Rose Cottage.*an 18th Century cosy retreat*

Overview

Our "cosy retreat" offers warm and comfortable accommodation throughout the year.

The beautiful hand-crafted kitchen/diner really is the focal point of the cottage. Fully equipped with oven, hob, refridgerator, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, table and chairs you'll find yourselves spending a lot of time here!

The lounge with its wood burner and a supply of logs, television and stereo system is the place to wind down after the day's activities.

The fully appointed bathroom has a brand new Victorian style suite comprising a full sized bath with shower over and glass splash panel, Wash-hand basin, WC, and radiator with heated towel rail.



Upstairs and outside the cottage.
The two bedrooms (one Double and one Twin) have stunning views of Llanymynech Rock. The twin bedroom has a further mattress under one of the beds in case you have a fifth guest.(when the mattress is used It makes the bedroom a bit of a squeeze but we do not charge extra for the use of this facility)

Outside there is a well-stocked Cottage garden to the front of the cottage. You can relax on the bench and enjoy the garden, or pass the time of day with the friendly locals. To the rear of the cottage is an off-road parking space and a raised terrace with a table and chairs and a Barbeque for those summer nights!

Note: We wish to advise customers that the height of some doorways means that people over six foot three inches tall may bang their heads in places. Please contact us for further information.


The Surroundings and THINGS TO DO:
Llanymynech is an attractive village half in England and half in Wales, with beautiful views over Llanymynech Rock. The village boasts three great pubs, two in England and one in Wales. In addition there are Indian and Chinese takeaways within walking distance. Golfers will be amazed at the views from the Llanymynech golf course where a young Ian Woosnam learnt his game.

Things to do:
Llangollen is only 25 minutes by car and has an adventure centre with White Water Rafting,Canoeing and Rock Climbing and many other outdoor activities.

Or, a real family favourite- an amazing trip on 'The Thomas Telford' canal boat culminating in a trip over the Pontycyslatt Aquaduct 130 feet above the River Dee.

The Historic town of Chester is also only 35 minutes by car with its Roman Battlements and ramparts which encircle the town and make for a wonderful walk, or Shop in the medievel shops set on two levels,a shopping experience like no other.
Also within driving distance: Portmerion, Llandudno, Conwy (which has the smallest house in Britain) and much much more.
Ramblers will find this an ideal centre with Offa's Dyke running close by.

Summary:

Located between the town of Shrewsbury and historic Chester. Located on the England/Wales Border. A perfect place in a forgotten part of Old England. A real home from home.

This cottage really is as good as it looks on the web site ,full of cosy old world charm but with all the modern conveniences you could want,the patio and barbeque area at the rear is a real sun trap and there is ample parking for two or three cars Just a short walk takes you to the shop,three pubs and a couple of take aways. A canal and heritage trail with woodland walks is just a couple of minutes from your door .This is a cottage you will want to take home with you and would without any hesitation recommend it to my friends. A LITTLE GEM

We have just arrived back today from a five day break at this wonderful cottage. All four of us loved our stay here, the locals were all so friendly and the rep, Bev was very helpful with local info and was always available when needed. The next door neighbours, Brian and Joan were also a fantastic help, lending us local walking trail maps and even showing us around there lovely gardens! The patio area at the rear at the property is a lovely little sun trap with a barbecue which was a real bonus as we got lucky with the weather being scorching every day! The cottage itself is soooo cosy we only went out on the last night because we loved it there so much! Out and about there is three pubs in the village, we tried two of them with our favourite being The Dolphin Inn. We would also recommend The Rhaeaedr Waterfall for a day out, only half an hour drive into Wales from the cottage. There are walking trails all around the village, along the canal and up Lllanymynech Rock with panoramic views if you feel energetic enough to climb up there!! The only bad thing about this cottage was leaving!! We miss it already.

I really enjoyed our stay here. This really is a lovely, well equipped cottage with a beautiful front garden. Its a great base from which to explore the surrounding countryside in Wales and Shropshire. Theres a good pub (The Bradford Arms), and Indian restaurant and a handy shop for the basics. Also - everyone in the village was very friendly. My only criticism is that you do hear quite a bit of road noise from the house, but this is not a problem at night. Thank you!

This is a fantastic holiday cottage, furnished to the highest standards. The local Post Office-cum-newsagent had unfortunately closed a couple of weeks before we got there, but it really didnt pose a problem. The housekeeper is absolutely first-class, and nothing proved too much trouble ~ thank you, Bev! Sincerely hope we are able to stay here again, as theres lots still to see in the area.

This beautiful cottage, nestled in a village filled with friendly but unobtrusive locals, was happily situated on the border of England and Wales, making itself an excellent base for our exploration of the best that each had to offer. The cottage itself was decorated and furnished to a very high standard, in sympathy with the age of the property and a comfortable but contemporary country style. We were most pleasantly surprised by how well-equipped the kitchen was, and made the most of it, preparing dishes using the very best local fayre. There is so much to see and do, just a short drive away in any direction.. The castle and Food Festival at Ludlow were wonderful, and Shrewsbury, Oswestry and Chester all deserve a days visit. Simply heading out in the car into the Welsh countryside affords a multitude of beautiful sights and experiences. An excellent place to stay.

Property was very clean and comfortable. Village amenities are poor, shop and pubs not at all of a high standard. The cottage is fine if you do not want to spend any time at all in the village.

We stayed in the property for four nights and were very satisfied with the cottage. We had a little trouble o n arrival as we didnt have a tel no. or an address for the agent, just that she lived two doors down from the cottage, but once that was sorted out everything went well. Unfortunately I was ill for the whole time we were in the property, but take it on good authority that the beds were very comfy as I spent an awful lot of time in one of them. The cottage is very compact, but was comfortable for the four of us that were staying (two couples) and was well equipted. A very cosy and comfortable cottage with a stunning little kitchen and very nicely decorated. I would definately recommend a stay in Rose Cottage (I dont know why it is advedrtised as Apple Tree Cottage!!).
Verified
Very nice property, good location. Nicely decorated and well equiped. Caretaker Bev was very helpful Plenty of local attractions and close to some NT Castles. Is advertised as Apple Tree Cottage but named Rose Cottage so slightly confusing on arrival.Plenty of eating places or takeaways in walking distance

Arrived back today (22/07/11) after a few days. What a lovely cottage! Exactly as it looks on the images. Beautiful, peaceful & lots to see and do. Bev who looks after the cottage was lovely and very friendly, Brian and Joan next door are a lovely couple, full of lots of local history. Also we received a very warm welcome from everyone in the village. Places to visit in the village the 3 village pubs, the Indian Restaurant and the Cross Guns pub/restaurant in Pant. Places to visit outside of the village Oswestry, Welshpool, Conwy, Llandudno, Llangollen and Borders Activity Centre for Quad Biking and many more activities. Also, there are some lovely walks in and around the area. Thanks for a lovely stay! =) Would definitely stay again and would recommend Apple Tree Cottage to anyone!

Beautiful, well maintained cottage with every amenity you would find in your own home and the added bonus of genuine country character! Very comfortable beds and fantastic central heating - the cottage certainly was cosy! :D Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to others - fantastic location too, nice views and lots of good days out locally. We will be returning

Comfortable cottage with good cooking facilities as well as pubs and reataurant close by. Excellent location for walking and cultural visits in Shropshire and Wales and locally. Helpful neighbours next door

we have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at apple tree cottage. The cottage is compact and bijou just enough room for two adults with two small children. we had one nine year old with us. there is so much to do in and around the area. A places of intrest folder would be very helpfull or even a comment book so guests could make there sugestions . things to concider do not take any elderly as stairs very steep, do not use stairs in stocking feet as you will slip and fall. there needs to be a grab rail when you come out of the bedroom. 6/10

A beautiful-true-gingerbread-house cottage, the onces that you think of when thinking about rural England. Lovely!

My wife and our two children [12 & 10] enjoyed our stay immensely. The accommodation is wonderful and Llanymynech is a good base for exploring North Wales and some of the most beautifull scenery we have ever seen. If there was one thing that, in our opinion, could be added to the package to complete a memorable holiday it would be more local information, best local restaurants, best local towns for produce and local amenities ie: swimming pool etc. Best local beaches and key places to visit. A welcome pack with this info would be great. The leaflets, and there are plenty, are fine but do not have actual experiences and all sound great but when you are on holiday you do not want to waste a minute on just another day trip. It would be nice to have personal recommendations. In our opinion Llangollen, Aberdovey, Portmeirion, Chester zoo and the local Bradford Arms are all worth a mention. This in no way spoilt our stay which truly was unforgettable. Thank you.

We had an excellent time at the cottage. The area is beautiful and relaxing. The cottage itself is extremely cute--every detail is 'just so.' We look forward to coming back in the future.

Lovely cottage, was the perfect getaway. Bradford Arms very good for food and about 10 seconds walk away! Will definitely stay again.

Loathed to give this property a good rating , as we would like to keep it as our family secret, and now others will find out what a wonderful place you have. I especially appreciated the proximity to the fine food and drink at the Bradford Arms.

We have - literally - just returned from a 5 night break at the cottage and wanted to let you have our review straight away. We often stay in rented cottages for our half-term family get-aways and have on occasion been disappointed with the standard of accommodation provided. Not so with Apple Tree Cottage! It is as lovely as it looks! Two points of interest to any would-be renters which aren't mentioned in the owner's particulars are (a) there is a great little shop/post office within two hundred yards of the property, which provides all the basics and (b) the beds are really comfortable! There are great walks literally from the door and we highly recommend Lake Vrynwy for beautiful scenery and beautiful trails.

Our whole family (2 adults and 3 kids ages 11, 9, and 7) definitely felt that the cottage was one of the highlights of our trip to the UK. We were totally in love with it--so cozy and warm. We felt snug and at home. Another highlight was the Indian restaurant down the street--it truly adds to the whole atmosphere that you have a wonderful restaurant and a store as well, within walking distance.... Truly an experience we will remember fondly. The owners have outdone themselves in the renovation, decorating, and furnishings as well. Thanks for a great stay.

The cottage is located in a lovely unspoilt village the people were very friendly and helpful and we were surprised how much there is to do in this area. A holiday to remember.
