“Beautiful spacious cottage”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in the 2 bed cottage. It was imaculately clean and had everything you could possibly need in the kitchen like tea, milk, washing up liquid, tin foil, which was really helpful and a nice touch. All the rooms were really spacious. Quiet location. Lovely hosts. Had a lovely weekend. Can't fault it at all.

“Peace and quiet / Perfect for large groups/Chester Races”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a beautiful place!! Beautiful setting and wonderful clean lodge!

A group of 10 of us stayed for a weekend break at the lodge as we were attending Chester Race Course on the Saturday. When we arrived we were so impressed with the view that we had, the fact that there was no-one around us was wonderful and the lodge was gorgeous! Beautifully decorated, 5 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms and a bedroom with an en-suite there was plenty of room for 10 adults! Beautiful decking area, play area for the kids (or adults haha!) BBQ area and room for 5 cars! just a shame that the weather didn't match up to the beautiful surroundings!

We drove to Chester on the Saturday and left our cars there overnight as we had been completely unorganised and not pre-booke taxi's, I would highly recommend pre-booking taxi's well in advance as it was about 16 miles away and with a group of 10 this became quiet a task! The taxi home was about £31 but between 5 of us that was quiet reasonable!

If you are someone who cant live without internet access/ wifi/ phone signal then be prepared to have none! hahaha! this was a bit unsettling at first as I think we all felt like we had lost our right arms but realistically it was wonderful to actually speak and communicate with my friends instead of us all having our heads buried in our phones or communicating through facebook when we were sat right next to each other!

We did get a bit lost trying to find the lodges as we thought we were on a private road headed to no-where but if you trust your sat nav and keep following it you will find it no problem!

Angela and Brian seem like lovely people too, they couldn't have been more helpful and provided us with all the information we needed and made it clear that they were on hand if we needed anything further!

All in all we had an AMAZING stay at these lodges and before we even left we were planning our visit next year!! would highly recommend to anyone!

“Great place for a large group/Chester Races”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here for the weekend as a base for a trip to Chester Races. There were 10 of us and so our accommodation options were somewhat limited, but I have to say this was an excellent location regardless.

The lodge has 5 bedrooms, 2 bath rooms and 2 kitchens, so it's ideal for large groups: we were able to split the cooking and washing up across the two kitchens and 2 bathrooms were a must with 10 people!!

There's plenty of room for 5 cars to park, and - good size of grounds - there's a BBQ, but unfortunately the July 'summer' weather precluded us from enjoying this!

The beds were really comfy, as were the sofas. There's a big dining table that seated all 10 of us, so we could enjoy a breakfast of kings

Accommodation was lovely and clean, with all the kitchen utensils and pots that we needed to cook dinner and breakfast.

The only downside is that there is literally NO internet or mobile signal, and no WIFi...so we had to talk to each other instead! Joking aside, in the interests of conversation, a lack of Internet could be considered a good thing, but in the event of an emergency it's not a good thing, so bear this in mind.

Our stay was for a trip to Chester Races. It's a half hour drive away, so bear this in mind, and we struggled to get a taxi so had to drive into Chester. However a taxi back was only £31, so between 5 of us that wasn't too bad.

Overall, well recommended. We are going to book to go again next year, so that probably tells you all you need to know!!

“Great base for outdoor adventures”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Have just returned from an excellent long weekend in Hillfort Lodge which we used as a base for riding the mountain bike trails at Coed Llandegla.

Brian and Angela were extremely helpful and accommodating in arranging the stay, getting back to us via email and text almost immediately every time. Upon arrival Angela showed us round, explaining how everything worked and where everything was. After a long journey the tea, coffee, milk and sugar provided was much appreciated! The lodge was spotlessly clean and much bigger than we expected.

Coed Llandegla is only 10 minutes away by car, which is what attracted us in the first place and after hours of dragging ourselves round the trails the hot showers and clean towels at the lodge were appreciated by all. Using the excuse of mountain biking to get friends from around the country in one place it was really good to be able to get everyone round the large dining table for a sit down meal for the first time in many years.

The beds and bedding were, like everything else in the lodge, all comfortable and clean and were well needed at the end of each day for those of us who were a little out of practice on the bikes.

Although phone/internet reception was a little hit and miss (as expected with the lodge being quite remote) it wasn't missed at all as we watched biking DVDs on the lodge's DVD player and explored the games cupboard. Two grown men spent 4 hours completing a jigsaw which at least kept them quiet and out of trouble.

The next time we ride at Coed Llandegla we won't hesitate to contact Brian and Angela to stay again, and in fact those of us with families have put it on the list to come back with the children and extended families to make us of the Play Park and generous outdoor space.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

stayed at Rhydtalog for two nights between Christmas and New Year and what a brilliant time we had. We were a family of ten, five adults and five children age range 3 to 66 years. The lodge is immaculate, lots of room for us all and beautifully decorated.
Brian and Angela were there to welcome us and give us the necessary information about everything.
Everything was there for a self catering break and they even provided a starter pack of tea, coffee, sugar and milk plus some cleaning materials which were very welcome.
Lots of towels and nice linen provided with very comfortable beds. The central heating was very efficient and there was a log burner which made it very cosy at night, in fact we didn't need the heating at night as the log burner was enough.
All the family enjoyed their stay and would recommend it to anyone. We were there during the Christmas period and the lodge was beautifully decorated for Christmas which the children were thrilled about (as were the adults)!
Plenty of space outside and lots of games and dvd's.
