A truly wonderful holiday was had by us all. The situation of the cottage was excellent, overlooking the beautiful gardens being restored by the owner. The owners could not have been more helpful and friendly. The Potting Shed is so central to so many visitor attractions that it makes it ideal for anyone wanting to explore the area around Llangollen.

I would not hesitate in recommending this property; it was spotlessly clean and had everything you need for your stay. The gardens were immaculate. The owner and his friend who lives in the next cottage were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage is in an ideal location to visit all the sights in the area.

We had a lovely stay at The Potting Shed and feel that the cottage should be rated 4* as the owner has gone to so much trouble to anticipate every need.

We found The Potting Shed completely relaxing !! The cottage was unique, cosy and warm. It was well equipped and full of character with panoramic views of the Old Worlde garden from EVERY WINDOW which was really lovely. The owner was an extremely nice gentleman and all in all we certainly want to return again next year.

It far exceeded our expectations in terms of setting, comfort, amenities, helpfulness and location. We were so impressed with the owner's provisions and attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble for him. The area for our dog to exercise in was a bonus. We are definitely planning to return in the near future.

The cottage was just as we hoped. Quirky, comfortable and in a lovely setting overlooking the historic garden being sympathetically restored by the owner who is charming and friendly. It was ideally situated for visiting many places of interest nearby, and quiet and private enough to just sit and relax in the garden.

Stayed here for a week with our dog and some friends. The house is great, really quirky design, very well equipped and extremely cosy with super efficient central heating and a small log burner. There is a good garden for the dog to have a run around in, and the owner and next door neighbour were both very friendly. The location is great for dog walking and visiting the many local tourist visitor attractions. There are also many good places to eat in the local area. We definitely intend to stay here again!

Very homely cottage, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, with everything (and more) that you could possibly want. The owner has thought of everything and everything is of really good quality. The gardens are stunning.
