Special thanks to Tim the owner for making us welcome.

"Lovely property with great views of Barmouth beach."
The property is comfortable and clean and a perfect base to explore Barmouth and the surrounding area.
"We had a wonderful week's stay at Arnant with my son, his partner & their 2 sons."
The accommodation was perfect for us, we had a a bedroom & bathroom on the ground floor & the family used the 1st floor bedrooms, shower room & private sun terrace off the master bedroom. The lounge & dining room were spacious & the conservatory was an added bonus with beautiful panoramic views. The kitchen was well equipped & we were given a complimentary bottle of wine & some delicious lemon biscuits & tea & milk on arrival, which was very much appreciated! It was lovely to meet Tim, the owner & his 2 dogs & he was very friendly & suggested places to eat & visit.
"The house is fabulous really spacious very cleanand lovely views to the sea ..."

"A beautiful (more than) home from home."
Everything you would need. Amazing views and well appointed. Owner Tim was on hand uf needed and recommendations, we had a fantastic meal on our last night thanks to him. All in all we couldnt have asked or expected a better place to stay. Definately be back.
"A superb property."
The house is built to a very high standard. Fixtures and fittings were excellent. If I was to be " picky " a couple of chairs to relax in on the patio would be of benefit also the walk into town is more like 20 minutes. The whole area around Barmouth is stunning and well worth exploring.
"Beautiful cottage set in a stunning area."
Nice welcome package upon arrival and owners are very friendly. Views of the sea from the balcony upstairs are amazing. Exactly as advertised. Well stocked kitchen and overall very comfortable and nicely decorated home away from home. Would highly recommend.
"Superb accommodation, one of the best Sykes properties we have stayed in, lovely views of the bay, all made for a nice restful short break."
Thank you so much for your lovely review, hopefully see you again. Regards Tracey and Tim x Property Owner

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Hopefully see you again soon. Regards Tracey and Tim x Property Owner
"Fantastic holiday home."
Very well maintained, Warm & comfy beds, high standard of furnishings. Tim & Tracey made us feel very welcome with a bottle of wine, chocolates & Welsh tea cakes. Much appreciated. We would certainly return to this property.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was such a pleasure to have you. We hope to see you again some day. Take care. Regards from Tracey and Tim x Property Owner
"A lovely house with amazing views from every window."
Welcome pack and welsh cakes very much appreciated. The house is an excellent base to explore not just Barmouth but North Wales. Host Tim was extremely helpful. Would highly recommend this property.
"Fabulous location - nice welcome pack."
It is a beautifully thought out property- very convenient for the beach and had everything we needed - it was a five star stay. Only very slight point is the capacity of the fridge which is on the small size. Thank you for providing a lovely place to stay
"The property was expensive to rent no garden if you had children also no fridge freezer in the kitchen a small worktop freezer in the utility room and small fridge not suitable for a party of six."
The kitchen could have been cleaner bin dirty and fridge ,needs updating .
Perfect location. Very helpful owners.Brilliant weather. We could not have asked for anything more.Our second stay at Arnant.The best place to stay for a family holiday.Perfect.
"Superb location, overlooking coastal views."
Parking aplenty, and rooms are much larger than imagined. Lovely and clean, with all utensils required to have a great seaside break. Will definitely use again when in area. Walking distance to town, shortcut to beach via footpaths. Slight incline on return, but we managed without issue. Friendly owner on hand if required. Lovely conservatory, balcony and outside space for the good weather.
"Arnant is a lovely accommodation, everything you could ask for on a relaxing vacation."
The view from the conservatory and master bedroom are superb, with the added bonus of a sunny balcony. Excellent hosts who want you to enjoy your stay, round things off.
"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.
"Fantastic property, everything you could think of and more."
We was made very welcome and the views was out of this world. Tim's a top bloke. We stayed from the 13th to the 17th of Feb. We will be back.
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely holiday home."
A high standard of cleanliness so a big thank you to Corrine the cleaner.. A really well equipped kitchen with a lovely sea view and the conservatory a bonus . Lovely to chat with Tim the owner and his adorable dogs. Weiil situated property to explore the surrounding area of natural beauty. We have noted phone.numbers so hope we or family will visit again in the future. Kind regards Barbara & Alan Brown
"An extremely well presented property that was exactly how the details portrayed it."
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 property was lovely and the owners were friendly and nice."
"An excellent holiday property, of high quality and one of the best we've stayed in."
"Really enjoyed our stay, the place is huge and really Comfy, a really lovely touch was the wine and Welsh cakes on arrival much appreciated."
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.
"We had a wonderful stay at Arnant, great views and a well presented property."
Very clean, warm and welcoming.
"Tim, the owner, made us feel very welcome."
This holiday home is fairly new has high quality furniture and everything you could want or need, excellent views, good beds, warm, all the facilities in the kitchen, clean and spacious. Would definitely recommend, oh wait, scratch that! If everyone goes we won’t be able to make a return booking lol
"Wonderful place, is sited in a perfect position with outstanding views."
We had the perfect time. Tracey and Tim are outstanding people,we would go back just for their company. Nothing negative to say. Loved it.
"Tim and Tracey who own the property made us feel really welcome and are genuinely friendly."
The property was to a very high standard with magnificent views over Barmouth. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this wonderful property.
"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.
"The cottage was excellent and Tim, the owner, is very friendly and helpful."
Barmouth is a lovely place and there are so many great places to visit around the area.
"It was a beautiful home."
..views outstanding!! 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.
"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.
"Lovely, well appointed, spacious house with beautiful views of the estuary and sea."
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 enjoyed the spacious beaches in the local area and there are some spectacular walks locally and in Snowdonia . We have already booked to return next year when hopefully more facilities will be open.
"Such a lovely place to stay."
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.
"Everything exceeded our expectations."
Arnant really is 5star. Tim and Tracy had even left us treats on our arrival. Tim popped in to make sure we were happy with everything. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property to anyone who wanted a brilliant experience in Barmouth.
"Lovely holiday home, warm, cosy and modern."
Everything you needed for a comfortable and pleasant stay....highly recommended !
"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
"The cottage was perfect for us, we had a relaxing week."
Arnant is an excellent base, well equipped and comfy. The owners Tim & Tracey were most welcoming and able to give us lots of local knowledge. We hope to return soon. Diolch.
"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.
"Lovely owners, who were very helpful & informative without being intrusive."
Lovely home in beautiful surroundings.
"A beautiful holiday home could not find fault with anything."
Met the owner who explained the the workings of the house and he also gave us some useful info about the surrounding area. A beautiful holiday home we did not want to leave.
"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.
"Arnant is in an amazing setting, close by to all amenities."
Owner is friendly and helpful. Fantastic week
"After about a 20min walk into Barmouth town center the uphill walk back could be a little strenuous for older people."
We used the accommodation as a base from which to cycle the Mawddach Trail as it's location served well for anyone cycling/ walking this trail.
"The holiday home was amazing, beautiful and very clean."
Extremely happy with our stay & would definitely return every year for the foreseeable future. Only thing needed is new mattresses on the beds (all beds) as it feels like you are lying on bare springs & black out / darker curtains in the upstairs bedrooms.
"Very clean comfortable house."
Friendly owner. Excellent location with good views. Looks good in the photos, but even better when you step through the door! Normally after a week, we begin to get bored, but this was different, we did not want to leave the place.
"We enjoyed a wonderful week in Arnant."
We found the house very comfortable and in a fantastic position - the sea views were amazing. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We found lots of things to do in the area with two children. We especially enjoyed Bounce Below and hiring bikes at Coed y Brenin to cycle to the waterfalls. We were very lucky to have some great weather so enjoyed time on the beach as well. We hope to return to Arnant in the future.
"Good location with lovely views of Barmouth."
Close to the town and beach. Somewhere you would want to go back to.
"The accomodation was fantastic."
It is modern and finished to a high specification. We booked the same cottage in 2017 and were pleased that the high standard had been maintained. The owners Tim and Tracey are very personable and welcoming. We will certainly return and recommend the cottage to our friends and family.
"Would be useful to have a larger freezer."
Great location for watching the Sunset, a enjoyable walk to the beach though a nature reserve.
"Great destination for our Christmas holiday."
Cottage was decorated for Christmas. Comfortable, cosy & and clean. Fantastic views and a short walk to the beach. A few more knives in the cutlery draw wouldn’t go a miss & oven, fridge are a little bit small but that’s me being very picky! We would definitely stay here again.
"Fantastic property more like 6 star than 5, everything exceeded what we expected ..."
Fantastic property more like 6 star than 5, everything exceeded what we expected will book again, best property in Barmouth
"Really beautiful house just one small point bathroom necessities were a minimum ..."
Really beautiful house just one small point bathroom necessities were a minimum for 6 people although this didn't effect our stay and returning for another holiday thank you
"Beautiful home built and decorated to a very high standard helped deliver an excellent holiday."
Owner is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Setting is delightful with views over Barmouth and Barmouth Bay. Barmouth itself is within a good walking distance and approximately 10/15 minutes away and beaches approximately 5/10 minutes away, though the paths can be steep and access for disabled persons might be difficult. Highly recommended and we hope to visit again in the not too distant future. Many thanks.
"It was a beautiful place we loved it would live here that's how much we enjoyed ..."
It was a beautiful place we loved it would live here that's how much we enjoyed it thanks to tim the owner we met him nice feller
"What a beautiful property,well designed and thought out and much bigger than expected."
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 ! We got to meet the owner Tim who was very nice and approachable. Would definitely recommend this property and I’m sure we shall be returning.
"Everyone who has been here has stated that this is an extremely good place and the owners are very friendly."
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.
"It was a fabulous location and wonderful home- fantastic touch of wine tea and coffee - milk and Welsh cakes on arrival- absolutely perfect!"
"I met the owner Tim & honestly he made us feel very welcome, gave us advice on days out & good places to eat."
Best holiday for a long long time highly recommended & I will be going back soon !!!!!
"Really appreciated the welcome chcolates, wine and Welsh cakes."
Wonderful views and lots to do within an hours drive for our teenage boys. Would definitely go back to Arnant.
"Welcoming note and little food items and milk when we arrived."
Warm and cosy house. Very clean. Lovely location.
"Stayed over the Christmas 2017."
Property was fantastic with great views, everything was to a very high standard. Owner was very friendly and checked the house was to our liking. Would stay again.
"Perfect weekend in the perfect house."
We will be back! Thanks so much :-)
