  • "In the absence of the owners, their older children were very friendly and helpful."

    We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed several walks out the door and in the surrounding areas. Overall the place was lovely and comfortable. Lovely king bed made by the son. And I loved the bath tub! It's a very peaceful location with stunning views. However, there were a few quirky issues, poor lighting to read by at night, and awkward light switch locations. I imagine in the summer it is very busy with so many accommodated there. we were right by the gate into the swimming pool and the users of the pool were back and forth which was a bit unsettling. However the big picture is very good!

    The location is amazing, accommodation, pool and hot tub were fab and the owners (and their son) were really helpful and full of good ideas for days out etc.. Centrally located for easy reach to many locations, by car. No complaints or problems whatsoever. A great holiday. Thanks again.

    A beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting. Our hosts were helpful and showed us around upon arrival. The amenities were spot on. The hot tub was a special treat for myself and my daughter at the end of each day. We will definitely be back xx

  • "The cottage was lovely, comfortable bed, beautiful surroundings and good facilities."

    Loved the ‘Juliet balcony’ in the bedroom with distant views. The owners were very helpful and friendly, giving us any information we needed and we can also recommend the local pub (The Dinorban Arms) in Bodfari, the food and service was great. Nice walks across the fields to the river with our dog and the added luxury of the hot tub made for a great break and with lots to see and places to visit locally or slightly further afield, the location proved perfect. Thank you!

  • "Cottage was lovely and very comfortable, perfect for a couple."

    The owners live right next door, and were very helpful with advice and directions, and left some nice touches like a bottle of wine on Christmas morning. Hot tub was brilliant. Plenty of lovely walks for the dog. We would definitely stay there again.

  • "We chose this property as it appeared from your advertising to be the only one on the farm (obviously apart from the owner's property)."

    We found that there are other properties (two perhaps three) and what appeared to be a private garden area for our exclusive use was in fact shared. We were particularly disappointed when on more than one occasion one of the other guests walked her dog across the grass in full view of our property whilst smoking (the guest not the dog!). We much prefer to be away from other people whilst on holiday and this was one of the reasons for selecting this cottage. The location was very good for us to explore North Wales. The whole property was a little "tired" and although looked as though a lot of thought had gone into the original design the upkeep has not been maintained. Not sure when the photographs for your web site were taken but perhaps you should visit to see how it looks now. We had meant to leave a list of specifics for the owner but forgot, the list will be sent direct to them.

  • "Great location with wonderful views and lovely grounds."

    The accommodation was spacious and comfortable and had King sized bed. Often met the owner whilst he was on his chores; very friendly and a keen and experienced horticulturalist who gave an enthusiastic tour of the grounds. A very pleasant stay with a throughly nice atmosphere. Ideal location to explore the area including the north wales coast and Snowdonia National Park. Also very dog friendly.

  • "The secluded location was really quiet and relaxing and the owners of the property were on site with local recommendations for places to visit and eat out."

    The swimming pool was a welcome bonus as we visited during a heatwave and the surrounding fields of animals and small wooded area and ponds had plenty of interest for our two dogs. The nearest pub is dog friendly and also very good and nowhere is too far to travel for good walks and sightseeing. Excellent, would definitely go back to the same premises.

  • "Had a really relaxing stay in a great dog friendly location."

    Easy accessable and good eslocation as a base to visit different areas of North Wales. Can't praise the cottage and holiday enough as theres great local Wales, dog friendly pubs, and the cottage by far exceeded our expectations as you couldn't ask for more. Large open plan living room/kitchen, enormous bed and spacious bedroom and a fantastic show and bath. This cottage has all the amenities you could ever want. We will definitely be returning another holiday as we had a five star relaxing stay and welcome.

About the location


Denbigh 4 miles; Mold 12 miles; Chester 25 miles.

The small village of Bodfari is peacefully located in the lovely Vale of Clwyd, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, beneath the imposing Clwydian Hill Range. Steeped in history, the village has taken on many roles, such as a Celtic camp in 500 BC and a Roman encampment, while the original Church of St Stephen pre-dates the Norman Conquest. 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. This is a wonderful base from which to explore the whole of North Wales and the Roman City of Chester.

Note. This property charges a £30 energy supplement due to increased costs.
Hot tub available for £25 supplement.
