Lovely Cottage
Home from an amazing weekend at the bigger of the two cottages. I booked the cottage for my 30th birthday weekend. 12 of us stayed and there have been no complaints. The cottage is so big that we were never on top of each other. Each bedroom has its on ensuite which is perfect for 12 girls! Hot tub and sauna are lovely additions. It is a bit off track and quite a way from ruthin but if you drive its only 15 minutes. Only thing I would say is the reception isnt great and the wifi is very hit and miss. There also isnt anything for music like a speaker but easy enough to take yourself! Will definitely be returning!

Retirement weekend
Clean , spacious and ideal for a short break . A little out of the way but it was nice to have no traffic noise .

Fantastic place
We arrived on Friday lunchtime after receiving a message from Eryl the manager of the cottage to say we could get in the cottage before 3pm if we wanted to. We called at the village shop to buy some fresh eggs only to be greeted by Erly who actually volunteers in the shop. Once we arrived at the cottage we were absolutely delighted it really is right In the middle of a working farm. The cottage is extremely comfortable. We had the biggest of the two cottages, fully equipped and the two dishwashers we an absolute godsend with there being 10 of us. All the bedrooms have really good en-suite facilities, and the bedrooms are really big with the beds in any configuration you need, Eryl asked me how we would like the beds to be set up before we arrived. The beds were really clean and very comfortable. WiFi a bit hit and miss and we did struggle to get a telephone signal, but again this is a working farm in the middle of the countryside so only what you should expect. TVs in all bedrooms as well as the lounge so even if the weather was bad everybody could be catered for even a PlayStation. The games room is very rustic and Eryl told me before we arrived that the table tennis table had been broken by the previous occupants, the pool table was fine and we even managed to repair the table tennis one so that we could play on it although nobody was allowed to lean on it. I?ve read a few comments on here about flys, well yes there were some flys but again it's a working farm and your bound to get these. All in all a brilliant 5 nights and days and we would defiantly go to this cottage again, The hot tub and the sauna were brilliant, the only thing I would say is the back area of the house could do with more outside lights or lights that don't go off while your in the hot tub as when we went in at night the senor lights went off after five minutes and it really was pitch black.

Great Accommodation, Perfect Location
There are two adjoining properties, that can be joined together to make a 7 or 8 Bedroom property (all at least a double room with en-suites) We stayed in the smaller two Bedroom property. Very warm and cosy, fitted out with a large fully functioning kitchen. Has extras like a playstation3 which was useful for the kids, but there is so much to do outside, it was barely used. Great options to go walking in the fields, through the Clocaenog Forest or down to the pub. The owner Eryl was very welcoming and helped with any questions we had. The other people workign on the farm (its a real working Beef Cattle Farm), were always really helpful. We will come back one day. Thanks.

Large family holiday with dogs
Lovely 5 bed plus the option of a sofa bed attached to one of the main bedrooms All on suite with option for all but one to be twin linked king sized beds The seating in the lounge for all of us was just enough and the wood burin ting stove in this room got very warm. Seats around the dining table was great and allowed for us to eat together with enough crockery and cutlery ( something not every place has) The kitchen was functional and had enough room although we had a small problem with fridge on last day - reported as we left. Hot tub was a lovely addition and main reason we booked along with games room and sauna Addition of a shared washing machine and dryer was a boon as we were travelling on to another holiday let and this enabled us to clean the toddlers clothes prior to travelling Comment - would loved the small area of grass just after the fence to have been the other side as this would have allowed our toddler to have been outside on the grass on her bike with us watching from the kitchen etc as it was open to the one teach road it meant we had to be outside at all times
