  • "Great cottage in a very good location."

    Parking a bit tight but I guess not a lot can be done about that and you could park on the road. Would have been great if there had been use of a washing machine

    We updated the kitchen last year to include a dishwasher and removed the washing machine. We are in the process of making a utility room with a washing machine and additional loo but unfortunately this wasn’t finished in time for this season. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.

  • "Lovely place near shops , forest and beach ."

    .only drawback we found was the parking was in a tiny concealed entrance on the main road...very difficult to get in and even worse to get out if the car that has the parking space next to it was there had to actually reverse onto the main road which is illegal .

    The parking isn’t ideal and when we first let out the property didn’t offer it but guests were using the space anyway so we included it in the listing. We have never had to reverse on to the road and have a large car ourselves. So glad you had a good time and enjoyed the location. Property Owner

  • "The property is well maintained, clean, comfortable and well fitted out."

    Shower/bathroom is fab & so is the kitchen - contained everything you need to self cater. It is warm, cosy and perfectly placed for walking in and around Holyhead. Supermarkets & beach/coastal path are 10 minutes walk or less. There is a large wooded country park just along the coast too & various ruins to explore. We had a fabulous time & so did our two hounds - they were made to feel particularly welcome. Excellent communication too from the owner. Happy to rate highly & a fab place to stay.

  • "We had a lovely stay and the cottage provided everything you would need (except for a broom-2 dogs so would have been useful but not an issue)."

    New kitchen is lovely - beds very comfy and an excellent shower. Its a great base for visiting lots of places of interest - which we did. It is only 5 min walk to dog friendly coastal walk beach. The surrounding beaches and coves were easily accessible. Treddhur and Penrhos are lovely as was Breakwater country park and South Stack and Beaumaris (castle) is a must. The weather was surprising very good-bonus! There is a small trading estate within walking distance with Tesco Morrison Aldi Home Bargains New Look Iceland Wilko KFC and petrol. Communication with the owner Karen was excellent and she quickly sorted out 2 very minor issue satisfactory. Great time - would visit again as we didn't get to see/do everything. Thanks

    It is a five minute walk from the coast and five minutes in the car from the beach at Trearddur Bay. We had no problem parking on the road and the owner was in touch to make sure we had everything we needed along with recommendations for restaurants and places to visit.

  • "We spent a week at Glan Y Wern as a family of four, with two tweenagers and our dog in July."

    The space suited us perfectly - it had everything we needed; it is even better than the photos! Inside was modern, clean, comfortable and homely. Outside, the enclosed garden was safe and a good size for our dog. The owner was excellent- good communication throughout - warm and helpful. The local area was great for us - Penrhos beach was a 3 minute walk away and perfect for long dog walks. Trearddur Bay is just a 5 minute drive away with a stunning beach and lots of watersports options. We loved our first trip to Anglesey and Glan y Wern was a great base for us to explore from.

  • "I thought the cottage was lovely and well presented."

    There were supposed to be two of us, and the owner kindly agreed that we could bring our 3 dogs. However, with Covid 19, my friend and her two dogs couldn't come as restrictions on movement were in place, so it was just me and my dog. The cottage was warm and cosy, and I slept like a log as there was no noise. The garden was fully enclosed with stone walls (some cottages I've been to say enclosed, but not really secure and have to take dog out with a lead). The kitchen was well equipped. And a real treat was a bath to soak in.

  • "We had a lovely time at Glan Yr Wern."

    We were a bit anxious about travelling post lockdown but there was plenty of hand sanitizer and the house had been completely cleaned. This house is the best located cottage we have stayed in with Sykes, there are plenty of shops and places to eat nearby as well as supermarkets and it is a good location to explore. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we didn't do any of that, but we went to the beach and the coastal park daily (the coastal park is beautiful) and we played with our daughter in the garden, and it was just what we needed.

    The garden was great for our cockapoo. The cottage was in a great location and we were able to get most places on Anglesey within 30mins in the car. This was our first stay in Wales and we found Anglesey very picturesque and unspoilt which was really refreshing. Holyhead mountain and country park had beautiful views of the coastline and Newborough beach is a must.

  • "We have never explored this part of Anglesey before but it's now our favourite part - we had one of the best holidays ever!"

    It didn't feel like someone else's home we felt so relaxed in fact my mum said we will have to go for 2 weeks next time and even wanted to buy the house! The beaches nearby and parks were amazing. It is an excellent base to explore the whole of Anglesey we really didn't want to come home. The owner Karen has great taste and you can tell she cares and wants you to have a good time.

  • "The cottage was brilliant and the finishing touches made it so welcoming."

    It really was very homely and there wasn't much I would change if it were my own home. Garden was secure and is a great sun trap too. I thought that it may be noisy being on a main road but I was surprised at how quiet it was. The welcome pack (including one for the dog) was really nice. Location was good too with lovely walks, beaches and places of interest nearby. Price was a winner too.

    The house was decorated nicely in the Christmas theme. Plenty of cooking utensils and cookery. The oven was large. Children were happy as Netfix's was available and WiFi was good. Beds were comfortable. Cosy atmosphere throughout the house. 5 minutes walk to the beach and enjoyed a nice 2 hour walk along the beach up to nature reserve and back along the headland with the dog. Many different routes to try without having to take the car. 5 minutes walk to shopping area including supermarkets and fast food. Grateful for the dog feeding bowl and large dog towel that was made available during the stay.

    Loved the decor, it was so tasteful. We were so comfortable, it felt like a home from home. We didn’t want to leave. There was everything we could need and so handy for shops, also only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The enclosed garden was great for our dog. We’re already planning our next visit.

    It’s in a perfect location with a pub and all local amenities within 5 minutes walk. They have put so much time and effort into making this home so welcoming....we certainly didn’t want to have to leave. Being able to take the dogs was an added bonus with the local beach only 5 minutes walk away where we met lots of other doggy friends. The welcome pack was an extra special touch with even one for the dogs. I would highly recommend you staying at Glan Yr Wern as you most certainly won’t be disappointed.

About the location


Trearddur Bay 3 miles.

The bustling town of Holyhead rests on the North West coast of the Isle of Anglesey, the largest town on the island and perhaps known best for being the main ferry port to Ireland. Steeped in history, the town boasts the remains of Roman town walls and forts, medieval burial chambers and stone village foundations. Explore the Breakwater Country Park, a former quarry, which offers designated walks through the grounds. The park is full of interesting wildlife, most notably the seals who visit the Holyhead coast, and outlines the amazing construction of the world's longest breakwater, some 1.8 miles, which today protects the harbour. Visit the colourful marina with its yachts and tall ships, or the town's maritime museum, with its tales of 100 shipwrecks in the vicinity. Day trips to Ireland can be enjoyed easily from here, with Dublin just 90 minutes away on the fast ferry. With spectacular cliff top walks over Holyhead Mountain, golden sandy beaches at the award winning Trearddur Bay and the Snowdonia National Park just a 20 minute drive away, this is a superb holiday location, at any time of the year.
