  • "Cottage was wonderful - full of character, warm and cosy, lovely and quiet with great views of the surrounding countryside."

    The birds visiting the feeders was amazing, could have watched them for hours. Included a woodpecker who visited every day. The Llangollen Steam Railway runs past the property on Sundays so we took the trip and had a great day out. Was nice to see the house from the train and wave at everybody. Cant recommend highly enough, we had a brilliant holiday and cant wait to return.

    Thank you so much Joanne, so pleased to hear you enjoyed the cottage and had a great time. Its a beautiful time of the year to visit, always love the colours of the trees and sound of pheasants in autumn. Hope to welcome you back in the future! All the very best, Arran Property Owner

  • "Absolutely love the cottage and location, it was just perfect, so peaceful and idyllic."

    Cottage was cosy, very comfortable and well equipped. Watching the birds at the feeding station, in such beautiful scenery was a pleasure, as well as seeing the steam trains passing, we both felt so relaxed and refreshed after our week there.

  • "Perfect remote location, not much need for going out in the car sightseeing when you can just go for a walk down to the river or up the mountain."

    Amazing amount of wild birds and animals. Cottage has all the usual quirks of an old building but with the modern comforts of home. Very relaxing stay, would definitely highly recommend.

  • "This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful and peaceful location."

    We felt very relaxed and comfortable with everything you could need regarding kitchen utensils etc. The stairs are steep and begin very close to the twin bedroom and the toilet / shower room is downstairs (I somehow missed that even though it clearly says so in the description) but everything else was great.

    Thank you for the lovely comments Gina; really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Tan Y Garth and of course hope to welcome you back again in the future! All the best, Arran Property Owner

  • "Utterly amazing break from start to finish."

    The cottage is beautiful and in the perfect spot for a quiet relaxing time away from the huddle and bustle of normal life. Had to contact the owner about something and they were really gracious even though they had already explained in the instructions how to fix. Loved seeing the rabbits in the field every morning. When we arrived there was a lovely welcome pack along with a bottle of fizz to celebrate as we had explained we were celebrating our Anniversary. Anyone booking this cottage will most definitely not be disappointed

  • "A beautiful secluded cottage which was just what we needed to relax away from the 9 to 5."

    Our dog loved the garden and the freedom to walk with us on the local paths where no one else ventured. The Llangollen Heritage railway passes close by (only a handful of trains a day) and we would often get a wave as we sat in the garden. David at the nearby farm was also very friendly and helpful. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal if you want to just stay put and relax. Would definitely recommend if you want to get away from the hustle of everyday life.

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    . Peaceful quiet and secluded if you wanted it to be as llangollen/Corwen etc is only a 10/15 mins. We didn't move as we just wanted seclusion, Bliss was the word.. David was really nice and helpful and enjoyed chatting to him. The cottage has everything you need for a week. Prosecco and lemon drizzle cakes where a nice touch, thank you. There is walks from the door into the forest etc Internet and phone reception was good EE If you need.. The track to the cottage is good, no problem at all. Thank you Arran/Rebecca for sharing your little slice of heaven..

  • "What a find Tan y Garth was!"

    Situated in a beautiful location, Tan y Garth is a very cosy cottage which was spotlessly clean and very well catered for. The view from the garden is a little slice of heaven. Hosts could not do enough for us and we appreciated the welcome gift of prosecco, milk and local cakes. The log burner was lovely in the evenings. Although the cottage is in quite a remote area, it’s only a short drive into Llangollen which is just beautiful. The garden was perfect for our little dog and son to kick a ball about. One of our favourite cottage stays and we will definitely be booking to go back. Highly recommend.

  • "This was a fabulous find."

    A beautiful cottage in an isolated location. Lovely walks on the doorstep and a cosy cottage with a log burner to return too. Full of character. A great secure garden for our dog to explore. All in all, pretty much perfect. Watching the birds visit the feeders from the kitchen window was a joy. We will definitely be returning.

  • "Have just come back from our weeks stay at this beautiful cottage, we loved the quietness and that we were well away from the rat race."

    Leo our dog loved having a big garden to run around in and then going for walks without having to worry about cars so no lead needed. The cottage its shelf is very well equipped everything you could need is available, the log burner came into its own in the evenings with no tv on to just sit with your loved one and our fur baby. We would definitely like to stay here again. Also the small touches left for our arrival of tea,coffee, milk, sugar and cake plus the bottle of Prosecco.
