  • "Salty Puffin is a lovely bungalow."

    Spacious, comfortable, well equipped and well situated for a peaceful break on the Isle of Anglesey. My hound and I loved it. It was my third visit to Anglesey and the nicest property I have stayed in thus far. Sadly, the weeks I would have liked next yar are already booked, but I hope to return in 2023.

  • "Very comfortable holiday home very well equipped with everything you could need."

    The beach is within easy walking distance but the way back is uphill a slight challenge for younger children. The garden is enclosed so safe for children and dogs a sun umbrella would help as it is a great lace for meals but can get very warm midday. Would definitely recommend it as a base for a holiday.

    Garden was Huge with Sun all day and off rd Parking if we had 1 little little gripe was the Patio Door could sometimes be a little difficult to unlock(might have been us ☺) Overall a great week away in a lovely part of the world in a lovely cottage Walking to Benllech Beach took approx 10 mins

  • "The cottage was in a peaceful location, everything we required was present to ensure we had a relaxing week, we would recommend the cottage."

    Perhaps the only thing to mention is the walk to the sea front is down a fairly steep hill and could be challenging for some.

  • "Spacious bungalow with a large rear garden."

    Lucky to watch a red squirrel playing in the garden one morning. Lots to do in the area and plenty of shops and take aways in Benllech. Just a ten minute walk down to the beach and as a bonus we had good weather.

  • "As mentioned by a previous holiday visitor the back garden is higher than the house and accessed by two different step features, which could be a disadvantage to mobile limited people."

    It has the sun on it all day too. But the bungalow is superb for all facilities. The final sat nav directions are misleading. Once into Rhianfa (the main road on to the bungalow estate, you need to take first left into the cul de sac, not first right (which is a curve in the road) then left. The post code must cover the larger area. Parking in the drive is necessary as the cul de sac has a turning area in front of the bungalow. Would certainly visit again.

  • "Although we are all living in difficult times, customers need to be treated with respect and as sensible adults."

    Most people take great care when they are on holiday ,after all we have paid good money to escape a world where everyone is constantly being dictated to. This holiday provided an oasis of peace and relaxation .

  • "Poor standard of cleanliness, particularly as we could not go in until 1700 to allow extra time for cleaning."

    Cobwebs on wall and dust on bedside table in back bedroom, filthy skirting board in dining area, dirt down side of toilet. Signs of damp in back bedroom and round dining room windows. Gardens were unkempt with weeds growing out of patio and piles of dead leaves in corners of concrete area round house which didn't look as if it had been swept for some time. Branches overgrowing driveway brushed against car. Peeling paint on guttering and fascia boards. House had a general neglected look from the front. The grass was cut while we were there but didn't improve things much. The cottage was spacious and comfortable but needs a bit of tlc.

  • "Very friendly owner who is helpful and lets you get on with your holiday."

    Excellent bungalow in a very nice location at the end of the culdesac so noone goes past you on the road. Garden is big and has a nice area where you can sit by teh table in teh evenings or in the sun during the day. Overall we had a very nice two weeks and quite lucky with the sun. Very seasidey inside. Would recommend. Caution - dont feed the seagulls in the garden. Do this at your peril, as they are very bossy, especially when they have babies, so walking up the road they do tend to swoop down to frighten you off, but you do get used to it!. My advice would be to stick to going to Snowdonia, (get there before 9am) the beach if you either dont have a dog, or one that mixes with other dogs ok, as people tend to let them roam free without a lead and visit llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrngogogoch if you want to get any gifts, as gift shops on Angelsey are few and far between. The beach at Benllech is nice if you mix with others on a hot day but the shop there is pretty useless. Forget Holyhead, unless you want to experience a very old and once popular seaside town being made into a refuge for people who avoid work and spend all day drinking and visiting the sad funfair.... you have been warned!, such a shame to see so many old saeside locatiobns taken over the by sit on you backside brigade. Anyway, lovelly bungalow, best location, lovelly people, would recommend highly.

  • "The house was excellent and we enjoyed our week but we would like to draw your attention to two areas."

    For us the rear garden was not adequately described. Neither the photos or description showed the raised nature of this properly. We have a blind spaniel that is quite old and we had thought it would be nice for her to roam about the rear garden without her lead but this was not possible due to the high wall and steps. This had been a key consideration in our choice of the property. Secondly it may be appropriate to alert prospective customers about the glass doors to the lounge and kitchen which do not appear to be toughened. This did not affect us in any way but may be a concern to people with younger children if indeed they are not toughened. These comments are aimed at providing a better description of the property rather than any criticism of the comfort and overall high standard of the accommodation which are a credit to its owners. The situation at the end of the cul de sac also ensured a quiet and private stay.

    Thank you for your feedback about your recent stay at Salty Puffin. We are glad that you enjoyed your week and found the property comfortable. I appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention. I have asked for the description of the garden to be amended to point out that it is raised and accessed by four steps. I would also like to reassure yourselves and other customers that the glass doors and panels in the property are re-inforced with a specialised safety covering. Thank you for your lovely comments and constructive feedback. Property Owner

    Lovely sun trap too, which meant that we were able to enjoy meals alfresco. Rooms bright, clean, lovely seaside theme running throughout the property. Ideally located, close to beach, shops, pubs and restaurants. By far the best property we have stayed at in Benllech which we have visited many times. Would definitely recommend.

Milk in the fridge tea and coffee sachets and cake so we had something to keep us going until our online food shop arrived .

  • "Overall the property was wonderful but just one comment, whilst we appreciate it was dog friendly and some dogs can be a touch whiffy, there was a rather extreme use of air fresheners and fabric sprays in the property which was quite overpowering."

    Unfortunately I suffered from some sort of allergic reaction to these which did have a bit of a negative effect on my enjoyment of the holiday. Apart from that can't fault the property for cleanliness, warm, comfort and location.

This pleasant bungalow is situated on the outskirts of Benllech, in a cosy cul-de-sac, conveniently placed for access to the beach and local amenities.

Perfect for couples or a small family, this cottage has been lovingly designed throughout with pure attention to detail, creating a homely setting for some well-earned relaxation.

A small porch welcomes you inside, continuing over to a light, airy lounge which features three comfortable sofas, a warming fire and views of the secluded garden to keep you company.

Follow the lovely hallway with its seaside accessories towards the two beautiful bedrooms, both neatly styled and finished with decorative pieces.

One room faces the front of the property, whilst the second looks out over the wonderful patio area to the rear.
