  • "What a beautiful place to stay!"

    Absolutely stunning cottage and such lovely hosts. We will DEFINITELY stay here again. Beautifully decorated and furnished and extremely cosy and comfortable. A few cobwebs in the main bedroom (but we know that is to be expected in an old property and it certainly has not put us off staying there again).

  • "Absolutely gorgeous cottage and ideally located."

    Really warm and snug!!! We couldn't fault anything about the decor and comfort of the cottage and it was immaculately clean. Just a very small observation. Personally, we would have preferred a small slimline dishwasher and not such a large fridge freezer. However, this would not deter us from staying in the cottage in the future. We absolutely loved it.

  • "The cottage was perfect for our long weekend break."

    Ideal location, access to the main street via the alley/courtyard. The cottage was spotless with everything you could possibly need inside. The owners even put some fresh milk in the fridge for our arrival. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay there again.

    ) situated very close to the centre of Llangollen but set back in a quiet location. Ideally situated for the nearby steam railway, canal side walks and the Pontcysyllte viaduct etc. Fabulous bathroom and comfortable bed.

    Cottage has been beautifully renovated with lovely decor throughout and was immaculately clean. Gets a big 10 out of 10 from me. The only thing missing was a dishwasher, but hubby came with, so we had that covered!

    Thank you for your positive feedback. I agree about the dishwasher & have been thinking of ways we can fit one into the small kitchen space. Regards Tricia Property Owner

  • "A beautiful property and I’d happily recommend it."

    We couldn’t get the electric fire to turn on at all. The radiator in the lounge on the bedroom wall worked intermittently. A kitchen tap dripped. Plenty of towels available which was great Also, we didn’t realise until the last day that games were available in the lounge cupboard. Might be worth noting something in the welcome book None of these are criticisms. Just giving feedback in case the owner was unaware.

    The electric fire has a switch on the side to turn it on, just tried it and working perfectly, the radiator needed bleeding & the tap needed a washer. All sorted now. Thanks for the positive feedback. Regards Tricia Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely 3 night break at Dovetail cottage this week."

    Beautiful little hidden gem tucked away in llangollen village. Spotlessly clean & plenty of room. The only negative comment would be that the rocky driveway down to the cottage is very uneven & my small car got stuck on the rocks at one point. If the driveway was levelled out, I would say the whole experience would have been perfect. Nevertheless we had a lovely comfortable stay & will be returning.

  • "Excellent property, really comfortable and central."

    The property is beautiful and the mezzanine level is gorgeous. Had a very restful and relaxed time which is exactly what we needed. The only issue is the access to the Parking space which was in need of holes being filled in, it was quite difficult to get down in the car as it is very narrow too. Would definitely recommend to everyone and we hope to return one day soon.

    The cottage was lovely and so central for everything in Llangollen. It was clean, comfortable and had everything you'd need. I was also pleased that there was space for my little car at the rear of the cottage! If you had more than one car we noticed that there is parking for £4 a day at the church hall across the road, which would be handy! Lovely pubs in Llangollen (The Corn Mill and Three Eagles were perfect). We also did the Pen y Coed woodland trust walk on a sunny day which was beautiful and only down the road (loads of bluebells). Chirk Castle only a short drive away and well worth the visit!

  • "Would return to this area and accommodation."

    We were there for a Steampunk Festival so did not get the chance to visit some of the other attractions in the area. The flat is an old stone built property adjacent to the owners home. Really good location for the town. Shops, cafes , restaurants etc all very close by. Was given good instructions on how to find the property although found the lane leading to it a bit scary to negotiate. Steep track with the restricted view when leaving and pulling out onto the road. Although the property sleeps four, and is big enough to accommodate four, the two beds on the mezzanine floor are obviously open and not very private , which some people may find awkward. As there was only two of us this was not a problem. Also the fridge freezer takes up a lot of space and prevents a fourth person sitting at the table. Comfortable bed with nice bedding and a all round nicely furnished property. Some of the furniture has been updated since the photos on Sykes website. Homely feel to the place. Not suitable for anyone with mobility disabilities due to the steps at the front and steep lane at the back. Had a great weekend and would recommend

    Each morning I came to take a shower, only to find 2 - 3 alive woodlice in the bottom of the shower cubicle. These would removed humanely using toilet paper, but I suspect they are getting up inside the drain. Parking is also a problem, with very limited space outside the property - it can take two 'supermini' type cars, but would not fit a people carrier or long estate car. Otherwise facilities were very good.

    The location was great , really central. The quality of the workmanship of the renovation and also the furniture , bedding etc was excellent. Didn't really use any of the cooking facilities so.cant really comment on the microwave or oven but everything was there that you could need. Even the settee ( which I thought looked uncomfortable initially ) was actually quite fitting in the room and we both fell asleep on it so no problems there . The cornmill for food was amazing and fouzis cafe was excellent for service coffee and cake :)

    More style than substance. Lovely oak furniture but it was just the little things: the kettle didn't reach boiling point to make a decent cup of tea; the settee and armchairs were not comfortable; the tv remote was reluctant to work properly; lovely new bathroom but no shelves to put stuff on, nowhere in the splendid shower to put stuff, no hooks to hang a robe or clothes on. Very convenient location for Llangollen and very central for touring North Wales.
