On beautiful Anglesey, close to sandy beaches and medieval castles, these traditional stone and slate houses are very comfortable. 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. You’ll find basics waiting plus Welsh cakes.
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 – good enough for a short stay. 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.
