The North Wales / Denbigh/Flint/Conwy region
One of only 8 Protected Landscapes in Wales this 35km chain of heather clad hills and limestone cliffs form a spectacular gateway to North East Wales.
The Clwydian Range forms a 35km north – south chain of undulating hills extending to 160 sq.km and rising to 554 metres at the summit of Moel Famau in the centre of the area. The hills stretch from the Vale of Clwyd in the west to the foothills of the Dee Estuary to the east; from Prestatyn Hillside in the north to the Nant y Garth pass in the South.
Seen at its best from the Vale of Clwyd, the open heather moorland of the high ridge dominates the small hedged fields and coppice woodland of the lower slopes
In places, limestone rock outcrops are exposed in attractive wooded escarpments and on the fringes of the area, highly fertile farmland gives a soft pastoral foreground to the hills.
The AONB has traditionally been a day-trip destination from Merseyside and Cheshire, and receives large numbers of visitors, particularly at its two Country Parks of Loggerheads and Moel Famau. The Offa’s Dyke National Trail follows almost the entire length of the ridge crest.
The Llangollen / Llandegla area
Llangollen is a truly amazing town, encapsulating the best North Wales has to offer in a small area. With more sun than Cornwall and less rain than the Lake District it is no wonder that this gateway to North Wales should be so popular with sightseers and walkers of all ages.
Llangollen has many natural wonders. There are mountains, white water rivers including the spectacular River Dee canals with horse-drawn boats, The Llangollen Steam Railway with steam trains that chug along the Dee Valley, the Horseshoe Pass, the Horseshoe Falls and all in easy reach of Chester and Wrexham.
Famous structures, gardens and historic buildings abound, Plas Newydd, home to The Ladies of Llangollen, numerous National Trust properties surround the town and we have the highest and longest aqueduct on the canal system. The Pontcysyllte aqueduct was built by Thomas Telford 200 years ago, over a 1000 feet long and standing 126 feet above the river Dee which is now a world Heritage Site .
You can cross it by narrow boats which depart from The Wharf in Llangollen for a 3-hour return trip and marvel at the engineering which took the canal beginning at the Horseshoe Falls close to The Chainbridge Hotel all the way to join the national canal system. You can also take a horse-drawn boat from The Wharf up to near its source. Both trips are a cheap and very enjoyable way of seeing the spectacular countryside

My husband and two daughters ( 6 and 9) just returned from our stay here. We had a fantastic time. Plas yn ial has everything you could possibly want - from kitchen roll to a welcoming and warming oil stove in a relaxing 'cwtch' / living room. It is immaculate inside and the beds are very comfortable. Bethan and Huw are lovely, friendly and helpful hosts, and yet they have also ensured that everything you could possibly need to know is labelled and explained, within the accommodation (enabling independence.) We were able to explore a large area of North Wales, which is breathtaking in itself, but at the end of a long day my children would ask if we were heading 'home'- meaning the cottage. They loved it and want to come back as soon as possible!

My husband and I spent Christmas at Plas yn lal and what a magical week it was! The cottage was perfect, very cosy and warm and the ideal Christmas retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life! The view from the front door was absolutely stunning and the walk over the hills at the back of the farm breathtaking.
The cottage is well set up for cyclists and a short drive away from Coed Llandegla. There is a porch at the back to house muddy bikes and kit and there's also a chest freezer in the hallway which came in really handy for cooling beers after a day out on the trails!
Huw and Bethan were super helpful and extremely welcoming. I would highly recommend Plas yn lal and will definitely be heading back there in the summer!
10 Sep 2012
The accommodation at Plas yn Ial is second to none - it is spacious, beautifully and tastefully decorated to a high standard and set in the most wonderful part of north Wales. Huw and Bethan are fantastic hosts and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. We had such a great time and will be booking again
