  • "Beautiful, peaceful cottage, close to all North Wales attractions."

    Clean and comfortable and modern in design. Outside area was private with lots of room for my 3 year old grandson to run and play. Highly recommended.

  • "What a beautiful cottage and part of Wales."

    the fixtures and furnishings were of a very high standard. The views amazing. Beds so comfortable and the pictures do not show how much space you really have. Easy reach of major towns , villages and churches. Would love to go back again if in the area in summer and make more use of the huge orchard garden. Thank you both

    Thank you Penelope for such great feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and we would love to welcome you back again. Laura & Gary Property Owner

  • "The cottage was immaculately clean and extremely comfortable ."

    Very well equipped and great views from the lounge and rear garden. A lovely place to come back to after a day out. We always like to book a place with private ,secure parking and this was just right . Lots of walks from the door . Great to have a pub just across the road, just a shame they don't do food ! Would definitely recommend to friends and family . The bottle of wine and Welsh cakes were a lovely touch and very welcome. Thank you

  • "Beautiful cottage, situated in a lovely part of Wales."

    Very clean property tastefully decorated etc. Comfortable bed in master bedroom, and all kitchen appliances to hand if and when one decides to cook. Friendly pub about 500 yards from property. Good cross country walks nearby. For some guests, maybe the television could be a tad bigger for the size of the room it is in. But a really lovely place to say.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will look at the size of TV. You are welcome back anytime. Laura & Gary. Property Owner

    Orchard Cottage was very clean and quiet with a nice view through the orchard to the estuary, we enjoyed our stay shame the dishwasher was not working

    Thank you for your nice feedback. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay. We were not aware you had trouble with the dishwasher until you had departed. Of course we are always happy to help at any time and would prefer to resolve any issues immediately. In fact in this particular instance we checked the dishwasher prior to the next guests arrival and it was in perfect working order. The instruction manual is available in the cottage if required. Sorry we didn't have the opportunity to help. Best wishes. Property Owner

  • "The property is extremely clean and comfortable."

    It is spacious, beautifully furnished and well equipped, in a delightfully peaceful spot, with lovely views and garden. We were very pleased with our stay. The only slight drawback is the one bathroom which also includes the toilet. This did not present a problem for our party 2 adults and 2 visiting grandchildren, but it would be more tricky with a larger party..

  • "The one thing about this property that you cannot appreciate from the photographs is how big it is."

    It's massive. Some of these cottages are decidedly 'cosy' for two people but this would fit two families. It's a genuinely fabulous place to stay. Loads of parking and while the road to get there is small it still has lines painted down the middle, which in this part of Wales is unusual in my experience with Sykes Cottages. Very highly recommended.

    This was because we felt we could just knock on their door if we needed anything. The owners were lovely and gave us all the privacy we needed. Also happy to chat when I popped out to say hello. The cottage itself was beautiful with flowers all around and 5 acres of private land to explore. The welcome gifts were such a touch of elegance. We definitely didn’t want to leave. The best cottage we have stayed at, with lovely beaches nearby and very friendly locals.

  • "We spent a very relaxing week at Orchard cottage, it was a home away from home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage had everything we need for our stay and we would not hesitate to return. Orchard cottage is in remote location where we could enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside but at the same time within 45 mins drive to Liverpool and Chester. We had a very restful break. Sienna This is not by any means a criticism but merely an observation - the accommodation would benefit from a second bathroom and the wardrobes and cupboards in the bedrooms could do with some replacements. That said we would not hesitate to return to orchard cottage in the near future.

  • "A spacious, clean, nicely decorated & furnished cottage with a beautiful large orchard garden, in a secluded yet not out of the way setting."

    Great views from the garden towards the estuary. There was a thoughtful welcome hamper provided, alongside vases of freshly cut flowers, a lovely touch. We would like to offer a few points for consideration, these being, a few essential items could do with being replaced in the kitchen. Ie a larger new frying pan, more baking trays plus better cutlery. Perhaps supply enough for 10 or 12 settings, rather than 6, as you do use plates& cutlery etc when preparing. We were a group of 6 adults & although the cottage was roomy, we felt that another bathroom would make a huge difference,( there is ample room for one). Also the 2 adults in the twin room found the duvets far too small. Overall we enjoyed our stay but on reflection would say that the property is perhaps better suited to a family with young children/ babies.

    It's very private, being down a track off main road and within grounds of owners house. The garden is secluded and when sunny, offers lovely sunbathing opportunities. The cottage is in fantastic condition and well furnished. We can honestly say it's one of the cleanest cottages we've been to and a credit to the owners. A great week at a lovely property.

  • "The cottage was immaculate and beautifully designed although there is only one bathroom and no other toilet which would be more suitable for 3 guests - luckily there was only the 2 of us."

    I think it would be appropriate to mention that the washing machine is in the garage, which wasn't a problem as luckily the owner pointed it out to us. There was lots of goodies crisps, biscuits, bread, apple chutney - presumably made from the apples in the orchard, eggs, milk and bread and fresh flowers, It really was a beautifully kept home and would highly recommend it. The map I used on my phone to navigate there, "on arrival at our destination" told us to turn right, which was 'before' where we needed to go - so provided you get to the Bluebell Inn - it is literally opposite there. We really enjoyed our stay and it really is close to lots of places - Grocery store, Talacre beach, Chester and Liverpool so even though we only had 2 good days of sunshine, there was plenty to do - or not as it was such a nice home to stay in. Thanks to the owners for a well looked after holiday home. Sue and Paul

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Orchard Cottage."

    The house was very clean, beautifully furnished and decorated. Situated in very peaceful surroundings, we were able to sit out in the garden for dinner to enjoy the summer weather. The kitchen was well equiped with everything we needed. The owners paid attention to every little detail to ensure our stay was comfortable: a lovely welcome pack on arrival, a chest of toys for the kids and even torches to navigate in the dark if you are brave enough to venture outside during nightime in to the nearby local pub! Owners were very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. The house was usefully set on one level so it was easy for my dad to walk around without the need to take any stairs. Many places of interest were within easy reach including the beaches of Anglesey (eg. Newborough Warren), seaside towns (eg. Llundudno), pretty gardens (eg Bodnant Gardens), and Snowdonia mountains (eg Cym Idwal). Totally recommend this cottage for a relaxing retreat.

    The family that own the cottage and live on site were lovely and very friendly. The accommodation was wonderful with everything you could possibly need including luxuries like Netflix, board games, picnic mats and magazines. When we arrived we were greeted with a wonderful hamper of goodies to keep us going until we could reach a shop. The cottage is beautiful with modern furnishings. The gardens were fantastic for the children and they had many hours of fun running around the orchard and playing in the fields. There were many little walks we took through the woods at the bottom of their field which the kids loved. Opposite the cottage is a little pub which is small and quaint but lovely. The people were very welcoming and gave us lots of advice on places/beaches to go and visit. We will definitely be looking to go back to this cottage and would like to thank the owners for making our stay delightful.

About the location


Mold 5 miles; Chester 15.5 miles.

Halkyn a pretty, scattered Welsh village in an elevated position overlooking the Dee estuary. This is an area of Special Scientific Interest, surrounded by 2000 acres of common land. This Welsh village is well known for its walking and mountain biking, and adjoins the Wat’s Dyke heritage trail. Conveniently located a few miles off the main A55 Welsh road, this North Wales village is ideal for exploring the North Wales coast, Snowdonia National Park and Anglesey and, being a short distance from the English border, you have the Roman city of Chester with its famous walls, amphitheatre and historic rows. For a day trip you could visit the vibrant cities of Liverpool or Manchester, both within easy reach, while a little further afield, why not visit the emerald island with the Holyhead to Dublin ferry a little over an hour away? So with Ireland, England and Wales all waiting to be explored, this village is an ideal base at anytime of the year.
