Millpond Cottage is a fully restored quaint farmhouse located on a secluded part of a working farm on the outskirts of Menai Bridge. Geese and ducks swim on the adjacent pond while cattle and sheep graze the surrounding fields. A babbling river runs either side of the patio area which is securely fenced. The cottage boasts magnificent panoramic views over pastureland and the Snowdonia mountain range in the distance.

The cottage is ideally located for exploring all that this fantastic part of the world has to offer – there are blue flag beaches, mountains, castles, National Trust properties, bridleways, golf courses and plenty of indoor attractions to appeal to everybody, all within only a few miles from the front door. For the more adventurous there is every kind of water sports available. (See item 5 on the extra facilities page).

We would recommend the use of a car on your holiday to make the most of the area. Although the cottage is rurally situated, the bustling town of Menai Bridge is only 2.5 miles away with all the amenities (supermarket, post office, churches etc.) to be found there. The nearest pub is The Four Crosses which is only just over a mile as is the award winning Wales Indian Restaurant of the year 2007.

The larger town of Bangor is 6 miles away with a railway station and we are perfectly located for the A55 to take you to all major motorways only 2.5 miles from the door.

About the house

The cottage has been recently completely refurbished to the highest standard (completed in January 2009) and can now comfortably sleep 6 people or 7 people with the use of a sofa bed in the second lounge area. It is fully centrally heated and equipped to meet everybody’s needs. The décor has been kept bright to give a spacious feel to all the rooms and the living area on the ground floor is especially sociable being open plan on an L shape to include the kitchen, dining area and lounge. It is from these rooms that the best views can be appreciated over the surrounding countryside and the double patio doors can be wide open in the summer or closed with curtains pulled for a snug feel in the winter. Adjoining this room is a carpeted second lounge which is cosy and quiet.

There is a bedroom with en-suite shower and toilet on the ground floor. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms, one double and one twin, and a main bathroom off the landing where a bookcase houses an assortment of books.

There are 3 entrances to the cottage, a main door into the second lounge, the patio doors at the back of the property or the most useful access being that into the utility area which also has a separate W.C. room just inside the entrance.

The patio area is very peaceful and private and perfect for lounging in the sunshine and overlooking the splendid views.
