Outstanding, it’s a little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing long weekend, the cottage is wonderful and has everything you need. You get a warm hug from the property as soon as you walk through the door. The hospitality is outstanding as is the peace and tranquility of the castaways.

Very difficult to leave.

beautifully located and fitted out property

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. Directions good, greeted with tea and cakes. Accomodation was warm and cosy and everything had been thought off to make our stay enjoyable. Could walk across fields to a beach from the cottage which was nice. Situated in a very pleasant part of Anglesey as well. Got back and immediately booked another break there.

Wonderful cottage in lovely quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous cottage perfect for the two of us and our two dogs. We were greeted with tea and cake waiting which was very welcome! The cottage is very well set out with a very spacious lounge with great views upstairs. It was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Could not fault it in any way - we had a lovely time.

Stunning secret hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect peaceful haven on Anglesey. Really comfortable accommodation with all that one could need and wish for. Beautifully maintained and spotless. Lovely gardens to laze in or ideally situated for trips to Newborough Warren and glorious beaches nearby and Anglesey's treasures. With Menai Bridge a short drive away you can access Snowdonia, Lleyn peninsula and North Wales sights with ease. Thoroughly highly recommend - we always return year after year.

A perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We could not find a better place for our holiday. The Castaways is beautiful - very comfortable and equiped perfectly. Clare and Rai prepared us a warm welcome with tea and cake. They were very helpful during our whole stay. Thank you.

We loved the beautiful garden and our evening walk to the menai strait trough the fields with cows and hares. The weather was wonderful, sunny and warm. The Castaways and it surroundings are like a peaceful Island.

Thank you for the tipp Marran Grass (we had a wonderful meal their) and Hooton's Farm shop.

It's a great place to spend a relaxing holiday. We do hope that we will have the chance to come again.
