The property

This is a converted old mill last working in the 1940’s, on the edge of the village of Carrog in North Wales, between the towns of Corwen and Llangollen.

This is a beautiful cottage with many original features including exposed stone walls and original character beams as well as original slate flagged floors.

Set in a great position to explore this wonderful part of the country, Yr Hen Felin is a great place for families or groups of friends.

Entering through the stable door takes you into a hallway with space for hanging coats and storing boots.

This then leads you through to the open plan living area with a good-sized dining table and seating area.

The kitchen is well-equipped, with everything needed for some good home-cooked food, with a shower room leading off this for extra flexibility.

Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms with a family bathroom also, all with exposed beams and quirky little windows.

Further up, on the second floor, is a large games room with everything needed to keep the kids or adults alike occupied.

There is a pool table and a piano as well as a 55” television to enjoy, or just relax on the comfy sofas looking out to the views of the countryside.

The cottage is just a few minutes’ walk from the village of Carrog which is home to a friendly pub serving good food where you can sit and dine whilst overlooking the River Dee and the beautiful rolling hills across the valley.

The village is also home to a station on the Llangollen Heritage Steam Railway line, so why not step back in time and pop on a steam train to Llangollen, home to a white-water rafting and canoeing centre, an annual Eisteddfod and the World Heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

Alternatively, head to Corwen, a lovely market town with a good selection of shops and pubs.

Drive past Corwen to the Rhug Estate and its fabulous organic farm shop and restaurant, or head deeper into Wales to discover Bala Lake, Betws-y-Coed and the whole of the Snowdonia National Park.

This is a superb holiday cottage in an excellent location for the outdoor adventurer and is also the perfect destination for those simply seeking a unique, luxury holiday in the heart of North Wales.

About the location


Corwen 3 miles; Llangollen 8 miles; Bala 14 miles.

Carrog is a very pretty village set on the banks of the River Dee which is home to a local pub that serves food, as well the Carrog Bridge which was built in 1660. It is a quaint picturesque village in the county of Denbighshire and is surrounded by the Berwyn Mountain range offering spectacular views. The Carrog steam railway station is part of the Llangollen Railway which runs from Corwen to Llangollen. Corwen is immersed in history and heritage; learn about Owain Glyndwr, the self-proclaimed Prince of Wales, explore beautiful Rug Chapel and Langar Church, or climb through the heather to one of the most important Iron Age hill forts, Caer Drewyn, built around 800 BC. Take a horse-drawn canal boat from Llangollen and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pontcysyllte, Britain’s largest aqueduct. Visit the National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erdigg, explore the atmospheric ruins of Cistercian Valle Crucis Abbey and Castell Dinas Brân. Foodies can visit the nearby Rhug Estate, one of the largest organic properties in the UK and dine at Tyddyn Llan in nearby Llandrillo, considered to be one of Wales' finest restaurants.
