We can't fault anything about our holiday. It was excellent accommodation in beautiful surroundings, and the hosts made us so welcome and were approachable, will definitely be back.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and everything was perfect, even the rain could not put a dampener on our holiday. The apartment was spotless, fully equipped and finished to a high standard. The apartment was light and airy, and surprisingly spacious. The kitchen was great if you enjoy cooking and easy to use and keep clean. The bed was amazing and huge! It was so comfy and we both slept very well. The views were beautiful, we will miss waking up every morning and watching the grazing sheep. The location of the apartment is also perfect; quiet and isolated but close enough to towns and the coast. A perfect holiday and looking forward to returning.

An excellent cottage only matched by the owners friendly and welcoming attitude. Wanted for nothing within the cottage which made the holiday run very smoothly. We will most certainly be using again in the future. Although the cottage was excellent it was also the owners appreciation of the 'little touches' that made the stay so much pleasurable. 12 out of 10 for us.

The apartment is lovely, immaculately clean with everything you could wish for provided. The owners were friendly and made me feel very welcome. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

A beautiful first floor apartment over the owners' detached garage. It was modern and tastefully decorated with all mod cons, including a decent WiFi connection. It had everything I needed. My only regret was that it wasn't quite cold enough to put the wood burner on, having said that, they also have a great eco-heating system with a special button that gives you a 40 minute boost - perfect when summer's not convinced by itself. The owners are very lovely and let you get on with your stay. It is set in beautiful countryside. All in all, a total gem of a place.

Very friendly, helpful owners. The property was lovely, clean and very comfortable. We would love to visit again next year.

The apartment was excellent for 2 people in a lovely area with plenty to see and do, and a pleasure to return to and relax in after a day out. We had a week of good weather and enjoyed the early evening sun on the private patio. The pub nearby was very friendly with plenty of good ales. Friendly and helpful owners who have obviously put a lot of effort into making this property a very high standard. Would definitely recommend.
Mr Dolan

The apartment is wonderfully modern, elegant, and had everything we needed. The apartment is an excellent base for exploring the region, but also a nice place to relax on a rainy day. We enjoyed exploring Halkyn and its surroundings in North Wales.

The best rental property I have ever stayed in, in the last 20 years, and I rent four times a year. A true credit to the owners who are welcoming. 10/10. 5 star.

The lovely part of Wales that we went to stay and it was nice to come back to an apartment that was such a pleasure to stay in. We had a really good time and would like to come back here perhaps next year.

Ms Lynes

Fantastic accommodation in a great location. Loved the wood burning stove! The whole place passed, it is at least as good as home test, with flying colours! Really helpful but unobtrusive owners. Ideal, quiet getaway that has easy access to plenty of attractions - walks, seaside, historic houses etc and good local pub within 10 minute walk. Perfect!
Mrs Young

The property was lovely, a real 'home from home' with everything we required. Nice and neutral with comfortable living area. Good night sleep in the the super kingsize bed. The location was lovely too with nice views from the property. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

We liked the very friendly and amiable people all over the country, and the very warm welcome we received from the owners. The heating regulator was very good!
Mr Gardner

We had a great time, not too far from Chester, Liverpool, Landudno or Snowdonia. Literally just off the A55, easy to get to the property. Very good quality, looked like new. The owner was great too.

After much deliberation and trawling of the internet we found this accommodation as it looked perfect for myself and my wife and our 18 month old daughter. On arrival we were not disappointed. The owners had put out a bottle of wine and chocolates for our arrival. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and very modern. Everything needed is provided. Although you have to climb some steps to the front door its all very safe and worked perfectly with our daughter. We had a great week away and will return in the future. Very impressed !!

This was exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful location. Magnificent facilities. Friendly hosts. The surrounding countryside was stunning (and we loved the sheep).

We regularly stay in this part of North Wales to visit family, but have struggled to find high quality and well equipped accommodation at a fair price. But having just spent a weekend at Tyn-Y-Mynydd Bach, we were really impressed!! Its a recently built light and airy flat above a garage block; an eco-friendly design with high levels of insulation and low energy lighting, with excellent views across open fields. An ideal base for a romantic weekend away, or as a base for exploring the local area on foot. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and there's a wood burning stove in the living room to supplement the LPG central heating system. You don't get a welcome hamper and its quite a distance from local shops, so remember to bring provisions with you. The only slight problem was when the LPG gas cylinder ran out the night before we left and they had no spare, so no heating / hot water. The owners (a very friendly family) were extremely apologetic and offered us heaters and a bottle of wine to compensate. Fortunately, with the fantastic wood burning stove combined with electric shower in the morning, we were just fine. And after that experience, I've no doubt they'll have spare LPG cylinders available in the future. Overall, a really enjoyable weekend in luxurious accommodation and we would definitely stay there again!!

What a beautiful time we had. The cottage was superb and its rural setting was brilliant. We are Australians and have been traveling through Europe for the last 4 months. This cottage and its setting was by far the nicest accommodation we have stayed in on our entire trip. Thanks to the owners.

Decided to book a last minute weekend break, and found the cottage on the internet. When we arrived it was just as we expected a beautiful cottage in a quiet location. Would reccomend this cottage and area for a quiet holiday, and a walk to the local pub highly reccomended.

This is such a perfect place to stay. I have worked up in nearby Mold a few times, and choose always to stay here if it is available. The property is warm, bright, beautifully clean and very well equipped, with dishwasher, washing machine tumble dryer and log burning stove. Having also stayed here in the winter months, i can safely say that it is brilliantly designed to stay warm. The Log burner and eco-heating button are all you need for a cosy romantic night in. The bed is superb - very large and comfortable. Combined with the blackout blinds, it makes for a brilliant night's sleep. Also, it is an added bonus that the sofa is also a very comfortable sofa-bed if you need it.The family who run the cottage are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. There are always plenty of logs for the fire! The local pub (The Blue Bell Inn) is 2 minutes walk away and a real find, with live music 2 nights a week and great Ales. All in all, this is a great holiday getaway in a lovely part of North Wales. Great for people wanting a peaceful break with lots of lovely walks on your doorstep.

Myself and my husband stayed at Tyn-y-Mynydd Bach in april, 2013 for 1 week. The apartment was immaculate, cosy and comfortable,loved the woodburner and the bed gave us an excellent nights sleep after some busy days out - a "real treasure" set in an idyllic setting. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to our friends and family and will more than likely come back to stay on another ocassion.

We've stayed at Tyn-Y-Mynydd Bach several times over the last few years as it is so convenient when visiting family who live nearby. The other reason we keep returning is that this really is a great apartment! It has everything a couple would want for an enjoyable and relaxing break. The apartment is well very furnished and being on the first floor in a detached building, it is also very private with great views out over the fields. It's very well insulated which is handy when visiting North Wales - although the central heating and wood burner are still much appreciated! My one suggestion - when you visit make sure you walk up the lane to the Blue Bell Inn a few minutes walk away. It does't serve food but is a great community pub & post office - they even organise walks and sometimes you'll find live music in the bar. The night we visited, the landlords were being awarded with a well deserved CAMRA regional award for the best pub in 2015!
