“Faultless Cottage, everything we wanted and more...........”
Reviewed 18 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Strawberry Mill is a beautiful cottage set in a lovely quiet location within the owners plot of land next to their house. It was very cosy, traditional yet modern with a lovely kitchen and bathroom. All the utensils and everything else you could possible need. The bed was absolutely to die for.........really didn't want to get up in the morning! Holidaying with my 3 year old and 9 month old baby I was dubious whether I would feel comfortable anywhere other than home but Seunghee the owner made us feel very welcome offering a high chair and travel cot and a supply of toys to keep them amused. There was a trampoline, slide, swing and tennis court for the childrens entertainment which was a huge bonus. We travelled from the South to visit family so we didn't do an awful lot of sightseeing but the cottage is in an ideal position to explore many attractions in the area. The Mountain Zoo was a hit with both the children and grandparents and would be recommended for a day out. A truly lovely place to stay and priced well for a 3-4 night stay. We definitely would recommend and look forward to booking again next year with any luck xx

“Cosy cottage in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Had a great stay at Strawberry Mill Cottage, absolutely gorgeous and very homely. So relaxing and the owners were fantastic. A warm welcome and complimentary Welsh cakes on arrival....extremely kind and throughly enjoyed.

A lovely place to stay for visiting surrounding areas including LLandudno, Rhyl and Greenwood park, a must if you have small children. Great value for money and keeps the children entertained for the whole day.

Would we return to Strawberry Mill ??? Definitely without a doubt, one of the most comfortable and relaxing places we have stayed in a long time....

Thanks for a most enjoyable holiday...x

Thank you so much for your compliment. It always reminds me how I must try harder to care for my guests. When you return, your Welsh cakes will be lovely, specially made by me at home. With Gratitudes

Had a wonderful stay at this amazing cottage situated in a lovely peaceful, and stunning location. The hosts were lovely an the cottage was so close to lots of local attractions. We definately want to visit "Strawberry Mill"again in the future. I spent many an hour on the tennis courts with my dad and two boys and the bath was "amazing" as said by my son. Would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for lovely well presented accomodation in a great area, great for people of all ages, we all give it a five star :) xxxxxxx

“Very nice cottage, but not quite 5 star”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed here in cold wintry conditions in Feb 2013 for a long weekend with my wife and our 13 month old daughter. The good points were the location, high up the hill with nice views, nice big lounge and nice kitchen and the bedroom was really nice. The bed was large and comfortable, with nice wooden beams throughout and the bathroom was nice, with a separate shower and free standing bath, but it was a little dark (was it mood lighting!?). Seunghee was very nice and tried not to disturb us while we were there.

The reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because there are a few things that could've been better. Probably my biggest annoyance was that nowhere in the description (or photo) did it say the cottage was about 10 metres away from the owners home! In this regard it didn't feel like a secluded getaway cottage. Also, it's worth noting that the (off) road to get to the property is very pot holed, so if you're not driving a 4x4 or something similar, it could get quite annoying. Why the owners of the properties haven't clubbed together to get it sorted is beyond me. Also, the kitchen equipment could've been better. There was no oven glove for example or scourers to wash dishes (there is a dishwasher) and the oven had a tendency to smoke on occasion. I'd read many reviews beforehand which said it was great for families etc. but I wouldn't personally recommend it if you have very young children. It's great for couples, but as the living room and bedroom really aren't far away from each other and you could easily hear the TV in the bedroom, it's not ideal for getting little ones to sleep.

The only other comment I'd make is that the visitor/guide book is beyond tatty and pages were falling out. Info on the code to access the wifi was virtually unreadable and I spent half an hour trying to guess what was written down!

However, despite these small issues, all in all a nice place and worth a visit if you're a twosome!

I am so sorry to hear your comment as my aim is to give my customer five star comfort. Both houses share the same border but has separate compounds and hope you were not misled. Indeed I strive to guarantee my guests privacy in any measures. I have many family guests coming back regularly each year: bedroom or privacy was never an issue. I will look into the oven and am surprised that you could not find oven glove and scourer that I usually leave in the drawer. The access road is bumpy because it is not council owned but privately owned by the owners of this road. We want to keep this road private as possible, but it does not need four by four but will inform my guests that it has some pot holes on the way. I will redo the guest book and make it better certainly.
Still, I am glad that you enjoyed the quality of the bed and other facilities of the house as I take such pride in the care and effort I make for the cottage. I hope you can return here and give me better remark next time. Thank you for your valuable review.

“Perfect for a Couples Retreat”
Reviewed 11 April 2013 for a stay in December 2011

Absolutely perfect. We wanted to move in!!

Seughee kindly texted me whilst we were out on the Saturday morning and asked if we would like her to put a Christmas Tree in the lounge!!! We returned to see the tree, a card, and some chocolate treats.

Bed was VERY comfy and the bath... well... you'll ahve to see it for yourself!!

So cosy and beautiful, we will be returning.
