  • "It is a nice cosy cottage but needs some £££'s spent on it."

    Get the Plumber in to sort the toilet out. And get a cleaner in to give it a blooming good clean. Few dog hairs about from previous visitors. Also bit trouble with back door key as one time struggled to open it. As for Storage Heaters they are in a world of their own, always come on when you don't want them to and don't when you need them. The kitchen tap is a nightmare. Hot Water only comes on if you push towards window & is then just a trickle. Get the Plumber in to sort. TV would not get signal so had to loop aerial around the Mirror in lounge and hey presto got all channels. Good job I have my head screwed on as many - judging by other comments - did not! But these are minor quibbles as enjoyed our stay in a beautiful part of the World and enjoyed being in the Cottage. However, it was below par of what I normally expect from Sykes. All in all the Cottage needs some serious TLC and would be fine with a little bit of £££££ invested back in to it as prices have gone up by £150+ since Covid and no way was this Cottage worth it for the price we paid compared to others we stayed in with Sykes.

  • "Lovely cottage, very thoughtful through out."

    Could do with bit of clean of carpet / under furnitures. Mattress is bit too soft. Otherwise, 5 stars & spot on. Would stay again! Thanks

  • "The cottage was great and set in outstanding scenery."

    The list of instructions/information about the cottage was quite scant and could have done with being more informative as it took a bit of fiddling about to work the cooker hob. Its worth knowing as it is quite remote that there is a phone box just down the road to the right which has eggs 1/2 dozen for £1.00 to put in the honesty box. The nearest pub The White Lion in the village is opening soon under new management and there is a local store in the village also. There is plenty to do and see within a short car drive.

  • "There are a significant number of issues with this property."

    Firstly, on arrival we had to clean every piece of cutlery and crockery before using them as they seemed to have been put away by previous guests without being properly washed. The rest of the property had been given a surface clean but did not appear to have been deep cleaned in some time. We also had to air the property, which seemed to have not been stayed in for over a week and smelt stale and musty. The bathroom floor was damp, as was the bathmat provided. Whilst the beds were reasonably comfortable, and the kitchen relatively well appointed, the rest of the furniture and fittings were either uncomfortable or impractical. For example, the chairs in the living room were simply too big for a small space, and there were too many pointless nick-nacks cluttering up small rooms. Other issues included: - No recycling. Other nearby properties had recycling boxes but the details left at the house simply said that they weren't available. All that was available was a falling apart wheelie bin, which was emptied every four weeks and was therefore already full by the time we arrived. - Parking. We were just about able to fit our car onto the very small driveway next to the property. However, the larger 'shared parking' was fully occupied by other vehicles. If we had come with more than one vehicle this would have been an issue. -Outside space - The outside space to the rear is badly maintained, with uneven paving and overgrown plants blocking out what little natural light there is. The garden furniture is old and poorly maintained. - Towels - Thin and small. -Equipment - No vacuum cleaner. Limited kitchen equipment. With the exception of the kitchen the whole property felt tired and unloved, with little thought given to practicalities and substandard cleaning practices.

    Perfect family week away. Enjoyed the open fire every night. Great access for Zip World activities, slate mines and walks. Wish we'd booked two weeks!

  • "We found that i was hard to relax in the evening as sofa and chair was not very comfortable."

    In the kitchen area bulbs had gone and we where working with one light and the hob light there was no blubs to replace is so we would have done. On the website it stated that there would be lighting materials for the open fire but there was little to work with on the secondday we purchased some. it would do with a larger freezer as if you are planning a week away and the best supermarket can be 20 miles away, not much room for storage. we understood that the back garden was not accessible as it was very overgrown. but found it very slippery underfoot, when needed to access to get through the back door. lovely upstairs facilities beds where comfortable. overall experience i give it a 6/10

    Nice and comfortable, added little touches like leaving cakes was really nice. Small little cottage but plenty big enough for us and the dog. Lovely views and walks

    We had on the day of travelling to Wales been told our holiday had been cancelled but Sykes staff where able to provide us with a Cottage that was an adequate alternative to our original booking. A very stressful day turned out perfect. The cottage and holiday were great. Thanks Sykes.

  • "What a cute cottage in a great location, easily accessible by main roads, but situated just a few minutes off them, loved it."

    Just right for 2 of us and 2 dogs- lovely. It was really, really clean, immaculate even, and we would definitely stay here again. Bedrooms were lovely and the beds were really comfy. When they finish doing the last bit of the garden (off limits at the moment and gated) it will be perfect. Owner was really nice, he actually emailed to check everything was ok and whether we had any questions, which was nice. The courtyard area was secure for the dogs, they couldn't get out, which we appreciated. Thanks very much, super place.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage close to lots of walks including Snowdon."

    Lovely views from the front Windows and very peaceful. Small enclosed patio at the rear ideal for dogs, as was the small utility area for cleaning off muddy paws and boots. There was a freezer compartment in the fridge which wasnt detailed but was very welcomed and useful. The parking was not as described but was still off street for 1 car so not an issue. Kitchen was lovely and fully equipped....only lacking a measuring jug! Bed was very comfortable and lovely bedding. Living space abit compact for any more than 2-4 but perfect for my boyfriend and I plus 2 dogs. Thanks for a lovely stay.

The property

Cerrigydrudion 2 miles.

A wonderful, double fronted, end-terrace cottage situated on a quiet lane in the rural hamlet of Cefn Brith, surrounded by open farmland and rolling countryside.

This pretty cottage makes an ideal base for exploring the beautiful depths of North Wales, and will appeal to couples anticipating a romantic break, or friends and family wishing to spend some quality time together.

Boasting plenty of charm, the sitting room offers a cosy night in, featuring an open fire with slate hearth, perfect for those cooler days and chillier evenings.

The more intimate dining area is perfect for a romantic supper or a leisurely breakfast, setting you up for a day of adventure and exploration.

The fitted kitchen is complete with solid oak counter tops and a Belfast sink, well equipped to cater for all your needs.

A downstairs shower room leads off the kitchen and three nicely appointed bedrooms lie upstairs, all tastefully decorated to make your stay that much more memorable.

Outside is a seating area to the front of the cottage where you can enjoy an early morning cup of coffee or a refreshing drink on a warm summers evening, whilst taking in the views over the hills, fields and beyond.

The enclosed patio at the rear provides additional seating and is sheltered, forming the ideal set up for some alfresco dining.

The Rhug Organic Farm and Restaurant is just ten miles away and is the perfect place to pick up some supplies for the barbecue!

Wrapped in countryside, there are a series of enticing walks from the cottage, whilst the Glassblobbery Glassworks and GYG Karting circuit rest just outside the village of Cerrigydrudion for the more adventurous.

Both Bala, with its lake and numerous watersports, and Betws-y-Coed, where you can enjoy those peaceful waterfall walks are less than twenty minutes away by car, opening up the Snowdonia National Park and mountain range.

Why not drive to Llanberis; a perfect start to the ascent of Snowdon or take the Snowdon mountain railway to the summit for something a little less strenuous.

Further afield is Llangollen, another gem of a place attracting tourists from all over the world, where you can paddle in the river, or hop on a boat to be at one with the scenic delights.

Make yourself at home in this exceptional location.
