Burton, Wrexham, North East Wales
Holly Cottage is situated in a peaceful area of the gorgeous north Wales countryside, one of two 5 Star cottages set

including the 13th Century Flint Castle that clings to the edge of the Dee Estuary, and the gigantic and well-preserved

places for you to soak up the unique atmosphere of the Borderlands and to get that shopping fix!
