  • "We were a family of 3 staying in this beautiful cottage."

    The location was ideal for exploring North Wales. The cottage had everything, and more, that we needed and was like home from home. The local pub, Ye Old Bull Inn was lovely and welcoming and served fantastic food. We cannot wait to return again, and thank you to Keith for the contact prior to arrival.

  • "This was a lovely little holiday cottage perfect for our family and in a great location."

    We had a great week exploring the area and benefiting from the amazing weather. The cottage was thoughtfully laid out and had everything you would need for a summer holiday. It was also cleaned to a reasonable standard and tidy when we arrived. Sheets were provided but despite the listing, we had to bring our own towels. The log burner was a particular bonus for cozy restful evenings especially as we couldn’t get the electric storage heaters to work (not an issue in the summer perhaps but would have been an issue in colder months). The local pub - The Bull - was a very short walk and served very nice food with a good view form the terrace. We did have an issue with a loss of hot water half way through our stay as the thermostat suddenly broke but the housekeeper sorted this out with minimal hassle within a day - thank you! However the cottage does need some TLC. The garden was somewhat overgrown from the pictures and there was damp in the cottage, large enough to notice on the walls in some places, particularly in the children’s bedroom, which effected a family member’s asthma and meant we wouldn’t have wanted to stay longer than a week. We would love to return in the future, but perhaps after the cottage has had some work to address this latter issue. Overall easy booking experience with Sykes and easy communication when needed.

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful week staying in Bwythyn Clyd."

    The cottage was perfect for my partner and myself along with our dog. It was lovely and cosy and everything had been thought of. We very much enjoyed the views from the cottage and the hamlet of Llanbedr-y-Cennin was very quiet - just perfect for a relaxing holiday. The position of the cottage is also perfect for walking to see the many beautiful placed in North Wales such as Mount Snowdon, walks in Snowdonia, Aber Falls, Great Orme and Betws-y-Coed. It is also a short drive to to the lovely coastal towns of Conwy and Llandudno. We would highly recommend this cottage and loved our holiday.

  • "We had a fantastic week at the beautiful cottage, Bwythyn Clyde."

    The cottage was as described and was a fantastic little home away from home. Due to the pandemic situation we didnt have a meet and greet however we were contacted and explained what to do. We arrived and used the hand sanitiser provided and read through the instruction sheet which made perfect sense. The kitchen had everything in that we needed and the bedrooms were great. The main bedroom has the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! The day bed was perfect for my son. We were not so blessed with the weather but despite the rain we enjoyed the hikes in the local area. We hope to visit back soon!

  • "A great cottage with fantastic walks right from the door."

    A couple of unexpected bonus points were the local butchers, best steaks we have ever had and the rest of the meat and veg and the local pub. The nearest one was shut but with another around 3/4 of a mile away this was perfect to walk off the great food and beer. A lovely bolt hole for exploring the Noth of Wales and Snowdonia.

  • "This was a late booking made over the phone."

    The Sykes Cottages representative I spoke to couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The cottage itself is lovely, quaint, cosy and comfortable, situated in an area rich in history and surrounded by wonderful scenery. The cottage is extremely well equipped and once the log burner is going it is very toasty indeed. On arrival I was greeted by the caretaker who had brought some basic provisions and a posy of fresh flowers, which I thought was really thoughtful. Admittedly I have been blessed with lovely spring weather for my week at Bwythyn Clyd, but I have had a great time and can't wait to go back.

  • "The cottage is advertised as being a short walk from the local pub, which closed earlier this year."

    There are no local facilities within walking distance and so this closure was a disappointment, to say the least. We were also assured that the cottage would be cleaned and restocked in the middle of our 2 week stay. There was very limited servicing and we were left short of logs etc. for the fire. For example, the carpets in the bedrooms had not been vacuumed. The level of cleanliness in the kitchen was also questionable, and we spent time cleaning the utensils before we were comfortable using them at the start of our stay. Having said that, this was our second stay at the cottage, which is charming, beautifully positioned and delightful.
