Accuracy of the listing

  • "The bed is described on your listing as a kingsize."

    This is factually incorrect. It is a standard 4'6" double bed. This matters very much to us as we have one at home. kingsize beds are generally made of 2 independently sprung mattresses so that one partner does not disturb the other when constantly moving through pain, or getting up to go to the toilet. Both get a better sleep. We had intended to complete the coast path but were so tired we were unable to walk at all on 2 days and came home early. I would never have booked this accommodation if I had known, I only ever book places with kingsize beds. (you can check my other bookings with Sykes). The property owners seemed to be lovely, helpful people who obviously work very hard, so I do not understand this deliberate mis-description and breach of trust with their visitors. We feel very let down and unable to trust Sykes again.

  • "Great relaxing holiday helped no doubt by the lovely weather."

    Spacious dog friendly property & gardens from the flagstone/wooden floors to the mown paths thro the surrounding woods which were fully enclosed allowing our dog to wander on his own. Comfy sofas, beds & a great smart TV. Owners were very friendly as were their visiting parents who our dog took quite a shine to. Excellent location for touring round about including a visit to our well loved Betws-y-coed. For eating out tho we travelled all of 2 mins to Y Bryncynan, a dog friendly restaurant offering excellent food & a great beer garden (visited 4 times). We so enjoyed this property & would love to come back for a fortnight next time. Thank you John & Adele. P.S. Jaffa says thanks for the ball John.

  • "The surrounding garden and woods provided an absolute paradise for children."

    Adults also had easy access to the woods as there are mown paths to follow. The cottage has been beautifully renovated and is furnished to a high standard. Overall we had a brilliant holiday with these friendly and helpful hosts.

    We have recently just returned from this lovely Rural cottage set in the lovely countryside on the limb peninsula the driveway up to the cottage is a very bumpy ride just take your time we loved our time at the cottage the log fire is a great asset the kitchen was well equipped The only negative points we would say is that on the listing the bed is described as king-size but in fact it is only a double The owners were lovely and welcoming on arrival and the welcome gifts was a lovely touch we would definitely return

    A perfect place to unwind and relax. The property is lovely and we were well looked after by our hosts. The welcome pack was a nice touch too and very welcome after a long drive! Although a quiet location you are within just a few minutes drive to beaches and amenities, including the pub! Great walks close by. We will certainly return and would highly recommend to others. Thanks John and Adele.

    There are splendid views from the grounds, and the cottage itself is warm and comfortable, with everything that one needs for a week's holiday. The owners left us with a generous welcome tray, which was much appreciated. We hope to visit again.

    The photos really don't do this place justice. The owners are extremely welcoming and happy to give advice and answer any questions you may have. We stayed as a family of 4 with our cockapoo and we could not recommend it more.

    The owners of the property were very friendly and helpful . The property and the grounds are perfect for a family stay and the dog loved it too . The photos on the website don’t do this place justice , the bathroom has a new shower and toilet and the barn and surrounding spaces bigger than we expected . The woodland right outside the door was perfect for a quiet early morning stroll with the dog . The beaches nearby were great and just a 45 minute drive to Snowdonia too . All in all a great place !

  • "Amazing place to stay, owners very welcoming and friendly."

    Perfect for taking dogs as lots of space to walk them in the grounds. Lovely views and very peaceful and relaxing. Couldn’t ask for a better place to stay. Only addition could maybe be a washing machine to wash swill beach wear at the end of the day, I’m sure if we’d asked the owners would have let us use theirs though, that’s how friendly they were! Definitely recommend

    Great location and base for walks in Snowdonia and surrounds. Excellent facilities, brand new bathroom is a great addition and the grounds were a wonderful surprise, our dog loved the space and overall the property is very dog friendly. The owners were lovely and on hand if anything was needed, welcome telephone call to discuss places to eat out etc... was helpful for pre booking. We were pleased to be able to arrange asda delivery however supermarket isn't far away and also only short drive to the beach where there is a pub to watch the sunset with a pint. Lovely welcome pack and lots of helpful supplies however couldn't find an iron or hairdryer - but sure owners would provide if asked. Would love to stay again.

Lying outside the centre of the rural village of Boduan on the stunning Llyn Peninsula is this wondrous Grade II listed barn conversion, Nant Bach.
