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!

"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.
Many thanks for your kind comments. We are glad you had an enjoyable stay and your son enjoyed his first holiday.

Many thanks for yor kind comments. The heavy snow was certainly unseasonable. But hopefully it didn't stop you exploring north-east Wales. We are glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet, and made use of the log burner!
