Mrs C,


Groesfaen Bach farmhouse is located in wonderful countryside – less than 6 miles from the North Wales coast and just 1.5 miles from Offa’s Dyke National Trail. Set at the foot of the quiet Clwydian Range of hills that stretch from the coast all the way to Llangollen, it is one of only eight Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the whole of Wales.

Situated on a quiet, well kept working farm, this large self catering in North Wales is just 1 mile from the nearest shop in Caerwys and also 1 mile from the nearest pub / restaurant (Black Lion in Babell) which serves great food.
