  • "We stayed here last year and it was great!"

    This year though,there were problems. Main one was some guy working in,and staying in the flat below. He parked his truck right across our way in,making us go the long way around,and he SNORED very,very loudly every night! some mornings his friend was there and they made a lot of noise in the mornings.There was no hot water on the first day and the microwave was DISGUSTING! The bedside lamp did not work,the wall light above the desk did not work and the fridge froze everything solid,bursting the milk cartons etc. .After a very tough year,we needed a break. We needed peace and we neede to relax. We got none of these. We probably wont be back.

  • "We phoned sykescottages up at 5pm and booked cottage for the next day very short notice and sykes was very helpful in this matter."

    The cottage itself was very clean and a great place to stay. Only one thing and that is there was not any sharp knifes or scissors

  • "Really fantastic views of the sea and the mountains from the roof terrace."

    So peaceful. Beautiful area with lots to do. Roof terrace needs a bit of attention as many paving slabs broken into tiny pieces. However it certainly didn’t stop us sitting out on the terrace enjoying the views. Very comfortable accommodation with everything you could need. Certainly visit again.

  • "The accommodation was pretty good and was better than we thought we'd get in that price range."

    One or two little niggles - not particularly serious - 1) There were an adequate number of saucepans, etc, but only the milk pan had a lid. 2) the saucepans had been left dirty. Aside from the above - all good - wonderful view - difficult to find, though.

    The cottage itself was perfect, with a view... and some sheeps :) a perfect place to stay and to visit Snowdonia.

  • "Compact studio flat a very useful pied-a-terre in northern Snowdonia."

    Off grid seclusion in a quiet rural location. The property was cleaned so thoroughly after our departure that we were reunited with lost property as soon as possible. The only negative for the cottage would be that new patio furniture is needed and a bit of TLC for the patio itself.

  • "Beautiful spot on a sheep farm."

    Very quiet if a bit remote. Access is not ideal as it is down a bumpy single lane farm track through fields but if you want peace and quiet and have good suspension on your car, it's a perfect location. You are close enough to amenities such as supermarkets and petrol stations although I wouldn't recommend trying to cook in this accommodation as there are only two electric rings which are situated on the draining board of the sink which gets quite hot if in use. There is a combination microwave but this is situated in a cupboard under the sink, practically on the floor. Access to the accommodation is up a steep, uneven stone staircase with no hand rail so I wouldn't recommend to anyone with mobility problems. That said, the accommodation is a nice, cosy little flat, the shower is effective and the kettle and toaster worked fine for breakfast - who wants to cook on holiday anyway?! The Patio furniture is in dire need of replacement - we had to take the dining chairs outside if we wanted to sit out as the outdoor chairs were broken and the table was grotty. There is however, a view to die for from the patio and on the one perfectly clear evening we had during our stay, I got to tick off one of my bucket list items and actually saw the Milky Way! All in all, a lovely stay but some small improvements could be made to make better.

  • "Make sure to get there when the sun is still shining."

    The property is sharing post code with another property so navigation will take you to "Caed Haidd" instead and not to "Caed Haidd Bach".It is another 10minutes drive away to reach the property. You'll be lucky to reach anyone that can guide you on how to get in the property if you get there late at night ( ie: 9pm or around that time )Please make sure to inform future guests that they have to go around as cottage entrance is at the back of the property.

    I have never been to Wales before and really chose it because the week was the only one I could go on at that time. The whole area is breathtaking and we even had fairly good weather but the misty or wet days could not spoil it. We would definitely go again. There was a lovely surprise welcome pack also.

About the location


Llanberis 8 miles; Bangor 9 miles.

Caernarfon (county town of Gwynedd) has much historic and cultural importance in North Wales. It is a popular tourist spot with its impressive 13th Century castle, well preserved town walls and delightful water front. During the season there are guided tours of the castle and special events including historic pageants. There is also a station for the Welsh Highland Railway, which passes through dramatic scenery, the village of Beddgelert and onto Porthmadog. Fishing trips are available from the harbour and another attraction within walking distance of the town centre is Segontium, a Roman fort and museum, housing many important finds. Caernarfon offers a wide selection of shops and places to eat and is close to the lovely beaches of the Isle of Anglesey and the Lleyn Peninsula as well as the mountains and rivers of Snowdonia, including the renowned mountaineering town of Llanberis at the foot of Mount Snowdon.
