  • "Excellent lodge, amazing views."

    Lodge is finished to a high standard and very well fitted out with everything a family would need. Spent a lot of time in the lodge mainly due to the weather being mixed but with location no real need to leave. All very sad to return home after 2 weeks but will be booking again very soon. Thank you!

  • "This is a very attractive property in a superb position on the site."

    It's at the top of a steep hill, but this means that it is secluded and quiet (nothing behind it but a bank with wild flowers, then trees, and the lodge in front is completely hidden by the slope) and the wide view over the sea, the estuary and Borth is quite special. The lodge is extremely well-appointed, furnished in a modern style, sparkling clean and very comfortable. My friend and I chose it partly because I'm disabled, we're both old and it had a ramp rather than steps, but be warned, it's a very long ramp and getting the luggage in was still hard work - not a problem for normally fit people, obviously. One tiny niggle, born out of the high quality of the appliances. Having less sophisticated ones at home, we were a bit bemused by the controls on the cooker/microwave and the dishwasher and there were no instructions; a little list of icons and their meanings would have been very useful! The friendly and concerned owner tried really hard to communicate with us before and during our stay. Unfortunately for both parties, it all landed in my Spam folder, so believe the Sykes site and take their advice to check your spam! Because we didn’t receive the instructions we'd been sent to guide us through the site, we asked for directions at Reception and were told, oh that's the best spot on the site. It was, and we recommend it thoroughly.

    Thank you for your feedback and pleased you enjoyed your holiday and the lodge. With regards to the ramp, to be honest pictures clearly show the length of it. All appliance user manuals are located in one folder in the sideboard, in case assistance is required. Failing that, I leave my contact number in the welcome folder in case of any issues whatsoever. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The lodge was fantastic in every way."

    Just one slight note to be made, relating to the wet/shower room. The water does not drain away from the toilet area, so feet are wet when you need to go. We will recommend this lodge to friends and family.

  • "Beautiful lodge, kept to a very high standard."

    The furnishings & accommodation were excellent. Very spacious enough for 6 if needed, we only had 4 and it was perfect. All rooms very clean with lovely bedding & towels. View from balcony looking out over the sea & hills very relaxing. Lodge in a quiet area on site & private. Steep hills to the lodge but accessible by car with ample parking. Would definitely book again & highly recommend. Communication from owner if any issues.

The property

Enjoying a prime, elevated position on the Brynowen Holiday Park in Borth is this excellent three-bedroom lodge, McAuliffe Lodge, offering ramp access and a ground-floor layout.

Soak up the stunning coastal scenery everyday from McAuliffe Lodge before heading out on adventures along the Welsh coast, with plenty of on-site facilities too.

Make your way up the ramp access and into the property to find a fabulous and spacious open-plan living space, boasting two plush sofas to sink into and a wall-mounted TV for entertainment.

Gather around the stylish timber dining table and enjoy delicious meals cooked up in the large kitchen area, with fitted units and integrated appliances providing all you need on your self-catered stay, and even boasting a washing machine and a tumble dryer neatly tucked behind a cupboard!

Continue down the hall to find a family bathroom and a wet room, offering a space to freshen up to suit everyone.

Settle down in one of the three bedrooms when night falls, choosing from the spacious twin room, a double bedroom and finally a king-size bedroom, all furnished with storage for your things and decorated in harmonious colours.

Your private and enclosed decked veranda is the perfect spot for evening drinks as you admire the wonderful views over the park and Borth with furniture out here for dining alfresco too.

The Brynowen Holiday Park boasts a good deal of amenities on-site from their restaurant/bar to the convenience shop, as well as a fun adventure playground, a soft-play area, a heated indoor swimming pool complete with a waterslide, a takeaway and a kids club, with seasonal opening times throughout the year.

Head out of the park and over to the sand and shingle Borth Beach for a great day on the coast, with this area popular with sailboard enthusiasts while the north end of the beach is great for beginner surfers at high water.

For those who want to master the art of surfing, book a session with AberAdventures who can help you brush up on your skills with the help of surfing professionals, and keep your eyes pealed as you might even spot dolphins, seals and otters during your lesson!

A great day out can be enjoyed at Borth Wild Animal Kingdom which is home to a number of big cats including lions, lynx, and ocelots with daily feeding shows, as well as less ferocious animals that you can feed yourself like Shetland ponies, wallabies and rabbits, perfect for the whole family.

Venture down to Aberystwyth to see the brightly coloured Victorian houses, the lovely promenade and Victorian pier and Aberystwyth Castle for the excellent views it affords, as well as plenty of shopping, restaurants and pubs too.

Take the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway up to the tip of Constitution Hill for incredible panoramic views of the region, while the Vale of Rheidol Railway will take you on a scenic 11-mile journey in a vintage steam train, passing ancient woodland and picturesque valleys going from Aberystwyth to Devil's Bridge.
