Another lovely stay at Cerrig y Barcud in such a peaceful and relaxing environment . Enjoyed seeing the animals and listening to the birds ,we’ve fully recharged our batteries . Already booked a return visit, it’s like home from home. Thank you Annmarie and Matthew.
Gill and Doug (Carnedd Cottage) 27/04/2024
Another stay in Brysiencien. Cottage excellent
usual. Lots to do around the area near the beach and amazing choclatier at Foel Farm. Lovely to sit on patio with a vino and watch the sun go down.
Large games room play area outside for children. Couldn't ask for more. We'll be back.
Margaret & Mark Porter (Yr Eifl Cottage) 27/04/2024
Many thanks for yet another wonderful week at CYB. It's easy to forget how many times we've been but it must be at least twenty since you took over and expanded the cottages. We have stayed in every one and enjoyed them all. What is so impressive (and not common with holiday cottages) is the consistently high level of cleanliness, warmth and friendliness. The holidays always recharge our batteries (sometimes by solar power, sometimes by wind power) but we always return feeling happy and healthy.

The location is superb - a five minute walk down the lane and you are on the edge of the Menai Strait (or in it at very high tides) with a view across to the mainland that ranges from the Great Orme in the east to the tip of the Lleyn Peninsula in the west - the whole of Snowdonia. On our last visit snow fell overnight on the mountains and down to a low level and the sun shone the next morning. A fantastic vista but impossible to convey in a photograph.

It is worth mentioning how great winter breaks are - the weather tends to skim over the island as it is so low and then breaks on the mainland mountains, often leaving Anglesey in sunshine with views of impressive cloudscapes over Snowdonia. Walking on Newborough Beach / Llanddwyn Island / Malltraeth Bay or Rhosneigr Beach on a winter's day (in warm clothing) can be magical and you certainly won't have any cobwebs left when you return to your cottage.

So many thanks for so many superb, quality holidays and, needless to say, we shall return.

This year we returned to Cerrig y Barcud for third year in a row and as ever, it was an amazing week! On arrival, as always we were greeted with a very warm welcome by Annmarie and Matthew, cottage was extremely clean throughout and we felt right at home as we always do. Our daughter had so much fun feeding the animals and utilising the games room with other children as well as the playground. Great surroundings and beautiful views. Have re-booked for 2025 and very much looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommend Cerrig y Barcud.
David Edmunds (Mynydd Cottage) 15/04/2024
We recently returned from our 4th stay at Cerrig y Barcud. A lovely holiday again in their wonderful cottages. Such a beautiful location with so much for our young ones to do. Always feel so welcome. We'll definitely be returning again.
James Challoner. (Elidir Cottage) 15/04/2024
We have thoroughly enjoyed many holidays here and for very good, legitimate reasons:
The properties are kept meticulously clean and very well kempt.
The hosts, Annmarie and Matthew are excellent; always there to assist if necessary, or ensure someone is if they are out. They provide a wonderful welcome - and farewell when the time comes.
The facilities provided for all guests, like the small play area, football green, the animals and the games room are great, especially the games room if the weather is not so good. you can even get a DVD or two from there to watch back at the ranch!
For us, this is the best location in Anglesey, as you are a few minutes saunter away from the Menai, (great to see in it's ever-changing state); 10 to 15 minute drive from Newborough Forest and The Warren, a stone's throw form the Sea Zoo, Foel Farm and Anglesey Sea Salt venue, and fantastic views over to Snowdon and it's mountain range. And, this is especially so from the little balcony on the outside of the bedroom in Yr Eifl Cottage.
To summarise, it is just so nice, the place, the people and the opportunities it provides.
And, this is why we are long-serving guests, as it is home from home. You must try it!!!
Amanda & Barry (Yr Eifl Cottage) 15/04/2024
My family and I had a great time. The cottage was very clean and the welcome was lovely. The kids absolutely loved the games room and the animals to feed. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Laura (Crib Goch Cottage) 14/04/2024
There aren’t enough words to describe how special Cerrig y Barcud is to us. We have holidayed here for many years now and never tire of any part of it, whether that be the location, the things to see and do nearby or the cottages themselves. They are all truly fantastic!

From the coziness, to the cleanliness, to the warmth from Matt and Annmarie on arrival, there is everything and more you could possibly wish for here. Nothing is ever too much for Matt and Annmarie, they are the most wonderful hosts and are truly special people.

The cottages have everything you need, the games room and lawn at the front aka in my sons word - the football pitch, is brilliant for the children, as is the play area and space to feed the ponies and goats. At the end of a day of adventure they always look forward to coming back to the cottages to see the friends they’ve made and play outside. Which to us says it all. There is also an electric car charging point which is so convenient and a laundry room should you wish to use it during your stay. DVDs and books can be borrowed from the games room too. There is so much to do nearby without even needing to use a car - the sea zoo and farm are both just down the road as is the Halon Man salt factory, or simply just a walk down to the Menai Straits is stunning. There is plenty to see elsewhere too, we have barely
scratched the surface

We always have the best time when we come, we never actually want to leave and always always look forward to coming back. There is nothing like stepping through the front door of the cottage and feeling instantly relaxed and at ease.

I would recommend cerrig y barcud to everyone, whether you have children or are a couple coming to explore or for some r&r. Everyone is very respectful of each other and very friendly.
Me and my husband began coming here before we had children and knew this is where we would holiday as a family in the future. There is a cottage sized for everyone here which is brilliant.

Also got to mention the views and sunset too, breathtaking. We love coming to our ‘home away from home’ and are already looking forward to being back - we have such fond memories and look forward to making so many more. Thank you for everything!
Simon, Becky, Jacob and Erin Hammond (Carnedd Cottage) 13/04/2024
We always love seeing you and can’t thank you enough for this amazing review. Its truly touched our hearts 🥰 thank you xxx
Well what can we say about this beautiful place ?
We have been coming every Easter for 13 years - so that says it all.
Spotless, idylic, stunning views and the warmest welcome anyone could ask for.
Ann-Marie and Mat are the hosts with the most.
We have already booked for next Easter and are counting down the days.
Janis Newell (Glyder Cottage) 08/04/2024
Just back from a lovely break. Everything was just perfect. Cottage was lovely and was spotless. Setting is ideal and the goats and ponies add to the setting. My 12 year old daughter loved the games room. Our hosts Annmarie and Matthew were lovely people and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be back
Lisa & Andy Tomlinson (Mynydd Cottage) 27/10/2023

It was truly lovely meeting you all. Thank you for your lovely review. We hope to see you again soon 😊
We are staying in Y wyddfa cottage (a lovely 3 bed 2 bathroom cottage) with our two grandsons 5 and 7 at Cerrig y Barcud holiday cottages during October half term. After a 300 mile journey we were greeted by the very lovely Anne Marie who was not phased by the boys emerging the car like two little banshees..😬 The cottage is beautifully maintained and has everything we need.We have stunning views and the boys love being next to the games room and being able to feed the goats.. There is so much to do and see in the vicinity that there hasn’t been a dull moment. Having a food delivery to the cottage on the Saturday night was so useful, but there are supermarkets a few miles away in Bangor. The boys love it so much that they asked if they could come here again and so it looks like we will be coming back July 2024 as well. This is not just a beautiful place for children though… We as a couple would definitely come back as I had forgotten how absolutely beautiful Anglesey is and without the boys, it would be a fantastically relaxing break.😬 .. but without doubt it is the genuine warmth that Anne Marie and Matthew exude that make these holiday cottages a very special place to stay…
Cathy Melchionno (Yr Wyddfa Cottage) 27/10/2023
Thank you for your lovely review. It was so lovely meeting you and the boys.
We are thrilled you are hoping to all come again 🥰
This is the best holiday cottage ever! The goats and games rooms are amazing. Anglesey Sea Zoo and an amazing view of the Menai Strait are just around the corner.
Please come here people. It's simply the best holiday cottage available!
Seb 26/11/2022

We had a lovely week at Tryfan, blessed with good weather, we loved this little cottage so much we want to return next year.

Thank you for your lovely review. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you 😊
"We’ve been staying at Cerrig y Barcud for many years and we intend to continue for many more. My parents took me and now I take my own family. It’s no surprise many guests choose to return again and again. Annmarie and Matthew are an absolute delight, they genuinely care about you and your holiday. Nothing is too much trouble and there’s always a welcoming smile or even a hug (restrictions permitting). All the cottages (yes, we’ve stayed in them all) are of a very high standard and the overall setting is truly amazing. You can’t help but feel relaxed from the moment you arrive. We class Cerrig y Barcud as our second home. It’s a very safe place, where the youngest of children can play happily in the grounds. The scenery is breathtaking, as are the sunsets. Even if you don’t want big days out, just a 5 min walk takes you right onto the Menai Straits. Whatever your holiday plans, Cerrig y Barcud is perfect. Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed. 5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ P.S. We’ve already booked for next year!"

Love stopping at Cerrig y Bacud with a lovely warm welcome,we stayed in the Yr Wyddfa Cottage(thanks!), so relaxing and peaceful.We've been coming here for a few years now and all the cottages are outstanding we've stopped in most of them! Looking forward to coming again in 2022.
Sue & Rich Vernon (Yr Wyddfa Cottage) 09/10/2021
Thank you for your lovely review. It was so good to see you again. We are delighted you enjoyed Yr Wyddfa. Hope to see you again soon - Annmarie

Pete & Gill 21-28 August 2021 (Tryfan Cottage) 22/09/2021
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you had a wonderful holiday. We look forward to seeing you again.
My wife and I have recently had our first holiday experience at Cerrig and it was simply fantastic.
These cottages are in a stunning location by the Menai straits and with a week of sunshine we could not of asked for more.
We stayed in Glyder and it is so cosy and welcoming that we will return in 2022.
Mr Anthony Elliott (Glyder Cottage) 20/09/2021
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted you had a good holiday and truly look forward to seeing you again next year.
We returned today from yet another lovely stay at Cerrig y Barcud. Over the years we have visited many times and stayed in various cottages and are always assured of the warmest of welcomes from Annmarie and Matthew. When we turn the corner and see the glorious view over the Menai Straits it’s like home from home. As always, the cottage was clean and comfortable and all precautions had been taken to keep us safe during these uncertain times. The grounds are a credit to them, being beautifully kept, and we would recommend Cerrig y Barcud as an ideal place for a relaxing break. Next year already booked !!
Jill and John Bradstreet (Glyder Cottage) 03/07/2021
Thank you for a wonderful review. We are delighted to hear you had a lovely holiday. Thank you too for my gorgeous plant. See you both next year 😊
We have just returned from our second stay this year at Cerig y Barcud cottages, as always we have enjoyed every moment. The combination of idyllic surroundings and clean, comfortable, well equipped accommodation makes for the perfect holiday destination. Anne-Marie and Matthew are lovely hosts who go out of their way to ensure your holiday is a memorable one. Always a warm welcome and fond farewell on departure. Anglesey is a beautiful unspoilt island with magnificent beaches and a range of attractions to suit most people. Cerig y Barcud is ideally located close to the Menai Straits with stunning views of Snowdonia. The perfect place for family holidays or a quiet off season break, it ticks all the boxes. We look forward to returning soon.
Pauline & John Gratrix 13/06/2021
We see Carrid y Barcud as our second home. Annmarie and Matthew are the most fantastic people you could ever meet. Nothing is too much trouble. My little boy left his favourite toy and within an hour of emailing he was on his way home! My children have made some lovely friends, which they have kept in touch with. The children are very safe to play out and they just love to feed the animals while we watch the amazing sunset with a glass of wine.. lovely! The cottage was extremely clean with all the things you need to hand. I can not give enough praise, it's just amazing and is somewere we will be returning to forever.
Shirley,Gary,Ruby and Harry Benson (Carnedd Cottage) 06/06/2021
Thank you for a wonderful review. Our little guest are very important to us. We love hearing them play and love how happy they all are. Happy to post home cuddly toy doggie, can't believe he wanted to stay longer ha ha. He must have enjoyed his holiday too. See you all again soon x
We have stayed at Crib Goch for the last few years. It is such a magical place and we have had a wonderful time each time we stay here. Our children love going out to one of the many local attractions and they are so excited to come back later in the day as they can play football or with the frisbee on the large lawns or feed the ponies and goats. They have loved playing outside in the grounds with the other children on holiday too or in the games room. The cottages are always lovely and clean and very comfortable. The views are beautiful too. Each cottage has a lovely sitting out area. Such a special place. Annmarie and Mathew are very welcoming, kind and helpful too.
Katy and Chris and family (Crib Goch Cottage) 05/06/2021
Thank you Katy, we look forward to seeing you again. Glad the children had a wonderful holiday.
Thank you Katy, we look forward to seeing you again. Glad the children had a wonderful holiday.
Our first stay at Cerrig y Barcub and enjoyed every minute. Accommodation was faultless and Annmarie and Mathew provided excellent customer care. Cottage location was very convenient for touring the island and some fantastic local walks. Will certainly be back next year.
Paul and Sue Chadaway (Glyder Cottage) 28/05/2021

Thank you for your amazing review. See you next year !!!
One of the safest places in the whole of Wales to stay and we come back year after year. The welcome is always warm and friendly. The situation of the cottages is perfect and the views are exceptional. Can recommend.
Josie and Ian (Glyder Cottage) 14/05/2021
Thank you for your wonderful review. We always always look forward to see you !!
Our first stay at Cerrig but hopefully not the last!
Beautifully and conveniently situated down by the Straits with close access to many lovely walks.
The accommodation was immaculately clean , comfortable and well appointed for our week’s stay.
We’ll be back!
Tim and Dilys Hodsman (Tryfan Cottage) 10/05/2021
Thank you for your lovely review and for coming to stay with us. We truly do hope to see you again.
Another amazing week at the beautiful Cerrig y Barcud. We have been staying here for over 20 years, at least twice a year. Beautiful tranquil location, close to many beaches, villages and commutable to anywhere on the Island. Lovely high standard, spotless cottages with everything you need. Annmarie and Matt always so welcoming, friendly and there for anything you need. Would highly recommend to anyone
Kirsti and Len Hatswell (Elidir Cottage) 07/05/2021
Thank you !!!
Another amazing week at a Cerrig cottage. This time it was Yr Eifl, but to be honest we've stayed in pretty almost all of them by now. I love the balcony Yr Eifl has off the main bedroom, and though we don't actually need the 3rd bedroom, we definitely find being able to sit there in the evening with a glass of wine and look out over the stunning view of Snowdonia is definitely worth it!

The cottage was impeccably clean and well furnished as always, and we noticed many new improvements since the last time we stayed. What impressed us most though was how much care and attention has been taken to ensure guests feel Covid-safe yet still have a comfortable stay. Each cottage has always had its own private outdoor area, a feature even more valuable these days. The laundry facilities are spotless and a god-send with a 9 year old mud-puppy of a son!

Annmarie and Matt will always go out of their way to help guests with any issues or concerns. There couldn't possibly be better hosts. They have watched our son grow up over the years and I have no doubt we'll still be coming to Cerrig after our son has children of his own.
Cindy, Peter, and Seb (Yr Eifl Cottage) 07/05/2021
Thank you Cindy for a beautiful review. We are truly blessed to have such wonderful guest like yourselves stay with us year on year. Thank you!!
Wonderful holiday in a spotlessly clean cottage in a very relaxing and beautiful place. The views are amazing from our 2 patio areas and so peaceful just listening to the birds. Lots to do locally. Already booked a return visit .
Gill (Yr Wyddfa Cottage) 05/05/2021
Thank you Gill, hope to see you again one day.
Thank you for a wonderful week in Crib Goch cottage. With fabulous views across to Snowdonia and a 4 minute walk down to the sea, the location is stunning. Cottage itself was immaculate and had all mod cons. Biggest bonus was the little private patio/ garden - perfect for socially distanced meals. WiFi a bit variable but small price to pay for tranquility.
Grace (Crib Goch Cottage) 21/04/2021
Thank you Grace. Truly lovely to meet you. Hope we see you again one day soon.
A great place to stay whatever the weather
Another fantastic stay in this gorgeous place. Kids have made some great friends
21/04/2021
I’ve lost count of how many times we’ve stayed at Cerrig y Barcud and each time it gets better and better
I love the table tennis and playground and making lots of friends
Just a quick mail to say we had a lovely time at Elidir Cottage, we both agreed it was the best self catering cottage we’ve stayed in this country.
(Elidir Cottage)
Loved seeing the horses every morning waiting for a carrot! So peaceful we don’t want to leave
Lovely cottage in a wonderful location. Anglesey has so much to offer and we’ve had a fab week!
Lovely location and quality accommodation. One of those ‘will be back places’
Lovely part of Wales. Beautiful scenery. Wish we had longer.
Lovely sunsets and a night studded with diamond stars and a crescent moon
Many owners make claims about supposedly ‘excellent’ accommodation and location – but yours truly is!
Our favourite holiday home has worked it’s magic again
Our first stay here – but not our last! Thank you very much for a lovely weekend
Perfect for families, lovely hosts, beautiful part of the world.
So peaceful and quiet. Lovely outlook and animals very entertaining. Great to be so close to Menai
The accommodation is spotless and very warm to come back to after a day’s hiking
The goats gave us much amusement!
The kids had a good time and so did the grown ups!
We couldn’t believe the view every morning – just fantastic. Cottage lovely and homely
We found a hermit crab at the beach! Thank you for the monster duvet cover – it gave me monstery dreams! I enjoyed playing and I want to come here again (aged 4 and a half)
We love the cottages – they are beautifully furnished and we appreciate the attention to detail to ensure we have everything we need
We really wanted to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had with you! The cottage was a home from home and so peaceful, we really miss waking up and looking out on the animals and the mountains, it was so beautiful. Charlotte fell in love with Bandit and the goats and was very sad to leave. Thank you again, you have a truly lovely place to stay we could not have asked for better!
We would like to thank you again for a fantastic holiday, all of our needs were more than catered for. Sophie cried on returning home and didn’t want to come into the house crying ” I want to go back on my holidays“. Can’t wait to visit your very own piece of paradise again soon.
What can we say? A small piece of heaven!
Yasmin and Lily loved feeding and petting the animals and making new friends
Yet another excellent holiday here!
