Glan Morfa aerial | Eco-friendly Anglesey retreat set for upgrade after sale to Actually Group

Published: 9:13 on 20 February 2022

An eco-friendly holiday retreat on Anglesey is set to get a significant upgrade after being purchased by the Actually Group, a UK hospitality and leisure developer which specialises in low-carbon and environmentally sensitive holiday developments.

With a price tag of £1.3m, the sale of Glan Morfa completed on 7th February 2022. The Actually Group has pledged to invest a further £1.5m to improve the quality of the accommodation and other facilities on the site.

The award-winning holiday retreat is on the outskirts of the quiet rural village of Llangaffo, south west Anglesey. It is home to seven attractive stone holiday cottages, which were converted from derelict farm outbuildings and a milking parlour in the 1990s. On the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the accommodation is set in 37 acres of land, part of which is managed as a nature reserve.

The site recently won a Green Tourism Gold Award, and comes with strong environmental credentials. The cottages are powered exclusively by renewable energy, including air source heat pumps, solar energy, and an on-site wind turbine. A reed bed system manages waste water, there are bird hides for nature enthusiasts to watch resident species including barn owls, osprey, and buzzards. The site even hosts the beehives of a local honey farmer.

From its hill ridge vantage point, guests of Glan Morfa enjoy far-reaching views across rolling countryside to Anglesey’s coastline and the Snowdonia mountains which lie beyond. The peaks of Yr Eifl (The Rivals) on the Llŷn Peninsula – around 25km as the crow flies – are clearly visible.

Actually Group says that upgrade works will include a full refurbishment of the seven cottages, as well as improvements to a games room, library, and laundry room. Works will be planned around existing bookings, with no disruption envisaged for guests.

As part of the upgrade works, Glan Morfa will also get a new website and brand refresh. Local suppliers working on the redevelopment project include Anglesey-based digital design and branding agency Creatives Meet, and North Wales contractor TB Jones Carpentry and Joinery.

Rhodri Andrews, Marketing Director at Actually Group, said: “Glan Morfa is an absolute gem of a holiday retreat, and we know that it is particularly well loved by environmentally conscious visitors who want to holiday with the lightest possible carbon footprint.

“We are delighted to have completed on our purchase, and we’re excited by the opportunity that further investment into the site will deliver for green tourism on Anglesey.”

Glan Morfa is ideally placed for families holidaying on Anglesey. It is just a couple of miles from the award-winning beach and nature reserve – including a population of red squirrels and the biggest raven roost in the UK – at Newborough Warren. The popular seaside village of Aberffraw, and the surf schools and cafés of Rhosneigr, are also within easy reach.

As well as its many regular holidaymakers, Glan Morfa hosts regular group retreats for The Breath Connection, an organisation which offers residential courses focused on mindful breathing and cold-water therapy to support physical and mental wellbeing.

Actually Group also owns and operates Rwst, a 4-star holiday lodge park in the historic market town of Llanrwst, Conwy. It has an administrative office in Colwyn Bay, and across its operational, administrative, and marketing teams, the group employs a team of 32.
