  • "The property is absolutely lovely with stunning views all the way round it."

    Group of 10 of us went plus a dog. Plenty of room for all of us. Hot tub was lovely , cleaned every day. Floorboards are little squeaky but no issue really. Ceiling are low but it’s the character of the building. I highly recommend this property for sure.

  • "This property is a total Gem."

    It’s absolutely brilliant and the pictures don’t do it justice. We had 8 adults, 2 babies and 2 dogs with us on our stay, the rooms were perfect and spacious and the garden is super dog friendly. The location is breathtaking. Eleanor couldn’t do enough for you, so clean and tidy. Would 100% recommend. Thank you again for a fantastic stay.

  • "This cottage exceeded all expectations."

    The pictures for this listing are amazing but the cottage itself is 10x better than we could have imagined. The interior is like something out of a 5* hotel - I would love Eleanor and Iwan to come and decorate my own house! The house is set in gorgeous, peaceful surroundings. We were blessed with amazing weather, which made it even more serene. The location is perfect - 20 minutes away from Bala and Betwsy-y-Coed, and 50 minutes away from Portmeirion. We visited all of these places and the drive there was even gorgeous - no motorways, just country roads and amazing views. I would recommend the white water rafting in Bala and zip world coaster in Betwsy-y-Coed for the adrenaline junkies (best to book in advance if you are visiting on the weekend). Portmeirion (£15 per adult for entry) and the Swallow Fails trail for those who want something a bit more laid back. The cooking facilities, and amenities in this property are incredible. From the high-tech coffee machine, to the Foosball table and the big 12 person table in the kitchen.. we couldn't have wanted for anything more! Thank you for being such amazing hosts, and for giving me and my family a trip to remember. We will definitely be back!

  • "We had a fantastic weekend at this property."

    The home was modern yet cosy! All bedrooms were comfortable and clean and provided us with individual towels. The living space (kitchen and living rooms) were spacious and perfect for a large party staying. The Kitchen was very well equipped and provided us with absolutely everything we could need. The hot tub was perfect for us, it was a great place to sit and relax and take in the gorgeous views. The owner of this property was lovely, very helpful and kind to us. She went out of her way to check everything was ok. We will hope to definitely return here in the future Thank you for such a lovely weekend :)

    From night one we felt at home. We drove away looking forward to booking again for next year. Usually we leave a holiday thinking ‘we will try somewhere new next time’ but with Cefn nannau we just found it perfect. Gorgeous walks and scenery nearby.

  • "The location was perfect."

    Good directions to get there, very private and plenty of parking with a large secure garden.The owners Eleanor and Iwan could not do more to make sure we had everything we needed for a family holiday. We had all age ranges from a 7 week old baby to 84 year old grandma. The hot tub was wonderful and kept very clean and maintained as was the whole house. So much thought has been put in to the home with high quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The 3 new Valais Blacknose sheep in the Orchard were a delight to observe and got much attention from our toddler! Members of our group climbed mountains, white water rated, surfed Snowdonia, visited Portmerion along with many other activities. Just a great holiday! Thank you

  • "Cefn Nannau is a fantastic property with the most lovely hosts in Eleanor and Iwan."

    We were there to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our immediate family. How lovely it was to enjoy a celebratory breakfast with everyone around the the huge kitchen table on the morning of our anniversary. The bedrooms are all large and everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. The garden is huge space with a very large seating area (south facing) and of course the hot tub. Although the photographs on the Sykes website are lovely, you have to experience the property to fully appreciate it. The location is perfect for access to the Snowdonia National Park. We absolutely loved our time at Cefn Nannau.

  • "As a tall family (kids are 6’ and above) it would have been great to know that the ceilings and stairways are very restricted in height and both twin rooms have very limited headroom."

    That’s the only reason I dropped 1 star for comfort. The facilities are all great, we really enjoyed the hot tub and football table. The hosts were knowledgeable and friendly. They took time to visit and check we were ok during our stay and gave us a warm welcome.

  • "Cefn Nannau house, its location and surroundings are absolutely stunning."

    We had a wonderful big family (11 people) stay here and it was suitable for all ages ranging from grandparents to toddlers. The views from the garden and especially the hot tub are second to none and you will never get bored of looking at them. The cottage itself is a great mixture of old farm house with modern touches. Everything you could possibly need is catered for. The rooms are lovely and spacious, all with good size en-suites and beautiful views. The house is immaculate. The youngsters enjoyed the football table in the utility room. The owners have really thought of everything and make sure your stay is so comfortable and relaxing. Eleanor would visit daily to test the hot tub (to ensure it always stays clean) but this is done in a non intrusive way. You could ask Eleanor or Iwan anything and we were given lots of advice for places to visit in this gorgeous part of North Wales, I recommend you ask about the Luing Beef products from their farm very reasonably priced and very delicious. There is a small shop 1.8 miles away which isn’t really walkable due to farmland and the main road. Bala Lake is a must visit as is Betws-y-Coed. We also took a trip to Harlech beach which was beautiful as the weather was so hot! There is a hairdryer in all the rooms, towels, separate hot tub towels downstairs and a washing machine and tumble dryer and a barista style coffee machine & bean grinder for the coffee lover’s. There are two big fridge freezers and 3 bedrooms with en-suites, a big family bathroom and a downstairs shower room. It is next to one of their farms but this only adds to a countryside holiday. This was not noisy at all and they were always conscious of keeping noise down. The owners live in another village a short distance away.

    The house is amazing and has everything you need. It has beautiful furniture and decor, all done to a high standard with comfort in mind. The huge kitchen table became our favourite place where we all gathered to eat together and interact. The beds are so comfortable and I slept like a baby. The hot tub was also a favourite. The house is quite rural and peaceful. The hosts Eleanor and iwan were very helpful but not intrusive, we got lost and iwan came to our rescue to guide us to the house. We visited Conwy castle and Llandudno pier which grandma thoroughly enjoyed. Would highly recommend this place and have nothing negative to say. Thank you to Eleanor and iwan

    The house is spotlessly clean, has everything you need and more, great communication with the vendors both before and after our stay. Both Iwan and Eleanor are fabulous hosts (without being intrusive) with the comfort of your stay their utmost priority, and you really shouldn’t pass on the opportunity to sample their Welsh Luing Beef - it’s absolutely delicious and great on the BBQ! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this accommodation to others and should we visit Wales again I would most definitely make my first enquiry here.

  • "We spent a wonderful week at Cefn Nannau as a party of 7 plus our dog."

    The house was absolutely beautiful, with a stylish, but comfortable interior and very well appointed. The owners have clearly put a great deal of thought and care into both the decor and the facilities and we found that we had everything we needed for a brilliant family holiday. The outside space was great, with a hot tub perfectly positioned to sit back and enjoy uninterrupted views. We had a young dog with us, so having the garden safely enclosed meant that we could relax knowing that he was safe. There is ample parking and plenty of lawn space to play or relax, as well as further outside seating by the built in bbq to enjoy evening meals or a drink in the sunshine. Snowdonia is one of our favourite places in the UK and Cefn Nannau proved a perfect base from which to explore its many attractions. I have no doubt we will be back. Huge thanks to the owners, Eleanor and Iwan, for ensuring we had such a terrific stay!
