    “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. ...

    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!

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.

About the location

TREARDDUR BAY

Holyhead 2 miles.

Trearddur Bay is situated on the western shore of Holy Island. It’s truly beautiful - a great sweep of low grassy coastline indented with rocky coves and fine sandy beaches (European Blue Flag). Watersports, bathing, sailing and windsurfing are the main activities in the summer months and golfers will enjoy the excellent Holyhead 18 hole links golf course. It’s a great place for nature lovers with renowned birdwatching at the South Stack Lighthouse RSPB Reserve and lots of rock pools and cliff top walks to explore. There are shops, pubs and restaurants in Trearddur Bay itself and nearby Holyhead offers a wider range of amenities, including a very good leisure centre, an interesting harbour front, a marina, the world’s second longest breakwater and exciting day trips to Dublin on the ferry. The Maritime Museum in Holyhead has an excellent cafe and the beautiful Holyhead Breakwater Country Park has walks for you to enjoy to both South and North Stack. Further afield there is the stunning Red Wharf Bay with its excellent beach and Beaumaris with its town and castle. A great location with plenty to see and do!
