We assume that the main reason for your stay is to visit the wonderful surrounding area and the wealth of attractions that Ynys Môn (Anglesey) and north Wales have to offer.

Fflat Cynan is named after the bardic title of a renowned twentieth century Welsh language poet, Albert Evans-Jones, who lived a stone’s throw away, and who is buried in the scenic churchyard on St. Tysilio’s island in the shadow of the Menai Suspension Bridge.

Fflat Cocos is named after a local poet from the 19th century, famed for his rhymes and the fact that he asked Queen Victoria for her hand in marriage. His most famous poem is:

Pedwar llew tew

Heb ddim blew,

Dau’r ochor yma,

A dau’r ochor drew

– with its wonderful translation:

Four fat lions,

Without any hair

Two over here,

And two over there.

Porthaethwy (the original Welsh name for the town of Menai Bridge), is fortunate enough to have a high street which is a vibrant and charming part of the town, and the apartment is located 100m from the seafront, with numerous stunning walks suitable for all ages and abilities.

The obvious place to start is with a walk from the doorstep, along the beautiful seafront and under the historic Menai Suspension Bridge, built by Thomas Telford and opened in 1826. More details about its history is available from Menai Heritage. The route then takes you around the island of Ynys Tysilio with its ancient church, and through the woodland of Coed Cyrnol, where you might be lucky enough to spot a red squirrel. Circular Walk 1
