Afonwen nestles in the beautiful Vale of Clwyd and in an area of Natural Outstanding Beauty and our cottage is probably the most looked after and quirky 2 up 2 down holiday cottage in the valley.

We have only decided to put our lovely cottage back up for rental after inquiries from last years customers to do so. Settled at the foot of the North Clwydian Hills and directly below Offas Dyke the area is a hive of beautiful walks right from your back door and a popular biking area both on road and off. The garage is available for safe stowage of bikes

We have a library of maps, and compass covering the local area and Snowdonia for your use, we only ask that you replace them when you have finished with them.

To the front of the cottage and through the gate you walk into a field occupied by pedigree sheep, and most days you can watch the local farmer training his dogs. In mid mornings and early evening you can see Buzzards in the sky and might even be lucky to see Red Kites, but not always.

Our cottage is special to us, so we try to make it home from home, leaving our nick knacks all in place. the cottage will suit both the serious and starter walkers and serious bikers or maybe just couples for a romantic get away and parents with a small child but not yet walking, hence our decision to leave all our ornaments in place and away from little fingers. You will have the Sky Sports package, BT Sports and Wi-Fi (we charge an extra £10 for this facility) and a spar bath as well as a lovely cottage garden to sit in on those clear nights The neighbours are wonderful.

The cottage is in the lovely village of Afonwen just 3 miles off Junction 31 on the A55 and well known for its Craft and Antiques Centre and the Pwyll Gwyn Pub just a five minute walk away that sells excellent food. Above the village is the smallest town in Wales, Caerwys, with all the facilities you will need including a pay and play nine hole golf course, trout fishing and the recently re-furbished Piccadilly Pub.

To the right and just 6 miles away is the market town of Mold that boasts the wonderful Theatre Clwyd, two theatres and a cinema and sponsored by Sir Anthony Hopkins, and have Wednesday and Saturday markets. To the left both Denbigh and the newest city in Wales St Asaph, Talaca beach is just a 20 minute ride away and the mountains of Snowdonia a 45 minute ride over the lovely Denbigh Moors. On a clear day from the ridges above all the high peaks in Snowdonia can be seen.

The Victorian sea side resorts of Rhyl and Llandudno, with the ice age Great Orme and owned by the Mostyn family, are a short ride along the A55 making the whole area a wonderful selection of areas to visit.

Chester the 4th most visited city in the UK behind London Bath and York, with its Roman heritage, museums, castle and the Roedee Race course, once a Roman harbour is just 20 miles away, Liverpool (The Beatles tour) and Manchester (United and City) just a 45 mile journey along the motorway network.

The whole area is steeped in history, Bronze Age, the Roman Occupation and WW2 secrets

We know you will have a wonderful time and hope you enjoy your stay whether your a first time visitor or a last years guest.
