Ruined holiday
Booked this property for an engagement holiday for myself and partner. We haven't been on holiday in well over a year due to work commitments. We searched for an isolated, dog friendly property. This came up. On arrival,it was obvious that the area was rural,but the property wasn't isolated. There was a property next door (but detached). It is in fact the owners who live next door. The property itself is stunning, smart finish and lovely views. However, the property was clearly not cleaned prior to our arrival. We found pubic hairs scattered around the toilet, bath and basin. There was also faeces in the toilet pan, but no cleaning products in the property. On closer inspection, the mattress protector was covered in pubic hair. Our feet were left black after walking bare foot. The property had clearly not been cleaned for sometime as there was deep seeded dirt everywhere. The property folder mentions leaving the property as you find it. This can only let me assume that the owners are relying on guests to clean after themselves. We left on the second morning. I wanted to leave on the first day after our outing to llanberris, but ice and bad weather meant we had to stay the second night. I have complained to sykes and since received a full refund. I'm sure the property cleaner would have been informed, and this problem rectified for future guests. I dont like calling people out, but unfortunately this completely ruined our holiday, and i wouldn't anyone else to suffer the same fate.

Perfect cottage in the beautiful landscape of snowdonia
We stayed in this cottage for 3 nights at the end of October for the snowdonia marathon. Two adults one teenager and our two dogs, this cottage was just perfect for our needs. There was a barra brith cake, jug of milk in the fridge with tea & coffee waiting for us on our arrival which was a lovely touch. We are looking to visit the area again sometime next year, & this cottage is top of our list for a place to stay. The cottage is very clean with plenty of room and only a few miles less than 10 minutes from Llanberis. Thank you to the owners for a lovely stay in your cottage.

Y Bwthyn is situated in a great location for exploring Snowdonia and all of the activities available. The children particularly liked the horses in the surrounding land. The views are stunning and we would book again.

Y Bwythyn is a beautiful cottage that was situated in the middle of nowhere, on the side of a mountain with wonderful views, yet still perfectly located for easy access to so many lovely places. The enclosed garden/yard was ideal and secure enough to let the dogs out without supervision. The cottage was very clean and well equipped and although we didn't require the use of the log burner, it was a very attractive feature.
Mr Foster

Wonderful cottage in a superb quiet location which was within striking distance of many interesting places. The property was very clean and nicely prepared for people to stay there, there were very comfortable beds and the owners are friendly and welcoming!
