  • "Brilliant place, lots of room and very well stocked."

    It was perfect for our stay. We had a great time. Amazing views and great location for Newborough Forest.

  • "I have scored low on cleanliness because there was more than one lot of old dog poo on the lawns which desperately needed mowing."

    Had the lawns been mowed it could have been picked up and removed prior to our arrival. Very off putting. One of the blankets in the basket in the dining area had horrid brown marks on it. The TV is too small. Some of the crockery is chipped. We looked for games to play we could only find 2 packs of cards and no books. Most holiday homes offer a basic selection of games and books. The beds are heavenly and incredibly comfortable. Disappointingly there is a lot of road noise from passing traffic. We left early because we were not enjoying our stay in Forest Lodge which sadly did not live up to our expectations.

    Superb location for walks to the beach & through the woods. Close to shops ect & actual house has everything you need to make your holiday run smoothly.The views from the back are stunning and nice to relax on the decking weather permitting. I hope to visit again next year if it still available x

  • "It’s a lovely property in a spot we know well."

    Very well equipped, nice and clean. No issues save for the openness of the garden… We were aware it wasn’t fenced in before we arrived, but with two teenagers and a very well behaved dog with excellent recall we didn’t think that it would be an issue. Unfortunately early on our stay out dog saw a rabbit in the garden (there are many) and was off down the road after it just as a stream of cars were leaving the beach (it can get busy at times). Fortunately all was well and dog came back, but it made opening the bifold or enjoying the garden pretty much unusable for us as dog owners.

    The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. It's in an excellent location, Llanddwyn beach is beautiful and great for swimming or body boarding. We would definitely come here again.

    Spotlessly clean, comfortable, well equipped, and the location is out of this world. We were lucky with the weather and spent most of our evenings relaxing on the verandah under the fairy lights. On the first day we had trouble shutting the bi-fold doors, the property owner was super helpful, talking us through it over the phone. Hopefully we will be back again soon

    Comfortable, cosy lounge with a log burner which we used on the first evening. Bright spacious dining area. Everything you can think of available in the property. We were lucky with the weather so were able to sit out on the decking. Amazing views. Would definitely stay here again. Loved it.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to give us this wonderful review. We are delighted that you found Forest Lodge such a lovely place for what appears to have been a great 'get together'. Property Owner

  • "We love the look, facilities and the cleanliness of Forest Lodge."

    It was our 3rd visit and we really enjoyed it. Being able to walk to the beach is brilliant and the shop just down the road for those forgotten items is very useful. The longer length of hosepipe outside made washing the dogs down much easier, thank you! Whilst there was an abundance of wine glasses, a few more tumblers would have been useful (we appreciate storage is an issue). The simple rearrangement of the items in the kitchen cupboards meant much more room for storage of our food - thanks for that too. We love it.

    Thank you for your kind feedback, we are so pleased that you enjoyed yourselves at Forest Lodge again. I know we are somewhat biased but we love the setting too, the forest and the beach are magnificent whatever the Welsh weather offers! Thanks also for the tips on supplies, always handy to know when items need topping up. Hopefully, look forward to welcoming you back next year and thanks again for taking the time to respond.

    The location was perfect. A short drive to the beach and forest. The EV charger at the house made us explore the island more than we have previously so we thought that a great addition. The house was very comfortable, especially the beds. It met all our needs.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are delighted that you were able to make the most of all the fabulous walks on the doorstep ( and those further afield) and we bet your four legged family members enjoyed them too! Thank you again for your review. Property Owner

  • "Our second stay in Forest Lodge."

    A great location with tremendous views across to Snowdonia. Comfortable and well equipped. Forest walks from the doorstep. Walk, cycle,or drive down through the forest to a long beach and walk out along Llandwyn island, especially if you like sea swimming from a smaller beach/cove. Area good for wild flowers, including lots of orchids in season.

  • "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.

    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!!

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.
