  • "A beautiful little property."

    Spotlessly clean, set in beautiful secluded grounds. It had all the facilities we needed. Very quiet, yet close to everywhere we wanted to see. Our 4 legged family member loved it! A word about the owners. We were there during the petrol shortage. Fiona and her husband went out of their way to help us find petrol on the morning of our departure. We were very grateful. Will definitely be returning at some point.

  • "The cottage has everything you need, a home from home."

    We took our dog and he loved the space around the cottage. The hosts are really friendly and very helpful. It was lovely to walk into the cottage with soft music and candles, very romantic, Fiona also provided a lovely basket of goodies for us on arrival. It only takes 30 mins to get to beaches and some less. I would recommend Church Bay, Llandwyn bay, Borth Wen for beaches. Llangefni is only a short drive for essentials. We ordered our food delivery from Iceland, which made it really easy for us on the day we arrived. The hot tub was excellent for a soak after a day out. In all a very relaxing haven and very romantic stay for those looking for somewhere quiet.

    The owners were friendly and helpful at all times. I have reluctantly deducted one from facilities only because we would have preferred an enclosed shower unit because I have knee problems and the bath did the job but was less convenient. We recommend the venue and will certainly put it on our list for the future.

  • "I stayed by myself with my Springer Spaniel, Oscar, for a week in November and couldn't have been happier!"

    I felt relaxed from the moment I stepped through the door, with the fire lit and music playing. Fiona was a fantastic host, being very helpful both pre-arrival and during the stay. The cottage had absolutely everything I needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay, the kitchen being particularly well equipped. I slept fantastically all week too, the bed was exceptionally comfortable and the location so quiet and peaceful. The cottage is also in a fantastic location for getting out and exploring Anglesey (and more of North Wales), and is a great base for walking (very much appreciated by both myself and Oscar!). Even better was the return to the cottage though, with its hot tub and log burner, just what is needed after a long walk! Little touches were also very much appreciated, the gate at the bottom of the stairs was very welcome to prevent muddy paws from ruining the carpet upstairs, and the hamper of goodies was a very pleasant surprise! The WiFi was also very quick and reliable, capable of holding video calls and streaming TV shows etc. which is a bonus, and the house was always warm, even on cold November nights. I wouldn't hesitate to come back, and look forward to visiting again soon!

    Fiona kept in contact by text regularly to check everything was OK, she would normally greet arrivals but with the new Covid restrictions was unable to but kept everyone safe and used text messages. Asda is only a 10 min drive away as are lots of contryside walks. We did a circular walk through Newborough woods and also an enjoyable walk along Newborough beach up to the island.

  • "Had such a fantastic week at Carreg Rhys for our first wedding anniversary."

    After a very rough few months of you-know-what, a week in Paradwys (Paradise) was exactly what we needed.   The cottage is extremely well equipped (even has a slow cooker), homely, cosy and has stunning views of Snowdonia. From the terrace garden at the back of the farmhouse, you can see over the valley to the coast and Newborough Forest, 360 rolling countryside and the summit of Mount Snowden.   Fiona, Peter and family (and pets) were really welcoming and friendly. They gave us loads of great tips on places to eat and things to do and see in the area. We also found it to be a great spot for journeys to other parts of the island, door to door, it might have taken about 40 minutes to get to South Stack lighthouse and it’s nearby Neolithic village, for example.   We thoroughly enjoyed busy(ish) days out and about, walking on the beaches, coastal paths and through the forest, squirrel and bird spotting, then having long soaks in the hot-tub before a nice, relaxed evening with some good food in front of the log burner. Idyllic place for a break, you’ll be sorry if you don’t book it when you’ve got the chance.

    From the intial phone call to the hamper of treats on arrival, they really are top notch owners and hosts of this little slice of paradise! The cottage is in beautiful surroundings and not far from the stunning Newborough beach. One thing to note... The gorgeous stand alone bath is the only place to shower so if you're 6ft4 like my husband, you will need to adjust to a new, cosy way of showing for the week!

The location is beautiful and everywhere on the island is within easy reach in the car.

    The fire was set, and hot tub freshly heated for our arrival, along with a lovely little hamper of treats. There are some wonderful beaches, walks, activities, and places to eat & drink on the Island, with the cottage being in a great location for getting around the whole island. We travelled to Anglesey a week after Covid lockdown had been lifted, so we were sceptical of what would be open, or safe to do on the Island. Fiona was really helpful telling us a couple of places that had outdoor seating and were her go to spots (Sandy Mount House did not disappoint) And we were pleasantly surprised on hoe many things were open with Covid precautions in place. Couldn't recommend Carreg Rhys enough if you are in search of a super cosy & relaxing stay

    If nothing else Newborough Beach and forest park is a must, £5 to park but it is well worth it, place is kept as natural as possible so no cafe/shop but picnic areas for your own food. Watch the tides if you visit the island as you can easily get cut of, but one of the highlights of our stay. Carreg Rhys is a beautiful home from home, great to come back to a cozy house, when we arrived the owner, Fiona, had put the fire in for us and a basket of goodies. Lovely cozy bed with tv in the bedroom, TV downstairs with log burner,everything you could want in the kitchen, and of course, the hot tub mmmmmm !

    We loved every minute and felt very sad to come home. The cottage with its hot tub was perfect after a long day of walking and sight seeing. Fiona and Peter were lovely and made us feel so very welcome. We miss them too! I particularly enjoyed the coal/log burner in the evenings as this made us feel very relaxed and cosy. The bed was so comfortable and we both slept well and we enjoyed our lay-ins; waking to the sound of silence! (well, perhaps a few sheep in the neighbouring field.) When we arrived, Fiona had made the cottage look perfect! We even had rose petals in the bath! There was a basket full of goodies too in the kitchen for us. In our opinion, the cottage was absolutely amazing and we look forward to returning next year. If you like peace and quiet, then this is the place for you. Where we were situated, every place that we wanted to visit was no more than 30 mins away in the car. The beaches on Anglesey are some of the most beautiful we have seen. Some times when you go on holiday, you do not expect to find somewhere that exceeds your expectations, but Carreg Rhys and Anglesey certainly did that for us and our little dog, Pippa! We even got to see the beautiful Puffins and I can certainly recommend a trip to Conwy. We caught the train from Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (copied and pasted) to Conwy and enjoyed the views of the mountains and amazing scenery. All the pubs and restaurants we visited offered great food and lots of it! Fiona and Peter made our stay that bit more special as they could not do enough for us and were only a call or text away if there was anything that we needed. I hope that all visitors enjoy their stay as much as we did. The cottage and Anglesey are a little gem.

    The owner Fiona had laid on a beautiful welcome hamper and even decorated the cottage with a tasteful hessian “Just Married” banner, a liberal scattering of red rose petals, fresh flowers and a single rose on the bed. As ever here, the welcome from Fiona and Peter was warm and friendly and they obviously put a lot of effort into both running and maintaining the cottage. The hot tub isn’t over chlorinated like some and they do check it regularly. The welcome from Lola (Tibetan terrier) was as effusive as Fiona and she’s always around and up for a fuss (Lola not Fiona) Her partner in crime (Alfie) is also very friendly and Marley the cat is fairly indifferent at first but does like a fuss. The cottage was clean, well prepared and with a stack of logs and coal ready for the log burner it was just perfect. Fiona did offer to have it lit ready which just typifies her attitude and willingness to get everything just right. Privacy is not an issue even though the cottage is attached to the main house and it’s a beautifully quiet location. There are lots of fantastic beaches around and we’d highly recommend Llanddwyn Island which is about 15 minutes away. For us, this was the perfect honeymoon and it’s a great “get away from it all” break. Whilst we are already have the next years holidays booked I can safely say we will be returning here in the future. Thank you Fiona and Peter for your hospitality xx

    This was greatly enhanced by the warm welcome we received from the owners, nothing was too much for them. The generous welcome basket and roaring log fire made a great start to the holiday. The cottage was lovely with a large lounge with dining area overlooking view of garden, kitchen with all amenities you could ask for, large bedroom with a very comfortable king size bed and large bathroom with lovely bath and heated towel rail. There are 2 TVs in the cottage and games, DVDs are provided just in the case the weather is not so good. The views from the cottage grounds were stunning and you had full use of the grounds, great for the exercising the dog. The hot tub is a large one, which is great for a couple as there is plenty of room for both of you to lie in there, relax completely and use heat/jets as you wish. The cottage was within easy reach of many lovely places to visit on Anglesey and less than a hour from Llandudno and Snowdonia. We would definitely stay here again the next time we are in the area.
