“Fantastic week in a such a lovely place!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This was our first visit to Anglesey. We spent a very sunny Easter week in Pilots Cottage and couldn't recommend it highly enough.
It was perfectly suited to our family of 5; including 3 daughters in their late teens and a dog. The lay-out is great, and I must admit we spent most of our time in the kitchen, watching the sea through the incredible feature window! What a view!!
The cottage is really well equipped and the owners have obviously put a lot of heart and thought into it.
We would love to return..... as long as the same sunshine can be guaranteed ;)

“Great cottage with amazing views”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

2nd visit to pilot cottage. Very much home from home with great facilities and everything you need, Brilliant views from the kitchen with uninterupted views over the harbour.
The town has a few supermarkets and the indian restaurant food is great and also does take away.
Looking forward to staying again.

“Gorgeous Cottage”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We just arrived home after a weekend break in pilots cottage.
The owner was very helpful and even emailed to reassure us about the recent bad weather.
The cottage is so comfortable and clean, all the beds were made up lovely for us. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. As all reviews the views from the kitchen are gorgeous we could even watch the men fishing at the harbour. Only problem we had was we should of stayed longer.. will definitely book again and would highly recommend this cottage.
Enjoy....

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”
Reviewed October 21, 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”
Reviewed August 1, 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
