Arlanfor, which sleeps four, is the smallest of the three Foel Ferry Cottages. It is thought that at one time these cottages may have been connected with the jetty in the Strait from which a ferry service went to and from Caernarfon. The cottages have recently been refurbished and updated for use as holiday cottages.
Arlanfor is a single-storey property with an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area.

There is a table with chairs for four, adjacent to the kitchen, within the lounge.
There are two very comfortable two-seater sofas, a modern wall-mounted 32in LCD TV with Freeview. A large bookcase holds lots of books to read and board games. The view from the lounge window is directly across the Menai Strait with Mount Snowdon (Eryri) immediately opposite.
This spacious double bedroom has plenty of storage in the form of a large chest of drawers and a wardrobe. There are bedside tables and lamps. The windows provide a good view out to the Menai Strait and the mountains beyond.
Two single beds, two bedside cabinets and a large wardrobe. The window looks out on to the Foel Ferry courtyard.
There is an attractively tiled bathroom with a full size bath with an electric shower over the bath complete with glass screen, washbasin and toilet.
The lounge has a 32 inch LCD TV with built in Freeview, books & games on the bookshelf and wireless internet.
Arlanfor shares a garden with the two other Foel Ferry Cottages. On a paved area next to Arlanfor are garden chairs and a table with fabulous views overlooking the Straits. A perfect spot for an early morning coffee watching the sunrise over Mount Snowdon or watching boats sail up and down the Menai straits and soaking up the glorious views! Great spot for avid bird watchers too, with plenty of activity on the waterfront.

Characterful cottage, wonderfully quiet, with great views and outside ‘chill space’.
Coastal holiday’s management incredibly helpful… went above and beyond!
Will definitely recommend.
Bungalow at Foel Ferry
This was our second stay at the bungalow, and as good as the first time. The setting is lovely, with a stunning view across the Menai Straits. The property is clean and tidy. Tesco even deliver so no rushing off to the supermarket as soon as you get there.
Beautiful, idyllic, xx
We were blown away by the cottage, the location, everything. It is the first holiday were we truly relaxed. We are booking for next year as our four year old son doesn’t stop asking us to go back
Very nice cottage ideally situated
We were impressed by the cottage and surrounding garden, it was right on the coast, which suited our grandson, as there was plenty to occupy him during the week.
We enjoyed a relaxing stay at this delightful cottage in July 2015. The cottage is in a wonderful position close to the sea. Splendid views of Snowdon and Caernarfon. The accommodation was perfect – comfortable and with every convenience. We intend returning to this cottage in the very near future.
recent holiday in Foel Ferry , Arlanfor.
The location of these cottages is ideal for exploring both Anglesey and North Wales.
The view from our cottage was awesome whatever the weather. The condition and cleanliness of the cottage was to an acceptable standard. Very comfortable beds!
