Boasting a wealth of oak beams, trusses and stone walls Isallt is a lovely holiday cottage in a stunning location between the mountains and the beach in North Wales.


Lovely relaxing stay!
We arrived at Issalt after a long drive and as soon as we entered the property it was cosy and welcoming! Sara came to check on us on our second day which we really appreciated, Pip our dog certainly liked her! She made me, my sister and Pip feel so welcome and made it clear if we needed anything to just ask. We loved staying on the farm, as animal lovers we made the most of the experience and said hello to some brand new lambs! The farm is situated in such a beautiful spot a perfect base for lots of exploring nearby. After lots of walking what more could you want than to sit in a hot tub and admire the view, including a beautiful sunset. The beds were so comfy and the house had everything you could possibly need. We hope to come back! Thanks again for a lovely stay, it was just what we needed!

Absolutely filthy cottage and terrible smell
I informed the owners of my time of arrival, got there at 3pm but the house was very cold. Was 2 degrees outside. The heating started 30 minutes later. The kitchen cabinets were greasy brown and the rug, sofa and carpets were very dirty. I hired the cottage via sykes. The cottage is literally next door to a cows shed and smells so nasty. They also have a chemical room attached with smells of cows feeding products. You couldn?t really enjoy the hot tub or open windows as flies were coming in the cottage and really strong poo smell . No coffee, no milk no hospitality from the owners at all. They were very annoyed I complained about the cleanliness and they didn?t clean anything. Filthy place.

Feel sadly disappointed, lacking in attention to detail. We were due to arrive late on Friday and so I contacted the owner who said the key would be left in the door so we could just walk in and feel at home. Our friends arrived earlier than us and were unable to get into the property, the weather was not good and we had made long journeys on motor bikes so our friends had to shelter in the cold shower block reserved for the caravan site, sadly I received no telephone call to let me know the key had been left behind the flower pot?? Before we arrived the owner arrived and let our friends in and turned up the heating as well as then leaving 2 dishwasher tablets and topped up the instant coffee. There were no dishcloths provided and as the weather was particularly bad the lack of heating in the morning was not appriciated as the heating is on a timer and there is no ability to override. We read throug the muddled imformation pack after a search, which said if we want heating on there would be an extra charge. The house was clean but there were a few things that were broke or not up to our exacting standards and as I said, all was adequate, but again the attention to detail was lacking making us feel that this was a money maker business, and maybe lacking in a passion or care for this very qaint little cottage. The pictures are also a little deceiving as they make the place look bigger than it actually is and our friends were hoping to push the two singles together as in the photos, however the rooms and bed had been changed sadly. The farm was also a bit of a mess, (I have lived on a farm) the rubbish had also not been collected and after the winds, was then strewn around, but at least that was tidied once we returned form our day out on Saturday. The hot tub was also clean and hot thankfully warming us after being chilled to the bones.

Fabulous stay
We had a fabulous week here. The cottage was spotless and very comfortable, it had everything we needed. The weather was amazing so we were able to explore the area, some fabulous beaches, coastal walks, and a local waterfall. We even climbed Snowdon!! It half killed me but a lovely refreshing shower and a cold beer on the patio once back at the farm finished the day nicely. Thanks for a wonderful week away.

Fantastic place to stay
I stayed her with my husband, daughter and dog and it made a perfect base for our busy holiday. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished and has everything you need. We cooked most nights and found the kitchen well equipped for all our needs. The views from the cottage and adjacent campsite are fantastic. The location is ideal allowing us to visit all the places we had planned. Can highly recommend mountain biking at Coed-y-Brenin, Zip World Caverns at Blanaeu Ffestiniog, the beach (and ice creams) at Criccieth and a hike up Snowdon. Had a fab week and would certainly visit again.
