Lovely house in a lovely location, especially if you like it quiet
We stayed with friends, another retired couple, in March 2017 for just 3 nights; it rained, but we’re not letting that influence our review. The house is entered at ground level with 2 of the bedrooms downstairs; one twin and a double which has an en-suite shower room (the downstairs footprint is only half the size of the upstairs, being built on a slope). The third, largest bedroom is upstairs has a double bed as well as a sofa bed and is on the same, higher level as the open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area. The lounge area has lovely sea views on two sides, so on a clear day (when the rain eased off in our case) there are views from Snowdonia on the right to the Great Orme and most of the North Wales coastline in the middle and the the more local coastline on the left. The house is very well equipped and the only real criticism we had was that there had been no attempt to warm the place up prior to our arrival. It didn’t feel damp – the heating is all electric and although the upstairs soon warmed through, it took quite a while for the downstairs bedroom to get up to temperature. We were probably some of the first guests to arrive in 2017, so it maybe hadn’t been warmed up since winter – a silly time to come really – as evidenced by the rain ! It is accessed by quite narrow roads and is not close to anything much except the Anglesey coastal path which almost goes through the bottom of the garden and is easily accessed from the house. We walked down it to the Penmon lighthouse one (less rainy) day and took shelter at the Pilot House cafe for coffee before walking back via Penmon Priory. The nearest pub/restaurant is the very friendly Owain Glyndwr in Llandona which we drove to every night for dinner, being dog-friendly for our terrier and our our friend’s Labrador. Short of driving back to (and/or through) Beaumaris, there wasn’t a lot of choice for eating out, but we were very happy to go back to the Owain Glyndwr anyway. We had a lovely stay at Tan Y Bryn and we may well return one day – when the weather is likely to be better !
Amazing stay at this beautiful cottage, great location with beautiful views. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely cottage, excellent location, fabulous views.
Tan Y Bryn is a really lovely cottage. Very comfortable and well equipped. The views are fabulous from every window and the upside down aspect works really well. The garden is great for children and dogs – lots of really nice walks-we particularly enjoyed the walk to Penmon lighthouse-then back to the cottage for an evening by the log burner. We would definitely recommend!
Holiday with husband 2 kids and mum and dog . House in lovely location just 5min drive out of the centre of Beaumaris with beautiful views of the sea . Kids loved the upside down arrangement of bedrooms . Despite it allowing pets there was no doggy smells . Very clean. Good value . Beaumaris always lovely and penmon beach a lovely new find
a short stay very last minute
The cottage was clean spacious with plenty of room i would of liked the garden to be fenced, only because i was unable to let the dog out, off his lead being a scent hound.We had a lovely short break in the end, got used to the small lanes and hills and would stay again thanks sue joy and chester

“Lovely cottage in a fantastic position “
“This is a great cottage located near to the coastal path with sea views. It is very well presented and fitted out to a high standard, there is a log burner in the sitting room, two bathrooms, large gardens with morning and afternoon patio areas and plenty of parking – perfect really!”
Very child friendly
“Very child friendly house with 2 daughters age 3 and 6 months. We couldnt find a better place to spend proper family time together. Dog loved it too. Amazing views we´ll be back. Thanks”
Lovely house in a great setting
“The house is little out of the way, which suited us as we were a family of two adults with a child and two pensioners. The directions provided got us there no problem and the location allowed for privacy and great views.
The house comprised of a living/dining/kitchen area at entry level with an large double bedroom on the same level, this meant my parents were able to avoid going up and down stairs. Downstairs were two more medium sized rooms, one double ensuite and one twin and there was access to the patio and garden from downstairs. We had to move some beds to allow for our travel cot to be erected, but this was no great hassle.
The kitchen was sufficently equiped and there were games and books provided for entertainment. There was a wood burning stove in the living area and we had to source wood from a local post office, using the stove was not essential as there was plenty heating should it be needed but it was a nice touch.”
