The North Wales 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 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.
