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.
