An Amazing Stay by Will, Taj and Robert on August 18th 2017

Thank you Ian and Elizabeth for an amazing stay. The cottage is perfect. Thank you for the amazing cake and for letting us collect the eggs with you. We hope to see you again soon.

Fabulous! by Kate & Co on July 29th 2016

Fabulous cottage, brilliantly equipped, gorgeous views, gardens and walks....So relaxing. Just what we needed! Our two children have absolutely loved it, collecting the eggs was their highlight! Cake was also delicious, thank you very much, we would love to visit again!

Absolutely first class by Gill and Phil on November 7th 2015

Gwenoldy is absolutely first class. The location is unbeatable. Waking up to glorious skies and emerging views. Weather watching is fascinating. The cottage is so well equipped and comfy. We could happily have stayed indoors all week. However, there are many historical attractions close at hand for discovering this beautiful county of Flintshire. A very relaxing holiday and one we definitely want to repeat. Thank you Elizabeth and Ian for the goodies and allowing us to stay in Gwenoldy.

Thought of Everything by Jenny and Nick on November 1st 2014

We had a great stay here. The cottage is perfect. The views are breathtaking and the owners have thought of everything. We love the special touches like the bath toys and the lemon cake! Thanks for a great holiday!

Fabulous cottage! by The P family on June 23rd 2013

Thank you for a fantastic week! Fabulous cottage with views to die for. Children had a ball playing in the garden and chasing your poor cat and chickens. Great days out at Chester Zoo, the beach at Llandudno and Park Hall Farm. Delicious food at Glasfryn in Mold and staff were very welcoming with our children (18 months and 5). Would recommend your cottage to our friends!. Thanks.

Beautiful cottage by James, Ali, Jack and Harry on April 6th 2013

We have had a lovely time in your beautiful cottage. The views are fantastic and we have never stayed in such a well equipped cottage. Our boys have loved playing football in the garden and there is so much to do in this area for young families. Thanks too for the delicious cake and wine on arrival. Most thoughtful! We hope to come back one day!

Love it by Kris on November 3rd 2012

I love it here. So glad we all got time to spend here. The boys have loved it, we've had chance to relax which is rare. Feeling relaxed and ready to take on the world! Everyone should be 'Gwenoldy'ed at least once. Let's hope we'll be back.
