I can't add a lot more than what has already been said about this cottage on the banks of the River Dee. This was our second visit and this time we spent only 2 nights, it was supposed to be 3 but we wanted to get home before the much publicised storm on Sun/Mon night! We were very comfortable, cosy and warm in Penlan and felt relaxed even though it was such a short stay. Only minutes from the Grouse Inn with it's good pub food and friendly staff, what more could you want!

Spent 3 nights at Penlan Cottage with 6 adults and a 4 year old. The cottage is perfectly located with great views over the river Dee and bridge. Rooms are comfy and spacious. Cottage has everything you need and the welcoming pack (bread, egg, milk etc) was very much appreciated. It's a very short walk to the Grouse Inn pub which does fantastic food (especially their chicken curry). If you're thinking of booking this cottage, do it!

“Beautiful views, lovely quiet village, well furnished spacious house.”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is well equipped and spacious and the view sepactacular. The house was clean and all the instructions very clear. Nearby Llangollen with the steam railway and canal gave us plenty to do. The local pub was good quality and good value too.

“Unbeatable home from home in North Wales.”

If, like us, your choice of holiday home demands perfection of location and property, look no further than Penlan Cottage in picturesque Carrog.

Situated on the banks of the River Dee some 12 miles beyond Llangollen, this is an attractive cottage on four levels with every possible amenity including its own grassy bank on the riverfront, a sublime terrace from which you will be unable to remove yourselves and accommodation that perfectly suits three couples, or, in our case a family of four.

Access to the A5 and most of the highlights of this lovely region is really easy. Don't miss the mountain railways, Llangollen, Lakes Bala and Vyrnwy and many other stunning localities. A bonus for trainspotters is Carrog Station 10 minutes walk away, currently the terminus for the Llangollen heritage railway. Unmissable, as is the nostalgic echo of steam and whistle down the valley.

The bedrooms are a decent size, the 2 bathrooms well-equipped, the living areas full of light and the sound of rushing water and the welcome pack generous to the extent of obviating any need for an immediate rush to the shops.

Don't agonise a moment longer. Just book it!

“perfect penlan”
Reviewed 27 June 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Very well equipped cottage in a wonderful location.
Perfect for families with children of 5 years plus. The stairs are steep and toddlers would need to be watched.
Excellent local pub. Great local walks
