  • "A very comfortable well equipped cottage."

    Quiet location and efficient timely communication with host when required. We had two large dogs and there are many walks from the cottage and accessible woodland opposite which was ideal. The stairs leading to first floor are steep and narrow, in keeping with the cottage character, so may not be suitable for some people. We would definitely stay here again

  • "Perfect idyllic location, cozy cottage, glorious vista from the windows."

    We spent two weeks very much making ourselves at home exactly as the owners welcome chalk board notice requested. We were snug and warm despite being November in Wales (log burner efficient and mesmerising) This was our base for exploring North Wales and birthplace of our relative 100 years ago. Stunning countryside and mountains to explore as soon as you step left out the gate. Car is however essential. Cyndi and Samantha Rochester, New York, USA

    Thank you so much cyndi and Samantha , was lovely to see you in the morning with a friendly smile and big wave :) So glad you got to explore the Beautiful countryside and enjoyed our cosy cottage, Great to hear you were happy with your time over here All the best Lily and Mike Property Owner

    The only negatives were the fridge was a little small and the welcome pack was just a small cake. Could have done with a small bottle of milk on arrival just to settle down with a hot drink before having to go to the shops. Just minor points, but overall very happy with everything else.

    Perfect area and we were very lucky with the weather. Brilliant for the children who enjoyed exploring a hidden play area in the woodland opposite, plus there is a small playground further down the hill. Didn't use many of the kitchen facilities as we ate out mostly. Helpful owners responded quickly with any questions. Off road parking on the gated drive next to the cottage.

    Property was great for the two of us plus dog. The enclosed garden was just right and the views are spectacular. Lovely big smart tv for when the rains inevitably fall and the woods just across the road were perfect for morning and evening constitutionals. We will definitely be returning.

    dog biscuits on the floor under the table , table cloth not clean , living room floor not hoovered or mopped either ? Whole property could do with a dust , the wooden beams all dusty , window ledges , light fixture in main bedroom and ceiling all need dusting . The property itself is beautiful and we had a great time playing spot the difference with the listing photos . Not sure when they were last updated The welcome book could be left on a table rather than hidden under all the magazines . The neighbours were lovely and friendly but all together it felt like a very rushed clean. Other than that It's a very cosy ,comfortable place to stay in a nice area .

    We've stayed here twice now and would stay again. It's ideal for our needs and our dog Pip has loved it as well. The woodlands are great for her daily walks as well as the Panorama Way and surrounding areas. It's so peaceful and relaxing. Until next time (unless we move near here in the meantime!)

  • "Lovely property and location."

    Good communication with owner. Lovely beds and comfy sofas. Very cold when entered property, heating was only on 17.5 and dehumidifier in operation. Luckily we had everything for log burner. Some small issues, including cobwebs at side of cupboards and lights not working. Also we had to bring all our own wood for log burner from home - I found this odd when owners own woodland adjacent. Stated supplier had let them down in past. It would be helpful if logs could be made available.

  • "Cosy, clean, well maintained cottage set in a great location with stunning panoramic views of the valley beyond."

    Off road parking and enclosed patio garden and every need catered for within the accommodation. There is a lovely woodland opposite the cottage across the lane, which was ideal for walks with our pooches! Visited for the first time the stunning Pontcysyllte Aqueduct near Llangollen where we walked across on the footpath high above the valley with breathtaking panoramic views below. Another first time visit for us was Plas Newydd historic house and gardens and enjoyed a nice coffee in the cafe courtyard where dogs are allowed. Another first time visit for us was Horseshoe Falls with local countryside surroundings to explore. Beautiful Llangollen itself is a must to visit which of course we did and the obligatory stroll along the path overlooking the river and great to see the famous steam train in action once again. We had a lovely restful few days here and highly recommend this cottage set in a beautiful location.

    Thank you so much for all that positive feedback. So lovely to hear about all your trips in our local area. Glad you had a restful time. Many thanks Lily & mike Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week at Woodland Cottage!"

    It is a beautiful, characterful cottage that was extremely clean when we arrived. The owners are friendly and helpful and the fresh eggs and cake were a lovely touch. The cottage has everything you could possibly need for the week and a highchair, travel cot and stair gate were all set up for our arrival. It was the perfect size for our family of four and is a really family friendly cottage for those with small children. The travel cot doesn't have an extra mattress, only the one provided with the cot, so you will need to bring one if you want that extra comfort. We needed another mattress anyway so we just bought one which was no trouble at all, just something to be aware of. The fridge/freezer is also quite small so keep this in mind when doing your shopping. We still managed to get everything in that we had ordered for the week though! So easy to get a Tesco delivery for the day we arrived. The cottage is set in a great location for exploring the local attractions. We enjoyed visiting Llangollen, the Aqueduct, Blue Planet Aquarium, Horseshoe Falls and Chester Zoo. The view from the cottage is spectacular and we loved sitting in the lovely garden as well. There are woods just opposite the cottage for great dog walks. This is a fantastic cottage and we can't wait to stay again in the future!

The property

An attractive, stone-built cottage set within the rural countryside of North Wales, a short distance to the famous town of Llangollen.

Woodland Cottage is perfectly suited for a couple or a small family looking to explore this wonderful part of Wales, with a beautiful base to come back to each evening.

The interior enjoys a wonderful blend of character features and contemporary styling, ensuring a welcoming base that a family of all ages and tastes will enjoy.

After taking in the far-reaching views of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, be welcomed into a well-equipped kitchen, which houses all the essentials to cook up some delicious home-cooked meals.

Upon arrival, you will be delighted to find a wonderful welcome pack to make your stay even more memorable.

Gather your loved ones around the dining table to tuck into your breakfast or dinner and to plan the days ahead.

During the winter months, you will be delighted by the roaring woodburning stove that awaits you within the sitting room, where you can curl up on plush sofas and tune into the TV to catch up on all of your favourite TV programmes.

The elegant styling continues up on the first-floor, where you will find a king-size double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each using the bathroom complete with a bath, hand-held shower, basin and WC.

If you are visiting during the summer months, spend a moment or two within the charming garden area, where you can soak up the surroundings with a glass of something chilled in hand, or enjoy a relaxing moment on the traditional church pew with a good book.

If you can tear yourself away from this spot, head to the village of Cefn Mawr, where you will find a selection of amenities, including shops and pubs, or take a short drive up the Panorama and enjoy a spot of lunch at the Prospect Garden Tea Room.

To keep you busy whilst staying at Woodland Cottage, venture a little further to Llangollen, where you can explore the ruins of Castell Dinas Bran, visit the heritage railway or enjoy its selection of quality amenities.

Further afield attractions include the National Trust property of Chirk Castle and the historic city of Chester.
