How to find us

The Ceiriog Valley lies immediately south of and parallel to the picturesque Vale of Llangollen. Yet it is the Ceiriog Valley that has been called 'little Switzerland' and given rise to three notable poets, undoubtedly inspired by their love for their homeland. It is all the more surprising, therefore, that had Lloyd George not spoken so passionately in its defence, we may never have known of its beauty. The Golden Pheasant is located approximately 5 miles into the valley.



From London and the South: M6 to junction 10a, M54 to A5. At the Chirk/Moreton roundabout, follow signs for Chirk and the Ceiriog Valley (brown tourist information road sign).
