All of our Anglesey Escapes holiday cottages have been fully booked for this May half term week, just how we like it! Perhaps unsurprising really as, in addition to our conviction that Anglesey’s charms are more and more known about, we spotted not 1 but 2 references to Anglesey in last Saturday’s papers.
The first newspaper article I saw on the BBC news was entitled: “41 Welsh beaches earn blue flag water quality awards” Anglesey’s has 6 Blue Flag beaches: Benllech, Church Bay, Llanddona, Porth Dafarch, Llanddwyn and Trearddur Bay, always good to know and definitely something to be shouted about!
The second one we spotted was literally news to us in an article entitled: “The UK’s most charming seaside cafes and restaurants” featuring Anglesey with the fabulous sounding Bradley’s Deli. The Square, Benllech, Isle of Anglesey LL74 8TD 01248 852198; bradleysdeli.wordpress.com Another thing to add to the to do list!
We do however have plenty of availability in June from short breaks in Hafod which, sleeps up to 12, a two week period at Cwm Farm, Maen Pisca and Ty Camp, both of which sleep up to 8 plus the newly available Cerrig in Rhoscolyn. Cerrig, sleeps up to 8 people and is located on a quiet lane that runs from Trearddur Bay to Rhoscolyn. The dead-end lane opposite Cerrig runs out on to Anglesey’s coastal footpath. The house has sea views, is pet friendly and is available for short breaks.
We can’t think of anything better than a jaunt to Anglesey in June. For those who aren’t tied to the school holidays, eg anyone under the age of 4 and over the age of 18 what are you waiting for?
We leave you with a few obvious pluses:
The light in the sky is astonishing at this time of year, even at night. Best directly experienced rather than read about!
The pubs won’t be fully booked when you want to feed your kids spontaneously (like they were when we tried to get a table for 7 of us tonight)
Our holiday cottage pricing is at the mid season rate in June making the rental rate seriously good value.
The flora and fauna at this time of year is outstandingly beautiful specifically the yellow gorse, the sea pinks, the cow parsley and the last of the bluebells.
My lovely friend, a visitor to Anglesey, remarked today that Anglesey looked much like Northern France, we say: “What a bonus! Anglesey is a lot more accessible!”
We are awaiting your booking for June!
