  • "The views from the cottage are beautiful."

    Very secret hideaway, lovely and quiet. We visited numerous places and venues to eat whilst there, the cottage is pretty central to many places of interest. So great situation as a base. We had a lovely well deserved break. Cindy and Steve are a lovely couple. If you do visit Dolphin Bach, take advantage of a treatment with Cindy, you will not regret it, very relaxing and beneficial. Thank you Penny n Adrian

    Thanks Penny & Adrian, it was a pleasure to have you stay at our cottage. Glad you found it a useful base and that you enjoyed the massage treatment. We hope to see you visit again in the future. Regards, Steve & Cindy Property Owner

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage with fantastic view."

    A good area for touring North Wales. The cottage has everything we needed with a nice welcome pack. All the rooms were a good size. The enclosed back garden was ideal for sitting in the sunshine and enjoying the view and ideal for the dog. Cindy and Steve are a lovely couple, very welcoming and very helpful. We have had a very relaxing time we would book it again.

    Thank you for your positive feedback, Cliff & Esther. It was a pleasure to welcome you to our holiday cottage. We appreciate how far you travelled to get here and we look forward to welcoming you and your beautiful "boy" back in the future. Regards, Steve & Cindy Property Owner

The property

Dolphin Bach, an inviting, single-storey cottage rests in the small hamlet of Dolphin and enjoys stunning views of the Dee Estuary and Flintshire coastline beyond.

Situated next to the owner's home, this North Wales cottage has been fully renovated to accommodate all guests, including the less mobile, being all on one level, with wide doors, a large wet room, and disability aids available on request.

Perfect for couples, or even friends sharing, this property makes a great base for those seeking a tranquil and romantic retreat.

Inside, you will discover an open-plan living space, ideal for rustling up an evening meal for two in the kitchen, having a games night around the dining table, and relaxing in front of the woodburning stove with your loved one as the evenings grow darker.

When sleep calls, head to the well-presented double bedroom, to drift off into a deep sleep after a day of adventures, while the wet room provides space to get ready for another fun-filled day of activities.

Outside, immerse yourself in the tranquillity of the Welsh countryside by enjoying a spot of alfresco dining out on the furniture, or simply take in the wonders of nature and wildlife in its natural habitat on your doorstep.

Take a day trip to the vibrant seaside town of Rhyl, where you can soak up the sun on the sandy beach, dive into water adventures at SC2 Rhyl, or enjoy a peaceful stroll around Brickfields Pond.

For a taste of city life, head to Chester and explore attractions such as Chester Zoo, the historic Chester City Walls, and the bustling Chester Market for delicious local fare.

In Ellesmere Port, dive into a world of marine wonders at Blue Planet Aquarium, indulge in some retail therapy at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, or catch the latest blockbuster at Vue Cinemas Cheshire Oaks.

Enjoy all of this and more by booking Dolphin Bach.

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