  • "A beautiful secluded cottage whilst still being at the centre of Menai Bridge surrounded by trees, birds and visiting Red Squirrels."

    It's a really relaxing spot. The cottage is very comfortable with all essential amenities, a lovely welcome pack and friendly, helpful hosts. This is an ideal base for exploring Anglesey and mainland Wales. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and we highly recommend it.

  • "Hi. Just returned from a week at the Hive."

    Set along its own lane to the right of the owners house is the cottage. Steeped in history Ron advised us that the conversion was originally where the coach would have been housed. Surrounded by lawns and trees we were lucky enough to see the red squirrels. The welcome pack Ron and Angela left for us was beautiful and included cake, orange juice and milk . The cottage was near to pubs and restaurants and we highly recommend the Indian restaurant Perfect holiday thank you Ron and Angela

  • "Lleyn Cottage is a lovely looking cottage in a great location, close to shops, restaurants, takeaways and pubs."

    Unfortunately it is dated inside and has a terrible musty smell that hits you when you open the front door, it also lingers in your clothing. We found the 2 settees in the lounge to be extremely uncomfortable, 1 very low the other quite narrow. However there is another in the dining room which is comfortable. The bathroom is compacted and the shower pressure is very weak. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need for a self catering holiday. We received a lovely welcome pack on arrival. The owner Ron is very friendly and helpful. The cottage is located in the grounds of the owners own home.

    Shelley We are sorry the cottage did not meet your and Allan’s expectations. The musky smell you describe was not experienced by this week’s guests (and has never been mentioned by any previous guest) - but thank you for alerting us to the fact it can occur. Perhaps you could have mentioned this during one of our chats? This would have helped me to discover how it could have been generated. Ron Property Owner

    The location of the cottage was perfect - set in its own peaceful garden yet within walking distance of restaurants, shops and beautiful scenery. The cottage was spotless and spacious. There was plenty to see and do in the local area. We must thank Ron and Angela (the owners of Lleyn Cottage). A generous and thoughtful groceries pack was provided and a cheery welcome from Ron as we arrived meant we quickly settled in. We had a very relaxing and restful week away and hope to return in the future. Karen and Mark.
