  • "We absolutely loved ynys castell, very comfortable, warm, and beautifully set out; making the most of the stunning views."

  • "Some small touches would go a long way."

    More pots and pans as the number were limited. One poor quality blue cloth and scourer were supplied , spend a little more on these items as those supplied were useless! A few more tea towels , two supplied which were used after one day! All in all a fantastic property but the small touches let it down

  • "An absolutely magical house with beautiful gardens."

    Good kitchen and living areas with everything we needed. We considered it the best holiday house the family have stayed in. It had plenty of room to spread out, and the views of the water and the boats were delightful.

    The only thing that I was not happy with was the hall carpet it was full of stains and needs replacing it gives a bad impression and the house is quite expensive and I expected better

In terms of entertainment, this is an ideal spot with something for everybody, there is the butterfly palace 'Pili Palas' which is incredibly popular with families, as well as the astounding Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens well worth a walk around.
