  • “Great little cottage in a scenic valley”

    We had stayed in a Sykes Cottages propoerty previously, in Scotland, and were disappointed, but had no complaints about Minffordd. The setting, in a picturesque valley with Craig yr Aderyn on one side and Cadair Idris on the other, was perfect, The cottage is a well-renovated old end-of-terrace with lots of character, and good facilities. There is on-site parking for a single small car, and pets are allowed, and can wander around the garden (finding a sheep in the garden was a surprise one morning, though - hopefully the hole in the back fence is now fixed!) The local caretakers of the property were quick to respond when we reported a couple of problems, and the next door neighbours were very friendly too.As an added bonus, look out for the jam and cake stall a hundred metres down the road. The lack of a mobile phone signal or any data network at all was the only real disadvantage. Providing a little more information for new visitors is our only other improvement suggestion: it would be good if Sykes' compiled a standard list of things that renters like to know, and then each cottage could have its own version of this completed, courtesy of the caretakers, and left as a welcome for new renters. So, in summary, we would highly recommend this cottage.

About the location

LLANEGRYN

Tywyn 4 miles; Aberdovey 8 miles.

Llanegryn is a small, quiet village located in the beautiful Dysynni Valley, in the south of the Snowdonia National Park. Llanegryn is only 4 miles from the bustling coastal town of Tywyn, home of the wonderful Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Steam Railway, whose 7 mile track travels along one of the most majestic settings in the UK, including the stunning Talyllyn Lake which lies at the foot of Mount Cader Idris (2899’). Tywyn’s long sandy beach is a favourite for families and is very popular for water sports, especially surfing. A further 4 miles away is the charming seaside village of Aberdovey with its quiet streets and squares of houses behind its busy seafront; the wide beach is renowned for sailing, sailboarding, fishing, boat trips and an excellent 18 hole championship golf course.
