  • "In its present form, I cannot recommend this house, it needs a lot of TLC."

    On arrival I had to ask a neighbour where to park, there is a small dilapidated sign that’s tucked away and hard to see, I only noticed it after a few days. The parking is difficult to access and I was warned there was a danger of the two metal (pointless?) bollards flying up and damaging my car. It was also a neighbour, not the owner or Sykes, who advised me to drive round the block and reverse into the parking area, but even doing that I was fearful of damaging my car. I had the code for the key safe, but after struggling for some time with it not working we found there was a second one that did work. The front door lock doesn’t work, it has to be secured from inside, it is not possible to lock the front door from the outside, so you have to walk past all the bins (which were full on arrival) to the back door. The downstairs toilet door sticks. The door from the back door to the kitchen door is impossible to close, and there’s a smelly drain cover on the other side of the kitchen door, covered by a mat. The kitchen scissors fall apart. In the night there are slugs on the kitchen floor. The TV system is impenetrable unless you have a PhD in Sky technology, a simple Freeview TV would make a lot of sense. On arrival there was no central heating for the first three days, and the back-up electric fire didn’t work. There are various damp patches around the house. The landing light, by the boiler in the locked cupboard, works sometimes. The house was clean when we arrived, but otherwise there was an impression of the house having been neglected and various issues ignored. I was glad to leave.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay, thanks!"

    The cottage is well equipped and in a good location for exploring Snowdonia. There's a steep lane up to the parking bay

  • "I have stayed in other Sykes cottages, we were basically disappointed as when arrived in the evening we looked for a information pack, but none, we were cold but no way could we see to put heating on there was a thermostat in the living room but no radiator heating, the boiler we assume was in locked cupboard."

    There was only Sykes number to call but the office closed. We were able to use fire in living room which provided a nice warm environment during the week, but was too chilly to eat in dinning area in the evening. The Tv was again a little difficult, had sky remote but just stated no satellite signal, we managed to navigate the smart Tv to watch programmes. Basically if there had been an information pack, even if it stated heating off for season, and Tv instructions it would have been a great help, rather than us waste time looking when we arrived tired. Also no instructions re bins and recycling other than a calendar we found in the kitchen working out when the bins collected but nothing about where to leave them. Basically the property had no information it needs a information pack with numbers say for a vet, where hospital is etc and about the house. The good points were the location absolutely perfect to reach the wonderful scenery of north wales.

The property

Settled amongst the rural countryside of Penrhyndeudraeth, in North Wales, rests this idyllic double-front cottage, Bryn Bethel.

Boasting a snug and homely interior whilst enjoying easy access to the delights of Snowdonia National Park, Bryn Bethel makes the perfect base from which to explore some of Wales' finest locations.

Park up in the handy off-road parking area set a short distance away from this lovely dwelling before unloading your belongings and making your way inside your new home-from-home, kicking off your shoes and discarding of any coats in the handy porchway as you enter.

After a day packed full of adventure, look forward to putting your feet up in the sitting room to enjoy a family-favourite on the TV, gently warming your toes with the glow of the electric fire in the cooler months.

Moving through the property, discover the fully functioning kitchen, beautifully-appointed with a contemporary black and white colour scheme and fit with a range of helpful appliances, including a dishwasher to help keep your space neat and tidy, whilst a handy washing machine can be found in the nearby utility.

Uncork a bottle of wine and gather together with your loved ones at the dining table as the designated chef cooks up a storm, or make the most of your peaceful rural setting by taking your dining experience alfresco.

At the end of another action-packed day, pour in the bubbles and enjoy a blissful soak in the tub, or make use of the overhead shower to wash away the day before catching some rest.

There are three well-presented bedrooms, comprising of two doubles and a bunk room, each offering handy storage space as well as bedside lamps, ideal for some late night reading.

If you don't fancy cooking, take the short walk to the local pub, The Royal Oak, where you can dine from a menu of delicious home-cooked meals, or if you'd prefer, pick up a takeaway from the fabulous selection of eateries nearby.

Board the steam-hauled Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway that runs through the town and embark on an adventure through the glorious landscape of Snowdonia National Park, where craggy peaks, glistening lakes and rolling moorland offer a wealth of walking, cycling and hiking trails.

Spend the afternoon visiting the picture-perfect village of Portmeirion, where breathtaking Italianate architecture decorates the streets, providing a lovely escape from reality, whilst the nearby sands of Harlech Beach are perfect for a seaside retreat.

For an adventure to Wales that you'll remember for years to come, choose Bryn Bethel.
