About Gwendon

Gwendon is a welcoming holiday cottage on the heavenly island of Anglesey off the coast of North Wales. Imagine sitting on your private balcony with spectacular views of Bull Bay or gazing out of the front windows at panoramic views of the Irish Sea. The Anglesey cottage is ideal for families as it sleeps six people in three bedrooms and is pet-friendly. The owners use it for their holidays which means it's exceptionally well-equipped for a self-catering holiday in all seasons. However, if you're not in the mood to cook, you're only a short, half-mile walk from take-aways, cafes, and the Dinorben Arms pub in Amlwch.

Amlwch is a friendly town with fewer than 4,000 residents supported by various independently owned shops, cafes and other businesses. It's a challenge to picture it 250 years ago when it was the second-largest town in Wales and an economy focused around the world's biggest copper mine at Parys Mountain. You can learn more about the town's heritage at Copper Kingdom visitor's centre, a 20-minute walk from the cottage.

Anglesey has 140 miles of coastline boasting a mix of rocky outcrops and sandy beaches. The coastal walks around Amlwch are incredible, taking in places like the lighthouse at Porth Eilian, where you can spot dolphins and porpoises. The abandoned ruins of brickwork at Porth Wen are more challenging to reach, but the beach is a favourite with anglers. Porthygwychiaid is a bit more of a trek but often deserted and is dog-friendly all year round, while the soft white sand of isolated Traeth yr Ora will have you feeling as if you've washed up on a private tropical island. The owner's favourite walks are via the Anglesey Coastal Path to Traeth Dynion and from Point Lynas to Almwych Port.

Anglesey's size means you're never more than a 30 or 40-minute drive from anywhere on the island. Day trips include Beaumaris Castle or National Trust Plas Newydd House and Gardens. Take the kids to Anglesey Sea Zoo or Foel Farm Park. If they misbehave, a trip to Beaumaris Gaol may be more appropriate! Book a deep-sea fishing trip or a seacoast safari to see puffins, dolphins and other marine birds and wildlife. Anglesey has eight golf courses, including Bull Bay, a mile from Gwendon, with more choices on the mainland. Snowdonia National Park is just over the Menai Straits, and you can drive to Llanberris and the Snowdon Mountain Railway in 45 minutes.

Gwendon is available for holiday bookings all year round. It's an attractive choice for anyone who wants to escape the tourist trappings of seaside resort towns while still enjoying a holiday by the beach.
