Fantastic

Just back from what I can only describe as one of the most relaxing breaks I have ever had. Fantastic setting. The cabin is located on a lovely piece of land away from the holiday crowds but still within easy access to most towns and with fantastic views. There is a small pond with decking leading out into the middle with table and chairs...lovely to sit round in the evening. The cabin itself is well decorated, very clean and has all the facilities you would have in your own home. Extremely comfortable and watching the sun go down in the evening, in the garden with a glass of bubbly was heaven. Would highly recommend a stay here and will definitely be booking again soon. :):)

Lovely weekend

Stayed at the cabin with a friend and our 2 girls aged 9 and 8. Lovely place and easy to find. Patricia was very helpful and quick in responding to queries before we arrived. The location was ideal and spent a lovely sunny day in Llandudno (only 20 mins drive) on the Saturday. The girls loved the grounds and had fun exploring and on the trampoline. Evenings were lovely and peaceful with the chiminea burning. Only one disappointment was BBC 1 lost signal for the England game on the Saturday night, however i'm sure this was not the fault of the owners. Would definitely stay again, Thank you.

Lovely location. Clean and tidy.

Lovely location and the accomodation was clean and tidy. However we did not have TV reception for most evenings and my husband had to keep going outside to re-direct the TV aerial as the wind kept moving it. After a tiring day out exploring the beautiful countryside....we were both tired and all we wanted to do was relax......so it was a spoiler for us. Sorry :( Overall condition was a bit rickety and marked down facilities and amenities due to TV, but Shaun was very helpful when we contacted him.

Management Response
25 Jun 2014
Many thanks for your review Jane and apart from the poor TV reception im glad you enjoy your stay. We pride ourselves on cleanliness so again many thanks for your appreciation of that, the cabin is a bit rustic in character but we feel the bright modern decor and look of the place does make for a homely feel. We have uploaded a youtube video for "Meysydd Derw" so people can judge the interior for themselves. We do offer hi-speed WIFI which can enable free worldwide TV programmes and sport on websites such as Iplayer, 4OD and Feed2 which you would possibly have benefited from if you had chose to use it with a device or laptop. However to address the TV issue we have arranged for a TV engineer to look at the aerial and tuning so the freeview should get all channels in future. Thanks again

A great location, peaceful but easily accessible

The cabin is in the middle of nowhere and yet had very easy access to the town centre and major roads to the rest of Wales. It's decorated to a very high standard, although it seems like it was built in a haphazard way as the floors are rather lobsided and walls/cabinets etc are uneven and breaking apart in some areas. This doesn't take away from the overall feel though. When we arrived we found the cabin very well cleaned and furnished beautifully. The location is surrounded by fields on one side, the road on the other. It's a very quiet road though and we weren't aware of any traffic noise.
For future visitors I would advise bringing your own towels, we were told linen was provided and mistakingly assumed this meant towels too, so we had to make a 8pm dash to the nearest Asda store to buy them upon arrival!
We had a fantastic stay at the cabin and I would definitely return in the future.
My only suggestion to the owner would be a lock on the bathroom door, with 4 adults staying we had to announce our visits to the bathroom to ensure we weren't walked in on!

Cosy and Isolated

people found this review helpful

Although I wouldn't recommend trying to find this lodge at night like I did (very difficult), when I arrived the lodge looked so cosy and inviting. There was loads of space to park outside, and it was enclosed by a gate, so was nice and private and safe.

The floor was a little wobbly in the kitchen but the kitchen itself was lovely. We spent most of our time in the living area watching TV and drinking Wine, it was great! I wish we could have gone and explored the area so I could say more about it but due to the weather we didn't really want to leave. It was so windy part of the fence blew off, so people might want to check the weather before booking :)

The main bedroom was gorgeous and we had a lovely little break, wish I could have stayed for much longer than 2 nights. Will try and go back again soon :)

Truely Fantastic!

We have stayed here recently and the location is fantastic, lots to do for families. The log cabin is lovely and very cosy and peaceful. Wake up to cows and sheep and beautiful country side.The cabin has a log burner which is great and a gorgeous outside area with another burner. We went with two younger children and we had a fantastic time. Weather was lovely and the cabin a fantastic get away. We will definately be staying there again!

Cosy Cabin

My husband, two children (8 & 10) and myself, stayed here in October. We got to the cabin quite late in the evening. When we got there the heating was on, as were the lights. Which was very welcome on a cold dark night.

As a couple of the other reviews have mentioned, the cabin isn't finished to very high standard and the wobbly floor was a little disconcerting! What the cabin lacked in the finishing details, it more than made up for by being spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. It's in a great spot for exploring North Wales and there is a little town centre very nearby.

One tip, if you are going to arrive late in the evening, get directions from the owner, as its easy to miss, especially when the satnav takes you down the wrong, very dark, very creepy country lane!!!
