  • "Our holiday at Rhiwlas was absolutely perfect, clean, comfortable and very well equipped."

    The seating areas in the garden are very well thought out, together with providing a parking area.The accommodation is very well situated for the coastal path and the harbour. We had a very welcoming and informative e-mail a few weeks before the holiday and on request, Steph provided us with a few suggestions where could have a meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary, that was dog friendly. Unfortunately, due to unexpected circumstances, we couldn’t celebrate as planned, but Steph and Steve surpassed all expectations as we arrived to beautiful bunch of flowers, a bottle of Prosecco and a anniversary card. Thank you

  • "We loved the house and its feel of home from home, we needed nothing at all over and above what the house offered."

    It was completely equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was a perfect base for our particular holiday and we'd totally recommend the house to anyone heading to Anglesey, in fact, I already have!

  • "Super stay at Rhiwlas, very well equipped, clean, comfy beds and great showers."

    Located in a small village with a great chippy and welcoming pubs less than 100 yards away. Pretty Amlwch Port literally around the corner, super for a gentle stroll and walking the dog. Great base for exploring Anglesey and it’s beautiful beaches.

  • "We were advised to be careful of where we parked and so on arrival parked at the front to allow our daughter to park at the rear of the property to unload."

    We were greeted by an extremely irate neighbour who was ‘fed up with visitors taking up space’ in their very narrow street with limited parking. Not a good start. Inside we found extremely (to say the least) tired furnishings. Sofas that were threadbare, one in each of the sitting and dining room. In addition some wicker chairs in the sitting room, which were not at all comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked but again all old and mismatched, drawers that couldn’t be opened and a half size dishwasher that the large plates would not go into otherwise they got in the way of the ‘spinner’ in the washer. My daughter found the washing machine to be less than clean inside and, due to wet weather, no dryer meant clothes airing within the house, not very successfully. Overall inside the property left us feeling a little uncomfortable about the cleanliness, especially given the Covid situation. We didn’t use outside, again due to weather, but it was much smaller than expected and would have proved a problem if we had all wanted to be outside for a bbq, say. Again the furniture did not look at all like it would be comfortable for an evening outside. Having said that, the owners were contactable and when I said about the state of the sofas she did respond, although I am not certain she was intending to do much about it as they were ‘away’. We took photographs of our main concerns and are happy to provide them upon request to Sykes. Overall, I would say that the property is overrated by Sykes and the descriptions are misleading. The area of Amlwch Port is also very run down and not perhaps the pretty area that one might hope for. We tried one of the local pubs, which was friendly, and the chip shop was very handy. Anglesey is a beautiful island with many lovely places to stay. I have been going there all my life. I won’t be using Sykes managed lettings again, as I do not feel they assess the properties on their books properly. I will be going to the island again but will avoid Amlwch Port.

    We are sorry to hear that the neighbour upset you, we did make you aware of the rear parking in the email we send you before your arrival date. We were not aware that one of the sofas had become threadbare which on inspection we believe has been caused by dogs owners allowing dogs on the sofa. We have ordered a brand new sofa which is on a 12 weeks delivery so in the mean time we have purchased covers for both sofas. The kitchen was only installed 2 years ago and we installed a smaller dishwasher due to the only space available next to the sink where the connections for water & drainage are. The house was built in 1800 so we have not gone for a modern furniture style. The house is family friendly without them having to worry about children breaking any house decorations /trinkets or crockery. Not sure why the washing machine was dirty inside but we have given it a deep clean, no dryer is provided as we do not feel it is very environmentally friendly to dry clothes and all rooms have radiators where clothes can be dried when they are wet. With respect to your Covid comment we provide signage & hand sanitiser in line with government guidelines and the house is professionally cleaned every Saturday. Sorry that it rained all week and you could not use outside but we do have cushions for the outside furniture which are kept in the outhouse and there are enough seats around the barbeque area for 6 people. When you text us we were in South Wales but we did response to your text and when we visited the house the following week we reviewed your comment and rectified your concerns regarding the sofa. Amlwch Port is one of the last working fishing port on the island so the fishermen's equipment is left on the quayside which we believe adds to its charm. Property Owner

  • "Nothing went wrong but our daughter was looking forward to the open fire but the owners had left a message on the fire not to be used and the reason for choosing the cottage was that it had an open fire."

    Just a bit disappointed that it was not what we had booked. However everything else was fine.

    We were sorry to hear that you were disappointed with not being able to use the fire. We have spent the last two years fully refurbishing the house and had just finished it two weeks before your arrival. We had the chimney swept and then tested the fire. It was then we found out the old back boiler still had water in it and this was turning to steam which was entering the room. I’m sure you can understand this was too dangerous to let you use the fire. We are going to remove the back boiler to make it safe to use the fire. Regards, Steve & Stephanie Property Owner

Nestled in the northerly town of Amlwch Port, on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, is this charming 1800's mid-terrace, double-fronted cottage.

Inside the owners have created a beautiful feeling with a modern interior that offers a real home from home vibe, with original mosaic flooring greeting you as soon as you enter.

Spend your evening keeping up to date with all your favourite shows and enjoying quality family time, whilst the open fire provides that extra bit of warmth.

Choose to dine at the dining table over a home-cooked meal with a refreshing glass of wine to toast to a wonderful holiday, or use this as a quiet space to catch up on some reading with the electric fire making it a cosy space to relax.

Once the evening draws to a close, choose from three well-presented bedrooms consisting of two doubles and an adult bunk, suitable for friends or families wishing to stay here.

Each bedroom comes with its own set of furniture for storage purposes whilst the master comes with its own en-suite shower room.

The rear garden has two areas of seating , one with bistro table & chairs and the other with raffia table with seating for 4.

Lying within the small seaside town of Amlwch, this property has access to a number of traditional Welsh eateries where you can sample some local delicacies, or pick up some last-minute ingredients from the local stores and supermarkets with fresh fish caught in the working port just 5 mins walk from the property.

While you're in the area visit the Heritage Copper Trail which is part of the beautiful 125-mile coastal path and is perfect for discovering a wealth of local history and walking opportunities.

Also nearby is the scenic hiking trails at Parys Mountain for those adventure-seekers, whilst Bull Bay Golf Club is also within reach.

You can take the ferry across to Dublin and spend a day enjoying the local Irish culture, or visit one of the nearby sandy beaches for a fun-filled afternoon.
