The owner has thoughtfully provided bathrobes and slippers for your convenience. If you are looking for peace and tranquillity, then this is the place for you.
The apartment is situated on the outskirts of the small hamlet of Dolphin, with its 16th-century Inn, which is within a 5-minute walk of Acorns. Located just a short drive from the A55 express way, it is an ideal base to discover North Wales and Cheshire. The famous 7th-century St Winefride’s Well, one of the Seven Wonders of Wales, is a short distance away, along with the 12th-century ruins of Basingwerk Abbey located within the grounds of the Greenfield Valley Museum Heritage Park. An hour’s drive will take you to the magnificent mountains of Snowdonia and Llandudno, or you can enjoy the many walks available including the open common area of Halkyn Mountain, Pennant Way, Offa’s Dyke and The Welsh Coastal Path.
Within driving distance is the pretty market town of Mold, with the famous Clwyd Theatre Cymru, which offers many excellent productions, and the lively street market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Visit the historic town of Holywell, just 1½ miles away, enjoy a day at the attractive resort town of Prestatyn or relax at Talacre Beach with its Nature Reserve, both within 10 miles. Situated over the England–Wales border, The Wirral, Liverpool and the historic city of Chester with its famous Rows, Roman walls, Racecourse Zoo, shops and restaurants, all make great days out. There are many castles and beautiful gardens to discover including the must see Bodnant Gardens in Snowdonia and Ness Gardens on The Wirral. Beach 11 miles.

    The most relaxing and chilled out place with a hot tub to die for. Clean, comfy and a real home from home with everything you could need. Great oldie worldie pub about a three minute walk from Acorns and a Gastro Pub called Stamford Gate a couple of miles drive away; perfect. The only improvement I would make is perhaps having a smart tv in one of the rooms or access to either Netflix or Amazon Prime so that guests can login to their own accounts to watch films/series etc. Liz was warm and welcoming and it was clear to see how keen she was for us both to enjoy out break, which we did very very much. Highly recommend visiting here and I have no doubt that my partner and I will be back. Sam and Ryan

    Made to feel welcome from the start the cottage is very clean and modern throughout. The hot tub was cleaned/checked daily that we was there. There are some local shops however if you want to eat out then you’ll need to drive to neighbouring towns! But don’t let that put you off!! I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a relaxed quiet break!
