We had an animated discussion in the office last week around which of our Anglesey accommodation we like the most. And after much debate, we decided to ask Luke, our reporting expert, to tell us which ones our guests most regularly stay in.

Menai Holidays look after just under 300 holiday cottages on Anglesey so, as you can imagine, there is quite some competition. The results are now in and in ascending order we are pleased to share our 10 most popular Anglesey cottages.
