  • "This property has the absolute WOW factor."

  • "Fantastic property ,welcoming host ,just a few hiccups during our stay ."

    Most of the week we were without a grill ,although Michael the owner did send an electrician but almost as soon as he left the problem was not resolved. Also the outside seating is very uncomfortable we were unable to make the most of the views. Nowhere to hang wet towels etc and approach to property is confusing two families two sat nav,s we were both directed the wrong way ,we would probably return if a hot tub was installed

  • "Beautiful house - deceptively large!"

    Spectacular views, comfy beds, stunning wildlife. We enjoyed watching the wild rabbits, partridge, pheasants, shelducks and egrets from the windows. The laundry airer was broken on arrival and, as others have said, a garden line or airer would be a great addition especially for washing out towels or swim stuff after a trip to the beach. Garden furniture could do with updating but did not impact on our stay. Kitchen had everything we needed. The cake on arrival was appreciated. The Ship Inn a short drive (or walk at low tide!) is a great spot for lunch in the sunshine. Fish and chips from Benllech on the first night was a treat and it's only a short drive to Beaumaris or Newborough beach for a lovely day out. We also ordered a tesco delivery for the first night so no need to go out and do a grocery shop. Thoroughly enjoyed our week and I suspect we will be back!

  • "We stayed at the property during April 2024 and found that the property met and exceeded our expectations."

    The location is fantastic with a panoramic view out of all front windows over Red Wharf Bay (a camera would never do the view justice). The property has great accommodation, is well furnished and maintained and easily accommodated 5 x adults and 2 x children. The only slight minor point to mention is that the owner left a note asking not to adjust the temperature controls as they are quite complicated but on occasion we found the property to be too cool and needed to use the wood burner but this wouldn’t stop us staying again.

    Everything about Pen Y Bont Bach is perfect; Location - right on the seafront. Great walks and fantastic views. Property - everything and more. Super king size bed and multiple other bedrooms for any medium group size. The beds are extremely comfortable. The sheer size of the property is not justified on Sykes. It is extra large and very homely. The cottage has 4 bathrooms, 2 walk in showers and a bath. 4 toilets in total. The property is all ground floor (one very small step to front entrance) and the back entrance is flat. Every window gives exceptional views. The front of the property is entirely beach. The back view is countryside. Cleanliness was excellent and you can see care and effort has gone into the property. We were glad to see the 9am check out has changed to 10am. Owner - very pro active, caring and helpful. Accomodated us with little notice. Michael was always available should we of needed him. He is one of the best owners we have ever met. VERY Dog friendly - lovely garden and the entire property is tile floors with underfloor heating - so easy to clean. A hosepipe outside for cleaning the dogs was provided. All in all - this property is excellent. If Sykes had a Platinum collection - for sure this would be included. We have fallen in love with Pen Y Bont Bach and will definitely be back for sure. Thank you for having us and we hope to be back soon. Sadly it's fully booked for a while now but should the owner read this and receive a cancellation - please get in touch with us to come back.

    We did not allow our holiday to be spoilt by the following, lights hanging out of ceilings and mirrors, or bulbs that needed replacing, all of which we felt should have been checked before we arrived. we were not allowed in the property until 5 pm and previous guests had left at 9am, there was plenty of time to clean fridges, dust and remove cobwebs. We were disappointed with the lack of outside seating, although the property was for seven we only had five chairs, two of which were broken, fortunately we spent only a short time at the property.

    Owner was responsive to a query and kindly popped to visit us, which was appreciated and it was also good to meet with him. Location is spot on, and it is sensible to note tide times if doing the long coastal walks adjacent to the house. The house had every amenity that we could think of and was very spacious. A nice place that we would consider staying at again.

    Owner was responsive to a number of problems we encountered, e.g. no hot water on first night, bin that wouldn’t close. However, some concerns were not resolved, i.e, there was evidence of a wasps’ nest (our infant granddaughter was stung) as wasps appeared everyday, external waste bins were full and the grill failed after the first night. Having to vacate by 9.00am on the last morning, with a group of seven was challenging. We did enjoy our stay in Anglesey.

  • "A lovely house in the most gorgeous location."

    We really enjoyed our week - a return visit as we stayed in the house last year. There was an issue with the hot water which the owner sorted out very promptly. A few niggles we noted last year: it's incredibly irritating that social media is blocked; apart from the living room there are no rugs as shown in the house details which would make the house a bit cosier. Again the towel allocation was rather mean - a hand-towel as well as a bath towel should have been provided. The dishwasher didn't have any salt or rinse-aid so we filled it up with both in order to clean properly.

  • "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

    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.

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.
