There is a short scenic walk to South Stack and for the energetic down the steps to the light house.

A short drive away are the historic castles of Beaumaris, Caernarfon,Conway and Harlech. Snowdonia, which can be seen clearly from the lodge is a must for the visitor with a ride up to the summit on the mountain railway.The slate museum and the electric mountain are also in this area. A day out to the lovely town of Beaumaris is a must with good shops and restaurants. In the centre of the island is Tre-Ysgawen Hotel which has a luxury health spa for those wishing a pamper day.

"Property in unique location with lovely views"
Our family of five stayed in this property for 3 nights. The views from the property are stunning. The lounge is spacious and the bedrooms are a good size. The conservatory gives the best views from the house and we were able to have breakfast with views of Snowdonia in the distance. There are some good walks from the cottage. Holyhead is a short drive away and has a range of supermarkets. The kitchen is quite small considering the size of the property, however it is generally well equipped. The lack of a dishwasher was disappointing and may be an issue for larger parties or those who do not wish to eat out. Unfortunately we were disappointed by the cleanliness on arrival. The downstairs shower room was not fully clean and there were dog hairs in the kitchen and conservatory. On a positive note, after contacting the owners about this they arranged for a cleaner to visit the property within a few hours and this fully rectified the issue. We always select properties which do not accept smokers or pets, so it was a shame that there was strong evidence of a dog having recently resided in the property (dog hairs, faint doggy smell in some rooms downstairs and a dog bowl half full with water in the porch).
Fair revue although a little harsh in the "starring". We had problems with our usual cleaner who was unfortunately unable to provide her usually excellent service due to unforeseen circumstances which required her to draft in additional staff who frankly were not of the same quality - we are greatly relieved to report that she is now back, and we are able to provide the normal high standards of cleanliness which we, as owners and frequent users of the property, expect.

We had a wonderful time The lodge is beautiful. The property was clean and spacious and we never tired of the views. There is lots to do on your doorstep and an excellent base for touring the island. The welcome basket was the most generous we have experienced.

"Beautiful house in a stunning location with fantastic views!!"
My husband and I stayed at the Lodge for 1 week, with our two children aged 5 and 10 and my parents. After a bad journey along the A55 through North Wales in torrential rain and thunderstorms, we drove over the Menai Bridge onto Anglesey, to be met with beautiful blue skies and sunshine - luckily this weather lasted for the full week! The cottage is in a stunning location and the views are breathtaking. We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years, but this is by far the most well equipped and comfortable - it is really well furnished and cosy with lots of extras like books and board games that you dont often get in other holiday rentals - the kitchen is very well equipped and has all the plates, cutlery and utensils you could ever need, and the utility room with an extra fridge/freezer and washing machine is great for a family. It is a real home from home and the layout is perfect with wonderful views from most of the rooms - my parents particularly enjoyed sitting in the conservatory watching the boats out at sea and the regular flyovers from the jets and helicopters from nearby RAF Valley. The decked area that runs along one full side of the house is the perfect place for sitting having your morning coffee and to take in the stunning views and the garden was great for the children and their games of hide and seek. From the cottage there are many walks - South Stack Lighthouse is a must and a walk up to the top of Holyhead Mountain is well worth the effort as the views from there are amazing. There are also some stone hut circles just above the cottage and the children loved playing around them. There are lovely beaches just a short drive away - we were frequent visitors to Porth Dafarch, Trearrdur Bay and Rhosneigr, the latter being a particular favourite with the children with their bodyboards as the waves are bigger there. A visit to Beaumaris and the castle is also very worthwhile. There is a real feeling of being very remote and away from it all at the cottage, but it is located just a short drive from Holyhead that has a number of shops and supermarkets for all your supplies. If eating out we would recommend the White Eagle at Rhoscolyn, but be prepared to wait during busy times - we waited for an hour for food, but it was worth it and the food was delicious. We had a fabulous holiday at the Lodge - its in a great location and we would highly recommend it!

Just one of many words to describe this beautiful lodge. From the moment we all walked through the front door, we all knew we would be in for a relaxing holiday. The views were beautiful, and instantly made you feel relaxed. The brief walk to the RSPB centre offered further spactacular views. Beaches near by offered up some beautiful walks at night, especially Trearddur Bay. The kids especially enjoyed Rhoscolyn Borth Wen. I would definately stay here again, and the lodge will be highly recommended to friends and other family.

"A really special place"
The Lodge had everything we needed, well equipped, lots of room. We particularly liked the lounge which has a great cosy feel to it, but also has large patio doors which open to a fabulous view. Our boys loved the large garden and there is a decked area which gets the sun until late evening. We weren't very lucky with the weather, but it's the sort of house you don't mind spending time in because of the views, and because you can just nip out between showers. The situation feels very rural but there are 3 major supermarkets in Holyhead and once you're on the dual carriageway it doesn't seem to take too long to get anywhere. We did lots of walking from the house. Amazing cliff scenery, lighthouse, hundreds of birds literally at bottom of the drive. Binoculars a must. You can go in the lighthouse. There is a 'mountain' behind the house with stunning views from the top. Also recommend rhoscolyn, a short drive away. A walk along the coastal path brings you to a large rock arch which you can stand on top of. Great pub too, The White Eagle. The Anglesey coastline is stunning and it doesn't take great big long hikes to see the best of it. We used Carl Rogers book-Coastal Walks around Anglesey to plan our time.

"Excellent property and location - highly recommended"
We stayed at Tan-y-Cytiau Lodge this weekend and it greatly exceeded our expectations. It has a lovely homely feel and is spacious and well equipped. The views are spectacular from most of the rooms and there's plenty of space around the property to sit out or play games, including a deck overlooking the sea. Inside the sitting room is particularly comfortable and airy, as is the conservatory, and the kitchen and utility rooms are very well equipped - all these overlook the sea. The dining room has a good large table and more cozy feel. Upstairs there are two large bedrooms with sea views - one with a kingsize bed and the other with three singles, and a smaller double room at the back. The upstairs bathroom and downstairs shower room are modern and clean (but note that the bathroom doesn't have a shower or a shower tap on the bath). The location is within easy walking distance of the RSPB centre and South Stack lighthouse - the latter is well worth a visit but there are a LOT of steps (more than 1500 there and back according to the guide). Lots of other walks and serious climbing opportunities too it seems. There are several good beaches a short drive away and then of course the wider range of beaches and other attractions on Anglesey and over to Snowdonia. Finally a mention for Mojo's - an excellent small creperie in Rhosneigr. Well worth a visit - open at lunchtime or, for bookings only, in the evenings. All in all, Tan-y-Cytiau Lodge is an excellent property in an excellent location - highly recommended.

"Excellent property, Superb location & Views, everything we hoped for."
The property is in a excellent location, quiet with far reaching views over the sea and the island with large private gardens. Directions and communications with the owners were friendly and accurate. On arrival everything was clean and well presented, everything you needed was provided with sufficient for the stay meaning you don't have to go out and buy essentials such as toilet rolls and washing up liquid on arrival as you so often have too in many properties. The furniture is comfortable and the main living rooms spacious, nicely decorated and cosy. The conservatory was a great extra room, again with excellent views and access into the gardens. With pleanty of linen/towels etc provided and everything you needed in the kitchen with no additional or hidden charges and no list of restrictions or rules it makes for a relaxing hastle free break. While to property is in a quiet scenic location it is only 5 minutes walk from South Stack, 5 minutes drive to Treadur Bay and 5-10 min from the supermarkets, shops etc in Holyhead. We stay in several properties every year both in the UK and abroad and found this to be one of the best ones we have stayed in within the UK. If anything the interior photos of the property used on the web site do not do it full justice, it was far nicer than we had expected. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable relaxing break, it is certainly one we would consider staying in again in the not too distant future.

"We loved this lodge and Anglesey."
We loved our stay at the lodge. The living room was large and luxurious (the internet picture does not do it justice) . We loved the sunroom with its views of the coast and occasional RAF activity. There were sea views from all rooms except bathrooms and hall. There was one house nearby but the lodge felt alone because it was not overlooked, the garden is large and private and there was also a field for our use. We chose the lodge for the coastal views, the solitude and the field for my boys to play football in and we were very happy with our choice. We felt that it is a well loved home, not just a holiday let. The owners responded quickly to my enquiry, even though they were on holiday themselves. There was a welcome basket and a welcome message on a chalkboard for us on arrival. I was very happy with their attitude throughout the holiday process and we have booked to stay for a weekend in the Autumn. The property was surrounded by fields, and there were horses in two of them, which my young daughter loved to stroke and chatter to. Next door is an RSPB reserve and Holyhead Mountain with fantastic walks. Our favourite was the walk down the cliffside steps to the lighthouse bridge - scary at first but the kids loved it and we did it on several evenings. (It is safe but could easily be dangerous so children need to be supervised well). We visited the lighthouse (beware flying seagull poop!) and the RSPB reserve hide (Elin's Tower) which is staffed during the day and has telescopes. We managed to see 2 puffins even though they were nearly gone for the season, and a couple of other species. One of my children now loves birdwatching. The walk to the nearby ancient hut circles and also the Mountain were excellent too (one of these is a good concrete track suitable for wheelchair users) and as a bonus we could see Ireland on the horizon on clear days.(from the mountain track). The Irish network took over our mobile phone signal at certain points on our walks, so beware extra costs. Anglesey has numerous good beaches, and a 125 mile coastal path with stunning scenery. The island also has geological interest, so pebble collecting was fun. Getting to the lodge and exploring Anglesey does involve travelling on narrow but good roads. We used the retail park at Holyhead for our shopping, because it was convenient. There was Tesco, Morrisons, Poundland, Argos and a few others. (Cheap ice creams at Poundland). The nearest multiplex cinema was at Llandudno Junction approx 1 hour away on the mainland - Harry Potter was just out and it was raining - we had to see it! On Anglesey there was an outdoor activity centre, pony treking and circuit racing. We did not find many other activities for teenagers without going to the mainland. The dual carriageway across Anglesey to North Wales was fast and not busy so activities on the mainland were easily possible. (Approx three quarters of an hour away). There were plenty of activites for younger children on Anglesey itself - farm park, sea zoo, Beaumaris castle, playpark at Holyhead, beaches. We had a great holiday exploring Anglesey. Make sure you find Broadwater Country Park (an old industrial site converted to a park for walks) near Holyhead, Holyhead marina/promenade, RAF Valley, South Stack lighthouse. Wylfa nuclear power station, Amlwch geological park, Beaumaris castle and Penmon Point. We had some rain but the lodge was so nice that we were happy to just enjoy it and let the rain pass while the boys played on their games console.
