  • "After waiting or 2years to visit Plas Yolyn due to Covid we certainly were not disappointed."

    There were 7 couples in total...family and friends and we all thought the house was fantastic. It had everything we wanted both inside and outside. Everywhere was immaculately clean from the very impressive bedrooms, the large dining room, the lounge and the snug and well equipped kitchen. We had 2 members of the party who went fishing a few days whilst others played tennis, others table tennis or simply relaxing on the beautiful patio. The hot tub was an added bonus too. We all enjoyed it so much nobody wanted to leave and definitely looking to book to come back next year. .

  • "What an incredible opportunity to stay at Plas Yolyn!"

    Sometimes you look at photos on a website and the reality is a bit different- oh my word this was not the case here! It was amazing- fabulous sitting rooms, we loved the log fires, a proper banqueting dining room, superb kitchen and great to have a big utility too, loved the games room, very impressive bedrooms, the furnishings and little extras were all such good quality and so tasteful and the grounds were super too! The tennis court was well used even in January and we loved loved the hot tub. Everywhere was immaculately clean and it was lovely to see the welcome hamper on the kitchen table too. Lovely touches such as the history of the house were really appreciated. Even when there was a slight problem with the dishwasher, Gary arrived in less than five minutes to sort it! A perfect place for our family to celebrate my special birthday weekend. We would certainly love to stay at Plas Yolyn again. We can’t recommend it highly enough! Thankyou.

  • "Great place for our extended family New Year celebrations."

    A number of the facilities (piano, tennis court, hot tub, games room) combined with plenty of space for everybody to either congregate or enjoy a little "quiet time", made this the ideal home from home for us. Would definitely like to return maybe in the warmer months to allow more use of the grounds, outdoor activities and to further explore the area. Definitely a place to recommend - we had a fantastic time!

    Everything about it is first class. We did not have to fight on who was having which room ( as we usually do) because they are all well furnished to a very high standard and all had their own shower rooms. The grounds are extensive with loads of safe space for kids to play Definitely go back one day

    The property is amazing, it catered for all our needs and more, we felt comfortable, like it was our own home, the hot tub was used everyday, we had a bbq, games of tennis and also used the games room many times. The bedrooms are so nice and all with ensuites which is a great advantage. Communication from Rachael the property manager is excellent, she was very quick at responding to my questions and gave me detailed information about the property. I was lady of the manor for a week and hope to return one day.

  • "This was a delightful house, extremely quiet and well secluded with little or no traffic noise."

    The on site facilities were very good; en suite rooms were large and beds were very comfortable. It was a perfect site for adults but possibly a little remote for children who need to be occupied with modern activities. Gary was chatty and helpful! The Aga in the kitchen gave the house a warm feeling and soon became the focal point of our visit with meals taken in there easily although we were a group of ten and not fourteen as the house would accommodate. It created a very enjoyable stay!

    It was a family reunion with varying ages (youngest 11). We were spoilt for choice in terms of bedrooms and places to sit. All bedrooms are amazing. We were lucky with the weather so sat most evenings outside. We ate in the formal dining room twice which was lovely. If we require a place of this size in the future I would definitely return.

    All rooms were spotless on arrival and are all very nicely furnished. All three generations enjoyed a post lockdown two week stay, with no one feeling on top of each other, with grandparents playing tennis and the piano with the grandchildren - the hot tub was a real treat. The owners have thought of everything and the management team were helpful and accommodating. It is ideal for the larger family get togethers - would highly recommend.

    We fully intend to return soon, as it was perfect for us.

  • "Instructions for central heating could be better with the thermostats also improved."

    Most impressive wi-fi speed considering the property is in the middle of nowhere, but the mobile phone coverage is a bit iffy Impressed with the plentiful supply of logs for the fires, and the aga was permanently on providing heat and a great cooking facility to complement the standard electric oven. The owners left a very generous hamper of food and drinks for us to start the holiday Hot tub and sauna were well used by our family. The bedrooms were big and we were able to accommodate the 15 of us easily as 2 extra beds were provided so that 4 of the grandchildren were able to share one room. Just be aware that by default single beds need to be requested as most bedrooms have large double beds. Although one of the additional toilets has full disabled facilities none of the en-suites which are with every bedroom have The property could be improved by a little more thought in this area. Overall however I would have no problem in recommending this superb property in the Shropshire countryside.

  • "There were 13 of us in an extended family travelling from Australia to spend a week together at Plas Yolyn."

    We chose the house from the Sykes web site and were very pleased with the outcome. The house was all we expected and the surround grounds were just great for playing cricket and other games. The hot tub was in great use by young and old! The bedrooms were large and comfortable and well equipped, as was the living areas of the house. We all left after a week with nothing but praise for the house and infrastructure. Although the house is not within easy walking distance of a village, we found the drive to obtain supplies easy to manage. There is a lot to see around the area. Given the ages of some, we did not do a lot of walking but there are plenty of opportunities for walking. In summary, we enjoyed the amenities of the house, found it was a home away from home, and would certainly recommend it to families wishing to have time together.

    We were a party of two families, ranging in age from 2 to 65 and all enjoyed our stay immensely. The rooms were large and comfortable, and we had lovely evenings eating together in the dining room, and relaxing by the open fire in the living room, while the chefs among us made good use of the kitchen facilities. We all enjoyed the hot tub and became fans of croquet, playing some hotly contested games. The gardens are beautiful, and extensive, with plenty of room for children to explore and run about. There is plenty to see and do in the area - British Iron Works, Llangollen and its canal, and Ellesmere. We also made a trip to Chester which is only three quarters of an hour away. Stans superstore in nearby St.Martins provides all your grocery needs, and is only a few minutes away by car, although there are national supermarkets in Ellesmere and Oswestry. We had a wonderful time, but feel we only scratched the surface of this area, and would love to return!

We all enjoyed our en-suite luxury and beautifully equipped bedrooms along with the grand public areas - particularly the kitchen, to which we all seemed to gravitate, the snug where the readers found a quiet place, the lounge into which we all fitted of a night time, and the hall where we had two evenings of songs and music from the shows. The grounds were explored by all and used for morning jogs by our fittest members whilst two of us made use of the hot tub. All in all - a place to remember and, hopefully, to which to return.

The property

Ellesmere 4 miles.

Plas Yolyn is a luxurious stately home, steeped in history and situated 4 miles from Ellesmere in Shropshire.

Striking an imposing image as you first enter the impressive grounds, this Grade II* listed property dates back to the 17th century and has been variously connected to the Sheriff of Shropshire, Oliver Cromwell and Welsh royalty during its colourful existence.

Having been carefully renovated and restored in recent times, the original architecture and decorative features of this magnificent property have been retained to provide an impressive holiday home with more than a touch of class and luxury, including a bubbling hot tub and a two person sauna.

The gravel drive sweeps round to the house with its impressive facade and the heavy wooden door leads into a grand entrance hall, furnished with a baby grand piano and leather conversation sofas placed in front of a large woodburner.

To the left is an impressive banqueting hall with wood-panelled walls, with room enough for the whole party to sit comfortably, whilst to the right there is a drawing room with garden doors onto the patio, not to mention gorgeous original sash windows and shutters, as well as a roaring open fire.

The country kitchen forms a central hub around the generous breakfast table and oak rocking chair, warmed by an original oil AGA and retaining a splendid red quarry tile floor and exposed oak beams, complemented by modern granite work tops.

There’s also a cosy snug just perfect for reading, again enjoying a warming woodburner and this room leads through to two stylish ground floor bedrooms, both with en-suite shower facilities.

The first floor is accessed from either the main staircase or the secret former servant’s staircase, both of which lead up to five well-proportioned and beautifully-presented bedrooms, all boasting en-suite shower facilities and garden views.

In addition, a spacious family bathroom offers a free standing bath, a walk-in shower and a two person sauna, whilst there are three further cloakrooms available on the ground floor.

Children and adults alike will enjoy the well-equipped games room with full-size table tennis, Smart TV and many games and toys, ideal for a rainy day's entertainment.

Outside the grounds are equally impressive, covering 10 acres of countryside, with a formal garden to the side of the property, where you will find the hot tub and patio area surrounded by established borders, whilst to the front of the house there’s a croquet lawn, leading to a dried-up leat with lawns stretching beyond.

To the rear of the cottage you will find a hard-standing tennis court and practice wall and an orchard, as well as woodland walks and a pretty lake.

For the more adventurous, perhaps try tackling a section of the nearby Wats Dyke Way, or the Offa's Dyke trail which can be found in Chirk, just five miles away.

This recent winner of a 'Sykes GEM Gold award' is a truly special property in a fantastic location, sure to leave you with superb memories of a luxurious break away.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
