With a stunning location on the banks of the Menai Strait on Anglesey, Felin-Y-Foel Cottage stands with just the coast road and the sea wall separating it from the beach. Felin-Y-Foel recently refurbished holiday cottage on the banks of the Menai Straits offers breathtaking views of Snowdonia mountains. Sea front location provides plenty for children to enjoy!

Wonderful house with views over Snowdonia

We were incredibly lucky to grab this property at short notice for a week in the summer holidays. The location is stunning, right on the Menai Strait with fantastic views over to Snowdonia from the conservatory. This is a peaceful spot, dark and quiet at night, great for bird watching. The house is spacious with plenty of seating areas and a really well equipped kitchen. We found plenty to do on Anglesey and particularly enjoyed visiting nearby Newborough Beach. Coastal Holidays could not have done more to help us so we would highly recommend Coastal Holidays as an agency as well as the property itself. We would not hesitate to book again.



Disappointing and in need of upgrading

We've just returned from Felin-y-Foel and wanted to mention one or two things. As you know the location is stunning and we were very fortunate with the weather. However the cottage itself was very disappointing. It smelt musty and damp and the upholstery in both sitting rooms and conservatory was in great need of a good clean. The carpets were frayed and tatty in several doorways. To describe this cottage as having 3 bathrooms is misleading as the downstairs shower room was more of a store for high chair, brooms and ladder.

What surprised us was that there were no reviews online nor a visitors book. Because the information for recycling and bin collection days was 2 years out of date, we could only assume no visitors had been since 2018.

For the above reasons we feel the cottage was extremely overpriced. We as a family have rented cottages on Anglesey for many years - we normally use Menai Holiday Cottages but there was no availability for our week. We've never had these sorts of issues before and for the benefit of other holidaymakers and your business, we would respectfully suggest you carry out an inspection.

Having said all this we had a lovely holiday.

Overall this was a fantastic house, in a great location, loads of space inside and out and really well provided for in terms of furnishing, kitchen etc. Given that, the following are only a couple of small issues that might be looked at:
- though generally it was well cleaned, this was a bit uneven - some areas needed a bit more going over;
- the kitchen is really well kitted out but some areas could do with a bit of maintenance (e.g. things like kitchen draw coming loose/not closing properly);
- we were aware that though we had good wifi, the adjacent houses had much poorer coverage and this service could perhaps be boosted.
But communication etc with Coastal Holidays was fast, efficient and friendly and we really enjoyed the week and being so close to the sea.

Main road access was not good. Several near misses with fast on coming traffic
Disappointed by the large quantity of rubbish in the bins on the day of arrival ( flies etc ) so we couldn't put rubbish out .Rubbish finally collected on Day6 of our holiday
Unusual these days not to have a tumble drier and very few pegs there for the washing line. Could do with more!
Few saucepans there , would be hard to cater for 10 with what was available. We were only 7.
Hot water tap in kitchen needs attention-- either off or dangerous surge then went off again
Dining room carpet at the kitchen/dining threshold was frayed and covered with a mat which was dangerous




Wonderful view

Foel ferry is a large property, ideal for an extended family to share.
The position of the property right on the Menai Strait is ideal,and the views are superb.

Lovely peaceful cottage, very spacious for a large or extended family. Very well equipped kitchen. Beautiful views across the Menai straits and safe enclosed garden. Would definitely stay here again.
