“Family friendly farmhouse”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A tremendously good space for families and for those with dogs. Secure garden and field are a huge bonus. The house is more than adequately furnished with a good supply of equipment for small children.
The owner is delightful and enormously helpful.

There is no doubt that all members of our party would like to return particularly as this is a central base for exploring Anglesey.

Reviewed July 19, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at Bodfan because of it's great reviews and were not disappointed.
It is a large comfortable farmhouse with a great garden and paddock for energetic dogs.
The welcome pack provided by the owner Gilliain most appreciated.
The beds are comfortable and made for a relaxing sleep in peaceful surroundings.
The farmhouse is only 10 minutes drive from great beaches will allow dogs.
We would like to than Gillian and Isis her very friendly whippit for their great hospitality.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and already planning our next visit.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a wonderful holiday at Bodfan. The property was large but cosy and had everything you could possibly need. All the bedrooms were a good size, beds were comfortable and the bathrooms spacious. Gillian was lovely -available but not intrusive. Our dog enjoyed the garden and the large paddock was ideal for him. We were lucky with the weather and so some mornings we just sat in the garden admiring the views across to Snowdonia. The location was ideal for us as it very central and we could get to anywhere on the island within 20-30 mins. The beaches were amazing and very quiet. We also enjoyed Beaumaris. The younger ones in our party would also recommend Rib Rides at Menai Bridge - amazing was how they described it!

Thank you Gillian for the welcome pack -it was much appreciated. We hope to see you and Isis again very soon

A return visit to Bodfan. Once again this comfortable and spacious property, in peaceful surroundings, made for a wonderful long weekend shared by friends and enhanced, even further, by superb weather. Certain property refurbishments have been carried out to a high standard and, as ever, there was a warm welcome from owner Gillian. We shall be back!

“Brilliant holiday home for adults and children alike!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Bodfan is in a quiet, rural, central location on Anglesey. We really enjoyed the garden and paddock . The house was well provisioned and had a comfortable homely feel. 3 generations of our family stayed for a week and had a wonderful relaxed holiday.

My 2 sons and partner plus our 4 lurchers brought me for my 70th birthday, we had a wonderfull time. The farmhouse was lovely, plenty of space, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and bathroom up and downstairs was very usefull. The outside was the best part for us as our dogs could run wild in the field, which was very secure. lovely location and gardens and friendly owner and dog Isus. The location was very peacefull and close to all parts of Anglesey. we all can't wait to come back next year.
