Living Spaces

You’ll feel right at home the moment you step foot into The Writer’s Cottage, with a warm and airy entrance hall for you to kick off your boots and hang up your coats. There’s also ample floor storage for umbrellas and other outdoor items that you might need on your adventures around Anglesey.

The lounge offers a cosy atmosphere, the perfect place for a calm and relaxing evening spent with family or friends. Sink into the large corner sofa after a day of exploring, enjoy a morning coffee on the soft armchair, or watch the wildlife outside from the window seat. You’ll also find the wood burning fireplace an enticing spot if you’d prefer to just pull up a chair with a book.

If you’re looking for somewhere to play games or watch a film, head into the snug. This cosy yet sophisticated space is a great place to hang out, and it also contains a pull-out sofa bed to provide extra sleeping arrangements.

Bed & Bath

The Writer’s Cottage sleeps 8 guests, with two spacious and stylish double bedrooms and a mezzanine double bedroom containing all the amenities and little luxuries required for maximum comfort.

Each of the bedrooms has been carefully designed and decorated with earthy, rich tones and plush furnishings to ensure a relaxing night’s sleep. The master bedroom contains a wardrobe, seating area and an en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower. The second bedroom features a wardrobe, window seat and 1.5m freestanding bath.

In addition to the en-suite bath and shower facilities, the house also contains an upstairs and downstairs WC that have been designed with natural materials such as oak units and stone tiled floors to bring more of the outside inside and give the rooms a serene atmosphere.


Cooking & Dining

The kitchen is the beating heart of The Writer’s Cottage, an eclectic space for you to indulge your culinary fantasies, starting with some special recipes that we’ve carefully prepared for you using wild elderflower and blackberries that you can forage from the garden.

In the kitchen you’ll find an abundance of shelves and storage units with everything you could ever need to produce the dish of your dreams. At the far end of the kitchen, a large integrated fridge-freezer and built-in storage unit means you’ll never be short of places to keep food items fresh.

Through the kitchen sits the dining room, an atmospheric, central space for guests to come together around the 8-seater dining table and share a meal or some after dinner games.
