  • "This is perfectly located for a walking holiday in north Wales with walks from the doorstep."

    The owners were welcoming and helpful and the property was clean and comfortable. Beautiful views from the bedroom and the garden is private and enclosed. The pub in the village does an excellent range of craft beers.

    Very enjoyable. Popty Bach was an ideal choice for my husband, myself and the two dogs. Ths cottage itself was in a great position for exploring North Wales. The cottage had everything we needed its was cosy and warm, a home from home. The owners were friendly and were very knowledgeable about the local area and just next door if we needed anything. Hoping to book again. Thanks for the wine and flowers.

  • "The cottage was well proportioned for the two of us plus our Springer spaniel."

    The outside space was a good size and perfect for a drink in the afternoon sunshine, with plenty of room for the dog to play in too. The property was well presented with a welcome gift of flowers and wine waiting for us when we arrived. Gwynfor & Eleri popped by to make sure everything was Ok and that we had settled in and found our way around the place. One of the best locations for a short (5 day) break I've every stayed in. The ease of access to several seaside locations was brilliant. With only a short drive we were in places such as Colwyn Bay, Conwy, LLandudno, Rhyl etc.. With woodland and fields on the doorstep too. Ideal for walks with the dog. Would recommend Popty Bach to anyone wanting a relaxing location with the convenience of easy access to the A55 to travel around the north wales coastline.

    Visited many local attractions- lovely cosy cottage with the log burner going! Dogs loved the walks in nearby fields! Unfortunately the village has just the one post office so a 5 minute drive to Denbeigh and Morrisons where we got a cheap breakfast! A visit to Len Brennan is well worth it! Thanks to the very friendly owners who were extremely helpful in looking after us! A great time and relaxing stay at Popty Bach!

  • "We spent the Christmas week in this beautiful cottage."

    It was very peaceful and quiet and the perfect place to get away from it all. We took our dog and the enclosed garden was safe and secure. Although the farm had dogs and we have a nervous rescue dog, who doesn't get on well with others, the farm dogs didn't come over to the cottage and the gate seperating the cottage to the courtyard, was low to the ground so no one could squeeze under. The cottage had everything you need for a break. Although the owners live on site, they aren't in the slightest bit intrusive and offered us a very warm welcome. Plenty of shops near by and the area its self it's lovely. Would highly recommend paying a visit.

    Jazz & Todd, our two pups are always happy to discover new places and Popty Bach was perfectly suited for them to relax after a hard days walking round the delights of North Wales (we were also grateful to return to such a cosy cottage at the end of the day, kick off the walking boots, open a bottle of wine, sit back and enjoy the sounds of nature away from the normal everyday stresses). Its central location is perfect for touring, travelling to places like Caernarfon, Llandudno, Chester, Llanberis to name just a few was easy and the views were always stunning. We can also recommend dropping by the The Old Bakery Tearoom in Henllan to enjoy some great food.

    The cottage was simply "Perfection". It was in an idyllic position, with no passing traffic, a large garden for our Italian Spinone dog. Such a peaceful place to relax and unwind, and the silence was deafening, such a change from one's everyday life. If you go there, just stand still and listen....not a sound and the sun-rise was so beautiful every morning. The cottage had lovely crockery, lovely comfortable sofa, and a king-size bed in a large bedroom with views over the surrounding fields. All the china, the blankets, the shower, the fridge-freezer were high class and smart but extremely comfortable. The owners had gone to a lot of trouble to get Popty Bach so perfect. They live nearby if you needed any advice about the area etc., but were unobtrusive, and lovely to talk to. The Inn within walking distance had lovely food and were dog-friendly, in fact everyone was so friendly too. We just loved our stay at Popty Bach, and we enjoyed a day at Old Colwyn Bay, walking along the beach, again a dog-friendly area. All in all, Popty Bach was a memorable holiday for all the right reasons. Thank you once more to the owners....and to Sykes Cottages. We would love to return!

The property

A beautiful detached barn conversion set within its own courtyard and garden, situated on the owners' 72-acre sheep and cattle farm next to their own home, in a rural position just on the edge of the pretty village of Henllan, 2.5 miles from Denbigh.

This fantastic cottage is a superb romantic retreat for a couple offering a real ‘get away from it all’ location with stunning scenery and surrounding countryside.

The level of attention to detail, with wonderful and unusual items made and locally sourced, make this cottage very special and will create and make wonderful memories for you to take away and cherish.

Appointed to a high standard, stylish, modern and a little contemporary in places, this delightful cottage is spacious, light and airy and has wonderful stripped floorboards throughout.

The impressive sitting room has a large corner sofa where you can relax and snuggle up for a cosy night in, watching your favourite film after a busy day out and about exploring.

The lovely woodburning stove will ensure you are warm and toasty, especially if the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Step out of the French door on to a sunny patio where you can sit with a morning cup of coffee as you plan the day’s adventures or on warm summer evenings is the perfect place to have a glass of something cold, exchanging stories and chatting long into the night, even enjoying a spot of stargazing.

An intimate dining area provides the setting for a romantic candlelit meal for two, prepared in the well-equipped kitchen which caters for all your needs.

A downstairs, modern shower room offers a walk-in double shower and look out for the rather nice, but different toilet roll holder!

Upstairs, this delightful cottage boasts a spacious and dreamy first floor galleried bedroom with a lovely king-size bed, so you’re sure of a good night’s sleep, patio door opening to a Juliet balcony and an en-suite cloakroom.

Outside your lovely holiday cottage is an enclosed block paved courtyard with sun loungers, extending to a walled lawned area with table and chairs, providing a lovely peaceful place to relax and unwind.

The village of Henllan is just a short stroll from the cottage and in the evening you can amble down to visit the Llindir Inn, a beautiful Grade II listed thatched pub, dating back to 1229.

There are some wonderful walks from the cottage, the nearby Clwydian Way leads to Denbigh, just two and a half miles away, so you’ll have plenty of time to explore and enjoy the beautiful scenic countryside.

An ideal base for a quiet holiday or break away at any time of the year.

About the location

HENLLAN

Denbigh 2.5 miles; St Asaph 5 miles.

The small North Wales village of Henllan is situated between Denbigh and the Diamond Jubilee City of St Asaph. The village offers a shop/Post Office and a pub, which serves good food. St Asaph was awarded city status in 2012 and is best known for its magnificent white cathedral. In September, the city comes alive with the arrival of the North Wales International Music festival, which takes place across numerous locations, culminating for the last few years in a television finale, broadcast from the cathedral. Nearby Denbigh dates back to the 11th century and boasts the remains of a 13th century castle, perched on a steep hill above the town, with its stunning castle walls walk and commanding some superb views over the surrounding countryside. The town is seeped in Welsh culture and boasts itself as the home of many Welsh literary giants, including 17th century poet and author, Twm o’r Nant, famous for performing his light-hearted ‘anterliwtiau’ interludes or short plays in the area, famous 19th century printer Thomas Gee who established the well-known Gee Press works in the town, and more recently home of the ‘queen of our literature’, Kate Roberts. Denbigh is a busy little town, with a variety of shops and pubs, and a number of events including walking festivals, beer festivals, the Denbigh and Flint Annual Show, the Clay Art Potters Market and a monthly People's market. Henllan is a superb touring base for discovering the sights and history of the Clwydian Range’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, plus the stunning lakes of Llyn Brenig and Llyn Alwen, a haven for cycling, mountain biking, walking and fishing in North Wales. You are also within easy reach of Conwy, Llandudno, Snowdonia, Angelsey and Chester.
