Cottage perched on hillside overlooking River Dee

Our home has one of the best views around – it perches on the hillside with a panoramic vista of the Dee Valley below. The garden opens out onto Llantysilio mountain, which is open access land so you`re free to roam. Our chickens live up on the mountain, and we also have a modest vegetable garden with lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, etc. that you`re welcome to enjoy. The Dee is fabulous for swimming in, and there are unforgettable walks in every direction. We have two small children so it`s set up for little ones with a cot and highchairs, but it`s also not overwhelmingly child-focused, so if you don`t have children it shouldn`t matter. We`ve renovated it throughout so it`s all new in terms of appliances, plumbing and electrics (but with original features and stonework preserved). Two bedrooms have double beds, and one is a single. More photos to come!

About the location

We`re a little east of Snowdonia National Park, in the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It`s very hilly (excellent for climbers), extremely picturesque, and the River Dee runs along in front of us, a clean and clear river that`s safe for swimming and paddling, good for water sports including white water stand up paddle boarding and kayaking, and excellent for fly fishing. Llangollen is a great hub with small independent shops and galleries as well as supermarkets, the Cornmill pub amongst others, Gales Wine Bar, and other restaurants and cafés.
