Plas Elyn

A countryside bolthole to relax in…

An island of calm, Plas Elyn sits in lush Llangoed countryside just a short drive from Beaumaris and the sea. Getting here is half the fun: meander along winding lanes to find a coach house surrounded by nature.

A wildflower bright garden greets you at Plas Elyn and from the entrance, you have ways three paths to follow: Eat, relax or cook! Up the stairs to a lofty, open plan living room with a wood stove to relax by. On a clear day, the sea views are restorative from the living room window – gaze across the Strait to the mountains of Snowdonia in the distance. Sit and muse at the writing desk or bring binoculars to spot birds zipping in amongst the woodlands. The attention to detail is impressive with wonderful art and locally made lampshades. 

Or to cook which is very easy here in the wonderful modern, country kitchen with a large table for convivial breakfasts with the patio doors open to hear the birds chirp.

For lovers of mid-century design and a leisurely meal, to dine is a pleasure. The dining room has a Danish style table and Koefoed chairs and more impactive art. Two easy chairs to sit in with a whiskey and chat by an open fire after indulging evening of fine fare seem well-placed.

There is loads of character and no stuffiness as you head to sleep after that meal. Find pale bare wooden floorboards that lead down the corridor with restful bedrooms each with deep light-filled windows. Pull back the bedroom curtains in the first cream bedroom to gaze out to the loveliest of garden views from a super king-sized bed; original watercolours are poised to also distract you; Next door is a smart twin room with the same cottage garden green views. Lastly a double bedroom in serene shades and a smart new en-suite shower room.

The family bathroom is luxurious too, with underfloor heating, a stylish basin and a blissfully deep bath.

The kids will be in their element on the top floor at Plas Elyn with TV, games, toys and books to fire their imaginations. Two great twin rooms sandwich a spacious landing area. The spiral staircase is small and just about right for the smaller of the party (or the adventurous of the grown-ups with a steady head for a spiral).

Come home to drinks in the sunny little courtyard and recline outside an L-shaped sofa great for basking and lazy evenings in.

Lovely coastal hikes begin from the door. Half an hour from Plas Elyn gets you to White Beach (Fedw Fawr). Fifteen minutes and you are at the castle at Aberlleiniog or keep hiking and you will arrive at Lleiniog beach. Head along to glorious Beaumaris and dip into its buzzing restaurant scene, or if the weather is foul just hunker down around the wood-burner and enjoy the views.

You will feel right at home here.

“Thank you for a wonderful holiday at Plas Elyn.  It’s a lovely house with stylish furniture, comfy beds and a super kitchen. Our four year old Josh loved the garden.  Great walks to White Beach (a hidden gem!) and onto the Anglesey Coastal Path. Less than 10 minutes  in the car to both Beaumaris and Penmon Point. Had the best fish and chips at Neptune in Beaumaris too! It’s a great place to relax and unwind. Would love to stay here again.”

“Our family had a fantastic stay at Plas Elyn. The place is stylishly decorated, with a well-equipped kitchen and very comfortable communal areas. The beds are really comfy and the fenced-off garden provides a lovely and really safe area for the kids to play in. Anglesey is well-known for its famous beaches, but the two local beaches – White Beach and Lleniog – are really close and well worth visiting. For us Plas Elyn was the perfect place to explore the island – thoroughly recommended and we can’t wait to book again.”
