  • "This house was wonderful to stay in and has the most incredible sea view."

    It was very comfortable for 8 of us to spend the week in and I would thoroughly recommend to others for a wonderful base to explore a beautiful part of the UK.

  • "Everything about this property was absolutely superb!"

    The house is amazing, with spectacular views. The facilities and finish to the property was pure quality. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was that only two bedrooms had an en-suite. The rest of the bathrooms, although very nice, were either across the corridor or down a flight of stairs. I’m sure that the massive bedroom on the third floor could have a shower room incorporated into it some how. The drive is very steep and very narrow. We struggled to open the car doors to get out and unload when parked on it. There is room however for 2 cars to be parked at the bottom of the drive. (The big refuse bin situated at the bottom of the drive stops a third car being parked there). The living room area is very lovely and comfortable, although this only comfortably seats 6/7 people on the sofas (we had a party of 9 people) so we had to bring in the dining room chairs from the other room. The kitchen area is one of the nicest kitchens I’ve ever had the pleasure of cooking in - absolutely amazing and well stocked with big enough saucepans etc - loved it. Brilliant property, great location - would definitely recommend.

  • "Anyone who stays at Bryn Ogwen will be impressed."

    What a lovely house, comfortable, well equipped, acceptably clean and with amazing views. Comfy beds too. Although it's by a road, we found it to be quiet. Easy access to the A5 nearby, and good places to eat a short walk away. The property description 'Be greeted by off-road parking for three cars', doesn't explain that the drive is too narrow to open the car doors. We had to get one car through the gates at the top and leave the other 2 at the foot of the very steep drive. The oldest member of our group had to be helped both up and down the drive. It would really help if the drive was wider and had a hand rail. The provided postcode is to a street called Bryn Ogwen over a mile way. The correct postcode and address can be found on Google maps or Bing maps etc Sykes Cottages were as usual excellent in their communication and booking process. The manager of the property kindly emailed in advance to see if we had any queries and to see how we wanted the beds configured etc. Overall an excellent holiday experience in a property that we really liked and enjoyed. Many thanks.

  • "A beautiful, well equipped house with excellent facilities, but not for the feint-hearted."

    The driveway is very steep but excellent for your fitness. The internal doors were extremely heavy, too heavy for anyone under the age of 4 or with upper body mobility issues. The views from all the front rooms are incredible, and the addition of the telescope to the dining room was a lovely touch.

  • "The property was in immaculate condition."

    The photos on the website did not do justice to the size and grandeur of each of the rooms. The property far exceeded our expectations and is worthy of full 5 star rating.

About the location

BANGOR

Menai Bridge 2.5 miles; Beaumaris 7 miles; Caernarfon 10 miles; Llanberis 11 miles.

Bangor is a university town on the North Wales coast with a large range of shops, bars and restaurants. It is the main crossing point for the Isle of Anglesey with two road bridges across the Menai Strait. Across the water, the castle and pier at Beaumaris make a lovely day out, or you can catch a boat to enjoy a trip out to Puffin Island. The Anglesey Coastal Path takes in beautiful scenery, and the island is home to many fine beaches including Rhosneigr, Trearddur Bay and Red Wharf Bay. The NT mansion Plas Newydd is on the island, while on the mainland further NT properties can be found including Penrhyn Castle and Bodnant Gardens. The spectacular mountains and lakes of Snowdonia are just a short drive way, with plenty of castles, beaches and other attractions on offer in this wonderful region. Bangor and the Menai Straits really do offer the best of both worlds!
