Welcome to Blogtober! As I have been so busy with one thing and another, I thought I would make a real effort during October to kick start gilliblogs. So I have decided to do a Blogtober, one entry per day and this is my first.
I thought I would start by telling you about the week we had recently in Anglesey. I have to start by saying that Anglesey is about 2 – 2.5 hours away from us. I would also love to tell you we have stayed in various placed and settled on our favourite as we found a fairly epic place to stay in 2010 and we have been going back ever since!
The play we stay is called Anglesey Cottages and is in Capel Coch right in the centre of the Island here:
It’s run by Hazel & John along with doggies Indie and Dash and is a converted farm that boasts 4 individual holiday cottages along with B&B in the main farm house. It’s been open since early 2010 and our first visit was in June of that year. There are a few reasons why we love it and as I just love a list, here you go:
- The welcome from Hazel every single time we go is warm and friendly, so when we inevitably return, it feels like visiting friends.
- All the cottages are dog friendly and don’t allow children
- Hazel prepares a welcome basket for your arrival, which includes Milk, Bread, Wine, Cheesecakes and Bara Brith. All delicious!
- The cottages are large, spacious and homely. In the 9 years we have been going, they honestly haven’t faded at all.
- Each cottage has its own enclosed garden – super safe for doggy to “go”
- If you do take a dog, there are extra facilities in the farm buildings for washing and cleaning as well as having access to a couple of the surrounding fields for local walks.
- It’s right in the centre of Anglesey, so everything is less than 30 minutes away.
- Llangefni is the local town and only about 10-15 minutes and had a large Asda, Home Bargains, Aldi and Lidl.
This is not an ad, but we honestly love it!
I honestly have lots more to tell you about Anglesey, but I think I will do another post about good beaches and other places to visit in another Blogtober post.
