We stayed here with my Mother In Law in between Christmas and over the New Year.
The cottage was decorated with a few Christmas decorations and a Christmas tree, which was thoughtful. The owner had also left some milk, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits etc.. for us. The owners are very friendly and are on hand if you need them, but leave you to enjoy your holiday in private.
The heating is by electric, though not storage heaters as described, so can be switched on and off as required.
The beds were very comfortable and supportive with new good quality mattresses. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils for preparing and cooking home cooked food.
We would have preferred a walk in shower instead of a shower over a bath, can't please everyone though. The water pressure is not brilliant, but I think water maybe from a private supply, so maybe reason.
The room my mother in law slept in also had a double bed, but no bedside tables, so she had to cobble together a table with a tray for water etc..
It was very useful to have another TV and sofa in the dining room as a group of people do not always want to watch the same thing.
The location was lovely and peaceful. Towards the end of the week some ewes and lambs arrived in the field behind and were entertaining to watch.
The sitting room with wood burner made it a very cosy cottage in the winter, but I can imagine that it would also be lovely in the summer months with the small garden and outdoor furniture. There were French windows leading from the sitting room to the garden.
The property can be difficult to find as down a track, later in the week, I made the mistake of driving down the wrong track and had to reverse back up as there was a gate at the bottom and no where to turn round. My advice would be, before driving down any track, to check that there is a sign for Castle View on the right hand side. We took two cars and although there are two parking spaces, space was a bit tight for manoeuvring. It can be done though, with a bit of patience
Supermarkets are just a few minutes drive in Denbigh, Morrison's, Lidl and Co-Op at present, although I think Aldi is coming in Autumn 17. We did miss a pub within walking distance, not sure if what used to be a pub in the village, a mile or so away is open or not? There was no mention of it in the paperwork in the cottage.
However there is a lovely coffee shop attached to The Lodge, in the village, a high end ladies fashion shop. They also do light lunches as well.
In all would highly recommend.
