  • "Cute little cottage."

    Friendly and obliging hosts. Easy access to the nearby town of Mold, and all major supermarkets and stores. Our little Staffy was most welcome & had plenty of grassy space (on her lead) to walk around and enjoy the country smells. Pretty surrounding countryside. Ideal location for travelling around North Wales, Chester, Liverpool & Manchester. Highly recommended.

  • "Very rural location."

    very friendly owners. Pub food was excellent especially Sunday lunch. Easy access to major touristy places. Local town of Mold had all facilities needed regards shopping. Only thing really missing from cottage was access to laundry facilities. Great stay, dogs loved it.

  • "Ideal accommodation whilst we waited to move into our new home."

    The best part was the food in its traditional pub. The homemade steak pie is one of the tastiest I've tried anywhere and the menu prices are very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the food and the portion sizes. Richard and his daughter Karen who run the Butchers Arms are very sociable, friendly and accommodating without intruding. The locals we met were all friendly. I cannot recommend the Butchers Arms highly enough both for accommodation and even more so for its food.

    Lovely and peaceful to return to and an excellent meal in the pub. Karen couldn't have been more helpful, and we will definitely return when we visit again.

  • "We had a very pleasant week at the Butchers Arms."

    The cottage was nice and cosy, and well equipped with everything you would need if you wanted to self cater. It is in a great location for visiting the area, but is also rural and very peaceful, with no noise issues from being attached to the pub. Given 4/5 for cleanliness as overall very good, but there were a couple of things that could of been better, although we manage holiday accommodation so have very high standards!
