“As good as we remembered!”
Reviewed 23 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We returned to penlan cottage 2 years after our first visit and instantly felt at home once again.
This is the perfect place to just kick back and relax with a stunning backdrop. Plenty of places to explore within easy reach and a pub across the road that serves up hearty meals that are superb. Go and you won't be disappointed, need I say more?

“The Perfect Break!”

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”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

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”

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.
