About Rosie Bloor

My name is Rosie & I am married to Phil & have a son called Will & a lively dog called Rusty.

Rosie Bloor purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Rosie Bloor chose Anglesey

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is only a short drive to Lligwy beach. It's location is ideal with villages close by, such as Moelfre, Benllech & Amlwch.

We have free wifi and you can take advantage of our 2 mountain bikes for exploring the beauty Anglesey has to offer.

Lovely little cottage, perfect for a family of 3

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is really easy to find in a beautiful area of the countryside. Just a short drive to the nearby beach and shops. Lots of lovely walks and cycling routes nearby. All equipment provided for my toddler and lovely to have a place to stay with our dog. The cottage was perfect for our needs and would definitely return.

Very nice property

  • 3 of 5

Bathroom was flooded with rain water as the roof was being repaired I don't think you should rent property's out if they are under repair as our Friday nite stay was disturbed by the builder cleaning all the water up which then in turn blew the fuse to the shower then we had to go searching for the fuse box apart from that a nice stay

Owner's Response: I am sorry storm Doris arrived during your weekend stay and I hope it didn't prevent you seeing the delights Anglesey has to offer. Just to apologize for the inconvience of the leak in the bathroom on your arrival, which appeared after the housekeeper had been in at 2pm. I hope you agree the builder arrived promptly to resolve the matter, as soon as you reported it. I hope this didn't inconvience you too much.i do hope you will return again to see the delights of Anglesey once the weather starts improving.
