Llan is a perfect retreat, set in a tranquil setting within a short drive of beautiful Lake Vyrnwy. A fabulous place to relax and unwind from the stresses and pressures of daily life. Lovingly and tastefully restored by its current owners, it has a wealth of traditional features including wooden beams, oak and slate floors, a large inglenook with wood burner, a well equipped kitchen, modern conveniences and oil fired central heating. There is Wi-Fi, TV and a DVD player but for those preferring to make their own entertainment, a wide selection of books and board games.
The property has a large enclosed garden at the rear with a wild life pond and views of the surrounding fields and hills. There are wonderful hillside walks directly from the cottage and plenty of places to visit in the local area including Lake Vyrnwy and the Vyrnwy Falls, the RSPB Bird Reserve, Snowdonia National Park, the renowned Llanrhaeadr Falls, Bala Lake and the Berwyn Mountains.
For the adventurous there are numerous outdoor pursuits available nearby and further afield, including mountain biking, cycling, sailing, kayaking, horse riding, quad biking and white water rafting. Not for the faint-hearted there is the Revolution Bike Park on the door step at Llangynog (10 minute drive ) and Zip World Velocity, Zip World Titan, Bounce Below and Zip World Caverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog and Zip World Fforest at Betws-y-Coed (all within an hour away).
For those in search of history, within an hour's drive there are four National Trust properties, Chirk Castle, Erddig, Powis Castle and Attingham Park, and the Roman City of Chester and medieval town of Shrewsbury. For those wanting to spend a day by the sea, the beaches and seaside town of Barmouth can be reached in just over an hour and beyond that you have the lovely seaside resorts of Aberdovey and the Lleyn Peninsula. Port Meirion, an Italianate village, is well worth a visit.
There is a well stocked village shop within 3 miles of the cottage and larger shops and butchers in Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochant (5 miles) and Llanfyllin (9 miles). Large mainstream supermarkets can be found in Oswestry and Welshpool (both approximately 20 miles).
The Lake Vyrnwy Hotel (a 10 minute drive) has a spa, restaurant, bistro and dog friendly pub, as well as spectacular views of the lake and the surrounding countryside. There are a number of pubs serving food within 5 miles of the cottage.

Superb Warm Cottage
By Paul John Robinshaw on 04-Nov-2019
This is our second visit to this cottage, which does everything that it says on the tin. Good accommodation c/w comfortable furniture, lovely log burning fire, great location, and very well equipped - lacked for nothing including a proper pantry ! I will be very surprised if we, all five of us, plus Alfie the well behaved cocker spaniel don`t return next year.

A perfect Welsh getaway
By Kunak on 27-Jul-2019
We really loved Llan farmhouse -
a beautiful old cottage with original wooden rafters, cosy living and the most idyllic back garden. So much to see within driving distance (and great views en route) - the lake, Attingham Park, Blue Planet aquarium, Zip World Caverns and Fforest, Chirk Castle. We were there a week but could easily have filled two weeks with fabulous days out. The kids can't wait to go back!

Just the most peaceful spot in Wales! The cottage is a true haven. The interior is perfection. Simple, calming, tasteful and of the period and place. How lovely to stay here, where the memories are etched into the walls and floors, and time stands still.
By Jenny Francis on 15-Oct-2018
A beautifully presented Welsh cottage, very well fitted out and in a stunning position.
We couldn't wish for more, conveniently located for walking and Lake Vryney.
We had a lovely time and will try and get back at some time.
Thanks Chhritine for making us welcome
Comfortable and welcoming farmhouse in peaceful location
By Jan East on 08-Sep-2018
Lovely farmhouse in the hamlet of Hirnant. The house had everything we needed and is tastefully furnished with country antique furniture. Plenty of books, games and DVDs for wet days (it is Wales!) and a big garden with fruit trees and a pond with wildilfe to watch on sunny ones.
The owner is very approachable, with communicatiion both before we visited and while there to make sure we were OK.
The local area is beautiful with good walking and waterfalls to visit. Llangollen, Welshpool and Oswestry within an hour's drive. Lake Vyrnwy with lake walks, waterfall, and hotel about 10 mins drive.
Would be delighted to return.

Beautiful and tranquil
By R Allen on 26-May-2018
The cottage was gorgeous and the area was idylllic, remote and peaceful.
Nearby Lake Vyrnwy is beautiful and we had a lovely day out there, finished by a delicious meal in the hotel.
There’s plenty of places to visit in the nearby area but hirnant itself is remote enough to be the most relaxing place I’ve ever been!
My 5 year old daughter wanted to stay forever!
By Chris Hardy on 12-Apr-2018
WE had to reschedule our stay twice due to snow and the owner couldn't have been more accommodating. Finally when we got to the cottage it was everything we hoped it would be. It's a lovely place to stay, very clean and comfortable with lots of nice welcoming touches by the owner.
If you want dark night skies, log burning stoves, old oak beams and countryside then this place is just the ticket. We'd go back without hesitation.
