“Perfect”
Reviewed March 14, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This place is amazing. The cottage is spotless and everything from the towels to the bedding to the general feel of the place is very much high-end. This was our second visit and we are very much looking forward to a third. It's perfect for a family get together or a romantic break - we've done both. Dogs are very much welcome - our cocker spaniel loved it. And the private acres of garden and woodland are great for kids and dogs. It's also not far from some beautiful beaches. The fact that you can rent a cottage either side of this one as part of a package for a larger get together also make it perfect for special occasions for extended family. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

“A delightful spacious cottage, in a lovely area hosted by a very caring couple.”
Reviewed March 13, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

As a group of four we greatly enjoyed a "foodie" weekend staying at "The House In the Yard". The accommodation is spacious and very well presented and we enjoyed the homely touches of home made cakes and locally sourced biscuits. The location is ideal for walks in the countryside, forrest or beach. Libby and Mark had designed an excellent "foodie" weekend with two evenings of exceptional but contrasting meals at the "Marram Grass" on Friday and "Sosban The Old Butchers" on Saturday. We all enjoyed the informality, great service and delicious food at Marram Grass followed by the intriguing taster menu at Sosban which provided unusual flavour combination causing much discussion and disagreement on the favourite dish - I loved them all! We have all agreed that we will be returning to "The House on The Yard" to explore even further the area and hopefully enjoy further eating adventures.

“Delightful”
Reviewed January 29, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My wife and I had the opportunity to stay in the Owl Barn. The accommodation was absolutely spotless, good quality linen and a very comfy bed. The barn has been renovated to a high standard and is very cosy. Mark and Libby are warm, welcoming, and very hospitable and likeable people. Home made cake and croissants were delightful. The gardens are very nice and perfect for a little stroll in the small woodland. The chickens were fun to watch! Already looking forward to our return. We would highly recommend.

“Fantastic property in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a lovely 4 night stay at the Owl Barn. The accommodation was absolutely fantastic, Mark and Libby have thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay plus the extras like the homemade lemon drizzle cake to the fresh eggs and the bottlle of milk when we arrived we couldn't fault anything.The location is perfect for exploring Anglesey. Mark and Libby are such lovely hosts, the children loved exploring the gardens , feeding the chickens and especially the quad bike ride with Mark. We couldn't recommend it highly enough it really is a hidden gem.

“Excellent holiday cottage”
Reviewed September 18, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We chose this property for its location in Anglesey and based on the photos of the rooms. We wanted somewhere near the seaside for our grandsons first holiday. We really could not have chosen better. Firstly we received a very welcome that included a home made cake and 6 eggs. The accommodation was first class. A large carpets lounge provided loads of space for our toddler to play with few obstructions or breakable distractions. The kitchen was very well equipped and the tiled floor meant we didn't need to worry about dropped food and drink. The two bedrooms were very comfortable and the linen provided was to the highest standard. Mark and Libby our hosts were lovely and did all they could to make us feel welcome and have a great holiday. Libby provided a delicious meal for us on request which was most welcome. The cottage was about 10 minutes from the nearest beach (Newborough) and all the best attractions for the under 5s were within 15 - 20 minutes car journey so it could not have been better for us. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this is one of the best we have ever stayed in.

“Perfect venue for a large family reunion”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

We hired all three properties (the Farmhouse, Owl Barn and Woodpecker Cottage) for a large family reunion involving young children and granny and granddad. This is a perfect venue for this - the Owl Barn has a very large kitchen and living room which are both more than capable of including the whole party for a large meal etc. This facility is quite unusual: it worked perfectly for us to have three separate dwellings but be able to convene every evening. The large field at the back provided ample space for the children to play in and the woods provided added interest. The three properties are all in very good condition and kitted out to a high specification. The hosts live next door but, because of the thoughtful way the place is set out, this is not at all intrusive. They were very welcoming but left us in peace. Pretty faultless really and very good value. Highly commended.

We visited in August with our granddaughter for a few days and had a wonderful time. Libby and Mark are lovely people and provide home made cake and eggs from there own chickens on arrival. The Owl Barn was very spacious, well appointed and very clean, all you could want. In fact it was 5 star standard. It is located in a peaceful rural location so well away from traffic.The grounds are extensive and included a large lawned area and wood with laid out paths ideal for children. The local beach at Newborough was 5 minutes drive away and was ideal for our granddaughter with a gentle slope into the sea.
Would highly recommend this property and probably will be back next year.
