    The property was lovely and the location perfect. Couldn’t have wished for anything else. The home made cake was a lovely touch and was delicious. Would recommend this property

  • "We have just returned from a wonderful week in this gorgeous farm house."

    The scenery and views are spectacular in every direction and we found everything we needed to have a brilliant stay with a large group of family and friends. The owner and her son popped over to say hello towards the end of our week and were lovely, the whole place is very welcomimg. The track through the farm to the property is a tad bumpy but you should expect this as you are booking a property on a working farm. Will definitely return! Thankyou!!

  • "Absolutely stunning cottage, with a amazing views, couldn’t have asked for anything better, it’s in a lovely area of wales, the driveway was a bit bumpy, but it did say that in the description, so can’t complain."

    The cottage was well equipped, it could do with an information book about how the heating works, Wi-Fi ect, but owner text us to see if we got there and any questions we had, we just gave a text to them and the were very helpful. Will definitely be coming back.

  • "Would we come back?"

    Yes Is it easy to get to? Google Maps will take you to the doorstep but it’s approx 1.5miles on a farm track road. A bigger car/4x4 is recommended. What’s good? Amazing location right by the sea. Very close to Abersoch which I’d describe as “the Welsh Sandbanks”. Amazing beaches, great food, Cafés, delis and pubs (Crust Pizza was a favourite). Clean and spacious house and rooms. Bottle of Prosecco and some chocolate/caramel rice crispy cakes (very good) and flowers left by the owners for us. What could be better? Two easy fixes, and one that’s a bit trickier! Welcome book - there should be a welcome book that tells you all the things you should know about the area, best places to go, contact numbers etc. Wi-Fi - yes, technically there’s Wi-Fi but on speed tests it was between 0.7 and 0.9 mbp/s so don’t expect to be able to watch films on a laptop/firestick etc. Phone signal wasn’t great (we’re on 3) but according to signal checker EE and Vodafone are good. Water pressure - this is the hard one. The showers were ok, if not temperamental. If you get in first and no one else is running the water anywhere else in the house you can have a good shower. Anything after that and it’s a bit of a lottery. Overall it’s a great place to stay with some incredible places to go locally. It’s a great holiday house. I’ve said it with other reviews: you don’t come on holiday for the Wi-Fi so if you can get past the showers this place is definitely worth visiting.

  • "Just returned from our stay at this clean, comfortable farmhouse."

    Plenty of space inside and out for our party of 6 adults, 3 children and dogs! Stunning views with only the cows, sheep and birds for neighbours. Closer to the sea than I expected, with maybe just a 5 minute walk to the headland. The scramble down to the beach did take a little longer, but could be done with care. Only problem was the water pressure, the first week was fine, but the second week at times it was reduced to just a dribble, perhaps there was a problem somewhere? Once you where through the farmyard the track to the farmhouse was fine, remember this is a working farm track not the M6! We would be happy to book this farmhouse again.

    Very comfortable and clean and well equipped . Perfect for families with dogs ( enclosed garden) and children .Beach very close , involves a bit of a scramble . Lots of places to visit nearby . Follow directions down the long farm track as there are no signs . We saw a hen harrier nearly every day in the field on the approach to the house .

  • "A fantastic, relaxing week in the most beautiful location."

    We were 2 families - a group of 4 adults and 4 teenagers... there was ample space in the property for us all to spread out comfortably - the internet was a little slow (to be expected...) and we had occasional low water pressure, but nothing we couldn't live with! We would recommend this property to anyone who isn't put off by a long, bumpy track (signage from the farmyard to the house would also be helpful) and who isn't expecting a 5* modern house - it's homely, spacious and was perfect for us! A delicious homemade cake and bottles of wine awaited us on arrival - a lovely touch. It was spotlessly clean with plenty of towels, equipped with everything you could need. The property is quite isolated - complete tranquillity but we would imagine it's not for everyone... your only neighbours are sheep and cows! . A short, but steep climb down to the beach which we had to ourselves, incredible views from the house and garden - idyllic! Enjoy - we did!

  • "Lovely house for a get together with family or friends."

    Amazing views of the sea. Away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. Nice to have contact with the owners if we had a problem. Would benefit from the occasional sign on the farm gates to assure you are going in the right direction when going over a few fields. Will definitely return with the family.

  • "What a wonderful place, glorious views, warm, cosy and comfortable."

    We arrived to find fresh flowers, home made cake and a couple of bottles of wine and our lovely land lady had already phoned me to ask if there was anything we needed. The house is down a farm track miles from anywhere but not difficult to find if you follow the excellent instructions and well worth the effort. We loved it and had a marvellous 5 days exploring this beautiful part of North Wales.

  • "Just returned from a fabulous, relaxing, dog friendly, get away from it all break at Treffolwyn Mawr."

    If you’re looking for a place that’s full of old world charm and character located within sight and sound of an almost deserted beach, then this is for you. The property is located down a long farm track, that is a little bumpy in places but my son pottled up and down here in a mini with no issues other than gently encouraging the cows to move off the track. The views from the property are stunning and it’s a short walk to the beach. It’s a bit of a scramble down to the beach but my 75 year old father managed this every day by taking it steady. Great welcome pack that included one of the best homemade cakes we’ve eaten. It’s not 5 star but is clean with very comfy beds and Nerys and her family made us feel very welcome. This is located on a working farm so is livestock around but the garden is enclosed and suitable for dogs. Fabulous week even if the weather could have been better. Looking to rebook soon.

  • "The farmhouse is lovely and remote with the sea only 2 fields away."

    It's a bit of a scramble down on to the beach but is worth it. The owners were very friendly. Being in the middle of cow and sheep fields was great for the kids. The farmhouse is spacious with 3 seating areas so you can space yourself out if you are a larger group. Loved our holiday. 10/10.

  • "Trefollwyn Mawr is set in the most beautiful surroundings, with far reaching mountain and coastal views."

    The farmhouse is peaceful and located on a working farm. We were often greeted by the cows and sheep which provided much entertainment to our party! A lovely addition to the holiday! It would be unfair to be critical about such a beautiful place and we did have a lovely week away as a family but a few points are worthy of note to anyone visiting Trefollwyn. The description regarding the access to the property via an ‘uneven and bumpy road through farmland’ is an understatement. When driving through the farm yard, the ground underneath was rocky, muddy and severely uneven. We did suffer some rain which made driving to and from the cottage quite treacherous. This, we felt, should be described more accurately as any person who books this property who had a lower or sporty car would have much difficulty in gaining access without potentially causing damage to their car. The water pressure was very poor and we had to adjust to announcing when one of us was having a shower so to not flush the toilets or turn the taps on. Again, we totally accepted that it’s a working farm and animals need their water but we adapted and it became part of the character of the farm house! The description stated that the beach was ‘within easy reach on foot’. Firstly, it was a stunning beach with barely anyone on it but it was not an easy walk to the beach. The grandparents in our group would not have made it down the cliff to the beach and we struggled carrying our toddler down. We did this on one occasion and decided to not brave it again. You can drive round to the beach so that was an option. The WiFi is slow in the property but then it’s a beautiful farmhouse in the middle of nowhere! The above points are not criticism to the property but are worthy of note. Nerys and her family were nothing but helpful and the positives definitely out weigh any negatives. It was a memorable holiday and we would visit again. Thank you!

  • "The driveway going unto the cottage was ok until you got to the farm yard - here there were big holes which damaged the bottom of our car so a 4x4 car would have been better even in the summer."

    The owners acted quickly and filled the hole with soil but quite nervy to go in and out of the cottage though the farm yard. The water due to hot weather was intermittent which we put up with as guessed it wasn't like home - and the cows were thirsty. We loved having the cows and sheep right on the doorstep. It was an old Farm Cottage and was decorated that way and we really enjoyed our week there - one of our best holidays with the whole family. The walk down to the beach was a walk through fields and a scramble up and down the hills which again we enjoyed (but not for little toddlers) The beach was amazing and the owners and son were on hand by phone if needed to help out. Very attentive. The views, beach, cottage were amazing - very good memories so if you want a away from everything holiday this is it. No neighbours to worry about if you have teething toddlers!! :)

  • "We felt that the description of the property was inaccurate."

    The property is in desperate need of repair and decorating. We also found that the kitchen equipment was lacking- for example it was meant to accommodate 11 people but the pans were only big enough for 5 or 6, there were no large casserole dishes or baking trays. The radiator in the children’s bedroom had to be turned off as it was right next to one of the children’s beds. And the track leading to the property was nicknamed the track of doom by other members of the party. This was mentioned in the description, however it really should have been highlighted as the track was a disgrace and could easily damage cars. In addition the property was filthy. I would return to the area again, but definitely not this property. I really think that Sykes should reconsider listing this property, if this had been our first experience with Sykes we would not use them again.

    Wonderful to be in the middle of nowhere very peaceful cottage with plenty of room. Unfortunately the storm which happened 2 or 3 weeks before washed away the path to the beach although it was still possible to reach it was very difficult. The bonus for us was the location had very little light pollution and the stars at night were amazing.

    This is a working farm but at no time were we disturbed so so peaceful and stunning views but only a ten minute drive to Abersoch and surrounding areas. Lovely to see the sheep and cows. The farmhouse is extremely clean and spacious. Very well equipped. We met a couple of the farm owners, lovely people who would have been there if we needed them, not that we did. They lived in the next farmhouse which was visible but not on top of us. We were a party of 6 adults and 3 dogs we all had a relaxed, chilled time. The enclosed garden is so safe for dogs or indeed children too. Thank you to Nerys and her family. We will definitely return.

Pwllheli 6 miles.

The attractive harbour village of Abersoch is situated on the Llyn Peninsula in a region of Wales renowned for its outstanding scenery and varied walking. The village, situated between two glorious bays, is one of the most popular sailing venues in North Wales and important sailing regattas are held there throughout the summer months. Numerous shops cater for the tourist as well as pubs, restaurants and cafes. There are also opportunities for golfers as there is a course just outside the village and horse riding facilities are also available nearby. Watersports enthusiasts are also well catered for, particularly windsurfing, water skiing and dinghy sailing, not to mention renowned surfing at Port Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth). The long, sandy Abersoch Main Beach is probably the most popular beach in the area. There is a wonderful selection of beaches in the surrounding area of the Llyn Peninsula, including the beautiful and often quiet Porth Ceriad, with it's high cliffs, and sandy Porth Oer ("Whistling Sands"). Most of the coastline is owned by the National Trust and there are many remote bays, sandy beaches and cliffs, as well as wildlife havens like Bardsey Island to explore.
