Excellent accomodation in a great location for exploring the many wonderful beaches of Anglesey. Marvellous and informative host who rang after our arrival to check that we had settled in ok and to offer helpful suggestions about where to eat and places to visit with our dog. Could not have asked for anything more. Truly felt like a home away from home.

This lovely cottage is in an idyllic setting and perfect for a relaxing break in the sun. We have enjoyed a wonderful week, walking and visiting some very interesting places and there are very many more to explore. We appreciate how well equipped this cottage is and especially Stuarts telephone call on Tuesday to hear that all was well. Many thanks.

A wonderful home- the perfect place for a warm, cosy joint 35th/ 70th birthday weekend. Bitterey cold weather – the tail end of storm Emma but the Smithy was so comfortable, spacious and so interesting in terms of history and architecture. Managed to get some terrific coastal walking in and good birdwatching – black guillemots being the highlight. Thanks for all your help, we hope to be back.

A wonderful week! A family get together in a relaxing well appointed cottage. It certainly lives up to its billing and is faultlessly well equipped. Thanks to all for a much needed relaxing break. We will be back I am sure.
