  • "It’s a beautiful home lovely views , on entering it was freezing cold tbh , we struggled to find boiler which was the cooker !"

    It was damp and very cold and we sat in our coats tbh , it was an extremely cold day as well , my bedroom at front smelt of damp very noticeable tbh , and I had to open window to let air circulate in . The fire was a struggle and didn’t stay lit no matter what we did to it . It would be wonderful in summer and a beautiful home , we stayed 1 night as we were too cold tbh and came home early .

    Dear guests,I am sorry you found the cottage cold. Having cleaned the cottage I turned the Rayburn down as it was extremely warm inside. There is a dial as per the instructions that needs to be turned clockwise to increase heat and circulate hot water round rads. There is an electric heater plus and a regularly used multi fuel stove. Rayburn/ Aga ranges are extremely popular in the countryside.Perhaps a phone call to either the agent or myself with future issues ? We would be more than happy to help.Thank you Property Owner

  • "Stayed for 4 nights mainly to avoid fireworks for dogs."

    Absolutely surprised at this cottage. Full of original characters and very old. Stunning building with history. The cottage had everything in kitchen and throughout. Bath/ toilet had everything provided. We packed winter clothes but cottage so warm we were in shorts all stay. Log fire is beautiful. We wouldn’t of been warmer if we were in hell but this cottage was heaven. Stunning views of sea and beach 5mins away. Great pub and takeaways near by and fuel station had a general store better than most supermarkets. Parking adequate. Grounds are secure for dogs. Please keep it clean from your dogs as we did. If you want spotless, tidy, modern then go to hell on earth like a travel lodge or premier inn. If you want old and fascinating come to Buck cottage. See you again definitely. Dr Gary & Louise.

    We arrived to a warm and cosy cottage that is beautifully finished with an eclectic mix of furniture and gorgeous bedding, cushions and throws. Yes, there are some cobwebs and dust so not for you if you like everything immaculate but we felt able to relax with our 2 dogs and enjoy the amazing view over Red Wharf Bay and the nature on our doorstep. Just the escape we were looking for Thankyou.

    No idea what the sky t.v. clicker was for, or why we could not get live channels other than by app. Instructions may have been useful. Put bins out on Wednesday night, bin men came Friday and did not empty bins. The French doors were not secure when we arrived and then we realised why. Overall a lovely cottage.

  • "There is quirkyness about the property but the problem of no hot water for washing up and hands."

    After relighting Rayburn it made no difference had to boil kettle to washup, immersion heater did not work. kitchen smelt of oil and when sitting outside. The kitchen wood tops did not look well maintained and need refurbishing. No cupboard space for storage. The wood burner area had not been cleaned, with empty wood bags, dust everywhere. The steps leading from lounge to kitchen had a slip mat which did not work and felt dangerous. The shower was difficult as situated at opposite end to taps and had to stand right near end of bath where it curves up, very uncomfortable. Steps down to back garden very precarious stepping onto one small loose slap built upon lower slabs that were also loose. The garden was wild but not with flowers, it was overgrown mess with stinging nettles, ivy and weeds. One side of parking area had stinging nettles and overgrown bushes made it very hard getting in and out of vehicle without getting stung drivers side. The property has been let down by not giving enough TLC and upgrades within keeping it in with age of property. We left a day earlier, we would have left sooner except for our love of Anglesey, where we have rented numerous cottages in the past but this is the worst one ever. The pictures of property on website were deceptive. The only plus was the view. Mick and Linda

    Dear Guests I am disappointed you did not enjoy your stay  The Rayburn was tested 20.05.23 having been serviced by an engineer that week and was working perfectly? I will look at the outside slabs recently fixed again and remove any nettles. I am not sure how the cleaner missed the used logbags but will speak with her.  Yes the view is glorious and thank you for your positive comments left in our guest book.Vera Property Owner

    The place is filthy. Back room stinks of dog Lee. There was dog poo all over the back garden which I picked up We had no hot water the whole time, we did what paperwork said and still nothing We were cold at night. Far too many negative things about this cottage which is a shame as the location is good Sykes were very helpful and came out as soon as we rang them to assess the situation. This place should not be listed. The pictures are very different to what is it actually like. We won’t be back

    Dear Ms Sullivan, I have returned from holiday earlier than intended, as my cleaner was very upset at having read your comments in the guest book and since published on the https://protect-eu.mimecast.com/s/TwJcCKQQzF2E7zjiM1eGv?domain=website.in essence I can find very little to confirm your comments are true. I have received an email from Sykes who visited at your request which mentions some small untidy external areas etc however no mention is made as to an unacceptable internal lack of cleanliness. They could not smell dog wee it seems. I will update notes to include an emergency contact number alongside other useful telephone number. The heating is working and all other means of heating water e g immersion fully operational. There is a log burner, electric rads to supplement systems. A Rayburn engineer will confirm this to be true. The photographs of the cottage depict the house unchanged externally since long before 1800 and the stunning views to the rear are in an area of 'outstanding natural beauty and therefore remain untouched by law. This is an issue for the agents to review and comment on. I have emailed the agents and requested your contact details in order to suggest an independent body reviews your complaint as it is quite damaging with regard to future bookings and it gives you a legal form of recourse. I am confident this is the best way forward as it will allow us both a satisfactory outcome. I will of course accept their findings and respond https://protect-eu.mimecast.com/s/wAfGCLJJ0CRjByJTqOAz7?domain=accordingly.as to dog poo none of us have pets, I am therefore baffled as to why it was present on site. I have referred this problem to the agents and await advice. I look forward to receiving your details. Have you any photographs to substantiate your claims, they might help me to understand your concerns.

    Lots of cosy spaces and views. Perfect little quiet spot and plenty of wildlife. Walk to beach was lovely and fresh about 20 minutes down a country lane. Pub with great facilities and takeaway pizza 5 minutes walk. This is a traditional cottage ok so a few cobwebs etc but bed linens and towels were fresh cottons. My 3 teens loved it here and we would definitely recommend. Tesco also delivers here which was fantastic, we had problems with the hot water but owner had a maintenance person round in hours to fix so no problem there. Good sized fridge, freezer and microwave. Also 2 ovens in case you haven’t used a Rayburn before. Natural garden to sit in. Thank you

    This property should not be listed. Everything was untidy filthy grubby..... cow webs, greece, weeds growing inside house. This house needs a deep clean, freshening up and the garden sorting. ABSOLUTE DISGRACE

    Dear Mrs Attenborough,It is fair to say your dissatisfaction took up the whole of my weekend.The call came 5 minutes after your arrival ie 4.05 p.m. The cleaner returned immediately to find no-one in the house and discovered you were on the beach. She walked in through the doors you said were 'painted' stuck ! When you returned, you pointed out to her certain areas,  which in your opinion required attention These were sorted plus she vacuumed throughout,  however she was convinced that regardless you were set on leaving. It seens, bar a kitchen socket and webs all utilities were spotless. Very little was mentioned overall.Some items you photographed we simply could not locate (nor could the agents who visited to check the cottage following your comments).You were offered a second deep clean the following day as you had found other issues which you turned down and as you were set on leaving  I cancelled my visit to meet at the cottage as your departure was confirmed earlier in the day by the agents Alternative accomodation for your party of 4 persons offered by the agency was then deemed unsatisfactory by https://protect-eu.mimecast.com/s/iiYSCY55rTLooG0c0tHT6?domain=yourself.you then informed me you were staying !The following day I was told you were staying at the cottage after all but subject to the cancelled clean ( you had turned down the day before) being reinstated plus compensation I offered a goodwill settlement as compensation in full and final to bring this episode to a satisfactory end but it now seems this was not enough ! Your comments are unacceptable.I have contacted the agents and await their response.Good luck with future endeavours.regardsVera Jones Property Owner

    we were met by flowers, lamps lit and the heating on. Having 3 dogs does limit where we can go and Buck cottage was perfect. Having tiled floors in the kitchen ment mud could be dealt with and the living room had ample space for 3 dogs beds and the garden was totally secure both front and back. The proximity to the beach made for a lovely daily stroll, even spotting a red squirrel one morning. The beds were comfortable and the heating so efficent we only had to have it on for an hour in the morning and evening and it was so cosy lighting the wood burner after dinner. The towels provided were large and fluffy and every stick of furniture and art on the walls have been lovingly chosen. It really was a home from home and we will definately be coming back again.

  • "Lovely quirky cottage."

    However, photos very deceptive. We were a party of 2 with 3 dogs and struggled with the size of the kitchen. No storage for own food. Only seating for 4 in sitting room but cottage sleeps 6 Tight parking for one car. Someone needs to look in all the cupboards and replace old worn kitchen ware. Melted spatulas, frying pan that is no longer non stick (mentioned numerous times on reviews) no small kitchen sharp knives. Pillows old and uncomfortable Yes it’s old and full of character but the garden is a let down. Described as Wild. As Gardners ourselves this was once a lovely garden that nettles, ground elder and brambles have been left to dominate. Not wild in the true garden sense. This is a lovely old cottage that needs a little bit of thought regards what people need during their stay. Replacing old and worn items, very small changes needed to make this a wonderful cottage. Would we stay again, yes

    Dear Mrs Babey, Thank you for comments and I am pleased you would stay again. The cottage is advertised as sleeping 5 not 6 and I note you had removed two kitchen chairs from under the kitchen table.The pillows are not old and have protectors on them, however I will double check. Spares are in the airing cupboard.There are 3 frying pans the stainless steel is new and has no non stick coating as a previous guest had mentioned a non stick roaster, all items were pulled out and checked. There are several spatulas, unfortunately I must have missed removing a misshapen,  melted one apologies. Yes the garden is advertised as 'natural' though it is regularly mowed and strimmed I do leave brambles, and other natural plants and mix them with standard garden centre plants. Most guests like this though I am sure some prefer a more formal traditional cottage garden. Its never been that !Sykes do have other cottages which have bigger kitchens but as this house was built in 1600 and originally housed a couple with seven children I am not prepared to extend it. Sorry !Good wishes Vera Property Owner

  • "The location of the cottage is lovely and very convenient, the local beach is great for dog walking and the woodland is beautiful!"

    The house itself is very quaint and the history of it is wonderful. I appreciate there is a cottage aesthetic to be maintained but there are some elements that are in need of improvement. The kitchen cupboards don’t close properly and swing open all the time, the selection of knives to use for cooking aren’t sharp and one has been put back by previous guests and was broken so when I tried to use it almost cut me as the blade bent all the way back from the handle. The house itself was very dusty and there were lots of cobwebs which at this time of year is difficult to prevent but easily solved. My dog also had an allergic reaction whilst we were staying at the cottage that the vet in Aran had said was likely to be dust mites, myself and my husband also had a collection of bites on our ankles and feet from our bedroom (the room nearest the bathroom). The cottage is 300 years old and very charming. The decor suits the cottage but some very small improvements and the renewal of some basic kitchen equipment would make it a much more comfortable stay.

    Dear guests, I am pleased you loved the cottage and found it to be charming. The issues you have mentioned will most definitely be investigated ie kitchen equipment was checked by myself Saturday and seemed to be adequate ? The doors do close, promise but as they are original they require a little 'lift into place ! Old age, it happens to us all !As all 3 bedrooms were used am I to assume the problem with the vet diagnosis of mite infestation is confined to thisroom ? Maybe your dog picked up an 'allergy' from the beach or sand flies ? To date we have experienced no problems with mites ?I note you washed all throws used for doggy comfort as I found them outside on the washing line along with cushion covers Thank You Regards Vera Property Owner

    Some drawbacks - the cleanliness took the edge off what should have been a great stay. Kitchen: worktops need replacing (warped and uneven). Upper open shelf needs a good clear out/clean (all containers covered in grease/grime, half-used out-of-date salad dressing etc bottles from previous occupants not disposed of). A bit off-putting. Upstairs: cleaners clearly don’t do any checks (two drawers still had grim sweaty sports clothing left by a previous occupant). Rubbish collection: outside bins full to the brim upon arrival, no information about when they’d be collected, didn’t get emptied until day 13 of my two week stay (6 days after I complained) so we had bags full of recycling piled up.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The owner has noted your comments and will be looking into the issues but is glad to know that the emptying of some of the rubbish while waiting for the regular collection was helpful. Property Owner

    With the cottage being centuries old the windows were quite small so it was rather dark but plenty of lamps gave the cottage a cosy feel. The view was amazing such a treat to wake up to on a morning and the walk down to the beach didn't let the area down. The only downside for me was the open staircase but again bearing in mind the age and structure of the cottage It would be difficult to install a more conventional one.

    The cottage is full of quirky charm and and is beautiful on pictures however we had several issues. The cottage is situated on a junction which gets quite busy at times there is only parking for one car any other vehicles need to be parked on the narrow lane which wasnt ideal. The wifi did not work at all and there is no phone service contacted number given which was an answering machine on several occasions but no one got back to us. The cottage sleeps 6 but only seating for 4 in main lounge area. The Rayburn didnt work even when reset. Overall cleanliness could be improved chairs and cushions were grubby. In the middle bedroom we found a dead bird behind the bedside cabinet which suggests that thorough cleaning isnt taking place. Even with these issues we had a lovely week away and it hasn't put us off returning next year but will be looking for a different cottage.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The cottage sleeps 5 and there is ample seating for 5 guests. Unfortunately the WIFI was damaged as a result of the bad weather and is working again now, we apologise for any inconvenience.
