The Castaways is an 18th Century Welsh longhouse situated in private grounds on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey near to the Menai Strait. The property, formally a restaurant, 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 three bedrooms and sleeps 5, whilst Penrhyn Mawr Cottage sleeps up to 4. Both Cottages have beautiful views across the Menai Strait and the Snowdonia Mountain range down to the Llyn Peninsula. Each property has its own private garden area with table, chairs and barbecue.

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 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.
Many visitors come to Anglesey to sail, walk or fish, to explore rock pools or watch birds. It is an unspoiled island where you can relax and enjoy the peaceful farmland, pretty villages, historic towns and the panoramic views of the mountains and the sea.
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 beautiful clean beaches that are just a short drive away.
Beyond the mountains of Snowdonia lie 2 famous bridges across the Menai Strait. They lead to an island where peaceful lanes wind to lakes, forests and beautiful long, clean sandy beaches. It is easy to imagine past centuries - druids cursing the Roman invaders, archers loosing arrows at Castle battlements, or tall ships sailing up the Menai Strait from a voyage around Cape Horn. However, Anglesey does not live in the past. It is a centre of modern Welsh culture and language which offers a warm welcome to people from all over the world.
