    “The cottage was in a lovely country setting and was presented to be a cosy romantic retreat.”

    We were welcomed by the sound of bleating local sheep and typical Welsh weather! (Rain and cold wind!) Never letting this dampen our spirit we stepped through the traditional cottage door into a welcoming lounge/diner appointed with antique re-purposed furniture. Unfortunately we were also welcomed by what was seemingly a mass-suicide of large flies that had entered through two open windows. This not only left the cottage freezing cold (it seemed the heating had not had any effect on the old stone floors and thick traditional walls) but also had allowed the flies to enter in an alarming number. We appreciate that flies and bugs are common place in the country but having them scattered two-a-penny on all the window sills and floor edges was not a pleasant experience. It was lucky we brought our pet Cocker Spaniel with us as he found great delight in hoovering them up on his way around the property. The kitchen was also sadly in need of a refurbishment as the doors and drawers were on their last legs and the provision of cooking equipment was sadly lacking in both quality and variety (e.g. no baking trays for the oven and the grille supplied was grease-stained and charred). It would have also been nice to see complementary salt/pepper for the table and maybe even some tea or coffee as a welcome pack. There was the very generous provision of a Nespresso coffee machine however there were no coffee pods to use with it. Now I have a Nespresso coffee machine at home and I know the pods can be hard to come by in shops unless you order online. For anyone who was not aware of what a Nespresso coffee machine was then I can imagine trying to work out how it works and what pods to use would be nigh-on impossible during their stay. Next we come to entertainment. Whilst the provision of board games and family-based puzzles were second to none, the advertised Freeview TV was lacking. In short, there was no TV aerial and sadly the internet speed was way under powered to successfully run any of the online TV services. Many-a-evening were spent looking at a blank TV screen because of this fact. Apart from that, an absolutely awesome holiday despite be Welsh weather trying its best to rain on us everyday!

    The owner thanks you for your feedback. They apologise for the windows being left open by the cleaners, causing the property to be cold on arrival ,and for the flies in the property. Had they been aware of any issues during your stay the owners could have addressed them to ensure your stay there was more enjoyable. As it has been several weeks since they last stayed they was unaware of the kitchen equipment and would like you to know that they will follow this up and make additions where necessary. The Nespresso machine is new to the property and was purchased by the owner for their own use but can also be used by guest, this is why it is not advertised. As the property is self catering it is down to the guest to bring any items that they may need for the duration of their stay.There is a SMART TV in the property, which although does not have terrestrial TV due to the location of the signal, it does have internet based channels. We are pleased to hear that you found the time to spend together as a family making use of the games and puzzles and we look forward to seeing you back at Tyr Ysgol again soon. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Aberdaron 6 miles.

This charming semi-detached cottage enjoys a quiet spot on the unspoilt Llyn Peninsula, close to the village of Pen Y Graig, north-west Wales.

Set over three floors, Tyr Ysgol is a traditional stone cottage which is ideal for families or small groups looking for a rural retreat.

The house has been finished in a rustic country style with charming shabby chic furniture and period features including an original stone fireplace and cottage doors.

The side door opens onto an open-plan sitting and dining room with a slate floor and a wood burner.

This room has enough seating for six and a dining table which accommodates six.

There is also a television, Welsh dresser and bureau.

To the rear of the property is a kitchen with views to the garden and fields beyond.

The kitchen boasts a microwave, oven and fridge.

To the front and side of the house are lawned garden areas.

To the rear is a split-level garden with a gravel and a lawned area.

The garden has a bench table, deck chairs and a garden bench.

The property is located in a marvellously secluded spot, back from a country lane in the village of Llangwnnadl.

The property is found on the Llyn Peninsula, which is located to the west of Snowdonia National Park.

This largely unspoilt, rural peninsula is one of the best places to experience the Welsh language and traditional culture.
