This is our second stay at Quay Cottage and we would definitely return. Last year we stayed earlier in the year when it was much quieter, just before lockdown, which suited us better. It is the epitome of a seaside cottage. The views from the bay window upstairs are to die for. The location is, in our opinion, idyllic. Once you get stocked up with provisions, you really don't have to move from The Bay. Out of the front door and onto the beach, once you have navigated over the large pebbles! You need to be sturdy on your feet! Watching the ebb and flow of the tides throughout the day is mesmerising.. However, as to be expected Red Wharf was very busy. We felt quite privileged to have our own parking space! Quay Cottage has so much potential but there are certain elements that let the property down. We were unable to use the back garden, again. The steep, uneven steps are a safety hazard and we are not elderly! A handrail would be a bonus. However, the back of the property is very untidy and doesn't look like it has been touched in a while. It would be such a bonus to be able to sit out the back in private but at this moment in time that is not possible. I would worry for children playing out there. I don't think they could, safely. As for a Covd deep clean, I find that questionable. Or any deep clean come to that. It therefore begs the question why you have to be out of the property by 09.30 and cannot gain access until 17,30. All three toilets require a good clean, under rims, etc. The kitchen bin could do with a good clean, hairs in the shower traps. There were cobwebs in evidence and I don't feel the floors had been mopped. Bulbs were out and worst of all, I took a cafetiere out of the cupboard to find it had half an inch of stale, coffee coloured water in it!! The Crockpot smells of old stew!! Surely there must be a standard checklist to work through prior to guests arrival? Plenty of kitchen equipment although need a decent corkscrew. The one provided is very cheap and basic.. Hate to be negative but you asked for our feedback. However, despite the few niggles, we would .certainly return but when you pay £1,000 for a weeks holiday you would expect the bees knees. I also appreciate that you are paying for such an amazing location. My wife's eyes were a tad moist when we had to depart! Thank you for an amazing stay.

After a few hiccups on arrival (no cot even though requested) and heating not working, we had a lovely week. Great location and outlook, didn't really need to leave the cottage. Owner was helpful in resolving cot issue and drove over himself to fix heating. We also fed back to owner issues with cleanliness which is being done by third party. There was spiders /cobwebs, damp, dog smell. On leaving, we advised cleaners the dishes in dishwasher were clean so they would not need to wash them, to which they replied they didn't anyway. I had assumed it was part of covid cleaning! Unfortunately house is next to boat house cafe that had a private function on. Music and drinking went on until 11.30pm with no respect for covid regulations or neighbours, and windows did not block noise in front bedrooms. The kitchen was lovely and appliances great quality. The kitchen equipment does need to be much better stocked. Cheap bottle opener that hardly worked, tin opener didn't work, only two tablets left for dishwasher for a week stay, not enough toilet paper, etc. Considering I'd enquired about these beforehand it was gauling there sas not enough for a week stay.The bedding and towels were good quality and we enjoyed the bench at front of property. Ice rates 3*as When paying this much for a cottage, I expect everything to be 5* and all things bountifully provided.

Delightful and very comfortable accommodation, with outstanding views from the lounge window. With walks and eateries from the doorstep.

The design especially upstairs is extraordinary. The views of Redwarf bay are unparalleled. The house is lovely. The cleaning wasn't the best - lots of cobwebs over lights, in corners, lots of spiders (not good for granny) and dust along stuff and a bit musty in downstairs bedrooms/ bathrooms. But that's a bit fussy... the basic clean was all great, and the set out amazing.

Tavern on The Bay

  • A ten-minute walk from the cottage, serves fantastic food at one of the best restaurants on Anglesey. Beautifully fitted out in a modern style, with views from your table that are absolutely stunning. An excellent base from which to explore the coastal path and beach with ready access to cliff top walks and strolls along the sand.

Extensive cycling trails

  • What better way to experience all the natural beauty that Anglesey has to offer than by bike. After all, cycling gives you the chance to enjoy a change of pace, feel the wind in your hair and really enjoy the unspoilt scenery and rolling landscapes that Anglesey is so rich in.

Beaumaris Castle

  • On the Island of Anglesey is the great unfinished masterpiece. It was built as one of the 'iron ring' of North Wales castles by the English monarch Edward I, to stamp his authority on the Welsh. But it was never finished money and supplies ran out before the fortifications reached their full height. The castle was built on a marsh and that is where it found its name; the Norman-French builders called it Beaux-Marais which translates as 'beautiful marshes”.

Food and drink

  • There are countless restaurants, farmers markets and cafe's around Anglesey. Beaumaris is a magnet for writers and artists, foodies and photographers. Take a boat from Beaumaris harbour and visit Puffin Island or experience a thrilling ride on a rib boat down the Menai Strait.

Holy Island

  • One of the most exciting and spectacular locations on Anglesey a birdwatchers paradise with an RSPB visitors centre beyond which is the South Stack Lighthouse 400 steps down - not for the faint-hearted but views from the lighthouse itself are breathtaking.

Llynnon Wind Mill, Llandeusant

  • The only fully operational windmill on the island where visitors can see the flour being ground followed by bread being made in the traditional way at the bakery. Enjoy a light snack at the tearooms.

Iron Age Roundhouses, Llandeusant

  • Follow the footpath from Llynnon Mill to the re-constructed Iron Age round houses, one of which is furnished and decorated to reflect life in pre-historic times.

Menai Bridge

  • Set along the beautiful Menai Strait, Menai Bridge town has excellent shops - visit Benjamin Lee Chocolatier & Patissier Shop to buy hand made treats or lunch at Dylan's for locally caught seafood. The location of this restaurant is stunning right above the water and almost below Telford's elegant suspension bridge. Also in the town there is a Waitrose the only one in North Wales

Beaumaris

  • Visit romantic Beaumaris Castle surrounded by a moat - children will love the scary town gaol also open to the public. Lovely independent shops abound here. Do visit the Janet Bell Gallery, a renowned local artist, and buy prints of her depictions of the island to remember your holiday.

Plas Newydd Country House & Garden (N.T.)
