Quirky cottage sleeping 2+2 in a village location, midway between Colwyn Bay and Chester. Walk to the pub, enjoy days out in North Wales, Cheshire and Snowdonia National Park or just relax at this lovely property.

Nestled in the rural foothills of the Clwydian Range, this quirky cottage is the perfect escape for keen walkers on both two and four legs. Sleeping three, it is cosy and inviting with a welcoming wood burner, rural views and a private garden for BBQs and busy paws. Spend your days splashing in the surf at one of the local dog-friendly beaches, taking on the dramatic summits of the Clwydian Range or browsing the street market of Mold (8 miles) before grabbing a bite to eat in one of the local pubs.

Tastefully finished to provide a stylish blend of old and new, this charming cottage is a homely bolthole for couples, families and canine companions. A handy downstairs shower room is ideal for washing off sandy paws after beach walks. Cook up a storm in the light and airy kitchen, which opens onto the garden through a stable door, before eating in the separate dining room. At the end of a long day, fire up the wood burner and settle in for a relaxing evening of games or films with loved ones while your faithful friend snoozes happily at your feet. A king-size and a twin room await when you’re ready for bed. On warm evenings, the private garden is the perfect setting for tasty BBQs with the pup.

In an idyllic location halfway between the pretty seaside town of Colwyn Bay (24.5 miles) and the beautiful walled city of Chester (18.5 miles), this property offers the best of both worlds. Set off on memorable adventures with your faithful friend in tow as you take on the Clwydian Range to discover its rich wildlife and historic villages or head to Snowdonia National Park (30 miles) for challenging climbs with breathtaking views. With plenty to do, take a ride on a steam train, visit the famous Chester Zoo (21 miles), sample culinary delights at one of the city’s independent restaurants or take a horse-drawn canal trip at Llangollen Wharf (22.5 miles).

On the edge of a small village, so plenty of owls hooting at night and if you're lucky you might see a visiting fox/badger.
