  • "Firstly the property location is spot on, its about 0."

    8 mile away from abersoch and in a good spot to reach the other beaches but out of the way so that's its quiet, the house is laid out well with a good choice of bedrooms throughout. Hot tub is a great size and is both undercover and near to the back door, Derek one of the owners attended ever day to do the daily checks but never intruded, the garden is a really good size also with a BBQ and seating area. internet speed was good at 16mg download which ran netflix fine, if every one is on the internet it will of course be slowed down. All in all it was mint, big thank you to the owners Derek and Angie for taking the time to send an email with suggestions of where to get food and other useful information and telephone numbers and providing a lovely place to spend our break. Thank you party of 7 inc a 3year old plus 2 dogs

  • "We had a brilliant week."

    The cottage was lovely. The hot tub was amazing. The owners couldn't have been more helpful. We had a slight problem with the hot tub which was sorted very quickly. We had forgotten to take a pushchair for our grandson and within a hour they had borrowed one for us. On the last day we were invited to go and feed the alpacas which was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend

  • "The house and location was amazing and it comfortably housed 9 of us and an 18 month old retriever!"

    Garden was fantastic for the dog and allowed us to relax in the hot tub whilst keeping an eye on him. We met Derek on a couple of occasions and he was extremely friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

    It is cleaned to an extremely high standard and has everything you could possibly need....and more! The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and spacious. The garden is lovely and private, with the added bonus of the hot tub! Locally there are so many lovely beaches, perfect for dogs and children!

  • "This house was ideal for our purposes, which was a family holiday, grandparents and two families with children from toddler to age 8."

    The owners were extremely helpful with requests for help. The hot tub was checked every day. We had a lovely holiday in this house where everything has been thought of. No complaints at all. Additional comment to Sykes Cottages: Travel cots do not have integral mattresses, only a board base. Our owners supplied a suitable mattress substitute as soon as we asked. It would be helpful if it were made clear in brochures that cot mattresses are or are not available.

  • "Location of the cottage was fantastic, a short walk to the pub, slightly longer walk into Abersoch and/or the beach."

    Cottage catered for our party in very way. Plenty of rooms and facilities for all. Hot tub was a great feature which we made plenty of use of, come rain or shine we used it and the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves in it. Lots of entertainment features, Netflix, dvds, board games and garden. Stair gates were a great feature to ensure that dogs stayed downstairs, would have been nice to have a door that firmly shuts to the kitchen to shut them in the kitchen for the evening, but we adapted. Loved the massive kitchen and the separate bar area, meaning we could store the drinks away from the main food fridge. Great holiday cottage and couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended.

Great location perfect settings we did have a super Christmas

    We had three vehicles and parked with ease. The comfiest night sleep ever, proper down duvets and pillows The kitchen was more than equipped and the hot tub was amazing. Do not listen to the reviews saying the hot tub man was intrusive, he definitely was not! He popped by for 2 minutes to check the water, he is the loveliest of men who is great if you need to know anything about the local area.

  • "Although we had until 10."

    00 am. to vacate the cottage, someone arrived at 9.10am. to attend to the hot tub which I felt was intrusive . The cutlery and crockery were not clean and had to be washed before use, this may be due to a poorly performing dish washer. The tumble dryer filter was clogged with thick fluff and wouldn't work until thoroughly unclogged! There were dog faeces on the grass which was trodden in on our first day! We actually had a great holiday, these minor niggles didn't spoil anything but I feel more attention to detail by the cleaning staff would ensure top ratings for this lovely cottage.
