Up a steep, tangle of lanes and banks of hedgerows to the highest of Anglesey points sits Y Beudy. A bit of a mystery tour takes you to this little holiday cottage - a cute annexe to the owner’s home. It's a very simple space amidst a farm environment, with a couple of neighbouring caravans also poised to enjoy the view.
Originally the cowshed for the old farm, this section of the owners’ family home has been updated to be a warm retreat. A stay here is all about the views out over to West Mouse, the Skerries and the Irish Sea.
A large, light-filled living room is comfortably unfussy, relax and drink in this landscape of outstanding natural beauty and watch the buzzards glide.
A calming bedroom is tucked away at the rear next to a neat shower room, ample for a proper drenching. The kitchen gleams, and although very simple, has all the kit you need. You have a lawn at the back to yourselves and seating for al fresco meals and star gazing at the front. Listen for owls and spot the flitting bats.
Go walking and cycling straight from the door of your holiday cottage and explore this secret corner of the northwest of Anglesey. It is rich in shipwreck stories, caves and magic.
Refresh with a pint at the Church Bay Inn just a few miles away, or potter to The Lobster Pot at Church Bay for a hearty seafood meal. The beach here is a gem. The pretty harbour village of Cemaes Bay is down the road in the other direction - highlights include Y Wygyr Fish & Chips and another great beach. More local is Cemlyn with a shingle spit – a bird-watching paradise.
The setting is poetic. Explore a perfect network of paths and then amble home to recover and dream of smuggler’s tales.
