“Front Cottage is a great base to visit North Wales.”

It is our 3rd visit to Fron Cottage and we have 2 huskies who also come. Th cottage is perfect, always clean and has a lovely sun room leading to an enclosed garden for the dogs to roam. There is a local park 5 minutes walk away and Heritage Park a walk through the town or car ride away. North Wales' coast town's are all a short drive or bus ride away. All in all a lovely cottage that I would recommend to everyone.

This cottage is perfect for a couple seeking a romantic escape or simply a base for exploring the area.
Fron Cottage has some lovely features including hand-crafted latch and brace doors, exposed brick and stonework and a lovely fireplace in the sitting room.
The cottage provides spacious and comfortable accommodation with a welcoming sitting room, with corner sofa and warming antique woodburner to cosy up in front of on those cooler evenings.
The kitchen is nicely appointed, extending to a lovely conservatory with dining table and chairs, an ideal sunny spot for a leisurely breakfast or romantic supper by candlelight, and the addition of a sofa creates a nice chilled-out area to relax and enjoy that book!
Finishing off the lovely accommodation is the bedroom which has a king-size bed and plenty of built-in wardrobe space.
Outside is an enclosed front paved patio with pretty beds and to the side a lovely enclosed paved courtyard garden with planted borders, sitting areas, garden furniture, a barbecue and a chiminea, all ideal for some alfresco dining.

About the location
Mold 9 miles; Prestatyn 10 miles; Chester 18 miles.
The market town of Holywell in North Wales takes its name from the town’s most famous attraction, the 7th century St Winefride’s Well, one of the Seven Wonders of Wales. Holywell boasts over 60 listed buildings, with a variety of late Georgian and Victorian buildings on offer, along with a pedestrianised shopping centre, pubs, restaurants and an open-air market every Thursday. Just one mile away are the 12th century ruins of Basingwerk Abbey within the grounds of the Greenfield Valley Heritage Park, with its museum. There are many lovely walking routes in the area, including the open common area at Halkyn Mountain, Pennant Way, Offa’s Dyke and The Welsh Coastal Path. Within driving distance is the pretty Market town of Mold, which holds an outdoor market on a Wednesday and Saturday. The historic city of Chester, with its famous Rows, Roman Walls, racecourse, zoo, shops and restaurants is just over the border in England. The beautiful Welsh Coast is easily reached with the little seaside village and beach of Talacre only a short drive away. Prestatyn, Rhyl, and of course Llandudno are also easily accessible, together with the majestic mountains of Snowdonia. There are also some beautiful gardens to visit, Ness on the Wirral, and Bodnant Gardens in Snowdonia to name just two.
