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,

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!

Perfect Place 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.

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.

A Lovely Cosy Cottage Ideal for a Relaxing Holiday for Two

Ideally situated to explore North Wales and Anglesey. A high standard, spotlessly clean, well equipped cottage in a lovely garden run by excellent hosts. A bottle of wine and Welsh Cakes as a welcome gift reflects the care and attention to detail given by William and Lesley who ensure you have everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

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!

Beautiful Gardens and Comfortable Bungalow

A lovely stay with Les and William, a beautiful relaxing time.  You drive up the lane and it opens up to beautiful gardens and the bungalow, made very welcome by Les and William.  The bungalow has everything you need, and so comfortable.  This was ideal for us.  We will be back and do all the things the area around offers.  Thank you so much.

Superbly Situated Cottage

We have enjoyed a thoroughly fantastic week, despite some mixed weather.  The cottage is superbly situated for visiting Anglesey as well as Snowdonia, so we could do what we love best - walking and paddle-boarding.  Also a trip into the past with a visit to Portmeirion (haven't been there since a child).  Above all, the cottage was a lovely surprise; so well equipped and larger than we expected.  Love all the little touches; flowers, Welsh cakes, toiletries and actual sharp knives!  Les and William were so welcoming and a font of local knowledge.  Thank you.
