We had a lovely relaxing week in this gorgeous Welsh Cottage and would definitely recommend it and book it again for future holidays.. The cottage and gardens are great. Our dog loved being in the gardens and we all enjoyed watching the birds there. The front room is small but cosy, especially with the log burner in the evening, and the beds were comfortable. Hubby struggled with the low ceilings, but otherwise it was a perfect little getaway.
Lovely welcome pack and useful information on arrival was much appreciated.
The owners are lovely and were very helpful when we had problems with the WiFi.
Our week away in Haulfryn was just the tonic we needed after shielding for months due to COVID-19. Thank you!

Beautiful cottage with amazing views and very comfy beds
Miss Banks, August 2020
Just back from a weeks holiday in this beautiful cottage and what a fabulous week we had.. It’s very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The log burner is lovely on a chilly evening and very cosy. We were lucky enough to have some sunshine so could spent time in the immaculate gardens, which are bursting with flowers, perfect to watch the sun go down and full of birds and wildlife. The views surrounding this beautiful cottage are stunning!
The local pub is in walking distance and very friendly, the food was great too, they even served a vegan curry that was delicious.
Thank you for an awesome holiday, we’d definitely recommend it!
Mrs Theophanides, July 2020
Beautiful location & views from the cottage made our stay a relaxing week.. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side but we were very cosy sat in front of the log burner playing board games. Phone signal was non existent but isn’t that the reason to go away to somewhere like this? The WiFi was brilliant anyway so you aren’t completely cut off. The beds were very comfy and everywhere was clean & tidy. Plenty of books on offer to read as well as watching the wildlife from the windows. On the two days we managed to get out we visited the waterfall & Betws-y-Coed which were both within an hours drive. We also visited the inn down the road one night for a meal which was lovely & dog friendly. We will definitely be back, thank you!
Miss Reece, February 2020
We had a great time there, hoping to book again this year
Mr Botezatu Zafiu, December 2019
Excellent cottage with all equipment and facilities we needed and more.. Loved relaxing in front of the fire in the evening after spending the day exploring and walking the beautiful countryside.
Mr Woodard, September 2019
A delightful, comfortable and extremely well-equipped cottage.. As it rained on most days we particularly appreciated the central heating. The garden is delightful and the birdlife was amazing. Altogether a really pleasant holiday cottage.
Mr Mantle, October 2019
When booking and again just prior to departure I made a particular point as to the location of the local pub as we planned to take our evening meals there and it was a key element in our choice.. I was assured it was within easy walking distance. This is not the case, it is in fact 3/4 mile away down a road that for much of its length has no pavement and of course no street lighting. This spoilt our stay and is particularly annoying to be mislead by your staff.
The cottage is excellent, well equipped, comfortable and with wonderful views. For your information the lack of a phone signal and internet would stop us from staying there again. This was clearly stated in the details but when issues such as the above crop up one realises how useful communications are.
Mrs Yates, September 2019
Firstly we had a good holiday despite the inaccuracy of the listing.. However-
1. The cottage living space was much smaller than it looks on the photos , lounge very small for 4adults.
2. The bathrooms were all quite grubby, we had to clean them all before using ( beard trimmings in sink in en suite, dirty shower etc) we left them much cleaner than when we arrived!
3. The mobile signal is absolutely nil anywhere for miles
4. The pub in the village is 3/4 mile, between 10/15 mins walk along the road which has no footpath for the first half, wouldn’t like to walk it in the dark. Only 1 pub was open all the time we were there.
4. Shop is 3 miles away & small - bring supplies with you.
5. There are some beautiful walks here but many footpaths are poorly sign posted & maintained, be particularly careful up the mountain behind the house.
On the plus side -
The garden is lovely, beautifully designed & maintained.

The Accuracy of the listing was pretty much spot on, like saying some vehicle .... The Accuracy of the listing was pretty much spot on, like saying some vehicle noise may be heard due to the Road and the poor mobile phone reception in the cottage and general area, the lack of phone reception was one of the reasons we choose the property, to have a break away from phones, the cottage had everything you may need and then some, excellent cottage for walkers and dog friendly
Mr Patch, August 2019
Beautiful house and stunning surroundings everything you need is in the house .... Beautiful house and stunning surroundings everything you need is in the house even had wine milk and water eggs left which was lovely
This was a very well equipped cottage in every respect.. However the fact that we were unable to use our mobile ‘phones did cause a problem when we needed to make an urgent call. The public telephone in the village was not working, and we had to go to the public house to use their landline which in turn kept dropping out. We feel this should be made known in the general information about the cottage. We will. certainly book another holiday with Sykes.
The location was lovely and remote.. The lack of signal was what we wanted. The privacy was lovely. The cottage and gardens were well maintained and the decore and facilities were excellent. The only faults were that the beds weren’t very comfortable, the local walks weren’t accessible and the door frames were very low. Despite the latter being labelled we still managed to bang our heads quite a bit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and so did our furry friend.
This cottage looks lovely from the outside but very disappointing on the inside extremely dirty, used soap and dirty nail rush left in the bathrooms.. Mouldy shower . Mould in the bedrooms not to mention the thick dust behind the beds and on the bedside tables , cobwebs everywhere. My family had to leave this cottage early .
A wonderful cottage in an idyllic location with well kept gardens and a well equipped cottage.. Well located for visits `to Bala, Barmouth, Oswestry and Llanglollen. Owners`left milk and eggs as well as a bottle of wine that was really appreciated. Weather great all week and some good walks in the local area that are not too strenuous, although it is a climb back to the cottage from the village.Would use this cottage again.
The central heating didn't fully warm the house you needed to use the wood burner but unfortunately the kitchen wood burner was out of use which was advertised as two wood burners.. we needed to use the kitchen wood burner as it came very cold.
the price of the logs seemed quite high for the amount in each bag.
Our fourth time at Haulfryn and we still love the cottage, the gardens and the village.. There are wonderful walks right from the front door and also a little further afield. With everything we could want for us right within the cottage, we'll definitely be back for another visit!
The cottage itself was amazingly well equipped.. We found everything we needed. Around the cottage were lovely objects d'art....far more than I have ever seen in other holiday homes. I am hoping to return!
We stayed here over the Christmas week, it was fabulous. A Very well equipped cottage. The log burner was great, made it lovely & cosy. Plenty of books to read & a few games to play. Cottage is near Lake Vernwy & I can recommend the New Inn pub just a short walk away. Very reasonable priced menu. Area is great for walks & the views are fantastic. Over Christmas we had various weather from windy to frosty mornings to beautiful sunny days which was great as we went to Barmouth beach around an hours drive away. Lots of wildlife in the cottage garden from around 20 blue tits at a time, a couple of robins, pheasants & to top it off a woodpecker. Comfortable beds & the cottage well heated. The cottage does have a washing machine & fridge & also a dishwasher but we never used this as it was lovely to look outside the window at the birds.Would definitely recommend this cottage & I would go back there. The owner Chris was very helpful & informative.
It was just wonderful, peaceful and amazing location and breath taking scenery all around, great walks and so relaxing and a big thanks to Chris and Liz for their offers of help and kindness, look forward to the next visit..
A simply wonderful cottage.. Anyone visiting Wales in November should pack for every weather (which we did) and yet coming back to the cosy Haulfryn after a long, wet walk is everything we could have hoped for. Very well furnished and equipped so it feels much more homely than many a holiday home. We'll definitely be back again!
No telephone in case of emergencies, which was rather worrying as we are both over 75 yrs and unable to walk far..
Mrs Jackson, October 2016
The cottage was absolutely wonderful and the only reason I would not return was that it was very difficult to find somewhere to walk my dog in the locality off the lead..
Miss Seidman, September 2016
It was a lovely break in a very comfortable cottage with everything we needed..
Mrs Symms, August 2016
This cottage was so homely, in fact we didn't want to come home! It has beautiful gardens, views, décor, layout, facilities and homely touches. A perfect week. We couldn't wait to get back to the cottage after a day out and also felt so comfortable there we actually didn't leave it some days. Just idyllic.
A beautiful cottage with fabulous gardens, in a wonderful setting. The owners are very friendly and approachable and their cottage is a little gem.

The cottage was very homely, the kitchen was very well equipped, the beds were very comfortable and the en suite bathrooms were an extra luxury. The garden was extremely beautiful and the views were stunning. The owner of this cottage has gone to great lengths to ensure that all areas of the visitors stay have been catered for, and my only disappointment was not having a longer stay.

This was a wonderfully presented period cottage, well equipped and spotless. The surrounding gardens were stunning with views across the Berwyn Mountains. I have already sent the link for this site to 12 people, following my strong recommendations!!

We could not fault Haulfryn in any way whatsoever! We received a friendly welcome from the owner when we arrived on Friday afternoon. We do many dog friendly breaks in the UK and have to say this was one of the best equipped kitchens we have come across. The terraced garden and views at the rear of the property are just wonderful! And views in the front are spectacular! We loved it and will definitely be back!
