    Everything was well presented. On original advert it stated garden was secure however this wasn’t the case as our dog could let around and out the gate. Rooms were spacious and the log burner heated the whole downstairs. Owners were really polite.

  • "It was such a lovely cottage and garden with plenty of room for dogs to explore and us to enjoy."

    It was welcoming and so peaceful. House sparrows are adorable. You can hear owls at night too. we saw red kites, a snake (not at the cottage ) Scenery is gorgeous. Wildlife abundant. Most things are on the doorstep that you need. Would encourage other guests to go explore. Would definitely recommend. It was just what we needed from a holiday, our Welsh pronunciation not great but locals were happy to help out. We had some great food too. Dogs were welcomed too. All round fabulous

    Thanks so much for your kind words they are much appreciated. So pleased that you had an enjoyable holiday. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful holiday cottage in truly idyllic surroundings."

    The view from the garden was breathtaking. Short drive to the dog friendly beach at Tywyn, which our dogs adored. Very quiet, there were many days when we found we had the beach all to ourselves which was great. Very friendly local butcher. Well stocked kitchen. The only drawback/area for improvement we can suggest, mattresses on the beds weren't very comfortable, maybe consider replacing these? Otherwise, 5 stars, 10 out 10, would definately recommend to others

    Thank you so much for your kind words they are really much appreciated. So pleased that you had an enjoyable holiday. Property Owner

  • "This was a wonderful weekend away in a beautiful part of the World."

    From the outset the booking process was easy and the email we received with directions and details of how to access the cottage were also very clear. The cottage itself was stunning and has been refurbished to a very high standard, whilst keeping the wonderful original elements. It was incredibly quiet in the complex and we saw one person once all weekend. Our two teens and pooch also enjoyed the space and wonderful walks. It was very rural but within easy reach of Bryncrug and Tywyn, which for us as visiting relatives in Tywyn made it most convenient. We will definitely be returning!

  • "Lovely cottage with lots of space and fantastic views."

    It's situated along a single track dead end road so it's very quiet there but only a mile to Bryncrug and 7 minutes drive to Tywyn so not so remote as to be isolated. Booking through Skykes was not to my liking as it was all done online with no personal human contact at any point. The only person we did see was the lady who looks after the cottages and that was on our last day 10 minutes before we left to drive home.

    Many thanks for your kind comments. Property Owner

We will definitely be back for longer next time.

    A short drive from civilisation but that was part of it's appeal - a great base for mid-wales generally and the south side of Snowdonia with great estuaries & beaches within a 10 minute drive. Equally perfect for a "do nothing" break in the midst of stunning natural beauty and silence. We will be back for sure.

    Clean with most of the usual mod-cons. Could do with a few more bits in the kitchen and some of the roasting dishes were a bit rusty. Other than that no issues. Wifi doesn't really work - would be better to advertise without wifi. Host was really helpful and was very welcoming. A perfect location to access Snowdonia and also the beach. Look forward to retuning.

  • "I think it was expensive."

    Covid rules require late arrival and early departure so the first and last days are not really holiday. We understand ours was a late booking in peak time but we felt £800 for effectively three days holiday was expensive. We were also a little surprised not to get some type of welcome pack - most places have some milk, maybe some wine and some biscuits or welshcakes.

About the location


Aberdovey 4 miles; Dolgellau 20 miles.

The tranquil town of Tywyn lies on the sweep of Cardigan Bay, perched on the end of the imposing Cader Idris mountain range where the landscape tumbles into the sea on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. The promenade and town are all on one level, ideal for that gentle evening stroll by the clear blue water of the Bay. Shopping in Tywyn is a pleasure, with a regular open-air market, and local shops offering a wide range of local produce and gifts. The proximity to mountains and sea means the town also offers a wide variety of activities, from mountaineering to surfing, and the area offers leisurely rambles through the beautiful countryside. Slightly further afield lie the towns of Dolgellau and Aberdovey (with its golf course), while attractions such as Harlech Castle, Llanfair Slate Caverns and the Talyllyn Railway, together with the sandy beaches of the Cambrian coast make this an ideal location for a relaxing break.
