  • "On arrival everything looked good."

    On entering the cottage we noticed an old and damp smell. We could not put any of our cloths in the drawers because of the damp smell. Later on we had to move the settee only the notice that the back had fungus on and some of the walls and tables also had damp showing. We think that the whole cottage needs a deep clean except for the bathroom which looks like it was new fairly recently. In the kitchen thinks did not get any better. The oven didn’t work, the knobs were dirty and the numbers for heat we’re worn out. The washing machine was really dirty and rusty so we did not use it and the fridge had rust on the door. All the utensils needed to be washed before we could use them. Reading the reviews from years back it must have been so much better. On the good side the garden was really nice with ponds and lawns and lots of seating areas and we were allowed to walk our dog anywhere. The owner was a lovely lady living there but I think it is all a bit much for her now. So sorry that this sounds so bad but it could be a lovely cottage with a good renovation

  • "The cottage is warm and comfortable, well appointed and very clean."

    The gardens surrounding it are a pleasant area to enjoy. The decor is a bit dated but that doesn’t really affect anything. Tricia was very welcoming and pleasant and extremely helpful. We have no complaints regarding the overall experience and would certainly rebook this accommodation and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

  • "Tried without success to contact the owner prior to arrival as instructed by Sykes to arrange key collection, so had to turn up and hope for the best."

    Property smelt awful, like walking into a care home. After a trip to the local Wilko I spent the first hour cleaning but didn’t have much success. Having health issues and limited mobility I was concerned the lack of cleanliness would make my condition worse and so departed after just one night of what should have been a four night stay. Raised my concerns with Sykes and the owner on arrival but received no satisfaction. Promised call backs from Sykes, these never happened. Very disappointing and upsetting as this was a treat from friends to try and lift my spirits.

  • "We booked this on the great garden that was advertised - unfortunately there was dog mess around the gardens and paths from the owners own dog (we did witness this) that was never cleared up."

    Another property that was on the owners property had a dog that actually got through the hedge and wanted to attack our dog or selves (luckily the owner managed to get it back) The cottage is decent but in urgent need of some TLC. There was no matching plates, and what was there were chipped, the cups were old with scratch marks inside etc and the kitchen cupboard floor was worn out and had holes in. All the appliances were very old and worn and rusty. There was no welcome pack to say where the local doctors, vets etc were or any other local facilities. There was only a list of pubs and restaurants. It would not take a great deal of time and money to make the cottage feel more welcoming - along with no dog mess. I have no idea if Sykes will actually publish this - but I would not say that this comes up to the expectations we have of a Sykes listed property as we have been using them for years and normally are more than pleased.

    It is our first holiday since lockdown in March and we are loving every minute as is our cavachon Lexi. The cottage is clean,well equipped and warm and cosy. We had a lovely welcome from the owner and we settled in very quickly. The bath and shower is a bonus as is the use of the owners fishing lake and extensive garden. It has been a real treasure of a find for a holiday in these difficult times and has enabled us to relax and unwind. Definitely be rebooting soon

    The property is very dated and mismatched and would benefit from a refurb to bring it in line with other properties of this price range. The kitchen is very well equipped however wasnt the cleanest, I had to wash a few items before I could use them and the microwave was rusty with peeling paint. The bathroom was okay and the bed was extremely comfortable and we slept really well. There was a lot of dog poo outside on the gravelled paths and we had to be careful where we walked. Overall an okay stay but would not return.

    We were unable to use the electric fire in the lounge, as it was ancient looking and didn't appear safe. The wi.fi was intermittent and the television was so small, we struggled to read any script on the screen. Very disappointed as we visited 24 Rhodewood Saundersfoot in November, and were very pleased with the high standard of that property.

About the location

CAERGEILIOG

Trearddur Bay 5 miles; Rhosneigr 8 miles.

The small village of Caergeiliog is situated close to the wonderfully scenic west coastline on the Isle of Anglesey, between Trearddur Bay and Rhosneigr, both of which are very popular seaside villages. The area is truly beautiful - a great sweep of low grassy coastline indented with rocky coves and fine sandy beaches (European Blue Flag and Green Coast Award). Watersports, bathing, fishing, sailing, windsurfing and plane spotting at RAF Valley are the main activities in the summer months, and golfers will enjoy two excellent 18 hole links golf courses. It's a great place for nature lovers, with renowned birdwatching at the South Stack Lighthouse RSPB Reserve and at Valley Lakes, as well as lots of rock pools and scenic cliff top walks to explore. There are shops, pubs and restaurants in nearby Rhosneigr and Trearddur Bay, plus Holyhead offers a wider range of amenities, including a very good leisure centre, an interesting harbour front, a marina, the world’s second longest breakwater and exciting day trips to Dublin on the fast ferry. A great location with plenty to see and do!
