Corwen Old Police Station is a lovingly restored Grade II listed building dating back to 1871. Explore the countryside and enjoy the local amenities on your doorstep in the attractive town of Corwen with pubs, eateries, and shops. Walk or cycle the trails from the town, including Pen Y Pigyn, and into the Berwyn Mountains. Travel on the scenic Heritage Railway to visit the vibrant town of Llangollen offering a wide range of shops, restaurants, and leisure activities, or hop off at one of the three stations in between. Explore the Dee Valley and visit Horseshoe Falls and Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (10 miles), both World Heritage sites.

It is a lovely space to rustle up a meal overlooking the private courtyard formerly used for the prisoners' daily exercise. Head through to the spacious lounge/diner with interesting features and plenty of space for everyone to gather around the dining table and enjoy your meal whilst planning your holiday activities. After dinner, relax on the comfortable sofas, watch the Smart TV or just catch up on each other’s news by the glow of the wood burner on cosy nights in. Maybe test your skill on the football table in the games room. When ready for bed there are four fabulous bedrooms to choose from – all super-king size beds (two of which can be made as twins on request).

The property is simply outstanding, the original features of the building itself are magnificent but the finish, dressing and presentation of this property are simply outstanding.
