We stayed for 4 days in the old shop and found everything we could possibly need.The cottage was warm and cosy with very comfortable beds.The perfect getaway central to everywhere, Benllech Bay only a 5 minute drive away.We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.Its ideal for a family of four with lots to do.

Neat and stylish and well supplied.

  • 5 of 5

The description was accurate enough for us; the property was clean and well maintained; the owner was contactable, concerned and friendly; yes we would recommend this property; we liked the Pilot Boat Inn and had Sunday lunch there. The hours of food took a little getting used to. If we didn't eat a meal by 3pm then it wasn't available until 6pm in many places and not available after 9pm. It was a lovely little place to come home to, easy on the eye, stylish and uncluttered. Heat was available. The kitchen had everything but someone has not understood not to use metal utensils on the non-stick pans and you can hardly expect the owner to have supplied stainless steel ones (expensive and might be walked off with).. We adjusted the couch, realising that the back cushions tend to slip down the back of the base cushions. We only used the TV and looked over the videos but didn't find any we must watch. Most of them seem lighthearted. Everything worked well. but towel ring needs fixing and top shelf in bathroom cabinet since it collapsed with my toothpaste on it. Who's to say when this instability damage occurred. Everything had been set up well; the table in the kitchen diner just so. We might have been more efficient had we read and studied the instructions in the book left for visitors at the beginning of the holiday. It is a quiet hamlet but easy to find after one or two days, especially as owners had thoughtfully left a desk pad of maps of Angelsey which visitors are obviously expected to tear off and use. There was also a basket of brochures and booklets for ideas on where to go. We usually ate out and came 'home' to relax and watch TV. The beds were dressed beautifully. Andrew said it was the best cottage we'd stayed in. Very attractive with a dining set in the front garden had the weather been up to it. Parking was no problem and able to park right outside gate to property but Andrew parked in a lay-by a little up the road to give passing farm traffic maximum room.There was not much traffic and it was very quiet at night We managed to push down the panic when the keysafe didn't seem to respond immediately but it's a knack which is soon discovered..

A comfortable homely cottage

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed on Anglesey many times but never in a cottage. The cottage was lovely, home from home with everything we needed and comfortable. Its rural setting ensures peace and quiet. We will definitely come again, the children and dog all enjoyed it too. Rosie was really helpful and answered any queries promptly.

The pilot boat pub is good and nearby Lligwy beach were where we spent a number of days is a great beach with toilets and a little cafe. We will definitely stay again xx

Peaceful country location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is spacious and well kept in a quiet rural location, Although situated near a crossroads there is very little traffic or noise. There was a hare walking down the road one morning as I loaded the car. The cottage is well kept with all the modern fittings you could want. The location is excellent for exploring the north coast of Anglesey.

Lovely cosy cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fabulous time staying at the cottage in March this year (2016). It had everything you need and was very cosy. The owner Rosie was lovely and provided really useful information for a perfect stay. The location was great to get to anywhere on the island within a short drive. We would highly recommend the cottage from couples to families with children and hope to stay again ourselves very soon. Thank you Rosie for everything :-).

Near perfection

  • 5 of 5

Cosy, clean and comfortable. The cottage was very well equipped - definitely home from home. Booking was very easy with lots of chatty, friendly e-mails. The area was ideal, central to all parts of the island. The one minor problem is because we went in the winter, the cottage was a bit cold on the first evening we was there as the heating is mainly storage heaters which were not on when we arrived. There is an electric fire as well which we was very grateful for. But with everything else, and that the price that we paid was so reasonable, We would not hesitate to book again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments & we welcome you back anytime. The instructions for outgoing guests do advise what to do with the storage heater settings for the winter & summer months & it seems in your case they were set to the lowest setting (thinking it was summer). This is something we will keep an eye on.

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with Anglesey, many years ago. In the summer, the beautiful beaches remind us of times spent in Portugal, but unlike Portugal, there are very few places where you can sit on a beautiful, quiet sandy beach and see the farmers harvesting their crops on the coastline. Rusty adores the sea. If the weather is not so good, there is plenty to do with all the beautiful villages and the coastal footpath that joins them together. Because of this love of the Island we purchased this quaint old cottage in the quiet hamlet of Parc. We would love others to share our passion for the Island and our cottage.
