Cottage of the Week – Crogan Coach House, Corwen

There’s so much to recommend at Crogan Coach House that we feel we can’t really do it justice in a single blog post. However, since most holiday cottages offer different activities to match the seasons – and following Andy Murray’s heroic performance last weekend – we reasoned that an on-site all-weather tennis court is probably a fairly large draw for holidaymakers.

Since Crogan Coach House sleeps 16 holidaymakers it’s entirely possible that you can stage your own mini-Wimbledon in the beautiful summer sun we’re currently enjoying. If tennis isn’t your cup of tea you can also access 4 miles of river with salmon, trout and grayling fishing by arrangement. Or if you prefer there’s also 2,500 acres of gorgeous walking country on your doorstep – and if you fancy something to quicken the pulse there’s also a high ropes course and paintballing set in stunning forest is within ½ mile.

Whether you return to Crogan Coach House a tennis champion, having conquered your fear of heights or with the catch of the day you’re sure to find a tranquil oasis where relaxation is the order of business. Enjoy a spacious living room and dining room – both with open fires. A large well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room offers an Aga, cooker, sitting area and a wood-burning stove. There’s a TV, DVD player and stereo with Wi-Fi available at £10 per stay. If you’d like every member of the family to enjoy a break then you can also take up to two pets.

With its Welsh Borders location, the area surrounding Crogan Coach House offers a wealth of activities to suit all ages and interests. The quaint market town of Corwen lies just 8 miles from the typical Welsh town of Llangollen which hosts the International Music Eisteddfod each July. This famous folk festival provides an array of music, dance, poetry and entertainment.

Llangollen is also popular throughout the rest of the year, with white water rafting available and numerous historical sites and attractions to visit. Snowdonia National Park is easily accessible and well worth a visit with its breathtaking mountains offering beautiful views and scenery.

Bala Lake (5 miles), the largest natural lake in Wales, is a major centre for many watersports including sailing, windsurfing and white water rafting. For lovers of good food, there are two gastronomic hotels of note just 1½ miles away. Shop 13/4 miles, two pubs 1½ miles.

There’s plenty more to enjoy and discover in and around Crogan Coach House, but like all good things, the real joy lies in discovering it for yourselves. So if you fancy a break in one of the UK’s most undiscovered holiday regions we highly recommend a break at Crogan Coach House.
