“Lovely house in a lovely location, especially if you like it quiet”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed with friends, another retired couple, in March 2017 for just 3 nights; it rained, but we're not letting that influence our review.

The house is entered at ground level with 2 of the bedrooms downstairs; one twin and a double which has an en-suite shower room (the downstairs footprint is only half the size of the upstairs, being built on a slope). The third, largest bedroom is upstairs has a double bed as well as a sofa bed and is on the same, higher level as the open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area. The lounge area has lovely sea views on two sides, so on a clear day (when the rain eased off in our case) there are views from Snowdonia on the right to the Great Orme and most of the North Wales coastline in the middle and the the more local coastline on the left. The house is very well equipped and the only real criticism we had was that there had been no attempt to warm the place up prior to our arrival. It didn't feel damp - the heating is all electric and although the upstairs soon warmed through, it took quite a while for the downstairs bedroom to get up to temperature. We were probably some of the first guests to arrive in 2017, so it maybe hadn't been warmed up since winter - a silly time to come really - as evidenced by the rain !

It is accessed by quite narrow roads and is not close to anything much except the Anglesey coastal path which almost goes through the bottom of the garden and is easily accessed from the house. We walked down it to the Penmon lighthouse one (less rainy) day and took shelter at the Pilot House cafe for coffee before walking back via Penmon Priory.

The nearest pub/restaurant is the very friendly Owain Glyndwr in Llandona which we drove to every night for dinner, being dog-friendly for our terrier and our our friend's Labrador. Short of driving back to (and/or through) Beaumaris, there wasn't a lot of choice for eating out, but we were very happy to go back to the Owain Glyndwr anyway.

We had a lovely stay at Tan Y Bryn and we may well return one day - when the weather is likely to be better !
