  • "Our second visit to Refail Bach and it didn't disappoint us."

    To be honest, we didn't expect it to !! A comforting and relaxing break was what we were expecting, and that's what we had. Shame we could only stay for a week, but after the pandemic, it was very welcoming.

  • "Refail Bach is part of a small group of cottages set back behind from the main road running through Pentre Brew."

    The design is eclectic being the old Smithy and the initial outside appearance completely belies what is inside. Being all on one level was great for my elderly mother with mobility issues. The fixtures and fittings were all of high standard and we loved the on-site bar. Easy access to all parts of Anglesey and we enjoyed going down to watch sunsets at Aberffraw. Highly recommended.

  • "Although a little difficult to locate, it was well worth it."

    We used the cabin as a base to visit various places over the four days we were there and could not fault it in anyway at all. The cabin was clean, provided ample storage for our bits, had up to date facilities including a washer and dryer, a quiet location and the surprise bonus's of a 'trust' bar where you could get a drink, a copious welcome pack and sheep grazing in the field next door lol. Gary, the owner, was great in communicating with us and was really helpful. We really cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thank you for a lovely few days and hopefully we'll be ale to return in the future.

  • "We couldn't have found a better place to stay for our weeks holiday on Anglesea."

    The cottage Rafail Bach is outstanding, the welcome pack amazing and the owner really helpful & friendly. The cottage was comfortable, warm, spotless and is finished to a high standard. It has everything you need & more for a holiday. It has it's own private garden to the back & dedicated parking at the front. The private road meant our 8 year old could play out for hours safely on his bike which was a super bonus for us. It shares the road with a second cottage which sleeps 6, so could be booked together to sleep 10. It's on the door step of so much to do on and off Anglesea. We've cycled (Sustrans cycle trail 566 from the door - the Cafe in Malltraeth is a gem & a must to visit before turning back! & Newborough Forest), walked, visited beaches (Newborough is a must), visited Beaumaris & its castle, LlanfairPG, Caernarfon, Cemaes, Trearddur Bay, South Stack lighthouse, Rhosneigr (watched the fighter planes take off, pass by & land), Conwy, drove round the base of Snowden (stopping to visit Llanberis & Beddgelert), been to Zip World Fforest, visited the Motor Museum (a good half day out & cakes amazing), watched racing on Anglesea circuit as well as finding time to enjoying sitting outside at the cottage relaxing. We've had fantastic ice creams at the Red Boat in Beaumaris, Georgio's in Lanberris, off the Quay in Conwy and enjoyed it with a pancake in Scoops Caernarfon. We enjoyed meals at the Ship Inn at Red Wharf Bay, the Crown at Aberffraw, the cafe at Zip World & Fish n Chips on the Quay at Conwy. We didn't get round to riding the Ribs to Puffin Island or climbing Snowden and so many other things, so we will be back and will look forward to stopping at Rafail Bach again & again.

    Refail Bach is a beautiful cottage, it's a hidden gem, very decieving, until inside. It is a credit to owner Gary, who has put his heart and soul into the property, stunning. Gary was a lovely host, who has a fantastic welcome pack.We visited, Portmerion, Baumaris Gaol Menai bridge, south stack in Holyhead, just a few to mention. We ate from the Chinese takeaway, highly recommend, went into the Hideout, tucked down a back street, another gem, delicious food, great place too, all in all, an absolutely beautiful place to visit, you will never be disappointed visiting here..

    Very welcoming owner and my husband loved all the televisions and that the wifi connections worked very well. An excellent holiday home with a great central location for visiting the beaches and beauty spot's on the island of Anglesey. We loved being in the middle of the countryside and just waking up to the sound of the birds singing. Would love to return again. Julia and Wayne, Wrexham
