The Property

This delightful, Grade II listed cottage is located in the centre of Hawarden, close to the England/Wales border in Flintshire. Tucked away behind the existing Post Office and created from the original sorting office, this semi-detached Hawarden cottage dates back to 1910 and retains many original fixtures from its industrial days, which include the original safe with keys, plus pigeon holes for the letters, and provides a wonderful choice for couples who will delight in the hot tub and warm and welcoming atmosphere. A spiral staircase leads you up to the spacious master bedroom, whilst across the landing is a beautiful Victorian-styled bathroom hosting a roll top bath and a separate shower cubicle. The open plan living space in this quaint Hawarden cottage offers a wonderfully-equipped kitchen with granite worktops, along with a dining area and a charming sitting area with feature fireplace and Sky TV. Views from the sitting area fall across the courtyard garden, which boasts a luxury hot tub and paved patio, ideal for relaxing into the evening, perhaps with a barbecue on fine days. From this quirky Hawarden holiday cottage you can stroll out of the door to one of several pubs or restaurants, or browse the shops and local parks, plus a day trip to nearby Chester is not to be missed. This Hawarden cottage is a wonderful choice for a romantic getaway, and a great touring base for your North Wales holiday.

About the location

HAWARDEN

Mold 2 miles; Chester 7 miles.

The former Saxon settlement of Hawarden sits on the Anglo-Welsh border, just seven miles west of Chester, and is steeped in history. Home to three castles, including a 13th century roundhouse ruin, as well as an 18th century manor, where part of the grounds are available to the public to enjoy with a pretty walk through Bilberry Wood. A third romantic keep can be seen at nearby Ewloe, hidden amongst the trees in the attractive estate of St David’s Park, and is well worth as visit. During the 19th century Hawarden was a thriving market town and many traces of its history can still be seen in the architecture along the main street, which today offers a selection of amenities including cafes and pubs. Hawarden Airport is in nearby Broughton, home of Airbus, where you can sometimes see the mighty Beluga aircraft taking off across the Cheshire Plain. With excellent access to Chester and the North Wales coast, Hawarden is an ideal base for exploring the many delights on offer in the region.
