Lastly is the magnificent bedroom with a super-king-size bed and a gargantuan window seat laden with cushions to embrace the fabulous views towards the Menai Straits. What an amazing view to wake up to and start your day.
Outside is full of surprises too: the outside bath, with hot and cold running water, nestles under a sail in the paved courtyard with a table, chairs and a gas BBQ. This is accessed via the kitchen or you can walk around from the front garden, which also has a table and chairs, perfect to enjoy morning coffee. Take 50 paces from the front door round to the secret garden mostly laid to lawn with a summer house, perfect for an artist’s studio, yoga or to just relax with a good book. Embrace the mountain view from the top terrace, enjoy majestic sunsets and when returning to the cottage, help yourself to seasonal herbs and produce from the garden. If you are bringing your bikes, paddleboards or canoes, there is ample storage in the garden store. Private parking is available for two cars at the property.
