Situated in the wonderfully stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is also perfect for walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers, wildlife lovers, artists, photographers, spa lovers, yogi’s and yogini’s! Beehive Cottage enjoys an idyllic, peaceful location and is set in stunning scenery that no photograph can do justice. This detached, former stable has been lovingly transformed into a beautiful holiday sanctuary and the owner, a holistic therapist, has paid attention to every detail to ensure that visitors experience the same sense of well-being that her clients enjoy from their treatments. The open-plan living area with a cosy wood burner has full width patio windows from which to enjoy the lovely views that surround the property, so even on a rainy day you can bring the outdoors in. The comfortable and beautifully presented bedroom also has patio doors that lead directly out onto the garden. Complete with several seating areas, a private hot tub and a barbecue, the garden is the perfect place to unwind and relax. There is even a herb garden so that guests can pick their own herbs to cook with.

Beehive Cottage is located in the Denbighshire village of Bodfari, which is within the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ideal for walkers, you can access the Clwydian Way directly from the property grounds, and Offa’s Dyke footpath is just a quarter of a mile away. Beehive Cottage is also in an Area of Archaeological Interest, with the ancient hill fort Moel Caer being close by. The medieval market town of Denbigh with its castle is just five miles away. Here you will find walking tours which take you around the town and castle. This is also a great place to stock up on the essentials. Other market towns worth visiting include Ruthin, 11 miles and Mold, 12 miles. Bodfari, where the cottage is located has a small shop, which is also an art gallery and a cafe, and two pubs offering great food, one of which offers take-out food, both within a mile.

Whilst Beehive Cottage enjoys the idyllic rural location with 360° views of open countryside and rolling hills, the coast is also very accessible, and the beaches of Rhyl, Prestatyn and Talacre can all be reached within a short drive. Other places of interest within a short drive include St Winefride’s Well, nine miles, Llangollen, 28 miles, the Victorian seaside town of Llandudno and the Great Orme, 26 miles. National Trust’s Bodnant Garden, 25 miles, and Erdigg, 28 miles, are also worth a visit. Snowdonia is accessible from here and can be reached in around 45 minutes via the scenic Denbigh Moors. On the other side of the border, you can easily visit the historic cities of Chester and Liverpool. For overseas visitors, Manchester airport is just 45 minutes drive away. For evening entertainment, apart from pubs and restaurants there is Theatre Clwyd in Mold, Llandudno Theatre and Rhyl Pavillion.

Apart from being ideal for walkers, the area is fantastic for cycling. Golfers wont be disappointed either with two courses in Denbigh, five miles, and three others within a short distance.

After a busy day out exploring, you can come back and relax in the hot tub, or indulge in an on site treatment such as a Aromatherapy/sports massage, Reflexology, Indian head massages, Reiki (treatments arranged directly with the owner). Beehive Cottage was named after the owners’ love of bees and who are beekeepers themselves, but the property was originally named The Sanctuary, which says it all.

    Astonishing views, gorgeous property, wonderfully friendly owners and a great location to explore the surrounding areas. It's been such an amazing break away that we extended our stay by 2 nights. We will absolutely be back!

    Brilliant cottage with amazing view. Hot tub is a real bonus and is vey private -not overlooked or in any bodies view. Great place for stargazing if clouds allow. Kim and Angus (owners) are great, friendly and leave guests alone as much as they want. Highly recommended. Andy

    We had an absolutely lovely time. The cottage was perfect. It was like home away from home with the exception of the great hot tub. We really loved the experience of soaking under the stars & full moon. The cottage was easy to get to but far away from any hustle or bustle. Perfect for local walks and/or to explore the wider area. The house is spotlessly clean, warm well equipped, very private with the lovely owners who were very nice and helpful.

    We wanted a peaceful break without stress or being tied to a routine and this place delivered on so many levels. On arrival we had home made soda bread and scones, with clotted cream and jam, which were delicious and just what we needed after the 5 hour drive from London. Beehive Cottage was very clean, modern and spacious, perfect for a couple to stay in and such a good base to explore the beautiful countryside views and surrounding towns. The seaside town of Rhyl was only a 20 minute drive away, with a sandy beach, lovely in the hotter months. We utilised the hot tub at the cottage and went in it four times on our last day, it was bliss and we definitely want one in our back garden now!! The owners, Kim and Angus were lovely and made us feel very welcome, without intruding on our privacy. If you are prepared for the long drive to Wales, then you wont be disappointed once you get there. We loved it and can’t wait to return.

    A beautifully appointed and clean cottage which is obviously the pride and joy of Kim and Angus who were great hosts. Close enough if needed but far enough away not to be intrusive. Many thanks for a wonderful break and we will definitely be returning. Highly recommended.
