About this listing
The ‘View @ The Moorings’ is a first floor apartment on the edge of the water overlooking Cemaes Bay. Originally the apartment was part of a house built for a “Sea Captain”.
Highly rated on TripAdvisor, it has breath taking sea views from the property, on the edge of the idyllic village of Cemaes. Less than 5 minutes walk to the shops, pubs and cafes.
The large shared garden forms part of the sea wall, allowing direct access to the beach. The costal path passes directly outside the garden gates providing great coastal walks in either direction.
The ‘View @ The Moorings’ provides an ideal base for exploring the area. The large garden provides plenty of space for kayaks, plus storage for bicycles, fishing and beach equipment. For the adventurous there is a small slipway steps away from the gate which provides excellent launching for small sailing dinghy’s and kayaks.
A fantastic location for a family holiday, walking, kayaking, sailing, cycling, birdwatching or fishing. A real versatile location !

Stayed for a Christmas break at The View @ The Moorings. Flat was warm & cosy, with everything available to cook a Christmas Lunch. Arrived to a welcome package of Christmas goodies, milk in the fridge, & a bag of logs for the burner! A lovely festive feel, as the rooms were decked with all things ‘Christmas’. All much appreciated, and very thoughtful. There is a great balcony, with amazing views of Cemaes Bay, which would be fantastic to use in warmer times.. Comfy beds, all with new mattresses. Might be a struggle for someone with mobility problems, as a few external steps up to the flat. Property much improved by new owners. Coastal Holidays were friendly & extremely helpful.
“We stayed at the Moorings in Anglesey, over the weekend of the 13th Sept 2019.
Wonderful location, great accommodation, clean and very well presented, would have easily, comfortably slept 9 guests, parking for two cars easily at the rear of the property, I was very impressed with the before and aftercare from Coastal Holiday who informed me of everything we asked or required.
I will be returning to this Idyllic location again next year.
Great if you just want to chill out and relax with stunning sea and coastal views from your living room. You can even fish direct from the garden if you wanted too. Few pubs/restaurants within easy walking distance, albeit great facilities at the property should you wish to cook to yourself.
My thanks to Nigel and the team for a great bonding weekend with my dad and brother.
See you again soon.”
We stayed at View @ The Moorings in Camaes Bay for a week. The property owners, Nigel and Toria, are wonderful hosts. Milk in the fridge when we arrived and lots of thoughtful touches: hand gel, dishwasher tablets, kitchen foil etc. The flat is spacious, airy and very well equipped, and as for the balcony – amazing. We could sit out there and watch the bay all day. Oyster catchers, herons, swallows, kayaking, scuba diving, jet skiing, boats coming and going. There’s a big TV in the lounge but with a view like that, who needs the television? One evening Nigel and Toria (who were staying in the bottom flat at the time) invited us down to the cove for a beach fire, wine and fireworks, whilst the children all crabbed together. It was like something from a grown-up Famous Five! Staying at The View has been one of our best holidays ever and we will definitely be returning
The View is a newly refurbished property which is nicely appointed and equipped. The key selling point is it’s location at one end of the bay and it’s fantastic views from the kitchen and lounge windows, and the superb large balcony.
All the facilities you need are provided and are of a good standard. The owners were pleasant and helpful. There is a large garden area with access via a small wooden ladder to the beach, and a secluded viewpoint with table and chairs to enjoy the view from yet another angle! It’s a great place for either small families or a romantic getaway.
Enjoyed a lovely stay at the moorings. Location is excellent. Right on the beach so perfect for the kids. Quiet but close to all amenities. Flat is very comfortable, clean and has everything you need. Balcony is a wonderful addition. Fourth time we have stayed and will definitely come again.
What an amazing place to stay. Everything you could possible need for a home from home fee.
We were made to feel so welcome – Thank you Nigel. The views are wonderful, we sat hours in the sunroom just looking out, watching the birds.
To our absolute delight this morning we watched porpoise in the bay for nearly an hour. Amazing!
This will be a treasured memory. Would love to visit again in the near future. Thank you again.
We steyed here for 3 nights to see in the New year. The accommodation is warm and comfortable with lovely seaside touches throughout. The master bedroom has been redone and it is lovely. The children’s room is a great size and WiFi was welcomed in the cosy evenings in. The log burner was wonderful, kitchen well stocked perfect for preparing a meal to eat in the dining room with stunning views. Loads of towels which was great! The children delighted in hopping over the garden wall onto the beach to explore. We spent hours crabbing, building sandcastles, collecting sea glass , skimming stones on our ‘own beach’ . There is also a great coastal walk to do. We will definitely be back!
Perfect place to stay for a couple or small family. The views from the balcony were outstanding, the bed the comfiest I have ever slept on, and on top of that an excellent log burner. Direct access down some rocks onto the beach and less than 10 minutes walk to friendly pubs and a shop serving everything you could need. Just perfect.
We wanted a quiet location with easy access to walks. The property is ideally located by the beach with views across the bay. You can join the Wales Coastal path from the back garden. Cemaes is a very quiet place out of season, just the 2 pubs, but this suited us. Would definitely recommend a stay at the Moorings as the property itself is very well presented, clean and cosy!
We spent a lovely week here at the moorings despite the wind and the rain! The top flat is very comfortable with lovely views from the balcony.we used it as a haven from the constant activity going on in the downstairs flat where the rest of the family were busy perusing all manner of seaside activities which we could watch from the balcony.the whole flat is well equipped and very comfortable and we had a lovely relaxing holiday .
23 June delightful weeks hol.
This flat was lovely and comfortable to stay in. Everything you need in the kitchen.
Fabulous views, great sitting on the veranda, having breakfast and tea at night.
Just beautiful walking into the sitting room looking straight out over the bay.
Takes your breath away. So much to gaze at and watch coming an going of boats
The garden is lovely and the steps over the wall. Plenty of seating outside.
The shed was handy for our bikes.
Lovely location to stroll round the bay or walk the cliff tops.
Plenty of places and beaches to visit.
Would love to return to this Flat.
We wanted to take a break that was restful and restorative and The Moorings – Top flat certainly enabled us to do that.
Once we had transported our luggage from the car, there are quite a few steps, we were settled.
The views are amazing, the flat offers all the amenities you need and is VERY comfortable.
There are a wide variety of walks that allow you to see the local places of interest and if you are in a car you have the whole of Angelsey to enjoy.
Menaes Bay has a fantastic fish & chip shop and butcher, there is a small supermarket and a well stocked pharmacy, there are a few friendly pubs two of which serve food. We travelled to Red Wharf Bay and had a very good lunch at The Ship.
We would certainly come again!
We stayed in the Top Flat at the Moorings in Cemaes Bay at the end of July and what a location! The views from nearly all windows were absolutely amazing. And what a fantastic surprise to find a brand new balcony and terrace had been created (the pictures on the website and on Trip Advisor don’t show this). This gave us outside access directly from the living room where we could soak up the views and the sunshine. Elsewhere, the flat was spacious and comfortable, providing a great base for our annual ‘bucket and spade’ holiday. The double bedroom was spacious with plenty of cupboard and drawer space and the smaller room provides exciting sleeping options for an 8 year old. The small bathroom, with shower over the bath, was easily accessed from either bedroom. Towels and bedlinen were provided (which was surprisingly not the case with other holiday rentals). The kitchen / dining area had a huge window overlooking the bay which provided great views and a great light for painting, drawing and playing games when the weather wasn’t too brilliant and besides a capacious fridge with proper freezer, ceramic hob and wall mounted oven, there’s a dishwasher and washing machine too. There were a few things we could have done with in the kitchen – a potato peeler/scraper and a small kitchen knife for instance, but otherwise we had everything we needed. Who wants to peel potatoes on their holidays anyway! As well as one day on the beach, our trips and entertainment included a fabulous cliff top walk from the doorstep to the Porth Wen brick works and then back along country lanes, a visit to the Sea Zoo, a wet afternoon at the very lovely cinema in Holyhead (great value for money, by the way, and thanks to Disney for timing the launch of BFG just perfectly), a shorter but interesting walk around the village and visits to several tea-shop stops including the Heritage Centre tea room on the High Street. The Top Flat at the Moorings was excellent value for money and Cemaes Bay has everything you need for a bucket and spade holiday – two beaches, a butcher, a baker, a convenience store, 2 pubs and a hotel serving food, a highly rated fish and chip shop, a couple of cafes and there are gift shops and a gallery.
