A spacious kitchen with a Nespresso machine and a large island makes a convivial place to prepare food and the adjacent dining room has a table for 6 as well as a wood burner for cosy winter meals or for a quiet read on one of the recliners listening to the record/cd player which also has Bluetooth. The sitting room has a TV with Freeview, Netflix and Amazon Prime (please use your own accounts) and a sofa and chairs for 6 together with a desk if you need to catch up with work. WiFi is available too. Outside: On the large patio there is a table and benches and extra seating from where you can enjoy the sunset behind the ruined castle. There is also a brick built barbecue. Behind the house there is a table tennis table, basketball net and a sauna for 2 people (please bring towels for this) and a storage shed if you want to bring your bikes or store golf equipment. There is ample private parking for at least 2 cars. There are short and long walks directly from the door and the town of Llangollen is 1.4 miles/35 min walk for shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and the attractions of the steam train, horse drawn canal trips, white water rafting, canoeing, Plas Newydd house and gardens and Horseshoe Falls. Llangollen Golf Club is a 7 min walk or 1 minute drive from the cottage. Sorry no smoking or pets at present. Small children are welcome but there are no stair gates and there is quite a slope from the terrace so young children will need to be supervised. Bed linen, towels (excl sauna), fuel including a starter pack of fire wood included in the price. Some of the ceilings are low!More

This was truly a home from home. Normally there is always something we need that has not been provided but not this time! Antonia has thought of everything you need to make sure your stay is perfect. The house was very welcoming, bright, and tastefully furnished. The location is excellent for exploring the Dee Valley and local areas with beautiful walks straight form the doorstep. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay at Pen Y Bryn, 4 adults and 2 children for 3 nights. Accommodation is perfect for families, which offers 3 bed rooms all en-suite and a restroom downstairs. It’s a clean spacious property with a wide variety of entertainment, including, board games, record player with a great selection of LPs! table tennis, sauna and Netflix for the kids. Location is perfect for exploring Llangollen and the surrounding countryside, there is a great walk just at the bottom of the driveway and the town centre is just 5 minutes by car. The views from the property itself are stunning and you could quite easily spend hours relaxing and enjoying the scenery, magical! Thanks Antonia for a great stay.

We (2 small families) booked Anotonia's place for a short holiday (three nights) last month for the beautiful Wales. We found the place stunningly beautiful & tranquil. The views (from inside & open) were spectacular & picturesque with multiple outdoor seating options. The house was tastefully decorated, stylishly furnished and very well equipped. We played the available music system and joyfully appreciated the selection (DVDs, LPs). The cleanliness level in the whole house was impressive, especially the bathrooms and additionally for one of their features to be with the "sunroof"....😉 Antonia S. (the owner) was kind to greet us, debriefed about the area and continued her follow up (via messages) to ensure if all was good with everything. We all are utterly grateful for a delightful & relaxing family time at your home Antonia. Thank you and good luck for the future🤞. (PS: This review is kindly recast & paraphrased by my Dear wife as my phrasing skills are horrible...😂😍)

Pen Y Bryn is a very special place to stay. It is set in the middle of spectacular scenery. It is a stunning property with amazing views out of every window. Antonia was very helpful. She has thought of everything anyone may need. We were thoroughly entertained by the table tennis / fire pit / sauna / basket ball hoop / games / cds and records. It is an extremely comfortable place to stay. The terrace is a gorgeous area to relax. It is spacious and inviting. We all loved to sit here and take in the views in this peaceful, idyllic setting. We didn’t want to leave and we can’t wait to go back. We loved going in to Llangollen town. It was ideal only being 5 minutes away. We really enjoyed a boat trip across the aquaduct. Thank you Antonia. We will be returning again and again.

My wife and I visited this idilic cottage in the beautiful welsh countryside for five days and didn’t want to leave. The cottage was perfect for us as we have a six month old baby boy. We could relax, have meals outside over looking the hills, walk locally or drive into the nearby town. It really is the perfect cottage to forget about the hustle and bustle of life and just sit and take the world in. Antonia was lovely and welcomed us when we arrived. She really had thought of everything and made us feel like it was our home for those five days. Will be visiting again and again.

The cottage is much bigger than photos suggest. Clean, comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Close to Llangollen, Chirk and Errdig . Table tennis table outside, firepit and log burner added extra amenities. Lovely walk up to Castle Dinas from where we could see the cottage . We enjoyed using the vinyl record player and having breakfast on the terrace. Antonia was a wonderful host answering questions about our stay.

We stayed at Pen Y Bryn Barn for just 3 nights and didn't want to leave. It is only a short drive off of the main A5 but feels a lot further afield as it is set in beautiful countryside with glorious views of the Llangollen (River Dee) valley. The Barn is fully equipped with everything that you could ever need. We can't wait to go back.

We stayed at this delightful cottage for four nights when we visited the area for a wedding. Antonia, the owner, was there to meet us and show us around. She was very friendly and helpful. She also contacted us by text the following day just to make sure all was ok. The cottage has the most incredible views and is in a very beautiful and tranquil area. It’s a very comfortable cottage, with everything supplied for a perfect stay. We all commented on how well we slept during our stay. I’d definitely book again when we are back in the area. Thank you Antonia for a fantastic stay.

The cottage is very well equipped and was perfect for our three generation meet up. It has a stunning location and plenty of space both inside and outside. There is much to do near by. Chirk Castle is a short drive or a long but beautiful walk; Llangollen is within walking distance; we all enjoyed kayaking on the canal and over the viaduct and one of us enjoyed mountain biking from the door. There are also many walks, and plenty straight from the door. Lots of sheep for the three year old.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage sits in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty overlooking the beautiful Dee Valley and has views of Dinas Bran castle and the surrounding rolling hills. The area is very quiet and rural and there is little to disturb the peace apart from birdsong and the bleating of sheep. Llangollen itself has food shops such as Co-op and Aldi but also independent delis, grocers and a host of cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants. It is alive with locals, tourists, walkers and adventure seekers. Bigger supermarkets can be found in Ruabon, Rhosymedre and Wrexham
Getting around
Llangollen and all its attractions are walkable straight from the door of the cottage, as is the famous aqueduct at Froncysyllte. A car is recommended for towns and walks further afield. The nearest train stations are at Chirk and Ruabon, between 6 and 7 miles away, both of which give access to Chester, Shrewsbury and beyond to London.
