Our Reviews

Take a look at what our guests say...

I’d love to share with you some of the wonderful reviews our guests have said about their stays at Tyddyn Sydney Bach. It makes me so happy to read each review and see how much our little cottage has been a part of so many special memories.

Many of our guest reviews mention how Tyddyn Sydney Bach is a cosy and relaxing haven, perfect for a peaceful holiday for two. William and I always aim to keep the cottage spotlessly clean and well-equipped, so it feels like a home away from home. And, of course, the lovely garden adds to the charm!

Our location here near Bangor, just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Menai Strait, is something many of our guests appreciate. Guest reviews reveal that our guests love being close to the mountains, the sea, and all the historical sites that North Wales and Anglesey have to offer. It's always a pleasure to suggest places to visit and dine – there's so much to explore around here!

What truly warms my heart is when guests come back to visit us again. Some even call Tyddyn Sydney Bach their 'happy place', which is the most wonderful compliment. It feels like welcoming old friends each time they return.

Our reviews shown below are a treasure trove of kind words and memories. From couples celebrating anniversaries to those simply seeking a tranquil getaway, each message is a reminder of the special moments shared here.

I hope this gives you a little glimpse into the experiences that await at Tyddyn Sydney Bach. William and I would be delighted to welcome you and help create lasting memories for you too.

Best wishes,

Hi-Spec/Hi-Tech Cottage situated in Beautiful Established Grounds

We arrived a little early (3pm arrival) but Les welcomed us into the accommodation and gave a thorough introduction to where everything was and how it all worked. We quickly got settled (thanks for the Welsh cakes, gorgeous roses, tea, coffee, milk, etc!) This thoughtfully appointed hi-spec/hi-tech cottage is situated in beautiful established grounds - a real nature haven! We couldn't have asked for a more perfectly situated homely base for our week's holiday in North Wales and Anglesey. Although the weather was pretty good for the whole week we'd love to come back in summer to experience this wonderful part of the world again! Thanks Les for your hospitality, care and attention of this wee holiday sanctuary. Enjoy Summer 2024!

Perfect Stay!

The cottage is beautifully presented, immaculately clean and well appointed. Set in a lovely secluded garden area. Attentive host, Les was very thoughtful and considerate throughout our stay. We were visiting our daughter who is studying at Bangor University and the cottage is conveniently located for the town centre as well as a great location for exploring the wider North Wales area and Anglesey. Thank you for a perfect stay, we hope to return!

Delightful Cottage Perfect Base for Exploring

This delightful cottage was the perfect base for hiking and paddleboarding, both on Anglesey, and also in Snowdonia. The cottage itself was larger than we expected, tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean. It is set in the beautiful grounds of the house, however it feels cleverly secluded with its own private patio area. Les was welcoming and a great source of local knowledge - thank you. We enjoyed the welcome treats and fresh flowers too. We always looked forward to returning to Tyddyn Sydney Bach after a long day's hike. We would thoroughly recommend this cosy cottage.

Lovely Bungalow for Two!

We have just returned from a week's holiday at Tyddyn Sydney Bach, you drive up the lane and the gate opens to a wonderful garden and Tyddyn Sydney Bach. A lovely bungalow for two with everything you could ask for set in the gardens. Les and William were perfect hosts, and the situation is ideal for exploring Anglesey and North Wales.

Very Comfortable and Thoughtfully Appointed Cottage

Very comfortable and thoughtfully appointed cottage in a lovely setting.  Despite the weather, we have had a great week exploring an area we have never got to before.  Bodnant Garden was the highlight - it didn't rain until the evening!  Big bath rowels - Hurrah!

What an Amazing Wee Nook!

Les welcomed us early Saturday afternoon and proceeded to give us the most usefully comprehensive introductory show-around of Tyddyn Sydney Bach.  Within an hour of arrival we were graced with the welcome of a pheasant and a jay.  In the days since we've heard song thrush, siskins, blackcap and all the usual feathered thugs of the garden.  During our stay we've visited Menai Strait, Isle of Anglesey  (a red squirrel stronghold), Llandudno, Portmeirion and Bethesda (for ZipWorld Velocity!).  Only one day was shortened due to it dinging-it-doon (raining)  but we managed to complete the dune walk near Newborough  to Llanddwyn beach (Anglesey) with our getting soaked.  Thanks for your hospitality and enjoy Summer 2024!

Gem of a Cottage Set in Beautiful Grounds

Tyddyn Sydney Bach is a gem of a cottage set in beautiful grounds.  Les is a first class host, always available when needed - thank you.  Clean and comfortable, we look forward to returning.  Hopefully to explore the gardens in better weather and visit more of the wonderful area.  Ticked off walk at Aber Falls, Penrhyn Castle, Plas Mawr at Conwy, Bodnant Gardens, spectacular end of October and Plas Newydd.

Lovely Cottage and Beautiful Gardens

A lovely cottage and a very warm welcome.  The flowers and Welsh cakes were much appreciated as were the tea, coffee etc.  Lovely Spot and beautiful gardens, and not too far from anything.  Thank you!
