About Glanderwen

Glanderwen is in a quiet rural location surrounded by fields and natural beauty in an elevated position on the outskirts of Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant, nestled in the picturesque Tanat Valley, perfect location for friends and family to relax and explore Mid Wales and the Shropshire borders. The country holiday cottage is next to the owner's farm and sleeps six people in three bedrooms with accommodation entirely on the ground floor. It's popular with families but also works well for friends who want to explore the magnificent footpaths of the Tanat Valley and the Welsh borders near Shropshire, the rolling hills you can see from the house and the garden. The owners have focused on making the property feel like a true home-away-from-home with excellent self-catering facilities and a neutral colour scheme which allows the views to take centre stage.

Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant is a short drive away for your convenience stores and the main attraction nearby has to be the stunning Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall with a spectacular 240 ft drop, recognised as Britain’s tallest single-drop waterfall. Walkers can climb to the top of the waterfall and if you feel energetic you can then hike up the Berwyn mountain range. A more gentle but no less scenic route is the path around Lake Vyrnwy to Rhiwargor Waterfall, eight miles from Glanderwen and suitable for walking or cycling. Offa's Dyke and the Montgomery Canal are also nearby.

Shops and other amenities are 14 miles away in the historic town of Oswestry in Shropshire. After grocery shopping, explore Whittington Castle, the Park Hall Countryside Experience, and the Oswestry Iron Age Hillfort. Other local attractions are Powis Castle, Chirk Castle, and the house and 1200-acre estate at Erdigg. Day trips can include sightseeing and shopping in the medieval market town of Shrewsbury, with a great choice of pubs and restaurants. Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury and christened in the unusual circular St Chad's Church. The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Ironbridge Gorge are protected as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You're only an hour from the Tudor and Roman sites at Chester, which also has an excellent zoo. Alternatively, go west to Snowdonia and attractions like Bounce Below and Zip World.

Accommodation Comprises:

Glanderwen is a detached bungalow and sits next to the owner’s farm and is the ideal rural retreat for a group of six. Please check with the owner if you use a wheelchair and want the specifications of its accessibility.

  • Soft shades of oatmeal and taupe make the living room as cosy and comfortable as any holiday cottage you could stay in. It has a gorgeous wood-burning stove to welcome you home after a chilly winter walk.
  • Most of your time will be spent in the lovely kitchen/diner. This is a great room with fantastic views and glass bi-fold doors that open onto the patio. The timber of the central kitchen island is echoed in the dining table. Appliances are high quality and include a fridge/freezer with a chilled water dispenser.
  • A handy utility room keeps laundry, and cleaning facilities conveniently tucked away. It's one way to enter the house and has space to leave walking boots and wet weather gear.
  • Reserve the main bedroom for yourself and enjoy a king-sized bed and an ensuite shower room.
  • A second bedroom is furnished with a double bed.
  • There is a third bedroom with two single beds and neutral decor to be appropriate for guests of all ages.
  • The family bathroom features a walk-in shower and a deep rolltop bath so you can refresh yourself or soak, depending on your preference.

Outside: Space is as plentiful outside the cottage as within. A patio has an outdoor dining table and chairs, a lawn, and off-street parking for multiple cars.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. A travel cot and a high chair are available. Glanderwen is situated next to the owner’s farm with its own separate entrance and privacy is assured. Smoking and pets are not allowed.
