Bryn Mel

A stunning dog friendly stone cottage near Beaumaris

Bryn Mel, or Honey Hill Cottage, is a truly beautiful stone cottage with heaps of character – a true bolthole and hideaway.

Tucked away down a beautiful lane but within easy walking distance of the village shop, and a couple of miles away from the seaside town of Beaumaris. Bryn Mel has to be seen to be believed – the cottage has been renovated sympathetically to keep the original character but with all the modern perks. Sash windows let so much light in and allow the gentle colours within warm the rooms.

Park outside Bryn Mel on the gated drive and open the kitchen door and prepare yourself to be enveloped in a warm hug.  Welcome to Bryn Mel, feel yourself unwind immediately. The warmth of the Rayburn in the light filled kitchen couldn’t summarise this cottage more. This is somewhere you come to stay and wish you didn’t have to leave. With a wonderful, enclosed garden with picnic table, swing chair and bench – not to mention fruit trees for autumn gatherings – you can choose to spend time outside listening to the birds and bees tell you how lovely this area is! This is a cottage for truly relaxing in.

The owners stay here and love to cook – and a more fully equipped kitchen will be hard to find. Choose between cooking on the Rayburn or using the modern electric hob and oven. Enjoy long cosy dinners in the kitchen or lay the table in the sitting room knowing you haven’t far to go to slump into a super comfy sofa ready to carry on chatting and catching up on everyone’s news.

The large sitting room doubles as a dining room too. Light spills in from two windows and highlights the softly painted beams and cosy cottage colours. Light the log fire when the chilly evenings return – ready for your four legged friends to lie out and relax too.  Floor cushions await younger bottoms set to win the latest board game – choose from many in the house.

Sleepy heads are off to bed – upstairs you will find 2 single bedrooms, a double and a king. Comfy beds with warming throws and pastel colours. Rest is the aim and rest you will. It is just so quiet here, save for the bird song reminding you where you are. A family bathroom with bath and shower over allows long soaks after a day exploring or brisk showers ready to embrace the day.

Hush – sleep soundly as tomorrow is another day to explore the stunning countryside around. Leave your car to rest awhile and explore the beautiful surrounding countryside on foot. Just down the lane you will find the path to Castell Aberlleiniog – a motte and bailey fortress built between 1080 and 1099. An easy walk from castle to shore brings you out at Lleiniog Beach where you can picnic at the tables or wander along the shore for more spectacular sea and mountain views. Carry on along the headland and you will reach Penmon Point. A stunning walk along the Anglesey Coastal Path to Penmon Priory and Lighthouse,  worth the miles. Sit on the pebbled beach and watch the sailing boats or take the plunge and enjoy a swim followed by a warming hot chocolate in the cafe. A photographers dream location whatever the weather.

When you are ready – jump in your car and head off to Llanddona Beach, an easy drive along the lanes or divert to White Beach, a secluded cove that doesn’t fail to please. Along the road lies Beaumaris – time to explore the most wonderful castle, shop for unique presents in the local shops or feast on local produce in one of the many restaurants or pubs. Llangoed really is so easy to get to and a great location from which to explore not only Anglesey but also Snowdonia. Within 25 minutes later you could be walking Snowdon.

“We have had a wonderful time at Bryn Mel this week. The house is fantastic, we all want to move in.  Hope you have a great season!” 

“We’ve had our best holiday here! Great cottage, one which was a pleasure to come “home” to, very comfortable. The garden is brilliant for dogs. The wine and cake was a lovely touch, especially mid fortnight! We ate well out, Ann’s Pantry, The Oyster Catcher and The Ship Inn are all worth it. You’ve done it right, many thanks!”

The location was amazing for exploring the island. We had a fantastic time visiting lots of beaches and walking.  Thank you for sharing your holiday home with us and best of luck with it!”

“Thank you for the joy of being your first guests. Such a beautiful, peaceful cottage.  You have thought of so many things to make a stay restful and like home.  Thank you. Kiddies enjoyed your garden and the car mat on rainy days.  We have loved exploring the area and trying out crabbing off the pier.  We pray blessings on your home and lettings.  Thank you again for your kindness and thoughtfulness.” (opened: August 2018)
