Chirk, just off the A483 bypass near Llangollen, Oswestry and
Wrexham. Chirk Castle and Offa's Dyke Walk plus the Canals and
Aqueduct are all within a short walking distance, as is the tiny
rural station and pretty High Street with its Black and White
architecture and ancient church of St Mary's. Prices are reasonable,
and there are special offers off-season.
Llangollen, with its outdoor adventure activities and famous Musical Eisteddfod, is just a 15 minute bus ride away and buses run regularly to Llangollen, Glyn Ceiriog, Oswestry and Wrexham from nearby bus-stops. Chirk railway station has regular connections to Chester, Shrewsbury, Birmingham and London and in April 2008 a direct train service to London will commence. Plans are currently being discussed to re-open the old Glyn Valley Tramway to Pontfaen and later Glyn Ceiriog, and for narrow boat enthusiasts and golfers, just a short drive away is a Marina and Golf Club.
