    Bed very comfy. Very cute comfortable house. Hot tub ace, felt private in garden. Good ground for dog to do morning quick explore. Hosts friendly and good communication. Roll top Bath quaint but shower attachments harder work. ( no curtain ) Alright if like showering your partner down ( romtantic ) save wetting whole bathroom wet through

  • "In the description of the property there was no mention that there was a 'pop up' campsite on the property, and the fact that campers queued for the one toilet outside Rhys Carreg."

    This rather destroyed the hot tub experience, which was less secluded than photos suggested. Due to Covid, the owner had limited what was provided, and whilst bringing towels isn't difficult, bringing a bath mat seemed extreme. Also, this was the first holiday home for many years that didn't have some holiday basics in the cupboards - salt, foil, cling film etc. There seemed a strange collection of glasses - one pint, one fruit juice, one tumbler - something of everything, but not pairs of things other than champagne flutes and wine glasses. It was lovely to have a dishwasher, but not enough crockery to use it economically ie putting it on every 2-3 days. The lack of a map was also unusual in our experience. The owner was very friendly and asked us if we needed anything but it seemed petty to ask for extra glasses so we made do. Our holiday was still very enjoyable due to the location and weather.

The cottage had absolutely everything I needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay, the kitchen being particularly well equipped.

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!

    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.

    Very peaceful and relaxing surroundings we did not want to come home. Well maintained cottage with everything you could wish for we enjoyed the log burner during evening and getting in to the wonderful comfy bed and cosy bedding. We enjoyed having the hot tub which helped us relax after long walkes around beautiful Anglesey. The owners Fiona and Peter are so lovely they made us feel very welcome and Fiona even baby sat the dog one evening so we could go out for a meal, nicer people you could not wish to meet. All in all it has been a wonderful holiday and we feel very relaxed (even the dog sulked when we got home ). We would highly recommend this and we are definitely going to visit again hopefully next year.

    The friendly owners made us feel welcome and were keen to ensure that we had all we needed during our stay. The cottage is very comfortable, well appointed and has ample car parking space in the grounds of the house. We highly recommend this property and look forward to a return visit.

  • "Carreg Rhys was the perfect location and accommodation for us."

    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.

    Carreg rhys cottage is a little bit of paradise in anglesey, Im not sure where to begin it's surrounded in acres of breath taking countryside but is as equally as beautiful inside, so much attention to detail and love has been put into this cottage by the owners whom are the loveliest people I've ever met. You can't get much better than lighting the candles and sitting in front of the roaring log burning stove, then relaxing in the hot tub ! It really is pure bliss, the cottage is so quaint and cozy and is only made better my its homely fetures and quirky personality. The cottage is so clean and has all the amenities you could possibly want with a comfy bed and big roll top bath, Fiona and pete are lovely down to earth people they can't literally do enough for you and you can tell its from the heart they genuinely want to make your holiday perfect, wish I could just move in to carreg rhys and live here its perfect.

  • "This was our 6th Sykes rental and 2nd time we’ve been to Carreg Rhys, this time returning for our honeymoon."

    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
