Our destination was a cosy and very comfortable Welsh cottage dating back to the 1700's on the island of Anglesey, which is located off the north-west coast of Wales.
It was situated beside the coast path and although the sea was at least 10 minutes walk away it had sea views from all of the rooms.
Our neighbours were a huge flock of sheep and a herd of cows
and we were surprised to look out of the window on the first morning and see two guinea fowl sitting on the wall!
We took a trip a boat trip around Puffin Island and we were delighted to actually see some puffins and a seal as well as numerous shags and cormorants and on an evening walk we were so excited to come across a pod of sea porpoises swimming close to this wonderful lighthouse. We returned there again on several other evenings but they never reappeared.
Angelsey has always provided much of the food for Wales, inland it is relatively flat. Its coastline stretches for 125 miles and we only visited a fraction of the many beaches on offer. Tavi was in his element as he adores sand and sea!
We found it surprisingly quiet considering that we are already in the holiday season, as you can see we had many of these huge beaches almost to ourselves!
Hope you are keeping well, wishing you a happy week.
