  • "I messaged Sykes about not informing customers of the 4 steep steps leading to the property as the bungalow is advertised as ground level & single storey."

    I have limited mobility so it was a factor in our choice. I was basically told tough luck you didn't investigate properly & we never said it was disability accessible. Any other company would have taken my comments seriously & perhaps implement a warning on the listing or asked for a handrail to be fitted. We had to leave a day early from our holiday as I couldn't cope with the steps any longer & was afraid I might fall. I find the attitude of Sykes Cottages extremely irresponsible & unpleasant. Upon investigation I have found thousands of unhappy customers of Sykes Cottages & we will never book with them again. It's a shame because the property has the potential to be lovely!

  • "We had a lovely stay the property had everything we could want, the only issue I came across was that there was only one baking tray, could do with another and the kitchen knifes were all completely blunt making it impossible to cut any veg, other than that a perfect stay."

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage, situated in a great place for exploring, lovely views of the mountains and nice walks to the estuary and church."

    When we arrived we made a cup of tea and unbeknown to us someone had filled the sugar container with salt. Not a nice experience, particularly after a 6 hour journey to get there. I did go out and buy some sugar and have replaced the salt with sugar. The cottage itself is beautiful but it wasn't that clean, cobwebs and even a sanitary package found down the side of one of the beds when I was looking for my son's teddy. Good place to explore but the cottage would benefit from a sign outside, the postcode actually takes you up a side road to the left of the cottage. No hoover or brush and dustpan so we could only do so much tidying before we left. I would recommend this cottage to others but I would question the price we paid.

  • "Basically a lovely bungalow and well equipped, however it would be useful if there were details of recycling and which bins are for which."

    Also we couldn't really fathom the heating. The cooker oven was filthy and we had to clean the tray and shelves before we could use it. There were cobwebs all around the light in the second bedroom. Also the toilet seat is loose and I saw this mentioned before we went away. Despite all this the bungalow is in a lovely area for travelling around and we enjoyed our holiday.

  • "Cosy and comfortable and well equipped."

    Although we did have an issue with having lukewarm water and a broken toilet seat which had been reported previously and not mended. Despite this we would consider visiting again due to location and price.

  • "Very nice property."

    Clean and tidy with all that we needed. Issue with TV not being able to get terrestrial stations. Toilet seat was broken. No hot water only lukewarm but able to shower. No wardrobe in either bedroom just hooks on back of doors. Would be helpful to have instructions on how the heating works. Would still stay again

  • "It’s a lovely place at first but had its faults."

    I think a list of where everything is could be left at the property. The fridge was off and couldn’t find the switch to turn it on, recycling is different to London so would be nice if the list told us what waste went in what bin. The listing also said there was a jacuzzi, but on arrival it had been removed from the property. The area the property was in was nice. Harlech Castle is well worth a visit. It’s only 3 miles from the property and there is a local small supermarket there if you needs any small bits you might have forgotten. But if you do need a large supermarket Tesco, Aldi and Lidl are about 6 miles away in Porthmadog.

The property

Harlech 3.1 miles.

Nestled in the quaint village of Ynys near Harlech in Gwynedd, Wales is Bryn Hyfryd.

This wonderful detached bungalow boasts off-road parking for one car, a private garden with patio furniture, barbecue, woodburning stove and an open-plan living space, making it the perfect setting for a family looking for a retreat to Snowdonia National Park.

After a busy day exploring the coast or the trails in the National Park, snuggle up on the plush corner sofa with the kids, flick on your favourite film on the Smart TV while the woodburning stove warms the rooms.

Stay here while your partner rustles up a home-cooked meal in the fully-equipped kitchen; enjoy this together at the dining table or indulge in alfresco dining at the furniture in the garden.

Watch the sunset over the Welsh countryside with a glass of wine in hand, before tucking the children into the fun twin room, it’ll feel just like a sleepover!

Then retire to the spacious double bedroom for some well-earned rest and rejuvenation; both rooms are serviced by a sleek bathroom.

Bryn Hyfryd is located in the quaint village of Ynys, ideal for those seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, however it also lies close to the seaside resort of Harlech, home to a stunning stretch of beach where you can enjoy fish and chips while admiring the breath-taking views across the sea.

Harlech is also home to Harlech Castle, an imposing yet impressive mediaeval fortress which was the site of the longest siege in British history.

You could also visit the iconic Italianate village of Portmeirion, which is home to playful architecture inspired by the Mediterranean and has been the filming location for Doctor Who and the 1967 film The Prisoner.

You can also traverse Snowdonia National Park which is bursting at the seams with walks and trails for all abilities, whichever route you pick you are guaranteed stunning vistas across Wales.

Choose Bryn Hyfryd as the base for your next family holiday to Wales.
