  • "Very comfortable cottage with a friendly hostess."

    Nice separate garden area which was ideal for our dogs (4). We were offered the use of fields to let our dogs run in but rather too much sheep droppings so we took them to the Range which is just a one minute drive away or a 5 minute walk if you are are energetic.

  • "WOW! A beautiful property in a beautiful location."

    The perfect place for relaxing or walking and sightseeing. There was everything you needed supplied in the cottage. The support offered by Debbie was above and beyond and with my husband having disabilities and a dog with seizures knowing if anything happened someone was there to help me if needed was invaluable. Within 24 hours of arriving there we booked to come back. Gwyneth, you and your team are amazing, thank you for letting us share you little piece of paradise. Deb, Tony, Giz & Daisy. Xxxx

  • "The cottage is fairly isolated which is not necessarily bad."

    It is not within walkable distance of a pub, shops, restaurants etc. The mobile phone signal is poor to non-existent and the wi-fi is variable in quality (maybe dependant on your adjoining neighbours usage). It is ideally sized for two folk (plus pet) and would recommend to others as long as caveats about communications are isolation are known. Anglesey as a whole was fantastic and well worth the visit.

  • "A beautiful little cottage on the owners 70 acre livestock farm."

    The cottage is very cosy and well appointed for two people. The owner is very welcoming and it was a nice surprise to find a little welcome pack on arrival. Great time of year fir a visit, despite the wind, watching all the newborn lambs and their mom's in the fields. A very relaxing and enjoyable stay to celebrate my wife's birthday and to catch up with family.

  • "A very comfortable, spotlessly clean cottage with a fantastic view of Holyhead Mountain."

    On a working farm with a host who greeted us with a warm personal welcome and who was available with plenty of local knowledge and advice whenever needed. Plenty of places for walking and some lovely little beaches to watch the waves roll in against the rocks. Dog friendly with an enclosed garden that was perfect. Will be looking to book again.

  • "This is our 3rd visit to this cottage and yet again it didn't disappoint."

    Great location the view from the cottage is amazing and I never tire of looking at Holyhead Mountain. Our 4 dogs enjoyed it also and we spent the days hiking and exploring the area. There are photo opportunities around every corner of this beautiful Island. Gwynth was great and was very knowledgeable regarding the area. We look forward to returning for another visit in the future.

  • "We had difficulties finding the property, perhaps a simple map could be supplied."

    The cottage when we found it was very nice, and the owner was lovely, could have done with a little more cutlery and crockery we were in a one bedroom cottage for two and there was only two mugs and two cups three tea spoons. There was no freezer in the cottage, it was only by chance that we found the communal freezer in an out building when we heard the neighbours talking about it. I know I seemed to have mcomplained a lot but the cottage was lovely and we had a very good holiday, very peaceful and lovely scenery

    It should go without saying and receiving a text which seemed nagging in tone spoilt a lively day out.

    Thank you for your feedback. The email and text that you are referring to, were sent by Sykes and not the owner. We are giving all guests a 'gentle reminder' to please ensure a property is left in a safe condition for the cleaners. I am sorry to hear that this email spoilt your day out. Property Owner

  • "This is a fabulous property on Holy Island, Anglesey."

    Quiet and relaxing. The owner is a lovely, friendly lady who goes above and beyond. Secure garden area for the dogs, which is a lot larger than it appears in the photo. WiFi and mobile reception can be a bit hit and miss but you are in the middle of a small island. It’s the perfect excuse to get away from social media. Other than that, everything needed for a relaxing break is here. Highly recommend this property.

  • "Beautiful cosy cottage, good enclosed small garden , think large dogs may be able to jump wall."

    Host nice and left wine,biscuits and brought fresh eggs one morning. 5 min drive to a lovely beach/cove and accessible to rest of the island. Views are beautiful and we had great weather for the time of year. CONS : massive let down was the shower water pressure, it was a trickle at times and unacceptable. Such a shame as bathroom was stunning. TV needs replacing as colour kept going very dark , also to a smart tv so people can have a variety of things to watch too. Wifi very intermittent but sometimes this is expected in remote areas. All in all we had a lovely holiday but would not return due to the cons I've mentioned.

    Perfect location for walks with dog friendly beaches close by and several walks around the area within walking distance or a car journey if happy to travel. Gwyneth was there to meet us on our arrival and then left us to enjoy the holiday but lives on site if anything was required. In the cottage was a tray with biscuits and tea and coffee so you were set to go before unpacking. She gave us eggs on one of the days which were fresh that day and they were lovely. We took 4 dogs with us and this wasn't an issue with them at all they settled straight in. Would highly recommend going again and we will no doubt be booking for next year.

    Other issues that we didn't bother reporting to her : WiFi unreliable, dvd player broken, oven didn't work. The cottage was beautiful and very clean and the location lovely but basics like clean drinking water are essential. The trip was booked for my husbands 50th and we didn't stay the full week, his birthday was ruined. We only stayed 4 of the 7 nights and when we called sykes they said that the owner denied any problems. Won't be using sykes again.

Bodwarren Farm

Holyhead 1.3 miles. These six lovely properties are set on the owners’ 70 acre working livestock farm, in a rural location, close to the town and ferry port of Holyhead on Anglesey. With stunning sea and mountain views that can be seen from the farm, these holiday homes are ideal for couples, families and friends with a number of attractions and places to visit within easy reach. Y Wennol and Y Wylan offer single-storey accommodation and both sleep two people, whilst Y Barcud and Bran Goesgoch sleep six each. Cysgod y Bugail and Llety'r Bugail are two delightful little shepherd's huts also sleeping two each. All properties share a courtyard area to park cars, and four have an enclosed garden with a lawned area, patio and furniture whilst the two huts provide peaceful decked balconies, a perfect setting to enjoy an alfresco dinner at the end of the day. Although these charming retreats are in quiet location, there’s something for everyone nearby, including a visit to the town of Holyhead which has remains of Roman town walls and forts, a colourful marina, maritime museum, shops and pubs. Holyhead is also a main ferry point for Ireland, so a day trip to Dublin may be on the cards! Also close by is the Breakwater Country Park, a former quarry, from where you may be able to spot seals who visit the Holyhead coast. Just over three miles away is the resort of Trearddur Bay, with its sandy beaches and watersports. Other places of interest are cliff top walks over Holyhead Mountain, and South Stack Lighthouse RSPB Reserve is well worth a visit. All this and much, much more can enjoyed from these welcoming holiday homes.

About the location

HOLYHEAD

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.
