    “Stunning conversion of an Alms house.”

    Every bit of Quirkyness has been sympathetically left for your enjoyment and pleasure from the un even floor boards to the stairs. Plus all mod cons . We even had a sneaky preview at the on going conversion to the rest of the building and the "den" over the central archway. You must also walk up Pen Y Pigyn and see the breath taking view.

The property

A rustic, slate-built holiday cottage tucked away in a courtyard garden in woodland setting, just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of the popular town of Corwen.

This characterful cottage is nestled in a shared garden alongside another holiday cottage, and looks out onto a picturesque lawn garden with a private seating area to enjoy the peaceful surroundings in full.

Many original features of this early 18th century former alms house are retained throughout, adding to the traditional feel of this family retreat.

Set over two floors, the ground floor consists of a well-furnished kitchen containing feature pieces like a traditional Belfast sink and Everhot electric cooker with social dining area for all the guests to relax over a casual evening meal.

The sitting room benefits from original sash windows that beautifully complement the woodburning stove set in an inglenook hearth as a centerpiece of the room.

The homely aura makes this a perfect place to sit and relax into the evening.

Upstairs the original wooden flooring continues the style of the house, leading into a spacious bathroom with cast iron roll top bath and separate shower cubicle, located next to the master bedroom, which includes a king-size bed.

At the other end of the landing is a family room with double bed and single bed, great for children and couples or a young family to share.

This superb grade 2 star listed building is ideal for a family holiday in the beautiful Welsh countryside.

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 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. 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’.
