Perfect Scenic Hidden Gem 5/5 5/5

My partner and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary and we loved it. The pod was so clean, had everything you could possibly need & the bed was super comfy. We brought our own food & snacks on our way through from a big supermarket, in order to cook breakfast & a few dinners which I’d recommend, as there’s not many shops nearby. However we did enjoy some meals out too. We were provided with plenty of towels which was handy, as we used some for the hot tub which was one of our favourite additions. Sitting inside the tub whilst listening to the sheep & birds was so calming. The location itself was very remote and really peaceful. It’s only about a 10 minute drive from the beautiful Lake Vyrnwy - we walked round the whole lake & visited one of the waterfalls which was an afternoon well spent. On our first day we drove 1.5 hours to climb Snowdon, the drive was one of the best drives I’ve ever had, just stunning scenary. I’d totally recommend this hike, we was lucky with the weather which I think makes it. The owners were kind enough to forward a postcard to my address that my mum had sent for our anniversary - thank you so much for this and for a wonderful memorable long weekend stay.

Amazing stay! 5/5

Location of the pod is very close to Lake Vyrnwy which is why I booked it. It’s super cute and the view is outstanding. Will definitely be booking again!!!

Samantha MacNamara | 04 April 2024

A glorious stay! 5/5

Yr Onnen was absolutely perfect. From the second we arrived the pod was in perfect condition, with a small welcome pack for us and the hot tub ready to go. The views are stunning, and my wife and I had an amazing time. There is also so much glorious scenery to explore in the surrounding area - the lake in particular is stunning! All in all a wonderful few days away!

What a wonderful stay… 4.8/5

What a wonderful long weekend away - and one me and my Fiancée will never forget! Booked the Pod for a long weekend away, and even though I knew what to expect from the photos when I got to the locations I was stunned by the views and the quality and size of the pod and surrounding area. On arrival the pod was clean and tidy with a couple of welsh treats left for us. We were also left a note saying that we could check out later if we wanted due to no booking after us which was nice. The pod was spacious with all modern comforts, tv had good access to streaming and tv, WiFi was available, fridge with freezer and shower in the pod. We were left with wood and other materials for the fire pit which was included in cost and I sizeable hot tub which we used numerous times. The location was quiet which is what we wanted from our get away and even though we had neighbours in adjoining pod - we was not disturbed at all. What a wonderful stay, a wonderful weekend and we can’t wait to come back!

Matthew Heritage | 05 March 2024

Everything you need, lots of peace and quiet 5/5

Great pod with all amenities. Fantastic peaceful location for relaxing, walking and exploring local area. We stayed with 2 young children who also really enjoyed it. Would recommend.

Jessica Hotchin | 28 February 2024

Great weekend getaway 4.8/5

Really really great place me and my partner enjoyed it a lot, it was so cosy and loved how the tv had Netflix haha. Really good customer service as they emailed me saying we could stay until 12 due to no one being in the pod that day unfortunately, I did miss that email as for some reason it went straight to my junk for some reason but I think it was a really kind gesture from them. We have also recommended it to about 10 people it was so good!!

Jack Brookes | 07 February 2024

Mini Break 5/5

Lovey stay over new year. The Pod was spotless and very modern. Nice little hamper on arrival, the views were stunning even the torrential rain didn’t dampen our stay, really warm and cosy. Hot tub was a real highlight. The only thing I would add is more signs I got lost when leaving as I couldn’t remember the way I had come in so I think a few extra signs up would make it abit easier. Have already booked to return.

Perfect Mini Break 5/5

The Pods really lived up to our expectations and more - the attention and care that has gone into them is amazing. The location is perfect only a short drive from some local attractions and some lovely pubs. We already love Wales but definitely fell in love with this property and will be back!

Megan Tomasso | 09 June 2023

Perfect 🙂 5/5

We had the most beautiful weekend at Yr Onnen. The hot tub was fabulous and the views are simply stunning. The pod was so cosy and comfy - it had everything we needed. Plenty of wood for the fire pit. Felt like everything had been thought about. Would love to come back soon!

Alison Cook | 22 May 2023

Perfect 5/5

Perfect getaway. I booked this with my best friend to celebrate my birthday. As with anywhere you go, there is always that scepticism about whether it would be the same as the photos. I have to say we were blown away. Not only was it just like the photos, it was even better. The views spectacular. The bed so comfortable. And the hot tub...amazing. Even the welcome gifts of Welsh cakes and lemonade were such a thoughtful touch. I will 100% recommend this place to anyone that wants to get away from the noise of 'normal' life. Thank you for sharing this part of Wales.

Julia Spencer | 18 May 2023

Lovely pod in a lovely location 5/5

My sister and I stayed at Yr Onnen with our children (aged 3 and 7 months). The hosts kindly provided a travel cot. The facilities were great. Aside from the hot tub, there were plenty of open space to run around and play games - and the views were stunning! The outdoor seating area was perfect for mealtimes, too.

Rachel Mcgoldrick | 15 May 2023
