Description

Set within a 2500-acre private estate, Crogen Wing overlooks the River Dee and is beautifully set in AONB.


Situated in one of the most beautiful and undiscovered areas of Britain, Crogen Wing forms part of the 2,500 acre estate of Crogen Hall, but has its own entrance and has been renovated to an impeccable standard. Upstairs comprises of a spacious, elegant twin bedroom and a double bedroom, each with an en-suite. There is also a living room on the first floor with a wood-burning stove. The wing is furnished with a tasteful blend of art, antiques and more contemporary pieces. Downstairs is a stylish farmhouse kitchen with a 2-door aga, opening out onto an attractive cobbled courtyard with a seating area. For exclusive use of guests, there is a large area of garden with furniture to the east of the house, with stunning views to the manicured lawns. The River Dee flows just metres beyond the cobbled yard, and guests in the wing have use of a sitting area set above the river bank, an ideal spot for taking an evening drink and watching the sun sink behind the mountains. The wing is fuelled with biomass heating, and is toasty warm at all times.
Crogen Hall nestles cosily amongst a stunning backdrop of dramatic mountain ranges and pine forests on the Denbighshire/Gwynedd border, on the banks of the River Dee. A high ropes course and paintballing site set in stunning forest is within ½ mile. Crogen Wing is in an ideal location for enjoying the beautiful Welsh countryside, and also for visiting the English towns of Chester and Shrewsbury - both of which offer historical days out. The quaint market town of Corwen lies just 8 miles from the typical Welsh town of Llangollen which hosts the International Eisteddfod Music Festival each July. This famous folk festival provides an array of music, dance and poetry for all ages. 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. For the more adventurous, Bala Lake (5 miles), the largest natural lake in Wales, is a major centre for many water sports including sailing, windsurfing and white water rafting. For food lovers, just 1½ miles away, there is both a Michelin starred restaurant and a local pub. Shop 1¾ miles, pubs 1½ miles.

Dining room/kitchen with oil Aga (for cooking). First floor: Living room with wood-burning stove. Double bedroom with 5ft bed and en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet. Twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet.

    An amazing location and setup - we were made to feel really welcome and Crogen Wing is beautifully located, with great facilities, to ensure we were able to take advantage of all Snowdonia has to offer! There are two local pubs within a short walk, and we made day trips to Coed y Brenin (mountain bike centre) and Mount Snowdon with ease. Highly recommended - we will stay again!

    This is a lovely, atmospheric place. The apartment is very cosy, with everything we needed supplied. The bedrooms - especially the lovely big twin room - are good and bathrooms and kitchen fine. Some of the fixtures and fittings are a little dated but all in good working order, though as a family group who do a lot of cooking, we could maybe have done with a full sized dishwasher rather than the smaller one there. The Aga kept the place lovely and snug and was surprisingly easy to cook on (I'd never used one before) but there is an electric stove too for nervous chefs. The wood stove in the lounge - with all wood supplied free from the estate - was a real boon, and we spent many cosy evenings beside it. The owners were very hospitable and friendly; they gave us good advice about their gorgeous estate, where in the river it was safe to swim / play, the local area etc, loaned us wetsuits etc, gave us eggs and salad from their chickens/garden and gave us the full run of the place. We swam, played tennis and football, walked, watched birds, rabbits and hedgehogs and our children played with their adorable, friendly dogs for hours. The estate is well located for all the outdoor activities in nearby Bala and the Snowdonia national park. Highly recommended for a family group!

    Started badly as property was locked and had to wait over half and hour to gain access. Property is in a pretty location but did not compare to staying in Snowdonia National Park. The grounds of the property can be explored and are very nice. Interior of cottage could do with updating, beds and duvets need replacing. Only had Wi Fi for one day and TV is very small. Firstly it should be noted that £50 is payable in cash on arrival. Our understanding was that the payment was for heating and although this was not necessary in June we still had to pay. Secondly It should be noted in the description of property that the owners prefer access to the property at all times through a connecting door. We found this extremely intrusive and did not like the lack of privacy.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We thank you for spending time to comment on Crogen Wing, and again, apologise most sincerely for the delay in gaining access. The property is never locked when guests are due to arrive, hence our advice “Please let yourselves in and make yourselves at home, we will pop in when we know you have arrived…” I cannot answer why it was locked on this occasion, and my husband, in recognition of the inconvenience, gave our guests a bottle of Champagne. Again we offer our sincere apologies. Re beds and duvets - We are surprised at this comment, as it is one thing that very many of our guest’s remark on, the extremely comfortable mattresses, pillows and smart “The White Company” linen. Re Wi-Fi: I cannot answer this, as we had not been made aware by yourselves that it had gone down. The £50 fuel charge - this was suggested to us a few years ago by the agency, however, we will be looking now to cancel it, as we agree that the price should be all inclusive. Regarding the connecting door - my recollection of our conversation was that I explained the reason for keeping it unlocked was for Fire Safety. Having learnt from you that you felt uncomfortable with this arrangement, I invited you to lock the connecting door, as your wellbeing was most important to us. I assumed that you had therefore locked it, so am confused by your comment. I do hope this response is helpful and hope you enjoyed your stay overall.
