  • "Good property but a little tired in places and to many nic-naks and owners own stuff about."

    Great comfortable beds and a very warm property, so much so that I had to adjust the heating down. Great shower. Felt that the lounge would be to small for 6 adults and no hair dryers so take you own.

  • "Having been forced to work all day we arrived well after dark on a very stormy night."

    Found the property straight away thanks to excellent precise instructions provided by the owner. A word of warning….if you’re arriving after dark take a good torch, you’ll need it. The cottage was nice and warm ready for us and we immediately felt at home. Three large bedrooms with sea views and beds all beautifully made up ready. Had a lovely sleep on our first night with the storm raging outside. Cottage has a huge ,well equipped, family kitchen together with a washer, drier and freezer in the utility room. Lovely cosy living room with an open fire that was put to full use every night. All round the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday whatever the time of year.

  • "Great location, very comfortable (even in November storms) and well-equipped; we found everything we needed and the books, piano and paintings made it a real home from home (my mother especially liked the hand-made appliqué-work curtains featuring South Stack, where her brother used to be a keeper)."

    We will definitely book again if we can.

  • "The description and photos of Carrog were not very interesting or inspiring so we were very pleasantly surprised to find the cottage was much better than our expectations."

    The main bedroom was much bigger than it seemed in the photo, with plenty of cupboard space, and a good view of the beach and out to sea. The kitchen diner was large and one wall was mostly window and patio door looking out to the garden. The sitting room was pleasant and comfortable and the utility room was very useful for all the boots and waterproofs we needed. The garden was also much bigger than the description suggested and quite private. The decor was very pleasant mostly white and blues with watercolours and photos of the local coast.

  • "A really lovely little cottage, fantastically placed between Porth Diana and Trearddur Bay."

    All the amenities you'd expect from a Sykes cottage. Clean and tidy and a great place for a short break with friends or family. The owner is friendly and replies quickly to any queries. Things we loved: The views, the proximity to lovely coastal walks and a pub. My elderly parents liked the easy access everywhere. Only one short flight of steps. The smell of fresh sea air! The open fire, although there was no firewood so do bring your own. The piano in the kitchen, the separate utility room and a well stocked kitchen - enough utensils for baking and cooking ( you may need your own scales though! ) There's even a cricket set in one of the cupboards. The local Spar has everything you need and the huge Tescos, Morrisons etc are a 5 minute drive, as is the good Fish and Chips! Thanks Carrog, maybe we'll be back one day!

  • "The facilities were excellent, as was the location."

    Close to the sea, but not on the main road. Views over the sea. The owner was very helpful. Treaddur is a fascinating place with a friendly population.

    Plenty of nice places to eat. We particularly enjoyed a meal at The White Eagle - Rhoscolyn. One small suggestion- a shaver socket would have been useful.

    The cottage was very clean, spacious and the beds were so comfortable. There was everything we needed as a family of 5, great to have a washing machine and a well equipped kitchen. The out side area was lovely too, a great sun trap for us to enjoy. The location is perfect, so close to the beaches and restaurants. We’ll definitely be back! Thank you for our stay.

  • "A return visit to Carrog and as last year it didn’t disappoint."

    We arrived to a lovely warm cottage, milk in the fridge, flowers on the table - a wonderful welcome to offset storm Hannah howling outside. Carrog is a comfortable cottage retaining all its welsh charm alongside the ‘mod cons’ we’ve all come to expect. Great position on Trearddur Bay. We’ll be back!

  • "We’ve just arrived home from a fantastic winter-break at Carrog."

    We found the house really well equipped with most of the things we needed and the beds were lovely and comfortable. The views from all the bedrooms were breath-taking. Carrog is really conveniently situated for local walks and for travelling to other places around Anglesey. The Seascape pub next door is excellent and there are plenty of other pubs, restaurants and shops quite nearby. Unfortunately, our first and therefore lasting impression was formed from the welcome (or lack of it) we received on our arrival. We arrived at 4pm - the time agreed with the owner and let ourselves in using the key from the security box. The house was freezing! The central heating was timed to come on for 2 hours first thing in the morning and for 2 hours in the evening but as all the radiators had been turned down to minimum, there was no residual heat circulating from the morning’s “ration”. The water had been turned off at the mains and there was no starter pack with which to light the first (which is clearly listed on the Sykes’s website and therefore should have formed part of our contract!). I rang the owner’s representative to ask about this and was told that “Anglesey at this time of the year is often very cold” and “I’ve never been asked for a starter pack for the fire before so I didn’t think it was necessary”. There was no offer to remedy the situation though! Another couple of points: *Whilst I appreciate that there is no obligation on the part of any cottage owner to provide a “Welcome Pack”, this is the only cottage we have ever visited (and we are pretty regular Sykes customers) where there wasn’t even a pint of milk in the fridge. We couldn’t even make ourselves a hot drink to warm us up when we arrived! *A “Housebook” is an invaluable tool for visitors. The ring binder left out at Carrog was scrappy with a first page of very stern instructions for what we were expected to do before leaving the property and a random collection of sheets (some in clipped in plastic wallets and others loosely piled underneath.. It is a great shame that our initial experience was so disappointing because once we’d managed to find somewhere selling coal, wood and matches for the fire and food and drink provisions, we had a super holiday. But please take note owner: First impressions count!

  • "Carrog cottage was lovely and in a fantastic location with large bay one side and lovely smaller, quieter bays on the other."

    Cottage is large, with cosy living room and open fire. Downstairs shower room with room for wetsuits very useful. Decking outside really nice as not much other garden/lawn area. Wouldve been nice to have comfy garden chairs as only wooden picnic bench available. Kitchen large and piano great addition. Upstairs, bedrooms great with wonderful views. Beds very comfy - superking in master! Bathroom upstairs small but adequate. House full of individual touches. Handmade curtains and nice artwork dotted around, very homely. Pub at bottom of drive was nice and no noise heard at night. Treaddur bay very beautiful, with a few pubs and small spar, but not a lot else, so nowhere to escape if weather bad. Large supermarkets and shops about 5 mins drive away. Great for splashing about in the sea and walking though. Overall had a lovely time and would recommend Carrog as a place to stay. Thanks.

    We were originally looking at going abroad for the half term and so glad we didn't, the weather was better here! The house is in a great location, 3 minutes walk from the main beach (2 smaller beaches on the door step and a gorgeous view of one from the bedroom window). The house was lovely and clean and had everything you could need. Would love to stay here again. Thank you xx

The property

This desirable seaside cottage is situated on the coastal headland of Trearddur Bay, near to a popular pub/bistro, and close to Porth Diana Beach, on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.

Ideally located to enjoy the abundance of coastal water sports in the area, this superb, detached cottage is tucked away along a private drive to offer peace and tranquillity which is only interrupted by the sound of seagulls and breaking waves on the nearby beach.

Accessed up a short sloping path and four steps, the property opens into a welcoming sitting room with a warming open fire, perfect for those out of season breaks and cooler evenings after a windswept coastal walk.

The fitted kitchen with dining area is a superb social room and offers feature radiators and an upright piano, ideal for entertaining friends and family.

With views out over decking onto lawns, this room draws you out into the garden to enjoy summer sunshine late into the afternoon.

A ground floor shower room has a cleverly designed drying area for wetsuits and sandy bathing costumes, allowing the kids to shower off after an exciting day on one of the many nearby beaches.

Upstairs the bedrooms all boast sea views, with a choice of two king-size rooms and a twin room along with a second family bathroom.

The gardens are private and secluded and a secret garden provides a quiet area to retreat with a good book sheltered from any breeze.

The sandy beach at Porth Diana can be reached in a two minute walk and offers slipway launching for dinghies and canoes at the far end, with sheltered moorings in the inlet.

Porth Castell beach is slightly further along the coast but equally beautiful and sheltered, whilst the main beach of Trearddur Bay is ever popular with families due to its Blue Flag status.

This charming holiday cottage is classically styled throughout in an appealing coast and seaside theme and will leave you with fantastic memories of your holiday and ready to plan your return stay.
