Reviews

Wow! That was our first impression when we arrived at this beautiful house. The owners have done a most wonderful job. The quality and finish of the fixtures, fittings, decoration and outside areas is of 5 star standard. All the mod-cons and home comforts you could wish for, whilst retaining original features and the integrity of a stunning farmhouse. After days of glorious sightseeing, breathtaking scenery and wonderful wildlife, what could be better than returning to the superb hot tub followed by a relaxing evening in front of the marvellous logburner? All in all, an absolutely perfect holiday - please, please, please, can we come again?!

Nigel & Debra,

This is a beautiful cottage! It was well equipped and cosy. Little touches like tea/coffee/cake were much appreciated. We are hoping to rebook to come again next year.

Mr Robert Jones,

We have had an amazing half term family break celebrating Grandma & Grandad's 50th wedding anniversary. Thank you so much for the bottle of fizz to help us toast their lovely lives together. We have enjoyed every minute and hope to be back soon.

Ms Carla Hughes,

We've had a lovely long family weekend at this beautiful home-from-home. We have had some lovely walks in the beautiful surroundings and just had some real quality family time! It's been amazing and we will be coming back soon.

Mrs Kate Beavon,

What a truly wonderful week! You have clearly thought of everything with this house! It was so comfortable and had everything we needed to have a lovely relaxed break. Loved how child friendly the accommodation was, especially the child gates, and that we were able to let the dogs out and not worry! The hot tub and table tennis was great as we didn't venture out in the evening! We will definitely be returning and recommencing your lovely home to friends and family. If you are looking for a home-away-from-home then Brynderwen is definitely the place to come! Thank you so much.

Sonia Gregg,

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage. The logburner made for a very cosy evening and the hot tub was exceptional, especially after a hard day climbing Snowdon. The cottage is beautifully furnished and well equipped with comfy beds and sofas. The owners have been more than accommodating and nothing seemed like too much trouble. The secluded location makes for breath-taking views and the sheep were lovely neighbours. The directions we were given prior to arrival were top notch and incredibly helpful. Thank you again for having us for our girly weekend. We hope to be back very soon.

Ms Hannah Chapman,

Fantastic cottage, the best we have stayed in.

Mr I Chapman,

We have enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week in your beautiful home-from-home. We feel privileged to have been some of your first guests and that we got to see your home in such pristine condition. The cosy lounge with its log burner and a glass of Bubbles-in-bubbles was most welcome after long days out. We absolutely loved the remoteness and serenity of Brynderwen, with our only neighbours being the sheep! Thank you for the warm welcome, fresh flowers and cake. This has been our best UK holiday experiences and we look forward to returning again soon.

Mr Duncan Wright,

We had a wonderful stay in a lovely cottage. We loved going to Bounce Below - it was great fun. Local walks around Lake Vyrnwy and the Rhiwargor Waterfall walk. Great cycle routes in Dyfnant Forest. We stumbled across a lovely quiet estate called Gregynog. The Aqueduct's near Pontcysyllte was interesting to see. Relaxing in the hot tub and playing table tennis has been fantastic. Great holiday with lovely memories. Thanks for everything.
