  • “Had a great week at Beater's cottage.”

    Super base for exploring North Wales, nice pub down the road, and the kids loved the pool to distraction! Good to have access to tennis court and to table tennis on the rainy days. Do be aware that the four poster bedroom has a rather firm mattress and is accessed through one of the twin bedrooms (as is the upstairs bathroom).

About the property

Corwen 4.7 miles.

This fantastic holiday cottage is situated on a country estate, surrounded by a 140-acre sheep farm and woodlands, with the use of an indoor heated swimming pool and tennis court, overlooking the Afon Ceirw, in the scattered hamlet of Maerdy, between Corwen and Cerrigydrudion, in beautiful North Wales.

Enjoying peace and tranquillity, the cottage is an ideal central location to explore the surrounding area, with Bala and its superb lake renowned for its watersports, Betws-y-Coed, known as the gateway to Snowdon, and Llangollen with its impressive steam railway, all within 30 minutes’ drive.

Warmed by an eco-friendly biomass boiler, Beater's Cottage is an impressive, stone detached cottage, retaining character features, and offering practical accommodation throughout.

Entering the property past the babbling river with trout fishing permits, and crossing the front patio you will immediately start to unwind.

Stepping inside through the porch into the dining room, you will find an arch leading into the welcoming sitting room with comfy sofas and a warming woodburner set in an inglenook hearth, with river views to the side, inviting you to sit and relax straight away.

The kitchen is fitted to offer everything you will need, with an original Rayburn stove retained as a character feature to compliment the exposed ceiling beams and also offering river views.

Upstairs stylish oak flooring has been laid in keeping with the theme of the property, and a king-size four poster bed installed in the double bedroom, which is accessed through one of the two twin bedrooms.

There is a spacious master king-size bedroom with delightful views over the river and sofa seating.

There are family bathrooms on each floor and a utility room off the kitchen to ensure you have everything in the house for a relaxing stay.

The garage has been set up with a table tennis table, ideal for family tournaments; whilst outside the large, enclosed rear courtyard is partly covered and offers a Mediterranean feel, as well as providing access to the heated indoor swimming pool, with eight person sauna.

The owner is happy for you to use the outdoor tennis court accessed through the delightful manor gardens, but please bring your own equipment.

Once you have tired yourself out with the activities available on site, or the miles of footpaths that cross the land, then just enjoy a refreshing drink, relaxing on the front patio and watching the river meander past, or walk across the road to the 17th century coaching inn where a warm welcome and tasty food is assured.

A fantastic holiday cottage which will leave you with many happy memories.

About the location


Llangollen 10 miles; Bala 12 miles; Ruthin 12 miles; Betws-y-Coed 22 miles.

Set in the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, at the meeting point of five river valleys, is the picturesque North Wales market town of Corwen. A charming town offering plenty of local amenities including traditional butchers, greengrocers and bakeries as well as a selection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and a leisure centre, trim trail and children’s play area. Corwen provides everything you need whilst discovering this stunning area. A journey on the Llangollen Heritage Steam Railway, which has now been extended to Corwen, is one of the best ways to see the beautiful views of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in comfort. Take a horse-drawn canal boat from Llangollen and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pontcysyllte, Britain’s largest aqueduct. Corwen is immersed in history and heritage; learn about Owain Glyndwr, the self-proclaimed Prince of Wales, explore beautiful Rug Chapel and Langar Church, or climb through the heather to one of the most important Iron Age hill forts, Caer Drewyn, built around 800 BC. Visit the National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erddig, explore the atmospheric ruins of Cistercian Valle Crucis Abbey and Castell Dinas Brân. Foodies can visit the nearby Rhug Estate, one of the largest organic properties in the UK and dine at Tyddyn Llan in nearby Llandrillo, considered to be one of Wales' finest restaurants. The historical town of Ruthin and the town of Bala, with its celebrated lake, offering wonderful watersports, are just twenty minutes away by car. The exhilarating Snowdonia National Park is just fifteen minutes’ drive away; an arena of outdoor adventure just waiting for you to discover, which can also be accessed via the lovely village of Betws-y-Coed, the official 'Gateway to Snowdonia’.
