  • "For a 200 year old building, it's not doing too bad."

    The owner, Paula was hugely helpful and attentive. The property is genuinely a typical cottage of its type. There is ample parking for two cars, although I would say that getting out of the drive is only something I would do with a passenger as a spotter for traffic. Maybe a mirror across the road would alleviate that..? There is a log burner in the lounge, heating of the property is pretty good and there is all the facilities you need. The internet connection is pretty good too! The cottage is ideally located to venture around Snowdonia and although you have to navigate part of the road, you can walk across the bridge and round the back roads into Betws Y Coed. The magnificent Fairy Glen is on your doorstep and there are the Slate Miners paths around the area. Lovely little place, would stay again.

    Hi, I did try to get a mirror across the road years ago, but was told by the council that they don't do them anymore as can also cause accidents. I had thought this would help too. Thanks, Paula Property Owner

  • "Very well located, fully equipped and the welcome basket was a very nice touch."

    Paula messaged us before we arrived to give us arrival instructions and wished us a happy holiday, adding that she was easily contactable if we had any issues. There was lots of space, and we enjoyed the log burner every evening. Having Wi-Fi and a good TV with Sky helped us unwind after a long day walking and exploring. Thank you Paula, we will definitely return.

  • "Wonderful few days spent in this extremely cosy cottage."

    We particularly enjoyed drying off in front of the log fire after a days hiking. The location was fantastic - a great base for exploring some of North Wales' picturesque towns and villages. A welcome basket was provided, which was an extremely nice touch. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

    Authentic, warm, comfortable and well stocked. The Sky TV includes main TV channels and Sky Sports, which is an absolute favourite for me. Good communication from the owner. Would definitely reccomend.

  • "The reason for that is that the place could do with a good clean ."

    Stained living room carpet.cobwebs in nearly all of the rooms. Acrid smell of soot in the lounge which took two days to get rid of . Chimney and burner need cleaning. Access to cottage was ok . But further from village than led to believe .this did not spoil our holiday everything else was excellent. I believe these points should be addressed in order to get ex feedback. All said and done we had a lovely time there and enjoyed staying there

  • "When you are told the property is in Betws y Coed you do not expect it to be too far to work and you need a car."

    The cottage was well epuiped, clean and had full facilities you would find at home. The welcome basket was excellent. However, despite the quality of the cottage we would not trust Sykes again. Your agents need to be honest and have integrity when describing anything over the telephone.

  • "We had a super time both in this lovely welcoming Cottage and the gorgeous surroundings of Betws-Y-Coed."

    The Cottage is very comfortable and pleasant all round. The Fairy Glen waterfall and rugged riverbed next door are well worth walking over to, (a small charge applies) and exploring. Combine that with a walk into Betws-y-coed along the quieter road on the other side of the river is a lovely tree forested riverside experience. The wild life is a joy to watch when sitting quietly on the patio. Thank you!

    Plenty of parking, when you go inside it was warm, welcoming, clean and tidy. Everything about the cottage was amazing. The little thing like fresh towels on the beds and toiletries in the bathroom, bread, eggs and a bottle of sparkling juice in the kitchen. Everything was above expectations which really made it special.

    The cottage was lovely, and was reasonably clean . The facilities and equipment were excellent. The cottage was handy for the main roads to Llandudno and Llanberis and Dolgellau and Betwys y Coed was a lovely , attractive village with a nice mix of shops. We would definitely like to return to the cottage at a later date.

  • "Our family were cozy and comfortable in this lovely cottage in such a beautiful area."

    As we prefer to cook and eat at "home" - it was well serviced, though a bigger fridge /freezer would enhance the kitchen. A number of easily remedied issues have been reported in a note when leaving. As previously reported the road directly from the cottage to Betws-y-coed is very busy with traffic- definitely not child or buggy friendly but we overcame this by taking a car to a lay-by at the end of this road where the footpath took us all the way into the village.

  • "From the moment we walked into the cottage we felt relaxed and thought it was beautiful."

    There was everything you could need and more. We enjoyed the wood burner on the cooler evenings and the surrounding scenery was breathtaking. A short walk from the property was fairy glen which was a delight, and a mile along the road opposite the cottage (quieter) into Betws-y-coed. We discovered this route as we felt wary of walking with our dog along the road into Betws-y-coed from the cottage due to the amount of traffic on it.
