The Arch is in an idyllic location set in a peaceful and picturesque valley. The accommodation is cosy and unique with a lot of atmosphere, wood and stone floors, real fires and exposed beams. Lots of interesting places to visit nearby, we enjoyed Chirk castle and viaduct and the waterfall at Pistyll Rhaeadr.

Mr Wall, Epping, August 2013

The Arch was a very good place to stay if you wanted a quiet secluded area. Pant Glas is situated in some beautiful countryside, and in easy reach of quite a number of well known land marks and towns. Llangollen is a particular favourite of ours as well as being close to Snowdonia National Park which again was spectacular. The best thing about being in The Arch compared to other one bedroomed properties was the actual space we had; the rooms were quite spacious.

Mr Banks, Swadlincote, August 2013

The accommodation was quaint and querky, and every attention to detail was there for our enjoyment. Extremely clean and tidy. Surrounding countryside stunning and peaceful. Happy we stayed here.

Mrs Carpenter, Staines-upon-Thames, July 2013

The cottage was in a beautiful position and were made to feel very welcome. We enjoyed the recommended walks.
