“What a fantastic place!”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Great welcome from Gillian with homemade welsh cakes and wine! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a lovely well equipped house, beautiful surroundings in a peaceful rural location. We had 3 dogs who were well catered for, with a beautiful garden and adjoining paddock for them to exercise and play in, along with a huge space for ball games for the whole family! It's central location is ideal for sightseeing as well, as it is about 20 minutes drive to each coast. Would highly recommend staying here.

“Great weekend”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Many thanks to Gillian for a great weekend on angelsey. Great accommodation with plenty of space and very cosy. Greeted with a very warm welcome from Gillian (the owner) and Isis her dog. Perfect for dogs as the adjoining field is great for exercising them. Gillian's dog Isis is very friendly with other dogs.

“Wonderful dog and family friendly house”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a super time at Bofan. There was plenty of room for us: 2 couples, 2 grannies, 2 kids and 3 dogs. Gillian was so helpful, efficient and welcoming right from the enquiry to arriving. We've stayed in other houses as a group and usually find although there is enough bedrooms there isn't that much space, particularly in the lounge. Not so at Bodfan, there was plenty of room and the sitting room is comfortable for us all to sit around in front of the lovely stove. We only had the stove lit 2 nights though as we were blessed with fantastic sunny weather. Again, Bodfan was very well equipped for both with plenty of comfortable deck chairs and loungers. Although we has good weather the evenings were a little chilly and Bodfan is very well heated and we were all cosy. The gardens are really lovely and with the field in front of the house available to us the dogs raced around it having the time of their lives. The house is in a quiet location but surrounded with trees and birds and with supper views over the Snowden. Although we originally wanted to be near the coast we found that Bodfan was the better choice as it is well placed for everywhere, so our trips to the north coast or Beaumaris were easy. Overall, it was a well equipped, comfortable and peaceful location and we definitely want to go back.

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Bodfan. The weather wasn't kind, but the house warm and welcome retreat. Gillian has been warm and welcoming from enquiry stage and throughout our stay.
The grounds are tranquil, views stunning and our family (including five dogs) have thoroughly enjoyed our break.
We feel refreshed and relaxed and will definitely be back.

“Fabulous farmhouse and lovely friendly owner & dog”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Three generations of our family have just spent a fantastic week at Bodfan. The farmhouse is perfect for a large family group, sleeping 8 comfortably. Lovely spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen and well stocked library were all greatly appreciated. The house is huge with plenty of room to have a quiet time if needed or play games together on the large tables. Gillian, the owner, lives close by and is such a lovely friendly lady, her dog Isis equally so! Isis called for our springer spaniel regularly and they had a great time romping around the garden and the huge field in front of the house - real doggy paradise! We also booked a meal for the night of our arrival with Denise(via holiday contact details) which was absolutely delicious and really appreciated - the last thing you want to do on arrival is go searching for shops or restaurants when you arrive. Lasagne, garlic bread, jacket potatoes, salad and a lovely dessert were waiting for us on arrival - just perfect! I can't recommend this farmhouse enough, it was absolutely perfect and we will certainly be back as soon as possible.
