    • “Weekend Getaway”

    • “This booking was made at quite short notice towards the end of July when we realised we had a free weekend. We had checked through all of our usual sites when we stumbled upon Sykes for the first time. Everything about the searching and booking process with Sykes was straightforward and friendly. Although, we placed the actual booking online we did double check via phone and we found the staff helpful, professional and well informed. Once the booking was confirmed, the ownwer was soon in contact to introduce herself and inform us that we could arrive early if we wanted to. Upon arrival in Holt, we were greeted by both owners who were friendly and attentive. They took the time to show us around every detail of the accomodation and also to make recommendations for eating out. We acted on both recommendations (the Grosvenor arms and the Indian restaurant in the village) and were not disappointed. The apartment is very well appointed with all the essentials and a few extras as well. They even put a bottle of wine in the fridge for us. Most welcome. Holt itself is a pleasant village with everything you need (pubs, shops, tea rooms etc) and its set in beautiful countryside. Fairly close by you have Wrexham, Llangollen and Chester to visit. It was our first visit to Chester but certainly not our last. It is a delightful city centre with all sorts of shops and restaurants sympathetically woven into the historic architecture. All of the staff in the shops are obviously very proud of their city and without exception asked what we thought of it and were we enjoying our time there. So, from start to finish, this weekend break was a real pleasure and Sykes are a refreshing change from other online booking services.”

About the location


Wrexham 5 miles; Chester 10 miles.

The Welsh/English border village of Holt was founded in 1282 and sits on the banks of the River Dee, 10 miles from Chester, where the Holt Bridge formed an important border crossing with Farndon for centuries. The village has seen several conflicts during its existence and damage from musket shots can still be seen in the door of the impressive St Chad’s Church. Holt is a picturesque village with a small village green, local pubs and shops and the ruins of Holt Castle, which date back to around 1284. Across the river lies the village of Farndon, over the border in England, where visitors will find splendid little shops, as well as welcoming pubs, ideal for relaxing in with friends and family. Why not visit the Roman City of Chester with its famous Rows, excellent shopping, celebrated zoo and popular racecourse? For those who like walking and outdoor activities, Snowdonia National Park is only a couple of hours drive away and is ideal for days out. Holt is a perfect base from which to enjoy this beautiful and exciting region.
