  • "Lovely, quiet, peaceful cottage with stunning views and it's own private gated driveway and the garden is huge, the dog loved it."

    Every beach/tourist attraction is a straightforward drive, under half an hour away but there is also a local town and smallish beach literally 2 minutes away. The owners left us lovely welcome gifts even treats for the dog and were on hand to help us out with the heating (technophobe here ha) would definitely recommend.

    (And it was pretty good before!) Just some extra little touches. Kitchen is much better laid out. This is perfect for singles/couples/ small families and very pet friendly. It is such an oasis of peace. Will definitely be back.

    The cottage is very clean, great shower and a truly wonderful relaxing garden ideal for pooches! We found the conservatory very very useful and comfortable in all weather's so didn't need any heating due to time of year! The hosts are lovely providing welcome gifts which was greatly appreciated Caemas Bay is beautiful with lots of coastal walking and beach being an ideal base to explore the island! We will definitely return to the cottage and highly recommend it.

  • "Once again, Hafod Cottage proved to be an excellent base for a summer holiday on Anglesey."

    The cottage was comfortable inside, with a good supply of dishes, pans, etc for self catering. The fully enclosed garden was perfect for my dog to entertain himself in, and I spent many happy hours in it too. The only negative point was the damp smell in the bathroom. Some of the guest information could do with updating, because it still shows Covid precautions, and the photos of the property are a bit out of date. A washing up bowl and draining rack would be useful - as a solo traveller I don't normally generate enough dishes to use the dishwasher. Cemaes is a lovely village, which I return to time after time, though I prefer it out of season and quiet. Thank you for another enjoyable holiday.

  • "Very comfortable cottage, our third visit."

    Lovely garden it was a pleasure to sit in and was also enjoyed by our two Springer Spaniels The holiday was also enhanced by the stunning weather. We initially experienced problems with the TV but after reporting the fact a family member arrived to assist. It was good for a short time but then was very intermittent perhaps due to the weather

    Sorry that you had problems with the television. There is nothing wrong with the television, it is a smart television and takes time to load before starting. When my daughter arrived to assist ,the customers were using the dvd player control and not the TV control. The weather on Anglesey often affects the reception and obviously this is out of our control. Property Owner

    The gardens are a delight, full of bird life and amazing views. The location is ideal for investigating the area, with coastal walks accessible direct from Cemaes Bay only 10 minutes away. There is a good general store in the village, can recommend the Fish and Chip shop too. The owners left welcome gifts and were available to deal with any queries. A lovely place!

  • "We really enjoyed our 5 day stay at Hafod Cottage."

    Fresh flowers in the lounge, milk in the fridge and carrot cake which doubled up as my birthday cake whilst we were there were lovely welcoming touches and our rescue dog was very grateful for his complimentary dog treats and the beautiful garden to run safely round in which we all enjoyed with him. The cottage was nice and warm and the lounge was cosy when the log burner was lit. We do cottage breaks a lot and will definitely stay again but as a suggestion there could do with being a larger pan/cooking pot in the kitchen to cook pasta in, some tongs would be useful in the kitchen utensils jar, a decent non-stick frying pan would also be good and in the double bedroom it would be a good idea to have a small disposable de-humidifier in the window (which can be purchased from any supermarket for a few pounds) as we noticed in a morning there was quite a bit of condensation in that room when we woke up which resulted in the window being wet and black appearing on the walls near the ceiling which vanished by the end of the day after the window had been left open. Also quite a lot of condensation drips off the ceiling in the bathroom onto the floor around the loo area as there was no pole left out for us to open the sky-light window to let the steam out after the 3 of us had showered each day.

  • "Overall and really comfortable and lovely stay at this lovely little bungalow."

    It is so lovely and peaceful and to have parking away from the road and gardens to walk around was an added bonus. I do say that for personal preference my husband and I prefer a firmer mattress and a firmer sofa, but we certainly slept very well so job done and that is simpliy our personal preferences mainly due to back issues. The thoughtfuless and kindness of the owner, with the little added touches made this stay even more pleasant. It was a trip down memory lane for me as I was bought up in Cemaes and used to play around the old Mill opposite as a child - boy did that bring back amazing memories. I would definitely highly recommend this bungalow, perfect for a couple or family of 3 and good spaces if you are dog owner. THANK YOU SO MUCH - AN AMAZING HOLIDAY.

  • "This is my second stay at Hafod."

    Really like the location. The bed is still uncomfortable, mattress is way too soft. Would be nice to have a spare sheet and extra towels for 7 days. Since my last visit, the new owners have added nice touches, the furniture has been moved around and feels more homely, the addition of a fridge freezer is a nice touch too, instead of separates. The glass shelf in the bathroom is still not secure, that aside; it's still a cottage I would return to, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Lovely clean cosy cottage."

    Nice to find milk and cake on arrival. Although given directions to the property we drove past it as there was no clear name plate on the gate from the direction we drove. Also the quilt on the bed was very heavy and to warm for a comfortable sleep, but this may be just down to our personal view. However I am sure we will book this cottage again as it was so comfortable.

  • "Set in a nice quiet location, the cottage was very clean and comfortable, with a lovely garden."

    It was nice and secure for larger dogs but the gate could maybe be made more secure by adding some netting to stop a smaller dog getting onto the road. A washing machine would have been a benefit - maybe instead of the dishwasher. Beds and seating were comfortable and the conservatory was ideal for eating and relaxing in. There is plenty of storage space for clothes and food. All in all, it is a lovely place to stay and the two of us, plus a dog, settled in very quickly, which is exactly how to start a good holiday.

  • "This cottage and its lovely garden were ideal for me and my dog."

    It was equipped with everything I needed and the shady areas of the garden were perfect when it was too hot to sit on the beach. The conservatory was extremely hot in the morning, and I know someone else has suggested some shading. My criticisms are restricted to the bathroom, which had a damp smell, despite being clean throughout. The shower had a mind of its own, with the shower head refusing to stay in one place. I think it also needs a rubber mat, as I slipped despite the grab handle. The double bedroom would benefit from a hook on the back of the door, and some wallpaper has come loose. A recycling guide would be useful, since all councils vary, along with a calendar detailing which bin/s to put out when- the household waste bin is only emptied 3 weekly. The owner was quick to deal with a problem, and also arranged to clean and change the bedding at the mid-point of my two weeks' holiday. Treats were left for both me and my dog. Cemaes is a lovely place to stay at the far end of the island, and I am glad I came across Hafod Cottage.

    Thankyou to Mandy for the welcome pack we received and the treats for our dog Tammi. The cottage was well equipped and we enjoyed sitting out on the patio having our breakfast on a couple of days, watching the birds in the lovely garden. We loved waking into the village of Cemaes and bought meat, sausage and bacon from the butchers there which was excellent. Worth a visit too is the little cafe where we had coffee and delicious homemade cake. Tammi was given doggy treats too.

    There are things that could be addressed however. The handle on the bathroom door is practically falling off and the door could do with having a bolt fitted. The cooker works fine but the signage is badly worn. For any dog owners, there aren't walks from the door, it leading onto a road with no pavement. The thing that annoyed my wife and I the most however, was the request to take our 'dog poo' into the village. Not the most dog friendly cottage we've been to.

There are two bedrooms, a double and a single, both with pleasant views of the garden and the far-reaching countryside.

To the outside is a large, enclosed garden with patio and furniture; a great place for children to let off steam as well as enjoying some alfresco dining.

The cottage is just a short walk from the village centre with its selection of shops, pubs and restaurants and has easy access to the lovely sandy beach which is good for young children due to the gently shelving incline and sandy shore.
