  • "Loved the Butler’s flat."

    Plenty to do in the area. Will definitely be back as we think the area has a lot more to offer us and it was lovely to come back to the apartment.

  • "Comfortable, clean and well-furnished accommodation in a unique location and set within attractive grounds."

    I have stayed in both the Butler's and Cook's flats at this location over the last few months whilst working in the area and was equally happy with both. One small maintenance problem arose which was dealt with promptly and efficiently. Owners helpful and professional. Would recommend.

    Thanks so much Gill for your bookings and I’m so glad the apartments have provided you with a comfortable place to stay whilst you have been working in the area. Property Owner

    Everything was provided that we could have hoped for. Great to stay somewhere so peaceful, yet accessible to everywhere we wanted to go. Chester Zoo, Blue Planet, Cheshire Oaks and Llandegla Forest Park were easy all to reach from the flat. Had a lovely walk around the estate, felt privileged to be able to wander. Will return, thankyou. Tracey and Gary

  • "We had a lovely state at the Butler's Flat."

    It's in a great location, with lots to visit nearby. The flat is well decorated and kitted out, with a good sized dining kitchen and huge bedroom. We really appreciated the smart TV, but would have liked to have a teapot. The one downside was the shower, which is fed off the bath taps. The shower head is at a fixed point high up the wall: if the user is a short person, she has to wash under a faint and pressureless trickle of tepid falling water.

    Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I'll look for the teapot as there should be one in there, if it's gone walkabout we will sort that out, thank you for pointing it out. Regarding the shower, it is a handheld shower attached to the bath and so not a stand alone power shower which perhaps you are used to. If you found the hook too high perhaps you would have had an easier time by just holding it in your hand? Or enjoying a luxurious bath! We use the same water supply in the main house and there is always plenty of hot water, generated by the wood chip boiler. So glad the smart TV was useful! Property Owner

  • "A lovely stay, thank you very much."

    The grounds in particular are stunning. The flat was very clean and comfortable. The only suggestion I would make would be to provide a portable heater, or have the central heating turned up (if possible), given it was rather chilly in the flat, in particular the bedroom even with the thermostat turned up. Hope to visit it again soon!

    Thanks for a lovely review! I’m sorry you were a bit cold! The radiators are individually controlled but I expect you worked that out. It was a very cold week when you were here so I hope you used the real fire too as that makes the flat very cosy. We do have portable heaters that you could have borrowed if needed so I wish you had asked us during your stay! Another time! Property Owner

    The owners were very helpful when we first had to change our booking due to covid to making us welcome with the little extra's which are always nice. The property was central to some local places to visit and places to walk.

    So glad you were able to make it in the end! Property Owner

  • "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!

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.
