  • "We stayed in the cottage for 5 nights, the cottage was clean, cosy and warm."

    The cottage is in a beautiful quiet location, so it was a perfect place to relax and get away for a relaxing break. We enjoyed watching the stars at night from our bedroom window and relaxing next to the electric wood burner after a long day of walking.The owners were also very lovely and attentive. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who enjoys peace and tranquility.

  • "Although the cottage was very comfortable and the owners superb we feel Sykes Cottages themselves were lacking when it came to communication."

    We asked questions by e mail because we could not get through on the phone , which , to this day have not been answered. However as soon as we had the owners’ details and we telephoned they could not have been more helpful and welcoming , and we enjoyed our stay at their cottage immensely .

  • "I had queries regarding the arrival time which I put to Sykes' representative."

    The representative said she would contact the owner with the queries and come back to us with a reply. However, she did not, but instead sent an email the next day saying they were not able to accommodate our request. In fact the owner of the cottage telephoned and let us know the change of arrival time was owing to longer cleaning times of the cottage because of Covid. She was helpful and let us arrive 1 1/2 hours earlier. The cottage was out in the mountains and countryside and it was difficult to arrive in the dark and find the cottage - if it had been later it would have been even more difficult. I am the carer for a disabled person and this was a difficult situation. Perhaps there should be a longer interval between guests to allow an earlier arrival time? The cottage was lovely and well equipped and comfortable for two people, even though quite small. The surrounding countryside was beautiful, with walks all around and in a very peaceful setting. It was a really relaxing stay and (apart from an earlier arrival time, which is due to the very difficult times we are in) everything was perfect.

  • "The owners of the cottage really went above and beyond in making sure the cottage was as clean as possible before we arrived."

    They were incredibly helpful and kind and made us feel safe taking a break during the current pandemic. We could not have hoped for better and we'd really recommend staying at this property. I cannot commend the owners more highly as they were truly exceptional. The cottage itself was extremely comfortable, situated in a very quiet spot with beautiful views and very close to some of the best walking in Wales. It was well equipped and had everything we needed for a calm relaxing holiday.

  • "Every time my wife looked at the cottage from her PC she was inundated with emails - she will not be using Sykes again."

    As I booked the holiday from my PC I found that my personal calendar on my phone updated from yourselves with this holiday - obviously double booking the whole week. I found this insulting, patronising and completely unnecessary, as well as invading my personal diary - I shall have to look at permissions to ensure nobody else can do this. Consequently I shall not be using Sykes again. There are plenty of other companies who are better in a number of respects. We also found the website unhelpful in a number of ways. Not least all cottage descriptions could be fuller. However on the good side the cottage was lovely, very clean and the hosts friendly and helpful. A very quiet and picturesque location. Had a wonderful holiday. Pity the lead up to it was spoilt by the calendar issue and a mountain of unwanted emails.

  • "Meifod is the central cottage in a barn conversion of three."

    We were on a father and son walking trip and it was absolutely perfect for our needs. Exactly as described, and very comfortable. The heating system is very good, the beds comfortable and the kitchen/diner/sitting area just right for a small family. The property owners were very welcoming, including to our dog, which was nice. The location is excellent, being away from the main roads but with some good walking right on the doorstep. There is more local information available in the cottage than you can possibly have time to absorb! All in all, a great stay. Many thanks.

    Kathy and John made us feel at home straight away and the milk and Welsh cakes were nice touch. Only thought to improve would be an outdoor box for very muddy boots but only because they made the cottage bit muddy. Would definitely go again. Many thanks, Karen,Tim and Orla

    And it still met our complete requirements. As expected, the hosts had thought of everything, and I mean everything, even down to first aid kit, needles and thread, local guidebooks and information etc..

Betws-y-Coed, known as the Gateway to Snowdonia, is North Wales' most popular inland resort. Surrounded by dense woodland and magnificent mountain country, this is a haven for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. At Betws-y-Coed the River Conwy meets its three tributaries flowing from the west, and the beauty of the area is enhanced by cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges. Most famous of all are the magnificent Swallow Falls, situated where the Llugwy River hurls itself into a spectacular chasm. The village has shops, pubs, places to eat, miniature railway, a riverside golf course and the Tree Top Adventure High Ropes Course, and is home to The Snowdonia National Park Visitor Centre, as well as being the start of the beautiful Conwy Valley which leads to the coast and the lovely towns of Llandudno and Conwy.
