The quiet village of Whitford sits in the North Wales countryside a few miles from the Dee Estuary. The village has a children's play area and tennis courts, and there is a pub with restaurant close to the village. Close by is a Roman watchtower with 360 degree views over the surrounding countryside, Dee Estuary, Wirral Peninsula and beyond. Holywell, 3 miles away, is home to the famous St. Winefride's Well, one of the Seven Wonders of Wales, and the remains of the 12th Century Basingwerk Abbey. Within the locality there are four golf courses, including Pennant Park with a magnificent clubhouse and far reaching views over the River Dee and the sea, along with good horse riding and fishing facilities. There are many lovely walking routes and trails in the area, including The Pennant Walk, Offa's Dyke Pathway and The Clwydian Range. The historic city of Chester, with its famous Rows, city walls and good shopping is easily reached as is the North Wales town of Ruthin, whose castle offers the chance to attend a 4-course medieval banquet. A short journey along the North Wales coast leads to the popular towns of Llandudno and Conwy with its castle, town walls and picturesque setting. The Conwy valley also gives easy access to Betws-y-Coed and the Snowdonia National Park.

Previous visitors' comments about The Granary:
Loved the peace and quiet, it was so relaxing and a 'home from home' - couldn't ask for anything better! Would highly recommend staying there, thank you.

This is an excellent property, a real home from home.
Mr Kelland, Sheffield, February 2013
Excellent condition, everything you need, everything worked. Very pleasant owners who were always there if you needed them but didn't intrude.
Mr Rayner, Horley, September 2012
This was an excellent cottage for a holiday with dogs as the floors were tiled and there was an enclosed area for them to go outside. It was an ideal location to explore the whole of North Wales.
