“Very central for Llangollen and ...”Very central for Llangollen and North Wales. One drawback was that although Chirk is a lovely village there is constant smoke emitting from the chimneys at the Kronospan factory. The house is situated in a very quiet close and no sounds of traffic at all. The owner had left us a welcome letter and milk, eggs and tea and coffee which were appreciated after a long car journey from Kent and Essex.

About the location
Llangollen 5 miles.
The small border town of Chirk stands on the escarpment above where the rivers Ceiriog and Dee meet, and is referred to as The Gateway to Wales. Most famous for its magnificent 14th century castle and gardens, one of many built throughout Wales by Edward I, Chirk boasts a wonderful aqueduct, designed by Thomas Telford, a selection of pleasant pubs and restaurants, convenience stores, chemist, gift shop, coffee shops, local butcher's, greengrocers, bakery, an excellent golf course and marina. The surrounding area, notably the beautiful Ceiriog Valley described by Lloyd George as “a little bit of heaven on Earth”, provides wonderful walks and cycling, including the famous Offa's Dyke Pathway, and local trout fishing. Only five miles from charming Llangollen, with its stream railway, watersports, famous Eisteddfod, Castell Dinas Bran, Valle Crucis Abbey and scenic Horseshoe Pass. Also five miles is the market town of Oswestry with its iron age hillfort, and within easy reach is the Roman walled city of Chester with its famous zoo and the medieval town of Shrewsbury, both only half an hour by train or car from Chirk. The beautiful Lake Vyrnwy and Llanrheadr waterfall are also within an hours drive. This great location has plenty to see and do for all the family!
