About Salem

Salem is a charming period holiday cottage sleeping four people in two bedrooms on the Isle of Anglesey. The holiday home is rural but not inconveniently so, being in Mynydd Bodafon, three miles from Moelfre with wonderful walks from the door. It's packed full of wonderful features, including local slate floors and Welsh timber. The nearest pub is the Pilot Boat, around a mile and a half - a great distance for working up a thirst! Salem is ideal for families and couples and available for bookings all year round.

Mynydd Bodafon is not only the name of the hamlet where you'll stay, but it is also the name of a favourite walking destination. Mynydd means "mountain" in Welsh, but Mynydd Bodafon is a series of peaks affording spectacular panoramic views of Anglesey and Snowdonia. Anglesey's beaches are as good as any you'll find anywhere in the world. The closest beach is Lligwy, around two and a half miles away, with other local beaches, including Benllech and Moelfre. Anglesey is small enough that everywhere is convenient, and you can easily reach beaches like Rhosneigr, Llanddwyn, Aberffaw Bay, Traeth yr Ora, and Lligwy.

Moelfre is the nearest place to buy supplies for your holiday. It's a pretty coastal village with a choice of places to eat, drink and shop. You might be lucky enough to spot dolphins and porpoises swimming off the coast of Moelfre when you're fishing, canoeing, kayaking, sailing or kite surfing. Cycling is another popular way to enjoy the scenery, as is walking one of the many way-marked footpaths around Moelfre, Lligwy and Dulas.

Local Anglesey attractions include Beaumaris Castle, which is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Anglesey Transport Museum, Anglesey Sea Zoo, Copper Kingdom, and the Anglesey Model Village. Take a boat trip to Puffin Island or cross the Menai Strait to the Welsh Mainland and Snowdonia National Park. In 40 minutes or less, you can reach Zip World in Penrhyn Quarry, the Snowdon Mountain Railway, Conwy Castle, Surf Snowdonia, and Caernarfon Castle. The problem won't be finding something to keep everyone happy but trying to do everything you want in the time you have. It's no wonder so many people who stay at Salem are repeat visitors.

Location (Anglesey)

Accommodation Comprises:

Salem is a detached house with a lovely cottage garden and accommodation over two levels.


  • Charming living room with oak beams, solid wood flooring and soft sofas with cosy knitted throws. It's a lovely place to relax with a book or a film, putting your feet up after a day spent doing as much or as little as possible, depending on the type of holiday you enjoy. The TV has Freeview channels, and the cottage has WiFi throughout.
  • Fitted kitchen with all of the equipment you'll need to self-cater. Like the living room, it's a warm and welcoming space with a country charm created by the Belfast sink, ranger cooker, and Welsh dresser. The dining table is beside the window with garden views.
  • Master bedroom with a romantic four-poster double bed, bedside tables with reading lights, and ample storage. French doors open onto the garden.
  • Spacious bathroom with a deep roll top bath, WC and a handbasin.


  • Landing with a desk and chair for guests who need to work or study during their stay.
  • Loft bedroom with a dormer window, wooden flooring and a double bed. This room also has a double sofa bed if two people, like siblings, don't want to share a bed. The maximum capacity of the cottage is four people.

Outside: Salem has pretty gardens with flowers to the front and rear, including a patio with a barbecue and garden furniture. There is off-street parking for three cars.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. A cot (no bedding) and a high chair are available—guests to bring cot bedding and beach towels if they are required. Smoking and pets are not permitted.
