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.

Spotlessly Clean Well Equipped Cottage

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.

5 Star Self Catering Cottage

Just had a one week holiday in this top quality cottage. It was equipped with all the the things you could possibly require. We were greeted by its owner Les who showed us around, she is obviously very proud of the top standards of accommodation offered to her guests. To make her guests even more welcome, a complementary welcome pack was provided along with flowers in the kitchen and bedroom. This cottage provided the best self catering accommodation we have ever experienced.

A Truly Enjoyable Stay

We took a lot of time to choose our place where to stay given that our interest was to have a place close to the sites we wanted to visit but with time to enjoy the grounds if we wanted to. The cottage served this purpose. We had identified castles, manor houses, parks, the mountains etc the sea all within close proximity.

We spent days out and returned to a cosy cottage that helped us to unwind and relax. The owners are the ideal couple. Always there to assist us in our needs and provide us with places to visit or dine that we had not explored. The cottage itself has first class amenities and shows the care shown by the hosts to ensure that one's stay is a truly relaxing and memorable one. If you want to visit castles, go to Snowdonia, go on boat trips, do some tracking and swim then Tyddyn Sydney Bach is the ideal location for you. We will definitely go back.

Return Visit

We returned again to Tyddyn Sydney Bach which we now call our happy place. Les and William are superb hosts and their cottage is beautifully appointed with everything you could need from a holiday cottage. The gardens are extensive and beautiful and great to sit out in. The cottage and garden is a perfect chill out zone.

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!
