    The cottage was clean and warm. The beds were so soft! The rooms were all a really decent size, we had everything we needed and there were even extra blankets. The landlady was lovely and we all had a brilliant time. The cottage was really easy to find and had some amazing views. We'd definitely go again

    Situated in the middle of the countryside, with snowytop mountains as your backdrop. Evenings spent in front of the logfire after days of walking the local foothills. The cottage was peaceful and quiet, just what we needed. We would definitely like to come back and stay for longer - a week wasn’t long enough!

    Great location with views and fabulous hikes on the doorstep. Loved the log burner in the evening after being out all day. The layout was different to expected: the kitchen is in the lower part of the building down a few steps. Only thing was single bed very bouncy, but that’s probably my preference!

  • "This was one of the nicest cottages we've stayed in, and we've done about 40 with Sykes."

    , over last 5 years. One important drawback was it was extremely cold on arrival. Heating not set to come on till 4.00pm. It is a very large cottage and does not get very warm. The kitchen, which is big with vaulted ceiling was gorgeous but was too cold to eat in, only one radiator. Heating set by owner to go off at 10.00 am. Bk on 4.00pm till 9.00. We asked for heating to be on an extra hour which was happily done by owner. I am fully aware the building is very old but it has been modernised, but not enough well positioned radiators. Weather was horrendous first few days with storm Isha and Jocelyn. Consequently we stayed in more than would have liked. Log fire in lounge certainly helped and a small portable heater in kitchen helped. Plenty of throws and hot water bottles supplied. Beds very comfortable and settees also comfy. Did not use outside space due to weather. Walks from cottage well signposted. On a personal note we would rather have paid more and had option of putting heating on.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tegid Cottage. We were greeted by owner Stephanie on our arrival, who was really friendly and welcoming. The cottage itself was beautiful, with views of the snow covered mountains. The lounge was very spacious with lovely deep chairs and a sofa. The addition of the log burner made it that extra bit more cosy on the winter evenings. The kitchen again was very spacious, equipped with everything you will need for the duration of your stay. The main bedroom was a good size, with plenty of storage, and the bed was super comfy and toasty warm. We don't usually sleep very well in an unfamiliar bed, but this wasn't the case in the cottage. We would have happily taken the bed home with us it was that comfy. The second bedroom we only used to store our photography equipment in, so we can't comment on comfort. The bathroom is the smallest room in the cottage. We found that it was best to have a bath, as the shower proved a little awkward to use due to the sloping ceiling and exposed beams. The water was always piping hot though, which was perfect for our bubble baths. We absolutely loved the Donkeys, Lily & Gruffalo, who live in the Paddock behind the cottage. We treated them to a couple of carrots each in the mornings, and a couple of ginger biscuits and a cuddle each before bed. We will definitely stay at the cottage again, and will recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the area. Thanks Stephanie, see you again next time. Stuart & Kelly.

    I've lost count of how many times I have returned, but this was somewhere around my tenth stay in this lovely cottage - that probably speaks for itself!. Can't think of a better way to spend Christmas than to sit by the log burner in the cosy lounge watching the wind and rain over the hills, with a Donkey looking in over the back fence! 10/10

  • "Tegid Cottage is situated in a very rural and quiet setting, surrounded by the hills."

    Despite its remote location it is very easy to find. It is approx 7 minutes away from Bala where you can find a Co-Op and Spar for grocery shopping. The cottage is truly a gem and feels like a home. It has a modern kitchen with ample supplies, a lovely cosy living room with 3 sofas and open fire place. It has loads of board games and books. On the first floor there’s 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds and lots of storage space to put away clothes. The bathroom is equipped with a bath and shower head, which is powerful. Our children had lots of fun with the trampoline in the garden and they loved the two donkeys next to the cottage who they named Sam and Thomas! It’s an excellent location to explore Snowdonia National Park. Most attractions are within a 45 min drive. The weather was not great during our stay and it got quite cold in the mornings and evenings, but after contacting the owner, they put the heating on without any trouble. We would highly recommend Tegid Cottage for friends, people who seek peace and quiet or families with young children like us. Our dog was also most welcome. Book this place if you can, I imagine it is very popular!

Being dog friendly was perfect for us, and we felt at home the minute we left the country road and made our way down the drive to these beautiful cottages. Location is perfect with many attractions within an hours drive and as near as a 10 minute drive to lake tegid and the lovely Market town of Bala.

We have now addressed the issue with the tap and also tried to make the sofa's more comfortable, however we have not had any complaints in regards to them being uncomfortable before. With regards to the contact by phone, yes we live across the road but due to us still being in a pandemic and us having a young family we try to limit contact with our guests in order to keep our family safe.

The cottage and area are amazing and it will be a holiday to remember. The cottage lacked in cleanliness however. Cobwebs all over lighshades, dust everywhere and dog chewed treat left under bed from previous guests which our dogs smelt out immediately. Lightbulbs out everywhere so lacked light. And watermarks over mirror and taps in bathroom upon arrival. Would be ideal to be able to turn heating on/off as when we stayed in the cottage during the day due to rain it was cold in house, except living room with log burner.

    If I was to nit pick at anything, then I would say that the cottage is suited for a couple or young family, but would not be suitable for 4 adults as the second bedroom is very small, and even though there is a shower over the bath, it cannot be used as a shower due to the roof space. Also, some people may struggle witht he internet connection as we were only able to get a 300kbps at best, but that suited us fine as we wanted to get away from it all.
