Enjoy spectacular views and wonderful peace and quiet in our warm and comfortable former Rectory which has just been completely renovated. Perfect for one or two families wanting to holiday together, but still have some privacy, the house is particularly spacious and well-equipped. The village is renowned for its 2 gastronomic award-winning pubs, only a short walk away. The area is packed with things to do: great walking in the Berwyn Mountains - right on the doorstep, or in Snowdonia beyond; pony trekking and riding just down the road. The beautiful Ceiriog Valley -" a little piece of Heaven on earth" to quote David Lloyd George - is rich in history: visit Chirk Castle, the awe-inspiring UNESCO Telford Aqueducts and amazingly preserved Erdigg Hall, or Llangollen, world famous for its International Music Eisteddfod, Heritage Steam Trains, Horse-drawn Canal Boat trips, and White Water Rafting. There is golf and fishing locally and a new swimming pool in Oswestry.
6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, spacious, comfortable house, equipped to very high standard, wonderful views, on edge of pretty village with 2 award-winning pubs.

About C Meier
We have been coming to stay in the village since the children were little and have always been enchanted by its beauty, serenity and glorious views. When we saw that the house was for sale, we knew we had to try and buy it.
C Meier purchased this House in 2011
Why C Meier chose Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog
We love the fantastic peace and quiet, and yet it is only a short walk down the road to the pub for a great pint and a brilliant meal. During the renovations, we have enjoyed huge support from everyone and have been truly appreciative of the warm welcome extended to us in this really friendly village. The valley is steeped in history and is also home to many talented artists, some of whom generously offer a fascinating insight into their work on “open studio” days.
What makes this House unique
As we think having plenty of space is a bonus on a family holiday, the size of the rooms is especially attractive - we can all be together or simply do our own thing – the 2 sitting rooms with large TVs mean there is harmony at peak viewing times. Our aim was to make the house really warm and comfortable, so we installed very efficient central heating plus wood burning stoves for extra cosiness. We love how light and airy the house is, so there is a real sense of connection with the countryside when we look out of the windows and see the hills and watch the lambs and sheep in the fields. The luxury we decided to allow ourselves when planning the works, was the number of spacious bathrooms: most are en-suite, several having walk-in power rain showers, which have proved a great success.
Check-in: 3:00 PM

100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Excellent property. Nicely furnished and maintained.
Good area to stay in that it is out of the way (not near to any towns and in nice countryside) but still a short walk from a couple of good pubs that do food.
We enjoyed our stay.
Perfect house for a family holiday
A lovely house that was perfect for a family holiday. The house was well furnished with everything we needed. The rooms were comfortable and the garden was perfect for enjoying the summer weather. The house is set in a lovely village with two great pubs that were both very welcoming. The owners were great, even calling after we arrived to check everything was okay. All in all a perfect base for a holiday with three generations of the family.
A fabulous holiday in a wonderful house
We planned a special family holiday to celebrate my sister’s 50th birthday. It was the first time all ten of us - 3 generations of the family - would be taking a trip together with age ranges from 6 to 76! St Garmon’s was absolutely perfect and we had a truly wonderful week away creating some very special memories.
We were absolutely spoilt with the facilities at the house - 6 lovely bathrooms (most en suite) and extremely comfortable beds. The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of fridge freezer space (there are three!). There is a lovely large dining table just opposite the kitchen and it was great to be able to all gather around to eat together and look out on to the hills in the distance. We enjoyed spotting rabbits, grouse, kites and the occasional pheasant in the field behind the house.
Llanarmon is a wonderfully quaint place we frequented an excellent pub (The Hand) across the road which has a pool table and darts with a great selection of beers and food available.
We went for local walks from the house and on a number of day trips including the waterfall at Pystyll Rhaeadr, walks through the Ceirog Valley - we also visited Llangollen and Lake Bala and enjoyed playing croquet and badminton in the garden at the house. We also watched movies in the evening as there is an excellent DVD collection available.
The children did not want to leave (nor did I!) and we have already discussed the possibility of going back - it really is a wonderful place! Thanks to Patrick and Carole for their help and advice and for making St Garmon’s such a beautiful home from home.
5* This is a GEM of a house.
The pictures do not do this beautiful house justice. It is extremely large inside, well equipped and has a real home from home feel. I book a house away every year for our family (4 generations) and this one did not disappoint. It has plenty of rooms if you want quiet time and great family rooms when you all want to get together. We loved all gathering for dinner in the dinning room with a great view out of the patio doors. Over size utility room and boot room which was very useful. The bedrooms are large with comfortable beds, nice bedding, towels and lots of wardrobe space, again fantastic view out of most of the windows. My mum (86years old) enjoyed sitting with a morning coffee just looking out the bedroom window. While the grounds are not so large the children (two 13 yr and two 10 yr olds) never got bored, running around with ball games, chase and hide and seek. The two pubs outside serve good food and my brother says the ale/beer is excellent
There are plenty of activities out side of this lovely little village, driving there is not for the faint hearted though. The roads are narrow and if using a sat-nave it finds the most direct route (over the mountain tops). On saying that we did get used to the road to Llangollen (about 40min away) The children did paddle boarding there on the cannel, (£45 each for 3 hours) a bit expensive but they had a fantastic time. There are some lovely little shops, one shop had pottery painting which the children enjoyed. Barmouth is about 1hr 50min but again lovely day out, beautiful clean beach, small fair and plenty of shops. Oh yes fish and chips as well. Oswestry was about 40mins away but they have a great swimming pool and lovely shops. If you like water falls the Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall is stunning.
The rest of the time we just chilled out in this beautiful house, the weather was wonderful and the views even better, what more could you want.
Perfect house for our 3 generation family holiday
St. Garmons was the perfect house for our anniversary celebration holiday with our children and grandchildren. It has all the equipment you could wish for and bags of space for everyone. The location is delightfully peaceful with lots to do in the area. It was amazing watching the Red Kites in the field next to the garden. The 3 year old grandchildren loved the trains at Llangollen and a day trip in a barge on the canal at Trevor, we all held our breath as we went over the aqueduct.
Many thanks to Patrick and Carol for all their help and advice.
An idyllic retreat and a beautiful home
I searched high and low for a large house that could accommodate four families for a wedding anniversary. Bathrooms were a must, as was somewhere we could all eat together, space the kids could run around, space to relax and wind down, near different activities, clean - you get the general idea! In all honesty I am slightly loathe to write a review in case this gem gets booked up solidly for the next ten years, but I think it's only fair considering what a superb job the owners have done with it. Attention to detail is fantastic, every room has been beautifully decorated and equipped. Think luxury 5* hotel, rain showers, quality fittings etc. The layout is ideal for families as we had two in each side of the second floor and two on the top floor. Bathrooms for all and we didn't hear a thing at night despite there being 5 very young children in the house.
The house was very clean and double dishwashers and washing machines were very useful.
In terms of the area - wow. Stunning all round and lots to see and do in the vicinity. We went on excursions to Chirk castle, the acqeduct, white water rafting, horse drawn narrowboats and park hall farm. Both pubs in the village are also lovely and very accommodating.
I feel very fortunate to have found St Garmon and had the opportunity to bring four families (of old school friends) together under one roof with 6 children, five under the age of 5. It could have been a recipe for disaster, but the size amd space in the house, coupled with the fantastic facilities and location made it one of the most enjoyable holidays we have had. It is a home where many memories are made. Well done Caroline and Patrick!
