Glencoed Bed and Breakfast


Glencoed is a stone built traditional Welsh Cottage dating from the early 18th century with alterations carried out in the early 1950’s and the late 1980’s.

The original building is still as it would have been when originally built with its inglenook fireplaces and exposed oak beamed ceilings.

The cottage is located in one acre of its own grounds adjacent to the Llangollen Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal, and approximately ten minutes walk from the world famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct built by Thomas Telford.

The Offas Dyke footpath also runs immediately passed the cottage and we are within easy walking distance of some of the best remaining examples of the Dyke.

We are situated on a small loop road some 200 yards from the A5 road outside the village of Froncysyllte, five miles from the town of Llangollen which is renowned for its International Musical Eisteddfod, and two miles from the town of Chirk with is famous castle. Chirk Castle has been continuously occupied to this day by the Myddelton family for some 800 years, and one of the most popular National Trust Sites providing an insight into life in this area for many hundreds of years.

The city of Chester accessible by car, train and bus, is also within easy reach – some twenty minutes by car with its fine examples of architecture and structures dating back to the Roman occupancy of Great Britain.

We take considerable pride in our garden which extends to the side of the Llangollen Canal giving visitors the opportunity to sit and enjoy the tranquillity of our Welsh Countryside.

The accommodation which we offer is as follows:-

“The Cottage Room”. This is a bedroom with double bed, wash hand basin, and tea and coffee making facilities. It has its own lounge equipped with colour T.V. There is also a private bathroom with bath, wash hand basin, toilet and bidet. These rooms occupy one of the original cottages dating back to the early 18th century.

Bedroom 2. This is a bedroom with double bed, wash hand basin, tea/coffee making facilities and colour TV, adjacent to a private bathroom equipped with shower, toilet, and wash hand basin.

Bedroom 3. This is a bedroom with twin beds, and wash hand basin. This room will only be let in conjunction with bedroom two as it shares the bathroom facilities.

Bedrooms two and three occupy an area of the cottage which is self contained and ideal for a family or friends travelling together.

Dining Room.

The dining room occupies one of the traditional oak beamed rooms within the original building where a hearty Welsh breakfast is served at times to suit your convenience.

We have ample car parking and are happy for our visitors to leave their cars while they explore the surrounding area by train, boat, or on foot.

Day tours of North & Mid Wales and the English counties of Cheshire and Shropshire can be arranged on an escorted basis for groups not exceeding four adults by ourselves in a 4 x 4, affording excellent visibility of the countryside and allowing the driver in your party to fully enjoy the scenery through which we pass. Routes and itineraries to be arranged in consultation with yourselves.

The cost of these tours, because of the flexibility of their nature would be quoted upon agreement of your specific requirements.

Glencoed is in the ownership of Derek and Rosemary Hughes. We have both taken early retirement having been involved in the security industry for over 20 years.

We have had the pleasure of meeting people from all parts of the world, i.e. Bulgaria, Poland, Belarus, Hawaii, Australia, America, South Africa to name but a few.

We enjoy meeting people and look forward to your visit.

If travelling from abroad arrangements can be make to meet our visitors at Manchester International Airport should this be required, or local train or bus stations.
