  • "Lovely getaway to totally switch off, so cosy and has everything you need."

    Lovely gifts awaiting us on check in, lovely attention to detail, quality towel bundle per person, dressing gowns, plenty of fire wood even though we brought our own. Comfy bed and bedding! Felt really safe and secure also. My husband struggles to be away from home, never been one for holidays but he said this was the first time he felt relaxed and comfortable. 5 stars all round!

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We are so glad you were able to relax and enjoy your break away. Property Owner

  • "This was our best holiday ever."

    The owners are REALLY nice and helpful. The extra touches like flowers made as feel very welcomed. The cottage was spotless, nothing to fault. We were well taken care of. Beautiful views, amazing local area and people. Restaurants recommended by the owners are worth going to - the food was so nice and fresh. There is however one huge downside... after 7 days of complete relaxation you find yourself going back home... or get out the hot tub - we absolutely loved our stay. We will definitely be back and thank you for everything.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We look forward to welcoming you back at The Old Workshop. Property Owner

  • "The Old Workshop is a beautiful property with great facilities."

    The sofa however is incredibly low and being an older person I found it very hard to stand up from. Otherwise it was faultless and as lovely as it’s brochure description. One other thing to mention was it said there was a pub 0.6 miles away but to get there would have involved walking a short way on a busy, windy road with no pavement so we didn’t feel it was safe to walk which was a little disappointing. Otherwise a great stay in a gorgeous property.

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. If you were to turn right out the gate there is another route which may have been easier for you. We have updated this in the information pack in property. Best wishes. Property Owner

  • "Disappointed to find dog faeces in the courtyard for four consecutive days not being attended to."

    We contacted the owner who informed us he was away but would have it dealt with. This was cleared away within twenty minutes. The next day we found there was another fouling which was not cleared away until the evening of our departure day. Whilst we did enjoy our stay we found that this marred our holiday. Sykes description of the holiday states no pets but obviously within the grounds someone had a dog. Looking forward to your thoughts and response.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. During the time of your stay we were on holiday and our own dog was being looked after by a family member who lives in a property on the grounds close to The Old Workshop, we are happy this was cleared up quickly for you but sorry some was missed. This is totally out of character for our old dog to "go" in this area, again please accept our apologies for this oversight. The Old Workshop and enclosed garden does not allow pets, and we do not allow the dog in to the property. Property Owner

  • "The Old Workshop is the most loveliest little house nestled in North Wales."

    The house is decorated so lovely and definitely has the wow factor as you walk in. The place was so clean and tidy. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. We had the most relaxing week for our mini moon. The house is central to many places and we explored lots of new areas of Wales we’d never been before.

  • "Me and my other half had the most amazing time at this gorgeous hidden gem!"

    The facilities were amazing. It defiantly has the ‘ wow factor’ when you first walk in. The attention to detail is seen throughout the whole property. Thank-you for the complimentary items and the gorgeous fresh flowers in the kitchen that just set the room off even more, was also a great touch! Everything we thought of was taken care of, and special thank-you to Richard who came quickly to assure us the log fire was working properly ( it was defiantly a user issue not the log burner... sorry for the late night call ) We had the most amazing and relaxing time and will defiantly be returning in the near future!

  • "The Old Workshop was even better than the photos."

    The accommodation was beautiful, and had some really nice touches like Welsh cakes, local marmalade and a bbq. Despite restrictions, the host was great, providing us local food options and a guide of what we could do in the area. We had a great time and it felt so luxurious and relaxing. We will definitely be back in the future. Thank you!

  • "Amazing stay."

    Everything was perfect and exceed my expectations. It was the nicest places I have ever stay at. The bed was so comfy, had all the amenities we needed and more and the hot tub and the log burner was an added bonus. The location was spot on and it was easy access to all the wonderful tourist attractions. Would 100% recommend staying here. I have stayed at so many Airbnb's and skyescottages but this place is just amazing and by far my favourite.

  • "We had a really wonderful week of luxury in this cottage - from the prosecco and other treats on arrival, to relaxing in the hot tub, we felt we were really well looked after and able to completely switch off."

    Everything in this property was really high-end (we especially loved the BBQ) and we were lacking nothing that we needed or wanted. Even though we weren't able to be welcomed in person due to social distancing, the host was fantastic in answering any questions that we had and communicating with us. We're already looking for when we can return - hopefully some time colder so we can make the most of the log-burner! Thoroughly recommend.

  • "The workshop barn is beautiful in terms of location, furnishings and comfort."

    The attention to detail to make our holiday as comfortable as possible was exceptional. The owners had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. From bath robes, to flowers, to the complimentary bottle of wine! The most significant concern we had before arriving related to the level of cleanliness of the property (in light of the current situation). We were very impressed with the depth and level of cleaning performed before we arrived. We were instantly reassured that the property was of the highest std of cleanliness and this allowed us to relax immediately and enjou the property instantly! Highly recommend this property and we would like to revisit again - as the property is one of the best we have stayed in. The only challenge will be, finding the availability, as the property is heavily booked up!! Diane and Chris

The property

Resting in a tranquil position just outside of the centre of Denbigh, The Old Workshop is a contemporary delight of a property, making a spectacular romantic retreat for a couple seeking a holiday home in Wales.

Offering a unique style and an idyllic setting, this workshop conversion is an abode you're sure to want to return to.

Enter through the electric gates and park up in your designated parking spot on the owner's drive before stepping inside to the wonder of the open-plan living space.

Boasting neutral hues and an elegant design, this is a base you won't want to leave; with the sleek and contemporary kitchen housing a good range of appliances to assist you in preparing a romantic meal, you can sit at the breakfast bar and toast to your holiday over the impressive composite stone worktop, before moving to the dining table to enjoy for an evening of wine and fine dining.

Spend some time relaxing on the sofa with the woodburning stove roaring in the winter months, observing the sparkling night sky from the floor-to-ceiling windows before heading up the open tread stairs to your sleeping spot.

The bedroom consists of a delightful king-size bed, with port windows and a glazed glass floor with low light window allowing an abundance of natural light to fill the room; take two steps down beneath the beams of the room to find a freestanding bath with an accompanying hand-held shower, offering the perfect way to relax after a day of excitement, or take a rinse in the en-suite shower room to refresh yourself for the day ahead.

Outside, the wonder of the property only continues, where you can find your own private patio holding a luxury hot tub, this cottage offers true tranquillity at any time of year.

Head out to explore the local town of Denbigh, where you will be greeted by enticing history in its castle, a good selection of shops and pubs and various events throughout the year including walking and beer festivals, the Denbigh Plum Festival and much more!

If you're looking for a day at the beach, venture out to Prestatyn or Llandudno, both holding their own unique experiences and friendly atmospheres, or visit Colwyn Bay for peaceful settings, Clywdian Range for walking, or Llandegla Moors for mountain biking.

In easy reach of many wonderful attractions, The Old Workshop is a true delight from which to base your next escape to Wales.
