We loved our 3 night stay at Hillside. From the moment we arrived, we knew we had found a little gem! A warm welcome message in a postcard & some delicious shortbread awaited us, plus the chilled & bottled water provided was very thoughtful. The apartment was beautiful & tastefully styled. Spotlessly clean inside with a wonderful herb & wildflower garden outside to sit in and enjoy the sunshine and watch visiting bees & butterflies. All the little extra touches from Lora were greatly appreciated - cotton wool balls/buds, toothpaste & brushes, a range of toiletries, foil/clingfilm/food bags/ washing up liquid and condiments in the kitchen, plus a fab range of DVD's & games in the lounge. Lora also provides a great selection of information/books on things to do in the local area. Lora & Barry were also very accomodating in allowing us to store our mountain bikes securely in the garage when not being used. A highlight of our stay was seeing the tenant horse & Shetland ponies through the window everyday and the amazing rainbows we saw across the valley following a shower of rain. We were able to walk easily to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which you can see from your window at Hillside. We sat and had a drink at The Talbot Inn looking back at Llanerch Farm nestled in the hillside! We also rode (& pushed!) our bikes up the incredibly steep roads above the farm, but the effort was worth it for the views of the setting sun behind the hills/mountains and across the valley and River Dee - the freewheel back home was exhilarating... and much quicker than the journey up! We also spent an enjoyable day cycling 10 miles or so along the Shropshire Union Canal to the nearby town of Llangollen, which itself is interesting & pretty. We recommend the food at The Corn Mill located on the side of the River Dee in Llangollen, where we had a lovely evening meal whilst taking in the views across the river. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we hope to return again soon.
