The Experience

This is farming territory: chugging tractors, ploughed fields, neatly clipped hedgerows. John’s farm is vibrantly green and peaceful with 80 acres of woodland you’re free to roam. The family have nurtured this land for half a century; uncover the 4th-century ‘vanished’ village, the 800-year-old chapel and the 2000 BC burial chamber. Your hideaways are thoughtfully modern and flooded with light; both have sitting rooms with French doors opening to private patios. At Fancy House, you have a good-sized kitchen with everything you need and a working fireplace in the sitting room. Upstairs, bedrooms have excellent beds with white linen; the double has a window seat with views to the sea. In Ty Coed: a comfy living room, and a kitchen with gas stove and Welsh slate floor (underfloor heated). An open staircase takes you to a mezzanine twin bedroom with a fresh feel. The ground floor double, next to the living area, has a lofty beamed ceiling and views to the garden and woods beyond. Both have tiled bathrooms that sparkle, with free-standing baths. Rural bliss, but stroll for half an hour to find pub and shops.

Just returned from a 7 night stay (17-24 September) in the beautifully furnished and spacious Ty Coed. Superb location - only 10 minutes from the beach and a lovely coastal walk from Traeth Lligwy to Moelfre. We travelled into Snowdonia and did a scenic circular walk around Llyn y Gader and Beddgelert Forest. Also went on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. A more strenuous walk up Yr Eifl (highest point on the Llyn Peninsula) with stunning views of the N Wales Coastline and visited Aberdaron. Walked by Ynys Llanddwyn and a relaxing meal at the Bay View Restaurant at the Gwesty Gadlys Hotel. 👍

There are few words that can capture the beauty, comfort and hospitality of this remarkable destination. The accommodations were spectacular, and everything about it warm and welcoming. In fact, the cottage was so well appointed, we chose to cook in on more than one evening, and started every day with long walks through the fields and grounds. The only disappointment was having to leave three days later. We will most definitely be returning, as well as recommending to everyone we know who may consider a trip through Northern Wales.

Fancy House & Ty Coed are our two favourite places to stay on Anglesey! We always try to stay in one of them for at least a week every year. Plas Ligwy is an ideal base from which to explore the island. There is so much to see! We have been going there for quite a few years now and there are still plenty of places we haven’t visited yet! Both cottages are well equipped and cosy and John is a perfect host!

Graham, Craven Arms

Very nice accommodation. 10 minutes walk to Lligwy beach. Hopefully be back next year.

Glyn, Stoke-on-Trent

This was our 4th visit to the Fancy House and as always the cottage was perfect. Very cosy, comfortable and well equipped. In a beautiful, peaceful location with views of the sea and ancient village from the master bedroom. Short walk to a beautiful beach and coastal path. Jon the owner, is a perfect host, very friendly and always on hand in an unobtrusive way. Hope to return to Lligwy again soon.

Nicola, Stratford-upon-Avon

We stayed in Ty Coed over the Easter weekend and we were so fortunate with the amazing weather. The cottage was lovely to stay in and really felt like home away from home! ...Kitchen was well equipped with dishwasher/washing machine and and all the things you could think of!! Some lovely additions too including badminton rackets, wind breaker for beach. Table football and table tennis in the games room was brilliant! Location is excellent for exploring the island and close enough to walk to LLigwy beach! Peaceful and and away from any traffic noise. Hopefully we will be able to return...!

We have stayed at Plas Lligwy cottages a number of times, and continue to return. The location, within walking distance of Lligwy beach, and the walks and history on your doorstep are fabulous. The cottages each have everything you need and are well kept and cared for, like homes away from home. The views from various rooms, allow for glimpses of the sea, or the ancient monument of Din Lligwy...gorgeous! The owner is on hand, and is incredibly helpful.

Kathy, Wigan

This is a delightful cottage completely modernised with everything that you want and is ideally located. The owner is most helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Our family have used this property and the other properties available for many years and would recommend them without hesitation.

Tony, Wigan

Fantastic stay at Fancy House. We've returned many times to this fantastic place. Great accommodation, lots of space and excellent location. We have already booked for next year!!

Richard, Parbold, WIGAN

Our family have been coming to Plas Lligwy for almost 20 years. Each cottage is a delight although my heart belongs to the Fancy House and the bedroom window seat. The cottages are perfect and, whilst close to everything from marvellous beaches to places to eat, they retain a sense of other worldly privacy thanks to the beautiful setting. You can drive all over Anglesey and you really should explore. But spend some days car free just soaking up the ancient history (and 21st century luxury) of the farm and its surroundings. John and Eli have created a little bit of heaven here.

Pauline, Liverpool

Very pleasant welcome. Well equipped. Excellent beds.

michael, Wells

Smart, cosy cottage, beautifully clean with all modern conveniences. Close to beautiful sandy beaches and quaint moelfre only 40 walk away. Peaceful location.


We absolutely loved staying here, a magical place. Everything comfortable, cosy, quiet. Stunning views & countryside. Location was fantastic. Helpful owners but wonderful privacy too. Can't wait to return one day. The pool and table football room was a nice extra too!
