  • "Perhaps a more welcoming approach, not particularly friendly when spoke on phone re arrival just an insistence to put all bedding and mattress covers in black bags when we were leaving."

    This is fair enough in these covid times, however in addition to the 9am check out and 5pm check in and the email from Sykes on the last day of the holiday insisting on the numerous things we needed to do before check out made us felt like we couldn't be trusted with leaving the property as we found it. Despite this the cottage was cozy, although it did have a strong smell of wet dog when we arrived and which seemed to linger. The summer house was nice with amazing views. In our view the cottage would be even better with some decoration to bring it up to more contemporary standards. WiFi would also be a much needed addition in order to book tickets, restaurants etc in the local area as mobile reception could not be relied upon. Car park space was very tight and if I remember rightly said for 3 cars, they must be very small cars if they 3 can fit in the allocated space.

  • "A very enjoyable break on the lovely island of Anglesey in a pretty, quirky cottage perfectly proportioned and very cosy."

    A good base for exploring the area by car or foot - the Wales coastal path is well marked all around the island. The closest town of Beaumaris is charming, with its pier and Castle for interest and relaxation, Jolly's cafe for refreshments and the Red Boat for delicious ice creams. The cottage itself is well equipped and has the addition of a lovely sun room which was a bonus. There is no washing machine which might be a drawback for some families - perhaps utilities could have been included in the sun room instead of a shower? The shop in the village was closed for refurbishment during our stay unfortunately so we had to go further afield. The track up to the cottage is rough, steep and has a drop to one side and the driveway should be negotiated with care. Lovely cottage in a great location with room enough for a small family.

  • "The views were wonderful, photos don't do it justice."

    Can see the sunrise from even the toilet! The garden and summer house were great, so relaxing. Yes the beams were low in the bedrooms and stairs steep but that was part of its charm. Tip: to get to stunning beach walking distance from house - carry on past turn off to house up the road, follow first footpath sign on Right, you go along side of a house, then through a wooded area. The beach is called Traeth Gwyn.

  • "Excellent location."

    Quirky layout - the shower room and toilet being downstairs, through the lounge and kitchen then up a level from the bedrooms. Shower small. The sun room, seperate from the house, was a bonus and did have a larger shower.

  • "Cottage was a delight- the photos do not show it off."

    Views across to Snowdonia stunning- sitting in the sun room watching the evening light play; waking mornings to an expanse of blue... Well kept garden a super relaxing space. Nature reserve at the back totally amazing- hell of a vantage point- butterflies and orchids too. Google maps does not show that beach access on foot from the cottage pretty steep. Would have been very tempted to return, next time for a fortnight to get to more beaches, but post-covid price hikes seem to have made that prohibitive...

    Use directions given on Sykes website. Otherwise lovely cottage great views and easy access to the whole island. The local shop supplies most day to day items and the people in the area were friendly. Nothing better than coming back to a log fire after a day of adventures and our 13 year old dog enjoyed himself too. Highly recommend and would definitely go back.

    -We were very pleasantly surprised at having such good views.The location was better than anticipated, too.Thanks for warnings, but bedroom ceiling heights did not prove a problem, and neither did "steep stairs", as they are quite enclosed making them safer.Cottage was warm & comfortable.Showers were efficient(although drainage proved a tad slow to clear at times). Sunroom is brilliant (especially for watching thunder-storms over Snowdonia!)Turning space for car was a little tight,but it was good to have it so conveniently close on site.

  • "Great little cottage however smaller than it looks on the photos, especially the bedrooms which had low ceilings and you had to duck down."

    Everything was provided for our stay and the summer house was great to sit in at night. The driveway is difficult to manoeuvre as it is a steep slope. (We scratched our car on the wall). Would definitely stay again though as the views were amazing and it is so quiet and peaceful.

  • "Loved the cottage , unfortunately my husband slipped on the gritty slope outside of the gate within half an hour of arriving and sprained his ankle badly."

    Luckily we were able to have variety while unable to walk as we had the cottage and the sunhouse and the pretty garden , we slept in the sunhouse on the convertible settee because my husband couldn’t use the stairs which was another bonus especially as it had its own Loo and shower. The cottage has fantastic views and is very close to Beaumaris. A good selection of DVD’s kept us entertained at nighttime . Lovely and peaceful , all you can hear is nature. Would definately recommend but please be careful on the slope down to the road .

    It is cosy and comfortable although access to the eaves bedrooms would be difficult for some, as would the general lack of head height in the bedrooms .We hope to return next year.

  • "Brilliant location with stunning views great base to explore the island from."

    Older children maybe disappointed as no Wi-fi. Also I know this is an older property but cleaner needs to concentrate more on the cobwebs. Also sapling growing out of kitchen sink. Hard to tell from photos of property the beds are not proper beds with a base unit, basically mattress on the floor, although they were comfy less mobile may find difficult to get up and out of bed. Great place if you love quirky older properties and getting away from it all. Perfect to sit and read in piece and quiet curled up in front of the fire after a great day exploring

  • "Fantastic spot for piece and quiet."

    A very small quiet nature reserve at back of the cottage for early morning walks with the dog only ever met one dog walker once. The sun room is fantastic giving lovely views down to the sea where we also watched the harvest moon rise and a couple of sun rises, gorgeous. The cottage is cosy and comfortable. Limited headroom in the bedrooms so watch your heads clunked mine a couple of times lol. Just a few mins drive to Beumaris where you can anything you need or forgot. Lovely best holiday in a long time and Luna the dog LOVED it.

  • "The cottage was hard to find particularly in the dark when my son and girlfriend arrived, This was however made up for when waking up and seeing the views."

    the lodge was outstanding for the 2 of them and the cottage roomy enough for myself and my other son to sleep and all 4 of us to eat and relax. The gardens were I think outstanding in character with views of the sea and mountains from the front. Through the back gate led to nature reserves and open countryside. Overall a great cottage . The only drawback was I didnt have a large enough pan to do a single meal for all of us. Not a criticism but a suggestion. It is also close enough to snowdonia to get there within 30 minutes.

  • "Loved the location - good for staying on Anglesey or going back to the mainland."

    Headroom in the bedrooms was a bit restricted (and we are not tall). The open fire was a nice feature and was enough to take the chill off in the evenings. The initial driveway up to the cottage is a bit tricky due to a loose, uneven surface and you need to take a run at it to avoid getting wheelspin or stalling. On Thursday we came back to find several bits of dog mess near the front door and were lucky to spot it before it got walked inside. The gardener comes that day and whether they let a dog run loose while they are working I wouldn't like to say. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much and the only thing that might put us off returning was the bedrooms, but that said we could always use the summer house which is well equipped and we didn't really make enough use of.

A quirky and charming semi-detached cottage in a slightly elevated position in the hamlet of Glanrafon, on the outskirts of the village of Llangoed, just three miles from Beaumaris on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.

Enjoying wonderful countryside and sea views, and located just off a country lane and up a private track, this cosy cottage enjoys a peaceful setting and appeals to couples and friends who wish to enjoy the riches on offer in this lovely part of Anglesey.

The cottage has a wealth of character features, such as exposed beams, roof timbers and purlins, with the original part of the cottage dating back some 200 years.

The sitting room is welcoming and cosy and benefits from a warming open fire with a staircase up to the two double bedrooms which are charming with low doorways and sloping ceilings, so please mind your head!
