  • "Absolutely loved our week here - such a beautiful location - thank you!"

    Cottage would benefit from a few more mugs, a lemon squeezer and maybe some deckchairs/reclining chairs for the garden. Loved our welcome pack - really helpful after a long journey. Maybe include small milk in the fridge as couldn’t make tea until we shopped the next day. Minor things but otherwise absolutely perfect for our family of 5 plus dog. Thanks again.

  • "We stayed for a week in June, a family group of 7 adults."

    The cottage was perfect, spacious, Clean and fresh, and had everything we needed in the way of facilities, the kitchen was very well equipped. Perfect quiet location, 2mins walk to a pebble beach, beautiful sunsets. And 20 mins to Llanberis. We will definitely be returning.

  • "Lovely family homely feel to this house."

    Everything was just right, the beds, the bathrooms, kitchen and dining area. Enclosed garden for Harry the dog, and large enough for all of us to play games and enjoy a good water fight ! Clean throughout, storage space in the bedrooms was brilliant. 5 mins to the beach as promised, not too far from the shops.

  • "The house was lovely and clean, close to a pebbly beach, excellent for evening walks."

    Would have preferred to have had 2 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms, it would have been more versatile. Could have done with an extra toilet, for 8 people. However would definitely go again, very friendly family caravan park next door.

    It very comfortably accommodated our family of 8 adults. Would definitely recommend. The owners were very attentive and friendly and the welcome pack provided was very much appreciated. There was plenty of parking space which was ideal as we had 4 cars in total.

  • "Like a lot of cottages in Wales from the outside this cottage isn't that appealing but it was excellent inside and position wise quiet and we had a great time."

    The caravan site is close by but didn't intrude as there were no rowdy people .The beach is so close and despite being stoney we managed to swim and watch a wonderful sunset and skim stones - really relaxing. The accommodation is spacious and clean . It suited our group perfectly and we had no problems with our autistic contingent feeling hemmed in. Luckily the weather was also great.

  • "Wow, we have stayed in dozens of cottages, and this one is up there with the very best, and certainly the largest!"

    !! There was heaps of room and we didn’t even use the sitting room! Excellent fixtures and fittings and the double oven came in handy cooking different meals for everyone! The whole cottage was spotlessly clean. The caravan park mentioned in other reviews made no impact on our holiday at all as it was well over 100 metres away, and it too was well maintained and looked after, and there was no noise or rubbish. The owners of the caravan park were friendly and helpful. Good location for Welsh Highland Railway and the slate mines, and the beach was an added bonus for the dogs to have their morning and evening walks!! We will be back.

  • "The cottage was so clean and welcoming."

    It’s a spacious property though still managing to feel cosy. There was a lovely hamper containing some tasty Welsh treats for us to enjoy. Someone had mentioned that the WI FI speed was slow and this was a little frustrating when we were trying to organise our days out but we managed and it in no way spoilt our holiday. A few more towels would have been nice as at this time of year it’s not easy to wash and dry them quickly. We would definitely love to come and stay again in the future.

  • "This house is very deceptive, as it is lovely inside, with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and sofas, but rather dismal looking from the front."

    The holiday houses where we have stayed in Wales this year currently feel rather anonymous, due to removal of items because of Covid restrictions, and this house was the same. Beautiful sunrises from the kitchen, and impressive sunsets from the beach, which is less than 5 minutes walk away. The house is on its own plot, however it is next to a campsite, with the small children's playground immediately next to the garden of the house. In the middle of summer, this could be very noisy, so it is really not suitable for groups seeking solitude. Wifi coverage was almost non-existent during our stay, so renters who need Wifi need to be aware of this. The owners were very helpful with the one problem we had during our stay.

    Thank you for your review. It’s a shame you did contact us or Sykes to discuss the issues you have mentioned in your review during your stay or before departing. * Deceptive and dismal – we feel are very strong words especially as the photos on the Sykes website are a true representation of the property on the inside and out. Also, recently we have invested in tarmacking the front of the property. Any issues you had with the accuracy of the listing should be discussed with Sykes. * WiFi – Unfortunately as we were not informed of any problems during your 7 night stay then there is nothing we can now do to address and correct the issue. * We are sorry you felt the property felt anonymous. Removal of items in the property due to Covid19 is mentioned when booking through Sykes. The only items we have removed are decorative cushions from the sofas and board games are no longer available. This is for guest safety which we hope all of our guests appreciated during these uncertain times, and should not detract from the stay. * Small Children’s Playground - this is a neighbouring property’s back garden not a playground, which is not in direct view of the property. The property is not advertised as offering solitude due to the fact that it not in a secluded area. Property Owner

    Secluded away but a close drive to the local beaches, towns and shops and supermarkets. The house was beautiful inside with beautiful views, plenty of space and lots of thoughtful extras. We were left tea coffee milk sugar and a box of chocolates on our arrival which was a lovely and very welcomed gesture. There was so much room and an extra bonus that our two dogs could join us with no problems at all. Thanks for a lovely stay at your beautiful home- we will definitely come back!

  • "In the listing it would make anyone presume that this is a isolated cottage which is what we wanted."

    .so when we arrived to find ourselves part of a camp site we were shocked. There is a outside door in top bedroom.and stairs that lead into a courtyard garden but the garden has a huge static caravan! So yes we did get what the advert says our own enclosed garden and all.of the facilities and the cottage and owners were lovely but the advert is definatly misleading. In the end the campsite didn't bother us but I did contact the owner about this when we arrived. We found out someone was living in the courtyard garden and that he did not get involved in the advert.. He says Sykes cottages came around and took photos and wrote the advert. Overall it was a lovely cottage but Skyes defiantly deliberately mislead people. Also Sites originally took full payment of the holiday but did not book the holiday! It was only when I noticed I hadn't had a receipt that I called up..They could see I had paid but did they did not book the holiday..i was less than impressed. My complaint is only with Sykes and not the cottage or the people. We would stay again.

  • "The cottage is fabulous!"

    We were 2 families, with 4 adults, 2 teenagers and a 2yr old. There was plenty of space, facilities were great, and it was quiet and peaceful. The cottage is the perfect base for days out and lovely to come home to in the evening. The owner's mother runs the campsite next door, and she couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. We would definitely recommend Ysgubor Fawr, and cant wait to come back :)

  • "The cottage was amazing."

    It had everything you could want in a holiday cottage. The facilities were perfect for us with the two downstairs bedrooms and bathroom as my 90 year old father is unable to do stairs anymore. It was also lovely to have a separate lounge for him to sit in with my older sister, while my teenage children could have the larger TV in the enormous kitchen/dining area. It was also nice to have a TV in each bedroom. The cottage was spotless and lovely décor and the bedrooms had lovely comfy beds and bedding. The outside space was lovely and enclosed so that I felt safe that my two dogs were able to roam free. The situation of the cottage was excellent and there was easy access to a private beach that allowed me to walk my dogs on. The cottage allowed easy access to a variety of places in the area and meant that we were able to visit lots of places without having to drive very far. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and I will definitely be returning in the near future.

    It was lovely to have the outdoor table for eating and we were delighted to be so close to the sea. The only thing we were slightly disappointed with when we arrived was a camp site right next to the cottage which we had not gathered from the details. In the end it was not a problem or noisy but did wonder what it would be like in the school holidays. Overall very happy with the cottage. Please thank the owners

    Excellent for walking the dog. There is enclosed sun trap garden with plenty of space to enjoy. The house was clean and well presented with room to spread out. A bonus of a utility room for all those boots coats and dog towels! Maybe 1 point the WiFi was slow. But really peaceful,sheep for your neighbours, and provided us with a relaxing break. Certainly would recommend.
