  • "Nice, clean and tidy."

    Lovely views and well situated as a base for local touring and walking.

  • "A lovely little cottage in a beautiful location."

    Amenities within a minute’s walk just up the (very steep!) hill, but the whole of Snowdonia within easy reach. And a stunning view from the deck too. Highly recommended!!!

  • "The property was clean and comfortable, but quite compact and I would say perfect for a couple but the comments in the visitors book would seem to suggest that it is very popular with families."

    The prior posts about the lack of pillows are still valid, we were able to take the ones from the other bedroom. Blessed with fantastic weather we made full use of the deck and it's fabulous views.

    The premises offer not much space but it is sufficent for 4 persons. The kitchen is equipped with all you need for daily life. The terrace offers a really stunning view to the mountains nearby.

    Had a fantastic week. The owner is friendly and approachable and made sure our stay was a comfortable one. Just one suggestion: maybe allow two pillows per person. We will be back!

    The cottage was everything we needed and the location was perfect - pub, shop, the beach and an amazing cheese shop all in walking distance. We really didn’t want to come home! Really lovely and cosy place to stay with amazing views of Snowdonia and the castle. We met the lovely owners and their dog Floyd, who were really helpful with suggestions on the local area. It was our first time to Wales and it did not disappoint!

  • "The cottage is lovely with stunning views which were a joy to look at each morning."

    It's location so close to the castle and on the steepest Street was unique and was also very convenient for exploring Snowdonia. The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The owner was friendly and approachable giving detailed assistance prior to check -in.

  • "We had a fabulous week in Snowdon View and the surrounding area and day trips."

    The views from the cottage were amazing and thr children loved being so close to such a historic castle. The only thing I think could be improved is the pillows in main bedroom. Had to fold it over all week to make it thicker. Two pillows each in main bedroom would make it the next level of comfort. Lovely touch with some tea and coffee sachets and biscuits. :) They were opened quickly after a very long drive! Children were sad to come home.

    Hi Thank you for the feedback regarding the pillows. I will include two sets of pillows in the double bedroom. Great idea. Thanks for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous week in a lovely cosy cottage with magnificent views and a lovely decking area."

    Everything was comfortable and very clean. However I think it should be noted in your blurb that the cottage is situated on the 2nd steepest road in the world. We are both nearly 80 and I think if people want to rent this they should be asked about age, fitness etc. before booking. We are both fit and had no trouble walking up the road but there is no way we would have walked down. We would go back there again without hesitation and I can see that it might put some people off but I feel they should be told about the steepness. My husband drove down the hill but I would have had trouble..

    Thank you for your feedback. I agree that this should be included in the cottage information when booking and will contact Sykes to arrange this. I'm glad it did not deter your stay. Property Owner

    The pillows are so flat and only one each bed - never seen pillows that flat before - extra ones available if needed would be nice Nothing available to clean the fireplace out either

    It was comfortable and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. It was an ideal base for us to explore the area and, although the weather was variable during the week, there was plenty to do.

    Couldn't be more central. Perhaps needs a little TLC. Recommend a trip to the Old Victoria in nearby Llanbedr for excellent meals.

    Hi Nigel Thank you for your feedback. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are decorating Snowdon View at the end of January. It will be freshly painted throughout with new flooring throughout also. We are also having the bathroom re tiled. This was all supposed to happen last year but the Welsh lockdown prevented us. I hope to welcome you back some time. Kind regards Alison Jones Property Owner

  • "The owners have got this one perfect."

    Great views of Harlech, the castle and Snowdonia, mixed with a fab garden, plenty of outdoor space and the steepest road in the world! Conquer that and you have a train station with links to plenty of towns, or the amazing beach is just a walk away. Local food in the small village is great, including fresh bread, chinese and indian. The house has everything thought of including for the kids. Children will find guides for walks, games, toys and even some bits for the bath. We had the extras a family needs like kids kitchenware, bubble bath, milk and washing up bits, those things that just make it easy to relax. The house has a good stock of menus, books and leaflets so you can plan your whole week with the free wifi whilst making the most of reading each night. There was even sky and amazon tv! Comfy beds with awesome views. There is a play park close by and plenty to do whatever the weather!

    It is located on the steepest hill in the town, possibly the steepest street in the world, so be aware you need to be reasonably able to walk from the cottage even to the town centre. We were surprised no bleach was left to clean the toilet.

    Brilliant location. The cottage was just right for our size family. The kids had a fab time, having the swimming pool close by in Harlech was a real bonus on wetter days. Having said that there are plenty of sheltered walks through beautiful woodland locally, and the sand dunes are all the more atmospheric in the storms!
