  • "I have experienced lots of different cottages all over the british isles over the past few years."

    .The Old Lifeboat House is one of the best..The views are outstanding and the property itself was in pristine condition..such a beautiful area..i would highly recommend it to anyone..my only little gripe with the house was a bit of a fishy smell when going from the kitchen to the living room..the only thing i could think of to explain this was maybe anyone that did fishing whilst staying at the property would maybe bring their catch in through the side door and put it down in that area..other than that i have no idea..my sense of smell is second to none there was a definate odour..that aside its a fab house and i would return for sure.

  • "Hello 9am."

    is too early to clock out and 5.00 pm is too late to clock in. Apart from that it was splendid. But no tea cosy and no toast rack to complete home comforts!

  • "Main problem is with the booking agency itself."

    .. we received a text the day before we were due to leave advising us we had been sent a text re leaving preparations. a) we were unable to access our emails whilst away b) the text had been sent on a no reply message thereby useless. We did manage to contact a friend who had been to the cottage previously who gave us the information. The only other problem was the refuse removal. The outside bin was full on our arrival and wasn't emptied during our stay.

    The view over the Menai Straits from the house never fails to inspire, just beautiful.

  • "The Old Lifeboat House was the perfect location for our holiday in North Wales."

    The views were magnificent and we were lucky enough to see dolphins and seals on a couple of occasions. The only real negative was that the garden wasn't really useable to play in - it is really more of a driveway and very exposed to the cliff edge (and the wind!). Also, in practice access to the beach itself was via a public footpath (although it was only a 30-second walk!). Would definitely recommend to others.

  • "The Old Lifeboat House was exceptional."

    It was magical to stay there and we would love to go back. The house was beautiful and lovely & warm on our arrival (& there was a delicious cake to enjoy & milk in the fridge). It had everything you could need - and every comfort had been thought of to ensure we had a wonderful stay. The views were breathtaking and to see the birds, seals and wildlife on your doorstep (so to speak) was incredible. It was a wonderful place to have as a base to explore Wales too - an absolutely incredible Holiday Home that we loved!

  • "On arrival I entered the code I was supplied with into the key safe for the properties keys."

    After trying to open it for approx. 15 min I gave up and tried to ring you for advice. After being on hold for 20 mins I finally got through after stating my problem with the key safe I was told that the owner had changed the code. I booked this holiday approx. 9mth ago surely you had time to contact me as regards to the change of code, so after wasting over one hour I was finally able to get into the property.

    We are very sorry about the issues you had with the key code upon your arrival. This was due to a system error. Property Owner

    We have also stayed in other Menai cottages and have been more than pleased with all of them but The Old Lifeboat House and the surrounding area the ever changing views from every window is more than we could wish for.

  • "Superb location, stunning views and overall facilities."

    High standard of cleanliness. It is hard to find any faults other than the kitchen/diner cupboards design not user friendly and oven and dishwasher over engineered for a holiday let. Broadband connection poor (a BT problem) and perhaps to be expected. Our Canadian family appalled by re-cycling arrangements, but we accept this is a local authority issue. Despite all this we would recommend the cottage without question.

The property

The Old Lifeboat House is both romantic and atmospheric.

Step out onto the balcony, where the remains of the old lifeboat slipway can be seen in this beautiful south east corner of Anglesey, and hear the sound of seabirds, the salty smell of the sea and the mournful gong of Trwyn Du lighthouse.

You might even be lucky enough to see a dolphin pod while relaxing on the balcony with a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. The open plan living, dining and kitchen area is a lovely bright and contemporary space.

The living area has cane sofas and chairs and a wood burning stove with a dining table and chairs to seat 8 comfortably.

The kitchen has an oven and hob, fridge / freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and plenty of pots, pans, crockery and utensils. French windows lead to the balcony which has lovely views and garden furniture. The rear hallway has a door opening to the garden with a footpath down to the water’s edge. A second cosy sitting room has two sofas and large, flat screen TV and DVD player. The washing machine is house in a cupboard in the front hall. There is a ground floor twin bedroom and shower room with large shower cubicle, loo, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. Upstairs there is the master bedroom with king size bed and en-suite shower room with shower, loo, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

There is a further twin room upstairs and a family bathroom with large bath and hand held shower attachment, loo, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. There is a graveled drive and parking area and a large, natural, lawned garden. Just a short drive will take you into the popular seaside town of Beaumaris.

Enjoy it's many independent shops, cafés and restaurants or soak up some culture in the castle or Victorian gaol.

If you can drag yourselves away from the sea views at this stunning holiday cottage, you will find there is so much to see and do on Anglesey. The nature of the location of this property means that there are areas of cliff face and the sea is close by.

Guests with young children need to be mindful of this. Not suitable for those who have allergies to pets.

Notes: The nature of the location of this property means that there are areas of cliff face and of course, the sea within close proximity to the cottage and guests with young children need to be mindful of this.
Note: Not suitable for those who have allergies to pets.
Notes: Due to the proximity of the lighthouse if there is sea fog they will sound the electric fog signal. These occasions are rare and the Owner has provided earplugs for such occasions
