About Little House
Sleeping two or three depending on your needs, the upstairs bedrooms at Little House are naturally lit and have the added charm of this cottage’s original, beamed roof. There’s a cosy double room and a smaller, single bedroom for an extra guest.
Downstairs, there’s a wood-burning stove in the corner of the very comfy living room and a kitchen with gas hobs and tabletop oven.
Outside, there’s off-road parking for one car and a private patio area to enjoy your breakfasts, evening drinks, or just soak up the Welsh sunshine and let the dog out here in Anglesey, or Mam Cymru; the Mother of Wales.

Things To Do in Red Wharf Bay
Properly known as Traeth Coch, Red Wharf Bay is a large, natural inlet on the northeast coast of Anglesey. It has long stretches of sandy beach interspersed by shingle and a harbour full of seagoing vessels used by all sorts of people. For those who like to fish, you can rely on bass, coalfish, dabs, dogfish and whiting. As it’s an open sea harbour, you don’t have to worry about paying for licences. So that’s your supper sorted.
Alternatively, you could dine at the eateries in Benllech, with its views over the Irish Sea towards Great Britain and the Isle of Man. Benllech Beach is rated as one of the best in the country for families, with a broad, flat sandy stretch perfect for dog walkers. While you’re there, don’t miss the historic site of Castell Mawr Rock, which is reliably said to be the site of an Iron Age Celtic fort. Nearby Holyhead also has frequent and reliable ferry services to Dublin, an enjoyable three hours and fifteen minutes away.
A short drive across the Menai Bridge takes you to the northwest end of mainland Wales. Here, a short drive from the bustling town and port of Bangor, you’ll find historic Caernarfon, with its independent shops, local produce and sightseeing. Anglesey itself is largely unspoilt and has some of the best coastal and country walks in Europe. Still, for the more ambitious, the renowned beauty and challenges of Snowdonia National Park await, just a short drive away from the ferry terminal at Bangor.
Little House is indeed tiny, but has a lot of personality. From the original beamed roof to the stonewalling which surrounds the area, this is a holiday home you’ll remember for the rest of your life. The mixture of tradition, unique surroundings, and leisure, relaxation, and renewal opportunities are hard to beat. There’s room for a romantic couple to reconnect and take the dog along.
You’ll be torn between staying on the island – with Traeth Benllech, Beaumaris Pier, Penmon Point and Anglesey Sea Zoo on your doorstep – and the attractions of the mainland. Straight across the bridge, you’ve got Penrhyn Castle and Garden, with its stables cafe, and the prospect of Snowdonia National Park. Among its many attractions, Snowdonia’s county of Gwynedd allows unrestricted travel from Greater Manchester, 110 miles away.
Little House is ideally placed to take advantage of fresh food and preserves from the local villages of Pentraeth and Benllech. Regular local markets and a summer fayre attract farmers from Caernarfon and further afield. As well as enjoying this superb food while you’re on holiday, you can stock up with the very best in Welsh farm produce for the rest of the year. A truly unique and memorable holiday let.
