  • "We really enjoyed our stay and the property more than accommodated the 11 of our family."

    The only fault we found was the downstairs toilet light did not work (we tried replacing the bulb) and it hindered my visually impaired father but we accommodated for this ourselves. The house was everything we expected it to be and would highly recommend it

  • "We booked the house for a family wedding over a long weekend."

    We required a house that could cater for our elderly grandmother plus 3 babies. This house did everything. The downstairs bedrooms and bathroom were ever so helpful. There is lots of space to spread out and allow everyone what they need. The games room was a hit! We didn’t use the pool but it appeared clean and tidy. The kitchen was well equipped. The instructions for accessing the property were detailed and easy to follow. It meant we could all arrive separately but still be able to get in. The location is beautiful. Lots of walking around the local area and although lovely in November, it would be brilliant as a summer location. We’d definitely visit again.

  • "We have just returned from this property we had a great weekend with everything we needed."

    The house is very spacious, clean and well equipped. The pool was a bonus and very popular with the children. The owner was very helpful and we would definitely return to this property.

    Excellent internet connection. The owner dealt with any questions promptly. It’s a fabulous holiday home and we’d definitely book again.

  • "Llys Offa is an extremely spacious property for a family gathering with high quality and comfortable rooms."

    The covered pool is a great facility for both adults and children and there is plenty to attract both nearby and in North Wales generally.

  • "The house was really great, so much space for our family of nine, comfy beds and the pool was great - warn enough to spend a decent amount of time in but strong smell of chlorine, however if you leave the door open for a bit it subsides."

    Sauna was broken for the first half of our stay but they got it fixed while we were there and it was really good - enough room for three people at a squeeze (I had to coordinate with the handyman a few days). Would stay again as the location is great for tourist attractions like the aqueduct and Chester zoo. Be aware that the return of the housekeeping bond was over a week and a half late from the owner despite chasing a few times (you pay the owner directly, not through Sykes). Sykes had said they would reimburse us if it was late but then I could never get through to them on the phone!

    We loved watching the squirrels play through the skylight windows and the Robins out the front. A fab family home!

  • "This is a lovely house and a very social space."

    The owner couldn't be more helpful and knew the local area well, having lived at the property before renting it out. We ate out a few times at the Trotting Mare which is about 15mins away and that was brilliant too.

  • "Fab place cannot fault facilities."

    Plenty of space. Games room massive with plenty to do. Pool was great. Pity it could not have the cover opened as demonstrated on Sykes website. You need to update this in line with owners instructions. The owner very helpful and appreciated him dropping by. Had a problem with a wasp nest but I am sure it will get sorted. Group of 8 and two dogs loved the holiday

    The home is designed in such a way that there is plenty of space for everyone to gather in the same space or for groups of people to engage in different activities in separate parts of the house. Plenty of bathrooms and toilets too!

  • "The property is extremely well equipped."

    Sky TV in several rooms, a full size snooker table, a piano and a heated pool are brilliant extras. The listing on Sykes does show the swimming pool with a retractable roof which the owners don’t allow so I think this should be corrected. The caretaker couldn’t have been more helpful when contacted with a very minor issue. The house is very well configured with lots of space both inside and outside- ideal for bringing extended family together. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the property and have already booked a return visit.

  • "Highly recommended and good facilities as described, appreciated for 3 generation family gathering."

    We stayed during the very hot weather at the end of July - the pool was great for cooling off and good for swimming lengths. There is surround sound in the lounge which adds to the cinema experience. There are branches of most supermarkets within a short driving distance (10-15 mins) and points of interest e.g. Pontcysyllte viaduct and Erddig (NT property) nearby.

    The weather was tremendous so used the pool extensively ,Description was accurate and as advertised. There is quite a large drop down to the stream so you have to keep your eye on small children. The grounds needed some pruning and weeding,however this did not stop us enjoying all the facilities. Would consider returning.

    Our pre Christmas family gathering was made extra special by the exceptional comfort and facilities at Llys Offa. Clean, warm and very comfortable. Well equipped (except for a decent can opener. Ha ha) Full sized snooker table, sauna and swimming pool, kept all ages happy for hours. Lovely countryside walks straight out of the front door. Many happy hours reinforcing existing dams on the river upstream and playing pooh sticks off the bridge. Perfect for laying down wonderful memories. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
