  • "We had an excellent week in Church Gate Cottage."

    It was in a beautiful location and met all the claims in the advert. I must comment on the beds too.....unusually comfortable for a holiday rental! We hope to return at a future date and highly recommend to all.

  • "The cottage was wonderful and was spotlessly clean with lots of lovely points."

    We loved the location and the beautifully maintained garden was a fantastic added bonus. We had a great week and will definitely return to explore Anglesey further. However, we did find the bedrooms slightly damp, the main bed was extremely comfortable but felt slightly small to be a king-sized (which was what was advertised), the sofa felt past it's best (not helped by only having one cushion) and the fridge was smaller than the one we have in our caravan fridge. None of these impacted on our enjoyment of the cottage but might be areas to consider for future improvement.

    The cottage is spacious and very well maintained. The garden is lovely and you can watch the rabbits in the churchyard from the kitchen window. There is a great walk across the golf course into Beaumaris. Perfect!

  • "This is, by far, THE best place we’ve stayed at on the isle."

    In fact I’d be keen on buying it! The owners, Huw & Gaynor are so helpful and friendly and make the stay that extra it better. The location could not be any more perfect for a truly relaxing break. We were lucky with the weather so spent a lot of time in the garden. The neighbours are also really lovely. If you stay in one place on the island, make sure it’s this one. Beautiful little cottage.

  • "This is our second visit to Church GateCottage."

    It is set in a tiny hamlet on the outskirts of Beaumaris. Neighbours are very friendly and welcoming. We took our pet - the garden is very safe and well fenced, we didn't have to worry about him. There is a car parking space for the cottage so the car was off the road. The cottage has been very tastefully decorated. Great thought has been put into what visitors may need. Everything we could possibly require was there -including Netflix and Amazon Prime. The new 'fridge was a bonus because we wanted to keep shopping to a minimum. Beds comfortable/clean. We had a wonderful relaxing time. Our only puzzle was where to the rotational washing line - we couldn't find a spot in the garden!?

  • "ThIs charming, spotlessly clean cottage is in a lovely quiet location opposite a church (which is sadly now closed) with lots of birds to spot and superb ever changing views of the Snowdonia mountains according to the weather conditions."

    The landscaped garden is a pleasure to sit in and there is a very ample private parking space which could easily fit 2 cars if needed. The interior is modern and fresh with a well equipped kitchen and bright living area. The wifi is excellent. The beds are extremely comfortable which meant we slept very well. Although the sofas are a little tired and you tend to sink into them everything else is a lot newer. We did have an issue with the toilet flush system while we were there but this was rectified by the owners and their plumber. We loved our stay here and would happily book this delightful cottage again.

    The owners gave us lots of recommendations which we followed up and some of the highlights of these were Newborough beach and Llanddona beach. Our little puppy Frankie loved the garden and you could tell the owners had thought about dogs when renovating the property. The island of Anglesey is beautiful and despite some very mixed weather we had a lovely time.

    We feel so lucky with our last minute holiday!! The house was very clean and we felt confident that it was being cleaned thoroughly between rentals. The beds were really comfy and we all slept well. The cottage was so peaceful- opposite a lovely little church with no through traffic as it is at the bottom of a lane. It felt like a lovely retreat. The kids really enjoyed their time there and had a lovely little garden to play out in which was a massive bonus. The kitchen was well equipped and the appliances were easy to use. Thank you so much- would really recommend this house to anyone.

    The cottage is lovely, with a small, sun trap garden with a dining table and chairs. The area is very tranquil with views of Snowdonia. Good parking facility and a large shed for bikes, wetsuits etc. There is a outside tap to clean off sand etc. The owners emailed in advance of our arrival which was appreciated. Welcome pack detailed all aspects of the property. We had a great week at Church Gate Cottage and would be happy to return.

  • "As usual when booking a cottage you are never quite sure what it will be like."

    We were thrilled to bits with Church Gate Cottage , it is sat in a peaceful little hamlet next to a beautiful old church. The cottage is spacious and pristine clean. The living room/ dining area/kitchen is bright with windows in all directions with two large comfy sofas , a large screen tv , wood burning stove , lovely kitchen with everything you could possibly need . The bedrooms have comfortable beds and sufficient hanging space . They are placed in such a position that when it’s a windy night you can’t hear a thing . The wet room is modern with a powerful shower sink and loo and you are provided with plenty of lovely quality fluffy towels. The entrance is spacious which we found useful fine erecting our dogs crate without being in the way. The garden is pretty and would be lovely to sit in in the summer . There are walks from the door. Beaumaris is a short drive down the hill , even if you don’t own a car there is a bus stop just around the corner . The views of the mountains are stunning and changed constantly . I would definitely recommend this cottage and we will be returning when we can.

  • "The cottage is absolutely beautiful and is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need."

    Beautiful decor and comfortable furnishings, plus its proximity to beaumaris and local beaches make it perfect for a relaxing holiday. We visited in winter and the weather was pretty awful so we spent quite a lot of time in the cottage. There is a range of DVDs provided which we made use of and we enjoyed family time playing games together. Our dog benefitted from the outdoor space and I was able to walk him down to the local beach or in the fields behind the church. We will definitely be coming here again.

About the location

BEAUMARIS

Menai Bridge 4 miles.

Beaumaris is a well known historic town on the Isle of Anglesey situated on the Menai Strait and overlooking the Snowdonia mountain range, making for the most stunning of sunrises. With its medieval castle (now a World Heritage site) dating back to the reign of Edward I and its Victorian pier, gaol and courthouse, it is also known as a major centre for yachting. Beaumaris is rich in history and retains much of its medieval street pattern. It’s setting, diversity of architectural styles and periods, differing scale, open spaces, varying roofs and overall quality contribute greatly to the town’s character. There is a good selection of shops, restaurants and public houses, as well as fishing opportunities and boat trips in the town, plus a golf course nearby. Along the coast is a large bay called Red Wharf Bay; its Welsh name is Traeth Coch (Red Beach) and the area is renowned for its glorious sunsets. The bay is very shallow and at low tide, almost 25 square kilometres (10 sq. mi.) of sand is uncovered providing safe bathing, perfect for wonderful family fun, fishing and miles of stunning scenic walks. Further afield is the port of Holyhead, which has regular ferry links to Dublin. Beaumaris is a good central base for touring Wales, in a beautiful location on the south coast of the picturesque Isle of Anglesey, within easy reach of the spectacular mountains of Snowdonia.
