The town is perhaps better known for hosting the International Music Eisteddfod in the summer, where thousands of visitors flock every July, but even if visiting out of season there is no shortage of things to do.

Children can experience life as a Victorian and be subjected to a lesson by Victorian schoolmasters at ’The Victorian School and Museum’. Travel on part of the Llangollen Steam Railway, passing scenes of the River Dee along the way, wander around the shops or enjoy riverside walks. Inn 500 yards.

We went to Erbistock Mill for a weekend getaway and couldn’t be happier! The location is off the beaten track, but easy to find, with local shopping amenities a short drive away for that last minute item. Two highly rated pubs in easy walking distance, if you don’t fancy cooking. The Mill has more than ample parking down a private road, covered by CCTV for safety, and the mill looks out over a rushing weir with a local Heron, a kingfisher, and a multitude of wildlife. If you have a camera, you can set up a tripod from several safe, steady positions in and around the weir, including a platform at the back. The interior is charming, although the basement level might be damp due to the proximity with the weir – this was helpfully covered in the details of the property and was no issue at all. Some of the original mill fittings are beautifully preserved in the ceilings, and you can get the feel of the mill operations throughout the floors. With bathrooms on the ground and first floor, a shower and a bath, you have more than sufficient facilities. The first floor held the bedrooms: four rooms with bunk beds, and one twin-bedded room, are warm, comfortable, and provided some of the best nights’ sleep we have had at any property. The rush of the weir becomes a background noise that lulls you to sleep, and the comfort of the mattress and pillows are outstanding. The top floor has an open plan lounge area arranged into sections for people to come together or enjoy time apart as they wish, with a patio door leading out onto a loft-level platform with a stunning view of the weir. The kitchen joins onto the living area, with a fast-heating ceramic hob, and plenty of space within the cupboards for everything you need. I cook every day, and the kitchen more than suited my needs with space, ease of access, and ease of cleaning. The first night, we had two problems: the electricity went off for the plugs (the heating, oven, fridge and freezer are on a different circuit, but the circuit for the plug sockets failed). The owners couldn’t have been more helpful if they tried. First thing at 6.30 am the next morning, they organised the local electrician to attend within the hour, and came out to reassure me they were doing everything they could. After the electrician fixed the issue, the router failed, and again, the owner's husband attended promptly with a new router to ensure we could enjoy our stay uninterrupted by technical issues. I cannot praise Claire and Tim enough for their diligence, attentiveness to our care, their consideration and their kindness in (literally) leaping to the rescue on these two issues. We had a need for internet contact with relatives back home, and this effective and exceptional care ensured we could do just that. Overall, this was a fantastic weekend and we will definitely be staying at Erbistock Mill again. Are there any cons to this review? Alas, only two. Firstly, circular stairs link the floors, so the property is unfortunately not suitable for the mobility disabled. Second, we have several tall people in our party, and some of the ceiling beams in the lounge area may cause you to duck! These are minor points set against an overwhelmingly positive review: I would recommend Erbistock mill for families of all sizes (up to ten) including children and to groups.
