  • "The toilet seat fell off every time it was used - it is poor quality and dangerous."

    When arriving we needed to let the dog into the garden - it was dark and I opened the patio doors which had a sofa in-front of the left door (which hid the warning sign of a sheer drop) thank god the dog went out before I did as he dropped a good 6ft into bushes beneath the patio doors - it could have been far worse if I had stepped out! I held onto the lead as he dangled be north until my husband ran in to rescue him! Yes it does state in the manual that it’s a sheer drop but when you first arrive in the dark it’s stupid to put a sofa in-front if the warning sign at the bottom of the glass door! This is sold as a premium property- the cottage is lovely but it needs a bit of TLC to fix the drips in the conservatory and the dodgy toilet seat. And the driveway up needs to have the leaves removed as thy make it slippy under the car making parking stressful as the car slid on the leaves.

  • "Lovely stay just wanted to say the toilet seat upstairs kept coming off but we left it back on and the Hot tub lid was open on one side when we arrived so were too many leaves in there to comfortably use it."

    We also smashed the bumper on our van as we got stuck on the drive. Im a holiday let owner myself so saying these as feedback to assist. Looking at previous reviews its probably worth addressing the parking. Lovely character family house, thankyou for sharing it.

  • "Delightful house with incredible views of the Menai Straits looking over to Snowdonia."

    Well equipped throughout. Comfortable beds in well proportioned rooms. Spacious family bathroom with abundance of hot water and additional toilet downstairs. Kitchen also a good size with plenty of crockery glassware etc and double oven, slow cooker. Separate utility with washer and dryer. Be aware that young children will need to be closely watched. The house is on a steep slope and therefore the gardens are accessed by some steep steps from the terrace. The driveway also has a couple of hairpin bends off the main road which are manageable with care even in a large car. We had a 7 seater people carrier that was fine. The hot tub is well maintained and fantastic to relax in and enjoy the view. A memorable place to stay.

  • "This was a great house and we had a fantastic week."

    Lots of space for a family of five children with three teenagers. I was disappointed that the garden is not direct beach access as stated - it would be better to take this out of the write up. The driveway was a nightmare with two cars, I would hate to be there with anymore or in fact in the winter months. That's the only thing that would make me not book again.

  • "Incredible & amazing."

    As many will and have said, the views are incredible. We were lucky, weather wise, in July to have an amazing week here. The house was well equipped and we managed the 5 of us with only 1 bathroom so don't let 1 bathroom put you off booking this fabulous spot. The driveway and parking was a little alarming at first given the 2 sports cars we brought but I feel this is covered in previous feedback. I would, if you don't know the area, read the owners book provided as we found Newborough beach through that and spent most days on the beach with the dog. When we were in the house, we spent most of the time sitting in the conservatory with a glass of wine and watching the world go by. Would definitely recommend 10/10.

  • "The photos do not do this property justice, it is breathtaking!"

    We were a group of 10 and had everything you could want and need, and everyone commented on how comfy the beds were. However, something needs to be done about the driveway. It is dangerous and needs bollards along the sides up the very steep hill. It could probably do with resurfacing as the final bend at the top of the drive by the property has a big chunk missing and it could do with mirrors adding to the entrance of the driveway or across the road. One guest we had with us got stuck on the final bend at the top of the house and needed a recovery vehicle to come and winch them off which was not the start we wanted to our break as it was incredibly stressful! Then when we came to leave (after a night of rain) it was incredibly slippy and caused serious anxiety for everyone driving the cars off which is not what you want after a lovely relaxing break. If something is done about the driveway, it really is the perfect property.

  • "The property is fantastic in all ways."

    We had a group of 9 and there was plenty of space downstairs, with room for relaxing and dining together. Bedrooms were really comfortable with fantastic views across Menai from 3 of the bedrooms, the conservatory, living area and the patio/hot tub area. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to visit Anglesey and North Wales: a sure fire 5 star stay!

    Thank you so much for the most wonderful feedback and your full score of 100/100, it means the world to us as a small business. We cant wait to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "House was beautiful, kitchen slightly worn, but that’s understandable."

    Two complaints, there were lots of spiders, my son is terrified. His bedroom was worse!! These spiders should be removed when cleaning. These are not. There was lots of cobwebs, the cleaner clearly likes spiders as the house was covered. We appreciate its rural, but we live rurally too and we clean our home, so no spiders reside. Needs a good clean!! Secondly, bin the games, these are incomplete and broken. It’s frustrating when your kids want to play game of life, and there are missing pieces. All games were unfit and unusable. Even the PlayStation!! It was a joke tbh especially for £600 + a night!!!

    Thank you for your kind comments on the house and your overall score of 75% for your stay at Afallon. We have been in touch with our cleaners and they have assured us they will deep clean the spiders away! If only you had let us know, we could have sorted it for you at the time. Thanks also for letting us know about the games, we had no idea that bits were missing, we have ordered some new ones to replace them. We have also checked the play station and it is working wonderfully so apologies it wasn’t working for you on your stay. We hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Firstly thank you so very much for allowing us to use your beautiful home."

    Waking up to the most spectacular views, the use of the beautiful hot tub and the house was so well presented and comfortable. To name a few there were lots of welcomed extras as well, cook books, music system, PlayStation, Netflix’s, crabbing lines, bucket and spades and toys for the kids. We forget teabags but found a bowl full (lifesaver) and even dishwasher tablets, every little detail has been thought about. Beds/bedrooms were extremely comfortable and the fact our lovely cockapoo was welcome was the icing on the cake. He adored the garden and loved roaming around. The only downside was it wasn’t long enough a stay, our children were really sad to leave and we were too. 5 stars to Afallon and we would recommend to all friends and family.

  • "Fantastic house which was warm and welcoming when we arrived."

    The weekend was lovely. The only negatives were that the wifi was pretty patchy and the driveway was quite steep. When I rang a taxi for the following day they refused to come up to the drive and didn't offer any alternative. We ended up driving, which wasn't part of the plan but we were soon back at the house for the rest of the evening. We didn't drink the wine left by the guest or the Bara Brith as we bought so much food we had tons to take away. A lovely gesture though :)

    Thank you for such lovely feedback and for your 100% score, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The good news is that Fibre Broadband directly to the home is now available in our location so is being installed in March which will ensure a stable WIFI connection going forward. To be elevated to such a beautiful position with such a stunning view, the driveway does need to elevate but we have never had any issues or a taxi refusing to come up the drive before so it is such a shame that you had to experience this. Great news you have been in touch to return to the property too so we cant wait to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was lovely but as per my complaint, that was closed without being dealt with, the hot tub wasn’t warm enough to be able to use it on the Friday night."

    This isn’t acceptable when paying a premium for a cottage with a hot tub but only being able to use it one night out of the two night stay.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. The hot tub is emptied, cleaned and refilled after every booking to ensure everything is clean and safe for your stay. Once filled the hot tub can take up to 12 hours to get to the desired temperature which means that on occasion, it may not be at the full desired temperature on the first night of your stay. This is only done for your safety. We hope to welcome you again soon. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed the holiday home, the views were amazing and all rooms beautifully decorated."

    The minor issues we had were dealt with by the property managers and host in a very polite and friendly manner. They requested feedback and seem to sincerely care about providing a nice holiday home for their guests. The area was also great with lots of things to do. All in all a great holiday.

    Thank you for your extremely positive feedback, it is so kind of you. Such a shame that the high winds caused issues with the WIFI for you but pleased we could rectify it for you as quickly as we did. We cant wait for Fibre Broadband to come to the area in March 2022 to avoid any issues like this happening again. Thank you once again. Property Owner

  • "The cleanliness of the place could be better, it wasn't unclean by any means, but for the price you pay it was expected to be cleaner."

    There are also a few areas which could be improved or included such as the back door being slightly out of line and the kitchen was lacking in the basics such as oils to cook. There is also no supply of charcoal or wood for the fire. Again, not a big issue, but you just feel it is lacking for the price you pay. All in all a lovely stay, and the views and location are great though, just needs a few finer details and attention to detail.

    Thank you for such a high score of 88% for your stay at Afallon, it is much appreciated and is great to hear that you loved the location and views as much as we do. We do leave cooking basics for our guests but unfortunately, sometimes guests take them home by accident which leaves the guests directly afterwards without any until they can be replenished, so apologies this happened in your case. Thank you so much for your feedback regarding leaving logs or coal for guests, we haven't stayed in a property that has left this before so we didn't even think about it, but we think it is a great idea so we now leave a starter pack for both our open fires in the property for guests to enjoy. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

  • "We loved the place!"

    The only thing I would say is that for a British holiday a tumble dryer would have been useful. We didn’t find a washing line but that’s not to say there wasn’t one but it made drying clothes more difficult. There are probably a few areas that need some attention, like the conservatory door and the back door which have seen better days but it didn’t detract from our holiday and I would certainly recommend the place.

    Thank you so much for your amazing feedback. We have a tumble dryer on order and although we do have an airer in the property - we will order another to ensure there is plenty of space to air clothes following washing them. Look forward to welcoming you back soon. Property Owner

    Amazing view and lovely space to spend time together relaxing All the rooms are a good size and very comfortable The hot tub was a bonus that we all enjoyed Local pub the Gazelle was an easy walk with great food and service we would visit again but just with 8 people

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback and I am so pleased you will be returning to us in the future - we look forward to welcoming you. The double bunk beds in the 4th bedroom are as described on the website, a small double and we have had many bookings with 10 people that have found them ample of space but it is of course personal choice. The Gazelle pub is definitely one of our favorites too, being able to look directly out across the straits in both directions is quite stunning so we are so pleased that you too enjoyed it. Hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "The location is great and the view is amazing and we spent all our time in the conservatory."

    The house is well appointed, however for the cost of the accommodation we felt that there should have been a tumble dryer, more equipment in the kitchen and at least basic condiments such as salt and pepper. The cleanliness was not up to standard, lots of dust under the furniture, the conservatory needed a deep clean as the windows and framed were very dirty. The wardrobes and draws in the front bedrooms were dirty and dusty so that you could not unpack your clothes. The double bunk beds were very squeaky and the top frame was dirty. One bathroom is also difficult when you have a large family staying, I think that the description states up to 10 people.

    Many thanks for your fantastic feedback. Thank you so much for your suggestion for installing a tumble dryer - we now have one on order and will install when we next have an owner maintenance slot. We always ensure there are basic condiments in the property but unforetunately some guests take them home with them by mistake which is what had happened with yourself and the cleaners did not have time to replace before your visit. I have also spoken to the cleaners regarding the conservatory and although we ensure it is thoroughly cleaned on the inside, the window cleaners that clean the outside only attend once a month. We have however requested that they attend every 2 weeks instead now so thank you for your feedback. Thank you also for your feedback on the double bunk bed and the fact that it squeaks, we were unaware of this and so have ordered another one of these and will replace in September. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

The property

Boasting panoramic views across the Menai Strait and towards the Snowdonia National Park is Afallon, a stunning period property set amidst a peaceful woodland setting, yet within striking distance of the bustling towns of Menai Bridge and Beaumaris. With four bedrooms, a stylish interior design and its superb location on the Isle of Anglesey, this detached property promises to be an exceptional self-catering experience for families or groups of friends.

Soak up the views from its elevated position before entering into the house and finding the spacious entrance hall, leading you into the sitting room.

Light up the fire to set a cosy ambiance as you curl up on the leather sofas to tune into the TV or perch at the bay window, affording a constant connection with the picturesque views of the waters, where on a clear day, Penrhyn Castle can be seen.

Return back to the hallway to find a well-equipped games room, certain to keep younger guests of the group entertained, whilst the sleek kitchen is certain to entice the chef of the group.

Modern painted cabinets are topped by solid worksurfaces, providing plenty of preparation space and houses a range of quality appliances for cooking up a storm each evening.

A handy boot room lies adjacent for useful storage and is equipped with a luxury wine fridge.

The dining room boasts an expandable table to sit up to 12 people, to enjoy an evening in front of another open fire and idyllic views through sliding doors.

Open up those doors to reveal the conservatory, where a morning cup of tea, watching the breath-taking sunrise or a moment’s peace and quiet can be enjoyed, with the striking views to keep you company.

Here, you can step outside Afallon and enjoy a terrace with a seating area and a hot tub where a glass of wine can be enjoyed whilst in awe of the view in front of you.

Steps take you down to a secret garden with numerous entwined pathways leading to further patio areas showcasing different, stunning viewpoints.

Returning inside, through to the hallway, you can take the staircase up to find four bedrooms, comprising of two double bedroom, where coastal views continue to captivate, a twin bedroom and a double bunk bedroom, each one boasting a refreshing colour palette, quality linens draped across sumptuous beds and plenty of storage space to keep your things. The pebble beach is just 200m away, where the children can spend endless hours collecting shells and discovering caves or in the warmer months the family can enjoy paddle boarding, swimming or bathing.

For the evenings where you do not feel like cooking, stroll just 200m to the nearby Gazelle Hotel or the luxurious Hotel Chateau Rhianfa, where you can enjoy an evening meal whilst overlooking the beautiful Menai Strait.

Or take a 15-minute walk to the town centre of Menai Bridge, where you will find a larger selection of places to eat and drink with something to suit all palettes and pockets, as well as a plethora of shops to browse.

Take a moment to brush up on the local history at the Menai Bridge Heritage Museum before hopping on board a boat to discover Church Island, home to the well-known Saint Tysilio.

Or if you’re feeling adventurous, pop into the famous Menai outdoor activity centre and learn to windsurf or sail or enjoy a family day out kayaking, mountain biking or an exhilarating rib ride.

Continue just 2 miles from Afallon along the coastline to find the beautiful quaint town of Beaumaris, home to more amenities, a 13th century castle, a Victorian prison and opportunities to enjoy boat trips out to Puffin Island.

Nearby, is Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens, as is Pili Palas Nature World, home to meerkat, bug and butterfly enclosures, both promising to be wonderful days out for the whole family.

On the isle, beaches are in abundance and a local favourite being the stunning Newborough Beach, where you can laze on the glorious sands to admire the views of the Eryri (Snowdonia) mountain range, stroll through the woods with your canine companion or venture to Ynys Llanddwyn, a magical place with historical buildings awaiting to be explored.

Just a short distance across the Menai Bridge is the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, home to a plethora of walking and cycling paths, as well as many other outdoor pursuits for the thrill seekers amongst us.

A wonderful getaway awaits you at Afallon.
