“Perfect all rounder.”
Reviewed 15 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Stayed with friends over the New Year period. Lovely house everything you need and more for a great retreat. Views are fantastic. Pub across the road is very welcoming. Definitely worth a visit to this great unspoilt place.

“The Perfect Break!”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed at this beautiful cottage for New Year with friends and had the most perfect break. Everything you would need was provided. Apart from lovely riverside walks, the only times we left the cottage was to visit the Grouse Inn across the road for great food, or for a trip into Llangollen on the amazing steam train. The station was 5 minutes away. Perfect views, peace and quiet, no driving, can't wait to return for a summer break!

“Beautiful house and location”

This is a lovely find, marvellous views from the house with access to river fishing.

A good pub across the road and steam trains run from Llangollen to Carrog station on a regular basis ,what's not to like?
We had a lovely family holiday here !!!!

“A paradise on a trout stream in the Welsh mountains”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

Penlan Cottage is a superb place to stay if you are looking for spectacular views, comfortable accomodation, wi-fi, large kitchen, great family bathroom, lovely terrace on a stream full of trout and salmon, peace and quiet and perhaps the finest pub in all of Wales with terrific food and a large terrace within staggering distance. The owners could not be more helpful. The area is a walker's paradise. Good selection of shops, restaurants within a few miles. I will definitely be going back to this gem.

“Well-equipped and spacious cottage in beautiful location.”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Stayed at Penlan cottage with young family (and dog!) for Christmas week. Decorations and Christmas tree were provided which gave the cottage a lovely Christmas feel. Plenty to do in the area and lovely walks straight from the cottage. Would definitely visit again.

“A great cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 19 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

We booked Penlan Cottage at short notice to enjoy the autumnal hues and the beautiful scenery and had a marvellous week with our family.
The cottage is very well appointed and in the perfect position on the banks of the River Dee. The owners could not be more helpful with a welcome pack to greet you.
The Grouse Inn did good food and real ale, and parking just 35 yards from the cottage.
The Llangollen steam railway trip to Carrog station was memorable, as were visits to Lake Vyrnwy and Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

“Fantastic Location”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

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!
