About Michael Darnell

Michael & Samantha moved to Anglesey as they returned again and again for holidays. We hope to provide a high quality experience for large groups or families.

Michael Darnell purchased this house in 2011

Why Michael Darnell chose Tyn-y-Gongl

We bought Woodlands as we though it would make a great location and base for those visiting Anglesey for the first time or those who keep coming back again and again

What makes this house unique

Woodlands is a great location for Anglesey and North Wales. It also makes a great property for celebrations where the event is more of the focus than the location.

The property is unique in that all of the bedrooms are large and are ensuite, so there will be no dispute on who gets which rooms.

The games room is a great for keeping children occupied, whilst the bar room offers novelty something for the adults

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Fantastic place, great location. Couldn't ask for more!”

"Having stayed in a number of self-catering cottages over the last few years, our large group agreed this was one of the best both in terms of the property itself and the location"

"While the house is large, it still retains a cosy feel with three comfortable reception rooms - the conservatory, bar lounge and another lounge with wood-burning stove."

Fab property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property, all needs catered for. Decorated to high standard.

All en-suite rooms made room allocation to our large family party easy and fair!

Close to shops and pubs.

Responsive owners

Highly recommend.

Fantastic House, Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious house on 3 floors plus a basement ( Games room and laundry room.) There were 10 of us 7 adults and 3 children plus 2 small dogs. It never felt like we were on top of each other.

Really enjoyed late evenings in the bar area when the kids had gone to bed. ( I've got to get one of those sofa's it swallows you!)

Christmas Dinner at the biggest table I have ever sat at was a fab memory too!

This house is full of character and yet has everything for a modern lifestyle.

Even in freezing outside temperatures this house remains warm.

Loved it!

would recommend it to any large group/ Family.

Owner's Response: Update: The issue with the shower pressure and flow has now been resolved as we have installed pumps and improved other parts of the plumbing system. The worst showers are now over 100% better. Glad you found the house was a great size for large groups, the location was great and that would would recommend the house.

Lovely house, great value for money.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this holiday let, it was very clean and well maintained.

The location was ideal - easy access to the village and beaches - we could see the sea from the house!

We didn't see any other houses that had all en-suite bedrooms for the price we paid, this made it perfect for our group.

Anglesey is a beautiful location and we hope to return to Woodlands again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming to stay Adam and thanks for your feedback. Woodlands is a very large building and we are aware that there are some small areas that need some cosmetic TLC and all of these will be addressed in January 2018 when we close for renovations.

Hello Michael

Just to let you know the house was perfect, Thank you

We all had an amazing time and the house suited all the family needs - which trust me can be tricky.

There was NOT one complaint.

And you are all so helpfull. From the wonderful ladies that prepare the house for us to arrive, letting us empty the car early so we could get the shopping ready for the others arrival. To all your help putting my mind at ease, even while YOU were on holiday.

We were there for a wedding and as you were only a 10-15 minute drive to the venue it was perfect for getting there and getting everyone home after the fun packed day.

The house was fully stocked with everything you could possible need whilst on holiday. And enough room so we could all spread out around the house even on wet days. No one felt on top of each other and plenty of room in the garden for the little ones to play.

We even had other members of the family wishing that they had stayed as their accommodation was alot more expensive.

Thank you for making it all so easy for us.

Kind regards

Emma Kingdon

Car: not necessary


Woodlands is close to some of the best beaches on Anglesey, including:

Benllech Beach – A great family beach which you can walk to in less than 15 minutes.

LLigwy Beach – Our favourite local beach

Red Wharfe Bay – A picturesque bay that floods at high tide

Treath Bychan – A lovely little beach with a cafe

Llandonna Beach – A little more remote and hence a less visited beach


Cross onto Anglesey and then follow signs for A5025 to Benllech. Just before you reach the village the speed limit changes to 40 and the entrance to Woodlands is on the left just over the brow of a small hill.

The nearest airports are Manchester and Liverpool. Nearest train station is Bangor. There is a bus stop very near Woodlands.


In the immediate area there is a great selection of beaches. There is also a sections of good pubs and restaurants. Benllech makes a great base to explore the island and/or North Wales. We have lots of information at the property on these locations plus suggestions of walks and other things to do.
