“Excellent”
Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We enjoyed our weekend. Lots of space but cosy. Stylish. Warm. Well equipped with electronic devices. Good kitchen. We liked the wood fire. Remember to take lots of seasoned wood logs and kindling. Firelighters were available there but take some just in case. Take bottled water. Do walk to Bull Bay by the coastal walk for the stunning scenery. Book this cottage with confidence.

“Another fabulous weekend”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Lovely spot. So peaceful. We returned this year for a long weekend but wished we had booked the week. Weather was lovely. The children even swam in the sea on November 1st. Great place to unwind with friends and family; plenty of space, enclosed garden and warm and welcoming atmosphere.

“Great rural/coastal location!”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Really enjoyed our stay at Porthwen. Although a little difficult to find as we arrived in the dark, it's well worth the effort. The house is quirky with lots of small changes in elevation. We had 3 kids with us aged 5, 6 and 11, they enjoyed exploring the house and garden.
We used the property as a base for a weekend at Anglesey Circuit, this meant that we didn't spend as much time as we'd have liked at the property, and the commute to the circuit was quite a distance, but this didn't matter as there is very little traffic on the island and so travel time was relatively short.
All in all a great property (check out the log burners, they're epic!).

“Wonderful Break”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The cottage is wonderful and homely with so much space.
The area is incredibly quiet which is amazing when you are away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We didn't even get up until lunchtime on our first day, we must have needed the rest.
The location is great, the place fab and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.
We will be back!

The drive down the pathway is very daunting and if uou meet someone driving the opposite way one of you has to reverse back until you can let them past. The views from the farmhouse are lovely and coastal walk was beautiful. It's very peaceful & my son loved exploring the farmhouse and surrounding areas. The farmhouse it self is lovely and clean, however, could do with an extra bathroom/toilet. We all had a lovely stay.

Management Response
Sep 3, 2015
Thank you for your review, I'm sorry you found the lane daunting. This is a private lane giving access to just 3 properties so there is only coming & goings of 3-4 cars during a day, so it is a rare occurrence to meet oncoming traffic, but as of most of Anglesey lanes it is single track with passing areas.
Porthwen is advertised as 1 family bathroom, I do get large groups suggesting the addition of another, It would be nice & I have considered it but it's not as easy as that as it is a RURAL 17 century building with stone walls 2 ft thick, It would need the expandtion of the existing septic tank & my main concern is to consider the impact of its natural water source, as we are not on mains supply. all these things we take for granted.

“Porthwen Farm... a beautiful home in glorious coastal countryside.”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a great family home and location! We were blessed with two hot and sunny days so we were able to enjoy the coastal walk which begins with a track from the house. Within minutes you have stunning coastal views, dramatic and wonderful in sunset.
After a day of walking or visiting places the house is a perfect home to return too. Greatly equipped both functionally and recreationally and spacious both indoor and out in the garden.
My family and I had a lovely time and recommended it highly! A perfect place for couples and family holidays.
Thank you!

“Perfect...Location, accommodation...Idyllic”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We booked for a long weekend, wished we had booked for longer...next time. Just myself, my husband and our two French Bulldogs but this property would be perfect for families of all generations also. Located in a beautiful part of the world, a short walk to the stunning views from the coastal walks. The property provides everything you would need, no matter how long you stay and no matter the weather. We enjoyed the sunshine during our stay and made the most of all the beaches that are within a short drive away. But there is so much countryside to explore also. The thing that strikes you is how unspoiled the area is, particularly the beaches etc. a truly 'traditional' family holiday location. Perfect for taking time to relax and enjoy the laid back feel of the place.

Bev has found a piece of paradise and a big thank you to her for being kind enough to share it with us!! The house is a perfect base for a holiday set within the countryside with only a short walk to the sea.

We cant wait to return, but return we will...for now we will remember our fond memories of our stay at Porthwen Farm.....Just to sign off by saying that you will not regret visiting this fabulous location and staying at Porthwen Farm....just leave a week or two for us in 2016!!!
