With a love for Anglesey from the beaches, to the fresh food to the fishing trips, it has always been our go to place for taking weekend trips or little holidays.
Anglesey offers endless coastal paths, gorgeous sandy beaches and adventurous walks for you and your dogs to go, it really is picture perfect.
Within the heart of Anglesey we had the pleasure of staying at a beautiful stone cottage called Bryn Mel. Bryn Mel is located in the village of Llangoed a stones throw from Beaumaris. Upon arrival we were met with a stunning stone exterior with a lovely and well kept garden fully enclosed with a loose stone drive, great for dogs being left to run free whilst we unpacked and toured the upstairs.
The cottage had a wonderful homely feel, with you just feeling relaxed straight away. With Boltholes and Hideaways forgetting nothing to make this cottage dog friendly it was complete with dog treats, poo bags, water bowl, even 2 different sized dog cages should you need them for your furry friends.
Also provided, a very well detailed pack of dog friendly walks and places to eat close to the property for you to enjoy. The cottage we stayed in sleeps 6 and 2 dogs, every one of the 4 bedrooms was finished to the highest standard.
It is always the finishing touches that make your stay anywhere so pleasant, we were greeted with a lovely bottle of mulled wine for the evening and fresh tea for breakfast Boltholes and Hideaways do have everything perfect to make a memorable stay.
“even fresh milk in the fridge upon arrival”
Hunter & Maple settled in quickly and made themselves right at home in the living room by the fire. There really is so many fantastic things we could say about Bryn Mel and as you can see on the Boltholes and Hideaways website all their properties are of the same standard and all in fantastic locations around Anglesey.
Just a few minutes drive away from Bryn Mel you can discover Penmon Point, which has it’s own pebbled beach, picturesque lighthouse and a view of Puffin Island. After a nice walk along the beach you can end it with a visit to the dog friendly Pilot House Cafe.
We enjoyed a nice warm pot of tea, a coffee and not forgetting cake!
…In all the time we have been visiting Anglesey we have never stayed or explored Beaumaris. We were given so many walks and food friendly places for the dogs I couldn’t believe how dog friendly the area was. Boltholes and Hideaways had a great catalogue of places to visit and eat on their website – http://www.boltholesandhideaways.co.uk
We met up with Jackie, who looks after all the boltholes and hideaways in and around Beaumaris, and her husband Richard. We had a lovely few hours with them complete with a guided tour of the famous Beaumaris Castle. A spectacular castle that was sadly never finished! It’s well worth a trip round the castle, such interesting facts and if not to increase your knowledge but to look at the fanatic views and structures.
The Oyster Catcher
The Oyster Catcher is one of the many places listed in the Boltholes & Hideaways guide. We started our walk at Cable Bay along the coast heading towards Rhosneigr.
Taking in all the amazing views we finished our walk in The Oyster Catcher for a quick coffee & hot chocolate (both of excellent quality) before heading back to the car this is approx 5 mile walk.
The Pier House Cafe
In the centre of Beaumaris is another lovely little dog friendly restaurant called The Pier House Cafe we had the pleasure of visiting this place for an evening meal and breakfast, both meals were excellent.
Tredici Butchers & Deli
We came across one stall outside Tredici Butchers and had to head inside. We couldn’t resist but to purchase 2 of their game pies which I can highly recommend.
We were quite lucky with the timing of our stay as Beaumaris have a Victorian Christmas evening for just 2 days every year and this was taking place during our visit. So with us having such a strong love for Christmas, Sunday morning we took a walk around the town, stopping at all the stalls they even went to the extent of spraying fake snow from the buildings to give it the extra Christmas feel.
After all the walks and adventures we went on, coming back to the cottage and putting the log fire on is the best way to end each night.
It was honestly the perfect dog friendly place to visit and we did not want to come home.
Boltholes and Hideaways offer different types of dog friendly hideaways across the island of Anglesey in North Wales for you and your fur family to enjoy! They are also offering for your dogs to go on holiday free if you book and stay with Boltholes and Hideaways by 31 March 2019.
..and we hear a dog whisper that they have just accepted two stunning properties in Snowdonia…..watch this space www.boltholesandhideaways.co.uk
