Find cottages in North Wales BordersVisit North Wales Borders

The North Wales Borders is situated in the north east corner of Wales with easy access from England and the conurbations of Liverpool, Manchester and the west Midlands. But it's well worth visiting from further afield as it provides for a lovely holiday location in a most beautiful region of the UK. It's a region that has much appeal to holidaymakers with great days out and places to visit and also conveniently placed for trips to the north Wales coast and even Snowdonia.

Offa's Dyke, once a fortified boundary between the kingdoms of Mercia and Powys is today better appreciated as one of the UK's most popular walking trails. At nearly 200 miles long the path takes in some of the region's most spectacular landscapes including the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley which are Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

An equally splendid display of regional heritage can be found at the Llangollen Canal. In recent years UNESCO made over 10 miles of this wonder of engineering, including the amazing Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a World Heritage site. At 1,000 feet long and 126 feet high it spans the beautiful Dee Valley and carried over 1,000 canal boats over the bridge every year.

The Clwydian Range, designated an AONB, extends over 35 kilometres of limestone cliffs and heather clad moorland and is the perfect place for walkers who come to appreciate the wonderful scenery of this part of Wales. Walkers should also head for the Dee Valley, which offers a 15 mile walk from either Llangollen or Corwen, or if this sounds a bit extreme you could consider a leisurely trip down a canal on a horse drawn canal boat.

The region has its fair share of lovely towns and villages to explore, for example the lovely little market town of Wrexham offers a range of heritage sights alongside a number of contemporary attractions and Chirk is an equally attractive proposition with a castle, aqueduct and championship golf course. Mold in Flintshire has street markets, historical buildings and a leading theatre and Denbigh has strong historical roots with a medieval castle and castle walls, museum and art gallery.

This compact area of north Wales has a lot to offer; blissful relaxation, beautiful countryside, great outdoor activities and fascination towns and villages.

Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in the North Wales Borders today.

Magnificent views over rolling countryside

The Stable (ref 28908) and Little Pentre Barn (ref 28907) occupy a peaceful, rural location about 1 mile from the pretty village of Overton-on-Dee in the heart of border country where Wales meets Cheshire and Shropshire. These two detached holiday cottages are adjacent to the owner’s home and set in their own grounds, with separate private gardens. They share a further 3 acres of land with play area, heated outdoor swimming pool with slide, ‘pirates’ den’ and a small pond, complete with island. Above the swimming pool is a covered terrace which offers magnificent views towards the Shropshire border and is the perfect place in which to relax with a drink on a warm summer’s evening. England lies just beyond the lower boundary of the grounds, where the Shellbrook stream marks the very edge of Wales. There is ample parking and bike storage on site. The Stable and Little Pentre Barn offer something for everyone, making this a great base. Relax in the gardens or explore the grounds (children must be supervised at all times); a few minutes’ walk across the fields leads to the banks of the River Dee. Enjoy scenic walks and cycle rides right from the door or visit the local meres. Picturesque Llangollen, the Roman city of Chester and medieval Shrewsbury are just a short drive. There are several NT properties close by. At Chirk, 8 miles, admire the medieval fortress of Chirk Castle, often with activities for young children, and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which carries the canal. Walk across this and explore a couple of long canal tunnels nearby. Erddig, a stately home surrounded by lovely gardens, is 7 miles and brims with antiques. Further afield is Powis Castle, 28 miles, set in a stunning location with one of the best landscaped gardens in the country. Visit Hawkstone Follies, 23 miles, a group of rather odd grottos, monuments, underground passages and ornate buildings set on a magnificent escarpment, or Park Hall, 11 miles, an award winning outdoor farm, good for young children. Llangollen is 15 miles with its steam railway giving lovely views of the mountains. Oswestry, 12 miles, has a large bronze age castle mound, very interesting shops, old buildings and a market. Ellesmere, 4 miles, has a swing park, boat hire and excellent lakeside tea shop/restaurant. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
