  • "Beautiful old house with spectacular views."

    The interior furniture and carpets were tired and could do updating. Paint peeling from the walls in numerous rooms but on the whole a good weekend.

  • "Thank you so much!"

    We couldn’t have asked for more! The house was beautiful! Equipped with everything we needed. It was clean and fresh and the welcome tray was thoughtful and welcoming. The access key was easy to locate and the car parking was great and made it easy to load and unload the car. The house is beautiful: the decor perfect; we especially loved the painting and photos of the house and surrounding beaches. The garden was fantastic and felt safe and secure. The views were incredible! Thank you so much for sharing Plas! It was my son’s 21st and sister in laws 50th birthday celebration weekend! The atmosphere in the house felt, happy, cosy and inviting! For such a big house: it didn't feel cold or spooky :) Hopefully we will visit again one day! Thanks again! X

    The property is very spacious and extremely well equipped. Located in one of the prettiest areas of Anglesey and a short walk to a gorgeous sandy beach where we swam (January !)played rounders and tag. There are great walks in all directions from the property and a fantastic pub to visit on the way back ! Many thanks, Mary

  • "Great stay overall."

    The central heating seemed to be on a timer which we couldn’t change and there was electric heaters dotted around so made us wonder if it was quite old and wasn’t working as it should. It was warm in the main lounge/ kitchen with the fire, however our group had small babies with us. 3 under 1 and it was very cold in the night, we slept with our baby in the bed as I felt it was too cold in the room for her in her crib so that wasn’t ideal as we wouldn’t do co sleeping normally but I was worried about her. The weather was relatively mild too over new year so it could have been a lot colder. As adults under the sheets though it was fine! House is a good layout for big group and well equipped, everything you need in the kitchen to make meals. A little tired here and there furniture wise but comfortable and cosy, we had a great stay and there was lovely views and walks from the house. We really enjoyed our stay overall. One thing to note if taking young children, the walls are thick stone so the signal on baby monitors is very weak- all 3 different baby monitors had this issue so they had to be left in the hallway and we had to keep going out frequently to check the monitors so harder to relax in that sense. Would return as a group of adults but perhaps not with younger babies unless in summer when it wouldn’t be cold. Nice welcome package on arrival! Great to read about the history of the house, house is very spacious too.

    It was spotless. Great location. It would help to locate the house if there was a sign near the road.

  • "I'll start with the only geniune complaint we had."

    The strict 18:00pm entry time needs sorting, especially as with our winter booking you've lost daylight before you arrive. That said you know you're on to a winner when the only fault you can find is a lack of pint pots to poor your bottle of real ale or draught Guinness in to in the selection of glasses. Plas was the ideal accommodation & base for my 50th birthday weekend with friends, chosen in part for it's proximity to the White Eagle where the food on Saturday night did not disappoint. My partner & I then spent the rest of the week exploring the island, had a walking day up Snowdon & even a drive down to Portmeirion which was in easy reach. Really liked Plas & wouldn't hesitate to go back again some time.

  • "A comfortable large house which is great for a group of friends."

    We were 8 all over 70. It is generously equipped. Small housekeeping issues were sorted promptly. On a clear day the views are sensational. Lots of walks from the house to the beach and cliffs. And a great pub round the corner. Yes would really recommend the house. For the less mobile there is a downstairs bedroom but it is a high bed and a low lavatory. Just workable for me!

  • "Lovely big old house with lots of character in a great location."

    However, there were a few unwelcome and unexpected issues. Firstly the fridge and freezer in the utility room were filthy and I mean filthy, we had to thoroughly clean and disinfected both before they could be used, not something you want to start doing to that degree, especially when you could only check in at 6pm. The settees in the living/ dining room were dirty, old and uncomfortable and needed replacing a long time ago, along with the stained carpet. Some TLC needed in this lovely old house. All that said, we had a great family holiday and could have stayed longer.

    My only problem was the thick duvets with windows that don’t open ( awaiting repair since our visit in 2019) so we were too hot at night.

  • "Beautiful location, comfortable accommodation, comfy beds, powerful showers and plenty of space for the family to spread out."

    We were very lucky with the weather and made full use of the lovely picnic table overlooking the sea from where we could watch the jets from RAF Valley. Spectacular coastal walks, great for dogs and we saw plenty of wildlife including seals. One of our party is a keen photographer and got up early to capture the sunrise from a local vantage point. Great to have a gastro pub in easy walking distance. Would love to return.

    Our only complaint is that there was no high chair after we asked for one. The large knives could do with sharping..

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry to hear that the highchair was not present. Please always call if there is a problem such as this and we will always get it rectified for you. So pleased you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

  • "THIS IS OUR SECOND STAY AT Plas, the scenery is stunning, the house quietly grand but comfortable."

    We cooked every night and the facilities were great,we enjoyed the log burner on the October nights and the roaring fire added to the house's charm. My Mum slept downstairs which was perfect as she struggles with mobility, however she found it difficult to get in and out of the very high bed, whilst the mattress was really comfy its height contradicted the nature of an accessible bedroom. Thankyou for the stay, Plas is truly magical.

  • "The shower in the downstairs en-suite was not working."

    We had specifically chosen the property for my mum's 80th birthday so she could have a room / shower downstairs. Looking back at previous reviews it is now clear the shower hadn't been working in August and so had not been fixed. Did the caretaker think guests wouldn't notice? When we arrived there was a curtain and pole left on the stairs. We found that one bedroom curtain had come off the wall and just been left. So one room had no curtain all week. None of the upstairs windows opened apart from in one bedroom so no fresh air! Also noted in previous reviews. No instructions for the central heating so we couldn't use it. Other niggles like window blinds broken. For an expensive rental property this was all very disappointing and unacceptable. We rang Sykes Cottages and no caretaker came to check on concerns. (Plumber came and went on Monday.)

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry you were disappointed. The issue you raised with the shower was not an ongoing one and we are pleased the plumber was able to show you that the shower could continue to be used while waiting for the relevant part to be ordered. Plas is a listed building and remedial repair works have been scheduled for the upstairs windows when the property becomes vacant. Windows can be opened at either end of the upstairs area and fans provided for the really hot weather. Guest feedback is appreciated and all issues checked and remedied. Property Owner

  • "It was generally a nice cottage, but could do with a bit better maintenance."

    Toaster and grill not working, shower broken, multiple phone calls had to be made. No instructions on how to use anything, oven knob numbers all rubbed off, wifi not available upstairs. We had our wedding there and quite a few issues with the company subcontracted to deal with the wedding side, to the point that I nearly cancelled the whole thing. Most of the windows didn’t open so it was so hot and no fresh air upstairs.

    Beautiful features. Well appointed 8 minute walk the the beach. Views fantastic. Building perfectly set up. Towels, sheets etc beautifully clean. Kitchen well set up for professional catering. Two fridges, dishwashers etc. Lots of glasses. The house next door had a passageway to allow residing guests straight through (and could be locked). Really was a perfect cosy venue. Central heating system immense. In winter we really didn’t need to light the fires. Pleasantly surprised in the view of the age of the property and wooden windows and doors.

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!
