All reviews are taken from either Jasmine Cottage’s visitor book or from email feedback. We hope you find the comments informative:
November 2022: Very helpful owners who sent info about walks and places to eat in the area. We visited in November but the cottage was cozy.
October 2022: Lovely cottage in a great location for generally enjoying the area. Excellent communication from the host. Thoroughly recommend staying here.
October 2022: We were really comfortable here, and had a lovely time. As another reviewer said, the cottage was even better than the pictures - I really like the kitchen. The views were great with the autumnal colours. The sofa bed is far larger and more comfortable than most - and it worked well having people sleep in there as the living room is separated by a door. It's a lovely area.
August 2022: The cottage was very spacious and generally I good condition. But what made the whole experience most enjoyable was the owners.
Their communications were excellent, from when we made the booking until after we left and arrived home.
5 stars - at least
July 2022: Everything was just amazing. We had a great stay with our two children and my parents. It’s spacious and the host was excellent. You won’t find a better cottage at this price. The view from the cottage is breathtaking. It was a nice change cooking in the kitchen with views of mountains and sheep. Wish we had stayed a bit longer, 4 nights were not enough.
May 2022: Great time had at Jasmine Cottage. The house was clean and homely. Our boys felt at home straight way and loved having their own en-suite off the bedroom. Lots of local walks on the doorstep which were really enjoyed. Walks into Llangollen, the Abbey, Aqueduct, Dinas Bran. There was so much to see and do, just didn’t have enough time. Ceck in easy, wifi worked well, good communication from Ian and Yvonne.
August 2021: Our second visit to Jasmine Cottage. A great base to explore from. The cottage is clean and well equipped and it's fabulous that each bedroom has its own en suite! It's huge with great living spaces and a big kitchen, where we spent most of our time. Lovely views and local pubs. Great walks. So glad we came back.
June 2021: The communication with the owners was excellent. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed. Beds extremely comfortable. Beautifully placed within the countryside with stunning views. Lovely walks into Llangollen but taxi was only £9 for 5 of us to travel back. Can highly recommend.
September 2020: Very nice spacious cottage , very clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay ... Great location peaceful atmosphere great views
August 2020: PERFECT HOUSE in a PERFECT LOCATION!!... Spent a week as a family of five in this wonderful spot, and cannot recommend enough. So much to do and see within walking distance, from the rugged hilltop castle to LLangollen's gently flowing canal. Venture into the town for a great variety of shops and eating places, or splash around in the River Dee. A 15 minute drive in virtually any direction opens up whole new things to explore, including Telford's aqueduct in nearby Trevor (which we kayaked over) and the impressive 'World's End' gorge. We even had a day on Anglesey, driving through Snowdonia on the dramatic A5! Ian replied within minutes to any query we had and recommended places to shop for food and essentials. Kitchen very well provided with utensils and great dining table, and with three en-suites, there was never a race for the bathroom! TOP SPOT!!!
December 2019: Lovely house in a beautiful location. Spotless.
November 2019: Wow, an amazing place. 3 en suites were ideal for our work trip. Very informative welcome; restaurants, pubs, walks etc. Would definitely recommend.
October 2019: Just got back from an amazing 5* stay at Jasmine cottage. It was everything and more than what we expected. It would be hard to find a cottage with such magnificent views, surrounded by mountains and hills, the air is so fresh! You feel like you're away from it all, its peaceful and very relaxing. Yet its only a short drive into Llangollen with lots of shops, eateries supermarket etc. The property has loads of room, its cosy and modern, a big kitchen, a large dining table, en-suite in every bedroom with showers, although one en-suite has a bath too! Lots of cooking equipment, soap in every room, washing up liquid, a few essential cooking items, and we were left a lovely bottle of wine! There's 2 large terraces and a small veranda situated off the upstairs lounge looking out onto Violet Hill directly behind the cottage. To the front is a beautiful oak open porch, I loved having a morning cuppa on the porch, looking at the best scenery, there's nothing blocking the view! Its stunning! Communication was fast, and Ian and Yvonne catered to all our needs. All in all a fabulous time had by all the family, made better staying in such an amazing place xx
September 2019: The location is hard to beat. Stunning scenery and so much to do in the vicinity. We recommend a trip to the near by Abbey and enjoyed a pub meal in the Britannia Inn.
July 2019: Great location and so relaxing and quiet, the perfect place to relax and take in the scenery
May 2019: Lovely cottage in lovely surroundings and lots of nice walks straight from the cottage.
October 2018: I stayed, together with my family (4 adults and a child) arrived from Italy to stay in Jasmine Cottage from 27 October 2018 to 30 October 2018. Interpreting the common thoughts of my family I can say with absolute firmness that I have spent a holiday unforgettable. The cottage was cozy and well furnished, clean and structured to have everything available. The photos, beautiful, can not describe so precisely, the care of cleaning the cottage. I repeat structured and well organized and above all there was everything needed to spend a fantastic stay. Towels, bed linens, appliances all worked and all at your fingertips. The precise directions before arrival and the instructions after, precise and accurate, have allowed to find everything very easily. No complain, also because there was nothing that was not as said and written. The cottage went well beyond the apsettative and certainly when I return to visit my sister I will stay in this beautiful and enchanting cottage surrounded by greenery and peace
September 2018: Booked the cottage for seven of us to stay for a short weekend. The cottage was absolutely amazing, had stunning scenery and provided plenty of room for a large group. Ian and Yvonne were amazing and offered a mountain of information to help with our stay. We would love to make a return visit!
August 2018: The cottage is really lovely and has everything you need. It's well thought out for families, and we really enjoyed our week staying there ,so much so one of our children kept asking if we could buy it and move there‚ the kids loved it there and all liked having an ensuite! I notice from a previous review there was a problem with the toilet system before our stay but we had no problems so I think this must have been rectified. The cottage is really beautiful and very clean and well thought out, it has a lovely feel to it which makes you feel at home .The owner Ian was very helpful and friendly via email, he sent through lots of information about the cottage and the areas around to explore and nice places to eat which was really useful. There are lots of really pretty walks around the area and it's a nice walk into Llangollen . We didnt have the best weather when we stayed but i can imagine its stunning in the sunshine and the cottage has a nice bbq area and very pretty little garden with amazing views we really couldn't fault it. Would definitely recommend.
July 2018 “An Ideal Cottage in stunning surroundings. We had a wonderful stay at Jasmine Cottage.This was our second stay,after a short break last winter we couldn't wait to return to enjoy the cottage's outside space and the beautiful surroundings in the summer weather.The cottage is very spacious and comfortable,a real home from home.The facilities provided were some of the best we have been offered in any of the many self catering properties we have stayed in,from the outside space,off road parking to the kitchen and dining area. Our hosts Ian and Yvonne really have thought of everything,providing walk suggestions and comprehensive instructions on the facilities provided in the cottage, making it so easy for us, the only thing we had to do was enjoy our holiday!The location was also ideal,with plenty of walking from the door,we particulary enjoyed a loop taking in the clwydian way,the Offas dyke path,dinas bran castle,llangollen canal toe path,and our favourite,velvet hill, which backs onto Jasmine cottage.Thanks Again, We will be back!”
June 2018: Had a 3 night stay at the cottage (Friday to Monday) but could have stayed longer. The cottage is really clean and well equipped and the seating areas outside are lovely, so peaceful and with beautiful views that it was nice to just sit for once and relax and enjoy the scenery. You can get into the centre of Llangollen with a 5 minute drive or the walk down is lovely at about 30-40 mins strolling pace. We were given lots of pre-arrival information on the area and the walks etc and can honestly not wait to book again. We have been raving about the place to everybody we know (need to watch that or it'll be booked up!) and 3 days after getting home, I am still pining to be back there. Definitely recommend for booking.
February 2018: Girly catch up with school friends, we have just spent a fabulous weekend in Jasmine cottage. We couldn't fault it. Well equipped for our needs. First night was spent cooking a meal and catching up, we didn't move from the well equipped kitchen diner! First full day, decided to walk to Llangollen and ended up at Pontcysyllte aqueduct which was a bit scary for two of us but worth it despite the aching feet!! We dined out that night however on reflection think we ought to have stayed "home" and made the most of our comfortable surroundings. Next time then.... We're not picky and so no recommendations from us although we were all grateful that we weren't compelled to do any ironing during our stay! Loved the 3 ensuites, I slept in the single room which by comparison to the other rooms is small but hey! I was only sleeping in there! Was fine with the added bonus of an ensuite!! Found a great local taxi company Premier (Gareth) it was like having a chauffeur! All in all we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend which went by in a flash. We're already planning a return.
July 2017: stayed for 4 nights in july .me and my son enjoyed staying at jasmine cottage it was clean and well presented and would recommend it to anyone who wanted a quite laid back time with plenty of walks and not far from Llangollen centre.
May 2017: I along with 4 work colleagues who where attending a water course nearby stayed in this lovely cottage. What can we say, accommodation was perfect for us, everything you need, with views to die for. We hit lucky with the weather and for four nights we sat outside in the nice little sun trap, and made good use of the BBQ. Pub on the doorstep, wasn't the best but was good enough. Planning on booking again but with my family. If I was to give one bit of advise, was that parts where starting to look tired, but am sure the owner knows what he's doing and will tidy up the small bits that need it.
February 2017: We stayed for 3 nights in this wonderful cottage. It has a massive kitchen and dining area downstairs with one bedroom and big en suite. Upstairs is a living room and 2 more bedrooms, all en suite. Stayed with my partner and 3 children and had a brilliant time. Lovely views and plenty of good walking areas.”
December 2016 “Such a lovely weekend at this cottage, I couldn't have asked for anything nicer, the cottage was really clean and homely. I stayed with my family and we were so sad to leave as we loved it that much! We have all agreed to come again! To top it off the owners seemed really nice, they were helpful and sent over lots of things to do with our stay! 10/10!!!!!!!!!
October 2016: We have travelled a lot over the last 20 years and this has got to be one of the lost treasures in accommodation ...i could only describe it as a place to go if you need to rest and recover and escape from the madness of modern life .We will be back.
September 2016: A fantastic location, with a superb standard of accommodation, it was almost shame we had to get up early each morning and head out somewhere, we will be back without a doubt.
February 2016: we just wanted to let you know that we had a lovely weekend at your cottage. The accommodation was beautiful, and both ourselves and the girls thoroughly enjoyed the rest. The weather was rubbish, but to be honest we just really wanted a chilling break, so it didn't spoil it for us.
November 2015: Absolutely Fantastic. Given the nature of the Visit we didn’t get a mass of time to spend in the cottage, but I have to say it has to be one of the nicest rental houses i have ever stayed in. Couldn't praise the owners more. Everyone of us who stayed at the house were blown away by the cozy nature of the house. Will 100% be back in the summer months to explore a fantastic area of Wales. Llangollen is a lovely town set in a picturesque area of North Wales with so much to do and see. Thanks once again for the hospitality provided.
October 2015: Just wanted to send you a quick email to Thank you for our stay at Jasmine Cottage, we had a lovely stay. the cottage was beautiful and well equipped!
I was looking for a quiet retreat for myself and 4 other mums, and we really had a great time.Thanks again and we will definitely be returning.
July 2015: We have just come home from 4 brilliant nights in this cottage. There were five adults and one baby and there was plenty of space for all of us. The place is spotless and fabulously decorated. The view out of the front is lovely. The rooms are all reasonably sized although the small room is very small but for one person it serves it's purpose. I really would recommend this place and we will certainly be going back there again.
Easter 2015: We had a lovely stay in this cottage for Easter weekend. It was an ideal spot for visiting the area. We visited the “Ladies of Llangollen”, walked to Chirk along the canal (we got the bus back) and walked up Velvet Hill and the Horseshoe Falls. The cottage was great - impressed by the photos and enjoyed several games of Pointless.
March 2015: Thank you Yvonne and Ian for the opportunity to stay in your beautiful holiday cottage. Jasmine cottage has proved to be a wonderful base to explore many places of interest (and so many stunning walks literally from the doorstep!!). The walks Ian has recommended are all very worthwhile doing. A must is to visit Pontcysyllte Aqueduct although the walk across is not for the faint hearted! My favourite walk was up to the ruined castle just above the town. The climb is quite hard but the views are stunning and worth the effort. The cottage, the weather and the area all exceeded our expectations. It was dry and bright all week with excellent visibility, so perfect for walking. The walk to Llangollen via the back of Velvet Hill is a must as the views are spectacular. Thoroughly enjoyed the train ride to Corwen and our trip over the Horseshoe Pass to Ruthin. The Britannia Inn and the Chainbridge Hotel are both worth a visit. Lots of fabulous walks, stunning scenery and just a really nice feel about the area. A really enjoyable holiday.
February 2015: Just wanted to say thank you. I booked jasmine cottage for my friend’s 40th birthday and we all had a lovely stay. We couldn't fault anything. The cottage is really lovely, spotlessly clean and comfortable and in a beautiful location. We hope to stay again in the near future, hopefully for longer.
February 2015: Really beautiful cottage that has been a true pleasure to stay in. Everything is so clean and there has been plenty of room for us. The kitchen was perfect for cooking, couldn’t have asked for any more. Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Thank you!
December 2014: It looks like we are the first people to stay at Jasmine Cottage - lucky us! The cottage is really lovely, both in decor and situation. We followed a couple of the walks from the guidebook - including the Velvet Hill walk which lent itself to some stunning views (if a bit tiring!). We ate at the Corn Mill in Llangollen centre right on the river Dee which was top class, we also indulged in a Welsh cream tea at a local cafe and had a New Year’s meal at the Britannia Inn up along the Horseshoe Pass (which was still snowy!). We also did a big drive to Bala and it’s Castle plus a cross section of Snowdonia National Park. Overall this was a fantastic break in a great property and we will definitely be recommending Jasmine Cottage to others and be back ourselves!
