Excellent house and very welcoming owners

This is a huge house 10 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms with a hot tub. Went there for a weekend with 13 members of my family and some friends to celebrate 2 birthdays. Spotless house, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms. The owners Simon and Jeanette were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful setting the house has everything you could need. Large rooms and lots of space for a large gathering.

Fantastic property

We stayed here 31st may to 7th June 2013, we celebrated my husbands 40th with family & friends starting with just adults on the fri & sat then the kids were picked up on the Sunday, this house went down really well with everyone who stayed, the views from the hot tub were fantastic & was a great hit with the adults while the kids loved the pool & playing tennis, a couple of fitness fanatics used the gym, but the squash courts we never used. The full size snooker table was also a great hit with the lads! We had fantastic weather that week so sat outside on the decking area for most of the day, (they could do with another set of table & chairs on there, we did request that the decking be made more secure as a couple of planks were loose). The evenings were spent mainly in the lovely conservatory as there is plenty of seating in there! Kids spent a lot of time in the library room playing games (which there is plenty to choose from). Couldn't fault any bedrooms or bathrooms especially the master bedroom, the kitchen is well equipped, there was also plenty of fridges for the cold drinks to be stored (oh & food) with 2 fridges in the main kitchen (1 being a big american fridge freezer) 1 in the annexe kitchen & a beer fridge in the snooker room, the house was very clean & tidy with bathrooms supplied with soap & toilet rolls & kitchen supplied with washing up liquid, dishwasher detergent, plenty of tea towels & even kitchen roll. The area has some lovely walks with great views. We walked to The Poachers Pocket a couple of times also we would recommend going to The Boat Inn at Erbistock this is in a dead end road in a great setting with great food! All in all its a great place & would highly recommend & definitely stay here again. Simon & Jeanette the owners who live nearby are very friendly & welcoming. Really hate to moan but We just have 1 negative, The wifi (which actually wasn't working when we were there) should be included in the price of the house not at an extra charge of £20.

Best Weekend Ever

What a fantastic weekend. An absolutely magnificent house, the hot tub was amazing and one of the best weekends away I have ever had. Simon and Jeanette the proprieters are such lovely welcoming people. We are already looking to book again. Fantastic venue for a large party of people everything you could possibly want and need.

Lovely, large and inviting

We came here as a group of 15 ladies to celebrate a couple of birthdays. It was easy to find and the house is just as lovely as the pictures show it to be. The house is very big but warm and inviting, with nice comfortable beds and lots of bathrooms to choose from. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. There was an annual village party held on the lawn during our stay which we attended; we were made to feel very welcome and had a really great evening. I would highly recommend for large groups of family and friends and we are already looking at re-booking for next year.

Amazing house!!

I stayed here with 15 family members and friends with plenty of space. We were all amazed by the fabulous house and the fantastic location. Every guest was more than happy with their fabulous bedrooms and living space. The hot tub was just divine and piping hot with a spectacular view. The house is so big that at one point we actually thought we had lost our 'lady with a baby' group member, however she was hidden in bubbles in the jacuzzi corner bath reading her book! Everything you could possibly need is provided. We had such a wonderful time. I can not recommend the house highly enough to big groups - You wil love it!!

Perfect for a family gathering!

This is the perfect house for a large group of any age, (in our case 1 to 87!). The accommodation was beautiful and the on site leisure facilities (swimming pool, tennis court, squash court, hot tub - we used them all) meant that there was plenty to keep everyone busy. The snooker tournament also went down a storm! Plenty of outdoor space for the children to play and a lovely conservatory for those who just wanted to read. The surrounding area is beautiful with great views from the hot tub! The walk to Chirk Castle was easy and Llangollen is a 20 min drive away (Thomas the Tank Engine was actually there!!! Kids were delighted). We self catered for some of the week but would recommend the "Poachers"- good food and quite reasonable. The owners also left the numbers of pizza / takeaway delivery places if you don't fancy cooking at all. Asda also deliver - very handy for stocking the beer fridge, also very handy, in snooker room. Good value for money if you have a large enough group and even the journey home didn't take that long! All in all, a great place for a "staycation".
