We stayed at Water's Edge last week and I just can't put into words was a fabulous holiday home this is. I will try my best to do it justice. In a nutshell, though, if you are looking for a spacious, clean, comfortable holiday home with absolutely stunning water views in a perfect location for great days out and within walking distance of a couple of restaurants / pubs then this is the place for you!
We arrived at Water's Edge as as soon as we opened the door we could see through to the sea, simply stunning. We quickly explored the cottage to find it clean, light and airy with generous sized bedrooms, three toilets (very handy!), two showers (handy for after a day on the beach) and a comfortable living room opening out onto the balcony. A bottle of wine, packet of biscuits, some milk and a note from Carol awaited us. I could go on and on about how wonderful this holiday home is, it's just perfect.
We spent a couple of evenings (when it was warm enough!) sitting on the balcony watching the boats, the wildlife, the stars and planets appearing and listening to the birds tweeting. I even saw a shooting star!
The location is great, we walked to La Marina twice for dinner (booking advised) and to The Gardffon Inn. We dove over to Dylan's Restaurant on the Island of Anglesey one evening and had a fantastic meal overlooking the Menai Straight, it was well worth the drive (I booked online).
We visited the following places from Water's Edge:
- Portmeirion Village
- Aber Falls
- Newborough Forest, beach and Llanddwen Island
- Snowdon Mountain Railway (book in advance!)
- Rib Ride
- Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens
- Colwyn Bay beach and Rhos on Sea beach
- Llanfair - PG Station
- Menai Suspension Bridge
There's so much more we could have done but we ran out of time!
Carol was helpful whenever we contacted her and we would like to say thank you so much for such an enjoyable and comfortable stay. I only wish we could have brought the view home with us!
This is a lovely well equipped house over looking the water. Everything you need for a relaxing break. The balcony is great for a drink on a lovely evening.
Central for all your needs.
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful house.
We arrived in a Blizzard and the house was already pre-warmed in anticipation of our arrival! There was a red cross parcel in case we had not brought provisions and the shops were closed. You don't need towels, toilet rolls, washing up liquid etc.. it is truly home from home!
The house is well furnished with large bedrooms, bathrooms, reception rooms and kitchen / diner. It is right on the sea front and the lounge on the top 3rd floor has a balcony and a spectacular view over the bay and also has a BBQ area.
you are literally 5 minutes walk to the Marina where there is a great café 'Swellies' and La Marina which is a Tapas style restaurant. The nearest general store is a further 5 minutes walk. There is so much to see and do in the area and it is 5 miles to Bangor to the north and the same to Caernarfon to the south and 7 miles to Llanberis and Snowdon.
The property was much more than we imagined and we will be back at the first opportunity and cannot recommend it more highly!
We stayed for a few nights had an amazing time and awesome sea views.
Great location to get to Anglesey and Caernarfon we will defiantly be coming back!!! The house has everything you need and more absolutely loved the area and the Marina. Carol was there for anything you needed fantastic host. Couldn't ask for better communication. Perfect retreat to wind down and relax.
Our third stay since we found it and the magic continues. The house has everything you could need and is so comfortable to stay in. We love the wonderful view over the straits, which changes constantly with the light and weather.
Carol, the owner, puts a lot of time and effort into making your stay as comfortable as possible and it's reassuring to have someone care that much.
Really good local pub/restaurant in walking distance and easy road access to so many other great places to go. Sharing it because we love it but kind of want to keep it to ourselves!
