    “Very comfortable and generally well equipped.”

    It would be helpful if some basic cleaning items were to be provided (dustpan and brush at the very least) and there were no oven gloves or baking tray for the oven. We found the front door impossibly difficult to open from the outside (I think we were lucky to be able to open it when we first arrived..it wasn't a good start to the stay) and resorted to using the back door. Perhaps we are just getting feeble as we get older!

The property

How fabulous to spend a great holiday in a lovely old copper miners’ cottage in the Port of Amlwch.

The Port was thriving in 1853 because mines in the 18th & 19th century on Parys Mountain were the largest in the world being exported from the harbour.

The cottage is nearly 200 hundred years old with its quaint quirkiness and original thick walls and views of Parys Mountain from the windows.

The cottage has been decorated inside with Welsh slate floors, bathroom, and kitchen.

Wonderful furniture and a relaxing garden with table, chairs, umbrella and of course, the relaxing summerhouse in the garden.

The summerhouse has a TV, a workstation, an easel, a cream leather settee, and a wooden bistro seat so you can picture yourself doing some artwork or just chilling with a glass of wine or coffee and just relax!

When you arrive there is a well-maintained stone driveway which could hold 2-3 cars or street parking opposite.

On approach to the house is the big porch where you can leave your coats and shoes before stepping into the living/dining room prepared for up to five people to savour a lovely meal together or sit in front of the large Smart TV to enjoy a good film etc after a great day out at the beach or many other attractions available for you to explore.

The kitchen is equipped with all that you need to create tasty dishes, and the quirky utility room where the washing machine is positioned and entrance to the back garden.

The bathroom is equipped with bath and shower ready for you to freshen up after a great day out sightseeing, laughing, and having a good time!

When you find your eyes are telling you that it’s time to sleep following the wooden stairwell to find three well-presented bedrooms.

There is a huge sumptuous super-king bed in the main room, the second bedroom has an inviting king-size bed, and the third bedroom holds a new sofa bed where either one adult or child could sleep, or if you have an infant the bedroom can be transformed into a baby room with a travel cot, baby blanket, highchair and baby food plate provided.

A stair gate is erected on top of the stairwell for safety.

If the room is not used for a guest, the sofa bed can be put into a settee for you to relax on and read etc.

The coastal path is only a short distance from Dolwar, turn right when leaving Dolwar and you will come to the port where you will find pubs, cafes, and an award-winning chippy!

There is also a nice secure child play area with swings etc to keep the kids occupied from time to time.

The port and village are steeped in history visit the Copper Miners Kingdom Museum, Geo Mon where you can learn all about the geology of the area.

Local fisherman and their boats sometimes share their catch on the quay side.

If you are into golfing and fishing you are in the right place.

The Copper Kingdom is a unique landscape of Parys Mountain in every shad of yellow, brown and orange imaginable.

In the 18th-century people came from all over the UK to dig for copper, prompting it to become the Welsh Copper Rush.

South Stack Lighthouse is on its own tiny island, just getting there is an adventure.

It has 400 steps above big waves great for epic views.

Anglesey Farmers Market is held every third Saturday of each month.

Amlwch market is every Friday.

where you can have a coffee while buying the fresh farmers produce.

Amlwch has everything you need in its village petrol, ironmongers, charity shops, Indian, Chinese takeaway, beauty and hairdressers, craft shops, Co-op and Spar all in walking distance from Dolwar.

What else could you ask for?

If you fancy walking there are plenty of those for a dip, hire a kayak etc. This beautiful island ofAnglesey is off the north-west coast of Wales.

The island includes Holy Island (Holyhead) across the narrow Cymyran Strait and some islets and skerries.

Anglesey island is about 260 square miles, is the largest in Wales, the largest in Britain, largest in the Irish Sea and near the Isle of Man.

The largest town is Holyhead on Holy Island, whose ferry service with Ireland handles over two million passengers a year.

The Menai Strait to the mainland is spanned by the Menai Suspension Bridge, designed by Thomas Telford in 1826, and the Britannia Bridge, built in 1850 and replaced in 1980.

LLanddwyn beach has a ruined church once home to Saint Dwynwen the Welsh patron saint of lovers from the 5th-century AD.

Be sure to visit Anglesey Sea Zoo, which features a unique aquarium with over 40 tanks, or if that isn’t your thing, visit the esteemed 18th-century Plas Newydd House and Gardens, offering panoramic views out towards Snowdonia.

For a wildlife rich walk, visit the 25-acre Dingle Nature Reserve which rests near the Cefni River, or for a day at the beach head to Lligwy, where you may be able to spot dolphins and seals!

Continue onto Beaumaris where you can delve into history at the remarkable 13th-century Beaumaris Castle.

Cemas Bay Traeth Bach Beach are also within easy reach, where along the way, you find a fresh milk shed where you can purchase fresh milk from the local cows, yoghurt, cheese etc.

Carry on up that road towards an old 16th Century Llanbadrig church which is worth seeing with its steep coastal walk overlooking the sea.

Don’t miss out on a memorable stay at Dolwar.
