  • "This is an absolutely beautiful cottage that I have already recommended to my friends."

    We had a wonderful time and it was genuinely made better by staying at this cottage.

  • "Chris and Barbara did everything they could to make us welcome and comfortable."

    We stayed Christmas and New Year with them and were delighted to find the steading tastefully decorated for Christmas. They had left us milk, tea/ coffee and a delicious cake perfect after an 8hr drive. Garden and yard secure, wonderful walks with our dogs, yet close enough to major supermarkets.

  • "Overall the property was well presented."

    The kitchen, bathroom and lounge were well presented and adequately furnished. There were only three plates, bowls, etc it would be nice to have a few more to use. The location is also great for exploring the local area, we visited Chester, Wrexham and the North Wales coast with ease. Buckley and Mold are on the doorstep and have plentiful shops, takeaways etc. The flooring is a nice wooden finish. However, we found the floor to be very noisy/creaky to walk on, something to bear in mind if you have little ones sleeping. Also, there is a large gate leading to a country lane, which is to be kept closed. You have to open and close it yourself to get the car in and out. We found this quite tricky, especially leading directly onto a small lane, and feel that this should be reflected in the property description. The owners leave you to yourself, and we did not feel overlooked, however they are contactable via a telephone number. We discovered that the double bed had been broken by previous occupants. We contacted the owners and they fixed the bed the best they could that day. However, it was not a perfect fix, and I would expect the bed would need replacing. On the Tuesday of our stay, we were also notified that a gas engineer was going to turn up to service the boiler at approx. 11am the following day. We were not entirely comfortable with this, however we agreed. On the day of the service, the engineer turned up at 9am! Not ideal when you’re on holiday. We had booked the holiday well in advance, and feel this could have been organised for changeover day or an empty week so not to disturb peoples holidays.

  • "The house smelt of dog - the previous occupants had, had a dog in the house."

    Throws on sofa could have done with a wash as a result. Dog items left out. TV in lounge too high and / or too small. Shower screen has a leak Kitchen coffee m/c but no pods or list as bring own pods Washing m/c but no airer to dry clothes and no dishwasher Table in kitchen wobbly - Kitchen not heated

    In response to these comment the following information is provided :- The kitchen has a fan assisted radiator at floor level. Washing machine/Dryer and Dishwasher are integrated units in the kitchen, The shower seal on the bath has been refitted to stop leaks. The coffee maker is provided as a convenience for our guests. The property is professionally cleaned before each new visit and therefore we refute the statement on dogs. We are pleased to welcome visitors with or without dogs. Property Owner

    The kitchen and bathroom were both fitted to a high standard, the bedrooms and living room were comfortably furnished, the tv and wifi were excellent. The garden was perfect for our dog. There was a lovely cake to greet us on our arrival and during the week we had some ovely chats with the owners. The cottage is ideally placed for local areas to visit and some lovely walks. Thoroughly recommended.

  • "We had a great stay at Burnt Oak Stables."

    The cottage is well equipped and spacious and suited our needs for the week. Lovely touches from hosts such as cake on arrival and bowls and bedding for the dog! The cottage is situated close to Buckley and Mynydd Isa - walking distance - which was perfect as we have family nearby and could get to visit them easily. Local amenities good too - we visited The Griffin for a lovely Sunday roast and love The Rise cafe for fresh baked goods and a cuppa - both dog friendly. We will definitely be re-booking for next year. Thank you for a lovely stay

  • "I would strongly recommend staying at Burnt Oak Stables."

    We (2 adults, 1 child, 2 pets) had a wonderful week staying there in North Wales. A very good location to visit North Wales, Wirral and NW England. A trip to the tranquil nature reserve Hilbre Island (off West Kirby, Wirral) and the ancient (>1300 years old) sacred St Winefried's well shrine (Holywell) were the highlights. We also visited Manchester for the day easily. St Winefried's well is one of the best pilgrimage sites that I have visited including a spring, a bathing pool for total immersion in the well water is present and a museum / exhibition area with some relics including a fragment of the cross. Interesting to visit for its historic and spiritual value. Also some nice walks and a ruined monastry within short walking distance from the well. There are many local places including 2 ruined castles (Flint and Ewloe) (free entry) that we would have liked to visit as well and many good walks that would take much more than a week to complete; so more than enough to do in a week. There are good opportunites for walks from the cottage including public footpaths nearby. The location is peacefully, the property backing onto a field with sheep in it. The owners were friendly and respectful. The cottage (barn conversion) has been done to a high standard with a modern bathroom including a good shower and a modern kitchen. It may be worth bringing some stainless steel pans / pots unless you are happy using teflon pans, which were on the smaller side. Beds were comfortable and the living room was very nice. A very big collection of DVDs and CDs is there which we did not have time to use but could be of interest. Many thanks to the owners for arranging the cottage.

  • "The property literally has eveything you can think of including a coffee machine and washer/dryer."

    Everything seems really new and fresh. We stayed for NYE as our older dog is frigthened of fireworks and this was far enough away for us to not to be impacted by them. We briefly met Chris, the owner, who offered lots of good advice. Overall the cottage is lovely and well presented. I would suggest the property would benefit from window coverings to the hall windows as they look directly out to the owners property. Would offer a bit of privacy.
