We have just spent a wonderful week at Hendwr and have come back totally chilled out! We normally go camping but for a change decided to stay in a log cabin. Good job we did, as we reckon it was the wettest first week in August on record. This didn't matter though as we all had a fantastic time touring North Wales, as well as climbing Snowdon! The lodge was warm, clean (and dry!) and perfect for our family of 4 - our lodge was the one by the stream and the children spent many hours paddling and playing in the water (even in the rain) - it was great for them to have the freedom to get wet and dirty. All the staff were very helpful and friendly.
A thoroughly good time was had by all.
We have just returned from two weeks at the log cabin and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the lodge by the stream which was ideal for us and our three children (aged 14, 11 and 9). The site itself is large and has lots of mobile homes - created into almost a little village... which in themselves were interesting and fun to look at, particularly all the gardens people had created. It's a very quiet site and felt very safe to let our children roam freely. Great little shop too and very friendly staff and owners - limited opening but staff always on hand if needed. I think that the bathroom of the lodge has had a recent upgrade as appears brand new and sparkling - so as per the other review the shower fits all heights! The lodge itself was a joy to stay in and had everything you needed - operated by a coin meter though I think we spent about £12 in the entire two weeks and used the electricity well with cooking, lights, tv and charging devices. It is also very atmospheric and lovely sleeping in a log cabin!!
The site is very beautiful overall and it was lovely to see the animals from the farm - one morning our garden was invaded by a flock of sheep! soon gathered up by the sheep dog, but the kids loved it!
The drive into the site was also another bonus and pleasure as was the meandering stream which we followed along to where it opens up into the River Dee at the camping side of the site and a great spot for swimming and picnic.
All in all we would highly recommend to anyone wanting a quiet peaceful getaway, with lots of green space. The only struggle we had was with the wifi which we bought for three days but could get only weak and very intermittent connection - this could be as we were right on the edge and by the stream and also a day of rain which seemed to knock it out altogether!
The only further thing I would add is that this is a great spot for touring and visiting North Wales, with beaches and mountains only an hour away, along with castles a hiking. Corwen too also has it all - great pubs, friendly locals, most excellent fish and chips, beautiful old church and great walks! Thanks you John and Glenys for a very memorable holiday - we will see you again soon! Best wishes from the Escotts!
We stayed half term in June 11 & had a fantastic time. The accomodation couldn't be better, & if you are after a quiet family time, then this holiday is perfect.
Me and my boyfriend have just got back from spending my 22nd birthday at Hendwyr. We had a great time, extremly friendly staff, comfortable lodges and fabulous views!! The site was great for families and couples alike, very clean and well kept lodges and good value for money too!! I would reccomend this site to family and friends and will definatley be staying again.
Myself, my partner and his mother have been coming to Llynor Lodge for several years now. The owners are friendly and helpful and provide an excellent customer service. The lodges are situated in a beautiful rural setting offering peace and tranquility. The surrounding countryside offers something for all interests - walking, climbing, fishing, eating, drinking, exploring and are in a great position to make more extended visits to such places as Harlech, Barmouth, Chester, Wrexham, Llangollen, Erddig Gardens or Port Meirion to name just a few. As well as exploring the lakesides around Bala (Llyn Tegid) and Lake Vyrnwy - for those interested in fishing day or weekly licences are available locally.
The lodge is comfortable, well laid out and contains all 'mod cons'.
There are a number of very good eating establishments in the surrounding area. One we would highly recommend is the Bryntirion Inn only a few miles away, where a friendly welcome is always given and the food is excellent and home cooked.
This is one of the few places we have felt we wanted to re-visit time and again.
John was very friendly and helpful. Lodge in quiet area of caravan park, and although a little dated in decor and that the shower was not sufficient for anyone over 4'6", the lodge was of a good standard.
Location ideal for all activities in Snowdonia.
Would stay again if visiting Wales (I'll take a extra long shower hose though!!)
