A great location with nothing but sheep as company!
Absolutely quiet and a great place to relax. A Great walks within several miles (around lakes, through fields, etc.).Arjan from the Netherlands - 10th August 2017
It was a good base for the whole family, including grandparents. House was well kitted out. Our day at Anglesey was the best. We visited the light house then went on to the beach for the afternoon. We have certainly found a lovely place on the beach for our next holiday to Wales. Beautiful! You were excellent and email replies were prompt and would recommend you for a stress free holiday booking experience.Angela from Edinburgh - 16th July 2016
