The Denbighshire region

Llangollen stands on the river Dee nestling in the valley amidst beautiful mountainous countryside. It provides an ideal centre for touring North and Mid-Wales, including the Snowdonia National Park and numerous coastal resorts. For a slightly longer trip it is possible to head for Bangor and cross the Menai Straits Bridge over to Anglesey.

The Ffestiniog narrow gauge heritage railway is within an hours drive where you can hop aboard at Blaenau Ffestiniog bound for Porthmadog. As well as the outstanding beauty of the countryside surrounding Llangollen there are many local attractions and activities available.

Llangollen

Llangollen nestles in the valley of the river Dee and is overlooked by mountains and safe guarded by the ruins of Castell Dinas Bran. It hosts the world famous International Eisteddfod in early July each year and many other festivals - Balloon, Jazz.

There is the spectacular river Dee for white water rafting and canoeing and the canal for trips on horse-drawn narrow boats. The Pontcysyllte aqueduct the highest and longest aqueduct on the canal system was built by Thomas Telford 200 years ago, over a 1000 feet long and standing 126 feet above the river Dee. This 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. You can also take a horse-drawn boat from The Wharf up to near its source at the Horseshoe Falls. Both trips are a very enjoyable way of seeing the spectacular countryside.

The Llangollen Steam Railway takes steam trains all along the Dee Valley to Carrog and on special occasions Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends put in an appearance. Famous structures, gardens and historic buildings abound in the area, Plas Newydd, home to The Ladies of Llangollen and numerous National Trust properties are in easy reach, Chirk Castle, Erdigg, Attingham Park. Llangollen is a short drive to Wrexham and the historic town of Chester. Chester zoo is a must for animal lovers and those interested in their conservation and research projects.

For those looking for a more energetic holiday the town and surrounding area offers a wealth of activities – horse riding, golf, mountain bike riding, swimming, white water rafting, canoeing, rock climbing and abseiling, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, paragliding as well as area for good walking, climbing and bird watching.

Something of interest for all ages.

"All the "C"'s; comfortable, cosy, clean & convenient"

Very pleasant property with everything you need for a quiet and relaxing stay. Well maintained and clean. Convenient for shops, restaurants and bars. Short walk to town centre, river and railway station. Quiet location. Comfortable beds and furniture. One negative point is parking but only a minor inconvenience.

"Lovely cottage in a beautiful village"

The cottage is in a perfect location for exploring in and around Llangollen. Shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants are all within a few minutes' walk. The property was well equipped and maintained. The stair to the bedrooms on the first and second floors is quite steep so might not be suitable for less abled guests. For anyone considering visiting this beautiful area of North Wales, we can highly recommend this property.

"Lovely!"

We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was large, for the 2 of us and we had plenty of space. A lovely seating area outside added to the charm. Within easy walk of shops, bars and restaurants in Llangollen.

"Lovely, relaxing holiday in lovely cottage in easy walking distance to all amenities."

This is a lovely old cottage on 3 levels, which had everything we needed for a little holiday. It was in easy walking distance of the pretty town of llangollen with its canal, river and the railway. Our children were delighted to see "Thomas" during our stay and there are some quaint family friendly restaurants and cafes, some with great views of the river and countryside. We had first class service and communications from Lesley and look forward to visiting again. Highly recommended.
