Oyster Catcher

Sleeps6   | Bedrooms3 | Bathrooms3

Walk, cycle, fish and hunker down in style in this lovingly converted barn for six

Oyster Catcher is perfectly named as it sits right by the sandy beach at Borthwen and by the Anglesey Coastal Path – come to spy the curlews and choughs and conquer the sea paths and then return to cosy up by the fire.

Original art adorns the walls, and a wood-burner encourages lounging on soft grey sofas in the large open living space with a warm oak floor. A widescreen television/ DVD player helps while away any days when you want to hunker down and hide from the outside world.

All three bedrooms at Oyster Catcher are gorgeous. Two are smallish but perfect. A twin room has a cute en-suite shower room. The twin bunk room is a delight with steps leading up to the top bunk and an extra mezzanine area for hiding away. A cute Tipi tent gives the kids a retreat too! There is a bathroom here with a small bath and shower over to wash off the salt after a dip in the sea down the lane.

The light-filled main bedroom has a delicious bed and the dreamiest views over to the coast and to the lighthouse. The window seat is a great vantage point. A handy en-suite offers peace and seclusion in the morning.

Cooks will be chuffed with the smart planked pine-floored kitchen. Everything you could possibly need has been catered for. Some freshly caught sea bass or some lamb from the award-winning butcher in Valley would be a treat around the dining table, which sits snugly in the corner with plenty of bright cushions to help all to linger over meals.

The patio area outside the kitchen is small but ample with BBQ and table and chairs. With the Anglesey Coastal Path just a brisk minute or two away from Oyster Catcher and with acres of fields and public footpaths to roam, there is plenty of space in which to immerse yourself. The old piggery offers a sunny space to unwind just off the sitting room. Watch the goings on down the country lane with a glass of something cool.

A mile and a half walk through a wealth of coves and stunning scenery and you come to Church Bay and a seafood restaurant, The Lobster Pot. The Wavecrest Cafe serves great home cooked food and cakes to die for. The local village is less than a mile away with a shop for groceries and a great new pub with wood burning stove and local food. Dogs are also welcome there.

Only a few miles away is the port town of Holyhead, with Tesco and Morrisons supermarkets and fast links to Ireland. The A55 main route in is just 10 minutes away giving easy access to the rest of Anglesey and the mainland.

Borthwen Barns are close to the privately owned Carreglwyd Country Estate and the huge fishing lake and beautiful woodland walks can be made available to all guests on request. There will be a small cost for use of the fishing in the lake.
