Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The gatehouse is in a beautiful scenic location. It is very well equipped, very cosy with friendly owners. I would certainly recommend this holiday home. Oct 2012.
  2. This was our secong holiday at the Gatehouse and it really felt like going home. The cottage and location are superb, the views are also breathtaking. Once again we have booked to go back next year and can’t wait to return! July 2012.
  3. This property is among the best for location, views and comfort and remember that one of the neighbours (you can nearly see the house out of the window but some trees are in the way) is Wills & Kate. Also within half a mile is a motor racing circuit and if you walk along the beach there is a spot to stand and watch. Wonderfull bird life and fauna, lots of orchids and seals just round the headland. Brilliant. April 2012.
  4. If you want and peace quiet for your break and wonderful veiws sheep for neighbours then this is the place for you. Feb 2012.
  5. Cottage very well sited just outside village. Excellant walking area. Easy access by car to all parts of Anglesey and towns along the Menai Strait. Coal fire made it very cosy. Owners very helpful. Dec 2011.
  6. This is a simple but cosy cottage in a fantastic location. There is everything you need here and it’s great to be so close to the sea - in fact you can even hear it from the upstairs bedroom. Nov 2011.
  7. The cottage was a delight, the views breathtaking and the weather perfect! We felt as though we had been abroad not just hours drive away. The owners were very pleasant. The whole village was untouched by tourism and it felt as though we had travelled back in time, we enjoyed our holiday so much that we booked to go again the same time next year. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Owens and Mrs. Williams! P.S. It was important to us that we were able to take our dog who, like us, enjoyed his holiday very much. July 2011.
  8. Excellent cottages, locals and owners made us feel welcome from the very minute we got there. Location is excellent for peace and queit plus ideal spot if you have dogs...June 2011.
  9. Cottage was lovely and cosy. A lovely walk down the lane and around the coastline. The owner Mr Owens was very helpful and courteous. Would definitely consider visiting again in the future. June 2011.
  10. The cottage was lovely, when we arrived a fire was already lit for us. The views are beautiful and it was very quiet. Feb 2011.
  11. The location was very remote, peaceful and accurate. Also loved the open fire. Jan 2011.
  12. Very cosy with the coal fire in winter. Jan 2011.
  13. The property was small and cosy - just what we wanted. Good location to be able to visit the rest of Anglesey. Oct 2010.
  14. Very clean, fantastic views. July 2010.
  15. Lovely location, secluded and private. Views from the cottage across fields to sea and mountains breath-taking. May 2010.
  16. Position - so close to the coast for walks and the village for daily necessities. Very well equipped. A cosy place to stay. Feb 2010.
  17. The cottage was very welcoming and warm as the owner had very kindly lit a coal fire just before we arrived. We love the seclusion, view and walks from the cottage. The owners and other villagers are friendly and helpful. Having stayed in all seasons there is much to make us return. Dec 2009.
  18. A very comfortable cottage in a lovely location. Nov 2009.
  19. Excellent quiet location. Beach a few minutes walk away. Aug 2009.
  20. If you like peace, quiet, farm animals and walks with a view from the front door you’ll love The Gatehouse. The Gatehouse is a situated in a beautiful, quiet part of the island with sheep and cattle for company. The locals are really friendly and regularly tend the animals in the neighbouring fields. The walk down to Church Bay takes about 20 minutes and is very scenic. The beach has a beauty whether the tide is in or not and you often have it all to yourself. Aug 2009.
