Holiday Rentals and Lettings in Anglesey
While there are delightful holiday homes scattered all over the island, most of the holiday lettings on Anglesey are around the coast – not surprisingly as it’s one of the finest coastlines in Britain. For those who crave the cosmopolitan, head to the vibrant town of Holyhead which features some lovely holiday homes, or enjoy beautiful cottages in coastal towns such as Beaumaris and Menai Bridge, or more centrally in Llangefni.Holiday rentals to suit all tastes
There is accommodation for everyone on Anglesey. Pretty lettings, with attractive gardens and space all to yourself are easy to find on this lovely island. Modern, stylish holiday flats to suit 1 or 2 people – or maybe you’d prefer a larger apartment with a swimming pool, all just a couple of minutes’ walk from the beach. Many places to stay are pet friendly, so don’t forget to pack your dog!
Holidays in Anglesey
The area and getting around
Located in the north of Wales in the Irish sea, Anglesey is accessible by two bridges from mainland Wales – the famous and historical Menai Bridge, which opened in 1826 makes it the first modern suspension bridge in the world, or the newer Britannia Bridge. We recommend the former! You can also take a ferry for the short hop from the mainland, but don’t fall overboard as the straight between Anglesey and the mainland is known for its dangerous whirlpools!Anglesey’s myriad towns
For history and art look no further than Llangefni, often referred to as the cultural centre of Anglesey, Amlwch boasts a beautiful harbour with lovely restaurants, and Holyhead, whilst being a port town, is close to Anglesey’s most beautiful beaches in the Porth Dafarch. Beaumaris, with its gorgeous castle and mix of medieval, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture is also not to be missed.
Travellers and activities
A haven for families, the beaches on Anglesey feature fine, golden sand and crystal clear, blue waters. For the adventurous, we recommend Porth Dafarch Beach which has delightful rock pools filled with exciting discoveries, as well as soft sand and plenty of shelter. Penrhos Beach is a pretty, open bay which is dog friendly, and LLanddwyn Bay has spectacular views of the Lleyn Peninsula mountains from its stunning, sandy expanses. Away from the beach but still following the theme, the Anglesey Sea Zoo will captivate young and old. There’s no tropical fish here – it’s all about what you can find locally around the island and the waters of the UK – and you will be astonished at the varied and fascinating sea life that lives around our shores.Anglesey for history enthusiasts
Of course, no visit to Anglesey would be complete with a visit to the world-famous Beaumaris Castle. Despite never being finished, it remains one of the most important pieces of military architecture remaining from the 13th and 14th centuries, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular tourist attraction within the beautiful town of the same name.
Before the first bridge to mainland Wales was built, the only way to get cattle across from the island was to swim them over the fast-flowing and dangerous Menai Strait!
Top 5 travel tips in Anglesey
Fancy a trip to Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch? The name means ‘St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the fierce whirlpool of St Tysilio of the red cave’ and the railway station’s name plate is popular with visitors.2. Treat the kids to some bugs and butterflies
Whether your children prefer the pretty and fluttery or the creepy and crawly, there are animals galore at Pili Palas Nature World. And if you’re not so keen on the many-legged, you’ll also find the non-legged – snakes, that is – amongst the fun and fascinating creatures and animals.3. Twitchers have to Twitch and there’s plenty to see here
Not only the famous Anglesey puffins of course, but perhaps, in amongst the guillemots and razorbills you’ll be lucky enough to spot one of the rare choughs? Best place to try is the RSPB South Stack Cliffs Nature Reserve set on dramatic cliffs overlooking the sea.4. Visit the rainbow mountain
If you thought Beaumaris Castle was old, take a look at Parys Mountain. Going back 1,800 million years, Parys Mountain’s stunning multi-coloured landscape of greens, oranges and purple comes from the minerals in the rocks which led it to become what is now one of the oldest copper mines in Britain.5. Get your adrenaline flowing with a rib ride
Very much not for the faint of heart, see the beauty of Anglesey from a different perspective to most – if you can stop screaming! Anglesey boasts the fastest rib boat of its kind in the world, and at speeds of up to 80mph you are in for a thrill! Find the booking office near Beaumaris Pier in the town of Beaumaris.
