    We had a lovely holiday at this property. There were lots of games provided and plenty of space for young energetic children to let off steam.

The property

This immaculately-presented, spacious detached house lies on the outskirts of Penyffordd village, between Chester, Mold and Wrexham, in this delightful corner of Flintshire.

Luxuriously appointed throughout to provide stylish, quality accommodation for family and friends, this cottage is an ideal destination to get together and enjoy each other's company.

As soon as you walk into this impressive, double-fronted property you will notice the superb fixtures and fittings that can be seen throughout.

The kitchen offers a central area to sit and socialise with granite worktops and breakfast island, providing ample work surface to prepare a fantastic spread for your guests whilst they settle around the breakfast table, or relax in the comfy seated area situated just off the kitchen with its full-length windows and warming woodburning stove.

Meals can then be served in the formal dining room with parquet flooring, which again offers additional comfy seating with a woodburning stove to provide additional atmosphere.

The main, bright and airy sitting room has an atrium ceiling and views over the fields, along with doors leading onto a large patio, adjacent to a study area with paino and children's play area.

There’s also a separate drinks preparation area to enjoy in the evening after a busy day exploring the area, along with a boot/drying room for those essentials and a separate laundry room.

There is a ground floor super king-size double bedroom, in addition to the four bedrooms on the first floor, with a twin, another super king-size double and two king-size rooms boasting en-suite facilities, and completing the property are a bathroom and shower room.

In an external building is a games room, with table tennis, pool and football tables, dart boards for both adults and children (please bring own darts) and a TV with beanbags and bar stools where you can compete on the Wii, watch a good movie, or enjoy music through the Bluetooth speaker system.

The gardens wrap around the cottage offering sun traps to settle in with a good book, or perhaps enjoy an alfresco meal freshly prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.

With the nearest pubs and coffee bar only four minutes’ walk you may prefer to eat out of course, before coming back to this fantastic cottage to relax with your loved ones.

Your stay at The Oaks opens up access to excellent walking and cycling directly from the house, and offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy, seek and explore a large area of North Wales and the North West of England.

Offering plenty of space for everyone, this stylish accommodation awaits you, at any time of the year.

About the location

PENYFFORDD

Chester 10 miles.

The pretty village of Penyffordd lies 10 miles west of Chester, between Mold and Wrexham, in Flintshire. Penyffordd, which means ‘head of the road’, is a thriving community with an active village hall, a popular tennis club that welcomes guests, a children’s park, a well-established bowling club and a golf driving range. The village is also home to two excellent pubs with fantastic reputations and lively atmospheres, as well as a selection of traditional shops, including a butcher, takeaway, Post Office and a chemist. The Wat’s Dyke Heritage Trail leads through the village connecting Holywell with Llanymynech in Powys creating a 60 mile long trail through some stunning Welsh countryside. Also Penyffordd is serviced by a railway station connecting the village to Liverpool, Wrexham and beyond, together with an excellent bus service. A four mile drive away is the village of Hawarden, where guided tours of the historic Gladstone Residential Library can be enjoyed, and also in the village are a farm shop and cafe, pubs and restaurants. Six miles away you will find the bustling market town of Mold, which has a regular market, a selection of shops, some good pubs and of course Theatr Clwyd, the National Theatre for Wales. The city of Chester is just 10 miles away, with its historic buildings, riverside walks, racecourse, excellent shopping and wonderful zoo. Also the market towns of Llangollen and Ruthin open up a wealth of opportunity to explore and enjoy, both less than 19 miles away. Mountain bikers should head to Llandedla Forest, just 12 miles away, for walkers there's the Black Grouse walk, and there's many golf courses in the area. Penyffordd is a superb touring base for North Wales, Cheshire, Wirral, Liverpool and Manchester.
