The Hot Tub



    Y Bwythyn is a wonderful spacious relaxing cottage, very comfortable, wonderful views. The owners are lovely people. Perfect for getting away from it all and close enough to some fantastic scenery and walks in Snowdonia. Would definitely recommend.

    The cottage was spacious and well furnished. The owners were brilliant and really looked after us. We may well be back.

    It was a beautiful place. The cottage was a barn conversion that had been carefully and well restored, upgraded and turned into a lovely, comfortable cottage with fabulous views. The owners were friendly and helpful but not obtrusive.

    Great location. A wonderful setting on this working hill farm. Beautiful and spacious barn conversion with a place to relax inside and outside. Warmest of welcomes from hosts. Thoroughly recommended.

    A beautiful cottage; spacious, cosy and in a stunning location with super views. Had very nice and friendly owners, very helpful. Couldn't ask for more. Located perfectly for access anywhere in Snowdonia. Recommend!

    The barn conversion was of a high standard and the cottage felt like a special place to be.

    Comfortable accommodation, super location and charming hosts.

    Arrival at the cottage was a huge WOW! Thoughts from us all was "we would like to live here."

    This was a wonderful cottage in a beautiful location - peaceful with spectacular views. We were made very welcome by the owners. It was a great base from which to explore such a lovely part of Wales.

    Utterly beautiful place to stay, simply cannot praise it enough. We were privileged to watch twin lambs being born and watch the lambs being hand fed. Perfect base for a holiday. We will most definitely go back; it was, in a word, perfect.

    The location was lovely, the cottage was beautiful. Our hosts were very warm and welcoming, though never intrusive. The scenery and wildlife all around were a pleasure to see. We had a beautiful relaxing holiday. A great place to explore North Wales from.

    We Loved this property and had a fantastic holiday with plenty to see and do and were blessed with fantastic weather. The owner was very pleasant and friendly without being intrusive. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy the countryside or get in their car and explore the local area.

    The property was just how it looked on the website. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, like a home from home. The owners were a lovely couple and nothing was too much trouble. The eggs left for us fresh from the farm were a lovely touch! It was a good base for going out and about and seeing all that the area has to offer.

    The cottage was beautiful and spacious with lots of homely character and gorgeous views. We enjoyed a good few evenings bundled up on the sofas by the warmth of the electric fire!

    Great holiday cottage with fantastic location - quiet and peaceful. Perfect base for walking/exploring the Snowdonia area. We would definitely recommend to others and hope to be back soon.

    Very friendly owners, great views, a very pleasant holiday home! A good place to stay in between all activities. Also nice for the kids, who loved to play with the little dog and watch the sheep and lambs.

    This property was lovely, we had a wonderful time and we will definitely go back.

    The location and the scenery. The owners were friendly and really enjoyed the animals.

    The location was quiet and the views were wonderful.

    The property was ideal for our family stay and the location and views brilliant. The children loved the fact we were on a farm and the cottage was the perfect package for us. The overall location was good for exploring the area. We hope to return again for longer next time!

    Lovely clean and comfortable cottage. The location of the property was great and the views were amazing!

    After finding it particularly difficult to secure a suitable cottage at short notice you were able to find us an excellent property with good all round facilities on which the owners should be complemented. It was peaceful and tranquil in every way and the quietness was unbelievable in every way.

    Excellent accommodation, very comfortable with lovely views. Garden safe for young children.

    We were made extremely welcome and felt warm and comfortable in the house. We had wonderful weather and enjoyed the spectacular views from the garden and windows of this beautiful barn conversion.

    Lovely views, area had plenty to see and do, good location.

    Couldn't have asked for more wonderful a holiday. Owners were there but not obvious or interfering. Working farm: chickens, sheep etc. Great bird life: lapwings, red kites, curlews. Beautiful views and walks. Very peaceful.

    The location of the cottage was just about perfect and the owners first class!

    The children loved the hens and lambs on the farm. Lovely views of the countryside.

    Very beautiful property in a lovely scenic and peaceful area. I would definitely visit this property again, although hopefully much earlier in the summer, when it would possibly be warmer and sunnier!

    Wonderful property with fantastic views. The farm setting was just fabulous and the children loved the animals on their doorstep. The property owners were friendly and welcoming.

    Probably the best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in. The view was fantastic and a nice atmosphere on a working farm.

    Waking up in the morning and seeing the wonderful views of the countryside and the peace and quiet the property offers. Great weather. The wildlife was wonderful especially the red kites and the lapwings.The trip to the top of Mt Snowdon, a trip on the Welsh Highland Railway was great, I could go on and on. This was my first visit to Wales and I will come back soon.

    Very good property, very comfortable and cosy. Lovely views, lots to do in the area.

    The garden is great for young children as it is enclosed. Extremely helpful owner. Cottage is well situated for all local tourist spots and this made for superb walking etc.

    Great location for touring North Wales, the Welsh welcome and the high quality of the property.

    Just as good as it looked in the brochure, peaceful and beautifully appointed.

    Very comfortable and well-equipped accommodation in a beautiful location. Owners were very welcoming and helpful. Lots of places to visit nearby.

    Wonderful setting and views; very comfortable cottage; welcoming hosts.

    Fantastic property - great location - children loved the farm. Great location for walking and climbing - would recommend anyone to pay a visit!

    The location of the property felt nicely remote, being off the public road and yet has easy access to all the great activities north Wales has to offer. Great to see all the farm animals especially the friendly pigs. Fantastic view from house and garden.

    Lovely, peaceful location, really felt away from everything. Cottage was really tastefully decorated and well equipped, owners were friendly and helpful and have created a wonderful place in which to spend time. Local area full of interesting activities and great cream teas!

    Superb views approaching and at the farm. A working farm on a National Trust Estate. A great centre for walking.

    It was a on working farm and we could get to see some of the happenings; animals, tractors etc. The farm was fairly remote and that made it so peaceful. Lovely location with great views!!

    Owners were very friendly and helpful. The location and views were superb.

    The views from the property were stunning and it had everything you needed for an enjoyable stay. It's location meant we could easily explore the surrounding North Wales countryside and coast.The owners were very nice.

    Great views and tranquil surroundings. Warm and friendly owners who were available and helpful.

    Superb position & friendly hosts. A very relaxing holiday in the Welsh hills, yet only 15 minutes away from Betys. Everything we had hoped for.

    We had the most amazing holiday ever. The cottage was FAB!!! Very comfortable with a warm and friendly atmosphere, and we will definitely go back again. The views were amazing. We even saw snow on the mountains.

    Very peaceful and panoramic surroundings.

    The views from the windows of the barn conversion were exceptional - better than expected. Efficient service by Sykes staff as the holiday was a last-minute booking.

    Great location, brilliant hosts, perfect stay!!!

    I stayed at the cottage with my wife, a friend and her 4 year old daughter. The kid loved the place because there are 'sheepys', 'lambies' and 'gooses' 🙂 The hosts are really lovely and helpful. They had given us some fresh eggs from the farm - a great touch. The location is superb - literally 10 min drive from Betws-y-coed. It is in the middle of a working farm and it's really quiet and beautiful. No doubt we'll go there again!

    Fantastic base to explore the most beautiful area

    As a base for Steve's 50th birthday week this was an absolute gem of a place. It's a great drive there & with the most stunning views of the area. Marian & Trefor, the owners, are really lovely hosts (the wine and the eggs were great touches). The property was perfect for us, the cottage has everything you might need & being on a working farm was great both seeing & listening to the animals. Sadly we could only stay 3 nights but still managed to climb Snowdon, visit the north coast and try out Zip World. It was an action packed time with a really comfortable & pleasant adopted home to return to. We've booked again for early Sept when this time our daughter can come with us as we know she'll absolutely love it. A wonderful few days.

    Great base for exploration of North Wales

    The property is beautifully remodeled, nicely furnished, and spotlessly clean. The beds were very comfortable. The owners Trefor and Marian were friendly and helpful and started us out with a batch of fresh eggs. It's a little bit out of the way, but a beautiful & peaceful spot with easy day trips to sites like Caernarfon and Conwy castles, Portmeirion, Chester, Llandudno, Anglesey, etc. We enjoyed climbing Mt. Snowdon one day. Betws-y-Coed is nearby with many restaurants and other tourist facilities. There was no wi-fi internet available when we were there and cell coverage was spotty. Overall, highly recommended!

    Great family holiday

    The location was really very good and allowed us to see and experience a beautifull part of Wales. Cottage met all our needs and was very comfortable. Views were excellent.

    Peaceful and stunning scenery

    The property was in a beautiful location on a delightful farm deep in the Welsh countryside. The farm owner was very friendly and welcoming and the cottage was very beautiful and clean and well kitted out. The only real complaint I would have is that I felt it was very cold due to the time of year, and even with the fire on the the living room I often felt cold. But this is probably due to living in a very warm house anyway and this did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the property. I would definitely stay here again, during the warmer months of the year.

    My First Visit to Wales

    Peaceful location with beautiful views of the mountains and the valley,never far from all the local places of interrest.As this was my first visit to Wales there was so much to see and do, we felt we had picked the perfect property to stay.The weather was great.The cottage was lovely. very clean with everything needed for an enjoyable stay.The fresh eggs left for us by the owner were a nice touch.The lapwings, red kites and the rest of the wild life on the farm were a bonus

    The cottage was warm and welcoming and set on a peaceful working farm. Immacuately clean .Owners friendly and welcoming and very helpful . Was really touched as they had left us a bottle of champagne as it was our honeymoon. Was central location to visit surrounding attractions such as Snowdon, Llandudno and Betsy w Coed. We read the visitors book and there wasnt one negative remrk and plent would go back as we would ourselves.
