Canadian Cedar Lodge

Built using Western Red Cedar our Canadian Cedar Post & Beam Lodge was imported from Canada and is totally unique. It is not a metal caravan frame covered with wood and called a log cabin! This is the real thing.

Situated in open countryside near the centre of the Island, overlooking a large lake and forest, sleeping 6 persons with 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, great room as the Canadians call it, solid oak floors and oak furniture it offers a totally relaxed style of living.

We were previously with another holiday letting company and had 17 reviews all 5 star. Unfortunately they were taken over by an American Company and they insisted on guests booking and paying through them. Now AMERICAN OWNED Owners Direct are doing the same. We prefer to deal with potential guests direct, thereby avoiding you giving your details to faceless electronic systems and PAYING COMMISSION. As with SIMPLY OWNERS we want to deal direct with YOU. QUALITY ACCOMMODATION FOR ADULTS ONLY (25 YEARS OF AGE)

About the property


Please note we have 2 properties listed. A CANADIAN WESTERN RED CEDAR LODGE and a SEPERATE one bed WELSH COTTAGE. IMPORTANT. THE PRICES SHOWN BY Owners Direct ARE FOR 2 PERSONS OCCUPYING THE LODGE. If there are 3 or more persons in your party the price shown by Owners Direct may be incorrect. We WANT TO DEAL DIRECTLY WITH YOU.

The easiest way for you to get accurate information about prices and availability is to enquire by going to our home page on SIMPLY OWNERS web site.

The price for the 1 bed 2 person cottage is from £375 per week. About £90.00 per night if booking minimum 2 nights.


Parc Cefni is situated near the centre of the Island and 10 minutes in any direction you end up in the sea. However after a day out sightseeing or visiting the beaches you can return to your tranquil piece of country with open fields, forest and a 177 acre within 100 metres. Your stay will be enhanced by experiencing and enjoying the proximity of birds, otters and red squirrels.

Nearby there is a hairdressing and health and beauty salon and Llangefni about 1 minute away by car is possibly the takeaway capital of the world.

We provide you with direction details to various locations so that your stay on Anglesey is spent enjoying its beauty. We have a PRIVATE CINEMA at Parc Cefni which can be made available to our guests. Charges apply.

Prince William said referring to his stay on Anglesey; 'I know I speak for Catherine when I say I have never in my life known somewhere as beautiful and as welcoming as Anglesey'.

'Catherine and I look forward to returning again and again over the coming years with our family'.

We agree with Prince William, Anglesey is a beautiful place and you are welcome to stay with us and enjoy this welcoming Island.

Anglesey has 125 miles of coastline with blue flag beaches and if you want a day out in Dublin enjoying a pint of the black honey then that is 2 hours away.

Anglesey is known as the Mother of Wales and examples of its proud history are numerous. The Gulf Stream ensures the climate of Anglesey is very mild (especially Winter) with exceptional air quality

We are situated off the B5109 between Llangefni and Bodffordd about 2 minutes from the A55 Euro Route 22.

Both the Canadian Cedar Lodge and Welsh cottage are modern and decorated and furnished to a high standard with 50 inch HDTV's with sky movies, sky sports and broadband (lodge only). The cottage also has a 42 inch HDTV in the bedroom.

We provide a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, sugar and a bottle of wine. Private garden area with ample private parking.

Private laundry facility available charged at £5.00 per wash/dry.

We usually ask for a small deposit about £30.00 to secure your booking with the balance payable 14 days before your arrival. We use online banking for payments and will accept cheques. DETAILED TERMS AND CONDITIONS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.

We have a minimum 2 night stay policy with minimum 3 nights over bank holidays and at Christmas/New Year. Prices are subject to change and rates may be different during bank holidays. Our rates reflect fair usage of gas and electricity and a surcharge may be made however our lodge is 45% more energy efficient than a similar size house built of bricks and blocks and so you need less energy to maintain comfort. You will not be disappointed but we are biased.

We respond to all enquiries received between 09:00 and 21:00 within 2 hours. After 21:00 we reply before 12:00 noon the next day. ADULTS ONLY.

About Arthur Jones

I am a retired Chartered Surveyor and my wife Rhian and I after thorough investigation decided to import real Western Red Cedar Post & Beam lodges from British Columbia, Canada. Simply the best. These are not caravans covered in wood and called log cabins, chalets or park homes. As Tina Turner said, Simply the Best.

We like them so much we live in one ourselves.

Arthur Jones purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Why Arthur Jones chose Llangefni

Rhian and I purchased what is now called Parc Cefni in 2003. It extends to about 5.5 acres, situated in open countryside next to a 177 acre lake surrounded by trees. We looked for the most sustainable, environmentally friendly and unique timber homes in the world and found them in British Columbia, Canada. In the UK most holiday chalets (sometimes called log cabins) are in fact caravans covered with some type of wood. They are officially and legally classified as caravans. However we chose the real thing and the style of living they offer must be experienced.

The WELSH COTTAGE on the other hand is built of stone with 2 feet thick walls, a Welsh slate roof and a big bedroom. Naturally modernised with high levels of insulation and internal finishes.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The CEDAR LODGE is surrounded by a metre wide board walk with extensive picnic and seating area to the front overlooking a field and the lake beyond. Two stepped access points and one ramped access makes it convenient for wheelchair users.

Notes on accommodation: Centrally located in countryside next to lake, ideal for relaxing and sightseeing Anglesey and North Wales. Unfortunately Parc cefni suffers blight as a result of RAF Jet noise. Jets regularly fly low over the property and our children's nursery. Not only is this very noisey but is also very dangerous and unnecessary. Apparently they do not fly over their children's nursery at the RAF base!! Taking legal action. Our prices are therefore reduced by about 30% to take account of this. Outside: As above

A fantastic cottage in the heart of Anglesey

  • 5 of 5

Everything that you could hope for in a holiday cottage! Luxurious open plan living area with huge windows overlooking the neighbouring reservoir and countryside, a well equipped kitchen and lovely bedrooms. The board games and big TV (and Sky Movies) were also nice touches, as was the bottle of wine waiting for us!

It's central location made it extremely easy to get to and also provided a great starting point to reach the rest of the island. Arthur, the host, was really friendly and gave lots of useful information beforehand and on arrival, making us feel at ease straight away.

I would 100% recommend this property and am keen to return for another stay!

100% recommend 100% stay again

This was our 3rd stay and will not be our last. The property, the location, the owner are all as good as the reviews say they are. It is simply a fantastic place to stay, very well equipped, in a great location, it’s so relaxing and quiet. Yes there can be some aircraft noise form the local airbase but it tends to be a couple of hours now and again and it isn’t a constant noise and when we stayed in April this year we never heard them at all. It doesn’t even matter if it’s raining, the view from the main lounge area is more than enough to entertain you or you could plan your walk around the lake or you could just sit back and relax and watch sky sports or movies on the 50 inch TV. We simply cannot say enough good things about this place, but what we can definitely say is that we will be returning as we have already booked for 2017.

Great Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped accommodation with all the facilities you could wish for a self catering break. We arrived absolutely soaked to the skin and Arthur could not have been more helpful - putting the heating on so we could dry all our walking gear out. Little touches such as milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine were most appreciated. All in all a great stay.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

An excellent property in a wonderful location. We visited for the Easter weekend and whilst the weather was mixed, the Lodge and the reservoir made for a lovely relaxing weekend where batteries were well and truly recharged. The Lodge was very clean, airy and spacious with everything you could need. Arthur was a great host, welcoming us to the lodge, and also provided tips on some places to visit.

The central location on the island means you are only 15 mins away from either coast, but can return to the peace and quiet of the Cefni reservoir.

We would definitely like to return again in the future.
