The Old Coastguard House
Self Catering Cottage at Penmon Point nr
"Fantastic”, “Breathtaking”, “Spectacular”, “Dramatic”, “Magnificent” - and that is only the views!!!
The Old Coastguard House is situated at Penmon Point, overlooking Puffin Island and the iconic Penmon Lighthouse, with far reaching views to the Great Orme and Snowdonia. This delightful semi-detached former coastguard cottage was built in 1926 and is only a hundred yards from the rugged shoreline of the north eastern corner of Anglesey. It is located at the end of a toll road that starts at the historic Penmon Priory (a 13th century Augustinian House) with its original dovecot and holy well dedicated to St Seriol. (Entrance to the toll road is free to cottage guests.) The Anglesey Coastal Path passes the gate and the area is a haven for wildlife. Porpoises, seals and a huge variety of birds are often seen together with an abundance of wild flowers. There is a beautiful pebble beach and lots of rock pools. The lovely town of Beaumaris is only 4 miles away, with its renowned medieval castle, pier, excellent range of restaurants and interesting shops. The village of Llangoed with a pub, post office and shop is 2 miles away.
Number one Old Coastguard House has a ground floor bathroom, with toilet, bath and shower attachment and a well-equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, microwave and toaster. There is a cosy lounge with a TV and DVD player and a separate dining room with a table that seats 6 people. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms with lovely views from each window. There is a double, a twin and an adult-sized bunk-bedded room and a bathroom with a toilet and a Kudos shower cubicle. The property has central heating.

Penmon Lighthouse (Trwyn Du Lighthouse) was built in 1837 as a direct result of the Rothsay Castle disaster that occurred 6 years earlier. (On 17th August 1831, 130 passengers and crew lost their lives when travelling from Liverpool to the Menai Straits in atrocious weather conditions.) The lighthouse is 29 metres high and was automated in 1922. Its 15,000 Candela lamp has a range of 12 miles and produces a white flash every 5 seconds. There is a bell that sounds every 30 seconds.
