A dramatic hillside contemporary cottage, Ysgubor Penralt was finished and decorated to offer a taste of luxury. A few miles west along the coast road from Bangor and on the outskirts of Y Felinheli, this holiday establishment is nearby stunning sandy beaches and quite accessible from the Plas Menai National Water sports Centre which has an indoor swimming pool.
There are strong reasons to visit Ysgubor Penralt all year round but particularly during the summer months. It is a stone-built and detached holiday apartment within a farm building recently converted into modern luxurious apartments featuring fine furniture and earthy tones, wood finishes and soft neutral ccolours around the cottage.
This coastal holiday cottage in North Wales is wonderfully equipped with oil central heating and has a kitchen fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and freezer, and dishwasher.
Entertainment facilities consist of a television set, a DVD player, a CD radio and iPod dock. A washing machine is available on site. Relax outside on sunny days and balmy evenings on a raised patio garden with furniture for barbecues. There is also off-road parking for one car, and sheltered bike storage. From the cottage and its garden, gaze at beautiful views of the Menai Straits.
The nearby village of Y Felinheli is home to a small but established yachting marina and visitors will be treated to stunning views of Snowdonia or rugged beaches on the Isle of Anglesey, both within easy reach. Spending time at the beach, biking trips, and a visit to the Water sports Centre nearby are highly recommended activities.

A great holiday
The best holiday cottage we have stayed at. Well planned accomodation .Provided everything needed for a restful holiday. Also provided lots of opportunities for walks both adventurous and gentle.
Comfortable funiture and beautiful views.
The elevated position afforded views across to Anglesey from both the cottage and the patio. The barn conversion and the fittings and furnishings were of a high quality and made for an enjoyable stay.
One minor downside of the elevated position is that you will probably need the car to get anywhere, particularly if elderly.
The patio overlooks the owners garden which has a play area equipped with a trampoline etc. for their children. We found them to be well behaved and reasonably quiet but it might spoil the romantic setting for some, or at least remind them of the consequences!
The owners were unobstrusive, but on hand if you needed them.
Perfectly located cottage. We stayed here on our honeymoon and will definitely be returning. The cottage has beautiful views and is exceptionally clean.
The only good thing about this cottage was the view.
We found it had not been cleaned properly throughout,and did not appreciate the 4.30 am wake up call from 40+sheep in the field next to the cottage.
Barn Conversation with Good Views over the Menai Straits & Anglesey
Good sized barn conversation in an elevated position with good views towards Anglesey across the Menai Straits.
The owners are very pleasant and whilst living close by, they do not intrude.
The accommodation is split over two levels and is a two person property.
On the ground floor is a spacious bedroom with patio windows overlooking the view.
Next door is a spacious well equipped kitchen / diner with the same windows & views.
Upstairs is the lounge, accessed from the kitchen by a spiral staircase.
The staircase is quite steep and has polished wood treads. Take care or you could easily loose your footing.
Downstairs on the other side of the kitchen is the bathroom. this was a bit of a let down as it is very compact, could have done with being another two foot wider. I see no reason why they could not have made it wider as there is extra space in an empty room at the end of the property that the owner seems to use as a storage area, if fact it was larger than the bathroom.
Whilst the property was clean and reasonably equipped, it does miss the extra touches to warrant the 5 star rating that Sykes give the property.
There was no welcome pack, not even a pint of milk.
The only TV in the property was in the upstairs lounge and it took a little while to get used to using the two remotes needed to get a picture.
A TV on the wall in the kitchen / dining area would have been a bonus.
Wheelchair Users - Whilst there is wheelchair access to the bedroom from outside, and from there into the kitchen / dining room, the bathroom would be out of bounds unless you could walk in.
The property is quite high up and the walk to the village shop & pub is only recommended for the fittest of people. It is exceedingly steep so be warned - better to take the car or get a taxi if you are going to the pub.
There is little choice for eating out in the area, so be prepared to travel or eat in.
The property is however conveniently situated for exploring Anglesey, Snowdonia, The Llyn Peninsular and beyond.
Would we return? Well maybe, but there are much more comfortable properties available in the area and especially over in Anglesey.
We had a fantastic time and cannot praise our cottage enough. We were sorry to leave. Thank you!
The fantastic views from the property and the location in the area with lots to see and do (even on wet days).
The decor and furnishings were straight out of a magazine - perfect! The location was great, with gorgeous views, and close to many attractions.
Together with warm hosts - this is the perfect getaway, and we will definitely return!! Highly recommended - Thank You!

A great place to stay, so refreshing to have a modern, contemporary 'home from home'. We thoroughly recommend it.
The cottage was bright, airy and modern. It had been cleaned to a high standard and provided all that we needed. The additional directions given by the owner were helpful and we were warmly greeted on arrival.
The views from the cottage were magnificent, plenty of room to park the car and the recent introduction of wi-fi was an added bonus.
A beautiful property finished to excellent standards with fantastic views across the Menai Straits.
The cottage was a very good base for exploring Snowdon & Anglesey. Shops and restaurants were very close if you didn't want to do to much driving. We had a really great time and would love to go back!
The quality of the accommodation and the views from the same. Proximity to Snowdonia with access to many attractions.
The cottage was to a very high quality specification which was matched by the brilliant views over the Menai Straits. Well located for Snowdonia, Lleyn Peninsula and Anglesey. The owners were friendly and helpful.

The standard and layout of the property are excellent and its location and views absolutely wonderful. The sunsets from any of the many windows are absolutely amazing. There can't be many places where you can witness such beauty whilst eating your supper!
The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Plenty of places to visit.
This is an excellent property and the views are fantastic.
This was one of the best holiday cottages we have rented. The owners were very helpful. The views from all the rooms are wonderful.
It was a great and comfortable base for exploring Snowdonia. The area was peaceful, yet close enough to supermarkets and retail outlets to make it a practical and relaxing holiday. The owner was very helpful and on hand if needed, but never intrusive. The cottage was clean, bright and fresh, with lovely views from every room. We loved this cottage and the area!

Beautifully appointed cottage with outstanding views over the Menai Straits to Anglesey. Comfortably furnished and homely. The owners who lived next to the cottage were kindly disposed and approachable; they met our every need.
The best cottage we have ever stayed in. Plenty to see and do within 20 miles and all the main supermarkets within 5 miles. Views to die for and time permitting we will definitely do a return visit. Never relaxed so much on a holiday!
The cottage was wonderful. It was clean, warm, comfortable and most important, relaxing. We would recommend the cottage without hesitation.
A lovely cottage which was very clean and warm. The cottage was situated in a great location with good views of the Menai Strait, well located as a touring base. We enjoyed a relaxing holiday.
Location was very good for accessing all the sights we wished to visit. Y Sgubor Penrallt was quiet with lovely views and an overall modern vibe.
Fantastically located cottage, exceptionally clean and tidy with brilliant views over the Menai.
Ysgubor Penrallt was comfortable and well equipped for a self catering break. The location is excellent, providing stunning views over the Menai Strait. It is also ideally situated to explore Anglesey, Snowdonia and the northwest coastline.
This was a beautiful property set in magnificent surroundings, with easy access to all facilities. We booked this to have quality undisturbed time; this is easily achieved here and the owners are welcoming and offer help with anything if needed.
A clean & comfortable property which was well maintained.
The cottage surpassed our expectations. We have been in holiday rentals for the past few years, and this property is the best we have stayed in.
Wonderful location. Accommodation perfect.
The cottage is well appointed and luxuriously comfortable. The thing that strikes one upon arrival is the magnificent view over the Menai straits into Anglesey. It is breathtaking. The sunsets over Anglesey are spectacular.
Well presented property
The property was very well appointed and had fantastic views over the Menai Straits. It was ideal for a couple and we would like to visit again.
everything that we could have wished for in any accomodation
The house was excellant.
Wish it was a little nearer to the local pub although in summer probably wouldnt matter.
the very lovely views from front windows.
A very comfortable cottage but lacked any personal or warm touches. It was well equipped but rather functional. There was no 'welcome pack' of any kind not even a small jug of milk or a tea bag. We did leave a few basics behind for next visitors. It was, however, a lovely location and excellent barn conversion.
we had a wonderful stay, and every thing about the cottage was top notch, location and views supurb,and owner was very helpful
Luxury and Superb Views
Very luxurious property with all fittings of the highest quality. Superb view from every room and the patio area. Spacious and well equipped. The bathroom was quite compact, compared to the rest of the property, but quite adequate. Very good centre to visit the beaches of anglesey/Lleyn and the mountains of Snowdonia. Superstore only 5 mins away by car. Walking into town for local services is only for the very enthusiastic - expect nobody does this twice! That's why it has such a good view, and is so quiet and private.
