  • "The cottage was very nice, very clean & comfortable."

    I’ve had 2 holiday cottages for 19 years so I’m quite fussy. The only thing I would say is I’ve not been to a property that doesn’t have a bottle of toilet cleaner.

  • "The cottage was immaculate."

    Very comfortable sofas and beds, warm and cosy, well-equipped kitchen, plenty of hot water and a brilliant shower. Lovely outdoor space. Excellent location for travelling to Anglesey, Snowdon and surrounding peaks, and the fabulous ZipWorld is just 10 minutes away. Huge Tesco Extra at Bangor less than 15 mins away too. We also enjoyed the attention of the beautiful and very friendly neighbouring cat! A very enjoyable holiday!

  • "The cottage was in a perfect location to explore footpaths and local attractions."

    It was cosy and very clean and had everything you could want was a home from home. Beds were comfortable and the sofas can't fault anything. We will definitely stay there again in the future.

    You can easily visit anywhere in north Wales with this cottage as a base.

  • "Lovely old cottage, which has been completely modernised and well equipped, particularly the large walk in shower that's great for getting a young family all clean after a beach day - wow there are some beautiful beaches nearby!"

    Excellent base for exploring North Wales, just a short drive from the expressway going East West and the A5 going North South. Literally our only gripe was the double bed mattress comfort, could feel the springs and bounced quite a bit, at least needs a foam topper perhaps a higher quality mattress. Didn't get in the way of a fantastic holiday though, thank you!

  • "Fantastic cottage,when we arrived we thought that it had just been decorated and we were one of the first to use it(it was so clean) Then reading the visitors book we could see that many couples had been before."

    Covid-19 fears were soon forgotten. Tregarth was the perfect location,most places of interest were close enough(the fantastic Zip wire was only ten minutes away)A pity the local pub was shut and we had to drive or get a taxi to eat out.Small things that couldn't be helped. Thank you Sykes. We had a memorable holiday.

    We were welcomed with a christmas tree, bottle of fizz and a tin of cookies, a useful large foil roasting tray and enough kindling and logs for a couple of days fire. Mr. Owen was quick to respond to a couple of issues we had. Would choose to stay here again.

  • "The cottage is well finished and looks like it has only recently been refurbished."

    It has decent internet connectivity which can be an issue in Wales. The washing machine and dryer are an added bonus as not all places have these facilities.A good selection of crockery, glasses and decent plates etc.Excellent shower.Ideally located for things to see and visit in the North of Wales. Good outside area to have breakfast in the sun. The bad bits, the sofas in the cottage pictures are not the ones in the cottage, in fact the living room layout was completely different, I expect to have what is in the property description as that is one of the reasons it was booked in the first place. There is nowhere to put soap, shower gel, shampoo in the shower. The single room where our granddaughter slept is opposite the kitchen and the road is on the other side, the single glazed windows and traditional doors don't stop the noise so it can be a bit of an issue for families trying to get young children to sleep. No brochures or information apart from the brief information in the file. No games in the cupboard or recycling bin under the sink (both in the information pack). The only real bug bear for us was the Property Hand Back Policy, strip all the beds, clean the oven, clean the fridge, empty all the bins, basically clean from top to bottom before you leave at 10 . It doesn't leave a lot of time to get a shower, dressed, breakfast, pack your car etc before 10. You also have to put the bins out the night before, which we did, only for them not to be collected (large bin gets collected every 3 weeks, no idea when next due collection). Most people will clean what they have used so maybe it could be worded less like a list to a cleaning company or put in the booking information so that guests are aware.

    The owners should be proud of their achievements providing a cottage we could find no fault with.

    E. Tin opener, proper freezer, toilet brush, potato peeler. These may seem a bit unessential but would have made the holiday a bit more relaxing. But would like to say thank you to the owners for our lovely stay.

About the location


Bangor 5 miles.

Tregarth is a traditional Welsh village, originating from the slate mining industry but now a friendly village with a traditional pub and active village community centre. The old railway tracks for the mines have been closed and converted into cycle paths as part of the 250-mile Lon Las Cymru network from Cardiff to Holyhead, which winds its way through the Nant Francon Pass alongside the Ogwen river to Llyn Owen. Two miles away is Bethesda, a small town on the River Ogwen in North Wales with a number of shops, chapels and pubs. The coastal city of Bangor is six miles away and is best known for its university. Bangor also has a harbour and is close to the Thomas Telford-designed Menai Suspension Bridge which links the mainland to the Isle of Anglesey. South of Tregarth is the Snowdonia National Park with its stunning mountain walks, breathtaking scenery and many towns and villages. Capel Curig is a popular centre for walking, climbing and mountain biking whilst Llanberis is situated at the foot of Mount Snowdon and is home to the Snowdon Mountain Railway, the National Slate Museum and the High Ropes activity centre.
