This delightful, semi-detached cottage in Glyn Ceiriog in North Wales can sleep four people in two bedrooms.
Tan Y Rhos Isa is a fabulous, semi-detached cottage situated in the heart of Glyn Ceiriog, three miles from Llangollen in North Wales. This cosy cottage can sleep four people in two bedrooms accessed via mezzanine stairs, including a twin room and a king-size double room with a curtain doorway. There is also a kitchen with a dining area and an electric stove and a sitting room with a roaring open fire. Outside, there is a front garden and to the rear, an elevated decked area with furniture and a barbecue, and glorious views across roof tops to the valley beyond. Roadside parking is available opposite the property, on a country road, on a first come, first served basis.

A good base The blurb from Sykes is pretty much accurate so I do not need to elaborate on what the cottage offers. It really is well equipped. I don't think our wants were very demanding but it didn't seem to lack anything except perhaps storage for clothes and personal belongings in the bedroom with 2 beds. I would highlight positively the shower, the water colour paintings on the walls, the outside table (as long as it is sunny!) and the fact that it is close to the Spar supermarket as others have mentioned. There are also a selection of DVDs, puzzles and games which I always like to find at a holiday cottage. Roadside parking may sound something of a hazard but we had no problem at all. I rarely even had to practise my parallel parking!
The following comments are not intended to be negative, just to try to indicate whether this place is suitable for your family/group. It is not a big cottage but both the main rooms (sitting room and kitchen/dining) are absolutely fine. The kitchen particularly is bright and airy. We were joined for the day by another family of 5 and with some help from good weather, allowing us to eat one meal outside, coped without problem. The steps to the bedrooms are steep. My 90 year old father managed them but, as both bedrooms are upstairs, I don't think this would work for anyone severely disabled. I would also mention that there is no lawn or 'play area' in the garden.
Some of you may need to know that bookings for this cottage are usually done from a Friday to Friday.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my week in the cottage. I would certainly recommend it, both as a place to stay in itself and as a centre for visiting many interesting and beautiful places around. Richard H 2017-09-08
A gorgeous retreat !! My husband and myself was looking for a relaxing get away from the city and we definitely got it here. It is a lovely cottage with everything u need, the owners have thought of literally everything even the little touches to make it feel home from home. There's a open fire which is so lovely on those winters evenings although the cottage is lovely and warm without it but it's so cosy with it ! The views from the cottage are great and the surrounding area is lovely, there's so many walks and sights to see. And the people are so friendly we went to the oak pub just down from the cottage a few times during our stay and the food is lovely and the owners and staff are so welcoming and friendly we have had a lovely holiday and we can't wait to go back !! We would totally recommend this cottage Wendy H 2016-12-05
The cottage was very quaint, warm and cosy. It was extremely clean and a folder in the cottage explained how everything worked. I would definitely stay at this cottage again. Miss Griffith 2016-05-21
I Loved the log fire & location of the property. I have never stayed somewhere so well equipped. There are good pubs in the village, a well stocked post office & local shop. The front garden is lovely to sit out and drink tea/coffee from morning til mid afternoon.

Well equipped cottage in very relaxing surroundings Well what a lovely little cottage - far exceeded our expectations! So well equipped - the owners have thought of almost everything that you might need away from home (inc. sewing kit, first aid kit, kitchen foil, light bulbs & baking equipment etc) - things that you don't always think you will need whilst on holiday. The owners have catered for children too - there were safety devices available for children as well as children's plates, cups etc. They left us enough dishwasher, washing machine stuff to get us started too which was a help although there is a well stocked Spar shop within close walking distance.
The log fire is lovely too - again they left enough to get us started and more logs are available to buy close by.
We were able to park outside the cottage every day on the quiet road. I sat in the front garden each morning drinking coffee in the sun overlooking the valley (well not always in the sun but the weather was kind to us and it was dry at least). We could see the river Ceiriog from the bedroom windows.
A quaint little village, one shop, one post office, a caf? and two pubs and a fab play park for children. The Glyn Valley pub is a locals pub but they were very welcoming and the food was fab. We ate at the Oak to and it was a nice atmosphere there too.
We had a really relaxing break here and would definitely return for a bit of peace and quiet. Still lots to see in the area. emma p 2016-04-15
