    “A tumble dryer would have been very useful as no garden or outside to dry washing”

The property

The Old Bank is a wonderful, 1850s Tudor-style property resting within the centre of Corwen.

Boasting bags of character and wonderful features, this superb base is perfect for a family gathering to this picturesque part of North Wales, with attractions and activities to suit a group of all ages and tastes.

Be welcomed into the spacious entrance hall, where you can kick off your muddy walking boots before spending some quality time with your friends and family.

Venture down to the former bank safe, where you will find a spacious kitchen/diner, offering all the essentials to whip up your own delicious evening meals and enjoy a sociable evening with a glass of something chilled.

Choose to unwind within the characterful sitting room, which houses a wonderful blend of traditional and contemporary; be delighted by the original wood panelling, the high ceilings and the beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows which flood the room with natural light, offering a wonderful space to spend relaxing evenings in with your loved ones.

If you are looking for an hour away from the rest of the group, spend a moment or two within the mezzanine-style sitting room and sink into the faux chesterfield sofa and tune into the Smart TV with Netflix to catch up on all of your favourite TV programs.

At the end of the evening, look forward to retiring to the king-size double bedroom on the first floor, or catch your rest on the ground floor, where you will find an additional king-size double and a double bedroom.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, Corwen boasts a superb selection of traditional pubs, excellent restaurants and takeaways, ensuring something for all tastes.

For those feeling active, the surrounding location offers opportunities for walking, mountain biking and wildlife watching, certain to keep you entertained for hours.

Alternatively, Llangollen Heritage Steam Railway is the more comfortable way to explore this area of natural beauty, or you can take a horse-drawn canal boat from Llangollen and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pontcysyllte.

The Old Bank is a unique getaway for those looking to explore this part of North Wales.

About the location


Llangollen 10 miles; Bala 12 miles; Ruthin 12 miles; Betws-y-Coed 22 miles.

Set in the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, at the meeting point of five river valleys, is the picturesque North Wales market town of Corwen. A charming town offering plenty of local amenities including traditional butchers, greengrocers and bakeries as well as a selection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and a leisure centre, trim trail and children’s play area. Corwen provides everything you need whilst discovering this stunning area. A journey on the Llangollen Heritage Steam Railway, which has now been extended to Corwen, is one of the best ways to see the beautiful views of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in comfort. Take a horse-drawn canal boat from Llangollen and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pontcysyllte, Britain’s largest aqueduct. 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. Visit the National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erddig, 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. The historical town of Ruthin and the town of Bala, with its celebrated lake, offering wonderful watersports, are just twenty minutes away by car. The exhilarating Snowdonia National Park is just fifteen minutes’ drive away; an arena of outdoor adventure just waiting for you to discover, which can also be accessed via the lovely village of Betws-y-Coed, the official 'Gateway to Snowdonia’.
