  • "This property would be perfect if it had a washing machine, however I would absolutely book again, the property is in a fantastic location and is possibly the best I have stayed in after holidaying with Sykes for over ten years."

    The accommodation is fabulous with large well appointed rooms, and a totally secure garden for our dogs. It is within easy walking distance to Porthmadog with a good choice of cafes and restaurants and Cadwaladers ice cream parlour is a must ! and borth y gest ( sea view restaurant) which is stunning and further afield to criccieth you must eat at Dylan’s !! and train station at the end of the road to take you to Pwhelli and Caernarfon. Thank you to Mark and Jo for a wonderful stay, we will be back !

    Thank you so much for your feedback we are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed the property and Porthmadog. Thanks for the helpful tips for other guests too. We very much look forward to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The twin room downstairs would not have been suitable for 2 adults."

    Narrow beds, little space & insufficient storage. Should be listed as a childrens room. Our 89 year old mother struggled due to the height and width of the beds. One reason for choosing the property was to ensure that she had a downstairs room with toilet facilities on the same floor.

    We were sorry to hear that the downstairs bedroom did not come up to your expectations and that your mother struggled with the beds; had you let us know we may have been able to help with a solution. They are standard height beds and the images are shown on the website. The downstairs bedroom has a double wardrobe and a good size chest of drawers. We would always encourage anyone who has special requirements to contact Sykes ahead of booking to clarify any information regarding the property. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at 2 Pensyflog Barns."

    Well positioned for exploring Snowdonia, the Llynn Penninsula and the wider area. The property is modern, clean and well provisioned (A washer/dryer was the only absent item of note for those staying for a week or longer). There are several cottages in the terrace and being a modern conversion the walls are not brilliantly insulated. Our stay was slightly blighted by a group of lads in No 1 on a stag weekend which involved partying until 3am on our first two nights - not great, but no fault of the owners of No 2

  • "House was amazing such attention to detail and great facilities."

    The owners have thought really carefully about what you need for a comfortable holiday. A thoughtful welcome gift on arrival. A real gem! Location great with some fabulous walks in the area. We were lucky with the weather and even managed to use the outside space. Big thanks for the use of a beautiful house.

  • "The property was absolutely brilliant."

    Exactly as described and perfect for a few days in North Wales. The bedroom was really comfy and plenty of room to assemble our baby’s cot. Kitchen had all we needed to cook a couple of meals. Plenty of flyers and info to inspire places to visit. Brilliant location for exploring both sides of the coast. We hope to stay again

  • "The Robert accommodation we have stayed in."

    Everything you needed was provided. Excellent location. Modern decor would love to know the colour used in the downstairs bathroom as the wife now wants to redecorate our living room with it. Will be back at some point.

    Many thanks for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed staying at the barns. We will send you details of the paint colour. We look forward to welcome you back on your return visit. Best Regards, Property Owner

  • "The WiFi wasn’t really up to expectation."

    Sometimes the screen on the main tv would hang and we were unable to watch when mirroring from an IPad. All 4 of us had IPads and there were times that we couldn’t get the internet. Not a major criticism as the accommodation was so good, just a minor irritation. The top bathroom needs a shaver socket like the one in the master bathroom, as we had to share to be able to recharge our toothbrushes. Fortunately, I wet shave. Again, a minor inconvenience

    We contacted BT and there was a problem with the Wi-fi connection at the exchange and this has now been rectified; thank you for bringing it to our attention. Property Owner

  • "We loved staying at this very well equipped and beautifully presented ted barn."

    . If we had to be picky I would say no washing machine for long stay let's.. And the lawn had just be mowed before our arrival and must have been wet as our little westie ended up green the moment she ventured out! It never dried out enough for her to play out but I don't want that to sound like a moan as we had plenty of fab walks in the surrounding areas.. And it was so peaceful there.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased you loved staying at Pensyflog Barns and had a lovely holiday. Regarding the washing machine we will make sure the property description says that there is no washing machine at the property so that future guests are not disappointed. Property Owner

  • "The only item we really needed was a clothes airer to hang wet clothes, as we had to use bathrooms, garden furniture and walls."

    Otherwise a very luxurious, well stocked and furnished house.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are glad the property exceeded your expectations and you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the clothes airer this is something we had not though of, but we have now added one and pegs which we hope that future guests will find useful Property Owner

    The door to the bedroom wouldn’t open passed the bed so had to move over etc
