Dave and Jenny own Parc Grove Bed and Breakfast, offering friendly, high quality holiday accommodation in the beautiful Dee Valley AONB. Our lovely home is situated at the foot of the Berwyn Mountains in the hamlet of Llidiart-y-Parc (‘gateway to hunting forest land'). The surroundings are peaceful, yet Parc Grove is easily accessible from the A5. Parc Grove is a ‘house of two halves,' the oldest part dating back to the mid nineteenth century. We spent two years uncovering its history during renovations, which provide modern facilities tailor made to ensure that visitors have a pleasant and comfortable stay.
Parc Grove has three comfortable well-appointed guest bedrooms with lovely views along the valley … stunning patterns of colour and texture are made on the hillsides as the light changes throughout the day according to the seasons.
Our guests are welcomed with traditional home baked Welsh refreshments. For all meals, locally sourced ingredients are used whenever possible. Locally sourced ingredients are used for all meals whenever possible. Enjoy our varied menus, including a full Welsh breakfast (meat or vegetarian), our free range eggs, fresh fruit and vegetables, homemade bread and yogurt.
The reception room is yours to relax in and we can help plan your activities using our large collection of maps and brochures. We know how important it is to have dry kit, so we have installed a purpose built drying room.
Parc Grove is an ideal centre throughout the year, as there are many leisure and sporting activities as well as numerous beauty spots within easy reach including Snowdonia. However, there is no need to go far beyond our gate … experience the soundscape over the background of the mountain stream. Many rare birds and plants are found around Parc Grove and the nearby Berwyn National Nature Reserve. Walks suitable for all abilities begin from the house or by taking a short car, bus or steam train journey. Have a watery day … go canoeing or rafting on the rivers Tryweryn or Dee, picnic by the nearby river, visit the magnificent Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall, stroll along the Llangollen canal, or try fly-fishing.
Go back in time to explore the ancient hill forts and castles of Denbighshire. Visit more modern engineering marvels such as the breathtaking Pontcysllte Aquaduct, a World Heritage Site. Listen out for the nostalgic whistle and watch the steam from locomotives on the Llangollen Railway before taking the 5 minute stroll from Parc Grove to board a train to Llangollen, which is home to the famous International Musical Eisteddfod.
