Glan Rhyd ("By the Stream") a traditional 19th century Anglesey cottage with many heritage features. Semi-detached and not overlooked, in a secluded rural location, the cottage has a one-acre meadow with a prehistoric standing stone and bordering hedge and stream.

Glan Rhyd cottage is stone-built with period features and furniture and modern hot water and central heating. It is very characterful, quiet, warm and comfortable. Glan Rhyd is central and good for exploring - most of Anglesey is accessible within 30 minutes. It is ideal for countryside or coastal walking and excellent for birdwatching, or as a secluded country retreat. There is no landline and no internet, but the mobile signal is good.

The North Wales region

Glan Rhyd Cottage is centrally located in Anglesey, a small island with extensive open countryside and excellent beaches within two hours of both Manchester and Liverpool. The climate is maritime and moderate with frequent light rainfall. A strong Celtic history, many ancient archeological remains, one of the best preserved medieval castles in Europe at Beaumaris, and some unique early industrial sites give the island a rich historical heritage.


Llannerch-y-medd was once the central market town of Anglesey but is nowadays a quiet village with a thriving annual horse and dog show. Many old farms and cottages disappeared with the modernisation of farming in Anglesey in the later 20th century, but this district shows the increasingly popular restoration of older buildings and a renewed appreciation of their character and importance.

"Very nice and cosy hideaway cottage"

My girlfriend and me stayed here for a week in July, we used it as a base to explore Anglesey and Snowdonia. We felt at home immediately and enjoyed the privacy of the place very much. The reception was very friendly and relaxed. We felt we made a good choice.

Thank you very much for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Glan Rhyd and hope we might see you again.

"Cosy, traditional cottage in a great location"

I stayed here for a few days with friends as we wanted to explore the area with our main goal to climb Snowdon. This cottage was perfect, as we found the location excellent and very relaxing.

It was great staying at such a charming and comfortable place with great facilities. All of the essentials such as the shower, kitchen and beds were just right, which contributed to everyone having a good time.

Set in a quiet, unspoilt location it was refreshing to enjoy my break away from my usual town/city surroundings. I'd highly recommend to future guests.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Glan Rhyd and we hope you will come again.
