I loved the cottage, the location especially was beautiful. The owners were very attentive asking if we needed anything throughout the week. Everything about the cottage was perfect, we wouldn't change anything. I will be staying there again.

The location was very peaceful and quite remote, being three miles from the nearest village. There was just the sound of the nearby river, and, on days that weren't misty, the views of the nearby hills were beautiful. The cottage was more than adequate for our needs, it was spacious and very clean, with plenty of leaflets and information inside the house. We particularly liked being close to nature, so this suited all four of us.

A fantastic location, stunning scenery, near to the beach and set in a very pretty rural location on a hill farm. Anyone who enjoys walking, cycling, horse riding and walks along a beautiful beach would be at home here. Will certainly return.

An excellent property which was well furnished and welcoming. This has to be one of the best equipped properties we have ever stayed in. The soft furnishings and beds were extremely comfortable. Everything possible had been done to ensure our holiday was comfortable and hassle free. Thank you to the owner for the trouble they've taken to make this cottage a home from home.

Fabulous place that catered for our every needs. It was a lovely cosy, cute place and having such a peaceful and tranquil location helps make it a wonderful place to experience real rural Welsh farming life. We have stayed in many places in Wales and this is by far the best. A most memorable stay.
Mr Mullens

The cottage far exceeded our expectations and the photos on the Sykes website probably don't do it justice. The location was superb - very peaceful but within easy reach of a plethora of local attractions. Highly recommended!
Mr Harper
May 2015
A beautiful, isolated location, far away from noise distractions, and perfect for local walks in the countryside. The cottage itself was warm, cosy and amply supplied.
Mrs Taylor
May 2015
This was an absolutely typical country cottage that us city folk imagine and it did not disappoint in any way. The farmer was extremely helpful in pointing out places to walk our dog - which was a delightful lane with a river running next to it right outside our cottage. He also gave us tips on places to visit in the local area which was extremely helpful. We were left to enjoy our cottage holiday without intrusion however we knew we could ask the owner for anything we needed. Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a relaxing country holiday away from the city, and also close to the coastal town of Barmouth which gave us the best of both worlds.

The property was nice and spacious and in a great location.
Mr Tongue

The Cottage was very well equipped and EVERYTHING was included. It was quiet and peaceful with lots of areas for long country walks, it was an ideal spot to unwind and relax. The whole family enjoyed the peace and tranquillity and we will highly recommend it. The star rating needs upgrading as it does not do it justice.
Mr Maclaren
July 2015
This cottage is excellent in every way. A lovely location with super views. We would recommend it.
Mr Shaw
November 2014
Every effort was made to ensure we had all we needed to start our holiday- milk , tea , coffee and some cakes left for us on arrival along with plenty of logs etc and the heating hot water were on making a very cosy arrival. We had a fantastic visit it was a well equipped and loverly cottage remote and peaceful ( No Mobile Signal at all) with the added bonus of being situated in one of the most stunning valleys in N Wales and would not hesitate to recommend to any one ( In fact we already have) and plan to return for another visit
Mrs Kingaby
October 2014
Loved the get-away-from-it-all location - the murmur of the little river, the total absence of traffic, the lovely walks, the wildlife, the rugged beauty of the scenery with waterfalls and rocky hills. All that we needed was a short car ride away. There were plenty of empty beaches all along this coastline too . The cottage was thoughtfully equipped with just about everything you could need from spare logs and kids DVD'S to a shoe shine kit - splendid effort !
Mr Wilson

Excellent views and good walking from the front door.
Mrs Smith

We love Y Bwythn and the surrounding area which is very secluded and ideal for dog owners. We have stayed here many times before and are always made to feel welcome.
Mrs Wightman
June 2014
The cottage was peaceful, quiet and the surrounding was brilliant. The cottage, I would say deserves more star rating. It was home from home, loved it. A very lovely welcome with the tea and cake The owner was lovely. I will be booking again next year, nature at its best.
Mr Nicholson
May 2014
We liked the remoteness of our location and its beauty. Y Bwthyn is a warm, comfortable cottage to return to. A home from home.
Mr Matthews
August 2014
Located in very picturesque, rural surroundings. Able to go on nice walks without having to use the car. Also, the property was within a reasonable driving distance of a nice beach. The locality was excellent as a holiday destination.
Mr Gray
September 2014
Exceeded all our dreams - the ideal rural retreat away from the rat race or hustle and bustle of busy lives. Calm tranquil surroundings, lovely friendly people and plenty to do. There are fantastic pubs and restaurants in area. All in all, the perfect get away for us, and doggy friendly.
Mr Andrew
April 2014
The setting was beautiful and everything we could have needed was provided. We were greeted by the sight of new born lambs looking in the rear kitchen window, what a lovely start to our holiday! The log fire in the evenings was a particular attraction, there were lots of lovely walks near the cottage and the local people were friendly and welcoming. The Cakes on arrival were 'lush' as described by the children. The location is perfect for a mixture of local walking and trips to Snowdon, Barford and Harlech. We had a brilliant time.
Mr Allmark
September 2013
Waking up every morning to the wonderful surroundings and peace and quiet was lovely. The property was very homely, and everything you could need was provided. We would definitely go again, and would recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful location the cottage sits in Snowdonia National Park. From the front door you can walk into the hills, up to lakes and water falls, and in 10 minutes by car your on wonderful stretches of beach. We had a really relaxing time.
Mr Koopman
October 2012
It was a wonderful place and area. There were sheep all around us in the fields. We liked the small roads and all the stonewalls around the fields. There are plenty of walking routes in the area. Wales saw Wales at its best, dry, sunny and mild temperatures.
Mr New
July 2012
We loved the cottage and where it is - the neighbour was also very friendly. We would use it again.
Mr Church
January 2012
The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Lovely quiet location which was easy to find. The owner had left us tea, coffee and milk with cakes on arrival, plenty of household bits, linen and towels. A great Xmas away!

Mrs McQuiston

My brother and I thoroughly enjoyed our short break and were very impressed with the equipment provided in the kitchen. The buttered Welsh Cakes went down a treat on our arrival! We will definitely recommend Sykes Cottages to friends and family.
Mrs Thorman
October 2011
We loved the cosiness of the cottage. The valley was really scenic, we did a fair bit of walking straight from the door. A lovely part of Wales.
Mrs Baldwin
August 2011
Peaceful location with lovely views. Friendly owners, well equipped kitchen and a handy boot room!
Mrs Jones
September 2011
The cottage felt homely rather than just somewhere to stay. It was well equipped; the kitchen had everything and the washer/dryer was a godsend. The location was beautiful and we were well located to travel north or south depending on where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see. King Arthur's Labyrinth at Collis Craft Centre was very interesting and fun with some beautiful craft shops too. There are fantastic views to be seen and beautiful beaches in Wales and we're already looking at booking again for next year.
Mrs Fountain
June 2011
The cottage was well equipped and had everything you could possibly need to make it a home from home. The owner was very welcoming and a lovely host. There was nothing about this property that we didn't like.
Ms Bridges
August 2011
There were excellent views from the cottage and lovely walks on the doorstep.
Mrs Doggett
May 2011
Beautiful location - particularly good to visit at this time of year with a field full of lambs next to the cottage! Lovely friendly owner who was happy to help, and let us explore their land with our dog. Very well equipped kitchen - including a barbecue and washer/dryer for us to use, complete with detergent etc.
September 2012

September 2012
We were greeted with welsh cakes they were scrumptious. Although we were told the water was from a spring and may be discolored, we could taste nothing different to our own tap water. we felt that we were catered for in every way and would recommend this cottage to any one and everyone. We would like to say a really big thank you to the owners,they did us proud. The cottage is located 3 miles from Llanbedr, down some narrow country lanes, it is off the beaten track really quiet, it is also very cosy and warm. Brian & Patricia Farthing / Alan & Julie Frost

The cottage is located on a 500 acre sheep farm in the middle of Snowdonia.It is attached to the farmhouse. The farmer and his wife are lovely people and invited us in to the farm several times. The cottage has 2 bedrooms, a log burning fire in the living room and a fully fitted kitchen/diner. The nearest village is 3 miles away along a very winding road that is single track for about 2 miles.Harlech is a short drive away and the towns of Porthmadog and Barmouth are worth a visit.The roads to all these towns has spectacular views.All in all we had an different but unforgettable holiday. Really enjoyed it.
