  • “The property would benefit with a downstairs loo.”

    The beds were very comfortable. The owner was extremely pleasant. The grounds were beautiful and we were able with the owners permission allow the dogs to have a run in the garden.

About the property

Trefonen 1.6 miles.

Resting between the market town of Oswestry and the endearing Welsh village of Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain, is the characterful, stone-built Graig Gwyn Cottage.

Enjoying a rural position, this heart-warming retreat is perfect for couples, families and walkers seeking to explore the Offa's Dyke pathway, the Berwyn Mountain Range and all of the delights of the nearby towns and villages.

After an action-packed afternoon, be welcomed in by the characterful interior with the vaulted ceiling and the exposed brick fireplace complementing the carefully selected furnishings to ensure a welcoming base to return to each evening.

Venture into the farmhouse-style kitchen, where you will be delighted to find an impressive Range cooker and an exposed brick wall which plays backdrop to all the other quality appliances you will need to whip up your own home-cooked meals during your week-long stay.

Situated up the staircase are two refreshing bedrooms, a king-size and a double, which house a bright colour palette and ample storage and space to house all of your personal belongings.

During the summer months, venture outside to soak up the sun on the patio area where a spot of alfresco dining can be enjoyed before stretching your legs on the spacious lawn area, where the countryside views can be enjoyed further.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, venture into the nearby village of Trefonen where you will find a traditional pub serving food, or venture slightly further to the town of Oswestry where you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of eateries that await you.

For those seeking to explore the countryside, Jones' Rough nature reserve can be found at the of the lane, or setting further, the famous Offa’s Dyke Pathway is situated just 0.2 miles from the cottage which offers a magnitude of walks and breath-taking views.

Other walks include the Berwyn Mountain Range and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct offers a gentle stroll.

Brush up on the local history by discovering the National Trust Properties of Erddig, Chirk and Powis Castles, all located within a short drive.

Alternatively, venture to the historic city of Chester or the medieval town of Shrewsbury to discover further amenities.

Graig Gwyn Cottage is a delightful base for exploring the countryside setting further.

About the location


Oswestry 3.5 miles; Llanhaeadr-ym-Mochnant 8 miles; Shrewsbury 24 miles.

Trefonen is a rural village which stands between the ancient English border town of Oswestry and the Welsh village of Llanhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, home to Pistyll Rhaeadr, the UK’s highest single drop waterfall. This traditional village boasts a pub, shop and has Offa's Dyke pathway running through the village. It is located close to where the successful 1995 film “The Englishman Who Went up a Hill but Came Down a Mountain” was filmed. The whole area is surrounded by lovely countryside, which extends into the Berwyn Mountain Range - perfect for wonderful scenic walks and cycle trails, including along the Berwyn Ridge Pathway, the Offa’s Dyke Path and through the beautiful Tanat and Ceiriog Valleys. Visit the riverside town of Llangollen with the nearby Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (a World Heritage Site), Chirk and Powis Castles and Gardens, Erddig and Attingham Park, or visit the nearby market town of Ellesmere. Further afield lies the Welsh mountains and coast and picturesque Lakes Vyrnwy and Bala, while the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, medieval Shrewsbury and the Roman city of Chester are also within driving distance. Trefonen is an ideal base for exploring Mid Wales, Shropshire and beyond.
