This linked cottage is located in the village of Gwaenysgor near to Prestatyn in North Wales and can sleep twelve people in six bedrooms.

Bron-y-Bryn Lodge is a linked cottage on the top of a hill in the North Wales village of Gwaenysgor near to Prestatyn. The cottage has six double bedrooms (all with en-suite facilities) which make it suitable for twelve people. The rest of the accommodation is made up of a wet room, a fitted kitchen, a dining room, a sitting room and a summer room with sea views.

Outside the cottage is off road parking for six cars and a front patio with outdoor furniture and a barbecue. A superb base for families and friends looking to holiday close to the coast and countryside.


Superb Family Christmas Stay
9 of our family (aged 39 to 83) stayed here for a week over Christmas and we had a fabulous time. The place was decorated with a lovely Christmas tree, lights and garlands which made it feel very festive from the moment we arrived. There were even yummy mince pies waiting for us! OK, so the place is a little tired and does need some TLC and some of the bedrooms were a little chilly (just make sure all radiators are on full and the rooms will be fine by bedtime); however, this did not detract from what is a fabulous place for a group gathering, be that family or friends. Make no mistake, this place is HUGE!!! 6 double (some twin) bedrooms all en suite was a key factor to us picking this place initially and it certainly suited our group. The social areas of this lodge are what made our stay....the large fabulous living room with real fire, bar!! (yes a bar, that came in very handy over the festive period) which was connected to a very spacious conservatory with pool table, games, extra seating and fabulous views. It is worth returning just for these two rooms. It enabled us all to engage in some sort of activity without being separated and great fun was had by all. We did need to take our own towels and we took extra supplies of things like loo rolls, kitchen rolls, dishwasher tabs etc but, having stayed in many self-catering properties, this is not uncommon. It's all about being prepared! The place was recently sold and was taken over by Carolyn just before we arrived and she could not have been more helpful. She was always on hand whenever we had any questions and even popped round with some new wine glasses for Christmas Day. I have no doubt that she will be working hard to put her stamp on this place and give it a new lease of life. I would be happy to return in its current state so I cannot wait to return to see what Carolyn achieves. Good luck Carolyn, we will be back!!

Disgraceful place
There were 10 of us in the party and we booked from Friday to Monday. Once we had all settled in, our colleague who had the booking in her name had occasion to ring the owner late Friday afternoon as it was getting dark and the fact there were several lights bulbs out, her son arrived with some bulbs but they were no good. Whilst he was there we pointed out that there were no toilet rolls and lack of heat in the bedrooms and associated corridors. We were advised that "It was a big house to heat and sometimes people moaned that it was too hot". He said he had adjusted the heating times but it made little difference to the temperatures in the bedrooms, all of which remained cold the whole time of our stay. He went back to get some more light bulbs, and some toilet rolls blamng his poor wife for not jeans no them. He then returned with some more light bulbs and 6!! toilet rolls, 1 toilet roll for each room for 3 nights is totally inadequate. We were told to bring our own towels, which we have never been asked to before but we didn't think perhaps to bring toilet rolls as well. Regardless of the fact the house is big, the heating should have been on prior to our arrival and the house and bedrooms heated to such a degree that it was comfortable. As it was we all suffered terrible night's sleep the whole weekend, it was a disgrace. Even if you added an extra cost to the rental it would have been preferable than the icy conditions we encountered. There were heaters in the bedrooms that said "not connected" so what that was all about we don't know, there were tiny radiators that did nothing for the rooms. The only warm room was the lounge. We pointed out to the son's owner that the extractor hood over the cooker didn't work, the reply was, it was working this morning.!! The cooker only had 5 rings, not 6 as stated on your web site. The kitchen cupboards had a terrible damp musty smell and looked as if they needed a deep clean. We tried to sort the rubbish out but all the wheelie bins stated that they were "non recycle" we couldn't find anywhere for the papers or the cans. The whole system needed to be re-labelled properly. All the beds were extremely uncomfortable and hard and all the bedding looked as if it could have done with a good wash and bleach. The duvet's were very thin and there were no blankets or extra pillows, which every rental place we have ever stayed in supply. The web site said there was a bedroom ensuite with a bath, this was true, there was a bath but it was impossible to use as there were no taps, what did the owner expect us to do, bring buckets (there were none) of hot water in relay?. We remarked to the owner's son about the windows in some of the bedrooms being filthy on the outside, he said it was the cows licking the windows, those windows, in fact all the windows looked as if they hadn't been cleaned for months. They were appalling. Which leads me to the fact that the whole house needed a thorough clean. The look and feel of the house was that no one had stayed or cleaned for several weeks. We as a group have hired houses for several years at this time of year and this was the only house where we have experienced such cold dank bedrooms and lack of cleanliness. The houses we have hired always had a good supply of cleaning materials, this house had 1 cheap sponge and a J cloth. This is not good enough. We made the best of our weekend but as you can imagine we will not be booking again.
