  • "1. There was a general lack of cleaning materials to keep the house in a clean and hygienic state, eg no anti-bacterial sprat, inadequate tools for cleaning pans, etc."

    2. The lighting in the lounge and back bedroom was completely inadequate to permit reading anywhere reasonable in the rooms. 3. There was a general lack of hooks anywhere, eg nowhere to hang tea towels to dry in the kitchen (yet plenty of places to provide them, clothes in the bathroom. 4. A lack of cutlery to facilitate efficient use of the dishwasher - 5 knives, 6 forks, 8 tea spoons) - an extra set of cutlery would pay for itself in a few weeks as it would reduce water and electricity use through fewer cycles of the dishwasher.. 5. The kitchen knives need sharpening! (As pointed out in the feedback in the Visitor Book some time ago!) 6. We were unable to return the keys to the key safe, as the bunch simply prevented that safe from being closed - also, I struggled to open the door on the key safe as the spring was so strong - it should be recognised that older people have less strength in their fingers.!) We had to remove the front door key and put that in the safe and leave the rest of the keys in the house. 7. Waste paper baskets in the bedroom would be beneficial. 8. A hook to hold the back door open when the weather is warm would be appreciated. 9. There was no indication as to what to do with food waste - other properties in the area appeared to have food caddies. It is unacceptable to dispose of food and compostable material in general waste in today’s world! 10. The instructions for the TV were completely inadequate - we spent more time trying to select programmes than actually watching them. We offer these as suggestions, not complaints! We have our own holiday cottage in Cumbria and over many years have realised what makes an adequate property somewhere really comfortable and usable.

  • "Very clean and comfortable."

    View from the living room is fantastic. Great garden for our greyhound to run round. Only downside was lack of washing machine and a freezer.

  • "Ceris is a lovely holiday cottage to stay in."

    Conveniently close to facilities but out of the way enough to be quiet. The welcome pack of tea coffee sugar milk and Welsh cakes was much appreciated. The only one improvement would be a washing machine.

  • "The property was very good."

    The bed linen and towels nice and clean and fresh. Hot water never a problem. Issues with TV which lost its signal but eventually found a solution. When we were there the bins were not collected. The gardens are secure for dogs.

  • "Very pleasant to stay at this property, with most requirements provided."

    Good shower, comfortable beds and very clean throughout. Welcome Welsh Scones a lovely touch and very tasty. Information folder a little out of date and lacked that personal touch which other property owners leave. Good weather, but no umbrella for the table, so no shade and lacked outdoor seating, as the picnic table is not comfortable or suited to everyone.

  • "The garden is great size but it needs a step from the patio down to the grass perhaps with a rail/handle."

    There isn't a washing machine either so take extra for laundrette in Porthmadog. Had a few issues 1st week and although I called Sykes and owner dealt with things but I'm not sure we'd return. The bottom oven door doesn't open all way and you can't move the shelves in oven. However the beach at black rock sands is dog friendly and goes on for miles, the trains running at bottom of garden were good, the neighbour has a horse roaming between one side and other field which runs along bottom of garden there is fencing and bushes inbetween if you have dogs that are reactive.

  • "Reluctant to review honestly as do not want everyone to be going there."

    We had a great stay. Back garden is now secure so dog able to run free.

  • "The front bedroom smelt very damp and fusty/musty."

    The back bedroom had a damp patch, in the corner near the window. The showerknob was a bit difficult to pull upwards and water then went every where. Possibly a new shower head required. Other than those issues, we had a very relaxing stay.

    It was also very clean and tidy. Therefore a full five star rating from us.

  • "Spotlessly clean and comfortable bungalow in a beautiful location."

    We did find the lack of fencing between the front and back of the property a problem with the dog.

  • "The cottage was lovely it was nice to see the train go by and peaceful surroundings."

    The only problem was we found the beds uncomfortable and also had to buy a duvet as I am allergic to feathers. The holiday was lovely.

  • "Beautiful cottage, very clean and well equipped with all that is needed."

    Very pleased with our week at Ceris, would recommend and already have done so. There was only one down side to the cottage, the rear garden is only 90% fully enclosed for dogs. Not a problem for us, but I think if you had a younger, more inquisitive dog, it could well be off exploring. All in all, a brilliant week, great location with matching views. Many thanks.

  • "The cottage is in a pleasant and quiet location, well laid out and with all the facilities you could require."

    The wifi speed and performance was excellent. Visitors should be aware there are some single track, narrow roads on the approach to the cottage from the village. The one niggle was the shower - this was an mixer style tap without a thermostatic value which mean it was difficult to get a comfortable, consistent temperature. The mechanism to select the shower rather than taps was also stiff and difficult to operate.

The property

Nestled in the rolling countryside of the pretty village of Penrhyndeudraeth, on the outskirts of the picturesque Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, is this lovely bungalow of Ceris.

Situated in an elevated position, this bungalow has everything a family of four could need for a delightful break to the heart of Wales.

Boasting far-reaching country views, you will delight in spending your evenings inside, which has been decorated to a high-standard and offers plenty of contemporary furnishings to suit your needs.

Enter the spacious sitting room, boasting a picture window, encompassing those magnificent country views and giving the room an abundance of natural light, leaving you with a welcoming and tranquil feeling the moment you walk through the door.

Here, you can spend your evenings curled up with your loved ones and catching up with your favourite shows on the Smart TV.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner which has all the appliances you could need to cook up a storm, whilst the dining table is able to fold out and seat up to four people.

With all rooms resting on the ground floor, you will have easy access to two double bedrooms, both of which have a range of contemporary furniture to store your personal items.

The family bathroom has an elegant bath and shower over, so you can choose whether you'd prefer a quick shower in the morning or a relaxing soak in the tub after a tiring day.

Outside boasts a wonderful decking area, where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining with a well-deserved glass of wine, with a delightful lawned garden which backs onto the Ffestiniog Steam Railway, offering tours of this wonderful coastal area.

Spend your afternoons on any one of the nearby sandy beaches at Black Rock Sands Beach and Porthmadog or venture towards the picturesque nature reserve of Gwaith Powdwr, offering plenty of trails for some scenic walking and cycling opportunities.

You are less than nine miles away from the wonderful attraction of Zip World and Bounce Below, where you can unleash your inner thrill-seeker and explore the underground net adventure and tunnels, with exciting zip wires all family members can get involved with.

Ceris provides an exceptional base for those looking to explore this picturesque region of Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
