  • "Had a lovely week away from work with the dog."

    The village is lovely and peaceful, and the cottage really cosy. Some nice walks locally and not too far from some of the best places in Snowdonia. The broadband was upgraded to 200mbps fibre during my stay and the owner dropped me in a bottle of wine for the inconvenience, but it was no inconvenience at all :)

  • "Beautiful cottage that didn’t disappoint."

    Perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday and access to nearby villages and only a stones throw from Snowdon. This is a lovely city escape cottage and does not disappoint. Highly recommend this cottage.

  • "The cottage is obviously well loved by the owners it is well maintained and nicley laid out for a couple's retreat, there's plenty of info for the local and surrounding areas."

    My wife and I loved the peace and quiet and the slow pace of the village life . If you want to be away from it all but not isolated this is the place to go. Lovely cottage, lovely area, peaceful holiday.

  • "A lovely, well equipped and cosy cottage for the two of us."

    We enjoyed some scenic walks from the doorstep. Appreciated the log burner being made up for us so we could light it up easily one cool evening. Radiators in each room also very responsive and heated the place up well. N.B. no shops or pubs in walking distance.

  • "The dishwasher is useless,no instructions in how to use it so had to wash by hand except for the one occasion it worked."

    Also considering the fact we had to clean the cottage ourselves we thought the 10am check out was too early it should of been at least 11am

    Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at 3 Bryn Ysgol. We are sorry to hear that you could not find the instructions for the dishwasher, we can confirm that these are now provided in a standalone frame in the kitchen. We are sorry to hear that you felt you needed to clean the cottage yourselves before you left, we do ask for you to leave the property in a clean and tidy condition, with dishes washed and furniture and fittings returned to their original positions. We would not expect you to fully clean the property. Property Owner

  • "It wasn't a bad experience, just not a particularly good one, nor one I'd especially recommend."

    - garden was not enclosed so dog couldn't use it - dishwasher didn't work - no instructions for recycling etc - no information about what to do about checking out, whether I needed to strip bed etc - slightly damp smell in the house until I opened all windows for hours - I think other guests had not found key so it wasn't aired

  • "Lovely location, beautiful sights."

    Property was extremely clean, fresh, clean bathroom, only fault was fridge as it needed a clean. Fresh bed sheets, towels, tea towels, enough utensils for just two. Brilliant overall. Complementary tea bags and milk provided upon day of arrival. Easy to get key from safe, can arrive at any time.

    If there is anything you require at all then it requires an approx 45 minute round trip.

  • "Excellent location as base for a walking holiday, with a dog or without, especially if you have a car available (although there are several pleasant walks from the cottage itself)."

    Very pretty, small, quiet village. Very good kitchen facilities including useful collection of utensils, large oven, electric hob and microwave -fridge and small freezer too. Attractive bathroom with good shower. Wood burner makes for cosy evenings. There is TV, and the WiFi worked well (note you might find you get no mobile phone signal). Thoughtfully furnished and decorated, with useful items to get started e.g. Tea and (very good!) coffee.

  • "Very pleased with the cottage."

    Lovely location, even though a little isolated. Welcome pack of tea, coffee & milk plus starter pack for the log burner. Underfloor heating very nice. Excellent response to a problem that occurred with the oven not working properly (replaced within a day). Could have done with a mixing bowl & and extra pan in the kitchen, plus the tap water was not very warm, although the shower was very good. Did not make use of the dish washer.

  • "Directions need to be improved post code on sat nav took us to a farm 1/2 mile away."

    No 1 is now called Willowby cottage. No mob phone signal at cottage. No car parking available adjacent to cottage, nearest is village car parking area 1/4 mile away, not good for impaired visitors. Cottage immaculate and my partner is very fussy. Improvements, soft broom and a small freezer in lounge cupboard would be very useful. Regards. MITCH ***** Many thanks for the feedback Mr Mitchell. It was lovely to hear you thought the cottage was immaculate!! We pride ourselves on the cottage being a home from home get away. We have updated directions with Sykes to avoid the use of Sat., Nav., that we understand took guests past the cottage. As in many rural locations in Wales a mobile signal can be an issue dependant upon the provider and the thick walls of our cottage doesn’t help! However, using WhatsApp can enable mobile use within the cottage via the Wi-fi facility. Whilst the near neighbour has renamed his cottage the 3 cottages are clearly numbered and with the new directions this should eliminate any confusion. Parking and drop off/unloading is clear within the cottage amenities on the website and confirmed to guests by Sykes prior to your holiday. Since the feedback, we have rechecked the distance to the car park this being only 165 paces from the cottage. There is a gradient but nothing too arduous given the short distance. As you suggested we have purchased a small freezer which is now installed and a soft broom too . We welcome feedback and as you can see have taken yours very seriously to ensure future guests have the best information and to continually improve facilities in our cottage. ******

About the location


Betws-y-Coed 6 miles.

The small, rural village of Ysbyty Ifan is idyllically set amidst rolling hills and mountains in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. This is a National Trust village, renowned for being 'the most historical place in North Wales', and as the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln's Great Grandmother. The village has an historic and beautiful church, which sits on the site of the ancient hospice of the Knights of St John. There is also an old water mill and smithy, while the encompassing countryside is alive with a wealth of wildlife including the occasionally-spotted, rare red kite. Just 6 miles away, at the head of the beautiful Conwy Valley lies Wales' most popular inland resort, Betws-y-Coed, translated as "sanctuary in the wood". A haven for walkers and mountain bikers, this striking village is alive with cascading waterfalls, pretty river pools and ancient bridges and a variety of specialist shops, excellent pubs and restaurants to suit every taste. The unique, Italianate village of Portmeirion, the lovely Victorian town of Llandudno and the Roman city of Chester are all within easy touring distance, making this a wonderful base for a varied and enjoyable holiday.
