Guest Reviews


    • “Great cottage, great location!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A lovely welcoming cottage with everything you could possibly need for a carefree, relaxing holiday. The village shop almost next door, friendly locals and situated as it is means you can easily explore north, east, south and west. Can definitely recommend it. Just one tip: if you don't get back to the cottage before the locals get back from work in the evening the parking spaces in the off road bay can be full.”

    • “A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the country, the open fire gives the cottage a homely feel (wood provided) and facilities are excellent. A selection of board games, films and CD's are also available. Contrary to a previous comment, parking was never a problem. Would definately recommend.”

    • “The cottage was in a fabulous location, with easy distances to most attractions. The cottage itself was very clean and a very comfortable place to stay; all the facilities you required. My friends and I felt there was no need to install an internet connection, a holiday for us is relaxing and sight-seeing. I say this because a comment left in the guest book stated it would be a better place if there was an internet connection. There are plenty of holiday lets in North Wales area that advertise an internet connection - so do not choose a let that has no interent. I think that is an unfair expense to put on the owners. I would recommend Sykes Holiday Cottages to all. The whole service was faultless.”
