Lastly is the magnificent bedroom with a super-king-size bed and a gargantuan window seat laden with cushions to embrace the fabulous views towards the Menai Straits. What an amazing view to wake up to and start your day.

Outside is full of surprises too: the outside bath, with hot and cold running water, nestles under a sail in the paved courtyard with a table, chairs and a gas BBQ. This is accessed via the kitchen or you can walk around from the front garden, which also has a table and chairs, perfect to enjoy morning coffee. Take 50 paces from the front door round to the secret garden mostly laid to lawn with a summer house, perfect for an artist’s studio, yoga or to just relax with a good book.

Although the cottage is set up for 2 guests maximum you never felt squeezed or uncomfortable. All rooms had ample space. View from upstairs bedroom was exceptional with the Menai Straight in the distance. Nothing was lacking in comfort or facilities with the little goodies left by the owners much appreciated.

A beautiful cottage on the edge of the National park. A gem. We were warmly welcomed and looked after.
