“Breathtaking cottage!!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed here this weekend for a friends 30th Birthday and had the most lovely time. After quite a long drive arriving at this cottage was incredible, beautifully presented with stunning views. House was immaculate and spacious enough for our large group. The location is great as the garden is not overlooked but on taking a trip to a few beach towns nearby we decided we were better off staying at the cottage as they were quite run down. The nearby waterfall is worth a visit. My only advice to those booking would be to plan ahead with meals. The kitchen has an Aga but no cooker so it is very slow and difficult to cater for large parties. There is a BBQ and microwave but cooking a chilli, fried breakfast and oven chips all proved nearly impossible and even though there are 3 Aga cookbooks we hadn't planned for it and so spent many hours around the Aga!! All in all a truly lovely house, would definitely return. Thank you!!

Thank you very much for your lovely feedback about Holly House. I’m not sure which beach town you visited but we recommend the attractive market town of Prestatyn which is 4 miles away. This has a very nice beach and a super town centre which has recently had considerable development with Tesco, M&S, Next, River Island, Boots etc all opening brand new stores. There are also a host of attractive cafes and restaurants on the high street. For those who have used an Aga they are the best thing ever but we recognise an oven with no controls can be a bit daunting at first!
We do try to balance imparting information about the house and area when guests arrive with giving them privacy and rest after a long journey. We send all guests a list of recommended places to visit before they come to ensure that they are informed of all the wonderful places nearby and we are always to offer advice during a guest’s stay.

“stunning property”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a family get together here for a 60th birthday celebration and everyone was stunned by how gorgeous Holly House is. We had young children with us who loved playing hide and seek in all beautifully decorated rooms and cute window seats. The views are breathtaking such a relaxing place to be. The games room with pool and football tables were a big hit with the men and children too. We had a very special weekend here and cant wait to return.

“Fantastic!!!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We spent a brilliant weekend at Holly House. The owners are lovely and nothing was too much trouble. All rooms were immaculate and beautifully designed. The house felt like home and had lots of space (there were 11 of us) The kitchen/dining room provided a great party room and the views are amazing. Highly recommended!

“gorgeous house”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This house is so gorgeous. Myself and nine friends stayed last weekend and had an amazing time. When we got there the heating wasnt working. The owners went out and bought six heaters for us and then got an emergency plumber out. The problem was soon sorted...nothing too much trouble. The views are amazing and the interior is just perfect...spacious and relaxing. We would love to return.

Thank you Marie for your review. We couldn't believe it when the boiler stopped workng just before your arrival. Fortunately Tesco was open to get fan heaters. I needn't have bothered as when I told the emergency plumber we had a group of young ladies staying in the house with no heating he dropped everything and was at the house in an hour! I felt a bit silly as I only needed to press a reset button. Still I know what to do if it ever happens again. Hope to see you again sometime in the future. David
