    Very pleased with accommodation cosy & clean height in bedroom could be an issue for some but we were very happy and suited our needs

  • "Riverside cottage is wonderful."

    We'll catered for. Gift on arrival, robes (great idea).. even the dog was thought of, bowl/towel/toys. Only negative was the height of the bedroom ceiling which is a shame, also more remote than expected, but plus side there's a pub, cafe and shop nearby.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Riverside Cottage."

    Perfect for 2 people. Unfortunately my husband banged his head at least 5 times on the beams in the bedroom (some people just never learn). Thank you for the fizz which we enjoyed on New Years Eve. The bed and bedding was super soft and comfy. We would definitely stay again. One point we did forget to say, we noticed that there was a leak in the lounge over the shelves where the books are. It looks like it has been leaking for some time, I did wipe it down and leave a cloth there.

  • "Cottage is beautiful and fitted out very tastefully."

    The low ceiling in the bedroom is definitely a hazard but you soon develop a stoop when you’ve bumped your head a couple of times! Love the dry stone walls!

  • "Riverside cottage is a wonderful place to stay with only a couple of minor drawbacks."

    Steep stairs to the bedroom, which has a low ceiling . Also the bedroom of the attached cottage is above your living room, which could be a problem if there was a noisy family staying there. On the positive side, we found the cottage to be very comfortable with all the provisions needed for a short break. The garden to the rear is enclosed so perfect if like us you take a dog. We will definitely be booking again. Also great communication with the owner. 10/10 for us

    Bathroom could be updated. But all in all its a lovely little cottage. Village has well stocked shop and a nice pub with great food

  • "Oven and grill had not been cleaned for some time."

    Took a lot of elbow grease to make it fit for use. Sofa had a strong dog smell. On investigation it was clear that the cushions had not been removed there being considerable food waste, in the way of crumbs mostly, and dog hairs which we hoovered and treated with air freshener spray. Bath mat to step onto when leaving the shower would be useful to prevent slippage. Disappointed that there was no recycling provision. On the plus side most of the equipment and appliances were excellent. Facilities in the village, Pub, Cafe and Village shop, were first class.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage was beautiful. Very clean, the bedding was immaculate and there was every thing you needed. We would definitely stay again. There isn't much to do in the village but we drove out each day to explore nearby bays and coves . We had a couple of days just enjoying the sun in the garden. Wonderful holiday, beautiful cottage and very organised and clean

  • "The cottage was authentic and matched its surroundings."

    It clean, fresh and really nicely presented, although the lovely and quirky bedroom isn't one for the tall people amongst us! Perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle.

  • "We had a lovely week staying at Riverside Cottage, it is a lovely cosy place and well-located within easy driving distance of many of Anglesey's fantastic beaches, walks and other attractions."

    My one point to note is that one of the bedrooms for the adjacent Riverside House (another cottage with the same owner) is directly above the living room of Riverside Cottage. Footsteps and the sound of dogs playing/barking in this room were very loud due to no soundproofing in the floorboards/ceiling. Thankfully this was only an issue at the point the neighbouring guests went to bed in an evening and didn't interrupt the enjoyment of our stay too much.

    Bedroom ceiling is a little low but that cant be helped and the TV is sometimes slow to respond to button clicks, even with new batteries, and can become a little frustrating. Overall a very comfy and positive stay :)

    The christmas tree/twig was very sad though and the sofa was very low and uncomfortable for us. Very peaceful location the cottage is beautifully decorated, very clean and cosy. The caravan park was closed so there was no traffic at all, not sure how that would be when the park is open however.

  • "There should be much more emphasis on the height of the bedroom ceiling (or lack of it)."

    As another reviewer noted, if confined spaces are an issue this property should be avoided. At 6' 2" I was unable to stand up in the bedroom and my wife at 5' 2'' had to bend to avoid the beams and sloping roof. A pity about the bedroom, as the rest of the property was excellent. It was spotless, new equipment in the kitchen and comfortable lounge area. The area was very quiet and a short drive to Cemaes Bay (free all day parking at the top car park). Turning right or left from the beach are some lovely walks (one eventually ends up at a National Trust Nature Reserve just behind the power station).

  • "A beautiful little cottage, with everything we needed."

    .. Lovely touch with the radio when we entered...very clean, lovely lounge area. Loved the quaint bedroom, I am small enough not too hit my head, which is pointed out and we are warned about in the description, so no problem there. Very welcoming shop and pub, with a small, home-made food menu, well behaved muts are made very welcome...two minutes walk away..... If any criticism was due, perhaps a little attention to the private garden....the overgrown bush around the table made it difficult to sit out.... A delightful, relaxing 3 nights was had by all....

  • "The cottage was newly refurbished and was clean and modern."

    It was well equipped with some useful extras like dog towels. However I feel that it should be made clear in the particulars that the head height in the bedroom is very limited and is not suitable for tall people or those suffering from claustrophobia!

About the location


Cemaes Bay 1.5 miles; Holyhead 15 miles.

Llanfechell is a small village situated one and a half miles from Cemaes Bay, on the northern tip of Anglesey in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village gets its name from the nearby 12th century Mechell Church, which has been extended over the years and where it is believed that St Mechell is buried. The ancient Parys mountain copper mines are seven miles away, with their lunar-like landscape and the area is popular with geologists and archaeologists due to the rock formations at Mechell Mountain and the several ancient monuments scattered around, reputed to be some of the oldest in the world. Llanfechell is home to a village pub, which serves traditional ale with a warm welcome. Nearby, the pretty seaside village of Cemaes Bay is home to three pubs, a few shops, a natural sheltered harbour and a sandy beach, edged by grassy cliffs and ideal for safe bathing and family fun. The whole of the Isle of Anglesey is renowned for its miles of stunning and varied coastline, offering wonderful walking and cycling opportunities, along with birdwatching, excellent watersports, fishing and many quality golf courses. Anglesey Sea Zoo and a variety of National Trust properties and gardens are all within reach on this beautiful island, while a day trip to Dublin can be enjoyed from nearby Holyhead. A great location offering something for all the family.
