  • "Great property in a stunning location, giving easy access for touring the area."

    I can imagine it being brilliant in summer to just sit out and relax and soak up the surrounding vista.

    Very idyllic and quiet. Just like we like. Wasn't best week with weather but the log burner and hot tub were ideal. Our cockapoo loved the big secure garden. Darren the owner was really helpful. We will be going back.

    Property was very nice open and clean the kitchen was stunning beds were very comfortable and hot tub was unreal the garden area was very safe and secure and our dogs loved the space and freedom also you can hear the stream on a night which was lovely and relaxing only downsides for us was no washing machine with 4 kids and 2 dogs was hard and having to buy bottled water for cooking,dog water and drinking and hot drinks could do with options of single beds as our older kids didn't like sharing and could do with more storage in bedrooms but overall a great holiday home

  • "We loved it at Cae Iocyn."

    Our dog loved running and rolling on the grass. It was great to sit outside to eat or with a cuppa or a nice cold drink. We watched Red Kites flying over and Swifts that I think next at the nearby Aquaduct (which we walked over, but I'm not keen on heights!). The hot tub is amazing. The views are gorgeous. The sounds of the birds are so peaceful. The shower is great, as is the smart TV with apps for Netflix and Prime. We wished we could stay for longer. A week just wasn't enough. We very much look forward to booking to go again.

    Everything you could want was there and the welcome pack left by owners was very appreciated. . Even the dog was not forgotten with the treats left

  • "Could not ask for a better trip away, the place is incredible!"

    The house is on its own, no one near by and completely enclosed by fences for your pets to run free. The perfect place to get away from the world and relax, the views are so nice. The owners are extremely kind and provide everything you need for the length you’re staying. I recommend 1000x times over!

  • "This cottage is absolutely gorgeous, the views from the lounge and hot tub are so beautiful."

    The garden is huge and fully fenced so our Newfie was able to race around whilst we chilled in the hot tub. The cottage was so clean, plenty of wood for the fire if needed, the host Darren was so lovely and anything you needed or weren’t sure about he was so happy to help. I would definitely recommend staying here, some gorgeous walks around also. We will be coming back!

  • "We had a fantastic time."

    What a beautiful, peaceful location. The hosts were brilliant, sending information videos for the heating and hot tub and instructions on how to find the property. When we needed their help with a poorly child they came straight away. We had a great stay and really enjoyed it. Lots of space outside for the children to play, lots around locally to visit too. We took our dog with us and wasn’t stuck for places to go, in fact there were more we wanted to do and hope to go back next year. The house was clean and well kept, one of the beds was a little lumpy but I’ve slept in worse, the other beds were great. The hot tub was amazing and lots of games to play on a night and a large tv to watch. We bought a football for the kids and they played out in the garden while we relaxed. Highly recommend!

    We were met by Becky who showed us around and how to work the heating (if required) hot tub etc. The property was excellent, spotlessly clean, constant hot water, comfy beds, soft towels and fully equipped kitchen. A nice touch was the unexpected welcome pack. Darren made us feel we were very welcome guests and the quiet location of the cottage ensured we had a most relaxing holiday.

The property

Perched on the outskirts of Chirk in Wrexham, North Wales, is this superb, three-bedroom stone-built cottage dating back to 1650c, Cae Iocyn.

Enjoying an isolated location with peaceful surroundings and beautiful country views, Cae Iocyn is a fabulous dwelling for a group or family of six and their four-legged friends to explore this delightful part of North Wales in their own rural retreat.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where you can look forward to whipping up flavourful culinary delights in the well-equipped kitchen, with the help of the electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer and microwave, as well as a dishwasher for a fuss-free clean up!

Gather around the dining table for six as you tuck-in to a tasty meal and make plans for the days ahead.

If the weather is nice, why not throw open the bi-fold doors and make dinner an alfresco affair out on the lovely picnic bench, giving your furry friends some time to stretch their legs in the large, enclosed garden or enjoy the hot tub.

As the evening cools, retreat to one of two sofas and snuggle up to watch your favourite film on the Smart TV in the warmth of the woodburning stove.

Climb the stairs to the first floor where you will discover three well-presented bedrooms, three doubles, all served by a contemporary bathroom with beautiful corner bath for long indulgent soaks, as well as a walk-in shower for those speedy rinses!

Explore the local area, where you will find a fantastic selection of things to do right on your doorstep including the Chirk Trout Farm for the keen anglers in your party, leisurely walks along the River Ceiriog or for something more challenging the Start of Maelor Way and the 82-mile Offas Dyke footpath.

Just a short walk away is the stunning National Trust owned, Chirk Castle, which is 700 years old and offers glorious, manicured garden and suits of armour within its historic interior.

Wander into the centre of Chirk where you will find the Chirk Aqueduct boasting stunning views over the river and out towards the lush Welsh countryside.

Here you will find a local history museum where you can delve into the town’s past, the magnificent 14th-century Plas Newydd Historic House & Gardens and the Llangollen Heritage Railway, where you can sit back and relax on a vintage steam train as you soak up the sites of the River Dee and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For an unforgettable getaway, choose Cae Iocyn.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location


Llangollen 5 miles.

The small border town of Chirk (Welsh spelling: Y Waun) stands on the escarpment above where the rivers Ceiriog and Dee meet, and is referred to as The Gateway to Wales. Most famous for its magnificent 14th century castle and gardens, one of many built throughout Wales by Edward I, Chirk boasts a wonderful aqueduct, designed by Thomas Telford, a selection of pleasant pubs and restaurants, convenience stores, chemist, gift shop, coffee shops, local butcher's, greengrocers, bakery, an excellent golf course and marina. The surrounding area, notably the beautiful Ceiriog Valley described by Lloyd George as “a little bit of heaven on Earth”, provides wonderful walks and cycling, including the famous Offa's Dyke Pathway, and local trout fishing. Only five miles from charming Llangollen, with its stream railway, watersports, famous Eisteddfod, Castell Dinas Bran, Valle Crucis Abbey and scenic Horseshoe Pass. Also five miles is the market town of Oswestry with its iron age hillfort, and within easy reach is the Roman walled city of Chester with its famous zoo and the medieval town of Shrewsbury, both only half an hour by train or car from Chirk. The beautiful Lake Vyrnwy and Llanrheadr waterfall are also within an hours drive. This great location has plenty to see and do for all the family!
