We had a superb relaxing week, Me, my wife our grandson and our two friends and their son. Just the place for two 9 yr old boys to run around like mad and exhaust themselves. All amenities very good and as described in the brochure, 2 bathrooms and downstairs w/c great for us all. The owner, I think we nicknamed him the 'Colonel', nice chap and very helpful. Cottage in perfect location in the valley and when the weather was fine (most of the week) just right to sit in the garden with a glass of wine soaking up the beautiful scenery. Had to light a real fire as it was there...brill.
Lovely walk through the yard area across the fields down to the river Dee.
Took the boys fishing and the proximity of the canal was brilliant...the other side of the hedge!!! And in the early morning lovely to hear the narrowboats slowly chugging past.
Would recommend the Bryn Howell Hotel...over the canal bridge through the gate and across the yard. Lovely hotel and very good reasonably priced food. Try the steak and ale pie..hmm hmm.
Worth a trip to the Horseshoe falls (origin of the canal) but we never got the sun pub at Trevor.
The walk from the cottage to Llangollen is a bit longer that the cottage book says it is...but in the right weather a lovely stroll.
The Llangollen steam heritage railway is defo worth a trip on. We hired a day narrowboat and did the return trip over the Pontyscyllte aqueduct...fantastic but make sure you've gold hold of the kids!!! The wharf does do day drips if hiring a day boat is out of your budget (£120). Llangollen...nice town. Big Tescos about 3 miles up the road.
Drove to Conwy and walked around the castle wall though the weather was very inclement so put a dampener on it, couldn't see Snowdon due to low cloud.
It is really difficult to put some negatives into this text as we all said "We could live here", a comment only made when it's true.
We would stay at this cottage again without doubt.
A wonderful retreat with views to die for and all home comforts

The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The house was in a fantastic setting with great walks from the door along the lovely canel. The location could not have been better, a short walk from Llangollen or the viaduct in the other direction. Very dog friendly holiday. Would love to visit and stay at this superb accomodation again.
It was a really comfortable home from home

My husband and I stayed with two friends while the International Eisteddfodd was on in Llangollen. The cottage is next to the canal and we were able to easily walk into Llangollen along the canal path. One of the highlights of our week was hiring a canal barge for the day and travelling across the aqueduct, a bit scary at first but well worth it. We also went to Portmeirion which was delightful and on to anglesey where we had a superb lunch one day.
The cottage itself was really clean and had everything we could have wanted. We were there in 'Summer'time but I would think it would be very cozy for an autumn/Winter break. There was a very welcome tea tray laid for us when we arrived with home made flap jacks.
The cottage is in a quiet spot but close the the Bryn Howell Hotel if you want to eat out within a couple of minutes walking distance. We did not eat there.The garden at the cottage is pretty and has a bbq and outside seating area if you are lucky with the weather. We sat outside for breakfast most mornings because the views are lovely.
Overall we had an excellent time (not even marred by the weather which was not very good for a lot of the time)
The people that we we dealt with when booking the holiday with Sykes Cottages were very pleasant and helpful

This is our 2nd visit and we love the cottage,it is clean and perfect for dogs to have their own garden to run around in. The area is peaceful and the owners are helpful and friendly if needed,we did not see then all week but they live in a house in the grounds of the cottage you rent so there is no problems with them checking you and feeling watched,so I would say this is a perfect holiday base with a quiet and peaceful garden to sit out in and have wine in the evenings! There are some good pubs in the area and Sainsburys near by for a big shop,we did find a new Tesco's but this is not signed posted so can be hard to find,once you find it you are fine, there is an Hotel just across the bridge by the cottage and the food there is very nice,but some of the pubs near by are hit and miss so look a bit further away. We hope anyone who chooses this cottage feels the same way about it,you will love the setting and peacefulness of the cottage.
great location lovely holiday home

The property provided comfort and cleanliness and suited both old and young in our party. The location suited short and long walks with plenty of attractions to visit locally.

Exceeded our expectations.

Met on arrival by owners who were extremely welcoming. We didn't have to trouble them during our stay but they were always around. The accommodation was very comfortable and well equiped. The location for us couldn't have been better for a "get away from it all" break. Mutley the dog was happy but even our two teenagers were able to chill and enjoyed the walks and peaceful surroundings. Llangollen of course is a very pretty town and serviced out needs. We were blessed with some beautiful weather but even if it had not have been good we were quite happy to walk and relax which this holiday offered in abundance.

A wonderful place in a beautiful setting
Left on 11/04/2010 for a stay in August 2010 | Pete & Sue
Such a homely feel to the property, with lots of personal touches and exceptional fixtures and fittings. It felt very spacious for the four of us. It was a little far away from the locations we were wanting to visit; that's no fault of the property or our excellent hosts, but Welsh roads made eveywhere we visited (mainly north coast) at least 90 minutes away. We would thoroughly reccommend this venue.
Fabulous Cottage - Wonderful Owners
Left on 06/06/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | DavidA
Quite simply, one of the most amazing cottages we have ever stayed in. We were the first paying guests and literally, nothing was too much trouble for our charming owners. The cottage is perfection itself - big enough, warm, extremely well-equipped and tastefully decorated and furnished. Very welcoming to outdoors types - providing dry and warm storage for wet, muddy walking boots and 5 mountain bikes. The view from the kitchen window is to die for - I spent long periods watching the ever changing weather and the impact on the view.
The had never met the owners before, but we wish them very best wishes - they deserve to do very well with the beuatiful haven they have created. We've already recommended the cottage to several friends and hope to return next year.
