  • "We had a lovely week - the cottage was warm and welcoming upon arrival."

    We had an unexplained hitch with the heating and warm water which resolved spontaneously - although the owner contacted us within 40mins of us contacting Sykes contact liaison- both of whom were very polite and friendly. The spare room bed my friend thought was a bit lumpy so ended up sleeping with me. (Perhaps more suited for a child.) Imagine our surprise when we figured it actually looked into Arenig Fawr - one of our favourite spots and bothy to stay in! Overall we would recommend the cottage - especially the log fire and spa bath after a days hike and hoped we left it in good order - (having replaced some of the blown bulbs too) :) Thankyou

  • "Pro: The cottage was amazing, very cozy, close to everything but in a quite area."

    the fireplace is great, the kitchen is highly equipped and you get to see sheep all day, every day from the rear garden :) Con: The Internet has it's days, and didn't work all the time - a bit of rain / bad weather and there is no internet (and sometimes even phone reception was abscent).

  • "Nice Cottage and location, parking was a limitation."

    Cottage was clean but did have a few negative points. The WC had a very poor flush! Kitchen tap loose and lacked basic kitchen equipment i.e. no bread/carving board. On balance I felt it was a little over priced.

  • "We felt so lucky to find this gem."

    The location was ideal. The cottage was warm and welcoming. There was a little welcome package that went down a treat! I loved having a fire and bath. Trawsfynydd reservoir is right on your door step and was absolutely stunning, the walk round was beautiful and it was a great place to watch the sunset. The locals were really friendly and gave us fantastic suggestions to help make our holiday very special. We will be back. Thank you Plas Arenig!!!

  • "A nice and cosy cottage, a short drive from the trail heads for Snowdon as well as the South Snowdonia peaks (e."
