Wonderful stay in Swallows cottage. Simon and Katherine could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The cottage was equipped with everything we might ever need and more. Views stunning and log fire very welcome, great location for exploring this part of Wales and although cannot walk to the pub it is only a short drive to Llangollen. Would love to come and stay again. And we can verify that rainbows do happen!

My Family and I stayed for the weekend at Swallows Cottage. Beautiful place with stunning views and lots of wildlife. Everything was catered for our needs and we received a lovely welcome pack from the hosts. I would definitely recommend staying here, such a peaceful, lovely cottage.

Swallow is a lovely cottage with a beautiful front garden and a stunning view onto surrounding mountains. Some walks are within walking distance or short drive away, Langollen with its many attractions only 15min to drive and the very nice Bala lake just 1/2hr. The cottage was sparkling clean, bedrooms nicely prepared and the kitchen well equipped. Host was very friendly and extremely helpful. We had a pleasant stay at a great location.

Having spent a week in Simon & Katherine's Swallow Cottage, we can't recommend this highly enough. With a disabled member of our party, he found the facilities a lot better than other bespoke accommodation he has used. We were made to feel very welcome from the outset and nothing was too much trouble. Simon's accessible alterations he has planned for the winter should make it even easier for wheelchair bound users. Beautiful views and native wildlife are very close at hand. A lot of nice touches were really appreciated on our arrival. Thank you guys, we'll be back!!

This was our second visit to Dee Valley Cottages. We booked both cottages,this time we stayed in Wagtails, once again the attention to detail is fantastic. Both cottages were absolutely spotless. Simon is a font of local knowledge. The views are amazing from either cottage. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Absolutely superb! Fantastic views from beautiful accommodation. My 94 year old mum loved it. The cottage is well adapted to disability issues. We loved the open fire and watching the birds on the feeders. Brilliant hosts who thought of everything.

Lovely cottages situated in beautiful surroundings with outstanding views. Terraces and garden for outdoor entertaining. We were a party of 8 and took both cottages. The cottages are cosy and individual and the owners very helpful. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

The setting is ideal. Far away enough to be a peaceful retreat but close enough to visit all the local attractions. Visited Chester twice which is only 35 minutes in the car. The Llangollen Railway literally runs past the bottom of the field next to the cottage. A trip on the train is a worthwhile treat. We will definitely return here again.

What a lovely and relaxing stay at swallows cottage . The cottage was cosy and adequate for a family of 4 including 1 2 year old and 1 dog. The bedrooms are good sized ( which u can easily fit a travel cot if needs be ). The kitchen is well equipped and the cottage has everything u need for a relaxing holiday. The views are idellique and my son enjoyed watching the sheep in the field and watching the train at the bottom of the field which can be seen from the cottage . I would highly recommend this beautiful cottage and would defiantly like to return in the near future .
