“A great place to stay”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here just over a month ago and i have to say the place was wonderful for a big group of all ages, It provided a really great base and a spacious place to return to after our adventures around the island. We did have an issue with the TV but the owner came round immediately and fixed the dish cable which had come lose from it.

I would say the house is very stylish and appealing to all tastes, the kitchen area and pool table seemed to be were we spent most of our time whilst in the house. We will return here at some point in the future.

“Great 1st impression, shame it didn't last”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife, four kids and my parents arrived with high expectations of the bungalow after reading the reviews on here. At 1st we were very impressed by the space indoors and the views from the roof terrace. The bungalow itself was tidy though very tired. Flooring is very wobbly in places and the hot water for the kitchen hot water was not great. The worse thing within the bungalow is the smell in the bunkbed room next to the family bathroom. There is a box in the bedroom which really smells. We had to leave windows and doors open all the time when my 3 and 6 year old girls went to bed. Because of the open plan this made it difficult to talk and relax in the evening because of the noise levels. No wifi was another issue and judging by the comments left by previous guests, this seems to be an ongoing issue. Real shame because the wifi was one of the reasons we chose this place due to having kids.

Now the biggest issue was not the bungalow itself but the site. It does not say anywhere on the booking site we used that guests can't use the swings etc. My kids as good as got told to leave. We went out for a day trip to come back and find someone had left a note on the door advising us our kids could not use the swings etc and that we should not park outside the bungalow the way we did (one car down the side and the other on the drive). The person in the caravan next to the bungalow didn't seem to have an issue.....just some other busy body. This put my 10 year old twins off from riding their bikes on the site. A real shame.

The owners should detail this information before booking rather than in the welcome book. I feel I am probably rating the bungalow too highly with a three but I am only going this high because of the location.

Would I book here again....no.
Would I visit the area again....100%. Beautiful part of Wales.

Thankyou for review Sheila, hopefully I can address some of your issues here. The house is a private house and as such for public liability reason we cant allow guests to use the swings etc on the caravan park, we are hoping to negotiate with the new owners of the park an annual fee for children to use the swings. The WIFI has been an issue, however we hope to resolve this very soon with BT. Nobody has ever complained of a smell before however we believe this may have been due to a crack in the shower base in the adjacent room which we were not aware, this will be addressed ASAP.

We still believe the bungalow is beautiful as is the area and all of our reviews would agree with that, the laminate flooring throughout gives the house a good clean look, however we will be renewing it this winter as we decorate and upgrade the house continuously. As we said in our correspondence you are more than welcome back anytime as you looked after the house really well and your reply to that was very encouraging and understanding, therefore on that note we hope to see you again at some point in the near future.

“Lovely cottage”

person found this review helpful

We stayed here whilst competing in a rally at Angelesy Circuit. There were 8 of us...we did notice the ninth bed, after reading about its location in the informative welcome book. The cottage was perfect for our needs, and the log burner was a welcome treat when drying wet clothing.
We didn't have a problem with parking, noted others had commented in it in the guest book. We had a car and two transit vans, one with a rally car on trailer.
Would recommend.

I went with a group of 9 for my birthday weekend and could not fault the place. beautifully decorated and well equipped, the pictures actually don't do the place justice.
the only minor issues we had was the 'sleeps nine', unless someone is willing to sleep on the couch... there are only 8 beds.
the electric meter was left in £10.48 debt, however the owner was more than reasonable and transferred money to my account to fix this.
all in all it was a perfect getaway for a group and I will definitely be booking this again.

Thank you for such a lovely review it is so nice when people have a great stay in our holiday home. However, there are 9 beds, one is called a trundle bed and pulls out from underneath the other one, you must have missed it. Many thanks again we look forward to your return.

We stayed at the bungalow for 3 days and I have to say we loved it. The kids had loads of room, our family of 9 fitted in great and the space and style of the place was just fantastic. I can't really criticise the place although it would benefit from wifi. The roof garden gave us wonderful views with a glass of wine in hand and the pool table gave us hours of fun....only problem our stay was too short....we will return!!
