  • "A gorgeous grade 1 listed property."

    It isn’t for anyone less mobile but for the atmosphere and privilege to be in such a beautiful Elizabethan home it was marvellous. A real wintertime house! Incredibly cosy! We loved it!

  • "We had the most wonderful and magical family Christmas at Y Fferm."

    The kitchen was very well equipt, we had all we needed to make the all important big Christmas lunch. Everything was perfect, it was so much fun playing hide and seek in all the nooks and crannies of this lovely historic house. We had a good walk up Moel Famau on Boxing Day. Loggerheads at the bottom of this hill was also great for walks along the river. There is lots to see and do in the local area. The owners were really attentive answering any questions and the place looked so cosy and inviting when we arrived with the Christmas tree lit up. We would recommend to anyone for a lovely relaxing family stay. Thank you.

  • "I have problems with my mobility and found the house not disability friendly."

    The main concern that I had was that the 2 toilets were both on the middle floor and it took a while to climb the 15 steep and uneven steps to reach the middle floor. This could have been highlighted as there being this possible barrier. Otherwise, the other facilities were of a average/good standard.

  • "Had a lovely week as described you will love this house if you love history I thought it was beautiful felt lucky to experience staying here Read the comments you should be fit for the stairs and uneven floors."

    Felt really comfortable garden was great for free range kids and dogs loved cooking for the family in the huge kitchen. Hope any money made can be ploughed back into maintaining this house for future generations.

  • "This is a unique building and as a grade one listed Elizabethan manor house, it is very special."

    There are many pluses to this house. The gardens are wonderfully large and great for dogs (there is just one slightly lower part of wall - I didn't think our dogs would get over but the younger one did but only once - I think it is pretty secure). The house was very spacious. And in most cases well equipped. The local pub is great. And the surrounding countryside is beautiful. The owners of the home immediately opposite the manor house are friendly and helpful. But there are disadvantages. There are very many changes of levels in the house - which are a consequence of its age - but if you have any mobility issues whatsoever this is not the house for you. We had originally planned to use the bedroom on the second floor but the stairs were very challenging and at their top there is a beam about knee high which you have to climb over. Given that the two toilets are on the first floor - no one felt it wise to take this bedroom. And my Sister fell in the shower room and sprained her wrist - again a change in level. The home owners clearly listen to feed back so please could you: 1. put out long in-shower/bath mats and shower mats for stepping out on to please? you may also wish to think about how to indicate/highlight a step down 2. The outside furniture needs upgrading. The wooden furniture is in poor state and the rattan style is not great either. A garden dining table plus separate seating would be great please. If you are active and have no mobility issues this is a wonderful house. Very special.

  • "Stayed here with family and friends after our wedding."

    Such a beautiful historic house with lovely gardens. Hands down the most memorable stay we have had. One of our guests got very emotional after sleeping in the bed, she said it was the most comfortable bed she’s ever slept in. Loved eating breakfast round the long table with all the family. It’s been too long since we all did that. The log fire was so cosy. Didn’t want to leave and would love to return one day. Perfect in every way!

  • "A very relaxing stay,a few points to notice,serving spoons would be a help,as a Buffett, with no large spoons rather difficult,a coffee table ,or a few small sofa tables would stop having to put glasses and coffee cups on the floor,not very pleasant,as the fear of knocking them over, always in mind,maybe a nice few lamps in the lounge,rather than those rather large reading lamps,next to the fireplace,quite out of time with the property,all in all a few small changes would make this stay a ten out of ten."

  • "Wow what a fabulous property the building oozes history and the walled garden was great for my little dog who loved pinching raspberries from the bushes."

    We had some fantastic walks and days out, Llangollen was a particular highlight, we also visited Mold market due to the owners recommendation which was fab. My 8 year old niece loved figuring out what the patterns in the cobbles to the house were and can’t wait to go to school and tell her teacher all about it, it would of been nice if the office was a tv snug (my niece didn’t want to be too far away from us so couldn’t watch tv) as this seemed a bit of a wasted space. The fires were so cosy and welcoming with plenty of logs to keep us going. The welcome pack in the fridge was a lovely touch thank you for a fantastic week away.

  • "We have just returned from a week stay at this wonderful historic house."

    We found it to be extremely comfortable and really enjoyed playing with our two dogs in the garden. Orchard and paddock. We visited several local walks and Abergele beach which was amazing. The welcome pack was a great touch too. Would come back in a heartbeat.
