The garden was adventurous, great place for children, plenty of wild life. It is equally as delightful for adults with a sense of humour. Excellent place for relaxing.

The location of the Talhenbont Hall was perfect for us and allowed plenty of day trips. I was pleasantly surprised by the overall high standard of The Conifers and would recommend it to friends at any time.
Mr Horton

An excellent place to take children. The situation of the accomodation within Talhenbont Hall provided excellent (and interesting) walks within easy access.
Mrs Russell
November 2005
We thought the whole Talhenbont estate was lovely. It was fantastic to have the gardens and woodland right outside the door.
Mr Weeks

The owner was very friendly. The gardens surrounding the cottage were very interesting.
Mrs Nixon

The location and setting of the cottage was superb and a delight. The cottage was beautifully furnished with lovely attention to detail.

The grounds around the property are fantastic, full of ducks, peacocks, rare birds etc. Also the walks were superb along the river and in the surrounding area. The property was very spacious.

The cottage was just what we wanted and more !! We wanted a chill-out break and this was the ideal place for us. The cottage is very comfortable and the area surrounding it was a lovely surprise. The gardens and surrounding walks were very enjoyable. Will definitely go back for another visit !!

Possibly one of the best holiday cottages I have visited in the UK. I particularly liked the open beams and internal stonework. We were also made to feel very welcome during our visit by the owner and also the gardener who kept the surroundings immaculate.

Lovely situation and comfortable.

This was our fourth stay at the conifers. Again, it was perfect. The grounds and gardens are fantastic for small children. The owner and his team were very friendly, letting my sons help to feed the peacocks and ducks, which they loved.
Mrs Butler
June 2016
A quiet, clean, comfortable cottage in unspoilt surroundings with rather exuberant feathered neighbours which we enjoyed feeding. There were extensive grounds with good walking and a quirky garden and woodland decorations.
Mrs Mounfield
June 2014
The peacefulness, -- it is a place where you can relax and chill out. I particularly liked being able to hand feed a peacock at the kitchen door - a first for me!.
Mr Harris
June 2013
A very well equipped and comfy cottage in impressive surroundings, provided an excellently located base for the myriad of castles and little railways in the area. The whole experience was enhanced by the presence of the flock of peacocks and other birds that were wandering freely around the grounds
Mrs Butler
June 2011
The cottage was the best we have ever stayed in and the setting was marvellous. We loved the wildlife, the gardens and the woodland walks. There was something interesting (and quirky) to see at every turn. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the noises from the 'Quackery' only added to the charm. Definitely a holiday to remember.
Mr Boardman
July 2012
A beautiful place to stay.
November 2010
We enjoyed the service from Sykes Holidays and Mr Good at the Hall was very helpful and friendly. The cottage was excellent, nicely furnished and well planned for a relaxing holiday. The position and immediate surroundings were probably more suitable for a family holiday, rather that for an older couple and dog. The estate would be exciting for older children. There were no local ammenities and it was quite a distance from the main road.
Mr Henry

An excellent cottage - unusual location - vast area for exploration; suited to young families. Very pleasant and helpful owner.
Mrs Lane
November 2010
The cottage was beautiful, the surroundings were beautiful - the nature around you and the peacocks and birds walking around freely. It was a very, very nice retreat, for a well needed break.
Mr Williams
April 2010
Location was excellent. Cottage was exceptional; much better than I expected. The gardens and woodlands were excellent, roads fantastic; the kids loved it.
Mr Allen
June 2010
It was an interesting and enjoyable place to stay, with a touch of eccentricity and a generally relaxed atmosphere.
Mr Wardle
October 2008
An enchanting cottage in a magical setting. Warm welcome on arrival and help was there if needed, but the grounds, ducks and pheasants were the real bonus. How often can you feed ducks from your back door? Would go back or recommend to anyone.

This was our third visit and is unlikely to be our last. The grounds and situation are excellent for a young family. The cottage is lovely and homely.
Miss Abbas

The proprietor was very welcoming and courteous. The situation was idyllic - an excellent retreat for all ages. We look forward to returning in the future.

It was a truly magical place for children and adults alike. For those to chill out this is the place. We loved it.

The cottage is situated in a shady spot within the grounds and near the bird sanctuary and play area. Mr Good was friendly and helpful. A car is essential and the area has a great many attractions for all age groups within an easy drive. A selection of leaflets about things of interest were only found at the end of the stay as they were tucked on a shelf under the TV. This should be more prominent. The cottage was cooler than outside temperatures so take jumpers if you want to avoid high electricity bills. The furnishings and bed linen were OK but dated and towels were not included but we were informed of this. It was difficult to regulate the temperature of the shower in the utility room and this room would be improved by having a warm towel rail to dry towels and hooks to hang up clothing. The kitchen was well equipped and clean and had a good supply of portmerion pottery. We enjoyed our stay but it wasn't as comfortable as previous rented cottages.
August 2011
The cottage itself was excellent. Everything required for a week's stay was there.We were sorry there was no visitor's book, as these are helpful for local visits and eating places. The estate itself is very, very weary. The grounds near the cottage were not as described, ie, the water gardens. They were a mess. I felt sorry for the water birds. I could cheerfully have disposed of the 4 peacocks, they made their usual noises day and early morning, and insisted on messing on the door step. I was glad we had no grandchildren with us, the cottage carpets would have needed a good clean due to the mess everywhere. On the approach roads there were signs for the public to come to the gardens and we were told these had been shut for quite some years, so why are the signs still in evidence?

I stayed at Conifers Cottage in June with my husband and elderly mother. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everthing necessary for a comfortable stay including hot water bottles for cold nights!! Situated in the water gardens of ther Plas Talhenbont estate, we enjoyed the company of assorted wildlife - ducks, geese, peacocks, chickens whenever we wished it. the grounds were well presented with a magical air coupled with a fine sense of humour in and around the woodland. There was something of interest for all ages. We would happily return here for a further stay.
