We have stayed here twice in the Aspen & Willow Caravans, very friendly welcome with fresh eggs and lush home made cake. The caravans are modern, spotlessly clean and the situation is just beautiful, quiet and tranquil. Our little dog was also made to feel very welcome. Clare & Jenny are fabulous hosts who cannot do enough for you. We...

Penrhyn Mawr is situated in a less travelled corner of beautiful Anglesey and has a unique feel as a result with Snowdonia mountains as backdrop and the award winning Newborough beach a short drive away. A warm and informal welcome awaited us upon arrival from Jenny who's affection for the area is obvious and infectious. We occupied the single bedroom...

We stayed here for 1 week with our tow young children aged 4 and 6. Claire and Rai were the most welcoming hosts I've ever encountered, right from the first enquiry we made about the cottage. Claire took the time to send us some leaflets through the post ahead of our stay to help us plan it. When we arrived...

About the neighbourhood
The accommodation is situated off the A4080 about 2 miles from the village of Dwyran. It is also near to the renowned Newborough forest and beach of Llandwen. The village of Dwyran, with its 12th Century parish church, is largely residential and is sited on the South bank of the Afon, a small river that takes its name from Brigantia, Goddess of the ancient Celts. Just outside the village is the Anglesey Model Village where many of the Island's landmarks are recreated in miniature. South of Dwyran, lanes lead through woods and fields to the Menai Strait. Visit Tal y Foel Riding Centre and other attractions such as the Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel farm, Henblas Country Park and glorious clean beaches just a ten minute drive away.
