About the home
The property, formally a restaurant, has been tastefully restored and converted into two beautiful holiday Cottages. Both Cottages enjoy all modern conveniences whilst remaining full of character. Penrhyn Mawr Cottage, sleeps 4, has an upstairs lounge with stunning views across the Menai Strait and the Snowdonia Mountain range down to the Llyn Peninsula. Together, the properties offer high quality accommodation for up to 8 people; ideal for 2 families who want to holiday together and yet maintain their individual privacy. Each property has its own private garden with table, chairs and BBQ. The Beautiful sandy beaches, Riding Centre, Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel farm, Golf driving range and many other fabulous attractions are just a short drive away.
The essence of Penrhyn Mawr is one of peace and tranquillity; a chance to get away from the madding crowd and relax in this quiet location. Therefore, it is better suited to adults, and families with older children, who appreciate a quiet environment.

The North Wales / Anglesey region
Beyond the mountains of Snowdonia lie 2 famous bridges across the Menai Strait. They lead to an island where peaceful lanes wind to lakes, forests and long, sandy beaches. It is easy to imagine past centuries - druids cursing the Roman invaders, archers loosing arrows at castle battlements, or tall ships sailing up the Menai Strait from a voyage around Cape Horn. However, Anglesey does not live in the past. It is a centre of modern Welsh culture and language which offers a welcome to people from all over the world. Many visitors come to Anglesey for family holidays, to sail, walk or fish, to explore rock pools or watch birds. It is an unspoiled island, to relax and enjoy the peaceful farmland, pretty villages historic towns and the panoramic views of the mountains and the sea.
The Castaways and Penrhyn Mawr Cottage offer perfect peace ans quiet in an idyllic location. But at the same time, it's only 10 minutes drive to the nearest beach and has access to all the lovely beaches that Anglesey affords. A 25 minute drive takes you straight into the Snowdonia National Park.
The Llanfairpwllgwyngyll / Dwyran area
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.
Kite surfing, wind surfing and sailing on pristine beaches with a Europena Blue Flag award.
Walkers can enjoy the coastal path with magnificent scenery and wonderful wildlife.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Along the A55 and across the Britannia Bridge to the Isle of Anglesey. As you cross the bridge take the first slip-road (Junction 8a) and turn left towards Llanfairpwll. You will see the Marquis of Anglesey's Column on your right. About 200 yds past the Column, just as you enter the 30 mph area, turn left onto the A4080 towards Brynsiencyn and Newborough.
After passing through the village of Brynsiencyn continue on for approx. 2 miles. Ignore the left turn for the Sea Zoo and Foel Farm Park and also the first right turn for the villages of Dwyran and Llangaffo (B4419). At the second right turn for Dwyran you will see a local sign for the Isle of Anglesey Riding Centre (see opposite). Turn left at this staggered junction. Continue now for about 200m (approx. 20 seconds) and follow the No Through Road sign. After a further 250m (approx. 30 seconds) turn right (by the Caravan Club sign), another No Through Road, and follow the road for ½ a mile (approx. 50 seconds).You should have a fine view of the Snowdonia Mountains and the Lleyn Peninsula at this stage (weather permitting!). Turn left down the farm track to Penrhyn Mawr.

If you want the high life with the fast pace and all the high tech modern gagets to go with it you will totally hate this place. We however just wanted to watch TV in a cosy little lounge when the rain came down hard and when it didn't, wonder out down a country lane with our dog, whilst enjoying some peace and quiet in tranquil surroundings. As returning visitors we love it. Clare and Rayton are the perfect hosts who say hello and give a warm welcome and then leave you to enjoy your stay but are on hand if you really need them. The kitchen is very well equiped and is idea for cooking up recipies while you have the time to do it. The beds are comfy for a good nights sleep but you must remember your own linen as this isn't provided. There is no WiFi but there is a small portable HiFi which plays CDs. There is Sky TV but we didn't have a good mobile signal which we love as having busy lives it was great to just switch off. We will be back!!!!
Thank you ! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay again this year at The Castaways. Most of our visitors return year after year. We will continue to keep the standard high and as you rightly point out it is for those seeking peace and quiet with great views. Home from Home !
