Bach y Graig Farmhouse, Vale of Clwyd,
North East Wales
This lovely self-catering cottage is in an historic farmhouse situated in the Vale of Clwyd, centrally situated for visiting the numerous attractions of North Wales, including the mountains of Snowdonia and the beautiful Welsh coast.
The cottage is in a self-contained wing of a grade 2 listed building, nestling in stunning countryside in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The picturesque Clwydian Range with its tall undulating peaks, dotted with heather and Iron Age hillforts provides superb walking opportunities where you can take in gorgeous views of the Vale of Clwyd, Snowdonia, Anglesey and the Welsh coast if visibility allows. The Range also provides a chance to explore by bicycle or on horseback, so the cottage is great for a holiday with lots of activity. Close by this Welsh self-catering 5 star cottage is Loggerheads Country Park, while on the Denbigh Moors, Llyn Brenig, the largest reservoir supplying Wales, is famous for fly fishing and water sports.
The cottage is close to the market town of Denbigh, with its castle, quaint narrow streets and an abundance of shops providing good opportunities for browsing. An equal distance away is St Asaph - a town with the smallest cathedral in the country and an annual music festival every September. There are many more sights to explore within an hour of this lovely holiday home - Bodnant Gardens and the resort town of Llandudno are within easy reach. Or visit Conwy where you can take a seat on the quayside, visit the renowned castle or the smallest house. The glorious Vale of Conwy is one of the many picturesque drives you can enjoy from the cottage - up to the bustling town of Llanrwst, Betws y Coed, from where you can stock up on traditional woodlen gifts at the Trefriw woollen Mill. Further afield is Chester - where you can walk the historic city walls, take a river boat or browse the many antique shops. The cottage is just an hour's drive from Snowdonia, and Anglesey and the coast is also lovely day out - along the coast, through mountains and across moors.
The village of Llangollen is the home of the International Eisteddfod annual festival and the famed narrow gauge railway. Why not take this lovely cottage at Christmas when the steam train has Father Christmas along for the ride?
