    Loved the hot tub Nd pool table. ( though it was little hard due to space to play pool). Good view and private. Would definitely recommend.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Maes Madog."

    The place was a perfect base for our trip to Wales and situated perfectly for climbing the mountain and other activities nearby. The property was really clean and well stocked. And the Jacuzzi was incredible for our sore legs after the climb. Also the games room was an added bonus. It's a 10 minute drive into Betws-y-Coed which has plenty of choice for places to eat and camping/hiking gear shops should you need it. I would highly recommend staying here and we will definitely be staying again in the future

    The property was clean and comfortable with excellent facilities and the location was perfect for our adult family group. The double and king sized beds were comfy but one of our group thought the super king and twin beds were far too soft.

    We have just returned from a fabulous week at Maes Madog. Four Adults and three children. Great cosy warm cottage with ample room for us all and everything spotlessly clean. Lovely welcome gifts were much appreciated. Fantastic hot tub which we used each evening to chill and relax and an unexpected superb new BBQ and seating area. The boys loved the pool table. We loved the location and had some great day trips including Llandudno and Snowdon, Bala lake and the Llyn peninisula. Lovely owner Jane is just a phone call away to deal promptly with any queries or issues. We would dearly love to return one day. Such a peaceful idyllic location. Thankyou.

    The cottage was lovely and clean and had all the equipment needed for cooking etc . There was a brand new BBQ area with seating under cover which wasn’t mentioned in the cottage info , the BBQ was gas The photos advertised don’t do the Cottage justice , they could do with being updated The double bedroom downstairs was a very small double but it does have its own toilet and shower , the twin room and double upstairs have to share and the very large bedroom upstairs has its own We went as a family myself and husband , 3 sons and two of their partners , we will definitely go again , the communication with the host was very good too and she left us a lovely welcome gift of wine, Prosecco , welsh biscuits and chocolates, Thankyou

    Location of the property is great, it is on a private lane and just over a mile out of Betws-y-Coed, plenty to do in the local towns and coastal areas. The cottage itself was clean and spacious, had plenty of towels and all amenities as described. Topped off by the hot tub in the large garden with views over a small valley. Will be back.

    It is off the beaten track with wonderful views and very peaceful with only the wildlife for company. The cottage had plenty of room for the eight of us and the kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed.The only negative was the Extractor fan above the Hob was not working so when we were cooking we had to open the back door. The Hot tub was a real bonus and great to use after a hard day on the mountains whilst the Pool table gave all the entertainment we needed in the evening.

    The old farmhouse has been extended with a modern kitchen, and when the heating failed (it was a cold week with snow - in April!) the owner was helpful and ensured the issue was fixed swiftly. Where we felt let down was in the description of the en suite in the upstairs double bedroom, which clearly stated there was a WC when in fact there wasn't. This led to a lack of privacy which was not ideal in a multi-generational holiday. As is often the case in holiday homes there was no food storage space other than the fridge/freezer, this is a common complaint. Overall we were happy with the accommodation and enjoyed our stay, and the hot tub was a great success (and so well maintained).

    We really enjoyed the pool table and hot tub! The log burner was a challenge to start with (even though we ourselves have one) but we eventually found some dry wood and got it going! We were a group of 8 and we all had enough space to be together and to have a successful long weekend. There are some gorgeous walks and plenty of places to explore..

Items that need attending to: Front door sticks on floor, hard to open Poor lighting from front doot to carpark Wall to upstairs WC has glazing so people can see inside when you are inside No storage space in kitchen for food as all cupboards etc. are full of glasses, plates, pots etc. only fridge available Few hooks to bathrooms to hang clothes No trays for soap, shampoo to showers No place to put toiletries in downstair bathroom have to put on the floor

    We loved the hot tub and pool table and the photos on Sykes didn't do it justice as there have been a number of improvements including a new en-suite and canopy over the hot tub. The only negatives we have are concerning the listing as the pub within walking distance closed some years ago and the property has no tumble dryer, which would have been useful as we had wet and muddy mountain bike gear to wash and dry.

    We were met by Mags the cleaner she was aware of a couple of issues in the house but they were never replaced. There were quite a few light bulbs that needed replacing. One of the pool cues were broken. Some kitchen utensils needed replacing and needs a bigger frying pan. We booked the farm house where no pets were allowed on reading guests comments some had allowed the neighbours cat into the house and my brother is allergic to the. I do feel that a dryer needs to put in the house we had to put wet washing on the radiators. There were logs for the Woodburner but we had to go to the village shop to buy kindle and fire lighters. These were messages I had to ask about.

The only downside was the log burner, although Jane was very accommadating and brought use logs and got logs delivered the next day, they were very wet so the fire never really got going, the heating only came on for several hours a day which left us quite cold. The whole cottage was clean and has all facilities to cook, the dish washer was a bonus. The hot tub was a treat and we didn’t really move from there.

    Location wise it is fantastic for exploring Snowdonia, albeit it is a very small, narrow, extremely steep hill you go up to get to the property (all part of the adventure). We had a Tesco delivery to supply us with all our food and drink for our visit. There are small Spar Supermarkets in the villages but you need to go to Porthmadog or Bangor to get to the bigger supermarkets. The rooms are lovely and spacious, yet cosy at the same time. Lots of period features including the original stove in the pool room, a wood burner, lovely wooden furniture in the bedrooms contrasted with modern kitchen and bathrooms. The hot tub was a super treat. I was adamant that visiting in February, we wouldn't me making use of it. Oh was I so wrong, I was the first one in there every night and the whole group of us used it each day. The kitchen has all the equipment you need to be able to stay in a cook evening meals for 8 and the dishwasher also meant breakfast dishes could be washed and ready for evening meals. Good size fridge freezer and the hob and oven were amazing - 4 gas rings, a griddle, a warmer, 2 ovens and a grill and a warming drawer for the plates! The only down side I would say is if you are above 5'3" be prepared to keep ducking your head to get through doorways. This is a 300 year old cottage, what do you expect!

Inside are cosy, open plan living spaces where you can cook meals together, discuss the day’s excursions over dinner, or relax with a glass of wine and a bit of late-night TV before bed. Comfy bedrooms offer the perfect place to rejuvenate with a good night’s sleep, and three properties have bath tubs where you can relax with a long soak after a busy day. Surrounding the cottages are delightful grounds with stunning views, pretty flower beds and outdoor dining areas full of ancient oak trees and abundant birdlife. You can relax in the sunshine, accompanied by the soothing sounds of birdsong and Afon Euarth which runs nearby. The village of Capel Garmon has a local pub, which can be reached in a 15-minute walk, and the popular neighbouring village of Betws-y-Coed has a good collection of shops and pubs of its own. It also has a brilliant mountain bike centre and, as the cottages are set in the Snowdonia National Park, the surrounding area is also full of excellent walking opportunities. An excellent holiday base for groups exploring North Wales, and seeking a relaxing country retreat!
