  • "A great large house with excellent facilities and a location with fantastic views about 8 mins from the bridge into the town."

    The driveway is not easy to identify on first arriving and is a steep incline which needs you to be in first gear to get up the hill but ample parking and turning space at the top.

    .clean comfortable and very well appointed…roughly a 10min walk to Dogellau and what a lovely little town with small shops and wonderful pubs and places to eat… Easy access to all places we wanted to visit by car . I roughly go every year to Wales and as always everything exceeded expectations including the weather

  • "There is a very steep, windy drive up to the house which is difficult to negotiate."

    You need to approach from Dolgellau, put the car in first gear, take the right hand fork and just keep going, otherwise you are in trouble. Please can there be a larger house sign at the bottom of the drive as well!

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Llechwedd!"

    The photos of the property don't do it justice and it felt much bigger. It is in a private position and we didn't really see anyone else whilst we were there. Just note, it is difficult to find the first time and we needed to call David.. Look for the bird on the post! The gardens are huge and it also has a nice seated area. The views are also amazing. Dolgellau has a fantastic park for children, with nice little shops. We made the most of the area and visited, Barmouth Beach (a must). We went for a walk up Cadair Idris and made it to the lake. We visited Portmeirion, which is a nice day out. Aberdovey, is a nice beach day, not as many shops as Barmouth. Dolgoch Falls, is also lovely and not far from the house. The house, has nearly everything you need and we would certainly look at coming again! Thank you :)

  • "Lovely property, well designed and in good condition, squeaky clean."

    Everything worked well (wifi, heating etc). Although it’s within easy walking distance from town its position on the hillside at the edge makes it feel more secluded, and the road connections from Dolgellau are excellent. Beautiful garden, please note that it’s very steep so small kids will need constant supervision. Great communication from David the owner who sent us useful suggestions for steam train adventures for our train-obsessed kids! The driveway is a little hard to spot from Barmouth road but once you’ve found it the first time it’s easy (look for the stone duck on the gatepost!)

  • "The property is spacious, well equipped and very quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there."

    Dolgellau is an interesting town with plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants, and is a good centre from which to explore West Snowdonia. Just some small points: 1) The house is difficult to find initially as the house sign is barely visible on Barmouth Road. We had to park then walk to find the property. 2) The walk to town centre is more like 10-15 mins than 5 (but is flat apart from the short steep bit between house and road). 3) No sign of a visitor's book, would have been interesting to read other people's comments.

  • "I have always been a fan of Sykes, having been a regular customer for many years."

    However, the acid test is when a business faces a customer challenge, and you see how the company responds. I rented the cottage, Llechwedd in Dolgellau mid Jan 2019. It is a large hillside detached house with big rooms and corridors.The central heating is oil fired and it broke down due to boiler failure three quarters of the way into our holiday. The owner promptly came over with a couple of noisy warm air blowers. These were not nearly enough to keep the house habitable and ineffective as a central heating substitute. We hunkered down in the kitchen which was the only room that we could get warm. The rest of the house remained freezing. The boiler repair man said the spare part for the boiler could not be fitted until our due departure date. We decided to leave early and go home as the house was too cold. The owner and Sykes have been absolutely dogmatic that provision of warm air blowers is an adequate substitute for a full CH system in a Welsh January. This was definitely NOT the case. I have explained to the owner and Sykes that I understand that problems and breakdowns can happen, but that we, the customers have lost a couple of days of our holiday for which we made a payment. I am not after a rebate on the money we paid for the rental, more an acknowledgement/apology of how much we were inconvenienced. All responses from the owner/Sykes have been defensive and dismissive of our problem, which frankly I find very poor behaviour. I have suggested that as a goodwill gesture a small value voucher towards our next possible Sykes cottage holiday would make for good customer relations. This has not been forthcoming either. So overall I have felt very disappointed at my treatment by the owner and Sykes who basically say being left with no Central Heating in a Welsh January is fine. Bob
