  • "Wonderful cottage, fantastic that all rooms are on suit, downstairs, wonderful big rooms again, allowing everyone to be together, the garden had a fantastic view off the surroundings, and a nice touch being the owners phoning us during our stay to check that everything was ok."

  • "Just got back from a memorable stay at Dale Cottage."

    This spacious 4 bedroomed, 4 bathroom cottage accommodated the 8 adults and 1 toddler in our party perfectly. The large kitchen included all appliances and utensils and was fitted with a central island and ample additional worktop space to prepare meals for our party of 9. A separate dining room included sufficient table space and seating for our party. Relaxation was catered for with a choice of 2 lounges, each with settees, easy chairs and tv. Laundry room including a washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and ironing board was also situated on the ground floor. All 4 bedrooms and their respective en-suite facilities were of very generous proportions and well appointed. Re-cycling facilities were provided to reduce the volume of household waste. Closing the double wooden gates to the driveway made it very secure for children and dogs and enough parking for our 4 cars. The village of Llanrwst was a 10 minute stroll from the cottage and had ample shops, e.g. Co-op, take aways, pubs and tea rooms. The cottage provided us with a comfortable base to explore the beauty of the surrounding areas, e.g. Llandudno, Porthmadog, Colwyn Bay, Conwy and many other places. We would like to thank Sykes Cottages and the owners Faye and William for sharing their lovely holiday home and for giving us the opportunity to have a memorable family holiday in Wales.

  • "The property is just as described."

    The house was comfortable and well equipped. We had glorious weather earlier in the week so could enjoy drinks in the lovely garden. 4 en-suite bedrooms perfect for our party. House was a great base for Zip Wire and Snowdonia. Plenty of places to eat & drink in the town. Parking was more than enough for 4 vehicles. We thought it was great value for money and would return if looking to stay in the area again.

    The property is lovely upstairs but very tired downstairs there are cushions hanging off the two chairs in the living room and the living room isn’t big enough for 8 people, fridge freezer was leaking water main bedroom has a sky light with no blind so wakes you up around 5am and it certainly hadn’t had a deep clean no smell of cleaning fluid or polish anywhere and the fridge doors weren’t clean and neither was the kitchen floor we also had the whole of the traffic from the main A road diverted past the property from 7am until midnight everyday of our stay making it dangerous to leave the property and very noisy had to have the living room blind closed the whole time we were there and not a text or anything from the owner either and the road works had been there since the 2nd March so very disappointed when you’ve booked a quiet relaxing holiday that was spoilt with tractors lorries coaches buses all day everyday

  • "As a family of seven from three different houses, we found Dale Cottage ideal for our needs with its four ensuite bedrooms."

    The property was clean and roomy and the dining table was ideal for family board games after meals .We had quite a wet week, so were not able to use the garden, but there was plenty to do in the area and within the house. The private parking was ideal and the owners were very welcoming, leaving contact details and texting to check that we had everything we needed. There were plenty of takeaways in LLanrwst and a Coop and it was central to several mountain bike tracks that our two sons used. We enjoyed our week and will hopefully return to Dale Cottage in the near future.

  • "A beautiful house and to have all bedrooms ensuite is such a bonus."

    Everything was spotless. Llanrwst is a perfect spot for travelling to the many beautiful places nearby. Lovely garden but quite steep if you have young children or mobility difficulties. This is the 2nd year we've stayed at Dale Cottage. I think a dishwasher would be good to have especially if 8 people are staying. Would certainly recommend and the owner Mrs Lewis kept in touch to make sure we were happy with everything.

  • "Dale Cottage was perfect for our holiday."

    The facilities were everything we wanted, well equipped and very comfortable. The house has recently been redecorated throughout and looked great. The decking in the garden gave us the perfect place for meals and drinks outside, enjoying the fabulous views. We took advantage of the lovely weather and location so went out each day, but if you're there during less pleasant weather there are lots of games and books to relax with, plus excellent TV options with Netflix included....bonus! The house owners are so welcoming and helpful, being there if we needed anything, but gave us privacy and space. We loved it!

  • "This is a lovely cottage especially for couples sharing as all bedrooms en-suite and are a similar size."

    The kitchen is well equipped and modern with lots of space. Only slight disadvantage is there is no downstairs toilet which could be an issue for older guests or any with mobility issues. We would stay again though as it is well placed for visiting all North Wales areas and the railway station in Llanwrst is very close meaning you can leave the car behind

  • "This cottage is wonderful and spacious as expected."

    The beds were comfortable and everywhere spotlessly clean. The garden is large and accessed by steps to all levels which maybe a draw back to some, but if mobility not a problem then lovely maintained garden. Many have complained about the lack of dishwasher, it doesn’t mention one in the facilities in the house so shouldn’t come as a shock and should not detract from the property. Would definitely recommend this cottage to large groups/families.

    The house itself is very well equipped with everything you need....including a lovely garden if the weather is nice enough to sit out in it! The bedrooms are huge...and having an en suite attached to each one makes life very comfortable. The owners are also very friendly, communicative and helpful. We will definitely look to stay at Dale Cottage again if we come to the area.

  • "There was a smell (of drains?"

    ) in one bathroom which permeated the house. Some window catches and sink/bath plugs were a bit dodgy. No dishwasher. Only one TV worked and had an extremely short list of channels. Otherwise clean and comfortable with good beds.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have thoroughly investigated the smell you have reported but can not find anything and no smell has been reported by guests previously or since. We do not list a dishwasher on the property listing and when we checked the television a switch was not turned on at the wall. We have also been through the property and checked all plugs and window catches. Customer feedback is very important to us and we appreciate you taking the time to let us know your thoughts.

    All the bedrooms are superb and there is lots of room down stairs to spread out. Loads of parking. Bit of an Ikea show home really Location is OK, Llanwrst isn’t really a tourist town and is a bit run down, but you are only 10 minutes from Betws-y-Coed and 30 minutes from LLanberis and the rest the Snowdonia National Park. The local bakery and the local chips shops are absolutely first class.

    3 reception rooms is a real treat and a massive kitchen which is well-equipped. As other reviews mentioned, a dishwasher would have been handy, but the sinks are big enough to drain a lot of washing at once so as long as you share the work it wasn't an issue! All the bedrooms are an excellent size and were spotless. 4 en-suites are a huge bonus and made life a lot easier. Llanrwst itself is beautiful and we will certainly visit again. The co-op is a very short walk away and having a local butchers and bakers makes the town an excellent base to explore the area from.

    Each bedroom having an ensuite is a big plus as is having secure off road parking for 4 to 5 vehicles - we had 4 vehicles and had plenty of space. Local facilities are within easy walking distance and more than adequate for a week away. If I had to nit pick the addition of a dishwasher seems a given and should really be provided in a house of this size. Otherwise everything was excellent.

    House was very clean and there was plenty of parking and plenty of room for the six of us and our three cars.

Plenty of car parking but not the easiest entrance to manoeuvre in and out of specially with a car parked across the road almost continually.

About the location


Betws-y-Coed 4 miles; Conwy 10 miles.

Llanrwst is a thriving market town which stands in the beautiful Conwy Valley, only four miles from picturesque Betws-y-Coed, known as the 'Gateway to Snowdonia' and which is North Wales's most popular inland resort. Surrounded by dense woodland and magnificent mountain country, this is a haven for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. At Betws-y-Coed the River Conwy meets its three tributaries flowing from the west, and the beauty of the area is enhanced by cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges. Most famous of all are the magnificent Swallow Falls, situated where the Llugwy River hurls itself into a spectacular chasm. The village has shops, pubs, places to eat, miniature railway, a riverside golf course and the Woodland High Rope Activity Centre, and is home to The Snowdonia National Park Visitor Centre, as well as being the start of the beautiful Conwy Valley which leads to the coast and the lovely towns of Llandudno and Conwy.
