Welcome to Hen Gamdda Fawr, an inviting and beautifully presented double fronted farmhouse character cottage situated in the peaceful hamlet of Marianglas just outside Benllech.

The downstairs rooms blend nicely together having matching inglenook fireplaces (one of which houses an attractive multi-fuel cast iron stove) and beamed ceilings (one of which is vaulted), both with solid wood flooring.

The dining table can seat 6 people.

The lounge is equipped with Smart TV, AV amp with Bluetooth and Airplay for music playback.

The country style kitchen is fully fitted with a Belfast sink supported by two rustic limestone pillars, built-in oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge and freezer and free standing microwave with an array of utensils.

The traditional and decorative bathroom/wet room has a freestanding rolled edge claw footed bath with shower and an eye-catching aqua marine mosaic tiled floor!

The main bedroom is impressive with its sense of space, enhanced by the lovely vaulted beamed ceiling with an en-suite shower room.

Bedroom 2 has bunk beds with removable ladder and is accessed from the top of the stairs, opposite the master bedroom.

There is a double sofa bed in the lounge that can pull out if required. A curtain can be pulled across to separate the lounge from the dining room.

“Lovely stay”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2018

Had a lovely half term break here with my daughters, they especially enjoyed lying on the sofa bed in front of the wood burner! The neighbours were also lovely, as I was ill on arrival and after phoning Helen, they came to my rescue with much needed supplies!

Owner's reply: So pleased you and your girls had a lovely half term break and so pleased we could assist on arrival. Thank you for your review. Best wishes Helen

“Well equipped”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2018

We were very impressed with the cottage. Well equipped with plenty of kitchen items that we usually find to be lacking in many rentals. Cost and comfortable. Great all round

Owner's reply: Thank you for this lovely review. I am so pleased Hen Gamdda Fawr impressed you and you found the cottage to be well equipped. We aim to please :) best wishes Helen

“Back Again For The Third Year Running And Still Loving It”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2018

Now seen as more of a home from home this fantastic Cottage is both perfectly located and suitably furnished / facilitated to give you all you could desire from a holiday in Anglesey. With only a short drive to a number of stunning beaches and coastline locations it is also quiet enough to enable you to really switch off and relax. Lots to see and do in the area for all the family. Already looking forward to next years return visit.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your wonderful review and for your family to keep returning. We’re so pleased you feel at home in the cottage and enjoy the location and all the many delights of the island too. We look forward to welcoming you again next year :) best wishes Helen

“Beautiful cottage”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2018

Stayed recently at this beautiful cottage. Absolutely spotless and incredibly cosy. Beautiful location and 15 minute walk to the beach. The owners of the cottage were very helpful and easy to communicate with, overall had a wonderful time and would definitely stay again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your great review. I’m so pleased you had a wonderful holiday. You would be welcome to return anytime.

“Great Cottage”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2018

We loved the cottage and it's location. It had everything you needed and it was very clean. Loved the bedroom. We will definitely stay there again next time we visit Anglesey.

“Lovely cottage”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2018

The cottage was everything we wanted for a mini break. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need for your stay. The cottage is in a good location which is close to the beach and also a short drive to the shops. There is a pub across the road if you fancy a drink but don’t want to walk too far. Overall we had a lovely stay, thanks Helen :)

Owner's reply: Thank you for the great review. I’m so pleased you’ve enjoyed all the benefits of the cottage. We like it how the traditional and relatively quiet pub is far enough away from the cottage yet it’s a very short walk. Please tell your family and friends about us and you’d be welcome to return any time. Thanks and best wishes Helen

“Perfect family location”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2018

Location is great, stroll down the road 5/10 minutes to a lovely little beach and a small café with shop from here you can walk the coast to Benllech or the other way to Moelfre. so many places for fantastic food from The Black Swan Trearddur Bay, Dylans Menai or the Breeze Hill Benllech. The cottage has everything you need home from home, plenty of hot water for sumptuous soaks in the roll top bath, garden is a sun trap and so peaceful, so whatever age your are this is the ideal location for all.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for this great review. I’m so pleased you had a wonderful holiday and you have enjoyed the restaurants, the cottage location, all that the cottage has to offer and the sun trap :)

“What a gem!”

Reviewed 10 May 2018

What a fabulous cottage. So cozy, peaceful and fully equipped. Perfect location to get to lots of different beaches and attractions. Had an amazing time in Wales and was a delight to come “home” to this wonderful cottage. Helen replied to any queries very promptly and was very helpful. Hope to visit again in the near future. Highly recommend this cottage and must mention the large bathtub that was a treat to soak in after a long day of walking.

Owner's reply: Thank you for this lovely review and for highly recommending Hen Gamdda Fawr cottage. So pleased you've had a wonderful holiday and would be more than happy to welcome you both back.

“A proper holiday in a fantastic cottage”

Reviewed 9 May 2018

Lovely secluded location makes you feel like you’re a million miles from home and yet the comfortable, beautifully decorated and well equipped cottage feels like you’re right at home. Only a few minutes walk to local pubs, few minutes drive to the quaint town of Molfre and just half an hour from Snowdon, we had a wonderful weekend with a mix of hiking, beach walks, pub lunches and cosy evenings in our idyllic cottage. Kitchen was fully equipped for us to cook our favourite dishes, bath and log burner makes for a relaxing and special weekend, and a huge comfy bed was wonderful after long days in the sea air. We feel so refreshed after a proper holiday having got away from it all. Everything is really well thought out from the arrival procedure collecting your key from the safe to the handy activities folder to give you inspiration if you need it. Thanks a lot Helen for your fab cottage - we’re planning our next trip already!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your wonderful review Louise. I’m so pleased you had a fantastic holiday and have discovered the many charms of the cottage and Anglesey. We look forward to welcoming you again soon to explore more. Best wishes Helen


Reviewed 9 May 2018

We've just returned from a weeks stay at Hen Gamdda Fawr Cottage. What can we stay.... absolutely perfect week. The cottage is in a perfect location, 5 minutes from Benllech Beach and most others locations are within an easy drive away. The cottage has everything and more, with the log fire a perfect way to spend an evening with a large glass of wine. The owner Helen is great at responding to queries, less than 10 minutes in some cases and we'd love to return in the future.

Owner's reply: Thank you Chris for sharing your great experience at Hen Gamdda Fawr and I’m so pleased you’ve had a perfect week at the cottage. You’d be more than welcome to return to explore more of this gem of an island. Thank you again Best wishes Helen
