  • "This was our second visit to this cottage and we simply love it."

    The location is excellent amid beautiful countryside and right next to the canal towpath. The cottage is spotlessly clean and well equipped and the owners are very welcoming. We couldn’t have asked for more! Highly recommended.

  • "Bigger than the pictures suggest."

    Very comfy beds. Completely enclosed garden, ideal for dogs, and use of adjacent field when cattle are not grazing. Great views and right on footpath for easy 40 mins walk to Llangollen and short walk to The Sun pub.

  • "We had a fantastic week at Bryn Howell stables."

    The cottage was very clean, comfortable and has the most beautiful views up the valley. The little touches in the cottage were so appreciated, like the dog bowls and towels by the door. The surrounding area is such a great area, with lots to do especially with a dog and 2 young children. We will definitely be returning, thank you!

  • "Such a lovely cottage."

    We had such a wonderful stay. Very picturesque and the owners had provided lots of useful information as well as a home made Victoria sponge cake on arrival! Couldn't recommend highly enough. Beds were comfortable, lovely wood burner in the lounge for cosy nights in. The kitchen was well stocked, we had everything we needed to do a lovely roast. Water pressure was fab. Internet didn't work the last few days, but we enjoyed being unplugged anyway.

  • "Very spacious,, almost suitable for a family, but small kitchen/diner for this."

    Nice king size bed and comfy duvet. Warm once aired, but initially cold. Some of the items had signs of wear and tear. Extensive inventories of equipment, DVDs and books, but more quantity than interesting choice for guests encountering adverse weather. The tourist information was comprehensive, but, particularly as staycationing is likely to remain popular, needs updating as many outlets now are no longer trading. Overall still good, but a one-off update(more time than money)in a few areas would improve things significantly for guests. A great location for canal walks to either Llangollen or Aquaduct. Would like to return in summer.

    Thank you for your comments. I have now updated the tourist information. We do have lots of DVDs, books and games and hope everybody will find something to entertain them. Property Owner

  • "This was our second visit to this cottage and we still really enjoyed our stay."

    Nice welcome with a homemade cake and even fresh milk to make that first drink. The cottage is very comfortable and being able to sit in with the log burner and warm central heating was excellent since the weather, as to be expected this time of year, was cold and wet. It is ideally situated for walks along the canal and local shopping in nearby Llangollen. Good base for touring and visiting the beautiful area. Well worth a visit.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at Bryan Howell Stables."

    Loved the log burner fire,, especially after long winter days out , great to relax in front of in the evenings. Also great that you could just help yourself to the logs in the barn. Very comfortable place to stay, lovely views, ideally located to visit surrounding areas / Snowdonia etc. Owners available if you needed them, and very friendly, plus the cake was lovely !! Would definitely recommend to friends / family to stay.

    Beautiful surroundings and a very homely cottage with everything you need included. Open fire so cosy, beds are so comfortable, Kitchen has everything you need. You get a lovely warm welcome from the owners and home made cake waiting for you on arrival which may i add was very yummy. We didn't experience any problems what so ever with the cottage but the owners are on hand if needed. If you consider booking you won't be disappointed so much to do in this location and there are some lovely walks. Just a lovely getaway to relax and unwind.

    Set in beautiful countryside, with dog walks right on the doorstep. Good location for local attractions, and all the information on those attraction is supplied in the cottage.

  • "This cottage was an absolute gem."

    The photos online don't really do it justice. We wanted a holiday in beautiful countryside with plenty of interesting walks around but close enough to a town (Llangollen) and a few attractions. This was perfect. We walked quite a few miles along the canal and saw the amazing aquaduct. We also visited Chester zoo, Snowdonia, Conwy castle and Portmeirion. In the evening we played family games instead of our usual telly habit. We only managed to see our host Celia just as we were leaving but she lovely and really made sure we had everything we needed.

    Perfectly placed for visiting Snowdonia and the North Wales coast, as well as Chester and Shropshire. The cottage has three spacious bedrooms and the beds were very comfortable. We took most of our meals on the terrace, soaking up the sun and the gorgeous views while the dog played safely in the enclosed garden. Highly recommended.

    Originally furnished and fitted to a high standard but showing some minor issues of wear and tear. However still remains a lovely place to stay and welcomed with a home made sponge cake and a ready prepared tea tray. You may wonder where you are going as the last couple of hundred yards are along a farm track but the cottage and the views are well worth it.

    The cottage is comfy and immaculately clean. Situated close to the canal enabling you to walk into Llangollen (2.5 miles) and to the viaduct the other way (2 miles) there is also a pub within a 10 minute walk. You have use of an enclosed field opposite the cottage, great for letting the dog play. There is so much more to see in the area and walks we didn't get around to, a week wasn't long enough and we plan a return visit in the future. Thanks to the owners for the warm welcome and cake!

    Unmade road to cottage is narrow and rough but well worth the short drive. Cottage has everything you need, is really comfortable and very dog friendly.

Hope to return in the future.

    When you wake up in the morning there is nothing to hear other than sheep and the odd canal boat passing by. I wouldn’t recommend counting on 2 adults fitting in to the middle bedroom as it is very small, but as our party was just 4 adults anyway that wasn’t an issue for us as we just used the 2 larger bedrooms. The kitchen is fitted out with high quality appliances and plenty of crockery & utensils. Really enjoyed our stay overall in this lovely cottage!

    The cottage has everything that anyone could need for a relaxing or energetic holiday. We had a wonderful week at the cottage - very little light pollution so the stars were visible - it's warm and cosy (we didn't use or need to use the wood burning stove) with plenty of reading material available if you forget to take a book. The kitchen is very well equipped, the lounge delightful and the bedrooms cosy and comfortable. Parking isn't a problem, and garden is enclosed which is ideal if you have a family pet, and the cottage really is dog friendly. We had a couple of meals in the very nearby hotel (Bryn Howel) and enjoyed the walks along the canal to both Llangollen and Trevor Basin for the Pontcysllte Aqueduct. If you've never had a canal boat holiday it's possible to hire a day-boat from Anglo-Welsh at Trevor Basin; take a picnic and enjoy the experience!

  • "Perfect holiday property, especially if you want somewhere quite."

    We took our grandchildren, one seven years old and the other nearly five, they absolutely loved it, it was safe for them to run around the garden which was enclosed. The canal was only 20 yards away but was completely safe because it was fenced off but you could still see the barges gliding by. There is a tow path next to the canal that goes on for miles which is lovely to walk along, you can reach Llangollen in approx 40 to 50 mins walk along the tow path around 2 1/2 miles. Finally the cottage is clean and well equipped and the owners who live in their own property behind the cottage are on hand too give advice and guidance on the best things to do.
