  • "Pictures did not show entranceway, access to door very disappointing."

    Garden hedge overgrown so view not possible. Fridge not turned on but milk left in it. Visitor pack falling apart no visitors book. General feeling of property being unloved. Dusted areas clearly visible against areas not touched. Did not appreciate the constant reminder of 'things to do before you leave' Felt Cabbage Patch was an afterthought to the other properties.

  • "I was looking forward to staying at Cabbage Patch,having stayed at the adjacent property Plas Bach."

    However I was really disappointed. Just 2 rooms, the bedroom lacking natural light. The garden would have had lovely views had the hedges been cut, and it would have been peaceful if the neighbouring large house, visible through the fence so no privacy, had not made constant noise every day. The cooker hardly heated anything and there were no instructions lt was a pokey little hole. Not worth the money, Get your act together Rhoscolyn Estate it lets the side down.

  • "A beautiful cottage in a lovely setting, based on the coast path away from the road."

    The only thing I have to say that is negative is that it was such a shame that the beautiful arched windows in the bedroom were boarded up, which made the bedroom very very dark. I assume it is for privacy, but blinds or net curtains could be used. It was such a shame, because they are a stunning feature, they would have let in the morning sunshine, and made the bedroom beautifully bright. But the lamps had to always be on.

  • "The photos on the website don’t do it justice."

    When we walked in we both were amazed with everything. Everything was so well presented, comfortable and clean. We had everything we needed. Don’t go there if you want to go nightclubbing.. but if you do want to relax, walk, enjoy the views, the fantastic nature around, and explore Anglesey. A total ‘get away’ from the frantic world. The White Eagle is a must( we booked beforehand) We’d definitely book this cottage again.. it ticked all the boxes As has been said.. the 9am booking out time is a shame.. however, as we left the lady who services the sites had arrived, so it appears it’s needed

  • "A thoroughly enjoyable 3 night stay in Rhoscolyn."

    Great location, lovely views and everything we needed. The arrival-6pm and departure time -9am perhaps cut into our time more than we liked, but otherwise Cabbage Patch was a peach.

  • "We had a really lovely stay - this was perfect for us and our dog, the property was just the right size and really cosy by the fire on a night."

    We absolutely loved being able to walk down to the beach, it was so peaceful and so lovely to have a few different bays to visit. The cottage had incredible views to the sea - we could sit on a morning with a cup of tea outside and look across the beach. The only constructive feedback we’d give would be the check in and out times, 6pm and 9am, whilst we did ask to check in earlier and the owners kindly agreed, we think these should be altered to match other properties and allow people to have more of a full weekend. Using what3words for the location would also have helped us find the property. All in all a really lovely stay and we’d love to come back!

  • "We found the property easy to get to ,clean and well maintained, the bed needs a new mattress as we found it too soft not giving us a good sleep ."

    Also lacking was a hover which would help both tenant and cleaner keeping the place tidy reducing the time spent on the turnaround so people can come in earlier and depart later .

    Very well equipped. Extremely comfy bed. A fence panel had blown down, but was repaired very quickly after a phone call. Could have done with a little more info on rubbish recycling as to what day and what goes where.. We thoroughly enjoyed our break and look forward to returning in the near future. Thankyou

    The living area was dark dismal and cold the overgrown trees next door blocked any sunlight the large windows overlooking garden were covered in cobwebs and the view was obscured due to overgrown hedges the lawn was long and was only strimmed not mowed The small table and chairs outside were rusty The whole cottage needed some TLC The cupboard in the bedroom was opened and we could hear everything next door were saying or doing I had to repair the outside drain pipe which had fallen to the ground

  • "Everything."

    Dirty, shabby, tatty, unkempt. I have sent an email to yourselves, as usual an automated response, not good enough. Health and hygiene should have been a priority, disgusting. In view of the current situation regarding coronavirus we have been compromised and will not recommend you to anyone. If this is what you have to offer for £750 a week, totally unacceptable.

    I understand that some items required maintenance upon your arrival and I am pleased that we were able to resolve these for you. Unfortunately no cleaning concerns had been raised at the time. Cabbage Patch is a very unique property which we understand is not to everyone's taste. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely fantastic week in the Cabbage Patch!"

    The property is located ideally for a short walk up to the coastguard station and Rhoscolyn Bay, and longer walks to Trearddur and South Stack along the coast. Cabbage Patch offers that perfect balance of cosy comfort, with a log burner good to go and all the equipment needed to light, as well as a lovely view and great little garden to enjoy your morning coffee or indeed, afternoon rose! Couldn't recommend more highly and hope we can book next year. Also the cleanliness standards were fantastic and felt really comfortable visiting during a pandemic.

  • "Hob not working."

    Little room in kitchen area to work. Local pub/restaurant closed. No other local eateries. Noisy people in adjoining house, only thin wall between our bedroom and their place. Rude locals.

    Cabbage Patch is a cosy little retreat, that does join up with the larger Plas next door. We don't usually have any problems with noise so we are sorry to hear you were disturbed. The hob is brand new and since been tested with no faults. The instructions are left in the property in case needed. Rhoscolyn is a beautiful and peaceful village which is part of its charm. I can now confirm that The White Eagle is open and if you are looking for more options to eat out, Trearddur Bay and Valley are just a short drive away. Property Owner

  • "The induction cooker hob didn't work properly, everytime we wanted to use the hob we had to turn the cooker off at the mains and switch it back on again for each ring."

    There were only 2 saucepans the size of my hand to cook a Christmas dinner, and for some reason 3 frying pans and 3 sieves. There was a box with cling film and tin foil under the sink as there was on the previous 3 Christmas's we have stayed at your cottages, however on Christmas day when we went to use the foil, there was approximately 3" of foil NOT enough to cover my joint. When I went to cut my Xmas vegetables with "ALL 5 KNIVES " in the knife block there wasn't 1 which was useable, my veg were either crushed or shredded. The dust on top of the plug sockets behind the bedside tables is thick as it is against the skirting behind the bedside tables. The tops of the bedside tables are both damaged, the lampshade on the lamp nearest to the bathroom is broken and has spikes sticking out of the top of the shade. The seating in the livingroom was uncomfortable last year and is even more uncomfortable this year. There was a smell in the bathroom when we arrived which seemed to linger for the week we were there. Although we have spent the last 3 Christmases at this cottage I feel that this will be our last, I don't like change and once I find somewhere nice I will keep returning, however if standards slip then I'm afraid I will find somewhere that I'm happy with and with high standards.

    The features and fittings are just gorgeous. The food we ordered from you was excellent though sadly one of the lamb in suets was all broken up so it overcooked. Slight downsides:- The bed was a bit narrow for us but extremely comfy and we slept well. Only other aspect was that the garden furniture needs a real overhaul. We had to clean it on day one which was not a fun thing to do on holiday. Also TV sound is really poor, like mumblegate! The holiday was perfect. Anglesey is a very special and beautiful island.

    Wi-Fi not working. Telephoned and got a quick response but after man called determined was a BT fault. Not repaired whilst we were there. I know these things happen but this was reported by last 2 guests and it should have been dealt with before we arrived. Lovely cottage and location. Also we requested a tablet for dishwasher as some of the pots and pans were not very clean.

  • "Perfect cottage for two people (and one medium to large dog)."

    What I liked: Well maintained - and clear that owners listen to feedback as ‘grips’ from other guests have been dealt with (e.g. there is now a large frying pan - something that was missing for a previous reviewer). Exceptional clean. Well equipped - liked that basics such as kitchen foil, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid were provided - and welcome tray was very much appreciated. High quality bedding and towels. Views of the bay and mountains in the distance from the large window. Good WiFi and excellent picture on small TV (with basic Sky package) - both a nice touch. Enough space to be more than comfortable, even in the bedroom which was bigger than it looked in the pictures. Secure garden ensuring that our dog could not get out (really important given the number of rabbits and new born lambs immediately outside the property). Fantastic walks / runs on your doorstep (two days we didn’t even use the car). Really nice dog friendly pub five minutes walk away. Super nice locals, including the local farmer who we had a chat with each time we saw him. What I didn’t like: Nothing really - no wardrobe or hangers (although we didn’t really need them and anyway, there wasn’t space for a wardrobe) and the kitchen could do with a garlic press, but that’s about all.

    so comfortable and amazingly it felt quite spacious considering it is only really 2 rooms plus en suite. we loved the log burner which brought the room to life in seconds. views to the coast are stunning, and the walk up the hill and onto the coastal path is fantastic. The White Eagle pub less than 5 min walk is superb - food excellent.

  • "Quirky little cottage which grew on us as the week progressed."

    Major problem with shower cubicle before we arrived could have been a serious issue but a temporary solution was found and didn't spoil the holiday. Some instructions on how to work the central heating timer would have been useful as it took all week to figure it out.

  • "The cottage is perfect for anyone with a dog."

    It’s perfectly comfortable, without being so pristine you worry every time the dog comes in Some things could be improved. Bathroom door sticks, grass needs cutting and it’s almost impossible not to bring gravel in from the passage. Added to the fact that there was no hoover, it was difficult to keep clean during the week. However this sounds negative when in reality we really enjoyed our stay. Bed is supper comfortable and the view is fantastic. Dog walking right outside the front door and a super dog friendly pub just yards away

  • "3 stars is thanks to the location."

    The cottage itself is tired and lacked basic equipment in the kitchen such as a washing up bowl, a frying pan big enough to make a cooked breakfast (the one there is tiny and breakfast consequently had to be cooked in stages) and teaspoons (2 is not enough). The sofa is extremely uncomfortable and the feathers stick through the material and jab you. There were also many cobwebs. The welcome pack was gratefully received.

Beautiful surroundings and close to the town centre if needed, situated opposite a beach a 10 minute walk away. The holiday was perfect and the pup loved it also! The only thing I would comment on is the cupboard in the bedroom is I think next to the neighbours kitchen and dining area, meaning I could hear everything happening. It didn't affect my holiday at all, just a thought for future people staying. Thanks so much :)

The property

Cabbage Patch is a sweet little holiday cottage on Anglesey that makes for a cosy, romantic retreat for a couple.

Inside, the fire keeps things cosy and the seating area outside allows for a little nightcap in the evening.

You’ve got walks on your doorstep and you’re not far from Rhoscolyn beach.

There’s even a brilliant gastro pub, the White Eagle, within walking distance.

Cabbage Patch truly is the ideal couples retreat! You will enter into a lovely open plan living area.

To your left is the cosy seating area with a sofa in front of a sweet little woodburner.

To the right, in front of the large window, is a dining table and chairs, ideal for a leisurely brunch or relaxing supper.

The kitchen is straight ahead and will make self-catering a breeze with a microwave, dishwasher, cooker and fridge. To the left for the kitchen is a walkway which leads through to the double bedroom and an ensuite shower room which also has a loo and wash hand basin. The garden is enclosed and offers an ideal, peaceful place to sit and relax with a book and your glass of wine - maybe even a cheeky Pimm’s on a sunny summer’s afternoon?

The choice is yours! This holiday cottage is in an ideal location for those wanting both relaxation and a fun-filled break- activities, beaches, attractions and fab places to eat are all close by.

If you’re part of a larger party, or looking for a group getaway, Cabbage Patch can be booked with neighbouring Plas, which sleeps 10.

There is also Plas Bach opposite which sleeps a further 2.

It is easily integrated into the living space of Plas if required, but there is a separate entrance to provide a private and romantic getaway for two.

About the location

RHOSCOLYN

Valley 2 miles; Trearddur Bay 3 miles; Holyhead 5 miles.

Located on Holy Island, three miles from Trearddur Bay, Rhoscolyn is a small village with a church and primary school and is the most southerly place on Holy Island. Rhoscolyn also offers an excellent pub on the lane down to the beach, which is renowned for its gastro food, and the beach itself with its slipway, ideal for small dinghies and power boats, is a popular family destination throughout the summer owing to the sheltered cove and gently sloping sands. Also excellent cliff-top walks can be enjoyed and an abundance of wildlife can be seen, often including seals on the headland. Just two miles away is the village of Valley, which has a Post Office, chemist, shops and eating places, plus the nearby resort of Trearddur Bay is situated on the western shore of the island and is truly beautiful with a great sweep of low grassy coastline indented with rocky coves and fine Blue Flag sandy beaches. There are shops, pubs and restaurants in Trearddur Bay itself and nearby Holyhead offers a wider range of amenities, including a very good leisure centre, supermarkets, harbour front, a marina, the world’s second longest breakwater and exciting day trips to Dublin on the ferry. Watersports, bathing, sailing, windsurfing and horse riding are the main activities in the summer months, plus golfers will enjoy the excellent Holyhead 18 hole links golf course, and the area is also a great place for nature lovers with renowned birdwatching at the South Stack Lighthouse RSPB Reserve. An excellent location with plenty to see and do!
