Further details indoors

The property is on four floors. On the top floor is the family room with super king size bed and single bed, a double bedroom and shower room. Next floor down is the fully equipped kitchen, with table and chairs for seven and lounge with two couches and armchair, TV etc. Next floor down is the third bedroom, with river views. On the lower ground floor is the family bathroom and study, opening out onto the terrace.

There is also a laundry area with washing machine and dryer, a freezer and a second fridge. A cot, high chair and stair gates are available on request.

Further details outdoors

The riverside terrace is large and equipped with a barbecue, swinging hammock, table, chairs and loungers. Gated steps lead down to the private bank, from which you can fish (with the appropriate rod license). There is also a kayak for use by guests. However, it must be stressed that the river can be fast flowing and dangerous and only the experienced should use the kayak and only when the river is benign.

Also, the wall around the terrace is low and the drop from it deep, so young children must never be left unattended on the terrace.

Location description from owner

The North Wales region

Denbighshire in North East Wales delivers an amazing number of experiences for such a compact and easily accessible area. Stunning countryside, bustling market towns, two of Britain’s best-known resorts and many centuries of rich heritage combine to make Denbighshire a destination with a difference.

When you pay a visit to Denbighshire you can expect many indoor activities including water parks, craft centres, the fascinating Ruthin Gaol and magnificent castles where you can walk the town walls or drink in the stunning views. If you like the outdoors, Denbighshire offers fantastic walks for all abilities, canal boat rides and activities for all the family, or take advantage of the lovely beaches where you can spend the day sunbathing, enjoying watersports or even taking a donkey ride.

Llangollen

Carrog lies in the Dee Valley in North East Wales. There is a local pub, The Grouse Inn, which provides excellent food. The town of Corwen 2 miles away has local shops, banks and a Post Office. The ancient market town of Llangollen 7 miles away has many tourist attractions, good shopping and a wide range of pubs, bars and restaurants including the award winning Corn Mill. During the summer Llangollen is the venue for the world famous International Eisteddfod.

Carrog is ideally located to enjoy everything that North Wales has to offer. Snowdonia National Park is only a short distance away whilst both the North and West Coasts are within easy reach. Barmouth is only a 45 minute drive. The town of Bala with its lake is nearby and offers a wide range of water sports activities. There are mountains, rivers, canals, waterfalls, forests, lakes, mines, beaches, castles, railways and architectural gems such as Portmeirion all within a short drive.

The Llangollen Railway runs steam trains for 7 miles along the banks of the River Dee from Llangollen to Carrog through some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK. It operates most of the year and Carrog station is the ideal starting point for an unforgettable experience.

Visit Plas Newydd home to the Ladies of Llangollen, Lady Eleanor Butler and Miss Sarah Ponsonby, from 1780 - 1829. They became celebrated throughout the country as the story of their friendship spread through Regency Society. The house retains the Gothic features they introduced and is set in peaceful gardens with objects of interest, including the font from the nearby ruins of the Valle Crucis Abbey.

Take a walk or horse drawn boat ride down the Llangollen Canal which leaves the Shropshire Union Canal just north of Nantwich in rural Cheshire and climbs through deserted Shropshire farmlands to cross the border into Wales near Chirk. It then cuts through increasingly hilly countryside to finish alongside the River Dee tumbling out of Snowdonia, just above Llangollen at the world famous Horse Shoe Falls.

Walk or take a barge ride across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, now a World Heritage Site. The famous engineer, Thomas Telford, built Pontcysyllte Aqueduct near Llangollen in 1795 and the structure continues to represent a masterpiece of Georgian engineering.

Visit the award winning Ruthin Craft and Applied Arts Centre. Enjoy and take in the three galleries, six artist studios, retail gallery, education and residency workshops, tourist information gateway and then finish with tea or a meal at the Centre café with courtyard terrace. Whilst in Ruthin, take in this beautiful county town with its fine market square, castle and gaol.

Visit the Rhug Estate and organic farm which covers 12,500 acres extending from Gwyddelwern in the north, Carrog to the east, Cynwyd to the south and Maerdy to the west. The estate runs traditional sporting including shooting and fishing, modern sports such as rally car driving, gorge walking, mountain biking, canoeing and public events.

Lake Vyrnwy is well worth a visit. It’s spectacular as are the routes there and back (about 1hour each way) and there’s is lots to do including bike hire – 12 miles around the lake all flat and few cars!

“A lovely cottage, well equipped and a friendly feel.”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2017

The layout of this cottage over four floors tucked into the bank of the river Dee offers unique and very pleasing accommodation. The view over the river is south facing and the terrace would be magnificent in the summer months. Being over four floors it could be a challenge for anyone who has trouble tackling stairs. We enjoyed walking straight from the house and we had a great trip on the Llangollen Steam railway. Our winter visit tested the heating system and it coped magnificently, it was toasty warm. Lots of cups plates pots and pans, we never ran out. Many personal touches and little gifts and welcome pack on arrival made us feel very welcome.

“Perfect!”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2012

What a wonderfully idyllic place to stay. Clean and comfortable for the whole family. Magic in the mornings watching fish jumping, will definitely return with the fishing rods.

“Great cottage in a fabulous location”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2012

Fabulous cottage right on the River. The booking was very easy and the service provided by the owners was very good. The pub over the road does a wicked roast and the location is very quiet and central

“Superb property in a perfect location”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2012

What a fantastic place! Wales' best kept secret - well, it was! There were three couples in our party and there was plenty of room for us all. Stayed for a long weekend. The house is decorated to a very high standard and I've never seen such a well equiped kitchen. Everything is there to make your stay enjoyable, from games, films and books to candles. The bedrooms are comfortable, we all slept very well. The two bathrooms are finished to a very high standard. The living areas are spacious. Attention to detail is fantastic. Now the best bit.... the location. Right on the banks of the river, the views are fabulous. We could have stayed in the garden for our entire stay and when the weather is as good as it was for our weekend you wouldn't want to be anywhere else. There is ample garden furniture for everyone and a bbq is provided. There is a great pub close to the house which serves very good home cooked food and lovely real ales. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The property is a five minute walk from the steam railway station where you can get a train into Llangollen. Tip - pay the extra £1 and travel 1st class! A wonderful stay. Will certainly return next year hopefully for a longer stay

“Superb property, wonderful location”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2012

A very confortable property with all the amenities you could want. Well situated on the banks of the River Dee, quiet and peacefull, The Grouse pub serving good food and beer within 50m. We loved the view from the living room across the Dee towards the bridge in fact there was nothing about the property that we did not like, a home from home.

“Peaceful retreat”

Reviewed 2 May 2012

Sat on the bank of the river Dee this house gave us the perfect peaceful spot that we were looking for. Warm and cosy with plenty of space to chill out after a soak in the roll top bath. Disturbed only by the sound of the river and the whistle of the steam railway, we were able to relax. Our only dilemma was if we should go to the pub for a pint and supper, again ( well it's only a hundred meters away), or if we should cook for ourselves and enjoy it with a beer on our own terrace overlooking the river ... Penlan is a lovely place just to get away from it all...

“Lovely Cottage, beautifully located”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2012

We stayed in Penlan cottage as part of a big family trip to North Wales. Due to numbers, the family members were spread across a number of different properties and locations, but I think we came up trumps with this one! The cottage is right on the banks of a river (Dee?) and has the most amazing views. We were able to sit out on the river terrace and watch the sun set behind the hills on the other side of the valley, even though it was only March - perfect place for a glass of wine. The inside of the house is simply and tastefully decorated. Everything looked fresh and clean, which is important to me. Beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is a proper size and has a decent dining table (I find the kitchen in rental properties is often very small). There is also a good size sitting room with two big sofas - so plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Plenty to do in the local area - we filled our time with walking, eating and drinking! I would highly recommend. We're already talking about going back for a long weekend sometime in the summer - but just the two of us this time!
