The property

Resting in rural North Wales, Lorien is a wonderfully large detached house enjoying an elevated position in the village of Caergwrle.

Offering five bedrooms, a spacious garden and traditional style, Lorien is perfect for a family or group of ten seeking a tranquil retreat in North Wales.

Come together in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, you can get to work on the evening meal making use of the excellent appliances and electric Range cooker while the rest of the party keep you company at the long dining table with a glass of wine, with the table extending to seat all ten guests.

A handy utility is home to more appliances including a washing machine, tumble dryer and another fridge/freezer, so you can wash any muddy walking clothes and store your week’s worth of fresh food!

Relax in the sitting room with plenty of soft seating for all to find a spot, flick on the Smart TV and watch a family favourite film or show in here.

Head out into the garden for a special evening around the fire pit up a set of steps carved into the rock, with a lawn for children to play on and two patio areas, they'll be a sunny spot for everyone, as well as bike storage.

The ground floor is home to three of the five bedrooms, including two twin rooms and a double, along with the property's bathroom, made up of a shower room, a bathroom with a bath and shower over, and a separate cloakroom with a basin and WC.

About the location


Wrexham 5.6 miles; Chester 12.1 miles; Llangollen 16.2 miles.

Resting in the North Wales county of Flintshire is the small village of Caergwrle, around six miles from the bustling hub of Wrexham with its shopping and retail selection. Sitting at the base of Hope Mountain and lying on the River Alyn, Caergwrle enjoys a lovely rural setting, and is home to Caergwrle Castle, a ruined 13th century castle built by the Welsh Prince Dafydd ap Gruffydd. The village has a pub, Ye Olde Castle Inn, as well as a SPAR and several takeaways, with more selection found in the surrounding villages of Hope and Cefyn-y-bedd. For outdoor fun head to Alyn Waters, a country park with plenty of wooded trails and riverside paths, with a playground and a visitor centre, the National Trust's grand estate and landscaped gardens at Erddig, and Nant Mill Visitor Centre with a beautiful nature area and rich with wildlife. Nearby Wrexham has a wealth of shops, pubs, bars and restaurants to enjoy, or why not head over the border into the Roman city of Chester, where more amenities await as well as lots of attractions including Chester Cathedral, Chester Zoo and the City Walls. Llangollen is a wonderful day out along the banks of the River Dee with its heritage railway, excellent vintage shops and Llangollen Park.
