The Experience

On beautiful Anglesey, close to sandy beaches and medieval castles, a cluster of carefully restored farm buildings. These traditional stone and slate houses have been transformed 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.

We had a lovely week staying at The House in the Yard and were delighted with our accommodation. We could hear sheep and cows when we woke up in the morning and nothing else and the beds were so comfortable. The boot room was so handy and our dog loved the grounds. Our children enjoyed the tree house, table tennis and a rope swing. We will definitely recommend you to friends.

As soon as you arrive at The House in the Yard you can be assured of a warm welcome from the owners Mark and Libby. Nothing is too much trouble but at the same time they give you the space and privacy to enjoy your holiday. Delicious lemon cake was waiting for us on arrival, you can even order warm croissants and jam to your cottage door for breakfast. Each cottage has its own private designated outside space and then vast shared space to enjoy - a huge lawn with treehouse and a pretty woodland. Beautiful location about 10 mins drive to Newborough beach. Very welcoming of our dog too.

  • 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
