Location description from owner

The North Wales region

One of only 8 Protected Landscapes in Wales this 35km chain of heather clad hills and limestone cliffs form a spectacular gateway to North East Wales.The Clwydian Range forms a 35km north – south chain of undulating hills extending to 160 sq.km and rising to 554 metres at the summit of Moel Famau in the centre of the area.

The hills stretch from the Vale of Clwyd in the west to the foothills of the Dee Estuary to the east; from Prestatyn Hillside in the north to the Nant y Garth pass in the South.Seen at its best from the Vale of Clwyd, the open heather moorland of the high ridge dominates the small hedged fields and coppice woodland of the lower slopesIn places, limestone rock outcrops are exposed in attractive wooded escarpments and on the fringes of the area, highly fertile farmland gives a soft pastoral foreground to the hills.

The Offa’s Dyke National Trail follows almost the entire length of the ridge crest.

Llangollen

Llangollen is a truly amazing town, encapsulating the best North Wales has to offer in a small area.Llangollen has many natural wonders. There are mountains, white water rivers including the spectacular River Dee canals with horse-drawn boats, The Llangollen Steam Railway with steam trains that chug along the Dee Valley, the Horseshoe Pass, the Horseshoe Falls and all in easy reach of Chester and Wrexham.

Famous structures, gardens and historic buildings abound, Plas Newydd, home to The Ladies of Llangollen, numerous National Trust properties surround the town and we have the highest and longest aqueduct on the canal system. The Pontcysyllte aqueduct was built by Thomas Telford 200 years ago, over a 1000 feet long and standing 126 feet above the river Dee which 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 which took the canal beginning at the Horseshoe Falls close to The Chainbridge Hotel all the way to join the national canal system. You can also take a horse-drawn boat from The Wharf up to near its source. Both trips are a cheap and very enjoyable way of seeing the spectacular countryside

“Heavenly”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2013

We really couldn't fault this place. Set in a beautiful valley and part of a historic farmhouse, this is a cosy, very comfortable rural escape. The house was warm, despite the cold temperatures, and it had every modern convenience we needed, including a dishwasher and wifi. Huw and Bethan are happy to let you walk all over their large farm, complete with chickens and a rabbit ( our son loved both.) they really go the extra mile for young families - we travelled from Qatar and they laid on lots of toys and a bed rail, things we couldn't bring with us. The garden is fenced and it has a zip wire and swing, also for your use. The location is great, just an hour from Manchester Airport, and yet in such a gorgeous rural location, just a short drive from Snowdonia. To be honest, you could simply stay at the farm, and still have a lovely time. We could have simply watched the view out of the kitchen window all day.

“A wonderful haven with a wealth of 'adventure' right on your doorstep”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2013

My husband and two daughters ( 6 and 9) just returned from our stay here. We had a fantastic time. Plas yn ial has everything you could possibly want - from kitchen roll to a welcoming and warming oil stove in a relaxing 'cwtch' / living room. It is immaculate inside and the beds are very comfortable. Bethan and Huw are lovely, friendly and helpful hosts, and yet they have also ensured that everything you could possibly need to know is labelled and explained, within the accommodation (enabling independence.) We were able to explore a large area of North Wales, which is breathtaking in itself, but at the end of a long day my children would ask if we were heading 'home'- meaning the cottage. They loved it and want to come back as soon as possible!

“Fantastic holiday cottage - will definitely be heading back there!”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2013

My husband and I spent Christmas at Plas yn lal and what a magical week it was! The cottage was perfect, very cosy and warm and the ideal Christmas retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life! The view from the front door was absolutely stunning and the walk over the hills at the back of the farm breathtaking. The cottage is well set up for cyclists and a short drive away from Coed Llandegla. There is a porch at the back to house muddy bikes and kit and there's also a chest freezer in the hallway which came in really handy for cooling beers after a day out on the trails! Huw and Bethan were super helpful and extremely welcoming. I would highly recommend Plas yn lal and will definitely be heading back there in the summer!

“Wow what an amazing place!!!!”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2012

The accommodation at Plas yn Ial is second to none - it is spacious, beautifully and tastefully decorated to a high standard and set in the most wonderful part of north Wales. Huw and Bethan are fantastic hosts and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. We had such a great time and will be booking again

“A peaceful, very comfortable flat with wonderful views”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2012

We had a great holiday in this spacious and very clean flat which provides everything you need to feel at home. As it was quite chilly on a few days we also enjoyed the oil fired iron stove. The views from the kitchen table onto the other side of the valley are fantastic and the bleating of the sheep helps you to unwind.

“Superb accomodation in a superb location”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2011

We were lucky enough to stay at Plas yn Ial during the recent half term, in which the house proved a fabulous outpost for various trips around wales, for example Snowdon in about 45 minutes. I wish we'd spent more time in the house itself. It was warm, cosy, kitted out to a very high standard and the owners were wonderfully hospitable and accomodating. Slightly cliched but it was indeed a home from home, and we will definitely be returning in the future.

“Beautiful location with plenty of space and great for kids”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2011

Very good website which made it easy to see exactly what type of accommodation it was. Well equiped self catering apartment and friendly, helpful service. It was an ideal place to stay with small children as catered for their needs perfectly. There was so much space, inside and out, which made it a very relaxing place to spend time. Lots to do in local area and the farm where it is located to explore. Good value for money.

Thank you - and also for leaving the accommodation so very clean and tidy on your departure. Regards Huw

“Beautiful and relaxing”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2011

This house was the perfect basecamp to explore the area. A relaxing, beautiful place to come home to every day.

The borderlands has so much to offer, which is often overlooked by people travelling through to Snowdonia. Top 5 are: 1.Chirk Castle, 2.Erddig Hall, 3.Froncysyllte Acquaduct World Heritage site, 4.Walk to Dinas Bran LLangollen, 5 Coed Llandegla Forest Mountain bike centre. Regards Huw

“Excellent hospitality, very clean and quiet”

Reviewed 17 May 2011

An excellent cottage to stay in part of the farm house. Lovely scenery and a good base to see Chester and Snowdonia. The owners could not be more helpful and very accomadating. Our children particularly loved feeding the Sheep and playing on the zip wire in the vast garden. Cannot wait to visit again.

Thank you for your kind comments
