The North Wales region
North Wales is extraordinarily beautiful with both sea and mountains. Anglesey is less than half an hour away from two historic towns castle towns of Conwy and Caernarfon both have Marinas and sailing facilities are available all along the coast of North Wales.
Just beyond Conwy is the beautiful Victorian town of Llandudno which has one of the most beautiful promenades and traditional pier. Llandudno nestles at the bottom of the Orme and copper mine, and houses a Ski Slope, Tobbogan Run and Cable Car.
Within half an hour of Anglesey, Snowdonia National Park provides a wealth of activities including walking, climbing, mountaineering, cycling, canoeing, white water rafting, and Skiing.
The Isle of Anglesey provides an unspoilt paradise accessed from the mainland via two historic bridges. The Menai Suspension Bridge is a fine example of Telfords engineering. The Britannia Bridge built by Stevenson is another example of fine engineering, burnt and rebuilt it is now both a road and railway bridge.
Underneath the bridge you'll find the original stone Lions. Both Bridges cross the Menai Straits which is an exciting stretch of water for water sports and has the treacherous Swillies. With only two access routes Anglesey is managing to re-collanise the Red Squirrel.
Anglesey is best loved for it's stunning and varied coastal scenery from it's wonderful sandy beaches to it's isolated coves and tiny seaside villages. A well marked but unspoilt coastal path takes you around the island in approximately 10 days of walking. The dramatic weather and rugged countryside make it an ever changing landscape.
The island is steeped in history with historical towns such as Amlwch, Llangefni and Holyhead, and the beautiful castle town of Beaumaris with it's own Marina. The lighthouses of Penmon, South Stack and the old lighthouse at Ynys Llanddwyn are popular tourist attractions. It is said that two monks crossed eachother walking from the furthermost lighthouses Penmon to South Stack one with a red face and one with a white face.
The pretty historic fishing village of Moelfre is located on the popular East coast of Anglesey. It is steeped in maritime history as it was the location for the wreck of the `Royal Charter' in 1859. The `state of the art' working Life Boat Station and Crew are seen daily practicing to save lives and there's a wealth of local history found at the Seawatch Centre which is within easy walking distance of the cottage.
The furthermost points on the island are no more than 40 minutes drive away making it an ideal holiday destination.
Moelfre houses the Kimnel Arms Pub and award winning Ann's Pantry Cafe and Restaurant, with a stream running between them, and both overlooking the pretty fishing bay. There are some interesting shops including Tym Pen Stryd Craft and Tea Shop selling unusual gifts, arts and crafts.
The Anglesey Coastal Path begins and ends at the bottom of Charter Cottage, winding around the whole of the Anglesey Coastal Path. If you walk it in stages you can either use and plant a second car, or use the local bus service to take you to each stage, taking approximately 10 stages to complete.
The beaches at Traeth Bychan, Lligwy, Abberfraw, Rhosneigr and Red Wharf Bay are second to none, making Moelfre an ideal location for water sports including windsurfing, kite surfing, sailing and water skiing. Traeth Bychan also has a lovely Cafe and Water Sport Shop. There are five premier Golf Courses on the island plus 4 nine hole courses (one of which is 10 minutes drive from Moelfe).
Anglesey hosts a Walking Festival in the month of May with daily activities including the famous Monk Lighthouse to Lighthouse Walk, guided nature rambles, copper mine tour, and bat watching. The person who walks the highest official mileage wins a meal for two in the beautiful stately Tresgawen Hall.
Anglesey also has a wealth of historic venues including burial sites, viking traces, and castles. You can visit Anglesey Sea Zoo, Pili Butterfly Palas, and Foel Farm.
Moelfre hosts an annual Lifeboat Day which is a fun filled day and night.
Anglesey has a number of well signposted Cycle Routes all over the island. If you cycle over the Bridge you then have a choice of cycling the North Wales Coastal Cycle Path (or you can walk any of the Cycle Routes) heading either beyond Caernarfon or the other direction towards Rhyl.
If you fancy leaving Moelfre for an evening out, Anglesey hosts some fabulous eateries including the Ship Inn, Boathouse Cafe and Restaurant and St Davids Restaurant in the beautiful Red Wharf Bay, The Bridge in Menai Bridge overlooking the Menai Suspension Bridge, and the Pilot Boat as you head of of Moelfre are all worth visiting.

After just reading the last review I felt I had to comment also. We were so disappointed after the description of the cottage fell short. We travelled with my elderly mother on what may be her last ho… More
Thank you for your constructive feedback. I'm sorry that you felt you've been misled as in response to your initial enquiry that `your mother was a little unsteady and if there were bedrooms on the ground floor or if the stairs were steep if not' we responded `that there is not a bedroom downstairs I'm afraid but the stair case is wide with a handrail.' We have had elderly people staying with no problem. The only reference to my elderly mother in law was that she lives next to the Cottage and says that you'll have the peace and quiet you're looking for. I'm sorry if you feel that we misrepresented this. The storm damage has been repaired. We will in future ensure that the garden furniture is cleaned on a weekly basis although it is unavoidable during the week if the weather is bad. We did inform you prior to your stay that the fields in front of the cottage were privately owned which ensures that your views remain uninterrupted but that you have no access to the fields without permission. The cottage does have a dust pan and brush and a coal scuttle but we will review if any other equipment is needed for future visits to the cottage. As I say, I'm really sorry if you feel we have misrepresented Charter Cottage and we would be happy to offer you a discount for a future visit. Kind regards.

The cottage was spacious and situated in a good position. However on entering the cottage it had a very musty smell in the living room. We were only able to open one window and the catch was broken on… More
Thank you for you review. We were pleased to hear that you found Charter Cottage to be spacious and situated in a good position, but disappointed that the cottage didn't live up to your expectations. We have not had any comments since 2010 about Charter Cottage smelling musty, but we will look into this for future visitors. Charter Cottage has a dishwasher and we supply plenty of dishwasher tablets, so we were surprised that you found the any crockery or cutlery hadn't been washed but we will ensure that this is checked in future. All the windows open and the catch on the one window that you mention has been mended since your visit. The cleaning of the inside of the windows is on the cleaning schedule, so we will ensure this is being followed. As I said, we really appreciate constructive feedback and hope that you return again to find that your comments have been actioned. More than happy to give you a discount for a return visit. Kind regards.

"Not what we expected, we felt the description was misleading."
We visit Anglesey every year and have stayed in Moelfre over the past several years. The cottage we usually stay in wasn't available so we turned to Tripadvisor and Holidaylettings to search for … More
We are really sorry to hear your complaint. We have proudly run Charter Cottage since 2010 and have never received a complaint. We are really sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Charter Cottage and we have corresponded directly with you in response to your complaint and hope to resolve this mutually. We do have to clarify a couple of points for our future and returning clients:-
* We have never stated a private garden but a private patio area
* Charter Cottage is near the beach and our description stated it was 5 minutes walk to the nearest beach.
* We informed you before you arrived that the fields in front of Charter Cottage were privately owned and we have never mentioned public liability insurance.
* The outside of the row of cottages were in the process of being repainted and we requested Charter Cottage to be painted last at the end of the holiday season so as not to impinge on visitors.
* The old tin platter is an antique.
* The rear of the cottage has no brambles, and you will appreciate that we had had a storm as you arrived so the fence around the oil tank had been blown down and the bench had been broken, and it was not possible to clean the back area in time for your arrival, but we will ensure if this happens again that it is cleared during the stay.
* Access to all the cottages in the row is in front, and we will review this in light of your comments with our family who own the cottages.
* We do not advertise as dog friendly but that a well behaved dog is allowed.
As we have stated, we look forward to resolving this with you to our mutual satisfaction. Kind regards.
