  • "This was the perfect holiday home for all the family as we celebrated a big birthday."

    We were all made to feel so welcome on arrival and our dogs just loved the big kitchen where they could rest after a long walk through the fields. The beds were so comfortable with plenty of pillows and an extra blanket if it was cold ( we didn't need these as it was nice and warm). The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of pans for cooking, plates for eating on and even plastic plates and cups for the children. Great thought has gone into providing everything that was needed to ensure we had a fabulous time. The garden was fully fenced so our dogs could play in the garden together with the children. We used the kitchen quite a lot because the table was big enough to accommodate all of us and it was nice to sit in there and relax with a glass of wine after a day's exploring. A big thank you to the owners for recommending places to take the children as this was so helpful. The home was spotlessly clean in every room. Thank you for the cakes, wine and milk left for us to eat - all this was polished off very quickly. Would definitely add this to a list to visit again.

    Thank you very much Joy for your comments , and we're delighted that it all worked so well for family celebrations. Property Owner

  • "Bryn Celyn is a delightful holiday home for big families and groups."

    There were 9 in our party and plenty of space to spread ourselves around the home. The kitchen/dining room was plenty big enough to accomadate us all. The location is so close to points of interest in the area as well as local walks for the more energetic. We had a fabulous time and while there met our congenial hosts and their springer spaniels. I would definitely recommend this property.

  • "A lovely property, very friendly owners living in adjacent property."

    Had a few visits from their Spaniels during our stay, which was really nice. Perfect place to enjoy a nice quiet week away, or as a base for walks. Plenty of places to eat nearby, and great choice of shops to get food if you want to cater for yourself. Highly recommended, would definitely stay here again.

  • "A very welcoming and friendly greeting on our arrival, the cupcakes, bubbly and fresh flowers were a lovely surprise."

    After a slight mishap with a piece of furniture this was rectified very quickly and another lovely bottle of fizz as an apology, although not needed as this was dealt with with no fuss. Granddaughters made new friends with the dogs and were very reluctant to leave them. A lovely family and a very much needed holiday made special. Thank you.
