Have just returned from a 5 night break and have to say it really is an amazing place to stay. The converted stable is spotlessly clean and has everything that is needed for a self-catering holiday. Apart from bringing the basics we called in at Hootens to top up with a large selection of their frozen foods. Meat pies fruit tarts lasagne and a large selection of frozen veg ( no need to spend hours cooking!!). The water at Tyddyn Plwm is heated up by solar panels and also by the log burner which at this time of year is needed. It is very easy to use and unlike many other places the logs are free. The location is very close to both the beach and forest which our dog Isaac loved walking in. Tyddyn Plwm is close to many attractions but what we enjoyed the most was sitting out on the decking looking at the Snowdonia mountains over the Menai Straights. Delyth and Nigel are perfect hosts where nothing is too much trouble. Thank you both. We can't recommened Tyddyn Plwm highley enough and are looking forward to our 2 week stay later in the year.
Excellent Eco friendly accommodation, fantastic location, beautiful walk to the beach, would highly recommend this, very peaceful and views of the sand dunes.
If you are into just enjoying the location, with fabulous walks, this is a great place to be. There is a path at the end of the lane, or the road takes you 1.5 miles to the beach, through the forest. In the winter the area is quiet, but in the summer I imagine it will be much less so.
The cottage is clean and tidy, although the lounge furniture isn't as shown in the pictures, and we didn't find the substitutes particularly comfortable. You will also find that the view you see most is the field with a shed and caravan.
Whilst we had a great holiday, and the owners or their representatives responded promptly to most issues raised, it was overshadowed, rather, by the log burner. We arrived on Sunday, with an outside temperature of 1.5C to find no heating in operation. This necessitates the water system to reach 50C before the central heating can be used. We achieved that, finally, on Tuesday evening! And never again after that. Later in the week, however, when temperatures generally were higher, the cottage stayed adequately warm, but the need to constantly try to keep the water temperature up was a headache.
Be warned that although there is a 'corner shop' in the village, the nearest proper supermarket is at Menai Bridge, about 20 mins drive away (but it is Waitrose!). And don't expect any 'welcome pack' like you may have encountered at other properties, so buy your milk first!
Stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days. Views to die for, owner is fabulous very easy to book with her and very helpful. Log burner and solar panel heat the hot water. Everything you need to for a perfect getaway. couldnt have asked for anything more. Say hello to Shan the owners mum farm next door, she likes you to fuss and feed her,
we will be returning :)
Fantastic view. Beautiful property. Endless supply of firewood. A bit short of kitchen equipment and would have benefitted from a torch . But these are minor gripes against what is a fantastic holiday location and premises.. Doggy walking paradise from the door.
The rental was in a wonderful location, 5 minutes from the forest and about 10 minutes from the beach. We went with 3 border collies, so ideal if you have a dog. The rental was very warm and well insulated. The hot water is heated by solar panels and the wood burner, the cooker is gas. It is down a single track road so you have to be careful of walkers and cars coming the other way. The shop is in walking distance and so is the chip shop. There are the larger supermarkets in LLangefni. The wi fi can drop in and out due to the rural location.
We went for a different walk everyday and still had not explored all of the forest. Dogs are allowed on the beach except for the area that has the lighthouse. If you go over the dunes there are a couple of herds of semi-wild ponies and cattle grazing so dogs have to be on leads. We were very lucky with the weather, we had one day when it rained also poured the day that we left.
