Pretty one bedroom holiday cottage near Amlwch on Anglesey is the perfect bolthole – the ideal romantic getaway for two on this beautiful island.
If you’re planning a romantic break, you’ll need a suitably cosy cottage to hunker down in, and this pretty one-bedroom holiday cottage near Amlwch on Anglesey will be very hard to beat. It is petite, private and peaceful – the perfect place to enjoy some quality time with your loved one.
You’ll find it on the north east coast of Anglesey, between Amlwch and Llaneilian. The accommodation is split over two floors, with an open plan sitting room and kitchen, plus bathroom on the ground floor, and a loft-style bedroom upstairs. It is light, bright and feels happy and welcoming.
The cottage has been recently restored by someone who clearly has a great eye for colour, fabrics and texture. We love the stone-flagged floor, cowhide stools and comfy leather sofa in the main living area. A woodburning stove keeps things nice and cosy.
The kitchen space is slick, glossy and modern, with everything you need to cook up a romantic brekky or dinner. There is a decent amount of storage space and all the usual appliances. The dining table is an upcycled Singer sewing machine – a real showpiece for the room.
Beyond the kitchen area, you’ll find the bathroom. Again, this is a really slick, bright, clean and modern space. A large walk-in shower packs a suitably powerful punch.
Head up the stairs to the loft-style bedroom in this pretty one bedroom holiday cottage near Amlwch on Anglesey. The bedroom fills the entire upstairs space and feels like a proper private little sanctuary. Tall guests should be warned that headspace up here is limited.
Outside, you’ll find a cute little patio area with chairs, a small table and candles. Views are of the rolling Anglesey countryside, and they come with a chirruping birdsong soundtrack. It’s a great place to enjoy your morning coffee or a relaxing evening drink.
Whether you’re looking for a Valentine’s getaway or some really special quality time with your beloved, we think you’ll love our pretty one-bedroom holiday cottage near Amlwch on Anglesey.

It’s only a short trip from the Welsh mainland over the Menai Strait to this pretty one bedroom holiday cottage near Amlwch on Anglesey, but you’ll feel a million miles away from the daily grind as soon as you make the crossing over the Menai bridge. This wonderful North Wales island is the ideal romantic getaway.
The cottage is surrounded by open countryside, just a short distance from Anglesey’s north east coast between Llaneilian and Amlwch. The coastline here is magnificent, with some lovely little beaches, rocky headlands and bays to explore. The nearby Porth Eilian is one of our favourites – on a clear day you can see as far as the Isle of Man.
The old harbour town of Amlwch is a 15-minute walk from the cottage, and it’s an interesting place to wander around, with its roots anchored firmly in maritime history.
Anglesey boasts 125 miles of stunning coastal path, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coastline here is great for wildlife watching, with regular sightings of grey seals (in the autumn) and bottlenose dolphins and harbour porpoise (usually in summer). Look out for unusual seabirds too, including choughs and puffins. We recommend that you bring binoculars.
You can’t really come to Anglesey for a romantic break without a day out at Newborough. This is one of our favourite places in the world – where pine forests roll down to enormous sandy dunes, a shallow sandy beach and the tiny – and uber romantic – Llanddwyn Island. Legend has it that in the 5th century, Llanddwyn was home to Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers. Now it is home to a beautiful Celtic cross, a lighthouse, wild ponies and the most spectacular mountain views. Seal sightings here are common. And look out for red squirrels too. You can walk to the island at low tide.
Other great beaches to explore near this pretty one bedroom holiday cottage near Amlwch on Anglesey include Red Wharf Bay (there’s a fab gastro pub called The Ship Inn on the beach here), Lligwy, Cemaes Bay, Bull Bay, Trearddur Bay and Rhoscolyn, with its rocky headland and many secret beaches.
There are plenty of towns and seaside villages worth visiting on Anglesey too. Head to Beaumaris for Georgian elegance, nice boutiques, galleries, gift shops and stunning views across the Menai Strait to the Snowdonia mountains (top tip is for afternoon tea at the reassuringly old fashioned Bulkeley Arms Hotel – make sure you sit in the drawing room at the back of the hotel to sup your tea with spectacular mountain views). Go south west to Rhosneigr if you like the sound of a surfer’s paradise, with laid back cafés, bars, a surf school and fantastic sandy beach.
There are loads of fantastic places to eat on Angelsey, from fine dining at the award-winning Bull in Beaumaris, to rustic chic at The Marram Grass near Newborough, which is run by Great British Menu chef Ellis Barrie and his brother Liam. Other fab places to look out for include Dylan’s at Menai Bridge, The White Eagle at Rhoscolyn, The Lobster Pot at Church Bay, and Ann’s Pantry for tea and cakes on the north east coast at Moelfre.
Anglesey is packed full of Welsh culture and history. If you want a very pleasant introduction, head to the small museum and gallery at Oriel Ynys Môn, Llangefni. Look out for paintings by the late Anglesey artist Kyffin Williams, who captures the character of the North Wales landscapes and people so beautifully. There’s plenty of information about the island’s history, and the opportunity to buy local arts, crafts and eat delicious food too.
