  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    Beautiful house and perfect for our family of 5. Would definitely go back again and will recommend. A second pillow on the kids beds and bigger towels would be my only suggestions but that is only personal preference

  • "This is undoubtedly a lovely house."

    The views are spectacular, it’s beautifully decorated. It has lush Roman blinds on most of the windows and the beds are comfortable. The Wi-Fi is fast and all 4 televisions work well. The drive is spacious, easily fitting our two cars. The furnishings are fine. There was always plenty of hot water. I filled the bird feeders and enjoyed watching sparrows, blue tits and finches dropping by. The welcome pack was useful although we did bring most of what was provided with us anyway. We’ve always been happy with just a pint of milk in the fridge. Having stayed in lots of Sykes cottages we did think this property lacked in some areas given its rental cost and rating. We were a party of 4 adults and one infant. Usually there is an information folder about recycling, waste collection, nearest doctors, dentists etc. There were no instructions for any of the appliances. Obviously we could have asked the owner if we’d really needed assistance. We could only find 1 back door key. There were no bedside tables, cabinets or lamps in the twin room. There were no shelves, toothbrush holders or hooks in the bathrooms. A waste bin anywhere on the ground floor, perhaps in the utility room would have been useful as would a seat in the hallway to sit and remove outdoor shoes. Each single bed had only one pillow although there were decorative cushions. There were 3 saucepans and 2 lids. We could have done with some more crockery, glassware and cutlery. For a house that sleeps 5, 6 mugs, 3 wine glasses, (one of which was chipped) 5 bowls and 6 sets of adult cutlery seemed very sparse. We had to wash up after every meal and drink rather than filling the 12 setting dishwasher. The towels, while of good quality, were too small, even for my size 8 daughter-in-law. The vacuum cleaner was left full. The house was very peaceful with very little passing traffic at night. I would recommend buying from the Dolwen farm shop nearby, their lamb was delicious, and a breakfast at Bryn Williams at Porto Eiras.

  • "A really lovely cottage, well designed and equipped."

    Lovely distant views over farmland towards the coast. A good local shop/post office/ off licence rolled into one and great pub (The Wheatsheaf) within a 5 minute walk. Great location for getting into both Snowdonia and the coast. Highly recommend and would definitely re-book.

  • "There were five of us and it was a very nice cottage with lovely views in a nice village setting with shop, garage and pub."

    Plenty of televisions, ample parking off road, fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. The welcome pack was a nice touch and there was plenty of tea, coffee and sugar. We found a few missing that would have been handy:- there was no teapot or potato masher and no pegs for the outside drying line. There was a battery vacuum cleaner however after trying to use it we found the head was totally blocked, it took me 15 minutes to clear it, only to find that on an overnight charge it lasted 10 seconds!

    Garden was great for our little dog, although as seen in other reviews dog poo was left from previous clients which as a responsible dog owner was not nice but no fault of the owners. Lovely bottle of wine, bread, eggs etc left which was a nice welcome to this beautiful cottage. Highly recommend a stay in this lovely village, in a beautiful area of Wales

  • "The property was actually better than described, very well appointed and probably one of the most comfortably furnished holiday cottages we've used."

    There were many small touches that really put this property above others, for example we stayed over shrove Tuesday and the owner had left a recipe to make pancakes. I would really recommend this property for a stay in a small but well located village away from the crowds but not too far from really good places of interest.

  • "On first arriving the property looked a little tired outside, but it was February, unfortunately one of the first sights was dog poo in the garden."

    The cottage was nicely presented and looked to have everything we needed. After a long journey the first stop for us both was the bathroom , unfortunately there was no toilet roll in the en-suite which was a bit awkward. The mattress on the small double bed was so soft it felt like a water bed so we ended up sleeping in single beds!. The kitchen would benefit from a few more utensils, like a bread knife or at least sharpen the two knives that are there. Also at least a couple of dishwasher tablets to get started with. The rubbish bins outside were full so we had nowhere to leave the rubbish. There was no holder for the toilet roll which we had to buy in the en-suite also no shelf to put shampoo etc on or anywhere to hang clothing up. There was still food in the freezer and the cupboard. Very disappointed !!!

    Apologies that you have not had a great stay but thank you for your feedback - much appreciated. However may I add as you know as a dog owner yourself we allow dogs to stay and our cleaner regularly checks our garden for those guests that may have forgotten to pick up for themselves but this can be an oversight snd I have fed this back to our cleaner. Toilet roll was in the main bathroom for you to make use of. The bed is a regular double bed that I bought from John Lewis when I lived there and cost over £1k - unfortunately soft medium hard is personal choice and I cannot accommodate everyone but again apologies that you decided to stay on the single beds. I said in my welcome pack please give me a ring if you had any questions and I would have rectified the knives - thank you for your helpful feedback.l I will rectify the knife concerns. All the pans, serving dishes, wines glasses were for my family of 5 when I lived there and I have not had any complaints so I am surprised there were not enough utensils for the 2 of you? With regards to the bins - you arrived Friday - the bin men come on a Monday hence the bins being full. May I also comment that this is self catering so rolls of toilet roll, dishwasher tabs (which are available)don’t have to be added to my welcome pack of wine, milk, eggs, tea, coffee, sugar and butter which you were happy to have. Once again thank you for your feedback Property Owner

    ! The property was extremely clean, high spec, had everything a family needed which included a dish washer, washing machine and tumble drier, the log burner was amazing too. Very comfortable beds. The welcome pack was very much appreciated, perfect after our long journey and for next morning breakfast. The layout in property was perfect and great storage provided. Netflix was great to have too. 4 TVs throughout property. Views absolutely stunning! The person in the little local shop down the road (5mins walk)was so helpful and small shop was well stocked and even gave our son a Christmas prezzie (chocolates) and free hot chocolate drink as mummy was poorly with cold. So friendly and welcoming. Overall, we loved the holiday let and village. Location perfect for walks and distance to get to coast. We will be back as soon as we can!

  • "Beautiful, clean and modern property."

    Easy to find and instructions were clear. Everything you would need was to hand and we instantly felt at home and comfortable. The log burner is a lovely cozy touch. The only criticism - and it's minor - was no DVD player but so glad there was a modern TV enabling us to login to our Netflix account! The views across the fields are stunning, the wine, milk, bread, welsh cakes, welcome card with number should we have any issues, were all thoughtful and lovely touches. Must also mention the pear tree with an abundance of delicious fruit! We definitely recommend this holiday property and would love to stay again.

    One of our lasting memories of the holiday will be the view from the windows of the dining area and lounge down toward the coast. It is tremendous and always changing. It would have been so frustrating if the living and dining areas were on the ground floor. The balcony was great too for al fresco breakfasts, star gazing and much in between. The way that we were made to feel so welcome, even though there was no one there to welcome us, was pretty marvellous too. All aspects of the house seem to have been put together to a high standard and we have come away inspired with a few ideas which we might employ in our home. We could definitely have stayed longer!

  • "Initial impression was excellent, a beautiful property, well presented and in a lovely quiet location and the items left by the owners were a lovely touch and welcoming on arrival."

    Once we settled in though we identified a few problems, particularly in the kitchen. Main problems were with the fridge that wasn't working properly (not cooling), the dishwasher which was also not functioning properly (didn't seem to work every time it was used) and finally the TV reception was very intermittent making it unwatchable. The general cleanliness was OK at a surface level but in corners and under the reclining sofa needed a very thorough clean, as did the balcony. It seemed clear that the property hadn't been used much recently, the washing machine smelled and the vacuum cleaner also smelled when in use. The kitchen looked beautiful but would benefit from a few more items such as serving bowls, oven trays and more cutlery to make it more versatile. The en-suite bathroom would benefit from some hooks to hang clothes on, the only option was to leave things draped over the sink or on the toilet. Also no toilet roll holders so again these had to be placed on either the sink or the cistern. Given the floors were all laminated it would have been useful to have a mop and bucket to hand in case of spillages. Some waste bins in the bedrooms or utility room would have been useful. It was a lovely property but when paying £1000 for a week we wouldn't have expected to have had these issues, hopefully the owners will be able to address these. We wish the owners well, once these small issues are addressed this will be an amazing property.
