  • "Beautiful house, very spacious, lovely furnishings and comfortable beds."

    Discovered how rubbish we all are at playing pool and darts but was fun finding out. Views are stunning and the hot tub was fab. There was a plumbing issue which was resolved quite quickly. Would benefit from new toaster as only one side works, sun loungers and not sure if the BBQ is missing a bit, but apart from those, and it was really only the toaster we were using, it was all good. Lovely Welsh hamper was there when we arrived, and they let me bring my cat so we will definitely come back.

    We were unlucky with the weather but enjoyed staying indoors in this lovely spacious house with a great view on the hills. The kitchen is big and well equipped, we were able to cook big meals for nine.

  • "The house was gorgeous and actually the photos just don't do it justice."

    The views are beautiful. The weather wasn't great but the house was perfect to escape to. It was well equipped in general (only 9 mugs seemed a little meagre for a house meant for 10) and the welcome pack was the most generous we've ever received - many thanks for that! We were unsure where to put food waste as all other waste was very clearly marked. We found the house very cold until we worked out that the thermostat was in the stairwell and closing doors to keep the heat in was actually stopping the heating from coming on. All in all a wonderful stay. We'd love to come back.

  • "The only reason I didn’t give this full marks for accuracy of listing is because it far exceeded the listing."

    What a wonderful holiday. 10 of us ranging from 3-74 and there was plenty to do for everyone. Trampoline , hot tub, big garden space, games room, large sitting areas and quiet areas. This house felt like home on arrival - the heating was on, it smelt clean and the welcome pack was so needed after a long tedious journey. The host bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed. The utility room was so useful for muddy shoes and coat storage. There is not a single negative remark that I could justify making. I think this must be the best holiday home that we have ever rented. Thank you so much.

    The welcome pack was probably the most generous we’ve ever received, apart from the basics there was a selection of delicious goodies including chutneys, preserves, Welsh cakes and Barra brith. Even though the weather wasn’t kind to us there was still plenty to keep us entertained in the games room or just chill and read a book also plenty of lovely places around to explore around this part of Wales for your days out.

  • "No Wi-Fi when we arrived, until Wednesday , and the owners told us we had to speak to their internet provider to fix it."

    Some of the property photos and/or descriptions of the property are inaccurate, incomplete and out of date ( Sykes T&C’s 8.1.2 Owners will provide an accurate, complete and up to date description of the property) There is no Aga. There is no log burning stove/open fire The hot tub has been moved around the side of the property, not on the patio facing the beautiful view. The pool table is different, it’s scruffy and needs re-clothing. There is a drop along the length of the patio onto the grass of about two- three foot, with no hazard warning, particularly dangerous in the dark, as the outdoor lighting was not very bright and no torch in the property. Sun lounger broken, mentioned in a previous review in May 2023, hasn’t been mended/replaced. There was no Wi-Fi when we arrived. (Sykes T&C’s 3.8 If the description of the property states that Wi-Fi is included the owners are responsible for ensuring that Wi-Fi has been set up at the property) The owners told us we had to speak to their internet provider on the phone in the property. Only two of our mobile phones (with EE) had reception. The owners gave us an 8G SIM card , which only worked for a few minutes. On Wednesday, after days of endless calls, waiting for calls, being put on hold, trying to follow technical instructions, we weren’t prepared to deal with it anymore, as it was so stressful and ruining our holiday. We complained to the owners, who came to the property to sort it out. As a consequence it was very difficult to organise activities/days out for five days of our holiday. There was no map and the tourist information in the property was limited. The post and rail fence could do with chicken wire along it , our dog soon worked out that she could get through it easily. We just about managed to keep to the refuse restriction of one black bin bag per week . We have never been asked to take rubbish home before. In other properties the owners deal with any excess rubbish. The grass was very long, shoes got soaking wet after walking on it. We complained to the owners , they cut the grass but left grass cuttings behind, so thick clumps of grass got stuck to shoes and difficult to remove. A number of bricks weren’t cemented on the patio steps , which my husband slipped down, particularly dangerous in the dark, as the outdoor lighting was not very bright and no torch in the property. We complained to the owners and they came to fix it. We couldn’t close/open curtains in the upstairs single bedroom. We couldn’t find the circular walks from the property and no directions/ map in the property. A hand drawn map / directions of walks from the property would have been great. The property was very clean and comfortable. The view is beautiful. On Wednesday the owners did apologise for our frustration with the Wi-Fi. They bought us a lovely bouquet of flowers which sadly we had to leave behind, as there was no room in the car. We paid £2600 and would like some compensation. We have complained to Sykes and they have contacted the owners, but they have not had any response yet. Note : Sykes T&C’s 8.1.2 Owners will inform guests in writing of any changes to the description of the property which would make Sykes description of the property inaccurate, incomplete or misleading.

    Location is perfect for a number of holiday activities including beach and surfing. My only disappointment was the recycling restrictions which frankly are unworkable. One black bag of general waste per week is unreasonable; I took 5 bags to the local recycling centre who refused to take them; also the note at the house suggesting occupants should take home empty bottles is a joke - I certainly don’t pay £2.5 k to recycle waste ! The owner should be paying commercial rates to include removal of all waste /rubbish. Overall though a brilliant week, so happy to recommend Blaenachddu.

  • "We had a brilliant week at Blaenachddu and would highly recommend it for a large group."

    The property exceeded our expectations and was of much higher quality than the pictures suggest. The amount of space both inside and out is excellent and ensures you have your own space even on a rainy day, of which we experienced too many! There were a couple of niggles around the place we ended up sorting ourselves but overall a great holiday in a fabulous and peaceful location. Unspoilt views from the garden are amazing and great for star gazers on a clear night. A permanent cover over the hot tub would add a lot and a preparation/outdoor kitchen type area next to the amazing BBQ would finish it off beautifully. Easy access to local walks and to local towns and the coastline. We were very close to booking again for next year but wouldn't hesitate to come again in the future.

  • "Eautiful property."

    Our main issue was the wifi breaking down, the owners promptly supplied us with a mobile router and covered the costs but this was problematic due to poor signal. Wifi was repaired at the end of the week but this was not the owners fault as it was Christmas bank holiday. The photographs do not do this property justice as it was much more charming than we expected and the layout worked very well for our larger family. We rate this property a solid 4. The following points are just some constructive suggestions which would have just clinched a 5. 1 The jacuzzi is amazing but really needs to be under a gazebo as it rained most of the week for us but would have still been warm enough to make use of if undercover. Additional lighting would also be useful. 2 There appeared to be lots of outdoor lights but many were inoperable so there was insufficient lighting at the front door and around the bin area at night. 3 The glass pane which divides the dining room and lounge area could do with some frosted window film for safety. We ended up turning the sofa round to obscure the window entirely to avoid one of the kids running into it. 4. Minor maintenance issues such as functional but broken lamp, buckled curtain rail in didning room, kitchen table bench was loose, pool table leg was damaged but promptly addressed when brought to the owners attention. TV remotes held together with sellotape and lack of working outdoor lighting already mentioned. 5. Would benefit from extra cutlery for serving meals as there was just enough for 10 without any to spare. None of the above points should detract from what this property has to offer spacious comfortable well equipped and charming accommodation. We would love to return and experience it again in the summer months

    Unfortunately it could do with a little tlc but nothing major. The main things that were a little inconvenient were the drain outside was blocked because of the amount of rain, therefore the water draining from the washing machine was coming back in, so we were mopping an awful lot when the machine was on. The main sitting room could do with a smart TV and the hot tub could do with some sort of outside cover or canopy to keep your towels dry whilst you are in the tub. Other than that it was fantastic and we will definitely be back

  • "Had a lovely week in our holiday home."

    We were an extended family of 10 including three children. We had some concerns regarding recent reviews before we travelled but were assured these had been now sorted and indeed they had. The property was more spacious than we imagined and the terrace/patio area is all newly flagged which was brilliant for relaxing on and taking in the stunning view. One of the loungers was broken but we had taken some of our own so this wasn’t a problem and we managed. The property was quite clean throughout and bed linen was spotless. Well equipped kitchen with anything you could need. Aga looked like it had not been used for some time and was dusty with cobwebs in so we also avoided using it and stuck with the electric oven which was fine. There is the odd cobweb around and the windows needed cleaning - my sister cleaned the patio windows one morning so we could admire the view better. Most of the kitchen lights do not work but we managed. The games room was a brilliant addition to the property and we used this every evening. Lots of darts and pool cues supplied. The hot tub was nice but we couldn’t really use it on an evening as it is in a very dark part of the garden with no lighting. We moved a lamp and popped it in the dinning room window but was still a little too dark. Maybe some fairy lights would work well around this area? We got a Tesco delivery on the first evening which I would highly recommend as the nearest shops are in Newcastle Emlyn around 10 mins away and there is no large supermarket. There is a large American fridge freezer at the property so lots of room to keep things fresh and cool. Overall we had a brilliant week away and I would certainly recommend the property to our friends and family even with the niggles mentioned.

    Many thanks for your comments. Glad you enjoyed your stay. All issues referred to have been addressed. There is a newly refurbished Coop in Newcastle Emlyn, as well as a large CK's supermarket, and a smaller Premier in the town centre. Nearby Cenarth also has a large supermarket as part of the petrol station just over the bridge. Property Owner

    The owners provided a beautiful welcome pack consisting of tea, coffee, milk and other Welsh goodies, which was very much appreciated after a very long drive. The property still has a lot of repair work to be done which previous guests had mentioned but we found had not been rectified: no lighting outside, hot tub was slimy, loose bricks on steps down to garden, (which almost caused a serious accident), horrible stain on back of green dining room chair, all knives in utensil drawer are blunt, dishwasher with no useable cutlery holder, the oven needed a clean before use, DVD player does not work, the downstairs shower leaked everywhere, bulbs missing from wall lights in bedroom, my husband had to screw a light back to the wall in the dining room as it was hanging off, middle of long curtain rail not supported above dining room patio doors, curtains falling down in upstairs bedroom, stains and cigarette burns on cushions for outdoor furniture, splinters on conservatory wood floor, cobwebs behind sofas in conservatory, grubby windows in conservatory, darts were all broken, tips missing off pool cues, dead flies on window sill in conservatory, washing line is low and hangs over barbecue and hot tub, so can’t use either if you’ve got washing to dry, plus no pegs to hang washing out! If the owners were to maintain their property to a high standard this property would definitely be 5 stars! It certainly is not worthy of 4.7 rated by Sykes cottages!

    Newcastle Emlyn. ▪︎Dirty plates and utensils. (See attached photo) Oven pans & trays caked in grease & needed cleaning before we cooked with them. Broken handles on large frying pan, non stick pans were not "non stick". ▪︎Mould found in dishwasher & leak under the sink with a bowl catching drips. Powder drawer on washing machine caked in old powder you could see dripping down the outside of the machine. Needed cleaning before use. ▪︎Preparation knives blunt and not fit for purpose, tried 5 different ones & none of them cut an onion! ▪︎No information for Bin Day or where to put them. Just about what to put in each bin. ▪︎Dirty carpets upstairs which are loose & not fitted, the carpet wasn’t over the top of the gripper rod & someone stood on it in bare feet, also when rolling suitcase out of the bedroom it took the landing carpet with it. ▪︎Power outage on 2nd morning. No communication from Owners to let us know it was being dealt with. Had to go out to find their house to ask what was going on as no phone signal in the house. ▪︎Very poor Internet connection & WiFi connectivity constantly dropping. ▪︎Downstairs shower leaks and floods bathroom every time shower is used shower cubicle needs attention to repair the leak. Previous guests have complained about this in guest book weeks prior & still not fixed. ▪︎Games room equipment in poor condition. There were pool cues without tips so were unusable we had to buy our own. This also applied to the darts & flights which were also unusable so we had to buy our own as well. ▪︎Games room floorboards needed attention as two of our party had splinters in their feet because the floor needed sanding. ▪︎Trampoline. This has been out of action since a child had an accident in May according to the visitors book so another facility that was unusable/dangerous. ▪︎No safety sticker/frosting on glass sliding doors in dining room as you can't tell if they're open or closed. Our 9yr old ran full speed into them when playing, almost breaking her nose. Owner said she herself has walked into it a few times. SAFETY HAZARD. ▪︎Various light bulbs missing in the house & others not working. ▪︎Lounge extension roof leaks in three places. Had to put bowls Underneath the leaks to catch the rainwater. ▪︎Hot tub didn't work for the shower 2nd week. Was only useable again the day before we left after a part needed replacing. The hot tub was a main reason for our booking & owner said she had told Sykes to recompense us for not having use of it, however we've heard nothing since. ▪︎The house has a 4.7 Star rating on Sykes Cottages websites. It definitely isn’t. The house is tired & needs a lot TLC, cleaning & maintenance & proper management/checks before guests arrive to avoid alot of our issues.

    Sykes had loads of options at reasonable prices. We chose this cottage for the space, the facilities and the number of double beds as there were a few of us going. The cottage itself did not disappoint, it’s spacious, it’s out the way so you could be a bit more loud than usual. The hot tub was lovely. The house was heated fantastically, it went to minus 1 outside but we were roasting in doors. The area is beautiful and it’s based on a farm so we had the pleasure of seeing lambs in the morning. Overall cleanliness was at a high standard, kitchen was well set out and we cooked every night everything we needed was there. We decided there and then that we will book it again which personally I think speaks volume for it. My only small detail would be the pool table could do with a bit of upkeep or replacing maybe one that has multi use but even still we had plenty of fun in the evening playing it.

  • "Overall wondersful stay."

    Hot tub could have bern warmer and the oven door wouldnt close. Gsmes room floor gave us splinters. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful, peaceful setting. The house itself is lovely. The bed wasnt the most comfortable but otherwise facilitues were fab. We will definitely be coming to stay again and would easily recommend this place to stay. Oh and the log burner was lovely!!

    Hi Shara! Many thanks for your comments. You'll be glad to hear that we now have a brand new cooker, so no more issues with the door! Looking forward to welcoming you again in the near future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely quiet area in the beautiful welsh country."

    Friendly locals, central location to see the south west of wales, Tenby, new quay and Aberystwyth all around an hours drive away. The property next to a quiet working farm and business (rarely saw them or heard a thing!). Nice little walks on the country roads around the property to stretch your legs, can take around an hour where you can see the farm animals and nice views over the tops. Inside the property we were kept lovely and warm with the central heating, we took extra wood for the log burning fire which we used in the evening and would recommend doing the same if you want that extra touch. The bedrooms were very comfy and clean, nicely furnished in each and every one and plenty of space in each for your belongings. Same for the 3 bathrooms. The Hot Tub was great, took a day or so to heat up after it’s serviced, but I’d rather lose a day and know it’s clean! The view from the tub are brill, would recommend you take sandals and a dressing gown to make things a little comfier getting in and out. Kitchen appliances were all good, plenty of pots pans and cutlery, only thing missing was a pair of working scissors but I’m being picky. Lovely welcome basket thank you. Large sofa and tv in the living area, we took a laptop and HD cable, the WiFi was good and we were able to stream Netflix and sky go. Wood burner to keep it cosy and plenty of games to play although they do need some tlc. Darts board and pool table to mix it up a bit, we never got bored! We really enjoyed our stay and would defiantly return and recommend this property and area for a nice relaxing break. I’d give a strong 9/10, the wiggle room would just be the little bit of missing TLC around the games and games room, Garden and cleaning, bit more love and attention here and it would be spot on, but overall a very very very nice stay. Thank you again and hope you appreciate the feedback.

  • "The house was clean and had good facilities."

    Everything in working order apart from the shower downstairs leaked so we chose not to use it. Hot tub wasn’t listed and was a good addition. House was ideally placed to explore and was great for a large group.

  • "There was one thing I was very disappointed with, on viewing the property it shows on the pictures a trampoline in the ground which I thought would be perfect for my 3yr old granddaughter as we wouldn't have to worry about her playing on it and falling off, and she was so excited about it."

    When arriving at the property we noticed the trampoline was curved, after closer inspection we saw the trampoline was not safe, and was very unstable, was curved up at the sides and was not secure in the ground, my granddaughter was very upset that she couldn't play on it.

    Dear Laurie - many thanks for your comments, which we have addressed. If you had let us know about the issue during your stay, we would have called to resolve it. Best wishes and apologies to your granddaughter too. Property Owner

  • "It's a lovely big house, well appointed with everything needed."

    We had a lovely family Christmas and were delighted that the owner took the time to decorate the house, it was a lovely touch. The wifi didn't work for a while but we had had a huge storm the day before. We will definitely be back. The negative thing I would say, is that we had toddlers with us and there is no fire guard, and a gate on the access to drive would be good as dogs are allowed. Our Kelpie managed to tiptoe around the edge of the cattle grid.

  • "Disappointed with the information that I was given as I specifically asked if there were any steps on the ground floor as my dad is unable to walk more that a few paces with a walking frame and uses a mobility scooter."

    The dining table was on a different level to the kitchen by 2 steps and lounge by one large step down, We did manage with my brother and husband helping him but feel that this needs to be clear in the property details.
