The property

Mertyn Crewe, a 19th century farm building, has been lovingly restored as it overlooks the River Dee towards the city of Liverpool, with the North Wales market town of Holywell just two miles away.

With the marvellous North Wales Coast in close proximity, make this welcoming retreat the base for a break with your loved ones.

The property's character is apparent from the moment you arrive; the quarry tiled flooring and original bakery features welcome you and lead you into the kitchen.

Your meals can be rustled up in this stunning layout, set with charming cream-coloured units, rustic wooden worktops, a range cooker and a stunning breakfast bar to enjoy your morning cup of tea at.

The exposed beams lead you into the first sitting room, an alluring setup with leather sofas, a TV and a period woodburner to warm you up on the cooler evenings.

The social dining room, featuring a lovely decorative fireplace, separates the two sitting rooms, with the second relaxing spot boasting a comfortable corner sofa and an antique open fireplace.

At the top of the stairs cosily rests a peaceful snug area with two armchairs, perfect to read a good book away from the hustle and bustle.

Just off the landing sits a contrasting modern bathroom, an all-white suite with the choice of a bath and a separate shower cubicle.

From here you will find three of Mertyn Crewe's bedrooms, two of which benefit from luscious super king-size beds, one of which is zip and link and can be a twin bed on request, while one offers a standard king-size, also benefiting from being zip and link, all are decorated delightfully to ensure a comforting resting space.

The fourth bedroom is a calming and private place to get your rest, as it is accessed from an external set of stone steps, it also provides a modern en-suite shower room - perfect to get some peace and quiet.

Step out onto the serene garden to truly admire this riverside location, a well-maintained lawn is partnered with a wonderful patio area placed perfectly for admiring the River Dee flowing nearby, as well as the far-reaching views across to the city of Liverpool.

The market town of Holywell is well-stocked and hosts the historic St Winefride's Well which the town was named after.

This is a superb base for exploring the North Wales coast, nearby you can visit Prestatyn, while further afield are Conwy and Llandudno which promise unforgettable trips.

Also easily reachable are the city of Chester and the glorious Snowdonia National Park for outdoor activities.

A heart-warming retreat to be enjoyed all-year-round.

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.
