  • "I would highly recommend this beautiful Riverside cottage, it is only 5minutes walk from town, once you have parked up(permit provided by the owner)you literally do not need to use your car again which is bliss."

    ..the cottage has everything you need home from home, and a lovely comfy bed

  • "This was our second stay at 9 Church Street this year."

    The cottage is in an amazing location and guarantees a fabulous week in the beautiful town of Llangollen. The Owner has thought of everything you will need during your stay, and communication with the Owner is a pleasure. Highlights are many, but the views and the sound of the river are incomparable! We had no issues with anything at this 300 year old cottage. Highly recommended

  • "Fantastic location and thankyou for the parking permits."

    We were able to enjoy the area fully loads of walking along the River and Canal. Sitting out on the rear patio watching the river and wildlife was a must. Great stay we will rebook

  • "The cottage was perfect for our short stay."

    A nice welcome pack of bread, milk, butter & Welsh cakes. Very clean & everything provided for your needs. Location was excellent a few minutes walk to the centre of town but also very quiet. Terrace overlooking the river amazing enjoyed drinks there in the early evening sun. Parking permits were provided for each day and we were lucky enough to get a space.

  • "The positives of this historic home is the location and outstanding views over the River Dee and the Llangollen Bridge, also being an excellent centre for exploring the wonderful countryside and places of interest."

    It is also well equipped and clear that this is a well loved second home for the owners. Thank you for the milk, butter & welsh cakes. On the negative side, apart from one night we were unable to find any parking spaces in the residential area. Would therefore suggest if you are booking this holiday home that you need to be prepared to pay & find a long stay car park in the town. We were extremely fortunate to be offered by one of the local residents use of their private off road parking. I believe without this kind & generous offer it would have made a very stressful holiday knowing that everytime we ventured out on return to Llangollen we would have to find somewhere to park away from the property in a council car park. Also be very aware of the possible hazard of when opening the gate to the property there is an immediate step down. A sign on the gate, to advise of such, is recommended for health & safety reasons

    Hi Carol, Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the welcome pack and amazing views Church Street cottage gives you. Unfortunately, Church street parking can be a problem but no one has ever had such an issue as you are painting out. The long stay car park permit had run out before your stay but has now been renewed so available again for guests staying this year as well as the daily Church street car park permit. The long stay car park is 600m away and is £2.50 per night so not such a holiday killer. It is a good job I have good neighbours who were able to help you out and will do all they can for guests to have a good stay. Property Owner

  • "The property is in a great location."

    So close to all Llangollen has to offer yet in a quiet part of town.The views from the back terrace are amazing and cannot be ignored in any weather's. However so much more could be done to make this even more appealing. This is also true of the interior of the cottage, a consistent lick of paint and a thorough clean wouldn't go a miss. The host greeted us on arrival and was very helpful with parking and directions, also local knowledge. Make the most of the location and its scenery and you won't be disappointed.

    Thank-you for the feedback. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but I take exception to your feedback score that sent the cottage from excellent 4.8 to Good 4.6 The cottage is not a business but my personal holiday home I rent when not using. The cottage has been made neutral as taste is subjective and the more you put in the harder it is to clean. A 350 year old house needs lots of attention and this year alone has had new windows in the bedrooms (hence the amazing view from the main bedroom window), replaced fireplace including the flu after a guest destroyed it, roof repair, chimney pointed. Cleanliness is very important and only last week we had a deep clean including a 3rd party cleaning the oven so I am astonished you marked this so low. I can only work on the feedback so 'needs a thorough clean' does not help me identify what area was not up to standard. Property Owner

    We had a wonderful week in the well-appointed and very comfortable cottage which overlooks the River Dee and Llangollen bridge with a stunning view of Crow Castle out of the large Lounge window and the Main bedroom, which was a glorious sight to wake up to every morning. The cottage is furnished to a high standard with every facility you could reasonably wish for. The information pack offers you a wide range of local and regional attractions. The owner really did everything to make us feel at home immediately upon arrival with a lovely box of chocolate biscuits, sourdough bread, milk, tea and coffee waiting for us in the kitchen after our journey there. After just one day there we booked again and can't wait to return in January and look forward to enjoying the log burner ! Regarding local amenities : there's a good selection of restaurants, bars and pubs nearby as well the well-stocked Co-op mini supermarket (only a two-minute walk away). We can't recommend highly enough.

  • "If you want a holiday home that is clean and welcoming, with more than sufficient amenities if the Welsh weather lets you down, you'll struggle to find many places better in Llangollen."

    Don't expect a 5 star hotel as there are minor signs of wear and tear but thren again not only aren't you paying for one but you wont get a real fire and a patio overlooking the Dee in a hotel. The patio catches the sun and if you're patient the birds are a joy to watch. We saw the normal garden birds, including sparrows, blackbirds and various tit varieties on the patio itself (whilst we were sititng there), and buzzards, swifts/swallows and a kingfisher over the river. Yes, there was an occasional pigeon but you can't get away from those. The only real downside was the steam railway was temporarily closed and it was difficult to book seats on the horse drawn boats due to Covid restrictions.

    Perfect for any a couple or small family. Clean, quiet and comfortable. It's evident the owner has worked hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Only downside if you can call it that is no parking, however you are provided with a permit to park on the road. Neighbours really nice they even moved their own car to help us unload, made us feel very welcome. I have already passed on the cottage details to many of my friends and most definitely will book again. Jane - May 2021

  • "The cottage was very conveniently situated with lovely views of the river and castle."

    It was spotlessly clean with every convenience that you would need. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for the 3 of us. We were blessed with good weather all week and were thus out most of the time just coming back for meals. The outside patio was a real bonus and the welcome wine and cakes much appreciated. The only downside was the parking away from the cottage. Luckily we were supplied with a weeks resident vouchers for the road, but there were only about 12 spaces for about 3 times that number of houses. We took the car out once and there was nowhere to park when we came back so had to park in a car park 10 mins away. Needed to move it before 8 am the following morning. We therefore left the car in situ the rest of the week for fear of the same problem recurring. Due to Covid a number of attractions/eating places were closed but takeaways were open and the area was probably quieter than normal We walked the whole canal towpath from Horseshoes falls to beyond Chirk and back and also up to the Castle twice. Plas Newydd and the nearby Woodland Trust were lovely. The TIC was open intermittently. The station was closed but some shunting was going on and we saw the horse barges practicing ready for reopening. We really enjoyed our 2nd visit to LLangollen and its wonderful scenery.

  • "Not a problem with the cottage as such but parking is an issue."

    It is on the road and requires visitors passes to be displayed in the window of the vehicle. With the current situation, the library where these can be purchased is closed. The owner has left their long stay permit which allows visitors to leave their car overnight in a local car park. Not ideal if you need easy access to your car. Sykes were not very helpful on this matter and we had to speak to the owner directly who couldn’t have been nicer about it. Hopefully this will rectify itself soon. Otherwise the cottage is lovely, has everything you need and there were some lovely treats waiting for us on arrival which was a nice touch. The location is great and the river side patio doesn’t disappoint. Llangollen itself is a really lovely town with beautiful canal walks, riverside bars, railway and a tough but beautiful climb to the nearby castle. We hope to return again soon!

    Very cosy with the log fire burning on a winter evening, still with a river view from the lounge area. Patio area right down by the river not really used (in February), but would be delightful in summer. The beds were comfortable, and the shower room adequate. We have family in the area, so we are regular visitors and know and love Llangollen. The only down side is that we were charged the same price for three nights as for seven nights, which I assume is Sykes policy.

The property

Surrounded by majestic mountain scenery and overlooking the River Dee in the bustling town of Llangollen is Church Street Cottage. Found on one of the oldest streets of Llangollen and built in the late 17th century, this wonderfully-appointed detached property retains many of its original features yet has been tastefully modernised to reflect 21st century comforts.

It is ideal for families seeking a relaxing getaway to a typical Welsh town boasting bags of character and charm.

Enter into the hub of the home, the sociable open-plan, wood-beamed living room with woodburning stove, where a couple of hours during a relaxing evening in can be spent.

Covering all the necessities is the kitchen area, where you will find quality appliances inviting you in to rustle up a tasty treat, as well as a dishwasher ensuring that you do not have lift a finger for the duration of the holiday.

Joining the kitchen is the dining area where you and your loved ones can settle down for an evening meal before sinking into the sofa and choosing a DVD to enjoy from the selection awaiting your arrival.

Concluding the ground floor is the utility room boasting a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

Head up the staircase to find two bedrooms offering wonderful spaces for a spot of rest and rejuvenation.

Find a brightly-decorated double bedroom overlooking the River Dee and wonderful views across to Castell Dinas Brân with its own TV with DVD player and a twin bedroom, an ideal set up for your next family break.

Continuing to impress is the rear patio area, where your morning coffee or evening drinks can be enjoyed whilst admiring the river tumbling past you, or, during a balmy evening, an alternative dining experience can be enjoyed within the front patio area which also has a table and chairs.

Immerse yourself in your surroundings by taking a stroll into the centre of Llangollen, where you will be spoilt for choice by the cafés, pubs, restaurants and independent shops that await you.

Head to the Corn Mill pub for a delicious meal whilst sat on their decked area which overlooks the fast flowing river, or pick up some delicious fish and chips and walk along the canal where you can catch a glimpse of the horse-drawn boat. For the more energetic, try your hand at one of the watersports available on the river or enjoy a scenic walk up to Castell Dinas Brân which overlooks the town.

Within the surrounding area you can choose to walk the dramatic Offa's Dyke path or brush up on the local history by discovering the nearby National Trust properties of Erddig and Chirk Castle.
