“Wine, cake and log fire!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Booked last minute to get away with Wife and teenage children, was the weekend of the 'Storm' and this made it all the better, the cold and wind made the cottage cosier, plenty of underfloor heating and a log fire warmed us and the cottage up!

Arrived late on the Friday night to be met with a gorgeous local cake and a bottle of Red! perfect, children loved it as had their own space and Xbox! alas the Wifi couldn't penetrate the 18" stone walls(Hurrah!!) so 2 x disconnected kids = 1 x fab game of Monopoly!

The cottage is superbly furnished and has a fully equipped kitchen including a neatly stored washing machine, tumble drier and freezer, bedrooms are beautifully set out with gorgeous linen and towelling. 5 minute stroll down to a fab beach with rocks, rock pools and caves! with plenty of great local (ish) pubs and a well stocked shop in the next village you'll have everything you need for a get-away-from-the-world break or with plenty to do locally an adventure get-away.

Just book and enjoy!

“Great location, but .....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Initially the cottage looked clean, but upon further inspection there were cobwebs throughout. We were greeted with our welcome package of a local cake and bottle of wine - very welcome, but as we went to put the wine in the fridge door, the shelf gave way (wondered what the pieces of plastic were!) Luckily we were able to save the wine, but it was obvious that this shelf would be useless! Next problem occurred when we tried to get a pan from the pan drawer which would not open for the dishwasher handle. Eventually managed to get a pan, but when we wanted to load the dishwasher with our dirty pots, we then couldn't pull down the door because of the pan cupboard handle. Bad design flaw that didn't end there. Having eventually opened the dishwasher, the whole unit pulled forward as it wasn't fastened in - the door was scraping on the floor. We reported the problems to the owner first thing on Saturday morning, but had to live with this for all our holiday. To make matters worse because the door was constantly dragging on the floor, it eventually fell off completely.

All in all not the standards we would expect from a cottage costing £400 at this time of year.

Final point of clarification, the cottage is located on Anglesey not Holyhead.

“Fabulous cottage, location and facilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Booked to stay at Bwthyn Derwen last minute. We were looking for somewhere quiet but with outside space and beaches to visit as we were travelling with an active 5 year old! The pictures on the website looked amazing and the reality did not let it down. The spectacular views on the drive down from Liverpool made the 2.5 hour car journey worth it. On arrival, I was so impressed with the cottage. The ultra modern furniture and facilities made our stay very pleasant and luxurious. The bedrooms and beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were well stocked up with towels and essentials. The high spec kitchen and all the gadgets any top kitchen would have, made our self catering holiday very comfortable. The living area and dining room were very spacious and would easily accommodate over 6 people. The games, books, magazines, Xbox, DVD and other facilities made sure our family evenings were entertained. The outside space was the highlight for me and the weather just enhanced this even more. The private patio and communal garden area gave us plenty of space to enjoy the sun and we dined out there every day. I would highly recommend this cottage for people who want to get away for some peace and quiet, but who have the facility to drive only 5mins to local shops and glorious beaches. I've already looked at availability to get back!!
