  • "Ash Farm Cottage was an absolute joy to stay in."

    Everything, and more, you required for a comfortable stay was catered for. We were greeted with a superb welcome pack, milk, welsh biscuits, eggs and a great deal more. We would have no hesitation in booking again, and would certainly recommend a stay to anyone who would like a quiet, but convenient rural retreat.

    Lovely to meet you both. Hopefully see back at the cottage Gwenda and Phil x Property Owner

  • "A beautiful clean, well equipped cottage."

    The Welcome Pack was really appreciated. Our only disappointment was that, due to poor weather, we were not able to make useful of the excellent outside facilities and fully appreciate the locality.

    A lovely place to stay, very clean and beautifully presented. All that you need for your stay and a bonus welcome pack on arrival was a real plus point The owners were lovely, very approachable and knowledgeable. We used the cottage as a base for exploring North Wales and would highly recommend staying as this beautiful cottage.

    The cottage is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. You can see a great deal of thought has been given into equipping the cottage and it has worked. 10 out of 10 is not a high enough score. Walk in, unpack and enjoy, we did. Already planning to return next year. Thank you Gwenda, Phil and Tara. Sylvia & Alan

    The cottage is clean, modern and cosy inside. We were greeted with a welcome hamper on arrival which was much appreciated. Phil and Gwenda were very welcoming and shared some tips on local walks and places to eat. It's a great location because you have complete peace and quiet at the cottage but are within easy access of the Clwydian hills, north Wales, Chester and Snowdonia. We'd definitely recommend staying here.

The property

Caerwys 3.4 miles / Holywell 3.5 miles / Mold 9 miles.

Ash Farm Cottage is an attractive annexe situated in the rural village of Lixwm in the lovely county of Flintshire, Wales.

With its picture-perfect surroundings and a delightful interior with charming exposed beams, this dwelling is the perfect place to escape on a romantic retreat to the luscious green countryside of Wales.

Enter through the front door and into the handy utility room where you can kick off your boots after an exhilarating walk and put on a quick load of washing, so you won't have to worry about chores upon your return home.

Here, you will also find a handy cloakroom with hand basin and WC.

Make your way into the kitted-out kitchen and let the kettle boil as you prepare a tasty sandwich on the pretty granite worktops, before taking a seat at the dining table and flicking on the TV for some background noise as you map out your adventures for the days to come.

Retire to the sitting room and snuggle on the sofa whilst your other half starts up the electric fire and finds a captivating movie for the both of you to enjoy on the flat-screen TV; the sitting room is home to a corner sofa doubling up as a sofa bed for flexible sleeping arrangements.

Spend the evening laughing with one another as you play board games and work as a team in the kitchen to whip up a meal for two, whilst cracking open a bottle of wine and toasting to precious moments spent together.

Climb the staircase to the first floor to discover a tranquil bathroom to freshen up with a shower or while away the hour with a soak in the corner bath.

Wander through to the double bedroom to select an outfit from the spacious fitted wardrobes, before sitting at the dressing table and taking your time to get ready for a wonderful evening of wining and dining in one of the local village pubs.

Make the most of the shared garden space on warmer days or light up the barbecue and dine alfresco on your private patio.

Close to the border of the English county of Cheshire, there are many luscious walks for you to embark on during your stay.

Take a leisurely stroll along Offas Dyke or Climb Moel Arthur Hill Fort, admiring the outstanding scenery along the way.

Hop in the car for a short drive to one of the many neighbouring towns to explore before grabbing a bite to eat in one of the local eateries.

You could then head on to Greenfield to view the medieval remains of Basingwerk Abbey and the stunning Greenfield Valley Heritage Park, before heading back to the annexe for a cosy night indoors.

For an unforgettable break with a loved one, stay at Ash Farm Cottage.
