Top flat, the Moorings is right next to the beach (the garden wall forms part of the sea wall) with breath-taking views, this recently refurbished first floor flat is located in the idyllic village of Cemaes Bay and provides an ideal base for exploring the fishing village, North Anglesey and beyond.
The setting of this property is really quite special, offering breathtaking views of the village, the harbour and out to sea from the kitchen, lounge and bedroom, whatever time of the year.
Cemaes is a small fishing village with narrow streets, a few shops and pubs and a hotel with bars and a bistro. It is located on the north coast of the island and is a good starting point for cliff walking. There is a nature reserve at Cemlyn to the west and Church Bay further along the coast attracts many visitors.
At the eastern end of the village is a broad, flat, sandy beach which offers a great venue for sunbathing, swimming and water sports.

The surrounding area
Cemaes Bay sits in the middle of the North Anglesey Coast. To the west is Cemlyn nature reserve which has been described as ‘the jewel in the crown’ of Anglesey’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the summer, the stars of the show are terns engaged in courtship displays and feeding their young but the reserve is home to a wealth of life - birds, mammals, insects, wildflowers and marine creatures. Further along the A5025, Church Bay (Porth Swtan) has magnificent views, a curving beach and attractive cliffs, the Wavecrest Café and the oldest preserved cottage on Anglesey. To the east is Amlwch, an ancient port that became part of the ‘Copper Kingdom’ along with the nearby Parys Mountain. The Anglesey Coastal Path extends right the way around the coastal perimeter of the island and any section that you choose to walk will reward you with spectacular sea views, fascinating historical features and great memories.
'Very relaxing and enjoyable week'
