This was a very good experience in a well furnished clean and modern B&B. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner and his staff, all you need to do is ask. A very helpful welcome letter, a comprehensive information pack and a bulging welcome pack of teas, coffees, biscuits and water on arrival. The room was very comfortable and... More

Returned today from a lovely week in Anglesey, staying on Blackthorn Farm in our touring caravan. We were lucky enough to have 8 days of sunshine after 5 weeks of rain! The toilets and shower block were spotlessly clean and although it was Easter weekend, the site was lovely and peaceful. The site was dog friendly with walks right from... More

We stayed here with our 2 children in our motorhome recently. What a beautiful location right on the coast with great facilities. We couldn't wish for a nicer host who was very accomodating with all of our needs. We had breakfast on a few occasions which was lovely. The toilet and shower facilities were excellent although because the weather was... More

Booked this little gem for one night on a Saturday. We had booked the two bedroom cottage and arrived at about 4pm. What welcomed us was a surprise, great little place with everything you would get at home, we didn't even have to worry about washing up liquid or a cloth. The cottage was spotless and so comfortable. Staff were... More

This was a very good experience in a delightfully furnished and scrupulously clean B&B. Those with whom we had contact were very welcoming and the whole tone of the visit was hospitality driven. A very helpful welcome letter, a comprehensive information pack and a real sense of 'make yourself at home' and 'nothing will be too much trouble' helped us... More

Stopped for one night in October 2014 on a whistle stop family tour of Ynys Mon. Fantastic comfortable room with great views over the coast to Snowdonia. Kate could not have been more welcoming with lots of good advice to make the best of our visit. Made to order breakfast in the dining room was as good as any other... More

Words can't describe Blackthorn Farm from the welcome from the very handsome owner Richard to the amazing views,but that's not all the bedrooms are sooo comfortable and so well appointed the shower caps are the best ( this from someone who doesn't do wet hair) and the breakfast sets one up for the day it's so lovely and the sunsets...

We are glad you enjoyed your breakfast - which is one of the most important parts of any guests' experience with us. And, of course, we all think Richard... More

Touring around the island we just happened to spot the camp site sign. What a find! We stayed midweek and so had almost the entire place to ourselves. The facilities are great, clean and very welcoming. They play music in the WC and the showers are very nice and powerful. I would think you best book in advance if you... More
