    The flat is in a very tranquil setting perfect for our first break for more than 14 years. The welcome pack gold stars and all the staff were so welcoming. We will go back for more. Thank you.

  • "The bed was very comfy, the wine, milk and biscuits were a lovely touch."

    One thing, however, that could have improved our stay were instructions on how to use the oven.

  • "Butler's Flat was a perfect place for our short break in North Wales."

    Being allowed to explore a family estate after a day out was a privilege not to be abused. The flat itself was immaculate and a mix of modern and traditional fittings. Cefn Park was an ideal location to view places and towns we hadn't seen for years. Archie and Philippa are the perfect hosts

  • "Stayed at Butler’s Flat for a relatively last minute 4 night break."

    The flat was just as described and Cefn Park was a very peaceful location. Lovely light and airy accommodation, however, it was very cold - thankfully we were able to light the fire each day, which helped to warm the lounge but still very cold in the other rooms. Facilities were very good, kitchen well equipped, powerful shower and large screen tv and free view were very welcome. The WiFi was terrible - access was via ‘access point’, which links via a wired connection, making it very slow, dropping out frequently, especially when being used by several WiFi connections. The flat does need some tlc in places - the ‘pillows’ on the bed were just material filled with a few lumps, couldn’t be used! And the mattress topper wasn’t large enough for the bed so there was a big drop at the top. We had to use cushions for pillows! All in all an enjoyable break, easy booking, great value!

  • "Great last minute find for a short break."

    Butlers Flat is very comfortable with nice views over Cefn park and beyond. Real log fire was a welcome treat after lovely walks around the estate. Lots of interesting info about the estate, seeing the Victorian kitchen was a bonus. Lovely place to stay would like to see it in spring and summer too.

About the location


Wrexham centre 2 miles; Chester 13 miles.

Situated in over 1000 acres of parkland, Cefn Park dates back to 1730, with the latest additions being built in 1910. Located on the edge of Wrexham, the largest town in North Wales, Cefn Park is also within driving distance of the historic city of Chester and many places of interest including Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a World Heritage Site. Steeped in family history linking back to Charles II and containing many artefacts from the Charge of the Light Brigade, Cefn Park in 2011 was featured on national TV and in newspapers due to the restoration of the original Victorian kitchen that had last been used during the Second World War. Today guided tours of the estate, which include a visit to the Victorian kitchen, can be enjoyed. The town of Wrexham offers a number of shops, pubs and restaurants, whilst nearby are the National Trust owned Erddig and Chirk Castle, which are well worth a visit. Chester, situated just into England offers something for everyone. From the Roman walls and amphitheatre, the wonderful Tudor ‘Rows’ and the beautiful medieval church, to the racecourse, famous zoo and walks along the River Dee, Chester has it all. Back into Wales, the stunning Snowdonia National Park is within driving distance. An ideal location for exploring North Wales, Cheshire, Shropshire, or even the island of Anglesey.
