  • "Great cottage as good as ever and we'd definitely stay again."

    Phil the owner was on site, always available and helpful. Kevin the cat made several welcome visits and made us feel at home.

  • "Another great stay at Plas Tirion Cottage."

    Very well equipped and Phil is a superb host. Always on hand but never intrusive. Such a peaceful setting and very comfortable place to relax and soak up the beautiful countryside.

  • "Brilliant. Property is located on Phil's beautiful 40 acre Horse farm."

    The farm itself is secure, clean with coastal views. Upon arriving we were met with Phil and a welcome basket containing a housekeeping folder and brochures of walks, locations and restaurants along with other goodies which were much appreciated. Phil himself offers a range of places to visit on the coast knowing about the local history and walks on site and off site. Phils very welcoming and allows you to meet his pets, horses and most importantly Kevin the cat. The hospitality made our stay ever more relaxing.

    Clean and comfortable, views across the estuary to the Wirral, plenty of walks from the cottage. Kids loved having Kevin the cat to visit. He's a real character!

  • "What a lovely cosy cottage this is."

    We arrived on a cold evening to a wood burner that the owner had kindly lit for our arrival. The cottage is situated on a working farm and that adds to it's appeal. It's very peaceful with great views. The owner is really nice and helpful, on hand if required and has clearly taken pride in the design and build and running of the cottage. From here you can easily reach many attractions in North Wales plus day trips to Liverpool. A real gem of a place.

  • "Had an absolutely lovely stay at Plas Tirion Cottage."

    Location ideal for day trips to llandudno, Conwy castle, Prestatyn, and Talacre bay. The farm was immaculate and Philip was always around for advice on places to visit. The cottage is better than the photos show, clean and cosy. We had a few cold November days so the underfloor heating and log burner was ideal when we came back from a cold day out. Kevin the cat was a frequent welcome visitor and loved curling up each night in front of the fire. We loved the views across the Dee, horses in the fields and the roaming chickens. We will definitely be booking this cottage again! It was great value for money!

    The cottage itself is really well appointed with everything you could need to have a great stay. The cottage was clean and modern with a great view out across the Welsh countryside!

  • "My Family and I really enjoyed our stay in the cottage."

    The location is fantastic, so quiet and safe for the children to play in. The horses and chickens are great to occupy the kids, and of course Kevin the cat! Phil was an excellent host, and very patient with my two boys who wanted to be in the stables every 5 mins (thanks Phil!). My only issue was the beds! Unfortunately the beds were uncomfortable. This isn’t a massive issue, nothing a mattress topper wouldn’t sort, but certainly something that needs looking at. It didn’t detract from putting on the log burner in the evening, or the lovely view out the back door across the farm and onto the coast line. Really enjoyed our stay.

  • "Just arrived back from a fantastic stay at Plas Tirion Cottage and can't wait to return!"

    We stayed here with our two boys aged 11 and 4 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage is situated in the most stunning surroundings with views of the estuary and horses on the farm. Phil made us feel really welcome from when we arrived to when we left and was really helpful with places to visit nearby. Kevin the cat was a delight and we had to talk the boys out of sneaking him home with us! The cottage itself is stunning and kept immaculate, beautiful features and furnishings make it a perfect place to stay. We visited many places nearby and would highly recommend Conwy Castle, Colwyn Bay Mountain Zoo and The lighthouse at Talacre beach to name a few. Can't wait to return.

    The cottage itself was beautiful, so clean and in such a lovely location. Phil literally was such an amazing host, nothing too much trouble and he was always on hand to make sure we were having a great time and were comfortable. Kevin the cat was such a welcome addition as we were all missing our two cats at home and Kevin would curl up next to us and sleep or want fussing which our sons were very happy to do! The only downside was we didn’t stay long enough! Thank you Phil and Kevin for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful home with us and we very much hope to see you again in the future. I’m recommending you to anyone and everyone, all I can say to anyone considering Plas Tirion Cottage- do it! You will have a wonderful time in a wonderful place and well looked after.

    The view of the coast in the distance was the perfect way to start a day and the peace and quiet in the evenings was almost surreal. The cottage itself is exceedingly clean, comfortable and well equipped. The log burner made for relaxed and peaceful evenings, with all the firewood and kindling you could need supplied. The shower is powerful and warm, the beds comfortable and the kitchen stocked with everything you need except food. The TV was surprisingly high quality, equipped with Freeview and a Blu-ray player. From here we managed to head to Snowdonia national park, Conwy castle and a beach I have forgotten the name of. I would recommend plas tirion cottage to anyone and everyone, by far this is one of the best places I have stayed.

    Our little boy enjoyed looking at the horses outside and meeting Kevin the cat! Phil the owner was friendly and left us to our own devices despite only being next door. You do need to drive to the nearest shop and pub which is in Holywell but this was not an issue for us. The website stated that the nearest pub was within an 8 minute walk but this was closed down. There was a table and chairs outside the cottage but it doesn't really have much of an outdoor area as it is within the main farm. Overall we had a really enjoyable stay.

A stunning detached cottage nestled within the grounds of the owners' grazing land and managed livery and stable blocks, just 1.5 miles from the Flintshire village of Mostyn on the Dee Estuary in North Wales.

Renovated to a high standard to maintain its original character, whilst adding modern and stylish fixtures and fittings throughout, this cottage offers a delightful luxury getaway for a couple or family.

Entering into an open plan living area with cosy seating set around a woodburning stove, you will want to sit and relax straight away.

The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, with granite worktops affording ample workspace to prepare a sumptuous home-cooked meal to be enjoyed around the dining table, or perhaps taken outside to eat alfresco on the courtyard, whilst enjoying views across fields to the Dee.

The ground floor family bathroom offers a walk-in shower room, with a large utility/drying room completing the accommodation.

Outside this delightful stone cottage is a large, private patio area close to the modern stable block, and the owners are happy to allow use of the stables, manege and grazing on request, and with the popular cross country riding tracks at Mostyn Farm Ride close by this is an ideal location for an equine holiday.
