Coed-y-glyn Log Cabins, Glyndyfrdwy, Wales 

The outside of Oak Lodge at Coed-y-glyn Log Cabins. There are two chairs outside.

Our first impressions of Coed-y-glyn log cabins were in the dark as we arrived at half five. The cabin was ready for us with Christmas music playing, candles lit, a Christmas tree waiting for our presents and a bottle of bubbly, chocolates and a card on the table. There were even Christmas treats for the children, which was a nice touch.

Tommy came straight away to show us how to use the hot tub and answer any questions we had, then he left us to explore. We were able to contact Tommy if we had any issues throughout our stay and he even asked if we wanted, and brought us clean towels on Christmas day.

The cabin itself was beautiful. It was incredibly clean and well maintained. Down stairs was the fully equipped kitchen with a decent sized fridge freezer, dishwasher, full oven, toaster, kettle and washing machine. The kitchen was open to the dining area with a table and four chairs. There were other chairs around the cabin.

Also downstairs was a double bedroom, complete with smart TV and a bathroom with large bath and overhead shower.

Up the wooden staircase we came to the living room. This room had Christmas music playing to welcome us. There were two sofas, one of which was a pull out bed, a large TV, DVD player and to the kids delight a Wii. Monopoly and another board game were provided.

A door from the living room led to the large private balcony, complete with table and chairs. The view we discovered from the balcony the next morning was amazing.

Also upstairs was another bedroom that could convert from either a King size bed or twin beds. This room had an ensuite toilet and a large walk in wardrobe space.

The cabin overlooked the river Dee which we listened to as we fell asleep on the first night.

The first morning, I went into the large and beautiful outdoor area to relax in the large hot tub. I watched the river go by and a robin came to visit me. It was the first robin I had seen this year and perched on the branch of the huge oak tree, it looked just like a live Christmas card.

I watched as a heron caught a huge fish and a pheasant roamed around with the sheep in the field opposite, flying off over the river as the steam train chugged past. It was Christmas at last and the stress of work and life at home had slipped away!

We spent a lovely Christmas week at Coed-y-glyn cabins, mostly relaxing and spending time together playing games, eating, watching movies and chilling in the hot tub. We ventured out to Llangollen to have a look and to ride on the Llangollen Railway and we went for a little wander down the road to the station and nearby playpark, playing pooh sticks in the river on the way back.

Coed-y-glyn log cabins are beautiful and in a stunning location. They are spotlessly clean and comfortable. We loved our Christmas break and would definitely stay there again if we are ever visiting Wales.

  1. I have always dreamed of having my very own log cabin when I was a child. Well, I still have the same dream, although now, I longer desire to own one, I just want to vacation in one. These log cabins are perfect! If I do find myself in Wales, I will make sure I book a stay in one of those lovely cabins.

  2. it looks like an amazing cabin, I love the wood nature atmosphere, I would love to spend time in this hot tub, and the landscape view outside looks spectacular

  3. This cabin looks so cozy! I’ve been dying to get away for a weekend and just ignore the real world for a little. I may have to see if there are any cool cabins or even a bed in breakfast near me!
