  • "Anchorage House is the most perfect and lovingly compiled home from home with Steve and Sandra being the most thoughtful and caring hosts."

    From the little touches to the overall experience I cannot fault their care and attention to detail including a check up to ensure that all was well mid stay. I cannot think of a thing that was missing or out of place. We will be back time and again to their wonderful home which has created calm and peace at a time when we needed it most. Thank you both.

    House is in a great location and had everything we needed- went as a group of 8 ladies and couldn’t have picked a better place. Sykes online account was so easy to pay deposits and payments and the house owner was lovely.

    The view from the balcony of sunsets is breathtaking. The facilities are good too, jacuzzi and sauna. The kitchen is well stocked with plentiful supply of cutlery and plates and glasses. 4 bedrooms which are perfect for 8 people, all in all perfect and the weather was very good to us!!!

    Comfortable, well designed, well equipped house with sauna and spa pool, nice welcome pack of wine, milk, choccy biscuits and rolls and it had an EV charger which was a bonus. Owners very friendly, we'll be back.

  • "Lovely house with beautiful views."

    Well equipped kitchen. Nice and clean. Owners were friendly and helpful. Easy walking distance to a few pubs and restaurants. I found the spa pool a bit too cold to go in (owners had advised it's lukewarm before we arrived so this was expected) but the sauna was great after a quick dip in the sea. I would stay here again.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Anchorage House!"

    Thank you so much, Sandra and Steve, for everything, especially for the very special Christmas Pudding, wine and chocolates and all the other thoughtful touches and luxuries that helped to make our holiday so wonderful. We enjoyed everything about the house: the comfortable beds; how everything was so clean; how we didn’t need to bring any of the essentials ourselves; being able to get in touch if there was anything we were unsure of; the amazing location… We used the sauna and spa pool almost every day and children were so sad to leave and so were we! Thank you so much.

    We loved the super-king bed in the master bedroom which was very comfortable and sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea and watching the sun set. The beach in front is very sheltered and we were able to swim every day even though it was only May. A special thank you to Sandra for her efforts in accommodating my special request.

    Just want to point out one small thing. We couldn’t get the expelair fan in the en-suite to work. Otherwise it was kitted out to a high standard.

    Had we realised the concern we would have explained that the on / off switch on the bathroom wall is for the extractor fan so that when the light pull cord is used the fan is operational .we will enter that instruction in the house manual. Property Owner

  • "A fabulous house in a wonderful location."

    Anchorage House has a great feeling of comfort and space and is very well appointed with everything you could possibly need. It was a treat to be able to use the sauna and spa pool after our long coastal walks. All the amenities of Trearddur Bay are within an easy 15 minute stroll, with so many lovely distractions along the headland - the wild flowers were amazing. The huge open plan kitchen/dining/living room on the upper level was perfect for family living, with splendid views. Sitting on the balcony in the evenings watching the sun set over Porth Diana was magical. Thank you to Sandra and Steve, who were very welcoming and very helpful. Really hope to return in future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would be keen to return.

    The house was more than I expected and it’s beach location was a bonus for our two small grandchildren, they didn’t want to go home! The owners Sandra and Steve were very helpful and contacted us with restaurant suggestions and places to visit. They were easily contactable before and during the visit when I wanted to ask questions. Whilst we were there a sink in the ensuite was slow to empty, when we mentioned this to Steve he took immediate action and sorted it out. We can’t wait to visit again.

  • "Even though the photos show that this property is close to the shoreline, you don't really get it until you stand in the upper floor living space and gaze out of the windows."

    It's truly mesmerising! The owner waiting back for us to greet us personally, even though we had been caught up in Friday evening traffic-what a start to the holiday to have such a friendly face greeting us (along with homemade cake, chocolates and a bottle of wine). The property is amazingly well equipped with all the bedrooms having huge fluffy pillows and bedding to cosy up in. The copious amounts of bathrooms made family and friends living a breeze with plenty of heat and hot water for all. That aside, it didn't stop us jumping in the sauna every day after the long walks up and down the coast path, right on the doorstep. The upper floor open living space is where we spent most of our time (when not outside) and there were plenty of comfortable seating options all around the room. All the utensils you could wish for are in the kitchen if you chose to stay in a cook in the kitchen, but a short walk away is a host of places to eat from ice-creams at the sea-shanty cafe, through lunches to fabulous dinners at the Balck Seal.

  • "Trearddur Bay has to be one of the prettiest bays on Anglesey and Anchorage House, with direct access to a small sandy cove within 30-40 steps from the front door has arguably the best spot in the whole of the bay."

    I just can't imagine a nicer spot than this, made even better by restricted local parking, which means you have almost exclusive use of the beach/cove. Anchorage House itself is well stocked and has plenty of extras like a DVD collection and childrens toys that you don't find in most holiday cottages. The owners were available to show us around the house and give advice on the local sights and places to visit. We stay in a lot of holiday cottages, but I would imagine we'll be regular visits to Anchorage House.

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. Further afield there is the stunning Newborough with its excellent woodland and beach and Beaumaris with its town and castle. A great location with plenty to see and do!
