The only potential negative was trying to find the light switches especially the one in the dining room which is on the patio door..... Reviewed by AlanOct 2021 "The house was amazing, all the facilities we needed and we enjoyed our stay." Check out at 9 however was inconvenient. We had young children with us and it meant an early start to get everything packed away and all of the requirements sorted we were asked to do. Made for a stressed end to a relaxing holiday Reviewed by EmmaOct 2021 "Superb cottage, our fourth visit." Weather was terrible, but enjoyed our stay. One bonus was that the village pub opened again on our arrival after being shut for 2 years! One minor niggling comment, the house vacuum cleaner was terrible, needed the strength of an ox to push it forwards. Reviewed by BrianOct 2021 "Lovely area, lots of walks on the doorstep."

We had a great time in a beautiful setting but very disappointed that we couldn’t get the hot water to work despite following the instructions Reviewed by MarkAug 2021 "Lovely lovely cottage - great location - was really impressed with the cleanliness and effort made during these difficult times." Reviewed by MichelleOct 2020 "Lovely, characterful, well equipped cottage in a quiet location with lots of doggy walks from its front door." When something went awry it was dealt with quickly and cheerfully. Nearby pub is excellent. Reviewed by AlastairNov 2019 "Cottage is lovely cosy and very well equipped with all quality goods." Would definitely recommend. The cottage itself, we found hard to find as 1, we were expecting a lone property on it's own not in a group of 3 and our Sat Nav took us up a lane that's not really suitable for vehicles.

The cottage itself, we found hard to find as 1, we were expecting a lone property on it's own not in a group of 3 and our Sat Nav took us up a lane that's not really suitable for vehicles. So to make it easier for future holiday makers using a sat nav. When in the village and it tells you to turn left up an unrestricted road you'll see a group of cottages to your left.. turn left but go down the second driveway through a large iron gate...this take you to the cottage and its large courtyard/driveway.. Things I'd recommend that are within walking distance is the Tallylyn railway trip to Tywyn and the Railway Public house which serves amazing food .. The only negative about the location is there is no local shop. So if you run out of supplies you'll need to travel a good few miles to a Coop or Morrisons.

Plus having an abundance of walks, activities and sights from the doorstep is awesome. It really would be difficult to find any faults at all. Thank you to Sykes Cottages and the cottage owners for our wonderful stay.

Continue reading Either no hot water or scolding hot in one shower and very little pressure in the other. This for a property advertised for 6 people, bearing in mind we were only a party of 3 adults, let this property down. In addition to the water facilities there is an extremely strong odour of damp upstairs in the bedrooms and of wet dogs in the main lounge. We lit a fire on Sunday to try and overcome. Had the local pub in the village not been so welcoming and friendly with excellent food we would have spent more time in the property thereby enjoying our experience less. Well done to all the staff at The Railway Inn. Reviewed by RobertMay 2019 "Hendre house barn is a beautiful cottage in a superb location." The cottage had everything (and more) than we could have hoped for and we will definitely be back to this lovely barn conversion which has a great rustic feel is in a fantastic location and so much thought and effort has gone into this quirky cottage you feel like it is a proper home from home Reviewed by MichelleMay 2019 "Beautiful cottage in a lovely location, food in local Pub exceeded expectations" Reviewed by DeborahMar 2019 "Despite suffering the worse of Storm Gareth and unseasonal cold, we had a very comfortable holiday at this property."

Wifi was excellent and although we lost TV signal from time to time, this was to be expected given the diabolical weather conditions. The bedrooms were comfortable and the showers adequate. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with everything we needed. There was plenty of comfortable seating in the sitting room. The big plus for this property was the garden and courtyard surrounding it which were secure and very dog friendly and would be a lovely place to sit in good weather. There was fantastic walking to be had right on the doorstep and the local village pub served excellent food and was welcoming and friendly. My only reservations are that if you don't like spiral staircases (and I don't) that could be problematic. As it was only my daughter and myself, we could avail ourselves of the other two bedrooms - but it could be an issue for some people. Also, I did worry at times about the cream carpet and my muddy dog. The weather was terrible and although I did my very best to clean her off, it didn't seem a very practical floor covering and I would rather have not had the stress! I love this area of Wales and this village in particular and I would definitely book this property when we visit again. Reviewed by JanetMar 2019 "Great holiday home it literaly had everything." Great location for walking. Local pub serves good food at a great price. Only grumble was there was not enough wood for a cosy fire each night, which is something I look forward to after a days walking when the weather is wet and windy.
