The North Wales region
North Wales is the northernmost unofficial region of Wales. It is bordered to the south by the counties of Ceredigion and Powys in Mid Wales and to the east by the counties of Shropshire and Cheshire in England. North Wales is divided in to three traditional regions, viz; Upper Gwynedd (or Gwynedd above the Conwy defined as the area north of the River Dyfi and west of the River Conwy); Lower Gwynedd (or Gwynedd below the Conwy also known as the Perfeddwlad and defined as the region east of the River Conwy and west of the River Dee) and Ynys Môn (or Anglesey), a large island off the north coast
Our nearest town is Llangollen. Llangollen is a small town and community in Denbighshire, north-east Wales, situated on the River Dee and on the edge of the Berwyn mountains. It has a population of 3,412.
Llangollen takes its name from Saint Collen (from the Welsh llan meaning 'fortified church yard' and gollen meaning Collen), a 6th century monk who founded a church beside the river there. St Collen is said to have arrived in Llangollen by coracle. As there are no other churches in Wales dedicated to St. Collen, it is possible that this St. Collen may also have connections in both Colan, Cornwall and Langolen, Brittany.
Standing high above the town to the north is Castell Dinas Bran, the former stronghold of the Princes of Powys. Beyond the castle is the limestone escarpment known as the Eglwyseg Rocks. The outcrop continues north to the area known as World's End. The area nearest to the castle is the Panorama Walk, and a monument to local poet I.D. Hooson (from the nearby village of Rhosllanerchrugog) can be found there.
Valle Crucis Abbey was established in nearby Llangwestl in about 1201, under the patronage of Madog ap Gruffydd Maelor of Castell Dinas Brân.
The bridge at Llangollen was built in about 1345 by John Trevor, of nearby Trevor Hall, who later became Bishop of St Asaph. It was extended to cross the railway when this was built in the 1860s and was widened in the early 1960s. The upstream side has new masonry which blends in with the older structure.
On the outskirts of the town is Plas Newydd ("New Place" or "New Hall"), where The Honourable Sarah Ponsonby and Lady Eleanor Butler (the Ladies of Llangollen) lived.

Thank you, we do try to make sure everything is conducive to our guests having a memorable holiday. It is very rewarding when guests return as it is a reassurance that we managed that in some small way.

"lovely cottage, very cosy, great location, helpful friendly owners."
Spent a great week here over xmas - thoroughly recommended. Can hear the steam train from the garden and see the hills from both of the bedrooms.… More
Thank you for this review, if you come again in the better, more clement weather you will not only hear the trains, but also see them from the garden when we have the furniture out from undercover. It is always a pleasure to us when the trains start again after their short winter break, a bit like the return of first Swallows indicate summer's return, the return of the trains, when we see them chugging along at the bottom of the field is a reminder that spring will soon be on it's way.

We have just spent a wonderful week in Wagtails cottage - albeit helped by that rarity, a week of blue skies! The location is so peaceful and the view stunning yet enough to keep two small boys busy… More
Thanks - we enjoyed your grandson's conversations too, we still have their drawings on our fridge, they make me smile whenever I look at them. If you can bring the same weather should you come again you will get an extra special welcome - though you would probably get one anyway.

"A great time had by all!"
Well it's a couple of weeks since we returned from our New Year's break and I'm already going back! In fairness it's only to collect the watch I lost ! The watch was very sentiment… More
Thank you very much, we were pleased we were able to find your watch, and the internet connection was up to the job. We find the area round here can offer many different types of activity, enough to suit different interests, with the comfort of a warm fire and a good book to come back to, (not to mention to joys of the internet gaming).
Best wishes Richard and Jenny

Thanks we really appreciate your feedback, and have started asking if there are any special needs when people book so we can prepare as much as we can beforehand. You will be pleased to know we have taken on board your suggestion of providing an extra large non-stick frying pan too!
