All the other so called log cabins seemed to be more like static caravans with wood cladding. Llys Hafod is the real thing and truly is like something out of a fairy tale! It is very well equipped with everything you need and more. Wish we could have stayed longer but hopefully we will be back. We enjoyed all the goodies that Gaynor left for us, very much appreciated. The sea zoo is very close and we found it well worth a visit. There are so many things to do on Anglesey so we need to come back to do what we didn't have time for on this trip!

Arwel beach cottage was perfect for our family holiday with games, puzzles, books, Wii, etc keeping our kids thrilled throughout our stay and with a lovely fireplace to top it off, we would thoroughly recommend Arwel cottage.
