Beautiful holiday cottage sleeping four people in a pretty village in North Wales - cyclist owned!
Glan y Wern is a spacious self catering holiday cottage in North Wales and is an ideal destination for a cycling or mountain biking holiday. We are avid cyclists and mountain bikers so can help with any questions you may have about the area. In fact we bought the cottage based on the excellent cycling and riding close by!
We have two bedrooms (one en suite), a comfortable lounge with log burner, well equipped kitchen diner, an enclosed garden and a sunny patio with barbecue which overlooks fields.
Within a two minute walk are two historic pubs both serving fantastic food. One of which was recently voted one of the 30 cosiest pubs in the UK by the Daily Telegraph.
We have secure bike storage, off road parking, bike washing facilities and plenty of room to dry wet cycling gear.
The nearest train station is an easy 11 mile ride away in Chirk.
If you want a break from cycling, then within a short drive you can reach the popular tourist destinations of Llangollen, Bala and Betws-y-Coed. There is also lots to do in the area for families with children (we have two ourselves so can recommend places to visit).
Accommodation in brief: - 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4 people - Great for couples, families and kids - Wi Fi - BBQ - Short walk to two pubs - Garden - Bike storage and washing facilities - Well equipped kitchen diner - Bathroom and en suite

Llanarmon is in the Ceiriog valley just over the hill from Llangollen. Rough Guides listed it recently as one of the "six must visit places in Wales you have probably never heard of".
For such a small village it really punches above its weight. We have two fantastic pubs, lots of activities, walks and places to visit all within a short ride or drive. There are great on-road routes from the door of the cottage through the Ceiriog Valley, or head north towards Llangollen, south towards mid-wales or west to Snowdonia. Lake Vyrnwy is also close by and makes for a pleasant ride.
If mountain biking and off road riding is your thing we are within a short drive from Coed Llandegla, Coed y Brenin, Penmachno trails, Revolution Bike Park, One Giant Leap and Gwydir Mawr. There are also some great off road trails in the valley including the Beast of Llangollen and the famous Wayfarers Path to Llandrillo.
To ensure our guests get the most from their stay, there are lots of maps, guides and trail suggestions available at the cottage.
The nearest bike shop doing repairs and spares is in Llangollen. It is possible to reach the village by public transport.
From £115 per night for the whole cottage (sleeping 4). Short breaks available. Please check our website for prices, availability and last minute offers (www.thecottageinwales.com).
