"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.

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.
