One of the toilets was blocked upon our arrival.. The shower in the en suite leaked into the lounge downstairs (not a lot but...) The beds weren't that comfortable - very creaky. Just felt like the whole place was beautiful in the pictures but just needed a little TLC to get it back up to scratch. However we would stay there again!

The cottage was in a beautiful area at the base of Snowdonia national park, and did have all the facilities which were advertised.. It did however let itself down in several areas. 2 out of the 3 beds were falling to pieces, as were some of the other items of furniture, and a deep clean of the whole cottage was in need. WiFi was advertised, and 5 years ago it wouldn't have been a big deal, but nowadays it's considered an absolute must. It was woefully inadequate for today's needs. Also because I couldn't find things to do on the internet due to poor connection, there wasn't any 'tourist information' in the cottage. Every other place I've stayed has had at least something there. Sykes have been terrible this time. No way of phoning the company at all, so I sent 5 emails before the holiday requesting several times to cancel due to the covid pandemic, and my financial situation being self employed. Sykes ignored every single one, but were quick to withdraw the money in full, despite what I had sent them, and then stated they only received my last email, and totally lacking in any empathy whatsoever. Also the feedback email was received immediately after the holiday. I have proof that I've sent each email, all to the same address. It's a poor business model, and disgusting behaviour for any company which I have used before. I won't be using Sykes ever again!!!!

My family and I stayed at Ymylch Bach cottages for a holiday in Snowdonia.. It was a nice size for a family of 4 adults, plus a toddler and a small dog. The views were great, especially the hills surrounding and the sheep in nearby fields. There were 3 toilets (1 downstairs) plus an ensuite shower and separate bathroom, so ideal for a small family. We did unfortunately have a few irritating issues. We had very little hot water and ended up with cold showers for all but 1 day of the holiday, and the owner was quite unresponsive when we contacted them. We also had to give the downstairs a clean as there were a lot of cobwebs and dust throughout. It's a shame as with some regular maintenance and TLC, I'd have happily given this a glowing review.

Cottage is great and in a lovely location.. Also great position apropos road links to the places you are likely to want to visit. It would have been nice if the owner had dropped in at some point just to say "Hello" It would have been nice if there were some soap and washing up liquid provided - you don't realise until later on that they are not there. Would recommend

THIS COTTAGE WAS SHODDY, UNCOMFORTABLE AND DIRTY IN AREAS TO THE EXTENT THAT WE RETURNED HOME AFTER 3 NIGHTS AS OPPOSED TO 6 NIGHTS.. THERE WAS COBWEBS AND SPIDERS IN MANY AREAS OF THE COTTAGE THAT HAD OBVIOUSLEY BEEN THERE FOR A WHILE.THE PAINTWORK WAS MARKED AND DIRTY IN SOME OF THE ROOMS.THE WINDOW IN LOUNGE HAD A BROKEN HANDLE AND THERE WAS A GAP SO THAT IT LET IN A COLD DRAUGHT. THE MAIN BATHROOM HAD PAINT FALLEN FROM THE WALLS REVEALING BARE PLASTER. LIGHT BULBS IN SOME AREAS WERE NOT WORKING ALONG WITH THE MICROWAVE.THE DINING TABLE IS SCRATCHED EXCESSIVLY AND DEFINATLEY SEEN BETTER DAYS. THE SMALL FREEZER IS PLACED IN A DIRTY CUPBOARD IN THE LOUNGE AND WAS UNEVEN SO IT WOBBLED WHEN OPENING AND CLOSING. THERE IS NO WASHING MACHINE OR DRYER EVEN THOUGH THERE IS AMPLE SPACE IN DOWNSTAIRS TOILET.THE SOFA IN THE LOUNGE WAS UNCOMFORTABLE AND DIRTY. THE 2 DOUBLE BEDS WHERE VERY LOW IN HEIGHT AND OF POOR QUALITY AS WELL AS EXCEPTIONALLY UNCOMFORTABLE. ONE DOUBLE YOU CAN NOT WALK EITHER SIDE OF SO HAVE TO CLIMB ONTO IT TO GET IN FROM THE BOTTOM. THE HOT WATER WAS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY ON OUR ARRIVAL HOWEVER A REPAIR MAN ARRIVED ON OUR FIRST DAY THAT WE WAS NOT MADE AWARE OF SO DISRUPTED US FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR ( SURELY THIS COULD HAVE BEEN SORTED BEFORE OUR ARRIVAL IF THE LANDLORD WAS AWARE OF THE PROBLEM.) THE ONLY PLUS WE COULD COMMENT ON IS THE LOCATION PROVIDES WONDERFUL SCENERY. A VERY DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE !!!!

This is a lovely property in an excellent location.. There are loads of walks and cycleways from the property, there are supermarkets 5 mins away and its very convenient for Llanberis, Snowdon, Portmeirion etc etc. We had a very cold week in February but were were very 'toasty' in the property with the lovey wood burner and underfloor heating. I would book this property again.

Routine maintenance checks by the owner/caretaker were not efficient.. Everywhere was very clean but many light bulbs were not working and the spares box contained none of the correct fittings (various) A note was left by us to this effect. One downstairs window had a broken catch, leaving the premises insecure. A Guests Welcome Booklet would be useful clarifying how to operate the heating and cooker, local recycling requirements, etc. A maintenance book for guests to update would be sensible because it is clear from the Visitors Book that previous guests' comments had not been acted upon in a timely manner. Despite the above negative comments, we were very pleased with everything else. Quality of furnishings was excellent, underfloor heating an excellent facility and the showers were great.

The location was easily accessible yet quiet and remote. The cottage was very warm. The surrounding area was rugged and beautiful with lots of dramatic walks and quaint villages. We enjoyed the slate mines and major castles.

A beautiful cottage in an amazing location. Fantastic views from the property. There was so much to do in this area of Wales you couldn't possibly do justice to it all in a week - beach, mountains, castles to name but a few things. We'll try to go back soon. Loved the holiday.

The cottage was in a good location particularly if you are a keen cyclist. It was in excellent order, well appointed,clean and fresh with good facilities for the family. The owners gave you a very good welcome and explained all the relevant details concerning the cottage.The only issue we had was the speed of vehicles coming past the cottage when visting the farm at the top of the drive. This meant we were not happy to let our two grandchildren play outside the cottage unsupervised for fear of vehicles speeding past the cottage.
