    “Beautiful Dog Friendly Cottage”
    Just returned from a week in the Servants Quarters and will definitely be returning. We were greeted by Mark on arrival and shown round the lovely cottage. Waiting for us in the Kitchen was a bottle of wine and a delicious cake made by Sally. The cottage was very well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. We were made to feel very welcome, and our dog was even allowed to play in the owners garden with their three puppies ...

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.

Discover the delightful town of Llangollen which offers a good range of pubs and restaurants as well as many interesting shops, canal walks and exciting white water rafting.
