  • “This property is special.”

    The combination of the location (which is stunning and very peaceful) and the history, just make this such a special place to stay, its is after many years of hiring properties for holiday, my absolute favorite.

    The combination of the location (which is stunning and very peaceful) and the history, just make this such a special place to stay, its is after many years of hiring properties for holiday, my absolute favorite. I am sorry to say though, that whoever is managing the property on the owners behalf are letting them down. The L shaped sofa, and the mattresses in the lower ground floor bedroom are beyond their sell by date, one of the baths was not very clean (black sludge actually came out of the tap in the upstairs bathroom, went away quick enough) and there were no logs in the basket for the fire (it didn't get chilly until our 2nd to last night and only noticed then that there were no logs, it was outside of the time you could contact the housing keeping so we just went and got our own). This property is wonderful and it just needs that little bit of love and care to get it to excellent. I would of rebooked this property for next year, however, the price for the same time of year has gone up by over £600. Such a shame as no doubt myself and other people who have previously stayed here now can't afford it and with things just showing a bit of wear and tear it seems a little bit on the cheeky side but I guess after the pandemic profits are down. I have stayed at another property on the strait with awesome views and location and they are charging a similar amount but the property is exceptionally equipped with terrific beds, tv's in everyone rooms with Sky and Netflix. It feels that because of the properties location its felt that not too much attention needs to be paid to replacing things or offering more facilities because people will be swept away by the view. If you are reading this, it is a very special place to stay but don't expect 5 star facilities - this is more of a character property.

The property

Built into the cliff-side, and overhanging the water at high tide, staying in Manadwyn holiday house feels like setting sail on a ship.

Virtually all the windows look out to sea and you will be mesmerised by the ever changing views of the moving tides and wildlife throughout the day.

The hub of this open plan family space is the sitting room which is on the middle floor.Here you can sink into the sofas, light the log burner, gaze out to the famous Menai Strait and keep tabs on the boats bobbing up and down on this unique waterway. The kitchen is to the side of the sitting room and has a super little dining area and breakfast bar with a big window.Above the sitting room are two double bedrooms with king size beds, one with sliding glass doors opening out onto the terrace. Between the two double bedrooms there is a family bathroom with loo, hand basin and bath with shower over.

On the bottom floor are two further bedrooms.

One a twin with bunk beds suitable for children 12 years and under.

It is painted in bright colours, furnished with bean bags and a TV.

PLEASE NOTE: The bunk beds are not normally made up and need to be requested when booking.

The final room has a standard double bed.

The bed is placed so you can turn your head on your pillow and look out to the water. The lower floor has a compact shower room (restricted height) with a micro bath with a shower over, loo and corner wash basin. Outside the sitting room and master bedroom is a balcony with bench seating.

A staircase leads up to a roof terrace with table and chairs and spectacular views of the Menai Strait. There is parking for one car at the property.

Additional parking can be found further along the lane that leads under the Menai Suspension Bridge. There is no place I would rather be than sitting on the balcony or roof terrace with my coffee, watching the oyster-catchers dip in and out of the glistening flecks of the sea against the backdrop of the spectacular Britannia Bridge. You could even arrange for our friends at Rib Ride Boat Trips to pick you up and run you and your guests down to the Gazelle or Dylan's Restaurant in Menai Bridge, before heading off to Puffin Island to watch the seals. Manadwyn's unrivalled character and feeling will ensure you have a truly memorable holiday here.

It is an ideal base for a holiday and is great for exploring this beautiful island. It has a strong history which can be discovered in the Menai Bridge Heritage Museum, the well known Saint Tysilio lived on Church Island, just off of Anglesey in the 7th century, hence the name of the 15th century St. Tysilio's Church. Menai Bridge itself offers a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. In terms of entertainment, this is an ideal spot with something for everybody, there is the butterfly palace 'Pili Palas' which is incredibly popular with families, as well as the astounding Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens well worth a walk around. The Snowdonia National Park is within driving distance for you outdoor enthusiasts, it has wonderful walking, cycling and opportunities to see some beautiful sights.
