Foel Ferry, Tyn Y Foel, Menai Straits, a holiday cottage on the banks of the Menai Straits on Anglesey with breathtaking views of Snowdonia, in a glorious sea front location
Tyn y Foel was originally built to receive the passengers from the low water jetty which you can see on the beach. The high water jetty was part of the Tal-y-Foel ferry landing site. The ferry was one of a few that carried passengers across the straits to the mainland, landing them at Caernarfon. The ferry was used by the slate quarrymen from Bynsiencyn and surrounding villages, and also took bread and supplies from Anglesey to Caernarfon.
After Telford’s suspension bridge was opened the ferry fell into disuse and the building became a farmers’ cooperative. There are stories of flat barges mooring up alongside the road wall and coal being shovelled straight across into the courtyard. Other folk speak of tea being served from the building.
Can be booked with the two other Foel Ferry properties, ideal for a large group booking of up to 18 people.

Wonderful holiday in beautiful surroundings.
This was our first stay at Foel Ferry cottages and we had a truly memorable holiday. The cottage comfortably housed 4 adults and a teenager and had everything we needed. The setting is fantastic…I will always remember drinking my morning coffee sitting in the garden overlooking the Menai Straits…and in bright sunshine too! We had gorgeous weather and explored the area…discovering one of the best beaches we have ever visited at nearby Newborough. We would definitely stay here again. Only downside was the temperamental wifi access but once we moved the modem it was much improved..
“Spacious and well equipped property overlooking the Menai Straights. Adequate for a family of six. Handy location for all of Anglesey and Snowdonia. Very quiet location. Wifi available.”
Ideal for families with beautiful views across the Menai strait.
Very nice cottage, with plenty of space for young family to play with a nice secure garden.
