  • "We absolutely loved this cottage."

    It’s warm and welcoming, spacious and very well equipped. It’s a lovely tranquil setting and take away food from the pub was delicious! The owners couldn’t be more helpful. They’ve thought of everything! Great walks in the local countryside. We will definitely be back again soon. Thank you

I travelled with my little dog who absolutely loved the freedom of the garden ,local walks and the close by beaches, Finally the hosts are outstanding and genuinely nice people nothing was too much and everything was thought of to provide you with a brilliant stay.

    Nice pub with good food down the road if you can tear yourself away from the fabulous kitchen! Great hosts who made us feel very welcome through clear communication and a lovely hamper at the property, would highly recommend.

  • "A lovely cosy cottage in a quiet little village, with beautiful surrounding countryside and great views."

    The cottage was decorated to a very high standard, and was very clean, with a welcome basket which we appreciated. There is a very large, secure garden which our 2 dogs enjoyed exploring. The local pub (literally a 2 min walk away) 'The Fox Inn' is small and cosy but full of very friendly locals who enjoyed chatting with us. We ate there twice and it is good pub food. You need to book in advance though as it is popular with the locals. We enjoyed local walks from the cottage with our dogs, including through woods beside the local lake. The single track lanes around were very quiet and easy to walk on, with only the occasional local driving past. Dave, the owner, contacted us before, during and after our stay and was very helpful. Would definitely recommend - in a perfect location for visiting both Chester and North Wales.

The property

Caerwys 3.1 miles.

Garreg Wen is located in the historic centre of the ancient village of Ysceifiog, midway between the beautiful St Marys Church and the award-winning 18th century Fox public house, Flintshire.

Within beautiful grounds that back on to countryside views, Garreg Wen is the perfect set up for up to six guests and two well-behaved dogs for a peaceful rural escape.

After a day of exploring, kick back in the living room by the woodburning stove, and with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor you can stay toasty in the winter.

Outside, you'll find an enclosed garden with a patio, ideal for those summer barbecues, or if you fancy going out to eat, you’ll find plenty of local amenities and attractions nearby.

When hungry, rustle up your favourite meal in the large, country-style kitchen equipped with a butcher's block and dining table for six guests.

Upstairs you’ll find a king-size with en-suite, a 4’ double bedroom and a twin room, serviced by a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with a freestanding bath and large shower where you can freshen up after a long day.

If you feel like venturing out from your tranquil base, head three miles to the village of Caerwys where you can find a children’s playground, and for a hearty meal out, The Fox Inn is a great choice.

The village also offers a bowling green and tennis courts, plus amenities such as a butchers, pharmacy and a post office; alternatively, if you feel like taking in some history or doing some shopping along the way, why not stop in at some of the nearby market towns such as Mold, Denbigh and Ruthin?

The immediate local area is abundant in county walks and bike rides through quiet lanes and open fields with breathtaking views of the Clwydian range and Snowdonia in the distance, so make the most of the local footpaths.

Further afield, discover the historic Roman city of Chester, home to the famous Chester Zoo, a museum, a Roman amphitheatre, watersporting opportunities, shopping facilities and one of the most renowned racecourses in the country.

The lively seaside towns of Conway and Llandudno are also an easy drive away, offering lovely sandy beaches, promenades, harbourside walks and piers, ideal for ice cream in the sunshine.

Snowdonia is within reach, ideal for birdwatching, hiking, watersports and more.

The property also allows access to the cities of Liverpool and Manchester.

Booking Garreg Wen will provide an ideal base for family and friends to enjoy all that this beautiful region has to offer.
