The cottage Bodalaw in Trawsfynydd made an excellent base for us. We all really liked the cottage - quite apart from being comfortable and well-equipped, it felt like a house you could live in, and not just one that had been set up as a holiday house.

A lovely welcoming cottage with everything you could possibly need for a carefree, relaxing holiday. The village shop almost next door, friendly locals and situated as it is means you can easily explore north, east, south and west. Can definitely recommend it. Just one tip: if you don't get back to the cottage before the locals get back from work in the evening the parking spaces in the off road bay can be full.
August 2011
Easy to find well appointed, helpful information file provided. Thorough enjoyed first trip to Wales Portmerion and Canarfon Castle a must see
R Parker
September 2011
The cottage was in a fabulous location, with easy distances to most attractions. The cottage itself was very clean and a very comfortable place to stay; all the facilities you required. My friends and I felt there was no need to install an internet connection, a holiday for us is relaxing and sight-seeing. I say this because a comment left in the guest book stated it would be a better place if there was an internet connection. There are plenty of holiday lets in North Wales area that advertise an internet connection - so do not choose a let that has no interent. I think that is an unfair expense to put on the owners. I would recommend Sykes Holiday Cottages to all. The whole service was faultless.
September 2011
Comfortable, well equipped cottage situated in friendly village with countryside views. Excellent position for visiting many different types of places and attractions.
October 2011
Lovely clean well equipped cottage. Good access to Snowdon, Port Merrion, beaches and some lovely local towns/villages.
October 2011
Apart from the parking this holiday home was all that you could wish for.
June 2012
A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the country, the open fire gives the cottage a homely feel (wood provided) and facilities are excellent. A selection of board games, films and CD's are also available. Contrary to a previous comment, parking was never a problem. Would definately recommend.
May 2011
An excellent accomodation, could not wish for anything better first class.

Quiet location , very convenient for travelling around North Wales.
