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. Set in a wonderful location, with Llangollen, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Chirk Castle and access to the Offa's Dyke Trail all close by, Tan Y Rhos Isa is a great base for a family holiday, or a getaway with friends.


Excellent Cottage for a comfortable stay
A well equipped comfortable cottage just inside Wales. The kitchen is well appointed with a new electric range cooker and all the other mod cons needed. Full instructions for use are also provided unlike some cottages. Main bedroom is large with a very comfortable bed, the galley nature of this was barely noticeable as there were just the two of us, although I can see that if you came with a family you would want to use the curtain provided to give some privacy. The bathroom is perfectly adequate if somewhat compact. The property was well cleaned and ready on our arrival. The sighting of the cottage was perfect for visiting Llangollen with it's steam railway and canal/aqueducts, both of which are recommended visits, Bala and its lake and railway, Chester with it's Roman history as well as Shrewsbury and Welshpool. The village stores locally and in Chirk are good as are the butchers in Llangollen and Chirk. Our only real criticism was the on road parking which although adequate in itself made it difficult to turn around without using nearby driveways which we were asked not to do. Other than that a good place to stay and one we could use again in the future.

Really comfy and cozy cottage
This cottage is the perfect location to explore North Wales from, it's easy reach (with a car) as far as Anglesey one way and to Chester the other way. The village has all you need, there is a shop which sells everything and it's in walking distance of the cottage. The walk is also all on a pathway, so it's also a safe walk. We stayed during February so were using the open fire, and you can get all you need for the fire at the local shop too. The cottage has two bedrooms with the main bedroom being separated with a curtain. So it's ideal for a couple and even a couple with kids, but it probably wouldn't suit two couples, but a girlie weekend would work. The cottage is deceptively roomy on the inside, with a good size kitchen with a cooker range, dining table and everything in the kitchen you could possible need. The master bedroom is very large with plenty of room for your clothes and bits. It's a comfy bed too. You know when you go away and you never sleep properly the first night, well that didn't happen, we slept through 11 hours, we were disgusted with ourselves, but proved the bed must have been comfortable. The bathroom has a shower over the bath and the towles are lovely and soft. We would certainly go again, ideal spot, lovely cottage and beautiful area.

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.

Nice and warm
Second time we have stayed here and it was good as last time. On arrival the cottage was very clean and tidy. It has everything you need and good wi-fi was helpful as there is little or no phone signal in the valley. Nice to have a log fire every night that keeps the cottage warm and cozy. Pub that has good food and a shop both in easy walking distance. There is also I good play area and large field near as well. Will go back

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
