  • "We had a lovely stay and would definitely consider coming back."

    I've scored down for the following: The wood you get with the £20 is not sufficient for three nights. We could see that more could be purchased but realistically there should of been enough provided in our opinion. It would be good to have lights on the steps that go to the roof terrace. The shower wasn't very clean, there was mildew at the bottom of the tiles where it meets the shower tray. It is not as private as the listing makes out, there was no privacy while in the hot tub as the hedge is non-existent, likely due to the wind and time of year. The seating area in the Lodge is not comfortable. Despite the above, we would likely return and really did love our stay here.

    Set on the side of a hill with fantastic views across the valley to the mountains beyond. The facilities are modern, very clean and well presented. The hot tub was brilliant once up to temperature and held the heat very well over night. Would I stay again? Absolutely!

    Thank you. The views certainly are fantastic. If you do return to stay with us again you can ask for the hot tub to be lit prior to your arrival, if that helps? Property Owner

  • "The stay itself was great, and the location is stunning."

    It was our first time with a log fired hot tub, which took some getting used to but was a great addition to the property. Unfortunately the heating didn't work throughout the stay. Not too much of an issue for myself and my wife, but it would have been an issue if we had our daughter as the small bedroom never got above 15 degrees. Apart from that the stay was lovely and we would come back again.

    We are so sorry about the heating issue, but glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your feedback Property Owner

    Attractive property. Furnishing whilst practical, the seating is not very comfortable or relaxing.I understand as the property allows four legged friends. The shower cubicle needs attention, very grubby between the two glass panels. I have images for your reference. I found the Vacum cleaner, but no means of washing the hard floors. The views from the property are spectacular even in the rain. Please note on your instructions to find property , the turning is next to a CHAPEL , not a Church. Makes a difference when asking directions from a Welsh man.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear the property did not fully meet your expectations. We have high cleaning standards and have flagged the shower cubicle issue with our cleaning staff. Property Owner

    Very clean throughout and the kitchen was well-equipped. There were lots of outdoor spaces to enjoy in good weather, including the rooftop terrace and the hot tub. A couple of minor niggles were that the living room seats were a bit too firm for lounging around on, and there was a lack of places to hang towels to dry (we didn't have an airer, but didn't get round to asking for one either), but we had a lovely stay here.

  • "What an amazing stay!"

    The location is absolute bliss - surrounded by rolling fields, wildlife and stunning views. The roof terrace is perfect for breakfast and sheep spotting! Very well equipped stay, the only thing we were missing when we arrived was a dishcloth/sponge so we could wash and clean up, but other than that everything else was provided. The hot tub was amazing to recover in after our Yr Wyddfa climb. We didn't go out locally but saw some lovely walks/highlights close to the chalet too to explore next time. Already thinking about when we can go back, I can't recommend this stay highly enough! If you want to switch off and truly unwind, this place is heaven.

  • "This holiday lodge is absolutely amazing!"

    The location is perfect, the lodge is stunning and we had such a lovely weekend away. The views alone are worth the visit :)). The price we paid was extremely reasonable given the quality of the lodge. Taking everything into consideration, we loved Hilltop and we will definitely return. If I had to find just one bit of feedback for improvement and I know it has been raised on previous reviews, but the seating area in the living room is far from ideal. After a lovely romantic day taking a walk and going into the hot tub, it would have topped it off to be able to snuggle down with my partner on “a sofa” in front of the tv with our feet up. That’s currently impossible given the current seating in the lodge living area. But it didn’t spoil the holiday and so I pass my thanks onto the owner & Sykes :))) Nicola

  • "Property is absolutely wonderful and loved the hot tub and the roof terrace though the facilities were not up to standard and did spoil our time there."

    The shower would not give hot water and on the first day we noticed if you flushed the toilet the shower would temporarily work then go freezing cold again. We were given no welcome pack physically or electronically so we had no idea how anything worked. I had to contact Sykes cottages who were absolutely lovely and wanted to get the matter sorted though when it was passed onto the owner she was nothing but rude. She stated, “You coped all week like this, I’m sure you coped one more day”. She said a caretakers number was left in the welcome back to which I replied there was not one and then she said well we did email one- which they didn’t. Phone call with the owner left me crying, but I can’t thank Sykes cottages enough for being so understanding and giving us compensation that the owner refused to give. Despite the property being gorgeous, I would not recommend to go here based on the rudeness of this owner.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed to read of your experience. As we understand the caretaker did meet with you on arrival as usual, and invited you to let him know of any issues, he didn't hear from you during your stay. Had you let him know there was an issue with the shower he would have rectified the issue promptly. Sorry you were unable to find the welcome folder which is always available for guests at the property. Property Owner

  • "Lovely location and amazing view to wake up to every morning."

    However, it wasn’t very well equipped in the kitchen. There isn’t much storage at all in the bed rooms so I would recommend backing light. The bed sheets were stained but this was sorted fairly quickly (the next morning). The hot tub is lovely once you know how to get it started, the instructions don’t mention that it takes hours to heat up on the first time but after it’s lovely, just be ready to be running out every 10 minutes putting another load of logs on. It does stay warm so it doesn’t take as long to get to temperature after the first heating of the water. The seating area isn’t comfortable. Personally I wouldn’t say this is a 5 tick accommodation.

    We thank you for your feedback and are sorry to hear that you didn’t completely enjoy your stay. We are glad you enjoyed the hot tub once it was at the correct temperature. They take up to 2 hours to fully heat up when done correctly; and this is a service which we offer guests prior to arrival. Property Owner

The property

Corwen 5.8 miles.

Nestled on the outskirts of Maerdy near Corwen in North Wales, is this contemporary two-bedroom lodge, Hilltop.

Taking its name from its superb, elevated position which offers exceptional views from its bubbling hot tub or private roof terrace, Hilltop makes for a perfect dwelling for couples or a family of four who are looking to add a touch of style to their North Wales adventure.

Step into the well-equipped kitchen, featuring a handy dishwasher, where you can look forward to whipping up flavourful delights ready to enjoy in the living/dining room at the table for four.

If the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco affair and dine out on the front patio or up on the roof terrace where you can soak up the breath-taking vistas on offer.

After dinner, why not indulge in a blissful soak in the wood-fired hot tub, toast marshmallows round the fire pit or wash away the day in the outdoor shower?

As the evening grows darker, gather your loved ones on the corner sofa and select a much-loved film from the Smart TV.

When sleep calls, retire to one of two well-presented bedrooms, a king-size and a bunk, both perfect for catching your rest in.

In the morning, wake-up tired eyes with a refreshing rinse in the shower, before serving up morning coffees and planning the days adventures.

Explore your local surroundings, where just a short drive away, you will find the welcoming Goat Inn, where you can sample the local ales and treat your loved ones to a tasty meal.

From here you can drive up to the grand National Trust site of Erddig, a large 18th-century manor with 12,000-acres of garden.

Make a stop in Wrexham which offers excellent shopping opportunities, wildlife rich walks within the Moss Valley Country Park an and a good selection of golf clubs.
