  • "The accommodation was just as described, and in a quiet location, with room for our dog Reggie to wander around freely."

    Plenty if wood and ki doing supplied, so that we could light the indoor or outdoor burners whenever we wanted. We would recommend it to anyone who wants a peaceful getaway, not too far from lots of lovely beaches and walks.

    From the second we arrived to the moment we left Kath was an amazing host! Every little detail has been thought of in these cute and cosy huts! Right down to a wine glass holder in the bathroom! An absolute perfect break away with our fur babies! We’re definitely going back! Central for so many areas- beach, hills, towns and castles!!

  • "This is our second visit to the Shepherds Hideaway and the Clyde's hut is just as great as the original Shire hut."

    Kath is a wonderful host, nothing is too much trouble and the welcome treats upon arrival (fresh eggs from Kath's chickens, a bottle of something nice and homemade shortbread) are fantastic. The hut has everything you need and is enclosed which was perfect for our dog staying with us. Although not far from the NW expressway the area is lovely and peaceful, a hideaway as described. We will happily stay again - thank you Kath!

  • "My husband and dog Rosie spent a wonderful Christmas period at The Cyldes!"

    The owner Kath was very friendly and kind and made our stay so special. We were made to feel very welcome and loved eating the deliciously fresh duck and chicken eggs from her own birds on her small holding. The location of this hut is great,- only a short drive to the beautiful hills of Snowdonia and Clywd and close to the lovely historic towns of Conwy, Bangor and Denbigh (Conwy has some wonderful ice cream parlours and lovely little boutiques too!) The hut itself has a warm and cosy feeling with a log burner and deep victorian rolled edge bath to soak in after a day of hiking. Our dog Rosie loved playing in the enclosed land and we adored watching the many birds, horses, sheep and other wildlife that the area boasted. We will definitely look at staying at this little gem off the beaten track again! Thank you so much Kath and family for a happy and memorable Christmas 2018!

  • "Sykes had the description absolutely correct, but what made my holiday 100% better was the lovely host Kath, who went the extra mile in many ways."

    The added touches of things i may have forgotten to take were there, (tea, coffee, milk), then there was the others, which I won't spoil for anyone going to stay. There was more than enough fuel for the log burner, water was lovely and hot too. I took my German SHEPHERD Pearl, to a SHEPHERD hut that is situated only 12 miles from my home, and we LOVED it. Wanted to stay longer. Thank you Kath for your attention to detail. You are marvellous and we will see you again definitely! x

    The hideaway was perfect to get away from the stress of everything. The owner made such an effort from welcoming us to being on hand for any questions or problems we had. We will definitely be back!

    The hut was just as described on the website. Enjoyed my stay immensely and the dogs had plenty of room to run around in the fenced area surrounding the hut. Will definitely return hopefully in the future and stay for longer.

  • "Our host for the week Kath was very friendly, helpful and offered if we needed, to look after our dog Maxi for us."

    Maxi had a wonderful time, plenty of room to run around and lie down whenever he pleased. The Clydes is very comfortable I am 6ft 3 and not once did I feel cramped. The hut is very comfortable, my partner who feels the cold actually had to open the windows one evening as she was too hot! We didn't use the wood burner but we did use the small electric radiator one evening when the temperature dropped. The kitchenette has more than enough space to cook, although my partner pointed out it would have been easier to prepare things if there was a board across the sink. We loved the wine and welsh cakes that were left for us and the notelet was the icing on the cake. The bathroom my partner said is 'to die for' sheer luxury in other words! Cleaning ones teeth in a morning and watching the birds at the bird feeder was an added pleasure, we even saw a woodpecker one day. We felt very much at home, more a house guest than a paying guest. It was a shame that the pub within walking distance was closed, instead we drove into St Asaph and ate a few of our meals at The Talardy Hotel (Which we can both thoroughly recommend too). Kath and The Clydes made our holiday effortless we were very sorry to leave.

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.
