We really enjoyed our stay in Brynsiencyn. Our preliminary contact with David the owner was helpful, the directions for finding it were excellent, and gaining access to the property easy.
When we arrived it was beautifully warm, thanks to the underfloor heating downstairs, and the new convector heaters. The log burner makes a great focal point to the sitting room, and logs are provided for a couple of fires, further stocks being available for purchase locally.
There were daffodils to welcome us as well as milk in the fridge, and a packet of Welsh Cakes.
The kitchen is very well equipped and looks out onto a small garden, which gets the afternoon and evening sun. The bathroom is a little small, but there was a good shower, and plenty of hot water from an electric heater.
The bedroom was spacious and had good views of the Snowdon range on the other side of the Menai Straits. We found the 5’ bed very comfortable, and the bed linen and duvet were of a high quality.
There was a great range of maps, guides, and the owner has compiled a comprehensive guide to the property and locality. There are a few DVDs provided, plenty of games, and a few books. There is a fairly basic “open-all-hours” shop in the village, but at the time we visited the local pub was being refurbished.
We’re very happy to recommend this property.
Booked for 3 nights for a long weekend, lovely cottage, well equipped and comfortable. Good location for a weekend exploring and will highly recommend for others. Myself, partner and dog couldn't have asked for more.
Owners went above and beyond to help make the weekend and we will definitely consider future return trips.
All in all its a little hidden gem.
Stayed here last weekend. Had an amazing time. The cottage was well equipt cosy and really homely. We didn't want to come home.
A lovely little cottage in a gorgeous spot, the views from the front are just wonderful. Very comfortable, everything you need in the cottage. Close to Newborough and it's wonderful beach and woods, one very happy springer! Would definitely stay there again.
Lovely warm cottage, went away for a quiet New Years and it was perfect: incredibly comfortable bed and great wood burner plus a selection of DVD's. Nothing much in the nearby village bar one pub but Newborough Beach (20 mins drive) is spectacular. Sadly no toilet roll was provided which I saw noted on previous reviews - seems like a basic provision to me but hey ho, likewise only a few squirts of washing up liquid left and a broken bulb in the bedroom. A little more attention and this would be perfect.
The cottage is just as it looks in the photos, you will bang your head occasionally on the door frames - even when remembering to duck on one way through but it's an old Welsh cottage that quickly becomes your home.
When we arrived we found it in an absolutely spotless condition with all utensils provided including a caffitere, tea towels, toaster etc. It is in a perfect position for getting around Anglesey, with a selection of great beaches if you carry on driving through Brynsiencyn but beware of the little petrol station you will come across who has different prices on the pumps to that on the signs.... (1.18 unleaded..)
Across the road down the small lane by the carpark you will find a beautiful quiet part of the Straits which is a couple of miles but well worth it and Hootons farmshop up the road may be a little overpriced but we did go back for their Mocha squares a couple of times, just set a budget before going in... could get out of hand.
The Sea zoo hasn't changed one bit for the last 25 odd years since they revamped it but for 7-8 pounds each for adults is not a bad place to spend a few hours.
We found a brilliant hardware shop and garage/market a few miles out of Llanfairpg (towards the Holyhead end) which sold logs etc.
The garden is great and just needs the outside lights looking at a bit but we did not want to leave and the views of Snowdon and Caernarfon castle down the straits topped it off.
