  • "The master en-suite was fantastic but a pair of robe/bath towel hooks close by would be useful."

    The wood burner was a focal point which we did not use but a light within this area would have emphasised this focal point when fire is not being used. These are suggestions not criticisms. We look forward to returning again. Hair drier in master was useful but not mentioned in literature.

  • "We had a lovely week at Pen y Bony Bach."

    The house is stunning and a lot bigger than we expected. Despite being a large house due to its layout and heating system it was warm and cosy in February. It’s in a quiet spot and just a short walk down the path and straight onto the beach which was full of bird life which can be seen from the house. We got regular visits in the garden from two pheasants and rabbits. Our dogs loved it as well and would often be found by the windows that lead onto the garden watching them. The only slight negative is that the back garden needs to be enclosed with a fence so that children and dogs can be let out into the garden with no worries about them straying or getting hit by occasional farm traffic. Other than that it’s a little patch of paradise and we are already thinking of going back again. Photos of the area will be published on my blog https://escapetothewildside.uk/

  • "Really spacious, the photos don't do it justice at all."

    Generally really good facilities with lots of space so great for a family gathering. WiFi is a little patchy but still usable. Could do with a few extra bowls as only 5 available for a group of 7 but overall really enjoyed our stay.

    Thank you Glad to find all the cleaning products & bin bags. The house worked brilliantly for our 3 generations of adults (with a 15 year old too ) plenty of space,comfortable for all of us. We had a lovely stay ,playing games,watching jools Holland on New Year’s Eve which is a family tradition. All in all it worked very well for us & would certainly recommend the house to others.

  • "We have stayed here 4 times now."

    the last time was 2017. we feel the property is looking tired and in need of some TLC. The paintwork is looking tired and the rug in the lounge needs changing as its rather grubby looking. Also the outside of the property needs attention. The table and chairs need upgrading with a parasol as it gets very hot at the back in warm weather. The metal chairs are rather uncomfortable. Having said all this it would not put us off returning as the property is in a fabulous location and a great size all on one level for people with mobility issues. The cake left for us is a nice touch and a thankyou to the lovely cleaners who were there when we arrived.

  • "The house is in a really lovely location with a gorgeous view of Red Wharf Bay."

    It has a big garden and felt incredibly restful. The beach is never busy and fantastic for dog walks. There are some great walks from the house and you can walk to the The Ship Inn and The Boat House on the other side of the bay. We found it to be very well situated to get to Menai Bridge and it was only 20 minutes drive to Bangor station. We found the house to be comfortable with lots of space, although it is very much a holiday home and has no frills. The house has tiled floors throughout which is quite unusual for the UK, and perhaps could have done with a few more rugs as shown in the profile photos – especially in the bedrooms. We stayed for two weeks, and although those in the main bedroom were given proper bath towels, the rest of us had one small towel each and no individual handtowels. We were expecting these to be changed after a week and had to ask for more which was a bit of a hassle. The Wifi inexplicably has a block on certain websites and all social media which was annoying for those of us who needed to do a bit of work! This is the first holiday home we have ever been to which did not provide a pint of milk and some tea bags on arrival! We had a large cake instead. There were no dishwasher tablets, cleaning fluids or black sacks for the bins. Instructions on rubbish disposal were non existent and the owner specifically asked for no segregation of recyclables, which we undertook ourselves

  • "I really don't want to spend a lot of my time providing feedback for Sykes and for this owner."

    I don't feel that the owner showed hospitality, and I don't feel inclined to provide much free advice on your improvement. I need to say the property is in an idyllic setting and the quality of the build was excellent. However, once we arrived, it became clear that the owner's ideas of hospitality do not align with my ideas of what premium accommodation should provide (£3500 for two weeks). I could provide a long list, but the low-lights are: double beds not joined with incorrect sized and type of sheets/bedding, no bedding change in two weeks, no way to dry bedding if washed, bulbs missing from almost all light fittings, door handles so stiff that it was possible to get trapped in the bedroom, no towel change for two weeks and no way to dry them if washed, no comfortable chairs in the garden, mixed oddments of kitchen utensils, and cheap place mats / equipment. A note asks renters not to use the larger fridge, or the internet!!! We were told shortly before arrival that the exit time would be at 9am, so we felt it necessary to leave the day before, but no mention of a refund of some charges as a gesture of goodwill. We never met the owner, but I inferred a level of arrogance when we noticed that pages from the "complaints book" were ripped out. Remaining entries (no clothes line, door handle difficulties) had been reported five years earlier! One other complaint about the lack of a dryer was met with a snappy response saying there wasn't one with a complaint from the owner about the state they left the property (a comment which I course they would never read - but we did). Please don't contact me, I don't want to think about this any more.

  • "The cottage itself was lovely."

    It is the small things that make a difference. The home comforts need improving on, I.e host making sure there is some milk in the fridge on arrival etc. Really disappointing is the cleanliness. There was a used cotton wool bud and a tampon wrapper left in the main bedroom which I find really bad in terms of cleanliness.

    Plenty of parking.Access lane was very narrow and surprisingly busy.There were minor niggles though.No internet through whole stay ,this has been an ongoing problem mentioned by previous occupants in the visitor book. The kettle was far too small for 7 people,small teapot too small for 7 and large one had no lid.Additional pillows not available or any extra bedding.Only 5 placemats in very poor condition.The seating arrangement for7 adults in the lounge was quite tight too. Dishwasher and washing machine worked well.Excellent bathing facilities.

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.
