  • "We loved our stay at Point Lynas Lighthouse (East Cottage) and would return tomorrow if we could!"

    The location is second to none and the view out of the dining room window is fabulous. The cottage is comfortable and has everything you need. From the headland, you can observe birds, seals, porpoises and dolphins - and at the bottom of the road is a nice little bay with a small sandy beach from which you can gain access to the sea; we launched our kayak from here. 10 out of 10!

  • "A very well located property right on the coastal path with excellent wildlife viewing and walking opportunities."

    The owners are friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive, with plenty of tips as to what we could do on Anglesey. We hope to be able to return before too long!

  • "Beautiful location with amazing views and friwndly neighbours (the horses) comfy beds,cosy living room with a lovely wood burner and well stocked kitchen."

    The smaller bathroom needs a bit of an update and the whole place could do with curtains as it's very drafty when it's windy,however we would all visit again and recommend it without hesitation.the owners were friendly ,accommodating and helpful when we couldn't work out the oven.All in all we had a great time in a gorgeous part of the world.

    Just as magical as the first. The best place on earth to chill and recharge our batteries. The porpoises were still at the front of the lighthouse, Seals at the beach. Watching the ships come and go was fascinating too. Lovely hosts. We’ve booked our next visit. Thanks Robin and Iona.

    Hi Tina, thank you for your lovely feedback. See you soon! Robin Property Owner

    A decompressing week spent with our family, lots of cooking, walks, beachcombing and relaxing. The owners were very engaging, shared homemade cakes and flexible. Thank you once again. :)

    It was warm and well appointed. Great views. Bring binoculars if you have them - the sea-life you can see from the dining table is spellbinding. Great access to Anglesey coastal walk and a safe swimming beach for all who like a cold water swim :-)

  • "This was our second stay here."

    Our first being in September 2020. The accomodation gives us everything that we need and is in a very secluded location. Robin, the property owner is a very agreeable gentleman and lives in the main property. There is not really much to say, other than that we had a great week here and would stay again.

  • "We had a delightful stay in the East Cottage."

    Magnificent views from the dining room window that you just can’t take your eyes off, along with the next sighting of the dolphins, seals or birds are just amazing and you get many. Having the headland on your doorstep is something to be remembered forever. The atmospheric cottage offers all you need for a stay. The central heating worked well along with the hot water and the option of the log burner an added bonus. The onsite owners are so welcoming and committed to making your stay the best it can be. If you love wildlife and want a break away for it all, then this is the place.

  • "Firstly both the ownership and Sykes, were kind enough to postpone our initial holiday to the following year with pretty much the same weeks due to the pandemic."

    This is my second visit to this site, I stayed in the west cottage the first time to which I praised it and said i would return. We chose the east this time around as we decided we wanted a quiet holiday after doing all the local attractions the first time around, and also bring our dog. I think it is an excellent idea to have one pet friendly and one no pets, giving a diverse opportunity to stay. As I have stayed in both it would be fair to list the differences. If you like big open spaces and extremely large kitchens, stay in the West. If you like individual rooms and happy with a small kitchen, stay in the East. Personally I preferred the East. It is also fair to mention that the west has a bath and the east doesn't, should that be important to anyone. As always the owners were brilliant, they always take time to talk to you and engage in conversations, they are a lovely couple. Overall if you want peace and quiet and a total chill, this is definitely the place to go. We have decided to make it our preferred UK location and will be returning 2022, however we may try a winter period as we have done 2 summers holidays, and I'm very in touch with photography, so would like to see some stormy waters instead of calm. Bonuses, Dolphins, seals and birds of prey can be seen swimming around the lighthouse.

    We have been looking to stay here for a while, but we found it hard to book because it's always booked up. Anyway from start to finish the owners looked after us and very informative if you need any info—nice little touches when we arrived. This is definitely one of the best places we have stayed, and I can see any it is always hard to get a free slot to book it. If I had to leave one negative, it would be that we had to leave this amazing property. :-)

    Absolutely exceeded all our expectations. Cottage is well set out and fully equipped and the views were spectacular. We walked the coastal path in all directions, saw dolphins, porpoise, seals and a great variety of birds. Robin and Iona were great hosts. My only slightly negative comments - no mention of central heating and freezer in the information.

  • "We took my disabled mother and the only thing I would mention is that there are a couple of high steps at the back and front entrances."

    Once inside there were no problems. The weather definitely was not kind to us but that made the experience great!! The views are amazing and we spent hours looking out to sea trying to spot seals or porpoises. We were lucky enough to spot both. The East cottage is homely and comfortable. The beds are really comfortable. As I said the weather was not kind but hearing the wind howling inside and out was great... although it did make the windows and doors rattle a lot. The heating is very good. There are extra blankets and hot water bottle if you feel that you need it but we definitely didn't. The wildlife is fantastic and with horses grazing right outside the window whilst looking out for the sea life was delightful. Lovely sunsets and sunrises too. Try and take your own binoculars with you. You can be a bit picky but the lighthouse has everything you need for a great holiday. We loved our week long stay and have fallen in love with Anglesey. Thank you Robin and Iona

    Robyn and Iona made us feel like we were visiting family. Off the beaten path but accessable to virtually anything we needed. Quiet and serene, and we really appreciated being able to have a fire in the evenings (we're from the Arizona desert and any temperature below 60 F is a bit chilly for us). If I had to have a complaint, I guess I would like to see more cats. They only have one full-time cat and one stray, both of whom are very shy, and I'd love to see at least two more--but then I'm very fond of cats.

    They were friendly, considerate, attentive and kind. The lighthouse is in a beautiful setting and we were able to explore Anglesey and North Wales to our heart's content. We saw porpoises. We also saw Choughs. It was a great place to be for a fortnight. We did get caught up in storm Hannah. We spent a Saturday at the lighthouse without being able to go anywhere. Rather fun! I would recommend the lighthouse as a venue for a holiday. I love lighthouses and this has added to my delightful collection of memories of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Yorkshire, and Norfolk. So many lighthouses and so little time!

  • "Unusual and characterful accommodation."

    Wonderfully clean throughout. Warm and charming welcome and thoughtful provision of Welsh cakes and milk, much appreciated. Having been there during Storm Callum, it was exciting albeit very noisy from the wind. The wind whistling through and shaking the windows, well everything really, and torrential rain certainly made their presence felt so although ‘calm relaxation’ wasn’t the order of those few days, I certainly gained some experience of what it must have been like in a storm when the cottage was in its original use, and could see for myself the power of angry weather! But for me, that all added to the break and I loved it! So I had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Having instant access to the headland was fantastic and seeing the porpoises having a party despite the weather was a real treat! I’d definitely recommend the cottage (just recognise that it’s in an exposed position and be prepared to be flexible if there is bad weather). I would certainly go back again myself.

    Location is wild and dramatic and the cottage is comfortable and attractive. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Views are great and we enjoyed a number of evenings watching the sunset over the sea , with a bottle of prosecco, on the bench above the little shingle beach. This year we even saw a baby red squirrel who had come to explore the lighthouse. Harbour porpoises just off the coast most days and wonderful wild flowers on the headland. A wonderful holiday.

    Cottage was clean and comfortable. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Saw porpoise and stonechats from the window. Some fab coastal walks on the doorstep. Stayed with 3 other adults, child and 2 dogs and property was ample in size. Minor things; bed in double room (by front door) very creaky. Some damp in places but would expect this as by the sea. Rest of house was lovely and we will hold some very special memories of this holiday.

  • "The living and bedroom accommodation was good."

    Had we had children with us I would have been concerned about the embellishments on the headboards of the twin beds. We were only 4 guests and found the kitchen rather cramped and particularly the size of the fridge. It would certainly not hold sufficient for more than 2 or 3 days if there were 6 people. We could not get the TV to work and there were no obvious instructions, the note in the booklet was not sufficiently helpful, this was not a problem for us as we were only wanting to catch up on news. We were told broadband was available but it was very unreliable. However, the siting of the property was excellent and we enjoyed our week.

About the location

LLANEILIAN

Amlwch 2 miles; Moelfre 7 miles.

A scattered, rural village situated close to the cliffs of Point Lynas and the little bay of Porth Eilian, on the beautiful north coast of Anglesey. Llaneilian stands amidst lovely countryside, which is perfect for scenic walks and cycle rides, but is perhaps best known for its lighthouse built in 1835, and its small, attractive shingle and sand beach, which is sheltered by cliffs and headland making it perfect for swimming, boating, fishing and other water sports. Just 2 miles west is the old port of Amlwch, the most northerly town in Wales, and Parys Mountain, where visitors can enjoy the Copper Mine Trail Walk amidst the old ruins of what was once the world's largest copper mine in the 18th century. Amlwch's harbour dates back to the Middle Ages and once was a thriving port. There is excellent fishing and golf nearby as well as beautiful sandy beaches and spectacular cliff top walks. Enjoy the medieval town of Beaumaris, with its 13th century moated castle, museums, excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, take a day trip into Snowdonia or visit Dublin from the nearby port of Holyhead.
