Nice property... Amenities a bit tired but fine. Dont forget anything... Would be more than 2* but the managing agents never get back to you and stuff never returned (left a torque wrench). Will update if changes.
Amazing trip house is a bit tired in places but so beautiful we had a ball. There is plenty of space to breathe and loads to do.
We rented this house as a family for the October 2015 half term. The specification on paper looked very impressive and we were all really looking forward to our stay. The house has so much potential but very little of that potential has been realised.
Where do I begin???
There were so many things that were broken or not working, I'll list them below...
The House - The house is really big and has bucket loads of potential. However there were so many problems with it. The whole house was generally very tatty and needs a major refurbishment. The fridge was leaking water onto the floor, one of the toilets was leaking from the cistern onto the floor. There were several nail heads sticking out of the wooden floors that the children were catching their feet on, thankfully it only tore their socks and not their skin (I hammered in the ones we found, but I'd rather save my diy skills for my own house!). Only the most basic channels were working on the Sky box. One of the showers was not working. The running machine was broken and the gym generally was not up to much. Many of the lightbulbs were blown and not replaced. The cot supplied is only a travel cot and is not supplied with sheets (thankfully my wife had brought some spare ones).
Outside - The decking areas were covered in green moss/algae. All the paving areas could do with a pressure wash. Part of the external render was missing and had been covered up with tarpaulin.
The Swimming Pool - The water looked cloudy and was very cold. The building that housed it was on its last legs, the doors and windows wouldn't close properly and the pool liner was coming away in quite a few places.
The Sauna - This only had one of its elements working so would not reach a suitable temp. There was no water bucket or ladle to put water on the stones. It was generally unclean and the toilet just outside overflowed onto the floor if flushed twice in a row.
In summary, this could be an amazing place to stay but it needs a lot of work doing to get to that place. There are some great things to do nearby, Chirk Castle is well worth a visit and caters for all ages. There is an aqueduct nearby and plenty of lovely walks to go on, it really is a beautiful area.
What a brilliant place to stay at! The rooms were spacious and the children and young adults had a great time with the facilities for over 40 people. Very nice hosts too. Beautiful area to see Manor House is an excellent base.

We enjoyed everything the place had to offer even the Bronygarth Village Party with Yurts were great fun too.
