  • "The double bed was uncomfortable and probably needs fixing with a new bed designed for people to sleep on without rolling into the middle."

    Also the lack of outdoor chairs was a drawback. The choughs however were brilliant

  • "The location was the prettiest we have stayed at."

    Stunning views, we just sat and stared out of the huge picture window. The cottage itself was lovely but rather tatty and in need of some tlc. There was cobwebs. Cheese puffs under the coffee table. The 2 chairs in the sun room were falling apart. The curtains were all grubby and some hanging off the rails. We had to wash the cutlery as it had been put away dirty. The king size bed was uncomfortable and dipped on 1 side, the sheet was too small and kept popping off and the pillows were flat and need replacing. But we had a lovely sunny week, we love Anglesey.

    Stunning views, beautiful weather and the cottage was so warm, cosy and welcoming. Rustic yes but also like going back in time, we had rabbits, pheasants for neighbours. For us it was perfect. If you want hotel comforts then go to a hotel

  • "Penfor is a true retreat."

    The cottage is very homely, it is not modern and slick so if you are looking for perfection in terms of decoration and furnishings, it is not your bag. The magic for us was its position. It is very private and has amazing views of the countryside and sea. It feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, yet there are some lovely eateries nearby and a pub just up the lane. The mill that is owned by the cottage is a real landmark in the horizon, you feel sort of special when you drive up past it as it's an amazing building. The weather wasn't brilliant when we were there but what I would say is that as the cottage has gardens all around it, there is always a spot that you can find to shelter from the wind coming off the sea. I would imagine that this is absolutely spectacular in the Summer. There is a room right at the end of the cottage that as panoramic views and even on a cloudy day this room is bright and cheerful. There is an ever changing canvas, and the sunsets are amazing. Paul, the owner, is such a lovely man. He rang us as soon as we arrived to make sure everything was okay and every time I texted him with a query, he returned by texts very quickly. He was very friendly and welcoming. I was a bit apprehensive when I read some of the reviews on here about the cottage's cleanliness as when we arrived it was spotless. Okay the decorating is not perfect but this is an old, characterful cottage, in a quite a harsh terrain, with countryside and sea, and if you want a place to take your dogs then you can't expect perfection! All in all we loved our stay here and will be back hopefully soon!! The only reason for the 3 for facilities was no wifi - but that's being picky as I just tethered to my mobile! Thanks for allowing us to stay in your lovely retreat Paul!

  • "This holiday was for a well needed break and to celebrate our wedding anniversary."

    The location was absolutely perfect for this as it was private but with enough amenities local to us in order to get anything we needed. The owner Paul said it was like a retreat and we fully agree with his description…it was a lovely retreat with superb views. The cottage was warm, spacious and comfortable and Paul called prior to our visit to let us know he was available if needed which was a nice touch. We were both a little sad to leave and hope that we’ll be able to book this beautiful cottage again next year if it’s available.

  • "Penfor was as exactly as described by Sykes, it is a quirky cottage standing in lovely grounds surrounding by beautiful farmland."

    We couldn’t have asked for a nicer location, it was perfect for us and our two dogs. Church Bay is beautiful, we were lucky with the weather and had some great walks and visited various parts of the island. Penfor was comfortable and spacious, surfaces, floors, furnishings nice and clean. Would benefit from a deeper clean to get rid of cobwebs. The views are outstanding particularly in the morning room where we spent a lot of time gazing out to sea and watching the sunsets. We will definitely return one day. Thank you we enjoyed our holiday very much.

  • "My husband and I and our two children stayed here in August."

    We were bowled over with the location and the long and private driveway to the secluded cottage that has an old mill on its grounds. The views from every window in this cottage are spectacular the location is perfect and would be hard to beat. We expected the cottage to be basic and a little rustic and tatty round the edges, in line with the 3 star rating. We were not however expecting to see a lack of basic cleanliness. The washing machine rubber had black sludge in it, not usable and should be replaced or taken off the itinerary, the toilet brush was binned and we bought a new one and left it for the owner, the bathroom other than this was acceptable aside from the dirty shower curtain and bleach stained floor mat, I'm not sure where the bleach stain came from, it couldn't have been from the "cleaner". I had to scrub and wash every cupboard, plate, pot, pan and utensil in the kitchen before it could be used. The fridge stunk of stale milk and was visibly dirty, I had to scrub it clean and it still felt wrong to use it but what choice did we have. The sofa bed had deep dust on it and insect debris on the floor under the head position when the bed was erected, the throws were musty and probably had never been washed, the beds were awful and the sponge mattress in the double room sloped to one side, visible thick dust on the bedside tables and lamps. During the second day we realised that the fridge was so old (the white plastic was yellow/brown and the metal rusty) it was only cooling to 10-11 degrees (should be between 0-5 degrees in the coolest part). We contacted the owner who on a Sunday night supplied a Stella Artois beer fridge. A quick fix on a Sunday evening, and he replaced with a new fridge on the Monday night which was a good turnaround but should we have been in that position in the first place??? This cottage looks to have had little investment in many years and is clearly being patched up until the owner makes the most of the covid uk rush and sells it on. After complaining to Sykes, the owner told them he had offered to send someone to clean the house…..this was a lie and shouldn’t of been in that situation in the first place! I wouldn't recommend. We would have left on the first day if we didn't have two little ones to let down and if there was availability anywhere else, which there was not due to it being probably the busiest period the UK market has seen due to lack of foreign travel options. Sykes didn’t want to know once they had a reply from the owner even though they claim to work closely with the homeowners to ensure high standards of cleanliness. Clearly they did not on this occasion. Will never book through Sykes again.

  • "We loved it for what it was."

    ...unspoiled....and that's whats you're paying for. The cottage is hidden away from other cottages around and when you reach the main gate there is a log winding discreet drive to the cottage. The cottage itself is situated overlooking the bay, surrounded by farmland with horses & sheep (the latter frequently appear randomly outside the door.) The interior is great with picture postcard windows allowing you a majestic view of the vista of Church Bay. Paul (owner) made sure we had arrived safely and was more than happy to provide us with suggestions for places to visit. Such a great place which I hope to secure for future stays.

  • "Penfor is a hidden gem and we feel so lucky to have found it."

    ...we needed some downtown over the bank holiday and this place was just perfect. Nestled in an elevated position above Church Bay and largely surrounded by fields, the beach is less than a 10 min walk away, as is the pub - the location is amazing! The cottage is cute, quaint, quiet, simple yet incredibly charming and authentic. The views from Penfor at night are breathtaking and we sat for hours with a glass of wine watching the sea and the light fade away.... We look forward to returning one day soon.

  • "Penfor was, for us, a little piece of Paradise amidst all the stress and confusion of the Covid pandemic."

    We know Church Bay very well having holidayed with the family several times but we had never found this little jewel before. This time, necessarily, it was just the two of us with the two dogs. Huge windows presenting views over the fields and out over the sea to Holyhead and Ireland on the far horizon which could not have been more stunning. We were blessed by a week of glorious weather so sunrises and sunsets provided so much joy. We spent hours in the ‘sun room’ just watching the ferries and smaller boats coming and going, the animals in the surrounding fields doing their thing. The exterior of the cottage was a bit jaded, paintwork in need of attention, but internally we thought it charming, well maintained and provided everything we needed. There is no dishwasher but I would gladly trade mine for the view from the kitchen sink! The main bedroom is a long way from the bathroom and the other twin bedroom - maybe not an ideal arrangement if you had small children with you. You might want a baby monitor because you would not hear them otherwise! We opted to sleep in the twin room for convenience so cannot comment on the comfort of the double bed. The single level accommodation and mainly hard floors provided practical, manageable space for us with the dogs who enjoyed the holiday as much as we did. The utility/boot room by the entrance was perfect for outdoor gear and dog supplies. We didn’t use the washing machine or freezer (which wasn’t turned on we discovered). Also no WiFi without a personal hotspot, though mobile reception was good. Outside there are wonderful, natural grounds with banks and hedges surrounding and plenty of places to sit. We could bring the car right to the door for loading. The property is not overlooked at all so made for the perfect getaway.

The Wavecrest cafe is also perfectly situated at the top of the path to the beach. I spent a week here with my dog and did not want to leave. It is well situated to visit all of Anglesey but great to have peace and quiet returning to the lovely cottage.

  • "Penfor Cottage is in an outstanding location, which for views must be one of the best in the area."

    The property is located very close to Church Bay which is a ten-minute walk away along the road. You can to walk to less busy and isolated beaches 10 minutes away across the fields and onto the coastal path. We stayed for two weeks and preferred to access these beaches from the coastal path due to not having young children. The property itself is a good 3 Star property with everything we needed for our holiday and was ideal for our dog. The gardens and the amount of space outside is absolutely amazing. The old mill and the outbuildings gave the location a picturesque feel. This is one of the best holidays we have had in the UK.

    Door de harde wind was de woonkamer niet goed te verwarmen ondanks open haard. De "snug" was wel lekker warm en door het grote raam zag je de schapen grazen en liepen de fazanten en patrijzen langs. Echt geweldig! Vanuit het huis kan je direct wandelen in de velden of langs het coastpath. Verdere aanraders voor natuurliefhebbers en vogelaars: the Dingle, een boardwalk langs rivier evt. te combineren met oostzijde cefni reservoir (westzijde afrader), cors diga, een moerasgebied. Dit naast de bekende attracties zoals south stack, cemlynbay etc. Op de terugeweg naar Liverpool "the spinnies" bezocht, een klein reservaat met heel veel vogelsoorten. Tot slot was het voor ons een heel vreemde ervaring om terug te vliegen naar Nederland met slechts 14 passagiers van een spookachtig stil Liverpool airport; dit vanwege het Coronavirus.

    We still rolled into the middle of the bed so it’s not the mattress. There’s mould under the window in the lounge area. The cottage was freezing when we got there it took 2 days to warm up. I went to have a nice hot bath but I could only get half a bath of hot water before the water ran cold. The views from all round the cottage are stunning, the cottage just needs some money spending on it then it would be lovely

  • "Hi. We have just got home today after a wonderful week at Penfor Cottage Church Bay Anglesey."

    28th - 5th October! What a delightful welcome, this lovely, homely, cottage gave us. Set in a beautiful rural location, with an enjoyable walk to Church bay (5 mins).. Peaceful and tranquil is my description, for this gorgeous place, with amazing views of the sea and countryside, from the windows of the cottage, that is steeped in history along with the, Old windmill and Granary, that are within the grounds.( Information on the history, provided,) regarding various owners over the last 150 years. You cant help but focus on all the positive aspects, Penfor has to offer you. Offering all the requirements for a self catering holiday. Lovely to meet Paul, the owner who delivered a brand new mattress, for the main bed. We slept like babes! Vey comfortable!. A wonderful week, relaxing, walking to the various locations that the coastal walks have to offer and visiting the different areas on Anglesey . Perfect days and in the evenings, feeling cosy in front of a log fire, with a glass of wine and two perfectly contented dogs, who enjoyed their walks and playing on the beach and in the sea. Sad to leave, but looking forward to next April 2020, when we return to Penfor. Thank you Paul and his housekeeper for being so accommodating, and helping us ensure a good holiday. Finally, the snug with a big picture window, looking out to the sea, is an inspiration to artists, or if you have ever wanted to start writing that book!! A magical place, that makes you want to return :-)

  • "A second visit is often the true test."

    This cottage is a fantastic location with stunning coastal views and close proximity to Church Bay’s beach. If location alone made a great holiday, then this would be difficult to beat. However, this cottage disappoints on several points and by day one we knew we wouldn’t want to return. I have marked it down on comfort for two main reasons. 1) The double mattress, as has been noted by other holiday-makers, is not only overdue replacement but also makes a lot of noise every time you turn, which woke me up repeatedly. Sleep is a huge part of what makes a good holiday for me. After 3 poor nights’ sleep on it, we decamped to the sofa bed, which despite being very much narrower (3’6” wide) than a standard double bed, (4’6”) was the lesser of two evils. 2) The shower was a pathetic dribble, or you choose slightly more water flow for lukewarm temperature. This was far from ideal for my thick long hair, and I didn’t dare use conditioner. A good shower would have at least helped soothe the aches from the poor mattress. There was no visible change in the property from our 2018 stay, except a broken radiator shelf hanging down as we walked in the hall on our arrival. Although the cottage was on the whole visibly clean, the mould/damp smell which pervades some of the kitchen cupboards, now does to the extent that we had to wash up some items of crockery (which also smelt damp) before using. There is a lack of ventilation due to the windows along the long side of the cottage (kitchen, dining room, lounge and sun room) being painted shut or being non-opening – which meant that even in the stunning bank holiday weather there was no opportunity to bring in a breeze. I had to scrub out the plastic laundry basket before placing clean wet laundry in, and we avoided the bath mats (not the cotton washable type) provided which really need replacing, so for these reasons I have marked down cleanliness overall. The grounds were unfortunately showing signs of neglect, with encroaching brambles across paths and around the cottage, and it just lacked that loved look. This should be better than that. The kitchen is well equipped (except for the lack of dishwasher) and the accommodation is spacious with more rooms than you might usually expect. I would underline that it is an amazing location. This cottage and grounds COULD have the wow factor, instead, it has, as estate agents say ‘potential’.

  • "Superb location and setting!"

    That's what we paid for in terms of listing rating above. HOWEVER; cottage needs some significant updating, I.e. Bathroom very dated and shower old and just a dribble, not good after a day on the beach. Main double bedroom felt damp and windows painted shut so could air the room. Filthy dehind the cupboards, haven't had attention 'for sometime', found an uneaten Oreo biscuit underneath a radiator. We washed and dried the floor rugs in the twin room (where our young child was sleeping) as dirty, smelt 'doggy' and also damp/wet for some reason. We used a blanket from the bedroom one night and instantly gave me some problems with dust, etc, also suspect it was used as a dog bed at some point, washed and dried these too. Shelf above radiator in hallway kept falling away from wall, had to keep an eye on our child when getting ready to leave cottage just in case he pulled it off the wall. Also sorry to say the the mattresses are needing replacement as well as could feel (and see) the springs and lumps. On the upside it is in an stunning situation above Church Bay, would book again if knew that changes were made, and could be confident about cleanliness (I.e. Going there with young children). This cottage has got amazing potential! Overall had a good time there, but felt we paid too much for your he cottage considering the above issues.

The property

A detached character cottage in an elevated and alluring semi-rural and coastal location, set within its own grounds, enjoying stunning, far-reaching sea views extending towards Holyhead Island and on a clear day Ireland, in the popular Church Bay hamlet on the north west coast of Anglesey.

Located just a short stroll to the sandy Blue Flag beach and Anglesey Coastal Path, this wonderful cottage offers cosy and homely accommodation, perfect for a family, friends or just a couple.

The cottage is approached through a gated entrance onto a winding driveway that passes the Grade II listed windmill and granary, which gives this cottage its unique location.

There is ample off road parking and the driveway is set amidst a verdant lawned area that displays a vibrant range of exotic plants, shrubs, bushes and trees.

This delightful cottage offers well-proportioned accommodation which is all on the ground floor, and some great character attributes such as exposed beams, stonework, quarry tiled flooring, stripped wood floors and sash windows.

Inside this wonderful cottage there is an airy kitchen with dining area and a welcoming sitting room, where you can relax and unwind after an energetic day exploring the delights on offer in the local area, with added atmosphere and warmth from an open fire.

French doors open to the studio room with a sofa bed, adding some flexibility to the sleeping arrangements, but it’s the picture window with the most stunning view that will inspire the artist amongst you, or simply enjoy some quiet time and finish that book!

About the location


Holyhead 13 miles.

Church Bay nestles on the stunning north west coastline of Anglesey, boasting a superb seafood restaurant and a Blue Flag sandy beach, renowned for its safe, family fun, excellent kayaking, fishing and birdwatching. Close by, the village of Llanfaethlu provides a local shop and a Post Office (open on Tuesdays and Thursdays). Wales' only working windmill is within easy reach, providing an opportunity to see corn being ground the old fashioned way, while the surrounding countryside boasts excellent fishing, birdwatching and coastal walks, with climbing on offer in Snowdonia. Indulge in fabulous watersports, including kitesurfing, diving and sailing at the stunning Rhosneigr beach, or enjoy 18 holes at a choice of three local golf courses. Spend the day at Anglesey Sea Zoo, visit the historic town of Beaumaris with its medieval castle and array of shops and restaurants, take a boat trip past Plas Newydd Mansion or indulge in a day trip to Ireland. A wonderful, year round holiday location for all to enjoy.
