Scotch Hall Cottage description

Holiday home
Scotch Hall Cottage is a Grade II listed, 200 year old, detached cottage on a canalside, next to the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct, four miles from Llangollen in North Wales. This cottage sleeps up to six people and has three bedrooms, consisting of two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom (the twin bedroom gives access to the 2nd double and has no natural light) as well as a family bathroom. The cottage also has a fitted kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with coal effect gas fire and views of the canal. Outside, this cottage has off road parking for two cars in the pub car park next door and a gravelled area with seating. Scotch Hall Cottage is a fabulous family holiday home, close to many places of interest.

With its impressive mountain backdrop and boulder-strewn River Dee, the Vale of Llangollen is home to a number of pretty towns, internationally famous for their Musical Eisteddfod. Visitors can explore the surrounding valley by steam train or canal boat, or can try one of the many walking and cycling routes up to Castell Dinas Bran to enjoy the breathtaking view. The town of Llangollen offers a wide selection of pubs and restaurants in addition to many interesting shops. The National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erddig are close by, whilst a day-long car trail can take you to visit six of the 'Seven Wonders of Wales'. Offa's Dyke Path runs close to the town, offering a wonderful opportunity for walkers to see the Clwyd hills, whilst Snowdonia is less than an hour's drive away.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Scoth Hall Cottage was everything we could have wished for, it was so lovely. The location was excellent and the people at the Telford Inn next door serving meals was amazing. We would certainly love to go back and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Great location, quiet even though its on the canal basin and next to the pub. The cottage does not get any noise from either although sitting in the garden you will speak to nearly every customer walking from the tow path to the pub. The location is excellent if you want to walk along the canals as both Llangollen and Chirk are only a few miles away along a totally flat tow-path.

We have stayed here 4 times and the standard has always been excellent. The owners have completely redecorated and refurnished and it is very luxurious. The surrounding area is so pretty and the views from the cottage of the hills and the canal are spectacular. Good food in the pub next door and very friendly local people. Looking forward to returning soon.

The cottage, location and everything was just amazing, loved everything about it, the Telford Inn next door was so nice and the people could not have been more helpful, Food also fabulous. Quiet at nights and the Owners made the collection of keys so easy and was on hand if needed and so helpful.
June 2015
Lovely location and you can take dogs, Owners lovely and just next door to lovely pub, been a couple of times and would love to go back soon.

September 2015
The owners were very patient as we got seriously lost and mobile batteries on low. And very late as the Pub had shut. We were made very welcome by the owner and we had a very warm time in November. We hope to go there again very soon. Nothing to do with the Telford Inn literally next door where the Hosts were very friendly. Very relaxing place. And everything you need. The only traffic is the barges. Don't go sleepwalking as the canal is a few yards away from the front door.
July 2013
lovely cottage, well equipped and well situated, excellent service from owners, very interesting area, weather was cold but pleasantly sunny, a highly recommended accommodation, would stay again.

Phoned to arrange collection of keys and was told we could get in early and pick up the keys in the pub next door so we were able to drop off the luggage and get a nice cold cider to sit in the sun with as soon as we arrived. The owners popped in later with a bottle of wine which was a nice touch and checked that everything was ok. The cottage itself was lovely and cool even though the weather was the hottest few days of the year so made a nice place to retreat to when sitting watching the canal boats and walkers in this beautiful setting. The rooms in the cottage are all well equipped and comfortable, the shower is excellent with loads of power and kitchen contains everything you could imagine should you want to get cooking (but if you try the steak pie in the pub next door you wont want to bother cooking again). There are plenty of places to walk around the area direct from the front door although if you don't like heights the walk in the Chirk direction will get an extra mile or so added as you avoid the aqueduct which is the main feature of the area although its well worth walking over it for the view alone. Although the cottage is next to a pub (well its virtually in the beer garden) there is no noise at all that can be heard inside the cottage which makes the pub a bonus as you can have food or drink whenever you want to relax, and if the beer gardens full its quite nice to step into your own garden and sit at your own table and chairs as the world passes by. Would I go back here.......I'm thinking of booking it next year as well.
June 2013
A hop step and a jump onto the canal path which ever way we went we had good flat walking ,not many people just the birds and the wild fowl.the cottage was warm and well equipped, beds comfy ---peaceful yet with a pub next door excellent!!
January 2013
Loved every thing about it the cottage the location and the pub every 1 was friendly the cottage was clean and nicely decorate and the keys were easy to pick up.
December 2011
Fantastic cottage, with absolutely everything you could possibly need. The cottage was spotless and perfectly placed for the wonderful aquaduct, and pub next door.
April 2012
The pub in question is almost attached to the cottage, so not far to walk for excellent pub food and welcoming staff. On the other side is the canal, a busy stretch with lots going on including boat hire if you are so inclined. Not for the faint hearted if you steer towards the aquaduct mind, you need a head for heights. (An unfenced sheer drop to the river over a hundred feet below). With all of these hazards this isn't the place for young children, but couldn't be better for adults - walks along 2 branches of the canal from the door, as well as that pub.. The house itself is very well presented with everything you could possibly need. Snug and comfortable. There are steps/stairs and funny little low doorways on the upper floor but our 6'4" family member didn't have any problems even though his bed was under the beams!
November 2010
Outstanding position with all amentities to hand; superb local butcher only 5mins drive away. Property wonderful and quiet although next to pub. Owners very prompt in delivering key on arrival and helpful if needed. We will definitely visit again.
