"Lovely, very welcoming cottage"

We had a wonderful time during our three weeks in Talwrn Glas. Helen and Raymond are very hospitable. Tea, coffee and even some milk and butter were provided at our arrival and they helped us with everything we needed. Our children liked the toys in the house very much, as well as the trampoline and walking in the fields around the house. The house gives a nice feeling of being 'in the middle of nowhere' because of the fields and the sheep, whilst at the same time 3 bigger towns are at a distance of online 12 to 20 minutes driving from the property. This makes a stay very convenient. The cottage itself is lovely restored and decorated and everything you might possible need is available. Thank you very much for the nice time!

Thanks for your kind words. We are really glad that you enjoyed your holiday in Wales and felt at home in the cottage. Best wishes. Hopefully you will be able to explore North Wales again.

Our group of extended family was visiting relatives in Wrexham but wanted to experience the Welsh countryside and Raymond and Helen's cottage was just perfect - close and convenient to Wrexham but it felt like we were a world away. Surrounded by lots of sheep and cows it was quiet and peaceful. The cottage itself was so clean and well appointed we had everything we needed. And there were lots of extra thoughtful touches like coffee, tea, milk, butter and a homemade loaf of bread that were much appreciated. Everyone really loved it! The only problem we had was finding the cottage. We had a GPS but the roads on it ended before we found the cottage so we spent about 45 minutes finding it. But we did it in the dark which was our mistake. We would just recommend getting there in daylight and perhaps asking for detailed directions from Raymond and Helen.

Many thanks for your kind comments. If you are over here again I will sort out a geological itinerary for you! Kind regards

"Very clean, characterful and comfortable country refuge"

We stayed for two nights in June with our two pre-school children. We were delighted to see how lovely the accommodation is - it's hard for the pictures to do justice to it. This is a high quality renovation using solid, good quality materials. It's also cosy and welcoming! We didn't have a single problem - there were a few necessary staples in the cupboards (even dishwashing gloves!), unlike some self-catering accommodation, where they remove everything that has been left by previous guests, forgetting that it might be useful. Helen and Raymond were very helpful and were on hand should we have needed any help or had any questions. Lovely freshly baked bara brith on arrival. The children were invited to use the trampoline and the goal posts and other toys left out for them by Helen, which, on top of the Llangollen steam railway nearby, made their holiday. We are looking forward to returning. P.S. There is a pub ten minutes away (the Moors Inn) which, while not a "gastro" pub, is very friendly and obliging, taking our orders at 9pm on a Friday evening.

Thanks for kind comments. I'm glad the boys enjoyed their stay. Perhaps they would enjoy a trip on the Llangollen canal if you come again.

"Beautiful cottage set in stunning location"

This is a fabulous, well equipped property. Set in a very quiet, but beautiful location. We would definitely like to visit again.

Many thanks for your kind comments. Hopefully you can stay longer next time and explore the area. Plenty of varied things to see and do.

"It’s got views and privacy, with a beautiful interior. I would book again without a doubt."

In a peaceful rural position with views over the valley but only 20 minute drive from the centre of Chester. Its stocked with everything you might need and parking for several cars. We visited in winter and the cottage was cosy and warm inside with underfloor heating and a log burning stove with a good supply of logs. We have no hesitation in recommending the cottage and hope to visit again ourselves.

Many thanks for you review, it is the best of both worlds here - a rural cottage, but so close to towns and cities. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future.

"Peaceful break"

Talwrn Glas was set in a very peaceful location but still close to a number of attractions including Llandegla Mountain Biking Centre, Llangollen Railway, Llangollen Canal, Llangollen Park, Chester Zoo and Rhug Estate, all of which were worth visiting. It was a great location. The property was very clean and well equipped. It was a very comfortable cottage and the underfloor heating felt lovely and cosy. There was always plenty of hot water to cater for seven of us and there was also plenty of room for us all at the property. I had alot of questions about the property before booking and Raymond was very informative and helpful. He made up the futon for additional guests and even made arrangements to put a stairgate in to cater for our 2 year old. We left some belongings and Raymond was very helpful in arranging the return of this to us. We would definitely like to return in future. A four night stay wasn't long enough to do everything we'd hoped to do!

Many thanks for kind comments and it is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully we will see you again so that you can explore the area further.

"Beautiful Location, Amazing Cottage and Wonderful Hosts."

I found this cottage at the last minute, when another let had doubled booked me and i was desperate to find something quick. I emailed Raymond and got a very quick response saying that he could help me. WE were in the area for only a couple of days as we were competing in the cycling event Etape Cymru on the Sunday. Our stay at the cottage was a lovely relaxing, whilst at the cottage. We were made to feel very welcome and to find out that there was freshly baked Barra Brith waiting for us wasa mazing and a lovely touch. We will defenetly be back but for longer next time and get to fully relax.

We are pleased that you had a good time and we hope you will be able to come back again, we have lots of really good cycling routes and lots more to see and do, perhaps you fancy etape Cymru again next year.

"An excellent, stress free rural retreat. Highly recommended."

We stayed here during the last week in June 2013 for our 14 month olds first holiday and had a fabulous time. We were made to feel completely at home and the personal touches and kindness of Raymond & Helen were exceptional. The cottage is located in an excellent tranquil location, with very easy access to North Wales and Chester and has everything that you could need. We can't recomment this cottage highly enough and have alread passed on the details to several friends and family.

Hello Many thanks for your kind comments. We are glad you had an enjoyable stay and your son enjoyed his first holiday. Best wishes Raymond and Helen

"A relaxing holiday but with all the essentials - can't wait to return!"

This is an outstanding property, at the end of a quite farm lane therefore no passing traffic! We had a few rides in the nearby forest (parking £4.50). The accommodation is fantastic - very modern and fully equiped. Our two teenage children loved the internet access which was great in the higher part of the master bedroom. Chester was only 20 - 30 minutes away and would highly recommed Cheshire Oaks for all the bargains. Cannot wait to return!!

Many thanks for your kind comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The pump track in the village is also good fun if you come again.
