Point Lynas Lighthouse is a truly stunning place, the lighthouse itself sits on a rocky headland sticking out into the Irish Sea, on the North coast of Anglesey. The lighthouse consists of a lighthouse tower, which is still operational, the Head Keepers house and two Keepers cottages all contained within a high castellated wall and accessed through an impressive stone arched gateway. The lighthouse goes back to the 1700s and has a fascinating history with it's links to the Mersey Docks. The architecture of the building is reminiscent of a castle and was designed by Jesse Hartley of the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board.
You could be settling down, nice and cosy in front of the open fire, while enjoying fantastic views across the Irish Sea and maybe even see a porpoise or dolphin! This is a unique opportunity to stay in a lighthouse keepers cottage, choose from either East or West Keepers Cottages. Each of the cottages retain their original features and they are very well appointed, having all the modern comforts you would expect in a four star cottage. The cottages are deceptively large and sleep six people in each.
Point Lynas Lighthouse is situated on a rocky headland on the rugged North Anglesey coast, there is a strong tidal race off the headland which is partly why a lighthouse was needed here in the first place. The headland is a veritable haven for wildlife with porpoises and dolphins to be seen off the headland, rare seabirds abound and other creatures like stoats, weasels, adders, hares, peregrine falcons and kestrels are regularly seen. The surrounding area is full of things to do, history, wildlife, walking, eating, car racing and some of the best beaches in the UK.
