Milverton Cottage is set in a fabulous location, elevated above the Menai Straits and just 5 houses away from the famous Thomas Telford Suspension Bridge which spans the Menai Straits, connecting Anglesey, (or Ynys Mon as it's known in Welsh) to the mainland.The island's entire 125 mile rural coastline has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and features many unspoilt sandy beaches.

Milverton Cottage is in a quiet and peaceful location in the small town of Menai Bridge ( Porthaethwy, in Welsh) overlooking the water, which is the natural habitat for numerous birds and other wildlife, and so if you are a bird watcher, there's nowhere better to stay than here! There are many small islands near the town, including Church Island, where you can visit the tiny, ancient church of St Tysilio, and is a beautiful walk from Milverton Cottage along the Belgian Promenade overlooking the Menai Straits. As Milverton Cottage is on the coastal footpath, there are lots of beautiful walks right on your doorstep, and for the more adventurous you can pick up a Rib Ride from the office, right next to Dylans Restaurant.and obviously Dylans Restaurant is fab and always worth a visit but always wise to make a reservation in advance because they often get booked up quickly as its extremely good and very popular!

Milverton is well positioned for all the amenities of Menai Bridge, such as a variety of shops, including Waitrose, numerous pubs and restaurants, a museum and plenty of different water sports etc. It also hosts a few popular events in the town every year. In August there is the Menai Bridge Seafood Festival and at the beginning of March, it's the Island Race which is a half marathon race which starts on Menai Bridge and the competitors run along the road right in front of Milverton Cottage. There is also a Menai Bridge Fair and Carnival held in the town too at different times of the year.

There's plenty to do for people of all ages and interests and at all times of the year. Anglesey is jam packed with masses of different things to do, such as visiting South Stack Lighthouse, the Sea Zoo, a Model Village, Motor Racing Circuit, Phili Butterfly Palas,The national Trust house of Plas Newydd, Llanfairpg, which is the shortened name for the longest place name in the country, golfing, coasteering, rock climbing, abseiling, kayaking, mountain walking, gorge scrambling, canoeing, canyoning, diving, sailing, wind surfing, etc. The nearby town of Beaumaris has a fantastic Medieval castle and an old jail, both really worth a visit as well as lots of beautiful Georgian houses and interesting shops, galleries and museums as well as a pier, a Life Boat Station and plenty of cafes and places to eat!

Milverton Cottage is also very well place, not just for exploring the whole of Anglesey, but it's also very easy from here to travel to all the attractions of North Wales, such as Snowdonia, the Electric Mountain at LLanberis, the Zip Wire at Bethesda, and the famous Italian Village of Portmerion, just to mention a few! I'm sure if you decide to book to stay at Milverton Cottage, you will absolutely love it, and maybe you might become one of our growing list of our regular guests who end up coming back to stay, year after year, because they have loved the cottage, the views and the area so much!! And Milverton is certainly a cottage where it's great to stay at anytime of the year, whatever the season or the weather! It caters for everything, as I think some of our guests' reviews point out! Please get in contact if you need any additional information of any kind and I would be happy to contact you.

Beautiful cottage located on the Menai Straits

  • 5 of 5

Really wonderful stay at the cottage, perfect for six of us to stay in and well located. We enjoyed our time in the cottage, the welcome document emailed to us ensured we knew how to get the most out the well equipped cottage and also the surrounding area. Waking up with such stunning views really ensures you have a great night sleep! As do all the activities we did (Rib Ride, countless walks and many hours in the local pubs). Highly recommend a trip to this wonderful, good value cottage.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely review and pleased to hear you all enjoyed staying at Milverton and enjoyed waking up to that wonderful view! Nothing nicer than lying in bed, drawing back the curtains and looking straight out onto the water! Pleased you found the Welcome document helpful and that you enjoyed going on a Rib Ride, right passed the cottage and also thought that the cottage was well equipped, because we’ve tried hard to think of everything guests might need when staying there! Do come back and stay again if ever you would like another holiday on Anglesey as you would be very welcome!

What a view in a magical and historic place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 3 nights with my older children ages 23, 17, and 15. There was room for everyone and allowed for privacy. The location was beautiful and the cottage very charming, clean, and well appointed.

We enjoyed our adventures despite the storm that blew through the area. The fireplace added to the ambiance while listening to the winds howl.

Thank you for an excellent experience made possible by staying in this lovely place!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your lovely review. Glad you enjoyed staying at Milverton and found the cottage charming, clean and well appointed and enjoyed that fabulous view! So sorry that Anglesey was hit by such a bad storm during your visit because normally, Anglesey has better weather than the rest of Wales! So you were unlucky, but at least you were completely watertight, warm and cosy around the fire, while looking out onto whatever the storm was doing! Do come back and stay again if ever you would like to visit Anglesey again, as there’s so much to see on this beautiful island, and you would be extremely welcome.

Beautiful cottage, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Milverton is charming, beautifully appointed and in a perfect location. I want to take the Menai Bridge home with me.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your lovely review. So pleased you thought Milverton was a beautiful and charming cottage, beautifully appointed and in a perfect location as we think exactly the same and think both the cottage and location would be hard to beat! Totally understand you wanting to take the Menai Bridge home with you as it's stunning and very majestic in daylight and at night when it's all lit up and nothing nicer than being able to look out onto it from the rooms of the cottage. Do hope you will be able to come back and stay at Milverton again in the not too distant future.

Beautiful cottage with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

A lovely immaculately presented cottage which is very well equipped with everything that a family needs for a relaxing holiday.The ever changing view of the Menai Straits is stunning and was appreciated by all of us, including our 22mnth old grand daughter who delighted in having a safe and unobstructed view through the glass verandah! Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review and so pleased that you thought Milverton was excellent, immaculately presented and well equipped because we've tried hard to make it this way! Good to hear you all had a relaxing time staying there, and enjoyed the view of the ever changing Straits, which is always stunning and very therapeutic. We hope you will be able to come back and stay again and hopefully next time for longer, as you would be very welcome. Anne and Gerald.

A gem of a cottage

  • 5 of 5

Milverton is an absolute gem, immaculately presented and superbly equipped.

It offers superb views of the Menai Straits from the verandah literally yards away from the water's edge at high tide.

There is a wealth of wildlife to observe as well as the boating and canoeing which is never obtrusive.

Milverton is in an ideal location to explore the surrounding area.

As I said, a gem.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review and glad you think Milverton is a gem of a cottage which is immaculately presented and superbly equipped because we've tried hard to make it that way! Pleased to hear you enjoyed the views from the cottage and the garden too, onto the Menai Straits, where as you say, there is always something of interest to look at! We think it's a real bird watcher's paradise because there is always such an enormous variety of interesting wildlife to see from the cottage. And as you say, the cottage is well positioned for all the amenities of Menai Bridge and the rest that Anglesey has to offer, because it's very easy from here to explore the rest of this beautiful island. Anne and Gerald.

Could not ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

I would like to reiterate the sentiments from the prior glowing reviews. The communication level was unparalleled and the house was both a wonderful place to stay and ideally situated for travels throughout Anglesey, Gwynedd, and Conwy. I would not hesitate recommending this place for anyone who plans a trip to north Wales!

It was a pleasure communicating with you and having you to stay, and if ever you come to the UK and want to visit Wales and Anglesey again, that you will chose to book Milverton because it would be our pleasure to welcome you back. Anne and Gerald.
