Big Moo

A bolthole with sea views just a two minute stroll from the sandy Borthwen Beach with great rock pools – great for families or large groups that wish to celebrate.
Where roads narrow and footpaths spider out over the rugged Cambrian coast, this contemporary barn conversion stands within a cluster of others facing the sea. Big Moo is a carefully renovated barn where once cattle congregated. Now, hidden inside the rugged stone exterior you can find a high specification interior. Big Moo is great for families or large groups that wish to celebrate in the sociable layout.

Sea and sky flood through huge roof windows, illuminating clean-cut vibrant sofas that dot the large, contemporary, open living space. In one corner, a sleek monochrome kitchen has all that you need to dine with friends or family, or both! A granite-topped island, is as much fun for a friendly celebration as it is for a children’s baking session. Watch the sand pipers over the bay with binoculars from the large windows.

Three bedrooms and bathrooms are downstairs, the other is up. They each have warm underfloor heated oak floors, bright bedding and simple furniture. Down the hand-crafted oak stairs to the ground floor, the barn opens to a spacious hall with seating area and stone floors. Here the master bedroom is spacious and uncluttered with a king size bed and the luxury of an en-suite shower room. The twin room has single beds and is light and airy. Another twin room can be found next door, which has the option of being made with the two single beds or a large super king. An inviting fourth bedroom leads from the living space with a huge super king bed. Bathrooms are head-to-toe in a warm shade of travertine stone.

The lawn garden is small but perfect for sitting and rejuvenating in the peace and sun. Fire up the barbeque and enjoy some fresh fish from the local bay and you will be as happy as a clam.

Beyond the barn are endless fields and amazing sea views so stroll two minutes across the country lane to Borthwen Beach, or strike out on breezy walks along the Anglesey Coastal Path. There are other coves too for bucket-and-spades heaven. Church Bay is a mile and a half away with a good fish restaurant. It is a mile to the nearest shop and a mile and a half to a great dog friendly pub, the Black Lion: nothing interrupts the silence here.

Only ten miles away is the port town of Holyhead, not just offering the convenience of supermarkets but also links to Ireland. The A55 expressway is 10 minutes giving easy access to explore the beauty of the Isle of Anglesey and with the majestic Snowdonia mountain range only a thirty minute drive away.
