    “Just back from a lovely holiday in Wales.”

    Cartref is a great holiday cottage ideally situated a 5 min walk from the centre of Llangollen with its many restaurants, bars and shops. You’re also a 2 min walk from Aldi which is highly convenient, especially as it is open until 10pm most nights. There is plenty to do in the area and we enjoyed Bodnant Gardens, Chester Zoo and a canoeing trip over the aqueduct. ...

    Cartref is a great holiday cottage ideally situated a 5 min walk from the centre of Llangollen with its many restaurants, bars and shops. You’re also a 2 min walk from Aldi which is highly convenient, especially as it is open until 10pm most nights. There is plenty to do in the area and we enjoyed Bodnant Gardens, Chester Zoo and a canoeing trip over the aqueduct. The cottage was modern, comfortable and clean. The bed was a comfortable king with good quality bedding. As a party of 3 the cottage suited us well, but note it is quite small and I think you’d struggle if there were 4 of you. For example there are 3 comfy seats in the lounge, although you could probably squeeze another one in if your kids are small! Our only concern was how close to the A5 the cottage is. In fact this proved to be less of a problem than anticipated as overnight the traffic dies down, and the windows are good quality so kept much of the noise out. If it was very hot I can see this could be difficult, if you wanted to sleep with the window open. However I’m not sure Wales is hot very often... There is also no outdoor space, although you are directly opposite the play park with a seating area. Thank you for a lovely holiday, if a little wet!

Waterloo House

A group of three pleasant cottages sitting in a row located in Llangollen, taking a roadside position. Lovely views lean out towards the park and river nearby with Castell Dina Bran in the distance, a backdrop that can be admired from the comfort of your very own holiday home. Each retreat includes a well-equipped, modernised kitchen and a collection of appliances, so you can prepare those delicious meals at ease morning through to evening. The family bathrooms and shower rooms have been styled in a contemporary overtone, wrapped in a grey finish to compliment the cottages neutral theme. The sitting rooms are comfortable and inviting, your little haven to enjoy some quiet time after a sightseeing adventure. Whether you are coming together as a family, accompanying friends, or planning a romantic getaway, the interior provides somewhere for everyone to relax in style, with a choice of bedrooms available from master suites to twin set-ups, even ground floor sleeping arrangements for convenience or preference. Llangollen is a haven for shoppers looking for interesting and unusual gifts. There are a series of interesting walks in the town; the canal from the town to the Chain Bridge Hotel and Horseshoe Falls as an example. Another walk is Bishops Walk from the Bridge End Hotel side of the river bridge along the riverside past the old mill sluice gates and leet and the remains of the weir, then past views of St. Collens church over the river, and on to the Sarah Ponsonby Inn. A favourite walk is the town side of the bridge stroll along Dee Lane and Victoria Promenade to Riverside Walk. This passes by gardens with scenery of the steam trains, ducks, tennis courts, bowling green and children's play area. The National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erddig are within easy driving distance and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, the highest in the world which is a World Heritage site and boasts breath taking views is just 5 miles away, while a day-long car trail can take you to visit six of the 'Seven Wonders of Wales'. Three lovely cottages to base your stay.
