  • "We stayed with our 3 children and small dog."

    We found the house to be comfortable, cozy and met all our needs. The kitchen was well stocked and the house was a good size. We walked by the river just outside the house, went to Llangollen and canoed across the aqueduct. Visited the steam train and stopped for lots of holiday ice cream. I would recommend this house for a family holiday.

    Thank you for your kind feedback & we are glad you all enjoyed your stay at Pen y Bont. All the best & Merry Christmas Property Owner

    Our holiday was different this year we just needed a quiet place to relax. We couldn't have chosen anywhere nicer than Pen Y Bont. Super comfy beds, and sofas in all rooms. It's relaxing watching the different birds that visit the garden and buzzards circling. There was a variety of games and books for all ages. The cottage is equipped with absolutely everything you need and more!!! The kindness of the owners went over and above, without being intrusive. We would highly recommend Pen Y Bont. Sonia

  • "Our stay at Pen Y Bont exceeded all of our expectations."

    The cottage is beautifully set. I was able, each morning, to sit on a couch looking out through a glass wall over the patio to a stream and beyond that to a hill and watch birds coming to feed, squirrels scurrying around, a hare bouncing through the field and sheep and lambs grazing. Then during the rest of the day, there are numerous walks, heritage railways, former mines and castles to explore or one can sit at the patio table and eat and drink. The cottage is incredibly well equipped and generously proportioned. We were a party of three adults and there was never a feeling of being 'on top of one' another. The final bit of praise I have is for the owners, Lynn and Guy. They were so welcoming and generous (they ended up taking our shopping delivery in and putting the refrigerated and frozen food away for nus since we were running late) and, at the same time, we never felt that our privacy was intruded upon. In fact, quite to the contrary.

    Oh my goodness. What extremely kind feedback. We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay & hope to welcome you back again. Thank you Property Owner

    The cottage is spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped with amazing views across the valley from the 360 degree view window with an abundance of wildlife and walks from the doorstep. It's so relaxing and a real get away from it all spot, with loads to do and see in the surrounding areas, to then return to the cottage to chill and watch the wildlife. We were lucky to experience the lamb and daffodil season which was a big plus for us. The local pubs are terrific - friendly serving amazing food. I recommend The Hand at Llanarmon - the best and tastiest Sunday lunch we've ever had. I could go on and on, but go experience it for yourself and you will see what I mean! Thank you Lynn and Guy for a warm welcome and much appreciated welcome pack, we can't wait to return!

    We were here 2 years ago and had another hot week this year. It was lovely to have good weather but the cottage is exceptional. It is very peaceful and away from it all. The high land around it makes phone reception non existent but it is so quiet and the wildlife is a delight. From the birds in the garden, we had a pheasant wandering around in the evening with his family, and often buzzards could be seen circling the valley. The stream running through the garden was so relaxing in the evening with a nice glass of wine. Most days we took our hound for a walk up the hill past the farm on the track through an old quarry. You need to be aware that there are sheep in this area so a long lead is a good idea unless you have an exceptionally well trained dog. We only went out once for a meal and that was to The Hand hotel which is very popular locally. The meal there was one of the best we have had and there was definitely service with a smile and very dog friendly. We were made very welcome when we first arrived with milk, butter, welsh cakes and fresh farm eggs from the hens. Altogether a very relaxing break and Lynn and Guy are a most welcoming and helpful couple.

    The only thing that wasn’t quite the same was taken from a few of the reviews...which say the garden was great for dogs as it was fully enclosed. The cottage description hadn’t said that so it’s not the owners fault but just to point out that the stream isn’t enclosed so once in the stream, the dog can just walk along it and put onto the farm road. The rest of the garden is fully fenced but we couldn’t leave our golden retriever out in the garden without constant supervision as he would just walk alongside the stream and out! Saying that, the cottage, garden and surroundings were just so super relaxing and stunningly peaceful that the enclosed garden thing didn’t matter really. Everything was well catered for and really clean and there was enough broad band to keep our teen son happy! Would definitely recommend Pen Y Bont for a rural getaway.

The little stream just running through the garden and by the side of the house just adds to the peaceful beauty of the place.

    The house itself is immaculately clean and well maitained, with lovely little like the herb garden, a little stream that run through the back garden with such a peaceful sound to the floor to ceiling glass wall in the kitchen giving you views out to the beautiful garden and surrounding countryside. The cottage is out from the village but is in easy driving distance of several little towns and villages. There are several walks that can be taken from the cottage around the surrounding fields and hills. We will definately be coming back and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

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.

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.
