We are open for bookings and hopefully from mid April we will be taking guests . Book a Spring or Summer break in the lovely Ceiriog Valley and relax.

Stay at Megan's holiday cottage surrounded by the gorgeous Welsh countryside with meadows of sheep with their baby lambs, jumping and skipping in the spring sunshine.

Megan's Cottage has something to offer all ages and is ideally situated for countryside walks, fun days out or just relaxing and admiring the wonderful views from Megan's cottage.

And a bonus is the local Inn just a short stroll from the cottage.

The reason Ysgubor Celyn has Megan in its name:

Megan was our much loved boarder collie who started her early life in the old derelict barn ,she was destined to be a sheep dog but Megan had other idea's and so did her farmer owner. I used to see her looking at me longingly from under the old barn door when I walked passed with my Labradors ,she looked so lonely. I ask the farmer if we could have her , eventually he agreed and Megan came and lived with us next door at the Local Inn. She loved coming back to stay at the cottage and exploring her old haunts.

Sadly Megan passed away in 2013 ,but she will always be remembered with much love and affection . Gone but never forgotten.

Megan's is a characterful detached barn conversion situated in the village of Llwynmawr, in the heart of one of the most picturesque settings in North Wales, 3 miles from the village of Glyn Ceiriog and 6 miles from Llangollen. The cottage in Llwynmawr has been designed and renovated to offer excellent accommodation for a family gathering or for a group of friends to discover this beautiful region. The cottage boasts a well-appointed large kitchen with centre island, alongside a separate dining room, which has the added benefit of a wood-burner and patio doors to the garden. The volted ceiling sitting room also has a wood-burner and features french doors and glazed panels along the length of the wall offering stunning views across the valley, plus there is a light and airy conservatory. There are four bedrooms, with two king-size doubles upstairs in the older part of the cottage, which benefit from modern styling coupled with quirky features, including exposed oak beams and joists. The other two bedrooms, a king-size double en-suite and a family room, are on the ground floor and are complemented by a double sofa bed in the sitting room. There are also three bathrooms and a w/c. Outside of the cottage are large gardens on three sides of the property, with relaxing patio areas, giving plenty of space for the children to play whilst you relax with the babble of running water from the fenced stream, plus there are many doorstep walks that radiate from the village, The local 18th century Mulberry Inn is within a short stroll and it has an excellent reputation. Just a few miles away are the popular towns of Chirk and Llangollen, whilst a short drive will bring you to the Roman city of Chester or the magnificent Clwydian Hills and the Snowdonia National Park. This cottage offers stylish, luxury accommodation in a superb location for a fantastic holiday destination all year long. Come and stay at Megan's and enjoy all that stunning North Wales has to offer.

Holiday time

One of the best, if not the BEST holiday cottage, we have ever stayed in, fully equipped for everything you might need, housekeeper in the village, pub nextdoor very peaceful holiday. We have stayed here several times now and we've never been disappointed.

Date of stay: September 2020

Wonderful Place

Though booked through Sykes our only contact was with Jannette the actual owner. With the Covid-19 situation it was impossible to get hold of Sykes. Jannette first made contact a few weeks prior to our arrival and kept in regular contact and was willing to offer a refund right up to the last minute if we had to cancel. Something Sykes weren’t prepared to offer.

Well, after much trepidation we decided to go ahead and we weren’t disappointed. Far from it, what a delightful place; the village, the area, the cottage, the gardens. Just what we all needed. Jannette has thought of everything and has a very capable housekeeper who we were also in contact with.

We loved every minute, the grandsons did, the dog did, in fact everyone had a wonderful time.

I’d also recommend the Mulberry Inn next door...lovely food and very accommodating.

Date of stay: 31st August 2020

I stayed here with my two dogs last year and what a brilliant time we had. There's so much picturesque countryside to explore, the dogs loved it!

There's loads of space for the children and dogs to run around while we relaxed. Perfect x
