  • "A perfectly placed cottage with lots to do within a short walk or drive, fantastic panoramic walks available from the door, approximately a mile to the world heritage site aquaduct."

    Bronwen is a fantastic hostess with a wealth of local knowledge and has stocked the cottage with everything you might need, including a fabulous selection of local walks and tourist information for the area. Local shops and takeaways deliver to the property. It's cosy, peaceful and has some fantastic views across the Dee valley.

  • "A very comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings."

    This is a professionally presented holiday cottage thanks to the owner Bronwen and her housekeeper. An ideal location for exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site which is the Llangollen Canal within a 15 minute walking distance; with the Offa's Dyke footpath similarly located. A good selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes close by; all with good food and welcoming staff

  • "Very pleasant property, tranquil and with lovely views across the valley."

    Owner very helpful. One slight drawback was that there was nowhere to eat within easy walking distance so we had to drive into Llangollen in the evening. However, this did not spoil our holiday.

  • "Perfect location for a peaceful break in beautiful countryside setting ."

    The cottage kitchen is equipped with everything you need and more. The living room is upstairs and the views from the comfort of the sofa are stunning. The bed is comfy and the bathroom shower is powerful. We had the benefit of great weather so after a days sightseeing in Llangollen and beyond we were able to sit out on the patio .Bronwen is a perfect host , the milk and shortbread left for us on arrival was much appreciated. In my opinion the website photos do not do this beautiful property justice .

  • "The property has outstanding long reaching views but that does mean it's a bit of a climb upto the property by car and then a short private driveway down to the property which may require some caution depending on what type of car you drive."

    There were some walks from the door. Wi-Fi worked well. Bathroom was slightly eclectic but worked fine. Staircase is narrow and steep and there are steps upto the bedroom. The landing floor is topsy turvy but it's an old cottage. Bedroom is comfortable with nice furnishings. The kitchen has everything you need and more! There were far too many items of crockery in the cupboards so you had practically nowhere to store food. Recent hob and oven so both very clean. Nice outdoor table and chairs. We had a good week rarely using the car.

  • "We loved out stay in Llangollen."

    Plenty to do in the area even though the weather was quite wet when we stayed there. Lots of lovely walks and interesting places to see. Highlights were walking over the Pontcysillitis aqueduct, walks along the Llangollen canal both ways, walking along the Offa`s Dyke over the hills to Llangollen , climbing up to Castell Dinas Bran ( not for the faint hearted ), visiting Plas Newydd House and a lovely walk to the Horseshoe Falls and back. When the rain was heavy we just enjoyed relaxing in the lovely warm lounge at the cottage and looking out of the window at the gorgeous view. The kitchen was very well equipped and we did quite a bit of cooking while we were there. Very quiet location and peaceful holiday which was what we needed.

  • "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

    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 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.
