A short stroll from the River Dee and the Llangollen Steam Railway, these two lovely self-catering cottages, Swallows and Wagtails, nestle in the beautiful Dee Valley, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Wagtails - Sleeps 4
The old barn that became Wagtails cottage was built in the 17th century and retains many original features, including beautiful oak beams.
