    “This property was all we expected, the only thing that I would recommend to improve would be that some comfortable seating be provided outside.”

    On a beautiful sunny day you only had a hard bench to use to sit outside.

The property

Llansilin 1.3 miles.

This detached, L-shaped stone farmhouse is situated in luscious rolling countryside on the outskirts of Llansilin, four and a half miles from Oswestry.

Right on the border of Wales and England, Coed Y Gaer is perfect for walkers and cyclists exploring the stunning regions of Powys and Shropshire.

Accessed by a long farm track across the owner’s farmland, the property is surrounded by lawned gardens and gravelled patios with outdoor dining furniture.

There is a family bathroom and three comfortable bedrooms upstairs, including two with double beds and one with a single.

A fourth bedroom can be found on the first floor, reached by its own private staircase from the utility room, with a spacious, master double bedroom.

There is also a shower room on the ground floor.

The kitchen is bright, with a dining table where everyone can sit and eat together whilst planning the day’s adventures.

There are two sitting rooms, separated by an open doorway, where you can relax with your feet up in comfort.

When the sun is out, step outside to enjoy the stunning, seemingly endless views of rolling countryside that surround the Coed Y Gaer.

You can dine on the patio and sip a refreshing beverage whilst marvelling at the peace and tranquillity of this sensational location! There is a pub in Llansilin just over a mile away, as well as shops and eating places in the lovely market town of Oswestry.

From this excellent location you can easily visit Shrewsbury, Whitchurch, Powys and Chirk Castle, and even venture into the Snowdonia National Park or Shropshire Hills AONB.

An excellent, relaxing holiday destination, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

About the location


Llanhaeadr-ym-Mochnant 6 miles; Oswestry 6 miles; Shrewsbury 24 miles.

Llansilin is an attractive, 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. The sleepy village of Llansilin boasts a pub, a small community shop and the 13th century St. Silin Church, but is well known for being the main location of the successful 1995 film “The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain”, as well as being the home of Sycharth, which was the site of Owain Glyndwr’s 14th century castle. 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 Ceiriog Valley, known as “The Valley of Poets”. Visit the riverside town of Llangollen with the nearby Pontcysylle Aqueduct, a World Heritage Site, Chirk and Powis Castles, Erddig and Attingham Park, or visit the nearby market town of Ellesmere, once described by Alan Bennet as ‘Shropshire’s Lake District’. Further afield lies the Welsh mountains and coast and picturesque Lakes Vyrnwy and Bala, while the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, Medieval Shrewsbury and Roman Chester are also within easy driving distance. Llansilin is an ideal base for exploring Mid Wales, Shropshire and beyond.
