Superb cottage that is dreamy sweet in superb location for quiet relaxing break and ideally located for walking / climbing the Clwydian Range of hills with spectacular views in area of outstanding natural beauty. Perfect for relaxing / romantic break. Owners are delightful and in hand to help, but entirely respect privacy and your own space. PerfecRead moret.

The cottage is very well appointed and comfortable. There is a large garden with three sitting out areas. Cows at the back! Kath and Sue were welcoming and helpful. There's a small community shop at the Crown pub in Lixwm. Lots of good walks around the area, e.g. Halkyn Mountain. We hope to go back.

Excellent location, out of the way and quiet. Beautiful garden. Immaculate decoration and extremely clean. Had got everything you need. Good size for 2-3 adults or a small family but a bit of a squeeze for 4 adults. Would of liked the dining chairs to be more comfortable, couldn't sit there for very long.

The cottage was wonderfully placed to allow us to spend time in a country setting whilst exploring Liverpool and Chester as both are only about an hour away . The owners were lovely and made us welcome with a basket of Bara Brith and Prosecco . The cottage was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean .

This is such a lovely cottage, really well equipped with many of the things I have previously had to take when self-catering (tea/coffee, cooking oil, toilet roll) and a very generous welcome basket. It is so peaceful, really is tucked away down a gravel track with only the owners cottage, but they were not in slightest interfering!
