Guestbook & Reviews

Below are some of the lovely reviews left on TripAdvisor over the years.

“Yet again we experienced a memorable stay at Bryn Tirion cottage. The attention to detail and hospitality is exceptional. You are welcomed with a delightful array of local produce as a generous extra. The cottage is beautifully equipped with gorgeous soft furnishings and linen. The location is magical and with a local village  pub within walking distance this is a true escape. Step into the world of Beatrix Potter. If you love walking, cosy nights in and a complete get away, then this is most definitely a must stay option! With the delights of the North Wales coastline and mountains at your disposal and excellent shopping in Chester and Cheshire Oaks you will not be disappointed. Our times spent at Bryn Tirion cottage are etched in our hearts as unforgettable times. Thank you and we will see you soon x “

“This wonderful little cottage is something out of a storybook or Movie! It is one of those Jems that I am so happy to have found.

Not only is the garden and surrounding areas just a little bit of heaven but the cottage itself is beautiful, cute and cosy. Great to cuddle up on the sofa with a hot chocolate or glass of wine after a long walk in the hills.

And then there are your hosts – they are the perfect of hosts that may leave little arrival suprises which are the perfect cherry on top of the cake. They are also so kind and happy to help with any information that you might need during your stay.

Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting a get away retreat!!

Thank you Sylvia and John!”

“Yet another perfect holiday at the gorgeous tranquillity of BRYN TIRION COTTAGE in North Wales. Thank you to mine hosts Sylvia and John for making me so welcome. I will be back !!

Wonderful walking, wonderful scenery, very friendly and kind helpful hosts, every possible attention to detail in the cottage for cleanliness and comfort. BRYN TIRION COTTAGE made me feel I was in another world. Super pubs and cafes to enjoy in the Alyn and Clwydian valleys, with the opportunity to visit the north Wales coast, which is not far away.

Highly recommended and I look forward to returning to this magical cottage nestling in the Alyn valley, which I discovered in 2017, once again next year. Thank you John and Sylvia 😀👍”

“What a beautiful place, such a warm welcome from Sylvia and John. Very accommodating hosts. The rooms are decorated beautifully and immaculately clean. The cottage is a ‘proper’ cottage and has amazing views and is situated for fantastic walks or to just sit and chill and enjoy the garden and it’s surroundings, I would imagine it will be even more beautiful in summer and autumn. Will definitely be back. Thank you”

“On arrival at Bryn-Tyrion, we were warmly welcomed by Sylvia and John and were given homemade scones, jam and cream with tea and were so friendly which made us feel so relaxed.

The apartment was so delightful, spotlessly clean and as it was our anniversary…Sylvia left some treats which were so thoughtful.

The apartment had everything one could ever wish for and more.. just delightful in every way. Truly wonderful!

John and Sylvia are the most friendliest of people one could ever wish to meet..and without doubt we highly recommend anyone to stay at this lovely place.

“I stayed at Bryn Tirion Cottage for a long weekend (Friday – Sunday). From the off, I was greeted by the ever welcoming Sylvia and John who had prepared the apartment for me including little extras to make me feel even more at home. The cottage is overlooking a beautiful valley, sitting out in the gardens in the evening was bliss, listening to the tree’s rustling and watching the sunset will be something I will long for in future holidays, it was absolutely perfect. The apartment is styled in a beautiful period fashion including original wooden beans and tasteful decor. It had everything I needed to make me feel at home.

I can’t speak any more highly of Sylvia and John, they are an absolute pleasure to be around and made me feel most welcome in their home. I look forward to spending more time at Bryn Tirion and would absolutely recommend it to those looking for a clean break from city life.”

“Yet another wonderful escape to this beautiful cottage. Everything was, as always, perfectly prepared and ready for my arrival ! Mine hosts, Sylvia and John are the warmest, kindest and hospitable folk. The beautiful countryside, coastal walks, castles, superb walking areas in woods, up the hills and friendly locals makes Bryn Tirion Cottage my favourite escape destination and I very much look forward to returning very soon.

Recommend 100% for a perfect countryside holiday escape in beautiful north Wales.”


“We spent a delightful few days in this idilic cottage apartment. Sylvia and John were fantastic hosts and paid great attention to detail that ensured we had a comfortable and relaxing stay. The cozy apartment was well provisioned and felt welcoming, made all the better for the delicious home made scones and lemon drizzle cake on our arrival. The weather was beautiful so we took advantage by enjoying tea in their stunning garden. The location is in an area of ‘outstanding natural beauty’,which is great for walking and provides access to a number of good pubs and villages. We very much intend to return. Diolch, Marc & Shelley.”
