  • "A very well appointed cottage, comfortable, excellent location with large enclosed garden for the 2 dogs."

    Highly recommended.

  • "This property was an absolute delight to stay in."

    In particular the views from the kitchen at sunset looking out over the sea with the mountains backdropped behind was breath taking. The garden is perfect for the dog, the cottage itself is charming. Great location for planning day trips along the coast or into Snowdonia. Worth mentioning that the internet was almost non-functioning so be sure to have your own 4G if that is important to you. Impossible for that to detract from such a wonderful location and stay.

    Thank you for your feedback, and we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The owner has confirmed that the internet connection is working fine, and the current guests have confirmed that there are no issues, however we are sorry if you experienced any issues. Thank you again for your comments. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Tyddyn, lovely cottage with an enclosed garden for the dogs."

    Beautiful stretch of sandy beach within walking distance. Close enough to Anglesey and Snowdon. It certainly ticked all our boxes. The wine and cake was a welcoming touch. We would definitely book again.

  • "We have had a lovely stay and thank the owners for making the house so clean and comfortable."

    The wine and home made cake were a lovely gesture. The cottage is in a great location with several beautiful beaches on your doorstep, great for walking the dogs on at this time of year. You also have Snowdonia National Park to venture around so the best of both Worlds. Recommend the beach at sunset for the magnificent views. The house is immaculate with an enclosed garden, so we felt safe letting our dogs roam outside. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and gadgets. There is a kitchen table and a more formal dining area. The living room is comfortable and there is wi-fi. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 doubles and 2 singles and a bathroom. All in all a great, relaxing and very peaceful stay with very helpful owners.

    Spacious enclosed garden for the dog to run around, such a quiet and peaceful stay only a short drive to get to Barmouth. Would definitely look to book again in the future. Thank you

  • "The house was spotlessly clean and facilities very good."

    A very delicious home made fruit cake and bottle of wine was a lovely gesture. Beautiful area, quiet and very relaxing.Garden is safe for dogs. Very friendy owners . Our only concern for our family was we had an elderly relative and the stairs are very steep which isnt in the description. I dont think the house is suitable for the elderly or anyone with mobility difficulties. Also shower and bath difficult. Would benefit from a walk in shower cubicle.

    The garden is perfect for our dogs as they thoroughly enjoy playing and we feel confident knowing that it is secure for them. A wonderful relaxing week- thank you Mrs Evans for your hospitality.

  • "It was advertised as having a pub within a 2 minute walk which, as our party includes a disabled person who can't walk far, was one of the main reasons for booking this property."

    However, this pub was permanently closed and has been for many months but I notice that the property information has not changed. However, the cottage was lovely.

  • "Beautiful property with stunning views, we had a great time and would definitely return."

    The beach is a lovely walk away about 30 to 40 minutes depending on your pace, or you can just drive 5 mins to Llanddwywe and take the turning down to the Dyffryn caravan site/ Benar beach where there is a car park for £3 for the day and some free roadside parking, and also public toilets. The beaches run along the whole coastline, so plenty of space, and dogs are allowed. Just a few small things about the property; There was no information on local things to do or directions on how to get to the beach, which would of been helpful. The garden is nice and secure for dogs however if you have a large dog who likes to jump they could jump the back wall, ours did! The curtains in bedroom are not black out or thick enough to block out any light so if you like a lie in you may struggle. It would be great to have a few more dishwasher tablets and toilet rolls, so it might be best to pack a few extra. Overall a great, clean property with amazing views in a fabulous location. There are plenty of amazing walks just a short drive away, and loads of great beaches. We loved our stay in Dyffryn Ardudwy and its surrounding area.

  • "This cottage and garden really were pet safe."

    We had a marvellous rest in the peace and quiet but only a short distance to the beach for the dogs to run and play. Views were breathtaking especially after over a year of shielding. Hope to be going back soon. Many, many thanks Mr Mrs Evans

  • "We felt right at home as soon as we arrived with a warm welcome from the owners."

    Everything you could possibly need was provided and the beds were so comfy together with the private and secluded garden which was so lovely to sit and relax in with the dog able to run around with no fear of escaping. How nice to wake up and see the farm animals in the fields and see them close up through the kitchen window . The position of the farmhouse is ideal with Barmouth and Harlech so close by car and a shop in walking distance with a superb butchers that was so handy when spending a day indoors. All in all we had a wonderful relaxing time and would definitely recommend to family and friends.

  • "When we arrived at Tyddyn the cottage was welcoming, clean and comfy with plenty of space."

    The kitchen is spacious and well equipped and the stable door from there out into the garden was a great access and egress for our two dogs. The garden was ideal for us enclosed and safe for the dogs to explore. The garden furniture was great especially the bench by the backdoor which was a real sun trap. There was plenty of space upstairs all the bedrooms nicely decorated clean and bright. As there was only two of us so we used the bedroom over the kitchen which had fantastic views towards the beach and lots of sunlight. There is an easy walk to the beach which is so expansive and beautiful and plenty of hill walks above Harlech and Nantcol. All in all an excellent cottage would recommend.

    Plenty of room for my two dogs who also loved the garden space. Loved seeing the sea view every morning and having the private and quiet space. We loved staying at Tyddyn and hope to stay there again. It was made very clean and tidy for us. We had everything we needed there.

  • "The cottage was beautiful and in a lovely setting with expansive views to the sea."

    It was clean and had plenty of facilities, especially in the kitchen, most of which we didn't use, but nice to know they were there if we had wanted to. It was a 20 minute walk to the local beach or 5 minutes in the car. The local railway station was only a 10 minute walk away. Couldn't have suited us better as there is so much to see around the area and the train rides were great, along the sea's edge. We had a fantastic week. The only drawback for us was that there was only one toilet, which was in the bathroom, upstairs, so it was difficult at times with 4 adults and 2 children, but, by the end of the week, we had some sort of routine!!!!! Would strongly recommend the cottage and were impressed by Sykes Cottages Ltd, for their communications and the handling of the holiday booking.

    Also,there is only one toilet and it's quite inconvenient as it's in the bathroom so if someone's in there you have to wait.There is room for an ensuite or downstairs wc and I did mention this to the owners last year.Also I mentioned that the oven door didntclose properly and it still doesn't. The soft furnishings need replacing as the cushions are like wafers as they were last year and so are the pillows.Also the bathroom mats are worn and tatty.The house is lovely and is peaceful and yet near to amenities. We love it but will be looking for somewhere with downstairs facilities.Tyddyn now has a resurfaced drive which is great but a little more needs spending inside.
