A warm welcome from the owner and all arrangements went very well. Fantasic view. Thanks. Reviewed by JasonSep 2023 "My husband and I were thrilled with the Swn Y Wylan cottage." It was lovely and had all we needed to enjoy our vacation in Wales. The furniture and beds were very comfortable and the kitchen provided all we needed to prepare meals. The owners were wonderful and surprised us the 1st day with some great treats! The location was ideal, enabling us to drive a short distance to see sights and walk to restaurants for dinner. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to spend some time in North Wales. Reviewed by SusanSep 2023 "This was our third stay at Swn Y Wylan in the last 16 months - we love it here!" It’s wonderful to return to a place that you know will have all the comforts needed to have a relaxing stay and easy access to all the amazing places to visit on Anglesey. We enjoyed many walks and visited lovely places to eat. We love The Green Olive, Dylan’s and Ann’s Pantry. We hope to return again before too long. Thank you to our lovely hosts for making this such a beautiful place to come away to and enjoy the amazing views over the Menai Straits. Reviewed by JulieAug 2023 "Owners of property were incredibly attentive and kind." They went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for us. Property is beautiful and the views are stunning! Reviewed by TracyAug 2023 "Beautiful house with stunning views." Incredibly clean and well appointed. Lovely host! Reviewed by SimonAug 2023 "The house was amazing and had everything we needed." The immediate area was great with some walks nearby and shops and places to eat just down the road. We managed to visit lots of beaches within a thirty minute drive, all of which were beautiful. We'd definitely recommend staying here. Reviewed by CarolineAug 2023 "It was perfect!" Homely, stylish and with a view to die for. Reviewed by MaxineJul 2023 "Up there with the best of the holiday homes in Anglesey." Elen and Gordon are wonderful hosts, Elen has thought of everything that you could possibly need in the cottage. Comfortable, clean, tidy, and the little above and beyond touches....wonderful! Home from home... Would highly recommend.

Reviewed by GaryJul 2023 "We loved this property, it was so well equipped, tastefully furnished and comfortable too!" Beautifully light and airy, with great views. It's in an ideal location - fantastic places to see and visit nearby, great restaurants within easy walking distance too. Lots of good recommendations from the owner, and in the Sykes app - which helped us make the most of our stay. All in all - a perfect holiday home! Reviewed by MandyMay 2023 "This was our second stay at Swn Y Wylan this year and it was just as lovely as we remembered." It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the amazing views. The location is close enough to walk into Menai Bridge to enjoy a range of cafes, shops and restaurants, and also gives easy access to the whole of Anglesey for lovely beaches and coastal walks. We hope to return again next year. Reviewed by JulieOct 2022 "Really is a fantastic place." Hosts were really helpful. Reviewed by PaulSep 2022 "A stunning property in an amazing location with unforgettable views and lovely hosts." Reviewed by HelenJul 2022 "This is the most perfect holiday home we’ve ever stayed in." Faultless. Reviewed by AnthonyJul 2022 "Beautiful property with breathtaking views." The hosts have thoughtfully equipped the cottage with everything you could want for a perfect break. The welcome pack was very well received. The property was immaculately clean and comfortable. Lots of places to sit and appreciate the scenery. We loved the perfectly curated decor and appreciated the effort made to present it so beautifully. The cottage is perfectly located for day trips and activities. Having visited Anglesey since my childhood (but always the far side of the island) we finally got to walk under and over the Menai bridge. Menai village itself is buzzing with nice bars, cafes and restaurants. I’m now sold on staying in Menai as it is so convenient for exploring both the island and the mainland. We feel very fortunate that we had the opportunity to stay in this cottage and want to thank Elen and Gordon for sharing this beautiful place with us. My only regret is that we only booked one week and not two. We very much hope to return, hopefully sooner rather than later, to this very special residence. Reviewed by HelenJul 2022 "When first entering the property it looked very nice, particularly with music playing when you go in." After a few hours you begin to notice things that should not be allowed to happen. Cleanliness in the bathroom being the main item. Dirty shower pipe and the shower cubicle in general, nothing a bit of bleach wouldn't put right. Small window very dirty when opened, also hinges. Toaster in kitchen should be replaced if possible. Doors have been turned around and not finished correctly, lots of gaping holes. Too cluttered in the lounge, too many sofas and chairs, like an obstacle course. Too many mirrors that had items obstructing your view, two next to each other, totally unnecessary. This was a shame as many of the items were good quality. Reviewed by LynneJun 2022 "We loved this property." Every comfort even dressing gowns provided! We had a great week and would definitely go back. Fabulous views. Highly recommended. Reviewed by SusanJun 2022 "Swn Y Wylan is a real gem and a fantastic base for exploring Anglesey." As previous guests have stated the photos do not do justice to this beautiful property. Tastefully decorated throughout, well equipped, spotlessly clean with breathtaking views. Thoughtful welcome goodies and lots of useful information about the Island - we cannot fault it. Thank you! Reviewed by SarahJun 2022 "Swn Y Wylan was a fabulous bungalow on the edge of Menai Bridge but conveniently close to the restaurants in town and a great starting point for seeing the island of Anglesey." The owners had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The kitchen was well equipped, the storage in the bedrooms plentiful and the extra touches really appreciated. The views from the house were fantastic and we spent hours just appreciating the changing skies and the glimpses of the mountains when the clouds broke. We would definitely like to return. Reviewed by SarahJun 2022 "A superb accommodation in a fantastic location." The bungalow was beautifully presented. Everything about it was of the highest standard and excellent quality. The owners have thought of everything and were very well coming and helpful. Fantastic views over Menai straits. Private and beautiful gardens. Would highly recommend. Hope to return soon. Reviewed by SueMay 2022 "We had a lovely week in this wonderful property." It was very hard to drag ourselves away from the fantastic views over the Menai Straits and mountains beyond. We have always enjoyed our visits to Anglesey but Swn Y Wylan is an ideal location to explore from and come back each evening to relax in comfort and style. A week wasn’t long enough and we could easily have stayed much longer. Thank you for the thoughtful welcome items, suggestions for places to visit and for creating such a beautiful place for us to relax and enjoy. We hope to return very soon. Reviewed by JulieApr 2022 "Had a wonderful week at Swn Y Wylan enjoying magnificent views over the Menai Straits." The cottage is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable and has great facilities throughout. The kitchen and utility room has everything you need. The outdoor seating areas are great for enjoying the views (we were lucky with the sunshine) and private parking is easy. Great to have a wood burner for the evenings. Also good to have choice of TV options with smart TV. Lots of nice touches set it above the rest like ready made fire, starter pack, welcome card, wine, fudge, bottled water & milk in the fridge, Newspapers and TV Guide, the nice room sprays, relaxing spa shower wash, fairy lights in the entrance way, outdoor solar lights round the terrace. Mum loved the Welsh cakes! I didn't get chance to taste so will take her word for it! The radio was on when we first entered the cottage and was classic FM though it was a piano concerto and we actually thought someone was greeting us with a piano :) Ellen and Gordon were so helpful and friendly. The cottage is close enough to walk into town to the nice restaurants and there are several nice walks and places to see around Menai Bridge from Cadnant Gardens to the Belgian Promenade. But on Anglesey you are never far from anywhere. Menai Bridge is a good base for exploring.

Reviewed by LizSep 2021 "Swn Y Wylan is in a great location, a 10-15 min walk from the centre of Menai Bridge with wonderful views up and down the Menai Strait." The cottage is very comfortable with ample space to relax and a very well-equipped kitchen. The balcony area at the front of the house is perfect for catching the morning sun and the rear terrace and BBQ area gets the evening sun. The house felt very private and was not overlooked by any neighbours and there was ample parking. The cottage has many home comforts, a lot of thought has been put into the furnishings and facilities to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. Reviewed by FionaAug 2021 "Beautiful cottage with great views." Clean, comfortable with everything you need for the stay. Soft furniture and equipment are of very good quality. Perfect as a base to go and explore Angelsey and Snowdonia, we will be looking to book again when we are coming back. We had a great stay, thanks for helping us in creating memories! Reviewed by ArnaudAug 2021 "We had such a lovely holiday at this beautiful house, with great views overlooking the Menai Straits." It was very well equipped, with lovely furnishings and lots of extras (Sykes need to update the photos as the house is even better than the photos). There were so many things that made this house a comfortable and special place to stay. The owners have done such a good job on making the house inviting with thoughtful extras that are rare in a holiday let. It is modern, fresh, welcoming, very clean and we would love to go back!

The owners put a lot of TLC to their holiday project and we appreciated it and will be back. In the description of the property it says that there are only 2 bedrooms when in fact there are 3. The information given was confusing because it mismatched the pictures provided. Reviewed by AgataJun 2021 "Great location for making the most of Anglesey and Snowdonia." Wonderful views from the house and everything needed for a comfortable, relaxing stay. Reviewed by AndreaJun 2021 "Brilliant" Reviewed by PatrickMay 2021 "The high location of the cottage above the waters of the Menai Strait is certainly a premier feature." Considering all we are going through at the moment, the cottage was extremely clean and smelt fresh. The result, I would guess, of a lot of extra hard work on behalf of whoever cleaned the place. Internally the cottage is open plan and there is a lot of space. We liked the non-slip floor in the large shower - that was excellent. The kitchen had plenty of room to self-cater. The gas rings on the stove took a little getting used to, but the dual electric ovens were excellent. Bedrooms were super and were very clean. Door lock on the outside door was a bit dodgy and needed a good hard pulling to before the catch would engage. The extension was a very useful feature for storing jackets and rucsacs etc. There is plenty of room for two or three cars. Angelsey is the largest island in England and Wales at 276 sq.miles, so you do a lot of driving to get to places and there are a lot of places that are well worth visiting. Beaumaris is the honeyspot of the island, but despite that it is well worth visiting. Asda at Llangefni has the cheapest petrol at 110.7p for unleaded when we were there (Sept/Oct 2020), but we saw 119.9p. Do your research well before you visit for places on the island to visit. The walk via Menai's back streets along the water front, under Telford's Bridge (amazing) to Church Island is fabulous. Finish uphill at Waitrose. The weather was reasonably kind to us, so we were able to do a lot of walking and exploring. We stayed in Menai Bridge, where the cottage is located and the newspaper shop next to The Bulkeley Arms and the three coffee shops/cafes in the centre were all great with really friendly folk attending to customers. Angelsey is most certainly a great holiday destination. Reviewed by DuncanSep 2020 "The cottage and owner were brilliant ."

Gorgeous cottage and we really loved the personal touches. Perfect place to relax and sight see from. It has all the amenities you need. Loved the views! And the fireplace!! And it was so spacious - big enough for all 4 of us (parents included) to spread out. We loved it and hope to go back. Reviewed by KirstenDec 2019 "The property was excellent and warm enough in good autumn weather." One thing that might let it down in cold winter weather is that the floor is bare floorboards, a consistent thing we find in holiday lets, also no curtains and doors removed. Re-instating some of these will make it more comfortable in very cold weather and cheaper to heat. The location is a good base for exploring and close to amenities. It is quiet and the view from the property is exceptional.

The property is located along the Menai Strait very close to the Menai Bridge. There are exceptionally wonderful views from the property of the straits making for wonderful leisure filled moments and relaxation. The property it’s self is beautiful and well appointed. WiFi that works, awesome walk in shower; clean bed linens and fresh towels! What’s not to like! Moreover the kitchen and dining area is well designed and well lit and perfect for entertaining and indulgencing all your cooking ideas. For a family or group of six you cannot ask for more.
