  • "Accomodation was very nice, comfortable and lovely quiet location."

    Only thing we noticed is there were parts that were not very clean. Handle of fridge door looked like something had been spilt in it, was brown and sticky. A lot of the cupboard doors had little splashes on and dust in the ridges, as if not wiped down regularly. we brought out a large frying pan than looked like it hadn't been washed properly and just put away, same as some cutlery. We just ended up washing everything before we used it. Everything else was fine, just think a bit more care could have been taken in the kitchen to make sure it was all clean, especially in these covid times.

  • "The holiday cottage was in a great location for exploring all that Anglesey has to offer."

    There are plenty of amenities and shops nearby in Menai & Llangefni which is handy. The holiday cottage was clean and comfortable and our 4 year old loved the large garden. The hosts were very helpful with any queries. Would love to stay again in the future.

  • "Certain kitchen essentials were missing."

    No scissors or wooden spoons. We believe there should be larger wine glasses. The double bed had an end at the foot of the bed which is not good for people over six feet tall. Therefore I had to sleep diagonally across the bed which is not good for your partner.

  • "This holiday was very good."

    It is 8 years since we stayed there and it was as comfortable and quiet as it was then. We were able to go out and about and do the things we wanted to. Also, despite what we were told, it doesn't always rain in Wales. We had nice sunny days for 12 out of the 14 days we were there.

    The accommodation has lot's of character, and a very welcoming feel. It was 'just what the Doctor ordered', in a peaceful area, and a very good base for exploring Anglesey.

    He left a tray of Welsh goodies for us on our arrival. He put two Christmas trees up and cut wood for the fire for us. This is the third Christmas we have rented this cottage it is so cosy warm and it's very relaxing being so quiet. It's central for all journeys around North Wales. Always clean and tidy with wonderful comfortable beds. The kitchen is well equipped. The views from the living room are wonderful. We have already looked up the prices for next year. The two dogs are very well behaved and always come to greet you. Thanks again for a lovely Christmas stay. Sue Hipperson - Hertfordshire.
