“The sleepy sound of a tea-time tide
Slaps at the rocks the sun has dried,
Too lazy, almost, to sink and lift
Round low peninsulas pink with thrift.
The water, enlarging shells and sand,
Grows greener emerald out from the land”

These opening lines of John Betjeman’s A Bay in Anglesey capture perfectly the unique character of this island’s bays and coves. For centuries the Isle of Anglesey has been known for its endless stretches of sandy beaches and has attracted visitors from both Britain and abroad. Adjoining one of these picturesque bays on the north-western coast of the island this fine Grade II* estate which has been in the same family since the 17th Century.

The manor is a handsome Georgian house, occupying a sheltered spot overlooking a lake. Although full of antiques and fine family portraits – as is befitting of a house of this calibre – this is first and foremost a much-loved family home, its warm and welcoming air immediately putting visitors at their ease. The real joy, though, is its impressive grounds – from the splendid walled kitchen garden to the wild marsh and woodland walks which lead down to the beach. It is all quite magical.

Anglesey & North Wales hold many pleasures for guests. For children, there are numerous castles to explore, such as the exceptional Caernarfon and Harlech Castles. There are 5 golf courses on the island, and there are riding stables just 15 minutes away. The whole family can enjoy the outstanding beauty of Snowdonia National Park. Also, within driving distance, is the Italianate fantasy town of Portmeirion, as well as the extraordinary Gothic Revival home of the ‘Ladies of Llangollen’, Plas Newydd. Finally, one of the great advantages of being in Anglesey is its proximity to Dublin, with fast ferries (90 mins) running up to 6 times each day during the summer.

Price: Ranging from £2500 to £4000+ per week, depending upon season and length of let.
