  • "Honestly not a bad word to say about this place, had the best experience from start to finish for comfort!"

    Me and my partner were shocked on arrival to the beautiful scenes that surround this cabin as they’re not displayed in the pictures but wow! 100% we’ll be returning to this cabin! Thanks so much to the owners.

    Hi Rory Thank you for your review and the lovely comments. We are extremely fortunate to live in such a spectacular area and so happy you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon x Property Owner

    Well equipped and very cosy little cabin.

    Good Morning Anne Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are so pleased you had a good break and hope to see you again soon x Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time at Evelyn's Cabin, beautiful views, lovely hot tub, near by loads of beautiful places."

    The only reason I put 4 as we were not provided with much in regards to amenities. One toilet roll so had to buy more, very litte washing up liquid, pretty much run out. There was also mention to a dishwasher which we didn't have. Coming away these are the things people don't think to bring so definitely would go a long way to stock these items. But would definitely recommend!

    Hi Kayleigh Thank you so much for the feedback and we look forward to seeing you again really soon x Property Owner

  • "It was a really pleasant stay."

    The Retreat is a high quality cabin offering lots of room in a relatively compact package. Everything was provided, and the hot tub made for a relaxing stay. The weather was awful, but we didn't feel "cooped up" when staying there.

  • "On the face of it, the property was extremely cosy and had many positives."

    The location was brilliant, with shops like Aldi, home bargains petrol stations close by, good parking, interior decor was charming and homely, really appreciated the brownies on entry, hot tub was excellent, and table tennis and board games were well stocked, water pressure was excellent. However there were a few issues, mostly minor, but a few major ones which dampened the stay, and would've been ideal to have some warning ahead of time. We appreciate that all may not have been given, but for the price point, and comparing with previous experiences, there were some expectations missed. Minor: - The kitchen wasn't very well stocked. Salt and pepper shakers were empty, there was no oil, there was no chopping board (or atleast we didn't find one) - The bathroom had no toiletries and only one spare tissue roll - There was no table football as advertised Major: - Bed was extremely squeaky, to the point we were woken up multiple times during the night - The 'game room' seemed like it would be a room in itself from the listing, however, it turned out to be the garage with the door removed so it was always open. This is fine, except for the fact it seemed like the garage area hadn't been cleaned in a while so there was a lot of dust and cobwebs which made the space a little unpleasant to use. THINGS TO NOTE FOR GUESTS: - Not obvious from the listing, but there is another property right next-door and while the house itself is private, the hot tub is clearly visible to the neighbouring house. This wasn't an issue for us, but maybe for others.

    Cabin was just perfect for our needs. Hot Tub was a bonus. Owners were lovely too with a welcome gift of wine and home made Brownies (thank you) We will definitely return when looking for a place to stay near Llangollen .

  • "The cabin is lovely and the views are stunning!"

    We had a delightful break, and would recommend wholeheartedly! Only marred slightly by someone (presumably the owner but he didn't introduce so...) cleaning out the hot tub at 8 o'clock in the morning of our departure day. The cabin is east facing, so lovely sunrises, and we'd got into the habit of not shutting the blind in the kitchen area (which looks out over the deck) so we could wake with the morning sun. To have someone rattling around out there whist we were still in bed felt a bit off. As it was, we needed to pack but he wasn't to know that we hadn't done that the night before and had a morning dip in the tub planned before we left... Oh, and the fridge is really noisy when the compressor kicks in. Through the night it's a nuisance seeing as it's about 10 feet from the end of the bed. Not a complaint as such, because that's what fridges do. But light sleepers might find it disturbs their nights...

    Such a beautiful area, enjoyed many long dog walks in the hills. We did not want to leave.

  • "We had such an amazing time here - the cabin had everything we needed and made our stay in Wales very enjoyable."

    The games room and hot tub are also a very nice touch to which we enjoyed after going on long walks around the area. If myself and my partner were to be quite picky, we would make the following improvements: • A curtian over the front door window (for privacy). • possibly a taller fence on the rear of the hot-tub (again for a little more privacy whilst enjoying the scenery and stars above). Ps. We did purchase a few washing up sponges and left them in the cupboard under the sink for other guests to use

    Was fantastic for our pooch too. The brownies on arrival were delicious.

  • "The cabin was beautiful, very comfy and well designed for a perfect stay."

    The games room was an added bonus which provided hours of entertainment. An excellent hot tub allowed star gazing whilst relaxing in the bubbles. The only reason we have not given 5 stars is due to the fact the cabin is so close to another accomodation. It's not truly secluded but that doesn't take away from the lovely experience we had. Sara and Evelyn were lovely, extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

About the location


Llangollen 4.4 miles; Bala 14 miles.

The small village of Glyndyfrdwy is situated amidst the beautiful Dee Valley, just 4.4 miles from the picturesque town of Llangollen. Situated close to the foothills of the scenic Berwyn Mountains, the village is renowned as the home of Owain Glyndwr where, in 1400, he proclaimed himself Prince of Wales and thus began his 14-year rebellion against the English. Today you can still see Owain's Mount - the eroded remains of a 12th century castle motte, whilst the village itself offers a village pub. Great walking is available with the Offa's Dyke Pathway nearby, whilst canoeing on the River Dee is available for those who enjoy water sports. The nearby town of Llangollen offers a good range of shops, pubs and eateries and is internationally famous for its annual Musical Eisteddfod as well as for white water rafting opportunities. Take a steam train through the picturesque Dee Valley, visit the National Trust properties at Erddig or Chirk Castle or take some time to explore the Clwydian Hills or the delights of Snowdonia National Park. A fabulous location at any time of year!
