  • "The property is beautiful and a fantastic location."

    The dogs loved the beach and going into the sea for the first time! Pity the sun didn’t shine on our coastal path walk yesterday, and we were very wet when we got back, but apart from that, all great

  • "Beautiful property."

    Everything was perfect from entering to leaving. Relaxing and inviting. Felt homely. Perfect little location. Superb enclosed garden for our dog, knowing he couldn’t escape helped us to relax and not worry. He couldn’t wait to walk over to the beach, beautiful view from the bedroom window. We will be back. Nice touches from the owner, tray bake left for us to enjoy. I miss it already.

  • "Absolutely amazing place."

    The location is fantastic, a few steps from the gate and you are on the beach. The dogs loved the garden too, nice and secure for them to explore. Property was well equipped and comfortable, furnished to a very high standard. Just be careful of the beams upstairs lol. Would definitely stay again.

  • "What an amazing place."

    The cottage was comfy and cosy and we felt so at home here. My dog had the most amazing time being so close to the beach for an early morning walk with no one around but the seagulls and oystercatchers was bliss for us both. We all felt a little sad at having to leave but we will definitely be back.

  • "Wonderful cottage, a stones throw away from the beach."

    We arrived at the tail end of storm Eunice, and had delayed our arrival by a day. The owners had thoughtfully provided a flask of hot water and flashlights in case the water and electricity had gone off. Fortunately, they weren’t needed, but it was a very nice touch.. A welcome hamper with milk, cake, tea, coffee and sugar was a treat too. The cottage was spotless, warm and cosy. Very well appointed, with all you could need. Our dogs enjoyed the garden. Thank you for sharing your lovely holiday home with us.

  • "Fantastic break at Pentowyn."

    Everything was as described. Downstairs was roomy yet cozy, with excellent facilities. The lounge area was great, we loved the log burner! Upstairs was as described - the headroom was reduced but it didn’t cause any issues. Very comfortable beds. We loved being on the beach, perfect for taking out our dog, and we did some great hiking too. Very useful books and maps on dog walking we’re provided too. The finish of the cottage was superb, as was the level of cleanliness. We’ll definitely return.

  • "The cottage is situated at the end of a street opposite the beach."

    Very close to main supermarkets and has everything In the cottage you would require for a nice stay. Books and games are also available and we completed the 1000 piece jigsaw on a rainy day. The only downside was that people are constantly pulling up and parking their vehicles outside the property and main bedroom window from 7am for beach access and arnt the quietest. A lovely stay overall

  • "The property was just beautiful, done to a very high standard, there is limited head space upstairs, but the rest of the cottage definitely makes up for that,everything you could ask for and a beautiful garden."

    We couldn't get over how close to the beach we were!! Out of the gate and cross the road and your there, it was perfect for taking my dog for walks, it is a popular dog friendly beach, even in November,so does get busy outside but this wasn't a problem for us. We will definitely be back Dawn and Carl

    The well maintained and garden size was impeccable.great location for dog walking.we do have a couple of suggestions for the owners.the chest of drawers in ground floor bedroom is too high my elderly mum could not reach for glasses or drinks also the bathroom floor drops as a step and blends in so do not see the step could do with a black yellow strip there.apart from this enjoyed staying very much would like to come back.

    Very close to the beach and shops. Beautifully appointed cottage. Felt like home. The bedrooms however are very small and upstairs in particular very restricted headroom. The smaller bedrooms are suitable for children only.

  • "The cottage was roomy and comfortable a bit tight upstairs for headroom but that is to be expected with the conversion."

    Kitchen faculties very modern and good with bath and showers all new. This is a newly converted cottage and done to a good spec we had the fortune of the heatwave so utilised the large garden and took the advantage of using the beach which is as close to your front gate as you can get. An added bonus is that the local amenities are a minutes drive away. A great place all in all and definitely worth a consideration when looking at a place to stay

  • "A real home from home, had everything we needed to enjoy our stay."

    A really well thought out property, renovated to a high standard. Super close to the beach which was perfect for our beach loving pups. Within walking distance to the shops & pretty central to many beautiful walks. Really good to see the owners take on board comments from previous visitors too - the garden is now enclosed, something which had been previously mentioned as a problem. Can't rate this property highly enough, really sad to leave but hope to return soon.

  • "Pentowyn is a cute little cottage perfectly situated just a few steps from the coastal path and a nice wide beach."

    When the tide's out, there's a huge expanse of sand to exercise dogs and humans alike! And at the far end of the beach there's the lovely Penrhos nature reserve where we found secluded coves and wonderful woodland walks. The owners have renovated the property to a high standard with great fixtures and fittings including a fabulous log burner which guaranteed a cosy day spent indoors when it was wet & windy outside. We were lucky with the weather for most of our week and we were able to make full use of the spacious garden and the little patio area with table and chairs (these weren't on any of the photos of the cottage when we booked so think it would be a good idea to update them to show this nice outdoor dining area). We noted that a previous visitor had mentioned that the garden wasn't totally enclosed, but we found it to be completely fenced off (perhaps new?) and our cocker spaniel was safely confined no matter how hard she tried to find an escape route! There's a plethora of shops, takeaways and restaurants all just minutes away, making Pentowyn a really convenient choice too - we had a really great week and would highly recommend it for a memorable break.

  • "It was a lovely cottage right by a busy dog walking beach, which was great But I take a great deal of time looking at the right cottage for us and our 2 dogs and the 1 of the main things we look for is an enclosed garden."

    Unfortunately it was not, so we were unable to let the dogs out on there own and when we did go out with them they managed to escape so easily as in jump over the low wall while people and dogs walking past or just step through the roped wall which just led them onto the ajoining car park. We could not relax and so did not enjoy the experience as we should. If your garden is not enclosed please say that so people can make the right choice.

  • "Me and my hubby (and our cocker spaniel) booked Pentowyn for a long weekend away to celebrate our second anniversary and what a weekend we had."

    The cottage it’s gorgeous and has been renovated really well and tastefully. We book these type of places for the location as we like to go out walking and this location was better than we anticipated, it’s literally right on the beach and should be advertised as a sea view property. I found myself setting alarms for earlier than normal to appreciate the sun rise views out of the bedroom window and even popping across to the beach to really take it all in as the place was so quiet and peaceful at that time. Short drives away took us to Holyhead mountain, red dwarf bay and other beautiful walks perfect for dogs. The garden was huge and the same with the drive, all enclosed so perfect for just letting the dog roam around but could imagine would be great for families too. For tall families/people, upstairs has very low ceilings, this isn’t a complaint as it’s an old building and the property is quirky, we were fine with it as we didn’t really spend our time up there. More tea towels or maybe a kitchen roll would have been good but that is literally the only slight niggle we could find with this place. Thank you for an amazing weekend and we will be back in future I’m sure. Nat, Chris & Paddy the dog.

    Immaculately clean and everything and more to have a relaxing break . The weather was shocking but the log burner made it very cosy . The roll top bath also helped with bubble baths . Our girls ( dogs ) loved the beach right at the side of the cottage . Only one tiny problem was the low beams upstairs. This only added to the character and charm though .

  • "The cottage was very cosy and warm."

    Everything was of good quality and having an outside tap was a boon for rinsing off the dogs after time on the beach. A few steps out of the cottage and we were on a green walk which led to the beach. We stayed for 4 nights and came away refreshed and relaxed.

About the location


Trearddur Bay 3 miles.

The bustling town of Holyhead rests on the North West coast of the Isle of Anglesey, the largest town on the island and perhaps known best for being the main ferry port to Ireland. Steeped in history, the town boasts the remains of Roman town walls and forts, medieval burial chambers and stone village foundations. Explore the Breakwater Country Park, a former quarry, which offers designated walks through the grounds. The park is full of interesting wildlife, most notably the seals who visit the Holyhead coast, and outlines the amazing construction of the world's longest breakwater, some 1.8 miles, which today protects the harbour. Visit the colourful marina with its yachts and tall ships, or the town's maritime museum, with its tales of 100 shipwrecks in the vicinity. Day trips to Ireland can be enjoyed easily from here, with Dublin just 90 minutes away on the fast ferry. With spectacular cliff top walks over Holyhead Mountain, golden sandy beaches at the award winning Trearddur Bay and the Snowdonia National Park just a 20 minute drive away, this is a superb holiday location, at any time of the year.
