  • "A lovely, cosy cottage in a peaceful location."

    I stayed with my two boys and there is a safe park one minute away from the front door. Situated in a quiet area, yet all the amenities of Chirk just a short drive away and lots of options for places to visit too. The owner was very kind and helpful, nothing too much trouble. On our first day there was a small problem with the boiler which I couldn’t fix and this was immediately sorted. In the summer the garden and patio will no doubt be a lovely place to sit back and unwind. My boys commented on how lovely the new carpets felt and insisted we get the same one ! I have no hesitation recommending number 8!

About the location

CHIRK

Llangollen 5 miles.

The small border town of Chirk (Welsh spelling: Y Waun) 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!
