  • "This was our first UK holiday with our dog and we were quite worried that “dog friendly” wouldn’t be all that friendly."

    Turns out, we needn’t have worried at all. Dianne and Jonny were so welcoming, helpful, and went out of their way to answer our questions - they even set up a little dog pool for our lad. The facilities were great, had literally everything we needed, and all of the bedding, towels, and soft furnishings felt new and lovely quality. Decor was amazing, kooky but stunning and we had everything we needed. Oh and the hot tub and (gas) BBQ - amazing additions!! The welcome pack (treats for us and the dog) was such a lovely added touch, as was the handwritten card. If we are ever in the area again, we’ll be staying here!! Only thing to be aware of - and the owners warned us about this - the garden area floor can get very hot if you get a sunny day! A little runner to lay out might be helpful and keep feet and paws safe.

    Thank you so much for the amazing review. That's a very good idea about a runner I will definitely look into it. Thanks. Property Owner

  • "Great little flat."

    It's right on the high street and you enter from the rear so really easy in terms of bringing up bags etc. There are metal steps up to the flat through a secure door. Really clean and decorated beautifully (as the pics show!) The bedding & towels smelt AMAZING! Only thing missing is maybe some flutes/wine glasses but tesco is literally across the rd. Gorgeous welcome pack on arrival, plenty of things like toilet roll, blue roll, washing up liquid etc. Carpets are really soft and rugs are beautiful. Beds comfy and blackout curtains in bedrooms help with a great night's sleep! Terrace is a little suntrap! All in all, would definitely recommend. Met the hosts too as they were decorating another property nearby, they were lovely and friendly & really to put effort and thought into the properties. Thanks for a great stay!

    Thank you for your lovely review, and thanks for being great guests. It was lovely to meet you all and Lola.. Glad you had a great stay at the flat. Property Owner

  • "We've stayed at the Funky Cottage over the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May."

    The pictures does not give a true account of how funky the flat is. From the moment we stepped in it felt like home :) The decor is amazing, the house was clean and tidy and very spacious. Even though there is no allocated parking spaced it was not a problem at all there was always a few empty spaces. There is plenty to do and go around the area. Kids enjoyed it a lot, specially finding all the games in the "treasure chest". The hot tub is a bonus! Definitely recommend!

    Thank you so much for this wonderful review. You were lovely guests and we are really pleased you all felt at home. We would love to have you stay again. Property Owner

  • "We really liked the Funky Flat."

    Its in the heart of Holywell with both Tesco's and the Greenfield Valley a short walk away. The flat is a funky oasis with all we needed. We did have some problems with the hot water system but the owner was really responsive and helpful in getting it sorted out.

    Thank you Neil for your lovely review. The new boiler is being fitted now. Sorry again for the inconvenience. Thank you for being wonderful guests, we hope to see all you again. Diane Property Owner

  • "The flat is definitely funky!"

    . The decor is great and very quirky with large rooms and comfortable beds. The main bedroom is huge and we enjoyed cosying up in the lounge in the evenings on comfortable sofas and Sky Glass TV. Location is good with plenty of shops, takeaways and pubs. It is easier to park at the rear of the flat where the entrance is and costs only £1.70 per day. We visited nearby Chester which has a great town centre and the local Green Heritage Walk was lovely with our dog. This would be an amazing base in the summer as there is a large terrace, hot tub, bbq and sun loungers.

  • "Where do I start?"

    Arrived last night to a fabulous property. The decor is quirky, classy and right up my street! Couldn't get a more central and has everything you need. Diane left us a handwritten note, a lovely welcome pack containing savoury goodies, water, cola and a chippy meal

The property

The Funky Flat is a quirky and unique, three-bedroom apartment resting in the heart of Holywell, a bustling market town in North Wales, thoughtfully set out for relaxation in mind.

Boasting nearby off-road parking space, an enclosed roof terrace, and a collection of tastefully-presented, vibrant interiors, this charming retreat makes an ideal base for a family or group of six friends looking for a refreshing, self-catered escape near the brilliant Clwydian Range And Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Ascend the rear staircase up to your new home-from-home, whereupon you will be immediately greeted by an impressive roof terrace, enclosed and housing sun loungers, outdoor dining furniture, and an indulgent hot tub!

Continue across the terrace to enter The Funky Flat, setting your belongings down in the hallway before you go on to explore the rest of your new abode.

On the first-floor, you will discover a well-equipped, galley-style kitchen, comprising all the appliances eager cooks will need to rustle up hearty, home-cooked meals, as well as an inviting sitting room, where you and your loved ones can kick back on the plush corner sofa or stylish armchair as you enjoy a film on the superb Sky Glass Smart TV.

In the evenings, an elegant bathroom awaits you when you fancy a soak amongst the bubbles or a refreshing shower, whilst three decadent bedrooms are sumptuously-decorated and ready to whisk you off to a night of well-earned rest.

If you can tear yourself from your lovely new home, set out to explore what Holywell and the surroundings have to offer.

The briefest of strolls will bring you to a wealth of independent pubs and eateries, such as The Boars Head, the Old Wine Vaults, Marmalade, and Kassidy’s Tea Room, whilst the Tesco Superstore sells homely essentials for you to stock up on throughout your stay.

During your time in town, be sure to stop by the historic site of St Winefride's Well & Shrine, enjoy a peaceful amble through the Pen Y Maes Woods, or travel back in time to the settings of Greenfield Mill and Basingwerk Abbey.

Further afield, jump in the car and head east to explore the full beauty of the Clwydian Range And Dee Valley, a magnificent landscape home to the must-see landmarks and attractions of Loggerheads Country Park, the Minera Lead Mines, and Vivod Mountain, as well as the picturesque community of Llangollen.

Enjoy the ultimate escape to North Wales when you choose The Funky Flat.

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.
