The Property

This semi-detached, brick-built Chirk cottage was originally the servants' quarters of the adjoining Grade II listed Edwardian gentleman's residence, both standing in their own walled grounds just 2 minutes' walk from the centre of the pleasant town of Chirk. This Chirk holiday cottage has been renovated to create light and airy accommodation combining contemporary and traditional fittings to produce a peaceful atmosphere which is perfect for a family holiday or a romantic break for two. With three bedrooms at this Chirk cottage, there is plenty of room for all of the family, whilst for art lovers, there is a fascinating mural of "The Painting of Ladies" on the wall of the single bedroom, painted by Elsie Eldridge, wife of the famous poet R S Thomas. The large rear lawned garden at this Chirk cottage is ideal for dining alfresco after a day exploring the nearby scenic Ceiriog Valley or further afield in North Wales. Within 2 miles of this Chirk cottage, you can enjoy the National Trust's 14th century Chirk Castle, the marvellous 70-foot high Chirk Aqueduct, an excellent golf course and a marina.

The surrounding area, notably the beautiful Ceiriog Valley described by Lloyd George as “a little bit of heaven on Earth”, provides wonderful walks, cycling including the famous Offa's Dyke Pathway, and local trout fishing.
