Y Bwthyn is situated in a great location for exploring Snowdonia and all of the activities available. The children particularly liked the horses in the surrounding land. The views are stunning and we would book again.

Great cottage to get away from it all with a beautiful lounge to relax in. Amazing views. The owners very helpful but not intrusive. Very well equipped, we would highly recommend.

Y Bwythn is in a lovely, peaceful setting. Beautiful views. I only stayed for three nights but would have loved to have booked it longer.

Wonderful cottage in a superb quiet location which was within striking distance of many interesting places. The property was very clean and nicely prepared for people to stay there, there were very comfortable beds and the owners are friendly and welcoming!

Location was perfect, sufficiently isolated and superb views. Cottage was warm and cosy and everything we needed was available. Owners were friendly and helpful but respected our privacy too.

Y Bwythyn is a beautiful cottage that was situated in the middle of nowhere, on the side of a mountain with wonderful views, yet still perfectly located for easy access to so many lovely places. The enclosed garden/yard was ideal and secure enough to let the dogs out without supervision. The cottage was very clean and well equipped and although we didn't require the use of the log burner, it was a very attractive feature.

We had a little difficulty finding it, but that was our fault as we didn't see the sign on the gate. It is a wonderful place slap bang in the middle of the countryside as far away from anything that you could wish for if that is what you want. We found Y Bwthyn to be well appointed and very comfortable and it was within easy reach of many good walks including the lake Ogwen area

Fabulous location which, despite the weather, delivered everything it promised. Cottage was great, very clean with an excellent utility area for muddy boots, jackets and dogs! Loved the log fire!!!

The cottage was perfect. Great outdoor area. Very private, warm and cosy inside. Owners very friendly, and not at all imposing. Fabulous setting.

Fantastic location, very good property and the hosts were very friendly but respected our privacy. A central location for exploring or just walking.

Weather was brilliant, location of Y Bwythn is excellent for zip world, Velocity and of course Mount Snowdon. Y Bwythn is ideal for people who want peace and quiet but also allows easy excess to many of the local attractions. Certainly will be booking again.

The location of the property suited our needs perfectly. The entrance to the property was brilliant in that there was plenty of room for wet gear and the dog. All in all a great holiday. Thank you so much!

We were looking for a quiet and peaceful holiday which we found at Y Bwthyn. The property is in an ideal location for travelling around and sightseeing. We found the owners very pleasant and friendly, we only saw them twice. The accommodation was as described, ample room for two, very clean and well laid out. Loved the Log Burner. All in all a very pleasant and enjoyable stay, and would have no hesitation making a return visit.

Spent a week here in March before the internal photos were on the site so took a leap of faith as it is in such a great position. And we were not disappointed, fantastic cottage with beautiful views down the valley to the sea and lots of walking in the area. Internally the cottage has all mod cons, we were particularly fond of the 'eerie' as we called it for sitting in and reading.

The cottage was in a lovely position with great views from the windows. A really peaceful setting, but only 15 minutes to the nearest town.

We fell in love with the cottage straight away. It was finished to a superb standard and its position could not have been better for seeing all the local sights and attractions. The owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed in this cottage for 3 nights at the end of October for the snowdonia marathon. Two adults one teenager and our two dogs, this cottage was just perfect for our needs. There was a barra brith cake, jug of milk in the fridge with tea & coffee waiting for us on our arrival which was a lovely touch. We are looking to visit the area again sometime next year, & this cottage is top of our list for a place to stay. The cottage is very clean with plenty of room and only a few miles less than 10 minutes from Llanberis. Thank you to the owners for a lovely stay in your cottage.

Booked this property for an engagement holiday for myself and partner. We haven't been on holiday in well over a year due to work commitments. We searched for an isolated, dog friendly property. This came up. On arrival,it was obvious that the area was rural,but the property wasn't isolated. There was a property next door (but detached). It is in fact the owners who live next door. The property itself is stunning, smart finish and lovely views. However, the property was clearly not cleaned prior to our arrival. We found pubic hairs scattered around the toilet, bath and basin. There was also faeces in the toilet pan, but no cleaning products in the property. On closer inspection, the mattress protector was covered in pubic hair. Our feet were left black after walking bare foot. The property had clearly not been cleaned for sometime as there was deep seeded dirt everywhere. The property folder mentions leaving the property as you find it. This can only let me assume that the owners are relying on guests to clean after themselves. We left on the second morning. I wanted to leave on the first day after our outing to llanberris, but ice and bad weather meant we had to stay the second night. I have complained to sykes and since received a full refund. I'm sure the property cleaner would have been informed, and this problem rectified for future guests. I dont like calling people out, but unfortunately this completely ruined our holiday, and i wouldn't anyone else to suffer the same fate.

This property was a real home from home. A quality conversion in which you can see where the money has been spent. If you like peace and solitude, you'll love this cottage.
Mr Galbraith

This was our second visit to this property. We are already booked to return next May.
Ms Drew

The property was clean, comfortable, peaceful and had stunning views. The location was ideal for walking in Llanberis, Beddgellert and Capel Curig etc. The owners were warm and friendly and really helpful.
Mr Oliver

Fabulous little gem of a cottage in a fantastic peaceful location, within easy reach of many walks and indoor activities.
Mr Galbraith
September 2012
We didn't want to go home - would that be sufficient praise? Having spent the past fifty years holidaying in North Wales we can say with conviction this has been amongst, if not, the best. We shall return.

My wife and I stayed in this cottage for a week in June 2015 with our 2 dogs. This idyllic, stone-built, detached cottage is situated in an elevated position on the slopes of Elidir Fach Mountain with views across the countryside to Anglesey and Snowdonia. Fully converted from an 1850s shippon, this delightful Llanberis cottage offers spacious ground floor accommodation with a king-size bedroom with distant sea views, a large open plan living area with a sofa bed, a galleried ceiling with original oak beams, a crog loft where you can sit and read, and a warming multi-fuel stove to sit and relax in front of on cooler evenings. The above is copied from the sykes cottages site but describes perfectly. The cottage was clean and well equipped with everything we needed it even had wifi that was not mentioned. The location is a bit remote for shops pubs etc but this did not bother us. It is great for dogs with a large fenced off garden. There is great walking direct from the cottage and excellent views. The only slight negative on our visit was the grass on the garden area and around the outside seat was fairly long. We would recommend a visit to this cottage and would visit again.

The cottage is very well placed for days out without having to travel too far. The views from the cottage are stunning. There are mountains in one direction and the coast in the other - magic! Everyone we met was so friendly. The area was lovely and peaceful with sheep outside.
