  • "Everything about Puffin Pad is 5 star quality."

    The beds are extremely comfortable - as is the lounge furniture (often not always the case in s/c properties). Our short break there coincided with wonderful autumnal weather and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Thank you so much for your 5 star feedback, much appreciated! We look forward to welcoming you back again. Regards Mark&Pam Property Owner

  • "Puffin Pad was perfect."

    It was very clean and well equipped and beautifully decorated. It was the perfect base for our holiday. Benllech has great eating places especially Pebbles restaurant.

    Thank you so much for your 5* review. We are so pleased that Puffin Pad ticked all the boxes and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Thank you again! Mark&Pam Property Owner

  • "Puffin Pad is in a lovely location and within walking distance of the beach, which was great!"

    It is a beautifully-appointed apartment, but the outdoor sitting area is really only a couple of benches on the car park... The kitchen sink is squashed in a corner and the wardrobe in the twin room is barely accessible. I am surprised to have found any snags in a 5 star property, and the sloping ceilings in the three main rooms mean you have to bend to reach the windows and risk banging your head.

    Hello Pam We are really sorry you felt there were a number of snags. Of course in a small top floor holiday apartment it is difficult to avoid compromise with regard to layout and design. In an 18 apartment block with need for parking for everyone space is also limited, the covered bbq area with benches and seating over the bridge is generally sufficient for the odd occasion when the beach isn’t calling. We are looking into changing the photos to hopefully show even more clearly what to expect. Property Owner

  • "Apartment was clean and is in a good location for the beach and the facilities in Benllech ."

    The space in the bedrooms and living area is restricted by the infrastructure for the dormer windows . The kitchen is small - very little space for non fridge food - when emptying the dishwasher you have to stack the pots on the worktop because with the door open you can’t reach the cupboard . It is awkward to open the drawers on the washing machine because it is in a cupboard . We would highly recommend Benllech .

    It was actually too warm on arrival and my fault I was slow in contacting Mark the owner. As soon as we did he adjusted it by phone and then it was very comfortable. Safe environment in gated accommodation. Weather sunny and beach walks enjoyed. One wild wet day so we took advantage of the sea views and read our books. Overall a great relaxing time was had.

Ideal location for Benllech beach (literally 2 min walk) as well as a good base for surrounding area. Secure car parking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, so much so on our return we went to book for the same period next year only to discover it’s over £200 more expensive than the same weekend we have just had, working out at £210 / night. So whilst the accommodation is amazing we figured we could probably spent the £600 + quoted in a very nice hotel where breakfast and possibly dinner would be included !

The property

Puffin Pad is a top floor holiday apartment in the popular seaside village of Benllech on the east coast of Anglesey.

The high-quality finishes and the owner’s attention to detail makes Puffin Pad a very comfortable place to stay.

Juliette balconies allow you to fully appreciate the views and the sea air.

During the cooler months the underfloor heating will keep you warm and cosy after a day out exploring.

Puffin Pad is set within a modern development with gated entry and lift access.

This makes it ideal for those wanting a traditional seaside holiday on Anglesey but in a contemporary holiday apartment setting.

The kitchen, dining and sitting area is a lovely open planned space with balcony windows that let the light flood in.

The kitchen is well equipped with an electric cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine and a lovely wooden dining table.

There is comfortable seating and a large wall mounted Smart TV.

There is a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room with a loo and hand wash basin.

The second bedroom is a twin room.

Both bedrooms benefit from a flat screen TV and Juliette balconies.

The bathroom has a bath and shower over, loo and hand wash basin. There is a communal garden with a courtyard and barbecue area.

The pretty stream set in a natural landscape is a lovely place to sit with a glass of wine, a cold beer, or even a hot cup of tea and listening to the trickle of water. There is a private residents parking area with allocated parking for one car.

There is extra parking for visitors, but this is available on a first come, first served basis and cannot be guaranteed. Benllech is a firm favourite with visitors all year round.

Puffin Pad is just a short stroll from the sandy beach, pubs, restaurants and cafes.

It is the perfect spot to enjoy a walk along the coastal footpath or enjoy one of the many watersports on offer nearby.
