A well equipped comfortable cottage just inside Wales. The kitchen is well appointed with a new electric range cooker and all the other mod cons needed. Full instructions for use are also provided unlike some cottages. Main bedroom is large with a very comfortable bed, the galley nature of this was barely noticeable as there were just the two of us, although I can see that if you came with a family you would want to use the curtain provided to give some privacy. The bathroom is perfectly adequate if somewhat compact. The property was well cleaned and ready on our arrival. The sighting of the cottage was perfect for visiting Llangollen with it's steam railway and canal/aqueducts, both of which are recommended visits, Bala and its lake and railway, Chester with it's Roman history as well as Shrewsbury and Welshpool. The village stores locally and in Chirk are good as are the butchers in Llangollen and Chirk. Our only real criticism was the on road parking which although adequate in itself made it difficult to turn around without using nearby driveways which we were asked not to do. Other than that a good place to stay and one we could use again in the future.

The cottage itself was lovely , it was lovely and clean small but comfortable how ever we felt it was to far away from anywhere we had to travel 15 miles to the nearest town just to get to see my daughters which was the hole point of us staying there was to be able to spend Christmas with them we couldn’t even get a phone signal (which I think this should be said when booking ) there was nothing to visit even the pubs would not allow you to take your dogs into there was one shop ..

We had a great weekend at this cottage it was lovely and cosy.. A well equipped kitchen, very clean and a quiet location. Good local shops and parks for the children. We found it a great base for days out and several local pubs for tea out. We would recommend this cottage to anyone considering staying here.

Lovely cottage.. Lovely location. Everything you could wish for in a home from home.

The garden was not as securely enclosed as I would have liked but not bad, the decking area was in need of some repair and tidying up and the path up to it was overgrown (stinging nettles got me a couple of times).. This is my only criticism as a dog friendly cottage, I had to supervise dogs outside as there were a couple of places they could have got out, especially as there were several cats surrounding the cottage that may have been too much temptation to chase after. The cottage itself was well equipped and provided a great base for exploring North Wales. We had a great holiday. Thank you.

A beautiful, cosy cottage with everything that needed for a short holiday.. The well-equipped kitchen and snug living room with its open fire were perfect for staying in, and with the pub only a short walk down the road, this was also an easy option for eating out. Sitting outside to enjoy coffee and soak up the morning sunshine was a lovely relaxing way to start the day. Although I usually prefer private parking, it was never an issue to park opposite the house which made loading and unloading very convenient. Just be aware of the traffic that passes immediately in front of, and very close to, the gate. Local walks and a trip to Llangollen were made even more enjoyable by the cooperative weather.

The cottage was beautiful , well equipped with toiletries and washing up items ( not experienced this before ) in a lovely village , we had some lovely days out using the leaflets left at the cottage and reading the visitors book , the only thing I would say is that I went with my mum and I let her have the king size bed , I took the twin room , those beds were extremely uncomfortable , I had no sleep on the first night , so we swapped rooms x we would recommend staying at the cottage but we wouldn’t stay again with those beds I’m sorry x

This cottage is the perfect location to explore North Wales from, it's easy reach (with a car) as far as Anglesey one way and to Chester the other way. The village has all you need, there is a shop which sells everything and it's in walking distance of the cottage. The walk is also all on a pathway, so it's also a safe walk. We stayed during February so were using the open fire, and you can get all you need for the fire at the local shop too. The cottage has two bedrooms with the main bedroom being separated with a curtain. So it's ideal for a couple and even a couple with kids, but it probably wouldn't suit two couples, but a girlie weekend would work. The cottage is deceptively roomy on the inside, with a good size kitchen with a cooker range, dining table and everything in the kitchen you could possible need. The master bedroom is very large with plenty of room for your clothes and bits. It's a comfy bed too. You know when you go away and you never sleep properly the first night, well that didn't happen, we slept through 11 hours, we were disgusted with ourselves, but proved the bed must have been comfortable. The bathroom has a shower over the bath and the towles are lovely and soft. We would certainly go again, ideal spot, lovely cottage and beautiful area.

This property is extremely well located for walks in the hills and woods straight from the doorstep.. In the winter, it was cosy with the woodburner and comfortable for 4 adults. The property is suitable for dogs, and our little terrier was very happy there, but I would certainly recommend it to non-dog owners as well; the furnishings and carpets are clean, and there is no smell (so beloved to many dog owners) to suggest that dogs have ever lived there. We had a lovely, relaxing weekend break.

Such a lovely hidden gem in a picturesque village.. There was even a craft fair on with a meet and greet with Santa so my 2 year old was over the moon. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. Just to let any future guest know that one of the local pubs The Oak is closed however, there is another local pub close by that serves Swiss food, a spa and plenty pubs/restaurants in driving distance. However the cottage is so well equipped making dining in nice and easy. Overall such a fantastic break away.

The blurb from Sykes is pretty much accurate so I do not need to elaborate on what the cottage offers. It really is well equipped. I don't think our wants were very demanding but it didn't seem to lack anything except perhaps storage for clothes and personal belongings in the bedroom with 2 beds. I would highlight positively the shower, the water colour paintings on the walls, the outside table (as long as it is sunny!) and the fact that it is close to the Spar supermarket as others have mentioned. There are also a selection of DVDs, puzzles and games which I always like to find at a holiday cottage. Roadside parking may sound something of a hazard but we had no problem at all. I rarely even had to practise my parallel parking! The following comments are not intended to be negative, just to try to indicate whether this place is suitable for your family/group. It is not a big cottage but both the main rooms (sitting room and kitchen/dining) are absolutely fine. The kitchen particularly is bright and airy. We were joined for the day by another family of 5 and with some help from good weather, allowing us to eat one meal outside, coped without problem. The steps to the bedrooms are steep. My 90 year old father managed them but, as both bedrooms are upstairs, I don't think this would work for anyone severely disabled. I would also mention that there is no lawn or 'play area' in the garden. Some of you may need to know that bookings for this cottage are usually done from a Friday to Friday. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my week in the cottage. I would certainly recommend it, both as a place to stay in itself and as a centre for visiting many interesting and beautiful places around.

Second time we have stayed here and it was good as last time. On arrival the cottage was very clean and tidy. It has everything you need and good wi-fi was helpful as there is little or no phone signal in the valley. Nice to have a log fire every night that keeps the cottage warm and cozy. Pub that has good food and a shop both in easy walking distance. There is also I good play area and large field near as well. Will go back

My husband and myself was looking for a relaxing get away from the city and we definitely got it here. It is a lovely cottage with everything u need, the owners have thought of literally everything even the little touches to make it feel home from home. There's a open fire which is so lovely on those winters evenings although the cottage is lovely and warm without it but it's so cosy with it ! The views from the cottage are great and the surrounding area is lovely, there's so many walks and sights to see. And the people are so friendly we went to the oak pub just down from the cottage a few times during our stay and the food is lovely and the owners and staff are so welcoming and friendly we have had a lovely holiday and we can't wait to go back !! We would totally recommend this cottage

The cottage was very quaint, warm and cosy. It was extremely clean and a folder in the cottage explained how everything worked. I would definitely stay at this cottage again.

I Loved the log fire location of the property. I have never stayed somewhere so well equipped. There are good pubs in the village, a well stocked post office local shop. The front garden is lovely to sit out and drink tea/coffee from morning til mid afternoon.

The cottage was very well equipped and presented beautifully, particularly the soft furnishings downstairs. The quality of furniture and crockery was evident and everything felt as if it had been bought specifically with guests of the cottage in mind. It is clear that the owners have put a lot of time, thought and money into equipping the cottage and that made staying there really pleasurable.

The cottage was based in a beautiful place and the local people were so friendly. We were able to make use of local transport and access all the places we wanted to. The cottage had everything we needed, was ideal for our dogs and it was so nice to have a secure garden. I have already recommended it to other family members.

The property was well equipped and wonderfully warm. It is very convenient for the local shop, hotel and pub and there are wonderful walks on your doorstep.

A fantastic and accessible cottage. It was wonderful not to be faced by a mountainous drive (as is so often the case when I have travelled to Wales). The furnishings were beautiful and another fantastic point was that the garden was secure enough for the dogs (and our dogs are small). We could relax knowing that they were safe. Finally we really loved the local pub/restaurants-superb food and great service..if we had stayed any longer we would have come back considerably larger.
Mrs Roberts
January 2015
We loved the tasteful way the cottage had been furnished, it's open fire and luxurious bed. Also it's close proximity to local pubs (one of which had excellent food), and lovely, varied walks from the cottage. The owners were exceedingly helpful and friendly as were the villagers. It's also a beautiful part of Wales and close to Chester and Liverpool for days out.
