Penlan Cottage is just perfect, everything you could possibly need and more. Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday. We'll go again!

“Absolutely superb!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed at the cottage at the end of march, 6 adults, 1 toddler & 1 dog! We arrived during some of the worst snow I have ever seen but we managed to reach the cottage safely. There was also a power cut but the property "helpers" who live just up the road were soon with us offering blankets and hot water bottles to keep us warm. Fortunately the power came back on and the heating soon had the cottage nice and cosy!


After all the excitement of the first day we took it easy on the following day but we did venture out to the pub just across the road to sample their recommended food. It was excellent and between us we tested the roast dinner and the lamb stew amongst other things.

The snow provided some stunning backdrops to the surrounding scenery and as the week progressed we were able to go further afield. There is plenty to see in the local area with something for everyone and you can travel that little bit further to reach places like Chester which is a lovely place and of course snowdonia is well worth a visit.

So in summary if you are looking for somewhere that feels like home this is the place. We are planning another visit where we will hopefully have some sunshine so we can sit out on the patio and fire up the bbq!

“Beautiful, well appointed cottage. Perfect location.”
Reviewed 24 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We went on a girly long weekend in feb to Penlan cottage and had a great time. The cottage is beautiful, perched on the river Dee with stunning views. Everything you could need is supplied at the cottage and the cottage itself is spotless and really lovely and homely. The owner was really accommodating and allowed us to leave a little bit later on in the day as no new arrivals coming in. Would highly recommend Penlan and we can't wait to go back.

“Perfect choice for our family...”
Reviewed 6 December 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Our stay at Penlan Cottage was short but truly outstanding. Morning coffee on the terrace by the river Dee, watching the mist burn off the rolling hills, was in itself one of the highlights of our trip. The home was completely equipped and suited our family of 5 perfectly. The location was a convenient launch point for the several tours we took through the hills and castle ruins of Northern Wales. A comfortable perch to come home to with the benefit of a local pub just a few steps down the road. There, at the Grouse Inn, we had 2 excellent meals shared with the buzz of the local town folk. If you are looking to vacation in Northern Wales, a stay at the Penlan cottage should be on your short list for accommodations.
