  • "We had a really relaxing family holiday in this remote and peaceful location."

    The cottage was perfect, clean and tidy and very organised. We were initially concerned due to some negative reviews but the location won us over. We have absolutely no regrets and everything about the cottage was fine and in good working order. All standard requirements are met and there were even plenty games for children and adults. Good walks, sea views, sunsets, wind, rain even some sunshine- we had it all! thank you!

    Hi Josh and family, thank you for your 5* review! We are always delighted hear when our guests have had such a lovely time, and even better if you got some sunshine! The sunsets there are unbeatable. Glad you all enjoyed the games too, but the real enjoyment is the beautiful coastline and countryside :-) Many thanks, Anna Property Owner

  • "We went to stay at Pant yr Hyman 5th to 8th November a family weekend 4 teenagers 4 adults and one grandma when we got there the house was so warm and there was a lovely hamper from Anna the owner, it was such a spacious welcoming house ."

    We went for plenty of walks with the dog, we did not see any cars or people which is what we wanted we did take all our own food but there was plenty of places to go and shop just 5mins. in the car. We all had a really relaxing chilled out weekend it was lovely and thank you Anna for letting us stay in your holiday home Jean Jones

    Hi Jean & co, so pleased to hear you enjoyed the welcome hamper but even better that you had a such a lovely time together. This is what it's all about! It's a pleasure to have you stay and share such a magical place. Thank you also for all the lovely comments in the visitors book and for leaving a 5* review too! Many thanks, Anna Property Owner

    Everything was as described, looks like carpets had been replaced (as noted in previous feedback) would stay again

    Hi Tracey, great to hear you enjoyed your stay! We would of course be delighted to welcome you back in the future. Many thanks, Anna Property Owner

  • "We have communicated with owner about issues experienced during our stay and to be fair, she reacted swiftly in dealing with the issues."

    We liked the location and with a little TLC and some investigation regarding a smell in the ground floor bathroom this property would score higher. Despite the poor weather, we still had a nice time.

    Hi David, thank you for bringing the issues to my attention during my stay and glad we could get everything resolved for you. Following your stay, various improvements and refurbishments were made (the smell was also sorted!), including the installation of a cosy log burner which has been really well received, just in time for winter. After such a busy season a few things had suffered some wear and tear, and I can only apolgise for the hiccups you experienced. I pride myself on providing a comfortable home-from-home environment in a glorious location, and I'm pleased to have been able to address everything. Many thanks, Anna Property Owner

  • "I have rented holiday cottages with Sykes/Menai for years and never been dissapointed with a house until this one."

    Where do I start. I agree with most of what the last reviewer said except the house was clean. The dishwasher was not working and with 10 people in the house it is essential. Washing machine not working also essentail. A baby stairgate with a bolt missing at the bottom so useless! Handles coming off in your hand on bedroom door. Very badly stained carpets, uncomfortable and very shabby furniture. Pat testing on electrical appliances were over a year out of date. This was the most expensive house we have rented from Sykes/Menai and well below their usual standards.

    Thank you for your feedback. The dishwasher has now been replaced and we also have a brand new washing machine. Thank you for reporting the issue with the stair gate. The stained carpets are being replaced in October and the PAT testing also booked in. Whilst we do our best to ensure any issues are addressed as early as possible (helpfully many smaller items can be delivered within a day or two), we need to balance this against avoiding disruption to our guests' holidays having work done on the house during their stay. It has indeed been a very busy season and the house has been extremely well used! Due to back to back bookings, the earliest opportunity for the repairs to take place is October. Please accept our apologies that the house was not up to standard during your stay. In future, we will ensure a break in bookings earlier in the season, to allow for any wear and tear/damage to be addressed more quickly. Property Owner

  • "The location and view are amazing but, a big but, is the house is very tired and needs a deep clean."

    From first impressions as you arrive at the front of the house with the collapsing table, the thread bare door mats and the smell of damp that hits you as you walk in you feel like you have paid too much for the house. As you go through the house you realise it is very tired and needs to be updated. The kitchen was not clean with food splatters on the wall behind the sink, tea and coffee stains on the cupboard doors. The carpets have seen better days and the main stair case is not safe for small children. Also things like the size of the towel rail in the on suite for the master bedroom are baffling, you can only fit flannels on it when there is room for a full size one, there is very little hanging space in the whole property with only coat hooks provided in some rooms, the apps on the tv have not been logged on etc… All in all the location is great but the house needs bringing up to date, perhaps you should look at the Little Fish properties down by the White Eagle or the property you pass through to get to this one, they are the standard that you should be aiming for. We see the prices have gone up for next summer without a serious refresh or rebuild it is not worth it for the view alone.

    Thank you for the invaluable feedback. We are of course very disappointed to read your review as the property is usually very highly rated. Unfortunately, towards the end of the summer season, things do tend to get very well used! We have replaced the indoor mats, and the carpet unfortunately was the victim of a leak and is being replaced in October (and we have a decorator booked). The collapsing table is a hand-made African tripod table, to hold the visitors book and guest information in the hallway ready for your arrival. The cleaning standard is usually exceptionally high (as can been seen from other reviews) and we are pleased that subsequent guests have had a great holiday. We can only apologise that you weren't 100% satisfied with your stay rest assured, have taken your feedback on board. Many thanks. Property Owner

    It is quite remote, best for outdoors type people. Fantastic views. Good beaches are only a few minutes drive away. Minor problem with some kit, but we believe these are sorted now. Takeaway in village needs cash, no deliveries.

  • "We knew we were going to fall in love with Pant Yr Hyman from the moment we spotted it in the distance."

    From it's beautiful clifftop location to the welcoming, comfortable and well equipped interior, the property didn't disappoint in any way. We were able to enjoy gentle walks down to the cove, invigorating swims and rock pool explorations when the weather was fine; wild and windy coastal walks to local pubs when the weather was on the turn; and cosy time hunkering down with family and friends in the property when the weather was more extreme, watching movies, playing games and listening to the sound of the ocean crashing outside. The house enjoys a spot that is surrounded by nature, allowing peace and quiet and stunning views. It feels remote, yet shops and restaurants, pubs and activities are all within easy reach, and for those looking for more adventure and are happy to travel a little further, Snowdonia is reachable in well under an hour. The coastal path literally passes the door and coasteering opportunities are excellent in the area. The house itself was perfect for our family of 4 and our friends' family of 4, with plenty of space for everyone, including a lovely area outside to watch the sunset. The amount of thought that has gone into ensuring that the house has everything you need is evident and it was clear that any minor issues that have arisen over the summer season have been addressed promptly by the owners. Pant Yr Hyman is a real gem to be enjoyed in all seasons and we can't wait to return.

  • "We stayed at Pant Yr Hyman and had a real break from it all."

    The house itself was perfect for our families: comfortable, warm, plenty of space for socialising and a very well provisioned kitchen. The location was perfect, breathtaking views and a sense of remoteness but conveniently located not far for amenities. There is a wonderful coastal walk to the beach and pub. The property owner Anna was very helpful and responsive to any questions etc. Would highly recommend and definitely love to come back again!

  • "Wonderful, spacious and homely house nestled in the midst of the most amazing rocky coastline."

    The location is breath taking and the sound of the sea 24/7 is bliss. With direct access to the coastal walk from the garden you can roam the cliffs, coves and headland as early or as late in the day as takes your fancy. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need which is a pleasant surprise for a holiday home. We have never, ever booked the same holiday home twice but having stayed here I cannot think of anywhere else I would rather be to get a break away from the bustle of everyday life.

  • "Pant yr Hyman Is a beautiful house set up a long private lane and right on the coastal path With stunning views all around,and has a large garden with bench seating and barbecue which were used several times during our stay in October."

    The property is large and very roomy, the kitchen is fantastic and very well equipped,just off this is a utility/drying room with a second large refrigerator and separate freezer along with a microwave oven. The lounge is massive with open fireplace along with a dining table that seats 10 people, next to this is a second lounge/reading room all having access to the outside. All the bedrooms are large and very comfortable with spectacular views of the sea and surrounding area. All in all this is a property that doesn’t stop giving and in our opinion is fantastic value for money.

  • "The house is in a stunning location and the lay out of the house was perfect for our party of 6 adults and 3 children."

    The main bedroom is just amazing!. However we would like to draw your attention to the folllowing 2 x radiators weren’t working The window in the ground floor family bathroom needs insulating. Any heat from the towel rail is completely negated by the cold draft, making the room very cold. Small point . - but the kettle needs replacing.

    Thank you for your feedback and sorry to hear things weren’t 100% during your recent stay. The radiators have now been fixed and we have someone there this week to look into the window - the hinge is a bit rusty (a common problem with all the salt!) so it doesn’t always close very easily; it may have been this but we will definitely get it looked at. We are so pleased you enjoyed the stunning views and the master bedroom, and that the layout worked well for you and your party. Property Owner

    Lovely house. The only issue was the rubbish left by the previous occupant which was still there when we arrived, and no-one collected the rubbish during the week that we were there. The house info stated that someone would come up on Sunday to do this, but this did not happen. We ended up taking all of our recycling to a nearby recycling centre (except the plastic which was not accepted there).

The coastal path and little coves were excellent to explore- we were not ready to come home after a week! Menia Holiday Cottages have provided an easy to use service. They were excellent on our return as i had no idea i had left something of value at the property. I had a call on our way home and it is being posted out to me as i write- thank you.

    The property is very close to the coast with unbelievable views, gorgeous wild flowers everywhere and easy access to the coastal path. The property has two sections to it with two staircases so it's really handy for large groups. It has a well stocked play room, Mamas & Papas high chair, stair gate and travel cot, great for our toddler. Two sitting rooms, again great for large groups, plenty of bathrooms and the kitchen has everything you could need. The master bedroom is huge with stunning views and large windows. You can reach everywhere quite easily by car - Trearddur Bay is less than 10 minutes away, a large Tesco / Morrisons etc is also about 10 or 15 minutes away and Rhoscolyn has a really nice pub. Sykes were brilliant from start to finish, couldn't be happier! Will certainly book again.

  • "The location of the cottage and the views onto the lake are beautifully peaceful, remote and serene."

    However, the cottage itself is in need of some rejuvenation (e.g. new sofa and armchairs needed, water tank above spare room is filling up very slowly and noisily over a long period of time) and the whole place needs a thorough top to bottom deep clean. The drive up to the cottage/ back onto the road is really quite off-road-ish and can easily present an issue for less confident drivers/ not off road suitable cars.

  • "This "cottage", actually a large house, was perfect for us all."

    Part of the house was a great suite of rooms for our daughter, son in law and their 3 children. Another bedroom together with its bathroom worked well for our son and his partner. The enormous master bedroom (and en-suite) was brilliant for us. The large kitchen, lounge with dining area and second lounge worked well for daytime use. Spotlessly clean, well equipped with the most spectacular views and wonderfully quiet.

  • "Super location."

    If the bedrooms had been more equal is standard and had all had storage for clothes (I.e. wardrobes and chests of drawers) we would have given it 5 stars. We feel it isn't reasonable to have to live out of your suitcase. The kitchen was well equipped - enough of everything. It would have been nice if the heating had been on before we arrived as the house was cold and we couldn't get warmed up without any form of secondary heating. There is an open fire but no logs or kindling. After driving 300 miles to get there, we weren't going out to get any.

  • "Pant yr Hyman is in a spectacular position."

    The peace and quiet is almost deafening!! Just what the doctor ordered when life gets stressful. The sitting room had a bit of a 70's vibe to it with the big slate fireplace and teak furniture. Not really to my taste but comfortable enough. We have had two short stays at Lligwy Beach cottage and I adored it there. I think the house needs a bit of updating if I am honest, but it was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Great place for a large group of family and friends and a pretty garden to have afternoon tea in. We loved walking along the coastal path and to the coves in the opposite direction. I think The Famous Five would have a brilliant time here!

About the location


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!
