Holiday Rental House
Positioned above a quiet lane and backed by National Trust owned Velvet Hill, Velvet Cottage is the perfect base to explore the wealth of outdoor activities available in the area, including a wide variety of walking right from the doorstep. Velvet Cottage is over 200 years old and features exposed beams and low doorways!! DUE TO THE EXTERNAL ACCESS STEPS AND AN INTERNAL STAIRCASE, THE COTTAGE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PERSONS OF LIMITED MOBILITY. There are three upstairs bedrooms - a superking double, a twin with optional sofa bed and a single bedroom. The terrace offers the opportunity for al fresco dining in warm weather, and the private sunbathing terrace at the rear of the property can be used for barbecues (equipment provided). Towels, bed linen, utility bills & unlimited UK landline phone ...Positioned above a quiet lane and backed by National Trust owned Velvet Hill, Velvet Cottage is the perfect base to explore the wealth of outdoor activities available in the area, including a wide variety of walking right from the doorstep.

Towels, bed linen, utility bills & unlimited UK landline phone calls & broadband are included in the booking price. Velvet Cottage has a large front garden which is not fully enclosed, so dogs will need to be supervised. Although Velvet Cottage offers privacy and peace, there are many local amenities. Abbey farm bar and bistro is just three minutes' walk away and offers hearty evening meals and wholesome country breakfasts. Abbey Grange Hotel, five minutes' walk away, features a range of beers brewed on the premises. Twenty minutes' walk will bring the visitor to the Chainbridge Hotel in one direction and the Britannia Inn in the other. Both feature excellent food in glorious surroundings. Llangollen, with it's wide variety of local shops and restaurants, is thirty magical minutes' walk down the Llangollen canal.More

Interaction with guests
We live 35 miles away and we appreciate that what holidaymakers value above all else is privacy, and that is what you get at Velvet Cottage. However, we remain easily contactable and should the need arise we can be on site within an hour.

The cottage is in a beautiful location surrounded by amazing views. The cottage is very well equipped and clean. Llangollen is charming and the canal trip across the aqueduct is well worth doing. Chester is not far away and we spent a great day there....More
