Alex & Viv Property Owner Reviewed by Emily5.0★Aug 2023 "Bawbee Cottage is a superb place to stay set in spacious grounds." Very well fitted out and was spotlessly clean. Alex and Viv were excellent hosts and keen to ensure that everything was fine for us. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Bawbee Cottage. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found everything to be spotlessly clean for your holiday. It is very important to us that guests are happy with the accommodation so thank you once again for your review. Kind regards Alex & Viv Property Owner Reviewed by Michael5.0★Jul 2023 "Best holiday cottage we have ever had." Very comfortable and beautifully appointed. Owners, Alex and Viv, were very helpful and attentive, and nothing was too much trouble. As the location was an AONB so we didn't need to travel far to be in lovely countryside. Weather was extremely hot during our stay so an added bonus was the large garden with stream where we could chill out under the trees after a long day out. Absolute bliss! We would highly recommend this property, and very much hope that we will be able to return in the not too distant future. Sheila and David Thank you so much Sheila and David for such a fabulous review. We are very happy that you had such a wonderful stay at Bawbee Cottage and would love to see you both back in the future. Kind regards Viv & Alex Property Owner Reviewed by Sheila5.0★Jun 2023 "Wonderful cottage and gardens." Every thing you could need. Very clean and well equipped. All the rooms are very spacious well furnished. Alex and Viv, the owners leave in another property in the grounds and we’re very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this property to stay in when visiting this part of Wales. Thank you very much for taking the time to give a review and your kind comments.

Thank you for taking the time to review your break at Bawbee Cottage and for your kind words and positive feedback. Best wishes Viv & Alex Property Owner Reviewed by Andy5.0★Aug 2022 "The cottage was amazing , everything was of a very high standard and we couldn’t of wanted anything better" Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Viv & Alex Property Owner Reviewed by Claire5.0★Jul 2022 "Everything about the cottage was excellent - from the phone call before we arrived to the welcome pack and letter." The standard of the cottage and the maintenance of it was second to none. I would highly recommend it. We will definitely be back. Reviewed by Gina5.0★Jul 2022 "We had a lovely, relaxing holiday at Bawbee Cottage." It is a clean, comfortable, spacious, well equipped place to stay. The weather was very good, ideal for walking everyday from the cottage. Alex and Viv provided very considerate welcome items and also marked out a path through the grounds for us to follow almost to the ‘old road’ to Bodfari to avoid the ‘A’ road. The ‘old road’ gave us access to the National Walking Trails and, of course, the lovely meals and sun terrace at the Dinorben Arms! Reviewed by Christine5.0★Jun 2022 "Absolutely beautiful, perfect, idyllic countryside retreat." We had a very quiet, relaxing stay at Bawbee Cottage. The cottage itself is stunning- modern but retaining its rustic charm. The grounds are just incredible. A huge garden, a stream and decking area-absolutely incredible. Beautiful views of surrounding countryside. The owners were very welcoming and kind, letting us borrow a ride on tractor for our toddler. We had a wonderful stay. I really cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Really hope to return one day. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Bawbee Cottage. Thank you for such wonderful comments it is much appreciated. Property Owner Reviewed by Jenny5.0★Jun 2022 "This lovely cottage, surrounding grounds - huge lawn and beautiful stream, cleanliness, style and comfort have exceeded all our expectations!" We had a perfect family holiday, were able to rediscover North Wales and Snowdonia, enjoyed games and picknick in the garden with the kids and just recharged the batteries. Did not want to leave at all! Thank you Alex and Viv for being such wonderful hosts! You created a dream ✨️ Thank you so much for your kind review. You were the perfect guests. We hope to see you again soon xx Property Owner Reviewed by Malgorzata5.0★Apr 2022 "Bawbee Cottage is a perfect retreat." Idyllic setting with trees, lawns and a stream. Good location for walks, Cadw sites and the coast. The cottage has a lot of character and is clean, spacious, well equipped, cosy and comfortable. We had a great stay. Reviewed by Jonathan5.0★Sep 2021 "It was more than we expected as we have stayed at a few holiday cottages over the last few years." Very spacious, lovely and quiet, had everything we needed for the week. The owners were very welcoming even though they weren’t around on our arrival by texting us to ensure all was ok. Will definitely be back again as this has been the best cottage we have stayed at. Reviewed by Lucy5.0★Aug 2021 "We had a great stay at Bawbee Cottage!" Viv and Alex, the hosts, are a lovely couple - happy to help and stop by and have a chat. The grounds are huge, we took a badminton set etc for the kids (and us) to play and the owners came out and gave the kids a swingball game to play outside too! The only thing that could have improved our stay was the double beds - the mattresses were ultra soft and not great for bad backs. Kitchen was more than well stocked with cutlery and utensils and the bathroom was fab. Such a nice cottage with beautiful grounds, we would definitely stay again! Reviewed by Sarah4.7★Jul 2021 "Everything was made hassle free and easy going from start to finish." The cottage was ideal in every way, well equipped, well managed, well located and the owners clearly go out of their way to make this happen. Lovely people providing a very high standard of service and accommodation. The high service continued after we had left when we found out we had left items behind. It was all dealt with in a friendly and professional manner. Great Place to visit Reviewed by Ross5.0★Jul 2021 "Beautiful cottage with stunning gardens." Really gives you that home from home feel. We will 100% be back soon. Reviewed by Sophie5.0★Jul 2021 "A fantastic cottage that is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean." The pictures are completely accurate and we couldn’t fault anything! Lovely gardens with a stream to the river and terrace that is perfect for morning sun. The garden keeps sun until very late evening so you always have somewhere with sun or shade. The scent from the roses and colours from the peonies was heavenly - a place that has been given much love by the very friendly and approachable owners who also respect your privacy. The road caused us no problems at all and we slept well. Lots of great pubs with character within a 5-10 minute drive and the local pub in Bodfari walkable in 40 minutes. All facilities in Denbigh which is a 10 minute drive away. This was a great base to explore North Wales. Cannot recommend highly enough - we had a wonderful break. Thank you Viv and Alex - we hope to return and visit more of the area as we ran out of time! Reviewed by Sarah5.0★Jun 2021 "The cottage is beautiful and the garden area is delightful." Viv and Alex are extremely welcoming and helpful. We had a fabulous week exploring the area, and fortunately the weather was 'playing ball' too. I Reviewed by Kim5.0★May 2021 "Beautiful cottage ." Very high standard of furnishings and cleanliness. Definitely recommend. Reviewed by Stephanie5.0★Apr 2021 "We very much enjoyed our stay at Bawbee Cottage." This is a lovely recently renovated country cottage with well looked after grounds. We were lucky with the weather which enabled us to eat in the outside seating area. The cottage has a very homely feel about it, perfect for our relaxing weekend. Well equipped, comfortable every thing we wanted. We enjoyed the walks in the area with stunning views. We will definitely be returning to Bawbee for its location, comfort and value for money. Just to note (if eating out and require a taxi, book in advance- Bodfari Taxi's). We thought we could walk to the Dinorben Arms but the road is too busy to do that. Reviewed by Kim5.0★Sep 2020 "Bawbee Cottage was lovely." Home from home. The setting is also beautiful, with a stream and pleasant woodland that you can wonder through. Everything was just great clean, modern decor, patio with BBQ.

Today, this pleasant village is home to a pottery gallery, whilst the surrounding area boasts a range of good country pubs and eateries. The Offa's Dyke Pathway is easily accessible and the ancient market town of Denbigh, with its celebrated 13th century castle and pretty streets littered with shops, pubs and restaurants, is just 4 miles away. Endless, beautiful countryside surrounds this lovely area, which offers excellent walking, cycling, fishing, and nature and bird watching opportunities.
