About the property

Stone built converted barn set in stunning countryside

A 2 bedroom, detached, stone built cottage on a Welsh Mountain Pony Stud farm , with spacious living accommodation set in a rural location with stunning views across the surrounding countryside, about 3 miles from the market town of Holywell. Outside there are good sized grounds with furniture and pleasant rural views. It is well placed for access to the North Wales coast and countryside and also its towns and castles including the walled town of Conwy. There are excellent country walks on the doorstep and the property is situated close to a bridle path leading to a wooded hill topped by a Roman watchtower with panoramic views over the sea. It is also close to the ancient, Roman walled city of Chester with its Roman amphitheatre, fascinating architecture and fine restaurants and shops. Please note : we are a working farm so at times there may be typical farm noise, but on the whole a quiet location . Please be advised check in is after 4pm .

This accommodation is simply fantastic, the owner is lovely and was really helpful with any questions that we had, I would certainly recommend a stay at the cottage, very peaceful , amazing hot tub and superb views. The welcome basket was a great addition for our stay. Thankyou Jo for letting us stay in your property.

This amazing cottage has the WOW factor!

  • 5 of 5

Our second trip to this amazing cottage in the countryside and we will definitely return. Greeted with a wonderful friendly welcome and superb hamper of goodies to get us started. Jo and Paul are brilliant hosts, ensuring that everything is just perfect.

The recent addition of the hot tub was the icing on the cake for me and my family.

The cottage is very spacious and everything is spotlessly clean. It is well equipped in the kitchen. The lounge is comfortable with many DVD's provided.

The king size bed was super comfy. I had some amazing nights sleeps there. Definitely home from home with some lovely walks and amazing views. Thanks to Jo and Paul for making for making our stay there so perfect!!! This is one not to be missed........

The cottage is immaculate and ideal for a long weekend break. As for the hot tub. That was the icing on the cake. Would highly recommend for couples and small families for a peaceful break away.
