    “I will not be back”

    I booked Braich-y-Celyn Lodge through Sykes Cottages for a week. The cottage is in a fabulous location with lovely views over the estuary. BUT. We had problems with the cottage. There was no hot water when we arrived which we would have expected as the immersion heater should have been on that morning. We discovered that it was set to come on for two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon but it was only set at 20 degrees. We were told that it was to provide hot water for the ...

    I booked Braich-y-Celyn Lodge through Sykes Cottages for a week. The cottage is in a fabulous location with lovely views over the estuary. BUT. We had problems with the cottage. There was no hot water when we arrived which we would have expected as the immersion heater should have been on that morning. We discovered that it was set to come on for two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon but it was only set at 20 degrees. We were told that it was to provide hot water for the kitchen sink and the bathroom hand basin. We should us the shower to bathe.If you advertise a bath with shower over you expect to be able to use the bath, why advertise bath if you can not use it? The cooker oven did not work and there is no microwave oven. We tried to contact the owner but got no response so called the caretaker Alan. He came out to sort the problem out for us on the Saturday evening and was eventually able to get it to work, apparently this problem had happened before. There were signs of slugs or snails on the lounge carpet and on the stairs and the whole cottage needed a good hoovering. While we loved Aberdovey and hope to return in the future we will not return to this property. We wrote to Sykes Cottages when we came home about the problems we encountered.

The property

Aberdovey 1 mile.

A delightful, detached cottage, a former entrance lodge to a country estate, with wonderful estuary views, on the outskirts of the seaside resort of Aberdovey.

Full of character, with features including beams, slate flooring, the original bread oven, a woodburner, underfloor heating and original ornamental fireplaces in the bedrooms, this lovely Wales cottage has been sympathetically restored, and decorated with great style.

With wonderful views from every room over the estuary and the sandy beach just one mile away, this is a delightful setting.

Aberdovey has shops, tea rooms and pubs.

Great days out can be had in Machynlleth, the Snowdonia National Park, or on the local steam railway.

A perfect Aberdovey cottage to return to, whatever the time of year.

About the location

ABERDOVEY

Tywyn 5 miles; Machynlleth 11 miles.

The picturesque harbour village of Aberdovey is renowned for its mild climate, sandy beaches, sailing and a championship 18-hole links golf course (rated in the UK's top 100). The village is often referred to as “an artist's paradise” with its pastel-coloured cottages, small shops, inns and excellent restaurants which specialise in local seafood, all helping to create a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Aberdovey boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with four miles of golden sand-dune-backed shoreline running north to Tywyn, home of the world-famous Talyllyn Steam Railway and crab fishing. The beaches are popular with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen while the estuary attracts a wide range of watersports enthusiasts. The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complemented by the charm of the Dovey and Dysynni valleys nearby. An ideal area for walkers, climbers and wildlife watchers, and a wonderful all-year-round location.
