  • "This was our second stay in the property, which we really like and would highly recommend."

    Despite this, there are some things that would have made our stay even better, as follows: 1. the cooker hood lights need to be replaced. Neither of them worked and there were no spare bulbs available. 2. the cooker hood fan needs to be checked - it was very noisy and I think it is faulty. It was unusable. 3. the soap dispenser on the dishwasher remains closed during the wash cycle, which means that the detergent is not released into the machine. 4. the kettle needs to be replaced because the lid is broken and potentially dangerous. 5. the frying pans and metal baking trays should be replaced because they are very old and scratched. 6. more cutlery would have been useful. 7. the fan in the ensuite bathroom was unusable - it seems to be on its last legs.

  • "Isfryn is a very nice, spacious , clean and comfortable property, It has great views from most windows."

    The access road needs maintenance and is only suitable for four wheel drive vehicles . This was mentioned in the welcome pack . We were aware that it was early in the letting season but the outdoor garden facilities were untidy and not very welcoming in contrast with the interior. The house name was worn and not particularly visible which is very important after a long journey with some narrow lanes to negotiate at the approach to the property. Despite these points, our party of four had an enjoyable stay.

  • "What a fantastic location in an absolutely wonderful house."

    We've had the best holiday and couldn't have asked for more. The walks in the local area are perfect for us with our Labrador. We loved watching the ships at sea and the tides come and go from the living room window in a morning. It was so peaceful. The lack of light pollution meant we could see so many more stars and even a few shooting ones. It's been magical and I hope we'll return one day.

    The approach road has many complaints but we found it ok and we was in a normal car, if you take it slower it was fine. We will definitely go back to Isfryn as it was so nice and very relaxing place to be.

  • "After I’d booked a week in Isfryn, several negative reviews were published which left me somewhat apprehensive about the upcoming holiday."

    As it turned out, I needn’t have worried. Isfryn is a lovely spacious property with beautiful views from the lounge and bedrooms. Yes, some of the grouting is a little black around the base of the showers but this is a very minor detail. The rest of the house appears to have been freshly decorated and it was clean throughout. The lane up to the property is rough but if taken slowly it’s absolutely fine. Even with a car without much ground clearance, we didn’t experience any issues. We will definitely be booking again.

  • "Isfryn is a really lovely property in a great position for attractions on both the island and the mainland."

    The major drawback is the approach road which is in a dreadful state. Unless you have a 4x4 your car is likely to 'bottom' and it can't be doing tyre lifetime any good. The other drawback is that (as others have mentioned) there are several minor issues that could be fixed on a changeover day but haven't been. We left a note detailing 7 issues, the most serious of which was that we were unable to find oven gloves - H&S issue Sykes. The vacuum was hopeless and poored 'wet dog' smell into the room rather than picking up. The sink in the en-suite bedroom drains very slowly. If these were all fixed then Isfryn would be a 5 star property every time. If you have already booked, don't dismay - we had a great week and these issues are irritations rather than holiday spoilers.

    Overall the property was very clean and we would recommend it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Minor criticisms would be: Crockery and cutlery are getting worn. Clean pillow and mattress protectors should be provided for new visitors. They were grubby and some pillows have no protectors. The draughts through the windows and doors in the lounge made the room quite cold with the weather not being too good.

    Relaxing and beautiful place. Have visited on many occasions, sharing with friends and family and everyone loves it. Great to see much needed improvements made, new cooker, wardrobes, freshly decorated, new heated towel rail in bathroom, new shower heads, new outdoor seating (on decking was a treat as never sat here before and the sun beams here) Couple of niggles; one seat cushion missing on a sofa on decking, some old doors left on the decking, no basics in kitchen i.e. wash up sponge, cloth, one dishwasher tablet. Would ensure we take these next time. On the whole a fabulous holiday cottage in all seasons, perfect, peaceful location.

    The property is in a beautiful location with great views and just a 5 minute walk from the beach. It's also very well positioned for exploring the rest of Anglesey. We found Isfryn to be clean, the furnishings very comfortable and to have everything that we needed. Before our stay, we requested a stairgate and highchair were made available to us and these were both in the property on arrival. We filled our sunny week with lots of beautiful days out and were sad to leave. Having stayed in lots of great properties on Anglesey over the years, we are happy to say that this is one we would stay in again. Thank you!

  • "Overall we loved the property,and had a wonderful holiday."

    The location though remote is fantastic.However some lack of maintainence alongside some untidy aspects need to be addressed. A garden bench collapsed due to being rotten which could have caused injury. There are also rotten timbers on the raised patio. There is quite a bit of rubbish which needs disposing of such as empty boxes, and the remains of an old kitchen. Lastly the track to the property needs to be mentioned. It is passable with care with a normal road car on a dry summer's day. However if it is wet I would say you would almost certainly need a 4x4 or a high vehicle, to navigate the deep potholes and rocks.

    The house is lovely. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the facilities were great. My only comment would be as there is only a washer dryer and the dryer side isn't very good a rotary line with pegs would be useful.

    The position of the property was ideal for local walks (despite the weather) and the whole property is very well maintained and comfortable. Our only minor comment was that there are a few pieces of equipment missing that would have increased our rating to 5*. A clothes airer would have saved us using the tumble dryer (& far cheaper!). A cafetiere, mixing bowl & some pyrex dishes for the microwave would have made life easier. We will certainly return

    We had a long cosy weekend there , over looking Red Wharf bay. We woke to see billowing clouds broken with blue sky , red sand on the beach with tidal waters changing the view daily. The house was really warm with a log burner in the lounge which we made full use of. Isfryn was larger than we expected , with new carpets, new thick towels, comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen. Dressed for Christmas made us feel welcome. Parking for the cars was more plentiful and the house was directly on the Welsh costal path. What more could we ask for. Thank you to the owners for trying so hard.

    Water pressure very strong in bathroom. Could do with a chair in each bedroom. Mattress topper stained. Initially no logs for fire and no matches to light it. Carpet in lounge badly stained.

  • "We found Isfryn to be a very spacious and warm house."

    The twin bedroom has some shelving for clothing but there is nowhere to hang clothes and since it is a smallish room perhaps it is more suitable for children. Oddly the only bedroom with a mirror is the en-suite room. The house is in a lovely, secluded position with views of the bay. Many pleasant walks can be made from the door. Access to the property for the last 200 Ms is by a rough track but taken slowly driving an Octavia and a Polo we never had problems. Previous reviewers mention the absence of an adequate vacuum. The issue is now resolved with a new ‘Henry’. We accept that the quiet location will limit mobile phone signals but our main gripe was a very intermittent Wi-Fi connection. It seems to be a BT hub via a landline but even so for say 70% of the time we needed Wifi the hub was not connected. Perhaps we were unlucky since no one else has mentioned this as a problem in reviews or the visitor’s book. Bins collection is fortnightly. We put both outside the gate and they were emptied on Thursday 6th October. We experienced some minor cleaning issues and were I the owner I would be disheartened by the many carpet stains to what look like newish carpets. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay and the real test is would we go again – the answer is ‘yes we would happily return’.

  • "Lovely cottage in a tranquil location with views over the bay, surrounded by nature."

    The road to Isfryn is a single track country road then onto a farm track but our cars and a motorcycle made it up and down with ease. We loved the isolation and peace. The tree house type platform was perfect for all day chilling on with breakfast or to enjoy a glass of gin on in the afternoon. Log fire was enjoyed of an evening and sofas and beds all comfy. We had 4 adults a child and 2 dogs and we all had space, it felt safe and was fun to be in after our days exploring Anglesey. The Panton arms nearby was great for food and atmosphere. Local garage for firewood was convenient. Could do with a little investment to enhance some tired furniture and replace a useless hoover (it wasn’t nice to not be able to hoover as we went especially with having a small child and dogs) A new bench would also be lovely as it is so lovely to be sat outside the lounge area. Bathrooms and showers etc great and this house has a lovely open homely feel to it.

    The kids loved the snug and the games were an added bonus and they spent hours just playing. The decked patio is such a sun trap and we sat for hours watching the kids play on the lawn.

Not a complaint or negative but needs a new hoover as it didn't work, with children and visiting the beech it is definitely needed.

    The views we had were brilliant. Did you know about the bat's from the nextdoor cottage? My hubby counted 140 from dusk, made his day. You can walk down to the beach but that hill is very steep for some people but hubby found another route back which was flatter. We visited our favourite beaches and our dog teddy loves them but not the sea. Lovely to go back to a homely house and chill, and being by the sea we were both really tired, and the beds provided were really comfy. We both love Anglesey and will be back in October with the family and we have booked with Sykes Cottages again. So thank you for a lovely cottage with no worries at all to stay in.

    So we had to we work out how to operate things (devices, heating etc), what the cleaning requirement was for end of stay, and things not to do on property (eg. light a flame above the submerged gas tank in the garden which people might do innocently). There were a few points of decor that could use patching (dripping/very stiff taps, paintwork) but overall a very comfortable house. The massive lounge could accommodate chairs/table at the rear to make best use of that space. The house itself was lovely, great position and views. People would be well advised to avoid visiting with any low sports car given the final track after the tarmac has ended. We would happily return to the same location.

    There were a few things we felt could have been improved on before giving it 5 stars. One of the chairs in the kitchen was very uncomfortable and badly needs replacing. There was no bin liners when we arrived, only a dribble of soap in one bathroom and one full toilet roll. The fire didn't look like it had been cleaned in a while. Before we were able to use it we had to give it a good clean first. The vacuum does not work. There were no owners instructions in the property, so we had no idea when bin day was. We assumed the laundry bag left out was for linen and towels, but only knew this from going away last year. The curtain rail in the double back bedroom is coming away from the wall. None of the above stopped us from having a lovely holiday. Thank you.

Well equipped for children with high chair and stair gates and space for them to play in the lounge, with a smart TV with Netflix/prime enabled.

Only suggestion really is to have more hooks to hang towels upstairs, none in the main bathroom and twin bedroom. Short drive to the house on the bumpy track would be tricky for low sports cars for example, but all other cars will be fine just take it slow!

    Beddgelert is a beautiful village in Snowdonia, the Fudge shop sells home made fudge in various flavours, the crumbly fudge is gorgeous. The biggest disappointment was the log burner in the cottage, it was unusable when we arrived completely black with soot, you couldn't see through the glass, I cleaned it out thoroughly and it still smoked us out the first night, I again cleaned it thoroughly, I got loads of soot out of the chimney, but then we just gave up with it because it smelled do strongly of soot, the chimney is well overdue for being cleaned, This was very disappointing as at this time if year an open fire or log burner is definitely a decider in our choice of Cottage, we have been on at least a dozen Sykes holidays and this is the first time I have had cause for complaint. The owner of the property did not contact us before, during or after our holiday. The range cooker was not very efficient, the main oven took an age to cook anything, the small cooker to the side was better, not all the gas rings worked.

    We spoke to a neighbour and were told that all property owners had been notified that the power would be off on that day from 9.00 m to 4.30pm. Unfortunately on that particular day we had arranged for friends to visit us for a meal. This had to be cancelled and we ate out. We couldn't shower or even make a cup of tea as the gas ignition wouldn't work and we needed to go into Pentraeth to buy a box of matches as there were none in the house. The owner of the property apologised via Sykes but he said that he had no prior knowledge of the cut. The fact is that everybody was informed even if it didn't get through to the owner. I asked for compensation of £50. In the end after negotiation through Sykes, I got £25 which I think is a paltry amount for a whole day (and food as well) spoiled. Ultimately somebody was responsible - where does the buck stop. All of that said, we did enjoy the rest of our holiday and it is a lovely house in a beautiful area

  • "The cottage was warm and comfortable and we had a lovely time with the whole family."

    However, I would say that this is not a house for 6 people - it's a house for 4 adults and 2 children! The twin-bedded room was deceptive in the photograph and was very much smaller than we anticipated. There was also nowhere to put clothes apart from a rather wobbly cheap unit of 3 small shelves with canvas cover over the top. We also had a problem opening the key safe as the 4th button of the key code would not work. In the end, after struggling, we managed to open it by pressing all 4 buttons at the same time, but this took two people to open it! It definitely needs replacing. The only other thing that would stop us coming here again was the access road. The instructions said a stony track! They did not say it was a very rough track full of pot-holes and made getting up and down to the cottage difficult, unless you were in a 4x4! We scraped the bottom of our cars on several occasions despite driving carefully and trying to keep one set of wheels on the raised grass bit in the middle!!

  • "The house was all we needed it to be."

    It was safe for the children, clean and comfortable. The location was great as it was near to the beach and other locations suitable and within driving distance for the children. Wherever we went everyone was so friendly and helpful. Anglesey we'll be back!

  • "Our only criticism would be that we didn't feel Isfryn really catered for six adults with the smallest bedroom not being very comfortable for 2 of us and not enough variety of crockery for six people dining in i."

    E. serving dishes etc but very happy otherwise with the spaciousness of the property and the fabulous location and views. The sunsets were something else!

  • "Property large very clean and well equipped."

    We were very surprised that the garden to such a property was not very big. Only has a front garden an half of that taken up by the parking suggest visitors take a four by four as the road to the property is a steep dirt track full of pot holes the sea views from the lounge are wonderful don't suggest you walk to the beach unless you have walking boots and are used to walking

About the location


Red Wharf Bay 2 miles; Benllech 3 miles; Beaumaris 6 miles.

Pentraeth is a small attractive village on the banks of the River Nodwydd on the north-east coast of Anglesey. It has a village church that dates back to the 12th century and is located between Llanddona beach and Red Wharf Bay, which has over 4.5 miles of sandy beach. Red Wharf Bay’s Welsh name is Traeth Coch (Red Beach) and the area is renowned for its glorious sunsets. The bay is very shallow and provides safe bathing, perfect for wonderful family fun, fishing and miles of stunning scenic walks. The large bay attracts a huge number of waterfowl and wading birds, including shell duck, grey plover, purple sandpipers, curlew, oystercatchers and dunlin. Only 6 miles away is the delightful medieval town of Beaumaris which boasts a 13th century moated castle, excellent shops, pubs, restaurants, bistros and museums, as well as a golf course and exciting pleasure boat and sea fishing trips. This is a great location on the east coast of the picturesque Isle of Anglesey, yet only six minutes from the Britannia Bridge to access the mainland.

Note: As with many of our rural properties, access is by a track, which can be rough in places.
Note: Dogs welcome for a supplement of £30 each.
