Spotless, High Quality Stay!

I may have stayed in this holiday cottage over 2 years ago, but I can still remember the high quality stunning cottage perfectly. I had two ‘long term’ stays at Tyddyn Syndey Bach whilst completing my PGCE course at Bangor University. The location was perfect as it was a 5 minute drive to the University and the cottage is in a stunning garden round the back of the owners house. The owners were very friendly and, as they lived on-site, were always willing to help if any issues arose. They have fantastic knowledge of the area and were always willing to recommend interesting places to visit. I would wholeheartedly recommend this holiday cottage to anybody! May 2020

Disappointing Stay

Nice, clean, well equipped small studio cottage. Owner is completely over the top about the place, we simply could not relax the whole three nights we were there. We were told not to touch the heating control computer as it was a £1000 worth of equipment, so of course we didn’t. The first two nights the heating did not come on so we had to contact owner, also no wifi on second night. We were frightened to touch anything. Owner is far too precious about the cottage, makes you feel like she doesn’t really want anybody to stay in it. Never been so glad to leave a place. It was a total waste of money for us. Would not recommend if you are going away for a chill out.

Tyddyn Sydney Bach’s Reply :- I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your three-day break. We have been letting out the cottage for 15 years and in all that time there have only been a tiny number of problems. The vast majority of guests have thoroughly enjoyed their stay and many return.I am disappointed that you felt the heating was not on despite the Far-infrared heating panels thermostat being set at 24 C, the towel radiator and underfloor being at 21C, with a fan heater and throws being available to you. Especially as you told me that the cottage was lovely and warm on your arrival and when you returned from your walks. I live on the grounds so I was happy to respond to you immediately on the several occasions you called on me from the first evening, as I had invited you to when I showed you around the cottage.I am sorry that the internet went down one evening. Unfortunately, this was due to an outage which affected the whole area and was totally beyond our control.I do everything in my power to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable. So when you asked if you could check in four hours before the agreed time, I agreed willingly. When you left the dishes, pans and kitchen dirty I did not ask for cleaning costs (as other holiday cottage landlords would do routinely.) We enjoy greeting our new guests who frequently leave as friends and welcoming returning guests as our reviews will testify.

Perfect Little Jewel Box

Booked for my husband and I – we were visiting our son who is studying in Bangor for a semester. The cottage was perfect – pristinely clean, great location and many extras as others have mentioned such as Welsh Cakes and fresh flowers present on arrival. Les and William were wonderful, made us feel like friends. For anyone concerned the road noise is very minimal – I had wondered about it prior to arrival but we were not bothered at all.

Super Little Cottage

This is a small but really well equipped cottage and Les and William were excellent hosts with so much knowledge about the local area and they made every effort to make me feel welcome. It really is a place to return to.

Ideal Place to Stay

I booked this cottage because the location was ideal for the places we wanted to visit without having to travel too far. The cottage was perfect. It was so comfortable and very well equipped. Les the owner had obviously put a great deal of thought into equipping the cottage and it really felt like a home from home. We were greeted by Les on our arrival and she made us feel so welcome and she then let us into the cottage where she had provided welsh cakes and butter along with muesli for our breakfast and a beautiful vase of roses. We so enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

Spacious Spotlessly Clean Cottage

Our first visit to Tyddyn Sydney Bach, a spacious spotlessly clean cottage, well equipped, dishwasher, washing machine etc. Nice quality bed linen and towels, not too fussy. We enjoyed a warm welcome from owners Les and William who gave us lots of info on the best places to visit in this lovely area of North Wales and Anglesey. Particularly enjoyed the large secluded garden. We are returning home feeling rested and relaxed. The flowering magnolia is magical. Yes, we would recommend to friends and yes, we would come back. Thank you Les and William. Helen and Malcolm, March 2022 – A very warm and sunny week up to 20C?

Extremely Comfortable Cottage

This was our fourth or fifth time here (and we’ll be back again in June) and, as usual, everything worked like clockwork, and again, as always we have had a wonderful times here. This was, however, our first time with the new bedroom extension, which makes an already extremely comfortable cottage even more so, the bedroom allows space in the lounge for two comfortable sofas and the cottage gains space and light with this improvement. A good decision! Nothing more to add, except that after travelling to the UK for many summers we have had problems of all kinds, in all places, and at all price ranges. We come back here as often as we can because we know that it will all be trouble-free and comfortable. Thanks Les and William. Mike and Elisabet, March 2022

Beautiful Cottage in Fantastic Location

A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location with all the mod cons you could hope for. A real home from home. Sadly our stay has been cut short due to a mini drama at home. Brenda and Robin, February 2022

Restful Week in Lovely, Well-appointed Cottage

Having both been wiped out by Covid last month, this was just what we needed to regroup. We’ve had a restful week in this lovely, well-appointed cottage. Portmeirion enchanted, as ever, the Llanberis Pass astounded, and many locations on Anglesey offered rainy strolls. Can recommend Ann’s Pantry at Moelfre and Bonia deli in Caernarfon. Thanks for the Valentine’s treats too, Les Jane and Graham February, 2022

One of the Best Staycations We Have Had!

One of the best staycations we have had. The cottage was cosy and had everything we needed. Les has been a fantastic host and always willing to go out of her way to help us. We will definitely be back in the summer! Thanks Les. Fakhra and Noraiz, December 2021
