About the location

LLANARMON DYFFRYN CEIRIOG

Llangollen 9 miles; Oswestry 10 miles; Shrewsbury 27.5 miles.

Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog is a small Welsh village located at the foothills of the Berwyn Mountains in the Ceiriog Valley, between Oswestry and Llangollen. A former stopping point for Drovers, the village still retains its two original pubs, both renowned for excellent food and one now offering spa treatments. The village church is reputed to date back to the 5th century with Bronze Age remnants identifiable. The area is surrounded by unspoilt walking trails with the nearby village of Glyn Ceiriog being the main village in the picturesque Ceiriog Valley in Wrexham County, North Wales. This beautiful valley, described by Lloyd George as 'a little piece of heaven on earth’, offers a wealth of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors, from walking and fishing to horse riding and cycling. 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. Nearby, you will find a wide array of attractions, with the dramatic World Heritage Site of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct well worth a visit. Set alongside the boulder-strewn River Dee, why not visit the popular town of Llangollen, famous for the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod? Offering a good range of pubs and restaurants, as well as many interesting shops, the town also boasts a dramatic mountain backdrop. Explore the Dee Valley by steam train or canal boat, or take an exhilarating walk up to Castell Dinas Brân, high above the town to enjoy the breathtaking view! The National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erddig are both within easy driving distance, while a day-long car trip can take you to visit six of the Seven Wonders of Wales. Enjoy a visit to the Old Hill Fort at Oswestry, scenic walking on Offa’s Dyke Path, along the crest of the Clwydian Hills, or access the national rail network to explore the Roman city of Chester, Shrewsbury and beyond. This is a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful region all year round.
