    The cottage was exactly described online. The staff could not have been more helpful.

  • "A beautiful little property in a lovely village."

    There were gorgeous views of Snowdonia and the sea within minutes and great local walks. The quick drive to Prestatyn was precipitous and a little alarming the first time I drove it. It was clean and comfortable and the owner was helpful and friendly. The decking out back was delightful. I would definitely consider a return visit.

    The cottage was very clean and well equipped, as well as idealliy situated, between the coast and the hills. There are plenty of walks from the cottage itself without needing to drive anywhere but also a variety of interesting places to go to if the weather is not so good. The owners were very helpful and even lent my husband some walkimg boots as he had left them behind. We would like to go back some time in the future.

  • "The cottage is well located in order to explore the welsh coast and countryside."

    There is so much to see and do in this area. We visited Colwyn Bay, Caernarfon and Beaumaris to name but a few places. However, there are no major roads so the roads tend to be narrow and steep. For us, this wasn’t really a problem.

  • "The location of Tan Y Bryn was beautiful."

    The village is only a a mile or so, (down a steep hill) from the seaside resort of Prestatyn, but it is a world away in terms of peace and unspoilt countryside. There were historic medieval gems in the nearby towns just waiting to be discovered. It was so much more than I expected. I would recommend it to any one who thinks they have done Wales.

The property

A delightful, detached stone cottage, set in the grounds of the owner's home, ideally located in the heart of the picturesque, conservation village of Gwaenysgor in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, two miles from the coastal destination of Prestatyn, on the popular North Wales Coast.

Comfortably furnished throughout, this pretty, detached cottage combines simple styling with modern day comforts, making it ideal for two people to enjoy the delights of the area, offering easy access onto the Offa’s Dyke Path which passes through the village.

Entering through the hallway into a modern open plan sitting room with dining area and a cosy, woodburner-effect electric fire, you will feel at home straight away.

The kitchen makes good use of the space provided and is fitted with all your daily requirements, whilst access to the owner’s utility room with washing machine, along with additional freezer space is just yards from the cottage and is readily available on request.

There is a downstairs shower room and a first floor mezzanine bedroom off the hallway, with a comfy super king-size double bed which can be twin beds if desired.

Outside, there is a private, secluded, fenced garden area with a decked patio, set against a terraced stone wall which allows you to enjoy the lovely fresh countryside air whilst enjoying a coffee and reading the morning papers or cooking an afternoon barbecue after exploring the local area.

If you don't feel like cooking then why not take a short stroll just three minutes to the popular village pub with its excellent restaurant, the perfect spot for a night off from the kitchen?

Many walks and cycle routes can be enjoyed from the doorstep of this lovely cottage, and it is a birdwatcher’s paradise with The Point of Ayr RSPB Nature Reserve close by.

This wonderful cottage offers everything required for walkers, birdwatchers or romantic couples to have a fantastic holiday.
