This cottage is delightfully quirky. No expense has been spared on equipment and furnishings. The view from the extension over the Menai Straits is wonderful. Access is very challenging for anyone with a mobility disability or with a wide car.

This was our third visit to this lovely cottage & we enjoyed it as much as the first. It really has everything you could possibly want, as it is very well equipped, but it is the quirkiness which sets it apart from anywhere else we have stayed. Patricia, who owns this cottage, is always available if you encounter any problems on your visit. ParkingRead more is quite easy, right outside the cottage. The new decking area means the views are even more beautiful than before, looking over the Menai Strait. Hide

Our third time at Bryn Afon and we were blessed with two weeks of really hot sunny weather. This little cottage is beautiful, so cosy and very well equipped. We never tired of sitting on the patio every evening watching the sun go down and the little boats on the Menai. We look forward to hopefully coming back soon, thank you Patricia and Malcolm.
