Bwthyn Branwen ‘Branwen’s Cottage’ sits in the grounds of the court of Prince Llywelyn, ruler of Wales in the 13th century. Named after Branwen the Welsh goddess of sovereignty, who’s wedding to the Irish King Matholuch took place in Aberffraw, Branwen is said to have epitomised love and beauty. Despite such historical provenance, the traditional Welsh cottages are newly refurbished to an exceptional standard, boasting light, airy rooms, tastefully and thoughtfully furnished to offer everything you need from a holiday property. The open plan living space, maximises the space and provides ample room for relaxing, dining or cooking – the compact, yet complete kitchen ensures that dining at home is an easy option. The downstairs bathroom is mobility-friendly and fully wheelchair accessible...Bwthyn Branwen ‘Branwen’s Cottage’ sits in the grounds of the court of Prince Llywelyn, ruler of Wales in the 13th century.

The downstairs bathroom is mobility-friendly and fully wheelchair accessible. The flexible, ground floor bedroom can be laid out as either a twin or single, providing wheelchair space and access if required. Stairs to the first floor reveal a large double bedroom with ensuite shower room. Set within the small Llys Llewelyn heritage and accommodation complex there is ample parking, a thriving café and tea room, offering home-cooked food throughout the day, from breakfast, lunches and afternoon tea – with a button-popping selection of home-baked cakes and scones to tempt you! Bwthyn Branwen – pronounced ‘Booth-in Bran-when’- is an ideal property for couples or friends, including those with additional mobility needs. Offering the perfect base for investigating historical Aberffraw, heading to the beach or exploring the wider sights of Anglesey. Aberffraw - Welcome to the true capital of Wales! On the surface Aberffraw is a small, quiet village on the west coast of Anglesey at the mouth of the gently flowing River Ffraw renowned for its spectacular sand dunes and immense stretch of sandy beach. The village of today, however, sits on the site of a medieval ‘llys’ or princely court, born out of the Royal House of Aberffraw from which Llywelyn Fawr or Llywelyn the Great, descended. Llywelyn was the de facto ruler of all Wales, dominating Wales for 40 years. There is no denying the historical importance of the House of Aberffraw with many local places and names still bearing reference to this. Today Aberffraw is a peaceful and immensely scenic get-away-from-it-all village. Set right on the Coastal path, it is a walkers paradise with plenty of options for all abilities. Follow the path down the estuary and you will see birdlife of all kinds. Where the river meets the sea, you will enjoy endless views of the sea, mountains, Bardsey island and the Llyn Penninsula beyond. A walk in the other direction and you may see cattle grazing gently in the heathland, as you head over the impressive sand dune range to ‘Traeth Mawr’, literally ‘big’ or ‘great’ beach with its endless sands, this has been called the Sahara of Wales! The village boasts a fantastic pub ‘Y Goron’ or ‘The Crown’, which serves hearty, home-cooked food. The village shop is on hand for all the essentials and the thriving tea-rooms at Llys Llywelyn will make sure you will need to get walking, after you sample their home-cooked food and endless cakes! The Church in the Sea, or St Cwfan’s church is another must-see hidden gem. Built in the 7th century, the church now stands on the islet of Cribinau separated from the mainland by years of coastal erosion. Against the odds this beautiful little church stands proud and bravely on a rock, and is quite a sight to behold. Church services are held regularly in the summer months, with occasional weddings and Christenings, all of course romantically dictated by the tides! The cove in which the church sits, is a gentle walk of about a mile from Aberffraw village. If the village doesn’t offer you enough history, the nearby Neolithic burial chamber of Barclodiad y Gawres is a must see, not just for the history and heritage but the location, surrounding walks and views are stunning. Walkable along the coastal path, it lies about 4 miles from Aberffraw, or a short drive of 2 miles will bring you to a parking spot from where it is a 5-10 minute, fairly level walk by narrow path. Further afield the larger village of Rhosneigr is about 4 miles away by road, 7 miles if you take on the coast path – trust us, you won’t be disappointed. There is also a daily, regular bus service for those who don’t want to walk back! Whatever your plans for your Anglesey holiday, you will not fail to be charmed by the historic, proud and immensely scenic little Welsh gem that is Aberffraw.More
