Stunning views of ships on the horizon greet you from this coastal gem for 10, with an amazing hot tub.
Belan Wen is the best bolthole for ten people enveloped by the beach, ancient trees and open fields. This is the place for a perfect Anglesey holiday. Negotiating a charming but steep lane down to Belan Wen takes time, but when you reach this beach destination you are rewarded with one of our most spectacular hideaways.
In the acre of garden is a bubbling hot tub – bliss and beautifully lit at night. Beach bolthole perfect indoors too – easy living that enables you to relax. The main living area is contemporary with a vast brown leather squishy sofa and a sleek electric fires that warms your soul within minutes – this is the place to cocoon yourself. There’s plenty to keep kids and grown-ups entertained here with an iPod dock, blue ray DVD with a good selection of DVDs and TV with Freeview. For the quieter moments, a reading area nestles in the corner.
Gather around the huge oak table for a hearty seafood meal with great sea views. Cooking is easy here thanks to a well equipped modern kitchen with a wealth of appliances. Practicalities for the celebrations are well covered with the extra drinks fridge in the utility room!
Under the rafters upstairs are two en suite bedrooms with with king beds and TVs too, if you can keep your eyes open after striding the coastal path. For the taller guests, don’t worry, there are ground floor bedrooms without the sloping ceilings. Two rooms with twin beds and one king room with an en-suite too. A family bathroom is on hand across the hall.
You can take in a swim at breakfast on the sandy beach through the gate. Take a brisk walk along at low tide to Red Wharf Bay for a spot of lunch at The Ship Inn. Hop in the car to shop or pop to the pub for the evening and return for a soak in the hot tub. Or just sunbathe on the south-facing patio with a book and BBQ the lobster for supper. The Bothy on the beach serves beach perfect chips and ice cream if you fancy a snack at lunchtime. It is peace personified. Owls are the only night-time revellers around here.
Beaumaris is three miles away – a delightful medieval town. It boasts a 13th century moated castle, lovely buildings housing excellent shops, charming pubs, restaurants, bistros, galleries, as well as a golf course and exciting pleasure boat and sea fishing trips. Thriving Benllech and Red Wharf Bay are seven miles in the car.
Llanddona itself is a tiny village with a magnificent Blue Flag beach and a good local pub. The beach stretches across Red Wharf Bay to Benllech and provides safe bathing, perfect for wonderful family fun, fishing and miles of stunning scenic walks. You will be joined by waterfowl and wading birds, including shell duck, grey plover, purple sandpipers, curlew, oystercatchers and dunlin. This place has it all – it’s fabulous.

“The house is very homely and comfortable and very well equiped. The utility room was extremely useful especially for the dogs. There is nothing to improve the house for us, it is “perfect”. Across the road from a beach is fantastic too. We all enjoyed the cake and fizz – thank you – and the Christmas treats for the dogs was a lovely touch. We will definitely be back.” (Machin family, Christmas 2017)
