“Happy days”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My girlfriend and I enjoyed four fabulous days in Woodpecker Cottage in August. Although the cottage is small, it is perfectly formed, secluded and very cosy with an extremely comfortable bed and a lovely shower. For eating we combined the "pop-up" kitchen (with sink and microwave) and the BBQ in the beautiful, private walled garden. Mark and Libby, who own Woodpecker Cottage and the other two properties that make up House in the Yard, could not have been more friendly and helpful. We shall be returning.

“Best Cottage experience ever”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My two sons and I plus my boxer dog Lola stayed in The Owl Barn for 5 nights, and have to say it was the best cottage by far we have ever stayed in, spacious clean airy and luxury you don't get to expect. Libby and Mark made us very welcome and were there on hand if we needed anything at all. The Cottage is based perfectly with lovely views all around in a place that is central for exploring all of Anglesey and North Wales and Snowdonia, without having to travel for hours. I would happily recommend this cottage to anyone and look forward to staying here again in the future.

“This is an exceptionally good property.”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I arrived at Owl Barn with my daughter and small grandson and we had a fabulous welcome from Libby and Mark. They made sure we had everything we needed and we were delighted to see a delicious cake waiting for us in the kitchen as well as their own fresh eggs. If you want luxury then this is for you, from the lovely fluffy towels and quality bedding to the well-stocked kitchen. Great bathrooms and beautifully furnished, too. And when the sun shone we were able to sit and relax on the decking or wander around the wood with its own little house. It was absolutely perfect in every way - even down to the bonus of their two friendly dogs who my grandson loved. It is also well-sited on Anglesey with wonderful beaches just down the road as well as a model village and so many other attractions we didn't have time to visit. For 'foodies', too, you will find excellent bistros/restaurants on the island. It is such a gem and I am so glad that I found it. We can't wait to return!

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

On arrival at The Owl Barn, we were pleasantly surprised.
The accommodation was outstanding and delivered to a high standard. Ample living and lounging space for a family of 4 which includes 2 boys of 11 and 14 yrs. The location is perfect for relaxing in the gardens taking in the views and is also a great base for visiting surrounding areas.
There are some lovely restaurants around to enjoy your evening dinner ,but I would recommend booking prior to avoid disappointment.
Great hospitality from Libby and Mark, welcoming and friendly and very helpful.
Beautiful people and surroundings, I would highly recommend.
