    “We had a great time at the cottage.”

    The house and grounds were beautiful and we loved waking up there and seeing the view. It's a very special place. The only negatives I could mention was that there was no cooking oil or toilet rolls (2 rolls for 13 guests) so we had to go to the shops but everything else was excellent

The property

Ynys Castell is one of the most unique and exciting holiday houses, on its own island off Anglesey.

The adventure begins the moment you drive onto the causeway! The house has magnificent panoramic views of the Menai Strait, where you might see cormorants perching on some of the rocks, seals and so much more.

With the backdrop of the mountains of Snowdonia in addition to the historic Menai Suspension Bridge, Bangor Pier and The Great Orme, it will be hard to know where to direct your gaze. "Ynys Castell (Castle Island) a unique and exciting holiday experience that starts as soon as you drive onto the causeway!" A lovely holiday house, sleeping 13, and set in mature gardens with lawned areas, vantage seating spots, meandering paths and steps down to the water's edge and its very own slipway. Ideal for families and large groups this is a comfortable house with space generously provided so that everyone can be together or find a quiet space to be alone.

Great if you're looking for a unique house to celebrate that upcoming special occasion.

You may be on an island, but when the tide is right you can walk into Menai Bridge within minutes to sample the delights of independent little shops and excellent restaurants.

About the location


Llanfairpwllgwyngyll 2 miles; Bangor 2.5 miles; Beaumaris 4.5 miles; Caernarfon 8 miles

This delightful town sits right on the edge of the Isle of Anglesey and is home to one of two bridges to mainland Wales. 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. Nearer to the town, there are some incredible places including the popular towns of Beaumaris and Caernarfon with their majestic castles and much more to do.

NOTE: It is your responsibility to ensure that you take every care to manage the risks and dangers associated with the location of the property and so protect yourself and those staying with you from loss, injury or death.
Most particularly, the house has not been designed for ease of use or safety for parties with small children or persons with any mobility restrictions. The house is an island and is cut off from the mainland for approximately 4 hours in every 12 hours. Please do not attempt to cross the causeway when there is water on it. Please exercise care and due attention when using all the property grounds as all the island is surrounded by water and dangerous terrain.
