“A winter's break while at work”
Reviewed 16 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I was working in the area, (Mold, 15mins drive away) during January and February and came across this place from the digs list provided by my place of work. After spending the first week in a budget hotel this stood out as a bit of luxury. The web-page was easy to use and well presented, (trust the directions when finding this place) the photos were a true indicator. Contact from the owners was swift and clear also, they were more than happy to arrange the pick up of keys around my awkward work schedule.

Upon arriving, I couldn't have been more excited to stay, this place is beautiful, and done to a very high standard. It was clean and had all that one could need without being cluttered. I felt at home instantly. The house had all that was needed for winter survival on your own, TV and internet, kitted kitchen, under floor heating, good shower and bath, and a jaw dropping master bedroom to relax in.

I stayed for a little over 5 weeks and I found myself wanting to come back earlier and work from the comforts of this lovely cottage. It is directly attached to the main house, but at no point did I feel like I was intruding. The owners were always on hand if I needed anything, but left me to my own devises really. It was a total luxury while away working, and in the snow of late January, was utterly beautiful.

It is a personal choice to put yourself far off the beaten track like this place is. Without a vehicle it would probably not work for a long stay. But I loved it here, with the quiet and lovely surroundings. I happily sat by the log burner in the bedroom, either working, or reading late into the night. I'd come back and stay in a heart beat.

“Family Xmas”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Everything was great: the directions clear, the location was stunning (even better if it was a clear day), the property full of character, and a good cake there to start us off.
There was enough room for us all to be comfortable and find a quiet spot when things got hectic. The hosts were discrete but very helpful.
All was fine and I'd certainly recommend it.

“Beautiful Welsh cottage, everything we needed.”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a brilliant week. The cottage is fantastic. Well presented, warm, comfortable, ample room for a family of 5 and within easy reach of lots to do in North Wales. I'd not hesitate to recommend this.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed in the cottage for a week over new year with my wife, two young children and another couple. The cottage was perfect for us, spacious and well kitted out. There was even a fully decorated Christmas Tree when we arrived which was a really nice touch. The owners had also left a bottle of champagne in the fridge for new year (presumably) and also supplied milk, tea, coffee, dishwasher tablets - all the essentials! They even left a good selection of baby toys.

The area feels wonderfully remote while still being within 20-30 minutes of Chester and Llangollen. We recommend going to Chester Zoo and the Llangollen steam train, both of which were brilliant for both adults and children.

We had a brilliant week and would thoroughly recommend for anyone else (families, romantic getaways etc).
