Liyn Clwyd provides the perfect base from which to enjoy the delights of North Wales. This lovely holiday cottage is located in a beautiful setting and is very comfortable, clean and extremely well equipped. The grounds in which the cottage is set are nothing short if idyllic, with mountain views and a private lake. The owners are extremely welcoming, ensuring... More

Walking Offa's Dyke stayed 1 night in adjacent cottage. Unlike other B & Bs we were not welcomed with tea or coffee on arrival. Cottage comfortable but would have benefitted from a good dusting and hoovering! No en suite - had to share bathroom with other couple. Breakfast excellent and enjoyed good evening meal in a local pub. Location is... More

May I suggest you have made a mistake on the property you stayed at on your trip, to suggest you were required to stare a cottage and a bathroom is ridiculous , plus we always serve tea and cake !!! More

B and B, set in amazing countryside, was very helpful and flexible. they had a field for our horses, and provided a hose to wash them down. Meals were at times we all agreed, and the food was excellent. Being a vegetarian, they happily catered for this, and even provided a lunch for us on our trail ride back. The... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this friendly, flexible and accommodating superb B & B. There was a most welcome cup of tea and proper coffee waiting for us literally as soon as we came in, after a hard days ride. On arrival our horses were provided area's to untack and we had a hose to cool and wash them down. The field... More

I stayed this weekend with the equine ramblers UK. The party of 7 including our horses arrived to a very warm welcome with cups of tea and cake! The accommodation for horse and rider was more than we could ask for. The rooms were very clean and comfy. The food was generous and yummy! The hospitality was spot on. Thank... More

We stayed a night while walking Offa's dyke path. Although not on the path Linda and Hugh picked us up after our walk, they dropped us off at the pub for a meal, and dropped us off for the start of our walk next day. When we arrived it was tea or a beer and a cake. On top of... More

Stayed here on Offa's Dyke Trail. Owners could not have been more friendly, tea and cake on arrival, lift to a cash machine and pub for dinner and back again. Very clean room and they were happy for us to make tea and take up to our room. Great breakfast then lift back up to the trail. Couldn't have asked... More

Touring the length of Offa's Dyke trail, we chanced upon this jewel in tiny Bodfari. Our two-night stay at Glan Clwyd Isa was, hands down, our favorite two nights of the two weeks we were there. Hugh, our host, could not have been more charming and accommodating, and the setting was absolutely gorgeous (Hugh mentioned that he'd had a career... More

Stayed for a night with my brother and my dog as part of the Offa's Dyke trail. Owners could not have been more helpful or friendly. Breakfast was generous and a perfect start to the day. Wonderful accommodation (spotless and extremely high standard) set in a picture postcard location. Visit if you can

1 star for friendliness, 1 star for an excellent breakfast. No stars for no signage to the place, not even the house name on the gate or the house. Wandered thru the house twice calling out before they finally heard me - out back drinking. Offered me a G & T (nice but unusual). No key for the room. Cramped... More

Well I could not resist responding, Many thanks for the 2 stars given for breakfast and friendliness... I’m sorry the rest was a disappointment, including the location which seems strange To put things in to context you arrived from your walk at 8.30pm at night by car looking very fetching in your kilt, while we were enjoying the summer evening...
