A stylish converted mill overlooking traditional gardens and a stream, perfectly located for exploring the rugged coastline of North Wales and the Cheshire countryside.
Escape to the country in this cosy romantic bolthole, tucked away in the grounds of the owner’s home. This north-east corner of Wales has something for everyone. If you’re looking for stunning views and the chance to fully switch off, then you’ll find spectacular country parks and dramatic mountain ranges to hike across. If it’s long, lazy days at the seaside you’re after, then the North Wales coast is just 16 miles away. For ancient history and fabulous shopping, journey to nearby Chester (16 miles).
The beautiful former mill has retained much of its original character and charm. The property is decorated in a country-cottage style, with an eclectic mix of homely accessories and subtle lighting to create a cosy ambience. The open-plan lounge/diner is the ideal place to snuggle up after a long walk. Crack open a bottle of gin and unwind on the plump sofa, warming your aching limbs in front of the wood burner-effect electric fire. Outside, there’s a private courtyard where you can fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco in the gorgeous Welsh sunshine.
Discover a plethora of walking routes within easy reach of the property. Wander through the woodland and over the heather-clad hills of Moel Famau Country Park, to climb to the summit of Moel Famau (9 miles). The route encompasses the Offa’s Dyke Path and the views from the top are incredible, across Snowdonia and a large part of North West England. You’ll find equally rewarding walks through Loggerheads Country Park (6 miles), which is set below the dramatic cliffs of the Alyn Valley. After a long walk, enjoy a picnic in the park’s Tea Gardens. Spend a day at the seaside at Talacre Beach (16 miles), where you’ll find mile upon mile of golden sand, as well as an 18th-century lighthouse.
