Yew Tree House bed and breakfast is only 300 yards from the Llangollen Canal, the Shropshire Union Canal and the Montgomery Canal at Frankton Junction near Welsh Frankton. Its location is ideal for a trip along the canal. You can book a boat for the day, or just enjoy the walks along the canal.
Each room has its own separate entrance and a terrace for relaxing in the evening. Light and airy with vaulted ceilings they feel like a stay in a luxury hotel. Bamboo floors and contemporary local art work on the walls add to the luxurious style of the rooms. Cotton bedding and hypo-allergenic pillows are sure to please. The rooms are equipped with complimentary mineral water and a selection of refreshments. There are flat screen tvs with DVD players, magazines, a hair dryer and best of all the ability to adjust your own heat. There’s even free wi-fi internet for the addicted or the visitor who needs to keep in touch.
For breakfast there’s home baked bread and free range eggs. Bacon is from local free range pigs, and sausages are handmade locally.
The garden, created by the owners, has hidden areas and secret paths. Both shrubs and flower beds provide colour. Among the unusual trees in the garden are a Himalayan bean, tulip tree, and weeping ash. There are over 20 different types of apple trees approximately 40 years of age. Owner Clive Wilson has peopled the garden with his wooden sculptures from two to fifteen feet tall. He offers a two day course in didgeridoo making.
New in 2011 is a summerhouse, a place where you can unwind and relax, in a beautifully peaceful area of the woodland, well away from the house. The views overlooking the fields towards the Welsh hills are absolutely stunning.
There is a verandah to sit out on warm days and evenings where there are comfortable chairs, books, games, sketching materials, coffee/tea making facilities and table and chairs to enjoy a picnic or a take-out.
There is even a "Woodburning Stove" (runs on LPG gas) to keep you snug and warm, so not just for the summer, but all year round.
Clive and Jo Wilson are friendly, accommodating, and helpful—in short, the perfect hosts. Yew Tree House is one of the best places we’ve stayed. It’s perfect in every way.
Thanks to the owners for the photos.
