Perfect location for that family holiday in mid-Wales, with plenty of attractions for all ages.

Dating back to the early 1900s, The Oaks is a detached holiday home, originally the home of the engineer to the Lake Vyrnwy Estate and is built of stone with a slate roof. The house has retained many of its original features including panelled doors, parquet wood flooring, sash windows and cornicing, plus the addition of a woodburner all to capture the charm and character. With a large well tended garden and small babbling brook that runs alongside with fantastic views over the local woodlands and mountains from the top this really is a fantastic position for a holiday let. Llanwddyn is a small village within the Lake Vyrnwy Estate, a National Nature Reserve. The area is popular with visitors who can enjoy bird watching, walking, cycling and riding around Lake Vyrnwy and through the Cambrian Mountains and Berwyn Range. There is a post office, cafe and several gift shops which sell local crafts and produce. An award-winning hotel is situated nearby and has a restaurant and spa facilities and offers pheasant shooting and trout fishing in season. The area is a great base from which to explore mid and North Wales, Shropshire and Cheshire, within easy driving distance are Bala Lake, Dolgellau, Oswestry and Welshpool, there are 4 National trust properties nearby, Powys Castle, Chirk Castle, Erddig and Attingham Park. The west Wales coastline is less than an hours drive, similarly are Chester and Bangor on Dee racecourses. Llangollen, Betws-y-Coed and Snowdonia are around an hour and well worth the journey. Outdoor pursuits are available locally with a wide range of activities on offer from gorge walking, white water rafting, canoeing and sailing. Shop 1½ miles, pub 1¼ mile and restaurant 50 yards.

    This cottage has the potential to be amazing but unfortunately was let down by the lack of heating and poor showers. Plenty of space for the family but we were limited to 2 downstairs rooms due to the erratic heating system. We never managed to get the drawing room warm despite lighting the fire, we were here at New year with snow for some of our stay so this may be better at other times. The location is beautiful and we had many enjoyable trips out. We also enjoyed playing games around the kitchen table.

    Lovely, homely and comfortable. Lots of room and beautiful big kitchen. Furnishings not new, but beds really comfy. We were pleased to find amenities so close. Walk out of the drive either right or left and you find coffee shops and craft shops. A children’s playground and a sculpture walk within easy distance too. The house gardens are lovely but up a steep slope so not for pushchairs/mobility issues

    Showers were poor and barely trickled so hard to get properly clean. cooker didn't work properly and the hob wouldn't turn off as the knobs were broken. Heating unable to adjust ourselves which meant it was very cold throughout our stay. No fuel supplied for log fire despite this being stated as initial fuel included. Safety throughout the property was poor for young children including TV balanced on a wobbly table unfit for purpose and loose wires coiled at toddler height. Would not recommend for families with children under 6 or who need access to outside space as garden was unusable for the children.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your feedback, there are 3 showers within 4 bathrooms, the pressure of one of the showers isn’t as strong as the others, this is due to the location and is beyond our control. The other 2 showers are very good and there are also 2 baths.The cooker is in full working order however, we were alarmed to discover that you had not turned the hob off potentally causing a problem. The heating is on 24 hours a day, at 21 degrees, yuu did contact us and we turned it up to 25 degrees to accommodate your request. The fuel is by the fire in a copper bucket together with kindle and lighter and we noticed you had chosen not to use it as it wasn’t touched. This is a large Edwardian house with period furniture and the TV is on an sturdy antique table. There are no loose wires however there is the tv ariel which is behind the TV. The property is fully enclosed with a gate at the front and two gates separating the front and the back, so they can be enclosed in either the front garden or the back. We have a number of guests with young children who are very happy and return regularly and I'm sorry our house wasn’t suitable for your needs.

    A lovely big house in a great location and good value for money, however a few things could have been better - one of the showers was broken - and there were notes going back to October saying it was broken then, one of the blinds was broken - thankfully we ended up not using that room, but if someone had the light couldn't have been blocked out and we needed to request the owners for the heating to be put on more because it was cold and we had no control, but even then it wasn't exactly cosy. However, as I say, great location, huge house and lots of really nice things about it, just could do with a bit more handyman involvement....
