“Excellent equiped and spacious holiday cottage in a nice neighbo”
Left on 07/28/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | JavaMoReviewed Jul 28, 2013Stayed May 2013
We visited the cottage as two elderly couples and were very pleased with the spacious rooms. We also were very happy with the two bathrooms, one for each couple. The ladies were very excited about the well equiped kitchen and all the accessoires in it. They like to cook and bake all kind of stuff and they have done their very best. The town centre is a few minutes away by car, but you also can walk to the centre; it is about 15 - 20 minutes. The return from the town centre is a bit harder as you must walk up along a hill, but for those who like to walk it is very well to do, especially if you did have your diner in town and you had a few drinks or glases of wine accompanying your meal.
If it is a bit sunny, the terrace invites you to sit down and enjoy the surroundings with a nice drink at hand and a very well view at Cader Idris. An excellent place for exploring the North-West area of Wales.

Llety'r Bugail is a fantastic property set right on the uplands above Dolgellau, with fabulous views over Cadair Idris and the mountain ranges. It was beautifully clean, well equipped and, more than anything else, dry! The North Welsh weather let us down for the first time ever, but since this was about our 40th trip, it is hardly indicative of what one can normally expect. The area was beautifully quiet, with few but very friendly neighbours, and there was enough wildlife to keep the most ardent of naturalists quiet for a goodly while.
As a result of little or no light pollution, particularly late at night, the night skies were absolutely outstanding, and the provision of patio furniture enhanced the experience.
There are plenty of shops nearby to assuage the hunger of all but the greediest of tourists, and the cottage is a great centre for exploring all of Gwynedd and beyond. We had a superb week, and greatly enjoyed what was provided. As an added bonus, the blackberry bushes were in full fruit, so the resultant pies/crumbles were a joy to behold, and something that the supermarket didn't supply. (Mind you, they did provide the custard!)
All round, an excellent place to get away from the lunatic world we all live in, and recharge the addled brain.

Lovely Cottage on the edge of Dolgellau. Cottage well looked after and extremely well maintained - one of the best we've ever stayed in. All mod cons in a great setting with mountains right on the doorstep. Lots of places to visit locally and plently to do for families. Welcome tray on arrival had excellent cake!

We rented both properties for a family and friends holiday. They were both very well appointed and extremely clean. The view from the balcony and the quiet location more than made up for the long uphill walk after eating out (actually I'm lying, because one of my sons and I drove and didn't drink.
The internal stairway was unlocked for us, making it easy to move between properties.
The outside area under the balcony was ideal for tinkering with bikes, even in rainy weather. Talking of which, the only criticism was the lack of a tumble drier.

Light and very spacious, well-appointed accommodation. Welcoming tray with home-made cake on arrival. We especially liked the pleasant balcony with table and seating accessed through the patio doors. There were only two of us, but the property is well-equipped for six.

Excellent friendly service from Sykes Cottages.
The home was easy to find and we loved the views from the front balcony. Everything inside was clean and modern and the layout was good. Although a short distance from the centre of the village, it was near a supermarket and garage. It was ideally situated for a walking and cycling holiday with the lovely trail along the Mawddach estuary nearby and the Coed-y-Brenin Forest within easy reach. I cannot really think of anything I disliked about it!

This cottage more than lived up to the brochure description. It is one of the very best cottages we have stayed in. All the equipment was perfect, including two superb bathroom/shower rooms. We were four adults and two children with ages from 5 to 73 and really enjoyed our holiday. The welcome pack, including home mad cake, wine, etc made us feel instantly at home and we would recommend it highly.
