The apartment has a unique position being on the first floor with its large picture windowed lounge (and main bedroom) facing the sea. The view is amazing, helped along as there are rocky islands 100 yards or so from the beach so you can watch the sea crashing up all day long and for practical purposes, the bit between the rocky islands and the small cove is always calm - there's lots of tiny coves along this stretch of coast.
It's clean, well furnished and comfortable with all the equipment and furnishings you'd expect - the communal entrance could be better but then again, it's shared with another apartment so I guess maintenance is not easy to arrange. Location is on a narrow road along the coast from the village proper with only the odd house here and there so it's certainly quiet. Off road parking at the side of the property is pretty secure.
A walk one way is into the village, and the other is just a clifftop path. There's a couple of shops in the village, and although main supermarkets are in Holyhead, that's only a couple of miles or so away (it's looks to be much further on the map). The 'Sea Shanty' in the village calls itself a cafe, but it actually does breakfasts, lunches, and dinner. Tables for dinner are set out as a full on restaurant and it has a great dinner menu and atmosphere.
Superb location just north of Treaddur Bay opposite a pebble/sandy cove - views are stunning ! This is a real gem and reasonably priced we were very pleasantly surprised and will definitley return to this beach retreat. On arrival we were instantly pleased with location overlooking Treaddur Bay with uninterrupted views of the bay and beyond. Exterior of the property looked a little shabby but once inside we were more than pleased with our choice of apartment. Situated on the first floor with a large spacious lounge complete with TV & DVD and two sofas and best of all a long window seat to sit and enjoy the stunning views. Decor maritime theme bright and airy with a spacious Double bedroom and a further twin bedroom room , bathroom with shower and a fully equipped kitchen perfect for self catering lots of cupboard and hanging space - only very small criticism was we did find the fridge a bit small but never the less nothing could spoil our stay at this fabulous property. Spotlessly clean very pleased and lots of information before our stay from Tanya meant we had a well needed hassle free weekend. Highly recommend this little gem!
The accommodation is located just north of Trearddur Bay itself - about a minute's drive to the main beach and around 5 minutes by foot.
The accommodation consists of a light and spacious living room comprised of two sofas and a long window seat running the length of the window. The views provided by the long window offer a very nice outlook over the adjacent headland and out to sea while the looking to the left you can see back over to Trearddur Bay. In the corner there is a tv and dvd player and the wifi signal is strong enough to support streaming - we were able to use an amazon fire tv stick (the tv has one HDMI slot) - one happy toddler who could watch cbeebies on demand.
The main bedroom is again well proportioned and shares a similar outlook to the front room. There is a good amount of wardrobe space and large chest of drawers. There is also a sink. The second bedroom has two single beds, a sink and enough space left to place a travel cot.
The kitchen is big enough to include a table and looks out over the rear of the property and incorporates everything needed for self catering. There isn't a washing machine but a sink is big enough to do a handwash if necessary. The bathroom is compact but modern and incorporates a long shower cubicle served by a mixer shower. The flat doesn't provide towels however.
The whole flat is nicely decorated in a maritime/beach theme and all the rooms are off a quirky hallway which includes a number of storage cupboards. At the time of writing the flat had a few minor decorating repairs required but this didn't detract from us enjoying our stay.
Access to the flat is via a common hallway off the side of the property which provides access to the upper flats 3 and 4. At ground level there is some space by the door which includes some patio chairs. Parking for flat 3 is round the back of the property in front of three lock up garages but access is tight between the house and the rock walls. The space can also be shared so you'll have to be conscientious to leave space to let others park as well.
The headland itself drops onto a small beach (mainly pebbles, but some sand) looking out to a largely rocky bay. At low tide you can scramble quite far out to the exposed rocks although the tide can come in surprisingly fast leaving you to paddle back to the beach proper. To the south Trearddur Bay provides a large curve of sand which continues out into the bay - this beach also has the most amenities with a restaurant, ice cream vans, a park, convenience shops (inc a Spar), public toilets all in close vicinity. The bay also includes a RNLI lifeboat station and accompanying shop. To the north there a number of smaller beaches which are only a few minutes drive away (although parking can be limited).
A large Tesco and Morrisons are located around 5 minutes drive from Trearddur Bay, within a retail park, complete with petrol stations, and provided our main source of food shopping. The proximity of Trearddur Bay to the A55 meant that we were able to easily explore the island and jump back to mainland Wales within 20-30 mins - meaning Snowdon was only an hour drive away.
All in all a great little flat situated in location which giving easy access to the local area and a good base to explore from.
