Really helpful and friendly hosts and a very nice cottage. This is a real working farm and enjoyable because of it. The surrounding area is amazing; we will be back soon.

Lovely place to stay with easy access to so many fantastic activities. We were only here for a week, but we crammed a lot in. The cottage had everything we needed and the owners were very friendly. We would definitely stay here again if we go back to this area.

This was such a wonderful spot for a holiday, with lots of beautiful walks, a lovely little harbour and beach a very short distance away. The excellent standard of the cottage made it a delight to come home to. There was plenty to see and do, people were warm and friendly and the scenery was staggering - made you want to keep stopping for a photograph. We would highly recommend Isallt and we shall certainly go back again.

A beautiful cottage with everything you could possibly need. A home away from home except with stunning scenery and fantastic hosts. The owners did so much to make us all feel welcome on their farm. My son enjoyed playing farmers helper feeding the cows and sheep and bottle feeding the lambs. Even the weather was kind to us and the sun shone most of the time. I would love to go back to the cottage again and would certainly recommend it to family and friends.

A comfortable, cosy cottage, welcoming family and a great base to explore Snowdonia.

The cottage was gorgeous, in great location for visiting the area and lovely to be on a farm feeding lambs! Had beautiful views!

The holiday accommodation was excellent and one of the best cottages we have stayed in. It was very well presented and a generously equipped kitchen added to the experience. All in all a brilliant place to stay.

The holiday was excellent, we particularly liked the closed in area where the dog could roam around without her wandering off. It was lovely and quiet and the cottage was very well equipped, lovely and warm.

Lovely, quiet location and beautiful scenery. Plenty of local historical interest.

The cottage was beautiful and very well equipped. The owners are very nice and friendly and the area is lovely. I would recommend the cottage to everyone as it is such a lovely place.

Really enjoyed our stay. Beds were the most comfortable we have ever had. Hosts pleasant and welcoming. Being on a working farm was a plus for us.

A very friendly host. Very cosy and comfortable property and everything is provided. A good bed and furniture, after a good day walking you can relax on the sofa or garden furniture and at night there is a good bed to sleep in. Bathroom is well equipped with a good shower over the bath. Very friendly people overall and good views to see.

The surrounding area was marvellous, and quite central to many activities and attractions, including the sandy beaches. In 20 + years of cottage rentals, this is by far the best we have visited.

The accommodation was to a high standard and very comfortable. Really appreciated the fact there was a dishwasher and washing machine, it was a real home from home.

Fantastic holiday cottage, could not fault at all, extremely happy and will be returning.

A lovely property, very cosy. Just what we wanted for a relaxing week.

The property was fantastic, the owner had thought of everything and it was a real home from home. Ideal for taking babies/toddlers as there were 2 stair gates, a cot & highchair. The garden is also fully enclosed but next to a shed so we often had a calf and lamb popping their heads over the fence. Do not miss the ice cream shop by the castle - Hufenfa'r Castell.

The cottage was very homely and well equipped.

Comfortable, warm and well equipped cottage on a farm. Lovely to see the animals nearby and a great location for visiting the area. Spectacular scenery and beautiful sandy beaches which were quiet and unspoiled. We will definitely return next year!

The accommodation was in a great location, with beaches and other great attractions in great proximity. It was thoroughly clean, and very well equipped.

Wonderful location, very friendly and approachable owners and a fantastic cottage. All in all, an excellent holiday!

Ideal for our needs. The accommodation was comfortable and in a nice location. The weather was good which is always a good factor. I would return to the property and recommend it to others.

Very friendly and helpful owners. The cottage has been renovated well and was very comfortable. Lots of things to do locally, including a beach within walking distance.

I couldn't believe for a cottage that accepted dogs how comfortable it was. In fact, it was one of the nicest cottages we've stayed in!

Peaceful location within good distance of all Snowdon attractions.

A beautiful cottage in wonderful surroundings, very friendly and helpful owners.

The cottage was very cosy and had everything in it that you could need. The location was perfect and to top it off we had great weather too!

The cottage was fabulous, we loved it all. We wish we could have stayed longer.

The cottage was very well presented. The owners were welcoming and friendly.

Peaceful. Relaxed. Friendly owners. Good base for exploring the area. Even nicer than described on website. Great value.

We would rate this barn 10 out of 10. It's finished to a very high standard and I was very surprised to the extra touches around the property. We had two small children who were also looked after with cots and high chair. We would recommend it to anyone! You will love it!

We had a super time at the cottage in a fantastic location and would certainly recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful cottage and location and the weather was great too!

Lovely setting, great barn conversion. Owned by a lovely family

Excellent property and farm. Great place to go and cannot recommend enough.

Everything was so well thought out, fresh and clean. The family and dogs were very welcoming. It was in a beautiful area, close to lots of lovely things to see and do.

A lovely well decorated and furnished cottage with all the amenities we needed and in a lovely location on the farm.

Everything was spot on, cottage was lovely!

I loved the whole experience. The property was excellent, the owner was very helpful and friendly, always willing to assist.

The cottage was beautifully renovated, all the decor and furniture was top quality, even the towels! The farm it was situated on was lovely, the owners were very friendly and extremely welcoming. The views from the site were outstanding, the atmosphere of the place was relaxed and very child friendly. The farm is situated in a good position to access the attractions that Wales has to offer. We really couldn't fault the cottage or the holiday that we had. We really enjoyed our honeymoon even with two small boys to occupy. After the stress of the wedding it was such a relief to find such a peaceful place to relax. Thank you so much, both owners and Sykes Cottages for such a smooth and easy way to holiday.

Cosy Cottage

We have just returned from a very relaxing week at Isallt cottage. We were really pleased with the accommodation and it had everything we needed for a family of four. There were some dishwashing tablets, tea towels, washing up liquid left in the kitchen and liquid hand soap in both bathrooms. You will need to provide everything else and the bigger supermarkets, such as Tesco, Lidli and Aldi are a 20 minute drive away in Porthmadog. The owners are super friendly and just leave you to get on with your break. The hot tub was an added bonus and much needed after a walk up Snowdon! There is a lovely walk to the beach from the cottage, which took us 15 minutes, across the fields and railway line. The beaches are lovely, soft sand and we saw some amazing sunsets. We recommend the fish and chip's from the Dolphin fish bar in Barmouth. Tony's pizza was okay but nothing special....although the chips were good. We had a meal at the Victoria Inn, which 2 out of 4 of us enjoyed, the 2 being the ones who ordered the burger! We will be booking again!


Stayed in isallt cottage for 4 nights. I was very impressed. Very cosy and very comfortable. Especially loved the the reclining chairs. Everything we needed was available. Apart from food. Be prepared as you will need to travel a little for shopping. If wanting a takeaway Tony’s is yummy. My son loved the chickens, they visited us everyday. The hot tub is amazing, totally added bonus at the end of a day running up and down the sand dunes with my son. North Wales is truly a beautiful place and isallt is about a mile from the beach. You can walk to the beach in about 20 minutes. In fact there are beautiful beaches everywhere but you will need a car. Unfortunately a lot of activities were closed due to covid but we didn’t mind. I will be returning again. Just the holiday we needed.

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.

Spent all night counting cow bangs!

Whilst the owners were very polite and friendly, the house (Isallt) was attached to the cowshed, and the cows were intermittently but very frequently banging against the joining wall all night so we didn't get much sleep. We took two small dogs and every time they left a 'package' we cleared it up - but the owners dogs kept coming into the garden and leaving numerous packages. We did bring this up with the owners because we felt it hypocritical that they have strict rules around dogs and their fouling, and yet they let their dogs come and 'poo' in the garden which you have paid to enjoy. The double bed in the main room allows for no room at each side which creates a high level of difficulty in getting in/out of the bed - suggest replacing bed with a divan and no bedstead at the bottom which would make things easier. Having said all the above, the house was finished to a very high standard, and the owners have put a lot of love and effort into it which certainly shows. Good standard of accommodation and furnishings, and the kitchen was well equipped. We did accidentally leave behind my husbands pen (which was part of a set presented to him on his retirement - so whilst expensive it also has massive sentimental value). We spoke to the owner who had found the pen, and explained the value of it to us, and even though she agreed to send it to us - we have not received it to date. I think had she sent the pen we would have possibly overlooked some of the issues we found whilst we there.

Wonderful holiday in a home from home

We have just returned from Isallt today. The property was fabulous. It is more spacious than the photos convey with everything you could need to make you feel that you are at home. It was furnished and decorated very tastefully. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped for self catering, ie. pans, knifes, baking trays, crockery etc so there is no need for eating out if you do not want to. It is ideal for children as there are 2 stairgates, a highchair and a travel cot. (We actually brought our own Hauck travel cot which was the same as the one provided. We find it necessary to use our regular cot mattress with it as the travel cot mattress provided is quite thin and hard.) There is an enclosed garden so it is safe for the children to play, with the added bonus of a calf and lamb who live in a shed next to the garden. My son was able to feed the calf one day which he loved. My biggest recommendation for this region is the ice cream shop in Harlech - it is just up the hill from the castle. It is truly amazing ice cream, better than any I've ever had anywhere in the world. We went 3 days in a row, was too embarrassed to go for a 4th time!!

Fantastic week in Harlech

We stayed in this wonderful cottage for a week. We had a lovely welcome from the owners on our first day. They also had dogs on the working farm, so my children loved seeing their dogs on a daily basis and looking out onto the fields at the sheep and horses. The cottage had absolutely everything in it you would need, was very clean and decorated beautifully with all the features of the barn giving it a little bit of charm too. We had wonderful weather whilst we were there, which was a bonus. We would walk (about 15mins) or drive (2 mins) down to the beach every day to walk the dog, which he loved. One side of the beach was specifically allocated for dog owners, which was great. We had some lovely days out as well, a fantastic base to stay whilst exploring snowdonia.

Great holiday cottage

This was a lovely cottage, in a beautiful location. We were made to feel welcome and the cottage was like home from home with everything in it that you could possibly want. It also had a cosy feel to it. We visited the beach which is dog friendly and only about a 15 minute walk, or two minute drive from the cottage most days. Lots to see and do in the area, we did not get to do everything we wanted to do in the week we were there. Would definately return again and also recommend to family and friends.

great location

what a great place to stay. The conversion is worth 9/10, everything you need. Great place to visit north wales, would recommend it to anyone

Great relaxing place

Very friendly place, on a great location. This is a real working farm, which is a great attraction. Nicely finished and well equiped. Would come back and recommend.
