  • "We had an excellent time at the property."

    Everything was ready for us to move straight into, including a welcome pack in the kitchen. We wanted to be close to Chester so that we could visit family, but also close enough to explore other areas such as Liverpool, Conwy Castle and Beeston Castle. We really enjoyed our stay, Jill and Terry were very welcoming and happy to deal with any issues, but we had none. Hope to come and stay again

  • "The old stable (Yr Hen Stabl) was one of the best equipped holiday cottages I’ve styed at."

    It was clean and comfortable and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Probably not one of the more obvious places for a holiday but I found the location very interesting and convenient for many places of interest. I liked having regular bus and train services within a short walk and there is plenty of room to park directly in front of the cottage. Very much recommended.

  • "Superb cottage in a lovely area."

    Comfortable, extremely clean, fully equipped with everything you might want, friendly and helpful owners - what more could you want to have a great holiday (although better weather for late June would have been welcome!) Only slight snag is that if you are old, tall and arthritic (like me) you might find it difficult to get up from it - but normal people should have no problems. It would not stop me booking again unless I get even more decrepit!

    The cottage was a home from home and the owners had thought of everything to make our stay extremely comfortable. It was well equipped, spotlessly clean and the welcome pack which greeted us was certainly enjoyed! An information folder contained details of local markets, places of interest to visit and local restaurants which were recommended by previous visitors. Access to the coast, Llangollen and the local areas was well sign-posted and the Spring sunshine added to wonderful days spent visiting so many interesting places. Our thanks to the owners who were always available in case of any queries.

  • "Probably best described as bijou, small but elegant!"

    Everything was well planned and comfort was second to none. Beautiful property and easy access to surrounding area, choice of dog walks literally on the doorstep and especially the Wirral peninsula of which we'd never visited before, exceptional dog friendly beaches definitely NOT aimed at families...breathtaking! Property wise, the positives far outweigh the negatives, the pluses are too numerous to mention, the only gripes was that the so called "smart" radiators were only sufficient to keep the chill off, needed to light the log burner some mornings but every evening...which wasn't a great shame as it was mostly November. The "wet room" was the biggest disappointment as was fitted with only a basic electric shower, may be fine during the summer months but with no heating other than a heated towel rail, taking a shower was perishing. Apart from lack of storage space it was an absolute delight! Really disappointed we had to leave a day early due to work commitments. Thank you to the lovely, helpful and unobtrusive owners...and Sykes yet again!!!

    There was no road noise which was great just the occasional rooster in the morning! The owners Gill and Terry were both lovely and very helpful, we knew that if we needed anything they were right next door. The only thing I would say is that me and my partner are tall and the towels just didn't fit! It was very much made for shorter people but it was still a very good cottage.
