The Experience

A traditional Welsh cottage on Nick and Suzi’s five-acre smallholding – they’ll happily show you their rare breed Soay sheep and give you a tour of the wildflower meadow, pond, vegetable garden and orchard.

You have your own front door with a handy porch for boots and coats and a cosy sitting room with a wood-burner, books, games and local info. Nick bakes all the bread and pastries – weekday breakfasts are continental (homemade granola, compote, croissants or toast) but you can have the full works at weekends with local bacon and sausages and eggs from the chickens. If you’d like to self-cater there are two charming shepherd’s huts – each with king-size bed, en suite bathroom and kitchen area.  

Sit outside and enjoy the view – on a clear day you can see as far as Snowdonia. Pack up a picnic and walk to Porth Trwyn beach and the coastal path in 25 minutes; the local cafe, Blas Mwy at the Black Lion Inn, is a four-minute walk, the Lobster Pot at Church Bay and two fish and chip shops are a short drive.

We've really enjoyed our stay in Nick and Suzi's delightful B&B cottage and they've been wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel incredibly welcome. The cottage is beautifully decorated and everything is finished to a very high standard. Warm and cosy and in a lovely setting, with a great breakfast. Nick is an excellent baker! Glorious walks along the coastal paths and so nice to come back to such an adorable home from home. Can't recommend enough.

Fabulous! Don’t even think about it.... just book it! You will have a lovely time. The hut is incredibly clean and surprisingly spacious. Everything has been considered from eco products and high quality bedding. We stayed for our wedding anniversary and were welcomed with a card and treats! The welcome pack of bread (baked by Nick), lovely salty butter, fresh eggs from his chickens and lovely refreshments hit the spot. We managed to have a fire in the fire pit one evening under the stars, perfect. The view to wake up to at the front of the hut on the Snowdonian range was stunning.

A wonderful warm welcome and everything we could have wished for in a B&B. From the get go Nick was keen to help all aspects of our stay, recommending local eateries and adapting to an early breakfast need on the Sunday in order for us to participate in a cycling event. Suzi extended the hospitality with a friendly welcome and keenness to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We loved the cottage, the décor, spacious bedroom & well designed bathroom. Lovely bedding, plenty of hot water, fresh milk, digital radios, all the little thoughtful extras that we really didn't expect! Fab food too.

Emma, Sheffield

We had a marvellous stay. Such a unique, cosy experience in a very high specification hut! We loved the welcome pack of fresh eggs, handmade bread and milk. We also loved that products in the hut were sustainable and kind to the environment. I'm sure we will be back along with friends and family! Pete & Nikki

Nikki, Manchester

Lovely stay in the shepherds hut. Amazing views and great amenities with lots of thoughtful touches. Would definitely return soon!

Sarah, Chester

What a superb place to stay. It's so much more than a B and B. We've stayed in all kinds of accommodation in the UK, and nothing, even 5 star hotels, match the service and excellent accommodation of this. We stayed for 3 nights and plan to go back in October for a longer stay Well done Nick and Suzi.

Nancy, Pershore, Worcestershire

"Special" is absolutely correct. I've stayed at 5 star hotels which were less comfortable, and had (far) less style. The food, service and atmosphere are also second to none, perhaps except the warm and genuine welcome. A real hidden gem, if you'll excuse the cliche.

The neighbourhood

The cottage is set back from the main road and reached by a private driveway, but everything is within a 45-minute drive at the most: the only working mill in Wales, Llynnon Mill, is a 10-minute drive and two Celtic roundhouses nearby provide a fascinating insight into the life of Iron Age farmers over 3,000 years ago. You’ll find binoculars and guides in the cottage and RSPB reserves at Cemlyn, a 15-minute drive, or South Stack, 25 minutes’ drive. Both are perfect for picnics too.

Local points of interest from Nick & Suzi Grenfell-Marten

  • Our local beach, Porth Trwyn, is under two miles away. A small rocky cove, it’s a quiet place to explore the rock pools, watch the birds and walk on the sand at low tide. Views out to the Skerries and easy access to the coastal path.
  • Blas Mwy at the Black Lion is under half a mile from Cae’r Bryniau. It serves modern British food with a real focus on local produce. There is also a lovely gift shop.
  • Fifteen minutes north of us is Cemaes Bay, a charming little harbour. Go a few miles further on to Llanbadrig and the Church founded on the spot where St Patrick is said to have reached land after being shipwrecked.
  • Llynnon Mill, the only working windmill in Wales, is just down the road and open to the public most days in the season. There's a fantastic cafe with pastries produced by a top London chef who has come home.
  • Suzi is a holistic therapist offering reflexology, Reiki and ear candling. After a relaxing treatment, chill out on a bench in the orchard with a cup of organic herbal tea. Bespoke classes can be arranged in Reiki, meditation and mindfulness.
  • Anglesey's geology is particularly unusual and the whole island has been declared a Global Geopark. Whether you're an expert or you just like pretty pebbles, it's a wonderful place to explore.


Nick & Suzi Grenfell-Marten

Nick and Suzi live next door and give you tea and cake when you arrive. They both worked in education; Suzi was a headteacher but retrained as a reflexologist and reiki master (ask her about treatments) and Nick still does some consultancy work. They moved to the property five years ago for a complete lifestyle change and are aiming for self-sufficiency, doing their utmost to turn their smallholding into a haven for nature and supporting local producers as much as possible.
