The North Wales region
North Wales is famed for its mountains, beaches and castles.
Aberdwr is just 30 minutes drive from the heart of Snowdonia. Everyone should go to the top of Snowdon at least once, but for something more interesting try one of the Glyders, or for young children take a picnic to Aber Falls or up the Rivals.
Anglesey has miles of sandy beaches. Take a walk along Newborough beach to Llanddwyn Island, wander over the sands of Red Wharf Bay or try any section of the Anglesey Coastal Path.
Edward I's castles at Beaumaris, Caernarvon and Conway should not be missed. Two of the National Trust's most popular properties, Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd, are nearby. Further afield you will find Portmerion and plenty more castles.
Keen gardeners should head to Bodnant Gardens, Crug Farm Nursery, Bodysgallen Hall or the local garden of Plas Cadnant.
Sailors and would-be sailors can sign up for courses at Plas Menai, National Sailing School.
If the weather is bad there is still plenty to do. Take in a local climbing wall, go under the mountains and visit a slate mine, go bodysurfing on one of the beaches or visit one of those castles.
100 yds along the beach you will find the local pub, The Gazelle. Grab a drink while the children go crabbing off the jetty.
Head to picturesque Beamaris for local shops and restaurants including the award winning Ye Olde Bulls Head.
Visit the RNLI station and take a boat trip around Puffin Island.
For general grocery shopping there is a Waitrose in Menai Bridge and a Tesco in Bangor. But don't miss the fine local produce including beef, cheese, mussels and lobsters (we have a pan big enough to cook them).
Local sporting centres include:
Plas Menai National Sailing Centre 15 minutes.
Tal y Foel Riding School 25 minutes
Baron Hill Golf Club 10 minutes

"Fantastic house for a mixed-aged extended family group"
We had an amazing week at Aberdwr and would highly recommend it. We were a group ranging in age from 1 year to 72 years with representatives from nearly every decade! The house was absolutely perfect… More

"Perfect to chill out, incredible view"
I booked this place based on the photo of the view from the kitchen and in fact the reality is much better. The accomodation is huge,in the living area there's basically no walls but large windows where you can just enjoy the view and feel the fresh air. One special mention to the beds (we slept like babies-) ) and to the lovely neighbours.
It was great and perfectly situated so you can be anywhere that worse a visit in like than 1/2 hour ...perfect.

"Brilliant time had in a great house with perfect views!!"
We decided to book a house near the sea for 3 nights over New Year, literally at the last minute, and stumbled across this beautiful place.
The owner was more than helpful in making sure the house was ready. We were amazed at the location, which has fabulous views of the Menai Straights, and the quality of accommodation at the house.
The house is equipped to the hilt, you do not have to take anything but yourselves and provisions as you will want for nothing!
There is plenty of space inside and out, the kids loved the games room which kept them occupied, and the terrace down to the water was really nice.
We will hopefully be back soon, I would highly recommend this place for a long weekend or an extended holiday- great value for money!!

"Incredible view whatever the weather"
Loved the house, very comfortable, great kitchen for chef rivalry and incredible view for dining in or outside. It will cost me a new dining table and bedding at my home! I was slightly worried about the access for my mother but the owner supplied extra photos of the access steps and it was easy in the end. The location is great, you can see the weather in the mountains so when it was good we walked Snowdon, but lovely walks all around Anglesey which gets much better weather than the mountains. Really good cycling as well with national cycle routes on very quiet roads. Bird watching off the terrace is also very good.
Local waitrose has everything a chef could want.

"Classic with modern features, spacious with panoramic views"
We stayed at Aberdwr during the last week of July. It is ideally situated in between Menai Bridge and beautiful Beaumaris. If coming from Menai Bridge you will pass the Waitrose Supermarket which is a ten minute drive from the house. We were very impressed by the quality of the towels(White Company), linen bedding and Royal Doulton crockery etc..
There are 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms plus an extra toilet. So much space and fantastic views over the Menai Straits. Everything about the house says quality, it feels like the type of place where Arthur Ransome would have written Swallows and Amazons. I don't want to promote the place too much as I want to keep it a secret for us..... I am very particular about cleanliness and quality and this place was pristine

"Superb house with stunning views"
We have just returned from a week's stay at Aberdwr. We were a family group of ten, ranging from grandparents to babies. From the minute we walked in we felt at home. The house is very comfortable, and there was nothing we could have wanted. The large modern luxury kitchen with seating for 10 or 12 is wonderful, with amazing views across the Menai Strait; these spectacular views can be enjoyed from the terraces and the large windows in the sitting room and the family/games room, as well as from the bedrooms. The Games Room with table tennis and wi-fi was indispensible when the weather was disappointing. Much thought has been given to providing everything that can make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The linen, including towels, were of luxury quality and much appreciated. Every person in our party, aged from 8 months to 67years, had a wonderful holiday. We cannot recommend Aberdwr too highly.
