Also your not far from barmouth which you have to visit it has a lovely sandy beach it's great. You can have a night out in the pub great food and beer just around the corner. That's why were going back next year . Love it”

    • “We stayed in this cottage for a week in February this year. It was a great cottage - clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen was well kitted out. The location was good too, the village of Llanbedr is very pretty and the cottage is located opposite a lovely river. The cottage is near the coast, within striking distance of Snowdon and Cader Idris and there are plenty of things to do and see around the area. All in all a very relaxing week in a lovely cottage.”

    • “Had a great week at Trevlyn - named after former occupants, Trevor and Lynne - in the charming little village of Llanbedr. We've been to the area many times over the past 30 odd years but normally camp. This time we thought we'd treat ourselves. The cottage has everything you're going to need for an enjoyable stay in North Wales including bedding, towels, well equipped kitchen, TV, great little wood burner for those cool autumn evenings, even has some books and DVD's. It comfortably sleeps 5 - two doubles and one single - and is great value for money. Parking's not a problem either, on the road outside - not sure how this would change in the main holiday periods though. The electricity is on a key meter and comes with £15.00 already installed - I think the caretaker puts £15.00 on, whatever's left in the meter, as when we turned up there was over £18.00, and when we departed, there was still £7.87 left and we'd both showered every day, cooked a couple of meals every day, watched tv most evenings after the pub, done a couple of full washes in the washing machine and had the water heater on continually. We never used the heating though so don't know how long your money will last in cooler months. Be aware that the mobile signal in Llanbedr is pretty bad - couldn't get a signal at all in the cottage, but crossed the road and sat on the wall by the river and was able to make calls and got 3g most days. The cottage doesn't have Wi-Fi either, which is something we'd happily pay an extra £10.00 per week for, but The Victoria Inn - about a munite walk away - has free Wi-Fi (best signal in the front bar). The cottage could also do with curtains/blinds on the back windows downstairs, to further enhance the comfort of the place and to make it feel a bit more private. We'd definitely recommend Trevlyn to anyone looking for a cosy well equipped cottage in this part of North Wales.”

    • “Well equipped and well located”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “I was most impressed with the standard of this rental - the decor was very tasteful, the kitchen surprisingly well equipped, and village has a small number of good shops, including a butcher and the sort of deli shop rarely seen outside North London. The pub across the road has good beer and a nice garden. The house has been fully insulated to a high standard and has a wood burner stove to supplement the electric heating. The house is supplied with a £15 electric credit which was enough to last two of us the (coldish) week that we stayed - the meter is topped up at the local shop. The bed was very comfortable and the house was off the main road, although I suspect that it might be a bit noisier in the summer as it is on the direct route to the beach. There is a nice terrace at the back which gets the sun most of the day (sun is an optional extra in Wales). Parking outside the property was easy and it is relatively near a train station. Mobile reception in the area is quite poor and I needed to go to the top floor to get a weak signal. There is no WiFi in the property. However, these all make it quite a peaceful stay as you are no longer hassled by the electronics!”

The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped, would rent again and recommend the beautiful location. Would give a score of 100 plus - thank you for a fab holiday.”

    • “Lovely cottage, very clean and comfortable. Good location.”

    Mrs Wisely, Ipswich, August 2014

    • “This was the first time we had hired a cottage but our family that joined us had used Sykes before. We had nothing to compare it to but thought the place was lovely and an excellent location. Our family guests said they thought it was above usual standards and also loved it. Being near to the beach and some beautiful walks suited everyone's different ideas of relaxation! Having a garden was a bonus as it gave that extra space for 5 people to have time out! The cottage was spotless which was thanks to the caretaker who obviously takes pride in her work. Thank you.”

About the location


Harlech 3 miles; Barmouth 8 miles.

The pretty village of Llanbedr quietly nestles between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline, whilst also being situated next to the swiftly-flowing River Artro. Boasting a mild climate due to its unusual positioning, and an exciting array of wildlife and birds, this charming village provides good local shops and an excellent pub. The small town of Harlech is just 3 miles away and boasts the World Heritage Site of Harlech Castle, a majestic 13th century stronghold, the most impressive of all those built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants and the most magnificent six-mile long sandy beach, perfect for wonderful walks and family fun. Nearby Barmouth offers the amazing Panorama Walk along the beautiful Mawddach Estuary, providing breathtaking vistas, which were described by John Ruskin as “the most sublime view in Europe” and also a harbour from which you can catch a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway, or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
