The property, formally a Welsh long house has been tastefully restored and converted into two beautiful holiday Cottages. Both Cottages enjoy all modern conveniences whilst remaining full of character. The Castaways has two bedrooms and sleeps 4. Each property has its own private garden with table, chairs and BBQ. The Beautiful sandy beaches, Riding Centre, Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel farm, and many other fabulous attractions are just a short drive away. The essence of Penrhyn Mawr is one of peace and tranquillity; a chance to get away from the madding crowd and relax in this quiet location. Therefore, it is better suited to adults, and families with older children, who appreciate a quiet environment. Saturday to Saturday bookings.

About the neighborhood
The accommodation is situated off the A4080 about 2 miles from the village of Dwyran. It is also near to the renowned Newborough forest and beach of Llandwen. The village of Dwyran, with its 12th Century parish church, is largely residential and is sited on the South bank of the Afon, a small river that takes its name from Brigantia, Goddess of the ancient Celts. Just outside the village is the Anglesey Model Village where many of the Island's landmarks are recreated in miniature. South of Dwyran, lanes lead through woods and fields to the Menai Strait. Visit Tal y Foel Riding Centre and other attractions such as the Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel farm, Golf driving range and Henblas Country Park and glorious clean beaches just a ten minute drive away.
How to get there
Along the A55 and across the Britannia Bridge to the Isle of Anglesey. As you cross the bridge take the first slip-road (Junction 8a) and turn left towards Llanfairpwll. You will see the Marquis of Anglesey’s Column on your right. About 200 yds past the Column, just as you enter the 30 mph area, turn left onto the A4080 towards Brynsiencyn and Newborough. After passing through the village of Brynsiencyn continue on for approx. 2 miles. Ignore the left turn for the Sea Zoo and Foel Farm Park and also the first right turn for the villages of Dwyran and Llangaffo (B4419). At the second right turn for Dwyran you will see a local sign for the Isle of Anglesey Riding Centre (see opposite). Turn left at this staggered junction. Continue now for about 200m (approx. 20 seconds) and follow th...
