We had a really comfortable week in Cobblers Cottage. Everything about the cottage is first class and anything we thought we might need but wasn’t there is really trivial and probably reflects the modern trend to need a gadget for everything.
The lounge is very comfortable and has BT TV (not BT Sport to be clear) but that provides all the other TV channels you could want plus catch up. There’s a DAB radio.
There’s a multi fuel fire in the dining area and, after lighting it on our first night, I was made to do the same every night we ate in. It was nice to eat an evening meal with the glow and crackle of a real fire.
Kitchen has just about everything you could need including dishwasher, washing machine and a great range cooker (tip - set the clock to get the ovens to work). The range is the perfect combination for me of a gas hob and electric ovens.
Main bedroom is huge but the most important bit is a comfortable bed and it is. The second bedroom is a comfortable double.
The bathroom is superb with a great shower and very modern bath with the option of watching TV while you soak.
Parking in Beaumaris can be difficult. There are single yellow lines nearest to the cottage although they were ignored with cars parked there all day every day. I guess they might be enforced during busier parts of the year. There is a short section of double yellows right opposite the cottage and we parked there to unload the car when we arrived and to load again when we left. The rest of the time we parked most days just up from the cottage, about 100 yards away and no yellow lines, but a couple times in a nearby street which was probably 200 yards away.
There is a good choice of restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. The George and Dragon at the bottom of Church Street has good pub food and a good choice of real ales. We also enjoyed an afternoon drink most days in the bar of the The Old Bull Hotel. The bar is old world but very comfortable and there is a good choice of real ales at pub prices.
There is a great bakery a couple of minutes away.
In summary, we had a great week and loved Cobblers.
Came from half way around the world to attend a wedding and found a beautiful home away from home. Cobblers Cottage has everything you could want from comfortable beds to a high spec bathroom with a TV!. The kitchen has all the mod cons and there's a lovely outdoor area. Wifi was available. The cottage is situated about 200 meters from the pier and there are several restaurants within a few minutes walk. Beaumaris is a beautiful setting and we loved our stay there.
