About Plas Newydd Cottage

Plas Newydd Cottage is located in an elevated position in the peaceful village of Derwen. Surrounded by beautiful views this characterful holiday cottage retains many of its original features such as a bread oven, inglenook, beams and slate floor, yet has all the modern conveniences needed for a comfortable and cosy self-catering holiday. Sleeping four people in two bedrooms, it is perfect for a relaxed romantic break, two couples holiday together or families with older children wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Derwen is a small village set on the hill with St Mary’s Church and its ornate Medieval preaching cross and loft dating back to the 15th Century. The village of Clawddnewydd, with its community shop and pub is one and a half miles away, or Llanelidan, which also has a village pub, is just three miles away. Both pubs serve food and are lovely to walk to from the cottage.

Whilst you will find fantastic walks and bike rides from your front door, for those who want to venture slightly further afield, Snowdonia National Park and the Vale of Clwyd are just a short drive away. Betws-y-Coed, which is often described as the ‘gateway to Snowdonia’, is just a thirty five minute drive. Not only are there plenty of walking opportunities from here but you can also enjoy flying through the forest on a toboggan at Zip World or simply browse the numerous outdoor shops, galleries and tea rooms.

Any keen mountain bikers will be spoilt for choice with the huge number of tracks and trails nearby. Coed-y-Brenin, the UK’s largest dedicated mountain biking centre, the network of trails at Llandegla and the scenic forest tracks at Penmachno and Gwydir Forest are all a short drive away. Alternatively, head to lake Bala where you can enjoy a variety of watersports such as sailing, canoeing, windsurfing or even whitewater rafting. For those who want to keep their feet firmly on dry land, there is a beautiful circular walk around the lake.

The medieval town of Ruthin, which has a castle and selection of cafes and bars, and the pretty town of Llangollen, where you can catch a steam train through the picturesque Dee Valley, are both a short drive away. If you are after some retail therapy head to the Roman city of Chester. You can also walk along the city walls, enjoy a picnic by the river, or spend a day at the races or Chester Zoo.

Whether you are looking for a different activity each day, or you simply want to relax and recharge in beautiful surroundings, you are guaranteed to receive a warm welcome in this peaceful corner of Wales.
