Absolutely superb! Fantastic views from beautiful accommodation. My 94 year old mum loved it. The cottage is well adapted to disability issues. We loved the open fire and watching the birds on the feeders. Brilliant hosts who thought of everything.

Lovely cottages situated in beautiful surroundings with outstanding views. Terraces and garden for outdoor entertaining. We were a party of 8 and took both cottages. The cottages are cosy and individual and the owners very helpful. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

About the neighbourhood
Our nearest town is Llangollen situated on the River Dee and on the edge of the Berwyn mountains.Standing high above the town to the north is Castell Dinas Bran, the former stronghold of the Princes of Powys. On the outskirts of the town is Plas Newydd where The Sarah Ponsonby and Lady Eleanor Butler (the Ladies of Llangollen) lived. Llangollen has much to offer its visitors, with its steam heritage railway, horse drawn canal boat trips, motor museum, as well as a host of interesting shops, restaurants and pubs. For lovers of outdoor pursuits,there are many available nearby including white water rafting, canoeing, fishing , horse riding, mountain biking, climbing and of course endless walks in stunning scenery.
Getting around
We are around five minutes drive from all the amenities of Llangollen in a rural area of outstanding natural beauty. We recommend you have the use of a car.
