  • "The house was so spacious and very homely."

    Had all the amenities you could think of, couldn't have hoped for more. The snooker and games rooms were used all weekend and a brilliant addition. We were made to feel very welcome. The accommodation was very clean. The original features, grounds and views were stunning. The owner, Caroline was lovely and helpful. Will definitely book again for next year!

    With plenty of rooms and a large kitchen/snooker room for entertainment this accommodation did not disappoint. The views from this property in the morning on the terrace with a nice cup of tea were amazing and could of stayed for another few days! Thank you Caroline and your friend for all of the help and guidance before arrival and when we arrived.

    A glorious, peaceful setting with plenty of walks or trips to the lake. The house has a fantastic snooker room in which our family enjoyed games every night. Outside was a swing and slide structure perfect for our 4 and 7 year olds. Caroline, the owner was always on hand in a helpful and friendly way. Definitely a place we'd like to return to.

  • "We were a family of 11 staying at Pengwern."

    A lovely quiet location with fantastic views. The house was large enough for the family to spread out without all being on top of one another. The youngsters loved their games room and older ones were in their element in the 'Billiards Room' and bar. The bedrooms were sizeable with good storage space, and everything we needed in the kitchen had been provided. A lovely comfortable retreat!

    Owners, who live across the way, are helpful and friendly but not intrusive. It is a 30 minute or so drive to supermarkets at Oswestry, but you just need to plan ahead, and there are 2 fridge freezers in the kitchen to help. The view is FABULOUS. Pool room is above the kitchen and snooker room is below the huge bedroom on the first floor at the back of the house. This bedroom has a single bedroom sectioned off within it.

  • "What a lovely place, massive and with everything you could think of, plus some I’ve never seen in a rental property (full size snooker table was used to good effect!"

    ). Master bedroom is huge (almost too big, though missing hanging space), and the other rooms are a decent size. Lovely kitchen and living room - a bit cool when we arrived and took a day to warm up, but toast by the time we left, and the fire & Rayburn made for good evenings with ‘natural’ heat. Great place for a group, especially as 3 of the beds are zip and link - so hard to find a big property that doesn’t have a load of doubles, pointless for a group that’s majority singles (or half of a couple) on the trip. Good location for walking as well. Thanks for a great stay/birthday!

  • "This is a lovely old farmhouse and a wonderful find."

    The photos do not do justice to how amazing the setting and views are. It is just you and the owner's cottage, and stunning views across the valley - you can see another cottage across the other side of the valley, but otherwise it is just fields, trees and sheep. Top marks to Caroline as a host - extremely helpful both before and during the visit. Her cottage is also set back behind the house about 100yds away on the side you don't really use (behind the main photo), so absolutely not instrusive in any way. There is no phone signal, but super fast broadband and a wifi mesh throughout the house, so you can use wifi calling if you really do want to still get those work phone calls. There is so much room as well. A huge snooker room and bar, a 1st floor Pool table and wii games room, a living room with comfy sofas and fireplace, a spare dining room for those table-top board games (or just extra serving space outside the kitchen), and then a large outside patio to take in the amazing view. The master bedroom / family suite is HUGE. Walks from the doorstep. ASDA deliver there. Bala about 30mins away. Loads of parking. We were a three generational family get together of 13 and the place was ideal - we will be back.

    The place is incredible! The owner was so friendly and welcoming. There were 15 of us celebrating a birthday. I was concerned that with the owner living next door we might have made too much noise but she assured us this was no problem at all. Highlights of the property were definitely the snooker and pool rooms, where the groups spent most of our time, though it was also nice to have the cosy sitting room to relax and watch TV in too. We all came away from the weekend absolutely not wanting to leave, and will be back for sure!

    The house far exceeded our expectations, both inside as well as outside with fantastic views! The Snooker room was perfect for evenings in, especially in these times, the pool table had just been refelted and also had plenty of use, there was so much to do the time flew. Had a lot of of meals alfresco due to the perfect weather we enjoyed. BBQ came in very useful and enjoyed a game or two of table tennis which had been recently fixed. Managed to walk to the waterfall, would describe walk as moderate to hard, some of us drove round and met the walkers there with a picnic. We have already booked to go back in December, fingers are crossed Caroline was very helpful with hints and advice, led us to a fantastic gourmet burger van on a picnic area above the lake.

  • "Fantastic cottage nestled into the Welsh countryside which provided amazing views and an abundance of walks right from the doorstep."

    Caroline was a fantastic host, always on hand to answer any questions we may have had or to help with any requests. We were a party of 13 ranging from 18 months to 42 with their being 6 adults, 5 teenagers and 2 babies. The cottage provided enough space and facilities for us all to have a great time. The only slightly disappointing thing was that Caroline explained when we arrived that the pool table had been damaged by the previous family and as a result the felt was badly ripped in various places so was unusable. This didn't sit too well with the teenagers but thankfully the snooker table was on hand to make up for this. The cottage is huge and provides more than enough space for large groups. The bedrooms were great and everybody had their own space. The outdoor space was also great with plenty of room to sit out and enjoy the sun sets over the valley, play table tennis, use the rope swing or star gaze, which provides amazing views of the night sky. The cottage is conveniently placed for a number of activities. If you like mountain biking there is a downhill bike part literally just down the road/next to the cottage. Lots of great walks and runs direct from the door. Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) provides a wide range of activities and water sports such as kayaking, paddle boarding etc and we had a great day here. Also about an hour away is a great beach at Barmouth. But equally you could easily spend a week in the cottage and not have to leave. There are small local shops in the two neighboring villages and bigger stores in Bala which is around 13 miles away. The village also has a couple of pubs which also serve food. All in all a fantastic week in a great cottage with a wonderful host. Would definitely recommend Pengwern cottage.

  • "Showers not working and Low water pressure, Very poor Internet connections."

    Pool table and table tennis table both broken.

    Our showers have been checked and are all working correctly and do have good water pressure. It may have been that two people flushed other toilets while you were in the main bathroom shower, this is the only shower that sometimes gets affected when this happens. Our pool table is working correctly, if the push in device to get the balls is pushed too hard then the balls can end up at the back of the table. I think this happened in your case. The table tennis table was in very good working order before your stay, the table net was broken off during your stay. We have now repaired this.Our internet/wifi is working without interruption and the best we have in this area. It is not fibre optic speed as yet but this is going to be implemented in the next 12 months. Property Owner

    We ranged from 5 to 76 years of age and there was always something to do if the weather wasn't great. The views were amazing. As we had come after lockdown it was the perfect place for us to get away, be able to go on walks around Lake Vyrnwy without having to worry about having too many people around us. We stayed in our groups of 6 when out and about but found a perfect picnic area that had no-one around for us to chill and enjoy the lake. Caroline was really helpful and left some literature in the cottage about the history of Pengwern (which we loved) and the local attractions and amenities. Would love to go back and the kids didn't want to leave!xx

    We travelled as a party of 13 - (9 adults, 4 children) Pengwern is a fantastic home from home and Caroline (the owner) has made sure guests can enjoy & discover the house and the surrounding area with ease & comfort. The secure bike store, boot room & drying room ensure you can experience the great outdoors and all your clothing, footwear and equipment is safe, dry and accessible. The snooker room/bar area became a daily activity to look forward to after long days of exploring/walking and sight seeing and apart from going to the local put to watch the football on BT Sports we really wouldn't have had to leave the comfort of the house after our days out. It has everything you need. Great music collection (to suit all tastes, loads of DVD's to watch and a lovely patio area to sit out in to enjoy the sights & sounds of the stunning surroundings. The games room for the children has everything your children could wish for (their own space) being one of them - our children had hours of fun in there and it's a brilliant addition to a magnificent country home. There are detailed walks/bike rides in a folder in the house which were really useful and the owner has taken time & consideration in making these as informative as possible. The area itself is just stunning - lots of walks & bike rides from the house, sheep/lamps outside your front door and a wood and mini mountain to climb right on your doorstep, no need to take the car out (unless you run out of supplies) so as long as you plan ahead you really can escape the hustle & bustle of everyday life. We arranged for an online shop from Asda to deliver our shopping which was extremely useful as the nearest supermarket is in Oswestry which is quite a distance away from Pengwern. The kitchen/cooking facilities have everything you need and there is lots of space around the two tables to accommodate multiple guests at meal times. We will definitely be returning - we had the best time and from several houses we've stayed at previously - Pengwern ticked all the boxes :)

    We had at least 10 great cottages to choose from which ticked all the boxes. I can honestly say we made the best decision, this cottage exceeded our expectations more than we could of imagined, 4 families all under one roof and everyone had their own preference on where to be, kids in the pool/games room adults in the snooker room sitting around the mini bar and some enjoying a quiet movie around the log burner in the lounge. Caroline was so very helpful, even weeks before we stayed at the cottage Caroline had given me heaps of information regarding biking trails in the area. Which literally started from the doorstep. The kids are crazy about wildlife, so for them to able to sit out on the tree swing amongst the sheep meant the were out there rain or shine in their element! I personally have never missed a place so much once being back home, really was a dream lifestyle come true! If I could do anything different next time, it would be to pack less clothes because we had no need to leave the cottage! All the families will be returning next year.
