Gaerwen, Anglesey

Two gorgeous cottages and an annexe in peaceful Anglesey. Explore the magical gardens, relax by the wood-burner, sleep under Welsh blankets


3 places


Sleeping from 2 – 5


On beautiful Anglesey, close to sandy beaches and medieval castles, a cluster of carefully restored farm buildings. Charming owners Libby and Mark have transformed these traditional stone and slate houses into comfortable, stylish self-catering properties. From home-baked cake on arrival to complimentary logs supplied for wood-burners, you’re well looked after. ‘Owl Barn’ and  ‘The Farmhouse’ are neighbours in an old house built in 1870 and can be rented separately or together. Both are light and spacious, with plump sofas to sink into, smart bathrooms and beds topped with colourful Welsh blankets. An interconnecting door can link the two properties and Owl Barn has a big kitchen overlooking the pretty gardens, for group feasts. Little ‘Woodpecker Cottage’ is a snug bolthole for two with a magical walled garden where you can breakfast al fresco; it has a kitchenette for simple cooking, too. Outside, stone paths lead through lovely, lawned gardens shaded by mature trees: guests are welcome to wander. Beyond your peaceful rural retreat, there are miles of scenic coastal paths and cycle trails to explore.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Mark & Libby Evans

  • Ten minutes from the award winning blue flag beach of Newborough with its protected sand dunes and miles of pine forests. Whether you want to walk, cycle or swim there is something for everybody. The beach was recently voted amongst the top 20 in the UK.
  • Tesla & EV charging. The cottages are nestled within 3.5 acres of land. There is a woodland with walkways, šeating and a Wendy house for little visitors. Watch our chickens In the lower orchard, play games on the field or just relax in the cottage garden
  • House in the Yard is conveniently located to explore the Snowdonia National Park and the historical castles of Caernarfon, Conwy and our own Beaumaris castle and gaol. Take a visit to Oriel Mon to look at the wonderful paintings of Sir Kyffin Williams
  • If food is your passion Anglesey has quality local produce for you to try at its restaurants. Welsh lamb, mussels, oysters, sea bass and our own sea salt are amongst its specialities. Stay with us in September and enjoy the Island's seafood festival.
  • Explore further afield and catch a ferry from Holyhead to Dublin for a day to enjoy a pint of Guinness - You will have to be up early though! Grab a rib ride and motor down the Menai Straits to get a sea view of the Anglesey and visit Puffin Island.
  • The coastal pathways offer a breath taking way to see the island - either on foot or bike or horse! . Anglesey is rich with wildlife and fauna offering birdwatchers and botanists exciting opportunities to spot that elusive rare species
