The Isle of Anglesy (Ynys Mon in Welsh) is situated off the north-west coast of Wales near the very attractive Snowdonia mountain range. It is separated from the mainland by the Menai Strait, which is spanned by two scenic bridges, the Menai Bridge and the Britannia Bridge.

Anglesey is known locally as Mon Mam Cymru the Mother of Wales, a reference to the historical role of the island as the bread-basket of Wales. It is steeped in a rich archaeological and historical heritage. It is unique in its diversity of widlife habitats from the great sea cliffs, estuaries, lagoons and dunes on the coast to the lakes, wetlands, heaths and richly mosaiced farmland inshore.

Camaes Bay is the most northerly picturesque village in Wales and its growth has been shaped by the natural resources available to it. Cemaes Bay is an area of Outstanding Beauty, some of which is owned by the National Trust. The village includes a natural, sheltered harbour that looks north to the Irish Sea and is the site of ancient settlements, that in more recent centuries has become a centre for maritime activities.

Camaes Bay has a range of useful local amenities: a traditional butcher, a bakery, pharmacy, village store/newsagents, hairdressers, and a library.

Camaes House is located in a newly built small housing development (23 Homes) known as Cae Derwydd in Camaes bay.

There are a few ways that you can get to Cemaes by car from the rest of Wales, but the two simplest ways are to stick to the main A roads, the A5/A55 and the A5025.

If you take the Britannia Bridge on to the island which is on the A5/A55, you can then continue to Valley which is just before Holyhead. Then take the A5025 up the left side of the island to Cemaes.

The other option is to use the Menai Bridge and the A5025 round the right side of the island, through Benllech and Amlwch to Cemaes.

When you arrive at the village of Cemaes, if you are approaching from the Holyhead side, the development is on your left hand side (immediate left before the roundabout), or if you are approaching from the Amlwch direction, just after the roundabout in Cemaes the development will be on your right hand side.

The development is just off a road called "Tyddyn Gyrfa". As you enter this road bear left into the new development, past three homes and Cemaes House is the first house on the left hand side, marked as number 5.

Coming from Ireland?

If you're on the east coast of Ireland (Dublin area), Camaes House makes a great short break from Ireland. It is akin to Kerry and West Cork without the need for the arduos drive. Simply hop on the Stena Line high speed ferry from Dun Laoghaire or the Irish Ferries sailings from Dublin and you'll be resting at Camaes House within two hours of leaving Dublin. Camaes House is a mere 20-25 minute drive from the ferry port of Holyhead. It is amazing how close peace and tranquility can be for that much needed short break of summer get away.
