The location of Nant Cottage was fantastic, in the heart of North Wales. Walking, cycling and general tourist travel are made easy when staying at this cottage. The ambience of the cottage is superb , it gives one a feel of total relaxation . Wild life visits you on the very doorstep , there is a beautiful waterfall within 5 minute walk . 10 out of 10!
Mr Franks
August 2015
Breathtaking cottage and views in the surrounding area. Lots to do on the doorstep with everything you could want only a couple of miles away. Everything about this holiday went smoothly and would certainly not hesitate using Sykes and Nant Cottage in the very near future.
Mr Howells
September 2015
Liked the welcome, the feeling of belonging as soon as you walked through the door, me and my family really enjoyed our stay. Thank you for the use of a lovely cottage.
Mr Walker

Mr Playfoot

A lovely house with great access to the national parks. Had a friendly welcome from the owners and everything was explained upon arrival. Couldn't ask for more.
Ms Hartley
February 2016
Nant Cottage is a truly magical, fairytale cottage it is maintained impeccably. This property is clearly loved by its owners. The photos do not do it justice.
Mr Jukes
March 2016
A lovely, comfortable cottage on its own in the forest by a waterfall. Friendly owners; nothing too much trouble. When we booked we expected something a little special but this place is the stuff of dreams. We will definitely be going again. A truly beautiful place.
Mr Monk
March 2015
Nant Cottage is a beautiful cottage in a fantastic location was the perfect place for us get away for a few days and relax after our wedding. Nant Hall has been very well looked after and we soon found ourselves calling it 'home'. We loved it and will definitely be back for a whole week as possible.
Mrs Burns
May 2015
We loved everything about this beautiful cottage and would highly recommend it to everyone. Would love to return one day.
Mr Ashworth
January 2015
The cottage was picture perfect, a gorgeous house in a beautiful spot. A real holiday to remember with the wood burner, character rooms and a waterfall at the bottom of the garden. What more could you ask. So peaceful and yet near enough to the places to visit.
Ms Roberts
February 2015
A lovely cottage, with everything we could need, it had a really homely feel and was very cozy despite the freezing temperatures outside. The area was beautiful and there was so much to do within close proximity. We had a lovely welcome from the owner who greeted us with scones, and put milk in the fridge for us, a thoughtful touch, she gave us her number if we needed anything (we didn't) and then left us in peace to enjoy our break. Thoroughly recommended and will definitely return.
Mr Holland
March 2015
Lovely cottage and fabulous location if you like seclusion, yet not far from town if required. Had all modern amenities whilst retaining its rustic charm. Our second visit and will be back again.
Mrs Burford
January 2014
The surrounding area is stunning; there is so much to do right on the doorstep. The amenities in the cottage are perfect, everything you need to cook substantial family meals including a roast dinner are provided. The furniture, TV and WiFi were all excellent! The complimentary cream tea and chocolates were a lovely surprise. Our boys loved the stream across the road and the waterfall in the back garden is just amazing. I didn't want to leave the cottage and gardens!
Mrs Hatch
May 2014
A beautiful country cottage with a very warm welcome from owners. I would really love to return and highly recommend it. A very memorable holiday. Thank you to the owners.
Mr Robson
July 2014
The cottage is a lovely old established stone cottage. It was very nice, very scenic and very secluded. Perfect for a private holiday.
Mrs Munn
August 2014
The cottage was beautiful, comfortable, clean and very well equipped. Everything far exceeded our expectations!
Mr Rooksby
November 2014
For me as a walker the location was ideal as it placed me within short drives of many hills and mountains. The location was quiet without being too remote. The property was warm and comfortable as were the beds plus plenty of hot water and a good shower. The welcome from the owners was warm and helpful, the cream scones went down well!
Mrs Taylor
January 2015
A warm, welcoming cottage set in the most stunning surroundings. The cottage provided the most perfect location for our Christmas providing all we needed and extra treats. We enjoyed the fantastic walking and cycling from our back door.
Mrs Gold
January 2015
This is the second time that we have stayed at Nant Cottage. What a fantastic, romantic building. The owners obviously upkeep this building as if it was their own home. We could not find any fault, simply wish we could afford to purchase the property due to its excellent location and warm, homely feeling. Very comfortable, everything working there was plenty of crockery/cutlery for all. We always talk about our experience at Nant as one of the best exclusive getaways we have ever experienced.
Mr Collins
December 2013
Excellent all round. Absolutely as described, if not better, could not find fault any aspect of our weekend.
Mr Davidson
December 2013
Magnificent hospitality. Amazing setting in a beautiful forest with a magnificent waterfall in the backyard!
Mrs Blundell
January 2014
This is our second time at Nant Cottage, and it was just as it was the first time - first rate! The whole experience there is comfort and relaxation.
Mr Thomas
September 2013
A really comfortable, cosy place to stay, away from the pace of modern life. Totally relaxing, it gives you the chance to have the holiday of your choice in North Wales. We travelled to Llandudno, Llanberis, Caernarfon, Bala, Porthmadog, Blaenau Festiniog, Beddgelert, through fantastic scenery and with ease. Its setting deep in the woods with the sound of the waterfall is completely idyllic, and the log fire in the evening makes a stress free end to perfect days.
Mrs Freakley
May 2013
The cottage was beautiful and had everything that you could possibly need, the scones with jam and cream on arrival was a lovely touch as was the supply of some essentials. We had a great time and felt very comfortable in the cottage, we will definitely book to go again, many thanks to the owners for renting out this wonderful property, top marks. Mrs Freakley may 2013
Mr Stevenson
August 2013
A delightful cottage, well located for a variety of activities. The owners have equipped the cottage with things that I wouldn't even have thought of myself.
Mr Bosworth
August 2013
The cottage was very isolated which was a big bonus for a relaxing holiday. Plenty of parking provision. Well equipped. Cosy, comfy and welcoming.
Mr Harper
September 2013
Excellent weather providing great opportunities to sample the best of Snowdonia. The ascent of Snowdon via the Ranger path on a glorious summers day was a particular highlight for the children. The Ffestiniog railway along with Great Orme/LLandudno, Portmerion, high ropes courses and zorbing kept the kids occupied throughout the days, and excellent pub food topped it all off in the evenings. The old stag in LLangernyw, and the Stables bar in picturesque Betws-y-coed provided good value nourishment. On top of all this an idyllic cottage on the edge of Gwydir forest park provided a tremendous setting to what we all agreed was probably the best family holiday we have all had.
Mr Parker
January 2013
Great location with plenty of walks on the door step. Gorgeous, cosy cottage. Can't wait to return!
Mr Stevens
February 2013
This cottage is a true little gem, well tucked away and a perfect get away. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for that quiet getaway.
Mr Hill
March 2013
The cottage itself was built to an exceptionally high standard; the furnishings and fittings were first class; the weather was cold, but the cottage was warm; we also had a warm welcome from the owners, including a plate of home made scones, butter, jam and cream! Excellent!
Mrs Douglas
March 2013
The cottage was very nice, we hope to visit again.
Mrs Stevens
April 2013
A lovely cottage that really felt 'away from it all' - so peaceful!
Mr Warren
May 2013
I loved every aspect of Nant Cottage, it is as comfortable inside as it is attractive from the exterior, warm, cosy and very well equipped. The location on the edge of the Gwydir Forest suited me perfectly, a few minutes from the back door and one has a variety of forest trails to walk and a short car journey will take you to many of the local attractions. This is a well run property and understandably popular.
Mr Krarup
October 2012
The location was superb and the house was amazing and comfortable. The waterfall at the end of the garden was mesmerizing and wonderfully loud, a fantastic sound to fall asleep to.
Miss Tang
January 2013
We loved staying at Nant Cottage, it was in a beautiful location and was very well furnished. The rooms were decorated tastefully. We were very pleased with the warm welcome we received and were very grateful for the scones and champagne! All in all we had a truly wonderful stay in a wonderful cottage and would not hesitate to stay there again.
Mr Melhuish

Mr Wheelhouse
July 2012
The holiday was great and the cottage was brilliant.
Mr Holmes
July 2012
Nant Cottage is very conveniently situated for a number of attractions which are well worth visiting. In particular, there are several National Trust properties, the most convenient being Bodnant Gardens. It is also well situated for exploring Snowdonia, by car, cycle, or on foot.
Mr Culyer
July 2012
A stunning cottage. Very well equipped. Lovely owners who greeted us with scones and cream tea. Loved the wood-burning stove too. Even had books and games for those rainy days. Perfect cottage!
Mr Shepherd
July 2012
The cottage was a period cottage which is the type we prefer, so it met all our expectations.
Mrs Thompson
April 2012
Ideal location for exploring North Wales. Lovely, well kept property in a peaceful area with lots of wildlife to keep us entertained. The waterfalls below the property are well worth a visit.
Mr Wilkes
March 2012
This property is an absolute hidden gem. Every aspect of it was amazing. It started with scones and fresh cream on arrival and every room we entered was full of character. There was plenty of space inside and out. Plenty of crockery and some cracking walks nearby. Don't miss the waterfall just a few meters from the property.
Mrs McStein
September 2011
A beautiful cottage, so peaceful and serene with beautiful country walks. We really enjoyed our stay and the people were so friendly. Everything was just perfect.

Mr White
May 2011
We enjoyed the peace and quiet, a great place to get away and relax. Lots to see and do within a reasonable distance. The owners were great hosts and a source of information about the cottage and the area.
Mrs Read
June 2011
Nant Cottage was absolutely superb. The location was excellent as was the accommodation. If anything the photos on the web site and in the brochure did not do justice to the cottage. The owners are friendly and welcoming, (loved the scones). This was one of the rare holidays we did not want to end.
Mrs Pendlebury
April 2011
Superb accommodation in a sympathetically modernised interior, entirely in keeping with the property. Great location giving access to the mountains of Snowdonia. Weather, too, was very good.

It was a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. It is just the place to get away from everything if you wanted to. Our children (aged 10 and 12) discribed it as "The Secret Garden" and had a wonderful time exploring the area. Turning up to find a hot kettle and cake laid out was nice. Having a quite room to read in was good.
Mrs Freshwater
December 2004
Nant Cottage is a beautiful cottage in a wonderful location in the forest. Although it gave us the seclusion that we require in a cottage holiday it was ideally situated for all amenities and attractions of the National Park. Thw owners are extremely friendly and welcoming and it was a lovely touch to have the kettle boiled, a pint of milk in the firdge and a homemade cake for us after a long journey from Kent. We will definitely make a return visit to Nant Cottage and will recommend it to our friends.

We stayed here in July 2015, 4 adults and an 8 year old. First impressions were stunning, the cottage definately has the wow factor from the outside. Set in a lovely location which some people may find a little isolated. Plenty of parking in gated driveway. For us inside was very dark (obviously to be expected with its age/ thickness of walls etc) we found we needed the light on all the time. The bathroom definately needed a revamp and the shower curtain would be better replaced with a screen. We found the far end of the building to smell very damp and felt cold, with us having to put the heating on in the summer. The little twin room had the strongest smell of damp and some mould on the back of the curtains. Should also be pointed out if your mobility is slightly impaired you could struggle with the spirally staircase with rope style banister and also the concrete steps linking lounge and kitchen. The cottage was clean and the owners welcome lovely (they left us scones, fresh cream and jam) which was a lovely touch. I'm sure as previous reviews state this is a good cottage just wasn't for us. My in-laws went home 3 days into our stay and we left 2 days early as we just couldn't relax here (either bats or mice in the loft).
Mrs Low
December 2004
Able to go on a variety of walks without travelling far in the car and then relaxing in the cottage which felt like home and nothing beats that. The cottage was superb and it made our holiday complete, it was like home from home, clean, cosy, decorated tastefully, everything was in place and worked and a drink by the the log burner after long walks topped it all.

February 2015
Booked this trip to celebrate parents Birthday and thought it'd be a nice weekend break for our family of 5. We stayed there for 3 Days & 2 Nights. The Cottage was easy enough to find during the day (at night it is literally pitch black so the cottage would be easily missed). We left a voice mail for the owners as to what time we'd be arriving as per their instructions. When we got there we were met by a lovely couple, who were welcoming and showed us around the house and told us a little about what there is around the area and what to avoid etc. We settled in nicely. The house looked amazing inside and out. The whole house is as cosy as it gets. We also used the fireplace which warmed up the house nicely. Rooms were of good size...the only strange thing was is that the twin room that me and my sister stayed in was colder than anywhere else in the house, but the extra blankets provided helped with that! The kitchen came with everything you need. The lovely lady even made some scones to welcome their guests, which was delicious! They even provided milk and butter. There is also WIFI but it isn't as strong upstairs as it is down stairs and there is also no phone signal inside or outside the house, although there is a payphone in the house if needed. It takes around 20 minutes to get to snowdon and around half an hour to go to caernarfon, this cottage is also next to a trail walk, so if you have dogs or like to have morning runs, cycling or hikes even then this is perfect! Overall we all enjoyed this amazing cottage holiday and would stay here again in the future.
June 2015
We thought our last cottage choice in the Gwydir Forest was unbeatable, and were naturally disappointed when it was not available for this trip. Were very fortunate in finding Nant Cottage which has now taken over the top spot of any cottage we have had in Wales, not just the North! Others have described its charms and characteristics very well and we can only echo their sentiments. In particular, we were extremely impressed with the skill and attention that the owners - Kathy and Adrian - have put into the renovation and maintenance of this property - words and pictures barely convey the excellence of the structure and its appealing gardens. Given it's location just outside Llanrwst, it is a perfect base to experience the wonders of Snowdonia and much of North Wales. Sometimes we almost felt guilty leaving in the morning to explore - we don't like to just sit around, but it would be very satisfying at this cottage - in the garden, just listening to the waterfall and stream. Highly, highly recommended.

excellent cottage and location, the owners are very friendly and helpful and the welcome scones with cream and jam were wonderful thank you so much for sharing your cottage we had a lovely time. the cottage was very clean and well stocked with everything you could need for, the location was great, very peaceful, lots of walking or cycling on quite roads and if you venture up wards you come to an outstanding lake, we couldn't believe it when we came across it whilst out driving, great place for a picnic and watching the water sport.

Nant Cottage is actually closer to the town of Llanwrst, being approximately a mile over the bridge and up into the wonderful Gwydir Forest. It is a cottage I have passed many times over the years and it was exciting to stay there for three weeks. The property is well maintained, cosy and extremely comfortable, two double bedrooms and one twin, bath with shower over and wc. Fully functional kitchen and utility room, large study and delightful sitting room with dining area. One of the fastest WiFi I have ever encountered! To the front is a sunny lawn and to the rear is seating with a BBQ, off street parking for three cars and waterfall beyond! Limitless walks of all grades just outside the door into the magnificent Gwydir Forest and Nant Cottage is a brilliant base for exploring and enjoying all that the area has to offer. The local owners were helpful and charming, loved the cream tea they provided also! I had a fabulous time here.

We wanted 'something special' to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. This beautiful cottage and area did not disappoint! Indeed, both exceeded our expectations! The wonderful character of the cottage was equaled to the attention to detail in its decor and provisions. After a 7 hour drive to reach Nant Cottage, the lovely Cream Tea left for our arrival was very well received and enjoyed. All bedrooms homed very comfortable, and beautifully laundered beds. Both the living area and Drawing Room had cozy, comfortable sofas, and the kitchen was extremely well equipped. All in all, a lovely place to relax in. Adjoining the property, the river and waterfalls offered the most relaxing audio to complete the idealistic setting. Loads of opportunities for spectacular walks and drives - amazing scenery in abundance. We splashed out at The Ty Gwyn Coaching Inn for our anniversary meal. The food was amazing, the service was friendly, but inexperience left a little to be desired. The tea room covered by ivy at the bottom of the road was amazing too! ZipWorld and Go Below were big hits with our teenage+ children, as too were the Swallow Falls and the many photographic opportunities around the area. A relatively large Co-op is minutes away, so although you have the advantage of feeling like you're totally away from it all, you are also only a short drive away from all your essentials. In a nutshell - if you're looking for a cottage to fall in love with, in an area of outstanding beauty, Nant Cottage may just be the answer (it was for us!). The 'Munns' (Aged 61, 49, 23, 20 & 18)

We LOVED this cottage. Although we stayed in Wales for 2 weeks, we only stayed here for the first week and wished we had stayed the entire time. Not only does the property have a large living room/dining room, it also had another family (reading room). The location was very pretty and there was even a waterfall (Grey Mare's Tail) practically in the backyard!

Nant Cottage was our 5th cottage from Sykes and we just don't know how they can better it. Everything from the welcome scones and supplies to the waterfall virtually in your back garden makes this cottage and location special. I'm hesitant in saying to much as I will want to go back to Nant Cottage in the future and want to make certain that there will be a few free weeks left for me.

The cottage has bags of charm, it's outside detailing is amazing. The location is perfect, set within its own private beautiful gardens. Within walking distance are a castle, the waterfall, the river with cafe. We felt in inside let the property down, the kitchen/utensils are worn, the house is damp and the bats scratching in the roof keep you awake at night. For any techies, there is no/very little phone signal. We would return, but would take less clothes as washing 4 full suitcases of clothes on returning home took the shine away plus baking trays/cooking utensils. The house wasnt supplied with as much 'household' items, dishwasher tablets, fairy liquid, hand washes etc as other cottages so be prepared to bring everything or have Tesco deliver. With no phone signal phone the owner for the cottage phone number to leave as a contact number on the tesco delivery page!

The cottage is in a wonderful location - how many properties have a waterfall in the back garden - and is fantastically well equipped. It is warm, cosy and comfortable. The welcome extended by the owner is second to none - the homemade scones were a lovely touch. We've visited on three occasions now and hope to go back in the future.

Well situated 5 minute drive out of town. Well appointed cottage, and at this time of year a very appreciated log fire. Owners very helpfull and advised who/where to go in Betys-y-coed to seek help with a car problem, which proved to be simple, and was fixed at a reasonable price. All in all our stay was pleasant and we found the Cottage to be well situated to use all of the N Wales Area. (Snowdonia and the Coastal Towns) Cottage was full of character and well equipped. The bridge to enter driveway can be a bit alarming and care needs to be taken if stopping on it to open the gate in the dark, as there is no guard rail.

Idylic setting for an idylic cottage. Lovely walks from the cottage with stream and large waterfall less than a stone throw away. Cottage very comfortable with inglenook fireplace and log burner for the autumn evenings. Withing easy distance of the lovely towns of Bettws Y Coed, Conwy and Llanwrst,with Snowdon and Cader Idris a walkers paradise. A warm welcome from the owner complete with Scones and tea made it a good start to a most enjoyable holiday. Our second visit and just as enjoyable as the first visit.

This place is ideal for either an active or relaxing (or both) holiday. The owners are wonderful, friendly, helpful and accommodating. You could not wish for a more idyllic situation with all amenities and easy access to the surrounding beauty spots. Well worth another visit

The owners of Nant Cottage are lovely, the met us at the cottage with afternoon tea and made us very welcome, again (this was our second visit.) The cottage is very well equipped, my husband was a chef but even he managed to find eveything he needed in the kitchen, the rooms are well decorated with everything you need, tv, freeview, (the freeview box broke while we were there, I rang the owners in the morning and just after tea-time they came with a replacement!) log burning stove, payphone (it is the middle of nowhere so no mobile signal!) and the bedrooms are just lovely, our children (12 and 14) enjoyed being out in the garden looking for the slow worms and other wildlife, feeding the birds, playing in the stream and walking down to the waterfall just behind the cottage, (not recommended for young children unsupervised.) The cottage stands alone in a peaceful location surrounded by trees and nature, very quiet, lovely walks and drives from there, and an old hall just down the road well worth a visit. Without being unnecessarily picky we cannot fault Nant Cottage for a family holiday or get away for couples or friends, people with disabilities might find the spiral staircases tricky to negotiate though.
