Holiday Rental House
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...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.

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. Arlanfor (Sleeps 4) and Felin y Foel(Sleeps 8) Property description Ground floor Kitchen/dining area Tyn-y-Foel has a kitchen/dining area, the kitchen contains an electric oven and hob, a dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle and a full array of kitchen utensils. A freestanding coal effect electric stove sits snugly on the hearth. A good sized pine kitchen table and six chairs provide plenty of room for family dining. Utility room There is also a utility room downstairs with a washing machine toilet amd wash hand basin. Lounge The stone fireplace and chimney breast is a major feature of the lounge which contains a sofa and four armchairs.

This was our first stay at Foel Ferry cottages and we had a truly memorable holiday. The cottage comfortably housed 4 adults and a teenager and had everything we needed. The setting is fantastic...I will always remember drinking my morning coffee sitting in the garden...More
