  • "What a beautiful remote Welsh cottage surrounded by stunning scenery."

    Quiet and quaint property with everything that you need for a short stay, only a few miles in either direction for all your amenities Just a little CC, which the owners might like to consider, firstly we were very surprised to find we had to make our own bed. I’ve never had to do this in any accommodation before specially after a long drive, also it might be better if you had a fitted sheet rather than a flat sheet for ease and we found the bed very hard and not comfortable for our tastes so we had to get the quilts from second bedroom to make a mattress topper, which you might like to include, then people can decide for themselves on the firmness of the mattress I would definitely recommend this accommodation and stay again if we were in the area

    Huge apologies for having to make your own bed. This was a lack of communication between my husband and I....the beds are obviously normally made up for guests. So glad this hasn't put you off and we look forward to welcoming you in the future. Property Owner

    Many thanks for your feedback....look forward to welcoming you again Property Owner

  • "The cottage was really cosy and the owners next door were very helpful."

    Set in a beautiful location surrounded by lots of hills and with a view of the river and steam railway line in the distance. The garden was great for the kids to run around in and had two areas for outdoor dining. A few points for improvement … a washing up bowl in the kitchen, as well as a kitchen bin would have been nice. Also the volume control needs to be replaced as certain buttons didn’t work. Also, the shower wasn’t very powerful. Overall though a great stay.

    considering we live next door these points could have been resolved instantly. there has never in 2 years been a complaint about the shower. but thank you for your input Property Owner

  • "This cottage was an absolute delight, full of interesting original features, including a brief history of the building( owner has more details if you want)."

    It is fully equipped, spotless, with everything you need and very comfortable. The garden is amazing with two lovely viewing areas down the valley, including excellent views of the Llangollen railway, perfect to sit and relax. Its location is ideal for touring the local area with lots to see and do. There are plenty of shops nearby to buy food and also lots of places to eat. Would recommend Corn Mill in Llangollen. A most relaxing short break certainly hope to return sometime in the future.

  • "A lovely place to stay in the heart of the Welsh countryside for a family of 4."

    Absolutely beautiful surroundings and good links with places to visit. You're within sight of the river and the surrounding hills. The cottage and its immediate surroundings are steeped in history situated on the manor of Owain Glendwyr, one of the last independent Welsh Princes; the hill behind the house is probably older still. Very helpful owners - we want to return.

    Wonky floors and steep stairs.Comfy bed and fully equipped. Everything you need for a break in this beautiful part of the country. Sam the owner lives next door and is so knowledgable and helpful. Don’t miss a trip to Horseshoe falls and watch the antics of the whitewater rafting. Then a lovely walk along the canal towpath into Llangollen for a lazy lunch. Car parking is very reasonable too. £3 all day!
