    “Tastefully decorated with lots of pictures and mirrors, really lovely with beautiful views from all aspects.”

    Kitchen area full of all you need and we made good use of the hob having been converted to the joys of halogen! plus free range eggs from their chickens and home made cakes and scones on arrival which was very welcoming. ...

    Kitchen area full of all you need and we made good use of the hob having been converted to the joys of halogen! plus free range eggs from their chickens and home made cakes and scones on arrival which was very welcoming. Lovely bathroom with excellent shower and deep bath to luxuriate in. Small but adequate tv in cosy lounge area. Pretty bedrooms with lots of storage and hanging area. Pretty tea sets and lots of seating and areas to sit and read or do jigsaws within cottage. A pretty outside area with table and chairs to sit and eat al fresco..would have been nice to have had a lounger or two in situ in the lower garden area to relax in privacy in the sunshine with a book and a glass of fizz. Surrounding area beautiful though roads a little tricky and single file if following sat nav so stick to main roads to Oswestry and Llangollen, both lovely towns with plenty of shops and cafes. Izi and David are great hosts and at hand if you need anything. They live right next door so plenty of opportunities to catch them for a chat when passing. Would highly recommend this cottage for a chilled break.

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.
