    The only thing or husbands struggled with was getting in and out of the shower as it is quite high, a grab handle would be useful.

    It was just a nice and peaceful weekend and I’ll definitely be coming back. Only thing I’d say is there was no working batteries in the dvd remote to watch a film but we worked that out. Thank you for an amazing stay.

  • "Had a lovely stay for the new year."

    The after eights, Prosecco and message board was a lovely touch and really solidified our welcoming. The cottage itself is lovely, cosy with original features and the history of it really gave you a sense of what the cottage used to be. The beds were super comfy, and place was very clean, with the owner coming every day to ensure the hot tub was clean and filled. We were also given the space and freedom to enjoy the holiday, and felt we had the privacy to do this. I would give this stay 10/10, I have no complaints. My only recommendation would be for there to be roller blinds or some kind of coverage for the kitchen back window/door, but again this is more of a recommendation than a complaint as we had no issues with it. Thank you very much for a lovely stay. We will definitely book here again.

  • "Pioneer cottage has been one of the best places that we have stayed."

    The cottage was so lovely and clean when we arrived, and very welcoming. The other little things that were in the cottage that we haven't had before was a basket of cleaning equipment with antibac sprays and cloths. There was also (for once) ample toilet rolls in the property, to last us the whole 2 weeks that we stayed. The owners were so lovely and were only ever to pleased to help us out. They live next door, so the hot tub is serviced everyday. (not that you will ever see Tommy... He was steath like) What that meant was the hot tub was always clean whenever we wanted to use it which was great. The house was lovely and warm and we lite the fire every evening (whilst watchng i'm a celebrity) So in conculsion this property is super cosy, with all the luxuries you would expect to find in a holiday house. The hot tub was amazing, the beds comfy and the owners lovely. In my opinion I have stayed at quite a few properties let by Skykes over the last couple of years, this has been the best by a long way. Totally needs to be upgraded in the listings to a 5 star not 4. Thank you so much Jane and Tommy- We will be back. Jeffrey, Helen and Annabella

  • "We’ve just returned back from a fabulous break."

    Great location for day trips to Rhyl -Llandudno -Conwy- Betws Y Coed House located in a quant little village benefiting a couple of pubs and convenience store. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub most evenings.The only criticism was we found the bed uncomfortable hard and squeaky as we woke each other up when we turned. The speed of the Wi-Fi was intermittent and the TV would benefit from as booster as it wasn’t a good signal.

    Thank you for your feedback, with reference to the mattress this is less than 12 months old and hotel quality and the bed is an antique Victorian bed made of steel and we have never had an issue previously. The Smart TV is only 2 months old. The WiFi has recently been upgraded and we believe is the highest output in this rural area. However, we are currently looking into other options. Property Owner

  • "What could we possibly write that would sum up such a magical stay?"

    ! From start to finish, our 10th wedding anniversary was made all the more special at Pioneer Cottage. As soon as we pulled up outside, we were obsessed. The pictures just do not do this gorgeous Cottage any justice. It is so much bigger than we expected but so picture picture and cosy. The decor is so comforting but light, we instantly felt at home and wanted to stay forever. The lovely owners had left us a note to wish us a Happy Anniversary along with some Prosecco and some truffles! We were absolutely blown away by the lovely gesture. There were also some complimentary Welsh cakes and butter for which I will be eternally grateful as we had forgotten to purchase some at the local store. The hot tub was divine after a day of hiking and the kitchen has everything we needed to rustle up some food. The bed was very comfortable with ample pillows and bedding. We had brought some entertainment with us but we needn't have bothered as there were many films and games at the cottage which is very handy! The surrounding town is very cute and our Sunday dinner at the Pioneer Inn was sublime, the best Sunday dinner we have ever eaten! The surrounding countryside is breathtaking and it is easy to see why it is named as a natural beauty spot. We spent many hours exploring before looking forward to an evening back at the lovely cottage. We will absolutely be back and we can't wait to do so! Thank you so much for such a special weekend.

  • "We all had a wonderful stay at Pioneer Cottage, all beaches were dotted around the cottage 20-25 mins drive away."

    We visited Talacre beach which had an unused lighthouse you could climb up and was quiet, idyllic and partly non commercial. We also visited Rhyl and Prestatyn which again had lovely beaches that were easily assessable with children and were more commercial with indoor soft plays, arcades and rides etc. There were many walks around the cottage and a short drive away was sightseeing attraction Moel Famou which had three walks one of which took you up to a tower (ruins of a castle) the views were breathtaking and well worth the children age 6 and 11 making it up there. The cottage itself was always a pleasure to return to, well equipped, comfortable and of course with the added bonus of the hot tub in the lovely sun trap courtyard which the four of us certainly made the most of. There was a lovely collection of games at the cottage for the children to play in the evening when you could drag yourself away from the hot tub, some DVDs and Jane had left us a homemade cake, which was perfect with a cup of tea. The village itself had two local shops select convenience and central stores, central stores has a lovely butchers inside and staff are friendly and helpful. There is also a lovely little play park down the road opposite the cottage which is sandy and the children enjoyed that too. All in all we had a lovely stay and the cottage was difficult to leave at the end of our holiday. Many Thanks to the owners for offering the perfect base for our happy family holiday.

We had a problem where we had accidentally jammed the door from the kitchen to the downstairs loo, but the owners were round within 10 mins and it was sorted. The village was very quiet, with a well stocked shop, a cafe, hairdressers and a pub where we had the most tasty Sunday lunch I think I've ever had, the Piccadilly. The hot tub was heavenly, we weren't out of it the whole weekend. Parking is street parking but we had a space right outside the cottage with no problem. There is a square opposite with a few more parking spaces. I could not reccomend this place enough. It really made our celebrations very special and I will be back. Thank you very much for a lovely stay. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
