  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our family weekend in Rhoshelyg ."

    The cake and champagne was a lovely bonus and welcome since my husband was celebrating his 70th.There was an issue with the barbecue but our hosts Alun and Michelle sorted that very quickly . Would definitely consider staying there again.We all loved the hot tub.Maybe a warning should be put in the utility room that there is a step up to the ensuite when you open the door but apart from that everything all good.Diolch yn fawr iawn.

  • "The cottage is on n a really good position, garden is ideal for dogs and children."

    Everything was clean and comfortable but I was disappointed that the Xbox controller wasn’t working, we had to get new batteries and the games were all based at teenage children and older. The box containing board games was also disappointing as the only intact one was Monopoly and the whole thing was a mess which we had to sort out. On a positive note we found the iron wasn’t working and this was replaced immediately for us.

  • "Fantastic views from both the tub and the downstairs bedroom, especially as we had such good weather!"

    ! Perfect location for the beach which is a must see. We had a brilliant weekend, house was perfect for 8 of us and a baby. Lots of thought has gone into facilities, take away lists, there are games and plenty of utensils (we cooked a lovely roast on the Sunday) and the link with all the property details was sooo useful. Owner was lovely and text to say property was ready early which was super handy and meant I could head off early with the little one! Hot tub got lots of use. Was super clean. Bit of a shame we couldn't use it the first night but appreciate that is due to cleaning and heating! If we were to be super picky, more toilet rolls would be useful and the sofa needs a clean/replacement/covers due to a few marks. Otherwise an absolutely perfect weekend for birthday celebrations and we will definitely be back! Thanks so much.

  • "5 stars all round."

    Stayed here in Feb school holidays, 4 adults, 6 kids and 2 dogs. The house was clean, tidy and perfect for us. The house had everything we could need to make our stay comfortable. The hot tub was great, this kept the teenagers entertained. The showers were superb! The garden was all enclosed for the dogs. Unfortunately we timed our holiday with 2 storms which meant a little less sightseeing then we had planned but this just means we will have to return!

  • "We had a great time in Anglesey - the cottage was perfect for the three generations of our family."

    The kitchen was well equipped and the open plan was really useful. Having bedrooms downstairs helped with accessibility for my Mum. The hot tub was roomy with lovely views over the valley and of the horses and sheep in neighbouring fields. Some lovely welcome touches in the fridge from the owners Michelle and Alun and when the kettle stopped working they delivered a replacement that morning. Would highly recommend.

    There was 9 off us in total & we all loved it the kitchen had great facilities & everything you could think off. The online guide book sent before hand was great telling you how to access the property WiFi codes etc. The views from the living room where amazing watching the sun set over parys mountain which was only 15 Mins walk away was great for stretching our legs & tiring our dog out, the garden is all enclosed so really safe for dogs which was an added bonus as was the hot tub after a long walk.The owner Michelle was lovely answering all our questions & letting us know we could check in early into the property. We can’t wait to come back again hopefully over summer & make use off the lovely beaches in the area. If you are looking to get away for Xmas like us with all our family this was perfect for just that so relaxing & chilled & just what we needed

  • "Rhos Helyg was a fantastic place to stay."

    The house is incredibly spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen is huge with all the amenities and utensils you would expect and more, and the lounge area was a great place to spend the evening, with the roaring log fire and enormous sofa. Rhos Helyg was a great base for days out exploring Anglesey's vast and varied beaches, all the ones we went to were within a 20-40 minute drive of the property so an easy drive. After a day of exploring, the hot tub was a wonderful way to relax. The garden was fully secure so we were happy knowing that the dogs were safe playing while we could sit back and soak. Michelle the owner of the property was really great. We got sent an online guide before we arrived telling us the key code, wifi code, travel directions, as well as info about local supermarkets, days out etc which was very useful. Michelle also let us know that the property was ready for us to check in a bit early too which was very kind. And the milk and bottle of fizz in the fridge was a lovely touch. I would highly recommend Rhos Helyg and will definitely return there for another holiday!

    The kitchen is well equipped for all our needs but the utility room was missing a dryer so I had to spin my towels after getting out of the hot tub and put them on the radiator. I would recommend you take extra large towels with you for the lovely hot tub has the ones in the bathrooms are small. I am looking forward to going back again next time in the summer so we can sit out in the garden later in the evening looking over the fantastic views with a bbq and and glass of wine.

The Anglesey coastal path runs past the village and there are the usual amenities associated with a village including post office, village pub, grocers and village school. Less than 5 miles away is the delightful seaside village of Moelfre, boasting little cottages, a picturesque port, a beach, fine views of Snowdonia, a working lifeboat, and two quality pubs/restaurants.
