The property

Chirk 1 mile.

A charming, stone mid-terrace cottage, on a working sheep farm, in the scattered hamlet of Pontfaen, one mile from Chirk and 3/4 mile from the train station.

This fantastic eco-friendly barn conversion offers delightful holiday accommodation in a stunning setting with views along the valley to the famous Chirk Aqueduct and viaduct, across open countryside and onto the River Ceiriog.

Stepping inside you will recognise the attention to detail, with a welcoming entrance hall opening into a fully fitted modern kitchen with dining areas and garden views.

The sitting room is spacious and well-thought-out, with character features re-introduced to include wooden wall frames, oak ceiling beams and stylish country furniture.

French doors invite you out onto the private patio and three steps lead down onto a shared lawn area, all enjoying the unique views to the World Heritage site of the aqueduct.

Upstairs the cottage is equally well laid out with an attractive double bedroom, a single room that accommodates a pull-out stacker bed to sleep a sixth guest, and a king-size bedroom with en-suite shower facilities.

There is private parking on the shared courtyard in front of the cottage, allowing you to park your car safely and enjoy exploring the doorstep countryside trails on foot, with Chirk Castle's famous 'pretty gates' only 1/2 mile away and the nearby Shropshire Way, Offa’s Dyke, Llwybr Ceiriog Trail and Llwybr Maelor Way, perhaps walking to the local pub which is a 15 minute walk along the river.

Spending your holiday in such an idyllic, tranquil location is certain to create superb memories of this wonderful holiday cottage and surrounding area.

About the location


Llangollen 5 miles.

The small border town of Chirk (Welsh spelling: Y Waun) stands on the escarpment above where the rivers Ceiriog and Dee meet, and is referred to as The Gateway to Wales. Most famous for its magnificent 14th century castle and gardens, one of many built throughout Wales by Edward I, Chirk boasts a wonderful aqueduct, designed by Thomas Telford, a selection of pleasant pubs and restaurants, convenience stores, chemist, gift shop, coffee shops, local butcher's, greengrocers, bakery, an excellent golf course and marina. The surrounding area, notably the beautiful Ceiriog Valley described by Lloyd George as “a little bit of heaven on Earth”, provides wonderful walks and cycling, including the famous Offa's Dyke Pathway, and local trout fishing. Only five miles from charming Llangollen, with its stream railway, watersports, famous Eisteddfod, Castell Dinas Bran, Valle Crucis Abbey and scenic Horseshoe Pass. Also five miles is the market town of Oswestry with its iron age hillfort, and within easy reach is the Roman walled city of Chester with its famous zoo and the medieval town of Shrewsbury, both only half an hour by train or car from Chirk. The beautiful Lake Vyrnwy and Llanrheadr waterfall are also within an hours drive. This great location has plenty to see and do for all the family!
