"We really enjoyed having the use of the paddock for our 4 dogs. We spent hours out there, with them."
"House - cosy but spacious, welcoming - there was a box of toys for the kids to play with, and some chocolate easter eggs left for them. Lovely fire in the sitting room. The owner was very friendly."
"Beautiful place and fantastic holiday retreat"
"Comfortable Pet Friendly House - A great location ideal for large family or friends. Gillian is a very friendly host and the welcome pack was much appreciated. House is very well equipped and very dog friendly. Hope to visit again."
"Wonderful house in a beautiful setting - We have just returned from an amazing week here. The house is set in beautiful countryside and its location allows easy access to all of Anglesey's attractions. The spacious garden and adjoining field allowed many outdoor games to be played, as well as giving our dog a large area to explore and enjoy. The house itself is roomy and light, with all the facilities you could need. We enjoyed many mornings sat in the kitchen/conservatory watching the wide variety of birds feed. The library was a lovely bonus and a great room to sit and unwind at the end of a busy day out and about. Gillian was a great host, available if needed, and very welcoming with wine, scones, and biscuits. I couldn't recommend this property enough and we will definitely be looking to return!"
"Great location for exploring Anglesey - We stayed at Bodfan for a long weekend and had a lovely stay. Gillian was really friendly and helpful and welcomed us with a bottle of wine and some delicious welsh cakes. The setting of the house was perfect, with a lovely view out of every window and great gardens which the dogs loved exploring. Would definitely stay again!"
"Superb - Fantastic house and outdoor space for the dog. Have been greeted with homemade cookies and wine. Would recommend 100%."
"Escape to the country - Lovely traditional old farmhouse with spacious gardens. Our dogs Max and Maddie loved the different areas in the garden and the paddock in front of the house. Children will love playing hide and seek amongst the many shrubs. The wild flowers gave off the most beautiful scent. The view of the Menai Straits is lovely. We were greeted with a very generous welcome pack and especially enjoyed the welsh cakes and wine. Gillian was one of the loveliest host we have met on our travels. She genuinely cares about her guests. Her local knowledge and contacts helped make our holiday fabulous. She gave us information on hairdressers, dog sitter and even loaned my Mum a piece of jewelry to attend a wedding. The weather was wonderful. and the Island has so much to offer."
"Perfect family holiday venue - Beautiful farmhouse set in the lovely green countryside. Perfect for our family holiday with our 2 dogs. Gillian ( the owner ) had thought of everything and provided us with welcome welsh cakes and wine, and even treats for the dogs! The house is within 15 minutes drive from fabulous beaches, suitable for dogs as well. We had glorious weather and after a busy morning on the beach, we relaxed in the lovely sunny garden."
"Absolutely fantastic house and an excellent place to spend New Year’s Eve! Gillian was so welcoming and all the extra treats she left were amazing. We have never stayed in such a well appointed house. We really loved that the time had been taken to put up Christmas decorations, it made our time there feel very festive! We hope to be back!"
"Idyllic country retreat for pet lovers - Ideal property in a countryside setting for those with dogs and looking for a relaxing break. Large paddock attached to the house which our dog, Skye (Golden Retriever) loved. The nearest beach situated at Rhosneigr again ideal for dogs for those enjoying watching windsurfing/kiteboarding. Other lovely beaches to visit and country walks a must."
"A wonderful, spacious house in central Anglesey. Easy to access all parts of the island and also easy access to North Wales. The house is beautiful. It has everything you could need and is clean and comfortable. Outside is an immaculate garden and a huge field - perfect for dogs. Gillian was a very welcoming host and ensured we had everything we needed. We were touched by the little 'gifts' she left out on our arrival. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the house or Gillian as a hostess!"
"Thanks for a wonderful holiday. A lovely big house in a great part of Anglesey. And Gillian is super friendly and efficient."
"We had a wonderful time at Bodfan - Gillian made us very welcome and provided some welcoming treats. A fun and relaxing weekend was had by all. We would all definitely recommend this house as an ideal base to explore Anglesey."
"Bodfan is a very spacious house which is perfect for a large family and, most especially, for dogs. There is a secure garden at the front and a nice field for the dogs and the children to play in. We selected Anglesey for the following reasons: we love Wales and have been several times on holiday but, mainly, to Snowdonia. We also love the sea but find many places have restrictions during the summer months when it comes to our canine friends. Having done some research, we saw that Anglesey had many dog-friendly beaches and thought we would give it a try and explore a new area of Wales. The choice of beaches did not disappoint and everywhere we went, we found pubs or restaurants that were dog friendly, it was great. Bodfan proved a great base from which to explore the area, and we also ventured back into Snowdonia for a couple of days of mountain fun. Gillian is a very helpful and responsive host, as she is next door to the property, we got to have some chats and were given useful hints and tips with regards to places to visit (and how to pronounce some Welsh words!). The weather wasn't sunny for the whole two weeks but, even on those rainy days, the house was a nice place to hang out and play cards or read quietly by the fire. In any case, it's Wales, we weren't expecting the tropics! The table in the kitchen area offered a view of the bird feeders and it was wonderful to sit in the morning having a coffee and watching the birds - we even got to see what may have been a Great Spotted Woodpecker a few times, that's a nice treat for me (as I never seem to get anything other than starlings, tits and sparrows at mine). Once again, thank you Gillian for making your property available for rental. We all had a great and relaxing holiday :)"
"Bodfan is an amazing place to stay, perfect as a base for exploring Anglesey. The house is really big and well equipped, with plenty of room to relax. Gillian is a great host! We really enjoyed our stay :)"
"We had a wonderful holiday at Gillian's place. The house was so roomy and each of our family was able to have their own space to relax. We were so chilled out by the end of the break. The house is decorated with beautiful original art of fine quality and, because it was over New Year, Gillian had also decorated it with a real Christmas tree and decorations! During our stay, she invited us to her own home where we were very impressed with artwork both by herself and some very prominent local artists! It was so very interesting and inspirational. She made our dogs very welcome too with the surrounding field open to exercise them if we needed. There were several local takeaway fish and chips, Chinese and Indian restaurants of good quality and we spent a day at a local zoo and soft play with the grandchildren. All of us would certainly go back and highly recommend Bodfan with Gillian as a lovely host, as a wonderful place to stay. Thank you Gillian from all of us!"
"A great host and house. everything we could want. We had a wonderful long weekend. Thank you"
"We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Gillian's house. There was plenty of space and all utensils provided. Gillian was a great host and went above and beyond what was really necessary to make our stay enjoyable. We would definitely return. Thanks Gillian!"
"Lovely house, lots of space inside and outside. Gillian was great and was always nearby if we needed anything. Just wished we could have stayed longer."
"Lovely location, quiet and peaceful. House was perfect for our large group, great space for us. Loved Anglesey and look forward to returning in near future."
"Bodfan is well equipped, and in a lovely secluded rural location. Our kids enjoyed running around the adjoining field, we enjoyed eating together in the large dining room and relaxing in front of the fire in the evening."
"We had a wonderful long weekend at Bodfan. Gillian was very understanding when some of our party ignored or misunderstood directions and turned into the wrong drive! We arrived to a warm welcome of buttered Welsh cakes. The house is very comfortable and friendly and very well equipped with ample space for our party of seven adults. Beautiful grounds with lots of space for the dog. Great time had by all so thank you Gillian!"
"A beautiful, spacious, comfortable old fashioned farm house in a stunning rural location. Very peaceful and a wonderful welcome from Gillian."
"Gillian was very welcoming to us and we were greeted with Welsh cakes and wine which was lovely. The house was big enough for all of us and had everything we needed - even toys and things for the kids. The house is set in the beautiful countryside so it is very quiet and peaceful but in a good place to explore Anglesey."
"Perfect! - We arrived to a lovely welcome, doggie treats and a bottle of wine! The house was beautifully clean and everything we could want was provided, and so much more. The house is a home from home, very peaceful, perfectly located to easily reach all the attractions. Gillian allowed our 3 dogs use the paddock which they loved. There was a very informative file on attractions, beaches, shops, etc. Gillian was contactable at all times and if we needed any information or help she was more than helpful. We would totally recommend this holiday home to anyone. Thank you Gillian for a wonderful holiday."
"Fantastic family Easter break. - This was just perfect for our family weekend Easter holiday. Gillian the owner was so welcoming and polite, The house and its location are just fantastic very comfortable, and relaxing place to be with your family. We all enjoyed our stay and will be returning during the summer."
"Perfection - Wow! What a fabulous holiday we have just had at the gorgeous Bodfan. A massive, comfortable farmhouse that is not only a home from home but a real gem of a find in a beautiful and quiet part of Anglesey. A perfect size for a large family with dogs plus the amazing bonus of a large field in front of the property which the owner kindly let the children and the dog have free run of. This is a very comfortable house, the beds are blissful and we all felt that we had never rested so well on holiday. The owner, Gillian is a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome, comfortable, and on holiday from the moment we arrived. We could not find anything about this accommodation not to like ... apart from having to leave after the most wonderful week. We will definitely return and cannot recommend this accommodation enough .... go and you will not be disappointed in any way. Thank you Gillian for a fabulous holiday, we hope to see you again soon."
"Perfect country cottage, ideal for families and pet owners - A warm friendly welcome greeted us at Bodfan, with complimentary refreshments for both us, and the dogs. The large cottage is warm, well equipped, and ideal for families and people holidaying with dogs. We stayed for my husband’s birthday weekend, so I used the services of Gillian’s friend Denise, to cook us a meal on the first night. Wow, it was amazing, even included au devours and chocolate spoons for the after dinner coffee AND homemade treats for our dogs. We were all truly spoilt. I would highly recommend her services if you’re staying at Bodfan for any length of time. The paddock at the front of the cottage is fantastic for the dogs to run around and burn some energy, and the sunrises from this aspect of the house in the morning are stunning. I would highly recommend Bodfan for a short or long stay as it has everything you need for a holiday away, fantastic views and Gillian is the most friendliest and helpful host. We will definitely be returning this year."
"Perfect home for families or friends - We stayed at Bodfan over the new year. The house suited us perfectly! Two families with 4 children aged between 8 and 15. Not to forget 2 dogs. The children loved exploring the gardens and making use of all rooms in the house. The younger boys spent many hours playing hide and seek, loving the use of two staircases and masses of room and lots of hiding places. It was spy kids heaven! the children used the wide selection of games in the game room. Bodfan has a feel of a well loved family home, which is now a great holiday rental. Perfect for those wanting a rustic country getaway, spacious yet with a cosy feel. Very child and dog friendly. The house has everything we needed for a relaxing break. The owner Gillian greeted us with generous hospitality and helped with suggestions for local sights and places to stay. Great way to start 2017."
"Perfect dog friendly country retreat...near the coast. - Located a few miles from junction 5 of the A55, this property is ideal for spending some quiet time with your family or away from them as we did. Our two Irish setters were in their element with the large paddock to run around in. The house has 5 bedrooms sleeping 8 in comfort, although with only myself, my wife and the two dogs, we did underuse it somewhat. Very well placed to use as a base for virtually any excursion during your stay and sooo quiet. We will definitely return."
"Incredible - Home from a wonderful week in Bodfan. Our three large dogs loved all the indoor and outdoor space that this house provided. At first I was hesitant to book this house as it wasn't as modern as we are used to, however the photos don't give it justice and there is absolutely everything you need and more here. I wish we had booked for longer as we didn't want to leave the beautiful house, beaches, mountains and countryside. Thank you for everything Gillian. Ps, your dog is gorgeous!"
"Perfect dog friendly holiday cottage - We loved our stay at the cottage! Gillian the owner was so helpful and friendly, the cottage has everything you may need it is very well equipped and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. Our dogs loved the paddock, it's perfect for them to burn off some energy. We will definitely return to the cottage! Thank you Gillian."
"Lovely stay, exceeded expectations! - Gillian is a wonderful host, welcoming us with Welsh cakes and a bottle of wine, plus some nibbles for our dog! We all loved staying at Bodfan - it's quiet, secluded and in the middle of beautiful countryside. Not only was there plenty of space to walk the dog, the gardens provided a very restful backdrop to our short break away. The house itself provided more space than we could have asked for. I loved the library, and breakfasts in the conservatory were a treat when the sun came out. Can't fault the location - very easy to get to the A55 to travel about Anglesey or head to the mainland for further exploration, would be very happy to make a return visit!"
"Would advise anyone with or without dogs to visit wonderful cottage - A wonderful location with everything needed for human and dog visitors. We have 4 dogs with us and we all had a wonderful break in the house of a lovely lady who was always on hand to help pick out good places to go.
Not a bad word to say on our stay to be honest - we will be going back."
"Great House, Great Location, Great Host - Stayed at Bodfan with a group of friends and absolutely loved it. Gillian makes sure her guests feel welcome with lots of goodies and a personal welcome from both her and Isis the dog. The house itself is wonderful - large rooms stuffed with lovely artwork. Full central heating as well as a log burner to keep warm during cold days and nights. Even details are well considered such as the provision of plenty of cutlery. Fantastic views of Snowdonia from the front rooms. The gardens are huge and surround the property, including a large fully enclosed field for children and pets to safely run around in. The long tree lined drive full of blossoming daffodils was fabulous. Finally, Bodfan is in a great location - secluded yet only a few mins from the main A55 road and never more than 30 minutes from any place on Anglesey. We thoroughly recommend this property (in fact if we could have afforded it for our personal holiday this summer we would booked it again immediately!)"
"Easter Holiday - Beautiful location, Large grounds / paddock for the kids and dogs. House more than adequate for the eight of us and our three dogs. Welcoming host/dog! Excellent directions and welcome bottle of wine and goodies when we arrived. Had to use the heating more than we would have liked due to the Welsh weather - no surprise there. Would happily return."
"Fantastic cottage, great location and very friendly owner - Stayed with a group of friends and children for 3 nights. We were welcomed with a lovely card and homemade welsh cakes. The owner and her friend were very friendly and helpful. The cottage was lovely, well kept, and overlooked great views of open countryside and fields. Plenty of open space for the kids to play outdoor games. Overall had an excellent stay and would definitely recommend to others."
"What a fantastic place! - 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! Its 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 - Many thanks to Gillian for a great weekend on Anglesey. 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 - 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 had 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 well equipped, comfortable and peaceful location and we definitely want to go back."
"A wonderful place in the heart of Anglesey - 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 - 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."
"Wonderful place for an extended family break - We have just returned from a great week's break at Bodfan. What a wonderful place for all ages. The farmhouse is so spacious and well equipped. All the bedrooms were of a decent size and comfortable. There was ample comfortable seating for everyone. The owner is very welcoming and always at hand though not interfering in any way. The grandchildren loved the garden with plenty of space for playing. The location is ideal as is so central and makes it easy to reach any part of the island."
"A perfect stay - From the moment we arrived at Bodfan I knew we were in for a treat. From the lovely gardens to the homely cottage it all set our holiday off on the right foot. Gillian is the perfect host who looked after us well. The cottage is well stocked with essentials and brilliant for extended family holidays. There were 7 of us and it didn't feel like we were getting in the way of each other. My children loved the horses the geese and isis the dog. I cannot recommend this place enough. Thank you Gillian. Hopefully will get to come back one day."
"Great house, well stocked & very accommodating hosts, a must visit. - The house is in a very central location. It has a lot of beds, a spacious house. we found the house clean and tidy with everything we needed. The hosts helped us with whatever we needed."
"Excellent Stay, Fantastic Farmhouse, Lovely Owner - We stayed at Bodfan because of it's great reviews and were not disappointed. It is a large comfortable farmhouse with a great garden and paddock for energetic dogs. The welcome pack provided by the owner Gilliain most appreciated. The beds are comfortable and made for a relaxing sleep in peaceful surroundings. The farmhouse is only 10 minutes drive from great beaches will allow dogs. We would like to thank Gillian and Isis her very friendly whippit for their great hospitality. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and already planning our next visit."
"Outstanding - We had a wonderful holiday at Bodfan. The property was large but cosy and had everything you could possibly need. All the bedrooms were a good size, beds were comfortable and the bathrooms spacious. Gillian was lovely -available but not intrusive. Our dog enjoyed the garden and the large paddock was ideal for him. We were lucky with the weather and so some mornings we just sat in the garden admiring the views across to Snowdonia. The location was ideal for us as it very central and we could get to anywhere on the island within 20-30 mins. The beaches were amazing and very quiet. We also enjoyed Beaumaris. The younger ones in our party would also recommend Rib Rides at Menai Bridge - amazing was how they described it! Thank you Gillian for the welcome pack -it was much appreciated. We hope to see you and Isis again very soon"
"Very comfortable property - A return visit to Bodfan. Once again this comfortable and spacious property, in peaceful surroundings, made for a wonderful long weekend shared by friends and enhanced, even further, by superb weather. Certain property refurbishments have been carried out to a high standard and, as ever, there was a warm welcome from owner Gillian. We shall be back!"
"Ideal property for a large family and dogs - Had a great long weekend at this property in Trefor. Very friendly owner and dog! Lots of advice on places to visit. Fantastic views, well appointed house with everything we needed. Would visit again."
"Brilliant holiday home for adults and children alike! - Bodfan is in a quiet, rural, central location on Anglesey. We really enjoyed the garden and paddock. The house was well provisioned and had a comfortable homely feel. 3 generations of our family stayed for a week and had a wonderfully relaxed holiday."
"Wonderful - My 2 sons and partner plus our 4 lurchers brought me for my 70th birthday, we had a wonderful time. The farmhouse was lovely, with plenty of space, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and bathroom up and downstairs was very useful. The outside was the best part for us as our dogs could run wild in the field, which was very secure. lovely location and gardens and friendly owner and dog Isus. The location was very peaceful and close to all parts of Anglesey. we all can't wait to come back next year."
"The best dog friendly accommodation we've come across - Booked Bodfan for a long weekend away with family and four bouncy dogs. The farmhouse was brilliant, met all our needs and more. The dogs had room to race around in the secure field next to the farmhouse. The owner was lovely and approachable. We couldn't have asked for a better set up. I think this might become a regular haunt! Looking forwards to returning."
“Bodfan is a little haven of peace and tranquility! We stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights. The owners had thought of everything including leaving a very generous welcome pack for us. They were very friendly and knowledgeable.
The house itself was very comfortable and would easily accommodate 8 people. Well equipped and lovely and warm. Our 2 dogs had a fantastic time with all the land available. We felt the house was ideally situated as nowhere was more than 20 mins drive away."
"Country Bliss - We had our reservations when booking this location, simply because we were surrounded by little more than farm land for 2-4 miles. However all 6 of our group loved the location and what's more, the house is just as impressive. A detached, large farm house in the middle of welsh countryside with substantial rooms sizes, perfect for a large group. Local information was provided and a lovely welcome gift of a bottle of wine was waiting for us on arrival. We will definitely be back to Angelsey and we will definitely be renting Bodfan again."
"Relaxing and comfortable stay in a central location. A comfortable house in a quiet rural location with a good sized garden and nearby fields. The house is central so all beaches are easily reachable, although none are very close. The house is suitable for young children. The owner lives nearby and is very helpful if requested."
"A little piece of heaven! We stayed here for a week at the end of May. Our group of 5 adults, one child, two greyhounds and a dalmation had a wonderful time. Lovely house, and a kind owner who could not have been more helpful. There were tears when we had to leave. We will definitely be returning in the future."
"Comfortable and spacious. As a party of 7 we spent an enjoyable long weekend at Bodfan. The accommodation and amenities are as detailed and the property is very spacious and comfortable. It is in a tranquil location and, being central, it is very convenient to visit anywhere on Anglesey, which we did! The owners, who live next door, are very welcoming and helpful. If we visit Anglesey again we would return to Bodfan."
"Bodfan is one of those rare rental properties on Anglesey that offers great comfort AND space. We stay on Anglesey at least once a year and will no longer look for anywhere else! The house easily sleeps 8 people and there is plenty of living space to relax in and enjoy the peace of the area. During one evening of our stay, we entertained 12 people in the dining room. I should mention that a neighbour has her own catering business and produces great food – her cakes are AMAZING! Just ask Bodfan’s proprietor for details, you’ll not regret it. There are two bathrooms – one with a shower and one with a bath/shower. We stayed during a cold spell and the central heating and wood burner kept us all cozy and warm. There is so much space in the house that you can always find a quiet corner to yourself if needed. As Bodfan is fairly central - you can explore Anglesey easily. Gillian, the proprietor, is extremely friendly and helpful. We had no problems with our accommodation and can highly recommend it."
"Warm, comfortable, and even the dog is welcoming. This was our second winter visit to Bodfan and we were not disappointed. It is comfortable, spacious and cosy. If you want to exercise there are bracing walks, and if you feel lazy you can just stay in and watch the birds. Your hosts are welcoming and available if needed, but not intrusive. We were a group of 8 friends, but Bodfan would be just as nice for families with children and in summer must be idyllic."
