  • "Bronwyn was a great host."

    The layout of the cottage suited us well and the view from the garden was superb. Loved that it was close to great walking and had character.

  • "This cottage is in a nice location and well equipped."

    Sadly I could only give 3 stars because the lounge sofa was hard and uncomfortable. Though we only sat on it for a couple of hours in an evening my husband and I both came away with bad backs. I will be seeing my osteopath to get sorted when I get home. Such a shame . This supplied an otherwise very nice holiday.

    Sorry that you found the lounge sofa uncomfortable. I have taken onboard your comments and have just replaced the sofa. Property Owner

  • "Thank-you for the wonderful stay at your lovely cottage Bronwen."

    Everything there was clean and very cosy and comfortable. You went above and beyond to make our stay as stress free as possible. Great location for walking, cycling and the views, especially from the cottage, were amazing. Your Lemon drizzle loaf was lovely and the welcome touch of milk and shortbread biscuits was much appreciated.

    The garden and view is delightful, we enjoyed having a meal or a drink outside. Bronwen is very welcoming and is there if you need anything but keeps a low profile. She even brought us a slice of homemade cake which was delicious and went down well with a cuppa!

  • "A fabulous find."

    A fairly quiet, rural location, not far from Llangollen, with beautiful views. Walking distance to the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct and the Llangollen Canal. Bronwen, the owner, was very welcoming. She was easy to contact, and very helpful with recommendations of where to eat, prior to our stay, and was generally available if we needed anything, though not at all intrusive. The cottage had everything we needed, and more, making it easy to stay in and eat if we wanted to.

  • "A return stay at this little gem."

    Very comfortable, clean with clearly a lot of thought gone into making everything so nice. Great location as you can walk in every direction from the cottage. A beautiful part of the world. So much to do and see if you like wildlife, nature, golf, cycling or watersports. We hope to return next year.

    Stunning views Lovley garden full of wildlife. When the sun shines the garden is a sun trap it was Lovley to sit out side with a coffee just watching the wildlife. The cottage is well equipped if you don’t want to eat out we cooked a some nice meals. Its a nice spacious cottage. The bathroom is lovey and always warm the shower is perfect no messing with the temperature. The heating is amazing a couple of nights it turned cold we popped the heating on and it got hot straight away I wish my heating at home was as good . I am looking at booking here again fingers crossed if nothing changes next year , I highly recommend this cottage we had a perfect weeks stay .

  • "A beautiful well equipped, immaculately clean cottage."

    A south facing patio with exceptional views from the garden, which we were fortunate to take full advantange of because of such good weather. Also same wonderful views from the kitchen and lounge. Lovely walks from the cottage such as the amazing Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and along the canal to LLangollen town. Two supermarkets within two to three miles and pubs for reasonably priced meals even closer. Although Bronwen the owner lived in the cottage attached she was not in the slightest intrusive. All the local people were extremely friendly. We always read the reviews that people make before we book any cottage, however, in all honesty, we loved the cottage and the area and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending 'The Cottage' to our family and friends, or anyone else! We most definitely will return. Many thanks Bronwen and our best wishes to you too.

    Views from upstairs lounge are amazing. Comfortable, peaceful, very well equipped and a good shower. New boiler providing excellent heating and hot water. So many interesting places to visit - breakfast in the Ponderosa on top of the horseshoe pass a must, especially if the wind is gale force!!! Walk the viaducts and canal paths, calling in at well placed watering holes along the way. Friendly host a mine of local information, and makes really good cake. Thank you Bronwen for sharing your cottage.

    Walking over the aqueduct provides splendid views of the river Dee and the surrounding hills. It was our first visit to Llangollen and we found it a lovely location with nice places to eat and plenty to see and do. We took the opportunity to take the short journey to visit the lovely city of Chester and to spend time at Chester zoo. The Flat at The Cottage is well fitted out with all the facilities you need for a week's holiday. There are good views from the garden and plenty of opportunities for walkers. We met the owner who lives in The Cottage. Bronwen is very nice and willing to help with any questions relating to the flat and the area. We would certainly choose to stay there again and recommend it to any couple wanting a nice quiet place to stay. We were fortunate to enjoy a week of sunshine making our holiday most enjoyable.
