The detail

In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Welsh Coast, Red-Welly is a collection of three former agricultural buildings, available to as a package, on a self-catering basis. Lovingly renovated in 2009, Red-Welly offers ten acres of stunning greenery, the dream spot for anyone looking to spend a restorative time in a gorgeous space.

The Cottage is the former farmhouse, now an airy and stylish two bedroom property accommodating up to six guests between two bedrooms, one a versatile super king size/twin single set up, and the other either a king size and two twin singles or four single beds. Like all of the properties, it benefits from underfloor heating and is powered with completely carbon neutral ground source heat pump energy.

The Barn is a former pigsty, now sleeping two adults and two children in a bedroom with a single king size bed and two fold-down singles. It is tastefully decorated in a contemporary style, arranged around a central four person dining table. There is also a TV and DVD player situated here with a collection of DVDs. The sofas, which seat six also face the large glazed wall which provides an uninterrupted view across the field to the sea, the glazed floor-to-ceiling door slides open making guests feel as though they are outside.

The Dairy started life as a milking shed, and now sleeps four guests in two private bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and one with a queen-size. It is a modern space, benefitting from a single family bathroom, like the other two cottages, a very large kitchen with a huge table seating 14. There are two ovens and hobs, three fridges and everything 14 guests would need to eat together. The end wall is made up of floor-to-ceiling bi-folding doors which open out completely onto a small terrace and allow uninterrupted views across the field to the sea. In the summer months the sun sets directly in-front of the kitchen windows.

While each of the cottages is a delight, the real appeal of the Red-Welly compound is the sprawling wilderness of the estate itself. The site of an ongoing ‘re-wilding’ project from 2009, Red-Welly is a haven of flora, fauna, and untrammelled nature left to find its own balance. As well as ponds, lakes, shrubs and meadows, this ten acre patch of paradise enjoys its very own private beach. An original shepherd’s hut-cum-workman's wagon, replete with original bunks, table, bench, storage cupboards and tiny wood burner, is the perfect spot to steal a few hours of quiet reading or reflecting time. The Mill has an outdoor kitchen this is just across from The Dairy and also has a large table and benches under festoon lighting, with a wood fired pizza oven and a fire pit bbq offering an ideal spot to enjoy some al fresco grilling with the entire group.

Red-Welly is a paradise for outdoors enthusiasts, but the amenities of Clynnog Fawr are just a ten minute stroll away. Alternatively, head to Ty Coch for easy access to Snowdonia National Park or Anglesey. For everything from sailing to Iron Age forts, coasteering to brilliant pubs, this is a great place to explore on a mini-break or extended stay. Sospan & the Old Butchers is a local Michelin starred restaurant- so be sure to book well in advance for a real treat. Alternatively Marram Grass in Newborough has brilliant food, served in a garden shed! If you make the trip to Beaumaris, The Bulls Head Inn serves great food and local bitter.

This house is spectacular. The sea views each morning will be missed. The house has everything you need no matter what the weather. Lots of garden games when the sun is shining or board games in front of the fire on a rainy evening. We will most certainly be returning. This house has was perfect for us a group as we all had our own cottage and could do our own thing but the two larger cottages had more than enough space for us to all eat and socialise together. The owners were fabulous at keeping in contact and very helpful with things to do during our stay.
