Clean, simple living in a neat and tidy chalet lodge set in a stunning landscape half a mile from the sea on the beautiful isle of Anglesey's northern coastline. The Lodge is tucked away down a farm track, half a mile from the main A5025 heading out of Almwch towards Cemaes and as such offers peace and tranquility away from traffic noise & city living. It is set on the dramatic Anglesey Coastal Path and there are stunning walks to be had along the heritage coast, along with fishing, swimming, beach days, plenty of archaeological sites to visit, gorgeous views to inspire artists to paint and poets to write, golf only 2 miles down the road at the challenging Bull Bay Golf Club and pretty fishing villages nearby offering pubs and restaurants for evenings out. The Lodge has a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, electric cooker and microwave; a family bathroom consisting of bath, sink & toilet supplied by hot water from an immersion heater; 2 double bedrooms and a small kids room with bunk beds (sleeps 4 adults and 2 children - a travel cot and high chair can be provided if needed), a large lounge heated by electric fire with small tv & freesat & a large selection of dvds & some books to keep everyone occupied and finally a pretty dining area to seat 6. There are panoramic views across the bay down to the derelict victorian brickworks on the beach at Porth Wen and around the surrounding countryside. This is an ideal place for bird watchers and anyone with an interest in nature. Come and have an unwinding, relaxing long weekend or spend a week or two exploring the island and all Anglesey has to offer. Well behaved pets are welcome at a small charge; a dog cage can be provided if needed and there is a safe secure garden for children & dogs to run around in. Cars can be parked right next to the Lodge in the garden, so your car will be safely tucked out the way.

Anglesey is an island packed with sites of archaeological and natural interest. There are beautiful sandy beaches and dramatic coastline of wild cliffs with an abundance of bird life. The sea fishing is amazing, there is a challenging golf course 3km down the road at Bull Bay and of course for ramblers and seasoned walkers there is the Anglesey Coastal Path - 200 km of the most gorgeous scenery to follow right next to the sea all the way round the island. Newborough Forest comes right down to the sea, ending in sand dunes. Parys Mountain offers a spectacular, alien landscape to explore if you follow the Copper Mountain Trail and visit mines that have been on the site since Neolithic times. There are Neolithic chambered tombs and standing stones galore to discover, and sites such as Din Lligwy to explore for a taste of how our ancient ancestors used to live. Anglesey offers history all the way from Neolithic, through roman, Viking, & medieval all the way to present day. It also offers beautiful scenery to inspire artists and photographers and there are a number of art galleries to visit including those in the pretty fishing village of Cemaes on the north coast. Horse riding is on offer along with carting near Holyhead and there are country lanes in abundance to explore on bicycles. The island is close enough to mainland Wales to be able to visit attractions such as Snowdonia and all the castles. It also has the port at Holyhead which has ferry crossings to Ireland, making a day trip to Dublin a possibility.
The immediate area of the Lodge is farmland next to the bay of Porth Wen, home of the enigmatic ruined brickworks right on the beach. Little sailing boats often visit the bay to anchor up for fishing, crabbing or to spend time on the beach. There is a pair of ravens nesting on the cliffs which can be heard making their unusual 'kronk kronk' sound as they wheel & turn upside down overhead. A pair of buzzards can often be seen being hassled by crows - in fact, this location is a haven for bird watchers. The closest neighbours are sheep! A short walk over the headland of Torllwyn leads onto the next headland which is an Iron Age hill fort, and further on the path leads down to another ruined brickworks, almost more picturesque than the first. Peace, quiet and tranquility are what can be expected here along with fresh clear sea air & breathtaking beautiful panoramic views. At night, the sky is ablaze with every star in the universe, as there is no light pollution here to obscure the view. It is truly a magical place to spend some precious time.
