Historic house between Wrexham and Llangollen (via the spectacular Horseshoe Pass). Great facilities laid out with thought and consideration.
What makes Plas yn ial so special is the care and thoughtfulness of the owners - they have thought of everything. It is beautifully presented, everything is good quality and appropriate, there is wifi, Netflix, lots of books, and lots of information about walks and places to go. Oh, and the bed is super comfy! The biggest plus for us was the lovely outdoor space, with the garden house and patio for sitting out and a fab zip wire and swinging ropes for the kids. We were staying for a family occasion, and the owners were very tolerant of lots of family members coming and going in the grounds. A lovely experience.
the accommodation was beautiful, warm and cosy, with everything we needed. The bedrooms lead into each other which might be a problem for 2 couples sharing. Llangollen is a short drive away, there are brilliant places to visit all around, and lovely walks on the farm itself. Our hosts were friendly and hospitable. we would definitely stay here again.
Travelling as a family of four (two kids 14 and 10) this was an ideal get away self-catering property which offered easy access to Zipworld, Surf Snowdonia and Whitewater rafting on the River Dee. All generations of the Beech family made us feel very welcome on their beautiful farm - giving us local tips of places to see and places to eat. House and grounds were a perfect base for us to explore North Wales. We loved the grounds and enjoyed using the BBQ area on several occasions - which overlooks the heather covered hills. A generous welcome basket was provided including local Welsh treats and great coffee! The house has plenty of space and was very nicely decorated. We felt totally welcome and at home. We definitely hope to stay here again in the near future.
Huw and his family couldn't have made us feel more welcome or made our stay more enjoyable. My husband and I together with our little boy (19 months) had a fantastic time. In beautiful surroundings and lovely house, Plas Yn Ial is everything we could have wished for. Our little boy was in his element with the amazing garden, swings, toys and books...topped off with a ride on Farmer Ivor's tractor. He still calls every red tractor Ivor's now!
A great location for exploring Wales with lots of great days put nearby. We have recommend the house to all our family and friends and we hope to return ourselves very soon.
A wonderful house situated in a beautiful area, which is so often overlooked by people rushing to Snowdonia.
A short walk through the grounds brings you to a hill, with a 360° view point – great for an early morning or evening stroll. From nearby Panderosa, we had 2 lovely walks; one to Castle Dinas Bran and back along the side of the magnificent Eglwyseg Mountains and another along the Llantysilio Mountain. This was once known as Yale Mountain and the historical significance of the Yales and this house all added to the enjoyment of our stay. Our kind hosts were a mind of information about both the house and the area.
Further afield there are plenty of interesting towns and places to visit or you could just spend days in the cottage and garden enjoying the view and reading the wide range of local books. We never had time for any of the extensive DVD collection!
