Fantastic cottage.. four of us just spent 7 days at Penymaas to celebrate New Year (very good value considering the time of year, worked out at just a tad over £25 per person, per night. You couldn't get B&B for that, and we had the whole cottage, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a superb Kitchen/diner, very comfortable lounge with huge wood burner that kept the whole cottage very warm and cosy, there is also a laundry room/utility and a boot room to get out of your muddy things before entering the cottage to the kitchen, downstairs bedroom or lounge) Owner lives just behind the cottage but trees and shrubs make sure you are not overlooked and your privacy is assured.
Susan (the owner) is very friendly and could not have been more attentive to anything we required, and it has to be said, she is the finest baker of cakes and mince pies in all of Shropshire. Outside, the garden is beautifully maintained with patio heater and possible seating for 22, yes, 22 people, you could hold your own garden party here overlooking the valley towards Chirk and beyond into Wales.
Western Rhyn is within 10 minutes walk, with shop and choice of Pubs, recommended is The Plough, a little further to walk in the village but worth it, Landlord extremely friendly to visitors, will meet you wearing a big smile and a bow tie.
If Shropshire is on one of your places to visit then do, do consider this cottage, you will not be disappointed.
Oh, forgot to mention, the owner of Penymaas also owns another property on the aqueduct over the river Dee which is at 3 to 4 miles, a good walk or a short drive. Not to be missed if you're in the area.
This cottage is 5 star plus.
