  • "We were led to believe we could go into the property at 3 pm."

    When we got there the lady was still cleaning. Not totally clean when finished, floors dusty. She did say the hoover was broken, but when my husband looked it was the bag that was overflowing and no spare bags available. No key to the byfold doors. Only one pillow each. Having said all that it was a lovely house and we thoroughly enjoyed it and ideal for a family. A major plus was the bit american style fridge freezer as well as the small fridge. Ideal if all the family staying for the full week.

  • "A very nice spot and well thought out layout."

    It was incredibly warm inside and we did not even get around to lighting the fire as a result! Only minor negative comments - there wasn't a peeler and only one tea towel we could find but otherwise the kitchen was very well equipped for us to make our festive leals! Locals in the pub were some of the most welcoming and lovely we have ever come across - and Newborough beach is spectacular - we will be back!!

  • "Loved the property and the location was fantastic."

    Tastefully furnished and decorated, very comfortable and cosy. If it had a toaster and an enclosed garden it would have been perfect.

  • "Yet again another facility that the barbecue was left uncleaned and we had to clean prior to use, not the ideal start to our stay !"

    Would recommend the owner or representative check the property prior to each let, so all faults can be rectified. Shower surround upstairs was disgusting, heavy black mould and twin bedroom window wouldn’t open, nobody checking. Pointless writing feedback, received no response from my feedback regarding my last years stay in the Lake District , Sykes you need to do better

  • "The view of the mountains from the cottage is wonderful."

    The lodge was very well appointed and comfortable. The bifold doors opening out from the dinining area on to the patio are a very nice feature in warm weather. The owner was helpful and phoned us on the day before arrival to check our requirements for the arrangement of the beds.

    It was immaculately clean and tidy and there was more than enough facilities available. We had a lovely stay and will definitely be back. It was a lovely walk to the beach and the decking area outside creates a lovely atmosphere.

  • "We had a wonderful week in this beautiful property."

    The views of Snowdonia are stunning, and the location is perfect for Newborough beach. The property was well-equipped, and great for young children (high chair, stair gate and cot all provided). The only thing missing was laundry detergent, which we hadn’t thought to bring with us. A stunning place to stay, highly recommended.

  • "We had a very pleasant stay at Forest Lodge, the accommodation was well appointed, lovely and clean and very well equiped."

    It is ideally situated for Newborough Warren, the forest and beach. The welcome package was much appreciated, particularly the biscuits. There were plenty of logs and so we had a fire most evenings however the accommodation was plenty warm enough without the fire.

  • "The location is great close enough to walk to the beach (about 30 mins)."

    There isn’t much to do in the town itself, just one pub (that doesn’t do food) and one shop, which has the essentials. The lodge itself is perfect for families with a large decking area and BBQ with a large garden. The views early morning and late evening are spectacular and I would defiantly stay there again... either in winter or summer!

  • "Forest Lodge is a very well appointed property, with a really good range of facilities to provide a comfortable stay."

    Our only issue, was the fact that the garden is not enclosed. It's a lovely space but would have been much more relaxing if we didn't have to monitor the dog in the garden at all times. We had one incident where the dog slipped her lead and ended up on the road. That being said, it's a lovely property in a beautiful location.

  • "This is a wonderful property in the most beautiful location."

    The views from the property are stunning, it's very close to a wonderful beach with lots of forest walks as well. You can drive to Newborough forest and beach but if you're feeling energetic it's only a 25 minute walk from the house. The beds are really comfortable and all the rooms are lovely, the kitchen is really well-equipped, the bathrooms are lovely and we enjoyed nights in with the log burner. I can't recommend this place enough. The layout downstairs is also fantastic, it's very social and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this place.

    We had a great holiday with no real complaints if I was to not pick a number of the glasses were cracked and there was no key for one of the bedroom windows but these were very minor points Overall we enjoyed the experience very much

  • "Before we arrived, we had high expectations of Forest Lodge."

    To say that it even exceeded our expectations is no understatement. The location has amazing views that are both nice to wake up to and to sit and idly watch. The location on the edge of the Newborough Forest could not be more convenient for walks on the beach, near the dunes or in the forest itself. The cottage is well equipped and a really comfortable place to spend a week (or more!). I would particularly like to mention the owner, who was so helpful when we had to cancel our last booking at the cottage at the eleventh hour due to my wife's illness. Highly recommended.

  • "Negatives - The central heating on the ground floor didn't seem to work although oil-filled heaters were provided and were reasonably effective."

    Some of the windows e.g. main bathroom, have a large gap between the window the frame which let in the wind/rattled the doors - to be fair, it was incredibly windy when we were there - Storm Hannah! Some of the furniture is, literally, on its last legs, especially the dining chairs and the fittings/fixtures in general are slightly on the tatty side. Positives - nice layout in a great location with good views of the beach and Snowdonia in the distance. Living/dining rooms were a good size and comfortable, the log burner was a nice feature. Patio looked great although we didn't use it because of the bad weather. Bedrooms were of a decent size, the ground floor one would be good for those who struggle with stairs. Bathrooms were good with excellent showers. The 30 minute walk from the house, through the forest to the beach was lovely. the beach itself is wonderful.
