Y Beudy is in a fabulous location between the sea and the mountains, giving great open views of Snowdonia and the Anglesey coast. This is one of a collection of three outbuildings on the owners’ farm, all of which having been lovingly converted, and are well looked after, to provide comfortable holiday accommodation. They are situated between the village and marina at Port Dinorwig (Y Felinheli) and the university town of Bangor, about 3 miles from both. A short drive of 6 miles takes you to Caernarfon for the historic castle and Welsh Highland Railway.
'For a bit of 5* dining go to the Ty'n Rhos country house hotel, watch the sunset from the restaurant whilst enjoying your meal, just a very short drive down the road (or walk for the brave)' from Jacky, our local property manager

Jacky, our property recruiter at Wales Cottage Holidays, has been out and about again exploring the area around the university city of Bangor in North Wales. Here are Jacky’s top 7 things to see and do whilst on your holiday in the area:
Day 1: The small city of Bangor itself is worth a visit, with its cathedral dating from the 11th century, Storiel art gallery and museum, leisure centre, impressive Pontio art centre and cinema and the delightful Bangor Pier where you can take a lovely stroll to the end, with views over to Anglesey, and a little tearoom serving homemade cakes.
Day 2: Greenwood Forest park, just a few miles from Bangor, is the perfect family day out. It’s set in a lovely environment, with a people powered roller coaster, solar water slide, indoor play area and much much more!
Day 3: Lon Las cycle way goes from Porth Penrhyn in Bangor, following old railway cuttings through woodland right up to the stunning Ogwen Valley.
Day 4: The National Trusts Penrhyn Castle is on the outskirts of Bangor. It is a 19th century fantasy castle set in gorgeous grounds, with landscaped gardens, a play area, café and railway museum. Another must visit attraction in the area.
Day 5: For eating out during the daytime try the amazing Blue Sky Café in Bangor for homemade locally sourced produce, great teas and coffee, local beer and Gin and regular evening gigs and entertainment. Tyn Rhos country house hotel offers a 5* evening eating experience, advance booking required.
Day 6: The bridge to bridge walk (see on myviewranger.com ) takes in the two famous bridges crossing the Menai Straits, passing through woodland and with lovely views.
Day 7: Bangor is just on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park so it’s easy to access the mountains, lakes and stunning scenery that the park has to offer.
Y Beudy is a lovely clean and comfortable cottage; one of the best we have stayed in. The kitchen in particular is well laid out and equipped, with all the utensils being reasonably new and very clean. The location is rural and peaceful, but convenient for Bangor and the wider area with only a short drive along a narrow lane. The owner was helpful when we had a query about the central heating which appeared to have been accidentally switched off. There was a useful welcome pack including milk in the fridge, cake and drinks, which we appreciated.Mr Ross Hussey - 7th June 2018
Very comfortable cottage, ideally located for the Coast Path and other attractions. I was well looked after by the owners - nothing too much trouble. Thank you.Miss Alison Bennett - 24th March 2018
Lovely cottage. Cake and wine much appreciated. This part of Wales is beautiful especially Anglesey (Beaumaris) and Castles (Caernarfon) and fantastic walks (Aber Walks). Really, really lovely place to stay.Mr John Tognarelli - 2nd October 2017
