The cottage was warm, clean and plenty of room.. On the down side, the ensuite bathroom and bedroom had a damp smell that was not plesent, this could have been because there was no heating in bathroom. The pictures and description of cottage could do with updating, it had a lovely new cooker and big comfortable sofas.
The property was run down and needed sprucing up.. Many of the facilities were worn out and needed replacing. Sofas were saggy and uncomfortable. kitchen chairs were showing their age. The kitchen doors were blown and needed replacing. A lot of the lighting was not working with 3/4 of bulbs blown in bathroom & main bedroom. Facilities were reasonable but in need of updating although the size of the property was good and agent did leave nice starter pack for us including Welsh cakes, eggs, milk and bread but difficult tight corners in hall were very narrow to get to bedrooms made wheelchair use impractical for anything but 18" wheelchairs or smaller. I would not recommend this property for wheelchair use unless user can walk small distances (which is what my wife had to do as her 20" manual wheelchair would not go through the gap to get to the bathroom & bedrooms) and she had to get out of the chair and walk a few steps down a slope in the hall whilst I folded the chair up to get through gap and then she got back in chair to get to the bathroom and bedrooms every time she needed the bathroom which was not good. Overall it is a lovely area and with updating from the landlord, this property could be very nice but the tired look and narrow hallway did let it down.
We had a lovely holiday whilst staying in the bungalow.. It was spacious, clean, well equipped and situated well to enjoy Anglesey. We also chose the right week as the Anglesey show was on. There was a lovely welcome package left which was not expected and the owner was quick to get back with questions prior to going! We had a fantastic time and this was made easy with staying here!
