    Bit of a shock to find a small aggressive snake in the kitchen on our return on Sunday, but you are in the country, we soon caught it and released it into the wild. We would love to return in the future.

  • "We stayed for a week in this lovely cottage, it was beautifully presented and has everything that you might need."

    The location is perfect for peace and relaxation. The only sounds you hear are the birds, you feel miles from anywhere, but in fact Pwllheli is only 10 minutes drive away. The garden is lovely and our 2 dogs were very safe and secure with lots of space to run around with their ball. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone, it was perfect and we were very sad to leave.

  • "Absolutely stunning cottage, spotless as usual, everything you need this is the 6th time staying here wouldn't stay anywhere else now."

    Only draw back this time was the problem with the kitchen tap it was leaking bad and when ever we used the toilet or bathroom tapes the noise was horrendous from the kitchen tap. First 2 nights we were woken by the noise the only way to stop it was too go and run the kitchen tap to stop it. This happened 3 time's both nights. I phoned Steve the home owner who got someone to come round on the Monday, problem was with the hot tap in kitchen, the plumber turned off the hot water in the kitchen problem solved with the noise. Although was told someone would be round to sort it sadly no one did for the rest of our stay, however this didn't spoil our lovely time in the cottage,

    We are sorry you had issues with the tap and that the heating engineer failed to turn up. On Saturdays 20th April 2023, the changeover day, the kitchen tap was completely replaced and the problem fixed. We are pleased that you like Y Bwthyn and hope this did not spoil your stay too much this time. Property Owner

  • "We loved the cottage and would have no hesitation either staying again or recommending it."

    A couple of points though, the access road to the property was extremely rough with a small stream running through it at one point, this created quite a dip in the track. It was I believe listed in the description but something really needs doing with this to prevent damage to guests cars. Also the plumbing needs looking at as either turning a tap on or flushing the loo, created quite a noise in the kitchen (another guest had also mentioned this). Lastly neither the dining chairs or the settee and lounge chairs were very comfortable, they were, looking at them, quite old (in keeping with the property I know

    Very relaxing 50th birthday stay. Fabulous bath! We love to cook and the kitchen had everything we needed minus a wok . Spotlessly clean and super comfy bed! Great location to access the local beaches and mountains. Car needed as in the middle of lanes but plenty of parking space. Sat nav sent us to a nearby cottage up the rd. However owners gave very clear directions. On Google maps. It's marked as sgubor wenol ty du. Great communication .

  • "The cottage was beautiful and very cosy, lovely surroundings ."

    I was upset to find the garden was not fully secure for the dogs, even though i had rang skyes to check this, the gate across the brook has a big gap underneath one side of it, a very large dog might be ok but a medium/small dog would be able to get underneath it, which is not good as there were cows with calves in the the next field. Also there is no back door just a front door with a rock wall about knee height so dogs could easily jump onto or over this. We found quite a bit of what could have been deer or maybe fox poo in the garden so beware if your dog loves to roll in smelly stuff. The single bedroom beds were uncomfortable one of them was like laying on a concrete slab. Beware of the shower it floods the bathroom! bath was nice and big and a lovely view of the meadow while relaxing in the bath was nice. Would have been nice for some personal touches as we have had in previous cottages but overall a lovely place to stay and very quiet, there is no wood for the fire as stated in the handbook. I personally wouldn't stay here again due to the garden not being fully secure for the dogs.

    The photos do not do it justice as to how beautiful the cottage is both inside and out. It exceeded everything we were expecting with lots of luxury touches. It has a recently built bathroom which was an added bonus as we didn’t not know about it. The freestanding bath is perfect to relax in after a long day. The cottage is isolated in a small courtyard which was just what we were looking for however it is close to lots of places, we particularly enjoyed Aber Falls and Zip World both which were close. The garden is huge and our dog loved it, very dog friendly. We had a minor problem with the wifi and the housekeeper and owner were so quick to resolve it. It was a perfect holiday for us as a couple with our dog and we would love to return.

  • "The cottage was advertised with Wi-Fi, I would recommend that this is removed as we were mostly without Wi-Fi during our stay at the cottage, we were advised on the Welcome Card that if we stood in the bathroom at the window we would be able to connect to next doors, Wi-Fi, not the best place to spend a Christmas break."

    The kitchen was clean but poorly equipped, with only 3 saucepans and a frying pan, no serving dishes and a minimum of crockery, 4 small dishes and 4 small plates. The cooker was excellent. The master bedroom was very comfortable and the bed exceptionally comfortable, the small room was an odd layout but both beds were comfortable, all the towels were good quality and the décor was very tasteful, the only drawback in the lounge was that the seating was for 3 rather than 4 adults, a single chair and a settee (which was probably for 3 but wasn't large enough), as the flooring was tiled the option to sit on the floor for the 4th (unlucky) adult wasn't there, we had to bring the bedroom high back chair downstairs. The twin bedroom wardrobe smelt musty and if the door wasn't left open tainted the clothes that hung in there.

    Owner Response: This “WiFi” problem has now been fully corrected. The Superfast Fibre Broadband based Wi-Fi was relayed from the property next door which we also own. Unfortunately, due the thick stone walls the WiFi signal (which can be prone to atmospheric interference) was unreliable. On the 28th Jan 2019, our electrician (CAT7) hard wired the master WiFi disc into Y Bwthyn. The Broadband is of the FTTP variety (Fibre connected to the property) and on testing the speeds through the WiFi we are now at a download speed in excess of 70Mb/s and an upload speed of 20Mb/s. There are three WiFI BT Wholehome Discs in this small property and the WiFi signal is now strong & stable. Property Owner
