  • "Lovely, spacious, well appointed property."

    Our second visit as local attractions were closed last time, due to restrictions. Easy to get to both south and north Snowdonia, and vast beaches.

  • "Great location fantastic views close to town centre and beach."

    Plenty of shops pubs and nice cafes...Tim the owner was very friendly and helpful. When we go back to Barmouth we will book the Arnant because the house had everything you needed and more.

    Tim, the owner, was very helpful with a small problem we had on arrival but it was sorted quickly and efficiently. The little touches on arrival were thoughtful, sweets, wine, mince pies, tea & coffee and milk in the fridge. We had a great stay over new year and will definitely stay again; would highly recommend.

    The price was good as we had seen smaller accommodation in Barmouth for roughly the same price. An easy stroll into town (20 mins approx) The place was quiet due to time of year but we still manayto get food and drink. The ‘Captains table’ was a good place to eat and “Myrddrins’ bar sells some cracking craft beer ( Got his own micro brewery ) All in all a really good few days away.

  • "This was one of the best family holidays we have been on."

    The cottage was only 15 minute walk to the beach, which was stunning and mostly empty. You can walk into Barmouth in half hour if you wanted the fair and shops. The sea view from the cottage was stunning and the pictures don’t do it justice. It was clean and perfect for a family. Ideal location for Snowdon, the Mawddach trail, lots of great places to walk and the sea.

  • "Arnant is a modern(7years old) dormer bungalow of high quality."

    Built by Tim, the owner, who lives in adjacent property with his wife Tracey; the family was most helpful. The house book does draw attention to there being a large drop from the patio level to an adjacent small stream. The property is located 55m above sea level and the shortest walking route to the promenade is about 1/2mile. The harbour area is 1.1 mile so the conflicting walking times(5-10 and 6-8mins) are not realistic! We experienced one problem, the ground floor bathroom towel rail did not work - owner aware. Yes there is parking for 3 cars, but not side by side - one would be blocked in. We definitely recommend this property.

Everything was perfect...like home from home they have thought of Everything...and a lovely welcome gift awaited us..a bottle of red wine which was really nice, a plate of buttered Welsh cakes and a bag of chocolates...such a lovely touch!! Tim visited a couple of times to see if we were OK and needed anything at all..and he came to say goodbye he was really lovely. I would love to come back but its getting so booked up...and im not surprised.. youve got to get it booked ASAP as its going to be so popular to have holidays at home for a while I think....thanks so much Tim and Tracey and to sykes cottages for giving us a perfect home for the week.

    Tim and Tracey made us feel very welcome, and available if we needed help or advice to make our stay more enjoyable. The house was warm and comfortable.

We have already booked to return next year when hopefully more facilities will be open.

    The host Tim was outstanding, very welcoming and helpful. He came to make sure everything was ok and to see if we needed anything. The welcome gift was incredibly gratefully well received and needed after a very long journey. The home completely met and exceeded our expectations. The views at sunset time were breathtakingly beautiful. We all loved Barmouth. Its a beautiful little town. The beach is vast enough that you could be away from other people. We would definitely go back. I just wish it was closer.

  • "What an amazing holiday home in the perfect place, just a short walk into Barmouth and beautiful views."

    Six of us ages ranging from 75 to 9 have just got back from staying here a week and wow what a great time we have all had. Could not find a single fault, the place is immaculately clean and the beds were very comfy. There is everything you could possibly need in a holiday home. Tim and Tracey the owners are lovely people really welcoming and helpful. They really have thought of everything. We were slightly worried about one of the previous reviews that said the place was cold but we are baffled by these comments as we stayed over the new year period and we were all toasty warm the entire time. We will definitely be staying here again and have already recommended a stay to several of our friends.

  • "The coldest place that I have ever stopped in."

    Under floor heating with maximum temperature of 21 degrees .Not sure if it was working at all to be honest. Very hot at 25 degrees in conservatory one sunny day but down hill after that .Great view though and it must be a great place to stay in warmer weather. It is also crying out for a fridge freezer......plenty of room for one! Paid for 14 nights but went home after 5 nights. Owner Tim is a great chap and I should have contacted him about the heating but being a pensioner I knew my home was warmer.....even my car was warmer on the journey back. Having stopped in Berwyn in Talybont the week prior to Arnant, I had been spoiled with comfort of heat.

    I am sorry to hear that you felt the need to curtail your holiday short due to the heating. Had you contacted me before hand, I would have been more than happy to address this for you. I am pleased to say that there is no issue with the heating. Many thanks for your comments and hope to see you again! Property Owner

  • "Enjoyed our stay in Arnant so much that we didn't want to go home!"

    Weather was sunny & warm which was a bonus (who needs to go abroad!) Views from the sun room & top bedroom were fabulous. Very spacious rooms throughout the house. The owner Tim was lovely & very friendly. Came to check we were ok & had everything we needed. We took our own bikes with us but there is no storage at the property for them. We locked them to the railings at the back of the house & they were fine. First visit to Barmouth & we weren't disappointed. Lots to see & do (A week wasn't long enough). It has a lovely beach & this is where we sat & watched the stunning sunsets on an evening. Plenty of hills & mountains to explore with fabulous views. Mawddach trail across Barmouth bridge is good for biking. A flat route suitable for all ages & abilities. You can also walk this trail. We also explored Coed y Brenin forest which isn't too far from the holiday cottage. It has both walking & biking trails. The minortaur bike trail was so much fun we went round it more than once! Plenty of places to eat & drink. Would highly recommend this holiday cottage & Barmouth & will definitely return.

  • "The house is lovely, and is in a stunning location, the owners were helpful when anything was asked of them."

    There was only one thing that let this property down, and that was the mattress on the bed in the main bedroom, the room and its views are amazing, but the old style mattress with its springs that can be felt through the sheet, and the fact that it was sloping on both sides, we felt it should have a more modern one on it, one that doesn't bounce the other person around, but this was it's only fault. I certainly would recommend it, it has everything you need. One thing we would recommend though, take some provisions, the Co-op is very expensive even for breakfast basics.

    Went with our 98 year old auntie and she was able to have a ground floor bedroom with her own bathroom which was really good for her to have her own bit of independence. Bedroom was lovely with the patio doors which we never shut during the night due to the very hot weather, so it kept us nice and cool to sleep . Loved the setting and the views were lovely out to sea and the conservatory was nice to sit and relax and watch the beautiful sunset s . We found everything we needed and we had a welcome pack of goodies which was most appreciated. House was spotless couldn’t fault anything about it , well apart from the fact that we had to leave it !

    The conservatory is an added feature with true views over the sea. There is adequate car parking and the walk to the town is approx 20 mins downhill. Barmouth is a well presented town with lots of space and eateries. On the web site it features a number of food places to go to but doesn't mention the Ty Craig hotel close by. This wasn't recommended to us but we went to give it a try and have to say it was excellent both for food and attention. We went back and it was equally welcoming the views from the restaurant over the sea were an added bonus. We were able to travel around covering the Snowdonia area fully, we found the Ffestiniog steam railway brilliant, the !st class carriage for an extra £7 each way really worth it. The scenery was beautiful and the coastal area around Aberdyfi very relaxing.
