  • "Lovely cottage set in beautiful surroundings."

    It was a home from home. Ideally located for exploring, lots of guide leaflets provided on attractions and days out. Welcome pack of biscuits, tea and milk was a nice surprise. Would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning.

  • "The cottage is in a very good location and easy access to most places in North Wales."

    The cottage itself could have been kept a bit more tidy. The place was filled with cob webs and spiders. Even to get the pans we have to navigate between spiders and cobwebs. Just adults, will be fine but for kids it was a scary experience waking up with a spider on you.

    We are surprised by these comments. Prior to your arrival my wife and myself assisted our cleaner in preparing the property. The pans were removed from the cupboard and rewashed so it is puzzling that cobwebs had been formed so quickly. The property is a log cabin in a countryside setting and it is unlikely we could ever totally eradicate spiders from the area. Any cobwebs are removed at changeover but we do find they have been renewed when we return a week later! We did telephone to make sure everything was ok and no issues were raised at that time.

  • "This was the perfect little getaway."

    Adorable log cabin with everything you could think of. We wanted for nothing. Wonderful hosts. Idyllic setting, hidden away from hustle and bustle. Friendly neighbours and great wildlife. We will definitively be back. Super close to beach and to link roads. Loved every second.

  • "A very peaceful, clean and well appointed cabin with wildlife on the doorstep and good living spaces."

    Good idea to take crocs if using the "outside" bedroom, but take care on stepping stones which can be slippery when wet. Ideal base to explore Lleyn peninsula, Snowdonia and Anglesey.

  • "The peace and beautiful garden with gorgeous stream to sit by and do our paintings."

    Also the cabin was near everywhere including Anglesey and Snowdonia. The facilities provided by Phil and Lynda were excellent and the neighbours were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this property. We always have a superb holiday in a Sykes cottage.

    Owners are really helpful and pleasant. Had a wonderful stay and if we ever go back to North Wales would definitely try and stay there again.

  • "The cabin was great, much more spacious than we expected, very clean and well-equipped."

    The conservatory was our favourite spot, overlooking the garden. It was very quiet and relaxing and in an excellent location to visit some lovely places. We had very good weather all week and didn't need to use the log burner - much to my husband's disappointment! We would certainly consider booking it again if we go back to that area.

  • "This is a beautiful cottage in a idyllic setting, let down by the cleaning."

    We had to hoover all the light fitting because of the cobwebs. The oven was in need of a deep clean and so was the rest of the kitchen. It could be an excellent cottage if a little more care was taken with the detail. The standard of the equipment was very good and plenty of it. Beds and sofas are comfortable and outside space was lovely place to relax in and watch the daily wild life who visit. We enjoyed our stay but the cleaning issue needs to be address.
