Great getaway owners treated us like family. Well equipped Cosby spotlessly clean soooooo relaxing. Excellent place to explore the island. A real home from home
Stayed here for 3 nights with little dog Bella. Fiona the owner was so welcoming & prior to arrival kept in contact. The cottage is rural & quiet with amazing views. Such a cosy place with gorgeous furnishings very Laura Ashley style. The log burner was a delight & the hot tub.
Beware of the washed up palm oil on newnorough beach. Our dig ate some & we had a worrying 24hrs. Keep dogs close if not on the lead.
I would recommend carreg rhys for a romantic getaway, walking holiday & day tripping. Beaumaris is worth a visit & newnorough beach accessing from newborough forest. It's £4 to park all day.
Thank you for a lovely stay & all the extras including snacks in picnic basket, fluffy dressing gowns, fleece bedding & wood for the fire.
This is the second time that we've stayed at Carreg Rhys, both times have been fabulous. Fiona & Peter (the owners) are so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. We really loved the new fluffy dressing gowns - a must when you get out of the hot tub on a cold October night!
For anyone looking to find a romantic retreat & also a base in a great location to explore Angelsey- look no further. Not only is the cottage warm & cosy with the log burner, more spacious than you'd think & great value, it really is a pet friendly place to stay.
We look forward to our next stay
This was our first time we have stopped in a cottage with our 1 year old Basset Hound Eddie. We have had an absolutely fantastic week! Fiona and Pete are absolutely amazing! We read all the reviews before hand, so we were sure we were going somewhere lovely and it was! Their attention to detail is impeccable! We was met by Pete and walked into the cottage with candles lit, a lovely welcome hamper and petals on the bed and in the bath! The cottage is decorated and furnished finely; very sumptuous and cosy! Fiona then came to say hello, once she had greeted her other guests at their sister cottage. Soon as we met Fiona and Pete it was like we had known them for years!!! Throughout the week Fiona and Pete were there when we wanted a chat and if we needed helping out about where to go on our daytime adventures (I'm sure they will remember pizza gate! Private joke!). We were really sad to leave, but will be sure to be returning in the near future!!! We have not only had a lovely time enjoying the many beaches and sights of Anglesey and Wales but have made two lovely friends! See you soon!!! X x x x
My partner and I booked Carreg Ryhs for an early January stay to beat the winter blues. We have stayed before and knew what to expect - a relaxing and cosy break. We took our dog again who always has such a big fuss made of her by the owners Fiona and Pete. Their dogs had just had a litter of puppies so also had some much needed pet therapy.
There was a problem with the hot tub so the owners offered to let us stay at Bwthyn Megan as the previous guests had just vacated. This is the sister cottage just up the road which also had tub. Very impressed with both cottages which are finished to a high standard. Very Laura Ashley. Fiona and Pete couldn't do enough for us and it was lovely to meet them again. They really do take pride in their work.
Arriving to a roaring log fire is a nice touch and provides a lovely welcome.
Sad to be home now, we will be returning.
We enjoy cottage Holidays and had many but this is the best we have had. Fiona and Peter greeted us as if we were great friends, and soon were. Such a warm welcome and such a cosy retreat. Warm wood burning stove comfortable bed and even a welcome hamper to great us. The views are lovely with Snowdonia in the near distance. There is a hot tub right outside the door but tucked away in a secluded private corner. Nothing nicer to sit out in the hot tub with a tumbler of wine in good or wild weather then hop out and into a warm cottage with a blazing log fire. Dogs are welcomed with plenty of grounds for them to use.
Although Carreg Rhys is secluded shops and supermarkets are only a few miles away as are the beaches and Newborough Forest. Plenty to see and do if you want to roam further afield, Ideal for bird watching once a favourite haunt of C.F.Tunnicliffe probably our best remembered bird artist.
Wow, what can I say? Fresh flowers, roaring fire (we arrived on the only evening of the summer when there was a storm raging!), lit candles, welcome hamper full of goodies, freshly laundered Oscar de La Renta robes; all waiting for us when we arrived, alongside the gorgeous, ultra energetic Fiona.
Fiona and Peter are so friendly and personable you feel you have returned to see old friends, but they don't intrude - just check you have everything you need to ensure you completely enjoy your stay and relax! I was amazed by Fiona's ability to remember things I had mentioned and to refer to them and check you were ok (we had booked the cottage as our son was on his first big trip away without us, to Thailand and Fiona was asking how we were and what he was up to?) Sooooo nice and sooooo thoughtful. She even offered to collect us from the local pub one evening when she bumped into us on a quiet lane near to the cottage!
The location of the cottage is ultra peaceful - a haven of tranquillity with only the odd moo of a cow to interrupt quiet contemplation as your worries subside as you sit in the hot tub. I now know why the village is called Paradwys (paradise!) The hot tub is fantastic and completely secluded. Plastic glasses are provided to ensure there are no nasty accidents as you enjoy a glass or three!!
The cottage is really well equipped, with everything you could possibly need. The décor is really tasteful and bed and furniture very comfortable. There is even a walk in wardrobe! Nothing is too much trouble - Fiona lent my husband her hand held Dyson to hoover dog hairs out of our car after seeing him using the vac belonging to the cottage!
One well behaved dog is welcome (we have a daft Labrador, who came with us) but I was really pleased that they are only allowed downstairs as I am an asthma sufferer and tend to be a bit susceptible when I sleep.
The Wifi was fantastic. Despite wanting to unwind and relax from the stresses and strains I was desperate to hear from our son in Thailand. We communicated on WhatsApp without issue and I was able to look at photo's he had posted online within seconds.
Anglesey is truly beautiful and we don't think we could have had a better base from which to explore it.
Thank you Fiona and Peter for a truly lovely week and we wish you every success xx.
