Fantastic house for a family gathering
We've recently got back from a fantastic weekend at Cae Glas. The house was warm, inviting and clean. It's much bigger inside than it looks from the outside and all the bedrooms were of a good size. The hot tub was fab, the pool table was a winner with our group and the absolute gem to this place was the BBQ hut, what a fantastic addition to a great holiday house. The only improvements I could identify are more lighting outside, especially around the step of the decking, and maybe putting an additional bathroom in. In summary though, a great find and location for large family gatherings, with plenty to keep all occupied. Well done to the owner for some of the refurbs she's recently done too.
Nice family-friendly holiday let in Anglesey
This holiday home was a pleasant surprise! It has a lovely countryside location, with walking routes from the front door to explore the surroundings. It is right next to the the RAF airfield, which was nice for us to watch the planes. This might not be for everyone as the planes can be extremely loud at times. The planes did not fly during the weekend, bank holiday or at night.
The accommodation itself was plentiful for all of our family. There were plenty of places for everyone to do their own thing. We have stayed at many rental properties over the years, and we thought that the array of facilities/activities provided was excellent.
The hot tub was a delight and the barbecue hut was a fun and comfortable place to spend the evening. The pool table also proved a hit with all ages!
The main downside was that we think the property could do with another bathroom. There was one main bathroom, with shower, bath and toilet, an en-suite bathroom and a extra toilet in the utility room. As the en-suite bathroom was within somebody's room and the utility room was accessed from outside, most of our party tended to take their turn in the one main bathroom. Saying this, it did not cause us too much of a problem.
We would be happy to stay at this property again!
Great place - something for everyone!
Firstly please don't be put off by the negative reviews!
We have just come back from a lovely week spent at Cae Glas as six adults and six children (ranging from 2-6 years old). There really is something for everyone here! The place is huge so we had no problems with space, whether it was just hanging out in the living room(s) or cooking/eating. But for us the best part by far was the garden and everything that came with it. We were blessed with brilliant weather and the children were outside most of the time they were awake at the bungalow! The adults could watch the children sitting in the sun on the decking during the day and we spent evenings in the hot tub stargazing - we saw at least 3 or 4 shooting stars each night which was amazing!
Cae Glas comes highly recommended from all our party, in fact we enjoyed it so much that we have already booked to go back for another week next August!
Don?t believe the bad reviews!
We booked this holiday over 18 months ago and as previous reviewers have also stated, we almost cancelled based on the bad comments below.
After speaking to Sykes Holidays we decided to go ahead and are so grateful that we did.
Our experiences were the absolute opposite of the one star reviews on here and all 12 adults and children had a fabulous holiday.
The owner, Donna, was there on arrival to show us around. She was kind and helpful, lending us equipment and giving us some great recommendations for days out and things to see.
The house was extremely clean and well equipped. I?ve never seen a dvd and computer game collection so large!
Donna came to clean and service the hot tub twice in the week which reassured us that it was safe to use and she was even happy for the younger children to try it out.
Although it's next to the railway line, the noise is barely noticeable from inside the property and the noise from the airport is only during the day. We all enjoyed watching the numerous flybys from the garden and BBQ hut.
There are a few things that are a bit tired, as you would expect from a property that is in use 52 weeks a year, however on the whole, everything is very well maintained.
We certainly saw no rats or any evidence of them around the property.
We would certainly go back again and hope that this review puts people's minds at rest who were as worried as we were!
Amazing family home and location
We booked this holiday over 12 months ago. Around 4 week ago we were in turmoil by seeing some shocking reviews. Even considered cancelling. We met donna the owner and we were open to her about our hesitations. She seemed very upset regarding the bad reviews. She took us around the house and yes there was the odd little thing that had ware and tare but that is what to expect when you rent a house out virtually every week of the year and having up to 14 people staying there. It was clean and we also kept it clean, home from home. I took massive advantage of the washing machine and returned home with virtually no washing which was a bonus. The kids took massive advantage of the hot tub , the first morning we woke up to the kids in there at 6 am . It was our daughters 14th birthday on our first full day there and she had a ball. The bbq area is amazing and so is all of the garden! We used the garden to our advantage and did not see one rat! We saw one vole and the kids loved it. Let's bare in mind this house is in the middle of fields we expected more wild life to be fair. The kitchen probably is a bit small for such a big house but we managed no problem at all. We had some wonderful teas each evening and there is a lovely Chinese that delivers. Raf valley kept the kids and the men entertained too with the fly overs. We have already booked again for next year and can't wait to use this pure little gem again. We left on Friday with a lovely text message saying thank you for leaving the house in good order and so clean off the land lady. And this morning woke up to our deposit back in the bank. We have no fault at all and with our experiences all I can say is I would highly recommend. Also the location of the house is fantastic for getting to every where. We did adventures we have never done before , water sports especially. Can't wait to return !!!! There were 3 families with our party and 13 of us altogether, we never got under each others feet as it is so spacious , two living rooms, massive conservatory and a extra toilet out side in the utility. Thank you to our lovely friends for forever memories and can't wait until next time.
