“Lovely cottage in great location”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed in Feb 2013 for a couple of days - Pilots cottage is perched on a high spot overlooking Amlwch Port harbour and the Irish Sea beyond, and has a real sense of exposure to the elements! Inside the accom is of a high standard, and really cosy. We particularly appreciated having the gas fire on after the children had gone to bed: we just sat and listened to the wind howling off the sea, which was very atmospheric!
The kitchen is a real standout feature of this place though: it has a giant semi-circular window with direct views of the sea and the rugged headland and loads of space / facilities for cooking. I really enjoyed just sitting with a coffee watching the sea, the weather, a few boats here and there etc etc.
Amlwch Port itself isn't a massive draw - there is interesting stuff there like the local museum on the port, but otherwise not much else. There are however great things nearby Red Wharf Bay, Bull Bay, various pubs etc, and the countryside being a little wild in nature is one of the draws of this place!
We'll be back - many thanks!

Management Response
19 Dec 2012
Thanks for your comments glad you enjoyed your stay, sorry that the weather wasn't great. Pilots Cottage now has Sky Freeview (installed September 2012) to combat the issues with TV reception during poor weather conditions as the sky dish gets a better reception than an aerial. We also don't advertise the cottage as having internet connection but have left a 3G dongle for customers to use during their stay.

“So much better than just home from home...this cottage does Anglesey proud”
Reviewed July 13, 2011 for a stay in December 2010

You know when you go away, you want all the comforts of being at home, but just a little bit more - well this cottage overlooking the sea entrance to Amlwch Port has so much to offer it instantly makes your stay an enjoyable and relaxing one.

We stayed there with a small group of friends for a birthday celebration during the “snow season” last December - the large cottage looked beautiful from the outside covered in snow and upon arriving through the old traditional half and half wooden door the inside was immaculately decorated and welcoming to us all. The little touches of fresh milk in the fridge for the morning brew, champagne glasses out ready to toast the birthday celebrations, and restaurant contact numbers/cards for eating out over the weekend, it all added to an already enjoyable and unforgettable stay after the first few hours in the property.
Not that you’d want to leave the kitchen with the amazing view out to the sea (see holiday lettings pictures) but The Ship Inn that’s located in the restaurant booklet in the property, is most definitely worth a visit within close driving distant near Red Wharf Bay.

I would have no hesitation in recommending for family, friends and work colleagues what this property has to offer for future stays, it really is that brilliant.
