Lovely location only a short 5 minute walk to the town centre shops, pubs, restaurants and the castle.
Children loved crabbing on the pier ( caught 14 crabs in a few attempts ).
The cottage is located close to a free parking section on the road and it was easy to find a parking space. If you are staying within the town you won't need your car once parked.
The owner Wendy is a very nice person who is accessible for any requests or information you may require.
Enjoyable holiday with our grandchildren.
Hillcrest is a terraced cottage, perfectly located in Beaumaris, near to sea, shops and eating places. The cottage is dog friendly, they even get a basket of goodies and treats! The small sunny back yard is lovely for sitting out with a drink or coffee. The owners have obviously tried hard to make it welcoming, and we appreciated that. Toiletries were provided which is unusual. We also got fresh eggs from owners chickens, a bottle of wine, a lovely cheese pack and home made jam - far above our expectations.
The floors are wood throughout and as my husband walks with a stick we were a little nervous of the stairs but I am sure it would not be an issue for other holiday makers. I would recommend this cottage.
Hillcrest is 'Good' - better than 'average' but not 'very good'. TripAdvisor doesn't seem have a star rating for that, so we felt it fairer to grade as 4*.
Plus points - good location, pre arrival information clear, relatively spacious, decent bed, linen and towels.
Minus points - I don't know if we the first visitors for a while but it could have a done with a spring clean - quite a few dust webs and the outdoor area was a bit unkempt with a few stray cigarette butts which seemed to have missed the intended plant pot.
We would have found a few more (beer) glasses useful, along with salad bowl, and some tongues for grilled food.
In summary, the decor is traditional and if truthful could do with a bit of freshen up in the near future. But on the whole it offers decent value for money and we'd consider using it again.
I recently stayed at Hillcrest with a good friend for a long weekend away. We found the cottage cosy and warm, so important if you are booking a holiday home in the winter months. The owner had set the heating up to allow the cottage to remain warm, plus logs and coal were provided to light the fire.
As others have mentioned, a generous welcome awaits with lots of goodies and essentials ready when you arrive. The house is a relaxing place to chill out (and get a good night's sleep) thanks to comfy beds and sofas. Beyond the doorstep everything is a short walk away, including cafes, restaurants, pubs and local shops. Even the castle is a very short stroll and the view of the mountains as you walk down the street is a constant reminder of the natural beauty of the area. Parking wasn't a problem while we were there and each night we managed to get parked within a hundred yards of the property. Clear instructions are provided for accessing the property and it was easy to lock up on our departure day. The patio at the back looked perfect for sitting out in warmer weather - something we hope to do when we return!
Many thanks to Wendy and Roger for the use of your beautiful holiday cottage. This is a great holiday home in a beautiful part of Wales!
A lovely cosy cottage, with very thoughtful owners who go the extra mile to make it a special place to stay.
We had a lovely short stay at Hillcrest. It's very homely and has all the equipment and facilities for a really pleasant trip - the weather meant we had the opportunity to enjoy both the small garden and the wood burning stove and we really enjoyed our welcome hamper. All communication prior and during our trip made sure that our arrival and stay was as hassle free as possible.
The cottage is located right in the heart of town, making it a great base to explore Beaumaris and further afield.
