Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Dwyran, Island of Anglesey, North Wales, Wales
The property, formally a Welsh long house has been tastefully restored and converted into two beautiful holiday Cottages. Both Cottages enjoy all modern conveniences whilst remaining full of character. The Castaways has two bedrooms and sleeps 4. Each property has its own private garden with table, chairs and BBQ. The Beautiful sandy beaches, Riding Centre, Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel farm, and many other fabulous attractions are just a short drive away.

The essence of Penrhyn Mawr is one of peace and tranquillity; a chance to get away from the madding crowd and relax in this quiet location. Therefore, it is better suited to adults, and families with older children, who appreciate a quiet environment.

Saturday to Saturday bookings. Late availability and out of season stays - minimum of 3 nights.

The Castaways is a very special place to stay. Everyone in the Visitors Book, and ourselves included, mention the peace and tranquility. It is cosy when it is cold and yet light and airy when it is sunny - our visit was in September so we experienced all weathers! We even enjoyed the many close encounters with wildlife (mainly pheasants...

Need a car for this location for food shopping or eating out. Don't forget to take bed linen - or your waterproofs!

Thank you so much for your review. Great to meet you ! Delighted you found good relaxation too - it's what we do ! It's is true that we are not near to large shops and indeed Anglesey does necessitate a car for most places. Our local farm shop offers great local produce. But I hope that the peace and...

About the neighbourhood
The accommodation is situated off the A4080 about 2 miles from the village of Dwyran. It is also near to the renowned Newborough forest and beach of Llandwen. The village of Dwyran, with its 12th Century parish church, is largely residential and is sited on the South bank of the Afon, a small river that takes its name from Brigantia, Goddess of the ancient Celts. Just outside the village is the Anglesey Model Village where many of the Island's landmarks are recreated in miniature. South of Dwyran, lanes lead through woods and fields to the Menai Strait. Visit Tal y Foel Riding Centre and other attractions such as the Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel farm, Golf driving range and Henblas Country Park and glorious clean beaches just a ten minute drive away.
