Gorgeous cosy cottage with hot tub in idyllic village location, near Denbigh and Mold. Relax at the cottage or walk to the pub, and enjoy activities and days out in the countryside and coast of North Wales.

Imagine soaking in the hot tub of this immaculately designed escape, which is set on a working farm and surrounded by the stunning countryside of North Wales. Whether you’re enjoying a couple’s getaway or a family treat, the style and luxury of this fabulous sanctuary will impress and delight.

Follow the private drive (remember to feed the donkeys some carrots as you pass) to the cottage, where everything has been designed for comfort and convenience. The high-ceilinged living space welcomes you with its modern-country style. At the far end, the kitchen has heaps of cupboard and worktop space, and after you’ve prepared your meal you can enjoy it at the breakfast bar before heading over to the lounge area. Here you can cwtch on the sofas, enjoying the glow of the log-effect electric fire while streaming your favourite TV shows. On the same level you’ll find two delectable bedrooms, one king-size with an en-suite bathroom that has a free-standing bath and separate shower, and the other a twin with an en-suite shower room. Throw open the double doors in the kitchen and head out to the landscaped garden, where you can grill on the gas BBQ and dine on the patio, soak up some rays on the sun terrace while admiring the views, or hop into the hot tub for a relaxing treat.

The cottage is on the edge of the friendly village of Lixwm, and the nearest pub is less than a mile away. Walk, cycle or ride in the beautiful countryside that surrounds you – try the Offas Dyke and Clwydian Way paths – or explore the traditional market towns of Mold, 8 miles, Denbigh, 11 miles, or Ruthin, 14 miles. Try some water sports at Prestatyn’s sandy beach, 14 miles, or explore the historic streets of Chester, 21 miles.

This is a lovely cottage on the owners farm which has been beautifully decorated and has a hot tub for relaxation and plenty of outdoor seating. For ideal comfort I would suggest it best suits two adults and two teenagers or children as the second bedroom is smaller. The two resident donkeys are a plus and enjoy their daily carrots!
