  • "This was a beautiful cottage and had everything we needed."

    It was a beautiful little village but I can imagine gets very busy in the summer. The logs and wine left from the owners was a lovely extra. We didn’t want to leave x

  • "This is by far one of the best cottages we have stayed at."

    It ticked all our boxes, including being very clean, comfortable and warm, with a great log burner ( generous supply of logs provided), a well equipped kitchen, great TV package, private parking and in a fantastic location in a lovely place. The beach is literally a few minutes walk away from the doorstep, as is the local Spar and a Bakery, and a very friendly hotel overlooking the bay. This was our second stay and we will definitely be back again.

  • "We have stayed in a few Sykes cottages and this one did not disappoint ."

    It is very well appointed being in the middle of the village literally over the road from the spa which had absolutely everything we needed including my favourite wine ! There are all the facilities in the cottage you could need for catering for yourselves so we stayed in and cooked our own meals nearly every day . The log burner was a fabulous bonus and was easy to use . The cottage was easy to keep clean and tidy even with a dog and having direct access to the back door meant coming back from a walk on the beach we could dry the dog off before bringing him in . We used the washing machine and it even had a surer to get washing dry on and a line and pegs for summer months . The pool table was a fabulous bonus although a bit cold to be out there at night the boys enjoyed it . There was always plenty of hot water and a fabulous shower . The owners were only next door but didn’t interfere at all but came straight away when we needed some help with the heating timer. Having the bakery next door was nice for fresh bread pastries and cakes . The beach is literally a minutes walk away and even at high tide there was enough beach for my dog and his ball to run up and down . Do note that dogs are not allowed on the beach between April and September . And also the chip shop gift shops and cafes are all closed this time of year . Food is available at one of the two pubs which was very nice and also allows dogs in the front rooms. All in all a fabulous weeks stay with everything we needed . Highly recommend .

    Big improvements made to the rear garden with paving replacing loose gravel. We got lucky with the best weather of the summer and never moved from Aberdaron all week, as we love the place and the beaches. Will be very happy to stay in the property again. Peter and Olly

  • "The best part about this property is the location as it is really convenient for shops and beach and it was clean and well maintained."

    The loft bedroom is lovely and spacious with a lot of light. The negatives are - It could have done with more kitchen utensils such as a cafe tiere and some decent cups (cups big and chunky). It does have a filter coffee machine which is very outdated in this day and age. A dishwasher in this size of property is expected to maintain as this would maintain hygiene. The washing machine is old and could do with updating. The age of the property is that there is probably some damp which you could feel in the downstairs bedrooms and sitting room. The TV was difficult to work out as it is Aire TV and not straightforward. All in all it was a reasonable stay but not sure I would book again due to comfort.

    We keep coming back because the location is perfect - it is literally 100 yards to the beach and if the weather is bad, what better place to watch the big waves than the covered bar terrace in the Gwesty Ty Newydd. We’ll be back!

  • "The cottage is beautiful, location perfect."

    It is listed as having tumble dryer, which was nowhere to found, we could not use pool table, as it was covered and two old freezers in room and work going on. The bed in upstairs room, the mattress is just like sleeping on bare springs, I had to sleep on top of duvet for some padding. The downstairs bedroom TV did not work, I tried to contact owners who were away, they sent their daughter, but we didn't hear her and dogs didn't bark, so that wasn't resolved, the microwave kept blowing fuses, which we bought to replace, but gave up with that. There were no starter logs and kindle for fire, which is stated there would be. All this spoilt our much looked forward to holiday.

Situated right in the heart of the village, but set back from the road with ample parking and quite private. We loved the fact that you could walk to the beach shop, bakery and the hotel in minutes.

  • "Had a fantastic late November weeks stay at Pen Y Bont."

    The cottage is very cosy and we really enjoyed nights in front of the woodburning fire. Pen Y Bont has all the facilities you could wish for and more, we were very comfortable indeed. Owners Iain and Wilma are very welcoming/helpful and live nearby if required. The cottage is perfectly situated in the village, a stone's throw from the beach and all amenities. Aberdaron is obviously pretty quiet at this time of year but still has two pubs, a bakery and a Spar open to keep you going. Only went in the Gwesty Ty Newydd pub during our stay, situated right on the beach, had a couple of very nice meals in there, dog friendly in the front bar too. Aberdaron is well situated for touring the peninsula and would highly recommend Pen Y Bont as a place to stay, we would definitely like to return one day

  • "Really enjoyed our stay in this very charming, comfortable and well equipped cottage."

    The bottle of wine was much appreciated. Coat hooks would have been welcomed in the porch area. The shower was very powerful and it would be worth warning guests to turn taps on only slightly as the shower tray can overflow. These are only small points in an otherwise excellent cottage and would definitely recommend to others.

  • "This feels like a very mixed review."

    There were a lot of pluses to this cottage, it was very clean and well maintained as well as well located - however vastly overpriced. I suspect that this was because of the demand for such places due to covid and understandably there is a need to recuperate losses from the last 18 months. However, our biggest disappointment was the internet. It was desperately poor and we could only access it in the top bedroom or outside at the front of the house. Ordinarily I might have been able to have forgiven this, but given the price we paid I have had to score lower than it probably would have scored in a normal year.
