  • "Property was lovely."

    Beautiful inside. Information pack was thorough. The only negative was the hot tub was very chlorinated, so we couldn’t use it.

    Thank you for your feedback and lovely comments we are glad you enjoyed the cottage. The hot tub is clean thoroughly after each use and chlorine is an effective water sanitiser which is important because it reduces the likelihood of being exposed to bacteria and we use the correct guidelines and amount for this hot tub. If you had contacted us during your stay we would have come straight away to check this for you. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

The property

The Old Sorting Office is a well-presented holiday home located in the lovely village of Hawarden in Flintshire.

Tucked away behind a post office, this property is perfectly situated for a romantic retreat while giving couples easy access to the village centre and amenities.

Walk into a spacious open-plan living space where you'll find a sitting area with a beautiful feature fireplace you can sit by as you watch your favourite shows on the Smart TV, cook up delicious meals to enjoy dinner dates in the dining area, then let the food settle with a warm soak in the hot tub where you'll get lost in deep conversations and gaze up at the stars.

As the day winds down, take a rinse or a bath in the bathroom, then slip under the freshly-washed linens of a double bed to catch your rest.

Head out to the village shop next door to stock up on your groceries and essentials, and if you don't feel like cooking, walk across the road to the Fox & Grapes or The Glynn Arms pub for a hearty meal.

In the quaint village of Hawarden you'll also be able to visit the beautiful ruins of Hawarden Old Castle and take a walk around the stunning woodlands of Hawarden Estate.

Book yourself an afternoon tea or lunch at the world famous Gladstone Library a short walk away from the post office or if you fancy a longer stroll pop down to Hawarden Estate Farm Shop and enjoy the very many delights they have to offer.

Further afield, catch a bus for a short journey to the wonderful walled city of Chester where you can visit the beautiful Chester Cathedral, if you're lucky enough too, catch the races at Chester Racecourse - the oldest racecourse in the world - have a picnic in the verdant and blooming Grosvenor Park, and end the day with a trip to the new Chester Market.

The Old Sorting Office is the perfect base for your next couple's retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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.
