  • “Cottage in excellent position sea view amazing large cottage well appointed rooms however the management of the property was very poor lack of sign from the road to locate the property key safe in complete darkness no information manual for the utilities especially the heating radiators needed bleeding (especially the on suite) only three tablets for dishwasher which was poorly maintained glass were coming out with chalky residue despite covid concerns one wc needed cleaning the main waste bin was full to overflowing and recycling bins need emptying conflicting advice given regarding the siting of the bins for emptying as result recycling bins not emptied of the three wall lights in the lounge only one was working that expired on the Wednesday I could go on.”

    These things should have bee sorted before our arrival on a short stay you have not got the time to hang around for solutions to be provided. Not a criticism of Sykes who we have had a good relationship for a number of years

    Thank you for your feedback We appreciate you taking the time to send us your comments and we will make sure that there is a sign for the future to help with directions to the property. We do take on board all of your comments made however, the feedback is very out of character for the cottage as we always receive positive scores and reviews. Due to a recent illness, we were unable to check the property on changeover as we always do and this would have helped with making sure that bins were emptied and dishwasher tablets replaced. We want all Customers to enjoy their stay with us. If there are any problems we can be contacted anytime during your stay and will do everything we can to resolve any issues, that said, the issues you raised should have been resolved before your stay. We hope this doesn't deter you from booking the property again in the future. Once again, thanks for your comments Property Owner

The property

This detached holiday home is in a slightly elevated position on the outskirts of Llanaber, near Barmouth and commands spectacular sea views over the Cambrian Bay coastline.

Bright, spacious and clean living rooms and large bedrooms, combined with a brilliant coastal location make this cottage the perfect family getaway.

Hendre Wylan boasts a well presented interior with soft fabrics and neutral décor in whites, creams, blues and greys, all befitting for a seaside holiday, with sea views enjoyed for most rooms.

The sitting room has an amazing sea view, where on those warm summer evenings you can open up the patio doors to enjoy the fresh sea air, and on the cooler days and evenings the welcomed addition of a real woodburning stove.

A second sitting room/games room is bound to be a favourite with children, a large TV with games console, a selection of games, board games and DVDs are sure to help the adults have a quiet 10 minutes after a hectic day of sightseeing and building sand castles!

The kitchen with dining area is a great space to enjoy family meals together.

The dining area has a large solid wood dining table with matching chairs and the kitchen is sleek, well-appointed and modern ensuring the cook of the family is happy and content.

Finally, on the ground floor, a convenient utility room and cloakroom.

On the first floor, there are five beautifully furnished and individually styled bedrooms upstairs, with the master boasting the addition of an en-suite shower room.

The family bathroom has a bath with shower over as well as a toilet and basin.

There’s plenty of outside seating at Hendre Wylan, at the rear there is a small rear garden but it’s at the front you'll spend most of your time, either on the raised patio area or front facing lawn, taking in the sea air and views, watching the sun ark across the sky dipping over the horizon, the perfect ending to a busy day.

The popular seaside town of Barmouth is a couple of miles to the south, just about walking distance if you fancy stretching your legs one evening.

There are plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from in the town as well as the usual selection of seaside shops and attractions.

There are naturally lots of walks in the area, many of which can be accessed right from the cottage.

Circular routes such as the Panorama Walk and the Precipice Walk are a short drive away as are the higher peaks of Cader Idris, the Rhinog Mountains and of course, Mount Snowdon.

This welcoming Llanaber cottage is an excellent base from which to enjoy this renowned coastline and fabulous surrounding countryside, which is famous for its hill and coastal walks, wonderful beaches, water sports, golf, the medieval castle at Harlech and the beautiful Snowdonia mountains.

A lovely cottage, perfect for an all year round family holiday.

The small coastal village of Llanaber lies between one of the most picturesque resorts on the Welsh coast, Barmouth, and the World Heritage Site of Harlech, all surrounded by the unrivalled splendour of the Snowdonia National Park. Llanaber overlooks beautiful Cardigan Bay and the Llyn Peninsula beyond and is home to the historic 13th century St Mary & St Bodfan church. This is a renowned location for wonderful beaches, fishing, golf, walking, sailing, cycling, mountain biking and horse riding and has ready access to mountains, steam railways, slate quarries and a variety of historic castles. The traditional seaside town of Barmouth boasts an enormous sandy Blue Flag beach, perfect for families. A variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, combined with the mild climate, make this an ideal destination for a holiday, even out of season. This area is a paradise for walkers and climbers, with Mount Cader Idris nearby, the second highest mountain in Wales.
