Such a fab, fully equipped house to stay in for our mums 60th. Weather could have been better but that didn't stop us enjoying the cosy warm of the bodweni house with its well equipped kitchen for meals in, and big TVs for films and family game nights. Would definitely stay again and explore more of the lake and nearby walks.

Beautiful house and a great spot to relax. We had a lovely time. Worth noting however that this house is right next to Bodweni Hall. The photos make it seem like they are some distance apart and they are not! Wasn't a problem for us as the people renting the Hall for the week were very considerate.

Great stay and base for exploring north Wales. The property has lovely views of the lake and river, and some activities on site - such as kayaks, mini playground and table tennis. Hot tub was a bonus and being a few miles from town helped with supplies.

We had a great weekend away as a group for a birthday. Property very clean and set in so much space. Beds were extremely comfortable. Lots of stuff to do just within the grounds we enjoyed the pedalos on the lake and of course the hot tub! Good response from the property manager also when contacted with questions.

Lovely house and gorgeous location. House was comfortable with lovely views of the lake. Liked the quirky layout with the living room being downstairs. Spent a couple of afternoons on the lake kayaking and in the pedalos. Also enjoyed walking along the river. The children's play area was a bonus as we were holidaying with a 15 month old.
