Traditional Farmhouse Accommodation In An Idyllic Setting | Erw-Dinmael

Pet FriendlyReal FireFarm Stay

This traditional farmhouse accommodation in an idyllic setting comes with big views across green fields to hills and mountains beyond. Stylish, bright and smart, it sleeps up to six guests in three bedrooms – two doubles and one room with bunk beds.

If you’re hankering after a remote and totally private location, this beautiful holiday cottage could be the perfect match for you. Erw-Dinmael is a lovely Welsh farmhouse which occupies a central North Wales location and is perfectly placed for day trips to Llangollen, Bala, Betws y Coed, and Llandegla.

The cottage is nestled in the foothills of the Berwyn mountains, which run from Llangollen in the north, across to Bala in the west and Oswestry in the south. This is a quiet but beautiful corner of North Wales, ideal if you are looking for a relaxing holiday getaway that is slightly off the beaten track.

There are superb walking, cycling and wildlife watching opportunities straight from the front door. The surrounding landscapes are quite inspiring – if you are in anyway artistically inclined, pack your notebook, sketchbook, pencils and pens.

Open the front door into this traditional farmhouse accommodation in an idyllic setting and you’ll find a small hallway which is ideal for casting off boots, wellies and coats. From there, step left into the dining room with a handsome oak dining table and a cupboard nook with hatch pass into the kitchen. There is a stable style back door which opens into the garden.

The kitchen is bright and modern. Recently renovated, it comes with gas hob and electric oven, a dishwasher, large fridge freezer and microwave, plus plenty of pots, pans, utensils and storage space. The far-reaching views from the kitchen windows are superb.

The living room comes with original beamed ceiling, and a huge oak lintel over the fireplace. A large, inviting, and very comfortable ‘L’ shaped sofa is arranged around the toasty log fire. We love the winged leather armchair and deep recessed windows. The perfect spot to get cosy with a good book and a glass of something delicious.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, one double with en suite shower room, a second double which has a zip and link bed so it can be seperated into two single beds upon request, and a bunk bedroom, ideal if you are bringing children or grandchildren. The bedrooms are beautifully presented and very restful. There is a shared family bathroom with a bath and shower.

Outside of this traditional farmhouse accommodation in an idyllic setting is an enclosed garden, and a patio with dining table and chairs. A little piece of rural paradise, it is surrounded by rolling green fields dotted with grazing sheep. The Berwyn mountains lie beyond.

If you love big countryside views with a remote and totally private location, this traditional farmhouse accommodation in an idyllic setting could be the perfect match for you. Erw-Dinmael occupies a central North Wales location and is perfectly placed for day trips to Llangollen, Betws y Coed, Bala, and Llandegla.

The Berwyn mountains – which run from Llangollen in the north, down to Bala in the west and Oswestry in the south – stretch out before it. The views from the cottage are quite inspiring – if you are in any way artistically inclined, pack your notebook, sketchbook, pencils and pens.

The cottage is a 20-minute drive to Bala, or 40 minutes to Llangollen. The market town of Corwen, ancestral home of Owain Glyndwr, the last native-born prince of Wales, is just a 20-minute drive – check into Corwen’s small museum to find out more about Wales’s national hero. Just outside Corwen, you’ll find the Rhug Estate Organic Farm Shop and bistro – well worth a visit if you want to stock up with some of the region’s best local produce.

Bala is home to the largest natural lake in Wales, and a whole host of water sports including white water rafting, sailing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. There is a wonderful steam train which huffs and puffs passengers up and down the lakeside. And the town’s high street is well worth a visit too – if you like to sample local brews on your holidays, head to Stori Beers & Wines for an impressive selection of Welsh ales and gins.

Llangollen is a thriving town which is home to plenty of interesting shops, cafés and restaurants. One of our favourites haunts has to be the Corn Mill gastro pub in the centre of town – in suitable weather it’s well worth sitting out on the pub’s terrace which stands on stilts over the River Dee. The magnificent Pontcysyllte aqueduct is a short drive from Llangollen, as is the Valle Crucis Abbey. Or if you’re feeling energetic, walk up to the town’s atmospheric castle ruins, Dinas Brân.

The cottage is a half hour drive from Betws y Coed, also known as the gateway to the Snowdonia National Park. Again, Betws is a thriving town with plenty to do and see, from galleries and bistros to outdoor gear shops. Betws is surrounded by the Gwydir forest which is home to family-friendly cycle trails, as well as the big climbs and descents of the Gwydir Mawr a Bach / the Marin Trail – a must-do for any serious mountain bike fan. Slightly closer to the cottage, you’ll find superb trails to cycle at One Planet Adventure at Llandegla.

There are superb walking and wildlife watching opportunities straight from the front door. There’s a lovely short circular up the Pen y Pigyn hillside at Corwen, or try the North Berwyn Way, which climbs the wild mountains between Corwen and Llangollen, for a bit more of a challenge.

Nearby family-friendly attractions to this gorgeous stone cottage at the foot of the Berwyn mountains include Zip World Fforest with its forest zip safari and tree top nets (25 minutes), and Bounce Below, Llechwedd Slate Caverns, Adventure Parc Snowdonia and Zip World Titan (45 minutes).

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Erw-Dinmael. We loved how remote it was and it was a real treat having no neighbours other than the sheep and gorgeous little lambs! The house was beautiful and extremely well equipped, we made use of the log fire which was very cosy. We chose this area because we were already booked in at Zip World and the Forest Rollercoaster on the first day and then headed to the coast for a great day at Barmouth, fish and chips from Mermaids are the best! We would love to come back in the summer to enjoy more time out on the patio in the warm weather. My only comment would be to echo others regarding perhaps having a more secure area to let the dog out on the grass so as not to worry about upsetting the sheep but it certainly wouldn’t stop us returning at all. We hope to visit again and thank you to the hosts for their welcome gifts.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Erw Dinmael. The cottage had everything you needed for a peaceful retreat. Highly recommend.

Donna Roberts

We spent an amazing 2 weeks here and the cottage is gorgeous we had everything we needed. Watching the sun go down each day behind the hill was a treat. If like us you are looking for a cottage totally secluded surrounded be wildlife including the fox who visited the garden a few times this is for you x


Beautiful location with amazing views.
If you are looking for a very comfortable, secluded place to stay within a short drive of fabulous activities for the children we’d strongly recommend Erw-Dinmael. The cottage is furnished to a high standard and is very well equipped.


Lovely location and sheep and cows wondering which was lovely to see.
The cottage was very clean and comfortable and we had everything we needed there.
My only critical comment is i wish there had been a lawn as my dog has allergies and the garden area was wild.
I think the garden area is still in progress so i am sure this will be sorted eventually.
The sun in the afternoons on the patio was fabulous and we watched the sun go down behind the hill every evening
( a parasol would be good for the patio and some sun loungers)
Overall an amazing place highly recommended.

Absolutely stunning cottage itself, location and surroundings if you like remote, which we did without a doubt.
Garden isn’t enclosed so be prepared for a little training if your dog likes to explore like ours does. Even so the cottage and views countered it.
Amazing place.

Joanne Coupland

Beautiful cottage with the best views, very remote which is what we loved, spotlessly clean and lovely furnishings.
Only downside for us, was we booked it expecting that it would be an enclosed garden as we have 2 dogs, 1 small & 1 large, however there were numerous places the small one could get through to the sheep, luckily we got him back straight away with a tennis ball but had to have him tied on a long lead for the week which wasn’t ideal.
Would definitely recommend this accommodation though as it was stunning.

Margaret Hill

Absolutely stunning cottage in a beautiful location. Well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Very secluded and private with just sheep and cows for neighbours. The garden is advertised as being enclosed so it’s safe for most dogs but not small dogs eg a Bichon Frise who likes to explore and can get through small spaces. It wouldn’t put me off going again though as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Lovely welcome hamper from the owners too, who live nearby should you need them.
