  • "Had a lovely stay at red kite, fantastic addition of the lazy spa made it an even more relaxing stay."

    Enclosed decking area was perfect to leave the door to the hut open and my dog to relax and sniff the fresh air. The field at the start of the drive was perfect for my dogs morning walk before we went on adventures to surrounding areas. Really friendly owners that were happy to help whenever needed. 5 stars!

    It's lovely to hear from you. The decking was a recent update and I love the fact that guests and pets are both loving it. With the gate, it does give you peace of mind that your dog is safe, while you relax in the Lazy-Spa. We're glad you enjoyed the field with a doggie and owner path for a wander and sniff! Thank you for your comments, Heather & Graeme and Maverick & Goose:) Property Owner

  • "Wow, what can I say … a gorgeous lovely little slice of heaven hidden away in the valley!"

    ! Quite remote and very wild, which is exactly what we wanted. The hut was so cosy inside with lovely comfy furnishings, we particularly loved the throws and big cushions on the bed- now the bed ….. was the most comfiest bed we’ve EVER slept in! We’ve stayed in quite a few accommodations and nowhere else has ever had a bed that comfy! We loved that Red Kite is dog friendly as this meant our Springer Spaniel Biscuit could come along too. I’ve never seen him as calm and settled so well in the hut. We would have loved to have lit the log burning stove but it was too warm (back end of May) but would love to do that on a winter trip! The kitchen area was neat and compact, had everything needed to prepare and cook a meal which was perfect.The hut also has a lovely secure gated decking area which provides great peace of mind when having a dog, it meant he could potter about freely and poke his head through the fence beams to spy on the birds!! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting out on and listening to the tranquility of the nearby stream trickling away and the beautiful bird song. The views of the mountains and the mist over the tops was absolutely incredible. The lazy spa was a wonderful surprise as this wasn’t available when we made the booking but Heather and Graeme reached out to us a few days before arrival to tell us it was there and ready to use which was brilliant! It was a great way to unwind after a day of exploring! We visited Chirk trout farm and smokery which was absolutely amazing… would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to support local businesses. We had smoked trout fillets and also trout sausages which were delicious. We enjoyed a lovely visit to Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall too which is only a short drive away and that is MUST if you love nature, it is breathtaking and last but not least Lake Vyrnwy and Dam. Amazing architecture and stunning wildlife and views. We absolutely loved our stay and felt so relaxed we were sad to leave! We will definitely be heading back soon!

    Whoa, what can we say?!?! What feedback to read. Thank you for making the time to complete this for us and add your thoughts about your stay. We have never thought of it as 'a little slice of heaven' but I think Red Kite truely has that too. :) Great recommendations to our future guests - thankyou! We haven't tried the Trout Farm in Chirk but we're going to make a visit next time we are on our way to Chirk. You'd be more than welcome to visit of course. Enjoy your upcoming adventures. Best wishes Heather & Graeme Property Owner
