Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
'Swn y Mor' means 'Sound of the Sea'; the cottage is only 50 metres, through the garden and sand dunes, to Trearddur Bay's main promenade and fabulous sandy beach - without even crossing a road. It is perfect for both traditional summer bucket and spade holidays, and, with a fire blazing in the hearth, cosy winter breaks (toasting forks provided!).
Golf, fishing, sailing, diving, kayaking, walking, bird watching, motor sports, horse riding, and even Royal watching are within easy reach. The Leisure Centre at Holyhead has extensive facilities. A short drive away are fabled castles and houses, such as Caernarfon, Beaumaris, Port Meirion and Plas Newydd, and the beauty of Snowdonia's National Park. Day trips to Dublin, by ferry or fast Seacat (90 minutes), are very reasonable, and historic Chester is only 1.5 hours' drive away.
The Sea Zoo and the Pili Palas (Butterfly Palace) are both enchanting, and always worth a visit, as is Foel Farm.
There are a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants in the village, all within easy walking distance. The house has DVD and video, wi-fi, bookcase, and a well stocked games cupboard for rainy days.

Swn y Mor is believed to be one of the oldest properties in Trearddur Bay, and so has its' quirks - the floor in some rooms slopes slightly, for example.

Please note that we have a dog, and whilst every effort is made to remove all evidence of her, inevitably some hairs may remain.
The North Wales region
An historic island, Anglesey also benefits from a championship golf course at Holyhead, an international racing circuit at Ty Croes, and a 125 mile long coastal path. It has something to offer everyone, and is also now the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Will and Kate - that lifeboat station is at the bottom of Swn y Mor's garden!
Treadrdur Bay is situated on the far north western point of Anglesey, and on a clear day, the Wicklow Mountains can be seen across the Irish Sea.
A small village, it boasts a Blue Flag beach where at low tide prehistoric trees can be seen, and there are several sandy coves and bays.
Swn y Mor is a one minute walk from the Trearddur Bay Hotel, which is host to the annual Oyster Festival - from 8th October in 2011. This is a fantastic event, with eating, dancing, music, and of course a drop of the black stuff is mandatory!
There are several local shops on the doorstep to cater for your needs, and a choice of eateries. Fishing trips and boat hire are available from the boat yard, horse riding at Porth y Post, and pitch and putt golf are all within walking distance.
