Penrhyddion Ucha Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This property was originally built and used as a farmhouse and has been lovingly restored to offer accommodation for up to five people. It retains many of the original features, such as exposed beams and a slate fireplace. An enclosed garden offers ample opportunity for a spot of alfresco dining or simply to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets over the distant mountains. This cottage is managed by Sykes Cottages.

Betws-Y-Coed was founded around a monastery late in the 6th Century. It grew very slowly with the development of the local lead-mining industry and today has earned the nickname of ‘the Gateway to Snowdonia' and is one of North Wales' most popular holiday destinations. As part of the Snowdonia National Park it is surrounded by miles of unspoilt countryside and ancient mountains and is home to an abundance of wildlife and some rare species of plants. This is a Mecca for walkers, horse-riders and climbers looking to pit themselves against the trials offered by Mount Snowdon. There are a variety of attractions in and around Betwsy-Y-Coed, such as Fairy Glen, a secluded gorge and beauty spot on the River Conwy. The Swallow Falls are also extremely popular and offer a dramatic highlight to any visit. There is a good selection of pubs in the village, with a number of restaurants and shops.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The cottage is in a secluded area in the hills on a working farm. A perfect place for a quiet relaxing holiday. It was nice to see the owner a couple of times whilst we were there. She made sure that we had absolutely no problems. The cottage is cosy and warm and ideally located for the attractions that this part of the world has to offer. We will return without doubt, and hopefully stay in the same cottage.

The views were outstanding and the log fire very homely. The cottage was beautiful. I took glasses and extra things but there was no need as everything you needed was provided even a welcoming snack. I would highly recommend this cottage.
Mr Lakhani
July 2012
The location of the accommodation on the farm, especially during lambing season was a worthwhile experience. Furthermore it was not far from Betws-y-coed, a beautiful riverside town with good restaurants and nice walks. Had the opportunity to meet the owners who were very friendly and attended to our small request very promptly. We were shown around their working farm nearby where we had a rewarding experience of witnessing a lamb being born in our presence. I will definitely visit this place again and will surely recommend to others as well.
Mrs Powter

Mrs McLean

We enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and the beautiful views from the cottage, as well a the fact that it was a working farm and we got to meet the owner, a lovely lady.

Great place for peace and tranquility. We had a whole farm to ourselves. Warm and cosy house. Home-from-home feeling. Great walks from the house itself. Good base for local attractions.
Mr Longman
August 2007
This was a fantastic cottage, ideally situated in lovely countryside and a great base for our busy holiday. The owners were very kind and thoughtful. The games room was a big hit with our five year old little boy. We also had our 13 year old daughter and 8mth old baby and there was plenty for us all to do and enjoy! We will definitely book again - one week was not enough!
Mrs Taylor
August 2007
We always use your company because of the guaranteed high standards and the cottage in Wales did not disappoint.The location was idyllic with plenty to do in the area. Plenty of local information in the accommodation which was helpful. Charming hosts who were keen to check that everything was alright but left us to our own devices.

Mr Robson
June 2007
As we had our dog with us, the location could not have been better with lovely walks literally from our back door. All around us, from every window, were gorgeous views of the animals on the farm and the mountains as an added backdrop. We had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay and enjoyable week. The local waterfalls and surrounding lakes in the area were particularly impressive.
Mr Smith
November 2006
The quiet and remote location, the views, the charm cosiness of the cottage and surrounding country walks. The detached games room was an added bonus, great for our children.
Ms Storer

We enjoyed the remote location with beautiful views, and would definitley visit again.

Mrs Clover
November 2006
Everything about the holiday was excellent, the accommodation the area and the service over all. There are some fantastic walks and on days when we wanted to relax it was lovely to sit in front of the log fire. The owner is lovely and very friendly, the welcome tray and fresh flowers were a very nice touch and very welcoming after our journey. This is the third cottage we have stayed in with Sykes and the fourth time we have been in the last 3 years, they have all been excellent but this one was exceptional. I would definately recommend it to our friends and will certainly be going back.
Mr Mrs Freer
April 2006
Excellent cottage giving a remote feel, but close to many amenities. Good size rooms with good views over the countryside. Our son loved the games room and the enclosed garden. Very well equipped for any weather of which there is a lot in Snowdonia. Would recommend to anyone for a relaxing retreat.
Mr Wise
December 2005
We all had a good chilling and relaxing time. the area was very good for walks and site seeing. The owner was very kind and left us to chill out, but was just a phone call away, if we needed anything. Over all we will be going back! There was nothing that we did not like, we would like to thank you for a great break!
Miss Mellar
November 2005
We had a lovely time, the cottage was very clean and comfortable. The owners have obviously taken great care and time in making it a such a lovely home from home. The cottage is also situated in a lovely area, with nice walks and scenery on the doorstep.
Ms Culkin
October 2005
We had a wonderful holiday in this cottage. The location is perfect, completely peaceful with wonderful views. We loved the tea tray and scones when we arrived and the boys loved the chocolate biscuits. Thanks.
June 2013
A warm welcome with milk and cakes awaitied us. It is a lovely 'farmhouse' set on a working sheep farm about 4 miles from Betws-y-Coed. The accommodation was very clean, neat and tidy, with everything you could want, providing a home from home feeling. The owner was friendly and helpful. There is a games room in an outbuilding and a laundry room. It is well situated for Snowdonia with Anglesey less than an hour away, and plenty of nice walks nearby. The guest comment book showed a number of regular visitors. We would definitely stay there again, and would recommend the cottage to friends.
Mr Mrs Gosling

The setting of location - fantastic scenery and located within easy reach of everywhere.
Mrs Freeman
September 2005
This cottage is located in a beautiful part of Wales. Our 3 young children loved the games room and the gardens and adjacent field were safe for them to run around in. Everything was clean and spotless and very comfortable. The 'welcome tray' was particularly thoughtful. We met the owners and they were very friendly. We would definitely recommend this place to friends.
Mr Marshall

Mr Mrs Knight

The cottage was very remote, beautiful views, relaxing environment, with a friendly welcome and very homely. The cottage was very clean and the standards were high. The games room was an added bonus. It was nice we were able to take the dog.
Mr Mrs Wright
September 2005
The location was perfect for what we wanted from our holiday. The cottage itself was 100% could not fault it in anyway. The views were spectacular. Welcome tray and fresh flowers were an added bonus. Games room was excellent kept us all busy of an evening and there was plenty of room to store our bikes in the utility room. Will definitely be looking at staying again.
December 2011
The cottage was clean and well equipped,with a tea tray and cakes left out for arrival. Everything worked which makes a change! There are fantastic views of the mountains from here and a somewhat challenging farm road to access the cottage. To travel to the many places of interest does involve a bit of a drive down valleys and around mountains but the scenery makes it worthwhile.The area has many, many castles, beautiful lakes and a lot of sheep! A trip to the top of Snowdon is a must - but best done on a relatively clear day. We would happily return in the future.
November 2012
Nothing negative to write it was a brill place to stay hope we can do it again Mrs Jones was a lovely lady we thoroughly enjoyed all of it what can i say it was one of those holidays you never forget X X X
Mrs D.V.Powter
September 2011
The service was fine, we could phone the owner for information or her eggs. We were never intruded upon, but felt she was there to help if need be, give local info about restaurants or beaches. We liked the home, it had a cottage feel with all mod cons including a washing machine in an outhouse. The only snag about the beds was that my daughter [45 yrs] slept on the spare bed in the double bedroom. She found it incredibly hard and woke up stiff and painful. She didn't want to share the double bed with me, found me disturbing [up in the night.] We had to go a few miles into Betswy Coed for food, but the Spar there had everything we wanted and stayed open late every day so shopping was not a problem. The distance to all the different mountains took quite a while to get to, the situation was good, but perhaps not quite as central as we would have liked. Not a big deal really, but we only had a week and we wanted to do so much, a lot of our time was travelling. I liked the views over such a vast skyline of hills and the lovely wild flowers, streams and walks straight from the house. We didn't like sky television, couldn't see the programmes we wanted, they couldn't be found. The boys liked the peace of the place - they had come from the busy city of Shanghai, but being boys, they wanted to play football and found the garden a bit too small for that. I don't think they were too impressed with the games room, but as we were out most of time, these issues were minor. I know they enjoyed their holiday immensely, they had wanted to go to Wales for a long time and they reffered to the fields, the sheep, the beaches and their different hikes many times when they got back to my home. They wrote and thanked me warmly when they went back to Shanghai.

A warm welcome from the owner, a lovely, clean, spacious cottage in the most gorgeous setting. Peaceful, quiet with wonderful mountain views. Brilliant for walking in the mountains, close to Betwys Coed for eating out- best food was the Silver Fountain pub nearby- excellent curries! Weather was unbelievably good- coast about 45 mins to the remote, un-peopled beaches (won't say where, then everyone will go there!) We will definitely return; highly recommended.
December 2009
