In the middle of a secluded bay, the Welsh stone cottage is right on the edge of the beach at Cable Bay (Porth Crugmor) near the larger Church Bay on the west coast of Anglesey. Situated a few paces from the beach the cottage has outstanding views out to sea.
Cable Cottage, recently refurbished, has spacious accommodation just right for two families whilst being equally cosy and comfortable for a couple or small family. The house is full of character reflecting its colourful history with its thick stonewalls and nautical features. This building was originally constructed in 1871 as a telecommunications station for the under-sea cable to Ireland and retains many nautical features including a ship’s staircase, doors and wood panelling which are believed to come from the RMS Mauretania.
You can sit in the large garden with your glass of wine and watch the boats on the horizon, body board in the surf or take a pleasant walk admiring the coastal views. You can then watch the sun come down from the convenience of your own patio.
The well-equipped spacious kitchen is illuminated by three arched windows with views of the surrounding countryside. Recent refurbishment has created a large homely kitchen area with a granite worktop and Rayburn cooker adding to the cosy, welcoming feel as well as the inclusion of modern facilities that do not compromise the properties character, including an induction hob, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher, freezer, two fridges, and washing machine. A large dining table with eight dining chairs provides spacious seating for everyone to enjoy a very sociable atmosphere.
The panelled lounge has three comfortable fabric sofas: two three-seaters and a two-seater. There is a large pine coffee table and a small pine side table which complement the natural pine flooring. A log burner is set in an attractive period fire surround. The windows offer fine views of the beach and sea. There is a 32in TV – and plenty of books and DVDs can be found on the shelves. This impressive room is a great place to relax and enjoy the sea views and magical evening sunsets.
The small reading room next to the lounge is the perfect spot in the cottage to sit down and relax. The small sitting area has a table, two chairs and a variety of books on the book shelf, perfect for a quiet moment, enjoying a glass of wine and your favourite book.
This ground floor bedroom enjoys lovely views over the garden and contains a king size double bed, a pedestal sink unit, a chest of drawers and a bed side table.
This spacious ground floor twin bedroom contains two single beds plus an extra single fold up bed if required.
The downstairs bathroom contains a bath with a shower over the bath, a washbasin and a drawer unit. There are attractive views of the surrounding countryside through the large windows which can be screened by shutters. Towels are provided. However please bring your own beach towels.
A shower room is situated between bedroom 1 and bedroom 2 on the ground floor, and contains an enclosed walk-in shower, toilet and hand basin.
There is a fully tiled wet room with shower opposite the downstairs bathroom and adjacent to the kitchen, perfect to rinse out the sandy toes after the day spent at the Cable beach.

´Strongly recommend you visit this unspoilt gem – we cannot wait to return as this is certainly a five star cottage.´
´Cable Cottage has recently been renovated by the new owners and is situated in an idyllic location close to the beach with wonderful views out of all the windows. The interior of the cottage is light and cheery and all the furnishings co-ordinate beautifully. The whole cottage is very clean and immaculately kept with very comfortable beds and bedlinen, lovely fluffy towels with two bathrooms and a wet room. It has excellent central heating and was always lovely and warm. We loved relaxing in the cosy sitting room with a log burning fire and looking out of the window at the sea.´

An excellent cottage in a superb location and sunsets to die for.
We (3x2 adults +2 Children) have just spent a fantastic week at The Cable. The cottage was beautifully furnished and the location in Church Bay perfect for a family holiday. A week of different activities without using the car other than a Tesco shopping trip. Could not set up tesco delivery cos cottage not registered under postcode. They promised to address isue may be worth following up. Week filled with canoeing, kite flying, swimming, stone balancing, sketching and walking. Excellent lunch at Lobster Pot 10th June 2014Review Source - Via email to Coastal Holidays
Beautiful cottage, stunning location
Welcoming & homely cottage, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean. We took our 2 year old daughter and the location was great for her right on the beach for her to run free & play. The sunsets were amazing, perfect for a romantic get away. We would highly recommend this cottage and we look forward to returning again. April 2014Review Source - Trip Advisor
Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay
"Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at ‘The Cable’ last weekend.The property was exactly as we had hoped, and was in an absolutely fabulous location.There were no problems at all, and the property fitted our requirements perfectly – a better location for walking, eating and landscape photography would be hard to find!"-David Brown (30 June 2011)Review Source - Property Guestbook

COMFORTABLE, CLEAN, WARM AND INVITING
This recently renovated cottage is the ideal place to stay to appreciate Anglesey and all it has to offer. It is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated with all the mod cons necessary to make a home from home. Idyllically, close to the sea, with rock pools and caves to explore, breathtaking views and wonderful places to eat only a cliff top walk away! The cottage is spacious, with a large, well equipped kitchen. The bathrooms are immaculate. All bedrooms are clean, bright and comfortable with adequate storage space and the upstairs bedroom is truly magical, with it's views looking out over the cove and across the sea. A place where adults can be children again and were children can be inspired to explore and create. I recommend it wholeheartedly! May 2013Review Source - Trip Advisor

The surrounding area
On Anglesey, there’s something for everyone, whether you’re planning a family day out with the kids or a relaxing afternoon on one of our lovely sandy beaches, we hope you like some of the suggestions below:
Church Bay [Porth Swtan] is the adjacent cove with a wonderful, golden beach. Here you will find the ´Swtan´- the oldest fully restored cottage on the island - and The National Trust heritage coastline boasts mile after mile of uninterrupted walks along the coastal path. Also at Church Bay is the locally renowned ´Lobster Pot´ restaurant and ‘Wavecrest’ coffee shop at the end of the coastal path with its speciality cream teas as well as many other home made delicacies. This area is excellent for all water sports, cycling on the local and national networks, fishing at Llyn Alaw, walking the Anglesey Coastal Path or just quiet reflection.
Cemlyn Nature Reserve is a short distance to the north and the nearby Jam Factory offers an interesting selection of luxury preserves for tasting in the Tea Shop. Cemaes Bay, a traditional seaside resort and fishing village, is further along the A5025.
The Cable is a most romantic cottage situated right on the beach at Cable Bay (Porth Crugmor). It is a perfect getaway at any time of the year with the most wonderful views out to sea.
North coast beaches
At the northern end of the A5025, Amlwch is a historic fishing village associated with the ‘Copper Kingdom’ of Parys Mountain whereas Cemaes Bay is an attractive beach resort, close to Cemlyn nature reserve and Church Bay (Porth Swtan) with its tall cliffs and the oldest fully restored cottage on Anglesey. The National Trust heritage coastline boasts mile after mile of uninterrupted walks along the coastal path. Also at Church Bay is the locally renowned ‘Lobster Pot’ restaurant and ‘Wavecrest’ coffee shop at the end of the coastal path with its speciality cream teas as well as many other homemade delicacies. This area is excellent for all water sports, cycling on the local and national networks, fishing at Llyn Alaw, walking the Anglesey Coastal Path or just quiet reflection.
West coast and beaches
The west coast of Anglesey offers a wide variety of attractions and places to visit. Holyhead on the Holy Island in the north west of Anglesey is known as Ferry port but it has much more to offer with the ruins of an ancient Roman Fort, and the historic Church of St Cybi’s in the centre of town.
The beautiful beaches of Treddur Bay, Rhoscolyn, and Porth Dafarch are great for family days out. Rhosneigr is a famous water sport resort with a mouth-watering array of cafes and bistros.
