  • "Property very nice and quiet."

    Bedrooms extremely comfortable with lovely bathrooms. Trains were not running during our stay but concerned that it might be noisy had they been.

  • "This is a great holiday home in a good location for easy access to the sandy beach or to drive into Snowdonia ."

    The kitchen is not huge but it is very well equipped with a handy hatch to the dining room. Otherwise the house is spacious and very comfortable with great bathrooms. The garden with its playhouse was perfect for our young grandchildren, if only the weather had allowed us to use the outside dining area. As others have mentioned the WiFi is poor unless you are close to the router. Overall a very good holiday home and we would happily return.

  • "This house was fantastic for our big family holiday birthday celebrations, the bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms were of a very high standard and very comfortable as well as the sitting rooms, the kitchen needs a bit of tlc, some of the door handles were missing off the kitchen doors , the dinning area is lovely but it a squeeze for 10 persons as 4 have to sit on a bench, we did not use the BBQ but it looks a bit tired , we visited the swimming pool at the sister camp site which was fab you book an hour slot, kids liked the soft play, we all loved the amusement arcades, and the long walks across the beach just down the road."

    Ninteen 57 restaurant was also brilliant they looked after us very well, the happy hour was much appreciated , we all really loved our stay in this beautiful house , and the location is perfect to explore nearby Barmouth and we also had dinner at Norbar restaurants, it's a little more pricey but really lovely food and the views are stunning. Many memories made for my family from 9 to 80 years old

  • "Property was great, well equipped kitchen, brilliant garden."

    Use of stair gates and cots was a great bonus. Was a shame there was a small charcoal bbq in the garden when listing photos showed a large gas one and was a struggle to get signal on tv's in the bedrooms. WiFi was rubbish if you were not sat in the room where the router was. Bedrooms were very spacious and loads of bathrooms too. Use of the local swimming pool was a great addition too. Would recommend and stay again.

  • "This house has everything you need for a family holiday."

    Lots of space and places to spend a bit of quiet time if you want. Good location and the beach is a short walk away. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils. Bbq needs an update. It was a bonus having access to a small pool and soft play area on next campsite.

    Also had a little welcome pack of food. Enjoyed our stay immensely

  • "The house is fabulous!"

    It suited our family party of 10 perfectly. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and beautifully presented, with quality linen and fittings. The downstairs space is great, with room to spread out, and a utility room for coats shoes and bags. We only cooked brunch but the kitchen had everything needed to cater for 10 people. The children were well provided for, with outdoor space, and games and DVDs for inside entertainment. However, there were a couple of issues... The website advertised WiFi access and use of a swimming pool, and this influenced our choice of property. But there was no information in the house about accessing the WiFi, and I had no joy when I tried to contact the owner. Also, when we took the children to the neighbouring caravan park to swim, the pool was closed until Easter, despite the fact that I had phoned to check just a few days previously whether it was open. I believe the house has undergone a recent change in ownership/management (eg the contact name on Sykes website is out of date) so maybe they are still putting final arrangements in place. It would have been helpful if this was mentioned when we booked. However, once these issues are solved we would definitely stay again.

  • "The property is excellent and very spacious and comfortable."

    We were pleased to find large pans in the kitchen, suitable for a family group's meals. The only thing we would have liked added was a cafetiere. Great position near the beach and the pool at Sunnysands was lovely. Really good value for money.

    Well kept and the perfect blend of cozy and rustic. My only disappointment was being unable to bring the dog with us, but the area and home more then made up for it. Highly recommended to anyone thinking of holidaying around North Wales, well worth the stay!

    Fantastic house in a great area with lovely views. Everything you could need is at the house, with a lovely garden to relax in. A 10 minute walk takes you to the fantastic beach. Lots of amenities around, with a great pub within walking distance (Ysgethin Inn). The pub is in a beautiful setting along the river.

    The house itself feels incredibly warm, cosy and welcoming. And the standard of décor was spot on. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable, with great bed linen. We would genuinely come back and stay here. And there aren't many places we would say that about.

Nice large outside table which was great as we ate breakfast & the evening meal in the garden most days as the weather was so good. Beach about 10 mins away. Station literally 2 minutes away, we caught the train to Fairbourne. It's great way to go up & down the coast if you want to avoid the traffic. Would book again.

    Lots of walking can be done from the doorstep with a train station seconds walk away from the house. (You don't notice the noise!) Facilities ok, few issues with showers but reported them to owner on departing. Wouldn't hesitate to go back to Tyddyn Goronwy as we had a great week, despite the awful weather.

  • "The house was immaculate, very well appointed, and the complimentary basket was very well appreciated when we arrived at the property."

    The property is even better than the photos suggest. The only minor issue which could be addressed simply by adding a trellis or some other natural screening, is that the adjacent camping site has a toilet / shower block immediately next to the house which does takeaway a degree of privacy. Kind regards, Michael Cox.

  • "Our cottage was perfect for 10 friends meeting up for an annual holiday."

    We were situated close to Snowdon and Cader Idris for the fittest and a beautiful beach 5 minutes away for the rest. The nearby swimming pool was lovely and warm and often empty. The house had everything we needed. When one person asked for a lighter duvet, it was delivered very quickly. All staff were very friendly. We would all give the house full marks.

    A few minutes walk to the train to Barmouth/Harlech. The house itself is well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. We had three generations staying the youngest was five and the eldest over seventy and each and every-one of us enjoyed it. We hope to return and that in itself says it all. The older children complained about the speed of the Wifi but to us that was a bonus as we got them out and about more.

    With two comfortable reception rooms, and a spacious dining room, six bedrooms (two en suite, plus two "family" bathrooms and two extra toilets) there is plenty of room for everyone in a large group. The house is decorated and equipped to a very high standard: even in the nicest self-catering house, there is usually one thing you would change or improve -- I can't think of a single thing The weather was wild and windy while we were there, but we managed to find brighter moments for great walks, and the beach is a short stroll from the house. There were some very interesting options for eating out, even within walking distance. Tyddyn Goronwy was a terrific find!

    Lots of room for large family with all the facilities a family would wish for. There was no indication in the description that the property was surrounded by caravan sites nor that other facilities available e.g. swimming pool was a short drive away at another site. However this did not spoil our holiday as was out of season but could impact on others staying during high season. The owner was very helpful when we did have a couple of small queries.

  • "A lovely comfortable and spacious property ideally located for the beach, local pubs and restaurants and general sightseeing."

    Our party of 5 adults and 5 children( aged between 1 and 11 ) were more than adequately accommodated in the 3 storey house. There was a very generous welcome pack on our arrival and the information pack provided was very comprehensive covering lots of different subjects. The only downside was the WiFi wasn’t that brilliant but we managed and because of the local terrain it was probably only to be expexcted. The property owner, Sarah Williams, with whom I had 2 telephone conversations, was a very pleasant lady and was able to answer all my questions as well as give good advice. A great holiday was enjoyed by my entire family and I would highly recommend it to anyone who was thinking about it to rent.
