Foel Ferry, Tyn Y Foel, Menai Straits, a holiday cottage on the banks of the Menai Straits on Anglesey with breathtaking views of Snowdonia, in a glorious sea front location
Tyn y Foel was originally built to receive the passengers from the low water jetty which you can see on the beach. The high water jetty was part of the Tal-y-Foel ferry landing site. The ferry was one of a few that carried passengers across the straits to the mainland, landing them at Caernarfon. The ferry was used by the slate quarrymen from Bynsiencyn and surrounding villages, and also took bread and supplies from Anglesey to Caernarfon.
After Telford’s suspension bridge was opened the ferry fell into disuse and the building became a farmers’ cooperative. There are stories of flat barges mooring up alongside the road wall and coal being shovelled straight across into the courtyard. Other folk speak of tea being served from the building.
Can be booked with the two other Foel Ferry properties, ideal for a large group booking of up to 18 people.
