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

Genuinely one of the best B&B's I've stayed in! Fabulous staff will make you welcome, everything you'll need is there. Immaculately clean. Dog-friendly. Excellent cooked breakfast. The dining room can be used by residents out of the set dining times - you can even take in a late take-away. We enjoyed our stay so much, we booked another visit.

We are very lucky to be in such a fabulous location, and the views over the Irish Sea towards the Lleyn Peninsula regularly take our breath away. Blackthorn Farm campsite has always been a friendly place and we are pleased that you experienced this. We look forward to seeing you again soon! More

A quiet cozy place with views out to sea. It takes 15 minutes to walk down to the coastal path but a lovely walk the whole way. We had a decent, albeit simple meal with very friendly, good service. There are no nearby restaurants so only other option is take away. No matter, the place is great and clearly run... More
