North Wales Borders

The North Wales Borders is situated in the north east corner of Wales with easy access from England and the conurbations of Liverpool, Manchester and the west Midlands. But it’s well worth visiting from further afield as it provides for a lovely holiday location in a most beautiful region of the UK. It’s a region that has much appeal to holidaymakers with great days out and places to visit and also conveniently placed for trips to the north Wales coast and even Snowdonia.

Offa’s Dyke, once a fortified boundary between the kingdoms of Mercia and Powys is today better appreciated as one of the UK’s most popular walking trails. At nearly 200 miles long the path takes in some of the region’s most spectacular landscapes including the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley which are Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

An equally splendid display of regional heritage can be found at the Llangollen Canal. In recent years UNESCO made over 10 miles of this wonder of engineering, including the amazing Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a World Heritage site. At 1,000 feet long and 126 feet high it spans the beautiful Dee Valley and carried over 1,000 canal boats over the bridge every year.

The Clwydian Range, designated an AONB, extends over 35 kilometres of limestone cliffs and heather clad moorland and is the perfect place for walkers who come to appreciate the wonderful scenery of this part of Wales. Walkers should also head for the Dee Valley, which offers a 15 mile walk from either Llangollen or Corwen, or if this sounds a bit extreme you could consider a leisurely trip down a canal on a horse drawn canal boat.

The region has its fair share of lovely towns and villages to explore, for example the lovely little market town of Wrexham offers a range of heritage sights alongside a number of contemporary attractions and Chirk is an equally attractive proposition with a castle, aqueduct and championship golf course. Mold in Flintshire has street markets, historical buildings and a leading theatre and Denbigh has strong historical roots with a medieval castle and castle walls, museum and art gallery.

This compact area of north Wales has a lot to offer; blissful relaxation, beautiful countryside, great outdoor activities and fascination towns and villages.

    Just a few minutes walk from the beach, guests of all ages will be delighted at this well-equipped, detached holiday property, which is well placed for exploring the north Wales coast. Located on a quiet residential cul-de-sac and enjoying a corner plot with plenty of parking, Smitten Cottage offers spacious and comfortable accommodation close to one of north Wales’ most popular beach resorts. Just half a mile from Rhyl town centre and a short walk to the lovely sandy beach, this contemporary property has been thoughtfully renovated to provide many comforts that one expects from a holiday home. The ground floor benefits from a fantastic open plan living area which really lets in the light, making this a very bright and airy space. There is a spacious living area with large flat screen TV, and a well-equipped kitchen/dining room with French doors leading to the enclosed patio. Upstairs, there are four good sized bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, and a family bathroom. Rhyl has plenty of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Younger children will enjoy the funfair and amusements on Rhyl promenade, as well as the SeaQuarium, Drift Park and Marine Lake with miniature railway.

    The equally popular resort of Prestatyn is connected to Rhyl by miles of sandy beach and lies just 3 miles away. It offers some great retail and leisure facilities including cinema, bowling, golf club and a leisure centre with swimming, gym, café and children’s play area. Another of Prestatyn’s most popular attractions is Offa’s Dyke footpath, a famous 176 mile national footpath which follows the border between Wales and England. If 176 miles is too long, why not try the shorter North Wales Path which connects Prestatyn to the city of Bangor in the west? Apart from being a great area for walking and cycling, other activities available locally include golf, sailing, kite surfing and water sports. Rhyl’s Marine Lake is the only salt water lake in north Wales and here the more adventurous can try their hand at canoeing, water skiing, wake boarding and knee boarding.

    Smitten Cottage has the best of both worlds making it the ideal choice for singles, couples and families. Come and enjoy a relaxing and comfortable break by the sea, or venture out and explore many attractions. Places of interest include Bodelwyddan Castle, 6 miles, Bodnant Garden, Colwyn Bay, Conwy, the charming Victorian seaside town of Llandudno and the Great Orme, which are all under 20 miles away. Betws-y-Coed and the Snowdonia National Park are 30 miles away and provide a stark contrast against the coastal landscape.
