The place had a very homely, comfortable, cared for feel about it and had everything required for our weeks stay. The views are truly amazing and the garden was ideal for our dog to run around in. We were very impressed and will be back of that I am certain. Reviewed by Gerald5.0★Nov 2023 "Another fantastic stay at this beautiful property now counting down until our next stay." Cannot fault the property except for the double mattress in the upstairs bedroom was a bit hard and took a few night to get used too.

It is very well equipped with everything that you need to make your holiday an enjoyable experience. We would definitely stay here again! Reviewed by Andrew5.0★Oct 2022 "Stunning views is the first thing we thought on arrival." The cottage was clean, even upto my OCD standards. The place was very homely, comfortable and well decorated. We chose this cottage because it looked well presented. The kitchen appliances and utensils were well stocked up and in perfect working order. The garden was amazing too sit out in, watching the ships come and go and at night star gazing. Plenty of storage space in the bedrooms for your clothes and stuff. There were books to read, DvD's to watch at night, a cabinet full of various games. Overall,I could live in this house more comfortably than my own house. In fact, I didn't want to leave and my husband had to turf me out, I wanted to claim squatters rights. Needless to say I'm depressed to be back home. THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENTS. the big couch in the living room is uncomfortable and sags at the back. Nobody wanted to sit there. We would of liked to park our car in the garage. Dogs not allowed upstairs and on furniture, impossible task for a pet that is a lap dog and actually sleeps with me in bed. The carpet in the living room is due for a good shampoo. The rug in front of the fire kept curling up and revealing what colour the carpet really is supposed to be. It took us 10 minutes to find the key safe it was that well hidden. Maybe better instruction on the exact location or cut the bush, also I had to fight the spiders guarding the safe before I could retrieve the key. Wifi password is very tricky to read in the handbook. The bedroom window should have a clear sign on to warn people it is a fire exit and should not be opened. Children are not likely to take notice as they don't read the handbook, have curious hands and need a warning in front of their faces. The TV in the living room isn't big enough, it's the only TV in the house and we struggled with the small screen. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and our amazing views. Following your comments we got a company out to shampoo the lounge carpet (we usually do it ourselves). They said the difference in colour is due to sunlight, not dirt. We will therefore replace it when we re-decorate. Property Owner Reviewed by David4.4★Aug 2022 "A lovely place to stay with the most amazing views out of every window ." Equipped with everything you could need and lovely and clean with a lovely welcome pack. I will miss my morning cuppa watching the ferries and the sea on the bench in the garden. On our one bad weather day it was lovely and cosy.The kids loved all the games and toys . So much to do nearby as well . Felt like a home away from home and would definitely come back. Can't imagine many places have such amazing views and such a feeling of calm and peace . It was much needed and we have come home feeling refreshed . Reviewed by Julia5.0★Jul 2022 "We loved the house and wonderful views." Well presented clean and with a well equipped kitchen. My only gripe is that the beds were not comfortable and my mother struggled with her bed on the ground floor and said it needed a new mattress or at least a mattress topper would have made a difference. A shame as everything else about it was great. The mattresses are regularly replaced, so we are sorry that you didn't find them comfortable. We're so pleased that you loved our cottage and the spectacular views and don't worry about the accidental damage - we'll get it sorted, kind regards Property Owner Reviewed by Antonia4.4★Jul 2022 "Our third time at yr orsedd and again it did not disappoint we can see why the owners brought this property." The house is always very clean and welcoming when you arrive with a great welcome pack including cleaning products. Thank you to the owners for sharing this property with us it is becoming a home from home for us every year looking forward to returning. Reviewed by Matthew5.0★May 2022 "Found the cottage very clean and tidy." Every thing we needed was provided. The views of Holyhead harbour are wonderful. Spent a lot of time sitting in the garden watching the ferries . For early May the weather was kind to us . Reviewed by Keith5.0★May 2022 "Really enjoyed our stay, the sea views from the property were stunning!" We explored all the local beaches with our 2 dogs, Caemas Bay was really nice with the little harbour. There are also some really quiet beaches nearby that we had to ourselves which was lovely. The house was immaculately clean, we enjoyed using the real fire each night. We had a couple of meals in the local pub and also had fish and chips in Valley not too far away. We felt so relaxed and would really recommend this property. Reviewed by Amanda5.0★Mar 2022 "This was our third stay at Yr Orsedd in six months; which must count as a strong recommendation in itself." Despite the stormy February 2022 weather, Yr Orsedd was warm and comfy; it has a very homely feel. Yr Orsedd is quite compact; six adults might find it a bit cosy, although you’ll be outside in the lovely garden in the better weather. There are wonderful views across the water to Holyhead. There’s a small shop in the village, and the big supermarkets in Holyhead are about fifteen minutes away. Recommended. Reviewed by Andrew5.0★Feb 2022 "Absolutely wonderful cottage everything catered for the cleanliness was amazing." The views are fabulous. Also the welcome pack was a lovely gesture. We would definitely come back . Reviewed by Jason5.0★Feb 2022 "A lovely holiday cottage beautifully situated providing breathtaking sea views from many of the windows and it’s garden."

Reviewed by Stephanie5.0★Oct 2021 "A cosy and well equipped holiday home." Everything worked well, and great WiFi. The best views in Anglesey over the water to Holyhead. Yr Orsedd was great for two of us with a dog. It would be okay for four, but a bit tight for six adults. We’ve booked to stay again, so recommended. Reviewed by Andrew5.0★Oct 2021 "Part of the garden is not suitable for dogs, we had to close it off." Otherwise beautiful place with stunning views Reviewed by Vanessa4.7★Sep 2021 "Fantastic place to stay." Lovely location. Views from the property were like no other.. beautiful.

Reviewed by Tracy5.0★Aug 2021 "The views from the cottage were amazing, the photos didn't do it justice." Amazing location and beautiful surroundings. Perfect for our family, would definitely recommend. Our only recmendation would be to add blinds to the downstairs windows. We arrived on a very hot and sunny week and so some shade inside would have been great.

Will be back. Reviewed by David5.0★May 2021 "The cottage was as advertised." Fantastic location with great views. The cottage was well equipped and clean. Sykes cottages however are a let down. Originally booked for June but had to move date due to Covid. The September date was advertised at a rate £65 cheaper yet we paid extra compared to June. Not impressed. Reviewed by Andrew5.0★Sep 2020 "The cottage itself was fabulous, very well appointed and presented, clearly used by the owners rather than just a holiday rental." Great location, quiet spot with no near neighbours, but with easy access to the main road and fantastic views of Holy Island. Spacious, well maintained, secure garden for our dog, although fences might be too low for dogs that jump so supervision needed. Highly recommend Yr Orsedd, we loved it. As regards Sykes, we would have appreciated a less cynical and more generous approach when our booking had to be changed due to the coronavirus pandemic. A separate holiday booking, via a well known charity, was also affected but the process could not have been more different. The charity waived the usual rebooking fee and also offset a large proportion of the increased rental incurred when the booking was changed. Sadly there was no such approach with Sykes, it was very much business as usual despite the extreme circumstances. Needless to say we're far more likely to rebook with the charity.

Reviewed by Christine5.0★Oct 2019 "A cottage with spectacular views." I can quite see why the owners purchased this after holidaying here themselves. It is obvious that it is a well loved property. It is the best equipped self catering property we have ever stayed in. Some of the information on local amenities could do with a little updating but if you have internet access you can check for yourself, especially using the WiFi access at the cottage. The small local shop is well stocked with all your basic needs & more. A very comfortable property with a range of entertainments for young & old. We holidayed with 3 generations of our family & we all enjoyed our stay.
