    Big garden for our daughter to run around in and the conservatory was perfect for dining in the evening. Sue was very welcoming and gave us some good tips about the local area when we arrived. The Eagle & Child over the road has a beautiful beer garden!

  • "The cottage was very comfortable with 2 seating areas inside."

    The conservatory was our preferred seating area as it was much lighter than the cosy lounge. As mentioned in the accomodation information, the stairs are steep and you do have to take care when leaving the double bedroom. But it's a cottage and it's quirky and you soon become used to things. Outside there are 3 deep steps to the lawned garden which is completely private. The cottage was very clean and had lots of extras. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. We made use of a walking guide we found on the bookshelf and also visited the pub opposite which was friendly. Only ate there once and would recommend. Lots to do round and about - Prestatyn (try Crispy Cod for fish and chips) and Bodnant Gardens are but two. A highly enjoyable, relaxing 4 night stay and i would highly recommend the cottage. If you're lucky you might catch a glimpse of the peacock which seems to live in a neighbours garden!
