Very Good

“Spotless, high quality stay!”

Reviewed 19 May 2020

I may have stayed in this holiday cottage over 2 years ago, but I can still remember the high quality stunning cottage perfectly. I had two 'long term' stays at Tyddyn Syndey Bach whilst completing my PGCE course at Bangor University. The location was perfect as it was a 5 minute drive to the University and the cottage is in a stunning garden round the back of the owners house. The owners were very friendly and, as they lived on-site, were always willing to help if any issues arose. They have fantastic knowledge of the area and were always willing to recommend interesting places to visit. I would wholeheartedly recommend this holiday cottage to anybody!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us. It is heartwarming when people arrive as guests and leave as friends. We look forward to welcoming you back to Tyddyn Sydney Bach in the future.

Owner's reply: I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your three-day break. We have been letting out the cottage for 15 years and in all that time there have only been a tiny number of problems. The vast majority of guests have thoroughly enjoyed their stay and many return. I am disappointed that you felt the heating was not on despite the Far-infrared heating panels thermostat being set at 24 C, the towel radiator and underfloor being at 21C, with a fan heater and throws being available to you. Especially as you told me that the cottage was lovely and warm on your arrival and when you returned from your walks. I live on the grounds so I was happy to respond to you immediately on the several occasions you called on me from the first evening, as I had invited you to when I showed you around the cottage. I am sorry that the internet went down one evening. Unfortunately, this was due to an outage which affected the whole area and was totally beyond our control. I do everything in my power to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable. So when you asked if you could check in four hours before the agreed time, I agreed willingly. When you left the dishes, pans and kitchen dirty I did not ask for cleaning costs (as other holiday cottage landlords would do routinely.) We enjoy greeting our new guests who frequently leave as friends and welcoming returning guests as our reviews will testify

“Ideal place to stay”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2018

I booked this cottage because the location was ideal for the places we wanted to visit without having to travel too far. The cottage was perfect. It was so comfortable and very well equipped. Les the owner had obviously put a great deal of thought into equipping the cottage and it really felt like a home from home. We were greeted by Les on our arrival and she made us feel so welcome and she then let us into the cottage where she had provided welsh cakes and butter along with muesli for our breakfast and a beautiful vase of roses. We so enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

“Oasis of peace in beautiful countryside”

Reviewed 25 May 2018

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Les as very accommodating changing our dates when the snow stopped our travel plans! The cottage is very comfortable and well worth the five stars allocated. The gardens are pretty in spring. The area well worth a visit with much to see and do in the surrounding area. We visited Penryn Castle which was amazing, Plas Newydd, Llyn Peninsula, drove up into Snowdonia and rode the Snowdonia Mountain Railway. took a trip into the electric mountain and sauntered on Beaumaris Pier. Each day we returned to our home base which was welcoming and others so comfortable. The little extra touches of Welsh Cakes, jam and cream, flowers on the table, hlpful notes about the cottage and the area, all made our stay very enjoyable. We had a marvellous few days and will not hesitate to return. Thank you to our hosts for everything they did to make our stay so lovely.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely words. We are delighted you enjoyed your holiday. We enjoy looking after our guests and sharing our beautiful area. We look forward to welcoming you back to Tyddyn Sydney Bach in the future.
