Lovely stay in beautiful cottage.
The fittings and furnishings are of a high standard and there is a lovely view across fields opposite. The beach is a 3 minute walk away and there is an easy walk along the cliff.
Sue was very helpful with restaurant recommendations.
A great spot to explore the island.

“Wow! Fantastic views, beautifully furnished and a top location for coastal walks”

We have just returned from an amazing stay at 'The Beach Retreat' and really wish we had booked for longer! From the moment we walked through the door it felt so homely and cosy! Sue greeted us and showed us around...we were kindly given a complimentary bottle of wine too which was a lovely touch. It was furnished to a very high standard and has everything you would need! It even had a Tassimo machine which my other half was really happy about! There is space in front of the property to park your car and the views are absolutely amazing...sheep and horses in the fields in front and scenic views of the bay to the right. It was so quiet and close to the bay for walks on the beach. We walked along the coastal path which led to several hidden bays, the views were beautiful! We took our dog and she loved it!

There have been comments about the limited use of space to the back of the property, however this wasn't an issue for us at all! You are surrounded by so much land that I wouldn't let it put you off! Also, we were led to believe by reviews on here that dogs are not allowed on the beach in front however this rule only applies from May to September. We absolutely LOVED our time there and are looking forward to returning next year. Thank you to Sue and Trin for making us feel so welcome :)

“Relaxing”

I had booked a few nights away in the cottage for my husbands birthday.. Sue was very quick in responding to questions/bookings via email, we were greeted at the cottage by trin who was lovely and showed us all we needed to know! The cottage itself was spotless and decorated to a very high standard and the breakfast pack and wine was a very nice touch! The beach nearby is lovely and the lighthouse is a must see, our 6yr old son loved seeing the helicopter and planes over head! The only thing the place is missing is a pub within walking distance, however we had been recommended a very nice pub about 20min drive away which is well worth a visit.. The food was gorgeous and they are dog friendly! All in all we had a very relaxing short break away! I would definitely recommend this place!!

“Lovely cottage in scenic peaceful location”

Stayed for 3 nights for my birthday, with partner and teenage daughter, and 2 dogs the cottage is very modern, it stands quite high with lovely views of the coast and countryside.It is a very short walk down to the beach, the beach unfortunately does not allow dogs though if you walk about another 10 minutes towards Trearddur there is another one with no restrictions.
The cottage is very well equipped, the wine and starter pack are a nice thought.My daughter was very grateful of the good wifi in the cottage, the mezzanine bedroom is not really practical for larger children.We were fighting for space as there is nowhere to put clothes in that room and she had to crawl about in there.
This is a very nice cottage, the lady that greets you is very nice and too are the neighbours, they made a fuss of our dogs.
Can recommend a trip (5 min drive) out to South Stack Lighthouse, lovely tea shop and stunning views
I personally think it would be better if when you book ,the terms and conditions letter and the sign in the bathroom was worded abit friendlier, it comes across slightly threatening,particularly the one in bathroom, I understand that occasionally damage must happen, but most abiding people would be happy to sort that with owners if it were to arise.Ive never experienced this before in other rentals, so it did make me wary that your deposit might get kept for the slightest thing, but I MUST point out that we have received an email this morning that we are getting the deposit back, i would hate to think it might put anyone off booking so thought it was worth mentioning.
