The Granary Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Set in a peaceful location less than two miles from the village of Whitford is this charming barn conversion. At only four miles from bustling Holywell, the property has been lovingly restored to a high standard and decorated with both charm and style to offer well-equipped accommodation. With two comfortable bedrooms, a fitted kitchen, galleried dining hall and a sitting room with flame effect electric fire, this cosy property is ideal for a small group of friends of a family. There is also a rear patio and front lawned garden, both with seating. The property is well positioned in relation to the town and the local amenities and activities of the area.

Situated in stunning walking country near the Clwydian Hills, the lovely village of Whitford offers a wide range of activities. With a number of golf courses - including Pennant Park, which boasts a magnificent club-house and far reaching views over the River Dee – this area is very popular amongst fans of the sport. Further down the coast, visitors can enjoy a trip to Winefride's Well, one of the Seven Wonders of Wales – situated in nearby Holywell, in addition to the remains of the 12th Century Basingwerk Abbey. Just a 10 minute drive away are numerous sandy beaches whilst the area is of particular interest to wildlife enthusiasts due to the dunes of nearby Talacre beach - an RSPB recommended watch area. Also within driving distance is the bustling market town of Mold – full of picturesque buildings, shops, pubs and a nationally renowned theatre.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Mr Dean
November 2015
Our first booking through Sykes, having used other companies previously: we will be back! Cottage owner was very welcoming, photographs do not do cottage justice, there is more room than the photographs suggest.
Mrs Ball
December 2015
The Granary had everything you could need away from home. The cottage was cosy, warm private. Everything was great.
Mr Pickering
September 2015
The Granary is a wonderful cottage - the pictures don't do it justice. It's spacious, well equipped, comfortable and situated superbly for exploring all of North Wales. It was dog friendly, with an enclosed rear garden and superb walks literally on the doorstep. We would highly recommend The Granary!
Mrs Christine
September 2015
The house was extremely comfortable and the owners were really helpful and friendly. Everything seemed to have been thought of, with a very informative folder of information for all eventualities.
Mr Walker
April 2015
Thoroughly enjoyed this holiday. The cottage was absolutely gorgeous and set in a very peaceful and relaxing area. Good walks available close by for our dog.
Mrs Hughes
June 2015
The Granary is so big, clean and comfortable, and the owners were very friendly. The gardens were great, in the morning you can have coffee in the back, in the sun, and in the evening you can have a glass of wine in the front, in the sun. Whatever your taste or age you could find a book to read. Our dog also really had great time as it was very dog friendly.
Mrs Bell
May 2015
Everything in The Granary was just perfect. We had a lovely peaceful holiday. Also it was situated perfectly for touring around and there were beautiful walks on the doorstep. Overall you could not wish for a better holiday.
Mr Sumner
April 2015
Fantastic cottage, everything and more you could need. Ideally situated close to the A55 and for loads of walks.
Mrs Heseltine
March 2015
Usability of the property for four adults was excellent, and there were facilities for our dog as well. The property is easily accessed from the A55 so excellent for getting around by car in North Wales. Many walks in the area as well. Will go there again if possible.
Mr Douglas
April 2014
Beautiful location, gorgeous cottage.
Mr Lowe
October 2014
A home from home which was very cosy and well equipped. The washing machine and dishwasher was a plus. The beds were very comfy. All in all a very lovely cottage.
September 2014
We had a lovely time at The Granary. The cottage is very spacious, comfortable and equipped with everything you need. It is also well located and a perfect base to explore the area.
Mrs Moore
November 2014
An exceptionally high standard property, fantastic family home with everything you need. Would definitely go again.
Ms Richardson
June 2014
The Granary was a lovely welcoming home away from home. Each night we'd return and settled in to it's familiar warmth and cosiness. Our hosts were delightful and especially helpful when it came to recommending nearby places visit and places to eat.
Mr Carling
May 2014
The cottage was so well equipped, clean and beautifully maintained. It was cosy (beginning of the week was cold, wet and windy!) as well. The owners were so kind and nothing was too much trouble.
Mrs Beasley
October 2013
Beautiful cottage, tastefully decorated with everything you need for a restful holiday. The little back garden is secure so ideal to sit out with the dogs without worrying about them getting out. Lots of walks on the doorstep with some interesting sights.
Miss Smith
September 2013
Accommodation very spacious and well equipped.
Mr Chapman
October 2013
We echo what a lot of others have said in the past, in that the pictures in the brochure do not do it justice. Also the hosts were exceptional and very very friendly. It was ideal for us as we were visiting friends who had moved to North Wales. It is a great place to stay to base yourselves for some fantastic places to visit in North Wales and the English border (such as Chester). This is one place that we would come back to.
Mrs Astbury
April 2013
Loved the peace and quiet, it was so relaxing and a 'home from home' - couldn't ask for anything better! Would highly recommend staying there, thank you.
Mr Januszek
September 2013
Good location, and well thought out layout of conversion. Ground floor bedroom with en-suite excellent for 84 year old unable to climb stairs without a struggle. Rear garden well fenced off to contain any pets at the property.
Mr Edwards
May 2013
A beautiful cottage which made our stay a very relaxing one. The location of The Granary is great for exploring North Wales, with excellent walks on the doorstep.
Dr Naylor
August 2013
A stunning cottage presented to a very high standard. We were given a warm and friendly welcome and provided with all the extras and local information we needed.
Dr Dunn
July 2013
This was a comfortable cottage in peaceful surroundings with a beautiful view of the countryside. The dogs were welcomed rather than tolerated. This was our first family holiday and may not be our last!
Mr Kelland
February 2013
This is an excellent property, a real home from home.
Mr Tromans
August 2013
This property is decorated to a high standard, but remains very cosy, comfortable and welcoming. It is in a fantastic, secluded location, with only the owners' farmhouse nearby and has surprising views to Moel Famau. I would definitely go back and would recommend to others. The area around it is beautiful and is the perfect location for exploring the North Wales coast, Snowdonia and the Marches.
Mrs May
June 2013
This property has been renovated to an exceedingly high standard. The owners are helpful, kind and friendly and are on hand if needed. The area is well maintained, everywhere is clean and the people friendly. There is good access to major roads that make sightseeing a doddle and the country lanes offer endless opportunities to find hidden gems to explore.
Mr Decker
May 2013
We really enjoyed our holiday. A lovely Cottage that has everything you need.Very pleasant and friendly owners.It,s a very good starting point to explore North Wales and many nature Trails nearby. We will definitely come back.
Mr Kilham
September 2012
This was an excellent cottage for a holiday with dogs as the floors were tiled and there was an enclosed area for them to go outside. It was an ideal location to explore the whole of North Wales.
Mrs Woodcock
June 2013
The Granary offers you home-from-home. The hosts were welcoming and went the extra mile to make sure you had everything you needed. If you are looking for 5 star accommodation with beautiful surroundings then The Granary is for you. The photos don't do justice to the property, we will definitely be returning.
Mrs Sheehy
July 2012
I liked the property very much and it was a very nice location. The property was also in a good place for accessing places of interest.
Miss Owen
September 2012
The property was outstanding and the owners were very friendly and very dog friendly. The area was superb. The Granary has everything you need to enjoy your holiday and lots of extras that you do not always find.
Mrs Reid
July 2011
The cottage was an absolute delight and it was a pleasure to return back there each day.
Mrs Lockwood
September 2011
We loved the peace quiet, the owners were friendly and helpful and the neighbours were all lovely too!
Mr Rayner
October 2012
Excellent condition, everything you need, everything worked. Very pleasant owners who were always there if you needed them but didn't intrude.
Mr Smith
September 2011
The charm and location of the property was perfect with peace and solitude if wanted but not too far from a good country town for your supplies. It is quite close to many tourist attractions, such as Snowdonia National Park which is within 1 hours drive and Rhyl and Prestatyn just a few minutes away. Walking and the views are really beautiful.
Mrs Tobin
September 2011
The cottage was lovely and a great base for Chester and Snowdonia. There are good dog walks and lovely scenery on the doorstep. A really comfortable bed made the cottage really cosy. We had a warm welcome from the owner.
Ms Ede
September 2011
This was a superior cottage. Spacious and comfortable in a lovely quiet location. It was well positioned for a truly wonderful hill-walking holiday, and an excellent place to wind down and relax after a day in the surrounding hills. I also love the Sykes website, it really is easy to use, and leaves similar websites standing.
Mr Punter
August 2011
We enjoyed that the location allowed us to explore the wonders of the surrounding area. The children particularly liked the castles and beaches.
Mrs Pfeifer
July 2011
Very friendly hosts, excellent base to explore North Wales and great walks around! Very well equipped and very clean! We wish to come back soon!
Mrs Young
July 2011
The Granary was fantastic, the owners were very friendly and helpful and the area was central to lots of places of interest. We would certainly go to the Granary again as we enjoyed our stay there very much.
Miss Lambert
March 2011
This is our second visit to The Granary and it won't be our last. It is a real home from home and the owners always make you feel welcome, like your an old friend. We love the location of The Granary and the surrounding countryside - it's the perfect break after the grind of a working week - you can't help but relax here.
Mr Hopkins
November 2010
The Granary was spacious and comfortable. It is well placed for exploring North Wales and the owner got the right balance between leaving us to ourselves and helpfulness. My wife and I together with our son and the dog thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Harris
May 2010
Excellent accommodation and beautiful surroundings.
Mr Scott
September 2010
The boys (8 5) loved The Granary. Garden is child friendly. They could ride their bikes on the gravel and adjacent bridleway. Very quiet but also very close to A55 so quick to get to many places.
Mr Hanson
June 2010
Everything; the barn was converted to a high standard above any rating. A warm welcome by the owners and the Welsh people were so helpful, plus the sun shone all week.
Mr Cooper

Miss Lambert
March 2010
Excellent location - fantastic property, a real home from home. Great property for children and dog walking. We all had a wonderful time, including the dog who thought she was in heaven with all the walks right on our doorstep. It was the perfect location to get away. The cottage itself was beautiful, furnished and decorated to a high standard. Owners very hospitable and friendly. We'll definitely be back!! :-)
Mrs Tinsley
July 2009
The cottage was stunning! The owners were very friendly, cakes and tea etc on arrival, much appreciated and a nice welcoming touch. The location was perfect for sight seeing or local walks, of which there were lots, well sign posted.
Mr Fletcher
August 2009
Every appliance was new, and all were working correctly. Owners left a wonderful welcoming pack, and were helpful.
Mr Wrigley
September 2009
The owners have done an outstanding job of refurbishing the Granary. The bathroom and en-suite were beautiful and the kitchen had also been fitted out to a very high standard. In all it exceeded our expectations in every way,
Mrs Baker
May 2009
Helpful friendly owner who nonetheless kept a low profile! Really useful that essential supplies - tea, milk, cakes - were available on arrival.
Mr Nye
August 2009
The welcome at the cottage was great, and the books with local info and photos of the area compiled by the owners were very helpful. The views were very good and the view from the Roman lighthouse at the top of the hill was spectacular.
Mr Waugh

The variety of things to do from relaxing on a beach to hiking up a mountain to shopping in Chester.
Dr Guy
August 2009
The property is in a very pleasant rural area, but close to all amenities needed. Safe enclosed outdoor area for my dog. The property is a well executed barn conversion. Also the owners were very helpful and friendly.

Mr Burns
August 2009
We had a brilliant holiday, weather was great! Owners of The Granary were lovely and helpful and the cottage was just beautiful. Couldn't have asked anything better from our holiday.
January 2014
We traveled to Wales with my husband during one of his business trips and we spent a week at this pretty little cottage surrounded by rolling hills and sheep :-) The host is lovely, warm and extremely helpful! She made sure we had some Welsh treats in the cottage too. The Cottage itself is very comfortable and homely and has all you need for a long or short stay. The internet was up and down during our stay but I am sure the host will take care of this at some stage. The cottage is not within walking distance to shops so a car is must! We would definitely stay here again! We loved our stay!

My husband and I, and our two young daughters, enjoyed a lovely stay at the Granary. My parents live in the vicinity, so it was a perfect base for us to visit them and other family members. The cottage was spacious yet cosy and felt very welcoming. Also, while close to the owner's home, it felt separate. The owners were friendly and discreet. The kitchen was very well equipped, there was plenty of hot water and the shower was nice and powerful. Important! The only downside for us was the lack of wi-fi or internet connection - if this could be arranged, this rental cottage would be our ideal Welsh bolt hole!
Mr Foster

A very nice property with comfortable beds. All very clean and well looked after and good off road parking.
December 2009
A warm welcome from the owners. The cottage was immaculate, the beds extremely comfortable. A good location for Chester but the trek up Snowdon was the best. Definately avoid Rhyll !!!
September 2010
