  • "Lovely house on a nice quiet estate."

    Spotlessly clean, well equipped and very nicely furnished. 2 mins from the beach, couple of nice pubs, village butchers, cracking chippy, convenience store and a nice restaurant. What more could you want.

  • "The owners kindly contacted us at 8am on the morning of arrival to say that we could book in anytime."

    This was very much appreciated. We also had cause to contact them for advice during our stay (not property related) and they sorted us out quickly and efficiently. Very friendly throughout. We very much enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, well equipped property in a very peaceful location. The dogs loved pottering around in, and exploring the garden. The beautiful weather was a bonus! Thank you.

  • "Fabulous location!"

    !! The house has all that you can need and is well equipped, is modern in its decorations, has good quality bed linens ensuring a great nights sleep, a nice enclosed garden which was great for the dog to roam around in, a secluded hot tub and is set in a secluded cul-de-sac. Friendly owners who were contactable if needed. However, the house requires a little TLC in the painting and decoration sense, floorings which need replacing and the hot tub lid needs repairing. The twinkly lights in the tree in the garden do not work - its the little things, that make it rough round the edges. Sorted out, this house would be perfect, it is a great party pad. We would return as the location is sublime!!!!

    This must be one of the best equipped holiday homes we have stayed in even a dog bowl ! The property was spotlessly clean when we arrived all furnishings are top quality, bed linen was beautiful very comfortable beds and pillows. Lovely enclosed garden ideal for dogs and children with the added bonus of the hot tub. The house is situated close to the beach and local pubs. The Harbour and The Stagg are very dog friendly and do fabulous food, good chip shop just up the Main Street. We will definitely be returning.

    Gorgeous view of bay from front step and upstairs room. Lovely bedding..goosedown quilt so comfy. Safe garden for dogs. Great little village few mins walk away. Loved our 14 day stay. Owners could not have been more helpful but in obtrusive ast the same time. Little gem..cannot recommend enough.

  • "The property is 2 mins from the beach and village shops in a quiet location."

    On arrival it was spotless, with hand sanitiser and hand wash provided. The décor is lovely, and the beds, sofa, chair are all very comfortable. Huge smart tv in the living room with Netflix and sky. Wi-Fi was great with no issues. Kitchen is probably one of the best equipped we've had in a self catering property, literally everything you could need was provided. The pans and cooking trays were all spotless. We only cooked on the first night, as we ate out the rest of the time but its got everything for a full self catering holiday, along with a coffee machine and plenty of cutlery, plates etc. Bedrooms all very comfortable, the downstairs bedroom was ideal for my Mum who has mobility issues due to her knees. The are a few steps outside the front door (which we knew when booking) which were a bit steep for my mum but she managed for the week. Garden is also a good size and fully secure for dogs, so we were able to open the door and let our dog explore without having to worry about her getting out. However, there are couple of things that we feel need attention. There are no external wheelie bins for rubbish or recycling, so we had to leave black bins bags tied up next to the garden shed. The property has an open fire, but no wood or matches provided. Given the rental premium, initial starter logs, kindling, firelighters, matches etc. should be provided and then customers left to purchase anything extra. The property needs a visitor information book/folder about the property and surrounding area for those visitors who may not know the island as well as we do. There were plenty of large bath towels, but only one hand towel provided. Luckily we'd taken a couple with us just in case, but again these are small issues that are easy to resolve for the owners. We would stress that these are not criticisms; they would not stop us from booking the property again, but would increase the value for money experience. Also the key collection details are incorrect and need to be updated, the email stated there is a key safe; however, that is not correct. One of the helpful owners rang us, just as were were arriving to let us know.

  • "This was a very comfortable and airy property."

    Generally the quality of facilities was high and the hot tub was fabulous. The only negative aspect was the cost- it did feel overpriced for the location, however I suspect that was due to increased demand because of the pandemic.

    Thanks for your kind feedback. Delighted you enjoyed the cottage and the quality of our facilities. Owners have very limited input into the pricing of our home. However, we can see that your booking was made reasonably close to the date of arrival which, just like airline travel, can impact cost. Cemaes Bay has always been a popular destination and the pandemic has led to increased visitor traffic. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved our stay in Gwelfor."

    It was a long overdue holiday and luckily the sun shone for the week we were there, because due to lockdown everything apart from shops was still closed. It was a first trip to Cemaes Bay and it was stunning with lots of walks and a beautiful beach from the doorstep. The cottage had everything - great TV set up, which is handy for those evenings inside with young kids in bed. The kitchen was stunning as was everything else really. Not to mention the hot tub, which was a godsend for young kids who had had enough of being dragged out for walks. The owner was also on hand via text for any advice. On the whole, loved it and would love to go back.

The property

This wonderful detached property, thought to be the second highest house in Cemaes Bay, Wales, is located in a small cul-de-sac.

Well-appointed throughout to provide a cosy and comfortable cottage, 32 Gwelfor is the perfect place for a family getaway in this beautiful seaside village.

It offers an extremely warm welcome; the charm is in abundance with a modern Art Deco design.

It starts with a super hallway leading into the sitting room which has plenty of comfortable seating, including a swivel (cuddle) armchair.

The woodburning stove is placed inside an attractive white brick enclosure, ideal for cosy nights in front of the TV.

The lounge has a light decor, with splashes of colourful artwork, cushions and the rug, giving this cottage a wealth of character.

With French doors leading out to the garden.

Step into the spacious open-plan kitchen and dining area, which has kept the minimal decor style with its grey cabinets and units and a white granite worktop.

The room has many modern touches including under counter lighting, and a large breakfast bar, which doubles as the dining table and chairs.

A wonderful place to dine in the evenings with the whole family. Near the front door you will find a lovely ground floor king-size bedroom, with plenty of storage space in the wardrobe and bedside tables.

There is a ground floor WC and wash hand basin.

Upstairs you will find two further king-size bedrooms, with magnificent views over the surrounding rooftops, rolling hills and the distant seaside.

The third bedroom has a lovely set of wall-to-wall built-in wardrobes with the doors doubling as full-length mirrors.

Hidden inside this unit is a TV with Sky.

The first floor is also home to a second dining area with seating for up to four people and sea views.

A great place to pull up one of the barstools and sip on a cocktail whilst taking in the view.

There is a separate family bathroom with fantastic modern fittings, which include a bath and shower over.

Outside has a large patio area with furniture provided, including a luxurious hot tub.

There are three steps leading up to a lawned garden area with plenty of shrubbery surrounding, making it a fairly private, enclosed space and ideal for the kids or pets to run around and play.

There is off-road parking available for two cars and parking in the road is also permitted.

Cemaes Bay is home to a number of local attractions, including Cemlyn Bay and lagoon.

Separated from the bay by a shingle beach is a brackish lagoon, which is fed by a number of small streams, and makes for wonderful sightseeing opportunities.

Cemaes also has a lovely sandy beach.

Cited as a scheduled monument, Porth Wen Brickworks was a Victorian brickworks which produced fire bricks, made from quartzite and was used to line steel-making furnaces.

It has now been abandoned but there are still several buildings present with remains of some of the machinery and makes for a fascinating sight.

32 Gwelfor is an excellent modernised cottage in the heart of Anglesey (3 minutes from the centre of the village) but nestling in the countryside.
