    This cottage is the perfect location to explore North Wales from, it's easy reach (with a car) as far as Anglesey one way and to Chester the other way. The village has all you need, there is a shop which sells everything and it's in walking distance of the cottage. The walk is also all on a pathway, so it's also a safe walk. We stayed during February so were using the open fire, and you can get all you need for the fire at the local shop too. The cottage has two bedrooms with the main bedroom being separated with a curtain. So it's ideal for a couple and even a couple with kids, but it probably wouldn't suit two couples, but a girlie weekend would work. The cottage is deceptively roomy on the inside, with a good size kitchen with a cooker range, dining table and everything in the kitchen you could possible need. The master bedroom is very large with plenty of room for your clothes and bits. It's a comfy bed too. You know when you go away and you never sleep properly the first night, well that didn't happen, we slept through 11 hours, we were disgusted with ourselves, but proved the bed must have been comfortable. The bathroom has a shower over the bath and the towles are lovely and soft. We would certainly go again, ideal spot, lovely cottage and beautiful area.

About the location


Llangollen 5 miles; Chirk 6 miles; Oswestry 9 miles.

Glyn Ceiriog is the main village in the picturesque Ceiriog Valley in Wrexham County, North Wales. This beautiful valley, described by Lloyd George as 'a little piece of heaven on earth’, offers a wealth of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors, from walking and fishing to horse riding and cycling. Formerly the centre of the slate mining industry in the valley, Glyn Ceiriog is located three miles south of Llangollen and offers a good range of local amenities, including two village pubs, a Post Office containing tourist information and a cafe, a well-stocked village store and a community sports centre, offering a range of activities including bicycle hire, tennis, indoor bowls and table tennis. Nearby, you will find a wide array of attractions, with the dramatic World Heritage Site of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct well worth a visit. Set alongside the boulder-strewn River Dee, why not visit the popular town of Llangollen, famous for the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod? Offering a good range of pubs and restaurants, as well as many interesting shops, the town also boasts a dramatic mountain backdrop. Explore the Dee Valley by steam train or canal boat, or take an exhilarating walk up to Castell Dinas Brân, high above the town to enjoy the breathtaking view! The National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erddig are both within easy driving distance, while a day-long car trip can take you to visit six of the Seven Wonders of Wales. Enjoy a visit to the Old Hill Fort at Oswestry, scenic walking on Offa’s Dyke Path, along the crest of the Clwydian Hills, or access the national rail network to explore the Roman city of Chester, Shrewsbury and beyond. Glyn Ceiriog is a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful region all year round.
