  • "Sara is lovely, perfect host totally anonymous even though right next door, but you know if you had any issues, which we didn't, or had a query which we did, response was pretty much immediate."

    Second time here we absolutely love it and would hope to stay again, would recommend in a heartbeat

  • "We had a fantastic week here."

    The house is very nice with the balcony and the hot tub being our favourite places. The beds were very comfortable and the house was very clean. The wine and chocolate brownies were a very nice touch when we arrived. There is ample parking and the owner was very welcoming. The house is in a quiet lane with the beatiful town of Llangollen just a few minutes drive away. We would Highley recommend this house.

  • "The cottage was great as were the owners who could not be more helpful."

    The brownies that were delivered by the owner on our arrival where delicious and certainly very moorish. The hot tub was very welcoming after a busy day of waking and site seeing. Many thanks once again.

  • "Holiday property was excellent no problems there."

    Everything you need was available. Property was in my opinion let down by the inordinate amount of rubbish surrounding the home. Broken fences, building materials, plastic piping and bricks. I understand that the property owners are working on their own home but this is not what I wanted to see from my balcony or hot tub. Would I recommend cottage yes, but would I go back ????

  • "We had a lovely stay, the brownies and the wine was an extra touch which made our stay extra special."

    Good location and right near the town. The owners were lovely and very welcoming. The only thing we would say is that we were disheartened when we could use the hot tub when we arrived as it needed heating up. We tried to go in at 11pm but was still cold, so we just waited till Saturday morning instead after giving up trying to get it. Definitely would return again. Very lovely stay overall.

  • "The inside of the property was perfectly OK."

    It did say somewhere working farm .I have stayed on many working farms with you .never been a problem and much tideier than this .This was more like a building site ! The picture shown when booking of a lovely bedroom with balcony was very dissapointing .lovely views spoilt by piles of rubbish and building materials .Wasn't able to use hot tub during the day as no privacy due to lots of workmen ..I suggest they clear up a bit or inform future holiday makers of all the building going on ..

    Great location, loads of nice walks to do near by. Hot tub kept well maintained & the homemade brownies and wine on arrival was a lovely touch. Owner just a text away and responds quickly and couldn’t be any more helpful. Such a zen, relaxing few days we can’t wait to return already Xx

  • "We had the most wonderful time here."

    The house is a real home away from home were we were able to relax and destress even with a baby. The views are stunning and so peaceful sitting on the balcony is a real pleasure. The hot tub was a fabulous addition and greatly enjoyed. Cosy evenings bynthe log burner a must. The house was situated slap bang in the middle of nothing yet close enough to everything you could need a short drive away. Great walks available for all ages horseshoe falls, pontcysyllte aqueduc. The host was warm welcoming and super friendly the plate of welcome brownies were a huge hit home made and still warm honestly couldnt ask for more we will be back

  • "The cottage was exactly as described on the website."

    We met the hosts on arrival who couldn’t have been more friendly - a bottle of wine and a plate of homemade brownies was a real treat. Everywhere we wanted to visit was an easy drive - a day in Chester is well worth considering as is a trip to Llandudno. The Chapel tea room at Trevor was also very good. Thoroughly enjoyed our week and would highly recommend.

    Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who were so lovely. They thought of the little things that go a long way. We couldn’t fault it at all- so much so we’ve already booked to go back.

About the location


Llangollen 4.4 miles; Bala 14 miles.

The small village of Glyndyfrdwy is situated amidst the beautiful Dee Valley, just 4.4 miles from the picturesque town of Llangollen. Situated close to the foothills of the scenic Berwyn Mountains, the village is renowned as the home of Owain Glyndwr where, in 1400, he proclaimed himself Prince of Wales and thus began his 14-year rebellion against the English. Today you can still see Owain's Mount - the eroded remains of a 12th century castle motte, whilst the village itself offers a village pub. Great walking is available with the Offa's Dyke Pathway nearby, whilst canoeing on the River Dee is available for those who enjoy water sports. The nearby town of Llangollen offers a good range of shops, pubs and eateries and is internationally famous for its annual Musical Eisteddfod as well as for white water rafting opportunities. Take a steam train through the picturesque Dee Valley, visit the National Trust properties at Erddig or Chirk Castle or take some time to explore the Clwydian Hills or the delights of Snowdonia National Park. A fabulous location at any time of year!
