Llechwedd Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Llechwedd is a stunning detached cottage on the edge of Dolgellau, with wonderful views over the Cader Idris mountains. The cottage has a king-size double master bedroom with en-suite shower room, a double room and a room with adult bunks. There is a house bathroom and an additional ground floor cloakroom. The kitchen has a breakfast bar and a dining area with comfy seating and TV, and there is a cosy sitting room. Outside is off road parking for three cars and a raised patio area with furniture, along with a sloping lawned area and front seating area too. Llechwedd is a luxurious base for enjoying Dolgellau, the coastline, biking and walking trails and of course, the mountains of Snowdonia.

Located in the heart of southern Snowdonia, between the imposing Cader Idris mountain range and the sea, is the small market town of Dolgellau. This fabulous holiday base is a prefect spot from which to combine the many outdoor pursuits on offer in Snowdonia with the soft sandy beaches of Barmouth, Fairbourne and Aberdovey. With a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat the town is well placed for access to other nearby coastal resorts. This is a quiet, peaceful location, ideal for outdoor activities amongst the superb scenery, mountains, forests, waterfalls, castles and beaches.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The cottage was warm, cosy and welcoming. It was just a short stroll into town and a good base for the area.

Luxury accommodation, ideally situated in a peaceful setting, but still within a few minutes walk of the town. Stunning views from the property. The owner was very helpful providing local information on places to visit and places to eat etc.

Overall the standard of the property was very good. The property was spacious and well laid out. It was nicely furnished and was very light and airy. The property was very clean and had most of the things we needed for a good holiday. The position near the town was convenient and access to surrounding areas was good.

We were completely blown away with the cottage, everything was immaculate and decorated beautifully. The kitchen was our favourite room and we thoroughly enjoyed cooking in there. The location is pretty perfect; it is only a 10 to15 minute walk to Dolgellau which is lovely the beaches are very beautiful. We will definitely return, thank you for a wonderful holida

What a lovely, comfortable property Llechwedd is, worth every penny of the rental! Dolgellau is a very nice little town with a nice selection of shops and lovely places to eat. Great variety of things to do within 10 mile area. The views from the house are amazing and I would love to return when the trees are changing colour, it must be spectacular! We certainly hope to return in the future.

This lovely detached cottage is in a great location, perfect for cycling holidays and close to many attractions. The accommodation was clean and well appointed and the outdoor space private with great views over Cadar Idris. Very rarely does a holiday home live up to the brochure description, but this one actually exceeds expectations!

Lechwedd is a gorgeous house, with plenty of room and everything we needed and more. Very comfortable and spacious. The area is perfect for those wanting to visit various parts of Snowdonia and there are plenty of great walks to go on locally. Dolgellau, the town in which the property is situated has plenty of amenities and lots of old quirky streets to admire.

What a lovely house.. It's the second time we have stayed here. The views are to die for, the house has everything you could need on holiday except it could do with a dryer.. and our sheets were very bitty if you know what I mean (old). Thanks though, we had a fabulous holiday x

I have always been a fan of Sykes, having been a regular customer for many years.. However, the acid test is when a business faces a customer challenge, and you see how the company responds. I rented the cottage, Llechwedd in Dolgellau mid Jan 2019. It is a large hillside detached house with big rooms and corridors.The central heating is oil fired and it broke down due to boiler failure three quarters of the way into our holiday. The owner promptly came over with a couple of noisy warm air blowers. These were not nearly enough to keep the house habitable and ineffective as a central heating substitute. We hunkered down in the kitchen which was the only room that we could get warm. The rest of the house remained freezing. The boiler repair man said the spare part for the boiler could not be fitted until our due departure date. We decided to leave early and go home as the house was too cold. The owner and Sykes have been absolutely dogmatic that provision of warm air blowers is an adequate substitute for a full CH system in a Welsh January. This was definitely NOT the case. I have explained to the owner and Sykes that I understand that problems and breakdowns can happen, but that we, the customers have lost a couple of days of our holiday for which we made a payment. I am not after a rebate on the money we paid for the rental, more an acknowledgement/apology of how much we were inconvenienced. All responses from the owner/Sykes have been defensive and dismissive of our problem, which frankly I find very poor behaviour. I have suggested that as a goodwill gesture a small value voucher towards our next possible Sykes cottage holiday would make for good customer relations. This has not been forthcoming either. So overall I have felt very disappointed at my treatment by the owner and Sykes who basically say being left with no Central Heating in a Welsh January is fine. Bob

Mr Collins of Llechwedd was a perfect host! He was always there on the telephone for any inquiries that I had. Overall, the cottage was beautiful, well maintained and it’s interior was thoughtfully designed. Everything about this Sykes Cottage was great, I recommend this cottage for a family of 6 or 7. Very spacious.

We thought it a bit mean that there were not more towels as we were paying for a property that sleeps 6.. Otherwise the property was very nice.
Mr Love
September 2018
Just to be aware that the drive into the property is very steep! OK once you have done it a few times. But it's worth it for the wonderful views and if you're up to it climb to the top of garden for an even better view of Dolgellau and Cader Idris. The house is wonderful, spacious and beautifully presented a credit to the owner David did all the work himself. Will definitely visit again.
Ms Chapman

Idealy situated for all areas of Wales ie beach & coast, trekking, historic, lakes and mountains.. The town is on your doorstep with plenty of eateries and waterholes and the added bonus of a eurospar supermarket if needed. Very comfortable property with great views.

I took my boyfriend away for a long weekend to stay at Llechwedd and it did not dissapoint! The cottage was cosy, clean and David was very helpful! He sent me an itinery with things we could do whilst we were there and beaches to visit which we did and it was amazing! Thanks again for a lovely stay and we will be back no doubt!

This house was amazing.. I'd love to live here all year round. Incredibly comfortable, wonderfully equipped, spotlessly clean house. Perfectly positioned as it was only a short walk into Dolgellau, via a lovely footpath running alongside the river. Fantastic views from the property, and David, the owner, was very informative with letting us know of places to visit. Would love to come back for some more walking and stay here again.
