The North Wales region
Anglesey is a place where you can get away from it all and leave the stress of modern day life behind you, with over 125 miles of spectacular coastline and many award winning beaches for you to explore.
The island boasts many historical towns such as Beaumaris with its moated castle, gaol and courthouse.There are also a variety of heritage sites, Museums and galleries where you can learn more about the history of the Island .
For those of you who may want to travel a little further afield you could cross over the Menai Straits into the Snowdonia National Park which boasts breathtaking mountain scenery along with the famous Snowdon mountain railway which takes you to the summit of Mount Snowdon being the highest mountain in England and Wales. The Royal town of Caernarfon and the picturesque harbour town of Conwy, both with their famous castles are also but a short drive off the Island.
There is plenty to keep the family entertained on the Island with The Angelesey Sea Zoo, Pili Palas (butterfly,bird & reptile palace) and Foel Farm to name but a few. There are also 5 golf courses on the Island, the nearest being a 5 minute drive away at Bull Bay.
For nature lovers try taking a cruise round Puffin Island from Beaumaris, see the Red Squirrels and Ravens roost at Newborough forest, visit Cemlyn to see the Seals and the largest breeding coloney of Sandwich Terns. Or perhaps make a visit to the RSPB nature reserve at South Stack, Holyhead.
There are also some highly recommended pubs and restaurants on the island such as The Ship Inn, The White Eagle and The Lobster Pot.
The historic Port of Amlwch being situated on the renowned Anglesey coastal path makes it an ideal place for walkers as does the nearby copper mines of Parys Mountain with its fiery red, orange and purple lunar like landscape.
The port which is a great tourist attraction and home to the Sail Loft visitors centre/cafe, offers great fishing from the harbour where boats can be chartered for fishing, pleasure or diving.
At the head of the Port, a few minutes walk away there are two Pubs, a fish & chip shop and a local mini market, while at the mouth of the port lies the cottage and the Sail Loft Visitors Centre. In the nearby town of Amlwch you will find 3 banks, various restaurants, supermarkets, leisure centre and weekly market.
The nearby beaches of Bull Bay, Lligwy, Porth Eilian & Caemes Bay are a must to visit during your stay, and if you are lucky you may even spot the Dolphins on their regular swim by!

"Cracking Christmas Cottage 2012"
Stayed at Pilot's cottage with wife, teenage daughter, and two freinds of the family and their two dogs and had a wonderful time in this quaint, inviting and well stocked home from home. All the comforts of home were provided and the Christmas decorations and muled wine and mince pies on arrival were a lovely and much appreciated touch.
Lovely setting for nights in by the fire playing games and relaxing and a well appointed kitchen with a view over the harbour that made washing up a pleasure meant when the weather was bad you did not feel "stuck indoors" and the location a few miles from Buls Bay and surrounding area meant you were only 10 minutes away from bracing beach and cliff top walks with stunning scenery.

"very good cottage"
very good cottage,brilliant views from the window.
very clean, everything you could need for your holiday,
only negatives were very limited use of internet.restricted usage only.
also, when we stayed,the weather was a bit hit and miss.
the television reception matched the weather,
when raining or overcast, the reception was intermittent or non existent.
overall very good cottage as long as you get decent weather
Thanks for your comments glad you enjoyed your stay, sorry that the weather wasn't great. Pilots Cottage now has Sky Freeview (installed September 2012) to combat the issues with TV reception during poor weather conditions as the sky dish gets a better reception than an aerial. We also don't advertise the cottage as having internet connection but have left a 3G dongle for customers to use during their stay.

Came with five friends and had a wonderful time. Warm,cozy cottage with everything we needed. Fantastic views from inside and out. Would love to go back for longer stay

We stayed at Pilots Cottage with 4 adults and 2 children. All of the group thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The cottage is lovely, very spacious and clean with beautiful views out across the harbour from the kitchen and the outside decking area. The location is good, there are 2 pubs and a fish and chip shop very close to the house and the local village centre, which has several shops, takeaways and pubs is a 2 min drive or a less than 10 min walk. The highlight for me was the views from the house!
