  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Menai cottage."

    Great location to explore Anglesey and North Wales. Lovely cottage that had everything we needed for our week in Feb. It was lovely and warm, had a comfy bed, friendly local pub across the road, brill. Nice welcome from the owner who was there on hand to ensure we're had a good stay at the cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage, very dog friendly, our dog went straight to the dog bed provided when we arrived and made herself at home."

    The cottage is well equipped, clean and warm . The view from the front is awesome. Well situated to explore Ynys Mon. Lots of information provided about the island, found this useful in planning our trips. The cafe across the road is excellent and pub is nearby. Very comfortable bed, slept in a few times, normally don't sleep past 6am at home! Had a lovely stay and hope to be back soon.

  • "Needs updating."

    Stains on carpets, paint peeling off walls both inside and out. Skirting boards off the walls.

    Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. With bookings being back to back with a few hours to hand over before the next guest it’s difficult to carry out the following work; 1) wet vac the only carpet in the property to the stair and bedroom due to guests walking through the property with dirty shoes. 2) one skirting loose in the bathroom. 3) internal decoration is difficult in a few hours in between guests and as it’s an old cottage there are some damp areas as it’s a stone building. The area around the window is peeling due to water through the window that’s often left open. 4) the external decoration to small area at the rear where there is a plant growing against the wall. All the above items can be carried out once I have a few spare days with no guests. Thank you again for staying and for your feedback. Kind Regards Property Owner

    Richard is a lovely host and is always there to help if you need him. Thank you for our welcome gift it was very much appreciated. The cottage is so quaint and has a large gated front garden with the most amazing view over wales, and lovley sun trap private court yard to the rear of the property. Excellent for your fur babies. It is also great for walks with the dog down to the straight, just go passed the coffee shop and follow the lane down to the house with the white stones, go passed the house not left and you will come to a beautiful pebble beach. Very quite and un spoilt. This cottage is in a great spot for discovering Anglesey and we are looking forward to our 3rd visit see you soon Richard.

    Wonderful touch by Richard to leave a card and a couple of gifts. Only thing is, we feel the cottage needs a freshened up - paint peeling in a few places, kitchen stools could do with a varnish etc

    Thank you, appreciate your feedback. The moment I have a free week the cottage has planned maintenance. It’s been really busy all year thankfully and not had time so far. Thank you again for staying with us. Kind Regards Richard Property Owner

  • "A really lovely and relaxing stay at Menai Cottage."

    Ideal for a couple well kept, a nice comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and reliable shower. Great location, excellent views good parking. Loved the pub and ate there, also the cafe which did a very decent bacon sandwich. Perfect for exploring Anglesey with gorgeous beaches a short drive away and great place to eat like Dylan’s and the Oystercatcher. However you don’t need to move as the pub food is very nice and not expensive. The dogs loved it too, a great enclosed area at the front and back of the property, very safe and secure. Richard, the owner thanks, you are very welcoming and we appreciated your text to let us know the cottage was ready. We loved your fresh eggs and gift too, such a nice touch. We really enjoyed our stay and it’s clear that you make an effort to ensure that all goes to plan.

  • "Amazing stay at Menai Cottage everything was perfect, so well kept and many amazing facilities."

    The bed is comfy and the shower really powerful and hot. Pleasantly surprised too as the internet was way better than we had hoped with both WiFi speed and Smart TV choices. Sofa on the small side for those who like to lounge together but that is quite literally my only tiny criticism, and the cottage is small so it’s proportional. Mabel our dog was very happy with her welcome treats and we too were grateful with the local treats left by Richard the owner. A lovely touch. The rear garden is a little Sun trap for nice breakfasts and quiet reading time. We would love to come back and miss it already.

    Great location with fabulous walks and beaches within easy reach. Nice pub across the road. Lovely, enclosed dog friendly court yard at the back of the cottage - a little sun trap in the evening, along with a nice enclosed area to the front. Easy access via key box and parking was not a problem right outside the property. Very friendly host, Richard, who sent a very welcoming text to let us know he was there if we needed him. Nice welcoming gifts not just for the adults but for our little fury friends as well. We had a wonderful week and will definitely be returning.

    No designated parking however there are opportunities to park close by, so we didn't find it an issue. Great communication with the owner, just wish we could've stayed longer as we still have lots to explore and see on the Island. We'd love to return!

  • "Fabulous new year break, well located cottage and very helpful host."

    One of the more generously proportioned small cottages we've stayed in for two and two border collies wouldnt want to stay with 4 adults , we dont have kids so cant comment on the sofa bed situation , but be aware that because of the open plan stair case lights downstairs and tv noise do spill upstairs . Host stayed texted on the morning to say it was ready, nice touch. My only gripe but this is the same for most cottages is the lighting downstairs isnt brilliant, cottages tend to cater for a cosy atmosphere not for those of us who like to sit and knit in an evening

    Hi, thank you for the feedback and yes I agree it’s a little too cozy for four adults. I offer it for anyone bringing a/kid(s) that don’t mind camping on a sofa bed in case anyone is struggling to find anywhere local. Just opens a few options for some which may be happy with this. Regarding the lighting, one step ahead, I have a replacement light fitting, but it’s been ever so busy I’ve not had many free weeks to get an electrician in. All sorted now. Appreciate your feedback. Thank you very much for staying. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Menai Cottage."

    It is beautifully appointed throughout. It is cosy and warm and was thoroughly clean on arrival. We took our two dogs and the courtyard at the back is very secure. It is in a lovely location with so much to do within easy reach : walk out of the front door and you can see Snowdonia and the Menai Straights. The owner really does go above and beyond to make your stay special : still enjoying the complimentary sea salt from the local supplier. One minor minor issue (and I’m being picky here because the place is lovely) : I’d recommend the owner getting a couple more pillows.

    Thank you, appreciate the review and good to have the constructive feedback also. Was this for the bed or sofa? There are a few extra on the bed should anyone wish to take them downstairs. But great to know, will add a few shortly. Thank You again for staying and hope to see you again. Property Owner

    Its clean and comfortable and has everything we needed for our "getaway from everything and relax" holiday. The views from the cottage are breathtaking. It's in an ideal spot to explore Anglesey, with lots of woodland walks and nice beaches to explore close by. Nice friendly pub on doorstep and we highly recommend the takeaway in the village. Our Cockapoo, Annie, had a brilliant holiday. The cottage is really well equipped for dogs. Thank you to the owner, Richard. Your advice on places to take Annie and see wildlife too was perfect. Thank you for the thoughtful welcome gifts for us and Annie too.

  • "We loved the cottage and it was lovely and clean and well cared for."

    Our issue was the comfort, in wanting the cottage to sleep four when it’s really only big enough for two, this means the sofa is a sofa bed which is uncomfortable to sit for any time on and the chair is small. TV only very small and although has free view there are no apps so you can not log into own Netflix etc.. using WiFi. If weather is good this isn’t a problem but on wet days it’s nice to get comfy and relax. We would return again and again if the lounge was more comfortable a large sofa and bigger more modern TV ( I don’t mean huge just big enough you don’t have to wear glasses) Some starter fuel for the wood burner would have been nice as this is a feature of the cottage.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I will clarify on the advert that while four adults are of course welcome, people may find the sofa bed more suitable for teenagers/children. I am looking at replacing the TV very soon and although the sofa size is as per the advert and we regrettably had to put upgrades on hold throughout the lockdown period, I can now also look at the style of the sofa bed and if that needs upgrading. There is a fuel starter pack in the lounge and I am sorry if you were not aware of its location. Thank you again for your feedback as I am more than happy to take constructive comments on board to ensure the best experience for guests. Property Owner

    One of the best cottages we have stayed in during out over 10 years of staycations. Walks around the village for an early morning or evening stroll. Close to Bangor, Caernarvon and Newborough with it's dog friendly beach. Co-op is about 6 minutes door to door and there is a small retail outlet in Llanfair PG for souvenirs etc. Hooten's farm shop is a must for good quality meat, jams and chutneys. The cottage is warm and comfortable and ideal for 2 people and a dog. The front garden gives you a stunning view of the mountains of Snowdon. Both back and front gardens get the sun. Cottage would be lovely for Christmas, cooking a dinner in the well equipped, but small kitchen may be a challenge. However with pub opposite (it wasn't open at the time) it could be an alternative option.

    Set in a little village with amazing view's of Snowdonia. Great if you have your dog with you as both the front and back courtyards are enclosed, and sun traps, fab walks down to the beach straight in front of you past the coffee shop and to the right of the cottage down lovely country lanes. I cannot comment about the pub across the road as it was still closed due to covid, but it did look very nice and reasonably priced. There is a farm shop just down the road past the church to the left of the cottage, which has a large range of locally sourced food's and fabulous steaks.There is also a small shop on the main street that stocks most things that you may need, Richard the owner who is very helpful would give you directions to the supermarkets if needed. This is a great base for exploring the beautiful island of Anglesey and its wonderful beaches you cannot go wrong. Thank you to Richard for being a perfect host. Would highly recommend this charming cottage for a relaxing break.
