  • "The cottage is well placed to be used as a base but not in a nice area."

    The garden would be nice to use in summer but it's not a home you want to snuggle up in on a cold, wet day as the lounge is very "closed in". No complaints but we wouldn't go back again. Mainly due to the location.

    The cottage is centrally located on the island which many guests have welcomed to explore the whole island. The cottage is also a traditional welsh cottage which in itself is homely and well catered for on the cold winter nights .. open fire fully equipped kitchen. Maybe it’s not for you but we have had many guests that have returned Kind Regards Property Owner

  • "Gina was lovely!"

    The cottage was clean, well-kept, with all the amenities you could need. It was very dog-friendly & loved all the extras provided for them as well & knowing they were safe & secure to explore if the doors were open. Great location, near to so many beautiful dog walks/restaurants/pubs/shops. We loved it there!

  • "Clean spacious dog friendly cottage."

    Well equipped in a convenient area. Lovely large landscaped garden. Some aspects which could be improved - No WiFi in the lounge or upstairs bedroom. Explanation on how to access the TV in the lounge & upstairs bedroom would be useful. Flexible shaving mirror in the upstairs shower room (present mirror not). Upstairs bedroom - spacious but only if you are 3 feet tall!! Should have had a dormer instead of the very low beams. Impossible to position the bed for access without having to bend double without bumping your head (which we did several times!!) Apart from the few negatives, we enjoyed our stay. Thank you Gina & Elaine.

  • "We had a wonderful time at Sleeper Cottage."

    Gina was excellent in her communication with us and always happy to give tips on the local area. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the kitchen cupboards were filled with every utensil you may need. The garden was super safe for our two dogs who loved exploring the different levels. The location is very central to Anglesey, which meant we could explore the wonderful beaches in all directions. Cemaes, Benllech, Red Wharf Bay, Aberffawn, Newborough Forest were all wonderful days out. Then back to the cottage in the evenings to relax in the evening sunshine on the sun-loungers and enjoy a bbq and drinks. Perfect! Would highly recommend. Thank you Gina and Elaine xx

    The house is the best equipped self catering that we've ever stayed in, there was never a moment of wishing you had an item from home to use - it was all there. The garden is absolutely stunning and perfect for relaxing and eating in. It was also entirely dog safe for our 3 Miniature Dachshunds; something we have never managed to find before! Usually they find some way to escape under or over something but not here. It's in a fantastic location to explore all of Anglesey with beaches a short drive away and plenty of dog walks. We will be back, I'm sure!

    The cottage itself was perfect for a family with 2 children and 2 large dogs. There was so much space and everything that we needed was on hand. The garden was out of this world, and more than big enough for us to have a bbq, let the kids play and the dogs roam around without us all on top of each other. We were luck enough to meet one of the owners. Elaine was lovely and couldn’t do enough to make sure that we were comfortable and looked after. Location was ideal for travelling around the island.
