The property

Bodfari 2 miles. A delightful, spacious, detached barn conversion, next to the owners' home, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on Offa's Dyke footpath, overlooking the Vale of Clwyd, near Denbigh, in North Wales.

This charming Bodfari cottage offers light, airy and spacious ground floor accommodation, with a superb, open plan living area with a lovely woodburner and two sofabeds to provide flexible sleeping for a family or group of friends.

Also ideal as a romantic retreat for two, this Bodfari cottage has access to a private orchard and cottage garden at the rear, with a choice of seating areas where you can sit and enjoy the Clwyd Valley views, or look across towards the Marble Church at Bodelwyddan and beyond to Llandudno bay and the Great Orme.

This cottage near Bodfari is set against the famous Offa's Dyke trail which stretches 177 miles from Prestatyn to Chepstow, and provides a fantastic base for walkers and mountain bikers to explore the region, any time of year.

About the location


Denbigh 4 miles; Mold 12 miles; Chester 25 miles.

The small village of Bodfari is peacefully located in the lovely Vale of Clwyd, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, beneath the imposing Clwydian Hill Range. Steeped in history, the village has taken on many roles, such as a Celtic camp in 500 BC and a Roman encampment, while the original Church of St Stephen pre-dates the Norman Conquest. Today, this pleasant village is home to a pottery gallery, whilst the surrounding area boasts a range of good country pubs and eateries. The Offa's Dyke Pathway is easily accessible and the ancient market town of Denbigh, with its celebrated 13th century castle and pretty streets littered with shops, pubs and restaurants, is just 4 miles away. Endless, beautiful countryside surrounds this lovely area, which offers excellent walking, cycling, fishing, and nature and bird watching opportunities. This is a wonderful base from which to explore the whole of North Wales and the Roman City of Chester.
