  • "The cottage looks exactly as the website."

    Beautiful location, amazing walks in the surrounding area. We had a thoroughly enjoyable break - thank you

  • "What a lovely cottage, perfect."

    Very clean and can think of no issues. We will definitely book again for next year, in fact we will be doing that today. Week went too quick. And thank you for the lovely scones. 10/10.

  • "Beautiful location."

    Wonderful property. Unhappy that it states there is BT Vision when there is not. (When inclement weather would be nice to have some choice of viewing and it was very very limited.). There is a smart TV separate but no code to access any other channels, so waste of time. Also surprised to see "strict" Wi-fi availability. Meaning just simple 18+ viewing on you tube or similar or 18 rated films etc are curtailed.

    Thank you for letting us know you were dissatisfied with the television coverage at the cottage. We needed BT Vision some time ago as the signal at Nant Cottage was poor. However recently transmission was upgraded and gave the same coverage as BT Vision. We have removed the 18+ restrictions from the wyfi mentioned. Guests can obtain various networks (Netflics) using their own codes. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful little cottage in a lovely location, far enough away to unwind but close enough to all the amenities."

    Walking literally from the doorstep,and a bonus was the stunning grey mares tail waterfall literally just behind the house.The garden is full of wild birds and a friendly little squirrel. Wild definitely recommended.The only silly little thing I would recommend would be a curtain at the back door as there is quite a draft coming through.

  • "It was such a lovely, relaxing stay at Nant Cottage."

    The location is excellent, with walks, mountain bike trails and nature right on your doorstep. The cottage itself had everything you need, even with little touches like bird seed to feed the birds in the garden. The cream tea on arrival is a lovely touch, as is the log fire, it just made it such a cosy break. The Grey Mare's Tail waterfall is within walking distance and is beautiful. We had such a relaxing time and would come back if we were staying in the area again. The only thing I would suggest as an addition if it was something the owners wanted to consider, is a bike store so that it opens the cottage up more to those wanting to make use of the local trails. Thanks for a great stay!

  • "This is one great house like in fairytale."

    Waterfalls under the house, plenty space for the cars to park. Beautiful gardens. The kitchen is big, tidy and full of everything you need for cooking. The living room is cozy. The baskets full of the logs are great. Rooms are clean, big, quiet. Nice view from every window you look out. The landlady and landlord are very friendly, helpful, nice people. The welcome us with some traditional welsh groceries. That was great start of our stay. There is tea and coffee there too. So after the long journey you can only relax and plan trip for another day. The Spar shops are well stocked for all you need. And all trips we did are close to this lovely house. There is birds, squirrels and we saw weasels too. We really enjoy the week stay here.

  • "A well-maintained, roomy and cosy property with excellent TV and wi-fi."

    This was particularly helpful as the weather was not the best for spending a lot of time outdoors (beginning of November). This was an excellent base for visiting the landmarks of Snowdonia.

  • "Nant Cottage has modern conveniences considering it is a Grade II listed building."

    The gardens are stunning (look for the hidden wild garden through the hedge). Very peaceful location and perfect for walking and sight seeing historic castles and abbeys all in easy access. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Apart from a few spindly spiders (as expected in a stone cottage in the countryside) there were no other spiders anywhere within the cottage! Impressed that there were no webs at all on the ceiling beams and place was extremely clean. The second lounge has been moved upstairs (photos on site need updating) and one of the double bedrooms moved downstairs. Makes sense as there are two sets of wooden spiral staircases to access upstairs. There are two TVs at the property and the upstairs lounge has a Smart TV! Bonus! Squirrels and rabbits in the front garden. Trees surrounding all sides. Perfect! The property and hygiene levels are a credit to the owners, would definitely recommend this property.

    Close to everything in Snowdonia If I was to be really critical the double bed upstairs mattress was to hard for my back and did give me back ache. But it wouldn’t stop me going back.

  • "In an ideal location, quite near to the local town of Llanrwst, but far enough for peace and quiet, this cottage is a real little gem."

    If you like to know about such things, persuade the friendly and welcoming owners of the property to tell you a little of its history. Remember, this is a genuine old buidling, so expect the little quirks of such a place. There is a beautiful double waterfall, The Grey Mare's Tail, which rushes down just beyond the house, you can visit it via a gate just up the road.

  • "This is a delightful cottage, really pretty, excellent position."

    The only drawback was the shower, getting the right temperature to stay constant was a problem. Also for 6 people showering the quantity of hot water inadequate, we could not all shower same time of day. Could really have done with a few more mugs rather than little tea cups.

    Just a minute walk to the waterfall. When you open the gate you get the stream. Photos don’t do any justice to this place. May be it’s good because you will be surprised when you go to this place. I don’t think anyone will be disappointed after going to this place. We went in May 2021 and booked the same place again in May 2022. We enjoyed every bit of it. Landlord is so friendly and joyful.

  • "We booked this last minute as a couple of add on days to a break in Anglesey."

    The cottage is lovely, sixteen hundreds appearance tastefully improved to include all the modern requirements of a holiday let without detracting from any of the period features. Good usable spaces in idyllic surroundings. WiFi and TV signal we're both good but we had no mobile reception in case that's important to some. There was a BT landline available for a small charge. The cottage was well equipped with all bedding, towels, soaps etc. plus a welcome pack of scones with jam and cream. This is a charming property with many unique features, I don't think I have ever taken so many pictures of a holiday let before. Would especially suit keen walkers. Will definitely be going back.

    And even when there was a small misunderstanding upon arrival (our fault) there was someone on the other end of the telephone to help and who sorted the problem out immediately. The cottage was immaculately turned out and was everything and more that we had expected from the website and the reviews. We would not hesitate to recommend Sykes or use them again - excellent and thank you for a fantastic week.

    Easy access to Conwy , Llandudno, Betwys Coed , Portmeirion and many more lovely little places. The Cottage was very quaint lovely big kitchen with everything you need a nice log burner with basket of logs but if arriving in the dark you could possible miss it , the owners were very friendly there was a lovely cream tea ,a pint of milk tea ,coffee , sugar just what you need after the journey.

  • "This is simply a stunning cottage, large and spacious rooms, well furnished and equipped with everything that is required, it also has a lovely front garden with a bench in front of the cottage to enjoy the scenery and relax in the sun, there is also a pretty sheltered side garden reached by going through a arch cut into the hedge, comple with another bench to relax and enjoy the birdsong."

    We were greeted by the owners and the scones and cream / jam that also greeted us were delicious, fresh milk and tea / sugar / two types of coffee. A lot of thought has gone into the many little extras that are in abundance in the cottage, plenty of toilet rolls / small travel bottles of body wash / shampoo and hand body lotion / shower cap in the bathroom, The cottage itself is very isolated on the edge if the forest and with steep incline roads going of all around it but it's very quiet and peaceful, it is reached by a little bridge over a stream and has a gate to open on entrance and departure every time, a larger vehicle could possibly have difficulty with this as the bridge is narrow and the entry / road has limited space to manoeuvre it is also positioned just after turning a bend. If you don't like or are not use to comple darkness then I'd suggest taking a night light as it is extremely dark once the lights are out. The cottage was situated close enough to everything we wanted do and see, the large fridge freezer made food shopping easy as we did one main shop at Tesco in porthmadog for our week's stay. This is definitely a place I'd return to.

  • "Fabulous cottage in a gorgeous quiet location."

    Very well stocked/equipped kitchen, with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Pretty gardens too. It was ideal for our family including our two young, noisy granddaughters! No neighbours to disturb! Cosy wood burner for the chilly evenings. The only downside ( and I’m being very picky here) is the bathroom is located downstairs next to the utility room, which is a bit of a trek in the middle of the night from the back bedroom. However There is a cloakroom attached to the main front bedroom which is obviously handy. All in all a lovely holiday was had, and if we come back to the area, we will definitely stay at the cottage again.

    The TV and wi-fi both work well and there is a DVD player but we were unable to get a phone signal. The gardens are well maintained and lovely to sit in on a sunny day. For when it is chilly in the evenings, there is a log burner which comes with a supply of kindling and logs to last the week. The cottage is pleasantly situated in forest near to a number of mountain biking trails and pleasant walks. There is an impressive waterfall on the doorstep. The local town is a few minutes away and has a fair sized Co-op supermarket with free parking for all your grocery needs. The cottage is also within easy driving distance of all North Wales attractions. I couldn't recommend it more for a tranquil and enjoyable vacation,

    !! It was absolutely spotless when we arrived and the owners were there to welcome us and show us around. They also left us a cream tea which was very kind and much appreciated after a long drive.

    ! We lay in bed listening to the birds and waterfalls,which were literally right outside the door. Well worth the very short walk to look at. Close to many walks, you can walk from the front door through amazing forests and hills.We did two mountains while we were there,Moel Siabod and Snowdon as we didn't finish it on a previous visit. Deep snow on top but a clear sunny day.Well worth the hike.The cottage has it's own heartbeat that envelopes you in a very warm,squishy hug. The little noises in the attic makes it even more amazing as you know how close you are to nature. We had our almost adult children with us and they were blown away by the age and feel of the house.Would recommend it to anyone looking for complete rest and relaxation or you can use it as a base for many extreme activities.Great bike tracks start right opposite.
