    “Such a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting , very cosy and was clean and tidy with everything you’d need - hairdryer, iron, bbq etc .”

    The kitchen had plenty of equipment too . Only down side was part of the kitchen ceiling was very low and my husband knocked his head a few times but that can’t be helped as he’s tall anyway .

The cottage

An 18th century, stone-built detached cottage in the sleepy village of Llansilin, 6 miles from Oswestry.

This holiday cottage offers deceptively spacious, high-quality accommodation set amidst the beautiful Welsh countryside, and provides an ideal base for a family walking holiday or a restful break.

This charming and homely cottage boasts exposed beams, oak doors and a woodburning stove, creating a cosy, welcoming atmosphere, whilst the excellent kitchen and bathrooms are perfect for contemporary living.

The cottage stands in its own enclosed grounds with a spacious patio and lawned side garden, both perfect for dining alfresco and enjoying the hillside views after a day walking or cycling.

This cottage is in the perfect location for exploring Wales and Shropshire; with the wonderful lakes Vyrnwy and Bala, Chirk and Powis castles and gardens, the ancient market town of Oswestry and delightful Llangollen with its canal rides, canoeing and whitewater rafting in the River Dee, there is something to do all year round.

Close to this Llansilin cottage are spectacular Pistyll Rhaeadr, Wales's highest waterfall, the Berwyn Mountain range offering stunning scenic walks and cycle trails, and the Ellesmere Lakes, known as Shropshire's Lake District.

A welcoming cottage, ideal for exploring both Wales and England.

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.

Note: Max. 7 people and 1 infant.
