Liked the size of the communal areas and the use of the pool and hot tub. We were away for my father in laws 60th birthday and it was a great space for us all to get together as we have ages from 1 to 80!

A lovely property, we had everything we could have wanted. The owners were great, very helpful and friendly.

The location of Brookside Manor is absolutely fantastic. Beautiful views of the castle and near to the small town of Chirk which is very pretty.
Miss Rees

We loved the size of the property so that 24 of us could enjoy family time together. The pool was a great success with the children and adults enjoyed the hot tub and sports facilities. The view from the front garden across to Chirk castle is stunning. Given it was the end of October, we were very lucky with the weather; Autumn colours in the sunshine were amazing!

There was lots to do at the house, it was a very relaxed environment for all ages.

We were a party with a wide age range and can honestly say we all had a terrific time as there was something for everyone. The hot tub was a particular favourite and the gardens and views were just lovely. There was plenty to see and do in the area and we especially enjoyed the castle at Chirk which was just over the valley.

This was amazing; everything you could possibly need. Views were amazing. Owners couldn't be more helpful. Couldn't have asked for more will definitely book again in the future . Best house we have ever stayed in. Once again this was amazing!

The house offered great space for large family gatherings. The views were awesome and the local walks provided something for all abilities. The kitchen was well stocked and the drawing room has the most comfortable sofas ever! We used the conservatory a lot in the evenings. We used the BBQ twice and we loved the outside space. The house is bright and airy and great for hide and seek! The setting in Bronygarth is truly amazing and we were 5 minutes from Chirk Castle and the Aquaduct. The Poachers is a must do pub for eating food out.

The amount of usable space for a family gathering. Plenty off room to all be together or have time on your own. The children, both 2, loved the space to play and it was child friendly.
Mr Trudgill

The owner was very friendly and accommodating, the house had a fantastic charm to it. Plenty of space for large groups. Lovely hot tub and fantastic views. The in house library was a massive plus with a huge choice of adults and children's books, games, dvds and comfy leather seats. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and the en suites were to a good standard. Jacuzzi bath was especially ornate looking. The men in the group especially liked the full size snooker table and barely left the room.

We have been renting large properties between 8 families for 15 years now, and Brookside Manor has been by far the best place we have stayed at. The facilities including the Pool, Hot tub and tennis courts were used by old and young alike. The house catered for our large group with ease, and is comfortable and homely. We will definitely be coming back sometime soon.
Mr Dennis

The house and facilities are absolutely amazing. We basically didn't leave the house because there was so much to do. The owners were very helpful whenever we had any issues and sorted everything out very quickly.
Mrs Ingle

An excellent property for our large group, the facilities (hot tub, swimming pool, snooker table) were great and meant we didn't even leave the property for the first 48hours. There was plenty of space and it was great to have so many family rooms.

Amazing trip house is a bit tired in places but so beautiful we had a ball. There is plenty of space to breathe and loads to do.

Nice property... Amenities a bit tired but fine. Dont forget anything... Would be more than 2* but the managing agents never get back to you and stuff never returned (left a torque wrench). Will update if changes.

Property was fantastic for a big group. Lots of space, rooms big enough for families and facilities endless. Owners couldn't do enough for us and made the stay even more enjoyable. Have stayed in many big houses and this is one of the best.

Super location, wonderful space for a large group. Owners on hand and helpful. Wood burners were a real hit as we visited in December.

A lovely house set in a lovely location!
Mr Porter

We enjoyed having lots of space to spread out in, different rooms to sit in. The dining space was ideal for a large group. Having a wood-burning stove made the conservatory very cosy, and when the sun came out we enjoyed sitting in the garden. The rooms were very comfortable, the kitchen was well-equipped.

I holidayed here as part of a group of friends and found the house perfect for our needs. There are plenty of downstairs rooms to spread out into so some could watch tv , others play cards and others just sit and chat. The hot tub and pool were in great demand and we enjoyed the BBQ and outdoor area when the sun shone.

What a brilliant place to stay at! The rooms were spacious and the children and young adults had a great time with the facilities. Very nice hosts too. We enjoyed everything the place had to offer even the Bronygarth Village Party with Yurts were great fun too.

What a brilliant place to stay at! The rooms were spacious and the children and young adults had a great time with the facilities for over 40 people. Very nice hosts too. Beautiful area to see Manor House is an excellent base.

We rented this house as a family for the October 2015 half term. The specification on paper looked very impressive and we were all really looking forward to our stay. The house has so much potential but very little of that potential has been realised. Where do I begin??? There were so many things that were broken or not working, I'll list them below... The House - The house is really big and has bucket loads of potential. However there were so many problems with it. The whole house was generally very tatty and needs a major refurbishment. The fridge was leaking water onto the floor, one of the toilets was leaking from the cistern onto the floor. There were several nail heads sticking out of the wooden floors that the children were catching their feet on, thankfully it only tore their socks and not their skin (I hammered in the ones we found, but I'd rather save my diy skills for my own house!). Only the most basic channels were working on the Sky box. One of the showers was not working. The running machine was broken and the gym generally was not up to much. Many of the lightbulbs were blown and not replaced. The cot supplied is only a travel cot and is not supplied with sheets (thankfully my wife had brought some spare ones). Outside - The decking areas were covered in green moss/algae. All the paving areas could do with a pressure wash. Part of the external render was missing and had been covered up with tarpaulin. The Swimming Pool - The water looked cloudy and was very cold. The building that housed it was on its last legs, the doors and windows wouldn't close properly and the pool liner was coming away in quite a few places. The Sauna - This only had one of its elements working so would not reach a suitable temp. There was no water bucket or ladle to put water on the stones. It was generally unclean and the toilet just outside overflowed onto the floor if flushed twice in a row. In summary, this could be an amazing place to stay but it needs a lot of work doing to get to that place. There are some great things to do nearby, Chirk Castle is well worth a visit and caters for all ages. There is an aqueduct nearby and plenty of lovely walks to go on, it really is a beautiful area.

Booked this place a year in advance to ensure somewhere to hold my 60th birthday celebrations. Fantastic setting, enough rooms to satisfy everyone, albeit many are family rooms. The kitchen is large and most times this is where you found everyone. Some of the appliances need a good service, but we worked around this by utilising the various ovens. Bedrooms are warm and bright, however, some of the heating needs an overhaul, but electric oil heaters were provided to supplement the heating. The pool is just right for kids, the hot tub is a must, remember to take plenty of beer and wine...! Overall a great week was had by all of the family, the price should not be a factor to not stay here. The setting and view to Chirk Castle is second to none. It needs a lick of paint outside and some of the downspouts need looking at, but this only adds to the charm. Would stay here again, aye my 70th...

We booked this amazing property for all our family and friends to be together for the New Year, we certainly wasn't disappointed, fantastic sized rooms for entertaining and of course the odd party or two!!! The conservatory with log burner (also known as the man cave) was a godsend occupied the men all week. We were greeted by Simon on arrival and a fantastic Christmas tree in the entrance we really did feel like Lord and ladies of the Manor. Simon gave us a guided tour of the property, a notice board contained any contact details for any issues not that we had any on our stay, and a welcome pack. We were then left to unpack and enjoy our hols. We had a mixed group of family and friends with children ranging from age 3 to 24 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves the snooker room, swimming pool and hot tub (personally my favourite) were fantastic. The kitchen facilities and equipment were the more than adequate we cooked a 3 course dinner News Years day for 28 and had enough pots, pans, plates etc....... I would like to thank Simon & Jeanette for a wonderful week away and can't wait to book again. All the best Nic & Joe

We stayed here over August and there was plenty to keep people entertained, with a snooker table and pool. Somewhat quirky decor in places. The pool is shared with other guests in the cabins. The gym could do with some tlc as it felt a bit run down. I agree with some of the other comments about getting some catering sized pans as when feeding 26 it could be tricky. All in all, it suited our large group.

The manor house certainly has the 'wow-factor' when you first walk in. The place was very clean and well presented and all of the bedrooms were very inviting. The tennis court, pool, games room, and the swing set were all utilized to the full! We did find the kitchen a little lacking in terms of utensils and the three cookers were all different and had their own quirks, which occasionally caused problems. We were catering for up to 30 people per meal, and to be fair we coped! We had a few problems e.g. toaster broke and dishwasher broke. Both were replaced with new devices extremely quickly! The service from our hosts was peerless. The house and pool had areas which could use a bit of refurbishment/maintenance, but there wasn't anything that could spoil our week! Many thanks.

Had an excellent stay with friends/family for a special birthday, plenty for the 11 children to do with swimming, tennis courts and huge gardens for them to run around in. BBQ and log fires were a hit with the adults for late nights. Simon & Jeanette (the owners) were on hand for anything we needed and were attentive in getting tv repaired the same day we reported an issue.

Very spacious there was 23 of us and it was plenty big enough. The facilities re very good, owners very helpful the local area stunning. Chirk castle well worth a visit, stunning gardens. The poachers a marstons pub a mile or so on the canal great value for money. Would have happily given a 5 if the lovely kitchen had a larger oven. I would go back.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

This is the 15th year our group of 8 families have rental large properties for a long weekend and Brookside Manor was by far the best one yet. The Pool, Hot Tub and tennis courts were used by the young members and the old alike. We held an "Olympic Games" tournament in the pool area which the adults enjoyed as much as the kids. The communal areas, bedrooms and kitchen were perfect for such a large group as ourselves and the conservatory complete with woodburner was a favourite "chill out" space. Thank you to Simon and Jeanette for letting us use their beautiful house and hopefully we will visit again in the near future.

Our party of 12, was made up of 12adults, I, 7 year old, 2 toddlers,& 1.babe in arms. This house provides all your needs, to include bedding and towels. Plus it has a wonderful atmosphere. The swimming pool although shared was a great success.We ate out for Sunday lunch at The Boat, Erbistock,highly recommended.We had another meal cooked & serves in house by local caterer Mrs. Hazel Hall, I can really recommend this treat, well worth the money.During our stay we visited, The Llangollen Steam Railway & the horse drawn barge on the canal.Stan`s supermarket just a 10 minute drive has everything..

I stayed here with 15 family members and friends with PLENTY of space. We were all amazed by the fabulous house and the fantastic location. Every guest was more than happy with their fabulous bedrooms and living space. The hot tub was just divine and piping hot with a spectacular view. The house is so big that at one point we actually thought we had lost our 'lady with a baby' group member, however she was hidden in bubbles in the jacuzzi corner bath reading her book! Everything you could possibly need is provided. We had such a wonderful time. I can not recommend the house highly enough to big groups - You wil LOVE it!!

This is the perfect house for a large group of any age, (in our case 1 to 87!). The accommodation was beautiful and the on site leisure facilities (swimming pool, tennis court, squash court, hot tub - we used them all) meant that there was plenty to keep everyone busy. The snooker tournament also went down a storm! Plenty of outdoor space for the children to play and a lovely conservatory for those who just wanted to read. The surrounding area is beautiful with great views from the hot tub! The walk to Chirk Castle was easy and Llangollen is a 20 min drive away (Thomas the Tank Engine was actually there!!! Kids were delighted). We self catered for some of the week but would recommend the "Poachers"- good food and quite reasonable. The owners also left the numbers of pizza / takeaway delivery places if you don't fancy cooking at all. Asda also deliver - very handy for stocking the beer fridge, also very handy, in snooker room. Good value for money if you have a large enough group and even the journey home didn't take that long! All in all, a great place for a "staycation".

This is a huge house 10 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms with a hot tub. Went there for a weekend with 13 members of my family and some friends to celebrate 2 birthdays. Spotless house, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms. The owners Simon and Jeanette were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful setting the house has everything you could need. Large rooms and lots of space for a large gathering.

We came here as a group of 15 ladies to celebrate a couple of birthdays. It was easy to find and the house is just as lovely as the pictures show it to be. The house is very big but warm and inviting, with nice comfortable beds and lots of bathrooms to choose from. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. There was an annual village party held on the lawn during our stay which we attended; we were made to feel very welcome and had a really great evening. I would highly recommend for large groups of family and friends and we are already looking at re-booking for next year.
