The Long Cottage
The Long Cottage is a charming hideaway in the peaceful Anglesey countryside with the sea delightfully close.
Wind your way along a lane and you will find The Long Cottage tucked away into the side of a hill. Looking out lovingly across the countryside is this dreamy retreat for four, with views to the Menai Strait and Snowdonia mountains beyond. Surrounded by farming countryside, this semi-detached cottage, with the owners next door, offers easy access to wonderful Anglesey coastal walks. A farm over the road makes this a tractor lover’s delight.
The Long Cottage has been here forever but has been renovated in a pleasing country style. Enter a space of old beams and newly painted walls. The enormous cream kitchen, that houses a huge wooden table with benches awaiting hungry guests, is light and airy. Patio doors saturate the room with light and bring the garden in for all to enjoy. On sunny days seat yourself around the picnic bench outside and tuck into freshly caught fish or other locally bought produce – BBQ heaven!
Grab a book and snuggle up on one of the comfy sofas in the rustic sitting room with a colourful rug beneath your feet to keep you in good cheer. Guests will feel totally spoilt by the full Sky package to keep them entertained – or grab a pack of cards and deal away at the card table. Loser washes up!
Sleepyheads can climb the open staircase to two bedrooms that are lightly furnished in a country style. The double bedroom has wonderful views across the lush pastures to the sea and mountains beyond, while the twin room is light and airy and has wonderful cheery bedding. The bathroom sits in between and is dressed elegantly with a modern shower to help wake up sleepy heads or to soothe tired walking limbs at the end of the day.
For those who wish to bring their horse on a holiday of a lifetime then, for a little extra, they can stay too! The stabling is on a livery yard just down from The Long Cottage with a full-size outdoor dressage ménage for schooling. Imagine taking yourself for a hack on your own horse – down the lane to the local beach or attach your trailer and off you go to the marked trails at Newborough Forest!
The historic town of Beaumaris is just down the road and it has an all year round buzz to it. With plenty of restaurants, shops and even a castle you won’t be short of things to do! Boat trips around Puffin Island and fishing can be organised from here. On a practical point, the village shop is a mile away in Llangoed or further along in Menai Bridge you will find a Waitrose.
Llaeniog and Cynlais beaches are about a half a mile walk down country lanes so a real bonus for walkers. Llanddona Beach and the hidden cove called White Beach are also within easy driving distance. For beach bunnies, you will love the extra storage space in the garage for your surfboards or kayaks.
The Long Cottage is a brilliant base for walkers, surfers, horse riders, cyclists, sailors or dog walkers. A great holiday cottage for just about everyone!

” Travelled to Anglesey early over the bank holiday weekend and did a little sight seeing before receiving a text from the Owner to say the cottage was ready for us! Fortunately we were close by Puffin Island so drove up to the cottage to drop off our things. We were met by the Owner with the keys and were very pleased as the cottage is lovely, in a great location with beautiful views. Inside was spacious and very clean with everything that we needed for the weekend. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t great but the cottage was lovely and warm with loads of piping hot water. The cottage also had wifi much to my kids delight! It also has Sky TV and a DVD. It was great and we are looking forward to returning soon. “
” What a fantastic mini break we had here. We were met by Melody on arrival, a lovely lady who was very helpful. The cottage is simply perfect and spacious, very clean and tastefully decorated, it had everything you would want or need, including a garage with washing machine and dryer. Outside a well kept large garden with parking and a little wander down the lane takes you to the water’s edge. A 5 minute drive takes you into Beaumaris. We loved every minute and will definitely be going back !!!“
” We arrived on Good Friday having booked the cottage “last minute” and received a very warm welcome. The place was very tidy and there was off road, enclosed parking. Ideal for people with young kids or pets as the front garden was quite large. The view is good with glimpses of the Menai Straits from the 1st floor windows. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of utensils, pots and crockery for cooking with. The cottage was also very warm and insulated, (which was good considering the storm we had). Beaumaris was a 5 minute journey by car while there were lots of local walking opportunities and it was beautifully quiet in the evenings. “
