“The nicest thatched cottage you will ever stay in!”
Reviewed March 20, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We booked Ty Celyn for a family/ girlie 'hen' weekend. Have just come back and everyone has not stopped talking about Holly House! What an absolutely fantastic place to stay. It was not far from Chester and 'Go Ape' which was our activity for the weekend. Mum enjoyed cooking a sunday lunch on the Aga oven. We felt so relaxed as there was plenty of space and areas to chill. The under floor heated conservatory with stunning views of the sea and county and a gorgeous fireplace.
Paula was fab from start to finish as we changed our minds quite abit! What a place to clean though, it took 12 of us to get it looking back to as it was.. gleaming! Best weekend from start to finish!! Thank you- would recommend to anyone.

“Great place to stay with a big family, had a lovely peaceful Christmas.”
Reviewed January 15, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Spent Christmas in this lovely corttage and celebrated our daughter's 21st On Christmas Day. My sons made good use of the pool table and visited the village pub at lunchtime on Christmas Day, which they said they would like to visit again. Took a trip to the beach which is not far away. The cottage is very quiet so nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of life down south. I was pleased my son took over the cooking though as not familiar with an Aga oven, but he is, so cooked to perfection. Would liked to have stayed a little longer but family had to return to catch up with relatives. Thank you to Paula and David who made us very welcome.

Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This property is truly amazing and words can not do it justice, it simply needs to be seen to be appreciated. We had a fantastic and memorable weekend at Holly House. Paula was brilliant, very quick to respond to emails and made us all feel welcome. If you are looking for a get away with amazing views, beautiful countryside and a house of excellent interior and exterior quality, then this is the place for you.
