  • "Min Y Rhos is a home from home."

    Richard provides everything you need and outstanding instructions, spare parts and multiple extras; such as binoculars, torches, multiple hoovers, books, Mesh WiFi, DAB radio, Poo bags. It truly is a base that has everything. He even provides deodorant, soap, shower gel, TCP, Clothes washing tablets and a tumble dryer. We have never.come across a property that gives so much. Be kind people and don't abuse it ! Leave any spares to help out and please feed the birds (bird feeders provided) as they come often with some lovely colours. Such a wonderful sight to sit in the conservatory 'like' area and watch with the radio on. Children can use the swings and football / goal. Under the stairs is inflatable connect 4 and boules. Lots of fun ! It is VERY dog friendly with a fully enclosed garden. The location is outstanding. Totally secluded yet not far from shops etc. The neighbours up the field are very friendly. Drive slowly around the area out of courtesy for local residents. Richard may or may not know how much people are greatful for what he does. May it last a long a time because we shall be going back for sure. Thank you so much, Claire, John, Callum and the two Golden Labs - Sandy and Jessie.

  • "We had such an amazing time here at Min y Rhos."

    The cottage was so well equipped, incredibly clean and situated in such a beautiful location. Our host was very informative and even provided vast amounts of additional information found in folders at the cottage. The large enclosed garden was a huge selling point for us as we have a lively Border Collie who made sure she made the most of it! The whole ambience of the cottage provided such tranquility and a well earned break away from city life. We highly recommend this cottage and we will definitely be returning in the near future!

  • "This is a fabulous cottage in a beautiful location with spectacular views."

    It is peaceful, secluded and quiet. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was also very warm, the central heating or log fire heated the cottage up quickly and it retained the heat well. The shower was powerful and the water was always hot, even with 8 people taking baths and showers. The welcome pack was very informative and we enjoyed reading about the history of the cottage. Our entire family loved this cottage; the children and dogs especially enjoyed running around in the large garden, and I particularly enjoyed the peace and quiet, the views and watching the birds visiting the feeders. We would definitely come back to this cottage for another visit.

  • "Excellent stay at the cottage."

    Unfortunately the T.V. broke down in our 2nd week.

    Thank you for your feedback. The main television in the lounge lost its' signal on Monday, 22nd May. Due to an unexpected problem our guests then had to return home earlier than their booking dates. They left on the following day, 23rd. May. When the problem was investigated it looked like the (only 2 year old) aerial was the potential problem (salt air close to the sea can wreak havoc with electronics!). A new aerial cable has been purchased and fitted which solved the problem. It should be pointed out that the television in the lounge is a Smart TV and FreeView and other Apps could be accessed through our Wi-Fi. There is also another Smart TV (working from a separate aerial) in the larger upstairs twin bedroom. The other upstairs bedroom has a non-Smart TV working from the same aerial. Both of these were working perfectly well. We pride ourselves on making our guests' stay as comfortable as possible and any problems are taken care of as soon as feasible after we are alerted to them. We realise that our guests book with us after looking at our cottage and it's facilities online on the Sykes website and we would not wish to disappoint them if everything is not quite as advertised when they arrive. The cottage is a 2 hour journey one way from where I live and I am quite happy to drive down if I can help our guests in any way if a 'phone call or message can't solve the query. We are committed to making sure our guests have the best experience possible during their holiday at Min y Rhos. Richard Price. Property Owner

  • "What a beautiful cottage."

    We had a wonderful week. The cottage is off the beaten track and so relaxing. Very well equipped, we wanted for nothing. My elderly father said he had the best holiday he had ever had. We all spent so much time in the conservatory watching the variety of birds that visited the garden. The garden was perfect for the dogs, really secure. Richard, one of the owners was such a lovely person, he gave us lots of information both before the holiday and supplied in the cottage. All in all a wonderful week. We would definitely return. Thank you Richard..

    The cottage is lovely: set in a secure, self-contained garden, really nicely furnished, immaculately clean, comfortable, and really well equipped.

The location is also great, quiet and peaceful but in easy reach (by car) of local towns and villages, beautiful beaches, family attractions, and Snowdonia National Park. The owners have provided really useful information on the local area; it is well worth walking the local trail to Seal Beach - we had a dip and a seal came to see us as we left. Highly recommended.

    It is definitely the nicest holiday cottage we have stayed in. The facilities were excellent, plenty of crockery and kitchen utensils to use. Great choice of board games and jigsaws to use, all of which were brand new. Comfy beds and sofas and everything was spotlessly clean. We had great communication from the owner Richard before and during our holiday with very clear directions on how to get there. It was in such a peaceful location, surrounded by fields but only a 20 minute walk from the cottage to the beach. We visited many of the surrounding areas, Abersoch, Portmeirion, Criccieth & Aberdaron to name a few. All very accessible in 30-45 minutes. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked again for next year. Thank you.

    3 adults & 4 children. It was the perfect space for us and everything that we needed was provided - there was even a little welcome package on arrival which was a great touch. It has a lovely garden space which the children loved playing out in. The road down to the cottage is a single track road which once we had done a couple of times we were confident with if we met another car. We didn’t get the best weather but managed to stay dry at 2 nearby beaches. There is plenty to explore nearby if you do your research. If you are a little out of season like we were just check places/ & restaurant/take away open days as we found lots were only open Thursday - Sunday. The nearest Spar is well equipped though and good opening hours. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely home and we look forward to returning again in the future.

We took our 4 legged friend and were delighted to see the outside of the property was fully secure and therefore I didn't have to worry about letting him out. He settled very quickly. Just a short walk and you are onto the costal path. We were lucky enough to come across a seal on one of the beeches when we were walking which was lovely and not something I was expecting. There are a number of local pubs you can eat from and local shops to get your basic essentials. All in all a very quiet and relaxing holiday. I will certainly be back.
