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 past the cottage and we are within easy walking distance of some of the best remaining examples of the Dyke.
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 and 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 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.
