  • “Amazing Family House”
    We stayed in this large spacious house near Oswestry with our four children, their spouses and 5 grandchildren under three. There was lots of communal space to spread out in when the weather wasn't good. the games room was a fantastic resource. En suite to all large rooms was wonderful in the morning. ...
    We stayed in this large spacious house near Oswestry with our four children, their spouses and 5 grandchildren under three. There was lots of communal space to spread out in when the weather wasn't good. the games room was a fantastic resource. En suite to all large rooms was wonderful in the morning. The grounds outside allowed custard trails in the woods, cricket of a sort on the lawn, trike riding on the tennis court, dinosaur egg hunts and relaxing in the hot tub. With National Trust cards we managed to go somewhere everyday for free and would especially recommend the Ironworks Centre. A great week. Thanks to all who made it possible.

The property

Ellesmere 4 miles.

Plas Yolyn is a luxurious stately home, steeped in history and situated 4 miles from Ellesmere in Shropshire.

Striking an imposing image as you first enter the impressive grounds, this Grade II* listed property dates back to the 17th century and has been variously connected to the Sheriff of Shropshire, Oliver Cromwell and Welsh royalty during its colourful existence.

Having been carefully renovated and restored in recent times, the original architecture and decorative features of this magnificent property have been retained to provide an impressive holiday home with more than a touch of class and luxury, including a bubbling hot tub and a two person sauna.

The gravel drive sweeps round to the house with its impressive facade and the heavy wooden door leads into a grand entrance hall, furnished with a baby grand piano and leather conversation sofas placed in front of a large woodburner.

To the left is an impressive banqueting hall with wood-panelled walls, with room enough for the whole party to sit comfortably, whilst to the right there is a drawing room with garden doors onto the patio, not to mention gorgeous original sash windows and shutters, as well as a roaring open fire.

The country kitchen forms a central hub around the generous breakfast table and oak rocking chair, warmed by an original oil AGA and retaining a splendid red quarry tile floor and exposed oak beams, complemented by modern granite work tops.

There’s also a cosy snug just perfect for reading, again enjoying a warming woodburner and this room leads through to two stylish ground floor bedrooms, both with en-suite shower facilities.

The first floor is accessed from either the main staircase or the secret former servant’s staircase, both of which lead up to five well-proportioned and beautifully-presented bedrooms, all boasting en-suite shower facilities and garden views.

In addition, a spacious family bathroom offers a free standing bath, a walk-in shower and a two person sauna, whilst there are three further cloakrooms available on the ground floor.

Children and adults alike will enjoy the well-equipped games room with full-size table tennis, Smart TV and many games and toys, ideal for a rainy day's entertainment.

Outside the grounds are equally impressive, covering 10 acres of countryside, with a formal garden to the side of the property, where you will find the hot tub and patio area surrounded by established borders, whilst to the front of the house there’s a croquet lawn, leading to a dried-up leat with lawns stretching beyond.

To the rear of the cottage you will find a hard-standing tennis court and practice wall and an orchard, as well as woodland walks and a pretty lake.

For the more adventurous, perhaps try tackling a section of the nearby Wats Dyke Way, or the Offa's Dyke trail which can be found in Chirk, just five miles away.

This is a truly special property in a fantastic location, sure to leave you with superb memories of a luxurious break away.

About the location

ELLESMERE

Whitchurch 11 miles.

The pretty market town of Ellesmere with its Tudor, Georgian and Victorian buildings quietly nestles between the Shropshire Meres and the well-known Shropshire to Llangollen canal, in an area renowned as Shopshire's Lakeland. Steeped in history and originally fortified as an Anglo-Saxon settlement, this peaceful town boasts a lovely church with a 15th century roof and was home to Thomas Telford during the building of the canal network in the late 18th century. The town also boasts a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as an abundance of entertainment on and around the meres in the surrounding area. Stroll through Cremorne Gardens, go fishing or boating, take some time to explore Colemere Country Park with its wonderful wildlife and scenic walks, or walk along the canal. A lovely location offering something for everyone at any time of year.
