About Frank & Lynn Hill
We have lived in Llanarmon Yn Ial for nearly 26 years now. We have two young children Nia 11 and Oliver 8. They both go to the local school. We are adrenaline junkies and are quite often out kite surfing, kayaking, paragliding or climbing. Any advice wanted just ask.
Frank & Lynn Hill purchased this Cottage in 1980
Why Frank & Lynn Hill chose Mold
Ty Gylfinir (Curlew Cottage), the cottage you will be staying in, used to be an old joiners shop making wheels and wooden gears for the surrounding mills and lead mines that proliferated the area. We have travelled extensively and stayed in various degrees of accommodation so when we converted the building we put into it all the things that we thought a client may like and used our own experience to get it 'just right'. Our own cottage is just over the road from Ty Gylfinir so if there are any problems we are on hand to help. We moved to the area as it is very central to all amenities but still with a very rural environment.
What makes this Cottage unique
Whilst staying at Ty Gylfinir you can enjoy the rural area and still be less that 20 minutes from the cultural and bustling cities of Chester and Wrexham. Llangollen with its annual International Eisteddfordd is but a 15 minute drive away. 10 minutes walk takes you to our local pub The Raven which serves excellent real ales along with the best fish and chips anywhere, (they also serve a full menu) There is ample parking for two cars at Ty Gylfinir The garden is fully enclosed so you can allow your children to play, however there is also a larger area for the older ones with ample room to kick a football around or just wander and chill out.

As it says....Beautiful cottage in a stunning area
An excellent place to stay for a few days for our walking holiday. Nearby pub THe Raven excellent beer and food.
Unfortunately we forgot our maps but Frank came to the rescue!
Our fabulous stay at Ty Gylfinir
Just home from a fabulous stay in this lovely cottage. The cottage is everything you hope for and more, it is so comfortable & cosy and the surrounding area is simply stunning, the views are beautiful. We felt very welcome & comfortable as soon as we arrived and really didn’t want to leave !
PERFECT, PERFECT, PERFECT.
We came to the area not knowing what to expect. Its fantastic. The Raven pub was most welcoming.
Frank & Lynn where the perfect hosts giving us lots of advice on the local walks. The cottage suited our needs well. Cosy and warm and even the weather played its part and allowing us to sit in the garden.
Beautiful cottage in a stunning area
A great little find. Excellent set up for us with our dog who could roam freely in the garden. The owner Frank (who lives just across the road) was most helpful with information for walks and places to visit.
Definitely be back
A couple of issues
The cottage was lovely and in a lovely place but there were a couple of problems. There was insufficient cutlery and crockery and the twin beds were not very usable, very rickety and a screw sticking out caused a big gash on a leg
I'm sorry that everything wasn't up to your expectations.
However, I must admit we're a little surprised by this review. Having consistently attained 5 stars this was a bit of a shock.
If there where issues the client should have contacted us to resolve them as we only live across the road.
Finally may I note that upon inspection we found no evidence of the issues!
What more can I say?

Cozy Countryside Cottage
We enjoyed staying in this cottage in the beautiful Welsh Countryside. We were four adults and there was plenty of room. The living room and bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. We would advise using Franks’s directions to get to the cottage, and to be sure it is daylight unless you are used to driving in Wales!
I'm glad you had a great time staying with us.
I hope you have a safe journey onward.
