“A Haven indeed!”
Reviewed March 18, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

From the moment we placed the booking and received an immediate response from Julie we knew we'd made a good decision. Booking communications from the owners exceeded expectation as did the cottage itself! Don't be deceived by the view of the outside of the property. Hafan is far from pokey. From the moment one crosses the threshold it's clear that a great deal of thought and care has gone into the planning and execution of a perfect holiday home. No detail has been spared to make Hafan a real home from home. Quality throughout, right down to the information booklet on the property which is simply the best I've come across. Clear, concise, and to the point.
As for Beaumaris, it is quiet in early March but the welcome is nonetheless warm and the stunning scenery no less beautiful. We toured the island and discovered a real gem of a beach at Newborough. Can't believe this place hasn't been on my radar on previous trips. The walk along the beach to Llanddwyn island is not to be missed! (but don't tell everyone!)

Thanks so much for your very kind review. It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay so much. We visit Hafan regularly ourselves and have spent a lot of time ensuring the cottage is home from home - I'm so glad you liked it. I'm also pleased you found Newborough beach and the Llandwyn island - one of my favourite places! Please do return again soon.

“Beautiful cottage, lovely location”
Reviewed January 28, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is an extremely pretty property, beautifully renovated and decorated, with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Considerable thought has been taken to make this a home from home. The location in the middle of Beaumaris is ideal for the lovely shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Thoroughly and highly recommended.

Thanks so much for your review. It's great to hear you loved the cottage so much and found it a home from home. Beaumaris is a wonderful base for a holiday and we are lucky that Hafan is just a few minutes walk from all the town has to offer. Thanks again and please do return soon.

“Perfect Cozy Get-away”
Reviewed January 15, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Hafan House was the most perfect cottage for our wintery get-away in Wales. We loved the house - everything about it. It was immaculate, well-decorated, inviting and cozy (important in winter!). The gas fireplace was a lovely touch that we appreciated on the cold nights (although the heater works just fine). The bed was comfortable and the cottage had every amenity you could want. We really hope to come back and stay again, but this time with more friends or family! There is plenty of room.
Beaumaris is a lovely town with plenty of restaurants, pubs, and lovely walks. We were so happy to have found this rental and it was by far the best place we stayed on our entire trip!

“Perfect haven”
Reviewed November 26, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Hafan is the most wonderful cottage, a real home from home. beautifully decorated to a very high standard, with everything one could possibly want .Great location ,quiet street but moments from all Beaumaris has to offer. Must mention the most comfortable beds, best nights sleep ever ( what make are the mattresses?!). Favourite restaurants are The Pier Cafe, particularly on a sunny day, and Dylan's in Menai Bridge. The owner, Julie, could not have been more helpful and friendly. I was very sad to leave but will hopefully be back one day. Many many thanks.

Thanks so much for your very kind review. It's wonderful to hear that guests have enjoyed the cottage just as much as we do and found it home from home. It's always hard to leave! You're always very welcome to stay again. P.S. Marks and Spencer and Bensons for Beds for the mattresses :-)

“Just perfect”
Reviewed October 22, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

Simply perfect. We travel to this part of the country 4 times a year and this is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in around Beaumaris. What makes this cottage so special it's owners attention to detail, furnishings, wonderful features and prime location.

It's not the biggest 3 bed cottage, however we were a party of 4 adults and a 4 year old and there was lots of room. Here are the top features:

My 4 year old' top 5 best bits about the house

1. A brilliant bedroom with a lovely bunk bed which made a great den
2. The huge selection of DVD's for the early evening
3. The chest outside full of nets and buckets
4. The games in the lounge
5. Having breakfast on the stools in the kitchen watching the seagulls through the skylights.

The best bits for adults

1. Extremely comfy beds
2. Super clean home and great bathroom
3. The beautiful features and home furnishings that add the extra touch
4. Well appointed kitchen
5. The Bluetooth sound system for evening music

Location

It's less than a 2 minute walk from castle street, the sea and the pubs....oh and the shops! Probably the UK's best bakers is almost next door, ( who even sell you bread from 0630 in the morning by knocking on the little blue door,) don't consider booking anywhere else. This is a top end, perfectly priced cottage, and what makes it stand out is how well all the guests look after it. It's certainly not your usual cottage.

Thank you for having us!

“Gorgeous place like a home from home.”

We had a lovely weekend staying at Hafan cottage with my young family, very comfortable
with everything you need on site. Julie had left us a bottle of wine and bara brith cake on our arrival. Thanks again and heartily recommend this beautiful cottage for a lovely place to stay in a beautiful part of the country with lots to see and do.
