About House By The Dyke

At the top of Offa’s Dyke this 1930s villa is in a great spot for exploring nearby Chirk Castle.

The holiday home boasts a large rear terrace with a seating area and lawned gardens, perfect for relaxing and admiring this spectacular countryside.

Enjoy a long, lazy alfresco lunch with all the family before exploring the nearby Chirk Castle and its grounds. Take a tour with one of our rangers and see how the support from your stay helps us to care for these special places. You can also pick up information on the many walking trails available, including the famous Offa’s Dyke. 

Further afield, experience the slower paced life of the beautiful canals of Llangollen. Snowdonia, with its spectacular mountains and towering waterfalls, is also just a short drive away

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
