“This small cottage has a great location with an easy walk into the centre of Beaumaris. Although there is no private parking we always found a space nearby. The house was really clean with small vases of fresh wild flowers in all the rooms. Bread, milk, tea and coffee were left as well as wine, cheese, clotted cream and jam.”
