  • "We had a thoroughly amazing week in North Wales and loved staying at Gwel y Rhos."

    The cottage was immaculately clean and well presented. It was superbly equipped with just about everything you could imagine you could ever need. The WiFi was great too so our teenagers were kept happy! The location was perfect. A short drive over the bridge to Snowdonia National Park, as well having the most amazing beach and forest right on the doorstep for walks. Our dog has literally never looked happier! There is an amazing farm shop just down the road and the fish and chip shop in Newborough is ace. Highly recommend takeaway from there one night (and its only a 2 minute drive down the road!) I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone thinking of visiting/booking. We will definitely be coming back for more soon!

  • "Good cottage with comfortable beds and beautiful bathrooms."

    Well equipped kitchen and we appreciated the clean cosy throws for the three sofas in the living room. Very clean throughout; the bedlinen and towels were immaculate. The only slight disappointment was that despite three lamps and many lights in the ceiling the main living space was dark. I guess it's brighter in the summer!

  • "The cottage location was fantastic and the cottage itself lovely but needed some tlc."

    The cleaning company have let the cottage down as there were a number of cobwebs hanging from light fittings and cupboards and mould in the shower tray in the end suite. Also there were a significant number of light bulbs out, the single mattresses need replacing and the cushions on the sofa need re-padding. The high chair was also disgusting and needed to be cleaned before use, as did the washing machine which was full of dog hair. Such a shame because it was a lovely place.

  • "My experience of dealing with Sykes was not the best."

    I originally made the booking (for July 2020) in early 2020, to go away with my 85 year old mum and other family members, but by June 2020, as the Welsh Covid rules were unclear, and she was anxious due to the uncertainty, we had to move the booking to July this year. I was charged a fee which I considered unacceptable in the circumstances. To make this change there was a ridiculous amount of waiting time to speak to someone too; this happened again this year when I had to speak to an operator to query payment details. Regarding the actual barn, the description does not indicate that it is on a site very close to other accommodation, and that the back garden is overlooked by children’s play equipment in the adjacent garden. Also, we were upset to discover that, as well as the 5 steps up to the patio in front of the house (with handrail,) which we were aware of, there were another 3 steps up to the door, (without handrail.) This was not on the description. My mother needs a push along walking aid, so this was not ideal at all. The description needs to be changed. On the plus side, when the shower rail above the bath fell off, the response from Sykes was immediate; they passed this to Sue the owner and she sorted the problem out the next day. Thank you. Overall a beautiful barn in a peaceful, rural setting, and we enjoyed our stay. Just would appreciate a more honest description of the site.

  • "The bungalow was a very good house to stay with a four year old."

    It was spacious and not cluttered with ornaments etc. The kitchen /main room was large and meant everyone could be together when cooking . The bedrooms were very comfortable. The house was near the sea at the beautiful Newborough beach. Lovely sand, great views of Snowdonia and great walks in the pine woods next to the beach.

  • "Cottage was as pictured and described."

    Really quiet location close to Newborough Beach. So much space, high standard of fittings such as bathrooms and comfy beds. Everything we needed for a perfect week in Anglesey (helped by great weather).

  • "We had a fabulous week at the cottage."

    The location was perfect and the setting was very quiet just what we needed!!! Very well equipped kitchen and dining facilities. If I had to pick a negative the beds were very firm just not to our liking really and the water pressure in the showers and bath was not very good but apart from that it was perfect. Would highly recommend.

  • "Heating for hot water not turned on."

    Only two logs and no kindling to get the fire started. There was a box of matches but it was empty. No cleaning cloths or sponges to wipe down surfaces. There was only four nesspresso pods, no cafeteria. The general waste bins outside the cottage were zip tide so we couldn’t use them. The cushions for outside seating were locked away, again couldn’t access them. My husband felt that there should be some form of contact when we arrived, as we have experienced at the other cottages on the island. He missed the personal touch. Despite all this we would use the cottage again, just go more prepared ourselves. It is a nice spacious cottage and very comfortable.

  • "Beautiful property in a lovely, quiet location."

    Ideal base to explore wonderful Anglesey. Would definitely rebook. Just one thing to note, the directions mention 4 miles once on the final road when in fact it is 8 miles. Apart from that all was fantastic!

    We agree with previous feedback that it would be useful to have a gate at the top of the steps.

  • "We loved the cottage it was very clean and well equipped."

    Because we have a dog it would have been very useful to have a gate on the front patio. But apart from this everything was very good.

About the location


Bangor 9 miles.

The small village of Newborough (Welsh spelling: Niwbwrch) lies on the edge of forests and dunes at the south west corner of Anglesey. Close by is Llanddwyn Bay, renowned as one of the finest beaches in Britain, ideal for swimming, canoeing, beachcombing and birdwatching or just relaxing! Behind the beach, the 1500 acre sand dune system of Newborough Warren is home to skylarks, meadow pipits and oyster catchers as well as toads and lizards and is protected as a National Nature Reserve. The Tan y Foel horse riding centre is within 3 miles of the village centre and Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel Farm and the Anglesey Sea Salt are only a short drive away and make a fun day out for the whole family. Nearby Aberffraw is the home of the Anglesey racing track and will offer an exciting day.
