    “2nd time in this lovely well presented property.”

    Very high standard of cleanliness. Well equipped kitchen.Very comfy beds maybe the pillows could be updated quite thin (and no pillow protectors which I found surprising.) Thank you for welcome pack appreciated. Would not hesitate to book again.

The property

Gaerwen 2.1 miles.

Settled in a peaceful development of holiday homes in the quaint village of Llanddaniel, on the sought-after Isle of Anglesey, rests this delightful stone-built bungalow, Yr Encil - Welsh for 'The Retreat'.

Set across one level and sleeping up to six guests, Yr Encil makes an idyllic base for a small family or two couples looking to tour the delights of North Wales.

Three off-road parking spaces greet you at the foot of this lovely dwelling before stepping into the delightful open-plan living space to begin your holiday.

Sure to be the social hub of the home, the well-presented space plays host to a well-equipped kitchen, a dining table with seating for six, and a snug seating area gathered in front of a Smart TV; a lovely spot to unwind with a movie following a fun-filled day.

Utilise the range of fantastic facilities in the kitchen to prepare tasty dishes for the group, or in the warmer months, venture outdoors and fire up the barbeque, gathering together with your loved ones with a sociable seat on the patio to toast a glass of fizz, enveloped by the tranquil greenery of the garden.

As the evening grows darker, retreat back indoors and retire to either of the two sumptuous king-size bedrooms, each providing ample storage space to unpack your belongings and benefiting from access to their very own en-suite, ensuring getting ready for a day of adventure will be a breeze!

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and head off on foot to explore the ruins of Bryn Celli Ddu Burial Chamber, a Neolithic tomb famed as one of Anglesey's most prehistoric landmarks, or tour the grounds of Plas Newydd House and Gardens, a National Trust property originating from 1470.

Pack up your bucket and spade and head to the magnificent golden sands of Traeth Llanddwyn, where you can soak in the spectacular views across the bay toward the peaks of Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, and if you time it right, you can reach the tidal island of Ynys Llanddwyn on foot between high tides, the home of Saint Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers.

A scenic car journey will bring you to the town of Beaumaris, where you can board a boat and tour Puffin Island with Seacoast Safaris, marvel at the remarkable 13th century architecture of Beaumaris Castle, or for a unique experience, explore the former Victorian prisoner cells at Beaumaris Gaol.

Here you can treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy, indulge in authentic Spanish tapas or home-baked goods with a fabulous selection of eateries to choose from, or pick-up any forgotten essentials from a handful of well-stocked convenience stores.

Next stop is Rhosneigr, where you can tackle the waves of the Irish Sea and try your hand at scuba diving or surfing with expert tuition available, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, embark on a two-footed adventure or tour the sights by bike via the Anglesey Coastal Path Circular Rhosneigr Walk.

No trip to North Wales would be complete without a visit to Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, where avid outdoor adventurers can tackle the climb to the summit of Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowdon), the tallest mountain in Wales, where the Snowdon Mountain Railway makes the ascent to the summit accessible for visitors with limited mobility.

With all of this and more, choose Yr Encil as an idyllic base from which to tour the delights of the Isle of Anglesey.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
