Perfect for couples, walkers and secret steam enthusiasts. Set in the picturesque snowdonia national park a mile away from historic village of Beddgelert,places to visit Gelert's grave, Sygun Copper Mine, Welsh Highland Railway and fantastic selection of friendly pubs. Cottage is more than what you want (clean, comfortable, warm, well furnished, excellent Wi-Fi and well equipped for self catering). Had a fantastic experience. Only half an hour drive from Porthmadog and Caernarfon (both you can get on the Welsh Highland railway from Beddgelert Station) and portmeirion (set of the prisoner), Llanberis home of the train to the summit of snowdon (or you can walk), Conwy and black rock sands beach. Views from your door are second to none.
Had a great long weekend at Sygun cottage (family of 4, 2 adults 2 children). The instructions we received were really easy to follow, and Claire was always on hand to sort out any minor issues or help us with some local advice. There was even a welcome pack waiting for us on our arrival which was a lovely surprise. The quality of the accommodation is excellent. The cottage is approx 3 miles outside Beddgelert so is very central for different activities. My husband and son went fishing whilst my daughter and I went to Portmerion for the day as well as doing the Welsh Highland Railway which was lovely. We had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely be back again.
What a great location. The cottage had everything you need plus more. Warm welcome with a bottle of wine bread and milk left to start us off. Logs and starter set for The log burner and WiFi but only if you want it. Everything near by but also nothing if you want it that way.
Highly recommended. Comfortable & well equipped. Also with homely decorations (rather than more typical blank walls). Considering what the price includes (bedding, towels, electricity, both bedrooms en-suite with good showers, welcome bread, milk, flowers and wine) it is also excellent value. Claire obviously pays attention to detail to make you welcome and feel at home. But needs a new can-opener :-)
Booking was smooth and the owner very friendly and helpful. The cottage is really well located for walking and handily has other cottages attached (we were part of a bigger group). Lovely outside space and we were really lucky with the weather so we were outside a lot. Good for dogs as there are gates you can shut to keep them safe away from the road. Plenty of parking. Great having 2 bathrooms for 2 bedrooms. House was nice and clean and cleaning staff friendly.
The interior was a bit basic, particularly for kitchen equipment, for example, it could do with some more pans with lids for cooking, a casserole dish with lid and potato peeler wasn't great. Overall the interior felt like it could do with a refresh.
