  • "We had a lovely stay."

    2nd time visiting and still blown away by the location and views just stepping out the door. Chalet is comfortable and well equipped and feels like a real holiday home.

  • "This chalet is in a fantastic location and is of a very high standard."

    2 doubles and a bunk bed. It has one of the best stocked kitchen that we have ever stayed in! The beds are comfortable, all very clean and towels/bedding all perfect. I would highly recommend this property! Thanks for a lovely Easter weekend in the Chalet :-)

  • "We were very impressed with Chalet 2, for our first time using Sykes, everything you could possibly need on arrival was there, with good instructions and local recommendations."

    Our only suggestion would be to help finding Chalet 2, if folk are using the what3words app on their phones it would take them straight to the chalet (assuming they still have a signal!), we arrived later than we’d hoped to on the Friday, and it was a little challenging to find in the dark! I used the app whilst there and in the front room the 3 words were: restriction.lollipop.reference . Once again we had a fantastic weekend, and are planning a return visit next year

  • "We had a very happy time in the chalet very comfortable and cosy with the log burner lit, good shower and comfy bed and sofas, perhaps a rug in the bedroom would be nice and a blind at the kitchen window to help the cosy feel."

    We had a great time and will return. Thank you

  • "Great stay, the sofas and beds were amazingly comfortable and setting is just stunning."

    Had a great few days exploring the area and beyond. This was a convenient and cosy base to have and a nice place to chill with the tired dogs in the evenings after long days. Shower and kitchen facilities were good and some nice little touches from the owners. Will come back!

  • "Lovely secluded row of chalets in a woodland setting."

    Lots of wildlife despite the occasional low flying jets. Chalet has everything but a dishwasher. The bedrooms are small but very comfortable. Lovely local walks and a friendly community. Don’t miss Y Llew Coch and the cafe both a short walk to the village away. Lily the dog had a marvellous time.

  • "No proper provision for clothing."

    No Wardrobes or adequate drawers, no hangers for the rail fixed to the wall which we assume was for our clothes. We do not expect to have to live out of a suitcase. No oven dishes, no dishes for microwave, which we found very limiting. Lighting in the lounge area is insufficient. Heating was not set for our stay - we had to read the manual to turn it on. The Hot water was totally inadequate, pressure was very low except in the bath. We had to keep turning the BOOST button for a supply of hot water. No instructions were available for the setting of the controller. Instructions for the wifi were "See Router," which was securely fastened to the wall, the password etc. was on the back of the router which was very difficult to take off the wall. We did discover a card with the password etc. in a drawer later. The washbasin in the bathroom was much too small to be practical, and adequate only for washing your hands and cleaning teeth. The window in the Bunkbed room would not close. A child could lean against it whilst climbing the ladder and the window being insecure would open and the child fall out. As well as a security issue. The garden is definitely NOT safe for children there being an unfenced, almost sheer drop to the river below at the rear of the cabin.. Whilst this is mentioned in the information pack clients should be made aware of this before booking. Also mentioned in the info pack is a warning about the ramp. However this does require immediate attention as one of our party fell foul of the drop and the sharp edge gashing the leg. The travel directions supplied were totally lacking. We spoke to your agent who agreed, and said she would contact the owner and call back with fuller directions. No return call! The website has a link to Google Maps, which if followed leads to to the wrong road altogether. I note that Sykes have added a What Three Words to the directions on line. Had I not spent considerable time using OS Maps and Google maps, we could have found ourselves at a total loss. Whilst it is obvious that the cabin is in process of being renovated, we are of the opinion (judging against other properties we have stayed in from Sykes) the hire price is much too high. It is also worth mentioning in the cabin information the the cabin lies in the MACH LOOP, and extremely low and loud jets fly directly overhead, which at times causes the cabn to shake!
