  • "Lovely holiday at this cottage well positioned for sightseeing, very dog friendly garden."

    Newborough forrest beach 5 minutes drive away and is stunning, asda and good takeaways 10 minutes to Llangefni. Well equipped cottage .we had great weather. Two niggles Internet isn't the best and the shower could do with updating. But they are niggles and would not stop me returning.

  • "We were quite underwhelmed with the property, it was the most expensive we have stayed in on Anglesey and also the most basic."

    I noticed the price came down after we had booked, I won't be booking early in the future. Kitchen was poorly equipped, e.g. Only one saucepan with a fitting lid, frying pan had lost it's non-stick, only very small tumblers or large wine glasses for drinks, no iron. No decent seating to make use of the large garden. Cottage in need of a thorough clean, radiators were full of dust and hair, skirting boards and corners of rooms dirty. Bedroom carpet not vacuumed, dead fly and white feathers on carpet. Bad smell coming from chaise lounge, discovered a dirty sheet and pillow in the storage part when lifted. Shower tray and bathroom floor need replacing. Parts of the village a little run down, smell of cannabis in evenings, shouting and swearing to be heard from a handful of residents in mornings. On a plus the toys and dvds for children were a nice touch, milk and cake on arrival, beds nice and clean. Also it is a great base for exploring a beautiful part of Wales.

  • "Lovely house, very clean, felt like home from home."

    Conveniently situated near shops and cafe but in a quiet street. Our dog loved the garden. It felt very secure and had everything we needed. Would go back.

    Thank you for your kind words! Property Owner

  • "Lovely little cottage, great location and local amenities."

    Secure garden unfortunately it needed mowing and weeding. Great utility room to sort the pets before entering the rest of the house. We had nowhere to put our rubbish the bin was full. Could have done with an info pack on saying that the neighbour was a mine of information. We still liked it and even though there was a couple of minor issues we would stay there again.

  • "We have stayed in many dog friendly cottages, unfortunately this come nowhere near the best."

    The bathroom was a massive disappointment. The positives are the amenities and the very friendly residents in the village

  • "Cottage was ideally located for discovering beaches nearby."

    It had a nice private garden which we utilised to the full. The only down side to this was when we arrived we discovered someone had not cleaned up after their dog, which we fully appreciate is not the owners fault. Despite advertising Wifi this was not available, as the modem showed there was no internet access. This was very inconvenient as we needed to say in touch with business contacts There were no wardrobes or anywhere to hang our clothing up This is not a criticism but I think it needs to be pointed out, that the ground floor is not all one level and each area you have to navigate steps. There are steps to navigate to the back door and also up to the garden. This could be problematic for people with mobility problems or less mobile pets Insufficient lighting to outdoor steps which meant navigating some of them in the dark In general the cottage was ideal for our needs apart from the specified points. The small treats that the owner arranged delivery of was very much appreciated There were no problems with parking Would we stay at cottage again – yes, it was comfortable well located and provided us with privacy

  • "WiFi didn't work, reported this, chased response and had no WiFi for whole 7 days."

    Cottage has never seen a deep clean - no dustpan and brush, vacuum didn't work properly, fridge seal black with grime, baking tray not cleaned and full of grease, dust hanging from radiator, dvd player thick with dust, and smelled damp in the kitchen/living room, when we arrived. Cottage downstairs and bathroom was on the shabby side and in need of some TLC. Bathroom door broke at the end of our stay which we reported. Need extra storage for clothing like a wardrobe or hangers - the drawers weren't enough for 4 people and felt like we were living out of our suitcases. On plus side, bedding was very clean, great outdoor space, within easy reach of the lovely beach, always had parking, was able to eat outside most nights due to lovely weather.

  • "The only downside was that the WiFi and tv dig boxi did not work but other than that we had a fantastic stay, from us getting there untill we left nothing was ever too much for Anne (cleaner) and Kayleigh the owner who we spoke to several times during our stay."

    Kayleigh even sent us a gift which was waiting for us when we got in from the beach a very special touch and very thoughtful. The property has a beautiful garden which our dog Roxy absolutely loved. The property is in a great location for sightseeing and is only 5 minutes from a stunning 3 mile beach. Thank you for a fantastic break we have fallen in love with Anglesey. Roxy is still sulking because she had to come home. Would we use Sykes again? Definitely Would we stay with Kayleigh again? Absolutely. Thank you for the experience

    I'm so pleased that you had a wonderful time and thank you for taking the time to feedback. You might like to know that we changed the TV on the basis of your suggestion! Property Owner

The property

Nestled in Niwbwrch near Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, most commonly known as the place with the longest name in Europe, rests this pleasant two-bedroom holiday home, Cartrefle.

This homely cottage offers the perfect position for a small family looking to explore the picturesque sights of the Isle of Anglesey.

Access to the property is gained through the rear garden, located just to the side of the car park, and featuring a large lawned area where your four legged friends can roam free, as well as a patio with a picnic bench, so you can enjoy a tipple in the beautifully maintained setting with your loved ones after a busy day exploring the delights of the area.

Step over the threshold and into the porchway, offering handy storage space for your muddy boots and walking gear, before continuing through the hallway to the pint-sized kitchen/diner, traditionally designed with wooden worktops and featuring all of the amenities necessary to prepare a heartwarming meal that you can enjoy gathered around the dining table with the group.

After an action packed day, head into the sitting room to unwind, nestling into the plush sofa to enjoy a spot of television, heating the room with the warmth of the rustic woodburning stove in the colder evenings.

As the night draws to a close, head upstairs where you have the choice between the triple bunk room or the double room, rustically decorated with an antique sliding wooden door and both featuring a light and airy décor, offering a welcoming ambiance to rest your head.

Wake up to the sun streaming through the windows and head downstairs to prepare for another action packed day by jumping in the shower in the family bathroom for a revitalising rinse.

Put down the oven gloves and head into the centre of Newborough for a bite to eat at the village's 200-year-old pub, The White Lion, serving up fresh local produce, followed by a wander to the nearby archaeological site of Llys Rhosyr, home to the ruins of a pre-Edwardian commotal court.

Travel to the nearby village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, where there are many more eateries to choose from, as well as shopping opportunities including the James Pringle Weavers department store.

The town boasts plenty of sights to visit, including the Horatio Nelson Memorial Statue, overlooking the shores of the Menai Straits and commemorating the Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson who died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 as well as Caeau Glan-y-mor, a beautifully landscaped National Trust nature reserve offering scenic views across to the Menai Suspension Bridge and the Pont Britannia bridge that border it.

Make sure to stop at the railway station for an obligatory photo with the "Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch" sign on the platform, representing the longest place name in Europe.

Head further afield to the nearby seaside town of Beaumaris to enjoy a refreshing dip in the waters of the Menai Strait or a leisurely stroll along the pier, indulging in a portion of fish and chips from Dockshack.

There's a host of heritage to explore at Beaumaris Gaol, a former Victorian jail and Beaumaris Castle, dating back to the 13th century.

For a memorable escape to the Isle of Anglesey, choose Cartrefle as a base that you'll be delighted to return to.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

NEWBOROUGH

Bangor 9 miles.

The small village of Newborough (Welsh spelling: Niwbwrch) lies on the edge of forests and dunes at the south west corner of Anglesey. Close by is Llanddwyn Bay, renowned as one of the finest beaches in Britain, ideal for swimming, canoeing, beachcombing and birdwatching or just relaxing! 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. Nearby Aberffraw is the home of the Anglesey racing track and will offer an exciting day.
