrooms – one family one with a deep bath perfect for a soak after a day's exploring and an en-suite shower room off the main bedroom
Beaumaris is the nearest town, a 3-mile drive away and has a fantastic selection of pubs, restaurants, delis and independent shops, alongside a stunning medieval castle. Turn the other way and head towards Traeth Bychan and Red Wharf Bay for seaside meals or sand castles. Or onto Moelfre, a sleepy seaside village with great ice cream.
Adventures await with the whole of Anglesey on your doorstep. Or, stay local, savour the peace at the picnic table and listen to the birds chirp.
