Tyn Towyn Holiday Cottage
A pretty, welsh whitewashed cottage tucked away neatly in the sand dunes with the sea as its neighbour, what a little slice of heaven. Park up and marvel at the magnificent views. Fling open a beach blue door to a warm, open-plan family space – the real heart of the cottage, high-ceilinged with a comfy large sofa and a log-burner. The kitchen is small but fully equipped and commands incredible views through both windows. Stare out by the kitchen sink as the waves crash onto the shore- who needs dishes – just gaze. With incredible local produce to choose from and views savoured, you will soon be sitting at the cute dining table tucking into some much deserved delights.
Small but sweet, the waves breaking on the sandy beach below can lull you to sleep in the bunk room for two. Next door is another small and uncluttered bedroom with a double bed. Let the stars twinkle through open shutters and fall softly asleep.
Wander along to the bathroom off the living space and again see the most incredible views along the way! A bath with electric shower over is a sanctuary after a hard salty beach day. There is a heated towel rail to ensure your fluffy towels are kept as happy as you!
Step out to Rhosneigr’s chic restaurants, hike the coastal path, whizz over waves on a windsurfer, fish for your supper, stroll to the beach. Bliss!

Tyn Towyn is located in one of the most idyllic spots in North West Anglesey. Within seconds of the award winning beach, Porth Nobla, and with the most incredible views. Step outside and open the blue wooden gate and step onto the path down a slight slope to the beach, morning swims are blissful during the summer and early Autumn months. Perch on one of the rocks and watch the waves roll up to the beach, lulling you into a sense of calm. Bring your kayaks and push off for the day knowing you will return to the most wonderful of boltholes.
Once you have relaxed and feel ready to explore then carry on along The Anglesey Coastal Path that runs right by the cottage. Walk along to the headland of MynyddMawr where you will find one of the most famous prehistoric relics on the island, Barclodiad y Gawres. This is an incredible Neolithic burial chamber and it is in one of the most incredible locations. Following its excavation in the 1950s it was fully restored. You need to be organised to visit this site as there is an iron gate that needs a key so you will need to pop into The Wayside Shop in nearby Llanfaelog to pay a small deposit in order to borrow the key. Please remember to take a torch with you so you can enjoy the incredible carvings in the chamber.
Carry on along the footpath to Porth Cwyfan – a secluded bay with an ancient church and tiny walled island that is cut off at high tide. The church is dedicated to St Cwyfan, founded in the 7th century, rebuilt in the 12th century and fully restored in the 19th century – it is well worth a visit.
Further along the footpath you will arrive at the headland, Trwyn Du which overlooks Aberffraw. This is one of the most beautiful bays and you will be able to appreciate some incredible views. Walk along the tidal creek and swim or surf in the sea with views of Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula.
Rest a while in Aberffraw as it is idyllic and there is a great café called the Llys Llewelyn Tea Rooms. Here you will be able to enjoy delicious homemade food, stunning cakes and a very good cup of tea. Why not hire a bicycle from here for the day – there are wonderful cycle routes to take advantage of in this area.
Further along from Tyn Towyn cottage is the village of Rhosneigr and miles of sandy beaches. If you are a water sport enthusiast then this is the place to head for. Sea kayaking, windsurfing, kite surfing, sailing, surfing or body boarding, scuba diving – you name it, it is here on your doorstep. If you are golf lovers there is an 18 hole golf course to entertain and challenge you. Sea fishing – not a problem. Fancy some lessons then you name it they are available. Time to explore a new sport or to watch others learning from the warmth of the shore.
Nature lovers – you will be in heaven here. Not only are there so many birds to watch on the beach but with Maelog Lake within minutes of the cottage you are sure to be impressed. All you need to do is grab your binoculars, camera and sketchbooks and head off for a peaceful day.
Eating out is easy – Rhosneigr is full to bursting with wonderful restaurants, pubs and cafes. From incredible French cuisine to fish and chips followed by a good old fashioned ice cream for pudding! Stroll along the beach and clamber up into the sand dunes and enjoy a good old fashioned picnic. Rugs at the ready and a post picnic snooze in the warmth of the dunes, listening to the lap of the waves and the laughter all about – utter bliss.
Further along you will find the Oyster Catcher – beach huts perch on their terrace and allow you an excuse to sit outside even on the more blustery days. Stroll inside and order a 3 course meal or wander downstairs to Will’s Bar and order a cold glass of something and sit back on their outside sofas. A great way to spend a few hours relaxing into your holiday.
Sit back on the sofa, glass of something cold in one hand and enjoy planning the next day’s adventures. Something active, cultural, browse around the shops in Rhosneigr or head off to the lovely seaside town of Beaumaris. A 25 minute drive away but well worth the effort. Wonderful shops, galleries and places to eat – not to mention a castle to explore and a pier to wander along! A little stop at the local ice cream shop is a must – made on site the flavours are exquisite. Wander down Church Street and then down Margaret Street and you will find one of their best kept secrets – Central Bakery – it has the most amazing array of bread, all baked on the premises and so fresh it will be hard to resist nibbling it on the way home!
Head off to South Stack to enjoy a wonderful walk, excellent views and the RSPB centre. Head on up Holyhead mountain and soak in the views and peace and quiet. Off along the Coastal Path to tick off another section or jump on your bike and follow the cycle trails. There is just so much to do on Anglesey!
With the rest of Anglesey to explore and yet so much to do on your doorstep you may need to save something for next time!
