    Fantastic location 2 mins walk to the sea lobster pot restaurant next door plus Wavecrest cafe 200 yards with lovely owners and fabulous home cooked food and great atmosphere only 20 mins drive to Tesco. Morrisons etc . definitely recommend.

  • "Wow, what a lovely cottage and location."

    The cottage was absolutely delightful with everything we needed. There was lots of room and a new kitchen had obviously been installed, to a high standard, since some of the previous reviews had been written. We had a day of very strong winds and torrential rain so just had to stay in. It is well decorated and really pleasant to spend the day inside. The beds are really comfortable and both bathrooms excellent. It makes a change to really have gardens which are totally dog proof. The owners have gone a long way to ensure even the very small dog with us couldn’t escape! The location is superb with the beach literally minutes away, albeit a steep walk down, just take your time. The views from the top are incredible and there are lots of walks, including the coastal path covering the whole island, for the more mobile. The Wavecrest cafe certainly lives up to it’s reviews and is well worth visiting more than once! The rest of the island is easy to explore and the large supermarkets are only 20 mins drive away. Highly recommend, hope to return.

  • "This is a beautiful bungalow and personally the pictures dont do it justice."

    I think up to date photos are needed as the bungalow has been decorated with a new kitchen installed. It had everything you needed . Upon arrival a small carton of milk with teas, sugar coffee sachets, packets of biscuits and a bottle of white wine which i thought was a lovely touch . The garden area is lovely and secure for the dogs, we pulled up on the drive and let the dogs out after a long drive but as soon as you enter to the right it was abit like a swamp with the rain and all the bungalow except the kitchen is grey carpet so found it easier to use the back door and close the kitchen doors untill the dogs were clean and dry . I did see from the double ensuite out the window a caravan on the land behind with a security camera , i felt this was close to the property and was facing direct so i kept the blinds shut . Perfect location , the bay was stunning , lots of rock pools , the sun set was outstanding from the beach . Lovely coastal paths and cafe 2 mins walk away . The lobster pot was lovely. Highly recommended

  • "The bungalow was well prepared for our arrival."

    All beds were made and towels were provided .We had asked for a high chair and travel cot. Both were available on arrival. The high chair was excellent, praised by the parents and the 10 month old user. The kitchen was very well equipped and all appliances worked well. Both bathrooms were of very good quality. Hot water was readily available. We felt that both bathrooms would have benefitted from extractor fans. The living room was spacious but we felt that the settees were rather uncomfortable. Overall an excellent location and well equipped bungalow.

    The garden is enclosed with lovely solid wooden benches and chairs around a large table. Beautiful plants and trees with lots of wild birds visiting. We spent lots of time in the garden with our dogs as the weather was so beautiful. Bathrooms are both modern but just a shame the en suite wet room is accessed by quite a big step down from the main bedroom.

    Would love to visit in the summer when there are more facilities available. Couldn’t fault anything, although coat hangers in the wardrobe would have been helpful ! Lovely property and would have vacuumed through on leaving but no cleaner available. No complaints at all, loved the visit to church bay again after many years as did my companions.

  • "This is a lovely bungalow in a beautiful setting so close to the beach at Church Bay."

    The facilities are excellent and the property is well appointed and spacious with 3 good sized bedrooms. The welcome bottle of wine was a nice touch. We had a problem with the CH boiler and it was fixed straight away. Great service. I would ask that the following comment is not included in the published feedback and is something for Tristan and Nia to consider. The ensuite bathroom off the main bedroom doesn't have any ventilation nor an opening window. Everywhere was dripping after taking a shower. I suggest that you install an extractor fan to remove the damp air.

  • "The property is in a great position and the facilities are very good ."

    The property was very clean and tidy . Church Bay is a lovely sheltered beach and great for kids A large retail park is a short 15 minute drive away if you need supplies . It did advertise a washer/drier for the property but there was only a washer . Had an issue with the tv in accessing channels which the owner did attend but the problem persisted but it was not a big problem. My wife didn't bring a hair drier because usually properties of this standard usually have one unfortunately there was none .The little covered seating area at the top of the garden is lovely to sit in the evening but the bush in front of it needs trimming down as it obscures the sunlight. These are all minor things and did not spoil what was a lovely stay in a great property in a great location .Will definitely be coming back !

  • "We were very grateful to be able to move to Bwythn Y Bae when the heating and hot water in our original holiday cottage stopped working."

    The property is clean, spacious and warm. It offers wonderful access to the beach and coast path. Phone reception is poor, but excellent WiFi helps to make up for this. There is only one bathroom, which needs updating, and no separate toilet. The kitchen is spacious, and has all the usual white-goods, but is poorly equipped for aspiring cooks. We know the owners have plans to improve the cottage, and we’re sure it’ll be a great stay.

    A good size for 6 adults. Clean and well looked after. The secured garden was great for our dogs. Not luxury but very much a home from home. Smart TV was great on those wet days when we couldn't go out. We liked it so much we have booked for next year.

  • "Had a lovely comfortable break with my family."

    Look forward to booking again in the near future. The weather was a little unkind (wind, rain everyday) but that didn’t stop us walking down the road to Church Bay. Great beach to relax on or just walk the dog. Ideal place to stay and visit the wonderful seaside towns around Anglesey. Don’t forget to book the Lobster Pot just down the lane from your holiday home.

    Whilst we did not meet the hosts, we would like to thank them for such a beautiful holiday home. We visited all our favourite locations again whilst there and the weather was amazing. The only disappointment was not being able to eat at the lobster pot, because they are fully booked until the October, which would have been nice as we were on our honeymoon. We left the property as we found when we arrived clean and tidy and we shall be back.

  • "The standard of cleanliness, particularly in the bathroom, was not up to great."

    There was black mould on some of the grout which can easily be scrubbed off - I managed to scratch some of with my nail very easily. The inside of the bath was clean but the corners where the bath meets the wall and the top edge of the bath panel were thick with dust. The bath mat had some black mould on it. The overflow in the sink is black. The water pressure is poor. The toilet is difficult to flush and the extractor fan in the bathroom does not work. The oven thermometer regulator does not work efficiently if at all. We see this has been previously reported in June but still not repaired in time for our stay in August. We were 6 adults and we do not feel the house really suits 6 adults. May be 4 adults and 2 children maximum. We knew only 1 toilet was offered when we booked and that it was in the only bathroom however, we really do believe there is scope to provide at least an additional toilet if not an en suite. The kitchen has enough crockery and cutlery for one meal serving so you have to wash up or use the dishwasher after every meal. Minimal cooking utensils and knives are provided. It really could be made so much more welcoming and better supplied. When we arrived a lady was leaving through the front door and darted around the back instead of explaining why she was there. We followed to see who she was but she had gone into the field behind the house. She had left the back gate open and there was a coat and food in a bag hanging off it. There was gentleman operating out of the back of the garage (attached to the property) I asked him who the items belonged to as I needed to close the gate to stop our dogs escaping and I received a very gruff response telling me not to throw it on the floor which I had no intention of doing. The house is directly opposite a camp site across the lane, although it was generally quiet. Behind the house is some kind of industrial lorry/storage area. Some of the garden has been fenced off to provide static caravan accommodation which is either booked independently or can be booked by whoever is in the house. Garden furniture was a bench in a garden hut and pub garden table/bench. Nowhere near sufficient for 6 people no matter what age. No garden brolly provided that we could find. Overall, this house is in a good location for beach access however, we felt overpriced, basic, not clean enough and very understocked in the kitchen.

    Thank you for your feedback. This is our first season with this accommodation and we value your feedback so that we can improve our guests' stay. We take on board your comments regarding the bathroom and as stated in our welcome pack, we intend to refurbish at the end of the season. Since your stay, I have added further crockery and utensils to the kitchen and have arranged for the oven to be fixed again. Additional garden furniture has eventually arrived, which had been ordered for some time, but unfortunately due to a problem with the supplier and delivery, had not arrived in time for your stay. As a pet friendly property, we asked politely that you respected the garden and cleared after your dogs by making use of the poo bags supplied. It was most disappointing and disrespectful that you failed to do so. Despite the aforementioned issues we hope that your stay at Church Bay was enjoyable, a particularly sought after location in Anglesey. Perhaps it would have been more constructive to have raised any issues during your stay and thus allowed us to rectify and resolve where possible. Property Owner

From here, make you way through to the kitchen where you will find an electric oven and hob and a microwave where you can whip up delicious meals throughout your stay to be enjoyed at the dining room table as you catch up on the day with your loved ones, or perhaps, enjoy your morning cup of tea at the breakfast bar as you wait for the rest of the group to rise.

As the evening grows darker, venture to the bedrooms to rest your head before another busy day of exploring your surroundings; the bungalow hosts three bedrooms including a king-size bedroom, a twin with a zip/link feature, which can be made up into a super-king-size on request for a flexible sleeping arrangement, plus another twin bedroom, perfect for all types of groups.

After a long day of discovering the local area, unwind with a good book after a nice hot shower; the bathroom hosts a double shower, a basin and a WC, so the group can prepare for another action-packed day of exploring.

Take advantage of the outdoor space during your visit; the garden is the ideal place for savouring a glass of wine in the last of the summer sun, or even enjoying breakfast and a coffee on crisp spring mornings while your four-legged friends run off their extra energy on the lawn.

If you don't fancy cooking one afternoon, head out to Wavecrest Café for a light bite to keep you going through your busy day, or perhaps enjoy some fresh and local seafood at the Lobster Pot Restaurant.

Located just off the mainland is the South Stack Lighthouse, boasting spectacular views from the northwest tip of Anglesey.

Venturing further afield you will find numerous attractions such as the Cadw Heritage site of Caer y Twr, Iron Age ruins situated at the summit of Holyhead Mountain, where you can gaze out over the vast sea from this fantastic elevated position.

There are plenty of walking and cycling routes in this wonderful area, you can find many from the doorstep of the property or head out to the Holyhead Breakwater Country Park to stroll along the sweeping coastlines, enjoy a spot of fishing, and discover the abundance of local wildlife before stopping for lunch in the café.

Spend an afternoon at the Anglesey Model Village, resting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so you can enjoy the miniature Anglesey while embracing the magnificent scenery.

Nearer to your home away from home for the trip you will find Porth Swtan within walking distance, where you can spend the day paddling in the sea, sunbathing and building sandcastles, before heading back to your home from home.

Whatever the weather, Bwthyn Y Bae is a delightful base for your next holiday to North Wales.
