It is also within walking distance of all the shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

My second stay - speaks for itself. Hope to visit again. Cosy, comfortable, has everything you need. Hosts who are very warm and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble.
Tips: Just go ... so much to do all year round. Some things and eateries are seasonal, but Anglesey and the Snowdonia Mountain views are stunning regardless of season.Lyn from Evesham - 26th January 2017
Relaxing. A real bonus to have the log burner, wifi & tumble dryer. Beach at Benllech is superb & ideal for children.
Tips - Visit: Foel Farm, Llanberis Lake railway, Treaddur Bay
Eat: The Tavern at Red Wharf Bay, Bengal Tiger takeaway in BenllechNeil from Oxford - 30th October 2016
Excellent character cottage. Comfortable and fully equipped. Close to all amenities. Would like to visit again with more time and less family commitments.
Tips: Just relax, explore and enjoy. There's so much to do. However long you stay there won't be time to do everything you'd like - a return visit will surely be a must.Lyn from Evesham - 3rd October 2016
