Really enjoyed our short break in this lovely part of north Wales. Cottage was immaculate with plenty of space to relax. Would recommend a visit to Newborough beach and forest - lots of space to explore. The Beacon Climbing Centre is also well worth a visit.
We loved it!!!

What great memories with have of our trip to Wales and Penrallt Cottage made it even better. It has such character and charm. The cottage is very clean with modern furnishings making it a perfect place to stay. Would highly recommend it to anyone.
A nice week in North Wales with a very comfortable Cottage

A perfect place to stay:
- the cottage is very good and high-class equipped
- it is very comfortable for 6 persons
- the people who let the house are living beside. They are very friendly and cooperative if there is a question
- the area around the cottage and the views are very lovely (the sunsets are sensational)
- it is a good place to start activities as e.g. to Snowdon, Canaerfon, Bangor, Anglesey, Conwy, the Ffestiniog Railway
- also the weather was ok - most of the time dry and sometimes a bit of sunshine. We had a nice week.

The cottage was well-equipped, nicely-furnished and very comfortable. The lovely views over the Menai Straits were gorgeous and we had excellent weather to appreciate them fully. We enjoyed our holiday very much.
Only 3 less-positive comments:
The '5 mins downhill walk' was over-optimistic re. timing and it is pretty steep. (We are fit and regularly walk in the countryside but after doing the walk on the first evening we didn't repeat it.)
Access by car involves negotiating a very sharp left turn. We coped but wouldn't recommend it for a nervous driver. The 'written directions' mention a 'sharp left turn' but I would add the word 'very' to emphasise that.
We were disappointed at the 'selection of pubs,restaurants...' as there was only one pub within a short walking distance of the cottage and the meal we had there was very poor. Your description of Y Felinheli suggested a more thriving community with a good selection of eating places. We would have liked to have eaten out in the village more often.

High quality, modern decor,very warm accommodation. Great views, very peaceful.
Good location for visiting Angelsey and North Wales.
Sharp narrow turning with bend, but not a problem.
Owners next door and very helpful.
Short circular walk can be done fron house.
