  • "The house is fabulous it’s our 3rd stay."

    The only reason i downgrade on comfort the two single beds in the small room aren’t that comfortable otherwise it a great place to stay

  • "Very clean, everything you needed."

    In a really nice place, quiet. Home from home. Nice walks around. Close to the beach. It’s just a lovely place, well worth staying here.

  • "I would definitely recommend a stay here."

    The house is beautiful and was very warm and spotlessly clean. The kitchen and utility room are really well equipped, and there were plenty of towels available. The only suggestion I have is that the Sykes description could mention that the first part of any car journey involves a drive up a steep and narrow road. Thankfully it's short and one way, so there was no risk of meeting another vehicle. The owners are really friendly and helpful. They took the trouble to contact us before our stay and very kindly offered to post something that we left behind.

  • "We all loved the cottage and were really impressed when we arrived as it was even better than the pictures."

    It was equipped with everything, was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The trains, buses (which were exactly on time) and shop were a short walk away. We would return again in the future. The only problem we had was having to keep our Jack Russel dog on a lead in the garden as he found a gap to get out on the first day.

  • "The property was brilliant modern clean and well equipped."

    We couldn't have asked for anything better, it was for our golden wedding anniversary and two birthdays celebrations. The house was on a quiet lane with sea views and close to the popular tourist attraction and the beautiful beach of Harlech ( which the dog loved). Would definitely recommend and return and would give more stars if I could.

    Central base for visiting close beaches/castles/walks. Had a lovely week with family. If you’re thinking of renting this property - do it! Lots of lovely additions such as a welcome pack and Sky TV packages.

    It has everything you need for a fantastic holiday, and I get such good sleeps, the beds are so comfy. Great for families and I was even happy there on my own. The owners are just quite simply lovely people, nothing is too much trouble and they left a wonderful welcome hamper. I will be booking again for sure.

  • "Bryn Hafod is beautiful."

    We have stayed in a lot of places over the years and this was the best! The property was very clean, lovely furnishings and we had everything we needed. We used the train and local buses to go out and about, the bus stop and train station are close by. Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying here, a luxurious property and is highly recommended.

  • "Bryn Hafod is a lovely modern comfortable home, far more spacious than we were expecting."

    The open plan living is designed really well with clear zones for eating, lounging etc. and the kitchen is very well equipped with more than ample crockery, utensils etc. The sleeping and bathing facilities worked really well for us, group of 7 from 3 households, with each household having it own bath/shower room. There are lovely sea views from the house and its location is great for access to sandy beaches, beautiful countryside, pretty seaside resorts such as Criccieth and Beaumaris, and Zip World for those wanting an adrenalin fix. Bryn Hafod was ideal for us and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

    We had a lovely stay, although a couple of the window blinds wouldn’t stay down over night so it was bright in the room very early, other than that the house was beautiful and the welcome pack is a very nice thought

  • "Fantastic place to stay, has everything needed to enjoy a good break."

    Only concern was that the listing stated totally enclosed garden, of which it appeared to be? however the gate at the front of the property had come off and was replaced by a pallet (obviously a short term fix?). Unfortunately for us the pallet had not been put back in place to make the garden enclosed, consequently one of our dogs went on walk about on the first afternoon of the stay and caused a panic for 15 minutes until we found her near to the main road. Not a good start to the holiday but we quickly got over it and had a good break.

  • "We had wonderful stay at the Bryn Hafod a week before Christmas."

    Everything about the Bryn Hafod was a 5 stars and we have stayed in many Sykes accommodations so this was in our top 3. The house its generous size, with lovely bedrooms, comfortable beds and super equipped kitchen. Great size living room space as well as conservatory so plenty of space to relax with a drink and a book on a rainy day. The owners decorated the place which was a lovely touch and provided us with a generous welcome pack. The garden looked lovely, with BBQ and a sitting area however as it was raining and was cold so sadly we didn't get to enjoy it. The location was spot on, close to the beaches as well as a track up the mountains. We honestly loved our stay and coming from a busy London it was just nice to relax and recharge our batteries. We will most definitely be back again in the summer.

    The owner got in touch with us while we were on route. Their house keeper had informed them that the electric shower was not working. Also with all the rain there was a leak in the conservatory. They said they were getting an electrician and a maintenance person in. Kept us informed and both jobs were done before we arrived. The next day they sent us a gift of a very nice cream tea, for any problems the above had caused. No problem for us . A very nice surprise

The ground floor hosts a double bedroom with storage, while the first floor is home to two twin bedrooms, each with Smart TVs and yet more storage.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Barmouth 5 miles.

The pleasant village of Dyffryn Ardudwy quietly nestles between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. The unusual positioning of this charming village results in it having its own mild climate, as well as offering good local shops and pubs. The surrounding area has an exciting array of wildlife and birds including soaring buzzards. The small town of Harlech is just 4 miles away, dominated by its majestic 13th century castle which is a World Heritage Site, and the most impressive of all the castles 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. Nearby Barmouth offers an amazing Panorama Walk with breathtaking views and also a harbour from which you can enjoy 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.
