  • "Another great holiday at the cottage."

    Cottage cosy, comfortable and clean. Lovely open fire. Back garden a suntrap. Easy walking distance to beach and other walks and Porthmadog. Lovely quiet location. We have already booked for next year.

  • "Pump Cottage has been the beloved holiday home of its owner's family for several generations."

    My friend and I arrived to find it clean and tidy with certainly no sign of pet hair or anything strange that another recent visitor claimed to have found. You can see clearly what is in each room from the photos on the Sykes website. The living room is as the family use it and is traditionally styled. The colours are green and red, incidentally, not the curious turquoise and orange apparent on the website. There's T.V. and WiFi . Mobile 'phone reception is best tried upstairs. The kitchen , like the bathroom, is modern. Everything functions. Everything you might need for cooking, dining, storing, cleaning is provided, including washing up liquid. The fridge/ freezer is spacious. There is a percolator for coffee, a kettle and teapot on the work surfaces, microwave above the oven and toaster on the cupboard to the left. The front bedroom is the more spacious. Both contain two single beds with mattresses of a supportive variety rather than the sink - into - it type. There are drawers and clothes hanging hooks on the doors. A hair dryer, clothes hangers and a hot water bottle can be found in a cupboard on the landing. There are helpful notices about the cottage to inform you about such things as the system for recycling and rubbish bins, also two folders of information about local traders, restaurants, places to visit, photos of the area and an interesting history of Borth y Gest village. You reach Glyn Terrace ( or Stryd Pwmp ) via the steep slope of Mersey Street, but you will find parking spaces on the flat opposite the row of cottages.

  • "The property needs a good clean."

    .. everything, dog hair was everywhere, the mouldy walls need to be sorted out and the carpets need to be cleaned, it smells of stale dog urine. We could only put up with it for one night and had to leave the next morning. There is way too much personal clutter to be comfortable. No towels were provided. It's the dirtiest place we have ever stayed :( agent and owner were not bothered.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Firstly, we apologise that the property did not meet your expectations on arrival. On the changeover prior to your stay, the cleaner detected no smell of dog urine. Secondly, it is also an older property and, owing to its location, smells similar to that of damp can be expected but certainly not animal urine, as we work hard to ensure the property is cleaned to an appropriate standard. Towels are most certainly provided and they are located in the cupboard. Lastly, we would like to assure you that we did our absolute best to rectify any issues you experienced during your stay, firstly by offering a re-clean of the property, however this offer was refused. Had we been given the opportunity to put things right for you, we certainly would have at the time. Property Owner

  • "Pump cottage is tiny, it was over flowing with owners personal property."

    The kitchen in particular. The outside space wasn’t secure enough for a small dog, mine escaped. The beds had really uncomfortable mattresses. The cottage is in a beautiful place with lots of dog walks. We feel the cottage needs an update, there is far too much furniture in the lounge.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Caernarfon 19 miles.

The bustling harbour town of Porthmadog lies on the Glaslyn Estuary and enjoys a stunning setting. The gateway to the Snowdonia National Park, Porthmadog is full of individual shops and restaurants, and home to the Ffestiniog Railway and the Welsh Highland railway where you can travel by steam through spectacular Snowdonia scenery, to Blaenau Ffestiniog or Caerforn . The pretty village of Borth Y Gest, with its cliffs and coves, is a short walk or drive from the town. The well known and unique Italianate village of Portmeirion is just down the coast. Situated on a rugged clifftop on its own private peninsula, Portmeirion, famous as the location of the TV show The Prisoner and the final episode of Cold Feet, is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and woodlands. The area also boasts castles at Criccieth and Harlech, and superb unspoilt beaches such as Black Rock Sands, where the sands stretch as far as the eye can see. Also within reach is the famous Zip World Slate Caverns and Bounce Below where you can get involved with a variety of activities including the thrilling zip wires and underground caverns to explore; there is something here to suit the whole family. An ideal location for the attractions of Snowdonia and the The Lleyn Peninsula.
