About the location


Holywell 5.5 miles; Chester 20 miles; Llandudno 32 miles.

Rhes-y-Cae is a quiet, rural village located in an SSSI area (Site of Special Scientific Interest) on the slopes of Halkyn Mountain, also a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The whole area is renowned for its wonderful panoramic views, with the Clwydian Hills and Offa’s Dyke Pathway close by, offering an abundance of scenic walks, cycling and mountain bike trails, while there are also several golf courses nearby. Loggerheads Country Park with its visitor centre offers the opportunity for glimpsing local wildlife, whilst walking along the Leete Pathway on the banks of the River Alyn. The nearby small town of Holywell - the Lourdes of Wales - takes its name from a well surrounded by a chapel, which has been a site of pilgrimage since 660. Historic Chester, within easy driving distance, offers ample opportunities for sightseeing and shopping on the famous “Rows”, while many coastal resorts including Conwy and Llandudno with its beach and pier, are easily accessible. Rhes-y-Cae is a perfect base for exploring the whole of North Wales, the Snowdonia National Park and beyond.
