  • "Hendre Wylan had everything we needed for a large family of 10 and dogs the amount of space is fantastic with a great view of the beach below."

    Kitchen was well equipped for cooking which we did throughout our week the gardens to front is ample for the children to play where we could see them and an enclosed garden at the back for the dogs to play. The owners were excellent at providing information for us and very responsive when we needed them to fix a handle on a door that had worked loose will definately be back next year

  • "This is a truly wonderful place with an amazing setting."

    You will be hard pressed to find anywhere better. The views from four bedrooms of the sea are amazing and the twin room enjoys a lovely view of the mountain behind. The kitchen and lounge also share fantastic sea views. The place is spacious so the nine of us (adults) were never under each others feet. It is equipped with nearly everything you'd need. Take something to cover microwave bowls though as there weren't any. It was lovely to be able to all sit outside on the balcony and eat at the table on the rattan furniture when the sun shone! (Not shown in listing pictures.) It was a little difficult to find as sat nav didn't take us straight there so What3Words might be better to use. We fitted 5 cars on the driveway (mix of sizes) without obstructing the roadway so plenty of room there too. We used this as a base for visiting Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) as it was only an hour or so away. We would love to return the next time we are all getting together for a birthday celebration!! Thanks to the owners for opening your home to us.

  • "Well what can I say?"

    I think wow is the best single word to describe hendre wylan, it was simply perfect, the house was better than our expectations, it was spotlessly clean with everything we needed to hand, the beds were extremely comfortable, the location was excellent with the most amazing views of cardigan bay. We would definitely consider returning again.

  • "Had a wonderful stay at Hendre Wylan."

    It was everything we wanted and we got the glorious weather to go with it. (not too keen on the Sahara dust all over our cars though, but that was beyond our hosts control). Had some great days out in Barmouth, Portmerion and Shell Island, and then back to Hendre Wylan in the evenings to chill out with the brilliant views out to sea in the Cardigan Bay. Very well equipped house. (Could have done with top sheets on the beds as an alternative to the quilts as it was warm at night and the quilts were too warm)

  • "Lovely place to stay for a large gathering of friends or family, the views and proximity to the sea,beach and Barmouth is great and close to Harlech well worth a visit, property comfy beds which is a plus, good size house so not on top of each other, no welcome pack which surprised us, every place I’ve stayed at which is many all have had one, not even milk so make sure you take everything from the get go as no tea,coffee cleaning stuff, one tea towel and when check in is after 4 is always a bonus, all in all great stay and Barmouth is so dog Friendly."

    You can access the beach through the campsite opposite. Would recommend Norbar and The Last Inn for food. And SUP Barmouth for paddle boarding. Enjoy your stay if going.

  • "A big comfortable property but starting to show some wear and tear in places."

    Was a bit disappointed the starter pack for the log burner and no tools for using/cleaning it were available and to find a single oven which when cooking Christmas dinner for ten isn't ideal. Think 2.7k for the week was a bit steep with the property as it is at the moment, it has plenty of scope to be so much more (another shower maybe) but all in all had a great stay and good Christmas. Great food in Norbar a short walk away and some nice friendly bars in Barmouth.

  • "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 house was perfectly located with sea views however the house itself was not fully cleaned stray hairs and dust in the toilet areas, there were two old and curled up rugs on the landing which my mother nearly tripped over!"

    When we took them up they were hiding massive stains on the carpet, there were no cleaning products at all anywhere in the house, however it was a very spacious property and the bedding was very clean, it was a shame there were no cushions on the outside patio furniture. Having said that we did enjoy our time in Barmouth .

    The view is fantastic and just a short walk to the sandy beach. The only problem was the lack of cooking equipment suitable for 10 people, crockery, cutlery and glasses were fine. Spare key would have been helpful if people going out separately.

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.

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Barmouth 1 mile; Harlech 8 miles.

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. An abundance of wildlife along the Mawddach Estuary, trout fishing in mountain lakes, Harlech Castle, St David's golf course and Portmeirion Italianate Village are just a handful of the many superb attractions within this beautiful area.
