  • "A wonderful apartment in a beautiful location."

    We were given a very warm welcome from the outset by the property manager, Gail and felt looked after throughout our stay. One of the few places we have stayed at where the reality of the apartment matched the website photos inside and out. Will definitely return for another visit.

  • "Really comfy beds and nice location."

    We went when it was hot which highlighted that there is no easy access to a garden and definitely not one suitable for dogs and kids. I think it would have been a better choice for adults travelling in Autumn. That's not the owners' or propertie's fault - we weren't expecting such great weather and had we known would have selected alternative accomodation.

  • "This was a lovely apartment, so clean and well maintained."

    Beds were super comfy and it had everything you would need. There was free parking outside which was a bonus as well as an ice cream shop across the road and two pubs next door (although one next door was closed while we were there) The back gardens are beautifully looked after and at here is a bench that sits facing the sun. It would be great if there was a table and chairs or more seating in the garden but we just used our picnic blanket to sit on the grass. We would recommend and we will be back.

  • "We've just returned from an absolutely wonderful 4 nights in the Declaration Suite over the Easter bank holiday."

    The apartment was very well appointed and IMMACULATE, with a spotless kitchen and mould/watermark free bathrooms - even the skirting boards were dust free! The beds were very comfortable and the main bed was wider than a King. The second bedroom was arranged as two singles for our teenagers; both beds were comfortable and there was a fantastic dressing table, which our daughter was very pleased to discover! The owners supplied thick, soft blankets which were perfect for sofa snuggles, and protecting the lovely white bedding from paw prints. The music theme decor included a record player (which the kids had never seen before!) with Bluetooth technology, keeping everyone entertained. Everything Jules and Mike advertised is accurate - the owners really do care about guests having a fantastic experience. Gail managed our stay personally, sharing local information, offering to make table reservations, and checking in on us to see if we were happy or needed anything at all. She also recommended a local takeaway that we ordered from on JustEat - recommend the pizza! We didn't try any restaurants/pubs, but there were plenty to choose from locally, and in Prestatyn and Rhyl. First class service, in a first class establishment! Points to consider: 1) the high windows have roller blinds blinds, which are very easy to use, but allowed light in through all sides - easily reduced by putting spare pillows on the windowsills to block the gap! We would take blindfolds next time. 2) there are OODLES of sightseeing and walking opportunities nearby; definitely take walking boots/shoes as the local typography is very hilly. There's a flat, paved beach walk/cycle from Prestatyn to Rhyl, which took us an hour to walk both ways with the dog. Be aware that the path is open to dogs, but the sandy beaches aren't from May until after the summer. Check when the tide goes out if you want sandy toes in the a.m.! 3) there's a Tesco, Lidl and Aldi a short drive away (plus the usual shops found on retail parks). We would've packed less food and shopped locally after arriving. 4) if you're not used to sleeping in a flat/apartment, you might consider ear plugs, just in case the guests above you are up later than you are. The first guests above us made more noise, but the second guests were very quiet and didn't disturb us at all. Gail was thoughtful and vigilant in ensuring guests were aware and considerate of eachother.

The Waterfalls Apartments

The Waterfalls Apartments are beautifully finished inside a historic chapel that dates back to 1823, (owned by local couple Jules and Mike Peters), situated opposite the stunning Dyserth waterfalls. Mike is the lead singer of The Alarm, the renowned Welsh rock band, appearing on stages around the world with U2, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen and many more. The Alarm Chapel is also the site of many recorded Alarm albums over the years and when The Alarm are not touring the world, you will find Mike and Jules pottering about the village of Dyserth where they reside (and where Mike was born) with their two children, Dylan, Evan ap Michael and Golden Retriever, Ziggy Stardust. The Chapel has been lovingly developed by Mike and Jules over the last few years, transforming this special holy place into five modern apartments with Italian furniture and finishings. All the apartments come with off-road parking as well as flexible sleeping arrangements, for extra convenience. The village of Dyserth, which was once recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086, lies below the slopes of Moel Hiraddug - designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1985; its wildflower spaces harbour such rarities as white violets and orchids while overhead you may see buzzards wheeling and, if you are very lucky, peregrine falcons. The name Dyserth has evolved from the original Dissard which means “hermit’s cell”, the village is steeped in history and the remnants of previous dwellers are dotted around the landscape - from an ancient pre-Roman hill fort on the top of Moel Hiraddug to the industrial heritage of quarries and lime kilns. Visitors have been coming to Dyserth since the 18th century to enjoy the fresh air as it is situated several hundred feet above sea level. The village is renowned for its spectacular waterfall (situated opposite the Waterfalls Apartments) which cascades seventy feet from the River Ffyddion in the centre of the village near the Parish church of St Bridget with its superb stained glass windows. Within walking distance from the Chapel, you can visit the local Waterfall Shop as well as local pubs, The Red Lion and New Inn, whilst further up the hill in the upper village is the Bod Unig Pub (where Mike was born) and Frankies Coffee Shop (all favourites of the Peters’ Family). An award winning butchers is situated on the High Street as well as a chemist, beauticians, hairdressers, gift shop, barbers, 2 convenience stores and Post Office plus a Chippy and Indian Takeaway! Nearby there is the dramatic ruins of the 13th century Rhuddlan Castle, where Mike and Jules promoted Rhuddlan Castle Rocks, a concert featuring The Levellers and Ocean Colour Scene as well as being the location for the award-winning film Vinyl, filmed at the Castle and the Chapel, featuring acclaimed actors, Phli Daniels and Keith Allen; in Rhuddlan there is also a stunning golf course (discounted green fees on request as the Peters Family play golf). A short drive or walk takes you to the coast, (the Peters’ Family are avid hikers), and you can explore the local seaside towns of Rhyl and Prestatyn which boast miles of golden sandy beaches and stunning new hip beach bars, including the KiteSurf Bar, The Pavilion 1891 Restaurant & Theatre and the funky Nova Beach Cocktail Bar where you can watch the sun go down after a memorable day spent between the mountains and the sea. Further afield, the Chapel is the perfect launch pad to enjoy the scenic majesty of Snowdonia National Park plus the gateway to adventure and all that local firm Zip World can offer, be it Treetop Nets, a Forest roller coaster, or the fastest zipline in the world; not to mention Surf Snowdonia where you can enjoy the surreal and invigorating experience of surfing in the mountains! The island of Anglesey beckons in the distance, less than an hour’s drive away with sandy bays, rocky coves, windsurfing and the best parts of the North Wales Coastal Path which leads you all along the coastline from The Chapel and beyond. Head inland to the lakes and the market towns of Denbigh and Ruthin, set against a backdrop of castles that have to be seen to be believed. Whichever direction your staycation takes you, the Waterfalls Apartments are a splendid base whilst you explore the beauty and diversity of all that North Wales has to offer. The Peters’ Family tour the world every year but have a passionate love affair with their local Village and are excited to welcome you to share in all their favourite experiences of Home entwined with their experiences from distant shores. There is a welsh word called ‘hiraeth’ with no direct translation other than a ‘longing’ or a ‘desire’. We hope that The Waterfalls Chapel will stir this feeling in you and create a holiday of a lifetime.

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