It has stunning views to Snowdonia and across the Irish Sea and is visible from many points across Anglesey.
Tan Y Cytiau (literally translated as 'Beneath the Ancient Houses' is located adjacent to this ancient site where early settlers from 500BC once lived. Remains of the Hut Cirlcles still exist and following recent excavations the houses can be clearly identified and examples of stone furniture still remain.
The former owners wing and principal rooms of the house are now available to rent as one self contained private house with access to the beautiful grounds.
Located near the popular Porth Dafarch and Trearddur Bay beaches, South Stack Lighthouse & Elins Tower and Holyhead Country park there is plenty to see and do. The house is a wonderful peaceful retreat from nearby towns and excellent for wild life lovers. Or relax inside the house with outstanding interiors and stunning sea and mountain views from almost all rooms.

The North Wales / Anglesey region
"If you want to really go for a coastline walk, you should go to Anglesey" - Bryn Terfel, International Opera Singer.
A place like no other - the Isle of Anglesey offers unparalleled beauty, amazing adventures, serious solitude and a warm welcome. As the diamond of Wales we have many facets to our glorious Island and invite you to come and explore.
Anglesey abounds with areas where interesting birds, plants and other wildlife can be seen and enjoyed. Being an island it has over 100 miles of coastline with varied habitats, such as sea cliffs, dunes and beaches, salt marshes and mud flats. These provide homes for a wide variety of animals and also harbour a varied flora. Inland much of the island is low lying agricultural land. Numerous areas are flooded and marshy, providing for a whole other set of plants and animals.
Anglesey and especially South Stack and Holyhead Mountain are also a geologist's heaven, with a wide range of often complex rock formations, ranging from the Precambrian to the Carboniferous. This is topped off with some excellent displays of the effects of Quaternary glaciations.
Further afield but still accessible for a day trip are the local castles, inherent of North Wales, Caernardon, Conwy, Criccieth and of course Boedlwyddan - with family links to Tan Y Cytiau itself. Porthmadog which has Portmeirion, the Italiante village used in the film The Prisoner, is about an hour away.

Although the weather was not great, it did not stop us enjoying our stay there. The grandchildren and Hollie the dog loved the walks, which are close to house. They enjoyed the beaches also nearby. The house was very spacious , as was the garden with fantastic views. In all we would love to go back next year.
