“Home away from home, but better”
Reviewed 21 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were a group of 2 couples, 2 adults, a baby and a dog. There was ample room for all of us. Penlan cottage was everything you could possibly want. The kitchen was equipped with all mod cons, and some gadgets you probably wouldn't even need!
There were loads of dvds, vidoes and cds. There was also a welcome tray of local produce, milk and butter that was very much appreciated.
The surrounding area had some lovely walks. Carrog train station was just around the corner. You can get the steam train from here to Llangollen, a definite must if you get the chance.
We would love to return here in the future. Thanks for having us!!

“Top Draw”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Base for WRC Wales Rally GB, absolutely stunning views and great location. Unbelievable standard of premises for rental, it felt like it was your own home therefore you want to respect it and want to be considered for next year. The whole experience was not to be forgotten for next year. Not Ideal with no parking but the landlady of the Grouse Inn was more than accommodating and would be rude to not have the odd pint as passing through!

“Hidden Gem.....”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Tranquil setting for a house that lacks nothing. We stayed for 4 nights mid July spending most of the time on the patio over looking the river. In fact watching our son catch fish which we cooked on the bar-b-que. We also made use of the local pub which served great food, We are planning to go back later in the year. Highly recommended.

“WOW yet again!!!!”
Reviewed 23 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We have just returned from this beautiful setting, our second visit in s few months.

The location is divine, especially on a very pleasant warm day.

I can highly recommend staying here, the house has everything you need!!

The Grouse, a 45 second walk, is great for a cold beer, the outside beer garden looking over the valley is great.

If you're thinking of going then please don't book as we want to go back every weekend ;-)

“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?

Everything you need and more in this beautiful cottage, views that draw you back time after time and lovely local walks. Could have stayed longer and would love to return.
