Glan Aber is a former Victorian textile factory where local wool was prepared and manufactured for the textile industry. Set in the stunning Dee Valley in South Denbighshire, North Wales, the property stands in the River Trystion and dates back to the early 1800s. The property is situated within the village of Cynwyd with a local pub, The Blue Lion, together with a shop and post office. The River Dee flows through the village and is renowned for its Salmon fishing. There is easy access to tourist attractions such as the town of Bala and Llangollen and the medieval town of Ruthin. The property is within driving distance to attractions such as Surf Snowdonia, Zipwire, and Bounce Below. The area is a hot spot for walking, canoeing and cycling, and other outdoor pursuits.
Glan Aber sits on the outskirts of the lovely village of Cynwyd, within walking distance to all the village amenities including the village public house, The Blue Lion, and the village shop and post office. The Blue Lion has an extensive range of drinks and beverages and sells freshly cooked food every day, except on Mondays and Tuesdays. The River Dee flows through the village which is famous for its Salmon, Trout, and Greiling fishing. A car journey away is the spectacular Lake Brenig where you can hire a boat for all-day fishing. The village sits within the Dee Valley and is surrounded by numerous footpaths and cycle tracks, and the scenery is breathtaking all year around.
