Hen Ysgol is a Grade II listed former school house, built in 1816, and renovated to a superb standard by the present owners. This historic property is right in the heart of Beaumaris, just a stroll away from the shops and coast, moated castle and historic Gaol. There are breathtaking views from the town across the Menai Straits to the stunning mountains of Snowdonia, and some of the best beaches of Anglesey are just a short drive away.

Beaumaris is a very popular little town in a stunning position. There is a lot to explore here; as well as the historic attractions, there are many good independent shops, cafes and quality restaurants and pubs. If you can tear yourself away, just down the road is Penmon Priory and Dovecote with a little toll road leading to Penmon Point, right opposite Puffin Island and its picturesque lighthouse. The nearby historic Plas Cadnant Gardens are stunning. Boat trips and rib rides can be taken to explore the coastline and its wildlife. Further again in either direction along the coast are popular sandy beaches such as Red Wharf Bay and Newborough Warren. The Snowdonia National Park is around 15 miles away for stunning scenery, mountain walking, biking and other adventure activities.

7 Things to do around Beaumaris
This area is an incredibly beautiful and popular part of Anglesey, below are just 7 things close by that you could do in a weeks holiday.
1-Top of the list has to be a visit to the stunning Beaumaris Castle, built as part of Edward I's campaign to conquer the north of Wales! Great for all the family especially combined with a visit to the Victorian Gaol museum.
2 - It’s worth taking plenty of time to stroll through the town. There are lots of independent shops, art galleries, a lovely jewellery shop, a superb bakery (Central Bakery), good cafes and the famous Red Boat Ice cream parlour. For dining out try the Pier House Bistro or The Bull.
3 - Take a stroll along the sea front with its pretty pastel houses and really stunning views across the sea to the mountains of Snowdonia, a much photographed view and you will see why.
4 – Take a cruise down the Menai Straits or over to puffin island to spot the birds or seals. Or take a fishing trip. The boats leave from Beaumaris sea front.
5 – Beaumaris holds many events throughout the year. At the end of May is the Beaumaris arts festival, at the beginning of September is the popular food festival. Bonfire night is a big affair here and there is a Victorian Christmas festival at the end of November.
6 – A short scenic drive down the coast is the ancient Penmon Priory, church and Dovecote, all in a beautiful position, then stroll or drive down to Penmon Point for spectacular views to the lighthouse and over to Puffin Island.
7- Summer or winter, a visit to Beaumaris wouldn’t be complete without going to some of Anglesey’s beaches. The golden sands and popular summer resorts of Benllech, Moelfre and Lligwy are a short drive away and in the other direction, and perfect for winter walks, is Newborough with its little island and walking and biking forest trails.
The service was excellent, all went smoothly and the details and photos of the property were just as it said. We had a great holiday.Mr john brereton - 6th May 2018

What a fabulous 'bolthole', such a lovely experience for our first trip to Wales. Gorgeous decor, and all the home comforts, plus extras! We loved the chocolate! Thank you for the super helpful hints and tips for restaurants and pubs, plus the walks, not to mention ice cream! We all loved it!!Mr Brian Walton - 6th April 2018
This is a stunning cottage in the picturesque town of Beaumaris close to its castle and sea. The property is wonderfully well equipped and everything about it is just perfect. Carol & Trefor are incredibly welcoming hosts, so I really recommend you stay there if you are in Anglesey.Mr James Aschehoug - 2nd April 2018
We absolutely loved this cottage! The attention to detail and quality of furnishings, linen, beds, bathroom was amazing! We didn't make use of the garden space but it is an excellent safe space for children. Beaumaris town centre is two minutes walk but the cottage is on a quiet side street. We would highly recommend.Ruth Wilson - 12th March 2018
What a fantastic cottage! We were delighted with the Christmas decorations and all the little extras! The four of us enjoyed a very relaxing Christmas break. We also thought the information book was very well put together. Thank you.W.P. Hodgkison - 27th December 2017
We had a very comfortable week and it is obvious the owners have put a lot of thought to providing a welcoming and homely property. Their interesting information on the history of the property was a lovely addition to the other information and paperwork provided. Despite parking issues in the town, we were able to park outside the property all week.Ms Judith Hannan - 7th September 2017
