Set on a family working farm and surrounded by 200 acres of fertile farmland, this St Asaph accommodation enjoys undisturbed views over stunning Vale of Clwyd countryside. The farmhouse shares the building with the owners own property (So it is semi detcahed). Built in 1567, it is the first brick built building in Wales and a delightful footpath on the owner’s land leads you through one of Wales’ oldest documented woodlands.
Prepare to be inspired by this charming farmhouse cottage and its wonderful surroundings. It is a great base to explore North Wales and beyond, with Offa’s Dyke Path and the historical city of Chester to the east, the wonderful Welsh coast to the north, Snowdonia to the west and many historic Welsh market towns to the south.
The quaint village of Tremeirchion is just 2 miles away with a village pub that serves good food. St Asaph (Llanelwy in Welsh) offers a wider range of amenities just 5 miles away and is also home to a cathedral which gives it its city status. Con Amici (4 miles) and White Horse in Llandyrnog (7 miles) are also recommended for their food. Amongst the best attractions in the area is the Sea Life Centre in Rhyl, Bodnant National Trust Gardens and, for the bargain hunter, Tweedmill factory outlet just 2 miles down the road.

At the mouth of the valley is the bustling resorts of Rhyl and Prestatyn with miles of sandy beaches, where you can also join the All Wales Coast Path. There are numerous castles nearby, including Bodelwyddan Castle from Victorian times and 12th Century castles at Denbigh, Rhuddlan and Conwy.

Great propertyMr Nalin Parmar - 26th April 2018
Amazing! A real working Dairy farm, a historic home, with furnishings, and artifacts that fit the atmosphere. All was clean, in wonderful condition and a fully stocked kitchen with all that was needed. All the local pubs were friendly and inviting. Visit the nearby Castles, all very close. You will need a car to explore. The roads are narrow, but charming, Meadows dotted with sheep everywhere. Everything was great! Gail from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. - 6th November 2017
