Llangollen is a beautiful town located in the Dee Valley in North Wales, and there are plenty of things to do during a cottage holiday in the area. Here are some ideas:

1. Visit the medieval Castell Dians Bran

Learn more about the area’s history, fascinatingly built upon much more ancient Iron Age grounds. These sights are gorgeous during the summertime, which also happens to be festival season.

2. Enjoy some real Welsh Culture

Get ticket for the International Eisteddfod Parade, in the second week of July, an authentic Welsh treat with plenty of music, dancing and singing. The Fringe Festival is also held in July, as is Dee Rocks, held in the town hall, perfect for reaching from your holiday cottage. Llangollen is great for cultural appreciation of all kinds, with live music often playing in local pubs – best enjoyed, of course, with an excellent pint.

2. Take a ride on the Llangollen Railway

This heritage railway runs for 10 miles along the picturesque Dee Valley, and offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside. You can board the train at Llangollen station and travel to Carrog and back.

3. Visit the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site

This impressive aqueduct, which spans the River Dee, was built in the 18th century to transport goods on the Llangollen Canal. You can take a boat trip over the aqueduct or walk across it for amazing views.

4. Explore the Horseshoe Pass

This winding mountain road offers breathtaking views of the Dee Valley and the surrounding hills. You can drive or cycle up to the top, or take a guided tour.

5. Go hiking or cycling

There are many scenic trails in the Llangollen area, including the Offa's Dyke Path, which runs along the Welsh-English border. The Dee Valley Way, which follows the River Dee, is another popular trail.

6. Visit Plas Newydd

This historic house, located in the town centre, was once the home of the Ladies of Llangollen, two 18th-century women who lived together in a romantic partnership. You can take a tour of the house and gardens.

Llangollen is a splendid holiday destination for families and friends. It has something to keep everyone entertained – both for those looking to be kept on their toes or for those looking for the exact opposite!
