  • "House overall was lovely, lots of space and bathrooms!"

    Great location for the beach and town We did have a few issues with the keys for the garage, instructions were not clear and they weren't where they were supposed to be. This was sorted quickly by Sykes. Other issues include: Heating was on full when we arrived and the house was unbearably hot especially as it was August, we had to leave again as it was too hot to stand and explored the town instead. Loose tiles in the living room near the sofa made us uneasy incase they came up etc they were unavoidable to step on. Smoke alarm upstairs looked like the battery had been taken out Socket on the landing broken and secured with tape Dishwasher leaked quite a lot when in use so we were afraid to use it after we had seen it leaking, there was quite a bit of damage to the door because of this. Several beds had loose or broken slats The fact that the courtyard is shared was only revealed once our full payment was taken. Listing showed it as enclosed only which is slightly misleading. Otherwise the house was clean and tidy and had everything we needed.

    Nice little hidden park my kids enjoyed playing in. The property itself is great, kitchen well equipped, property clean and comfortable. Property could do with a little TLC in places. Thank you for the delicious Welsh cake and eggs. Will definitely look at staying again

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here."

    Check in was easy and the house warm on arrival( mid November to early December).This has not always been our experience . Thank you. We were careful with the heating and only had 3 radiators on during the day.We liked the fact we could recycle our rubbish with handy separation bins. The house was also well cleaned. The house has a lovely lounge with a comfortable sofa set, TV and a delightful fireplace. The kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher and spacious. There is a washing machine in a small laundry room next to a small third toilet. A metal spiral staircase leads up to 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. All bedrooms are tastefully furnished with one en-suite which was perfect for Grandma. There is a garage which offered ample space for our 7 seater Renault Trafic. We arrived later in the evening and parked outside the gates leading into the courtyard and next day had a polite note telling us we were blocking the footpath which was perfectly correct and could have been avoided had we read the instructions more carefully. Equally read the directions to the property carefully and you will not go wrong. The location is ideal. The beach, museum and town of Penmaenmahr are within a few minutes walk. Conwy, Llandudno, Bangor, Carnafon and so much more are a short drive away. Many guests wrote of welcome goodies they were given. We did not get any so cannot thank for those. The only thing we would ask the owners to check and try out themselves are the two single beds upstairs which were so creaky we kept waking ourselves and others up every time we moved. We certainly got the impression the owners care about their guests and hope to return to your lovely house again one day.

    Very clean and well equipped. We were very appreciative of all the food items the kitchen was stocked with which is very rare at other holiday lets these days.

  • "Cosy cottage in a great place."

    Close to the beach so it is easy to pop down for a bit. Also in a lovely village with a few places to eat and a couple of small supermarkets. Easy access to the rest of North Wales. A few aspects could do with a little maintenance and the sofa and some of the utensils could do with updating.

  • "A pleasant cottage that we’d happily recommend."

    The town itself is nothing amazing but nice enough and nice to be able to just stroll down to the sea in an evening. A good location for visiting Anglesey, Snowdonia, etc. We have a large 7 seater car and we just fitted it in the garage. It would have felt in the way parked anywhere else as there is not that much space around the cottage. Pros - Nice welcome pack, cottage was private and interestingly laid out with good use of space, comfy beds and mattresses, comfortable seating in the lounge, literally a four minute walk to the beach. Cons - no DVD player or books which we’d have liked, a King size bed would be nice, there were no instructions for the heating, fan didn’t work on main bathroom. These were all minor points though, none of which spoiled the holiday.

  • "Lovely cottage very clean and got spot within easy reach of lots of amazing places to visit , comfortable stay with 4 adults and two children, space for one car in garage could not park on drive as advertised so parked in car park across the way ."

    Kitchen could do with collinder, corkscrew and baking trays . Rubbish sorting a pain as there are 5 bins in kitchen to contend with and en-suite in main bedroom is ok if your a small child , very small and nowhere to put anything oh and bin in bedroom would be helpful. Other then that ok . Nice welcome basket .

  • "Lovely property in a great location we would stay again."

    Quite difficult to find. So read the instructions carefully. Some small issues as there is a Sky TV box, but only the Freeview channels are available (not really an issue, but this should be clear). The dinning chairs need to be looked at as some of the screws holding them together are very loose. Several of the glasses and mugs are chipped. All together a very nice cottage.

  • "We had a few issues with this property which I feel need to be addressed, ie cooking utensils were old and dirty looking, pvc covering on settee was peeling off and the bits falling on the floor."

    It took us ages to find the property due to poor directions. Flushing system in downstairs toilet would not stop running after flushing. Wifi password instructions were not readily found, gas went off on our penultimate final day so no hot water or cooking on gas hob for last 24 hours. Property owner not readily contactable to report these issues to. However, on contacting Sykes they were extremely helpful and were able to contact owner on our behalf and address most of our issues. Apart from that the property was good, nice clean bed linen and towels. Quiet location and security was good. Just a 15 minute walk to the village which had two really nice restaurants, a post office, two grocery stores, a very interesting charity shop. I cannot fault Sykes Cottages, they were very friendly and helpful from booking stage right through to the last day of our holiday. I would certainly use them again when next booking a self contained UK accommodation.

  • "What isn't clear in the listing is that the courtyard is shared with another house, and not for parking in."

    There is a garage for no 2, right by the house. It's a lovely house just accross the road from the beach and a small street of shops at the top of the hill. The Chinese takeaway was really good.

    This is one of the reasons we booked this cottage. Also, the place was filthy. The bedding was fine - in fact upstairs was fine. But the kitchen and utility, including the fridge, freezer, cooker, toaster and oven were terrible. We took photos.

About the location


Conwy 5 miles.

Nestled on the North Wales coast between Llanfairfechan and Conwy, Penmaenmawr is an old quarrying town now adapted into a delightful community stretching along this stunning coastline, yet retaining much of its Victorian architecture, with many local pubs, restaurants and shops, a superb golf course and golden, sandy beaches. Set on the side of the Tal-Y-Fan mountain, many parts of Penmaenmawr and its sister village Dwygyfylchi enjoy stunning views across Conwy Bay to Llandudno, Puffin Island, Anglesey and the Irish Sea, and if you are lucky, dolphins and seals can sometimes been see playing in the bay. A recently opened cycle path leads along the coastal path to Conwy Marina to the East, and Llanfairfechan to the west. Or, head up the Conwy valley through the Sychnant Pass on to the mountain trails that abound there. The sailing club in Penmaenmawr is well established and welcomes day guests, as does the 9 hole golf course, set amongst stunning coastal scenery on the lower slopes of the village. On the promenade you will find numerous activities such as a skate park, a children's paddling pool as well as a beach cafe which is open most of the year. There are also beach huts on the promemade that you can hire by the day. Also near to the beach is a bowling green and all weather tennis courts.
