  • "Fabulous site, very cozy, appreciated the good supply of wood."

    We were rather disconcerted that the back door (a designated fire escape) was completely wedged shut, but impossible to bolt (the bolts are present but couldn't be aligned to lock). We were scared to force the door open in case we could then not close it at all! Personal preference, I know, but we would rather have access to a washing machine than a dish washer particularly given the location and welsh weather.

    Hi Graham. Glad you enjoyed your stay. The back door can be a bit stiff but we've made sure it's free - just needed a good pull!!!! Due to the lack of space I'm afraid we had to choose between a washing machine and dishwasher and we don't like washing up so that won!!!! ;-) Property Owner

  • "Everything about this little house was brilliant and the welcome treat was a lovely surprise."

    The location was excellent also. Would we go back, yes most definitely however the check in time of 4:30 is far too late. We felt we lost a days holiday. We travelled over 5 hours to get there and wanted to get in asap so that we could enjoy the afternoon/evening. 3pm appears to be the norm for everywhere else. That said we will be back as it was such a brilliant holiday and place to stay. Very well equipped and attention to detail. Thank you little house for a great stay.

    Hi Madeline. We're glad you enjoyed the stay and will look at changing the check in time if we can. Thanks TLH Property Owner

  • "The most wonderful holiday cottage, nestled in the best location in Snowdonia, it sits in a quiet and peaceful valley, with Snowdon quietly watching over."

    Inside the cottage, there is everything you could need for a wonderful family holiday and the owners even left us a little treat for our arrival. The beds were so comfortable and the Mountain View from our bed each morning was a highlight! From the cottage, there are walks on the doorstep and the views in every direction are spectacular. it is in a perfectly central location, with the nearest convenience store, a co-op, only 10 minutes away and you can get to all that Snowdonia has to offer within about 30 minutes in any direction. We fell in love with the tranquility of this wonderful cottage and we know we will return again and again. A favourite family holiday location for many years to come. Thank you for having us!

    Thank you for the great feedback - it's always nice to hear that people love the place as much as we do! Property Owner

  • "A lovely little holiday cottage, very comfortable and cosy with everything that you need."

    Set in a very peaceful beautiful valley but very close to amenities, Snowdon trails, steam railways, lakes and the wonderful village of Beddgelert. A short drive away from Llanberis and Betws-y-Coed which are definitely recommended. We found the cottage to be exactly as described and loved it.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback! Hopefully see you again soon. Property Owner

    We were fortunate to have very good weather, but can imagine that the cottage would be very cosy even when the weather might be more challenging.

  • "Enjoyed our stay at this cute cottage."

    Superb position. Easy to access walks from doorstep. For longer stays, access to washing machine would be helpful. Local information on walks etc would be great -but maps helpful! Some kitchen basics would also be helpful ie oil, pepper. But excellent stay. Cosy inside and lovely to sit out when sun out and wind has died down.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

  • "Wonderful setting and location."

    Lovely layout, very well-appointed inside, loved the garden. Great weather meant we could relax outside on the bench after our walks. Wifi only allows very limited usage - eg only one phone connected at a time. Most frustrating issue was that the back door was padlocked and no key, nor mention of a key anywhere. Being able to open it would have been great. This was also on the fire plan as a fire exit which wasn't great.

    Hi Sally. Glad you enjoyed the stay. There is a padlock on the door but it doesn’t stop it opening - the door can just be a bit stiff! We’ll remove it to stop any future confusion and wax the door to make it easier to open! Thanks again. Property Owner

  • "We loved the cottage."

    The only problem we had was the Internet was very poor and the router actually stopped working during our stay. We think this was due an electrical storm so couldn't be helped. However even when working it was very unreliable. We actually didn't mind though and it was refreshing change, helping to break our phone addiction! The cottage is absolutely delightful, and we kind of fell in love with it! It was very clean, so cosy and really well equipped :). The valley is rugged and striking, it felt very remote and we enjoyed hearing the wind blowing down the chimney. The wood burner on Christmas morning was an added bonus. We weren't sure whether logs were supplied and when we phoned Sykes they said that they thought we may have to bring our own because its not mentioned. However there was a really good supply of well seasoned logs in the house and more outside. All in all a fantastic little place for a base from which to explore especially if you like the idea of isolation!

    Glad you had a great Christmas here! We’ve now got multiple replacement routers in case this happens again!!! Hopefully see you soon! Property Owner

  • "This was a cosy cottage to use as a base to explore the beautiful countryside (the mountainous landscape is stunning)."

    No complaints about the lovely cottage except that the listing specifically says that the water is safe to drink. We think that it could more accurately state that the water from one little tap is safe to drink. It was difficult to clean the fire out after lighting it the previous night as there must be a knack to opening the tray. The bed was extremely comfortable and the garden was a plus. We would stay there again.

    Hi Christine. Thanks for the feedback. All the water ‘just’ passes the council’s requirements but as the mineral levels fluctuate we decided it’s safer to put a drinking water system in which removes all impurities. We’ve also updated the manual to include cleaning instructions. Thanks again for your feedback Property Owner

    It was really clean and had great facilities, everything had been thought about. It was wonderful to sit and just listen to peace and quiet. We loved that you were able to walk from the door to the mountains, if not on the road a little. We will defo be back.

  • "The cottage was very nice, clean and comfortable but the stairs up to the twin bedroom were very narrow and steep, so my son who has slight mobility problems was unable to go up them."

    Fortunately, as the bathroom was downstairs, he didn't have to go up them. My husband and I used the twin room and our son had the double bed downstairs. I think you should mention in the information about the cottage that the stairs aren't suitable for people with mobility problems. The location was really good, scenic and quiet.

There is a second small 'chill out' area upstairs with books and a reading chair with views through the velux windows over the opposite mountain ridge and a TV (to play DVDs only). There is a large enclosed garden laid to lawn, and shrubs and fruit bushes to the front with a rustic swing set.

To the rear is a large patio area with garden furniture.

There is an anchor panel for bikes and parking for 3 cars on the driveway. Mountains, forests, rivers, lakes, beaches and historic towns are all easily accessible from Tan Meredydd.

Attractions such as the Welsh Highland Railway, Caernarfon castle, Zip World and Bounce Below are also just a short drive away.

This charming holiday cottage has been sympathetically restored and is in keeping with its surroundings.

The wood burning stove in the sitting room and the wood-burning range in the kitchen/diner plus storage heaters make Tan Meredydd an all-year-round destination.
