  • "Lovely cottage, comfortable, well equipped."

    Stairs quite a challenge.

  • "So clean, full equipment and amazing comfort."

    100% recommended.

  • "Loved the cottage and the location."

    We had everything we needed and it was a great base for trips out. The kitchen diner was a lovely space which opened outside through a stable door. Comfy and cosy and watched a few of the DVDs provided. Great shower - really powerful. Would not hesitate to recommend as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only things I would improve at a push would be 100% cotton bedding (mine was a bit scratchy) and a working coffee machine,

  • "We loved the place, but there heating didn't work, and neither did the hot water."

    It would've been a huge problem if we hadn't stayed there in August. If this problem got solved, the house would be perfect.

  • "Just a few issues."

    Not enough towels.No bins for houshold rubbish so no recycling and rubbish left outside in black bin bags.On the plus side the kitchen was amazing although it was down some steep slate steps.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Some tlc required. Key for back door only works on inside. Bathroom handle needs repairing. Not told about builders who were there for 3 days, working on next doors porch, working from our garden. Apart from that, it was a beautiful cottage just far away from Bangor without being too far. Picked up a lot of cat poo as well as our dogs!!!!!!! Will come back there again when we are ready to come back to North Wales.

  • "Tea towels and scourer/sponge for washing dishes would be appreciated."

    Also perhaps an extra roll or two of toilet paper for stays of longer than one or two days. Otherwise, the house is very comfortable and cosy. Ideally situated in small village in farmland on the very edge of Bangor within easy distance of pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, etc.

  • "Second time we have stayed here."

    Ideal location for surrounding area and very comfortable Good WIFI, shower and central heating with own parking (Please note no hot water or heating on arrival as boiler turned off but this was easily sorted) Also Parking spot got very muddy in rain (and uneven) Maybe this could be looked at.

  • "This is a nice cottage, with character, own parking and very well located."

    It will easily accommodate 4 adults and 2 children. The kitchen is very well equipped and the facilities are generally good, just a bit dated, but fair for the price charged. The neighbourhood is quiet and the cottage is a great base for visiting the wonderful surroundings. The only objection we have is the cleanliness of the property: it simply needs a deep clean. The corners in the bathroom and kitchen had old dust, the carpets will certainly benefit from a good wet clean. The owner may want to check with their servicing company and hope this will be sorted. Another thing that was a problem when we arrived was a strong smell of gasoline in the lobby and the kitchen; it took us a while to figure it out: it was an open box of bbq firelighters which was left in the cupboard above the kitchen stairs, which we packed tightly in a plastic bag to avoid the smell escaping, but may BBQ fuel should not be stored in the cottage at all. I wonder why the servicing staff did not investigate the smell/ remove the the firelighters box as they were leaving the property as we arrived. Also, there was a black rubbish back near the gate in the back, I assume it was from the previous guests, but I would have hoped the service staff to remove it. We would return to this cottage, because we liked it. I just hope my comments can make future guests' stay more pleasant.

  • "The house is in need of some TLC."

    No recycling facilities available & the bin was full from previous visitors. Lovely quiet area & good for exploring local attractions. Such a shame that the cleanliness of the house wasnt what I expected.

  • "A very well equipped cottage in a convenient location."

    Easy to walk into Bangor or drive further afield. Parking is easy. Might need to address the rubbish collection. The blue recycling bins are missing. The normal rubbish collection is every 3 weeks and the bin was full when we left and not due for collection until next Wednesday. The vacuum cleaner didn't work. We left a note about it. However it was a very pleasant stay. We are booked with Sykes again the the Autumn.

  • "The house is in a great location very quiet with sheep in the field around it and having parking on the front was great as the road outside is quite narrow, all the big shops, supermarkets and restaurants of Bangor not far away."

    Great base for seeing the sites of North Wales. The house is nice there was one issue that needs some attention the bottom step of the stairs is not a full step it is cut at a angle and myself and my son both went to step on the missing part and hurt our self’s as not expecting such a drop. This needs to be a made a full step. The carpet in the downstairs hallway has a massive stain on it covered by a mat, if this was replaced and better quality carpet was fitted would make the downstairs area so much nicer.

  • "The cottage itself was very comfortable and homely and we thoroughly enjoyed staying there."

    The general decor and the state of some of the carpets was a little shabby and I would have thought that during the lockdowns the owners could have arranged for the carpets to be cleaned and a kick of paint in some of the rooms. I certainly wouldn't pay the prices they are asking for the summer holidays.

The property

Bangor 1.5 miles.

Resting in the small village of Minffordd, near to the bustling city of Bangor, is this mid-terrace cottage, Pen Dinas.

Set over three floors, Pen Dinas is a charming and homely setting for your next North Wales adventure, within easy reach of the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park and the Isle of Anglesey.

A sought-after off-road parking spot on the drive greets you on arrival, along with a neat, enclosed front garden before you step into the handy porch to leave any coats and shoes.

Relax in the sitting room after a busy day and light the open fire for extra warmth as you gather with your group to watch a film on the TV with a DVD player.

Travel down the slate stairs to the lower ground floor to find the lovely kitchen/diner, with all the essential appliances you need to rustle up your favourite home-cooked meals, along with a handy washing machine!

Back on the ground floor; discover one of three bedrooms, a double with attractive pine furniture to store your things in, along with the bathroom, which boasts a bath and overhead shower.

Travel up to the first floor to find another double bedroom and a bunk room, with the latter being perfect for children and boasting a TV with a PlayStation.

Minffordd is just a stone's throw away from the vibrant city of Bangor which overlooks the Menai Strait; you can look forward to strolling along Bangor Promenade and venturing out along Garth Pier for lovely views over the water and out to Anglesey.

Enjoy the excellent choice of pubs and restaurants in Bangor, along with supermarkets and shops, as well as a lively night scene in this university town.

Bangor is also home to its own array of history to be discovered at Cadeirlan Bangor Cathedral and Gwynedd Museum & Art Gallery, both worth a visit for history enthusiasts.

On sunny days, head to the Isle of Anglesey to find a fabulous selection of beaches at Benllech, Beaumaris and Newborough to name a few, as well as the Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel Farm Park and Anglesey Model Village & Café.

Embark on some epic walks in the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park with mountains such as Glyder Fawr, Carnedd Llewelyn and Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) itself all boasting excellent walking routes with views from the top that make it all worth it.

Head to the town of Llanberis resting at the foot of Snowdon and visit the Electric Mountain hydro power station, take a trip on the Llanberis Lake Railway or take the leisurely route up Snowdon to the summit via the Snowdon Mountain Railway, which leaves from Llanberis station.

For a fantastic trip to North Wales choose Pen Dinas.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


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 Eryri (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!
