  • "The location was great, near a lovely beach and walking distance to a good pub for meals."

    Views from the cottage were fantastic. The garden was secure for our dogs which was great. Loved the cottage, only negative is the kitchen is much smaller than the photos show. Overall a great place to stay!

  • "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

  • "Lovely 300 year old cottage in a fabulous location."

    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

  • "Upstairs was ok."

    Downstairs was very dark with very poor lighting and the floors required a good clean.Could do with brightening up. I would doubt if the kitchen would pass an environmental check.The work tops were full of cracks and dirty,with cobwebs in the corners.Some of the unit doors were hanging off. The natural garden around the cottage was full of weeds and various plastic bags and broken plant pots . Could do with a serious tidy up. Would not recommend this cottage for elderly people or a young family

  • "The cottage was quirky, warm and cosy."

    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.

  • "Really well equipped cottage."

    Plenty of room for us and easily able to allow us to have all of our meals there. The building was a little tired and could do with some T.L.C. Great location for exploring the island and a wonderful view across the fields to the bay.

  • "Buck cottage is in a outstanding area of natural beauty with easy access to the rest of anglesey and snowdonia."

    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. The cleaner has confirmed that there was no dead bird in the house when she left but we would have been happy to remove this had we been informed. Property Owner

    Perfect cosy cottage about a 15 min walk to Red Wharf Bay. Local shop and garage 5 min walk from the cottage for any bits and pieces you need. I can’t recommend anything as the cottage has it all. Oh on the way down to red wharf bay there is a cottage that sells homemade jams and chutney. Well worth stopping by!

    Being so close to the beach was fantastic and the views were stunning. We were able to access lots of different walks and areas easily, the sign posts were clear and the coastal walks were superb. Our dogs felt very at home and could play happily in the garden. Many thanks for a really successful week exploring Anglesey.

    We visited at the end of October and the weather was cold, so the log burner was very welcome! Although a little tired in places, the cottage is characterful and clean, with very comfortable beds. Red Wharf Bay is beautiful and there are many more lovely places to visit nearby.

  • "The cottage was perfect, a few minor tweaks and it would be excellent."

    The patio doors wouldn't open. The middle bedroom window wouldn't open. The oven needs replacing. There was never any hot water to wash up. The water had a funny taste to it from the tap so we bought bottled water for brews. No can opener. No Hoover. And the seating outside needs updating. Aside from these niggly bits and as well as them I'd still move in tomorrow!!!!!!!! Loved it.

  • "Quirky old cottage which was great to stay in, cosy at night with the log burner on & the views from the back of the property were amazing but the cottage furniture downstairs was very tired & a little ramshackle in some cases also the staircase was loose at the top and not secured in the wall properly!"

    Overall given it 4 stars as the good outweighed the bad & location is great - pub up the road was brilliant with great food. Loved Anglesey I do think they charge too much for the hire of towels (£32 for 4) !!

  • "Lovely cosy cottage, well equipped, and we really felt at home."

    A little niggle was the description on Menai rentals they omit to say that to access one of the double rooms you have to go through another double bedroom "with no doors" which was an issue for us, as we had friends staying and they had to stay in the smaller room with a 4'bed!! Also the cleanliness of the cottage furniture was dusty and cobwebs around every room!

About the location


Beaumaris 6.5 miles.

Along the northeast coast of Anglesey is the very large (4.5 mile-long) bay of Red Wharf Bay; its Welsh name of Traeth Coch (Red Beach) rining true as the area is renowned for its glorious sunsets. The bay is very shallow, and at low tide almost 10 square miles of sand is uncovered to provides safe bathing, perfect for 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 3 miles away is the delightful medieval town of Beaumaris, which boasts a 13th century moated castle, lovely buildings housing excellent shops, olde-worlde pubs, restaurants, bistros, museums, as well as a golf course and exciting pleasure boat and sea fishing trips. This is a beautiful location on the east coast of the picturesque Isle of Anglesey.
