NEWLY COMPLETED - 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.

"Can't wait to go back"

This is a beautiful cottage with lots of character. It was spotlessly clean and had all the utilities that we needed plus more. The owner is absolutely lovely and went out of her way to make our stay … More

"Clean,comfortable dog-friendly cottage with friendly, helpful owner"

This was our second stay in this cottage. Having visited last Summer we thought we would try a short winter break to see the log burner in action! We were not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very clean, comfortable and cosy. Our group consisted of two adults and two teenagers. The owner Carol provides a really good welcome hamper that contains the basics but was also willing to purchase some extra items for me so that I could cook a meal when we arrived on Friday evening. Carol also recommended a local riding school where our teenagers enjoyed a hack on Sunday. As before, dogs are made very welcome too. All of this made our stay really enjoyable and I am sure that we will return to this lovely cottage.

"Cosy and peaceful cottage with bags of character"

We stayed over the Christmas week at the end of 2013. The reviews on tripadvisor have it spot on so I will only add to the superlatives that have already been written. Firstly, the cottage itself is located in a lovely village surrounded by hills, rolling countryside and a large forest. It's location opposite a church only adds to the atmosphere of the place. The cottage itself is spotlessly clean and quite spacious (especially for a couple - though more could easily manage). The owner Carol is extremely welcoming, and she thinks of everything to make sure that guests enjoy their stay. She showed us around when we arrived (for about five minutes) then she left us alone to enjoy our break. We knew that if we had any problems then she was only at the end of the phone. She also left us with plenty of fuel for the lovely woodburner, and also a generous hamper of necessities and Welsh specialities. Basically, this is the fourth cottage we've stayed in over Christmas, and I have to say, probably the nicest. HIghly recommended. We'll certainly be making our way back at some time in the future.
