Visited Ty Top for a week in June, my friend and our three dogs.
This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in, it was so well equipped, the furniture was big and comfy, plenty of room to spread out, all done to a high spec. There was a lovely welcome of wine, bread, Welsh cakes and Welsh bread waiting for us in the kitchen.
The weather was pretty poor for our week but the light and airy feel of our cottage made all the difference, the large conservatory even made it pleasant to sit and read whilst it was blowing a gale and raining hard outside. The view across to Holyhead is fab. The owner, Einion was incredibly helpful and friendly we had a very informative insight into the work he does on the farm, thank you Einion.
I don't know if I misread a previous review but I thought you could walk to the nearby beach in about 20 minutes, you can't it's a drive away. But plenty of lovely little coves to visit, lots of coastal walks as well as some short walks around the farm.
Would highly recommend this cottage it is worth every penny, the only thing I would say is you definitely need a car but things aren't too far away.
Spent a lovely weekend with kids, dog and adults exploring the rock pools and local pubs! A really dog friendly cottage with lots of space to spread out and let the kids and adults have their fun. Plenty of parking and outside space, well equipped kitchen and an amazing view out to the sea.
We enjoyed a great week in this lovely property which is equipped with everything we needed during our stay.
The owner, Einion, gave us a very warm welcome on arrival and couldn't do enough to ensure we were happy and had everything we needed. Einion also gave us a tour of the farm during our stay which all the family enjoyed and found very interesting.
We visited various places on Anglesey and enjoyed a number of the beaches close by with our children and dogs, the closest beach is just a 1.5 mile walk/drive, the location makes for a great base from which to explore. We also spent plenty of time relaxing at the cottage and enjoying the tranquility of the surroundings.
We would not hesitate to return for another holiday at Ty Top.
Located on Plas Uchaf a family run dairy farm. This is a spacious 4 bedroom 3 bath/shower room cottage. Having a boot room entrance was really useful for our dog and to decamp the coats and boots etc. Toasty and warm throughout the house thanks to very efficient underfloor heating downstairs including the conservatory. Log burner in the lounge provided lovely cosy fires when we turned the heating down!Upstairs heated by radiators.
Useful to know that towels & bedding are provided. There is a hairdryer in bedroom drawers. Small amount of tea, coffee, sugar and a pint of milk etc. available so you can make a cuppa before you unpack. Washing up liquid and dish wash tablets dishcloths, tea towels, cling film and tinfoil, salt and pepper provided. A bottle of wine was also left for us which was a lovely gesture.
Einion was very friendly and welcomed us and gave us info about where to find things in the cottage. We bought some farm fresh free range eggs from him which were huge and very tasty.
The bedrooms were comfortable. Post storm Doris, it was still very windy and there was some lifting of the metal roof in farm buildings behind the cottage on the first night of our stay which disturbed our sleep, but no one can predict wild weather in February!
Lovely touches like lanterns and candles added real atmosphere to this beautiful cottage. Don't forget to take matches.
Having ample parking space and an enclosed garden was really useful. We would like to return in Spring/ Summer to use the outside patio space which has lovely views across the fields. The conservatory was lovely and comfortable. the seating was better for our backs than the large sofas in the living room. Even in a howling gale there were no drafts and we were snug and comfortable throughout.
The only suggestion we would make to enhance our stay would be t a mirror in each of the bedrooms for convenience when doing hair/ make up etc.
The coast is a short drive or a longer walk away and this side of the island is very quiet. The long weekend was peaceful and quiet and we had a real taste of Anglesey and will definitely return when the weather gets better.
We highly recommend Ty Top. Thank you to the Owen family for making our stay so pleasant
Five of us stayed for one week, all very happy with our rooms and bathroom facilities. Everything there you need and very accommodating host should you need anything else. Didn't take long to get off Anglesey to visit NT sites and Snowdonia and we had a number of good days out.
Other reviewers talked up the Black Lion so we used it twice. Lovely pint and food also good but tried to book on Thursday at around 8:00pm to be told we were too late!
Very good site and to be recommended without hesitation.
