The property

Afonwen 1 mile. Converted from part of an old watermill, this detached studio cottage stands in a delightful "away from it all" location next to the River Wheeler, in the picturesque grounds of the owner's home, near the small village of Afonwen.

Offering welcoming, cosy studio accommodation, this Afonwen cottage is ideal for a romantic break.

With your own patio and lawn, this is a wonderful location to relax and enjoy the huge variety of wildlife that inhabits the river's edge including kingfishers, badgers, otters and many more.

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the northern edge of the lovely Clwydian Hill Range, this Afonwen cottage is in a perfect location for touring North Wales or enjoying the market towns of Denbigh, Mold and Ruthin.

Holywell, home to the famous St. Winifred's Well (described as the Lourdes of Wales), is within close proximity as is the sandy beach at Prestatyn.

Surrounded by golf courses, walking and mountain biking, this is an ideal base for day trips to medieval Chester, Victorian Llandudno and all of the Snowdonia National Park.

A welcoming Afonwen cottage, perfect for a year-round romantic break.
