“Tranquil & Romantic”
Reviewed 18 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Stayed here for the weekend with my husband.
Was pleasantly surprised it really did match all the reviews I had read before booking ;-)
It ticks every box, it's clean, spacious and has everything you need including peace.
Will definitely return!
Only one thing I will say about the actual property is that if it's dark when you go to check in then please take a torch so you can see the amenities you require to admit yourself into the property, it was dark on our arrival and very hard to see.
Obviously once in, light/lamp on and it's marvellous!
Had a bit of a drive to nice restaurants but well worth it.
Thank you for your hospitality!

Myself and my husband booked the Meysydd Derw as we were looking for something private with character, beautiful scenery, tranquillity and easy access to various other places in North Wales! We were not disappointed!

The location of the cabin is perfect, situated off the main road within its own grounds with a large private driveway and lots of outside space which was fantastic. The feeling you have walking around the grounds is that of grandeur, it was absolutely perfect. Situated to the back of the cabin is a farmers field with lots of cows and calves roaming about, this was a favourite of our time here, over to the far side is the sheep – the cabin is totally private from all angles which was fantastic!

The location provided by the owners was great, very precise. As it is off the main road it could be difficult to find, however the owner provided direction down to the mile, this was much appreciated!

The cabin was spotless, you can tell the owners really take pride in their holiday home and this showed. Everything was good, strong quality and had plenty of rustic charm. Everything had been well thought of when designing and furnishing the cabin, we were very impressed. Internal and external facilities were excellent, you couldnt ask for any more to be honest.

As soon as we walked into the cabin we instantly relaxed and absorbed into our surroundings. The bed, pillows and duvet were the comfiest we have ever experienced, you just sank into it and all your stresses from daily life just melted away! I seriously cannot fault anything with this cabin and I will most definitely be retuning for a longer stay!

On a side note, I would say that due to the location I would highly recommend purchasing the WIFI the owner has on offer. The owners are very approachable and will answer any questions or problems you may have promptly. It was lovely to deal with such nice people.

Thank you for such a beautiful holiday home.

Myself and partner required a week long isolation from the hectic occurrences of daily urban life. Having been recommended this dwelling by a friend, its charm did not disappoint.
A welcoming private drive way was well illuminated for our late night arrival to which we were very gratuitous to the owners for facilitating.
There is a resounding rustic ambience throughout the dwelling, which creates the welcoming feel, which we both found very appealing.
The garden was vast and well tended with a section around the pond left un-cut, presumably to conform with the natural ecology of the pond and surrounding area.
With sufficient facilities both internally and externally, I would certainly recommend this as a well earned relaxation period, set within wonderful Welsh countryside.

“Shabby Chic”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Ovrall good, I can understand other peoples views, but enjoyed our stay. We would find longer than 3 or 4 days to be a little uncomfortable (ie hard mattress/small bed and firm seating in lounge). It looks nice and is set out well with good decor, ample parking with a big garden for kids. Our 6 yr old boy enjoyed the trampoline, but bedroom is very girly!! owner responded to text quick when we needed to . TV is a bit in/out. Shame that the pond was drained.

Thankyou for your review, we appreciate our guests opinions and try to act on them.I will try to address your points reaised ;

1. The main double bedroom has a firm mattress which suits most people - however we have bought a "topper today to give people the choice of a softer bed. The lounge suite is a Parker knoll three piece and again has orthopedic cushioning which comes down to personal posture. We are now going to reinstate the wheels to the chairs as they are recliners that recline fully with the wheel clearance off the floor.
2. The twin room had pink bedding on during your stay,the walls are white, however we do have a neutral type bedding if requested for boys / males

3. The TV has been a problem, we have tried two freeview systems that have only partially worked and 3 weeks ago bought freesat. The freesat has been equally rubbish, so again today we have bought "Roku" internet TV. Look it up, its brilliant, its basically TV from all over the world through the WIFI. Again if you choose to have WIFI anyone can get the catchup TV app for phones and tablets which gives good choice. Also the Website called "Feed2" gets all the sports from all over the world including the premier league for free.

4. The pond has lost water for a second summer in succession, we tried to solve this but we have had a good summer in north wales and the water has dried up, we hope over time this will solve itself as the pond was only dug out 2 years ago and will eventually seal itself with algae, the water will be full again by october I suspect.

I hope this answers your points raised, thanks again.

“Beautiful, relaxing, calming..what more can you ask for..”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We absolutely loved the cabin, it was perfect for our family. It was beautiful at first sight and inside just as lovely..clean, beds made lovely, attractive bathroom and an inviting, log burning living and kitchen area. Plenty of room outside and in also.
For the price you pay for this cabin you have access to a beautiful, natural/manicured, spacious outside area where children can explore. The interior and outside log burners adds to the more natural experience than you would get such as on a caravan site or a hotel (not to mention the bbq for the not too lazy!). Everything is available to create your own cosy experience..away from busy life and with a feeling of self sufficiency.
The overall interior theme we thought was very nicely created and felt that every effort had been made to present this realitively unique cabin in a realistic way.
We viewed the comments before we booked then saw a rather unfair comment after we came home. We didn't see any oven cracked, the message on the dishwasher directed you to a minor fault on the on switch which could be turned on, no problem with the attractive sink either. If there was a couple of loose panels on the decking we're sure they could be fixed easily and we had 2 young children with us. As long as they were supervised round the back area of the decking it was no problem. Overall the kids loved it and thats what made it better for us. Without forgetting how the owners gave us friendly directions and how they obviously care. We would definately stay again!

Hi Sarah, many thanks for your kind review and leaving the place spotless after your stay ! We feel the cabin does have character and is a homely place to stay, there are probably far more palacial palces to have a holiday or break but as for having 1.2 acres to relax in with just your own family then the cabin is possibly unique. We hope to extend the main bedroom this winter and build some kind of garden shelter to barbeque in and we have just purchased "Roku internet TV" as we try to improve the cabin constantly.

We would welcome you, your husband and the children back anytime as it was lovely to have the land being enjoyed by their happy little feet.
