  • "What a lovely property, with great views and hosts!"

    As a family staying here it was perfect for what we wanted - clean, tidy, well equipped and near some beautiful beaches, we didn’t travel far.

  • "We have just returned from our 2nd visit to Pen Y Prys and have already booked our 3rd."

    The cottage is very clean, comfortable, well equipped with spectacular views, a truly peaceful retreat. The owners are more like friends than hosts, on arrival we had a very warm welcome, also a gift pack and lovely fresh eggs off James who has some very entertaining geese, ducks, goats etc. Thank you so much Elaine, John and James for our lovely stay

  • "This little’Wendy House ‘ is just lovely."

    It was really clean and the ‘ Welcome’ supplies were a real bonus. The location is simply stunning (if a little of the beaton track) but even my car got to sit on the beach. The property would benefit from having a dust pan and brush and also the mattresses are a little past their best. The bedding was fresh and clean but has really seen better days and the pillows could do with an update.The use of the washing machine and tumble dryer are a real bonus. The family that own the property were delightful and helpful particularly their son.

  • "Mr and Mrs Rigby and James made our stay so good."

    They were very helpful and left us cake for a treat. Although the accommodation is small and compact, it offers outstanding views and provides a good base to explore. If you are tall, you may struggle with the showers. The kitchen is well equipped, with everything you need, if you choose to eat in. There are several good eating places, which you can walk to along the coastal path. You can also drive to them. We had a fantastic holiday, such a tonic for the soul. Thanks.

    Close to the beach and interesting walks. The family have chickens, runner ducks and goats which we watched morning and evening. The weather was not brilliant but the cottage was so homely and comfortable we didn't mind too much. Lovely family who made us very welcome. We shall return and definitely recommend this property.

    The accommodation was very good and we would like to return but will not 'knowingly' book with Sykes again. I doubt this feedback will be published, but if it is, it will be one point in Sykes favour for being helpful in the end.

  • "Pen-y-prys has one of the best views you could hope for!"

    There must be lots of people in their £1m+ properties around Ynys Môn wishing they could've built their fancy places here. But Pen-y-prys has more in other ways too - it has character. It's not something laid on especially for visitors but it's still great to watch the numerous and entertaining runner ducks as they're released every morning and go back inside every evening, plus the many other birds like the French hens, the geese, the cockerel, the hens and also the donkeys. And whilst there's privacy at Pen-y-prys it also has very friendly owners when you see them from time to time. Headroom is a little restricted upstairs with the sloping ceilings and baths or sit-down showers are the order of the day, but generally speaking there's plenty of space to spend a week away from home in comfort. Highly recommended.

  • "Another great week at Pen Y Prys even at the start of the Corona Virus before the restrictions fully came in."

    Even with some places getting ready to close still enjoyed the walks & scenery of the island & on the doorstep beach. Our hosts very caring & friendly & not only did we enjoy the antics of their ducks & geese but the amount of bird life on the shoreline & was chuffed to see the migrant Dark Bellied Geese at high tides. Definately will be booking here again.

  • "This delightful, well-designed and immaculate cottage is a treasure."

    The location could not be more beautiful - the very last dwelling before the spectacular beach - and the owners are really lovely. We received such an easy and warm welcome, with milk in the fridge and cake on the table, and our entire experience was one of peace and calm and charm. The little adjoining field is home to some award-winning runner ducks and chickens, and it was an unexpected bonus to see these comical creatures - fascinating to watch, and judging by the enthusiastic comments from one and all in the Visitors' Book, we're not alone in being completely enchanted by them. This is the kind of place you find yourself wishing you could stay in forever - just perfect! Pentraeth is a lovely part of Anglesey, and it is within easy distance of so many stunning and interesting places. This time we visited the striking and massive Caernarfon Castle, and enjoyed the many informative displays now housed within it. We even had a rainbow, just to put the icing on the cake of a wonderful stay!

  • "The listing clearly shows wifi and smart tv of which neither are provided."

    We wouldn't have booked this place had we known this. As this was our Xmas break we particularly wanted the treat of a smart tv to watch films. We needed wifi to be in video contact to share time with our close family in Australia, my elderly parents in UK and our close friends in South Africa who were having a week of celebrations prior to getting married. We couldn't share in any of our friends and family moments by video link from the property and were extremely disappointed. We would not have booked this property had the listing been accurate regarding these. I spoke to the owner and he confirmed that there was no wifi other than that of their attached house, which rarely works as they are at the end of a limited band width supply. He was surprised that the tv might show films on net flix as he didn't think the tv could do this - so why is a smart tv listed? The wifi wouldn't support any video call at all and was mostly unavailable, I checked it with a wifi meter app and rarely did it bump onto one out of five bars and was usually shown as unavailable. The owner explained that wifi rarely works at this place due to no band width being available, a problem he had previously brought up with his broad band supplier which he was aware had not and could not be resolved. At this property we couldn't receive our own wifi on various devices and the phone signal was low so we were left out of sharing our usual and expected on line face to face enjoyment of our friends and families celebrations. I did manage to get one film to show on the tv on my Netflix account on the tv but this kept band wheeling and was impossible to repeat due to no wifi signal being available throughout the rest of our stay. The photograph of the side view of the property we found misleading as both of the access doors shown are doors into the owners much used utility area, loo and store cupboard with an adjoining internal door to the holiday property lounge, which take up quite a bit (?one third?) of the ground floor area but this isn't explained. The holiday property is accessed through the patio doors only. Apart from the expectation that the ground floor was the footprint of the property rather than just the much smaller area, the property itself was great as were the owners who are usually close by, attending to the many ducks, chickens and geese and two goats.

    Thank you for taking the time to write feedback. As mentioned we are looking to improve the WiFi service available but are frustrating confined by the network. The mobile signal is dependant on the providers and again is affected by the geographical landscape of the island. If you have any questions regarding these services in the future please do call for advice. Property Owner

About the location

RED WHARF BAY

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.
