The cottage was an ideal place to spend as a base for exploring North Wales. It was comfortable airy and spacious. It was also well furnished, fitted out and with a pleasant colour scheme. The owners who live next door, Anna And Mark, were friendly and welcoming and provided a more than generous welcome pack. Our 2 labradoodles soon settled in too.Read more From this base we visited Wrexham, Llandudno, Ruthin, Llangollen, the fabulous Pontcysllte Aqueduct, Shrewsbury, Fairbourne and stunning Chester.
