  • "This house is amazing, the kitchen is so well equipped, the big electric range was brilliant we did a huge easter roast lamb dinner for 11 and had more than enough pans, roasting trays, and serving dishes."

    The huge front lounge is fab for family games and the smaller back lounge is cozy and comfy enough for us all to chat and watch TV. Would 100% go back

  • "Loved our stay in Anglesey In Tan y Coed…… House and views spectacular."

    Could not believe the size of the property. Master Bedroom was amazing like your staying in your own Stately home. Loved the homely feel with photographs all around, and furniture in kept with the age of the property. Some tired areas, en-suite in master bedroom is old and the heating does not work so was unusable. There were other bathrooms and showers to use which had already been modernised so I would imagine the en-suite would be next. Could do with a deep clean in some rooms, and perhaps lick of paint on doors to freshen up surroundings. Would not want to modernise this place as the character and charm makes it unique that’s what we loved about it. For all you ghost hunters, one of our party felt a presence and from her description seemed pretty well matched with a person who had lived there! Thank you too Lucy who was so helpful with all her extra info. Thank you for making my 50th birthday so memorable The Mellor Family, Horton Family, Aunties, Uncles and Nieces.

  • "This year our family - ages 4 to 79 - was able to spend a Christmas week together at Tan Y Coed."

    Tan Y Coed is a delightful big house in a beautiful location on the Menai Strait. Even in the wind and driving rain of this winter, we were warm and comfortable and together for Christmas. We were able to admire the amazing view across to Bangor and (sometimes, when the cloud lifted) Snowdonia. The house has been well used and well loved by its owners, with great character. It felt like staying in a family's holiday house, I think because it still is that. The house is not modern, and one should not expect today's new build standards, but it had everything ten people needed and there is evidence of gradual modernisation done well - some replacement windows, updated bathrooms, a new oven/hob/range. We were very comfortable, with ample space to celebrate Christmas across the big (red) reception room and a smaller (blue) snug, as well as the billiards room, of course. There was even a Christmas tree and tinsel available, which helped to lift our spirits in front of the wood burner. The kitchen/diner easily facilitated a festive feast and seated ten or twelve satisfactorily. (We decided converting the snooker table would be just too big.) We can imagine the spectacular location in the summer, with blue sky, a barbecue on the terrace and watersports below, and we would return without hesitation for the right gathering. Other notes: One TV, how refreshing to not have screens everywhere! Ample wifi. Games available for all ages. Supplies readily available very locally; bigger shops in Bangor not much further. Crabs readily catchable from the pier in Beaumaris using borrowed lines and nets, even in December, to the delight of youngsters.

  • "Dirty, seriously damp and smelled awful."

    Most of our group left early, couldn’t cope with the state of the place, damp smell and one room uninhabitable. Sykes cottages apparently visited the property after we complained and put this down to the character of the building. None of this was apparent when I spent a fortune booking a speciial break with the family to mark a significant event. Holiday ruined. I won’t be trusting Sykes again.

    Dear Anthony, I'm sorry that Tan y Coed didn't meet with your expectations. We have had some unusually wet weather recently which always affects the house as it is built into the rock face. Our heating usually counteracts this problem but we had a major issue with the boiler which was only just resolved in time for your arrival. I can only imagine that the house did not have enough time to completely warm through and dry out again before your stay. We have maintenance scheduled for November to re-plaster along the corridor to the kitchen which is always a problem area. This will hopefully improve any damp issues in the future. Apologies again.

  • "This is a fantastic house for a large group of family or friends."

    It is vast, full of interesting things, and with wonderful views over the Straits. It has access to its own jetty, and beach at low tide, and crabbing lines and wetsuits can be borrowed. Both the house and its contents are showing their age, but while this makes for some maintenance issues, it also makes for a relaxing holiday. The contact for the property was very approachable and helpful. The two sitting rooms mean that younger members of the group can have a space of their own, and the full-sized billiard table is a terrific asset. There is plenty of outside space for good weather, and lots of games for bad. Just be aware that whoever has the enormous master bedroom and its ensuite may experience some envy from the rest of the group!

  • "We had a fantastic stay here."

    We had a large adult family group and it easily accommodated everyone. Kitchen has everything in abundance, and a large table for everyone to gather around. Billard room and table-tennis plus loads of games kept everyone happy. Views absolutely incredible and patio was an excellent space we used alot, watching the world go by on the water. House was in a great location for exploring. Downsides for us, one lovely bathroom which everyone wanted to use. It had other bathrooms but not as nice showers. House and grounds were a bit inaccessible for my elderly family member. There were a lot of notes of instructions everywhere that became a bit of a family joke. They were generally helpful but abundant. And there was a lot of car logistics as we attempted to get cars turned to go up steep drive. Overall it's a splendid old house and grounds which are clearly loved and well used so hence show their age in parts but that suited us and we would return.

  • "This is a beautiful 200 year old house with an amazing history, stunning location, spacious accommodation and is well stocked with everything needed for a great extended family stay."

    Our younger guests were particularly excited by the dressing up box contents. Plenty to do, including a full sized billiards table, which can be converted into a huge dining table, although the kitchen table seats 10 comfortably. The steps down to the landing stage are tricky, but negotiable with care, obviously very young children or elderly or infirm folk should use an alternative route. There are plenty of good beaches a short ride away. The driveway is a challenge to reverse into, and not much space to turn cars at the bottom although it is possible. You can park on the road side of the house, off road. It’s quite a job to thoroughly clean a house this size, I thought the important things were done and the odd cobweb is to be expected. Due to the location, built into the side of the hill, a slight odour of damp is present in some places. All the main rooms and bedrooms look outwards into the Menai Strait, so are fine in that regard, and the views towards Snowdonia, Bangor, and the Menai bridge are breathtaking. Overall we were enchanted and delighted with our stay, and thank you to Lucy for prompt responses to my few queries.

    The house was perfect with plenty of space for all of us. It was extremely well equipped with everything we could possibly need, a real family home. The younger adults loved the kitchen so much that they happily cooked for us so that we only ate out once. (The neighbouring Gazelle was very good.) The two year old loved all the toys and the older members enjoyed just looking at the view even if they couldn't make it down to the jetty. The weather wasn't brilliant and we couldn't make the most of the garden but there was plenty to occupy us all. Our contact Lucy was particularly helpful both before and during the holiday.

Also the outside furniture could be more user friendly. That said we were not in the house much as we were down for a wedding. The en suite room was like a honey moon suite as a room, such stunning views from the large and luxurious bed. Thank you. Warmest Jen and family

    Location is great, good for exploring the rest of Anglesey and mainland, 2 miles to menai bridge (walking distance for most) + there is access down to the Menai Strait from the property. The facilities in the house were ideal, comfortable bedrooms, the kitchen had everything we needed for the large group and the snooker table/ping pong table we were great fun for the kids. Owner/host was more than happy to communicate and assist by phone if required. We had a wonderful time partly due to getting decent weather all of the week which meant we could make most of the outdoor facilities when at the property.

The master bedroom is huge and sorry to go on about the views but they are something else.

Great facilities, and plenty of well-placed instructions as to how to make the most of our stay. The owner was great at letting us know of any potential issues in advance. It was pretty chilly - even with the heating on and a boost - but that I think goes with the territory of staying in any older building during a cold snap! We were all very impressed and would love to stay here again.

The friendly helpful owner is always available should any problems arise. Save us a week for next year !!

  • "As a family we stayed here over the Christmas period and it was wonderful."

    Super spacious and everything we expected from such a large period property. The drawing room is magnificent and became our focal point for the family to gather with the lovely log burning fire and although lived in, the sofas and armchairs are very comfy. The views across the Menai are breathtaking, we definitely felt like we were staying in one of the most established houses on the Straits. We walked regularly to The Gazelle Pub/Hotel which serves excellent food and has an equally amazing view of the Straits and Snowdonia mountain range. Beaumaris heaves with character and the shops/ boutiques/ restaurants that have opened there over the last few years are really good. Menai Bridge is a 5 minutes drive with a great Waitrose and some super restaurants to eat in- although we would recommend booking at busy times. Happy memories made on this trip, we will definitely return!

  • "I regularly spend holiday and family time at this large magical family home in Angelsey."

    Tan y Coed is an historic building with direct access to the Menai straits and incredible views over the water. The vast main living room with huge log fire makes for super cosy afternoons and the master bedroom suite has arguably the best view of the Menai Straits from anywhere. The house is perfect for active families with loads of teenage kids as there are plenty of bedrooms and lots to do on the water and surrounding area. There are heaps of toys as well as the snooker table and lots of games. Perfect for large active families who like to have fun. Some of my most magical lifetime memories were made here.

    Loads to do, querky bits to look at and a big well equipped kitchen to cook and eat in. Easy but steep access to the boathouse and foreshore, (follow the advice sheet and keep an eye on the tide.). The heating works well, the wood fire is fun and the whole place is relaxing. The charm is in the usedness of the whole house, it’s almost straight from a 1940’s detective film. . . Great fun, great few days.

  • "Let's start off with the positives."

    The views from the garden over the Menai Straight and Bridge are stunning. If your lucky enough to have a warm sunny day relaxing outside. The house is massive, but only the master bedroom and lounge are a reasonable size, a lot is taken up with a bizarre staircase that a Cludo board would be proud of. However, the garden furniture is falling apart, and the path under the balcony decking needs a machete to get through. As you walk in the front door that you can only half open your greeted with that smell of Eau de Damp, threadbare carpets and furniture in the main lounge, and bizarrely personal photos everywhere of what must be the largest extended family in North Wales from the 70's to the Noughties. Moving back into the spooky hallway with a dressing box, yes I repeat, an (adult) dressing box, a piano with missing keys, a giant painting of 3 girls with the middle ones eyes following you down the corridor, snail or slug trails on the carpet, and an internal wall that is so wet it almost has water running down it when it rains (this is Wales), you realise that whoever had Tan Y Coed as their family holiday home left it 20 years ago and that's when the maintenance and upkeep ended. The billiard room has 7 reds and 16 pinks, but full size and useable if you exchange 6's for 1's. Liberal signs festoon everywhere, with guidence on the do's, don'ts and quirks of the house. There is a wet room with wet suits to use for water sports, but not sure if the paddle board and kayak on the decking are for guest use or not, plus to get to said decking one needs to use Google maps and the front steps by the drive rather than the rear steps to the deepest Congo. You will now get to the smaller rear lounge with the earliest version of Sonys flat screen TV, Sky, and the hardest settee known to man. All seats are, to be blunt, knackered, threadbare, dust ridden, and basically filthy. Cobwebs are everywhere. We now enter the kitchen, brace yourselves. The table that seats 10, 12 at a push, needs a flipping good scrub in fact a deep sanding down and re-varnish, sticky doesn't explain its lack of hygiene, at least your plates won't slip off onto the tiles. Kitchen gadgets are everywhere, but you'd be taking risk to use the bread maker and all electrical devices and lights have PAT testing stickers of which ran out a year ago. You would assume Sykes would be checking up on this. A glance at the main consumer units indicates their next inspection date was due January 2006! The pantry, and its leaking fridge freezer, explained away by another sign saying that "don't be concerned about water on the floor this is a outside pantry" The scullery, has a washing machine, the tumble dryer now works after I cleaned the filters. Here resides the high level cobweb feather dusters which haven't been used since Agragog from Harry Potter and her children moved in. The "Sheila maid" from the ark has been so well used its wooden cross bars are now black, so just hang up anything white for your own stripped t-shirts. The main master suite with its own en-suite bathroom has stunning views of the Menai with warnings on how to open and close the heavy curtains. The 6' bed is, to be fair, comfortable, but what is most disconcerting is the massive wall hanging Bayeux tapestry behind the bed with huge stain in the middle from what must have been a "I can't be bothered to go to the en-suite" moment. The other bedrooms are all dated, with random sinks in the corner, stained and bare carpets throughout, and one bathroom has a Jackson Pollock inspired mold design on the wall. In fact damp mould is to be found all around. However we seem to be the only guest's to feel their £4k for a weeks family holiday, which after the pandemic, has been long looked forward too, was ruined by such a filthy and rundown house. The guest book and other reviews seem to be glowing for some bizarre reason. The £16K a month income the owners and Sykes are getting needs to be reinvested in Tan Y Coed and not the other mansion(s) that are on the hung on the hall walls for us to view.

  • "This was a lovely very large property in a beautiful location , it had an efficient heating system and plentiful supply of hot water all essential to a large multigenerational family group."

    However the kitchen should have been better equipped for a property catering to larger groups with more (and new) crockery and cutlery needed (although there was a plentiful supply of glasses, cooking pots and pans and serving dishes), better organised and less cluttered (every single kitchen drawer was full of useless bits and pieces including old creams, ointments and medication most unsuitable to be left in a property rented to families with young children) and was not terribly clean. Dining in the billiard room (as shown in pictures advertising the property) may be an option for a special occasion if caterers were used but was not really a functional option for everyday dining especially with the equipment provided. We were generally more than happy with the 'shabby chic' style of the property however nearly all of the seating in the large formal living room was uncomfortable with broken springs and webbing making it virtually unuseable. Overall we had a thoroughly enjoyable family christmas at Tan y Coed and the positives outweighed the negatives - however the negatives outlined above were significant although they could be very easily rectified and would improve the rental experience enormously.

The property

Words cannot describe how amazing this holiday house is!

Standing above the Menai Strait, on Anglesey, half way between Menai Bridge and Beaumaris, it has stunning views with the dramatic backdrop of Snowdonia and its ever changing scenery.

At night time the twinkling lights of boats sitting on their moorings, floodlit Penrhyn castle and the moonlight on the mountains and sea is magical. The large welcoming hall and splendid staircase make a fitting entrance to this magnificent house.

The drawing room is just waiting to be filled with a gathering of family and friends.

Throw open the French windows and enjoy a drink on the terrace before dinner.

The views are stunning. Or relax in front of the log burning stove in the winter months.

Comfy chairs and sofas, a card table and a special scrabble table completes the picture. The billiard room doubles as a dining room.

If you put the top on the billiard table and gather the chairs together you have a formal dining room. The sitting room is ideal for children.

It has a TV with DVD, toy cupboard, crayoning table and plenty of books.

French windows open on to the terrace. The gorgeous kitchen has a large farmhouse table and chairs to seat everyone.

It is well equipped for cooking for large numbers with a Rangemaster cooker with two ovens and a six ring gas hob with griddle, magimix, hand blender, electric whisk, toasted sandwich maker and plenty of sensible sized saucepans and serving dishes.

There is a pantry with slate tops housing a fridge / freezer and microwave. The utility room has a washing machine, tumble drier, drinks fridge and door to the garden. There are two downstairs cloakrooms.

One with a loo and the other with a loo, wash hand basin and shower together with a collection of good life jackets - perfect for days out crabbing.

There is also a dressing up chest and a collection of children's toys. Upstairs there are six bedrooms and three bathrooms.
