  • "Machno was warm, comfortable and well-equipped."

    Particularly enjoyed sitting in the conservatory after a day walking in the mountains. The position of the property was ideal for accessing the Snowdon mountains and the Llyn peninsula.

  • "Very comfortable and well-equipped cottage."

    Great location within easy walking distance of attractions such as Portmerion and the narrow gauge railways. Easy walks from the cottage to great views across the bay and the mountains. Good base for visiting other places by car too. Our highlights we the David Lloyd George museum and Beddgelert.

  • "Curtains or blinds at lounge and front bedroom would be helpful to save closing curtains in the daytime for privacy."

    Keysafe not easy to get keys back in.

  • "Excellent location."

    Easy access to the sea, the mountains and forests, perfect if you love the outdoors. The house itself is comfy and has everything you need (except maybe a bigger salad bowl as the existing ones are quite small for a family of 5)!

  • "I've used Sykes several time before and your staff have always been most helpful and the properties of a high standard."

    What I particularly liked about Machno was the little extras that made us feel really welcome and comfortable. Things like a good radio and working clock in the kitchen (sometimes the batteries are flat so the clock is stopped). Also a peg on the back of the bathroom door to hang my nightie or dressing gown when having a shower. Lots of good quality crockery and kitchen equipment. The welcoming biscuits and pizza in the freezer were especially appreciated. And the file of information about the house and it's contents and how to use them was very clear and useful.

This lovely cottage offers three comfortable bedrooms including a spacious double, a twin and a single along with a family bathroom.

The living room is light and welcoming with comfy seating for all the family and the kitchen/dining room is a perfect sociable setting for family meals or leisurely breakfasts whilst planning the day ahead.

There is also additional seating in the conservatory to relax and enjoy a refreshing cuppa and a good book.

The rear garden is enclosed and an ideal place for the children to play whilst you relax with a few drinks after dining alfresco, and you may even hear the whistle of the Ffestiniog steam train.

From the cottage, the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways steam trains stop at the station just a few minutes’ walk away and access to the Llyn Coastal scenic path is only a five-minute walk.
