  • "We had a lovely week at the Old Mill."

    Cosy little bungalow in beautiful, peaceful setting. The sun terrace at the back was great for alfresco dining. Helen & Ian were brilliant hosts, on hand whenever you need them. They couldn't have been more helpful. Ian even helped with our car trouble, which meant we could enjoy our holiday without worrying about breaking down. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

  • "Very friendly welcome from Mr & Mrs Papworth, who were always willing to chat."

    It would be nice if the local village had a shop or a pub which was open, but maybe understandable under present circumstances. Ideal for location for walks and exploring. Weather not quite good enough for using the terrace but looks like it would be great in the summer!

  • "We had a great week."

    If your looking for somewhere for a walking holiday this is it. Didn't use the car all week. Very clean and tidy. Very comfortable beds. Helen and her husband are really helpful but leave you to enjoy your holiday.

  • "Great place to stay, nice quiet location, but still handy for Prestatyn supermarkets if needed, I was there for a walking break, and there was good access to many different walks."

    Helen and Ian are lovely people, great hosts, leave you to enjoy the accommodation as your own, whilst on hand for local information or assistance if required. I was invited to join them and some of their friends for an evening in their home for a ''home concert'', of accordion music, the accordion player was Andrew Waite !! This was certainly one break, with a difference, that I will remember. Thank you again Helen & Ian

  • "Lovely, cosy cottage in a picturesque location."

    It was nice to arrive to tea, milk and a couple of slices of bara brith! The cottage is very well equipped, immaculately clean and has a lovely outside area for eating in nice weather. The surrounding countryside was wonderful but sadly we found the roads around the vicinity of the cottage very busy (narrow country lanes with a lot of traffic on them; some drivers going far too quickly). The lane the cottage itself is on is extremely quiet and pretty. For walkers and horse-riders there's plenty of off-road walking available from the door of the cottage through rolling farmland; it was beautiful. Thank you Helen and Ian for a lovely stay!

    The loudest noise was the bleating of sheep and the lowing of the cattle in the surrounding fields. The host's were welcoming without treading on your privacy. The Old Mill is well situated for local attractions and also gives easy access to places further away.

The property

Trelawnyd 0.5 miles.

A charming, single-storey detached cottage with a crog loft, ideally located on the outskirts of Trelawnyd, on the route of the Pilgrims Way and Clwydian Way.

Cosy, comfortable and welcoming, The Old Mill is perfect for a quiet retreat or walking holiday in this beautiful part of North Wales.

Set mostly over the ground floor, this pleasant cottage enters into a kitchen which is conveniently laid out to provide all the basics needed for a memorable holiday, including a small breakfast bar, where you can sit and enjoy a coffee and the morning papers.

The sitting room and dining area is warmed by a woodburning stove, providing a lovely atmosphere to sit and relax after an energetic day exploring the numerous local trails that run from the doorstep of this lovely cottage.

Open tread stairs lead from here to a small crog loft where you can curl up with a book and relax.

The bathroom is equipped with a wet room shower with a wall seat and grab rail, and with ramp access into the cottage it allows the option for less mobile guests to stay in comfort.

Outside to the rear is a secluded decked patio from where you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area.

The surrounding area not only offers many walks and cycle routes, but an abundance of alternative activities are available, particularly with the ever popular seaside town of Prestatyn less than 5 miles away.

This delightful Trelawnyd cottage is the perfect retreat for a couple looking for a relaxing holiday in beautiful countryside.

About the location


Prestatyn 4 miles; Llandudno 18 miles; Chester 25 miles.

Trelawnyd is a small village nestled at the base of Gop Hill topped by the second highest man-made mound in Britain. It is close to the lovely North Wales coast, four miles from the seaside town of Prestatyn. There is easy access to local walks including Gop Hill, the North Wales Pilgrim’s Way, Offa’s Dyke, the Clwydian Way and Allt Y Craig. From these trails you can enjoy the fantastic scenery and vistas of the local area. The nearby village of Dyserth, 2.5 miles away was mentioned in the Domesday book of 1086. The parish church of St Bridget, with its interesting stained glass windows, is close to a famous waterfall with tea rooms next to it. The village also has two pubs serving food. Prestatyn, whose Blue Flag beach provides miles of golden sand, is ideal for bathing, water sports and sea fishing. Trelawnyd is the perfect base for touring the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, the Clwydian Hill Range, Victorian Llandudno, the Welsh Mountain Zoo or historic Chester with its wonderful shops and architecture. A fantastic area from which to explore the local countryside and amenities on offer along this North Wales coastline.
