Stayed at this cottage for a week in October. The party consisted of four adults (two couples), two infants and a lively border collie.
Let me cut right to that chase, we cannot recommend this cottage, location or its owners highly enough. If you're looking at self catering property in Angelsey and your party numbers eight or less look no further! You will find no better, and for a lot more money I suspect you would often get a lot less!
The location is on a working cattle farm. But besides the odd "mooo" and occasional passing tractor you feel like you are miles from anywhere. The views over the bay and Holyhead are outstanding and are frankly a major selling point by themself. A lovely patio and equally lovely conservatory overlook the sea and are wonderful spots to relax in the day and amazing star gazing locations at night. The beach is nearbye (10-15 mins walk), a shop is in the village down the road and larger shops are a short drive away. Equally there are numerous pubs within short drives of the cottage. If you want a relaxing spot, this ticks all the boxes.
The house is lovely. Spacious but cosy and extremely well furnished. Two people could stay here and feel cosy, but the sleeping arrangements and kitchen would easily accommodate 6-8 people. Throw in the conservatory and patio and you're flushed with space. The bathroom has a jacuzzi bath (recommended!) and the master bedroom an en suite with plenty of room for a cot or such like. The lounge is lovely with a fireplace, large TV and sofas designed to fall asleep on! The kitchen is very well equipped and a pleasure to both use and hang out in. A large downstairs shower (three bathrooms in total) and utility room with washing machine are very handy. A fully enclosed front garden was brilliant for our dog meaning he could roam free but not run off. It would be excellent for young children also.
The owners were a delight! Welcoming from the start and always on hand if needed but never intruding on our privacy. Kind offers to tour the farm (recommended for younger visitors!) and explore their land (which surrounds the cottage) made us feel very comfortable and removed any awkwardness about where we could and could not roam (everywhere!). As dog owners this was lovely as it was nice to know we could walk him right on our doorstep. On departure the owner asked could they improve the cottage (a nice gesture) and with 100% sincerity We could not think of a thing!
We have stayed at a number of holiday cottages and would without doubt rank this right towards the top in every department. We will return and would heartily recommend it to anyone.
Tips: Dinner at The White Eagle pub a few miles away was excellent. 'Sandy Beach' is a short drive away but an excellent dog walking beach. As the owners will tell you, dare to explore the local area! Numerous local lanes and paths may seem insignificant but often lead to amazing beaches or interesting walks.
Please note our photos were taken on departure. The house was spotless on arrival.
