“Cosy and clean cottage with spectacular view!”

I stayed with my partner and our dog for 3 nights. We did not arrive until evening time and it was already dark. We did miss the road once but the cottage was not difficult to find overall - just need to follow the direction step by step. The owners were very considerate, the heating was on before therefore when we arrived in the evening the house was already warm. We did not see the view until we woke up the next morning - it was beautiful! It was ashamed that we only stayed for 3 nights, therefore too much to see in too little time, and we definitely did not have enough time to relax in the cottage. Love to go back in summer time! Had a really good time, thank you Richard and Jenny!

Thank you for your review, we are so pleased that we met your expectations, it is always a pleasure to hear. It was good to know you both enjoyed yourselves. There are so many things to see and do around here that 3 days can be gone so quickly, we are still discovering new places of interest after living here for fifteen years! The seasons all have their characteristics, in fact each week or even within a day we can be given different perspectives on the beautiful countryside.

Home from home but with views to die for. Great location very near to lots of places of interest. The cottage is very cosy with all the equipment you'd ever need on holiday. Don't often want to return to the same place twice but would defiantly stay here again.

“Hidden piece of paradise”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Spent a week in Langollen with family (girls 13 and 8). Cottage is quaint , well equipped and clean. We all thoroughly enjoyed our week. Girls were so busy - TV was never switched on. Owner Richard was very helpful and wanted to ensure we had what we needed. Good views over the valley and easy access to walk to the river and steam line (with dog). A truly beautiful part of the country.
We have all come back thinking only nice thoughts about the whole holiday.

Thank you for your comments, we feel the same way about the area around here. So pleased that you were able to take advantage of the many activities. It gives us a level of vicarious enjoyment when our guests are so obviously full of enthusiasm. Though I think the dogs may be missing their extra fusses this week.

We are always pleased to receive bookings from guests who have been before. We do enjoy hearing what guests have enjoyed (sometimes what they haven't enjoyed too) on their ventures out from the cottages. We love this area, and hearing the experiences of others helps us identify not only where we want to explore further, but helps us make suggestions to others who may ask. Thank you for your review, we do hope we see you again. If only to pop in for cup of tea if you are in the area.

We are still here in the cottage, and I am looking out of the magnificent bedroom window of swallow cottage. The views are simply amazing, and the location is superb. You simply could not ask for anything better. Its 7am and the sun has just burnt off the morning mist. Super walks from right outside your door, or take a short drive to visit many of the spectacular local sites. Jenny and Richard provide everything you need, snowy white bed linen and towels, along with a lovley hamper of food is awaiting you on arrival. WiFi connection cannot be faulted. Guess what....We will be booking another stay xx

Thank you for this review, if you come again in the better, more clement weather you will not only hear the trains, but also see them from the garden when we have the furniture out from undercover. It is always a pleasure to us when the trains start again after their short winter break, a bit like the return of first Swallows indicate summer's return, the return of the trains, when we see them chugging along at the bottom of the field is a reminder that spring will soon be on it's way.
