Y Stabl: Self catering accommodation in Rhoscolyn
Y Stabl ('The Stable') is a fully-furnished self-catering holiday cottage strategically nestled in deepest Rhoscolyn (Anglesey, North Wales).
The cottage is in line of sight of Rhoscolyn beach; is only 100 metres from the Anglesey Coastal Path; is staggering distance from CAMRA Good Beer Guide pub The White Eagle; and a short walk from Rhoscolyn's beaches and natural interest/ geological sites, and the Silver Bay Holiday Village.
Y Stabl can accommodate up to seven adults by two double bedrooms (one upstairs, one downstairs), one twin room (upstairs) and one single room (upstairs). The large dining kitchen (with access to patio and garden area) is fully fitted with everything you should need including electric hob & oven, fridge/freezer, washing machine, kettle, toaster and microwave. Crockery, cutlery and other kitchen equipment are also provided.
Locating the living room on the first floor of the cottage gives Y Stabl the advantage of picturesque views to sea and Snowdonia mountain range. Flat-screen LCD TV with built-in DVD player and separate FreeSat (digital TV) receiver are provided in the living room for use when the weather may not be so kind. A selection of board games can also be found in the cupboard at the top of the stairs.
The bathroom with bath, shower & WC is downstairs. We also have an additional WC upstairs.
To make your stay comfortable we provide freshly laundered bed linen and towels.
The cottage has Visit Wales 3-star grading since April 2008.
The cottage has two allocated car parking spaces- in front of, and behind, the stable/ outhouse, plus additional communal parking space. Guests of Y Stabl have exclusive use of the stone outhouse (stable) in front of the cottage to keep boats, sports equipment, bikes etc. The outhouse is only secured by a padlocked half-door, so anything stored here is at visitors' own risk.
Y Stabl has its own private patio area (with outdoor table/bench) to the rear of the cottage, and shares a large grass area and a small children's 'football pitch' with the two other cottages.
Children of all ages are very welcome, and we have portacot and highchair for young children.
Rhoscolyn is a rural area on the south side of Holy Island. The rugged coastline, with views of Snowdonia, is stunning and is set within the Anglesey Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Rhoscolyn is believed to be the home of an early Christian saint, Gwenfaen, who lived in and set up a cloister / church in the area during the 6th century. St. Gwenfaen’s well, which is reputed to have healing powers, dates back to this early Christian period and can still be visited today. The local church carries the same name, and Llanwenfaen - the old Welsh name for Rhoscolyn (not used any more) - means literally 'Church of Gwenfaen'.
Rhoscolyn is home to two Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), namely: The reed bed site (which is directly between our garden and Borthwen beach); and the coastal area itself. As well as having some special habitats for wildlife, Rhoscolyn is also famed for its geological features, especially the Rhoscolyn anticline.
The award-winning Borthwen Beach, the closest public beach to Y Stabl, is a popular spot with locals and tourists alike and it is an excellent beach for all sorts of recreation pursuits, including bathing, walking and sailing.
The White Eagle pub is also within easy walking distance, and completed major renovations in 2007 that included large inside & outside dining areas and new bars. It has an excellent and far-reaching reputation for good food and fine ales/wines.
We look forward to having you stay at Y Stabl!
