    We throughly enjoyed our stay at Pentowyn. The beach a few steps away. Great for our dog and lovely walks from the doorstep. The cottage was immaculate and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The garden fully enclosed and spacious. No issues from the campsite next door or the car park. Honestly sad to leave and will definitely book here again.

    Literally across from a wonderful dog friendly beach. A wonderful walk along the coast path through the forest and on to lovely coves to explore. There’s also the bonus of having everything you need on your doorstep shopping wise. The only thing that let us down was the weather. But even that couldn’t dampen what was a wonderful time. Would certainly go again in the future. 5*

    The cottage is perfectly situated next to the beach, with Penrhos Coastal Park on its doorstep and only a short drive from Trearddur Bay and other beautiful locations. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and well equipped. Two bathrooms made it perfect for us and we particularly liked the bath after a busy day exploring. The kitchen was excellent and had everything we needed. The master bedroom was generous in size and very comfortable. The upstairs single was a tight squeeze (we had an adult in there - it’d be fine for a little one). The garden was perfect for dogs - fully enclosed and very spacious. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. I cannot recommend it enough.

    We loved our stay and wished we’d have booked for longer. The cottage had everything and more and the little touches were lovely. The yummy chocolate cake and milk in the fridge were a welcome surprise after a long journey. The location was perfect and right on the beach and the views from the window were beautiful. Round the corner are supermarkets and a retail park so the best of both worlds. The cottage had a lovely garden with seating area that was great for our dog to wander safely. Inside, everything was clean and furnished to a high standard with cosy and comfortable beds. The only small things I would say to improve the property would be the size of the towels. The bath towels were very small so I’d recommend taking your own. Also as a bit of a snob, I’d have liked to see a better offering of drinking glasses. More larger glasses for lager or gin and Prosecco glasses would be welcomed for the fizz. If you book this cottage you won’t be disappointed and I’d definitely book again Thank you Jane and family for having us x

    We have really enjoyed our stay here, especially with the beach being so close, literally steps away from the front door! The house is pretty well-stocked, although a quiche and lasagne dish would be good additions to the kitchen cupboard. The heating issue was quickly sorted by the friendly owners, many thanks! The log burner is wonderful and most welcome on the chillier evenings. The 2 bathrooms downstairs are good; although we missed a toilet upstairs (ageing knees going up and down in the night!!) But this is clear in the cottage description. The shops are very close by and proved a great convenience for stocking up the fridge and cupboards. Overall, we've spent a lovely week here. Our dogs loved the large enclosed garden too. The weather hasn't been great but the cottage has been a lovely place to sit in, relax, get dry, warm up and chill out. Highly recommended.

    House very clean and well maintained. It is well equipped and included cleaning materials (not many do that). New mattresses would be good and as it is a quirky cottage perhaps yellow warning tape on the beam at the top of the stairs! There is a step down into the downstairs bedroom and one bathroom but you got used to that! Being at the end of the road and next to the beach was amazing for our dog- her favourite place and still a sandy area at high tide. Good size garden but no privacy during summer months as camper vans in field next door but hopefully the hedge will grow a few more feet then it will be perfect! Would definitely come back out of season.

    Perfectly located for the beach, local amenities and as a base for exploring Anglesey and North Wales. Four adults and two small dogs thoroughly enjoyed our break which was accompanied by weather that could not have been bettered. The cottage contained all of the comforts of home, and some extra, together with a superb garden enjoyed by all of us. Although the cottage's details did mention the sloping bedroom ceilings upstairs, we do think that the smaller room upstairs is only really suitable for a child. Better facilities for refuse and recycling would also be appreciated. However, despite our minor criticisms, we fully intend to return to the cottage as soon as time allows. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage.

We have 2 big German Shepherds Axel & Skye who absolutely loved the enclosed garden. The outside hose was a massive help for washing sandy dogs down. We even had dog towels provided in our welcome pack with cakes and assorted coffee/tea and even milk in the fridge. There are so many walks from the doorstep and others a very short drive. The island of holyhead is absolutely breathtaking. The house is full of everything you need and the log fire is stunning. Make sure you book you will not be disappointed. Amy Lanigan-Deeks

    A nice touch was the basket provided with towels and throws for the dogs. Brilliant straight across the road to the dog friendly beach. There is a caravan site over the fence next door, which was closed during our visit. The wood burner in the lounge made it very cosy together with Sky TV including movies. You did have to bend down to go into the bedroom upstairs and the bathroom and shower room were downstairs which we didn't find a problem. I would say though we were woken at 6.30 am on 2 mornings by the council worker coming to empty the waste bin in the car park next to the property with loud music blaring out. The dog walkers turn up at all times of day, parking in front of the gates to the property on the other side of the road, making it difficult to enter and leave the drive. All in all a lovely cottage which I would definitely recommend.

    When the tide's out, there's a huge expanse of sand to exercise dogs and humans alike! And at the far end of the beach there's the lovely Penrhos nature reserve where we found secluded coves and wonderful woodland walks. The owners have renovated the property to a high standard with great fixtures and fittings including a fabulous log burner which guaranteed a cosy day spent indoors when it was wet & windy outside. We were lucky with the weather for most of our week and we were able to make full use of the spacious garden and the little patio area with table and chairs (these weren't on any of the photos of the cottage when we booked so think it would be a good idea to update them to show this nice outdoor dining area). We noted that a previous visitor had mentioned that the garden wasn't totally enclosed, but we found it to be completely fenced off (perhaps new?) and our cocker spaniel was safely confined no matter how hard she tried to find an escape route! There's a plethora of shops, takeaways and restaurants all just minutes away, making Pentowyn a really convenient choice too - we had a really great week and would highly recommend it for a memorable break.

    Unfortunately it was not, so we were unable to let the dogs out on there own and when we did go out with them they managed to escape so easily as in jump over the low wall while people and dogs walking past or just step through the roped wall which just led them onto the ajoining car park. We could not relax and so did not enjoy the experience as we should. If your garden is not enclosed please say that so people can make the right choice.

    The cottage it’s gorgeous and has been renovated really well and tastefully. We book these type of places for the location as we like to go out walking and this location was better than we anticipated, it’s literally right on the beach and should be advertised as a sea view property. I found myself setting alarms for earlier than normal to appreciate the sun rise views out of the bedroom window and even popping across to the beach to really take it all in as the place was so quiet and peaceful at that time. Short drives away took us to Holyhead mountain, red dwarf bay and other beautiful walks perfect for dogs. The garden was huge and the same with the drive, all enclosed so perfect for just letting the dog roam around but could imagine would be great for families too. For tall families/people, upstairs has very low ceilings, this isn’t a complaint as it’s an old building and the property is quirky, we were fine with it as we didn’t really spend our time up there. More tea towels or maybe a kitchen roll would have been good but that is literally the only slight niggle we could find with this place. Thank you for an amazing weekend and we will be back in future I’m sure. Nat, Chris & Paddy the dog.

About the location


Trearddur Bay 3 miles.

The bustling town of Holyhead rests on the North West coast of the Isle of Anglesey, the largest town on the island and perhaps known best for being the main ferry port to Ireland. Steeped in history, the town boasts the remains of Roman town walls and forts, medieval burial chambers and stone village foundations. Explore the Breakwater Country Park, a former quarry, which offers designated walks through the grounds. The park is full of interesting wildlife, most notably the seals who visit the Holyhead coast, and outlines the amazing construction of the world's longest breakwater, some 1.8 miles, which today protects the harbour. Visit the colourful marina with its yachts and tall ships, or the town's maritime museum, with its tales of 100 shipwrecks in the vicinity. Day trips to Ireland can be enjoyed easily from here, with Dublin just 90 minutes away on the fast ferry. With spectacular cliff top walks over Holyhead Mountain, golden sandy beaches at the award winning Trearddur Bay and the Snowdonia National Park just a 20 minute drive away, this is a superb holiday location, at any time of the year.
