  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful location that is an ideal base for a couple looking to explore Anglesey."

  • "Lanka made a 24 year dream come true!"

    We’ve walked past Lanka for all those years and envied whoever owned it. We love the area so much that my Husband proposed to me on the headland behind the cottage and it was the first walk we took both our Daughters on when they each were babies, so to stop in Lanka really was special. We’ve had the most amazing family Christmas in your beautiful cottage, thank you so much for sharing it! We arrived to find a bottle of wine, Welsh cakes and even a lit Christmas tree, how lovely! The cottage is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. There’s every utensil you could ever need in the kitchen, all bedding and towels etc were provided and there was even toilet roll, washing up liquid, hand wash etc to start you off. Even logs for the log burner etc were provided, which we used on Christmas Day - just lovely! The kitchen is so well stocked with saucepans etc I managed to prepare a 3 course Christmas lunch for us all. We had a fabulous family Christmas, waking up to the sound of the waves, enjoying lots of long walks and meals out at The Boat House and Dylan’s. We found a selection of games in the wardrobe, so enjoyed those too. Thank for an amazing Christmas and holiday, we will DEFINATELY be returning!!

  • "Lanka is a little gem!"

    We stayed here on a pre Christmas break with the kids and dog. On arrival we were given wine and Welsh cakes. The cottage was beautiful, it felt like we were living in a fairy tale! Clean and fresh, the decor was seaside themed and perfectly suited the place. My teen daughter who is very hard to please, said she wanted her very own Lanka, and the access to the pebbly beach made for excellent teen beach combing! The weather was wet, and blustery but we actually really enjoyed it. The dog loved having his ears flapping on the headland and chasing seagulls, he would have been down there all day if he could! We had some lovely food at Ann’s Pantry in the village, and they even had doggy treat bags. We loved Lanka so much we will be returning in 12 months time. Just perfect, location, cottage, cosy, comfy and cuddly!! Thank you to the owners for sharing your little gem!

  • "We arrived at Lanca in the pitch black, during a major storm."

    Trying not to get blown over on the way to picking up the key from the key safe was an experience. Once inside the property we lit the log fire and the place was snug and warm in no time. The cottage is exceptionally clean and has all the facilities you need. Being right on the beach in the middle of a storm was no problem because the cottage is very secure with strong walls and windows. There are stunning views and beautiful walks along the shoreline. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend, despite the weather. Can definitely recommend.

  • "Our fantastic holiday in Lanka, certainly lived up to our expectations and more."

    A unique and beautiful place, with breath taking views, that change by the minute. Who needs television!! The cottage was full of charm and very cosy. The quality / cleanliness of bed linen and towels, was first class. I couldn’t in all honesty, find fault with anything and can ( already have) recommended Lanka to people. We would love to stay there again.

  • "Adore Moelfre and surrounding area anyway and was always desperate to stay in Lanka as that little spot is very special."

    It did not disappoint! Cosy, clean and well equipped. Wood burner is a fabulous addition. Will come back some time soon. Also a big thanks for sorting the change of gas canisters so quickly when they ran out.

  • "We absolutely loved this cottage and the location."

    It is qell equipped. Being next to the beach and sitting outside the cottage are lovely memories. We also love Moelfre having spent many previous holidays in the area. Our only criticism is that it is difficult to access the far side of the bed in the large master bedroom being under the slope of the roof. This is not very clear in the photos. If the bedroom door opened outwardly instead of inwards then the bed could be moved more to the centre of the room to give easy access to both sides of the bed

    First thing we did on waking was to open the top part of the front door, look at the wonderful view and listen. Magic!
