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.

Velvet Cottage has a large enclosed garden which is perfect for dogs to explore freely! 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

Thanks for the review, we're really pleased you enjoyed your visit! We installed a handrail in Spring 2020 so the front steps should no longer be an issue. All the best, hope to host you again in the future, Ian & Yvonne.

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
