  • "Everything extremely comfortable."

    Double bed very comfy and all facilities as required. Only minor comments is that settee a little uncomfortable otherwise wrll eorth the stay and the money. Location also excellent.

  • "Lovely stay, very clean."

    Would be perfect if settees weren't so low and could do with mirrors in bedrooms near to a plug, with table or something to put hairdryer, brushes, makeup etc on. In main bedroom mirror was balanced on a radiator, so mirror would have been fine for a four year old at that height. Top floor bedroom had no mirror so difficult to apply above activities especially when someone else was using bathroom. These are minor points, but would have made our stay perfect!!

  • "The house is in a perfect location."

    It was spotlessly clean and had everything required for a stay cation. The house was very warm except I would like to mention the radiator was not working in the master bedroom and the bedding not sufficient for the winter months. I also think that blinds required on the back door as when someone in the ally they can see right through the house. I found this quite a concern. However I would stay at the house again.

  • "Very good location for train and horse drawn boat trips, town centre for shops cafes and restaurants lovely clean and warm cottage a bit small for 5 people as advertised but only 2 of us so was nice, kitchen very well equipped fabulous shower in bathroom, nice big main bedroom with comfy bed personally think it would benefit from having a dressing table with mirror."

    I struggled to find somewhere with a mirror and plug socket to dry my hair just a suggestion to make a more comfortable stay As other reviews have said loft stairs VERY steep but we didn't need to use them but something to consider if you have small children in your group Parking on the street a bit hit and miss as stated in description usually spaces after 5.30 but car park just on other side of wall £3.50 all day and can be seen from bedroom so wasn't really an issue. Overall a very pleasant stay in a lovely village and would definitely use again for just the 2 or 3 of us but not sure we would use when we have both our grandchildren with us due to the loft stairs.

  • "The house was fantastic, perfect location and fully equipped with everything we needed and more!"

    My only comment would be the stairs into the bedroom, whilst I understand you can’t do much about them, it would be worth mentioning they are steep within the description, just to prepare people particularly if they have young children.

    Spotlessly clean. Excellent location on quiet street but central with everything you needed (shops, restaurants, pubs) just a few minutes walk away. The only thing this property lacks is a garden but everything else is spot on.

  • "We stopped in Whitewater Cottage for 3 nights as a mini dog holiday in Llangollen and everything about the cottage was perfect!"

    The Cottage - the cottage felt like it had just been renovated with brand new carpets throughout, new modern appliances and a loft conversion. The kitchen had everything you would need to be fully self catering it even had a small dish washer! The lounge was cosy with two couches and with a TV which had netflix which was handy as the pubs were closing at 10pm due to coronavirus rules. The bedroom was large and the shower was amazing. The Location - the cottage is set right in the centre of the picturesque Llangollen. Amazing scenery wherever you look, the town is surrounded by mountains, features a river thats flows through the centre and even boasts a canal you can walk down. We will definitely be going back, we did three decent size hikes while we were there but it just feels like there has been so much more we haven't seen yet.

  • "Lovely central location on a quiet street."

    Parking was not a problem and the accommodation was fresh and comfortable. Only criticism we had was that it got cold on a couple of evenings and it was not obvious how to operate the heating system as there was no consumer controls / thermostat. Boiler pressure was low which I had to top up before turning the heating on at the boiler.

    Space for 4 bikes in the alleyway shared with neighbours, as long as handlebars twisted sideways. Nice having a smart TV. Parking within 25m of the hose was never a problem. Thanks Ed, for a great holiday.

The property

Located on a quiet street in the centre of Llangollen, providing views of the steam railway, River Dee, and the Dinas Bran Castle ruins, is this charming Victorian property, Whitewater Cottage.

This three-storey terraced home is well-placed for a family or small group wanting to explore Lllangollen and the surrounding area.

There is roadside parking available, but this can get quite busy due to the property's central location, however, there are a few car parks nearby with blue badge parking.

Entering the property, you will be greeted by a cosy sitting room, with neutral tones giving a bright and airy feel, and a choice of two sofas to kick back onto after a day filled with adventure, enjoying something on the TV or making further plans for the days ahead.

The contemporary kitchen has lovely white tiled walls and sage green cupboards, and is well-equipped for all of your culinary needs, offering plenty of space and all the appliances you will need to create delicious home cooked meals, with the handy dishwasher taking care of the washing up for you.

Upstairs, you will find two of the three bedrooms, a spacious double and a single, immaculately presented with cosy carpeted floors, lovely views and ample storage space, along with the family bathroom, offering a walk-in shower, so you can start each day in whichever way you prefer.

Heading up to the second floor, there is a spacious attic room with twin beds, storage space and a bedside lamp, should you wish to do a bit of late night reading.

This property is well-placed for exploring Llangollen, with a range of attractions and amenities available to you from your doorstep.

There is a great selection of shops, cafés, restaurants, fish and chip shops and convenience stores just a short walk away, while crossing Llangollen Bridge, above the River Dee, will bring you to Pafiliwn Llangollen Pavilion, a World Heritage Site and venue for the International Musical Eisteddfod, an internationally renowned, annual music festival every July.

Stop at the horse-drawn boat centre, where you can arrange a trip down the peaceful canal, visit the historic Plas Newydd House Museum & Gardens, which was the home of Ladies of Llangollen, Lady Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby, for almost 50 years, while Castell Dinas Brân showcases the ruins of the 13th century castle, built on an Iron Age hill fort.

Why not hire a boat and cross the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, built by Thomas Telford and Williams Jessop and nestled among 11 miles of World Heritage Site, or explore the area on foot, with numerous walking trails through beautiful countryside, including the circular route of The Llangollen Round, which incorporates every summit of the Vale of Llangollen and showcases views of Llangollen, Snowdonia and even the Shropshire Hills.

Whitewater Cottage is an excellent central base for enjoying a wealth of activities and adventure in this wonderful part of North Wales.
