  • "Spacious & generally clean property, well situated for exploring North Wales."

    Although easy access to major roads, very close proximity to bypass brought unwelcome traffic noise which somewhat limited "getting away from it all". Dog mess in the garden was also a disappointment.

  • "Loved the farmhouse, smiling emoji says it all!"

    A lot of trouble has gone into choosing the fittings, especially the delightful kitchen (my favourite!) Heaps of space and doggo loved the large garden.Great location for trips along the coast or inland to villages like Llanberis and Bedgellert, no location seems more than 30 minutes away. Enjoyed our chats with the delightful lady who lives in the farm building behind the farmhouse, our only neighbour, such a peaceful location yet only minutes from the village and less than ten minutes from Caernarfon. Can highly recommend.

  • "The property is of a good size, well equipped and clean with a good size enclosed garden."

    Surrounded by beautiful views, great walks, ideal for our dog and so much to do nearby. Very relaxing. The welcome pack was well received. We didn't want to leave.

  • "The house was spotless, rooms all tastefully laid out, house lovely and cool in the hot weather, maybe bring your own non slip shower mat as shower floor was slippy when wet, maybe non slip mat or coating could be used."

    Other than that everything was perfect on our stay.

  • "Thank you for an extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable house from where we could explore the beautiful area."

    The fittings were of good quality and the four bedrooms all very welcoming. The wood burners were a real treat. Thank you for leaving towels but we did not use them as Sykes told us we needed to provide our own.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday there with our five children."

    The house was fantastic with all the facilities you'd want/need. There was a generous amount of wood provided with the woodburners, which was lovely, and a really kind welcome basket on arrival with various treats. The use of the bikes was also brilliant (complete with the provision of pumps, locks, and even puncture repair kits - they'd thought of everything!). Nice quiet location too, with good space for playing and relaxing both outside as well as inside. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Lovely Cottage would like to return at some point."

    massive road works under construction across the field for new by-pass, not too sure how that would effect the lovely quiet time we had there.

  • "Location of the cottage was excellent for exploring."

    Great walk along the disused railway into Caernarfon. Gypsy Wood within walking distance if you have children under 8. within easy reach for Bodnant Gardens and Anglesey Welsh Highland Railway from Caernarfon to Beddgelert.

  • "While I have absolutely no criticisms of the owners - the cottage was exceptionally clean and well equipped."

    I found that the lack of notification of how COVID-19 would impact the holiday by your company negatively affected us. For example, we deliberately chose this cottage for the availability of bicycles. This meant that as a family of 7 we would not need to bring all our bikes. You failed to inform us before leaving that the bikes would be unavailable, which meant we could not cycle as planned. Equally the removal of all extras such as books, games etc. was not explained to us before leaving which meant that we were inadequately prepared for entertaining ourselves and children. Again, I would like to make it clear that I have no criticism of the owners here - I lay the blame for this lack of information entirely with Sykes.

    Close to Caernarfon and Llanberis.

  • "House was a good location and good size for a big group however the beds/mattresses were quite cheap and not comfortable at all."

    But, for the price we go it for I'd recommend. Bathrooms, kitchen and location are a big plus for this.

  • "The cottage was absolutely fantastic."

    Spotlessly clean and with everything you’d need for a relaxing stay. It was a great size for our group of 6 and the location was perfect - a short walk from a pub, shop and good fish & chip takeaway. Would highly recommend for a visit to Snowdonia!
