  • "The Stable was lovely, the views were amazing."

    John was very welcoming and helpful. We will be back.

  • "Wonderful information and support from the host John, excellent peace and quiet and in the week we managed to make the majority of the things to do listed in the guide provided on arrival- all of which were first class."

    Pool was great to cool down in the hot weather and the selection of DVDs and fire would be superb in less temperate weather! But luckily we didn’t need them and spend most of our time in the great outdoors.

  • "A lovely rural retreat overlooking beautiful countryside."

    The swimming pool was a real joy.

  • "Directions to the cottage could have been clearer as we came in from a different direction to those listed making it hard to find."

    But overall we enjoyed our stay.

Overton Vale Cottages

Overton-on-Dee 1.5 miles. Two attractive, detached, brick-built cottages set on the owner's 3-acre smallholding, 1.5 miles from Overton-on-Dee and 5 miles from Ellesmere. Occupying a beautiful country setting, close to the England/Wales border, the properties enjoy shared, seasonal use of the owner's heated outdoor swimming pool during the summer months. Booked separately or together, guests are sure to enjoy a comfortable holiday at this group of cottages, which are full of character and both come with cosy woodburners. Relax in your private garden, admiring the surrounding scenery, or take picturesque walks and cycle rides and visit the lakes, shops and pubs at Ellesmere, all within easy reach of these cottages. After a walk you can settle by the shores of the River Dee, enjoying a well-deserved drink in The Boat Inn at Erbistock just a few miles away, a beautiful 16th century pub overlooking the river and serving fine ale and food. Follow the river further into Wales to discover the majestic Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, just over ten miles away, with its spectacular, far-reaching views. With picturesque Llangollen, the Roman city of Chester and medieval Shrewsbury all a short drive away, these two properties occupy a pretty setting and provide a delightful holiday retreat.

About the location


Ellesmere 5 miles; Llangollen 12 miles.

The village of Overton-on-Dee stands amidst delightful countryside close to the English border, offering a perfect base from which to explore North Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire. Situated on an escarpment around which the River Dee winds its course, this charming village boasts a fine collection of 18th century buildings, a small selection of local shops, a great restaurant and a traditional pub. The nine Meres of Ellesmere are also nearby, created during the glacial period and now providing scenic walks, boat trips, sailing, fishing and bird watching opportunities to the many visitors that travel from near and far. Ellesmere also has a broad variety of attractive buildings including St Mary's Church, which dates back to the Norman Conquest, whilst offering a fine selection of shops and no less than nine pubs in addition to an annual beer festival, making this an ideal holiday location all year round.
