Great Base to explore anglesey
Very pleasant stay at this cottage in the heart of Beaumaris. A perfect location for a quiet break but also with a good choice of pubs and restaurants within walking distance.
Cottage clean with a large bathroom with pleasant shower. Beds soft and comfortable. Lovely garden for meals outside and small breakfast table if the weather isn’t as warm/dry
Clean, comfortable cottage in great location
Service5.0 Lovely cottage, in a central but peaceful location in the town centre. Could hear the church bells ringing which our grandson (2yrs) was very curious about, he had to visit the church each day! Very clean and comfortable cottage with a lovely garden! Fabulous bakery nearby…recommend the bara brith and the Welsh cheddar cheese and red onion bread! Had a brill time on the pier ‘crabbing’, lovely children’s park and outdoor paddling pool. Visited some beautiful beaches! Only downside was restricted parking outside the cottage, but we bought a weekly parking pass for ‘the green’ for £12 (it was a few minutes walk from the cottage) and could come and go as we pleased…plenty of parking spaces available! Definitely go again!

A lovely week in Guillemot
Really liked the cottage’s stylish interior and convenient location. Beaumaris is a lovely place to be based and the cottage is perfectly positioned, near to everything, yet not on a main road. Easy walk to the sea front, with its wonderful views across the Menai Straits to the mountains of Snowdonia. Plenty of good places to eat out nearby too.
Good place to stay with easy links to rest of Anglesey. Easy access to shops and activities in Beaumaris. Comfortable lounge with good woodburner. CD player and CDs provided. Bedrooms spacious and comfortable. Vast majority of those who stay would like to see WiFi at the property, especially as phone signal is not always good either. Kitchen is small and space is a bit limited but it works fine for a week’s holiday. Parking is an issue but ask locally and you will find out where its ok to park.
Home from home
Guillemot was well equipped and had everything for our family holiday. Beatifully decorated and clean. It’s in a fantastic location in the middle of Beaumaris,though the garden area at the rear backs on to open country so you also get the feel of a more rural retreat. Been in the centre does mean there is no parking for the property however there is parking in and around the town. Would not hesitate to return.
This is a very well appointed cottage. it had been thoughtfully equipped and information on all the appliances was available. Perhaps a non slip mat for the shower would be a good idea and also a full length mirror.
Stay at Guillemot in Beaumaris
Stayed at Guillemot for a long weekend. Was very happy with the property, everything clean and tidy and property was in excellent condition. Would stay there again. Only slight issue was that sometimes using the toaster would cause the fuse to trip. Parking was also a slight issue as no dedicated parking, although public car parks are available nearby for a small cost.
perfect base to explore
“1st time visitors to Beaumaris – a quality 2 bedroomed cottage fully equipped to cater for couples and families alike. Nicely decorated and by owners who appreciate quality. Welcome local fruit loaf and milk for tea – nice touches- very good information pack .
We had wonderful weather which made a difference as we used cottage as base to explore the islands’ abundant walking opportunities.
Parking in area in winter months is difficult but not insurmountable – however this will be an additional cost during summer months as free parking is at a premium in the area. The stairs were steep – as you would expect in these properties which may lead it to be perhaps unsuitable for those less good on their feet.
We loved the cottage and area and would be looking to return”

This house is fantastic, so convenient for the shops, the beach, bowls on the green, the castle, children enjoying themselves at the park
Beautifully furnished and decorated cottage in very central location
Beautifully furnished and decorated cottage in very central location. Parking close by on village green by waterside. Lots do do in area, great base to stay. Classy shops in Beaumaris and lovely beaches at red wharf bay/ benllech. Very comfortable and homely home from home; with everything needed for stay. Added benefit – the man that owns the cottage next door was very friendly and sorted out our bins on bin day – cant guarantee he will for everyone though!
The attention to detail is superb
Congratulations on your creation of this beautiful house. The attention to detail is superb
An idyllic getaway
We have stayed at the cottage twice and have thoroughly enjoyed both times there. It is located in the heart of Beaumaris with access on foot to the lovely village centre, shops, galleries and restaurants. The decor is extremely tasteful and stylish and we have enjoyed relaxing in front of the wood burner as well as bbqs in the cottage garden. The thoughtfully restored property has all the charm of a quaint village property with exceptional comfort. There are great local guides including a fantastic book of coastal walks which help to explore the island. We will be back!
