“Great little cottage in a scenic valley”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had stayed in a Sykes Cottages propoerty previously, in Scotland, and were disappointed, but had no complaints about Minffordd. The setting, in a picturesque valley with Craig yr Aderyn on one side and Cadair Idris on the other, was perfect, The cottage is a well-renovated old end-of-terrace with lots of character, and good facilities. There is on-site parking for a single small car, and pets are allowed, and can wander around the garden (finding a sheep in the garden was a surprise one morning, though - hopefully the hole in the back fence is now fixed!)

The local caretakers of the property were quick to respond when we reported a couple of problems, and the next door neighbours were very friendly too.As an added bonus, look out for the jam and cake stall a hundred metres down the road.

The lack of a mobile phone signal or any data network at all was the only real disadvantage. Providing a little more information for new visitors is our only other improvement suggestion: it would be good if Sykes' compiled a standard list of things that renters like to know, and then each cottage could have its own version of this completed, courtesy of the caretakers, and left as a welcome for new renters.

So, in summary, we would highly recommend this cottage.
