  • "The cottage was really well equipped and had everything we needed for a great week away."

    Home away from home and very cosy. The location of the cottage is in a great location to explore North Wales and Snowdonia National Park, the Llin peninsula and Anglesea. We would have no hesitation to tell friends and family to stay here. We had an amazing holiday here and a big Thank You to the owners and Sykes for sorting this cottage and holiday for us on such short notice. Just perfect

  • "A beautifully maintained, clean and well equipped cottage."

    The flowers and gifts on arrival were beautiful and the flowers just added to the home from home feel of the place. The bed was really comfortable and made to hotel standard with a good supply of fresh towels. Their kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was clear how much thought had gone in to it. The EV charger was a real added bonus for us. The charge for use was very reasonable. For a working farm it is exceptionally clean and tidy. I would thoroughly recommend this place for families and couples alike. A beautiful cottage in a fabulous location for exploring all that North Wales has to offer.

  • "Our only regret with this property was that unfortunately we were compelled to have a short break when a full week would have been preferred."

    The property is an absolute gem and from first walking through the door we felt after half an hour that we had been there all day. It is well maintained, comfortable and despite the poor weather we experienced, resulting in returning back to it earlier than usual, the ambience of the place made it a pleasure. All facilities are present. The added use of an EV charger (payable to the owner but very reasonable) was ideal for us. We will definitely be returning.

The property

Penygroes 5.2 miles.

Tucked away in the quaint village of Garndolbenmaen near Penygroes, Gwynedd is this characterful, two-bedroom holiday home, Bwthyn Derwin Fawr.

Featuring an enclosed garden, off-road parking and close proximity to the Eryri National Park, Bwthyn Derwin Fawr welcomes five guests, perfect for a family or group of friends seeking a memorable getaway in North Wales.

Enter your new home-from-home, ready to kick back and relax in the homely sitting room, clicking on the electric stove and Smart TV to truly make yourself feel at home as your other half gets to grips with a superb range of appliances in the kitchen/diner.

Cook up a storm together and settle down at the dining table, ready to tuck into a feast as the wine is poured and conversation flows, exciting to plan your exciting itinerary for the days ahead.

If you prefer to dine alfresco, take advantage of the enclosed garden to pop corks until sundown and truly soaking up the countryside air.

Retire from the day as you surrender to a long soak or revitalising shower in the sleek bathroom, prior to hunkering down in either a double or triple bedroom, each well-adorned with plenty of storage for all your belongings.

In the morning, begin your adventures with a hike along the Rhyd Ddu Path, admiring stunning views over the Eryri Nationa Park and the famous Yr Wyddfa.

This really is a superb spot for exploring this amazing part of north Wales, the popular Lon Eifion Walking & Cycle Route (National Cycle Network) is on your doorstep, which starts from the village of Bryncir and ends up at the historic town of Caernarfon.

The traffic-free scenic route runs alongside the Welsh Highland Railway and offers wonderful views of Caernarfon Bay and Snowdonia.

Further afield, explore the historic Castell Caernarfon, a UNESCO World Heritage site, or head to the seaside town of Porthmadog, where you can take a walk along the harbour, visit unique shops or hop on a narrow-gauge steam train on the Ffestiniog Railway.

Whatever you choose to do here in Gwynedd, do it from the splendid base of Bwthyn Derwin Fawr.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
