  • "Lovely little cottage in a great location."

    Very clean and well looked after. The only thing that stopped me giving this a 5 star rating was the bed. The creaking and groaning from the bed base was dreadful. It most definitely needs replacing. Other than that for the two of us, it was ideal.

  • "The photos online looked really nice, but in reality."

    1) Lets start at the front door, greeted with dead plants. 2) The bed was broken and needs replacing. 3) The bathroom that thought it was a kitchen, with kitchen units and two wine racks, WHY !! as well as a wardrobe !! The handles on the doors where rusty and no towel rails. 4) In the lounge area the nest of tables had broken legs. 5) The oven was dirty obviously from previous clients. 6) The outside furniture needed replacing. Certainly not value for money, would not recommend this property.

  • "I only scored 9/10 as the back Garden IMO needs some securuty."

    Being dog friendly is great but our small dog is never off lead and with no gate at the side or driveway we couldn't relax in the lovely back garden. Even If you secured the small access at the left of the property with a small gate of some kind that would have helped. The table and chairs in the garden were a little tired and the wiring behind the TV very messy which I did have to tidy due to my OCD and selling TV's etc for a living :-) Kelvin was very reachable and always responded in good time to any questions I had. Amazing location, and only a short drive to other towns and locations. Would defo stay here again.

  • "We had a lovely week stopping in Bwthyn Carreg."

    A nice little detached cottage well off the main road so nice and quiet. Only a 5 minute walk and you are onto the main beach or a little further to the numerous little coves dotted around the bay. A spaceous maintained garden to sit in but had to be careful with our dog as its not fenced off either side of the cottage which is a shame for a dog friendly property. We had one small issue which was rectified straightaway by the caretaker. Only negatives we found was that the sofa was not the comfiest and the bed mattress was ok for us but the base was very creaky. Also would of been good to have an outside tap to wash the dogs feet. We will definitely be visiting again.

  • "It's a nice place."

    It could do with an upgrade. It needs a new bed. It needs a new rug. All the handles in the bathroom are rusting needs a couple of new blinds got some mildew on them. Front door macc step is coming away could be a trip hazard. The interweb drops in and out but worked in the main. But I had a quiet time there. Its a great place and some OK pubs.

    General cleanliness when we arrived poor, garden furniture needs replacing. The location is perfect and the garden is huge for the size of the property , but can't enjoy as there is no back door

  • "The property was clean and comfortable except for the settee in the lounge."

    On the whole the kitchen was well equipped but a few more plates , bowls and mugs would help to make the holiday more relaxing as well as making the dishwasher more economical to use by having it once rather than after each meal time. It was a lovely area which we enjoyed exploring.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Would benefit from an outside light at the back of the property and a maiden. Other than that everything you need is there. Inside window frames need a clean. Loved our stay. So close to everything an ideal base. Thank you.

  • "The cottage was in a lovely location and we had a great holiday."

    We didn't get to use the back garden but it was a great private area that would be fantastic in the summer. The off road parking was much appreciated. It was absolutely filthy behind the bed but otherwise the rest of the cottage was very clean. I dropped something down the back of the bed and in retrieving it I was disgusted (which isn't like me because I am quite relaxed about cleanliness). The cottage was warm and comfortable. The lack of cutlery and crockery was annoying as it meant that we couldn't use the dishwasher - e.g. 2 bowls and 2 large plates, 4 knives and 4 forks is not enough for self catering. We had to wash up after meals so we had enough crockery and cutlery for the next meal - this was a major annoyance. It would also be good to have a towel rail for the towels in the bathroom. The owner should also know that the shower cubicle leaks quite significantly.

    (despite its proximity to the beach) We missed having a washing machine/or access to a washing machine.

  • "Treadurr Bay itself is mainly the beach."

    There are few amenities and the only open public toilets are horrendous. The restaurants are fine but over the weekend were already fully booked and only one take-away cafe was open. This meant that we mostly catered for ourselves There were no laundry facilities at the cottage as these had been closed because of Covid and a clothes line outside instead would have been helpful. The patio was only in sun in the afternoon and evening and a smaller patio at the other side of the garden would have been lovely for the morning. It was a very pretty cottage and a convenient base for days on the beach.

    2 dinner plates, no side plates (we used saucers from the 2 cups) , So little cutlery and tableware that you have one meal without putting the dishwasher on ( so that woukd be dishwasher on after breakfast , lunch and dinner ).

  • "This cottage was brilliant, had everything you could need for your stay."

    I took all the food Jake (dog) and I would need, as there is only two small general stores in the Bay area. Holyhead 2.5 miles away. Kel (the caretaker) told me the short cut to beach (not in the cottage info). Right out of cottage through barrier, bear right and follow the path to a grassed path way, then through the small alley and there`s the sea!

    Ideal for a couple looking for a nice break, great rear garden. Plenty of pubs and eateries nearby, however I would recommend you do your homework, and book in advance to ensure you can get in. I would definitely recommend Sykes cottages at Treadur Bay. We had a fantastic time, and our dog loved it, very dog friendly on Anglesey.

    Very cosy and compact! I do not however feel it had been deep cleaned before our stay; there were a few cobwebs on the walls and the sofa still had crisps and dirt tucked on the sides! We would certainly stay again and the area is just so peaceful and quiet! 5 minutes walk to a beautiful beach and the sea was so calm we loved it including our collie who is beach mad! The garden is also very big and the added bonus of a table and chairs to enjoy the afternoon soon was great Would definitely stay again at this wonderful little cottage!

    The bedroom, however, had a large bed squeezed into it with no room for a bedside table or lamps. It was so tightly packed that I had to use my phone camera to negotiate the space from bedroom to bathroom.

  • "Like English football a tale of two halves!"

    The cottage is cosy in a nice location, well set out but, the bathroom was a revaluation. Never seen a fitted wardrobe or two wine racks in a bathroom and a shower where the silver shower hose was black with mould and black mould in all areas of the sealant, not to mention the prolific pubic hairs all around the floor of the toilet! Reading previous occupants comments revealed that these have been reported before and not cleaned. This could be a gem of a location but needs quite a bit of TLC before it reaches full marks!

  • "Having had experience of other holiday cottages, I feel able to offer some constructive critique."

    Firstly I would say that we had a wonderful week in Trearddur - it’s a lovely location and conducive to restorative rest and relaxation. The location of the cottage is ideal. The cottage itself is comfortable and fine for 2 people. It lacks natural light so if the weather is not fine it can be claustrophobic in the living area. The amenities are fine, apart perhaps from a fridge which is difficult to access (particularly the lower shelves) in its current location and the lack of a washing machine/airer/washing line. Wi-fi is not really as advertised as you need to move away from the cottage to a nearby central area which is accessed by a key which hangs in the kitchen and was not noticed by us until the day before our departure. In this regard a welcome folder of detailed information might be better than sheets of A4 posted in the kitchen. The garden is nice although the garden furniture is pretty worn and not in keeping with the otherwise good quality provision in the cottage. We took our own chairs and were able to relax in the garden; this would not have been as enjoyable had we had to use what is in place. Finally the welcome pack, including the bottle of Prosecco was a nice touch and was appreciated.

  • "A lovely bijou cottage that catered for every need."

    Very well equipped and a great base to explore from. We were grateful for the thoughtful welcome pack. Previous comments we had read suggested a problem with saucepans being old. This is no longer the case, they were virtually new. No complaints in the kitchen! Our only “ criticism “ would be that whilst we understand cost to be kept to minimum, it could benefit from updating some useable cushions to replace those already there, ( they are flat and offer no support on the sofa). The pillows in the bedroom were a tad lifeless too but we had brought our own anyhow just incase. Garden was lovely too, but the furniture again, neglected and some could do with being disposed of ax unusable. It’s a shame there wasn’t a small fence though to keep our dog from escaping, but obviously we stayed with him the whole time. These are only small things, and didn’t spoil our stay, but intended only as positive feedback. It’s a really well looked after property otherwise. Loved it ****

Holyhead 2 miles.

Trearddur Bay is situated on the western shore of Holy Island. It’s truly beautiful - a great sweep of low grassy coastline indented with rocky coves and fine sandy beaches (European Blue Flag). Watersports, bathing, sailing and windsurfing are the main activities in the summer months and golfers will enjoy the excellent Holyhead 18 hole links golf course. It’s a great place for nature lovers with renowned birdwatching at the South Stack Lighthouse RSPB Reserve and lots of rock pools and cliff top walks to explore. 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, an interesting harbour front, a marina, the world’s second longest breakwater and exciting day trips to Dublin on the ferry. The Maritime Museum in Holyhead has an excellent cafe and the beautiful Holyhead Breakwater Country Park has walks for you to enjoy. Further afield there is the stunning Newborough with its excellent woodland and beach and Beaumaris with its town and castle. A great location with plenty to see and do!
