Great views, from the House by the Dyke

Exterior of the House by the Dyke holiday cottage

The House by the Dyke is a 1930s villa located near the Kitchen Garden and with spectacular views along Offa’s Dyke and down into the Ceiriog Valley.

With its large, open rear terrace the picturesque House by the Dyke is the perfect place to unwind and take in your surroundings. Large interior rooms and plentiful parking mean there is lots of space to relax, and with Chirk Castle and estate right on your doorstep, and many other unique tourist destinations within a few minutes drive, it is the perfect base from which to explore the local area.

" Well maintained, clean property in a beautiful, peaceful location. Excellent for walking from the door - Offa's Dyke, canal and aqueducts; good local shops."
- House by the Dyke visitor, April 2015
