Situated on the wooded slopes of the Berwyn mountains, Bron-y-Graig is a luxurious eight-bedroom Victorian house with tranquil river and mountain views. The house overlooks mature terraced gardens and is surrounded by woodland with a stone-lined stream, dramatic rockface and mini waterfall. This fascinating courtyard house was built in the 1880’s as the family home of the Sheriff of Denbigh, and has been substantially upgraded with modern facilities complementing William Morris décor. Bron-y-Graig’s coach-house has been converted into a generous holiday cottage with two en-suite bedrooms, and the outbuildings afford useful fitted storage and workshop.

Set in the beautiful Dee Valley, it is the ideal base for exploring Snowdonia, Chester and North Wales' abundant castles and coastline. The Llangollen Steam Railway passes through the valley below from Llangollen all the way to Corwen. The new station is directly opposite Bron-y-Graig, only 200 metres away.
