The property

Corwen 5.4 miles.

Boasting contemporary wonder and a stylish interior, Hen Stablau makes a grand base from which to explore the wonders of North Wales.

Suited to a group of eight, the property is perfect for a family getaway enriched with fun and excitement of all kinds.

Step inside to a large hall area, being sure to duck under the stairs before heading into the sitting room for an afternoon of unwinding in front of the woodburning stove; settle down in one of the plush sofas and select a game from the table at the centre of the room, perfect for hours of entertainment for the little ones whilst you get lost in a good book.

Also on the ground floor you will find the kitchen/diner, equipped with all the essentials for your week-long stay, with a large, rustic wooden dining table placed neatly in the corner of the room, providing a great space to gather for picnics, family games nights, and of course toasting to a fantastic holiday.

The property also benefits from a ground-floor bright and airy double bedroom, perfectly suitable for those less mobile so the whole family can come along on the fun-filled trip.

Head up to the first floor to find three more glorious bedrooms, consisting of a further double, a bunk room and the captivating master room of a double featuring a stylish corner window and a freestanding clawfoot bath, a true marvel to the dwelling.

Outside the wonder continues, with a large lawned area where the little ones can play.

This property offers excitement all around.

For all of your local amenities, the charming market town of Corwen hosts a wide selection of shops, local eateries, greengrocers and more to cater for your self-catered stay.

Slightly further afield you can find Betws-y-Coed sat within Snowdonia National Park, a popular tourist base offering a golf course and a Zip World, so you can experience the astounding views from the skies, or choose to ramble by foot to the peak for scenery like no other.

With access to the coast of Colwyn Bay and the historic city of Chester too, Hen Stablau is a great base for exploring 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’.
