  • "We loved staying at this holiday home."

    We came as a group of four families, and enjoyed every minute. Despite quite cold weather, there was a lot to do, and the nine kids especially enjoyed the games room and cinema room. The hot tub was a hit with us all! Nigel was very accommodating and helpful. Some great memories were made.

    The property was very clean and spacious. The lovely hosts left a wonderful welcome basket. They really can't help you enough and are only on the end of a phone call. What lovely people and house. Thank you so much!

    Nigel was so accommodating making sure we settled well in the house for a week. He even suggested some sights to visits. The house was clean and we had a lovely time relaxing and making memories with our friends and family. Highly recommended.

  • "The property was great for our family get away/celebrations ( 4 generations)."

    There was lots of space for everyone to enjoy (12). The cinema room was a great hit and the kids enjoyed the games room. As the weather was lovely we all enjoyed the hot tub and patio. The kitchen was well equipped. The only thing that was slightly missing was storage and surface space in some of the bedrooms, but we managed. The property has great views and is easy to find, eventhough down a single track. There was great communication with Jane, even recommending some local places. All the family really enjoyed our stay.

  • "The perfect house for our family."

    We were all comfortable and had plenty of space. There were 16 of us and it’s difficult to find suitable places for us to stay. The cinema room was a great hit with the family. There were additional tables and benches that meant we could all sit together in the dining room for meals. Two fold up beds were provided for our two youngest grandchildren which meant we didn’t have to use the sofa bed. The local roads and the driveway were a bit challenging for us East Anglians but the views were stunning and worth travelling around for. Plenty to do in the area for children and ‘old fogeys’. One little thing would have helped a bit, somewhere to hang our towels in the bedrooms so that they dried a bit (a hook or rail maybe) and a grab rail by the downstairs shower to help when stepping out. The downstairs shower was great and definitely the favourite! No one wanted to come home - testaments of a great holiday.

  • "We had a fabulous time."

    The property was very clean and well equipped. The children didn’t want to come home, in fact I didn’t myself. We had some lovely weather which was a bonus but even without the sunshine there’s more than enough to keep everyone entertained. Would hire this property again

  • "A great location for a multi-generation family holiday."

    Loved the house and all the amenities. The house is set in beautiful countryside and we were lucky enough to have good April weather. The back patio, with the hot tub, was a real sun trap.

  • "What a great property, what a great location."

    Four generations of our family plus partners loved everything about the property. Plenty of rooms, so we wasn’t on top of each other. Cinema room was a hit for everyone, from Frozen for the kids, to football for the oldies, to a family quiz night. Would definitely book again. Communication during the week with owners Nigel & Jade was excellent. One item missing, yes we had the snow, and it was heavy and deep, grit box at top and bottom of the drive would have helped us, but we did get out eventually, and again Nigel and Jade were very understanding and even offered us to stay a further night or 2. Great holiday

    Hi Brian. That’s for the feedback - this is the 1st time that we have had issues with the snow for over 3 yrs - in case it happens again we will order a grit bin and keep grit in there just in case it snows like it did last week Glad you enjoyed the break and look forward to welcoming you back again Nigel and Jane Property Owner

    With a family group of 14 including Grandchildren there was something to occupy all, and with the space in the house we weren't on top of each other and had space to relax. Slight reaction to dog hairs downstairs, but after a good hoover that was soon sorted out. Had an issue with the downstairs shower which was sorted out quickly by the owners with no fuss. The view is lovely and it is so quiet, we would definately go again

  • "House was nice enough, however amenities were extremely lacking."

    No handsoap or hand towels in the toilets, only 1 towel each which isn't ideal with the hot tub. Yes it has a dryer but to wash and dry 8 towels would have taken a long time! Kitchen wise, significantly lacking. We had one small chopping board to cook and prepare food for 8 people, no scales or measuring jug, no large glasses, and some of the glasses we did have were chipped and cracked. We had to purchase tea towels, hand wash, cleaning cloths and scales. Having stayed in a large house like this before, we expected more, especially given the cost and the fact that its highly rated. Owner also rang on way home twice, they couldn't find one of the keys and if I didn't respond within 1 hour I would be charged for a locksmith. The key was in the room all along, and I didn't appreciate the tone used, especially as it was there all along and we'd left the house cleaner than when we arrived. Disappointing stay and wouldn't recommend.

    Hi. We take all feedback ( both positive and negative ) very seriously Our replies to your points raised are as follows Towels - we always leave 1 bath towel and 1 hand towel per guest and these are left in a central location on the landing for use as required Tea towel - yes there is always one in the property Soaps - not sure what went wrong here as they are normally replenished after every stay- Apologies - had you brought this to our attention at the time we would have rectified it immediately Kitchen amenities - there were cleaning pads under the sink Glasses , scales, measuring jug - they must have been damaged by previous guests and not reported to us - apologies- we will replace immediately- again had this been made aware to us at the time we would have replaced immediately Chopping boards - there are 2 in the property which I think is adequate Keys to patio door - yes you had left them but had placed them under a lamp and not close to the door - they were not easily seen - had we not been able to find the keys before the next guests arrived ( later that day) then this would have this would have been a fire hazard- had there been a fire in the property and there were no keys to open the door then I would have been liable to legal prosecution - this is why I had stated that a locksmith would have been needed Cleanliness of the house - I strongly disagree with your comments - please refer to previous guest comments Regards Nige Heckman Property Owner

  • "There’s a reason this is our second visit."

    We enjoyed staying so much last year that we wanted to book it for this year, and again, the place didn’t disappoint. From first walking into the home, everywhere was clean from top to bottom and we received an amazing welcome pack from the owners that was greatly appreciated by us all! The cinema and games room was used every night. The kitchen was spacious to move around in and there were plenty of cooking supplies left for us that we hardly had to bring anything of our own! It’s like our own kitchen away from home. When we went on walks every morning, the views were stunning and *luckily* the weather was also good to us! The home is also located near Denbigh which was also helpful for food shopping, takeaways, shops, and pubs. As we’re interested in open water swimming, there were plenty of places for us to visit during our stay. And after a long day of sightseeing and swimming, the bedrooms were also very comfortable. Overall, this home is one of the best we’ve stayed in. Thank you Jane and Nigel for being such wonderful and kind hosts, and we look forward to staying there again!

    Very clean and the welcome hamper was a really nice touch. The only issue we had was the limited seating at the dining table. The house sleeps 16 but there were only 10 chairs so we split iur group between the dining room and kitchen. It was manageable but more chairs would have been better. Thanks for having us. Helen

The owners were very accommodating and helpful when we contacted them. One recommendation for the property is to have a bigger fridge and freezer. There were 2 fridges. One under counter and a fridge freezer in the main kitchen. We found this wasn't enough for 14 people. Would definitely stay at the property again.

  • "Bryn awel is a beautiful semi remote house."

    We were a party of 17 including two babies , two under 5’s and a teenager there’s were all catered for . The cinema room and hot tub were highlights and there was plenty of space for everyone . The owner Nigel was friendly and accommodating and came to our rescue when the previous tenants had changed the heating and we struggled to change it back. The only negative is the access to the house the country lanes are one car narrow and currently full of potholes not easy to navigate with loaded cars . The drive to the house is steep but I believe this is having work done to make it easier . But being so high means the views are spectacular so well worth it.

    The road to the property is a single track ( not stone) and adopted by the council - yes there are some potholes which are due to be filled by the council. You just need to take your time when driving down it Property Owner

    We received a welcome pack from our hosts which was very much appreciated and made us feel very welcome. The house was very clean and tidy with everything you would expect for a luxurious home. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need for a large group and the adjoining dining room was more than ideal for mealtimes. The rear outside area was fantastic with a touch of 5 star luxury, plenty of seating, a hot tub and brilliant BBQ. The front outside area had a fantastic play area for children and seating with stunning views. The house itself is vast with a large television room with a huge log fire and plenty of seating. There is a smaller room with a television and seating where I managed to relax away from our main group. The bedrooms were all spectacular and our whole group slept very comfortably in the provided beds. The bathrooms were very luxurious and the showers worked perfectly, good pressure and always hot. The house had already ticked all our boxes but to entertain us even more there was a games room with a pool table, with a cinema room located next to it, which our group absolutely loved. Also another positive was the fact that the house had working WiFi, which was very important for most of the group and we also had access to plenty of streaming services for our film nights in the cinema room. The owners, Jane and Nigel were very friendly and more than happy to assist us with any queries we had during our stay. Our group have been visiting several different holiday homes over the years and without a doubt Bryn Awel has been the best so far. We had an amazing holiday there and would definitely recommend it to all our friends and family. We would not hesitate to return and are already looking at next year. David, September 2021

    It was very clean when we arrived and me and my friends felt at home instantly as soon as we stepped in to the house. I would most definitely recommend the holiday home to groups of friends as well as families. The home literally ticks all boxes as it was spacious and had many amenities, from the hot tub to the amazing cinema room! There wasn’t a point or time where any of us occupants felt as if we chose the wrong place to visit, as there was always something to do in the home. The bed arrangements were perfect to occupy all 13 of us and we still had room for me more! We really loved the bathrooms as well, with the best shower head as well as baths. The hot tub outside was a great luxury and definitely allowed us to feel as if we were in a 5 star trip. The BBQ outside as well as the huge kitchen was also a great plus for the lads who were doing the cooking! Last of all the different lounge areas and dining areas were great to accommodate a great group setting as we felt a sense of cohesion as the rooms were big enough to accommodate us all at once to eat and ‘chill’ together. The owners of the property also greeted us on departure and were very nice people. With such a great location near spectacular sceneries I would once again most definitely suggest and recommend this holiday home to others.
