  • "Cute little cottage on a country lane."

    No TV, but nice to do without it for a week! Everything you could want was provided. Very clean & tidy. Only problems - The parking on the lane outside the property, which was tight, with large tractors frequently passing by. Also, the basin in the bathroom had the slowest hot water supply ever. We enjoyed the week though 10/10

  • "A comfortable property in a beautiful part of the world."

    The cottage suited my wife and I perfectly and our dog loved the two gardens. I needed to contact the owner with a brief question she was easy to contact ,friendly and helpful. We enjoy visiting Anglesey and do so a couple of times a year. We will happily revisit Ffrwd cottage should it be available on dates we wish to travel. Recommended.

    Very pleased you enjoyed your holiday in the cottage and thank you for taking the time to recommend us. Hope you will return. Property Owner

  • "No padlock on the side gate, No wood in in fire basket, spiders and cobwebs across the ceilings, spiders squashed on walls, Loud extractor fan in bathroom which you hear in bedroom, Twin bedroom needs to be changed around to give more room."

    perhaps put beds either side of the door entrance so each bed has an exit to the middle of the room, Outside the overgrowth on the walled garden needs attention, caught my coat on brambles, the path has brambles and very slippy and uneven. Could do with a porch on the kitchen entrance to put wet boots and coats, if the side garden had part of it given over to a car parking area would be great, A very sweet little cottage, great location.

    The only small negative was that after long days of walking it would have been great to come back to more comfortable seating.Overall we were very happy with the cottage and the housekeeper was super helpful providing us with tips on where to eat out, places to visit etc .

    Exceptionally clean and well maintained with everything we could have ever needed. A perfect location to explore the beautiful island and coastline. A little gem. My only recommendation is comfier chairs by the fire but as it was summertime it wasn’t a problem. Beautiful natural garden and wonderfully peaceful.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent visit to Ffrwd Cottage and for raising the problem you had with the hot water. We will look into it. So that guests have a comfortable visit to the cottage, we provide plenty of guidance on how to get the best of any stay - including advice on how to light the stove - and who to contact if help is required. As the pictures on the website show, the cottage is simple and small but as you booked for a party of two there would have been sufficient seating. Sorry to hear that you didn't find it comfortable.

  • "Ffrwd cottage is wonderful."

    Although compact it has been carefully planned and furnished, and the garden is fabulous. I think there may be problems if there were more than 2 in the party as space is at a premium, but for us it was perfect. There is really is no problem with parking at all. We hadn't visited this part of Anglesey before, and it is stunning - particularly the dunes and beach at Aberffraw.

  • "We felt under stress from the tractors each day virtually hitting the car as no space to park as stated- with no mention of tractors though-also whilst driving on very narrow lanes."

    The cottage was smaller than it looked on the photos as often happens. The best thing was the open fire which made it cosy when able to work the heating as at first chilly. The house keeper was very kind and helpful once we spoke on the phone. We had check in at 5pm and officially leave at 9am due to extra covid cleaning- so all in all not very relaxing sorry to say. Anglesey is a lovely area though to visit if the weather is on your side, otherwise not much to do at all.

  • "Ffrwd cottage was a lovely little hideaway far from the madding crowd."

    Ok, there were only two comfy chairs, no TV (we didn’t miss it) and no microwave due to small living area. However, there was a lot to enjoy such as the beautiful secluded garden among fields, barbecue outside, the wood burning stove which made it extra cosy and the owner kindly provided some logs (it was summer, but you could have thought otherwise due to the weather). The cottage was also really clean and nicely decorated and the beds very comfortable.

  • "Such a cute cottage, and so well put together."

    The small kitchen was very cleverly done with everything we needed, and the fabrics and furnishings were just perfect for the space. We used one of the deckchairs with a woolen throw over it, to create an extra chair, but our family of four always felt comfortable when relaxing in the cottage. It did rain a lot during our stay and I feel such an old cottage may have battled with damp weather, but it didn't affect our comfort. (The only down side was probably the wifi which was better than ours at home and we had remind our 11 son to talk to us every so often!) Some people had commented on the on road parking, but we had a VW transporter van which we always managed to tuck right into the wall, and never had any issues from the busy farmers and their large vehicles passing by. The cottage is beautifully presented adequately equipped and a very relaxing place to have as your Anglesey base. The nearest beaches are brilliant for children who like sand, and further round the coast there are plenty more to explore and enjoy.

    Beautiful location, fab enclosed garden for canine friends, gorgeous cottage that has clearly been renovated to a high standard (the kitchen was amazing!), comfortable beds, and cosy woodburning stove. Perfect spot for exploring Anglesey. And a note on parking – this was NO problem whatsoever! We had already looked on street-view prior to our arrival so we knew what to expect, but other than reversing to and fro for a short time to get as close to the cottage as possible, pushing in wing mirrors, we had no issues. We even had our smallish Toyota Yaris as well as a large Toyota RAV SUV parked up outside at the same time, with tractors going past with ease (and sometimes surprisingly fast!). Please don't let the parking reviews put you off coming here, it's beautiful. Thank you so much to the owners for our wonderful stay :D

  • "Very nice clean cottage and garden."

    Only criticism is the car parking. The description says room for parking a car, although we questioned this with you after looking on Google earth we found the only space available was less than the width of our small Jazz car ! Fortunately we took traffic cones with us to place front and back of the vehicle together with the cottage rubbish bins . We were assured that this had never posed a problem as road was not busy however most days huge tractors pulling farm equipment had to slow down and rush hours many cars rushed by despite the cottage being located near a bend on the road. We think it would have been more honest to reveal this especially if customers have even slightly larger cars which we feel would be quite vulnerable to damage. Surprised owners have not made a simple parking run in into the side garden where there is already a shed. A microwave would also be handy as supplied with most other lets. Otherwise, it was a lovely cottage.

  • "We enjoyed it very much, but that was because there were only two of us."

    Two adults and two children would be okay, but I wouldn’t recommend it to four adults to share, that’s why I lowered the ‘accuracy of the listing’ score. Otherwise, for the two of us, it was great.

  • "Parking at this property is a problem as the photograph and information given leads one to believe that a proper parking space was available."

    In fact, the photograph is of the back of the cottage and parking available is on a VERY narrow lane at the front. There is a large gap above the window in the twin bedded room and a consequent cold draught. The two 'armchairs' provided are totally inadequate and uncomfortable after a while. There needs to be at least two comfortable chairs in the living area not two old, small, cane ones as currently provided.

    Thank you for taking the time to let us know your feedback. We apologise if there was some confusion regarding the parking. We do state that it is on-street at the front of the cottage and whilst we appreciate the lane is narrow, the infrequent farm traffic on the lane is very used to cars being parked here, and to date we have not encountered any problems. This is a very old cottage, which we have furnished simply to reflect its character, age and space and we hope that this is clearly represented in the photos. We will of course take your comments on board. Property Owner
