“Loved this cottage!”
Reviewed August 20, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We all loved this holiday cottage - parents, teenager and 10 year old. The views out of the lounge and kitchen were glorious - never have I enjoyed washing up before! The kitchen was well equipped and spacious. The lounge was very comfortable with a good stock of dvd's and video's - not that we watched any as the view was amazing. A choice of 3 bedrooms - all comfortable, airy and clean. A compact shower room - and a large bathroom. We spent most of time on the terrace and by the river both fishing and trying to catch tiddlers. We made ourselves known to the Grouse Inn and had no problem parking there. We enjoyed several drinks there and an extremely tasty meal. Lots of places to visit nearby - a trip to Llangollen, Post Merion and also Liverpool. Would certainly stay here again.

“Excellent and Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The location of the Cottage is remarkable. Right on the river Dee overlooking green meadows.
Beautiful nature walks in the vicinity. Quiet and pleasantly removed.
Across the cottage is a very pleasant family pub.
The owners are extremely pleasant and helpful.
Cottage is very well equipped and has all one needs for a fantastic vacation.

One small comment: Cottage has several stories and thus staircases. People with mobility problems might find this a bit challenging and should consult with the owners who will be glad to advise.

“Comfortable Cottage - Wonderful Views”
Reviewed September 25, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This cottage is in the most beautiful location and has all the home comforts you need. The views are amazing and it's so peaceful. The pub which is almost opposite the cottage is welcoming and serves lovely food. We loved it here.

“My idea of the perfect get away from it all!”
Reviewed July 28, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Penlan is in a beautiful setting, well equipped and close to many attractions. Wales has so much to offer and finding time to do it all is difficult. We ate out at The Grouse Inn and the Corn Mill both we can recommend. We had a 5yr old and 3 yr old who loved paddling in the river and sat for ages looking out of the window watching the tractors and birds.. We saw a Heron and a Kingfisher and it was a competition to see who could spot the fish. Locally Llangollen has many things to see and do, Chirk has a beautiful castle and of course Snowden for walking and climbing. A lovely short holiday.

“Comfortable cottage in an idyllic location”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We spent a week at Penlan and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, despite the less than favourable weather. The views are wonderful and the cottage itself is very well equipped. Sally was quick to respond to all my emails and accommodating with requests. We loved watching the river below. Lots to do in the area - days out to Snowdon, mountain railways, Llangollen, canal trips, Bounce Below (for the kids), slate mines, Lake Vyrnwy, walks, and a good pub just behind the cottage. We all agreed (Grandma, 10 and 13 yr olds, and parents) that we'd like to return.
