  • "Lovely cottage and good location."

    We found everything we needed there. The lounge was comfortable and the bed was great. Nice welcome pack of cakes and milk. It was good being able to sit out in the private garden after a day walking. We met the owners who were very nice and helpful. We would stay again. Thankyou.

  • "The Cottage was very cold until we got the oil heaters working more frequently!"

    The woodburner is not for us, (too messy!) and you need work gloves too! No carpets makes it slippy and cold unfortunately. The Owner (decent chap) very kindly put more money in the meter as we were worried about running out of electric! Hot water is good and a great bath. Low doorways and creaky stairs were a pain! Private garden is quite nice but rather overgrown. Beds very very comfy! Parking is very awkward. Nice location though.

  • "Gwenallt was ideally situated to explore the lovely beaches at Aberffraw, Rosneigr and Newborough and on arrival at the property we were greeted by teabag and milk and chocolate cake."

    On moving in at the property we were initally disapointed with the facilities. There firstly was nowhere to store the provisions we had brought with us as there was no room in the kitchenette. Very little worktop space, which was sticky with some residue (which I had to clean firstly). There was clingfilm covering the top of the fridge which was filthy as was the stovetop and cooker hood. There were cobwebs hanging from the ceiling and along the kitchenette cupboards as well as dirty inside. There was a grimy laminated copy of the hob instructions which was stuck down on one side of the worktop. The owners had to come to the rescue when the kettle died and provided us with a replacement. There was a washing machine in the kitchen which seemed a waste of space as there was no washing line outside but only a fold up clothes airer. I was disappointed to find that the bathroom was on the ground floor and unheated (it was freezing cold). This was not advertised in the blurb and so we assumed that it was situated on the first floor. The only form of heating was the multifuel fire which had a back boiler but it was a total waste of time as by the time it was lit in the evenings and hot enough to power the towel rail plus the radiators in each bedroom it was time to retire for the night. The only other form of heating were only oil filled portable radiators. The lounge was nicely furnished with comfortable sofas but we quickly discovered that the plaster was flaking off the lounge walls. There seemed to be a damp window recess in the front double bedroom which was discoloured and the bed there was not as advertised in the blurb. There were dust bunnies in the bedroom. The rear garden was a lovely suntrap during the day and was a wonderful star-gazing site at night. Unfortunately it was not totally secure in that the low rear wall was protected by 2 large wheelie bins, which were removed on Thursday morning, presumably for emptying or for the next door neighbours to use? We had to keep our dog on a lead in the garden for fear he would jump the wall. There were no instructions as to what to do if the bins needed to be placed outside for refuse collecting? We left the property late afternoon on Thursday, 2 nights earlier than planned as the weather had turned extremely cold, with smatterings of sleet/snow and the cottage was too cold for our comfort.

  • "The cottage had everything we needed."

    Very comfortable and lots of gadgets in the kitchen. The tea, cake and a lit fire on arrival was a lovely touch. The secure back garden was ideal for our young dog to play in. The cottage was in an ideal location only a few minutes from Aberffraw or Newborough forest, both of them are fantastic places to take your dog. The only suggestion I can make is to have some type of glove to use when opening the fire door as the handle can get very hot, other than that a very enjoyable holiday, looking to return again next year.

  • "The cottage is not in Malltreath."

    It’s in Hermon where there are no shops, nothing and the nearest facilities are not walkable. The write up leads you believe that the cottage is in Malltreath. I found it misleading. The parking is horrendous and dangerous, there were massive tractors speeding past my car. People speed through the village at way more than 30mph. It does not state in the details that the bathroom is downstairs. This needs to be made clear. The bathroom is well done but I think the shower would have been better with a door rather than a curtain. It sticks to you in the shower and they tend to need replacing regularly. The whole place had cobwebs, peeling plaster and paint, I realise they’re going for the quaint look but it does need attention throughout. The garden is unkempt and the gate through to next door doesn’t close properly. Their garden is open at the back so really not safe for an inquisitive dog. There is no handle for the grill pan nor any oven glove. My husband burnt his thumb and had a huge blister. There were two chipped glasses in the cupboard which need replacing. There were no instructions re bin collection day and whether we needed to put bins out. So we missed bin day. The latch on the main bedroom door doesn’t always catch so if you get up during the night you disturb your partner whilst fiddling with the door. The headboard on the double bed is very wobbly and the fitted sheet tends to pull off easily. The bedside cabinets are very light and when you pull open a drawer the whole thing moves. On the good side we enjoyed the fire and bought more logs and fire lighters. The neighbours are friendly and the lady at the cottage next door but one has beautiful flowers at the front and gave us some plum jam. The weather was good and we enjoyed the island very much especially Newborough beach and forest and Aberffraw. Would I stay again? Probably not. It was cheap but still not worth the money.

  • "We have just had a lovely stay at this cottage."

    The location was fantastic, close to Rhosneigr, Newborough and Aberffraw and not too far from Treaddur and Rhoscolyn which are lovely. The head height on the stairs and bathroom door are small, but we are over 6ft and didnt have too much of an issue. The fire is lovely - definitely a big plus in this cottage, really made it cosy. The garden is nice and gets the sun most of the day. The neighbours (next door but one) are really lovely, kind and helpful. We had a dog and a 3 year old and the cottage was fine for both (safe and secure). Lovely stay overall thank you!

  • "The cottage is very cosy."

    However room for improvement is cleanliness. Although the overall surface was clean it was things like lots of cobwebs and very dusty. The floors were swept clean on our arrival but not sure if they had been mopped. Our socks were black if worn without shoes. The sofas were very uncomfortable. We was out most of the day walking but in every evening and felt very uncomfortable on the sofas. The shower was okay but I think a shower screen would be better than a curtain as water would overflow the shower tray onto the bathroom floor. There was a sign asking to put mats down as floor becomes slippy. However there were no bath mats available so we had to use our own towels to soak up the overflow of water from the shower tray. Although the cottage was cosy, the front room could do with a makeover. The fireplace was very dark with the surrounding being stone, and the inside of the fireplace is painted black to go with the log burner. It darkened the room even more. So we had to have lamps on during day light.

    The cottage has a cosy log burner for the chilly nights and a lovely garden for the sunny days. The garden was so peaceful with the sounds of birds and the nearby sheep. Ceilings are low but my 6'3 husband managed just fine. Signs are up to remind you to mind your head at the bottom of the stairs and bathroom doorway. Well equipped kitchen and lovely views from the window at the top of the stairs.

  • "Cottage was basic and not particularly clean, plenty of dust on both the bedroom floors and in main room and window sills."

    The electric hob was old and 2 of the rings were rusty. We had to wash plates, cutlery and some glasses before using them as they weren't clean. No hairdryer - I presumed there would be one but since returning home, to be fair, I checked the information and it doesn't say there is one - but there ought to be one. We definitely wouldn't stay again.

About the location


Newborough 2 miles; Rhosneigr 8 miles.

The small village of Malltraeth lies in the south west corner of Anglesey, at the head of the long inlet formed by the Cefni Estuary and close to the popular Newborough Forest and Warren sand dunes. Malltraeth Pool and the magnificent sweep of marshes and sand dunes, which stretch south to Llanddwyn Island, are all part of a National Nature Reserve. The whole area is renowned for its birdlife and Malltraeth was once home to the famous wildlife artist Charles F Tunnicliffe. There are wonderful forest and coastal walks from the village, which has a pub, a cafe serving afternoon tea and a chip shop (also selling basic items/newspapers etc). Close by are beautiful beaches at Llanddwyn (reputedly the 4th best in Britain), Aberffraw, and Cable Bay, or head to Rhosneigr, which is renowned for its all year round watersports facilities.
