“Friendly and helpful owners - lovely old building with great views and quiet location.”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a wonderful week in this property with an extended family group of 30 members! This included people from their mid-seventies to five months. When there was a "bad appliance day" the owner came and replaced the toaster and dishwasher immediately!
The setting is tranquil and stunning - plenty of parking and the freedom that space gives. We enjoyed the pool, sauna, hot tub and tennis court as well as the front lawn with children's swings and picnic tables and the brick built BBQ and well furnished patio. At times we had a problem with a lot of flies around the hot tub - but it was a prolonged hot summer. The pool was occasionally cloudy looking and we felt a little concerned for it's cleanliness but that may have been base-less. The facilities were shared with the occupants of the log cabins but this didn't cause us too much inconvenience.
The property was well furnished although a few of the members complained of uncomfortable beds - mattress toppers could help here. Also if you are going to be catering for 30 people you may want to bring some catering size saucepans a large mixing bowl and electric mixer. (although if you asked for one the owner would probably get one to you within half an hour!)
The property is beautiful and old - in the middle of nowhere but 5 minute drive away from the local shop - we had a very good stay and would totally recommend it to a friend.

“Great for big groups, excellent location”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed with a group of friends (15 adults and 6 children). Had a great time. We intended to book for a long weekend but ended up booking for a whole week as the price was no different. This was good as it gave people flexibility on when they arrived and left. We all felt that the price was very reasonable.

Facilities were great and the hot tub and pool were particularly popular along with the snooker room.

There was a good choice of things to do locally including Chirk Castle, Llangollen Steam Railway and walks along the canal and aqueducts.

If you intend to cook for the whole group I would recommend taking a large crock pot type pan. I also took my filter coffee machine and food processor both of which made catering a bit easier.

I would definitely return and would recommend it for large group holidays.

“Perfect weekend break for a large group of friends!!”

Just left Brookside Manor House after spending the weekend with 30 family and friends! The house is totally amazing so beautiful massive rooms with the added bonus of hot tub, pool, gym and games room! The place has such a homely feel and even being at full capacity there was still loads of room and we wasn't under each other's feet. It was for my 40th birthday and we all dressed in 70's fancy dress Saturday night such a scream! Would highly recommend this to anyone. The owner met us there he was a lovely guy who showed us round then left us to enjoy our break although if you needed him he was around or just a phone call away. Lots to do for kids as we'll a wii, library and games plus swings outside which for us was great because the weather was lovely. We have already decided we will be going back next year!!! Perfect weekend getaway.

“Most amazing house for friends getaway”

We recently went to Brookside Manor to celebrate a friends birthday. There were 6 family's and each family had their own spacious family room with a double bed and two singles. There was a family room that wasn't even used and two single bedrooms so plenty of space! The house itself was beautiful and had so many rooms for the kids to play in! The adults set up camp in the conservatory and there was plenty of space for all 12 of us to sit comfortably and it had a lovely log burner in the middle which kept us warm. The kitchen was a great size and the table in their easily sat all 12 children so we were able to keep the dining room clear for our celebrations and once again all 12 adults fitted comfortably in there.
The hot tub was lovely with a great view and the pool satisfied the kids need to swim and play around.
All in all it was a fantastic weekend and I cannot recommend this place highly enough for a family/friends gathering. We are already planning on when we can go back!

“Fabulous House”
Reviewed January 28, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed a large group of several families (12 adults and 12 children).
The house was more than big enough for us all and we never got under each others feet. The snooker room was a hit with the men and the pool a hit with the kids. Us ladies loved the hot tub. The rooms are all spacious and 4 have en suites with an additional 3 bathrooms.
Can not rate this highly enough.
The house is in need of a little TLC which actually makes you feel more at home and comfortable. If I was nit picking...the kitchen could do with upgrading now as the cooker has seen better days etc but this did not affect our stay.
We had caterers in on the Saturday night (Hazel Hall Catering) who were outstanding and extremely professional. The food was amazing and they provided an excellent, professional service.
The owner was extremely good when we owned up to a breakage.

For info, take some logs (fire stuff etc if you can) in the cold weathers as you'll want the fires lit.

There wasn't a great deal of basics there (ie; Salt and pepper etc) so you will need to supply. We had an ASDA delivery delivered to the property which worked out well.
Plenty of towels are supplied.

Wifi is a bit hit and miss....we couldnt find the docking station.

Can be a little tricky to find so read the route instructions carefully.

We would definitely go back as just had so much fun there.
