  • "Everything was brilliant for us."

    The location is great and the views are spectacular. It really is a romantic escape. Friendly hosts Ali and Anna are attentive without being intrusive. only thing I think you need to make clear is that there are approximately 20 steep steps up to the property and a fairly awkward staircase up to the mezzanine. Would be tricky for anyone with walking difficulties

  • "A very clean, tidy, well equipped and comfortable pod with stunning views."

    The hot tub is a bonus and we enjoyed a few glasses of wine in it watching the sun set. Lovely owners who gave us lots of ideas on places to visit during our stay but then left us to get on with our holiday.

  • "Really helpful and welcoming hosts."

    We mentioned the mattress on the bed, although new, was very soft - bingo they have took our feedback and ordered a more supportive one. Views to die for, you can't beat watching the sun disappear over the Great Orme with a glass of something in your hand. All the facilities in the lodge are top quality with everything thought out. A local pub will come and get you if you book. Well done and we will be back.

    The cabin was breathtaking and our hosts Ali and Anna went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. The small touches they've made to the cabin such as the pop up TV went down very well not to mention the absolutely amazing private hot tub which was just perfect! The views from the cabin are beyond belief with a beautiful overview of the North Wales horizon. If you're looking for a luxury break away from everything (and everyone) and with wonderful, professional and easy to deal with hosts, Offas Dyke Escape is definitely for you. We'll definitely visit again soon - thank you Ali and Anna for having us.

  • "The whole holiday, from initial booking to final checkout, was first class."

    The hut was immaculate and exceeded my expectations; it’s really well equipped and they have spend money on ensuring that guests have the best of everything. The welcome pack was well received, especially after a long drive - lovely biscuits, tea, coffee, beer and wine. The hosts communicated with us in advance and made us feel really welcome. The views are spectacular, especially when sat in the hut tub! It’s within reach of a wide range facilities so there will be plenty for you to do. We went to zip world and go below, again, but were great fun. I’ll be booking again and honestly, can’t recommend this place enough. 10/10, in all regards. Book now and you won’t be disappointed.

    The views from the pod were amazing. We were blessed with beautiful weather which meant we could sit inoors ( or outside at the table or on the swing) with the doors wide open and watch the sunset. It felt very private but the owners Ali and Anna were to hand if we needed anything, otherwise we were left alone for blissful relaxation. Ali suggested some lovely walks , places to visit and places to eat The location has easy to access from the main A55 across North Wales so visiting places was easy. The hot tub was very welcoming on the cooler days - the huge bath robes were very comfy after a soak! Thank you Ali abd Anna for a lovely week and hopefully we will return at some point

    It has everything you can ask for for a few days of peace and relaxation in nature, and the owners add little touches that make the stay even more special.

  • "Due to current coronavirus restrictions, my wife and I opted to stay here for a week for our honeymoon and wow, what a great choice that turned out to be."

    This is the perfect place for couples to get away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life and relax and I couldn’t recommend staying here highly enough. The pod itself has everything you need for a short stay and is very impressive once inside. However it is the view that really steals the show, on a clear day you can see for miles, with views of snowdon and the sea both clearly visible from both inside and outside of the pod. You can spend many an evening in the hot tub watching the sun set with a glass of something. It is a great location for all of north Wales attractions. There is also a great restaurant/pub called the White House within 10 minutes walk and the restaurant also has a spa on site which is well worth a visit during your stay here. The owners are fantastic, they can’t do enough for you and make sure you are having a great stay. For us, this is a place we could see ourselves coming again and again for a short relaxing break and we very much look forward to coming here again in the near future!

Access to the lodge is gained via impressive electric gates and along the driveway that opens out onto the spacious forecourt, where you will find plenty of off-road parking.

Take the exterior steps from the parking space to discover the lodge, where you can savour the awe-inspiring views before heading inside.

Admire the interior wood cladding of the open-plan living space, offering a distinct and authentic ambiance, which is complemented by the feature tree branches and leaves, as well as the contemporary furnishings and fixtures.

Step into the compact, yet well-equipped kitchen, where Victorian-style tiling lies beneath the sleek suite featuring a combi microwave/oven, a hob and fridge.

Concluding the downstairs is the shower room, whilst upstairs there is a plush king-size bed with award winning Emma mattress, where there is a self rising TV, perfect for relishing in those lazy mornings in bed.

Each morning, look forward to opening up the patio doors, which allows a seamless integration of the outside in and step onto the patio to delight in alfresco meals with the stunning North Wales countryside and coast as your backdrop.

At the end of a bracing day on the national park, savour a moment of luxury and relaxation with a dip in the hot tub to further enjoy the views of Snowdonia and rest beneath a canopy of stars, bliss!

For amenities, take a short journey into the small city of St Asaph, home to a collection of traditional pubs, classic inns and bistro restaurants, as well as a number of shops for browsing and picking up essentials.

Just half a mile away, and within walking distance of the property, is The White House restaurant and spa which has plenty of amenities for you to enjoy, and two miles away you’ll find The Piccadilly Inn who are more than happy to collect you and drop you back off at the pod free of charge in a luxury vehicle.

Whilst here, be sure to head to the glorious coastline, where summer afternoons can be spent on the beaches of Talacre, Prestatyn and Pensarn, or travel slightly further afield to the bustling coastal town of Llandudno to enjoy the 19th-century Pier with shops and a games arcade, the North Shore beach and a tram journey up to the Great Orme.

Walking opportunities are in abundance here too, with the Snowdonia National Park resting just a scenic drive away, where the more experienced hiker can take on the peaks of Snowdon, Glyder Fawr and Tryfan, whilst a stroll around the beautiful Llyn Brenig and Alwen Reservoir offers something more leisurely.

The city offers delightful riverside parkland and a children’s play area with picturesque river walks where you may see kingfishers, sparrow hawks and buzzards. St Asaph is home to a historic cathedral, dating back 1400 years in areas and holding the reputation of being the smallest, ancient cathedral in Britain. It is also renowned as the location where the Bible was translated into Welsh in the 16th century. In September, the city comes alive with the arrival of the North Wales International Music festival, which takes place across numerous locations, culminating for the last few years in a television finale, broadcast from the cathedral. St Asaph offers numerous amenities and activities, from traditional pubs, to gastronomic dining experiences, numerous craft and gift shops and local clubs offering a 9-hole golf course, horse riding, angling, and crown green bowling, as well as a thriving leisure centre and the Tweedmill Retail Outlet.
