The Bell Ringer's Cottage in Llandegla is one of 4 dressed stone cottages opposite the historic church of St Tecla. It was built around 1866 at the same time that the church was being reconstructed, and originally was a workers cottage for Bodidris Hall. It sits just yards away from the Offa's Dyke foot path.

Llandegla is situated in the Vale of Clwyd and is an ideal base to explore the North Wales and Cheshire offering plenty of activities, places to visit and local walks of different levels on your door step. Llandegla also has a wonderful general stores and post office.

The cottage is deceptively spacious and has retained many of its original features including beams, exposed stone walls and has been newly refurbished and furnished to a high standard.

The ground floor offers a cosy comfortable lounge featuring an inglenook fire place with log burner and a fully equipped kitchen diner that leads out to a pretty sitting area in the cottage garden.

From the hall the staircase leads to a landing with two bedrooms one a double the second a twin and bathroom with double walk in shower and heated towel rail.

The Bell Ringer's Cottage is ideally situated to explore North Wales and Cheshire

It is only 2 miles to Coed Llandegla – the nationally known mountain bike centre. We have an outbuilding with 'oxford floor anchor' to secure mountain or road bikes to.

The North Wales region

Some of the most spectacular scenery in Wales lies along the Vale of Llangollen, where the Rivers Dee and Clwyd thread their way through steep wooded valleys and lush water meadows, overlooked by mountain ranges with peaks more than 2000 ft in height. Northward, the tortuous Horseshoe Pass winds between the mountains of Llantysilio and Eglwyseg toward the fertile Clwyd Valley. As the Dee runs eastward, it loops around the ancient market town and industrial capital of North Wales, Wrexham, where St Giles' steeple is one of the traditional 'Seven Wonders of Wales' - no fewer than five of the seven are to be found in Clwyd. The foaming River Dee at Llangollen tests the bravest of canoeists, and further up-river anglers can fish salmon and trout.

The county's wooded hillsides provide for hill climbers and walkers, while the attractive twisting lanes around Glyn Ceiriog are a motorist's delight.


Llandegla is well known nationally for its Mountain Bike Centre - One Planet Adventure, Coed Llandegla, also for fishing and shooting at Fauxdegla, but most importantly Offas Dyke path runs just a few yards from the cottage.

Llandegla village is only a short drive (10/15 mins) to Llangollen, Ruthin, Mold, Wrexham or Chester.

"Home from home, clean and quaint cosy cottage."

From the minuite you walk through the door, to the minute you leave, everything evokes the word "Welcome". It was soooo nice to not have to think too much about having a break away. We stayed at the Bellringers for two nights Oct 2014, and had such a lovely realxed couple of days. Carol was extremely welcoming on our arrival and explained all we needed to know about the cottage and surrounding area. We unpacked and almost wondered what to do next as there was no other thinking involved and the cottage was so well stocked with everyday essentials, you just opened the cupboards and it was there.
The cottage is decorated beautifully, and has a supply of books to read, maps to help you find your way around, board games and so much more! The welcome hamper was lovely to receive and meant you could just get on with you break without worrying about your next meal requirements.
We took our dog to the nearby forest and had a great walk amongst the fir trees which I'm sure will become christmas trees it the not to distant future. We also walked closer to the cottage through the beautiful billowing meadows with brooks and amazing views of the welsh mountains.
Overall we had an amazing break and would definitley recommend to friends and family.

"Beautiful homely cottage"

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights with our little dog Jack and we didn't want to leave. Lovely, friendly village with some lovely walks and the cottage it's self was perfect... Cosey, clean and well equipped. There was nothing that Carol (owner) hadn't thought of to make our stay comfortable. We even had a welcome hamper for ourselves and a treat for the dog.

We will definitely be staying again.

Thank you Carol for being so lovely with us (and Jack) and so accommodating.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Felicity, Rebecca & Jack :)

Location is great, nice quiet peaceful area with great walking and cycling amenties and a huge selection of activities in the surrounding areas. Would strongly recommend.
