  • "Tan y Castell is Beautifully done inside & Out."

    The location and views are outstanding. Sarah & Paul are fantastic hosts. They allowed us to feed the Lambs, which was lovely. It was such a lovely relaxing break, you just need to be prepared to be woken by the noise of the sheep & lambs. Thank you Jon & Kate we will be returning.

  • "A lovely little hideaway, with perfect views all around."

    Easy access to a lot of walking trails, and a stones throw away from Dinas Bran castle. Also on footpaths that go directly to Llangollen. Facilities provided are all you could ever need, and were exceptionally clean on our arrival. Also, the inclusion of a fire pit made the evenings extra cosy. If the weather conditions are poor the hut has underfloor heating, so you won't notice the cold. I would recommend staying here to anybody who likes the countryside, I doubt you would be able to get better views at any other property around Llangollen.

    Thank you for your kind review its very much appreciated, glad the hut was warm and cosy. Hope to welcome you back sometime to see the view again! Property Owner

  • "A lovely place to stay with wonderful scenery, Part way up a mountain so quiet and secluded but with plenty of lovely sheep wondering about."

    Breath taking views and only 5 mins drive from a lovely little town with some further great views and plenty of places to eat etc. Highly recommended.

  • "This beautiful Shepherds Hut sits in an idyllic spot above in the valley just above the town of Llangollen."

    Set on a working farm with views of Dinas Castle and the rolling mountains far off into the distance. The hut has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay, it was spotlessly clean, cosy, peaceful, relaxing and the owners Helen and Mark were very welcoming. If you enjoy wildlife this is definitely the place to stay with the sheep roaming freely and the pheasants majestically flying around, just take your binoculars along lots more to see. Plenty of walking paths easily accessible from the hut too. Our weekend break was just what was needed to top up the batteries and we will be back.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback hope to welcome you back sometime! Property Owner

    From the moment we arrived we loved the place. Amazing views, the accommodation was spotless and really modern. Would love to own something like this ourselves. Will be returning at some stage. What 3 words helped us find the plot easy. Can’t speak more highly of the 2 night stay. Thank you

    We’re glad you enjoyed your stay, thank you for your feedback. We are very lucky to have the Castle so close it makes for a lovely walk. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "Used as a base to explore North Wales - been to Wales many, many times over the years but never stayed in such an amazing location."

    It has to be experienced to appreciate the perfect, peaceful location, close enough to Llangollen to visit with lots of places to eat. Shepherds Hut has a hob and microwave to cook for yourself, extremely clean and comfortable inside and out. Amazing views, you don't have to venture any further if you just want to sit and relax, soaking in the views. Lots of different walks and drives up and down to Llangollen and other areas. Castle Dinas within walking distance. Beautiful panoramic walks in surrounding area. Would highly recommend if you want a relaxing break or as a base to go exploring!

    Thank you for being lovely guests, your positive feedback about our beautiful part of Wales means a lot. Property Owner

Nestled at the base of the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB in Llangollen, Denbighshire is this wonderfully-presented dwelling, Tan Y Castell Shepherds Hut.

Benefitting from a tranquil location, off-road parking, and close proximity to the local amenities and River Dee, Tan Y Castell Shepherds Hut welcomes two guests, ideal for a couple or even two friends looking to explore this scenic corner of North Wales.

Enter your new home-from-home to be welcomed by the inviting accommodation, fully-equipped with a kitchenette, dining area and sitting area so you have everything you need to make you feel at home.

After cooking up a delicious meal, settle down inside or outside on the private patio, soaking up the lovely country air as you toast to your memorable getaway.
