We booked a short break with family. The communication from the owner was superb, even going so far as to email instruction and directions on the day before our trip. On arrival we were extremely pleased with the cottage which was of the highest standard. Towels and linen were provided and the beds ready made up. The views were wonderful even though the weather rather limited them. The kitchen facilities were of the highest standard, although we didn't use them as there was a fantastic cafe, chip shop and pub grub within easy walking distance. We could not recommend this cottage highly enough and will certainly stay there again in the future.

“Great cottage with amazing views of port”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Great cottage with all the amenities/utensils required for a wonderful stay away. It is right on the costal path which has stunning views. Not much to do in the port or town itself but the cottage has amazing views from the kitchen window/deck so no need to how out at night. Very nice and cosy.

“Just do it...well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

well came here a little later than we wanted due to car breakdown but were not disappointed in any way.

1/.pilots cottage is very clean well kept and a credit to the house keepers....very spacious cottage loads of room and a well equipped kitchen bedrooms are large and the view from the kitchen is amazing and every morning if you watch for a while you will see harbour porpoises in the bay(in the rough waters)simply could not ask any more from a holiday let
2/.almwch and port almwch ....port almwich is very quiet which is nice not a lot of noise at all just sit back chill and watch from the decking of this great holiday let port almwch has a chippy with long opening hours and a pub and a café all within 5 minutes walk almwch itself has more shops take aways etc if you need them
3/. things to do ...well there is loads from beumaris castle ,boat trips (we used the boat staridia) £25 for 1hr 20 mins boat trip for a family trip to puffin island well worth it.caernarfon castle another good day out and for beaches cemaes bay is brilliant so is terach beach near benllech bigger shops here we recommend the spar shop and the kebab shop next to the spar is amazing well worth it...so much to do and you are only around 40 mins drive from anything...this holiday let is really good if you like a quiet place next to the coastal walkway or if you have kids and just travel a little to other attractions.

one thing I will say if you like sea fishing this is the place to come the harbour is right in front of you and other points really close such as point lynas/bull bay/freshwater bay/camas bay ...and more
great alround holiday let and will visit again

“Lovely cottage in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 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.
