  • "A lovely comfortable stay."

    The cottage was spotless. The only reason i havent given 10/10 for recommending the property is that a lot of the roads in the area are single track, especially travelling anywhere other than towards Chirk. We found a lot of the travelling we did in the area quite stressful because of this. I do it is an important overall considerstion, but the cottage itself was lovely

  • "We absolutely loved our stayed at the 3 Rock Terrace."

    It is like a home from home. The house was extremely clean and well maintained. Lots of kitchen equipment. The mattresses were like sleeping on clouds which we all needed (tired mums trip). There is a couple of local pubs which are 5 minutes walk from the house and lots of activities to do close by. I would absolutely stay here again and already recommend it to friend and family.

  • "This was a lovely cottage that we were very fortunate to book at short notice."

    Everything worked as expected, it was in a lovely location near two pubs (and the Cider and Gin festival was back at The Hand the night we were there!) and the hot tub was also fun. The kitchen was well equipped, the shower fantastic and the three bedrooms had comfortable beds. Very restful. Thanks for having us!

  • "The house was lovely - the beds in particular were very comfortable."

    The village itself was very friendly and quiet which was exactly what we wanted. The hot tub was great fun and a cool addition to our stay. There’s a no shoe policy at the house, which I understand, but it would have been handy to have had a list of the rules in advance - because then I would have packed my slippers!

  • "We like the property a lot!"

    Kids loved the bunk beds. The village itself is very beautiful with a very nice pub and the back garden. Its in the middle of nowhere which is exactly how we wanted it. The house has all the things which we needed and it was kids friendly with smart tvs everywhere.

  • "The hot tub chemicals were far to strong, gave myself & husband quite a rash in our bodies, we have our own tub and have never experienced this before."

    More details of how to actually get to the cottage are required example ‘pass the school, turn next right up a shared driveway’…. We have stayed at a few Sykes Cottages, all have given a gift of a bottle of something on arrival, we were very disappointed Rock Cottage didn’t offer this! It was a cute little cottage in a tiny village with an amazing pub called The Hand in an incredibly beautiful part of Wales.

    Thank you for your comments, we always appreciate feedback and are happy to take them on board. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the area and local amenities whilst staying at the cottage. We are sorry to hear about your issue with the hot tub, however we do follow the hot tubs guidelines thoroughly, and have not had this issue before. Thank you for the advise on the directions, if it would have helped our guests it is definitely something we will look into getting added for future stays. We always want to improve for our guests and would like to thank you for choosing to stay at Rock Cottage and would hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

    The hot tub is located at the front of the property, which is missing from the description, but this didn’t bother us. 5 minute walk to 2 lovely pubs, and lots of great walks in the area. Would highly recommend

  • "Parking was very tight, we had 3 cars and other than the drive there was nowhere else to park."

    The hot tub is situated at the front of the house so we had to walk around the cars to get to the hot tub. If 3 couples are to stay in this cottage just be mindful the third bedroom with the bunk bed is very small, it’s probably best for maybe two couples and two children. Please make sure you book a table if you wish to eat at the pubs close by as they are always fully booked and will not get you in at short of notice. Which then means you’ll have to drive to the next village to eat. I recommend the Swan Inn, the food and service was superb! They got us in last minute. There isn’t much to do on the door step here, so be mindful that you will have to drive if you wish to go out and about. Overall this little cottage, is beautiful and immaculate. The hot tub was amazing it was nice to chill with family on the night. If you do not wish to venture out they have all the facilities you need to have a cosy weekend in. Beautiful stay with family just what we needed, thank you!

  • "The house itself was lovely, comfortable and great for our stay."

    To have it listed as Llangollen should not be allowed as it is not. The outside areas, we feel, were photographed in a way that did not make it apparent that the hot tub is on the front of a shared drive and the seating isn’t very private. The beds, living room and kitchen however were lovely and clean. It would have been helpful to have instructions for the burner.

The property

Glyn Ceiriog 5.1 miles.

Enjoying a prime position within North Wales, being in within striking distance of the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, Pistyll Rhaeadr and the famous town of Llangollen is this semi-detached cottage, 3 Rock Terrace.

With so much to see and do within the area, this is a great spot for families seeking an action-packed holiday and the cottage boasts everything you could possibly need for superb self-catering experience, you will be delighted to call this home during your visit.

Enter into the characterful sitting room and look forward to sinking into the sumptuous sofa as you flick through the channels of the Smart TV, with the woodburning stove crackling in the background, offering a tranquil ambiance as you relax into your evening.

When you are not dining in the two local pubs, be sure to make use of the range of quality appliances within the contemporary kitchen, with the added benefit of a dishwasher and a washing machine to offer a helping hand for the duration of your stay.

As the evening draws to a close, make your way up the staircase to find three elegantly-presented bedrooms, consisting of a king-size double bedroom with TV, a double bedroom with TV and a bunk bedroom, each enjoying a refreshing colour palette, good storage space and pretty views of the surroundings to admire as you wake up each morning.

To take advantage of the sunshine all day, the property has a front and rear garden, with the front garden boasting tranquil sounds of a nearby stream whilst the rear garden enjoys views of the rocks, which the cottage was named after.

If you can tear yourself away from this quaint cottage, venture a short distance into the centre of the village, where you will find two pubs The West Arms and The Hand at Llanarmon, each one serving food or travel further afield into Glyn Ceiriog, where you will find further eateries and a shop for picking up the essentials.

To keep you busy whilst here, be sure to visit Pistyll Rhaeadr, a 240ft high waterfall nestled amidst the Berwyn Mountains, providing great walking opportunities.

From here, you can also visit the charming town of Llangollen, look forward to meandering the pretty lanes lined with independent shops or stroll along the Victoria Promenade before enjoying delicious fish and chips; towering over the town are the ruins of Castell Dinas Brân, also waiting to be explored on foot.

Other walking opportunities includes the Offa’s Dyke Path and the beautiful Clwydian Hills, or if you are feeling really adventurous, venture to the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park to climb the highest mountain peak in Wales.

For those seeking something more leisurely, visit the dramatic World Heritage Site of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct or delve into the area’s past by visiting the National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erddig.

The city of Chester is also nearby, offering superb shopping opportunities, as well as home to a world-renowned zoo, promising a great day out for the whole family.

3 Rock Terrace is a wonderful getaway to enjoy with loved ones.

Formerly the centre of the slate mining industry in the valley, Glyn Ceiriog is located three miles south of Llangollen and offers a good range of local amenities, including two village pubs, a Post Office containing tourist information and a cafe, a well-stocked village store and a community sports centre, offering a range of activities including bicycle hire, tennis, indoor bowls and table tennis.
