Excellent property, very spacious. Plenty of shower facilities a bonus, plus ice making machine was a godsend. Would highly recommend this property for any large party, you will not be disappointed. Bit off the beaten track but not a problem, ten minutes from main highway.Irene from Kirkby - 14th May 2018
We had an amazing family time at this property. It is ideal for a large party of different ages such as ours. The owner and family were second to none, truly pleasant and friendly. We cannot thank them enough for their kindness and hospitality!!! We really recommend the Greenfield Heritage Park and Abbey ruins. It was great for our children who were between 2 and 11 years of age. We went to the Holy well if you want to bathe do not go on a Sunday. We visited Conwy Castle and Colwyn Bay. We also visited the Welsh Mountain Zoo. These were all good experiences for the kids and adults alike. It was that good a place that we would all like to return again. We would not change anything as we had a truly great Welsh holiday looking out at cows and sheep to the back of the house and a horse in the front paddock.Heather - 20th August 2017
