The service was excellent, all went smoothly and the details and photos of the property were just as it said. We had a great holiday.Mr john brereton - 6th May 2018
I would recommend this place to anyoneSue Murray - 20th April 2018
What a fabulous 'bolthole', such a lovely experience for our first trip to Wales. Gorgeous decor, and all the home comforts, plus extras! We loved the chocolate! Thank you for the super helpful hints and tips for restaurants and pubs, plus the walks, not to mention ice cream! We all loved it!!Mr Brian Walton - 6th April 2018
This is a stunning cottage in the picturesque town of Beaumaris close to its castle and sea. The property is wonderfully well equipped and everything about it is just perfect. Carol & Trefor are incredibly welcoming hosts, so I really recommend you stay there if you are in Anglesey.Mr James Aschehoug - 2nd April 2018
We absolutely loved this cottage! The attention to detail and quality of furnishings, linen, beds, bathroom was amazing! We didn't make use of the garden space but it is an excellent safe space for children. Beaumaris town centre is two minutes walk but the cottage is on a quiet side street. We would highly recommend.Ruth Wilson - 12th March 2018
What a fantastic cottage! We were delighted with the Christmas decorations and all the little extras! The four of us enjoyed a very relaxing Christmas break. We also thought the information book was very well put together. Thank you.W.P. Hodgkison - 27th December 2017
We had a very comfortable week and it is obvious the owners have put a lot of thought to providing a welcoming and homely property. Their interesting information on the history of the property was a lovely addition to the other information and paperwork provided. Despite parking issues in the town, we were able to park outside the property all week.Ms Judith Hannan - 7th September 2017
