The Cross Keys Self-Catering Holiday Cottage is full of charm and character as you would expect in an ancient building.  Semi-detached in the oldest part of the Village and within walking distance of the River Dee, internationally famous for its fly fishing and is also walking distance from the popular Local Real Ale Pub, which is open every day from 10.30am. The pub  is child and dog friendly and serves food.   The Cross Keys is also on a bus route, linking the towns of Llangollen, Wrexham and Chester or  to the west, the Seaside towns of Barmouth, Fairbourne, Harlech, Porthmadog, Portmeirion and Criccieth.

Cross Keys and the village of Llandderfel lie on the central  edge of Snowdonia National Park to the north and west and to the Berwyn Mountains to the south and east on one side of the River Dee Valley.  On the other side of the Valley and to the east, lie the Llantysillio Hill Range and the Clwydian Hill Range, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  This area is undoubtedly  one of the most beautiful parts of North Wales and in fact the UK.  The River travels through the valley toward Llangollen, with its Heritage Steam Railway now extended to Corwen.  The Canal, Hill  Fort and International Music Festival.  As the Dee travels further to the sea, it passes under the Pontcysyllte  Aqueduct and Canal, a World Heritage Site.
