  • "We’ve just returned from a lovely 3 day stay at Penllyn with our 3 year old grandson."

    What a beautiful property it was. The property is well situated to visit places in Anglesey and North Wales. The property is very clean and homely and the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you will need with the luxury additions of a washing machine and dishwasher. The beds were extremely comfy in all rooms and both upstairs and downstairs bathrooms had great showering and bath facilities. It was lovely to sit at the rear of the property watching the goats and horses graze and both our dogs really felt at home. Apologies to the owner for us leaving some bakery items in the cupboard which we forgot to pack on the day we were leaving. Will be definitely returning to Penllyn in the near future.

    Thank you for your feedback glad you enjoyed and the dogs looking forward to meeting you in the future Property Owner

    Sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay when I brought the second bulb I did ask if it was the type you require you confirmed the mattress should have had a topper will be sorted thank you If the cottage wasn’t clean it’s a shame you didn’t let us know so we could do something about it as we have never had anything like that in the past The pictures in our page shows that there are no wardrobe in single rooms as the cottage has been set up for families with children. We do recommend if a party like yours book a cottage that you enquire if it is suitable for four adults, If you would like to book in the future we do have a second cottage ideally for a couple Thanks Gwyndaf Property Owner

    The cottage was superbly located, very comfortable with lots of space both indoors and out. The back garden was a perfect size for the pooch. The horses and goats in the field were an added bonus and so lovely to sit and watch them. The owners were on hand to answer any questions and were lovely and friendly. The cottage is really a hidden gem and in a perfect location for local walks as well as exploring further afield on the island. We had a truly wonderful stay - it just wasn’t long enough! Already looking forward to our next stay!

  • "We were looking for pet-friendly accommodation and this certainly ticks that box."

    Our two dogs enjoyed the safe, enclosed back garden as well as the expansive front lawn were they could great all passers by. Our visiting grandchildren loved the horses & goats in the adjacent field whilst for me, it was the peace & tranquility of any early morning coffee whilst listening to the birds & farm animals greet the day. Just a 40 minute walk away, through a nature reserve, skirting a forest is one of the most beautiful beaches on the world. If that doesn’t take your fancy, deviate slightly and you find yourself in sand dunes and grassland with wild horses and rabbits for company before reaching the estuary with its views of Caernarfon Castle in the distance. They say it’s all about location, location, location and this property is testament to that maxim. One small niggle in this post covid world is the absence of hand soaps so pack some of your own.

    Loved waking up to the goats and the horses each morning. Cosy living room with a log burner. No logs provided but that didn’t bother us as we always take our own anyway. We even took our own hoover (to keep on top of the messy children and dog!) as we usually find that there isn’t one when we’ve stayed at previous cottages but there was one already available in the cottage. Owner very friendly and available if needed but also not intrusive. We will be returning in the future.

  • "The start of our holiday was ruined by the key being absent and the owner not answering any of his 3 phones and then turning up without notice 20 minutes later."

    We had travelled for 3 hours and had our 2 dogs. When we gained entry there were no loo rolls. The access code for the wiki had faded and was illegible. It is advertised as having a wood burner but no logs. The heating didn't come on automatically. There were no waste bins in either bathroom to dispose of wipes etc There was a intermittent smell of drains sometimes quite strong. There were no cleaning products making leaving the place clean difficult. This has potential to be the perfect cottage with its enclosed garde and stunning views with easy access to the coast but it is poorly managed. Finally I know welcome packs are not obligatory but not even a tea bag

    Thank you for your feedback, on Sykes website it clearly states that no guests are to arrive before checking time, I checked my cameras and you were 20min early I was 3min late coming back with the toilet rolls and to check the cottage and place the key in the safe , because it states that there is a log burner it’s doesn’t mean that the wood is supplied with the wood burner wood are not fixed heating the same as central heating I can’t comment on the heating not working as it worked fine for guests before and after sorry as there was no bins in the bathrooms you did mention to Sykes that the radiator in the shower room was not working we checked this and someone before had turned the radiator off, the smell we can’t comment on as we have had no feedback from anyone else, because you were kept waiting at the start of your holiday I did offer a late checkout on the Thursday as I had no one coming in until Friday but you declined the offer, can I make one small suggestion if there is an issue in any service industry please let the provider know as they have the chance to rectify the problem as you notified Sykes on the morning you departed. Thank you Property Owner

    We loved the second seating area in the sun room, looking out on to the garden and the field beyond. We would recommend to others, most definitely. Items we felt were missing and would make a difference to those staying at Penllyn: A small bin in each bathroom (only one dustbin in the kitchen). Handsoap and towel in the d/s toilet next to the back door.

    It was clean, very well equipped and comfortable. The garden was secure so our dog was safe with plenty of room for a run. The farmers were very friendly and informative. It was lovely to be able to sit out with a cuppa and see the views of the mountains. Very friendly horses and goats in the next field who loved a fuss. Also Ben the sheepdog loved to pop by and say hello. The cottage is in a great location for seeing Anglesey. There are also beautiful walks (all dog friendly) and beaches on the doorstep. I've stayed in several cottages and this is one of the best. The only negative was the Wi-Fi was a bit hit and miss, but it meant my teenager put his phone down and spoke to me instead

    Really enjoyed our stay. Could do with a lamp in the lounge as the spotlights are a bit intense in the evening. Also there were no oven gloves (not sure if this is a Covid thing but surely they could just be washed like the bedding) no soap, and no utensils or gloves for the woodburner. None of these would stop us going back but would be very easy to solve.

  • "Property was not ready for our 3pm check in, was closer to 4pm."

    No mobile phone number provided for owner and struggled to contact them on landline prior to stay (to confirm cot & highchair). Nice property and location. Owners friendly enough without being intrusive. Wifi coverage is very poor, perhaps due to router being bizarrely located at an extreme corner of the cottage in the conservatory. Smart TV is not so smart, did not have apps (eg. Netflix, Iplayer). Curtains are awful in bedrooms and barely keep out any light. Not good for a stay during long summer daylight especially with young kids! The owners really need to get some blackout blinds fitted or blackout lined curtains. Final snag is that the downstairs bathroom/toilet has an internal door with see through glass panels. Not good for privacy - this really needs sorting. So, all these snags could be easily fixed and this would massively improve the experience.

Behind the beach, the 1500 acre sand dune system of Newborough Warren is home to skylarks, meadow pipits and oyster catchers as well as toads and lizards and is protected as a National Nature Reserve. The Tan y Foel horse riding centre is within 3 miles of the village centre and Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel Farm and the Anglesey Sea Salt are only a short drive away and make a fun day out for the whole family.
