Overview

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 .

Fantastic Property In a brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Comfortable, clean, well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage is really comfortable, clean, well decorated and well equipped with everything you could need. Hot tub is a plus. No wifi as advertised which was a bit of a problem as we need access for work (we are self employed so still have to work even when on holiday)
