  • “Garden: needed a good prune and tidy of brushes and shrubs.”

    Furniture was moldy and dirty not fit to sit on. Some of the chairs were worn enough so the ratting had started to break up. Was not pleasant to sit out which was a shame as we had glorious weather the week we were there. ...

    Furniture was moldy and dirty not fit to sit on. Some of the chairs were worn enough so the ratting had started to break up. Was not pleasant to sit out which was a shame as we had glorious weather the week we were there. House: Considering it was a 16th century cottage its character and quirks are wonderful but that is where it ends. To advertise as a six person cottage is not accurate. It has a damp, musty aura that didn't help my Mother who suffers with a lung condition. She found a wood lice in her shoe one morning and Ivy growing through the door in her bedroom. The third bedroom was tiny and definitely would not sleep 2 adults comfortably. To call it a double bedroom is a play on words. I have no idea how they would be able to dress or undress as there is absolutely no room to turn or move around. Would be better used to turn it into a shower room with toilet for the other double bedroom upstairs. Shower room: was more of a cubicle and my Father who is only 5' 7" struggled to shower in the tiny space. Every time he turned he knocked the tap which either sent water scalding or turned it off. Far better to knock through into the bathroom and make a large bathroom with walk in shower. The furniture whilst a wonderful museum of 16th century households was uncomfortable to sit on at length around the dining table. Maybe too much furniture packed into the cottage. The sofas are so old and misshapen that again they were very uncomfortable. A six berth cottage should surely have a four slice toaster. It makes one think the owner advertises as a six berth to merely gain financial satisfaction. We would not rent this cottage again unless major improvements are made as it certainly wasn't worth the money we paid to stay there. Its disappointing and makes us wonder do Menai Holidays check the properties you have on your books because if you rely on owner pictures then you are failing in you duty to ensure paying customers enjoy their stay in one of your properties. I doubt you would want to publish my remarks and maybe rather have a conversation and inspection of Oyster Cottage with the owner. I ask you would you happily sleep in the third bedroom yourself? I also wonder if you will contact me considering the feedback I have given. I don't write these comments just for the sake of complaining but in the hope you will undertake to ensure your properties are the best they can be for the holiday maker. I want to continue using your company as we have in the past.

The property

Oyster Cottage is a listed period cottage with great character and beautiful features furnished with some original period furniture from the 17th Century.

This gives the feeling of stepping back in time with the added value of modern facilities.

The owner has designed the furnishing of this house so thoughtfully and it has so many unique features. "A pearl of a cottage - a listed building where the owners have carefully combined the 17th and 21st Centuries to make a fabulous holiday cottage." The space within the cottage is deceptive and spacious and so, so cosy with central heating, clever lighting and fireside seating.

It is within easy walking distance of pubs, restaurants and interesting, individual shops in Beaumaris, as well as the famous moated castle, the Gaol and, of course, the lovely Green on the banks of the Menai Strait.

The cottage has a private enclosed terraced garden, complete with hot tub, beautifully laid out with lighting features and seating areas.

About the location


Menai Bridge 4 miles.

Beaumaris is a well known historic town on the Isle of Anglesey situated on the Menai Strait and overlooking the Snowdonia mountain range, making for the most stunning of sunrises. With its medieval castle (now a World Heritage site) dating back to the reign of Edward I and its Victorian pier, gaol and courthouse, it is also known as a major centre for yachting. Beaumaris is rich in history and retains much of its medieval street pattern. It’s setting, diversity of architectural styles and periods, differing scale, open spaces, varying roofs and overall quality contribute greatly to the town’s character. There is a good selection of shops, restaurants and public houses, as well as fishing opportunities and boat trips in the town, plus a golf course nearby. Along the coast is a large bay called Red Wharf Bay; its Welsh name is Traeth Coch (Red Beach) and the area is renowned for its glorious sunsets. The bay is very shallow and at low tide, almost 25 square kilometres (10 sq. mi.) of sand is uncovered providing safe bathing, perfect for wonderful family fun, fishing and miles of stunning scenic walks. Further afield is the port of Holyhead, which has regular ferry links to Dublin. Beaumaris is a good central base for touring Wales, in a beautiful location on the south coast of the picturesque Isle of Anglesey, within easy reach of the spectacular mountains of Snowdonia.
