NIcely tucked away location. we found it peacfull even though it was busy. The warders were helpful and nice. the village is with in an easy walk as is the castle. The village it's self has plenty to offer from a Spar to a number of take aways and resturants. The TeddyBare Tea rooms is a must. we also found a pleasent supprise in the Chirk tavern, from the look we assumed it was a converted school house and would be a oldy worldy ale house. No it was a working mens club, The beer and food was cheap, dog firendly and people friendly. We wehere only there for a few nights so we still have a lot to see and explore in the area, so we will be going back.
