  • "My second time staying at Ty Woods."

    It is in a lovely location just a five minute walk from Rhoscolyn Beach and with the whole south/west of the island within easy reach. Shopping for provisions is good with two stores a short drive away and a Tesco Extra a 15 minute drive. There's a dog friendly restaurant/pub just 200yds away (book in advance - the White Eagle is always busy, even in off season.) The cottage itself is spacious, clean, tidy and well presented with everything you could need for a comfortable week away. In particular the kitchen now has a dishwasher (bring tabs) washing machine and tumble dryer plus the usual accessories. In the lounge I see the TV has been upgraded since my last visit and is now a large screen Hitachi complete with a basic Sky TV package. There is a Netflix link on the remote and if you already have the service at home you can log into your account here to use whilst away from home, but don't forget to log out at the end of your stay! All in all, a lovely week away. Thank you!

  • "What a fantastic week, the weather was beautiful, the views from the property are panoramic and the only thing I didn't find in the kitchen was a sieve, very well equipped."

    Make sure you take the basics as there was no welcome pack at all and you are miles from shops. There wasnt the expected fire starting pack. when I asked about it I was told it was stopped to prevent spreading Covid however 2 brand new copies of magazines were provided, puzzling choice. Lovely spot, cracking views, could do with sprucing up.

  • "If you want a break of everything is perfect."

    It is a really quiet location. You only need to be careful with the roads, there is only space for 1 car at a time. The cottage is really cute, but you need to update the pictures on your web.The bedrooms were enough for an holiday and had plenty of storage. In the kitchen we could find everything that was great. It needed to be a bit more cleaned, there was lots of cob webs especially in the leaving room. Because the floors are so light they get dirty quick we end up buying a mop and cleaning frequently. The weather wasn’t to great and we find out that 1 of the windows in the living room couldn’t get shut, and we forgot to mention when someone come to the door and asked if all was ok.

    We found the seating uncomfortable for us at our age, the leather suite was too low and the other sofa too nigh and too far back to sit in it. The leather suite had a cover on which was well and truly stuck and surely should have been washed between visitors The lighting in the cottage was four pairs in the lounge - of which only one bulb working in each pair making 4 lamps in total. In the kitchen the front three lamps one was not working where the back 3 only had one bulb working. We did not appreciate the beautiful views around affected by the hideous, wreck of a caravan which from your photo showed no sign of its decrepit and disgusting state. We appreciate the lady owner is ill, housebound and receiving home care but I am only just mobile after a fall and I had a job with two sticks getting over the gravel from the car to the cottage, I would suggest that other less mobile visitors were pre-warned.

    Ty Wood cottage is in a quite location but only 10 minutes drive from shops and 20 minutes from things to do. It as beautiful views of the sea and an abundance of wildlife. The cottage is well equipped and very clean. The owners are very welcoming and friendly and you can used the field next to the cottage to exercise your dog which is very handy. There is a pub just a few minutes walk which is dog friendly and the staff were welcoming. Will definitely be visiting again.

  • "What a fantastic place!"

    We could happily move here for good. Rhoscolyn is a fabulous base from which to explore the coastal path. It was a bit to cold (February) to sit on the decking for breakfast and dinner but the views and wildlife are an added bonus. This is one of our top holiday stays and can’t recommend it highly enough.

  • "We complained, nothing happened."

    The place was reasonable but grubby, filthy and neglected. Shame as location was perfect. It is at odds with your image. Have now moved to South Wales to another cottage for the next week and it is chalk and cheese, clean, well furnished and homely, what I was expecting from Sykes, sadly not be.

  • "This was a lovely cottage in a lovely location with views of the sea and Snowdonia from some windows and from the decking."

    It was great to be so close to the beach. The owner was friendly and helpful and lives next door, though we didn't actually know that at first so that could have been made clearer, unless we missed something in the pre-stay emails. The oven wasn't working but she had already asked an engineer to see to it and that happened as quickly as practicable given it was a bank holiday. A couple of minor things- a full size cafetiere or coffee maker would have been good as we were 4 coffee drinkers and there was only a 1 cup cafetiere. And the shower leaked through the join onto the floor. Not big things but just to mention.

    Situated just across from the owners property but totally peaceful and restful. The owner was on hand with some general advice and local knowledge but was totally unobtrusive.10 minutes walk to a nice, dog friendly beach and just 2 minutes from one of the best pub/restaurants (also dog friendly) in the area. A visit it highly recommended.

    Views are wonderful which meant we rarely had the tv on. Walk in shower was top notch. Kitchen well equipped. Plenty of wood for lighting the fire three nights although we only lit it on two occasions. Mobile phone signal not good......... perfect :-) although we missed the turn off at first and couldn't ring to see where we had gone wrong fortunately going back up the road it was more obvious. Wifi was handy for keeping in touch with people. V short walk to the pub which was excellent and the beach was wonderful. Would not hesitate to come back.

  • "We have been renting cottages in the UK for a number of years now and we can honestly say that Ty Woods is one of the best value for money cottages we have stayed in."

    The cottage itself was very roomy inside, had two good-sized patios outside and a field alongside which our dog Pip loved. The location was perfect: hidden down a quiet country lane two minutes from a lovely beach and even closer to one of the best pubs on the island. The views from the cottage looking out towards the beach were fantastic and the cottage was easily the best equipped we've ever stayed in. Carole Ann was the perfect host, friendly yet just letting us get on with our holiday without any fuss. We don't often re-visit cottages but we will definitely be returning to Ty Woods.

    The cottage was quaint and location perfect, 1 minute walk to the pub and just a couple of minutes to the beach with lovely coastal walks and country walks in all directions. The garden was not enclosed but had lovely decking outside the lounge and the only snag we had was that there was no gate to keep our dog safe from running off, although our dog always stays close by to us it would have been nice just to let him walk around the decking area without having to keep an eye on him continuously. But all in all we would definitely return as everything else was perfect.

The property

This lovely, single-storey detached cottage is situated opposite the owners' home, in the scattered village of Rhoscolyn, on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.

Ideal for families or friends, this cottage is superbly located for access to the beach and coastline, which is just a two minute walk from the cottage, and even closer to the popular country inn visited by guests from miles around.

As you step into the hall you will immediately feel relaxed by your surroundings, with a door leading through to the fitted kitchen in front of you, which will provide you with all the requirements needed for a family holiday.

A welcoming sitting room offers views across grassland to the beach and beyond, and comfy sofas with a warming woodburner adds further character and atmosphere to the room, and will have you kicking off your shoes and warming your toes in front of the stove after a paddle in the sea.

A small step from the hall takes you down into the dining room, where you can sit and relax with home-cooked food and a fine bottle of wine, enjoying good company long into the evening.

Two bedrooms lead off the dining room, a twin bedded room and a master double room with en-suite toilet and sliding glass doors leading onto a small patio and decking area, which is slightly elevated to make the best of the views to the sea, and affords an ideal spot to enjoy a refreshing drink whilst watching the sun go down at the end the day, or dine alfresco using the barbecue.

Rhoscolyn beach is sandy and safe, located in a sheltered shallow bay, ideal for small dinghies and canoes, and will offer hours of enjoyment for children, crabbing or snorkelling around the rocky cliffs.

Alternatively, perhaps a stroll along the headland is more your thing, in which case you will be delighted to discover the 125 miles of Anglesey Coastal Path which runs past the beach.

Ty Woods Cottage is in an excellent location for a memorable seaside holiday, whatever the time of year.

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!
