Deri Fawr offers a cosy retreat and is ideally situated for nature lovers looking to explore Anglesey and the beautiful coastline.
Surrounded by beautiful countryside, our cottages have been skilfully converted from a cluster of 18th-century farm buildings, to offer attractive and comfortable accommodation. Visitors enjoy shared use of 3 acres of gardens and grounds, complete with stunning flower beds, fruit trees and a vegetable plot. The paddock is surrounded by a big old hedgerow and is planted with native trees. At the bottom of the paddock, a stream runs through two ponds, perfect for watching the resident ducks and moorhens from the perfectly positioned summerhouse. There is little noise apart from wild birds. Rabbits and hedgehogs come and go in the grounds too making Deri Fawr a nature lovers delight!
In Autumn 2019 Helen and Rick took over Deri Fawr. We appreciate all the hard work and dedication that Paul and Mavis devoted to Deri Fawr over all the years. Our aim is to continue to offer a place of peace and quiet that our guests (and the wildlife) can relax in and enjoy.
We are keen on encouraging wildlife and working sustainably. We recycle as much as possible, use stream and rain water for many purposes and Deri Fawr has won an award in the Green Dragon conservation project. We are now burning wood which was planted from seed here twenty years ago.
We live in the house nearby and are always available to give advice, help or just a chat.
Deri Fawr, which means Big Oak, nestles in a valley created by The Afon Coch (Red River) which enters the sea at Dulas, one mile to the east.
In this beautiful location where there was once a mediaeval village called Deri, previous owners Paul and Mavis, took an 18th Century stone barn and sympathetically converted it into three cottages: The Smithy, The Stables and The Granary. They also created The Annexe, providing an extra bed if needed.
In May 2010 they converted another 18th century farm building to create The Byre, which is equipped to a very high standard and sleeps 2.
All of the garden (3 acres) is available for your enjoyment. When the Druids ruled, Anglesey had many oak groves but the Romans destroyed them. Paul planted many oaks in the 35 years they lived here. The garden has flower beds, fruit trees and a vegetable plot. The paddock is surrounded by a big old hedgerow and is planted with native trees. At the bottom of the paddock, a stream runs through two ponds. Birds and wildlife abound as we try to manage the land to encourage a balanced ecology. It is very quiet here and many guests comment on this. We have a charcoal BBQ that you are welcome to use.
There are extensive hedgerows, many trees, birds and animals. Two ponds are home to ducks, moorhens, kingfisher, fish, eels and frogs. Rabbits and hedgehogs come and go. Bats are to be seen regularly.
The Summerhouse is available all year long for you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the garden.
