The Britannia Inn, situated at the foot of the Horseshoe Pass, is a family-friendly inn with incredible mountain walks on its doorstep.
The Britannia Inn was built in the 14th Century by the Monks of the nearby Valle Crucis Abbey. With its extensive view of the Vale of Llangollen below, this friendly Inn has long been a place of solace for locals and holiday makers alike.
The Britannia Inn offers two lounge bars, an elegant dining room and several outside seated areas from which to enjoy the changing seasons of this beauty spot. This pretty pub has won many awards for its floral displays, making it a lovely place to sit in summer. In winter, guests can enjoy real ale from the cosy bar while taking in the sparkling snow that frequents the Eglwyseg mountains just 15 minutes' walk away.
Known throughout the area for its hearty food, diners can enjoy a relaxed meal in one of the smart lounge bars, or make an booking in the elegant dining room.
Upstairs, the Britannia Inn offers six double en-suite rooms that are individually decorated in a charming cottage style. For families, the Suite is ideal, as it features a double bedroom for parents with adjoining lounge area plus a double sofa bed. Please note that some rooms come with a shower or bath only, so guests are advised to check if they have a specific preference. The rooms at the front of the inn also have lovely views down the valley.
The Britannia Inn is located in Llangollen, which is a perennial favourite for families due to its steam railway of Thomas The Tank Engine fame. For the historically minded, Chirk Castle, Valle Crucis Abbey and Errdig Hall are all within easy reach.
For a spot of shopping, historic walled Chester is very accessible via car. Meanwhile walkers, white-water rafters and mountain bike enthusiasts will find their playground either in Llangollen, or the Snowdonia Mountain range, just 40 minutes away.
