The property was the perfect size for us and the large garden was great for playing games. The property is well equipped with ample cutlery and crockery and well furnished. Although it was not noted in the information from Sykes there is a Barbeque which we did use. Whilst we were able to get programmes for the kids on TV we could not work out how to get live TV but this was not a real issue for us. The address information did not give the correct location on all satnav systems. It is noted as "Dairy Farms" on Google maps. Using "what3words" the address to use is "picture.promising.arching" which takes you to the gate. The purpose of our trip was for some of us to go on Velocity 2 at Penrhyn Quarry and to visit Portmeirion which were just over 1 hr away and both are unmissable. As a bonus the weather was perfect all the time we were there. Reviewed by Melvyn5.0★May 2023 "We have stayed at the Mill House before and it has always been fantastic for our large family and dogs." Lots of room for everyone to spread out or come together for games. Alison is a lovely lady and is always there to help with any issues. The garden is a wonderful asset the dogs and 2 year old great grandson had a wonderful time in it whether it was torrential rain or sunshine! Highly recommend Reviewed by Sue5.0★Dec 2022 "Lovely house." Great location. Nice and quiet. Huge garden. Comfy beds Will definitely book again Reviewed by Susan4.1★Nov 2022 "We had a lovely short stay at Felin Carrog." Reviewed by Dylan5.0★Oct 2022 "In a beautiful location." Very well equipped property inside but outside area could do with a little TLC, only a little though eg Paintwork on the outside of the property, tidy up on the outskirts of the land. Saying that we had a perfect family 80th birthday celebration and were able to use the grounds for our games etc. as the weather was great also. Would certainly book this property again. Reviewed by Denis5.0★Sep 2022 "Large comfortable detached property with good outside seating areas and garden; nice views to hills; quiet." Spacious rooms downstairs; bedroom space for our party of 6 adults and 5 children, including adapted ensuite on ,ground floor which we appreciated. (But lacked a toilet brush). Adequate kitchen with attached breakfast area which can be hot when sunny. Good location with interesting sites to visit and outdoor facilities such as swimming and paddle-boarding in nearby river. Shops and restaurants nearby in Llangollen, including an excellent wine shop. Reviewed by Paul3.8★Aug 2022 "It was difficult for us and our families to find." The instructions on the Sykes website are inaccurate. A sign at the end of the road needs to be reinstated as per the website. The garden area was fabulous for our grandchildren and dog. The area was beautiful and there was plenty to do nearby. We reported to your very helpful caretaker, Alison, that our shower door was leaky. She and her friend Annette are helpful and conscientious.

Our family party of 10 ranging from 18 months to 98 years all had a fabulous stay. The house was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm and welcoming when we returned from a days exploring and the garden was much enjoyed for games of frisbee. The local pub has good beer and food and we had pre- booked a table as we were a large party. Ideal area for walking and visiting nearby Corwen. Chirk castle is definitely worth a visit. We plan to book Mill House again next year Reviewed by Paul5.0★Nov 2021 "Beautiful house ideal for our family gathering." Lovely enclosed garden and views We all really enjoyed our stay. Reviewed by Jennie5.0★Nov 2021 "It's the 3rd time my family and I have been to the cottage and we have a really good time." The location is great and the huge field is brilliant for the kids and dogs. There are enough rooms to meet our needs too. However, in the 3 years we have noticed nothing has really been done to the place. We think it could use a bit of TLC. We have already searched to go back next year and it has gone up by £500 and we are getting to the point of thinking if it is worth it now and we'll probably look to go elsewhere. Reviewed by Paul2.5★Aug 2021 "Fabulous house with such large grounds, brilliant for our 2 dogs who loved the field." Very relaxing and perfect location with places of interest only a few miles drive either way. Reviewed by Craig4.7★Sep 2020 "The Millhouse is an amazing property with a nice lawn big enough to drive a car around." The cottage was well occupied with all the necessary furniture, white goods, and items like BBQ, wood burner. There is an outside dining area and also a nice conservatory. It is in a very nice location, excellent for local exploration and also very near the river Dee. My only negative comment is regarding cleanliness, the property could have been cleaned a bit more, the carpets were bit dusty and the cobwebs were not removed fully. I highly recommend this property for a group of 10-12 people. Reviewed by Pradeep Lal4.1★Aug 2020 "Mill House is ideal for large family groups or friends." We had a fantastic time with our grandkids. Loads of space for them to explore and play. House is basic but well equipped, just right for small children. So pleased we have rebooked for same time next year.

Outside space was amazing Thank a lot Reviewed by Huma5.0★Aug 2019 "We had a few minor issues but reported them & someone came on same day to fix." We loved the large safe lawn for our 2 dogs. The property is slightly dated but provided modern facilities. An ideal base for exploring North Wales before coming back to a lovely secluded spot. Reviewed by Linda4.7★Jun 2019 "The house was absolutely amazing!" We stayed here with 13 people in total (9 adults 4 kids) and none of us felt cramped there was plenty of room for all of us at the dinner table and the garden was beautiful and very large so we played a game of rounders! We will definitely be back to stay again. Reviewed by Jessica4.7★Mar 2019 "Really liked the cottage but there was a leak in the conservatory that came from the roof" Reviewed by Tommy4.7★Nov 2018 "There were 8 people staying." The house was extremely comfortable and afforded us plenty of space. A good supply of crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchen equipment was well received by all. Heating and hot water when required was perfect. Ideally situated for visiting other places in the region in the beautiful Dee Valley. Reviewed by Christopher5.0★Oct 2018 "Overall the holiday was wonderful." The property however is really in need of updating and a proper clean in particular the bathrooms and toilets which are badly stained (black grouting etc_) BBQ could not be used as it was filthy from last family who let the house, furniture in the garden was damaged/chairs etc.. Apart from this the house is great, but the lack of cleanliness was a let down. Just really needs some TLC. Thanks Reviewed by Jacqui3.1★Aug 2018 "Mill house is an excellently situated location offering more than enough room and comfort for a relaxing holiday." We were surprised at the space available and the dog loved it. We toured around the local area, and made use of local pub restaurants, and it met all of our expectations. Reviewed by William5.0★Jul 2018 "Unfortunately, my wife & I were unable to join our relatives for this holiday because I was diagnosed s having cancer." However our friends tell us that they were somewhat disappointed over the rather tired look of the property & in particular were irritated by the lack of hooks & shelves in the en suites. As a group we have had cottage holidays for over 10 years & only had to complain once before so this whinge is not typical! We always select 4 or 5 star properties so while there were good points about the cottage these relatively minor omissions were as I say didappointing & not what we epect from Sykes Cottages. Alastair MacSorley Reviewed by Alastair3.1★Jun 2018 "We thought the TV was a bit small for the size of the lounge." Other than that, we had a brilliant time. Janette Woolrich and family Reviewed by Janette5.0★Jun 2018 "This review should be read in conjunction with "The Dairy" feedback as we rented both properties for our family get-together." Although this was the first time we have used Mill House for the number of people staying the kitchen was extremely small. The gardens, wooden furniture excluding, were magnificent for all but especially the youngsters and as we were blessed with wonderful weather it made up for some of the niggles. As with The Dairy the comments regarding towels and garden furniture also apply here. Indeed some of the garden furniture was broken and unusable. There was also a problem with one double bed which had an old spring frame base which was very noisy. My sister and brother in law had to put the mattress on the floor to get a decent night's sleep. This was reported to the caretaker on departure. WiFi access in both properties was intermittent.
