Penrhos Feilw Chapel,
Trearddur Bay, Anglesey
The Chapel sits in a perfect position on the west coast of Anglesey on beautiful Holy Island often known as Mam Cymru
(the mother of Wales). It is surrounded by some of the most stunning countryside and scenic views of sea and
mountains in North Wales. Anglesey is the place for extreme sports or gentle exploration of unspoilt coasts.
Venture off the island, and you are within easy reach of Snowdonia, Betws-Y-Coed, Abersoch, Caernarvon, Port Maddoch, Port
Meirion (famous for its pottery and Italian style village), Llandudno, Conway, Colwyn Bay and many more. The
four leisure centres on the island offer a variety of sports activities, or if golf is your sport,
Anglesey has 8 courses. There is a nine hole pitch and putt behind the
Beach Hotel complex in Trearddur Bay and for budding skiers, a dry ski slope near
Llandudno, just half an hour by car. After all that activity,
the luxurious Tre-Ysgawen Spa near this 5 star self-catering cottage, can offer a day of indulgence!
Anglesey is not all about sports, and the Chapel would make an ideal walking, cycling or nature-watching holiday. It within walking distance of Porth Dafach blue flag beach and a mile further down the road is Trearddur Bay, another blue flag beach. Close by, the breathtaking South Stack Cliffs and Lighthouse has lovely walks, and you can view over 4,000 pairs of nesting sea birds including Puffins, Guillemots and Razorbills using binoculars and telescopes at the Visitors Centre. Stretch your legs on a choice of more than 650 miles (1056 km) of footpaths, spanning everything
from rugged coastal cliffs to ancient woodlands or tread the 400 steps down to South Stack Lighthouse, or if you prefer two wheels, there are dozens of
quiet lanes and tracks making it perfect for a family cycling break. Pony trekking is also on offer just down the road and there is a surf school at Rhosneigr, which quickly becomes booked in the summer months when the beautiful long beaches here play host to windsurfing and kite surfing championships. If you prefer, charter a boat from Beaumarris to the spectacular
Skerries Lighthouse, unspoilt Puffin Island or beyond. Ferries also run to Rosslare from Holyhead so if you are staying on Anglesey you can enjoy a trip to Ireland too!
So whether your interest lies in exhertion, exploration or relaxation, Penrhos Feilw Chapel is an unforgettable holiday base for enjoying all that the Holy Island and the north west of Wales has to offer.

This sympathetic conversion of a former chapel, dating back to 1895, has been lovingly restored and furnished to a
high standard and was awarded 5 stars from the Welsh Tourist Board. It stands in an elevated position just up the road from Trearddur Bay with magnificent views of the
rocky coastline and open sea.
Entry is through a stained glass door into a long hallway with breathtaking sea views across the bay.
Off the hallway are three beautiful en-suite bedrooms, one cosy double bedded room, another large double bedded
room with additional single bed and then the master suite having a king size bed. The master suite has
wonderful sea views and you can slip away from all the family, with a good book and admire the seaview from the suite’s private living room. Each bedroom has its
own flat screen LCD wall mounted TV, two with Freeview, making the Chapel an excellent place to take older children with their own viewing habits!
A wonderful hand crafted staircase made from the chapel pews takes you up to the open plan vaulted and beamed living
area, built on the first floor to make the most of the views. This is a huge living space with seating for 7
containing plenty of light from floor height and velux windows in the apex space. There are two leather sofas and two
leather easy chairs in the living area, plus a soft fabric double sofa/bed, making sleeping arrangements flexible for a large group. The lounge also has a large flat screened TV with
built in Freeview and a separate DVD player. At the front of the chapel two large walk-in windows look out to sea. There is a lovely wooden fireplace and a gas, wood burning stove.
In the beautiful dining area with seating for 8, the original, perfectly preserved chapel organ make the Chapel a place apart. Off the dining area the cream Aga takes centre stage with a gas hob
and electric double ovens. There is a stainless steel American fridge/freezer, microwave and built in dishwasher,
washing machine and separate tumble- dryer. The kitchen is equipped to a very high standard with plenty of
plates, pots and pans, casserole dishes, wine glasses etc and cutlery.
The landscaped gardens are entered via a driveway of Welsh slate chippings through a locally made wrought iron gate with parking for several vehicles (including a boat and trailer). There is a large lawned area with patio furniture
provided to relax on balmy sunny evenings watching the sun set over the sea and mountains.
