  • "We spent the week at East Lighthouse Keepers Cottage, at Point Lynas."

    A beautiful location - very peaceful and a wonderful wildlife haven. However, we have had significant problems with Sykes Cottages. When we arrived at 4pm on the Saturday with 2 young children we were told by the cleaner the oven was broken and someone would come and look at it on Tues. We were also told about various other problems with the house. We were told that the team were aware. I contacted Sykes Cottages that evening to see if they could get someone to us sooner than Tues as we had brought food which we now couldn't cook and we had a Sainsburys shop arriving 4hrs later which we couldn't change. Noone rang us back. This happened every day for several days. We finally had a new oven replaced on the Thursday. We have been back from holiday 3 weeks now and have contacted the Sykes team several times to try and claim some compensation for not being able to cook any of the food we had brought with us. We have continued to have difficulties with this. They have given us a small amount of compensation but in our view this was not sufficent for the lack of cooking facilities and the extremely poor communication and customer services. Overall, very disappointing and has impacted on our holiday experience. We would think twice about booking through Sykes Cottages again unfortunately.

  • "Iam so sad that i will never stay here again."

    It was our 4th stay which we have loved over the years. We have just had the most stressful week in the east keepers cottage. On arriving & went to use the toilet it was hanging off the wall & the pedestal was also not bolted down.A stella beer cardboard box had been folded & pushed under the pedestal. We contacted the care taker Rick who asked for photos which we provided.he said he will send a plumber Today, no plumber arrived. That was on 20th April our arrival day.the plumber came out on 24th April which wasn't good enough.The cottage was dirty very dusty. We reported that the bulbs in the kitchen were out appart from two out of eight. The main walk in shower the filter was blocked so all water was going into the bathroom area & out came the the mop & bucket. These concerns were reported to Rick the care taker but didn't get resolved till the Tuesday 23rd whe he did put 3 bulbs in & cleaned out the shower drain. The self-catering cottage had everything but the oven door didn't shut properly so food i.e oven chips fish fingers took over a hour so food wasn't getting to the right temperatures this wasant rectified & he said he will look into it which he did not do during our weeks stay or bring an air fryer to make our life easier. The frying pan needs replacing not fit for purpose no none stick everthing sticking. The kettle was very tempimental one minute it worked the next it didnt. Rick the caretaker said because its fully booked no time to check everything, we have stayed at this property over the years under different hosts & always spotless n everything working. When the so called cleaner's come in on change over day need to be on the ball with cleanliness i.e shower filters cleaned of hair & report any findings of broken or not fit for purpose items & replacement of bulbs. So upset & felt as it was just about the money and no care towards us.

  • "Stayed for a week in the East cottage."

    Spotlessly clean ! Beds very comfortable, everything we needed was there to enjoy our stay. Views from the dining room were spectacular saw dolphins, seals and porpoise every day. Lovely area not far from shops etc. 10 minutes walk takes you to a lovely little cove. Would highly recommend and we have already booked to go back next year, can’t wait !!

  • "A wonderful spot with warm, spacious, comfortable accommodation - a nature lover's paradise."

    What a shame that the property maintenance has obviously been neglected over recent years (particularly the windows!). The buildings need so much ongoing work to keep out the powerful weather. I don't envy the new owners' maintenance list! but good luck to them, - they have a real gem if they can afford to get on top of the work required. (minor niggles - sticking doors, faulty plugs in bedroom sinks, leaking roof in hallway, no simple dish drainer in kitchen [not everyone uses a dishwasher], clearer info. needed about when and where to put rubbish for collection, cracked window in toilet, scruffy out-door area). Also we don't possess smartphones so were unaware we were required to strip beds until we got home! This all sounds very picky - just trying to help. We had a great time - how I shall miss that sea view and the dolphins, also the comfortable beds. Best wishes and good luck to the new owners - hopefully we'll be back!! - Mary Galloway

The property

Amlwch 2.4 miles.

East Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage is a three-bedroom holiday home in the most breath-taking location on the coastline of Anglesey, enjoying some amazing sea views!

Nestled on the northeastern point of the Isle, in Llaneilian near Amlwch, as the name suggests, this home is a quirky, former lighthouse keeper's cottage, oozing character.

Step inside to reach the sitting room, with wooden flooring underfoot, plush sofas to relax into, and a TV for entertainment.

In the dining room, you’ll experience the most incredible views through the large pine window whilst enjoying breakfast, lunch, or supper, with a delightful woodburning stove to light for some extra warmth.

The kitchen has all you need including an electric cooker and hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, small freezer and washing machine, easing your self-catered stay, where you can prepare meals to be enjoyed outdoors, or light the barbecue on warmer days!

There are three bedrooms to select from, including a king-size, a double, and a twin, all serviced by two handy shower rooms.

The nature and wildlife surrounding the cottage are incredible, nestled within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; spend time spotting porpoises, dolphins, birds, and gorgeous wildflowers in the spring.

Ornithologists will delight in spotting Wheateaters, Choughs, and Stonechats.

The local beach, which can be seen to the left, just prior to the private drive up the peninsula to the Lighthouse, is a hidden gem called Traeth Eilan.

Just a short walk from the property, this stunning rocky beach is reminiscent of a smugglers cove, with rugged cliffs protecting this secluded cove and providing mill-pond conditions, perfect for your morning wild swim, paddle board adventures or sea kayaking.A quick stroll along the coastal footpath brings you to a lovely sandy cove called Llaneilian, which is ideal for bathing, rock pooling, or just having a relaxing afternoon.

Travel south to reach the attractions of Beaumaris, with its 13th century castle, bustling pier and the Beaumaris Gaol and Court ready to be explored, whilst further activities lie near the border, including Pili Palas Nature World, Plas Newydd House and Gardens, and Anglesey Sea Zoo.
