    • “Luxury and Superb Views”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Very luxurious property with all fittings of the highest quality. Superb view from every room and the patio area. Spacious and well equipped. The bathroom was quite compact, compared to the rest of the property, but quite adequate. Very good centre to visit the beaches of anglesey/Lleyn and the mountains of Snowdonia. Superstore only 5 mins away by car. Walking into town for local services is only for the very enthusiastic - expect nobody does this twice! That's why it has such a good view, and is so quiet and private.”

    • “Barn Conversation with Good Views over the Menai Straits & Anglesey”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Good sized barn conversation in an elevated position with good views towards Anglesey across the Menai Straits. The owners are very pleasant and whilst living close by, they do not intrude. The accommodation is split over two levels and is a two person property. On the ground floor is a spacious bedroom with patio windows overlooking the view. Next door is a spacious well equipped kitchen / diner with the same windows & views. Upstairs is the lounge, accessed from the kitchen by a spiral staircase. The staircase is quite steep and has polished wood treads. Take care or you could easily loose your footing. Downstairs on the other side of the kitchen is the bathroom. this was a bit of a let down as it is very compact, could have done with being another two foot wider. I see no reason why they could not have made it wider as there is extra space in an empty room at the end of the property that the owner seems to use as a storage area, if fact it was larger than the bathroom. Whilst the property was clean and reasonably equipped, it does miss the extra touches to warrant the 5 star rating that Sykes give the property. There was no welcome pack, not even a pint of milk. The only TV in the property was in the upstairs lounge and it took a little while to get used to using the two remotes needed to get a picture. A TV on the wall in the kitchen / dining area would have been a bonus. Wheelchair Users - Whilst there is wheelchair access to the bedroom from outside, and from there into the kitchen / dining room, the bathroom would be out of bounds unless you could walk in. The property is quite high up and the walk to the village shop & pub is only recommended for the fittest of people. It is exceedingly steep so be warned - better to take the car or get a taxi if you are going to the pub. There is little choice for eating out in the area, so be prepared to travel or eat in. The property is however conveniently situated for exploring Anglesey, Snowdonia, The Llyn Peninsular and beyond. Would we return? Well maybe, but there are much more comfortable properties available in the area and especially over in Anglesey.”

    • “Splendid Views”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The elevated position afforded views across to Anglesey from both the cottage and the patio. The barn conversion and the fittings and furnishings were of a high quality and made for an enjoyable stay. One minor downside of the elevated position is that you will probably need the car to get anywhere, particularly if elderly. The patio overlooks the owners garden which has a play area equipped with a trampoline etc. for their children. We found them to be well behaved and reasonably quiet but it might spoil the romantic setting for some, or at least remind them of the consequences! The owners were unobstrusive, but on hand if you needed them.”

    • “the very lovely views from front windows.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A very comfortable cottage but lacked any personal or warm touches. It was well equipped but rather functional. There was no 'welcome pack' of any kind not even a small jug of milk or a tea bag. We did leave a few basics behind for next visitors. It was, however, a lovely location and excellent barn conversion.”
