“ I have just returned home after a fabulous week in the Lighthouse keeper's cottage at Point Lynas. For people who read Enid Blyton's Famous Five books and hankered after the adventure and fun of staying somewhere a bit different then this is the place for you.
The owners, Robin and Iona, were very welcoming, leaving chocolate and Welsh cakes out for us. Sadly, they were away when we arrived as Iona usually makes a fresh batch of scones for visitors....I look forward to them on my next visit! The cottage is well equipped with everything we would need to cook with. It is comfortable and the perfect place to relax in after a day out on the beach or visiting all the interesting places on the island.
It was a joy to watch dolphins playing about in the sea in the mornings. There is something very special about these creatures. The wind blew a bit of a hooley most days, which is to expected on the edge of the Irish Sea. At night there were creaks and groans as the wind battered against the walls, but this was all part of the wonderful experience of staying in a lighthouse. There was heat, an open fire if we wished and plenty of hot water for showers so we never felt the cold.
Being out on the headland there was no light pollution at night and so the sky lit up with thousands of stars.
There is a beach at the bottom of the lane which is only a short walk, but there are so many places within driving distance. We went to Cemaes Bay, Benlech and Rosneigr. Moelfre, Red Wharf Bay and Beaumaris were favourite haunts of ours too.
I will definitely arrange to stay here again....I had a fabulous holiday :) ”
“ We and our family stayed at East cottage in May. The hosts were delightful , beds comfy. Showers wonderful . Our only drawer back was that we didn't realize that there was a public footpath / right of way all around the complex.A bit disconcerting when you are sitting on the loo and people are walking past..Stunning views from the loo and the dining room. ”
“ An April week in East and West Cottages with bright sunshine, some cloud but little rain brought delight. A generous, prettily laid tea was laid when we arrived, complete with birthday cake, scones and cream and strawberries with chocolate eggs for the Easter Sunday hunt for the children. Morning sun on the breakfast table in East Cottage, sunsets from West Cottage sitting room; access to the lighthouse with the keepers and the chance for children to activate the foghorn; choughs feeding outside the windows and ponies grazing; warmth and comfort to return to or for those who had some work to do, reading or painting to enjoy, clarinet to practise! The Great Orme and the mountains came and went with the visibility but the sea - calm and rough - was always there to hear and watch in the changing light; porpoises were only glimpsed once (thank you, gulls, for alerting us; one small adder spotted; swallows arrived in small groups and terns in plenty at Cemlyn Bay and diving at full tide in Church Bay and off Llanddwyn;seals basking off Llanddwyn Island; twice the Isle of Man appeared on the horizon at sunset. We criss-crossed the island from Llanddwyn to Llugwy; from South Stack and Porthdafarch to Moel y Don; from Church Bay to North Stack (open studio) and Oriel Ynys Mon (gallery). The coastal path was explored in both directions from "home" on Point Lynas, in sections on Holy Island and towards Carmel Point from Church Bay. Children were free to use the little road from the cottages to Porth Eilian - by bike, scooters (the 2 4 year-olds)or on foot. Adults (some of them)went for runs in the morning; cooking was shared between all and in both cottages; games were played. Discreetly in the background but always friendly and helpful Iona and Robin had provided exactly what I had hoped for: a memorable return to Anglesey (where I spent many childhood years) with 17 of my family (some in another cottage). I hope I shall return, with whomever I can entice (should be easy)to join me. Robin and Iona, beware! And thank you. ”
“ What a delight. High standard of accommodation, very peaceful location and friendly hosts and wildlife. Would highly recommend this property. ”
