“Fantastic glamping experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We stayed at Pentre Mawr at the end of July and enjoyed a one night stay. Very high standard of accommodation and the attention to detail was fantastic. Highly recommend a stay here and we will be returning!

We had a business trip over the weekend and stayed for 3 nights. Originally we were booked into the main house but owing to a booking glitch we were moved to one of the cottages. The cottage came with a private garden jacuzzi which was a pleasant bonus. Instead of hotel rooms we had a private self catering apartment with top quality lounge and a huge bathroom.

The breakfasts were very good and included Buck's Fizz! We didn't take dinner at the hotel, though it did look very nice (£35 per head).

There is also a small outside pool and jacuzzi in the main hotel.

The hotel is about 20 minutes from the main A55 at St Asaph so is ideal for visits to North Wales.

Just stayed there and was most impressed with the overall standard and attention from the very proficient and charming owners. We arrived late after a really torrid day and drive up the M6 to be met with a real smile, calming bucks fizz and our bags taken up to the room. We had called earlier to explain our lateness and they obliged by saying we will prepare a ‘platter’ for you to have in your room. Well platter turned out to be three platters containing a fantastic selection of Cjicken, smoked meats, cheeses, salad items, pates, quiches, asparagus, shellfish, salmon three presented desserts, breads, a nice bottle of sauvignon and even a big jug of iced water all laid out for us to just sit and calm down. I have stayed in many a hotel and to be honest this was the best in room meal in 30 years of traveling.

The overall place is fantastically dressed, the linen spot on and the rooms super. This is no guest house. It’s a country house experience with a good restaurant side and real charm. I can’t actually think of a negative. I liked the hosts and the place so much we will return with friends and use this as a base. A last comment this is a place you really need to visit to see how something so different can really be amazing

Booked a spontaneous night at Pentre Mawr for myself and a friend and what a jewel we uncovered.
I suppose many people read these reviews to see the good and bad points that people raise about places they stay in, well let me reassure you that this place has no negatives.
The experience begins when you are transported from the carpark to the front entrance by golf cart and then escorted to one of the sumptuous lounges to enjoy a glass of Buck's Fizz while your luggage is carried to your roomy of are left in the company of either Darcy or Morris, the charming house dog and cat till you are taken to your room.
The proprietors are extremely polite, helpful and are only interested in making your stay as pleasant as possible. Our room was spacious and elegant with all the facilities you could wish for and the bathroom with it's jacuzzi bath was sheer bliss.
Try to arrive hungry if you can as you will not want to miss out on your evening meal, I can honestly say that I have rarely enjoyed my meal so much, not only that but you are not made to hurry in anyway, just sit back and enjoy what is delivered to your table!
My only regret is that we only stayed the one night but I fully intend to return in winter to enjoy one of the safari tents with private outdoor hot tub.
I look forward to the day that I return to Pentre Mawr.

Room Tip: Depends if you want a hot tub or not.

What a fantastic place. Stayed there last weekend and felt like I was there a week. We stayed in one of two hot tub suites and were a short walk away from the hotel in an area of calm and tranquility. We had total privacy and weren't overlooked at all. On the first night we had a number of platters sent to the room, the food was amazing with a lovely chilled bottle of wine to enjoy in the hot tub. Breakfast was very relaxed on the second day and we ventured out on our motorbike; there was a covered area for the bike to go at the house. The afternoon was spent by the small pool - small but lovely and warm. We ate in the restaurant that evening and the food was fantastic.

If you want a place to get away from it all and be truely spoilt - nothing is too much trouble - I couldnt recommend anywhere else. We will definitely be back!!!

We felt very pampered from start to finish.
food was fantastic and rooms clean and really big-especially the bath! :-)
Animals are really friendly- especially frank the baby owl!
A lovely place for a relaxing break- we will definitely be returning!

My wife and I have just spent one of the best weekends of our lives at Pentre Mawr Country House. We were met with a glass off bucks fizz coffe and homemade cake before being shown to the accomodation.Graham and Bre were amazing hosts and we would like to thank the friendly staff and also the facilities were second to none.
We had our first taste of Glamping and we want more!!!!!!!!!!!!! The cuisine was first class both in the evening and at breakfast were I enjoyed some beautiful kippers.
The guests were really friendly and some had come as far as the Sussex coast with their dog.

We would highly recommend that if you were thinking of a lovely break this would be a place you NEED to explore.

Alan and Emma Hodgson

Room Tip: All excellent

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Set in an area of designated natural beauty in the foothills of the Clwydian hills Pentre Mawr Country House has a lovely romantic feel to it...set as it is in nearly 200 acres of meadows, park and woodland. There are all the little extras that you would expect in a fine country house at Pentre but it is run on a much softer line. Meals are served either in the Oak room or the formal dining room but with none of the stuffiness. We are delighted to announce that we have received 5 Stars and a dining award from the AA There are two lovely sitting rooms all with comfy sofas and portraits of Graham's ancestors. The hidden walled garden is a lovely place to sit and read or just relax and smell the roses.We are more than happy to welcome guest dogs as we have two collies and two cats of our own here. ... more   less
