great location max 60 mins drive to most attractions but most witin 30 mins this cottage had virtually everything you would need even usb chargers! the only complaint was parking inaccuracy in the description there was loads of it if you could get a space anoying when wet one of the most comfortable beds ive slept in away from home unfortunatley the local pub is closed :(

Nice cottage thought of everything even chargers for phones ! ! well placed as a base to explore north wales the bed was one of the most comfortable ive ever slept in away from home:) shame about the street light outside which made the room quite light but we got used to that the only complaint is the details states ample parking from that statement you would expect to be able to park, Not true if theres a space then you can but on 3 occasions we couldnt. kind of had to park around the corner in a side street not sure if i was really safe to park where i did so had to keep looking out if there was space and move. i found this quite anoying especially if it was wet I think this should be stated more acurately in the description

Bodalaw cottage is a great holiday cottage in beautiful Wales.. The cottage is very cosy and well equipped. We had a splendid time there and enjoyed the beautiful countryside and climbed Mount Snowdon in the mist. Wales was beautiful and we were very fortunate to have three days of great weather. The only thing that bothered us was that the village pub was closed permanently. On your site it says that there is a pub at walking distance. But it is not open anymore!

We thoroughly enjoyed our break at Bodalaw, despite the weather.. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. The village shop/post office is excellent and very convenient. The only inaccuracy in the listing is that there is no longer a pub in the village.
Mrs Cook
July 2018
It can be noisy in the early morning due to deliveries to village shop.. We notice this as we don't live on a road at home. The pub in the village is now closed.The cottage makes a good base for exploring the Rhinogs.There is no means of making coffee in the cottage.But apart from that its well equipped.Good standard of cleanliness.

I had a lovely holiday in a beautiful part of the country.. The cottage had all that I could need, and more, however I was disappointed with the second bedroom. It has no window and only a small uncomfortable bed that could use a new mattress. Had I known that the second room would not be comfortable for my mother then I would not have chosen this cottage. Perhaps the room is usually only used for children? I had read a review which described the small bedroom as 'quirky'. That we really unhelpful as I assumed it referred to the decor and not to the fact that it felt like sleeping in a cupboard, except there is a stained glass window in it that leads into the bathroom! The cottage is in a very pretty village and the locals are very friendly.

Mr Wilkins

The facilities provided at the cottage was outstanding, from hiking packs and walking sticks to all kitchen tools,torches and even peanut top-ups for the bird feeder, as well as portable heaters for every room, (although these were not needed) a village shop just yards away provided any food items that may be required.. The cottage exceeded all expectations.
Mr Parkinson

Lovely cottage, great location if touring the railways of North Wales.. Very well equipped with comprehensive advice provided. Quirky second bedroom. Good Wi-Fi and television via Sky. May be worth taking your viewing card. Overall we thought it was a beautiful cottage in an excellent location.

Mrs Williams

The cottage Bodalaw in Trawsfynydd made an excellent base for us. We all really liked the cottage - quite apart from being comfortable and well-equipped, it felt like a house you could live in, and not just one that had been set up as a holiday house.
Mrs Christie

It was a bonus, that after we had been out walking in such a lovely area, we could return to a cosy, clean cottage where everything you could think of was provided. Highly recommended!

Location was great. The enclosed garden meant we could safely let our dog out.
Mrs Pizey

A well equipped cottage - even supplied bowls and bits for the dog.
December 2012
A lovely welcoming cottage with everything you could possibly need for a carefree, relaxing holiday. The village shop almost next door, friendly locals and situated as it is means you can easily explore north, east, south and west. Can definitely recommend it. Just one tip: if you don't get back to the cottage before the locals get back from work in the evening the parking spaces in the off road bay can be full.
Mr Fox
August 2012
The cottage was great - well heated and furnished. We wouldn't have chosen another one, as this had everything and plenty of space!

Cottage in the middle of the village. Good shop and excellent pub near the house. Many good pubs and restaurants in the area. The cottage furnishings were excellent and even cleaned in the middle of stay.

This cottage has everything anyone could need on holiday. It was clean tidy and very comfortable. The village is quiet and friendly with a well stocked convenience store practically next door. Stay here and enjoy your time in north Wales.
June 2012
A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the country, the open fire gives the cottage a homely feel (wood provided) and facilities are excellent. A selection of board games, films and CD's are also available. Contrary to a previous comment, parking was never a problem. Would definately recommend.
October 2011
Lovely clean well equipped cottage. Good access to Snowdon, Port Merrion, beaches and some lovely local towns/villages.
October 2011
Apart from the parking this holiday home was all that you could wish for.
September 2011
Comfortable, well equipped cottage situated in friendly village with countryside views. Excellent position for visiting many different types of places and attractions.
R Parker
September 2011
The cottage was in a fabulous location, with easy distances to most attractions. The cottage itself was very clean and a very comfortable place to stay; all the facilities you required. My friends and I felt there was no need to install an internet connection, a holiday for us is relaxing and sight-seeing. I say this because a comment left in the guest book stated it would be a better place if there was an internet connection. There are plenty of holiday lets in North Wales area that advertise an internet connection - so do not choose a let that has no interent. I think that is an unfair expense to put on the owners. I would recommend Sykes Holiday Cottages to all. The whole service was faultless.
Mrs Wright
August 2011
The cottage is a great location for visits in and around the local area with lots to see well within an hour; beaches at Barmouth and Harlech, castles, villages like Bala, Portmerion and Mount Snowdon. The lake near cottage has a lovely walk around it.

Easy to find well appointed, helpful information file provided. Thorough enjoyed first trip to Wales Portmerion and Canarfon Castle a must see
