Things to do nearby

Berwyn Barns is a great place to base yourself to see the beautiful countryside and attractions of North and Mid Wales – or just relax in the tranquillity of the Ceiriog Valley.

Right outside the door there are some great walking and mountain biking routes to explore, and the wildlife is everywhere, making it an ideal bird watching location

Fishing is available by prior arrangement.

Of course you can always relax inside!


Things to see nearby

Llangollen, with its historic buildings, quirky shops and steam trains is just 20 miles away, along with the World Heritage Site of the Llangollen Canal, with its aqueducts at Froncysyllte and Chirk.

If you’re feeling energetic you’ll find canoeing and white water rafting there, too, as well as plenty of places to go walking, road cycling or mountain biking.

In fact, if you’re into mountain biking, don’t forget to try out the trails at Coed Llandegla, just over the spectacular Horseshoe Pass from Llangollen.

Chirk Castle is worth a visit, as is the spectacular Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall just outside the village of Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant.

Further afield

Shrewsbury and Wrexham offer plenty to see and do (as well as shopping) and Chester is within easy reach for a day trip, as is most of North Wales.

But most of all we hope you’ll love coming back to your cosy cottage at Berwyn Barns!
