    Lots of wildlife to see too. Horse riding close by at Springhill farm which allowed me to fully appreciate the beauty of the ceiriog valley. All in all, a fantastic holiday.

The property

Glyn Ceiriog 2 miles.

This lovely, detached, characterful cottage is set in a peaceful rural location, with stunning views of the rolling hills of the Ceiriog Valley, two miles from the bustling former slate mining village, Glyn Ceiriog.

Dating back to the 1600s, this splendid cottage has been lovingly renovated to a high standard in order to provide excellent, contemporary accommodation, yet retains lots of lovely original features, including an inglenook fireplace housing a warming woodburning stove, exposed beams and slate flooring.

With walks from the doorstep and an open stream running through the garden, this charming property is ideal for an away-from-it-all holiday with your family or friends, to be remembered for years to come.

Downstairs the property offers a handy utility room, great for storing those muddy walking boots, as well as a cosy sitting room boasting a fairy tale stone fireplace framing a striking white woodburning stove, ideal to snuggle up in front of with a good book and your favourite tipple after a bracing walk in the country.

This room leads through into a snug, where you can retreat to in the evening and swap stories late into the night.

There’s also a convenient bathroom on the ground floor, as well as a light and airy open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a homely feel and double aspect views of the lush garden and the mountains in the distance.

From this room you can also see the spacious patio, a great place to sit in the morning and plan your day’s activities, or gather in the evening with your loved ones and a glass of something cool in hand.

The first floor has large and welcoming bedrooms, both with beams set into the eaves, king-size beds and white cotton bedding.

A shower room completes this lovely country accommodation.

The surrounding area offers amazing views and excellent opportunities for walking and cycling amongst the hills and woodlands all around.

You could also enjoy a spot of clay pigeon shooting, or even exhilarating whitewater rafting, tranquil fly fishing or horse riding.

The bustling town of Llangollen is also within driving distance, where a great day out can be had perusing the tiny independent shops, or stopping for tea and cakes in a café.

The impressive Chirk Castle is also well worth a visit, surrounded by fields grazed by black sheep and offering splendid walks amongst 480 acres of woodland.

A modern, yet charming cottage nestled in the Welsh countryside, ideal for a holiday at any time of year.

About the location

GLYN CEIRIOG

Llangollen 5 miles; Chirk 6 miles; Oswestry 9 miles.

Glyn Ceiriog is 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. Glyn Ceiriog is a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful region all year round.
