Donadea Cottage description

Situated along a quiet lane just 1 mile from Caerwys which is located within the Clwydian Mountain Range AONB, Donadea is a delightful 19th century detached holiday cottage. It combines quaint charm alongside all the home comforts one expects from a holiday home. Additional features such as free wi-fi and games console make this ideal for families with children. The owner is a qualifed ’Bob Ross’ oil painting instructor and classes are available to book directly with the owner. The cottage has its own garden and patio area but guests can also enjoy the owner’s grounds which include 3 acres of orchard, kitchen garden and formal gardens. With stunning views over the Clwyds which can be glimpsed from the full length window that presides over the staircase, it is the perfect rural escape. The area offers some great walking and cycling opportunities with direct access from the doorstep onto public footpaths and for those that prefer to travel by horse back, there is also a local bridleway. Other activities available locally include golf and fishing or for the more adventurous, Bala Lake which is within an hour’s drive offers various water sports including sailing, kayaking and white water rafting. There are plenty of tea rooms, antique shops and farmers markets in the area and the craft and antique centre at Afonwen (2 miles) is worth a visit. The popular market town of Mold and Denbigh are both within 9 miles. Other places of interest within easy driving distance include Ruthin with its ruined castle (15 miles), Llangollen (24 miles), the Victorian seaside town of Llandudno (27 miles). Beach resorts including Talacre, Rhyl and Prestatyn are within a half-hour drive and Betws-y-Coed and Snowdonia National Park can be reached in just over an hour. Over the border into England, the historical city of Chester is just 30 minutes by car and Liverpool can be reached in 50 minutes. With so much to see and do in the area, Donadea cottage is the ideal base from which to explore what both sides of the Wales/England border has to offer. Beach 6 miles.
