we stayed at velvet cottage for a 3 night weekend break, oct 24th -27th and had great weather the drive from manchester was about an hour and a half and its easy enough to find, off road parking for only one car, cottage is really good everything you need is there and the views are amazing nice touch as well with the heating on low so it was nice and warm when we arrived plus a bottle of pop and a wine on the kitchen table,if your taller than 5ft 5ish you will be banging your head on the door frames upstairs as they are low but it adds to the cottagey feel, it is an old building, my 2 boys loved the single bedroom its small and cavern like but there nana got that room much to there disappointment owners are very responsive and very welcoming and they give you a printout with a few walks to do we did a couple, we went on the aqueduct boat trip takes about 2 hours and is very interesting with brilliant views, llangollen centre is very nice and it seems to be busy with tourists from around the world, near the cottage is an derelict abbey which is worth a look around, there are no streetlights around the cottage so it is very very dark so a torch is needed which is provided in the cottage if you venture out after dark, pub nearby the abbey grange is not very nice which is a shame. i wouldnt recommend eating here but everyone is different and likes different things, great cottage great break would and have recomended and will hopefully stay again

good points
location is picturesque apart from the road you could be in the middle of nowhere
walks are great with great views
cottage is well priced and positioned
llangollen is a short walk away and worth a visit
cottage is warm and cosy

bad points
wifi is patchy but you are in the countryside
only one parking bay (not an issue for us)
