Hillside is a beautiful, 1-bed, self-contained apartment sleeping up to 3 people. Located on the lower ground floor of Llanerch Farm, an 18thC farmhouse nestled above the Dee Valley in 16 acres of private countryside; it has its own private garden, well-equipped kitchen and gorgeous views. Overlooking a World Heritage site and conservation areas of special historic interest, it's the perfect place for a tranquil getaway; or to explore the gorgeous landscape of the North Wales borders and beyond.
Hillside is a newly-decorated, peaceful, self-contained, one-bedroom apartment situated on the lower ground floor of Llanerch Farm, an 18th century farmhouse located between Froncysyllte and Llangollen on the North Wales borderlands.
Llanerch Farm is nestled in 16 acres of private land, with beautiful views of the stunning Dee Valley. We're lucky enough to be able to not only enjoy the UNESCO World Heritage site of Pontcysyllte Aqueduct from our windows, but also the 13th century Castell Dinas Bran (or "Crow Castle"), as well as a host of amazing wildlife.
Hillside is a peaceful apartment which has been thoughtfully decorated and furnished to provide a flavour of contemporary Welsh farmhouse style and surroundings. It is well-equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable home-from-home, including free WiFi, kitted-out kitchen, dishwasher, Freeview TV/DVD player/HDMI cable, board games, USB sockets and printed information on places to visit, local eateries and lots of other useful stuff.
Hillside's private rear garden with patio set and parasol is the perfect spot to watch the sun set behind the romantic ruins of Dinas Bran castle, whilst our peaceful resident ponies quietly graze in the surrounding fields.
The bedroom has a super-comfy king-size bed, plus a full single-sized daybed - perfect for a child, or a great spot to curl up with a good book. The pretty, bijou ensuite bathroom has a walk-in shower, toilet, hand basin and heated towel rail, plus fluffy towels and complimentary accessories - we've tried to think of everything you might have forgotten!
Our area also has a great 4G phone signal.
Hillside is a self-contained, one bedroom apartment on the lower-ground floor of our family home, Llanerch Farm. Use of it is exclusively yours during your stay, including Hillside's own private rear garden, private entrance and parking area.
Guests are welcome to take a walk from out the private rear garden into the field to enjoy the wildlife or picnic overlooking a different view of the river and valley from the bottom of our meadow.
Other things to note
Hillside is a self-contained, one-bedroom apartment on the lower-ground floor of our family home. However, it is very private and its own entrance, parking and garden to the rear.
Hillside sleeps up to 3, but if you want to borrow a spare blow-up mattress to accommodate an additional child, we have one available at no extra charge.
We provide tea and coffee (plus a few hand-chosen treats) on arrival, but not breakfast.
We have lockable outbuildings for muddy boots or bikes, should you need them.
Regrettably, Hillside is not suitable for wheelchair users. Inside the apartment there is a single shallow step between the passageway and living area, one step up into the kitchen through the front door and one step down from the doors into the garden. Otherwise, the space is all on one level and could be used by people with limited mobility.
We are located in a peaceful spot up the hill from the A5 into Llangollen from the A483. Whilst we are handily located for access to main road routes, no traffic noise can be heard from the A5 below.
Please ensure you park outside the door of the apartment itself (there is ample space here for up to 3 cars), and not in the area by the telegraph pole that is just off the hill, as we require this space to be kept free for ourselves and visitors to the main house at all times.
Please note that the latest check-out time is 11am.
We live on site at Llanerch Farm, so one of us is usually always around and happy to help if you were to need anything. Having said that, we totally appreciate the fact that guests come to us for a quiet getaway, and have the utmost respect for their peaceful privacy. We make sure everything's in place ready for guests to check themselves in, hassle-free, but always love to meet new people and chat if you wanted advice about the local area or need help with anything.
Hello! I'm Lora. In late 2016, after 12 years of living and working in London, my husband Barry and I decided it was time to take the plunge and move back to my native North Wales. Soon after we stumbled upon Llanerch Farm, an 18th century Welsh farmhouse set in 16 acres of beautiful countryside with outstanding views of the beautiful Dee Valley, and made it our home in early May, 2017. We opened Hillside, our holiday apartment, in June 2017, so we might share this gorgeous patch of rural Wales with visitors from all over the world. We're super fortunate that we both now work from home - it sounds like a cliché, but not a day goes by when we don't appreciate how incredibly lucky we are to be here. We look forward to meeting you should you choose to stay with us at Llanerch Farm!
