    Well thoughtout location so well secluded from neighbours , although on well used road noise minimal, facilities probably lacking is no free Wi-Fi , no Washing machine etc but great Shower , a very comfortable Bed , loads of Light in Living room, very quite , a real delight !

  • "This is a loverly little cottage."

    The pictures don’t do it justice but was the right size for two adults and two dogs. It’s situated in a good spot right opposite the local shop, two minute walk to the beach, local pub and cafe. My only issue is that they have stopped taking dogs. So won’t be booking again which is a shame.

  • "Loved this cottage!"

    Everything you need is in there. We loved the little courtyard garden with stream running just behind it. Tilly is so well placed for everything; the car park, the lovely harbour, pub, cafe, shop, fish and chip shop and a great gift shop are all within a couple of minutes walk away. Moelfre is a lovely little town with great coastal walks and interesting history, and is a convenient base for travelling round the island too. Hope to go back there very soon. ♥️

  • "This is a lovely little property."

    think it used to be a butchers shop. there are no windows in the bedroom, think this used to be the cold-room. the log burner heats up the area nicely and they supply a certain amount of kindling and logs. the owners put up a Christmas tree and decorated. opposite is a little shop which we found handy for things we had forgotten. it is just a few minutes walk to the sea and then onto the footpath to the lifeboat station. this is our second year of staying. there is a free car park just around the corner from the property.

  • "Beautiful location and a really welcoming cottage."

    Single floor living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom so basic set up, but excellently presented. Moelfre itself is a great and scenic little village and a great base for exploring Anglesey. Really enjoyed this trip and would love to come back.

  • "When we opened the door to the property we were meet with a over powering doggy smell."

    even though we sprayed febrezze every where it still stank. the property was dirty and in need of a deep clean. the pictures of the property are out of date and misleading . the bedroom was smell free, otherwise we would have gone home. we feel very let down with this property, we would rate it 1 star at best.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves again."

    It's not the first time I have booked through MySykes and it won't be the last. The cottage was just right for my husband, dog and myself and the coastal walks were stunningly beautiful. The walks were literally just 5 minutes down the road, there was a little shop opposite us with lovely people there and Ann's Pantry about three minutes down the road did the most amazing gluten free cakes and oat milk for my tea. They try to cater for everyone. Lovely place and lovely friendly people.

  • "The cottage is situated on the corner of a very busy junction so is very noisy with traffic and buses on the go all day long."

    There is a convenience shop opposite, a fish and chip shop a couple of doors away and a cafe next door so there are always cars stopping and starting, it quietens down about 10pm. The small cafe next door can be heard through the bedroom wall so no hope of a lazy lay in. The bed is very comfortable but the bedroom is quite stuffy as there is no window to get fresh air. The people above the bedroom can be heard; the day before I left they were making quite a lot of noise from 12 to 1am. The cottage is well equipped and cosy. The harbour is approx. 5min walk away and you can walk around the coastal path from there which is very beautiful. The TV was a puzzle for me to work out as the instructions are not very clear but once I got it working it was OK apart from the interference when traffic went by which was nonstop!! The owner Pat is very helpful and was on the end of the phone to answer any questions. Paula July 13-20 2018

  • "When we arrived the the cottage smelled of dogs."

    As if it had not been aired. The wardrobe smelled of dogs it was obviously the hoover. Towels were not great. The bath room was dusty. The washing up bowl was dirty. We stayed at the cottage last year and it was ok. Just disappointed this time.

  • "Tilly Ba Lou is a bit of a "tardis" having more space inside than the picture might suggest."

    Space in the bedroom is limited so beware of unprotected toes on those 3 am visits to the loo.The bed is very comfy as are the reclining chairs in the lounge. The only real disappointment was the t.v. reception is very " iffy", it's annoying when the picture suddenly freezes, I believe that the lead is taken from next doors ariel. The cafe next door which can be seen on the photo only opens at weekends. There is an excellent fish and chip shop a minutes walk away and Anne's Pantry is a great little restaurant just two minutes walk.

  • "The cottage is small but nice, the only downside is the noise neighbour who bedroom was above the bedroom."

    their played music from 6:45 till 8 Monday to Friday, my husband went round to ask the lady to turn the music down, she replied with I work and slammed the door in his face. we try to contact the owner to no answer and sent a text to no reply, I guess once she has your money she doesn't care. The matter is made worse because the owner has a sign up in the bedroom about keep the noise down because there a bedroom above the bedroom. Its a pity that we kept the noise down to the person not to return the same manners. if you are planning on staying in the village, for a nice quiet, relaxing time away, I would recommend somewhere else then this cottage .

The property

This cosy ground floor cottage sits on the edge of the ever-popular old fishing village of Moelfre, on the picture perfect Isle of Anglesey.

Offering basic but cosy and comfortable accommodation, perfect for a couple looking for a relaxing retreat beside the coast, this quirky holiday cottage occupies an ideal setting, tucked away opposite the local shop, and next to a day-time cafe, with a stream running behind it.

Inside you’ll find a compact kitchen, with a drop-leaf dining table and folding chairs for informal dining, along with a welcoming sitting room with a woodburner; a wonderful addition for a restful evening after a day on the beach.

The cosy bedroom has a concertina door from the kitchen, along with a secret bathroom, revealed via a sliding mirrored door.

Outside is a small rear seating area overlooking the stream, where you can enjoy a refreshing drink whilst listening to the water babbling past.

Within a two-minute stroll down a small hill, you’ll find yourself at the local village pub, where you can sample its fine home-cooked foods, with views overlooking the stony bay, Moelfre headland and the Irish Sea.

Enjoy delightful doorstep walks and cycle rides, with access onto the Anglesey Coastal Footpath across the road, providing a superb coastal walk to Traeth Lligwy.

Visit the Lifeboat Station and Heritage Centre where you can learn the history of its modern service, or try a spot of sea fishing, surfing, windsurfing or kitesurfing.

This lovely little cottage offers a perfect base to explore the delights of Anglesey’s charming coastline.
